    I can’t find any reference to it, but does <C-w><C-]> work? – D. Ben Knoble Dec 7 at 2:17
  • @D.BenKnoble Yes, it does! (albeit a horizontal split) – Geremia Dec 7 at 3:49

This will do it:

CTRL-W ]                    *CTRL-W_]* *CTRL-W_CTRL-]*
CTRL-W CTRL-]   Split current window in two.  Use identifier under cursor as a
        tag and jump to it in the new upper window.
        In Visual mode uses the Visually selected text as a tag.
        Make new window N high.

  • One could even remap the commands to use a vertical split – D. Ben Knoble Dec 7 at 4:06
