Fold a few of these flakes together and enjoy a nice long smoke, reminiscent of one of history’s luminary figures. All you’ll need is to find a foggy path to wander. Now blended by Mac Baren, the Capstan Original Flake is a slightly spicy favorite of pipe smokers all over the world.

This is without a doubt my favorite straight Virginia flake. It has depth and some complexity. It only burns hot if you push it too hard. The room note is natural and pleasant, and the tin note is scrumptious. It is a very satisfying yet gentle smoke. Highly recommended.
Citrusy. Good for a Summer day.
Smoked good taste good.
Capstan has a nice tobacco flavor, could be an every day smoke.
Capstan is an excellent navy blend flake. Clearly pressed and aged to blend the flavors. Given its price, I only get it as an occasional treat, but still a really wonderful blend.
