HOP(E) & GLORY™
Hop(e) & Glory has been on my mind for a long time. I’m personally a great fan of craft beer. To flavor snus with hops has never been done before. I like pushing myself when it comes to experimenting with tastes and flavors. With one foot in tradition and the other in the future. In this exotic snus I took it even a stup further. I used traditional (classic) american hops to get the american west coast IPA feel. In the american IPA you’ll find herbs, pine and lemon flavors. To spice it up I used one of my personal favorite tobaccos, the Perique from Lousiana. This ads a slight round taste to the snus.
AG Snus and Craft Snus co-operation
AG Snus is a historic business owned by the Gundersen family. The Gundersens have been in the tobacco business since 1864. Their trademark is and has always been to work with the best quality tobacco there is. The have a long and finespun history and experience of working with premium products.
I’m very pleased and happy to be working with a producer that puts quality before quantity.
This is my baby, a snus I have worked on for well over a year. When you experience it, there is no coming back. That becomes your goal every time afterwards. One way of doing so is to work with the best quality.
I only work with Lamina. That’s where you’ll find all the great flavors and nicotine.
My ambition was to weave together AG’s history in this product. The Latika tobacco has a wonderful taste and aroma. Which brings you thoughts to a new tared dock. Mata Norte, the brazilian cigar tobacco, is filled dark chocolate tones. These two I barrel aged for a month in a Glenfarclas barrel. To get that extra dimension. Other exotic tobaccos I added to the blend are from Guatemala, Spain and India. And the final touch was by the single malt whisky Glenfarclas.
MELLGRENS IPA SNUS™
Mellgrens Fine Tobacco in Gothenburg has a history from back in the days when the tobacco monopoly ruled. They have an amazing shop in the center of the Gothenburg, and my favorite is their cigar lounge. They import premium cigars and pipe tobacco. They are agents for one of my favorite cigar brands, Padron.
I love a good and crafted beer. One of my all time favorites are Ballast Point Sculpin. It has everything I look for in a IPA. The grape, citrus and hop with bite! I had this in mind when I created this snus. It’s a long cut loose snus. A cut tobacco gives that cleaner taste. And of course it’s only Lamina!
