“Subtle, yet firmly present and comfortable”
The CB (chew bag) concept seems to be really hitting it on in smokeless tobacco industry. What does that mean for us, regular snus users? Frankly, I’m great with it (I use it mostly as snus) since the majority of CB products seem to be either strong or extra strong. If you are a snus starter, these might not be just right for you to start off with, just due to nicotine amount. There is not much difference between CB and regular snus except the cut. But let’s get to the real topic today, which is Offroad’s Original CB.
First thing that can catch your glimpse is the flavor. If you inspect the product description, you will notice the traditional tobacco flavor with hints of lemon and bergamont. This is a pretty much a failsafe combo, and you can’t go wrong with it. Bergamont and lemon go along perfectly, and imbue it into quality tobacco aroma, you have a damn good product on the spot!
The tobacco in portions feels quite dry, which automatically reminded me of dry snus, that was a big plus from my side (I’m a sucker for dry snus in any form or flavor). That being said, I know I have already tried something similar before, and I believe it was also Offroad’s Gold White Dry. The similarity is remarkable, wether we are talking about taste or aroma. Another big plus if you want to switch a snuser to CB way of life.
Upon opening the can, you won’t get blasted away by any hard scents, but rather a comfortable smell of lemony tobacco with a drop of bergamont (and pepper if I am correct, but don’t hold me on spot for that). If I had to describe it in my own words, I’d say it’s a „gentleman perfume in a can“. Nothing too strong, nothing mild, just a right amount. Subtle, yet firmly present and comfortable. The CB taste comes in slowly, it takes its time, and evolves from a slight peppery lemon taste to a bergamont aroma in your nasal cavity, which is really a wonder for your smell receptors.
Offroad Original CB has a huge plus over all white dry snus I have tried, and that is the life-span of a bag. This thing easily kicks for 2 hours, up to 2.5 hours, without losing the taste, and that is another huge plus! Now, since there is no product which is actually flawless, the only flaw in this one I have noticed is the nicotine strength. Nicotine intensitiy is more of a regular, even though they seem even on the light side, but not as light as other snus with same nicotine amount.
All in all, I can not say you will go wrong with this product, it’s definitely a thing to try out, especially if you need a product which will get you used to CB. Offroad Original CB is on spot, and stands firmly with
