Manufactured by British American Tobacco and released at the tail end of 2016, Granit Slim White Extra Strong is a tobacco dominant snus in a comfortable slim portion format. Each can of Granit Slim White Extra Strong comes with 17.6 grams of extra strong snus with a nicotine content of about 16mg/g. As a fan of slim portions, I was excited to give Slim White Extra Strong a try, especially since I’ve previously reviewed and enjoyed a range of Granit products including Granit Sensations Mint and Granit Intensive Extra Strong.
Soon after opening my can of Slim White ES, I noticed a tobacco dominant aroma with undertones of bergamot and the melange was pleasantly balanced. A few minutes after putting in a portion, the flavor began to develop and I noticed a taste of peppery tobacco which I found quite enjoyable. I also noticed hints of bergamot in the background, and this usually lasted for about fifteen minutes before gradually tapering off. Around the twenty minute mark the tobacco taste became increasingly strong and started to become salty and slightly bitter with a rich tobacco taste, and it was interesting seeing the tobacco flavor continue developing until about the forty minute mark. On average I usually removed my portions after an hour when I found the flavor became too bitter for my taste.
The portions were long and narrow, and I found that they fit comfortably without any issues. As a white portion, Slim White ES is a little slower than regular portions when it comes to nicotine release, but around four minutes in I began to feel a strong and satisfying nicotine buzz set in which lasted for around half an hour before subsiding. I experienced little drip with Slim White ES, and I usually removed portions after an hour when they began to lose flavor.
As a whole, I have to say that I enjoyed Granit Slim White Extra Strong a lot. The rich tobacco flavor, rounded out by the great taste of bergamot creates a satisfying experience, especially as a daily rotation snus. I recommend Slim White to those who are looking for a great tasting tobacco dominant snus which they can enjoy frequently, while at the same time wanting something with a satisfying nicotine kick.
