Hello from Sunny Florida
« on: December 02, 2017, 01:53:49 PM »
Hello All  :)
Just started on my Snus journey.  Was a smoker for 40+ years and have been vaping and cigarette free for 4+ years, but something was missing.  Ran across a thread on another forum (ECF) and one of the nice people there send me a few pouches of General and Thunder Snus, WoW so much better than the Camel Snus I can get local.  As I live in BFE (middle of nowhere) there are no local places to get Swedish Snus here.  So I bit the bullet and placed an order with Snus Central, should be here first of the week.  So looking forward to trying some of the ones I ordered.  It is hard to tell what I will like as everyone has different tastes, so I got an assortment of 17 different cans.  Here is what I ordered.

Welcome also from Florida!

Looks like you have a decent variation in products there so you should get a good flavor profile development.

Yea I was a little overwhelmed at the selection  :o  I just took a couple of hours reading flavor profiles, and stayed away from the ones I was mostly sure I would Not like.  Once I get an idea from this order what I like best, my next order will be rolls of the ones I like, and a few new ones to try.  I just didn't want to order rolls and then not like it.  If I have to pitch (or give away) a can that I don't like, no big deal.

To be honest, you would be surprised on what you find you actually like.
I have liked stuff that if I read it before I would be sure that I would hate it.

It's a shame they don't have a sample pack (one or two pouches) of each of in a line.  Like General,  or Thunder (or whatever) and you could get a sample pack with one or two pouches of each of the whole line.  Then decide what whole cans you want to order.  I had a friend send me a few pouches of Thunder Gingerbread, glad I didn't get a can, NASTY Stuff.

They used to have sample packs prior to 2010.
Bergamot is a staple in snus. You will get used to it I promise.

Not sure about that, but I'm going to try the ones with Bergamont again after the first of the year.  I have been watching the reviews on the ones I ordered with my second order, and have high hopes that I have some winners with that order.  I was hoping to find a plain tobacco without mint, as I don't want mint all the time, but the plain tobacco ones seem to all have Bergamot in them, which is why my first order was a flop.  A swedish Snus something like Camel Mellow (the only American "Snus" I have tried), but not quite as sweet would be nice.

Has Bergamot, which as you said lots of snus does.

From Snus Central
Quote
Skruf Portion snus is a great tasting snus with a pure, gentle tobacco flavor containing natural aromas from bergamot and rose oil. Made with a larger proportion of tobacco leaves than traditional snus.

What about Grov Original, sounds like it does not have Bergamot in it and is more of a straight tobacco flavor?

Grov is not bad it's a little more natural tasting if that's what you are looking for. Skruf although it has bergamot its flavor is more rose oil. I enjoy bergamot. But really enjoy skruf and occasionally grov.
