Released at the start of Summer 2017 by AG Snus, Sisu Extreme White Dry is an extra strong snus which is notable as being AG’s first extra strong snus, as well as their foray into the dry market segment. Every can of Sisu Extreme comes with a total of 17 0.65 gram portions, each with about 12.9mg of nicotine per portion.
Soon after opening my can of Sisu Extreme, I began to notice a spearmint aroma which was complimented by the characteristic cooling sensation of menthol. As a dry snus, I immediately began to notice a cooling menthol sensation as soon as I put my portion in, but the spearmint flavor took longer to develop. After roughly five minutes, I began to taste a natural spearmint flavor which I found to be quite enjoyable. Thanks to the dryness of the portions, I found the flavor lasted a long time, and I was generally able to keep them in for over an hour before removing them due to a decline in flavor. I’m not normally a huge fan of mint flavored snuses, but I do love menthol and found that it helped to balance out the spearmint flavor while keeping things enjoyable.
My favorite thing about Sisu Extreme is how soft the portion material is. The portions are silky smooth to the touch, and are very comfortable to keep in your lip for extended periods of time. The portions are very dry, and as a result I found the nicotine kick to come on gradually and last for a long time, and a strong yet pleasant buzz began to set in around the four minute mark. I don’t use extreme portions very often, but when I do I definitely prefer dry portions as I like the gradual onset of the nicotine buzz as opposed to an original portion which hits you very fast.
As a whole, I enjoyed Sisu Extreme, and I can definitely see it being fit for those who enjoy mint flavored brands but are looking for something with a little extra oomph in the nicotine department. Moreover, the dryness of the portions makes them very long lasting, and the silky smooth portion material made keeping the portions in for extended periods a highly comfortable experience! I recommend Sisu Extreme White Dry to mint snus fans who are looking for something long lasting yet strong in the nicotine department.
