McChrystal's Highland Ice is a fine blend of earthy tobaccos with a tangy highland taste. This mix favors the medicinal spices such as camphor and eucalyptus coated in cooling menthol. The grind is fluffy and medium coarse with medium moisture and a rich brown color. The sensation in the nose is mild but icy, while providing a more than adequate nicotine hit. An extremely refreshing decongestant.

If you want a snuff to open you sinuses while bringing a very enjoyable burn, this is the one. The menthol, etc., is prominent but doesn't over power the tobacco. Next time I won't accidentally buy the mini . . . .
Medicated 99 is my go-to snuff, but because of the killer pricing and "small tin" selections, it's easy to test snuffs without having to outlay big bucks. EXCELLENT business model. That said, Highland Ice is a nice, cool blast and not at all musky...very clean and designed for the menthol lover. Awesome.
This is an excellent way to clear your head and keep charging forward on those dog days. Not crazy strong and can use daily.
Ok, so I'm in Florida. I don't know if you have the Vicks Inhalers in the UK. So this may make no sense to most, but us "Colonials" will get it. That makes it sound much too strong, but it is very nice. I love the scent/flavor ( I still don't know exactly how to describe this) chamfor and menthol for the win!
The name Highland Ice is a misnomer, as this snuff is more medicated than cool. Its camphor is predominant, erasing the menthol it contains. If ice is what you are looking for, I recommend Pöschl’s Gletcher Prise, whose menthol is so frosty that icicles start dripping from your nose. Nonetheless it is a wonderful snuff that I enjoy using in alternation with McCrystal’s CBD. Red like the famed walls of Marrakech, it is the stuff of rest & relaxation; perfect while on leave, like a simple gin & tonic serving to put one’s nerves at ease. Less intense than Wilson’s Grand Cairo, it is fitting for a statesman. I picture Winston Churchill at La Mamounia, with a used tin of it on his easel, dipping his brush in it to deftly mix his aquarelle.
