A recently released snus from V2 Tobacco of Denmark, Thunder Extra Strong Lemon is a lemon flavored snus brand with the high nicotine content that the Thunder line is known for. Every can of Thunder ES Lemon comes with 0.9 grams of snus per portion and 16mg of nicotine. I’ve been quite excited to review ES Lemon as I’m a fan of lemons and there’s no other lemon dominant brands currently exist on the market.
After opening my can of ES Lemon, I was soon greeted with a sharp aroma of lemons and a tad of tobacco in the background. There was also hints of orange (or possibly bergamot), but these were much more toned down in comparison to the lemon. Once I placed a portion in my mouth, I soon began to notice a sour lemon taste complimented by hints of orange. The lemon was very natural tasting and wasn’t sweet (I liked this as I’m not a fan of overly sweet snus). After about ten minutes the lemon flavor slowly began to subside, and the flavor transitioned to a salty tobacco taste and it reminded me of the taste of Thunder Original. After about twenty minutes, the tobacco taste started to become increasingly bitter over time until I took my portions out (usually at the fifty minute mark).
The portion material was standard, and I found that the portions felt comfortable in my lip and were fairly discreet. The portions are also quite moist, and began to notice a strong nicotine buzz begin to kick in almost immediately after putting one in my mouth. I generally left portions in for up to fifty minutes and they still had some flavor (mainly tobacco and salt) left in them.
Overall, I found myself loving Thunder ES Lemon. The unique taste of sour lemon mixed with the clasic taste of Thunder tobacco produces a tasty experience and packs quite a punch! I recommend ES Lemon to those who are looking for a lemon and tobacco taste as well as a very strong nicotine kick. I’m really hoping V2 comes out with a lower strength version of this flavor, as I can definitely see myself using it a few times a day to mix things up a little bit. In my experience, ES Lemon pairs well with fruity drinks and is also a great after dinner treat!
