McChrystal's S.P. is a true homage to the epithet left by Sales and Pollard. The original recipe has been transmitted and altered since the 18th century. The essential ingredient is bergamot enhanced with a floral and minty bouquet laying over top perfectly aged broad leaf. This particular attempt to recreate the original S. P. blend is one of the best. A smooth and easy to take snuff that has a mild kick of nicotine and a pleasurable, long lasting aroma in the nose. Perfect to begin or end any day.

SP is a mild bergamot and lemon blend that showcases the tobacco more than the citrus flavouring. It is similar to Smoker’s Blend, but much milder; I would say it is almost creamier. Low in moisture and of medium grind, its nicotine content is on the low side. It is a civilized snuff, to be enjoyed on a lazy weekend’s morning whilst perusing either the Financial Times or the funny papers, whichever brings you more mirth.
This is a great SP. I really enjoy the level of bergamot they decided to go with. This one lets the base tobacco shine through along with the delightful light but persistent bergamot. Not my all day but I always keep some on hand for when the mood strikes. Probably my favorite sp out there.
I find this one a great addition to the SP side of the palate - in fact Id go so far as to note my slight preference to Wilsons SP100, or Gawiths SP . I get Bergamot 8/10 , lemon 2/10 - perhaps black pepper 2/10, there is a bitterness to it like pecan. Scent medium to long lasting. Grind is not super fine ( more coarse that HDT say ) but standard in its cohort. Moisture - is moderate mine wasn't dry , but not clumpy, quite fluffy texture. Insufflated it can pepper the throat ( which I like ). Minimal front drip moderate rear drip. No clogging. Can pound through this stuff ! Good nicotine content say, moderate.
A complex and richer SP than many of the rest. Balanced natural bergamot along with a pleasant light musky, floral component that is the lavender. As with all McChrystal's snuffs the nutty tobacco base is delightfully present, and that is what you're left with when the sent fades; a beautiful rich tobacco sent. This and O&G are all you really need. I think it is the best SP on the market. Outstanding!
McChrystal's SP is just what I expected from an SP. Wonderful body and a scent I truly enjoy. Citrus and a touch of floral notes come from this light brown, fine grind snuff.
I truly enjoy this one and usually have a tin close at hand. If you are looking for a daily SP, I would say try this one- you may just find its the one you are after.
