  • Mustang Lös

    Just got this today. Smells a bit like a pipe tobacco bowl. Partially fresh tobacco, partially burnt remains. Has a light flavor of cherry, and a prominent flavor of burnt tobacco. Interestingly, it doesn't use smoke flavor. Salt content is relatively low for a Swedish Match product. Flavor mellows out fairly quickly, so it can be considered inoffensive. It's /ok/. I can't give a blanket recommendation to buy, but it's worth a try, especially for the price. If nothing else, it's better than Kronan, but that's not a high bar to surpass :^D

    If it could be bought over the counter, I could see getting the occasional tin, especially if I were short on money, but barring it growing on me, these will be the last two tins I get. It's no Ettan.

    Nice review brother

    I am on my first can of this and so far I really like it.

    My initial take is that the flavor profile falls somewhere between General and General ES................or a Prima Fint that you can actually taste. It is by far the best "bargain snus" I have tried (Pioneer, Kronan, Knox, Gringo). I would also buy it over several full priced snus brands out there (General, Prima to name two)

    I don't get the cherry that Lx detects.....but I do detect something going on (which may be the cherry......I'll have to spend a little time with it and see what it is)

    In my view this is well worth a try and has real rotation potential

      I'm still going with cherry. It's subtle, but that's the best approach with fruit and tobacco. If I had to say it tasted like something, I'd go with it being somewhere between Röda lös and portion. I'm liking it better as I use it. I still don't think I'll order anymore, but if I could get it over the counter, I would; short on money, or not.

        I will probably never order it online, but as you said if it was over the counter at the normal prices I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Get us some new stuff over here swedish match! This product is obviously for Americans, so why not push it in our stores.

          I was wondering the exact same thing. Why tailor a product for a market and then never release it in that market.......there is much about the Swedish Business model that baffles me.

            I haven't tried Grov or Roda Lacket yet but Mustang seems like the Maduro version of Ettan if you are familiar with cigars. Darker flavor profile less salt and a faint sweetness. So far I prefer Ettan but this isn't bad at all
