“a go-to snus to get you through the day”
Do you enjoy frugality as much as snus? If so, V2 Tobacco’s Offroad Original portion snus should be at the top of your list. But what is wrong with being cheap? I argue nothing is. This may not be the snus you turn to when sitting in front of your fire place and reading the unabridged version of Les Misérables, and you certainly won’t impress a Swede (especially because it is Danish), but I wholeheartedly argue this snus should not be overlooked. This snus may not shine, but it does not shrivel. Instead it delivers a middle of the road, yet admirable, snus experience at a very reasonable price.
This snus has a strong, sweet, citrus and bergamot flavor. To some, it will be overpowering – and it is strong – however I think this flavor compliments the light tobacco undertone of the snus nicely. It is not a subtle or complex flavor, and it will surly disappoint the more refined and discriminating. Admittedly, I would not serve this snus to anyone I wanted to impress. You might want to be careful what you drink while using it, too. Still, overall the taste is agreeable and entirely appropriate as a go-to snus to get you through the day.
Offroad Original has an average, and I would say appropriate, nicotine content. You can feel it carefully creep in during the first two minutes, stay for about twenty minutes, and then gently wash out. Those who need a nicotine rush will want to upgrade to Offroad’s bigger brother, the Thunder line of snuses, however I think the nicotine is well balanced in this snus and makes for a rather delightful experience. It might not wake you up in the morning, yet I can say that without a doubt that it gets the job done and doesn’t leave the user disappointed.
Overall, this snus rates a . There is no getting around the fact that this is a mediocre snus. While I enjoy this snus, I would be lying if I said it was great. It’s not. But frankly, it also isn’t offensive. Furthermore, given its typically price, and the fact that it is almost always on sale, I argue it punches well above its weight and is a better option than quite a few more expensive snuses that don’t measure up to the cash you are throwing down.
