McChrystal's Summer Harvest is a zesty snuff packed with the lively aroma of ripe raspberries. This fruity pinch is accompanied with a pastoral tobacco taste reminiscent of a stroll through a mature woodland. There is an instantaneous bloom of flavor upon sniffing with little to no irritation. The texture is mid-moist, the grind is fine and the nicotine is fair to middling but endures quite well. This berry blend can be a lovely break from any routine.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
Mini: 3.5 g.
Large: 8.75 g.

Unique to the snuffs I have tried thus far, Summer Harvest combines a deep raspberry flavour with a base of wet autumn leaves. Its slight burn recalls mornings of warm buttered toast generously smothered in raspberry jam. It triggers childhood memories of Maynard’s chewy Swedish Berries, which always got stuck in the back of my teeth. It is a pleasant evening snuff, which serves as a replacement to pudding or in accompaniment to a plate baked camembert and glasses of late vintage port.
It's a sweet raspberry scent that isn't artificial or too in your face. Very pleasant, not overpowering. Nicotine hit was a bit small but since the scent lingers for a few minutes and seems to dissipate very fast, this isn't much of an issue. Easy to take, not much of a burn. 4 stars.
I received this in a mini tin variety pack. Only took 11 days to Canada from the UK. Smells more like chocolate raspberry or soft scented flowers with only a small amount of nicotine. Zero burn. I was expecting a more mentholated raspberry, so that was a little disappointment.
What a treat! Moist and finely ground. Wonderful, sweet raspberry flavour.
Didn't really notice it upon opening the snuff box.
Really comes through when you actually snuff it
