Produced by the US Smokeless Tobacco Company, Copenhagen Wintergreen Pouches are a variant of the ever popular Copenhagen Wintergreen brand of dipping tobacco available in a pouch form similar to snus. As a fan of both wintergreen flavored dip as well as most Copenhagen flavors, I was excited to see what the Wintergreen Pouches experience would be like! Every can of Copenhagen Wintergreen Pouches comes with 0.82oz (23.25g) of dipping tobacco.
Not long after opening my can of Copenhagen Wintergreen Pouches, I was soon greeted with a strong and fresh wintergreen aroma which I found to smell very pleasant. Soon after taking a pouch and placing it in the middle of my lower lip, I quickly began to notice a tingling sensation accompanied by a pleasant, natural tasting wintergreen flavor. I found the wintergreen to be tasty and not overly sweet (unlike some brands of wintergreen out there), and it was definitely refreshing. Around the twenty-five minute mark I found the wintergreen taste to slowly diminish in strength, and in its place I began to taste hints of smoky tobacco with just a pinch of salt in the background.
The pouches were very moist, but not to the point that they felt soggy. As a result of the moisture, I found that the pouches released both flavour and nicotine quickly, and I generally began to feel a pleasant buzz set in within just a few minutes of putting in a pouch. Unlike portioned snus, I normally find dipping tobacco pouches to be fairly weak in terms of nicotine content, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Copenhagen pouches were quite strong. I experienced less drip than loose dip with the pouches, and I generally found myself removing pouches around the thirty-five minute mark due to a drop off in flavor and nicotine strength.
As a whole, I found that I enjoyed the taste and experience of Copenhagen Wintergreen Pouches quite a bit. Although I’m not normally a big fan of dipping tobacco pouches, I was pleasantly surprised at both the taste and strength of the Wintergreen Pouches. I recommend Copenhagen Wintergreen Pouches to fans of dip who are looking for a discreet, mess free way to enjoy a dip while in situations where you need to be fairly discreet while dipping!
