Produced by Winnington AB for their Epok brand, Epok Lime Slim was introduced earlier this year as being a tasty lime flavored snus. Portions of Lime Slim each have 0.7 grams of average strength snus with a total of 16.8 grams per can. Like the rest of the Epok line, Lime Slim’s tobacco is rendered pure white thanks to a special environmentally friendly purification process. In the past I’ve tried both Oden’s Extreme Lime Loose as well as Goteborg’s Rape Lime so I was curious to see what this one would taste like.
After opening my can, I was soon greeted with a fairly mild and very natural lime aroma and not much else. I must say its one of my favorite snus aromas ever, reminding me of the smell of fresh limes. Once I tried a portion, I noticed the lime taste almost right away, and it was a tad tart and not very sweet. Unfortunately the lime flavor starts to diminish starting at the fifteen minute mark, and afterwards it becomes increasingly salty with a slight hint of an herbal tobacco flavor. Although I absolutely loved the lime flavor, I did however notice that the aroma (and flavor) tends to diminish quickly once you’ve opened your can. For best results, I recommend refrigerating your can until you open it, and then finish it within a few days in order to enjoy the strongest possible flavor.
The Epok Lime Slim portions are quite soft, and they’re also long and slim which makes having a portion in comfortable and discreet. I found that the portions were fairly moist, and as a result I usually began to feel a nicotine kick set in within three minutes and it lasted for about a half hour before subsiding. I experienced very little drip until about the one hour mark, and this is when I generally remove my portions.
As a whole, Epok Lime Slim is definitely my favorite from the Epok lineup, and I must say thats its refreshing lime taste is one of my favorite tasting fruit snuses of all time! I highly recommend trying Epok Lime Slim if you’re a fan of fruit flavored snuses with a subtle yet natural taste. I find that Lime Slim pairs very well with wheat beers and mojitos, and it certainly makes for a refreshing after meal treat!
