R42 Peppermint (Super Strong) White - Review. 16 July 2018.

About a year ago, I reviewed R42 Peppermint (Xtra Strong White) and R42 Green Mint (Xtra Strong White). I recently saw these products have been replaced with Super Strong versions, so I felt I should go back and do new reviews. I believe these originally had a nicotine content of 18mg/g, which has now been pushed to 26mg/g (2.6%). The flavor description for this product says, "Light and spicy tobacco character with distinctive elements of spearmint and peppermint, as well as some cedar, herbs and green apple." This product comes in an 11.2 gram can with 16 portions for 0.7 gram portions. The nicotine content, as mentioned earlier, is 26mg/g (2.6%) which breaks down to 18.2mg/portion. Formerly, the nicotine content was 18mg/g and 12.6mg/portion, so these new versions are much stronger!

Other than the nicotine strength, it seems not much else has changed. When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a mild, lightly sweet smell of peppermint with a light hint of spearmint. It isn't as sharp as other peppermint products I've reviewed before and it seems more gentle. The portions are light in weight, so they don't plump up too much. The portion material is quite soft, so these feel rather comfortable in the lip. The taste is much like the aroma, a mellow, gentle, lightly sweet flavor of peppermint with a little spearmint in the background. I don't really notice any green apple in the flavor. The nicotine kick is pretty strong; within about 5 to 10 minutes I'm feeling it, and it feels to be just a little above the extra strong level in delivery. The flavor also lasts a good amount of time; usually I can keep these in for up to an hour!

If you're a mint lover and want something strong, this is worth a go.  I like the mix of peppermint and spearmint, and I like how it isn't too sweet or too in your face.  It's definitely worth a try!
