Skruf Xtra Stark Snus Review

Review: Trying so much strong snus over the past year has pushed up my tolerance, a bit. Still, not for something like this…

Is the strongest snus title something even worth pursuing?


Skruf Xtra Stark is said to be 20 to 30% more powerful than Skruf Stark, which I have taken a liking to in recent months. The white variety, though. Something about original portions turns me off. I’m a little racist when it comes to snus, I guess. Although the lab series I really dig. That’s more of a halfling…

Anyway, I like the white Skruf products a lot. These look a little rough, but that’s part of what you get when your making something so damn strong. Have a look:

It’s not the prettiest portion I’ve ever seen, but still not quite cat shit

The flavor isn’t quite as nice as Xtra’s more mild cousins, either. Again, you start packing in power, and perhaps the rose flavors get pushed aside. Not to  say, however, that this doesn’t have some signature skruf flavor. It does, it’s just less distinct.

Still, I don’t know why you stop here. Why not take it to 20mg, 25mg, 45mg? Perhaps it has something to do with this.

I’m sure that later this year Thunder will come out with something stronger for me to poke fun at…

Alright, I’m taking this stuff out. And replacing it with a skruf original white… much better.

Dominant Flavors:
Sledgehammer, hints of Skruf

Buzz Factor:
Mind Bending

The Prognosis:
While I’m not a fan of this particular snus, I do like the innovation… even if it’s the kind of innovation you get with a bulldozer.

Dr. Snus Rating:

    The Lös version of this snus is much better than the portion and the flavours of bergamot and rose oil are more pronounced.

    I’ll have to give it a try.
