    I smoked Capstan Blue back when it was made in Liverpool, England. At least as my memory allows, I think it was Old Liverpool. Capstan Blue Navy cut is a pure ripe Virginia Tobacco that is tangy and creamy. This is what other Virginias will taste similar to if you let them age. Capstan is good straight from the tin! A higher nicotine level in the blue than the gold. Smooth and delicious, a very satisfying smoke. I’m quite pleased to see it being sold in the States again.

    Nothing fancy BUT

    If you want a good quality pure Virginia to smoke this was a good and smooth smoke. You can smoke as is or mix it, out of the can it was dry and ready to use. Interested to try the ages variety, also you can get some to age yourself. I imagine it goes well with an English ale!

    Very good classic smoke

    Reminds me of ages long since past when men were stranded on ice. I first tried it based on hearing it was Tolkien’s go to while writing the Hobbit. Then I found it is a classic British navy and exploration tobacco. Taste the age of adventure! Spicy, sweet, very good— sadly my wife was not keen on the room note.

    Great VA blend

    Finally had my first bowl of this and it is tasty. It's a broken flake, so I'd recommend a little breakup and drying time. Pack it up and enjoy it! My tin was fresh, so I'm sure aging works well.

    If you like aged Virginia tobacco, you will love a pipe of Capstan. I like it any time of day. Medium strength with no bite this sweet plant will make you feel fine.
