This is my first mentholated snuff. I love it. All my non mental snuffs make my nose get clogged up. This is great taken alone or you can take a small bump and then take your other non menthol snuff and sniff that and you'll never get clogged up. This doesn't taste spicy, but when you first sniff it you do get a slight burn that goes away in a millisecond due to the menthol. I highly recommend this. This is now my favorite snuff.
