Produced by Gotlandssnus AB, Jakobsson’s Wintergreen Mini is (as the name suggests) a wintergreen flavored snus brand. As a fan of other members of the Jakobssons line (Icefruit and Licorice are two great examples), I had high hopes that Wintergreen Mini would also be quite enjoyable. Each can of Wintergreen Mini comes with 7 grams of snus per can and 0.35 grams per portion.
Wintergreen Mini has a dominant wintergreen flavor, and after popping in a portion I soon noticed a strong wintergreen taste and not much else. The taste was quite refreshing and it didn’t taste artificially sweetened at all (which can be a problem with certain brands, especially American snus like Camel Frost), just the natural taste of wintergreen. Over time the wintergreen began to diminish, and it slowly became replaced by a taste of very mild and salty tobacco after about the thirty minute point.
As a mini portion snus, I found that Wintergreen Mini was highly discreet, and portions fit comfortably in my lip. Unlike regular mini portions, Wintergreen Mini’s were longer and narrower and reminded me of a smaller version of the Lab Series from Swedish Match. The portions were also quite moist but not overly so, and I generally noticed a small nicotine buzz begin to set in around the two minute mark and it lasted for about fifteen minutes. I usually took portions out after about forty-five minutes when both the taste and nicotine buzz had become mild.
As a whole, I enjoyed Jakobsson’s Wintergreen Mini a lot despite not usually being a fan of mint dominant brands. The mini portions had a good kick for their size, and portions were long lasting without tasting artificially sweet. Jakobsson’s Wintergreen makes for a refreshing after meal snus, and its definitely a great brand to have in your daily rotation if you enjoy mini portions.
