Manufactured by JTI Sweden, Nordic Storm Fresh White is a white portion snus flavored with a mix of spicy tobacco and cooling menthol. As a fan of menthol snus brands (such as Blue Ocean), I was curious to see how the two contrasting flavors would interact. Every can of Nordic Storm Fresh White comes with 24 0.9g portions with a nicotine content of 14.4mg per portion and a total of 21.6g of snus per can.
Soon after opening my can of Nordic Storm Fresh White, I began to notice a slight cooling sensation on my nostrils from the menthol, as well as slight hints of spicy tobacco in the background. As a white portion, it took a few minutes for the flavor to develop, and about three minutes after putting in a portion I began to notice the cooling effect of menthol, as well as a bit of a mint taste. The menthol flavor remained present for about fifteen minutes, after which it slowly began to diminish and a spicy, slightly salty tobacco flavor took its place. I found the contrast between the menthol and spicy tobacco to be quite enjoyable, and the flavor lasted a long time. On average, I usually left portions in for around an hour and fifteen minutes before the flavor became too weak for my liking.
The portion material was regular, and the portions fit comfortably in my upper lip. I enjoyed the 0.9 gram portion size, as I find that fuller portions tend to produce a richer flavor than smaller sizes. With the relatively low moisture content, I experienced little drip with Fresh White, and the nicotine buzz took around five minutes to reach full strength. I found that the portions have a bit more of a nicotine kick than regular portions do, but slightly less than strong portions which makes them nice to use when you’re looking for a stronger than normal nicotine buzz without it being too strong.
Overall, I found Nordic Storm Fresh White to be enjoyable, and I would recommend it to those who enjoy larger portion sizes as well as menthol dominant snus brands. I usually tended to enjoy Fresh White after meals as a digestif thanks to its refreshing menthol taste and slightly stronger than normal nicotine kick.
