Formerly known as JTI Snus, Nordic Snus AB is a company which produces a range of interesting snus brands with Nordic Storm Slim White Fresh being one of them. Having previously reviewed Nordic Storm Large White Fresh, I was curious to see how the slim variant would stack up in terms of taste and comfort! Every can of Nordic Storm Slim White contains 24 portions, each weighing in at 0.8 grams. Individual portions contain 12.8mg of nicotine, and there’s a total of 19.6 grams of snus per can.
After opening my can of Nordic Storm Slim, I soon began to notice a cooling menthol sensation which was contrasted by notes of spicy tobacco in the background. Although the portions were fairly dry, I began to feel the cooling effect of menthol fairly rapidly, but it took around five minutes for the rest of the flavors to begin developing. At first the menthol was quite dominant, but I soon began to taste hints of fresh mint as well. After about fifteen minutes, the menthol taste began to subside and it was replaced with a slightly spicy tobacco flavor which I found to be nuanced and enjoyable. The overall taste reminded me a lot of Fresh White, with the only difference being I found the regular size to be slightly more rich in flavor due to the larger surface area (but not by much).
The portions are long and slim, and they fit comfortably in my mouth without any issues. As a white portion snus, I experienced a slow onset in terms of nicotine buzz, and when it reached full intensity it was stronger than regular portion snus but not as strong as its Fresh White counterpart. On average, I usually left portions in for about an hour and a half before removing them due to a decline in flavor.
Much like Nordic Storm Fresh White, I found Storm Slim White to be an enjoyable snus for those who enjoy the taste of menthol. If you’re not sure which variant to choose, I would say that the taste is the same, and the decision mostly comes down to preferences in nicotine strength and slim vs regular sized portions.
