Capstan: Flake Yellow 1.75oz

Product Number: 003-581-0001

A smooth, bright Virginia flake of famous refinement and antiquarian origins, Capstan Yellow, like its medium-bodied Blue sibling, was originally created by W.D. & H.O. Wills of Bristol during the latter half of the 19th century. Suffice to say, it's no accident this smoking mixture has survived as a favorite to so many generations.

Product: Capstan Flake Yellow 1.75oz
Without any doubt this is one of the best flakes on the market. Won't bite and a lovely leaf first thing in the morning. At least that's been my experience. I'm one of the classic grumpy old buggers and can tell you this is to be highly recommend... Read More

This is blue’s flue cured brother. If you have been a cigarette smoker you’ll appreciate this one. Tastes a lot like Dunhill Red cigarettes. This is not bad. In fact it’s rather nice. Pure mellow Virginia, flue curing that brings out the sugars in th... Read More

This is really high quality leaf done right. It's a little brighter than the blue in flavor and doesn't really have the malty note. It does have a mild natural lemongrass note and a delicious natural virginia sweetness. Very pure and clean tasting to... Read More

A neat little light Virginia blend. It won't bite and it'll deliver the flavor. Though it isn't a powerhouse of flavor. It's still worth the occasional tin.

This is a very respectful flake: respectful to the smoker. It's cut beautifully, and one flake fits perfectly into a standard bowl. Rubbed out seems to offer the most flavour. High, grassy bouquet; cool, mellow smoke. I liked it quite a bit; however ... Read More

소량의 벌리나 페릭이 느껴짐. 불루보다 못함. 그래도 휼륭함. 버지니아 입문용으로 적극 추천.

I was gifted a tin of this fine tobacco. At first blush it was tentative, and it built through the maiden bowl. Now, with half the tin gone, I will be ordering more as it has become a very consistent and reliable and pleasurable smoke. Tasty and flav... Read More

I used to find virginias revolting, but after calming down my smoking cadence I found this to be an absolutely beautiful, classic smoke. The first VA blend I've truly come to enjoy, it's very subtle and zesty, and makes a great all day blend. Don't e... Read More

Waste of money nothing but blandness here folks. One reviewer compared it to Orlik, totally on the other side of the spectrum from Orlik or the like

SHould be 5 stars but my cursor slipped while rating (LOL)! After smoking the blue version flake I moved on to the yellow. Most everything said about the blue can be said about the yellow with regard to presentation, handling, smoking characteristics... Read More
