Oden's Extreme Portion - Review. 16 April 2011.

In 2011, a new tobacco companied called GN Tobacco set out to do something that no one else had done before.  To make the world's strongest snus.  Weighing in at 22mg/g of nicotine, this was the first snus released that could be classified as "ultra strong". But it's not just the nicotine that made this snus so unique.  It's the aroma, the flavor - everything! The flavor description says, "Oden's Extreme has a spicy and robust tobacco flavor and comes in moistened original portions. With its nicotine content of 22mg/g, Oden’s Extreme is one of the world’s strongest snus! Expect the unexpected!" This snus comes in at a nicotine content of 22mg/g of nicotine. The can is 18 grams with 18 portions which means you'll get the full 22mg/portion nicotine strength!

When I open a can of Oden's Extreme I'm simply blown away by the aroma. A deep, spicy, pure tobacco aroma much like good pipe tobacco. The portions are dark original portions, slightly moist but not oozing or anything.  The portions are packed full, but I still fluff them a little bit before putting it in my lip. The mouthfeel is great, these portions are very comfortable and the nicotine hit is almost immediate. This snus isn't for the weak - it is an ultra strong so it's going to be much stronger than your regular strength snus.  The taste is a slightly salty taste with a pure tobacco flavor. Much like the taste of good pipe tobacco - this snus is a straight up tobacco flavored snus. No fancy hints or notes of anything other than a zesty, spicy, bold tobacco taste.  The pepper taste is quite bold and really contributes to the strong taste of tobacco that this snus has.  The tastes lasts quite a while, up to the 45 minute mark!  The nicotine kick is quite strong, weighing in at 22mg/g, and you'll feel an incredible kick from this one!  I really like the fact that GN did this because a lot of snusers have been asking for a snus like this with a tobacco flavor without the presence of citrus. And boy, did GN deliver. This snus is all around great.

  1. a million thanks to GN for bringing this snus on the market, the EU ban really sucks; since i can't get my general onyx and ekstra sterk anymore i switched to odens extreme and jakobssons classic strong, with the first being my favorite. and thanks mister chad, been lurking quite some time and i really enjoy your reviews.

    greetings from the netherlands.
