You can find other snuff reviews here.

Summer Harvest

So this snuff from McChrystal’s has a real strawberry field aroma to it and is one of my personal favourites.

The smell is a mix of summer flowers with strong strawberry overtones that evokes memories of summer in the countryside.

That wonderful summer aroma lingers pleasantly in the nose after using the snuff - and certainly leaves you wanting more.

The light, fruity taste would prove this a great introductory snuff and is also perfect for those who aren’t fans of menthol based snuff flavours.

So right after opening the can it’s clear what flavour we’re dealing with here - chocolate!

The strong cacao scent hits the nose immediately - along with a sweet aroma of unprocessed chocolate.

It’s not a particularly dark chocolate taste - but not your Diary Milk either. Aztec sits somewhere nicely in the middle and provides a warm, soothing aroma.

The chocolate flavour mixed with the natural tobacco flavour of the snuff makes for an enticing option - and a must have for chocolate lovers!

Star Gazer

Star Gazer is an aniseed flavoured snuff - which isn’t personally to my taste - but it certainly has a strong, clear and inviting aroma and taste.

Another good choice for those who aren’t a fan of menthol snuff - and perfect for aniseed lovers - this snuff would be a great choice.

So not to my personal liking - but another strong aroma snuff from McChrystal’s worth giving a try - just avoid if you’re not an aniseed fan!
