Another fine offering from V2 Tobacco, Offroad Wintergreen is a full sized snus which has a wintergreen flavor profile. I’m a big fan of V2’s offerings of low priced yet high quality snus, so I was eagerly anticipating getting to try Offroad Wintergreen. With 24 portions per can, Offroad Wintergreen is classified as a regular portion snus and contains 8mg of nicotine per portion of snus.
When I initially opened my can of Offroad Wintergreen, I was greeted with an aroma which reminded me of blended tobacco combined a hint of wintergreen. Upon putting a portion into my mouth, I was surprised at how little wintergreen flavor was actually present compared to other brands. This flavor was also a little bit salty, and after about twenty-five minutes the salt flavor became a little too overpowering for my tastes. At the thirty-five minute mark, I had to take the snus out because the flavor had become too salty and bitter for my tastes.
The portions were of average quality, and I soon discovered that I was able to keep a portion in for approximately thirty minutes before I felt the need to remove it. After the twenty five minute mark, the snus began to taste very salty, and not long after the slight wintergreen taste gave way to a quite unpleasant flavor which I can’t quite put my finger on. At this point, I also found that Offroad Wintergreen began to drip quite a bit, and I didn’t enjoy this sensation.
Overall, I felt that Offroad Wintergreen is a solid snus with a slight wintergreen flavor. Although I had no problems finishing my can, I don’t think I’ll be ordering any more, as once the wintergreen flavor dissapared I didn’t enjoy the bitter taste which took over. I hope that V2 alters the formula a little in order to incorporate more wintergreen and less salt. Despite these shortcomings, Offroad Wintergreen proves to be a great snus for individuals who are on a budget, as well as those who enjoy a subtle wintergreen flavor rather than a dominant one.
