  • Mörkbrunt Snus Loose returns from the grave today

    Mörkbrunt Snus Loose (which roughly translates to English as "Dark Brown Snus") is back as the first of SM's Historical Brand series! Created in the 1880's at JL Tiedemann's Tobacco Factory in Charlottenberg, Värmland, the history of Mörkbrunt is cloudy.

    We do know it was appropriated by the Swedish govt during the last Swedish Tobacco Monopoly in 1915. We also know that Mörkbrunt No.1 and No.2 ceased production by 1941 and then a single Mörkbrunt loose snus was produced in Gothenburg.

    After the Tobacco Monopoly ended in the late 1960's, it was spun off to a series of companies which ultimately became Swedish Match. SM produced Mörkbrunt Loose Snus until 1998 when it was delisted.

    The recipe and snus making methods changed over Mörkbrunt's 100 year history. Working from memory and legend, the Snus Scientists at SM have recreated Mörkbrunt Snus in a way reminiscent of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park.

    Mörkbrunt Snus 2018 has a dark tobacco character with clear smoke tones as well as elements of dried fruit and leather. Does it taste exactly like the original Mörkbrunt Loose Snus? There is no one living who can tell us but this is certainly a historic loose snus worth trying!
