Developed by Danish snus manufacturer V2 Tobacco, Thunder Ultra Strong Brandy Alexander Portion is as the name implies, a very strong snus with 22mg of nicotine per gram of snus! Originally released as a limited edition snus a while back, V2 has decided to bring back the Brandy Alexander flavor for presumably a longer period of time. I’ve previously enjoyed Brandy Alexander Loose, so I was curious to see how the ultra strong portion variant would taste.
Brandy Alexander is a popular cocktail which consists of cognac and creme de cacao, and I definitely noticed strong aromas of both cognac and creme de cacao after opening my can. Soon after I placed a portion in my mouth, I began to taste cognac mixed with the cacao, complimented by the classic tobacco taste of Thunder snus. The taste was very interesting, and I found that the cognac and creme de cacoa were mixed in a good amount to produce a sweet yet interesting flavor. After about twenty minutes the taste began to transition to a strong tobacco one, which I liked I found myself enjoying Brandy Alexander with strong liquers, and it also works very well as a tasty after dinner treat.
The portions were of average size and quality, and were similar to the rest of the Thunder line. They were also very moist, but not too much so. After having a portion in for around two minutes I soon noticed a very strong nicotine buzz which resembled that of a cigarette. However, due to the moistness of the portions I found myself removing them after about thirty minutes due to drip (normally I remove it earlier than this however due to the strong buzz!).
As a whole, Thunder Ultra Strong Brandy Alexander is a tasty snus with a unique flavor, and it produces a very strong buzz like the rest of the Thunder line does. I recommend Brandy Alexander Ultra Strong to those who are looking to quit smoking (due to the fast and strong buzz), or for people who enjoy very strong snus brands. Be careful, as if you aren’t used to strong snuses this one may make your head spin!!
