We are excited to announce the return of the Capstan Aged Series—a limited offering of four of the most beloved tinned mixtures from the Mac Baren factory in Denmark. Three of the four pipe tobacco blends in this set were sealed in 2018, and have spent nearly six years maturing to refined perfection (the outlier being Capstan Gold Ready-Rubbed, which was sealed in 2013 and has been aging eleven years!)

One of the greatest joys of the tobacco pipe hobby is the chase—the endless pursuit of the perfect smoke. Though a relatively new practice in the scope of pipe tobacco history, “cellaring” has become a cornerstone of the pipe smoker’s exploration—the aging of already great blends into a refined maturation that only time can impart. There are ways some try to simulate aging to get the effects without the wait. We hear of the hacks to expedite the process through all kinds of DIY methods. Such workarounds certainly speak to the resourcefulness and ingenuity of the pipe smoker, but when it comes to the refined, dynamic delight of an aged blend, we know there is no true substitute for time itself. We are giving the greenlight on instant gratification. Master Blender Per Jorge has picked ten of Mac Baren’s superb blends that have the most to gain from the aging process.

    What a great deal!

    Buying on smokingpipes would be $8 more for four tins of fresh just made tobacco. Here - pre aged for better price! So happy with my purchase!

    Aged Delight

    Posted by Wainair on 1st Jan 2022

    It’s amazing what a little time can do for a blend! All of these blends mellowed and sweetened with age to make a truly luxurious smoke! Well worth the extra few bucks per tin!

    One of the gold standard VA flakes, now improved with three years of aging.
