Dark And Delightful
Captain Black pipe tobaccos are always a pleasure to smoke. All of the different blends are consistent in quality. If you enjoy smooth, flavorful aromatics, the Captain's blends are among the finest.

Captain Black 12oz Can
I had bought the can for a Christmas gift but the can came in dented pretty badly. I decided to keep it for myself. The tobacco is what you would expect, cool mild dark taste that packs well. Overall good but I have to find another Christmas gift for my son.

Very good Black Cavendish
If you like Black Cavendish you will love this one. My only knock on it is you can get other black Cavendish blends that are just as good for a little less. But if your at your local tobacco shop and you come across a pouch of this I would recommend that you give it a try.

perfumey and tasteless
All one tastes is a perfumed, artificial smoke.

Nice mild tobacco
A very mild tobacco with a hint of vanilla. There was no bite and burned to bottom of the bowl without a relight!

OK But Just OK.
First Captain Black Blend that I have tried other than the original. While there is nothing wrong with it, I just did got get much from it. Still prefer the Original. May or may not try some of the others, but will not order this again.

Smooth and a Nice Taste
I've been a fan of Captain Black for some time. I recently purchased the 12oz tin because of the sale. I am not disappointed. It burns fairly evenly and leaves behind a nice aroma that many enjoy. It has that classic black cavendish with, what I would say is, a nice hint of vanilla. Not top shelf, but pretty darn close.

Love this tobacco!!!!
This was my first order from P&C, and I couldn't be happier. As soon as I opened the box the sweet scent of this tobacco filled the room (the bag was still sealed). I loaded up a bowl and as soon as I lit it I could tell I had found my new favorite.

Captain Black Dark
About 38 years ago I bought my first pouch of Captain Black White and I was hooked. I have only smoked the white pouch, tried others but always came back to Captain Black white. Until last year when I bought my first pouch as part of the sample pack and that's all it took. The dark has a pleasant aroma and taste and no complaining from others around me. It will be Captain Black Dark for me from now on.

Catinan Black (Dark)
Honestly I need to sample a few more oz.'s to give a fair feedback. Unfortunately a cold disrupted my olfactory senses to truly distinguish and fully enjoy it's taste and aroma. I can say CBD is extremely mild and palate friendly. I'll touch back on a later date to review CBD more extensively. From: Nickname ( The Old Piper)

If you like black cavendish, you have to try this!! It is truly a GREAT product! I used to smoke regular Captain Black, but this is my new every day smoke. Great taste and aroma.

Hands down! Best Black Cavendish for the money.
This is by far the best Black Cavendish out there. Price is an added bonus! There are not enough O's in "smooth" to descibe how nicely this smokes. In my personal opinion this makes 1Q look overrated. The total package. Tastes great. Burns cool. If you're new to the scene and looking for a great not good Black Cavendish? Look no further. This is it.

Captain Black Dark
I am new to tobacco. I have tried and enjoyed English blends and am now branching out into aromatics. This stuff is nice. Smells like candy. Pretty wet. Let it dry. Smoke it very slowly. Just get a good light in the center of your bowl and it will treat you well. It is as the name and reviews suggest. Rich, sweet, molasses... Lingers pleasantly.

Captain Black Dark
one of the best vanilla cased black cavendish tobaccos out there! The smoke is cool, subtile, and very enjoyable. I smoke it every day. I buy it by the pound and you should too. If you want a more nutty flavor, try a 50-50 mix with Sutliff Dark Obsession. It's a great combo.

Captain Black Dark is very smooth and has excellent taste and room note. Not 'goopy' and too moist like many dark aromatic tobaccos. Excellent on its own or a compliment to any blend to add sweetness.One in a fine line of tobaccos from Lane Limited. Stays lit with minimal lighting. Price from Pipes and Cigars is very reasonable for quality tobacco, and service is EXCELLENT! An outstanding tobacco, true quality. Has subtle vanilla aroma but not over-bearing.

Customer Testimonials
What a wonderful new smoke. I have smoked Captain Black regular for many years, A definite new adventure in taste and aroma I will definitely by a tin on my next order.
Favorite Captain Black. I seem to get undertones of plum or raison. Get some you'll be happy you did.
Good smoke. Best in a large cob. Still prefer Captain Black Royal.
I have been a pipe smoker for about two years, and have tried lots of non aromatics, aromatics, and English. Captain Black Dark was one of my first tobacco, and has been one of my favorites.
A good blend by all accounts. Room note has been frequently complimented. A few things to note, first is that this is a coarser cut leaf. Still packs well but worth mentioning as it takes a little practice to pack properly. Second, this tobacco seemed to me as an almost pure aromatic blend. Almost all I could taste was what i believe to be the Casing on the tobacco (the same but stronger than that of royal). A great and very sweet vanilla flavor. Not my favorite but for aromatic lovers this can be a go to blend.
My new favorite mourning smoke, had 2 bowls this mourning, it smokes cool, nice room note, no bite at all, hope they put it in large can.
I knew I liked the Captain Black Dark but wanted to try the bulk before reviewing it. I received my 5 ounces today, loaded up and headed to the porch. The bulk is ever as good as the pouch so it can save a bundle if you order 4 ounces or more. This Dark is smooth with no bite and it burns good. It is pure pleasure!
Subtle sweetness is what I get from this blend. I will have to dry it a bit as it did not like to stay lit. But this is definitely a good solid "all day smoke" that will be one of my regulars.
I recently took advantage of the Captain Black sale to purchase some Captain Black Dark which I really like. However, the bulk version seems to not have the same flavor and aroma as the previous tobacco I purchased in the single 1.5 oz. packets.
AWESOME and fast delivery.
Was a pretty good smoke, no bite at all, will buy more of it just to have around.
I received a pouch of this in the Great Place to Start kit and this is a very enjoyable smoke. A smooth tobacco with great aroma, and my wife agrees. I have been an avid cigar smoker for 4 years (CAO, Man O War, Cohiba, and so on) and just started pipes. I'm glad I got this as one of my first pouches.
I found it very mellow and no bite at all. Good morning puff, but I find it only smokes well in my cob as the larger leaf cut tends to plug up my briars so I am constantly working it with a pipe nail. The cob gives it a very mild taste.
I agree wholeheartedly with all the above. i wish it would come in large tin.
Well I could be wrong but I think Captain Black Dark is the same as Lane BCA.. in fact I was on another web page and noticed the manufacturer of Capt Black Dark was listed as Lane Ltd. I looked at both and looked the same and smelled the same. Either way they both smoke exceptionally well. A great after dinner smoke for me.. very pleasant room note and really no bite to speak of. I think that if more beginners would start with this tobacco, we would have more pipe smokers.
Captain Black Dark is one of my favorite smoke's
So far I have tried Captain Black Cherry, Royal, and Dark. Dark is by far my favorite! It's smooth and smells great!
My new Favorite from Captain Black! It smokes very tasty and has no bite at all.
I thought Captain Black Royal was the best, but Captain Black Dark is every bit as GREAT. A delight for pipe smokers everywhere. Enjoy!
This blend is an excellent addition to the Captain Black line. So much so that the Captain should become a brevet Rear Admiral immediately. It is much touted to have a vanilla/fruit note. I, however, find that the main taste is a pancake/maple syrup note. It isn't bad, mind. In fact, it's great. It puts me in mind of the hotcakes and syrup from McDonald's. It isn't going to win any complexity or innovation awards, but that isn't what the Captain Black line is for. It's there to be consistent, tasty, and easy to smoke. This new blend holds the name up quite well.
