General Harvest Original Portion Snus

In the beginning, there was tobacco, water, and salt and it was called snus.  Over the centuries, natural and later artificial flavorings were added, pH enhancers, and other chemicals to increase nicotine strength or extend the life of the snus joined them.  But in the end, tobacco, water and salt was what made the snus and those are the only ingredients in General Harvest Original Portion Snus...

In designing General Swedish Harvest Limited Edition snus, Swedish Match started with the; the tobacco. 

.

I, Moe Unz, do not have the English skills of Linda Nordebäck, Marketing Manager at Swedish Match, so I will let her pick up with her magical description of General Harvest.  Note that I can still drink her and anyone else at Swedish Match under the table when it comes to whisky!

.

General® Harvest is made from carefully selected air-dried raw tobacco, so-called Dark Air Cured, from southern Brazil. The raw tobacco gives a special character to the snus and an aroma with hints of dried fruit, cocoa and hay. The product contains no added aromas or spices, instead it is the base ingredients that are the flavor carrier.
.
 
Many snus products today have added flavors or spices, with General® Harvest we let the tobacco stand for the taste. Then the choice of raw tobacco becomes decisive, just as different grapes put the stamp on a wine. The tobacco we have chosen gives a rich aroma of hardwood, cocoa and dried fruit with a pleasant bitter and complex taste.
.
 
General® Harvest comes in two versions, General® Harvest Original portion and General® Harvest White portion, where General® Harvest Original is moist on the surface for a quick and powerful taste and nicotine release while White portion is dry on the surface for low flow and a lasting taste and nicotine release.
.
Both versions of General Harvest are now available at the legendary SnusCentral Snus eShop.  This is only fitting as the first SnusCentral store, , was established in 1077 AD by Edvin Unz, as highlighted in this 2014 article.
.
 
General Harvest Snus comes 24 one gram portions per can.  This is a regular strength snus with a nicotine rating of 9 mg/g.
Sadly, both General Harvest Snuses are available as Limited Editions from Swedish Match.  Once they have sold out, that is end of General Harvest.  So grab your hands full of Swedish Snus History before it passes into legend like Edvin Unz.

On a desert island with one snus....

I've never been able to answer this question absolutely. There are so many great snuses out there (or now delisted) that I could never narrow my favorite portion snus down to one... until General Harvest Original Portion. If I was stuck on an island with a case of snus, I could be happy with General Harvest. There are a number of others I'd like to have too but given the choice of only one, this is it. Too bad it's a limited edition. :-(

One of the greatest of all time.

Shame it's a limited edition. One of the best tasting products I've had yet.
