Produced by AG Snus, U Sample No. 5 Original White Portion is a specially developed form of chewing tobacco which comes in individual pouches and doesn’t require the need to spit. Every can of U Sample No. 5 comes with 20 portions per can, each with 10mg of nicotine for a total of 16.8 grams of chewing tobacco per can.
Soon after opening my can of No. 5 Original, I was soon greeted with a tobacco dominant aroma, complimented by hints of citrus. Once I put a bag in and waited a few minutes for the flavor to develop, I began to taste a fresh tobacco taste which was rounded out by hints of bergamot. The bergamot flavor slowly began to diminish around the fifteen minute mark, and the fresh tobacco taste began to gradually become increasingly salty as time passed. I didn’t taste any other flavors besides the tobacco and bergamot, but I did find the combination to be enjoyable for use as a daily chew since no one flavor was too overpowering.
The portion material was comfortable, and I had no issues in keeping it in my upper lip. As a white portion chew, the portions were moderately dry, and it took around five minutes before I began to feel a nicotine buzz set in. Listed as an Xtra strong chew, I found the buzz was fairly strong but not overpowering (especially due to the white portions making the nicotine release more gradually), and it generally lasted for around half an hour before slowly beginning to subside. On average, I tended to leave portions in for nearly an hour before removing them due to excessive drip.
As a whole, I have to say that I really, enjoyed U Sample No. 5, as I found the tobacco dominant flavor to be well balanced by the citrus taste, and the flavor made for an excellent go to chew in my daily rotation for the past week. I recommend U Sample No. 5 to those who are looking for a primarily tobacco flavored chew, but with hints of citrus to spice things up a bit!
