"Great!"

Product: Cornell & Diehl Captain Bob's Blend Bulk
Update: Rapidly becoming one of my favorite blends. The key is understanding it! Right now, my mindset is like "It's mildly flavored Latakia with that dash of Perique"... And that's the only way that I can describe this blend - "interesting". ... Read More

I'm not precisely sure how to describe this, but I like it. Be careful, though this ghosted like nobody's business.
I'm sorry Capt Bob...this is a mess.

I don't understand how this can have so many different types of tobacco and supposedly TONS of flavorings and yet just tastes like generic burley soaked in cheap artificial grape soda. Seriously...it's a mess. This stuff stinks something fierce. I le... Read More
Vanguard blend for the top of the english aromatics

Product: Cornell & Diehl Captain Bob's Blend Bulk
Oh heavens! Oh glory! I had the intuition this would be cool, and indeed it was. This is completely out of the ordinary and rather uncompromised with traditional aromas, a vanguard blend, and modern art blend if you want. Captain Bob's blend come... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Captain Bob's Blend 8oz
Very unique blend for sure as Nick N. says. Base English with a grape soda (or grape lolipop) top note. Sounds odd but it works for me. I would say it fits in the American English category, like Edward G. Robinson blend, which I also enjoy very much.... Read More
Secret Favorite

Product: Cornell & Diehl Captain Bob's Blend Bulk
This has been a secret favorite of mine for years. When Capt. Bob first started to promote it online he got some flak (pun intended) but I was willing to give it a shot just from the description alone. I have to say that the first couple of bowls lef... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Captain Bob's Blend Bulk

Tastes like grape. Weird but not unpleasant
Very Very Burley
March 24, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Captain Bob's Blend Bulk
This is a relatively strong blend that, to me at least, was overpowered by the burleys right from the start. I can taste a bit of the spice from the latakia, perique, and orientals, but to me the burleys gave it an acrid, sour flavor. If you do not l... Read More
Not for me

Something about this just doesn't taste good to me. I would guess it's the casing / topping. Though it doesn't bite, it tends to give a stinging sensation on my tongue.

Capt. Bob's: Great change of pace smoke

I avoid Latakia and aromatics, but in this blend everything works! Think grape soda -- not cloying, and nice for a change.
