Captain Black Gold

Captain Black Gold is the lightest in flavor of the series. It is a straight golden Virginia Cavendish with a light and smooth aroma and taste that is never overwhelming. The cut helps it to pack perfectly and stay lit easily, and it mixes well with other tobaccos.

Captain Black Gold
Not quite as aromatic as the other excellent Captain Black blends but a very "sweet" and mild smoke, good any time. Finely shredded golden burley which packs nicely and burns evenly with virtually no stems/twigs. I buy in bulk so it takes some months to go through my supply. Won't be getting tired of this one but will probably go back to CB regular when it's time to re-order as I enjoy a little variety.

Mild & Full of Flavor
Been ordering Capt Black Gold from Pipes & Cigars for years. Why? 1. Best "in-stock" around. 2. Fresh 3. Free shipping* Ever since my supply line dried up around here and I found Pipes & Cigars on the web, I've been a loyal customer. Should have gone there earlier ... cheaper! Will be with y'all until "the powers that be" decide No One will enjoy a good smoke!

Prompt Service
As always, I receive 2-3 day delivery of the requested product(s). NOTE: Through no fault of P&C, Captain Black tobacco has been rather inconsistent in its quality, flavor and aroma recently. Stems and other unidentified pieces abound in the mixture and create awful odors when burned.

I have been ordering form Pipes & Cigars for couple of years now. A friend put me onto your site. I have ordered pipe tobacco, pipes, pipe packers, I normally order 4 cans of Capt Black Gold a month. I have never been disappointed in the quality, price, and service. I always enjoy the special sales you have from time to time.

I'm very happy with your service, nobody sells the bulk tabacco which i'm buying at such good price. When you will have Kaywoodie drinkless pipes in stock again? I miss them

Absolutely marvelous. It's hard to even classify it as an aromatic because it's so smooth and smokes so dry. No bite, great room note and honey-sweet flavor. Don't listen to the blue bloods, they're never impressed by anything that's cheap and stocked at Wally World. Jump in with both feet and get a tub. This is my new all-day smoke. I've never tasted gold, but I bet it tastes like this! Happy Smokes

Captain Black Gold by the ounce.
I've been ordering Captain Black Gold in bulk form for many, many years now. I always buy 80 ounces at the time and enjoy a true smoking pleasure. This online ordering for me work out just great.

My review of Captain Black Pipe Tobacco and Pipes & Cigars site.
The product is awesome- always so fresh! Your site is beautiful and easy to navigate. I really appreciate having the product delivered as I do before noon and it is always on time. The reason we started getting the tobacco online is because our CVS store stopped selling tobacco products. Not only is it convenient to purchase online but it is not even more expensive-about the same price overall with shipping so we are just delighted to have found you! Thank you, Sincerely, Gloria & John

Lesser known advantages of bulk buying
As I have been using Captain Black Gold for more years than I care to admit, the opportunity of buying in larger bulk lots not only saves money, but allows proper storage to maintain freshness. Buying the small packages previously available was always a gamble - they could have dried out before purchase. The "old squeeze" test for freshness was not reliable. Now I have fresh tobacco for every fill. Thanks for thinks "big" guys!

Captain Black Gold
Not too bad a choice but next time I'll go back to Captain Black Royal it has more taste and less bite. Prices for bulk are great.

Customer Testimonials
This is really good! The more I smoked it the better it gets. I'm really glad I decided to give it a try. Cool burning, No Bite Great taste, burns through on one good light. I tried Captain Black Black Sea and Captain Black Royal, that I really like so I'm trying the Gold! This blend has a real tobacco taste. A very good all-day smoke! I going to start buying a lot more of it. It is a good blend for anyone!
By itself, it seems to be a bit weak. It doesn't have much flavor, but I could see this being an awesome blender!
Your servise is great I enjoy my captain black -gold-thanks. I missed the promotions to get a couple pipes,if you put in I will be more happy to give them as a gift for fathers day, thanks again.
A couple of months I ordered my husband a 4-tin sampler pack of pipe tobacco. Today he drove all over town looking for Captain Black Gold, his favorite brand. He tried to smoke the brands I bought, but did not like any of them. So right now I am ordering 2 lbs of Captain Black and hope it gets here real sooooon! Question: What do we do with the four cans he doesn't like?
Captain Black gold is the perfect pipe tobacco. It's full-flavored with a smooth finish. Smells great too (says my wife). Everywhere I go, people stop and ask me what type of tobacco I'm smoking because they either want to try it or want a loved one or friend to try it. Some people say it smells like hot chocolate,some say it smells like vanilla. And you can't beat the bulk price from
I have tried captian black orginal, royal, and gold out of these three gold is my least favorite. I recomend if you try captian black to try the other flavors not this one.
I've tried all the Captain Black blends (except Round Taste) and I would have to say this one is the least aromatic. It smells nice and tastes okay, but Dark and Original are still my favorites.
I have smoked Captain Black Gold for over thirty years and I occasionally switch to another brand. But most other brands sold in pouches are harsh and dry, even filled with sticks and debris. So, I find myself time and again, coming back to enjoy the soft, smooth cut of CBG, which tamps evenly and burns slowly. It remains my all time favorite of pouched tobaccos.
As always P&C comes through with quality tobacco & Service Thank You
