Yet another offering in the GN Tobacco line of snus, Lenny’s Cut Original Portion is a newly released snus with a tobacco taste and medium nicotine strength. Every can of Lenny’s Cut comes with 15 grams of regular strength snus (with 9mg of nicotine per portion). Geared towards the budget market, Lenny’s Cut is billed as being one of the cheapest snuses per gram while still maintaining a high level of quality. Like the rest of the Oden’s lineup, Lenny’s Cut is manufactured using a fire cured method which produces a unique tobacco taste.
Upon opening my can of Lenny’s Cut, I soon noticed an aroma of natural tobacco complimented by slight floral undertones. After placing a portion in my lip, I noticed a taste of mild tobacco with a hint of floral fragrances and the combination was quite tasty and balanced. After about ten minutes the floral undertones subsided and I was left with a nice taste of mild smokety tobacco which reminded me a little of a toned down version of Oden’s Extreme. The mild tobacco taste lasted for about forty minutes, and after that it began to become increasingly salty and bitter tasting.
The portions are made from the same material as other GN brands and fit fairly comfortable in the lip. They are also quite moist, and as a result I experienced a pleasant nicotine buzz within five minutes. I was able to leave portions in for around forty-five minutes before I needed to remove them due to excessive drip.
Overall, Lenny’s Cut Original Portion is a tasty and affordable tobacco flavored snus brand. My only real complaint is that cans contain less tobacco than most regular snus brands, but the great price makes up for it. If you’re looking for a great tasting tobacco snus at an affordable price I recommend giving Lenny’s Cut a spin! Lenny’s cut is great as a morning snus with strong coffee, but also pairs quite well with black tea.
