Åreprillan - Two new products from Gotlandssnus! 27 March 2018.
Flavor description: "Åreprillan IPA Portion has a clear and full-bodied taste of hops, with undertones of IPA as well as elements of meadowsweet from the Jämtland mountains. The snus contains large, strong original portions with a nicotine content of 14 mg/g."
Obviously, this is the one I'm the most excited about. The IPA/beer inspired snus trend is something new, but I'm glad to see it happening. Recently, Conny Andersson's Hope and Glory IPA Snus, a personal favorite of mine, had been discontinued. That was a delicious IPA inspired snus that paired very well with beer. Swedish Match also recently released Göteborg's Rapé Humle, which wasn't as good as the Hope and Glory IPA, in my opinion. So, there haven't been any IPA snus products on the market for me to pair with beer. I'm glad to see Gotlandssnus filling the void!
Flavor description: "Åreprillan Original Portion has a classic snus flavor with notes of spruce and birch sap. The snus contains large, strong original portions with a nicotine content of 14 mg/g."
This one sounds like it will be pretty good as well. You can never go wrong with spruce in a snus, it always adds a nice backbone to a good tobacco flavor. Gotlandssnus has always used quality tobacco, so I have a feeling it will have a great taste. I'm interested to see how the birch sap works in the flavor, as well.
