This new "deluxe" snuff is described by the makers as "Loose snus with pure traditional tobacco flavour." As I like unflavored or very lightly flavored snus, I ordered a tin to try out.
WARNING! This snus is very heavily perfumed/flavored!! It was like snus soaked in some of my wife's perfume. I hated it, spit it out after only a few minutes, and threw away the tin. Now, some people will certainly appreciate this snus. But when Fiedler & Lundgren say it has a "pure traditional tobacco flavor" they are crazy. Kardus has such a flavor, Diplomat does not.
Sorry to make my first review so negative, but I wanted to make sure no other snus fans were fooled like me.

good to know, but by perfumed, do you mean like flowery Göteborgs Rapé or what?

I didn't like the stuff either. Didn't like the flavor, didnt' like the texture. I don't know that I would compare the aroma to perfume, but I was pretty potent. I also tried the portions, flavor was the same (as expected) but the portions didn't make the experience anymore enjoyable.

However, I gave the remainder of my portions can to a guy at work and he loved the stuff. He's a regular Cope Snuff dipper and this was his first dip of snus, so who knows, maybe it's for a select group.

Actually, I rather like Goteborg's Rapé...at least as a change of pace from time to time! No, Diplomat can only be described as perfumey. It isn't just a bit of essence, it's overwhelming, like cheap aftershave or something. Maybe it's just me that dislikes the smell so intensely, but still, I would never ever dare to describe it as a "pure traditional tobacco flavor." That is blatantly false and I have no idea what the makers were thinking to describe it in that way.

Göteborgs Rapé is good stuff! I loved it at first but it's now an occasional dip for me, nice change from the regular routine. It has an herbal taste to it, but not overwhelming.

My favourite portion snus used to be Prince but F&L decided to discontinue it in order to make Diplomat.

Diplomat is not a patch on Prince, but one thing it has in common is the high salt content.

I'm now on General Smile

Just got a Diplomat in my hand, snused some of them and I dont think that it is too bad. Although i really dont like Rape becuase of the flavour.
Tastes are different, but over all my favorite remains Ettan. Ettan live long, thank you Mr. Ljungloefs!!!

Cheers guys,
Tobi

I got a can of Diplomat today along with my usual Grovsnus.

I tried the Diplomant and I really liked it. It was not as floral or overwhelming as I was expecting it to be form the comments posted here. But I dont think I will make a habit of it.

Sounds like Wise Original... stale perfume and outdated Saccahrin.

Amen! Smile

My favorite time when using Ettan is after Lunch or Dinner.

As for myself, I found I like the White Portions better than the Dark ones or the Loose Stuff.
