60 SECOND CIGAR REVIEW - Cornelius & Anthony Daddy Mac

Lundgrens Västkusten Vit Snus Review

(Snubie) Lundgrens Västkusten is a semi-new product from Fiedler and Lundgren. I say "semi-new" because it's basically the same thing as Lundgren's Marstrand, which was a limited edition product I reviewed back in 2018.

Drew Estate has made it known that the company opposes the “factory seconds” style sometimes released by other factories—that is, offering cigars that didn’t meet quality standards for regular-production brands at discounted prices.
But this mindset doesn’t, however, extend into the category of “bundle cigars,” as Drew Estate debuted a line of four cigars in 2018, intended to offer consumers an extreme value, while maintaining Drew Estate’s unorthodox flair. Continued
