    I really liked this one. Has a very nice flavor, reminded me of General. I emptied the can pretty quick, really enjoying this. I'd get this one again.

      Very nice indeed, I'm getting that almost minty chocolate thing I notice with 1847, but in a good way, and in Kronan which is another one I like. Quite a subdued drip to it as well, not much burn, but plenty of flavour. The quality of General but with more depth to it, well worth a try.

        Gustavus loose is excellent. I would say that Gustavus has it's own taste that no other really have. yea it's snus and all but it has a taste that is hard to describe. someone said chocolate and i think that comes as close as anything i can think of. this is going to seem nuts but maybe a buttery chocolate but light chocolate. it's tobacco taste is there for sure. it's not real strong nic wise but i keep a can or two. as a matter of fact i took a can out about a hour ago. it's one snus that when i think of it i also think YUM YUM

          I finally got around to trying this one. The can is really cool looking, the snus potion material is really soft. Flavor is excellent. It reminds me of a muted LD. I still prefer LD, but this is a nice change once in a while. If they made it in a white, I would buy a lot more of it.

            I was really looking forward to getting Gustavos but I am not really enjoying it. The flowery taste is a bit overwhelming. I will say that this is a step up from most mint or licorice flavored stuff but it isn't anything I will order regularly.

              I've had a few portions of this so far and I'm really enjoying it. The salt content is pretty strong at first but subsides into the background shortly, allowing the bergamot, tobacco, and floral notes to come through more clearly. The bergamot is definitely there but not as pronounced as it is in something like General, with an almost anise / orange / rose tint to it. The flavoring is nice but doesn't overpower the tobacco, which has a nice richness to it as well. The chocolate flavor that some others mentioned came off to me more like a roasty-smokey background flavor that seemed almost separate from the other flavor elements, pulling everything together really nicely. I'd compare it to skruf original in certain aspects, but Gustavus definitely has a flavor of its own that's pretty hard to put into words. On a more superficial note, the black can with silver writing & anchored snus-catcher is really stunning. I'll definitely be ordering more in the future

                  It's decent. Tastes like a budget version of Camel OP with a little floral something or another thrown in there. If I had my choice give me Camel but this is still a good snus. A damn shame that JTI won't let BuySnus sell us this stuff.

                    This stuff was ok, kind of dry and I didn't like the can decent taste seemed weaker than general. The loose was better it was a strong lemon flavor not bergamont so much as lemon at least to me.

                      This is spot on. It reminds me a lot of Camel OP, the floral taste is also very present and nice. It's a really good snus, and the hinged catch lid is nice too.

                        I really like this stuff. There's no citric taste in this, just dark, mild, salt and deliciously flavored tobacco. I was lucky to get a pretty fresh batch of this snus, so my portions are not dry at all.

                        This snus is like a combination of Grov and Ettan. I haven't tried Camel, so I don't know if it tastes like that. But it does not taste like LD.

                        Great product, I love it!

                          This is delicious. I didn't expect much from it but man its good. It has a very mild/smooth tobacco flavour. Gotta get a roll of this.

                            I wouldnt compare it to general, but to grov portions ! This means that its sour and lemon tasting. It also have notes (tobacco ?) of 2 other JTI that are Camel and LD (i javent found it in other
                            Companies and its great). But it also have downside
                            of their snuses, its dripping a lot ! I liked until i found that im walking with brown teeth down the street . Like
                            The really moisten snus, but brushing teeth after every use is impossible. Update : The specific JTI aroma i suposse is the chocolate that other mentioned. But after some uses i feel like its too much chemical...
