Oden's Cold Extreme (Slim White Portion) - Review. 19 March 2018.

The "Cold" flavor from GN Tobacco is arguably the most popular mint flavor on the market today. I'm not sure if it is in sales, but it's certainly the one I see discussed the most.  Oden's Cold Extreme (White Dry) seems to be the most discussed mint snus I see on social media, as well.  The Cold flavor from GNT is usually a part of their "firsts", as well. In October, 2015, Oden's Cold Extreme: White Portion was the first white portion they ever released.  In April, 2016, Oden's Cold Extreme: Slim White Dry was one of their first slim white dry products released.  And now this product is their first slim white portion.  The flavor description for this snus says, "Powerful but well rounded and flavorful tobacco blend with clear and cooling flavors of real mint oils.” This product comes in a 20 gram can with 23 portions for 0.87 gram portions. The nicotine content is 22mg/g (2.2%), which breaks down to 19.13mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a fresh, mild, lightly sweet spearmint aroma. Being their first slim white portion, I was curious to see what the portion would be like. The portion material is very soft, and feels great in the lip. The tobacco is firm, and seems to be isolated to one side of the pouch, so I suggest fluffing these to move the tobacco around a bit. In the lip I encountered a mild cooling presence, along with a light burn. The flavor of this one seems to be closer to Oden’s Extreme Cold: White Portion; it is a straightforward spearmint flavor, but comes across as relatively mild and gentle. It has a nice amount of sweetness to it, but it’s not overdone, it’s not over the top, and it’s not as sweet as other spearmint products on the market; it’s very well balanced! The nicotine hits pretty quick; I feel it within 5 minutes and it has a solid kick to it! The flavor lasts about an hour, which is normal for most white portion products.

If you like the Oden's Extreme: Cold lineup, this is definitely worth trying.  In my opinion, it's the best format of all the Cold products that GNT makes.  If you like spearmint products, and enjoy the slim white format, this is definitely one to pick up!
