Wonderful treat

This snus is absolutely delicious! I was skeptical at first because I am not a fan of whiskey. However, the whiskey taste is not overbearing and highly compliments the wonderful blend of premium tobaccos. While it smells like a bottle of whiskey, the taste itself is a delicious spiciness and does not produce the nausea that drinking a cup of whiskey does. The taste of the tobaccos is excellent and far more sophisticated than the othe snuses out there. I've tried many many brands and this will be one of my go-tos along with General original and Nick and Jonny snuses. I will be ordering multiple rolls of this next time for sure because I'm nervous that it won't be around forever. I wish there were more artisan snuses like this on the market. Go Conny, we love you over here in Murica!

A promising start, but needing much improvement

There are several things I like about this snus, and I'll start with those.

- Strong nicotine content
- Good initial flavor
- Good whisky profile in the flavor

Having said that, there are a lot of things about this snus that need improvement. First and foremost is the arc of the flavor profile. It starts out strong, with dominant whisky notes and good tobacco flavor. However, the whisky flavor doesn't last very long. The portion turns bitter and salty very quickly, and the whisky notes fade until the dominant note becomes cedar.

Drip is hellacious. This is a very peppery snus, and on more than one occasion the drip has spiced my throat badly enough to give a sensation of choking, and has even triggered hiccups. More than once, I have had to spit out the portion after less than five minutes and rinse my mouth out. This leads me to my next criticism:

Inconsistent levels of moisture from one can to the next make some portions tolerable, and other so drippy and spicy that I just can't tolerate them for very long. I ordered 10 cans from the same batch, and even still I find wildly varying levels of moisture present.

The plastic label on the can is a poor choice. Every time you open or close the can, little shreds of plastic label come off, often depositing themselves inside the can with your snus. You have to pick little pieces of plastic out or ingest them.

I much prefer the Islay Whisky Snus that Conny Anderson first made a few years back. That snus is much more refined, lasts longer, and has a more stable flavor profile. Critics of the Islay Whisky Snus often point out that the whisky flavor isn't strong enough. Well, this latest offering addresses that but sadly the flavor just isn't stable or long-lasting.

In conclusion, I like this snus but it's tough to manage. Between the horrible drip and the flavor which quickly fades from excellent to bitter, salty, and rife with cedar, I certainly would not go on a trip and pack this as my only snus. I think the original Islay Whisky Snus, which has been improved since first released, is a far superior product.

Good snus, awful tin!

I had some of this on my last order, and I found the flavor to be quite good. Strong whisky flavor with an astringent kick that is strangely present. If you want to be accutely aware that there is something in your lip, without the heavy kick of an extra strong, then this could be for you.

Then there's the tin...

It is a classy looking metal tin. The problem is, the pain flakes off! I don't know how long it had been flaking, but I have little doubt that I'd ingested some of this paint before I realized that my snus was collecting flakes of it every time it was opened and closed.

If you choose to order this snus, transfer it into an old plastic tin immediately.

Solid snus

Was a fan of Islay. Personally I think this is better though.
Notes of chocolate, vanilla, oak, nuts and roasted malts are very prevalent in this snus. Has a slightly sweet milk chocolate thing going on as well, as incredible balance to the more earthy tones. Really a treat.

Great

i was a bit scared of trying this snus, thinking it was going to be an overpowering whisky flavor. but to my surprise it has a very mellow whisky flavor with a really nice tobacco back note to it. all in all i would highly recommend trying it out.

Wow!

Crafted Snus Whisky Original By Conny Andersson has a strong tobacco flavor that is complimented by the flavors of a single malt scotch. Whoa! This ain't your girlfriends snus.

I'm not familiar with Mata Norte but I am familiar with Latakia. I don't like Latakia but the Latakia in this is okay. This flavor of this snus is stronger than it's approachable nicotine strength of 1.1%. This snus will put you somewhere between a nicotine buzz and a nicotine high.

This is an impressive snus but it's not something that I will be ordering again because it's flavor is just not for me. This is a very impressive snus though. If you love a single malt scotch and swedish snus, you'll love Crafted Snus Whisky Original by Conny Andersson.

Crafted Snus Whisky For the win!

This is by far the best Whisky snus on the market in my opinion, as soon as you pop a portion in your pallet explodes into a complexity of flavors with Deep Tobacco, Oak, Glenfarclas Whisky and hints of dark chocolate, smoke, and nuts. This replaced my beloved Skruf original portion which is hard to do!

-Nicotine is on point with a 1.1% never leaving you wanting.

-Drip is a little heavy but a bonus.

-Portions are soft and welcoming in the lip.

-The can is gorgeous and very well designed with an internal catch lid.

Conny Andersson, you have done it again! Grab a few rolls.

Finally!

First off, I liked Islay, but it had a kind of dirty feel to it that didn't improve as the batches went on.

As soon as I put one of these in my mouth I was aware that it was much different. There is a toned down almost whiskey but kind of nutty flavor at first that turned into a deep and rich whisky flavor the first time I swallowed.

In less than 2 minutes my head was rocketted into a very clear nic. which was welcome and not overwhelming.

Portions are definitely moist and run quickly, which I don't always enjoy, but in this case... Is just a bonus.

Conny has done it again.

Conny has outdone himself with this one. It is much better than Islay Whisky Snus. A much more rich, detailed and balanced flavor. This is a must try!
