Captain Black Premium Edition introduces Black Sea. Mellow Burley tobaccos, combined with sweet Virginias and soft smooth Black Cavendish tobaccos makes for an excellent smoke. Yet Black Sea sets itself apart with the addition of smoky Latakia tobacco. A wonderful marriage of sweet and smoky. Captain Black, Black Sea is tin worthy and should be enjoyed often.

Good. Very mild. Tends to burn a little fast.
Mellow with no tongue bite. Very flavorful and different from other Captain Black offerings. Quickly becoming my favorite.
For those of you wanting to venture away from aromatics, this is a good start. Very pleasant smoke, without a bite and has a "fullness" or flavor I can't pinpoint, that aromatics just don't have. I have reordered this blend several times and for the price, easy to try it out.
Definitely, a different blend when it comes to captain black, but I think they've done a good job on this.
