Today we are going to be talking about a new limited edition release from V2 Tobacco: Thunder Heritage! This product line has 5 exciting flavors from V2 Tobacco. This is how V2 describes this line: “In honoring the Thunder mint tradition, V2 brings out five surprising mint infused flavors. With these five great limited mint flavors, V2 Tobacco celebrates their proud mint heritage. All Heritage limited comes in discrete slim white dry portions.”
These come exclusively in the chew bag format, so they will not be available as snus. It’s a nice little bonus for those who can get chew bags, but can’t get snus products. If you aren’t familiar with chew bags, here’s a quick description from Northerner.com: “Nordic chew is a modern chewing tobacco packed in pouches so you easily can place it under the lip like regular snus. Rather than undergo a process like traditional chewing tobacco, Nordic Chew is pasteurized and packed in pouches to eliminating the need for spitting and ships in portions similar to snus.”
This line comes with 5 products (The cans can not be purchased individually at this time, only in a 5 can roll for €21.75. Each 5 can roll contains one of each product.)
* THUNDER Heritage Limited NO. 1 – flavored with a fresh mint & banana aroma. NO. 1 gives a subtle cooling sensation when used.
* THUNDER Heritage Limited NO. 2 – flavored with a fruity and spicy aroma. This creates an unique and new flavor experience.
* THUNDER Heritage Limited NO. 3 – flavored with fresh mentha & lime aroma. NO. 3 gives a subtle cooling sensation when used.
* THUNDER Heritage Limited NO. 4 – flavored with liquorice and peppermint aroma. NO. 4 gives a subtle cooling sensation when used.
* THUNDER Heritage Limited NO. 5 – flavored a well-rounded pomegranate aroma. NO. 5 gives a subtle cooling sensation when used.
Each one of these products is at the extra strong level (16mg/g of nicotine), and a can comes with 24 white dry chew bags!
Thunder Limited No1 – Banana Mint
The aroma of this one is a mild banana smell with a little mint in the background. The chew bags themselves are the white dry type, and come with a long lasting flavor due to that format, usually up to 1.5-2 hours! With this one, you’ll also encounter a fresh cooling sensation in the upper lip. The taste is very unique, and unlike anything I’ve ever had before. The banana flavor is mild, lightly sweet, and accompanied by a fresh taste of mint. It’s really good. The nicotine kick is quite strong, and delivers the extra strong level!
Result:. Very unique flavor, and one I would definitely try again.
Thunder Limited No2 – Spicy Berries
This one is an interesting one. The aroma is kind of like a mild berry smell mixed with pink chewing gum. Now, with this one, I don’t notice as much of that cooling in the lip. The portions, again, are the white dry format and come with a long lasting flavor of up to 1.5-2 hours. The flavor reminds me a lot of pink gum, but like a subdued berry/pink gum flavor. It’s not overly sweet, but has just the right amount of sweetness. This one also packs the extra strong level nicotine punch!
Result: Not the flavor I expected, but I enjoyed it nonetheless!
Thunder Limited No3 – Mentha Lime
When you open the can of this one you’ll notice a menthol smell right off the bat with a very mild lime smell in the background. This one does have a little cooling sensation in the lip, and the portions are the white dry format. That format, again, yields a long lasting flavor experience, usually up to 1.5-2 hours. The flavor is predominantly menthol, but with a light hint of lime in the background. It’s a pretty fresh flavor. The nicotine on this one, as with the others, is at the extra strong level.
Result: A very interesting mix, but it works very well. I liked the fresh balance of menthol and lime.
Thunder Limited No4 – Licorice & Peppermint
When you open a can of this one, there is a mild presence of black licorice, a light sweetness, and a gentle touch of mint. This one comes with a light cooling presence when you put a chew bag under your lip. It is also a white dry, so you’ll get a long lasting flavor you can enjoy up to 1.5-2 hours. The flavor is mostly licorice, which comes through as a mildly sweet black licorice flavor. The mint taste is gentle, and in the background. The nicotine on this one feels to be right at that extra strong level so expect a solid hit!
Result: Licorice and mint is an interesting pairing. It’s not for everyone, but V2 did a good job mixing the two flavors together in this release.
Thunder Limited No5 – Pomegranate
This one has a nice, mild, natural aroma of pomegranate. Pomegranate isn’t something you see very often in snus/chew bags, so I was excited to try it! With this one I didn’t notice much of a cooling presence in the lip. The chew bags are the white dry type, so as with the others you’ll get a long lasting 1.5-2 hour flavor experience. The taste, like the aroma, is a natural, mild, light flavor of pomegranate. I didn’t really notice much mint in the flavor of this one, though. The nicotine has that solid extra strong kick to accompany the nice flavor of pomegranate!
Result: Pomegranate is not a common flavor in snus/chew bags, and I really enjoyed this one and would definitely order again.
If you want to try something different, these are some interesting flavors. The Thunder Heritage line is also unique because it only comes in chew bags! I definitely suggest giving this line a go if you want to try something special, unique, and different!
