Nick & Johnny Small Batch Licorice Slim White portion snus is a fantastic new addition to the line. It's so good in fact, I am considering forgiving them for discontinuing Nick & Johnny Black...
This morning Swedish Match made official this month's latest new snus rumor: Nick & Johnny Small Batch Snus. The first of the Small Batch series, Nick & Johnny Small Batch Licorice Slim White Portion Snus, is being released today...
I've been asked why I'm so obsessed with Captain Yankee; this is the third article I've written about it and the official release date isn't until next week.
In large part, my fascination has to do with the strong American-style branding designed for the Norwegian market and the somewhat unimaginable flavor profile.
When we published the second article; Captain Yankee Xtra Strong Americana Portion Snus: the new Nick and Johnny snus for Norway, the only flavor description we could squeeze out of Swedish Match was "a new extreme snus inspired by American flavors with a distinct taste of cherry, wintergreen and cinnamon."
Later, we uncovered another descriptor Swedish Match used for Captain Yankee: Bringing the popular concepts of Rootbeer™ and Dr. Pepper™ to the world of snus
Based on these flavor descriptions, if anyone other than Swedish Match were the manufacturer I would have stopped right there and burned the graphics out of my mind. Swedish Match has created some pretty amazing but unlikely snus flavors before so I moved forward on faith more than comprehension.
This month, I decided to mix things up a little bit. General White Portion has been my snus of choice for quite some time along with Göteborgs Rape'.
Lately, though, I've been finding myself a little bored. Unlike cigarette smokers, where (I at least) pretty much settle on a brand and stay with it for years, snus users have the occasional need to switch off to something new. Then when they ultimately come back to their former favorites, it's a new experience again.
Instead of the General White Portion, I bought a roll of Philip Morris 1847 White Portion (that's right, Philip Morris: makers of Marlboro "snus"...and don't think that didn't make me a little nervous!)
