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.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
Small: 4.4 g.
Tub: 200 g.
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!”
JIP! has a crisp-cool satisfying menthol kick. The first couple of times I tried it I had a sneezing session and my eyes watered to the point where I almost couldn't see. I've gotten used to it now and it's not-so-quietly climbing the charts as my go-to snuff, playing in heaving rotation with the other hits like Olde English, Sturco and Glacier. For you occasional menthol fans this is must try. For you menthol lovers - go ahead and order several tins as you will find your hand reaching for the JIP! time and time again. It's similar to Sturco but has late-hit herbal undertone after the menthol. It's powdery and fine but does have some cohesiveness when getting it on the shovel so you can really pile it high and blast off to the peak of Menthol Mountain. The only competition in the menthol game that McChrystal's has are other lines in its own brand.
JIP has a great reputation and it didn’t fail me. Strong menthol and oh so refreshing. Not huge in the nicotine to me. Seems I could sniff the whole can and still desire more. Very opening in the nose. Decent lasting scent in the snoz. This is that snuff you will want to have a bucket of all the time ready to use. Very good favorite already.
I order jip anuff and it was great twice the menthol twice the nicotine instant coffee like buzz not very many flavors
Think this might be in top five snuffs because it is easy to get at stores around the world!
