Produced by V2 Tobacco as part of their highly popular Thunder Snus brand, Thunder X is a recently released addition which packs an incredible nicotine punch. Clocking it at a whopping 45mg/g of nicotine, Thunder X is the strongest snus currently on the market (followed by Siberia Portion). In order to create such an incredibly strong snus, V2 uses a higher ratio of tobacco leaves to stalks than what it is found in most brands of snus (tobacco leaves contain higher amounts of nicotine than does the stalk). Due to the extremely high nicotine content, I recommend Thunder X only to those who are used to stronger products! Thunder X contains 0.9 grams of snus per portion for a total of 19.8g of snus per can.
Soon after opening my can of Thunder X, I began to notice an aroma of sweet mint in addition to the cooling sensation of menthol. Once I put a portion in, I began to immediately taste the menthol and it created a pleasurable chilling effect. Within a few minutes I began to notice a sweet mint taste which complimented the menthol, and the pair of flavors lasted a surprisingly long amount of time. After about the ten minute mark I began to notice hints of tobacco in the background, but the mint taste continued to remain in the foreground.
The portions were the standard material found in other variants of Thunder, and they were quite moist which made me feel a strong buzz begin to set in within a minute of having a portion in. I generally kept portions in for about fifteen minutes as I found them to be very strong compared to regular strength portions that I’m used to. I didn’t notice much drip with the Thunder X portions, but I haven’t left one in past the twenty five minute mark yet!
As a whole, I found Thunder X Portion to be highly enjoyable. It has a nice mint and menthol flavor, and the high nicotine content will satisfy those looking for something that will really pack a punch! Since high nicotine content snuses tend to make me sleepy, I find that Thunder X makes for a refreshing treat after having a big meal, or as a nightcap before bed.
