Kronan Original Strong Portion

Kronan Original Strong Portion

Kronan is a snus that Swedish Match originally launched back in 2005 as a response to  the taxes on snus rising. Kronan is a pretty divisive snus in the snus community. It’s a love/hate snus.  I know quite a few people who don’t like it, and quite a few people  who do. The divisive element is the element of dill in the flavor profile. Yes, dill, like in pickles.  No, really.

Kronan Original Strong

Opening the can, a herbal smell comes through along with some floral notes, tones of citrus, dill (yes, dill), and an earthy tobacco flavor. The portions are pretty plump, moist, and the flavor comes on quickly. In terms of flavor, the floral notes of violet are present, a light citrus, a gentle tobacco base, and yes, that dill flavor. The nicotine strength on this one hovers around the strong mark, and I’ve clocked the flavor between 43 and 56 minutes on average.

So that’s Kronan.  It’s not a snus for everybody. It’s not as bad as some make it out to be, but it’s not amazing or anything. It’s one I personally don’t use, but I know a lot of people who do. I’ll file this one under “try it for yourself”, because it really depends on you if you’re going to like it or not.
