One of the most popular entries in Swedish Match’s Catch line of snus, Catch White Eucalyptus is a minty eucalyptus flavored snus with 0.9 grams of snus per portion (with 8mg of nicotine per gram of snus). I’ve previously had only one other Eucalyptus flavored snus (Offroad Eucalyptus), and I enjoyed it quite a bit so I was looking forward to seeing how Catch Eucalyptus would compare.
After opening my can of Catch Eucalyptus, I was greeted with a combination of mint and Eucalyptus, which smelled pleasant. After placing a portion into my mouth, I was greeted with a cooling sensation which felt a little bit like menthol but not as strong. Although the taste was predominantly that of eucalyptus, I also noticed a touch of mild tobacco which helped to balance out the flavor. As time passed the eucalyptus and mint tastes began to subside and were replaced by the subtle flavor of the tobacco. I began to lose flavor around the half hour mark, and I could hardly taste anything but mild tobacco after fourty five minutes.
The portions were comfortable and contained loosely packed snus. Since the snus was quite dry, it took about five minutes before a noticeable buzz came on, and it lasted for around twenty minutes before starting to subside. The portions began to drip a little at the fourty five minute mark, and I usually removed them after about fifty minutes of us.
Overall, I enjoyed the taste of Catch Eucalyptus quite a bit for a minty snus. Although I don’t plan to add it to my daily rotation, I do find myself using quite a lot of Catch Eucalyptus when I have a cold or sore throat. I find the eucalyptus flavor tends to ease the symptoms of a sore throat, and the mild tobacco taste minimizes throat irritation. I recommend Catch Eucalyptus to mint fans, as well as those who are suffering with a cold or sore throat (pair it with some warm tea)!
