Manufactured by Oden’s GN Tobacco, Oden’s Extreme Cold Portion is a tobacco dominant snus with a bit of menthol and powerful nicotine kick. Each can of Oden’s Extreme Cold comes with 18 grams of extra strength snus (22mg of nicotine per portion!) in every can. As a fan of stronger snuses with tobacco dominant flavors, I was excited to see how Oden’s Extreme would stack up to other strong brands such as Thunder Ultra. The Oden’s line also uses a process of fire curing (rather than pasteurizing their snus like other brands) in order to create a unique taste.
Upon opening my can of Oden’s Extreme Cold, I immediately noticed a strong aroma of smokey tobacco as well as a distinct smell of menthol. After I placed a portion in my mouth, I began to taste a cooling sensation of menthol which was complimented by a smokey tobacco flavor which was rounded out by a hint of spice. The cooling effect of the menthol lasted for about ten minutes, and after the tobacco flavor came out and was very strong, with a smokey taste lasting for around thirty minutes before becoming increasingly bitter and salty, forcing me to remove it at the forty five minute mark.
The portions were of average quality, and they were fairly comfortably in my lip. I was able to leave portions in for about forty minutes before I began to experience a bitter drip. The nicotine rush came on within two minutes, and it produced a strong headrush which rivals that of Thunder Raw Ultra Strong. Because of the strong and fast headrush it produces resembles the rush of a cigarette, I suggest that smokers looking to switch to snus give Oden’s Extreme a try.
Overall, I enjoyed Oden’s Extreme Cold quite a lot as a tobacco flavored snus. Oden’s unique tobacco flavor, paired with its high nicotine content make it a solid choice for those who want a tobacco flavored snus with a kick. The menthol also provides a cooling sensation which makes the flavor even more interesting. Oden’s Extreme Cold Portion goes well with minty drinks such as creme de menthe, as well a refreshing treat after having a strong coffee.
