Kapten Mint (Extra Stark White Portion) - Review. 11 October 2015.

Review Updated: 18 August 2018 

It's been several years since I've reviewed the Kapten line, and I figured it was time to re-visit it! Kapten is AG Snus's flagship line; a majority of their products fall under the Kapten label. AG Snus describes Kapten as "a novel snus, but the development has been based on the knowhow acquired by 5 generations’ experience manufacturing snus. Kapten is a truly traditional snus, but the taste has been given a modern twist making Kapten a snus of this century." The flavor description of this product says, "Kapten White Extra Strong Mint Portion Snus is described as a truly traditional snus with a stronger taste which has been given a modern twist. (By "traditional", AG Snus means bergamot and tobacco; plus a chilly mint.)". This product comes in an 18 gram can with 20 portions for 0.9 gram portions. The nicotine content is 15mg/g (1.5%) which breaks down to 13.5mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a present smell of peppermint, a mild sweetness, and a little menthol hint. Those these portions aren’t a full gram, they still feel very plump and fill out the lip nicely. One thing I love about AG Snus products is how fat the portions are. The taste is a gentle, lightly sweet taste of peppermint. There’s a little hint of menthol in the background, as well. One thing I like about this is that it doesn’t taste like your traditional mint! There’s a very faint touch of citrus in the background, and a mild tobacco character, as well! The nicotine strength feels to be just shy of the extra strong level, and delivers a nice extra kick. The flavor on this one lasts about an hour, as well.

If you like mint products, this is definitely one to try out.  It tastes quite different from other mint products on the market!
