I have smoked Red Orlik and Capstan for over 25 years. The yellow Capstan is my smoking best treat and favorite, so glad we now can get it in the US so I don't have to get my Mom to send it from Denmark :-)
Doesn’t get much better than this. A sweet, nutty flavor that delivers a dynamic smoke over and over. A must for any true pipe smoker. Best in class.
Great top notch Virginia. Very sweet and mild tasting with a heavy vinegar almost orange juice tin note. There is a spice taste very similar to cinnamon I would compare the taste to be very similar to Erik Stokkebye1855. Very mysterious and addictive secret spice ingredient, I love it.
This flake tobacco is at the peak of tobaccos, it has a great filling flavor. I prefer smoking this before a nice steak, or lobster dinner, it adds a good flavor to food and a great night time smoke. An all-around day or night smoke I’d say.
