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.

I started my snuff journey with McChrystal's Original & Genuine, and now that I have tried the overwhelming majority of the snuffs they produce, I can safely say that I have yet to find one that has disappointed me. This raspberry snuff was certainly no exception. Once it hits the front of the nose, it delivers a nice, clean burst of raspberry followed by notes of wood, smoke, chocolate, earth, and biscuit from the base tobacco(s). The grind is medium, perhaps slightly finer. Moisture content is medium-high. Nicotine content is medium-low. It is incredibly easy to take frequently. Though Summer Harvest is not the most complex or challenging snuff out there, it does exactly what it was designed to do more or less perfectly. It would be a fantastic fruit snuff for beginners, and it would also make a great everyday or evening pinch for anyone looking for a pleasantly sweet, fruity snuff.
An all around great snuff, has a great base flavor custom to McChrytals, topped with a nice fresh raspberry scent, no menthol. Its moist enough, fine grinded, light-medium nicotine, McChrystals quality, just great all around really. 9/10.
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.
