Manufactured by the Pinkerton Tobacco Company of Kentucky, USA, Longhorn Mint Long Cut is a discount dipping tobacco aimed at those who are on a budget as it has quite a low price even for discount brands! Each can of Longhorn Mint LC comes with 1.2 oz (34.02 grams) of tobacco per can.
After opening my can, I soon began to notice an aroma of fresh mint and not much else in the background. Once I packed a regular sized lip, I began to notice the mint taste almost immediately. The mint was a bit artificial tasting and it had some sweetness to it which reminded me of candy mints. I can’t say that anything in particular stood out in regards to taste, and the sweetness created quite a bit of juice at the beginning. Around twenty minutes the mint flavor began to subside, and a bland (yet slightly bitter) flavor began to take over which I can’t say that I particularly enjoyed. On average I left pinches in for around half an hour before removing them due to a drop off in flavor and a lack of a satisfying buzz.
The grind was typical of a long cut, and I didn’t have too much trouble packing a lip or taking it out. However, I did find the nicotine strength to be fairly low and found myself taking larger than usual pinches in order to catch only a slight buzz. Using more dip to get a buzz comparable to other brands means that you’ll go through cans faster, and you may find yourself buying more cans than usual to make up for the difference in strength which can potentially offset the lower price per can.
Overall, I can’t say that I’m a fan of Longhorn Long Cut. The taste isn’t particularly satisfying, and the flavor drops off quickly after taking a pinch. I would only recommend Longhorn Mint to those who really need to save money and are willing to compromise flavor for price.
