I have a soft spot for The General; it was the first snus I had ever tried and is still one of my favorites. It is also one of Swedish Match’s best selling products and one of the reigning Kings of snus in Sweden. I had previously been using American Moist Snuffs, before I first tried snus, I can assure those of you who have never tried Copenhagen or Skoal but are familiar with snus you ain’t missing much. The scorched lower lip, the upon reflection over-blown flavoring, and the gritty texture of American moist snuff compares to snus like a truck stop hooker does to a debutant.

General snus in its black can makes for an attractive product before you even open it giving it a great deal of presentation appeal when it is brought out in front of those who are uninitiated in the ways of snus, and a knowing nod from those that are. The tobacco while coarse compared to other brands, is soft and dark; the tobacco scent is there as well as a hint of lemon, which to an American user is quite a surprise when the can if first opened.

It forms well and the pris stays together so that it does not require constant tonguing to keep from having a black smile. General’s citrus flavor does come through immediately, and is firm but not overpowering, and long lasting.

For any first time or new user, I would highly recommend General, to use as a reference taste, for snus that is flavored beyond tobacco and salt. Since so many other brands use citrus as an added flavor, General Snus makes for a good benchmark for comparison and you could not really go wrong in letting the General take over your snusing needs.

Yes General Lös is the best Snus ever! No snus have the same taste and flavour. I tried also other snus stuff, but forget the other kinds of snus.

I just bought General portion over the weekend and am happy with it. It's a nice taste, more 'heavy' than Catch which I have been using recently. I can only get Swedish Match here in South Africa unless I buy online, so I will have to stick to General. Not too bad in my opinion!

I totally agree with Snusfreak. General Lös has the best flavour. I also tried many other snus brands but this realy is the best one.
