McChrystal's Warm Glow is an allegory to the holiday festivities so present in the western tradition. A spicy mixture of clove, fir, allspice and a piquant whiff of cinnamon that offers the nose a luxuriant robe of a winter's evening blessed with a warm hearth. The tobacco taste is present but not predominant which is quite fitting for this snuff. The texture, moisture and nicotine are all mid to moderate and should be considered secondary qualifiers to the celebratory spirit provided. Cheers and happy holidays all year round.

I really like this one. It is not like some other flavored snuffs that are sometimes hard to pick up the scents they are supposed to have. There is no mistake here. It has a really strong authentic clove scent. If you like clove, this is great.
Instantly reminds me of the holidays. Smooth and delicious. Would absolutely recommend this! Try it. You won't be disappointed!
From the time I was a small child to the time I reached adulthood, some older friends of the family provided me with a fresh batch of spice cookies every Christmas. Sadly, they have passed, but this snuff reminds me of the cookies they always gifted me. Darker than the other McChrystal's snuffs I have tried, this snuff offers a moderate nicotine content, a fairly fine grind, and good moisture. It is incredibly easy to take. The aroma profile is initially dominated by cinnamon and clove before notes of fir and allspice join the fray. Undertones of chocolate, earth, molasses, raisin, and fresh baked bread are provided by the base tobacco(s). Alternately warming and cooling in the nose, taking this snuff is like inhaling the aromas of fresh baked Christmas cookies around the hearth while aromas of all the other usual holiday trimmings fill the room. It offers a truly lovely experience and a heaping helping of holiday nostalgia. I expect a large tin or two of this will end up being a yearly purchase around the holidays for me. If nothing else, it will make the most hectic, stressful time of year a little easier to survive.
Cloves are the flower buds of an evergreen tree that originally grew in the Moluccas. The Dutch East India Company enslaved the whole region in an attempt secure their monopoly on this and other spices. Both antiseptic and anaesthetic, cloves provide a warm calming sensation when ingested. This snuff combines cloves, allspice and, what seems to be, aromatic cedar with a pulverized tobacco that sports a mild nicotine hit. Warm Glow is a wonderful, non-mentholated, way to clear the sinuses’ cobwebs and is perfectly matched to Asian cuisine. I take objection to it being classified a mere Christmas treat as it is, rather, a dish to be shared at the communal table whenever hot chillies and garlic are being exalted at the gastronomical altar.
Not at all piney or wood scented. Not really cinnamon..maybe clove? Definitely a Christmas flavour. I am warming up to it.
