All I can say is that this is the finest tobacco you can get. Smooth, citrusy, an all day every day smoke.
Little more darker flavour than its brighter brother yellow, and is great too.
Subtle but complex smoke that evolves as you enjoy it.
A nice easy-going smoke. Pleasant straight Virginia, good for all-day sipping.
I did not like this one when I first tried it. It sat in the cellar for two years and now it is my all-day everyday smoke!
This is very much my type of Virginia tobacco. I enjoy that it's neither too light nor too dark. Can be smoked all day.
Such a good flake that will only get better with age. If this were less expensive and or in bulk I would be like Tolkien and smoke this every day. Zesty, creamy, super grassy, yet a mild to medium smoke.
Not only does the tobacco taste excellent, but it also arrived several days earlier than I was expecting. Will definitely order from here again when I need more.
I’m a fairly new piper (2 months) but Capstan Original is definitely one of my favorite Virginias. Sweet, grassy, slow burning and meant to savor. It will likely remain in my rotation as long as it is produced.
