Produced by Skruf Snus AB, Southern Storm is part of the relatively new Nord 66 line of snus. After having tried several Nord 66 flavors and enjoying them, I decided to give Southern Storm a try. Billed as “a strong and exciting snus, with a hot touch of chili.” Each can of Southern Storm has 22 grams of regular portion snus.
After opening up my can, I initially noticed a spicy aroma which was quite complex with hints of chili, peppers, and a little bit of hot sauce. The aroma was quite unique and I haven’t had a snus like it before. After placing a portion in my mouth, I soon began to notice a spicy chili flavor which was complimented by a nice tobacco taste. The chili flavor wasn’t overly strong and I found that the tobacco taste worked to compliment it well. I found that this spicy flavor lasty for about twenty minutes before transitioning to a mild tobacco flavor which became increasingly salty as time went on. On average I was able to leave portions in for about fifty minutes before they began to get too salty for my tastes.
The portion material was fairly comfortable, but nothing special. As a regular portion snus, the portions came pre-moistned and had a good moisture content. As a result, I began to feel a good nicotine buzz kick in within only a few minutes and it was quite strong. I was able to leave portions in for about fourty minutes before experiencing quite a bit of drip.
Overall, I enjoyed Nord 66 Southern Storm quite a bit. I’ve never had a chili flavored snus before, and I feel that the flavor was well executed. The nicotine hit was also strong and pleasant, lasting a long time. I recommend Southern Storm to those who are looking to mix things up with their daily rotation, as well as those who enjoy strong snuses. My favorite drink to pair with Southern Storm is some cinnamon flavored whiskey on the rocks!
