Al Capone (Vanilla) Dry Mini - Review. 20 February 2020.

I've had quite a few requests lately to review the Al Capone products, so I figured it was time I sat down and talked about these.  To specify, this is a dry mini snus product made by Råå S AB.  It is not the same as the V2 Tobacco Al Capone chew products like the Al Capone Vanilla Loose Chew, or the Al Capone Chew Bags.  I grabbed some of this on a recent order from SnusMe.com so I could review all the Al Capone varieties:  mint, vanilla, berry, and coffee.  The flavor description for this one says it has "a clear taste of vanilla".  Each can weighs 6g and has 20 portions, for 0.3g portions.  I'm not sure what the nicotine strength is, but I'll tell you how strong it feels when I get into the review.

On the left, you'll see a comparison between a regular size snus pouch (left) and a Al Capone dry mini snus pouch (right). The pouch itself is quite dry, as is the tobacco inside the pouch. On the right side, you'll see a pouch cut open and the tobacco inside the pouch. It is a very dry tobacco, which probably helps with the "non-drip" attribute of this snus.

When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a light, mild smell of vanilla. The portions are rather small, and quite dry. They aren’t that comfortable at first, but as they get more moist, they do get to be more comfortable. The flavor is a gentle, mild taste of vanilla. It’s not really sweet, or artificial tasting. As far as the nicotine goes, it feels to be about regular strength when I have two of them in. The flavor generally lasts about 35-45 minutes on average.  While I don't personally use this type of stuff, I know there's people out there who do.  It's a pretty mild taste, so if you want something non-mint, this would be one you might enjoy!
