WOW! Blue Forest (Mini) - Review. 18 January 2017.

I've wanted to try this snus for a long time now! I heard about it a while back, but it was sold exclusively in Korea and I couldn't ever find any. Well, since GN Tobacco purchased SPT, all their snus products now fall under the GNT umbrella - including WOW!, Taboca, and Byron. This also means those products are now listed for sale at OdensSnus.eu. I have a friend who will order me products from them from time to time since they don't ship to the US, and he recently sent me some of this to try out! This is a snus with a blueberry flavor, which isn't very common in the snus world. Epok Blueberry is the only other one I can think of, and it's one I've been a fan of for quite some time. So I was excited to finally be able to try this one!

This is a mini portion snus, and the can contains 25 portions. It is a 7.5 gram can, so 0.3 grams per portion. The nicotine content is 7.5mg/g or 7.5% total. When you break that down it comes to 2.25mg/portion or 2.25% per portion. Needless to say, this isn't a very strong snus, so I use 2-3 portions of this when I do a review.

The product description at OdensSnus.eu doesn't provide a flavor description, and the website on the bottom of the can, SnusKorea.co.kr appears to not be working. So I haven't been able to find much background information other than the weight and nicotine amount from the OdensSnus website.

When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a very gentle, light, and airy presence of blueberry.  The portions are small, obviously, because they are mini size.  So I have been putting 2 to 3 at a time in my lip to get the most flavor/nicotine out of them that I can.  The taste is quite nice.  It's a mildly sweet, gentle blueberry taste.  For some reason, I pick up a faint hint of honey in the background with this one as well.  Being a mini portion, there isn't much nicotine to speak of, so usually when I use 2-3 portions at a time, it feels about as strong as a regular portion.  The flavor is quite nice, and lasts well over the one hour mark.  I wish this was available in a full size/regular size snus, because this one as a really nice flavor.  It's not something I would use all the time, but it's definitely a nice change of taste to mix things up a bit!
