Thunder Gold (Classic Tobacco Taste) Extra Strong - Review. 2 June 2015.

It's that time of year again and V2 Tobacco has launched the 2015 Thunder Limited Edition line! As with last year, this release comes once again in the big snus can which contains two cans of each of the 5 new flavors: Gold, Prima Lima (Lime), Nilla Shock (Vanilla), Kickass (JalapeƱo and Chili) and Limo G'N'M (Lemongrass and Mint).  As always, the big can is a limited edition item and once it sells out you won't be able to purchase the snus in the big can.  Last year I did all of these reviews in one article, but this year I'm going to do them all separately.  The reason being that V2 will more than likely add a few of these to full time status in a few months, sales depending, and it's easier to keep them separate in different articles.  Now, on to the review!

Recently, V2 Tobacco launched a new line called "Offroad Gold" which came in los, original portion and white dry portion.  V2 describes the Gold line as 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. Gold offers a no compromise classical snus experience."  I've had Offroad Original and found Offroad Gold to be a major step above that product.  It was very close to the traditional Swedish Snus taste.

When you open a can of Thunder Gold Extra Strong, the aroma is a very bold smell of citrus with a hint of pepper in the background.  The tobacco taste is very present and is accompanied by a light and airy taste of citrus and a hint of pepper in the background. Whereas Thunder Original Portion is more tobacco centric, this snus is closer to the traditional Swedish Snus bergamot/citrus taste profile.  I really enjoyed Offroad Gold and was glad to see that taste profile carried through to this one.  The tobacco in Thunder is of a higher quality than Offroad so it definitely contributes to the flavor profile.
