McChrystal's Wee Dram warms the nostrils then proceeds to the spirit. This well blended tobacco provides an initial nip of heat quickly reverting into a warm and comforting sensation in the nose. The tobacco taste is well surrounded with aromas of dried fruits, sweet vanilla followed by notes of hazelnut or macadamia. The grind is medium fine, the moisture is intermediate and the endorphin hit is above average and sustained. This snuff should be treated with reverence and shared with friends and a fine Scotch.

Wee Drams is a warm snuff with a mild burn, but only present right at the onset. Its flavours are subtle and well-balanced, with nothing too dominant that may overwhelm or cause any form of offense. There are hints of leather, vanilla and candied orange peel, which serve as a pleasant refreshment, which does not mask or alter the taste of any drink it is meant to accompany. Good with scotch, as it is not too sweet, it is a particularly fine pairing to an Old Fashioned. This inoffensive snuff is not the stuff of exotic locales, but rather, a visit, right down the street, to your favourite local speakeasy.
Although I can see this pairing well with a whiskey on the rocks, it's flavor is subtle and hard to pin down. A bit nutty, a bit vanilla. Very mild. You will like be it or go "meh"
