The Captain of Tobaccos

This is the best aromatic and usually the one we aromatic lovers hold as the standard.  Moist and great smell in the pouch when you open it.  The flavor is the same from start to finish, although it does smoke wet and hot.  The room note is awesome and gets the ladies attention better than a puppy in the park (maybe not that good, but real close)  I recommend this to anyone.

Captain comfort

If you like mild aromatics, and I do, there's something comforting about  Captain Black White. Its delightful room note has pleased thousands over the years. Its mild, bite-less taste has also satisfied thousands over decades.
And you can buy it just about anywhere tobacco products are sold.
For the aromatic lover this is as close to an all-day smoke as you can get.
It's consistently cool in the bowl and most of the time its dry enough to smoke right out of the pouch.
I like both CB White and CB Blue (Royal) and might even slightly favor the Blue, but only slightly.
Overall, the Cap'n is a very comfortable companion.

Cheap and decent aromatix

This is the best of the CB blends. The casing and flavouring used is among the best ever made and delivers an outstanding roomnote. It is a moister tobaco so it can leave some gooopy mess on the pipe afterwards, so prepare your cleaners. Taste is very mild, does not offend the tongue at all. It has mild taste, but not so fullfilling. It is nevertheless a good aromatic tobacco and I would recommend this to any one who enjoys an occasional bowl af an aromatic blend. My wife loves the smell as well. I love it too.

Captain Black White

The Pouch says rich black Cavendish and mellowed burleys. It is a kind of ribbon cut but shot and stubby. This is the stickiest of all the CB. An overwhelming pouch aroma the strongest of the CB. That famous killer room note and also somewhat harsh on the gums. Burns relatively well fore such a wet feel. Decent smoke but not heavy or very thick. I think of all the CB this is the most common and if only drug store brands are available and the Royal is not stocked then this is an acceptable alternative. The old standard is just that an old standard and will be around forever. I say give it a try once. I won?t keep it around but might smoke a few bowls of it since I have the pouch here

Captain vanilla


I cannot see why many people find this tobacco bad. For me, this was a wonderful experience. It is a mild tobacco, the room has a wonderful smell and, if smoked properly, it will not bite the tongue. You will not even feel something on the tongue with this. Altough it is a very cheap tobacco, it is a good smoke, recommended for every smoker, whether it is a beginner or an advanced one. However, I gave it three stars because you cannot enjoy this very much: it burns really quick. But, in the end, it is a confortable tobacco: it is cheap, it is easily packed, it is easily lighted and smoked, it has a pleasant aroma, what can you ask more?

UPDATE:

Gets one more star. After a few months of aging, the aroma matures and the blend has almost a perfect balance between aromas and the tobaccos contained. I will definitely buy this again.

Still always a good smoke

No matter what This is still a great smoke.

I am not even a fan of Cavendish but this is always on the mark. Somtimes we get to sophisticated and we think we have graduated well pass this blend. Well somtimes a reunion is a good thing. It can bring you back down to earth.

A great all day smoke in any pipe grerat aroma very pipey

Still always a good smoke
