Jakobsson's Mint Strong - Review. 26 May 2015.

Review Updated: 24 March 2018

It's been quite a while since I've had this one, but the Jakobsson's line went through a redesign last year and I figured I should revisit it.  Jakobsson's Mint is an Americanized mint snus, meaning, it's a mint snus but designed with a flavor for the American consumer.  In fact, this is one of very few non General products you can find in a few tobacco stores here and there in the US. The flavor description for this product says, "Rich flavour of peppermint with herb notes and sweetness.” It comes in a 20 gram can with 20 portions for 1 gram each. The nicotine content is 14mg/g (1.4%) which breaks down to 14mg/portion!

If you like sweet tasting mint products, this one will be right up your alley. When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a sweet, present smell of peppermint with a hint of menthol. The portions are very soft, and quickly release flavor when you put one in the lip. As is common of most mint products, there’s also a nice cooling sensation in the lip, as well. The taste, as I mentioned before, is sweeter than most mint products. It’s a nice taste of peppermint mixed with tones of menthol. The thing that separates this from other mint products, in my opinion, is the herbal character in the background; it’s very unique! The nicotine strength feels to be firmly at the strong level. The flavor lasts about 45 minutes, which is about how far I can push most original portions.

If you like mint products and want something a little sweeter, this is worth a try.  It's a very interesting and unique flavor!
