Produced by V2 Tobacco of Silkeborg, Denmark, Thunder Cool Mint is an extra strong snus with a refreshing minty taste. Although I’m not a big fan of mint flavored snuses, I do enjoy the Thunder lineup and was curious to see how it would taste. Every can of Thunder Cool Mint comes with 19.8 grams of extra strength snus.
Once I got my can of Cool Mint open, I soon noticed a strong aroma of fresh mint. The mint also smelled a tad herbal, and I couldn’t detect any tobacco odors. As soon as I popped in a portion, I soon began to taste a strong mint flavor which also had a bit of a menthol cooling effect. This cool minty taste lasted for about twenty five minutes before slowly getting weaker, but I was still able to detect a hint of mint even at the forty minute mark. I removed my portions after about an hour, and by then the flavor had become increasingly bitter. There’s no real tobacco flavor to speak of, but the herbal mint was very natural as well as strong tasting (unlike G20 Mint), instead it was more in line with Nick & Johnny Crushed Ice.
The portions were made of regular material, and nothing about them really stood out. However, they did fit comfortably in my mouth and had a good moisture level which ensured that the nicotine would get rapidly released. The nicotine kick came on very strong and fast, and I experienced a good head rush almost immediately after putting in a portion. I was able to keep portions in for around forty minutes before they began to drip and taste bitter.
Overall, Thunder Cool Mint is a solid tasting mint snus that packs a punch. The minty flavor tasted quite natural and not artificial which I liked, and it lasted for a fairly long time before starting to subside. I recommend Thunder Cool Mint to fans of mint flavored snuses, as well as those who like a strong nicotine rush. If you’re a smoker looking to make the switch to snus, I highly recommend giving Cool Mint a go!
