Capstan: Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz

Product Number: 003-581-0004

Like the more mellow-bodied Capstan Yellow, Capstan Blue was originally created by W.D. & H.O. Wills of Bristol well over a century ago. It's remained a favorite to countless pipe smokers across generations (J.R.R. Tolkien having been on of its most noted aficionados), a testament to the quality of this fine Virginia flake, here offered in ready-rubbed form.

Grassy and straight forward

Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
So, I happen to get a tin from 2013--looks like they still have them in stock!--so I can't speak in reference to a fresh tin. The initial tin aroma was a deep, sweet, fermented hay. The smoke it self is pretty straight forward, but there is some real... Read More
Kind of boring, actually.

Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
I not going to lie, I bought a tin of this just because JRR Tolkien smoked it... however I'm not a fan. I am not normally a straight Virginia smoker and I found this to be kind of boring and bland and tasted to much like cigarettes. The whole time I'... Read More

How to review Virginia’s...? I don’t know how honestly. I love this. I think you will too. Pricey but I find myself unable to reach further into my cellar.
nice!

Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
Good tobacco, has a slight cigarette dryness to it, but a good blend all the same. I find it very satisfying when I need a smoke and this is close to hand. I have a number of go-to tobaccos and this is high on my list. I find I smoke it more often th... Read More
Good enough for C.S.Lewis!

Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
I really enjoy this tobacco and have gone through a ton of it! It just works for me - but I prefer Virginia tobacco anyway. I wish I could learn to like it less - when I have it around I smoke a tin a day! And I thought Macanudo's were expensive!
Great Stuff!

Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
This Virginia blend is great. It not overly sweet as I find Dunhill Flake to be, but its has the sweet Virginia top note. Its bold compared to similar blends. It does require a couple more relights than other VA blends, but its worth its. Decent nico... Read More

I live in a rural area and as a young man would help put up hay during the summer. If you want to know the smell/taste of a fresh mown field of hay, this is you smoke. Smooth and pleasant.

This is a very good tobacco. It is very smooth and has a nice natural flavor to it. Every time I finish it I can't wait to have another bowl!
Far Exceeded Expectations
August 05, 2013
Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
Pleasantly, but not overly sweet with a delicious matured Virginia taste. Completely bite-free. The humidity level was just-right when opened. I have no experience with previous Capstan tobaccos, but don't really need to, this is an outstanding Virg... Read More
Not much going on here, except perfection.

Product: Capstan Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
If Tolkien smoked it, that should probably be evidence enough. It's just good. It's a nice Virginia of exceptional quality. It is more on the mature side than what I expected, but that's not a bad thing. Nothing fancy at all here. Just tobacco at it'... Read More
