Viking Blonde is a sheep in wolf's clothing. This perfectly disguised tobacco powder is a ringer for a high dry toast, including a nice light color, a medium fine crumb with the requisite toasty aroma. The taste is quite comforting and has the pleasant reminder of fresh baked bread with a dollop of butter. The moisture is medium dry and provides a sharp bite to the nose that abates quickly and the nicotine is moderate but long lasting. A very enjoyable alternative to the harsh and overpowering effect of many dry toasted snuffs. Well worth a try and beware this can become a very enjoyable practice.

Viking Blonde is arguably the lightest and least challenging snuff in the Viking range, but it has a tremendous amount to offer. Out of the tin, this snuff appears light brown and delivers earthy, toasty aromas with touches of smoke and barnyard funk. Once it hits the front of the nose, it delivers a pleasant blend of hay, straw, grass, mushroom, earth, leather, smoke, and toast aromas with slight lemony undertones. The grind strikes me as being medium-fine. Moisture content is on the drier side of medium. The nicotine content is more or less medium. Overall, this snuff is incredibly easy to take. I get no sharpness out of it. It sits in the nose well and delivers just enough nicotine for a pleasant experience. If one is looking for a light, easygoing everyday snuff or a likable introduction to unscented snuffs, one could do far worse.
For those that like a high dry toast, this is your snuff. I prefer something with more moisture. It's certainly not a bad snuff but just be aware that it is very dry. I always try to tap the tin down and open it carefully, but even when I do that, this snuff tries to puff itself all over my shirt when I open it. The flavor is smooth and the vitamin N is medium to mild. You could use this all day if you take care of your nose. It was not a bad experience, but not my cup of tea.
Not gonna lie: I tried the Bernard Klostermischung before I tried this one, so maybe my review is a bit biased. I tend to like strong flavors, which this one definitely isn't. But for what it is (i.e., a good dry toasty snuff that's easy on the nose and not overbearing in the nicotine department), it's a good snuff for general use, especially for those who are new to the art of snuffery. May be good as a base for adding other snuffs/flavors on your own as well, but good by itself.
This is an update from one I made a couple days ago just received my shipment and have tried it! Being a first time user it's hard for me to describe it, definitely smell earth tones definitely got a burning sensation, don't know if I'm doing it right but my nose does kind of hurt feels like I got a cold so other than that I kind of like it!
I've had a lot of natural flavor snuffs and Viking Blonde is by far my favorite. I use it all day, everyday. You can't go wrong with this. It's so easy to take. Maybe a little light in the nic but considering how soft it is, yo can just take huge bumps so it evens out. If you're on the fence, get off and buy as much as you can afford!
