I haven’t done a mini portion review in a while, so I figured it was time to do one! Today we’re talking about Göteborgs Rapé White Mini, a product from Swedish Match! I personally don’t use mini portions, but there’s a lot of people out there who do, mainly for lower nicotine levels and for discretion. Snus is pretty discrete as it is, but mini portions are certainly much more discrete than regular size ones.
The description for this one says, “Göteborgs Rapé Mini has a mellow tobacco taste with distinct notes of lavender and juniper, along with hints of oak and citrus. This snus has a small pouch that is dry on the surface with a moist content for a lasting flavor release.” Each can has 20 portions, and being mini portions they’re only 0.5g each. The nicotine level is 8mg/g, but since the portions are smaller you get about 4mg in each portion.
I know in the picture above it looks like a regular GR can, but I wanted to show a comparison of this can and a regular snus can. It’s a much smaller can, and doesn’t stick out of the pocket at all. So if you’re concerned with the notorious “can ring” in your jeans, this one avoids that.
If you’ve had regular GR White Portion, this product is basically the same thing, but in much smaller portions and a smaller can. The aroma is predominantly juniper, with a hint of citrus and light floral/herbal notes. The portions are smaller in size, and don’t take up much real estate in the lip. They’re small, but still soft and comfortable. The taste is a present flavor of juniper with a light hint of citrus, a subtle tobacco character, and then light herbal notes and a gentle floral taste. The nicotine level doesn’t feel quite as strong as a regular strength snus, but that’s because it’s a mini portion. The flavor lasts around 50-55 minutes on average!
If you like GR, but want a smaller version, check out Göteborgs Rapé White Mini. Same great product, much smaller portions. While I don’t use mini portions myself, I recognize that there aren’t a lot of them on the market, so this is a nice change up for those who do enjoy this size of portions!
