Thunder Cool M (Extra Strong) Original Portion (Discontinued) - Review. 12 August 2015.

NOTE:  This product has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.

It's hard to believe this product has been on the market for 7 years now.  I remember when it first launched, it launched alongside Thunder Cool Orange, and was a bit of a competition between the Vogel Brothers, founders of V2 Tobacco, to see which would be more popular.  Well, Cool Mint, as it was called back then, proved to be more popular and Cool Orange was eventually discontinued.  I've always been a fan of this one, and consider it to be one of the best mint tasting products on the market.  In fact, the Slim White Dry version is something I keep in my freezer at all times.

The flavor description for this snus says, "Thunder Cool Mint Extra Strong Portion snus is a high nicotine, long lasting snus with a smooth taste of peppermint."  It comes in a 19.8 gram can with 22 portions for 0.9g portions.  The nicotine content is 16mg/g (1.6%), which breaks down to 14.4mg/portion.

With most peppermint products on the market, they have a very sharp flavor. What V2 did with this one was delivery a smooth taste of peppermint that is truly unique. The aroma is a straightforward smell of peppermint that come through in a very smooth, sweet way. In the lip you'll encounter a fresh cooling presence, which you notice with most mint products. The taste of this stuff is absolutely delicious. The peppermint flavor is quite present, sweet, but very smooth and mellow. I love the way this snus tastes. Being a Thunder product, the nicotine content is at the extra strong level and you'll get a solid kick with this one! The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 minutes.

In terms of mint products, the Cool M flavor is one of the best around, in my opinion.  This one, or the slim white dry version, are must try products if you like the taste of mint!
