I originally reviewed Phantom Blue Portion on 4 September 2009, and a lot has changed this then. Particularly V2 Tobacco opening their new factory in 2012. Since much has changed with their product quality, I wanted to go back and revisit some of their older products that I wasn't a fan of when I started snusing. One product I wasn't a fan of was Phantom Blue Portion. The first thing that is apparent about the change is the can design. The can used to be a flat black can and now it has a wooden theme with the labeling. This is common across the entire Phantom Snus line.
his review. My friend Dr. Snus noticed it and made a video trying to clean a window with Thunder Blue, which coincidentally didn't go too well. One thing that has improved is the portion quality. They're much more consistent and have a much higher amount of tobacco than they used to. The flavor seems to have improved as well. There's a light taste of juniper mixed with a tart flavor of lemon and a little floral quality in the background. There's also a mild tobacco flavor that develops the longer you have the portion in. This still isn't a snus I would buy or use regularly, but for those who want a juniper snus and want to save a few bucks, give it a try. This one seems to be a love/hate snus, so you never know if you'll like it until you try it.
