V2 Tobacco recently released Offroad Selection (Gold), a reformulated version of 2015's Offroad Gold Original Portion. Along with that product, they released another product in the Offroad Selection line - Blue. SnusBolaget describes the flavor by saying "The flavor consists mostly of juniper, which gives the snus a balanced acidity and spiciness." I was a little nervous going into this one when I saw the name "Blue" and the flavor description of juniper. I haven't had the best relationship in the past with products by V2 that contain either of those two attributes. I wasn't a fan of Phantom Blue Original Portion or Thunder Blue. But I did, however, enjoy Phantom Blue White and Phantom Blue Los. So I found myself curious to try this one, but also nervous due to my track record with V2 Tobacco's Blue products.
Windex. It's hard to describe but it's like a mix of juniper, pepper, and light floral notes. One thing that surprised me about this one was that I get a mild cooling feeling in the lip when I put this one in. I'm not sure why, but I noticed that with each portion I used. The taste, however, isn't too bad. The taste is predominantly juniper with a present taste of pepper in the background. I also notice a mild tobacco character and a light floral presence, as well. I would say the difference between this and Phantom Blue is that I notice more pepper in the taste of this one, and I don't pick up any lemon in the flavor like I did with Phantom Blue. The nicotine content, though it is lower than regular strength (8mg/g) still felt about regular strength. I found the taste to last a decent amount of time, usually up to about 45 minutes.
As far as this snus goes, it's an interesting taste. I didn't dislike it, but it's not something I would probably order again. It's a decent tasting snus, but it's not for me. However, if you like the juniper flavor of snus and want to save a few bucks, you can throw a can in on your next order and give it a try. Offroad isn't an expensive brand, so if you don't like it you won't be out too much money.
