Offroad Classic (Original and Mini) - Reviews. 22 March 2020.

V2 Tobacco has been discontinuing/changing a lot of products lately, but also launching some new ones! Today we're reviewing two such new ones: Offroad Classic, in the Original Portion and Mini Original Portion formats. When I spoke to V2 about this, they said it was more of a melding of two products that have been discontinued: Offroad Original and Phantom Classic. I haven't ever really been a big user of Offroad Original, but I'm a pretty big Phantom phan (see what I did there?).  I recently was browsing SnusMe.com and saw these for sale there, and had to try them!

Offroad Classic (Original Portion)

Flavor Description - "A taste of bergamot and citrus."
Can Contents - 18g, 20 portions, 0.9g portions
Nicotine - 8mg/g (0.8%), 7.2mg/portion

This is a really interesting snus.  If I had to describe it best, it seems to be like a beefier Phantom Original Portion.  The aroma is a rich, earthy tobacco character with a light tea/herbal type presence.  The portions are nice and plump, quite moist, and have a quick flavor release!  The flavor is a present taste of tobacco; it is robust and earthy, and quite flavorful.  I do pick up a mild tea-like presence, but it's not overtly citrus.  The flavor is mostly front and center tobacco.  It's really good.  The nicotine level on this one feels to be about the regular strength level, and the flavor lasts about 45-50 minutes on average!

Offroad Classic (Mini Original Portion)

Flavor Description - "A taste of bergamot and citrus."
Can Contents - 10g, 20 portions, 0.5g portions
Nicotine - 8mg/g (0.8%), 4mg/portion

This review is going to be easy - everything I said about the large size version is the same except the portion and the nicotine level.  As far as the portion goes, it is a mini portion, but it's a mini slim!  It feels great in the lip and is quite comfortable.  Even with the lighter weight, it doesn't feel as tiny as most mini portions usually do.  And on the nicotine level, it feels lighter.  At 4mg/g, it feels a little less strong than a regular strength.  But aroma, taste, and flavor longevity is all the same.  It's pretty good, and I imagine mini snus lovers who want something different will probably dig this one.

I really dig these products. As someone who liked Phantom an awful lot, this will be added to my favorites.  And at $2.99 a can for the full size and $2.69 a can for the mini size, you really can't beat that.  It also has a great tobacco-centric flavor.  So, if you're like me, and love the taste of tobacco - check this one out.  It's a great twist on the classic taste, but, as I said earlier, beefier!
