I've had a tin of JIP in the last order I made and thoroughly enjoyed it. Honestly I'd need to try the two side by side to really look for the difference between them. They're both high menthol snuffs but just based on memory I feel comfortable saying the JIP seemed more sharp in the menthol delivery while this one seems to have a very (and I mean very) slightly more rounded delivery with a sweeter note in the background consistently through the menthol delivery. While JIP had a sweet scent after the menthol had subsided. Or hell, for all I know this snuff and JIP merely have different labels and I'm overthinking it lmao. Regardless this is a very good snuff and I will for sure be reordering in the future. On a side note I find it very strange that every other McChrystal's snuff has a review somewhere except this one. I'd be highly interested to see what Simon Moorhouse thinks about this one since he's a JIP veteran.
