More info

General Mackmyra is a tobacco-centric snus flavored to contain a subtle tone of fruit with notes of cedar and Mackmyra Svensk Ek Whisky. Svensk Ek, or 'Swedish Oak', is matured in barrels made from oak trees planted on the island of Visingsö centuries ago, oak originally intended for shipbuilding.  These trees are better served aging this wonderful snus!

In creating General Mackmyra Whisky loose snus, Swedish Match and Swedish Whisky maker Mackmyra Swedish Whisky combined their expertise in tobacco blending and whisky making over a roughly 18 month development period.

On the General Snus side,  Master Tobacco Blenders Lars Jonsson and Mattias Schyber joined with Mackmyra Master Whisky Blender Angela D'Orazio to create the unique and quite tasty snus.

As a Swedish Snus Lord I, Moe Unz, am very impressed with General Mackmyra Whisky Snus and have already added it to my regular rotation.

It's solid stuff.

I personally liked Probe Whiskey (even though many folks hated it). I have no idea why we replaced it, or why folks disliked it so much, but this is definitely a different ball game.

First off upon opening the shipping package I could immediately smell this stuff still in unopened cans. It smells heavenly. I don't know how to describe it other than "fruit". It's some type of fruit but who knows what exactly. Grind wise it's very easy to work with. Leaning more towards the play dough texture, but not being the same consistency as Prima Fint.

Taste wise all I really get is salt and mild citrus notes. There is definitely some General Classic mixed in here. Then you can catch a taste of that fruitish flavor. I'm not much of a whiskey drinker so maybe that's what I'm getting....I have no idea but it's not offensive in the slightest.

I'm more of a budget snus guy, so unless it goes on another 10 for 5 sale I'll probably pass as it's pretty pricy. But for the gamble of buying bulk snus I have never tried I'm pretty impressed.

Excellent flavor!

I find this to be the best whisky snus on the market. If we HAVE to compare whisky snus flavors, the General Mackmyra is closer to the first Islay Whisky batch than the Crafted offering, mainly because the strong dark chocolate flavor/odor that Crafted sports is not there at all. Mackmyra has a nice, mellow background sweetness like Islay Whisky.

When you first open the can, you get a well balanced split between a nice, robust tobacco scent and a tantalizing and true whisky scent. Neither is overpowering, and are very complimentary to each other.

The grind is very similar to what you'd expect from General's regular lös, not as coarse as something like Grov lös, nor as fine as Skruf lös. The snus is appropriately moist.

General Mackmyra is easy to bake, if you bake your lös. I am more of a hillbilly pincher, and that works perfectly, too.

The flavor showcases the robust tobacco scent I mentioned earlier, and is rounded out by mellow whisky and tar flavors with just a hint of mild fruit that comes on after I've had the pinch working for 15-20 minutes. The flavor is long lasting, and I've had pinches that retain their flavor up to an hour.

The nicotine effect has an onset, strength and endurance typical to regular-strength Swedish Match lös snuses.

This snus now has a permanent place in my rotation, and I am thrilled with its addition!
