Released just this Spring by the snus giant Swedish Match, General G.3 Volt Dry White Portion is Swedish Match’s strongest snus and its first foray into the ever popular ultra strong snus market. Every can of G.3 Volt comes with 24 portions of snus, each with .69 grams per portion with a nicotine content of roughly 18mg per portion, ranking it up there with the likes of Thunder Ultra Strong and the Oden’s Extreme lineup.
Soon after opening my can of G.3 Volt Dry, I soon began to notice a strong and natural peppermint aroma which I found to be very pleasant and not much else. Once I put a portion in, I began to notice a slight cooling sensation paired with a sharp bite of peppermint, and I found the balance to be highly satisfying. The peppermint wasn’t overly sweet, and also didn’t find that it became bitter over time like some peppermint brands do. I also noticed a slight burning sensation which reminded me of Skruf Original and was pleasurable without being too overbearing. After about twenty minutes, the peppermint flavor slowly began to weaken and was complimented by a mild tobacco taste which remained in the background for the rest of the time I had my portion in.
The portions are long and slim, and they fit comfortably in my upper lip. I find the material to be very soft, and it reminds me of the Natufibe material used in General Tailored. The portions were dry but still a tiny bit moist, and as a result I found that it took a little over five minutes before I began to feel the nicotine kick really set in, but once it did it was strong and enjoyable. I generally took portions out around the half hour mark as I normally use regular strength portions and found them to be quite strong! I experienced very little drip with this one, and even if I left my portions in for an hour I wouldn’t expect much drip due to Swedish Match’s formula.
As a whole, I highly recommend General G.3 Volt Dry White to those who are looking for a tasty mint flavored snus with a very strong nicotine kick. Personally, I find higher nicotine brands to make me sleepy, so I generally found myself enjoying portions of G.3 Volt as a nightcap before bed. However, as with all ultra strong snus brands, I advise you to be careful as the experience can be quite intense for those with a low nicotine tolerance!
