This is my everyday all day smoke. Love the flavor and the room note is second to none!
A "blue collar" blend

Product: Captain Black Original 1.5oz
This was the blend that convinced me to reconsider my aversion to aromatic blends. This blend has several things going for it from start to finish: it has consistently (a) lit with only a char light, (b) burned coolly in all kinds of winds and weathe... Read More

Classic, good OTC

Product: Captain Black Original 1.5oz
I like it. It's my regular "go to" pipe tobacco. It's reasonably priced and doesn't pretend to be something it's not. Smokes easy and it's mild. It doesn't offend non-smokers in the room. It's a classic, aromatic OTC that I enjoy regularly.... Read More

Chemical aroma. Sweet and fruity. Taste is mild sweetness for the first half of a bowl. Hot air and low quality tobacco for the rest of the smoke. Not recommended.
Best everywhere tobacco

In my opinion one of the best OTC pipe tobaccos. It is aromatic and slightly sweet but doesn't push it in your face. Room note is pleasing and is a consistently good smoke from pouch to pouch. This is in my regular tobacco rotation and my go to tobac... Read More

Smoking pipes.com has great service and a ton of product. Captain black is easy to smoke. Try retrohaling this one you’ll notice the sweetness in it that I do crave. Was able to just load my pipe and smoke.
One of my favorite aromatics!

Product: Captain Black Original 1.5oz
This one stays in my rotation! When I want a pleasant smelling tobacco without tongue bite, this is the one for me. Don't be afraid of the Captain because it is OTC! It is great!
Good tobacco

This is very good tobacco for an over the counter blend. Has a very nice flavor. I think it is a little expensive for the type of blend it is.
Mild, lady pleasing aroma!

Well behaved and the warm sugar, vanilla, light caramel flavour is consistent from start to finish. The tobacco is of decent quality and has character of its own. I feel like the view people have of this blend being a cheap tobacco is unwarranted-... Read More

Decent but a bit plain

Product: Captain Black Original 1.5oz
A nice intro to pipe smoking for the uninitiated as it isn't picky about how it is packed or lit. Lots of positive comments from mixed company about the aroma.

Captain Black can certainly be a point of contention between fellow pipe smokers - people either seem to love it or absolutely despise it. I happen to enjoy it myself and have for almost twenty years now. No, it’s not fancy. Yes, it will bite new smo... Read More

This is a great everyday tobacco. It's smooth, great aroma that keeps those around me happy, and a bit of flavor. Original is my favorite of the Captain Black brand.

This is one of my favorite Captain Black blends. Burns well, tastes smooth and has a complimentary aroma. It's always in my rotation. Never harsh or intolerable, and no plain like other tobacco blends.

Captain Black Original is actually a good smoke, just pack the bowl a little loosely and it will be smooth. Tastes good, vanilla and room note is nice.

A Good OTC Tobacco
February 14, 2015
Product: Captain Black Original 1.5oz
Although the room note is quite a reminder of old pipe smokers when I was young, it is a good smoke for its price. I enjoy it although I prefer way more the 7 Seas Regular blend.
Sufficient

Good taste, cheap tobacco. It's more a beginner tobacco. Preferred the gold one. The room is more acid.

Great tasting tobacco a little stronger than the Captain Black mild , definitely an every day smoke for some. Great change of pace from the more serious tobaccos out there.

Bitey and Unpleasant

Product: Captain Black Original 1.5oz
This tobacco needs to be smoked incredibly slowly. Any amount of puffing and the taste becomes incredibly unpleasant. If you can control yourself to puff no more than once every 20-30 seconds it's an alright vanilla taste, though bland. Otherwise it'... Read More
