Granted I have not used this in some time, but I always recall it was moist and had a definite vanilla /cavendish aroma. This had a weak tobacco aroma and was not pleasant smoking! Next step: approach Customer Service about a possible replacement.
I've been smoking the original for more years than I can remember. Excellent with zero bite. I've tried other tobacco but none compare!
Captain Black's Original blend is a smooth blend. It has notes of Marshmello, hints of dark chocolate, and coffee. Its room aroma is wonderful. Would recommend to new and experienced smokers.
Strange that the cost of capt black has gone up so much, the price of the can is ridiculously high at and above forty dollars.
The Holy Grail of Aromatic Pipe Tobacco. All of us serious pipe smokers often go to the ends of the offered blends to try and find the ultimate in flavor and aroma, at least I know I do. But somehow with all the tobaccos I have amassed, I always return to the genesis of what seems like my lifelong search. Captain Black Original is still the champion. It is both nostalgic reminding me of my younger times, and still one of the absolute best tasting and smelling pipe tobacco of all time. As they say "there is a reason it has been around for so long".
Very good flavor! A very smooth smoke!
Although I am not a connoisseur when it comes to pipe tobacco, I know what I like. Captain Black Original is the first tobacco I tried and it never disappoints. I am beginning to branch out more but Captain Black will always be my go-to tobacco.
Been trying all the Captain Black tobacco and I've liked every one so far.
