Produced by GN Tobacco, Clove Explosion White is a clove flavored snus with an extra strong nicotine kick. Containing 85% snus and 15% cloves, Oden’s Clove Explosion White contains no extra flavor aside from organic cloves from Indonesia. Every can of Clove Explosion White comes with 13g of extra strong snus per can, with a whopping 27mg/g of nicotine! As there’s no other clove flavored snus blends on the market, I was really curious to see what a clove flavored snus would taste like and so I was excited when my can of Clove Explosion White arrived!
Soon after opening my can of Clove Explosion White, I began to notice a strong, rich aroma of cloves which I found to be quite enjoyable for someone who used to enjoy clove cigarettes from time to time. A few minutes after putting a portion in my mouth, I began to notice the taste of cloves as well as a hint of spicy tobacco in the background. I’m not exactly sure why, but the taste reminded me a bit of Julesnus (which I’m a huge fan of), and I found it to be very rich and savory. The clove taste remained present for around forty minutes, and afterwards I began to taste subtle hints of salty tobacco which became increasingly strong around the one hour mark.
The portions were of average size and they fit comfortably in my lip. As a white portion snus, Clove Explosion has a moisture content of around 50%, making it just moist enough to be soft to the touch. On average, it usually took around three minutes for a nicotine buzz begin to set in, and it began to feel quite strong starting at the five minute mark. I generally kept portions in for nearly an hour before removing them due to a loss of flavor.
As a whole, I must say that I found Clove Explosion White to be absolutely delicious, and its currently my favorite offering from GN. I recommend it to those who enjoy the taste of cloves and spices, and I definitely see myself adding Clove Explosion to my daily rotation in the near future. I find Clove Explosion White works especially well as an after dinner and before bed snus when I’m looking for something tasty as well as relaxing!
