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.

Not what I had expected. Not as aromatic as I had hoped.
It’s not latakia and it’s not aromatic test
this blend gets me nothing. Just complexing tobacco.
I was "tricked" into trying this by a fellow pipe smoker. He tossed his pouch to me & said: "try this new English". I'm a hard-core English/Balkan smoker from way-back and thought this was a nice mild, satisfying smoke with "something" extra that I couldn't put my finger on. I quite enjoyed it. I almost fell out of my chair when he told me it was Capitan Black! I now always keep a tin in my rotation when I want to smoke in public (it actually has a very tolerable room note - unlike most of my other blends). Don't let the name fool you - this is a very different Captain Black than you are used too. A great foray into the world of English blends if you are coming from Aromatics and want to dip your toes into the "Dark Side". Highly recommended.
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.
