Oden's Extreme (No3) Original Portion - Review. 29 December 2013.

Review Updated:  11 February 2021

It's been quite a few years since I've reviewed this one, but I've had some requests for it, so I figured it was time to revisit it!  Of the Odens line, this is one fo the ones I don't really hear discussed very often.  It's one of their better tasting products, though!  The flavor description for this snus says, "A super strong portion with a traditional taste of tobacco and a hint of bergamot".  Each can weighs 20 grams and has 20 portions, for plump 1 gram portions.  The nicotine content is 22mg/g (2.2%), or 22mg/portion.  In terms of nicotine strength, this is one that certainly has a higher kick to it!

When you open the can, a complex aroma greets you!  I pick up spicy tobacco, an earthy presence, and hints of smoke.  There's a light touch of bergamot, and a hint of leather.  The portions are plump, moist, and fill out the lip quite well!  They also have a pretty quick release of flavor.  The taste is mostly tobacco.  The tobacco taste is dark, rich, and slightly smoky.  There's a hint of bergamot, along with light hints of leather.  The nicotine strength feels to be firmly at the extra strong level and has a solid kick to it!  The Extreme line of Oden's products usually has a rather strong kick to it, so this isn't for the faint of heart, or those with lower nicotine tolerance.  The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 minutes.

Rating and Final Thoughts

I rated this one at 3.08 out of 5.  Don't get me wrong, it's a great tasting snus.  It's just way, way too strong for me personally.  Now, if you like really strong snus, you should check this one out.  It has a great flavor, and a gorgeous can design.  It's very complex, but sometimes the beauty is in the complexity!
