Pure Nordic Watermelon (Strong Portion) - Review. 14 June 2016.

Over the years, I've had people ask me to review Pure Nordic. I've never been able to find any so I haven't reviewed it until now. Recently, someone sent us a few Pure Nordic products to review. There isn't much info out there about them. Their website says, "PURE NORDIC - the highly esteemed producer of snus has its headquarters in Aalborg. Alborg has been the leading tobacco city in Denmark for many generations. We are passionate about snus."  In the past, I was told Pure Nordic products were made by V2 and sold by the Pure Nordic company under their own names.  This isn't unheard of, V2 does this as well with the Royal Snus line. The product description on SnusLageret.no says, "Pure Nordic Portion Watermelon Extra Strong has a high nicotine content a good and powerful watermelon. What makes this special is that it contains much less water. This results in a much lower tobacco tax, giving a lower price to customer. Want a moister snuff add water and let the box stand in the refrigerator overnight."

From using this product, I've found that it is virtually identical to Thunder Melon. Which is a good thing, as I really enjoyed that one. The aroma is a very present smell of watermelon with a little bit of honeydew in the background. It's a very fresh, fruity, natural smell without a lot of sweetness to it. The portions are pretty moist and the flavor releases pretty quickly. I would say the nicotine content feels to be about 15mg/g-17mg/g if I had to guess. The flavor is a very natural, fruity taste. It isn't sweet or candy-like, but quite refreshing and delicious. It reminds me a lot of watermelon, but at times I can taste a little bit of honeydew in the background in small hints. There's a touch of salt, and not much tobacco taste to speak of. It's pretty much a straight forward melon taste! If you like fruity snus, this is definitely one to check out.
