Review Preface: I am not a dip user. I am a long-term Swedish Snus user. Please take this into consideration when reading my review!
Today, we’re going to be talking about Timberwolf Peach (Pouches), a product by Pinkerton Tobacco, which is owned by Swedish Match. I mostly review snus but have had some request for dip reviews, so I figured I would go with Pinkerton products, as I’ve been a Swedish Match fan for many years and I know they ensure quality.
Looking at this can, it reminds me a lot of a snus can! It even has a catch lid, or, as they call it, a “Stow & Throw” compartment. For those who may not be familiar with this, it’s a place to discard of your used pouches. Remember! With dip they’re called “pouches” and with snus they’re called “portions”.
The taste is described as having “a taste of peach“. Each can comes with 15 pouches and each pouch is around 1.5 grams, much bigger than regular Swedish Snus portions! I’m not sure of the nicotine content, but looking around online I was able to find it listed as 14.1 mg/g total nicotine, and 5.2 mg/g free (usable) nicotine. So, the strength is most likely between regular and strong, when looking at it on paper.
This is one I was very curious about. I’ve heard from many people that this is a great tasting dip, so it was one of the first ones out of my recent order that I wanted to try. When I open the can, the aroma of peach is quite present, and pretty natural! It’s not overly sweet, nor does it taste too artificial. There’s also a little smokiness in the aroma, and a light tobacco character in the background. Looking at this photo, you can tell the pouches are quite moist. They are very large, but the pouches themselves feel comfortable in the lip. The taste is a lot like the aroma. I notice the peach flavor is relatively mild, but it does taste somewhat natural and it isn’t too sweet or candy-like. There is a smokiness behind the peach, an earthy tobacco character, and a hint of wood. The nicotine strength on this one, comparing to Swedish Snus, feels to be around the regular strength to strong range. It does provide a solid kick. The flavor, on average, lasts about 30 minutes.
I found Timberwolf Peach (Pouches) to be enjoyable and while not something I would order again, I’d suggest giving them a try if you’re a dipper or want to try something new!
