This was the first pipe tobacco I ever smoked and the quintessential aroma that I anticipated from pipe tobacco. Very nice tobacco that does require some extra dry time (about 24 hours with my 60%RH) but smokes very nice. Slow burn, mild flavour and beautiful room note.
When i began smoking pipe i always bought the convient store aromatics. Have since grown into latakia blends . But always enjoyed a bowl of captain black royal in the blue pouch. Was my favorite but needed a little more flavor . Well MacBaren hit a home run with this one . Its everything the CB version was lacking. More aroma , wich is wonderful an flavor. Still a light smoke but very pleasing for an Aromatic. 5 stars !
There are a bazillion reviews of this blend and about 99 percent are raves and they're right. I don't have a new take on it. It's good, try it and I think you'll end up keeping it on hand and enjoying every bowl you smoke.
Great packaging. Nice sturdy tin can with paper insulation. Re-closes tight and keeps the air out perfectly. Even the ship illustration on the lid is pretty cool. No complaints from the better half concerning the aroma. I like the smoothness. Not harsh at all. Much, much better than the standard tobacco stand products. I will buy it again.
