General ONYX Silver

Folks, this is it. General Onyx (Silver) from Swedish Match. This snus is the true king of the mountain when it comes to class and elegance. At SnusMe.com it’s priced at $2.99 a can, but this is a snus that I’d pay much more for. It’s that special, and that good.

General Onyx Silver

The aroma is a present citrus smell which seems to be bergamot and lemon, with a nice peppery tone, and a spicy tobacco kick.

This snus is very much a General-esque snus, but slightly different. It’s not one you want to use full time, it’s one you want to keep around and use on special occasions. At least, that’s how I use it.  I know some who use it full time, so to each their own. The aroma of this one is quite present for a white portion. Yes, I know, the portion bags are black, but they’re technically white portions, just in a different color. The aroma is a present citrus smell which seems to be bergamot and lemon, with a nice peppery tone, and a spicy tobacco kick. The portions are pretty soft for a white portion, and come in the beautiful star formation! Fluff them, though, because they’re kind of wedge shaped in the can. The flavor is sublime. It’s a big citrus taste that seems to be a tart taste of lemon, with a touch of bergamot. There’s a spicy tobacco background with nice tones of pepper.  The nicotine strength feels to be just a little above the regular mark, and the flavor lasts around 55 to 62 minutes on average.

In terms of snus, General Onyx is one of the best. It’s a classy experience, and one that you really want to enjoy on a special occasion. At least, in my opinion. If you want to use it full time, that’s fine, too. But lovers of citrus and lovers of traditional snus will want to check this one out!
