Captian Black Dark
I like it nice aroma and taste I think.

Capt. Black Dark
I've enjoyed this tobacco very much. I can't be sure but it seems like Lane BCA with a little disguise! I smoke it alone and mixed half and half with 1Q. I enjoy it both ways very much. I'll likely always have the Capt Black Dark around.

Fantastic! Some of the best Black Cavendish I've ever smoked. Easy lighting with a delightful aroma and no bite.

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.

This is my go to otc blend.
I started smoking pipe with Capt Black white and loved it, When I lit my first bowl of dark it was love at first puff. Great flavor with no bite all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. I highly recommend this blend

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.

It's Ok
Standard black cavendish. It's not as good as Hearth & Home's Mohawk River, which was discontinued.

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)

CPR. Black Dark
This tobacco has more of what Capt.Black original has. More richer bite free taste and a drier smoke.

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.

for Black Cavendish fans
If you love Black Cavendish, as I do, you'll love Captain Black Dark! It's the only blend other than the original Captain Black (in the white pouch) that I smoke. Very smooth and satisfying.

Buying the 12 oz can next time!
This stuff is smooth, great flavor, cool smoke and a great room note. It is hard to pick which Captain Black flavor I like more, Regular, Royal, or Dark.

Best Capt. Black Yet!
My new favorite! True to description it has a mild dark fruit and chocolate taste on top-taste and after-taste with a silky thick smoke that's still mild. As always P&C always gets the order right and it always arrives on time in good order! I'm a customer from California and P&C is the only tobacconist I shop with!

CAPTAIN BLACK DARK PIPE TOBACCO THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD. ONLY ONE I USE........USED MANY OTHERS BEFORE
SINCE I FIRST TRIED CAPTAIN BLACK DARK I WAS SOLD BIG TIME. SMOOTH RICH FLAVOR DOES NOT BITE MY TONGUE EVEN IN THE OLD KNOCK OFF PIPES I USE MOST ALL THE TIME. THIS IS THE ONLY PIPE TOBACCO I USE NOW & HAVE NOT FOUND ANY THAT MATCH IT. SO CAPTAIN BLACK DARK IS MY ONE & ONLY. I'VE TRIED A LOT OF OTHER'S IN THE PAST...I URGE ALL PIPE SMOKERS TO GIVE IT A TRY........THE PRICE IS RIGHT ON ALSO...WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR IN A PIPE TOBACCO.....?????????

Pretty decent over-the-counter black cavendish
This is a nice, straight black cavendish that has no particular added flavor, at least to my palate. It smokes very well in general, but seems a bit on the moist side straight out of the bag (which is not uncommon with any tobacco, really.) If you don't let it dry for a bit before smoking it can gurgle near the end of the bowl. Flavor and strength are quite mild (a bit more body than Captain Black regular), the pouch note is very sweet and strong, the room note is spectacular and lingers for some time. A can't get this to bite unless I seriously try hard (and why would you do something like that?) but it can be a bit odd tasting if smoked hard, chemically I suppose is the closest thing that I can come up with. Hard smoking can also make the room note and flavor turn cigar-ish (the way cigars smell when smoked by someone else, if you will), however this is far less likely the more carefully it is smoked. Like many all-black cavendishes, this can be somewhat fine and if you draw firmly rather than sipping you can get some flecks in your mouth if you are not using a stinger or filter. Because of the fine cut, it appears to be a smaller volume than fluffier blends, so it won't take up a lot of jar space compared to the same weight of another blend. For reference, my favorite (so far) all black cavendish is C&D Black Spice, which shares most of these characteristics, but which I feel has a nicer flavor.

It was pretty Ok
I usually get Royal, and I actually ordered this on accident. It wasn't too bad of an accident as it is a pretty ok smoke.

Excellent!
Captain Black Regular used to be my favorite. No longer.... Captain Black Dark has taken its place! Wonderful aroma -- tasty!

black Cavendish is probably my most "go to" blend. Captain Black Dark is fantastic. A good room note. full bodied and not spicy.

Prompt Shipment of a great product
The Captain Black Dark was shipped and received very quickly. The bulk is good quality. Obviously the same as the individual packs/cans from the manufacturer. Very good tobacco, my favorite.

CB Dark
Always being a fan of the Captain, I had to get some of this. I ordered 3 ounces and have almost gone through all of it. It's a more full-bodied than the other blends, and it has a great taste. I would definitely recommend for any smoker.

A winner for sure!
Very nice and smooth all-day smoking tobacco.

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.

RSchmidt- Waukesha,WI
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.
