Sirius Ice Cold Chew Bags (White Dry & Slim White Dry) - Reviews. 23 October 2018.

AG Snus has launched two new chew bag products: Sirius Ice Cold Slim White Dry and Sirius Ice Cold White Dry! So far, the only stores I've seen these on is E-Stoke.de and Snuffstore.de. I've been pretty impressed with AG's chew bag products, such as their Ink Chew Bags and U-Sample Chew Bags.  AG has been as aggressive as V2 Tobacco has in terms of dominating the chew bag market; they have a pretty wide range of products available to serve the EU.  If you're new to Nordic Chew/chewing tobacco/chew bags, I won't go too in depth, but basically these are products made basically the same as snus, but legal to be sold in the EU because they aren't called snus.  The only differences are the tobacco is cut instead of ground, and the portion material is a little thicker so these can technically be chewed.  I will note, however, I've never chewed these, and I've always used them like regular snus.  If you want to know more, check out this video I did which covers Nordic Chew vs Swedish Snus.

Sirius Ice Cold (Extra Strong) Slim White Dry Portion

The product description for these chew bags says "Sirius Ice Cold has an intense and distinctive aroma with a taste of tobacco, mint and menthol."  This product comes in a 10 gram can with 16 portions for 0.63 gram portions. The nicotine content is 25mg/g (2.5%), which breaks down to 15.75mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a present, lightly sweet, sharp smell of peppermint with a hint of menthol. The portions are slim white dry, which means they fit great in the lip. The portion material is dryer than your average white portion, but still comfortable in the lip. Once you put a portion in, you'll notice a mild burn, which fades and gives way to a nice cooling presence. I've been impressed with how long the cooling presence lasts! The taste is a present taste of peppermint with a hint of menthol in the background. It's mildly sweet, but not overly done. I notice a very mild tobacco character in the background usually after about 30 minutes or so. The nicotine strength feels to be between a strong and an extra strong; I do notice a nice kick from it, but it's not too over the top. The flavor lasts a good amount of time, as well; I've found on average it lasts over an hour, up to about 1.5 hour on average!

Sirius Ice Cold (Extra Strong) White Dry Portion

The product description for these chew bags says "Sirius Ice Cold has an intense and distinctive aroma with a taste of tobacco, mint and menthol."  This product comes in a 10 gram can with 20 portions for 0.5 gram portions. The nicotine content is 25mg/g (2.5%), which breaks down to 12.5mg/portion.

This one is basically the same as the other one, but a few small differences. When you open the can, the aroma is much the same - a present, lightly sweet taste of peppermint with a hint of menthol. These portions are regular size, and white dry. They're dryer than your average white portion, but still comfortable. You also will encounter a mild burn when you put a portion in, which gives way to a fresh cooling presence that lasts a pretty good amount of time. The flavor is a present taste of spearmint and a little menthol with a touch of sweetness. I notice a little tobacco character, but not until about 30 minutes in. The nicotine strength feels to be between a strong and an extra strong. The flavor, on average, lasts up to about 1.5 hours.

If you like mint products, want something stronger than regular strength, and can't get snus but can get chew bags, these are worth a try.  They have a pretty solid taste!
