McChrystal's Jip! is a flagship snuff whose namesake was given to President Lincoln's faithful companion. This little dog had the run of the White House during that memorable presidency and was said to have helped assuage the president's many burdens. This snuff has some of the same virtues. A pleasure that is available anywhere at any time with a nice pleasant nudge of endorphins to help through the day. The medicated nature of this blend is a blast of cool spices. The initial menthol subsides to camphor or eucalyptus and finally ends up on top of a lovely tobacco taste. The feel in the nose is quite refreshing with a medium moist texture and a medium grind. Well worth the try as a contender for the medicated slot in your rotation. Enjoy a pinch.

As a new snuff user, I anticipated menthols would be like Vicks Vapo Rub but this is very pleasant. The menthol is refreshing and not overpowering. The place to start if you want to try a menthol. Not just a good menthol but one of the best overall snuffs.
I love President Lincoln and his dog best all-around snuff there is take too much and it’s going to blow your Ears off
Strong but smooth, be gentle or it’ll take ya out the game, definitely one of my favorites tho, that menthol blast followed by the natural aromas from how it was processed immediately spices up the day, great for work and breakfast time or that afternoon crash
Jip has become my go to snuff. It is powerful with a great finish. So smooth and sweet. As mentioned by others it is a great sinus clearer. My snuff use has definitely gone up since I put this great product in to my collection.
McCrystal’s has five snuffs that are variations on the same mentholated theme: McChrystal’s Original, Glacier, Higland Ice, JIP and Sturco. They are all easy to take. JIP is stronger than McCrystal’s Original with a higher menthol and eucalyptus flavour. It is weaker that the Sturco, which also has a more peppermint overtones. It does not have the candy cane sweetness of Glacier and less camphor than Highland Ice. This “medicated” snuff is very good for clearing the sinuses; much more effective than a Vick’s nasal stick. “JIP”, of course, is Dr. Doolittle’s dog, who is known for his very keen sense of smell: “I don’t need any light to look for a man who smells of Black Rappee snuff” said Jip as he climbed the stairs. “If the man had a hard smell, like string now – or hot water, it would be different. But SNUFF! – Tut! Tut!”
