    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.

    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.

    A definite favorite

    Posted by Carlo DeBlasio on 9th Oct 2020

    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.

    For me, a perfect straight Virginia

    Posted by Carlo DeBlasio on 20th Sep 2020

    I’m no expert, but I know what I know (and don’t know) and I know that for my money, Capstan Original Navy is a delicious and satisfying straight Virginia Flake. I recommend it and wish it was available in larger tins or in bulk.

    Capstan Original Navy Cut Flake (blue)

    Posted by Bryannicely232 on 7th Aug 2020

    A well-formed flake of dark to light brown tobacco. The tin note is similar to Escudo Navy DeLux. Pipe used is a Kiko meerschaum lined Bulldog. Took 2 char lights but true light lasted till the last 3rd of the bowl. The smoke started out slightly sweet but robust. This is slow-burning tobacco even when rubbed out. As the bowl progressed the sweetness gradually receded leaving a medium-full smoke similar to aged burley. A final light near the end of the bowl finished off the tobacco. Slight moisture left behind. A mild to medium Nicotine hit. Recommend a few minutes drying before filling the pipe. Short-lived aftertaste. The second smoke was in a noname Zulu. 20 minutes airing. The increased flavor and decreased burn rate. This is wonderful tobacco with plenty of potential in the cellar. Docked one star for the personal desire of stronger Nicotine content. I cellared 10 tins and glad I did.
