    Took awhile to come around to this but it is a favorite now

    Posted by Andrew H. the Cajun Piper on 24th Aug 2022

    It took me a long while and probably a PH change on my part but I find myself waning to smoke this above my other blends. I usually do not smoke often and find myself gravitating to Capstan. I find it needs a month in the tin once opened and a full rub out. Burns easy ad decently cool. Has one of the best Malty mouthfeels in a Virginia that I have encountered in my almost 2 decades of pipe smoking. It is now a comforting friend that I will get more of for the long run. Ages well.

    Capstan Blue Flake tobacco

    Posted by David Glover on 31st Jan 2022

    I primarily smoke English blends. But I have recently been on a Virginia kick and I follow JimInks tobacco reviews and decided to give this one a try. It is a great and relaxing smoke, burns cool, clean and smooth with a very consistent flavor at a slow pace. I have been cube cutting the flake and gravity filling the bowl, and find that this method provides me with a great flavor filled smoke and , so far it hasn't required any relights and it burns consistently to the bottom of the bowl with no bite at all. I am on my 3rd tin and I know I will purchase more. Wish it could be purchased in bulk! Thanks, David

    My favorite straight VA

    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.

    Solid Virginia flake

    Subtle but complex smoke that evolves as you enjoy it.

    A nice easy-going smoke. Pleasant straight Virginia, good for all-day sipping.

    Let it age

    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!

    Capstan Blue

    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.

    Capstan Blue flake

    Posted by Bone on 21st Jan 2021

    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.
