- Room Note:
Smooth slight sweetness I add it to my aromatic blends from time to time. Makes a great cigarette. Very smooth.
Milder than the famous blue, it's a very satisfying straight Virginia flake. Great with a cup of coffee. Sweet, bready and a pleasant room note.
Great Virginia, wonderful taste.
Very nice smoke: "Round" flavor and pleasant aroma.
Great taste - medium mild, but with character!
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.
