Thunder Original (Ultra Strong) White Dry - Review (Discontinued). 17 February 2016.
V2 Tobacco has been growing the Ultra Strong White Dry category recently. To date, they've released Thunder Frosted Ultra Strong White Dry, Thunder Wintergreen Ultra Strong White Dry and Thunder Cool Mint Ultra Strong White Dry. I know the nicotine content of these products is listed as 42mg/g, and that can be a little intimidating, so let me break down what that actually looks like.
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
So, as you can see, it's still pretty strong. At 27.3mg/portion that's much stronger than Thunder Extra Strong!
Thunder Original Extra Strong (Original Portion). I don't notice any smoke in the aroma of this one, like I do with Thunder Original Portion. The portions are white dry, so of course they're going to be dryer than your average white portion. However, once they moisten up they become more comfortable in the lip. The taste is a mild, mellow tobacco flavor with just a little bit of pepper in the background. If you've had Thunder Original (Ultra Strong) White Portion, I would say the taste is closer to that one. These portions, being white dry, last quite a long time as well. I don't do a lot of strong portions, so I can't keep these in too long because of the high nicotine level, but last night I kept one in for a few hours just to test the longevity of the portion. But my head was certainly spinning! The nicotine strength comes on slowly, but it lasts quite a while.
If you're a fan of tobacco centric snus and want something super strong, I would definitely suggest trying this one out!
