Oden's Double Mint (Extreme White Dry) Slim - Review. 21 April 2016.

It was only a matter of time before GN Tobacco began making snus in the slim portion format. Slim portions are becoming more and more popular, so we are seeing more and more manufacturers making them. GNT recently released three snus products in the Extreme (White Dry) format category: Cold, Wintergreen and Double Mint. The product description says, " Oden's Doublemint Extreme White Dry Portion has a clear peppermint flavor with a slight hint of menthol. It gives a cooling sensation that stays longer then this is a dry portion and the strength that belong to extremist me range. "  Something to note is the can design.  These new slim white dry cans look really nice.  The design is very viking in appearance.

Doing a comparison, you'll notice that the portions are about as long as Oden's regular pouches, but more slim. So these are more "slim" portions that "long/slim" portions.  Also, these portions are the normal color and white.  The only thing I had to compare them with from GNT was the new Oden's Vanilla (Extreme White Dry) snus, and those pouches are pink due to the vanilla oil soaking into the pouch, so that's why they make look a little different.  Even though these new slim white dry products are technically "white dry", the pouch and the tobacco inside doesn't feel too dry.  They're quite soft to the touch and comfortable in the lip!

When I opened the can, I was surprised by the aroma. I notice more menthol in the aroma than peppermint, which is opposite what I noticed in the original portion/white dry (regular size) versions I've tried in the past. The portions are slim and very comfortable in the lip. They have soft tobacco inside the pouch, and the pouch itself feels quite soft in the lip. When you put a portion in your lip you'll feel a nice, mild cooling sensation as well!  The taste is a lot like the aroma.  I was surprised to notice the menthol taste front and center and ahead of the peppermint.  The peppermint flavor is there, as well, but not as noticeable as the menthol.  The flavor is a little on the mild side, but still pleasant.  For some reason, Oden's White Dry products hit me harder in the nicotine department than their original portions.  I don't know why, but I've noticed that every time I've had one.  The nicotine comes on pretty quick, at around the 10-15 minute mark.  The nicotine lasts quite a while, as does the flavor!  I've been able to enjoy these portions for up to 1.5 to 2 hours, which is quite the endurance factor!

If you're a fan of mint or menthol flavored snus, this is one to give a try to.  It has a nice can design, comfortable portions, a decent flavor and a solid nicotine kick!
