R42 (Classic) Super Strong White - Review. 3 September 2019.

12 June 2022 Update:  This product is now available from SnusMe.com!

Several years ago, I heard about a Swedish Match product named Rocket that was for sale in the border stores (which I did eventually get to review in 2017). At one point, that product evolved into one called Revel by Rocket. Revel by Rocket eventually evolved into R42, which now is a whole range of products with mint flavors (Cool MintPeppermint, and Green Mint, and "Super Strong"), a licorice flavor, and a tobacco flavor.  The R42 line also comes with some of the best looking snus cans on the market today - this one particularly.  It's grown from a border store only product line to now being for sale on the Swedish Match e-store.

The flavor description for this one says, "Dark and spicy tobacco character with clear hints of pepper and smoke." It comes in a 10g can with 13 portions for 0.77g portions. The nicotine content is 26mg/g (2.6%), or 20.02mg/portion.

The product this most closely reminds me of is G3 TNT, in terms of the flavor.  The aroma is a mild, but robust tobacco smell.  It's lightly smoky, and very raw smelling.  The portions are dryer than the average white portion, but not uncomfortable in the lip or anything.  The flavor of this one is a mild, raw, earthy, slightly smoky tobacco flavor.  It's not sweet, there's no hints of anything, it's just a straightforward tobacco taste.    That's pretty exciting, given that everything is mint flavored now.  The nicotine kick is quite strong, and feels well over the extra strong mark.  The flavor also lasts quite a while; I've found I can usually keep this one in for up to 1-1.5 hours.

I enjoyed this one.  It's a little strong for my taste, but I'm glad I got to try it.  If you like the taste of tobacco and want something with a really strong kick - check this one out.

As mentioned above, this is no longer a border store or SM site exclusive, you can now buy it from SnusMe.com.
