  • Los (Loose)

    Well Hello There!

    As a relative newbie to snus I was wondering if I could get any recommendations for trying a loose snus. (Never tried one before!)

    I enjoy wintergreen flavors as well as some of the spicy flavors(Pepper, Cinnamon,Clove). I'm not a huge fan of bergamot and citrus.

    Also, Should I be expecting the loose to be essentially equivalent to a portion but in a loose form? Or is the loose snus somehow different than what's inside the portions?

    Thanks so much!

    I'm not all that experienced myself but for a slightly peppery Lös I would suggest Oden's Orginal Extreme if you enjoy a high nicotine snus.

      Thanks so much for the recommendation! I have added it to my cart for the next order.

      Thanks again!

        I like Swedish Match lös products - they're very easy to work with and the best to practice handbaking with. Prima Fint has been my favorite for 8 years now - it's a very natural, neutral tobacco taste. Roda Lacket is good, it has a dried fruit flavor. Göteborg's Rapé is a favorite. Grov is good for a straightforward tobacco taste. And General of course. Can't beat General.

            Los is my mainstay and I only use portions when discretion is required. In general there will be a taste difference between los and its portion version. For example, a lot of folks get a chocolate back note from Ettan portions that is just not there in the Los.

            As far as where to start:
            Mustang is a really good straightforward snus
            Grov and Ettan are both great to start with and are classics
            Knox will give you a good dose of pepper
            I like General ES los (it is one of my favorites). It too has a good pepper presence

            Chad loves Prima Fint.......I could never taste it. It was just so mild flavor wise. Still it is very much worth a try (everybody's taste are different)
            Same with regular ol General- to me it tastes like putty (however it is the single best selling snus in the world- so that should tell you how much I know)

            Anyway try a variety and find a few that you like.

            In the meantime you might want to check out the Dipper's Guide to Snus- it is about all things los a lot of folks have contributed a lot of good info and tips that you may find helpful. You can find the Guide here: LINK
