CHAINSAW COLD CB

CHAINSAW COLD CB

“An easy 9 out of 10”

Today I have a review for you guys on some Nordic chew, which for those of you who still haven’t tried it, is very much like Snus, So go give it a go.

The one I tried this time is Chainsaw Cold by V2.

The can itself has a pretty cool aesthetic to it with the slight raised text. On opening the can you are greeted by a nice strong peppermint smell that is quite punchy and sharp. There is also slight tobacco notes.

The portions themselves are quite a good size, but all the tobacco is quite compact and squashed in them so they do require a bit of fluffing before putting them under your lip.

Once you put a portion under your lip you are greeted with a nice mild tobacco/nicotine burn which I love from my Snus/Nordic chew, etc which is then followed by an even better cooling sensation. The flavor is just as nice as the smell, you get a nice peppermint flavor to start with which turns into more of a menthol flavor. The portions last about an hour and a half, which is great.

These are strong portions with about 40.5mg of nicotine a portion. So these aren’t for everyone but I loved them.

Thunder X Iceboom CB

“This has one of the freshest, nicest mint flavors”

The thunder x iceboom chewbags are part of the ever growing Nordic chew market, which V2 are leading the pack of.

These particular chew bags have a pretty good nicotine content especially compared to what else is out there.

On opening the can you are greeted by a very fresh minty smell with a slight sweetness to it almost like a tic tac. When I put a portion under my lip I was greeted by a wonderful cooling mint sensation followed by a nice powerful tobacco hit. This has one of the freshest, nicest mint flavors that I’ve had in a long time.

If you are a fan of menthol/mint flavors in general try these chew bags, but be warned they pack a nice punch. Certainly not for people who don’t regularly use high nicotine products.

These have won a spot in my regular rotation.

Al Capone Green Extra

“beautiful fresh wintergreen smell”

Hi guys,

When you first open up the tub of Al Capone Green Extra you are greeted by a beautiful fresh smelling wintergreen smell with tobacco hints as well. The smell is nice and strong and lingers in your nostrils which is awesome.

When I first put one of the portions under my lip I could immediately taste that awesome wintergreen taste and boy did it last. Could still taste the wintergreen a good 45 minutes in however after about 30 minutes you start to get tobacco flavors as well. Once again I find that chew bags seem to drip less then normal snus portions! Anyone else found it to be like this??

This is one product that I will order again for sure.

Thunder X, Chewing Bags, White Portion

“this is a really, really, really strong snus”

Hey!

I’m about to review the Thunder X, Chewing Bags, White portion. I first just want to say that the Chewing bags is really my new favourite type of pouches. They really bring out the best in every snus – honestly.

So, let the game begin. As I opened the can, I really felt the mint/menthol smell. It is something special with a mint/menthol flavoured snus – it smells extremely fresh. Every pouch is really welcomed! One thing that sort of bothered my eye, was how small packed the pouches where. It may be preconceptions, but a small packed pouch is not a strong snus.

Alright,
Once I put a pouch in I felt the menthol flavour in my hole mouth –   almost as mouthwash. Really surprised that this tiny little pouch could taste so much. So, I first tried the old-fashioned way – under the lip. It just lays there, almost unnoticed – and just spreads a mint/menthol taste in the mouth. But about 40 minutes in, it starts to run. Just small amounts at the time. Sorry for the upcoming caps lock, but DAMN – this is a really, really, really strong snus. And the fact that it doesn’t run much, you can have it in easily for 1,5 hours (that is counted from when it starts to run).

So, let’s try the best way, the chewing way. I put it in, and lightly chewed on it. It started to run about 10 minutes in, and now it run a whole lot more then when you have it under your lip. It’s on the borderline to an extremely strong snus (Almost too strong for me, and well… that says a lot, hehe) But the minus for the chewing variant, is that it doesn’t last that long. Now, I’m not an expert of creating snus – but I’m taking a wild guess that it would last longer if you packed it more. Well, let’s not get down on that road cause sure there is a bigger picture with more aspects to think about.

Anyhow. I’ve noticed a thing with the brand Thunder. And that is that they want to bring out the best of a snuser. They know how to make a strong snus, hat’s off for you guys.

So, who’s up for this snus? I am not recommending this snus to anyone that isn’t used to snusing strong pouches. But if you are – you’re up for a chock!

I’m giving this one a  – really surprised of this one, and I really enjoyed it.

Best regards
Robin

U Sample No 5 Chewing Bags

“the experience made me impressed”

Hey friends!

This review will be about U Sample No5 white portion – not only an original pouch, but also a chewing pouch. And honestly, ten fingers to God, I was a bit concerned of this one. Not about the pouch itself, but about the chewing part. Cause for me, to chew a pouch has been kind of taboo. I prefer to just have it under the lip, like a membrane to the gum.

But my best friend always says that no one remembers a chicken. So, who am I not to listen to my best friend? (don’t tell him that I said that)

After inspecting the can, I must say that it is something about it that makes it hard not to look at it. I don’t know if it is because of the red text, or the big U. But it sure is something about it! One other thing that really got my attention was two simple words “xtra strong” – perfect match.

So, once opening the can, you could feel the bergamot sting in your nose. And if you’ve read my previous reviews, you probably understand that I really enjoy it. Bergamot is always a winning concept if you want a lovely snus (at least in my book!) I decided that I would try the first pouch the old-fashioned way, under the lip. And yes, it is pretty packed, and the bags are thicker than an original. Not sure if they really are, but it sure does feel like it.

It takes about 55 minutes for it to release the nicotine, and holy smokes, it’s a strong snus. You feel the citrus-bergamot mixed flavour. And it bonds together, like a hand in a glove! It last for another hour and half, then it starts to lose intense. And it is really, really good. I would almost call it delicious!

And now, the concerned part. It’s finally time to test the chewing part of it. And after reading instructions on how to chew it, I began to chew it very gentle. And it didn’t take long for the nicotine to kick in. We aren’t talking even 20 minutes. But wow, this was now a totally new snus. It runs pretty much, but not too much. And it’s even stronger now than before. But the downside of it, is that it didn’t last that long now. It almost made an hour extra though. But I must say, that the experience made me impressed. My concern is now an conviction – chewing snus is snus 2.0.

BRAVO to the makers of it – I’m giving it a 

Best regards,
Stay well!

Thunder Mel Oh!

“I could keep it in for more than an hour, suprisingly with the aroma still intact”

Thunder Mel Oh! Chewing bags

The very first time I tried melon-flavored snus, I was on vacation on an swedish island called Gotland. I remember I liked it so I was really glad to try the Thunder Mel Oh! I ignored the fact that it’s chewing bags beacuse of an earlier bad experience I had, and I’m just gonna use it as reguar snus.

When opening the can the smell of melon hits me, it smells lovely, fruity and fresh. I’m intrigued. The pouches are a bit dry but that’s because they are chewing bags. Putting a pouch under my lip it takes a few minutes for the snus to get moist, but when it does I can really taste the melon; it tastes great! After about five minutes I can feel the nicotine giving my body the calmness it wants, this snus is pretty strong! And because the pouches are dry (if you don’t chew on them first) I could keep it in for more than an hour, suprisingly with the aroma still intact. I understand why this snus is popular! I feel like the Thunder Mel Oh is the perfect snus for summer. A glass of rosé by the ocean, warm summer breezes and cool summer nights out dancing under the star-filled sky.

Thunder Ultra Winter G

“one of my favorite wintergreen products”

Today we will be talking about the Thunder Ultra Winter G chewing bags!

When you open up the can you are greeted with a beautifully familiar smell of wintergreen with tobacco hints in the background which I’m sure we have all come to live through our snus usage, I mean I know I do!!

The taste is very typical of wintergreen snus if not a bit more mellow then normal but it was nice and long lasting, with it lasting around 75 minutes before the flavor wasn’t noticeable anymore, and next to no dripping at all until about 35 – 40 minutes which is amazing.

This has been my favorite Nordic chew that I’ve tried so far and one of my favorite wintergreen products full stop. I recommend all you wintergreen fans to try it

An easy 

Will definitely be having this one regularly without a doubt.

Jakobssons Wild Mint CB

“distinguished chilly tingling sensation when placing it under the lip”

This one was a bit tricky… Jakobsson’s Wild Mint chewing bags are not that different to Jakobsson’s snus to be honest. The difference is only noticed under the lip, due to tobacco being cut differently. The trick is to chew the bag gently several times to get that nicotine and taste kick sooner.

So, let’s go to the can, shall we… Jakobsson’s Wild Mint CBs has a gentle but stable and quite distinct mint flavor with a hint of herbal scent, and quite a scent it is… When you open the can, you immediately get slapped by a sharp smell of menthol, spearmint, multiple herbs and peppermint. Just to enhance the aromas and smell, the bags are moist as well, so there will be no problem with almost instant aroma and nicotine kick.

Since we are talking about a mint CB, there is that distinguished chilly tingling sensation when placing it under the lip, and it expands through your breathing cavities – mouth and nose both! It tastes quite sweet, like candy made of mint mixed with a dash of chocolate (even though the chocolate is not present), the peppermint, spearmint and menthol are balanced quite nice, and herbal presence is just right (it only accents out the aroma, which is a nice touch). The thing that is odd here, you almost can’t even taste the tobacco, which can be a deal breaker for some consumers.

Nicotine kick is quite fast, and does not wear off so easy. Flavor time-span is on the low side, takes up to 45 minutes to wear off completely, and it’s kind of a bummer to lose the taste so fast. Trust me, you’ll want to have that thing in your mouth for at least 1.5 hours after you get addicted to it. That’s what she said… 😊
This one is quite tricky to put a grade without some good thinking… On the plus side, we have aroma, great kick, almost instant effect; but on the other hand we have almost no tobacco taste, low aroma time-span… Leaving it on the down note, in hope they fix either the taste or aroma lasting:

Thunder Cool M

“Thunder Cool M would be great with a cold mojito!”

Thunder Cool M Chewing bags are the same brand as the Mel Oh, but this snus is mint-flavored.

It has a really strong scent of menthol, very fresh but I have to be honest, I do miss the mix of flavored mint with tobacco-scent. As soon as I pop a pouch under my lip it gets really refreshing, almost like a small ice-bag in my mouth. It stings right away, and the feeling gets to my head which I love about snus in general. As you may already know, I’m not the biggest fan of mint-flavored snus, but this hits me good.

I think the Thunder Cool M would be great with a cold mojito! It takes a good ten minutes before the nicotine really starts to kick in because the Thunder Cool M is almost numbing the lip (in a good way). After about 15 minutes I started to feel a bit of sweetness to the taste which was suprising, but I’m not really convinced that it’s a good mix. Although those are chewing bags they are not that dry, and I did not chew on them because they felt like regular snus. I had a pouch in for about 30 minutes before I felt it was enough, because the mint-taste started to fill my mouth way too much. If you like the flavor this is of course a good thing.

To sum up, I liked it at first but the taste just takes over the nice refreshing taste which is pretty sad.

Thunder Liq+

“great from the moment I opened the can”

So today I’m gonna to be reviewing the Thunder Liq+ chewing bags for you all.

First of all I want to say don’t be scared to try Nordic chew/ chewing bags because they are pretty much identical to portion snus! So go on and try them.

Right so the Liq+ chew was great from the moment I opened the can, when I opened up the can I was greeted with the nicest aroma of licorice you can imagine with slight tobacco notes coming through after a few moments.

The taste was super you get a very nice and strong licorice taste from the start (but not to overpowering) after about 15 minutes I could start to taste the tobacco more then the licorice but it was still great.

I have always found that with Nordic chew the flavors seem to last a bit longer, I mean this particular one was still good about an hour and 15 minutes later and the dripping takes a lot longer to start I didn’t notice a single drip until about 45 minutes had gone by.

I really enjoyed the Thunder Liq+ and will definitely be getting it again.
