McChrystal's Original and Genuine is just that, an original blend of tobaccos and Aesculapian botany that captures the genuine meaning of a medicated snuff. There is a precise mixture of camphor and menthol that activate the base feel in the nose then followed by a bitter sweet ending re-mindful of citronella. The mid moist and fluffy grind pack a nice nicotine kick. This is a very well balanced blend that can easily be set apart from other mentholated offerings. This is a must if you want unique and righteous snuff.

O&G is the standard by which other medicated snuffs are measured. Good from the first pinch to the last little specks being chased around a sad and echoey, empty little tin. Delicious.
McChrystals snuffs, to me, are either a really good or so-so, but never bad. I have purchased a fair amount of their snuffs and I have yet to encounter a terrible snuff of theirs. My all time favorite menthol or medicated snuff is JIP, it has a hard straight menthol kick and a pleasant tobacco base without the camphor or eucalyptus after effects. Now, I don’t know why Its has taken me so long to try OG, but I wish I would have done so earlier. During the winter months I go heavy on the mentholated snuffs, and when it was time to throw in an order, I found OG was all on order except for the 3g package, so I got it. On my next order, I was sure to include a 21g tin. The grind of OG is a fine grind as most McChrystals snuffs, but not at all dusty. The color is a rich medium brown and easy to take. When I first tried this snuff I fell in love with it, its just perfectly crafted. The menthol is not as potent as JIP, but it does have a good cool menthol kick. Where this snuff shines is after the menthol kick starts to subside, your treated to a minty coolness with pepperminty undertones, and subtle leathery hints. It does have a slight burn and the nic kick is about normal for most McChrystals. Now this is a mentholated English snuff at its best, the way one should be. A definite all day snuff, and if taken out in the breezy outdoors, you can pick up on all its subtle aromas, just coolness without the runny nose feeling. This has now become my main go to snuff. A masterpiece in my opinion!
McChrystal's was my first foray into snuff and was my gateway to nasal entertainment. Nicely mentholated without being a slap in the face or a punch in the nose. A calming balm after a long day fighting nuisances.
This was my first snuff so i may be a bit biased, but it truly is refreshing and amazing, I love the tobacco base they use, and the eucalyptus and menthol kick is very nice indeed. Satisfying nicotine hit too, I was quitting smoking when i first started snuffing and this did the job.
Very satisfying! Like having a candy cane covered in Vicks vapor rub rammed up the hooter and stabbing your eye. Strong menthol. Strong burn. Decent nicotine. Flavor lasts a good bit. I like 👍.
