Manufactured by AG Snus of Denmark, Kapten Mint White is yet another take on creating a mint flavored snus. However, despite the large amount of mint snuses currently on the market, AG claims that the “development [of Mint White] has been based on the know-how acquired by 5 generations’ experience manufacturing snus”. Although I’m not a huge fan of mint flavored snuses, there are some that I do enjoy, and I was quite excited to try Mint Vit as I’ve enjoyed both Kapten Vit and Kapten Lakrits in the past. Each can of Kapten Mint White comes with 24 portions with 10mg of nicotine each, for a total of 16.8 grams of snus per can.
Once I opened my can of Kapten Mint White, I was soon greeted by an aroma of peppermint which was complimented by hints of citrus and herbal tobacco. Soon after using a portion, I began to notice a smooth peppermint flavor with a splash of bergamot thrown in. These flavors began to subside around the twenty minute mark, and not long after I began to taste a mild tobacco flavor which reminded me of Kapten Vit. Around the thirty minute mark I found the tobacco taste to slowly become saltier, and I generally took portions out at the fifty minute mark. One thing that I liked was that I didn’t find that the mint tasted overly powerful or sweet, and it was nicely balanced with the rest of the flavors.
The portion material is average, and I didn’t have any issues keeping portions in my lip. They’re also fairly dry, and as a result it took about five minutes before my nicotine buzz began to set in. At 10mg of nicotine per portion, I found the kick to be slightly stronger than regular snus and it lasted for about twenty minutes before starting to subside. I didn’t experience too much drip with Mint White, and I usually left portions in for around an hour before removing them. There’s also a full 24 portions per can which I like (some brands have less) since it takes me longer to run out!
Overall, Kapten Mint White is an interesting mint flavored snus which has the benefit of being a little stronger than regular brands and comes with a full 24 portions per can. I recommend giving Mint White a try if you enjoy mint tasting snus brands and are looking for something to add to your daily rotation and won’t get tired of!
