Catch Eucalyptus (White Large) - Review. 12 November 2015.

Review Updated: 30 May 2020

Some of you may now know this, but back in 2009 when I first started snus, this is one of the first products I tried and actually liked.  It was the third snus I reviewed back in May of 2009, as well.  It helped me make my transition from American "snus" to Swedish Snus.  Now, I don't use it as much, but I always have some in the freezer for whenever I catch a cold!  The flavor description for this one says "A dominate taste of eucalyptus and mint with an element of citrus".  Each can weighs 21.6g and has 24 portions, for 0.9g portions.  The nicotine content is 8mg/g (0.8%), or 7.2mg/portion.

What I like about this one is that it isn't overly mentholated, and doesn't smell too much like cough drops.  It reminds me of them, but it's not in your face like opening a bag of them.  The menthol/eucalyptus character is the first thing I smell, and it seems to have a faint touch of peppermint in the background.  The portions are soft, and feel quite comfortable under the lip.  They also come with a nice cooling sensation when you put one under the lip.  The flavor is gentle, and fresh.  The menthol flavor is light, and not too in your face.  There's a light mint character to it in the background, which works pretty well with the fresh taste of the menthol.  The nicotine level feels to be about regular strength, and the flavor lasts about an hour on average!

This is a super tasty snus.  Not one I use all the time, but I aways keep some around for when I have a cold!

  1. thanks for this post. i've only been using snus for 5 or 6 months (started with camel and then switched to swedish stuff). for the last 4 months or so i've been using general wintergreen white portion. i love the stuff but, i wanted to mix it up a little bit. however, i only buy snus by the roll and didn't want to try something new, hate it, and then have 10 cans of it. catch eucalyptus is what i was looking at and your review has helped me make up my mind. so, again, thank you for this post.

  2. Awesome, I'm glad you're enjoying it. Thunder Frosted has a great mint flavor, as well, it's a good one to look into.
