Black Eye Pipe Tobacco Samplers

Black Eye

When you get a black eye you probably wouldn't associate it with pipe tobacco but we figured it was pretty fitting for the next round of battles. The Black Eye battle consists of Lane BCA, a fire-cured and steamed Cavendish tobacco that can easily be smoked all day, and Peter Stokkebye's Black Cavendish, a smooth, cool-smoking blend with a super-pleasant aroma that can also be smoked all day. Both pipe tobaccos being an easy smoke makes this battle even more complex. Now we call on our P&C Faithful to help determine which is the Black Eye battle leader. At this time you can purchase both tobaccos at a low price and be able to smoke them side by side. Once you have tried them, come back and leave your review and tell us who the clear winner should be.

The Gold Standard of Aromatic Pipe Tobaccos
In my opinion this is the gold standard when it comes to aromatic tobaccos. For me keep an aromatic tobacco on hand it has to at-least be this good and most of the time they aren’t. As mentioned in other reviews, full sweet, cocoa, vanilla, and liquor flavors, and absolutely no bite. Perfect for when it’s hot outside and you want to smoke while mowing the grass, and perfect for when you want to walk out for a lunt in the snow. Last time I ordered I got 1lb and when I run out I’ll do it again. Room note is great. Wife says beard note is great. Can’t say enough good things about Lane Limited BCA. If you’re on the fence, pull the trigger!

Great mixer...adds mildness, reduces bite
I primarily use BCA as a mixer...it adds mildness and diminishes bite when mixed with other tobaccos. But occasionally, when I really need a very mild smoke, I'll smoke it straight.
5 out of 5
My main smoke...Highly recommend!
My main go to... I've never had a bad smoke with BCA. I'm new to pipe smoking, started in late 2020 and since then have accumulated more pipes than I'll ever let my wife know about. I've been trying a lot of different tobaccos and I just keep coming back to BCA. I agree with what all the reviews are saying about it being a great everyday smoke. If you're new to pipe smoking or if you've been at it for years but have never tried BCA I highly recommend it!

One of the very best.
Lane BCA is one of the very best pipe tobaccos that I’ve ever smoked it is smooth with no bite at all and the taste is spot on so if you have never tried it take my advice and try it now you want regret it.
5 out of 5
First time trying BCA
Opening the pouch, you get a nice mild aromatic smell. Easy to pack and light. Great room presence. Got many compliments. Mild taste with no tongue bite. I usually smoke Captain Black. Tried this because I read some good articles on it in P&C magazine. It was on sale, so I figured what the heck. Very good product and I am now a fan.

Best Tobacco I have ever smoked.
I have used BCA for over 40 years. It’s very mild and has a great aroma. Everyone around me enjoy the aroma and compliments me on how good it smells. Over the years I tried many other blends but always stick with BCA.

Making my personal blend
I created my personal blend of 8 oz Lane BCA mixed with 4 oz Lane Limited 1-Q. A smooth and aromatic smoke. In other words, I like it. In the retaining jar, I also have a Boveda size 60 package laying on top of the tobacco to maintain moisture control.

OK, but better as a mix.
Not a great black cavendish, but not bad. Very mild; not noticeable bite. I used it to mix with other PS tobaccos and it was much better. Still miss my favorite Lane VBC; broken-hearted that it has been discontinued. The Sutliff Black Vanilla Cavendish is not bad but it’s just not the same!

Time Travel
Like all lane blends, this packs as easy as it smokes, right out of the bag. I love it on its own with morning coffee it is a perfect match. I also have it mixed with a 50/50 1-Q and BCA blend. Another great mix I did was 50/50 plum pudding and BCA. I'm not big on aromatics but I love lane aros. This is a magical blend that probably can blend with most anything and is a perfect mild blend on its own. Also, it's best smoked in a cob. Smoking this blend can transport you back into the olden days. Smoke too much and you'll be operating steam engines up a mountain to go pick up the next shipment of logs. Nothing fancy, just classic old world flavor and a bit of magic.

A good aromatic tobacco
The aroma is not too strong I've been told and I enjoy smoking it. It is a short cut not long flakes that I found hard to keep smoke going. I enjoy this tobacco and it is my only tobacco. I never like to try other tobaccos so if I find one I like I stay with it

Lane Limited BCA Bulk, A favorite pipe tobacco of mine.
Lane Limited BCA Bulk is an excellent pipe tobacco. It has a rich, thick smoke, and is mildly sweet to the taste. It has a very pleasant aroma. It does not burn the tongue, and can be enjoyed bowl after bowl. It has a mellow vanilla taste, and if you like, can be mixed very easily with other pipe tobaccos. My favorite secret mix, that I smoke daily and often, bowl after bowl, is to mix it 50/50 with Captain Black regular. Enjoy!!!!!!

The best black cavendish.
The best black Cavendish on the market, hands down. I do wish Lane would still offer the vanilla black cavendish. There are still many, many fans of both types. Sometimes one does not want as much sweetness as in BCA. You hear me Lane?

I decided tp try this
I decided tp try this after reading of many other pipe smokers who smoke Lane BCA regularly and said good things about it. I was pleasantly surprised how well it smoked. Very flavorful. The room note is very nice. It has a mild vanilla flavor with zero tongue bite. Enjoyable any time of day. I'll make this a regular smoke.

Tasteful. Would recomend to let
Tasteful. Would recomend to let it sit in a Jar for a week once you receive it. Pulled out of the bag and smoke it for the first time was not a memorable expirience, but after sitting on the Jar it turned into an incredible aromatic.

Great for the beginner and the veteran pipe smoker!
Great all day smoke with NO tongue bite, great aroma, and, surprisingly, very decent taste for an aromatic. A lot of people use this mild blend as a mixer, but I find it very appealing as a tobacco choice on its own. May take some drying out when you first get it, but it’s as mild as can be, and very satisfying.

Perfect for the beginning pipe enthusiast!
This is the tobacco that I finally settled on to learn pipe smoking, and I would recommend it to all beginning smokers! It is mild and virtually impossible to get any tongue-bite out of it, and yet it pleases the pallet and produces a thick beautiful smoke that you can almost cut with a knife. I always keep plenty on hand as a perfect agent for blending or just a relaxing all day smoke.
5 out of 5
This is a good relaxing,
This is a good relaxing, cool, slow smoke. I would definitely recommend this to someone just starting their journey into pipe smoking. I is a great smoke by itself but also works as a catalyst in creating your own blends.

Super smooth, very neutral flavor.
Smooooth. Really smooth. Very mild flavor, to my taste almost completely neutral. I can see why this is so popular. A decent smoke on its own, but with its mild flavor it's a great base for any sort of mix you'd care to try. Good stuff.

In my top ten.
As a fairly new pipe smoker, this was one of my first blends. It hit me just right, being sweet tasting with a nice vanilla flavor and little bite. It burned pretty well after a bit of drying, and gave volumes of smoke. I am still trying new blends, but this will be in my top ten when all is said and done.

Lives Up To The Hype!
I first purchased this last year from a tobacco shop in Gatlinburg, TN because I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Wow, I was blown away! I recently ordered 6oz from P&C and, even though I have several jars of tobacco to choose from, I keep going to this almost every time. So far, it is the best aromatic I've tried and I've tried many. I will always keep some on hand.

Smooth and cool as a cucumber
Love using this for blending to sweeten up and mellow down my mixes. It is very low profile, figgy, sometimes has a slight roasted cocoa note. Gives my blends a great smooth texture with beautiful thick smoke. It's my go-to cav for blending year round. A little boring on its own, to my liking, but a very accessible tobacco for those who just want a low-key smoke or for beginners.

Great way to try tobaccos
I like both of these, I really enjoy the Stokkebye 201 Black, the Lane BCA has a stronger vanilla note. It is reminiscent of cream soda, at least to my taste buds. I prefer the Sokkebye because the tobacco flavor is more balanced. Both smell amazing when smoked, my wife doesn't mind the room note of either of these. That's a happy bonus

Excellent place to start.
Fairly new to smoking pipes and tobaccos, this was suggested as a beginning tobacco and now I can see why; nice smooth, rich flavor and pleasent room note. Pretty wet so be sure to dry it a bit before smoking, also can bite a bit if you smoke hot. Defiantly will be keeping stock in this blend.

Lane Limited BCA Tobacco
Very mild tobacco with little or no flavor. I mixed it with Granger, equal parts to give it some flavor. I also tried Lane vanilla. It was too sweet and left an after taste in my mouth. I also mixed it with Granger. I am trying different blends until I find one I like without mixing.I am going to try the chocolate blends next.

Mellow Melange
Fantastic duo of black cavendish tobaccos. Each has a very mellow aroma, I smoked some Lane BCA on its own but its not very exciting, kinda steamy with a honey taste. However, when added to an english like nightcap or EMP, thats when these tobaccos really shine. Like Robin is to Batman, these BCs are nice sidekicks to defeating the villain that is tobacco craving! To pick between the two, I'd have to say Peter Stokkebye 201 takes the cake. I enjoy the stronger vanilla flavor that it brings, and it seems to burn a bit better. Either way, both are surprisingly dry and cool smokes!

Great black cavendish with excellent taste and aroma. Never bites and is a great mixer to 'tame' some more blends that are stronger. Always compliments on the aroma, but not at the expense of a 'bitey' aromatic. It is also great by itself for a relaxing and satisfying pipe full. It's a toss up between Lane BCA and Lane Vanilla Black Cavendish. Depends if you want a little more sweetness( LVBC) or not. Can't go wrong either way.

Now I'm not quite sure if it was this or the fact that I mixed with VBC but I had such an amazing sleep after smoking! Flavor was stellar as well

Close call for Lane
Close call - both are very smooth with little bite. By a very slim margin, I prefer the Lane BCA - seems just a bit smoother. But you won't go wrong with either one. I still prefer Captain Black White as my all-time favorite.

One of the best Black Cavendish tobacco's you can buy.
So I tried this after trying CB Dark, and reading numerous reviews about the two. I LOVE CB Dark. And now I LOVE Lane BCA. After watching and reading all the reviews and trying them both myself...I actually find the two pretty much indistinguishable. Maybe I don't have a sophisticated enough palate, but I've smelled the tin notes, I've smoked them back to back. Honesty- these are the two best examples of Black Cavendish I have ever smoked! I REALLY like this tobacco. I purchase BCA by the pound. I mix it with many other tobacco's, and it always enhances the taste and makes them smoother and smoke cooler. (As an example, mix it with your favorite Cherry tobacco and see if you haven't found your favorite "new" blend)! Lane BCA and Lane RLP-6 are the two best Aromatics on the market today, in my opinion - and I love nearly all the CB brands and have them in my cellar. But pound for pound/ dollar for dollar, you just can't beat Lane BCA. Buy with confidence.

Lane BCA
BCA is a very fine and flavorfull smoke with a nice room note. It even gives an open air pleasant fragrance experienced by my neighbors when I smoke outside. It's very mild, never harsh with none of the lingering tastes on the palate that so many other tobaccos I've tried have. I highly recommend trying Lane BCA, you will not be disappointed!

Very good, an under appreciated gem
This tobacco rally shines in a good, dry cob. The topping is delightful, yet underneath is a gorgeous medium brown Virginia that starts to shine halfway through. Drying this to perfection in a way that does not weaken the topping is a challenge. Your climate’s humidity means your mileage may vary.

Best Black Cavendish around
All Black Cavendish tobaccos could take notes from BCA. The vanilla is subtle enough that you'll forget it has any, but the aroma and mouthfeel will stick with you for years. Top notch.
5 out of 5
Great Smoke!
Really great when I want a break from my first love which is non-aro Burley. Smooth with clouds of creamy smoke and no bite what so ever. I do personally feel that BCA is not the same as SP Cav in the bag however. I know, I know they are both from Lane but I find BCA smoother and I can get a slight bite from the SP Cav. NEVER from BCA.

This is the third pipe tobacco I've smoked best out of the three hands down. I really like Lane's tobaccos so far. This for me has a cream/liquor smell to it from the "tin," same with the draw, and smoke. Smokes cool if you don't push it like anything else I've smoked and burns clean I suppose. A great tobacco.

Best of the basic Black Aromatic Cavendish mixtures for my money
Lane Limited's BCA (Black Cavendish Aromatic?) is a very good tasting and smoking tabak. I was smoking a lot more of this when I first purchased it, but I personally have been gravitating away from aromatics lately and towards the non-aromatics in general. I would definitely give this a try if you have not done so already; especially, if you have been smoking the more goopy and chemically-infused, over-the-drug-store-counter type aromatic Cavendish mixtures. Lane's BCA is quality.

Lane BCA
Been smoking BCA for over 35 years. Never found anything that tastes or smokes as good! Sure it’s a bit messy, moist, and makes you keep your pipes clean. Probably why it’s so satisfying. Been buying it a P’s and C’s for over 15 years, and when a problem comes up they’ve always made it right. What else need one say...

Totally agree with the previous review title, "soff and sweet". Once it's well lit it burns well and a long time. Very mellow and delightfully sweet. Not sure why I didn't buy this for a while? It's way better than the others I've been trying. Must say I love BCA! As far as room note I think my wife's sensitive nose would really like it, but she says she can't smell it.

I've been smoking this tobacco for decades now. As a black cavendish lover, I've sampled other black cavendishes but always go back to BCA. Smooth and never bites and leaves a nice room note. It used to be a bit sweeter years ago and somehow the formula for BCA was changed slightly.

Lane BCA
Smooth, flavorful, and slow-burning, Lane Limited BC-A is a phenomenal pipe tobacco. It stays lit, has an extremely pleasing room note that all but guarantees people reminiscing about memories of their dad or grandpa smoking a pipe. Paired with a high quality briar or a simple corn cob, this is among the very best tobaccos and my absolute favorite “go-to” bowl. Do yourself a favor and buy this- you won’t regret it!

Fantastic almost dry bite-free smoke, especially when filtered.
Quite simply the finest pipe tobacco I've ever smoked. Mildly sweet, great aroma, and no bite. I smoke it using a "modified" 9mm filter pipe. Have hand-crafted a stylish wooden stem-extender that accommodates a second filter, spaced several inches from the first. The "back-pressure" between the filters allows the lower filter to literally saturate with extracted tars … that never reach my tongue. The upper filter absorbs just a little. It is re-used as the lower filter in my next pipeful. Enjoy. Tony C.

1Q and BCA
I’ve smoked 1Q for a few years, Dark Red on occasion and like them both. A person on a pipe site said that if I liked1Q, I’d really love BCA. Then he added, mix BCA and 1Q 50/50...and thank me later. So I bought a pound of each and used a half pound each to blend. And just as he said, it’s fabulous!
5 out of 5
Great for beginners and beyond.
After receiving a pipe (Baraccini Churchwarden) as a gift from my girlfriend I had no idea where to start. I knew I should start with something light, but the first few blends that I tried (Lane Very Cherry, Cult Blood Red Moon, Sutliff Van. Custard), while nice, left my tongue bitten and my mouth feeling burnt. I wasn't sure if I was doing something wrong, if my pipe was less than optimal, or if I just wasn't cut out for pipe smoking. Then I tried Lane BCA. Compared to the burley and virginia blends I'd tried before it, the smoke was much cooler and burned more evenly throughout. Thanks to Lane BCA I went from ready to call it quits, to asking for a Savinelli for my birthday. Good stuff!

Best Black Cavendish
Call it a staple or call it a go-to---this fine blend rightly deserves it's perrenial status as the most popular black cavendish on the market. Consistently cool, mild yet flavor-FULL! To me the ideal aromatic. Equally versatile straight and as a perfect foundation for blending, but I do prefer it straight. Heads up to former customers of the closed Smokin' Post, Saginaw, MI: I recently learned from Jim, the former proprietor that BCA indeed is the blend that was known 'in-shop' as Black Hawk! Mystery solved after several years of searching!

New guy approves
Cigar smoker for close to 15yrs now, and decided to give pipes a try. I ordered a handful of tobacco's and this is one of the ones I really enjoyed the most. I have not tried using this in a blend of anything else (yet), but straight... it's a good smoke.

One of the best!
Possibly the best I have tried. Good taste and smell, no bite. Might have to relight it just a little more often than ideal due to high moisture content, but for everything else you get from it that is not much hardship.

Lane BCA is Fantastic
On my third order of the Lane BCA pipe tobacco and I must say it is one of the best pipe tobacco's I've tried. It is my got to tobacco and can be mixed with anything. A really nice mellow smoke with nice aroma. Highly recommend to anyone. George W

No Bite !
One of the smoothest tobaccos I have ever smoked. Great mild taste. Highly recommend. Just wish Pipes and cigars would be more transparent about possible GMO's and pesticides in the tobacco.

Something smooth
All I can say, is that I like it a lot. Im a daily smoke and the BCA joins me on my daily travel. A good smooth lovely blend. Thanks Lanes.

One of my new favorites!
This has become one of my favorites. After buying a couple of ounces the first time, I bought 16 oz on the second purchase. Great by itself, but have even blended in some Navy Delux with it for a slight flavor change. Excellent service and friendly help on the phone when I have needed to call.

Smooth and subtle
I'm pretty new to pipe smoking, but this black cavendish is excellent. Sweet taste and nice room note, and burns cool for a smooth feel. Highly recommended. ...I've also enjoyed a 50/50 mix of this with Cornell and Diehl Autumn Morning very much.

This stuff turned me into a Black Cavendish fan. I am hooked. I liked it some much I used it to blend with a bunch of my other loose tobaccos. It improves everything I put it in.

Simply the Best
I discovered Peter Stokkebye tobacco back in the late 1970's, and have been smoking it since then. With many excellent flavours to choose from, Stokkebye tobacco is by far the mildest on the market, whether your blend of choice is rich or more neutral. Always a big fan of PS-23 (Black and Burley), I have also loved Nougat and Black Cavendish as well. There really are no bad Stokkebye blends, and I can highly recommend any of them to anyone who wants to experience the greatest pleasure a pipe can offer.

Very smooth and tasty. A coworker turned me on to a simple blend he smokes, 2 parts BCA to one part white burly. It’s a really nice mellow smoke with no bite and a hint of vanilla.

Highly recommended!!!!
I read somewhere that said it takes the average pipe smoker three years to find "their tobacco." I haven't even been smoking a pipe for two weeks yet. But if there is a better tobacco than this stuff, then I'm in for a treat as I continue searching. And if not, then I need to be reordering this tobacco. This stuff is amazing. I was blown away on how it tasted. So delightful. I smoked cigarettes for 30 years with a short cigar kick 20 years ago. I really enjoy the pipe and this stuff will definitely be stocked in my home. Thanks to all of you who have given this tobacco great reviews. It helped me to give it a try. Time for another bowl.

Great Selection
I bought 5 or 6 different black cavendish blends at the same time so I could see which one I liked. This one was very good but I didnt notice any differences between any of them so I'm sticking to Virginia Gold black cavendish.
5 out of 5
Best Black Cavendish
This is a sweet vanilla tobacco, but not overly done. I use it to mix in small amounts with strong non aromatic burleys, or hot burning Virginia’s. I don’t smoke it by itself, but I can understand why a aromatic lover would.
5 out of 5
Fabulous!
This was my first time trying this pipe tobacco and now I know why it consistently gets five star ratings. Smooth and delicious all the way through! Also for a special taste sensation try mixing BCA and Scotty’s Old Red 50/50. I think you’ll be blown away with this combo! BCA will always be a part of my stash from here on out!

A Fine Black Cavendish
This was my first experience buying tobacco online so I had no idea what to expect. The service was quick, the price very reasonable and the quality excellent. Black Cavendish is my “go to” smoke and this is as good as any I’ve tried. Excellent!

I tried everything starting with Cherry Blend, but for the last 40 years BCA has been the only tobacco I smoke. It is the perfect blend.

Lane Limited BCA bulk.
Not a seasoned pipe smoker but this is one of the best I've had. I like it better than 1Q which I really like also. Great aroma, no tongue bite, smokes extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting an easy, nice tasting and relaxing smoke. Exactly what I had in mind when I picked up the pipe.

SMOOTH SMOKE
A good all day smoke that I sometimes use BCA to temper some of my other tobaccos. I often switch between this and 1Q.

GREAT STUFF
Smooth but rich. Never bites. Toppings play well together and are never cloying. When I'm not sure which of the 6 different tobaccos in my rotation I feel like smoking, this is one I can turn to. I also use it for some blending. Can't really beat it, especially for the price offered by Pipes and Cigars. If you haven't tried this, go ahead and do it. I really don't believe you'll be sorry.

The Best Tobacco I Have Ever Found.
I searched for years for the perfect tobacco, one that smelled good and smoked good. Some years ago I found it. While I don't know what its store name was when I asked about it I found it was Lane Limited BCA. I have been buying it and smoking it now for probably forty years. My wife loves the smell as do most other people. I love the taste. It smokes well without tongue burn or bad after taste. I have recommended it to my other pipe smokers most of whom have agreed with my assessment.

Winner!
Yes, this is a refreshing, fruity and soooooo mellow blend. Your Gandalf of a blender did some great magic with this one. Keep it up guys!

My Go To!
I’m relatively new to pipe tobacco. I’ve tried a number of Lane blends and one from Ashton (smooth sailing). This is by far my favorite. Smooth, full, rich, pleasantly sweet. This is my go to tobacco.

Not meant to be...
The Lane BCA I got smelled great and was hoping for an aromatic to enjoy out of this but It just doesn't appeal to me like most on here.

It’s earned a permanent jar on the shelf
New to pipe smoking, and am working my way through blends and brands to discover what I enjoy and when. While some tobaccos lend themselves to accompanying my morning coffee and such, I find BCA to be enjoyed most as a stand-alone smoke - the subtle sweetness lingers when it’s sipped slowly and I thoroughly enjoy it. That my wife loves the room note is very welcome…..she’s polite enough to endure an English, but I’m polite enough to keep ‘em outdoors. BCA keeps us both happy.

A nice change
No bite. Burns down to a fine light ash. As a predominantly VA smoker, this is a nice change of pace for me to occasionally smoke. A real crowd pleaser for the pipe ambassador. My wife even likes it... And she absolutely hates my pioe habit :)

BCA... mild and sweet!
Let me preface by saying I love black cavendish... and Lane BCA is at the top of the list. Mild and sweet, I smoke this straight and also blended with any number of burleys. After dinner, I'll fill the bowl of my favorite cob and enjoy BCA straight for the perfect dessert. And as a treat with my morning coffee (packed into one of my briars). This is one of my "go to" all day tobaccos; five stars across the board... give it a try!
5 out of 5
Just good.
In some ways, your typical black cav...mild, heady, fragrant, etc. What I really like about BCA is that it smokes well by itself or is great as a "blender". I like mixing BCA with Very Cherry for example. To my taste, its the best black cav out there and I always have it on hand.

I found BCA to be a nice smooth smoke. My wife enjoys the aroma and let's me smoke in the house once in a while. It's cool smooth and a bit of sweetness comes through if you smoke it slow.

Order by the Pound!
Black Cavendish is THE tobacco that made me realize 3 years ago that I could drop cigarettes (after 40 years) and vaping completely, and Lane BCA is a very fine blend of such. I always invest in a pound of it whenever it goes on sale, which I'm about to do with Captain Black Dark which will be $1.50 per ounce until 9-27.

After dinner treat!
Been smoking a pipe off and on since my days in the Air Force back in the 1960's, so I have a good idea of what I like. And BCA is something I definitely like! Mild and pleasantly sweet, smokes great in a cob. This is my "after dinner dessert" along with a mug of stout. For those who prefer stronger blends, this makes an excellent adder. Highly recommended!
