Nordic Spirit Review

Read on for our expert Nordic Spirit review, which will consider the different Nordic Spirit nicotine pouches available, with our favourite Nordic Spirit pouch in each strength!

Nordic Spirit Regular Nicotine Pouches Review

The regular nicotine strength from Nordic Spirit indicates that each pouch contains around 5.5mg of nicotine. This means that, by Northerner rankings, they are considered a normal strength for tobacco-free snus.

Top Regular Pouch: Nordic Spirit Bergamot Wildberry

If you've come across Nordic Spirit nicotine pouches before, you may have heard of "Berry Citrus" - this is the old name for Bergamot Wildberry pouches. Upon opening the can, the smell of bergamot and orange will greet you. As you put the pouch into your mouth, the tart berry flavour will become more pronounced than the orange, although the tart berry is still faintly present. The addition of bergamot gives the taste a familiar resemblance to traditional tobacco snus. The flavour of these Nordic Spirit nicotine pouches is consistent for up to 45 minutes.

Nordic Spirit Strong Nicotine Pouches Review

Nordic Spirit's strong category indicates that each pouch contains around 8.3mg of nicotine per pouch. This means that, by Northerner rankings, they are considered a normal strength for tobacco-free snus.

Top Strong Pouch: Nordic Spirit Mocha

For those who enjoy a sweet and indulgent flavour, Nordic Spirit Mocha is the perfect choice. You'll be welcomed by the aroma of freshly brewed black coffee and dark chocolate, which remain the dominant flavours throughout the experience. The intense flavours of coffee are complemented by subtle notes of caramel and rich dark chocolate. On average, one pouch will provide up to 50 minutes of intense flavour.

Nordic Spirit X Strong Nicotine Pouches Review

Nordic Spirit X Strong category is for nicotine pouches that contain 10.3mg of nicotine. This means that, by Northerner rankings, they are categorised as an extra strong tobacco-free snus pouch.

Top X Strong Pouch: Nordic Spirit Mint

Nordic Spirit Mint nicotine pouches are made for mint lovers. The primary tingling sensation of cooling menthol is complemented by a foundation of classic peppermint for a traditional mint nicotine pouch experience. Nordic Spirit mint nicotine pouches are semi-dry, meaning they are not super dry or too moist and have a smooth feel when you have them in place. Each Nordic Spirit Mint Pouch lasts for approximately 40 minutes, similar to most other Nordic Spirit pouches. 

Nordic Spirit New Flavours Review (2024)

Nordic Spirit recently launched new products for 2024, and the range includes four new flavours which are available at differing nicotine strengths as follows – 

  • - Sweet Mint/Raspberry: Available in a regular (5.5mg), strong (8.3mg) and extra strong (10.3mg) nicotine pouch for all experience levels.
  • - Frosty Berry/Frosty Mint: Available in a strong (8.3mg) or extra strong (10.3mg) nicotine pouch for experienced users.

Top New Flavour for All Users: Raspberry

The famed flavours of Nordic Spirit products are on full display in these new Raspberry nicotine pouches from the new range. Ideal for fans of Nordic Spirit’s Bergamot Wildberry or Watermelon flavours, these pouches, which are softer and more comfortable than anything from Nordic Spirit so far, provide a strong sweet and tangy hit as soon as you place them in your mouth. If you’re not keen on mint flavours, then you’re sure to like the fruitiness you get with these pouches.

After an initial sweet taste, sharp undertones of raspberry add to the flavour. Thanks to the increased moisture content of these new-look pouches, a long-lasting and sustained nicotine delivery is guaranteed, irrespective of the strength you choose.
