Opening the can of limited edition Nordic Spirit ‘Strawberry & Stripes’ - you get an immediate aroma of strawberries… not too sweet - but more of a ‘strawberries and cream’ vibe. The aroma is pronounced yet nuanced more so than other strawberry flavours I’ve tried in the past.
As with all Nordic Spirit products - it’s produced to a high standard in terms of packaging and the quality of the product itself. Pouches are soft and pillow-like - and the contents fill the pouches nicely so you’re not left with too much loose pouch which can be a problem with some brands.
In terms of nicotine release - they’re much on par with standard Nordic Spirit pouches - a pleasant tingly sensation for around 15 minutes - with the taste lingering for up to an hour.
Now on to taste… which as you can imagine pretty much follows the aroma. It’s a subtle strawberry flavour which is nicely balanced in terms of its sweetness - and there's a hit of cream or something lighter than makes the flavour a little more complex.
The pouches are 9mg/g which works out at 6mg per pouch - which is a perfect strength for beginners - and also anyone looking to help reduce their level of traditional smoking.
Nordic Spirit - with their subtle flavours and well-made pouches are a brand I’ll always find myself coming back to - and these pouches could quite easily become an everyday choice - however, they are of course limited edition so you’ll need to find somewhere that stocks them.

So to summarize - great-tasting pouch with a subtle and nuanced flavour and a well-made product with a comfortable form factor and cool can design.
