Icetool 3ml Review

Posted by James in Snus accessories

For most of my snus career, I have been using portioned snus.  I find loose snus to be difficult to form in most cases (although some brands such as Ettan are quite easy to form), and whenever I would attempt it, my portions would fall apart in my hands. However, A few days ago, I was fortunate enough to receive a sample Icetool straight from th

A Wet Wet Month

Posted by James in Snus experiences

Having gone all winter somehow managing to avoid getting sick, I became ill with a pretty nasty cold for most of last week.

Oden’s Extreme Portion Review

Posted by James in Snus reviews

Oden's Extreme is a newly released snus from GN Tobacco which packs quite a punch. At 22mg of nicotine per gram of snus, Oden's extreme is by far the brand of snus with the highest nicotine content. Upon receiving a few cans to try, I was both excited and a little worried. I generally tend to use regular and strong portion snus, so I'm not used to
