All Cavendish blend, sweet, smooth, pleasant taste, pleasant room note, and no bite. Captain Black Gold another successful creation by the blends at Lane. A mild vanilla paired with honey and the familiar flavors of relaxation. A tobacco many find in one of their first pipes, and will continue to back as the years pass by. Captain Black Gold is a blend to keep hand all day and every day.

My husband loves it and I like the smell of the tobacco, MUCH better than when he used to smoke cigarettes.
A mellow, mild, somewhat pleasant smoke. Decent but not particularly remarkable to my tastes. I enjoyed it enough to finish the smoke, but not enough to reach for it again. Initially burned hot and then cooled off about 1/3-1/2 way down.
After an abstention from smoking for over 45 years, I started smoking my Kirsten Pipe I had kept all these years about 18 months ago. After trying several old favorite tobacco blends I happened upon CB Gold and never looked for any other. It was perfect for me; until after about one year, I bought a tin of Gold from my local Smoke Shop and the contents were unsmokable for the most part. I contacted the maker of CBG and they sent 2 coupons, which I did not use because the local smoke shop stopped selling the Gold and the coupons did not cover the approximate $46.00 I paid for the tin. I had to discard the tin and began looking for a local Gold dealer, which I had no luck finding since I live in a rather small town. Then I found TobaccoPipes.com and placed an order which I received in only a few days. The three small pouches I ordered were identical to that I had smoked for the 18 months. Thankfully the contents were NOT like that in the tin. TobaccoPipes.com fills my orders promptly and I receive it, first-class, in about 3-4 days. Love the taste of Captain Black Gold!
Great smoking experience comes from this long-time reliable Captain Black. It provides a smooth, comfortable pipe smoking experience, which fills the room with a pleasant aroma.
I'm new to pipe smoking but this is very smooth and flavorful.
Consistently a good smoke.
I have and continue to try different tobaccos in other countries and I have to say that I personally have not found any other tobacco that you can smoke all day with the same great results, I do switch off throughout the day to other Capt Blk blends but I always finish the day with a relaxing bowl of Gold.
Since Dunhill tobacco stopped being available, I tried numerous blends and ultimately came to Captain Black Gold. It is enjoyable tobacco, and I am surprised at the number of people in our village who come up to me and tell me how they like the aroma and that it reminds them of times past. This usually surprises me as I expect them to do that phony cough and ask me to stop smoking.
The flavor is pleasant, the aroma is obviously good, and it is fairly cool smoking, Have tried numerous other brands but keep coming back to the Captain. If I remember correctly, I started with Captain Black more decades ago than I care to remember, and I am back with it. I recommend it as an overall fine tobacco.
