Capstan: Flake Yellow 1.75oz Pipe Tobacco

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.

黄绞盘 2021 点火后:浓重的青草味,也会有很好的木香,柑橘皮的香气,果味明显,烟气柔顺,慢慢的开始会有近似柠檬的果酸,酸度也会持续的上升。一段时间后,慢慢的,甜味开始上升,很快就能和它的酸味达到同一水平。中段结束的时候,甜味消失,酸味又开始变成主导。尾段烟气开始变得柔顺,过鼻舒服,果酸果甜,偶尔会有出现。也会有面包的香气,但基本上尾段都是甜甜的面包味,这款草需要小口品吸,烟气才会浓郁。总的来说,这款草前段劲道稍强,尾段的开始慢慢的变得柔和。果味相较于蓝绞盘来说更明显的,值得推荐。蓝黄绞盘其... Read More

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
因为蓝绞盘

和你一样,因为对蓝绞盘的喜爱而尝试黄绞盘。正如产品的描述,强度稍弱,口味偏淡,烟气不及蓝绞盘浓郁。此消彼长,没有浓郁烟气的包裹,过鼻少许胡椒辛辣感就会探出头来,这对我来说算是小小的不足。
One of the best

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

首先说 先抽的蓝绞盘,确实很好。然后才关注到这个黄绞盘,从颜色上就可以看出比蓝绞盘淡了不少。开罐就是好闻的水果味道,草属于比较湿的,也可能因为上海的天比较潮湿,醒了很久。用了三把不一样尺寸的斗来品吸,味道都是能出来,不挑斗型的好草。 味道的话 上来甜度就很棒,然后花香啊果香很明显,过鼻非常温和,中段主线味道以依旧甜甜奶味花香,酸味不是很明显,最主要整个过程非常惬意,不需要非常刻意的注意抽吸。你说他没个性,但我恰恰觉得这是一款常备斗草的要素,不会腻。 唯一的问题是强度比较弱,这是我唯一几款会抽到尾... Read More

I'm a huge fan of Capstan Original Navy Cut Flake (the Blue tin), but I alternate between that and Capstan's Gold Navy Cut Flake (the Yellow tin). Actually, what happens is that I end up opening a can of Gold when I open a tin of Blue and find it's n... 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.

Cool burning, very delicious in taste. Calm and mild tobacco. Probably, one of the best pipe virginia flake tobacco!

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

I absolutely love the flavor of this flake. The tin note is a mix of raisins and ketchup. Unfortunately, the pH level doesn’t agree with me. Even when I smoke as slowly and carefully as possible, it scorches the inside of my mouth for over a week. It... Read More

This tastes fine and has no bite at all but that said it also has the least flavor of any Virginia Ive had.Bland and boring.

比蓝绞盘淡很多就只有一股淡的V草香,甜度不高就纯烟草味香反而常抽不容易腻,其实个人感觉蓝绞盘太甜了出味比较明显适合新手而已

Tin note of stewed ripe figs, tart plums, and sugary Rasins. The yellowish-brown tobacco flakes easily rub out. Tobacco is moist, but no drying needed. Burns slow with a few relights. The strength is mild to medium and nic is mild to medium. Though l... Read More

It is of great quality really,you should try it.I tried,smoked through the tin but failed to find its charm.Maybe you should cellar it?Then it may taste better.Also the nicotine level was pretty high for me.

A lot like Orlik’s but a little brighter and, I might venture, slightly more complex. Smokes nice and smooth. Quite moist out of the tin.
Nice, but...

For me its good, but not too much. It has a likely bakery smell, and yes, its smooth, but a litlle bit smoky. Has good flavour, sweet, but the smoky sensation is always there...dont say nothing to me, i prefer others, even this is good.
Great Flake
