I can see why this has been around for 150 years. It is just a plain, good smoke. Little citrus. The cut is an interesting change of pace from the ribbon I normally smoke. Slow burning and easy to manage.
I enjoyed smoking Capstan Gold. I can definitely taste the tanginess of citrus in the smoke. There's little to no bite at all. I would buy this again in the future.
Blend in a little Turkish Ribbon and Green River Black Cav. and you have a fabulous smoke. Consistently great.
A mild, tobacco with a good flavor profile. Packs well and smokes without a bite to the bottom of the bowl. It is excellent for the first pipe of the day and throughout the day.
Like smoking a good cuban cigar.
