Yet another offering in V2 Tobacco’s popular Thunder line of Snus, Thunder Wintergreen White is an extra strong snus with a wintergreen twist. Each can of Thunder Wintergreen comes with 17.6 grams of extra strength snus containing 16mg of nicotine per portion.
Once I got my can of Thunder Wintergreen White open, I noticed a strong wintergreen aroma which reminded me a lot of pink wintergreen lozenges (which I happen to love!). After I put in a portion, I soon began to taste a strong and refreshing wintergreen flavor which I prefer over regular mint. I was unable to detect any hints of a tobacco taste, or anything else for that matter. The wintergreen flavor lasted for around thirty minutes before it began to subside, and after forty minutes the taste was replaced by just a hint of tobacco. I generally started to experience drip around the fifty minute mark, which is when I usually took the portions out.
The portions use the same material as the rest of the Thunder lineup (with the exception of Thunder Frosted Longer+), and they were fairly comfortable. Since it is a fairly dry white portion snus, the nicotine kick of Wintergreen White is a little slower to come on than other Thunder varieties, taking about 5 minutes before you experience the full buzz (compared to almost instantly with a original portion Thunder). Personally, I enjoy the slower onset because I feel like the buzz is not as intense as original portions, yet its peak strength is about the same. I was able to leave portions in for about fifty minutes before I began to experience drip.
Overall, I found myself enjoying the taste of Thunder Wintergreen White a lot. Its flavor is great (not overly sweet) and has a very natural taste. I’m really hoping that V2 decides to offer Wintergreen in the same slim portion format that they do with Thunder Frosted Long+. If they do, Wintergreen White will definitely be added to my daily rotation to mix things up every now and then! Thunder Wintergreen makes for a great (and zero calorie!) post-meal treat!
