Phantom Classic White - Review (Discontinued). 20 Spetember 2011.

NOTE:  Phantom and Offroad Original were discontinued in 2020.  They were merged into a new product, Offroad Classic.  That review is here.

Phantom Classic White Portion is a budget snus from V2 Tobacco. I've had some requests for me to revisit the Phantom line, so here we are! It's a pretty cheap snus, I see at it's less than $2.50 per can. As far as Phantom goes, it is truly an interesting snus. I read on that this product contains "herbs and spices in it's tobacco blend, which contributes to a natural feeling and taste. The inspiration comes from an old approach and can be compared to snus that was first made in the 1700s." I don't know about you, but that sounds pretty cool to me. The flavor description for this snus says "Phantom Classic White Portion snus is a smooth, gentle snus with lemon/orange overtones. The tobacco is not overstated". It comes in an 16g can with 20 portions for 0.8g portions. The nicotine content is 8mg/g (0.8%) which breaks down to 6.4mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma the aroma is a really mild tobacco smell with light citrusy hints and a very light herbal quality to it. The tobacco in the portions is concentrated to one side of the pouch, so I do suggest fluffing these! The flavor is very unique, and for many people it's a love/hate snus. It's really grown on me over the past year, honestly. The taste is quite mild, and not too obtrusive. The tobacco flavor is mild, and gentle. There's a little herbal character in the taste, and then a very mild hint of citrus in the background. The nicotine on this one feels to be around the regular strength level, and I find the flavor lasts up to an hour on average.

This product is something you could use if you're looking to save a little money.  It's also a good snus for beginners, as the flavor is quite mild, but it's very reminiscent of the classic Swedish Snus flavor profile!
