Thunder Wintergreen (Ultra Strong White Dry) - Review (Discontinued). 12 January 2016.

NOTE:  This product has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.

It's 2016, and V2 is adding two new products to their lineup! Both are Ultra Strong and both are White Dry. This review will be over the Wintergreen flavor.  In November of 2015, V2 launched their first Ultra Strong White Dry product, Thunder Frosted Ultra Strong White Dry.  In that review, I did a little breakdown on the specifics of that product, so I'll share the details about these new Ultra Strong White Dry products.

Thunder Ultra Strong White Dry
Nicotine - 42mg/g
18 portions per can
11.7 gram can weight
Each Portion - 0.65 gram
Nicotine Per Portion - 27.3 mg/portion

In case you're just tuning in, here's a comparison I did to examine the "white dry" product and compare it to other products in the Thunder line up.  On the far left, you see tobacco from an Offroad Portion, in the center you see tobacco from a Thunder White Dry product and on the far right you see tobacco from a Thunder Ultra Strong White Dry product.  These products are basically a "dry" version of Thunder Snus, produced in the same way but without any moisture added. The nicotine absorbs into the blood slower than usual until the portion is completely moist, then it will work much like a regular original portion does. Also, when people are taxed by weight in their snus orders, taking some of the moisture out of the snus is a way to help people save money. You can see in the picture to the left the difference in products.  In the photo, the Offroad snus on the far left is more "clumpy" and moist, whereas the Frosted White Dry products in the center and on the far right are more dry and finely ground and don't stick together as much. If you add moisture to these products yourself, they would look a lot like the product to the far left.

Just to preface this review, I'm not a fan of Wintergreen. But if you've been reading this blog long, you already know that. The aroma of this product is a mild, gentle smell of wintergreen. The pouches are white dry, so obviously they're drying than your average white portion, but the portion material is surprisingly quite soft! The taste is a much milder wintergreen flavor than the newly released Thunder Wintergreen Slim White Dry.  Don't get me wrong, it's still a straight up wintergreen flavor, but it's a lot milder than I've experienced in the past.  I also notice just a little tobacco in the flavor, as well.  The longer you have it in, the more it matures, but it doesn't get as bold as you would expect.  Being an Ultra Strong product, it packs quite a nicotine kick, as well.  If you're not a user of Ultra Strong products, be ready - this one has a heck of a kick!  So, if you're a wintergreen fan and looking for something super strong, give this snus a try!
