A Pleasant Surprise

Taboca was a nice surprise for me. Personally, I think it's some of the best smelling snus I've used. I've heard that they advertise it by saying it has a lemon and fig taste, but I get lemon-lime from it (a little like what you'd imagine sprite-flavored snus to taste like). Pretty smooth and mellow, a little bitter, not much salt. Definitely very good for a value priced brand.

While the snus smells great and the flavor is initially pleasurable, an almost unbearable bitterness creeps in after 45 minutes. It's a great snus, but I wouldn't recommend keeping a portion of Taboca in for more than 30 minutes.

Priced right, Taboca holds up well compared to higher priced snus. Full tobacco flavor, moderate bergamot, with just a hint of bitter flavor, which works very well. Essentially a well balanced, "straight" flavor. Nice comfortable portions, slightly on the dry side, low drip, long lasting flavor, good nicotine delivery. Great metal can but no ashtray. A good everyday snus that could sell for full price, but doesn't. Worth a try.

I love this very classy snus. Nice neat portions, not crammed into the sharp looking metal tins. This snus has a lot of character. It's quite salty, very citrusy and bitter. Fig is present, as stated in Taboca's description. The tobacco is strong and you can tell it is 5% Cuban! This snus holds its flavor for as long as You want it to. Nic hit is also a plus. One con for me is, it does tend to run a bit too much for my preference, but it is so good I don't mind. The price is also very reasonable for such a great snus. This is sort of a "love it or hate it" snus, but you owe it to yourself to give a try.

Taboca has a raisin/fig flavor over a pretty decent tobacco. It is a bit sweeter than most Swedish snus but no more so than Goteborg's.

Flavor is incredibly well-balanced; with just the right amount of bergamot and citrus zing; and a very mild sweetness and bitterness that complements the flavor of the tobacco brought out by the salt. Overall, the flavor is reminiscent of Gotenborgs, but the sweetness is more citrusy rather than berry-flavored. Sweetness to saltiness is well-balanced, and flavors showcase, rather than mask the tobacco underneath.
Did I mention the can? This is one I can leave on the bar or my desk and invites inquisition about its contents rather than looks of disapproval for using tobacco.
Unfortunately, the portions are a bit difficult to conceal under the lip (especially for me), and a little runny but not unbearable. If Taboca decided to fire up production of the Strong Mini portion, I would be among the first in line to purchase a roll or two. Pair with: gin and tonic with lime, or anything mildly citrusy.

This is a very nice snus - its flavors are complex but subtle and well-balanced. Quality (cigar?) tobacco with a very mild sweetness and a citrus element which does not mask the tobacco. I would give this five stars except the portion size/shape is a bit awkward. A unique snus which will add variety to your rotation.
