Nordic Spirit (Smooth Mint) Nicotine Pouches - Review. 15 October 2019.

I originally reviewed this product back in July of 2018, but it recently got a facelift, so I'm revisiting the Nordic Spirit line! Not only that, but they've also launched a new addition to the Nordic Spirit line - Elderflower!  The Nordic Spirit line is a line of nicotine pouches made by Nordic Snus AB.  It now comes in three flavors: mint, berry citrus, and elderflower.  This is one of the two original flavors, and I must say - the new can looks much better. The flavor description for this one says, "The right amount of crisp menthol, together with sweet peppermint." This product come with a 13 gram can containing 20 slim portions, at 0.65 grams each. There is a nicotine content of 9mg/portion, which means the total nicotine content is probably around 13-14mg/g.

If you're new to nicotine pouches, these are products that are similar to snus, but with one difference: they don't contain tobacco. So for those who want to enjoy nicotine but not tobacco, these products are for you. This is a photo from last time I reviewed this product to show you what's inside the pouch compared to regular snus. When it comes to this product, Nordic Snus AB says Nordic Spirit is has “naturally extracted nicotine and refreshing flavors, completely tobacco-free. The clean white slim portions are less runny yet feel soft due to the natural plant fiber and gum-base composition giving fullness to the pouches.

If you've had this one before, the flavor really hasn't changed; it tastes like it did last time I had it.  When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a light menthol character and a gentle, lightly sweet smell of peppermint. The portions are slightly dry, but are still soft the touch and comfortable in the lip. In the lip, I notice a mild cooling presence and a freshness throughout my mouth. The taste is a gentle, lightly sweet taste of peppermint and a hint of menthol.  The nicotine level on this one feels to be a touch stronger than regular strength. The flavor also lasts around 45-55 minutes.

If you're into nicotine pouches and like the mint flavor, this is a pretty tasty option.  The new can design looks much better as well!
