Manufactured by V2 Tobacco of Denmark, Offroad Mint White Mini is part of the ever popular Offroad brand of snus which is aimed at the budget minded consumer. I’ve tried (and enjoyed!) several members of the Offroad family in the past, so I was curious to see how a mint flavor would taste. Each can of Offroad Mint White Mini comes with 20 portions weighing .3 grams for a total of 6 grams of snus per can.
Not long after I opened my can of Mint White Mini, I was soon greeted with a mild fresh mint aroma with strong background notes of earthy tobacco. Unlike most mint brands the taste of mint was very subdued, and it was soon overpowered by a strong tobacco taste around the ten minute mark. By the fifteen minute mark I could hardly taste the mint, and it was replaced by a salty tobacco taste which I found became increasingly bitter starting around the twenty minute mark. Although I’m normally a fan of tobacco dominant brands, I found the tobacco taste of Mini Mint White to be too bitter and not as satisfying as other brands out there. I also noticed a bitter flavor with Offroad Eucalyptus White Mini, but not so much in other Offroad brands so I’m not particularly sure what it is exactly.
The portion material was the same used in the rest of the Offroad lineup, and although it isn’t the softest material on the market it was still comfortable and very discreet. I found the nicotine strength to be average for a mini portion snus, and I didn’t feel much of a nicotine buzz since I mainly use regular portions. On average, I generally removed portions around forty minutes due to the flavor becoming increasingly bitter (especially with the drip setting in).
Overall, I can’t say that I’m too big a fan of Mint White Mini. Not so much because of how the Mint tastes, but mainly due to the bitter flavor which takes over once the mint has run its course. However, I do recommend at least trying Mint White Mini if you’re looking for a different mint brand in a mini portion format to try as some people may appreciate the strong flavor which sets in after the mint!
