In December of 2016, it was announced that this product would be reformulated and relaunched in early 2017.
I've been looking forward to trying this for a while. When I first heard about this a few months back, I could tell that V2 was excited about this release.
The product description says, "Offroad Gold is a classic style Swedish Snus. It has a traditional full tobacco character beautifully balanced with hints of citrus. A taste that lies deeply grounded in the soul of Sweden and reminds us how true snus should be and taste. Offroad Gold offers a no compromise classical snus experience."
Offroad Gold has a very classy can. I usually don't talk about cans much in reviews, but this can is pretty classy looking and was deserving of a mention. It reminds me a lot of the old General cans.
Offroad Original. This tastes a lot more close to more traditional Swedish Snus products. There is a present flavor of tobacco, as well as a light and airy taste of bergamot. There is also a little hint of pepper in the background. As far as comparisons go - I wouldn't say this is a General clone by any means. It's really hard to compare to anything, but I would say the closest thing I could think of would be a cross between GN Tobacco's Oden's Original Portion and Olde Ving Original. Both of those are snus products that I highly enjoyed, so I'm okay with that.
Offroad Gold is a definite win for V2 Tobacco. I don't know of any shops selling it to the US yet, but I know Snus Bolaget has it listed at 24kr, which is about 2.72$ USD. For a value snus, this delivers a great flavor.
