Just Right
I'm always amazed at the range of flavors that guys say they can taste in tobaccos. I stretch my imagination to taste what they do. Sometimes I can agree. Other times, not so much. I smoke a lot of different tobaccos, from expensive tins to cheap, bulk bags. Most of the time, my experience with each varies considerably, depending upon the time of day, how fast I smoke and even down to the size of the pipe I'm using. Captain Black original never disappoints me, There is good reason that it's been a stable for pipe smokers for 60 years. Mellow, a bit sweet and with little bite (smoke slowly), it is a great go-to tobacco when I just want to sit and relax. Nothing overpowering, just a wonderful taste of natural tobacco processed just right for an experienced smoker. Very nice with a glass of bourbon or scotch in the evening, or with a cup of joe in the morning.

I am on again off again pipe smoker, but when I am on again, I always return to Captain Black Original. If I smoke cigars, my wife strongly encourages me "to do that outside", but she loves the aroma of Captain Black Original pipe tobacco. I enjoy smoking this tobacco so it just works at our house.

Dark chocolate and drunken cherries
New pipe smoker here and this was recommended by a lot of people. Bag note I get dark chocolate and booze-soaked cherries. The smoke is sweet and I get faint hints of fruit. The room note is pleasant and it burns real smooth no bite. at the end of the bowl the fruit dies down and sweetness goes away but the smoke is still pleasant. this will be added to my buy again list as a daily smoker and is Cellar worthy.

A Consistent, and quality blend that never lets me down
I enjoy Capt'n Black, Original and Dark are the only two I have tried and the casing is the same for both, which is a liquor, vanilla-ish scent and flavor. The dark burns and smokes rather well, and the original adds some kick to the blend with the addition of VA and Burley. I will try Royal in due time, and Im sure I will enjoy it. I do not smoke alot of aro's but I always enjoy my bowl of CB, every time!

Captain Black Original has always been my fall back tobacco. It was my first tobacco that I ever smoked when I started smoking a pipe. I enjoy trying different blends of tobaccos and will always compare their taste and aroma to good old Captain Black.

Quintessential taste and aroma
Great tobacco, especially for a more "common" selection. I highly recommend this for the new smoker who is looking for a smoke that captures that stereotypical "pipe tobacco" taste and aroma.

I very much enjoy Captain
I very much enjoy Captain Black Original. The taste is very good, the smoke is cool and complete. If you prefer something sweet then it is definitely worth a try, although for the money I think there are better options. This is why it only gets 3 stars from me. In pouch form the moisture content is all over the board. I have had some that were perfect, some that were drowned in liquid, and some that were so dry it literally crumbled in my fingers. I haven't had the notion to buy a tin yet, simply because of the price. When the moisture content is right, it is a fantastic smoke. When the moisture is off though, there is definite taste of synthetic or fake flavorings. Does tend to bite a little bit if you're a heavy puffer, which I am. I believe everyone should at least try Captain Black original, because when it's right, its right. Because of the high cost and Russian roulette of moisture, it only gets 3 stars from me.

This is the tobacco that got me interested in pipes. Way back when smoking was allowed indoors a customer at a restaurant where I worked told me what he was smoking. I loved the aroma, so I remembered Captain Black. Decades later I had moved on to a variety of obscurely names tobaccos, but recently decided to return to the beginning. Captain Black is still great stuff. Not too fancy, but great.

For the new guys.
I am new to the pipe smoke arena and of the few tobaccos I have smoked, Captain Black is so far the best. I would highly recommend this blend for any new smoker. It has a wonderful room and pouch note and doesn't leave a nasty after taste.

All time favorite, reliable go-to
What more can I say than the title, this is my all-time reliable favorite tobacco, it never lets me down. Early morning, late at night, all day long... it tastes wonderful, smells wonderful (even for non-smokers) and leaves the office smelling like grandpa's workshop. Not too sweet, not too dry, not too wet - just perfect for me!

THIS IS THE BEST
OK...Here it is. Vanilla is my favorite aromatic. I've tried them all and the only one that delivers is Cap't Black original. None of the other brands that advertise vanilla are even close ! I once tried Sutliff "vanilla royale " which boasted 14 different types of vanilla . It might have been ok if they had actually put some them in the tobacco ! Instead I got a bowl of tasteless fire . After 3 bowls of this stuff over 2 days,I just dumped the bag in the trash. If you want vanilla,just buy Cap't. Black original . Don't waste your money on bland ,hot imitations.

An almost perfect all-day tobacco. It can easily become my daily regular tobacco.
A very nice, smooth all-day tobacco. Very similar to Lane 1-Q. I experienced no tongue bite with Captain Black Regular and enjoyed the whole bowl full. Recommend just "sipping" this and all tobaccos to prevent tongue bite and to savor the nuances of the tobacco. Highly recommended and available almost everywhere.

Reliably delicious..
Easy to find and always consistently tasty. Some chain stores overcharge for the stuff, but I imagine that has to do with how little they sell to the general tobacco consuming market. A dark and richly flavor without much bite and just the right amount of sweet. Not my absolute favorite smoke, but considering it's availability, price-point, and consistency -- I'd recommend this blend to any new piper.

I like the black Cavendish, vanilla and fruit undertones. Smells great within pouch, burns well, never hot and does not gurgle. It does not leave a messy bowl. It leaves a very pleasant room note.

Solid Vanilla Cavendish
Very light all day kinda smoke. The Virginia’s and burley come through the most with typical flavors of grass, hay and dried fruit while the vanilla cavendish adds a subtle sweetness to the whole mix. A very light and balanced blend. Well rounded with no rough edges. In recent years, they’ve stopped adding so much topping and humectant. Not only did it make the tobacco worse but I’m sure it was more costly to produce. The complaints people had years ago about CB being goopy and to heavily cased are long gone. If you just won’t something light and easy that won’t sit you on your arse then this is a pretty solid pick. You can gently puff on this all day with no problems. One of the few tobacs that I’ve considered buying a can of.

All day smoke

Outstanding Tobacco
Wow, I just smoked my first Captain Black Original bowl (Peterson Rhodesian 999). Outstanding aroma inside the 1.5 ounce pouch. Bowl lit up quick. Room note is outstanding, wife and daughter loved it (this is a plus in my household). No gurgles and no overheat. Retro-nasal is great and leaves a great taste in my mouth with no tongue bite. The smoke is so good that I do blow slowly so that I enjoy it again. Would I buy it again? You bet, in fact, my next tobacco purchase is going to be the 12 ounce tine. I have been smoking pipe for over a year and a half and wish I could kick myself for not trying this since day one. Pipe puffers, this is a must have.

Full Steam Ahead with the Captain
Captain Black has been denigrated for years. But it's so popular, it's become a cultural cliché. Everyone beats up on it due to over-familiarity. There's nothing wrong with CBO! There's a reason it's popular -- it's good pipe-weed. It's very affordable through P&C. I attempted to support my local smoke shop, but was stunned at the $12 an oz price tag. So I'm sticking with P&C.

Not just another drugstore blend...
Before discounting this as just another “drugstore tobacco”. You should give it a try. It’s a very good mild, sweet and tasty cavendish and burley blend. One upside is that it’s available almost anywhere, should you forget or run out of your other favorite while on the road. Lanes Quality control is amazing, easily proven with this one. The double bag packaging helps keep it fresh and at just the right moisture level. Made my list as a winner.

Not bad
It was a little more moist that what I would have liked but letting it sit out for 20-30 minuted prior to smoking helped tremendously in preventing tongue bite. It is a good starting tobacco and I enjoyed it. I thought it would have had a more distinct vanilla smell and flavor but it was still enjoyable.

Very nice readily avalible pipe tobacco.
I'm fairly new to pipe smoking and have tried to do my research. Capt Black was one of those recommended for new pipe smokers. I found it to be very nice, smooth with good flavor and aroma. Very little tongue bite. It is a good all day tobacco. I smoked it this with an MM corncob. Very happy with it and will most likely have some around. You can buy this almost anywhere.

A good solid black cavendish.
Basic Captain. It isn't my favorite Captain's blend (I prefer Gold), but the mix of black Cavendish and Burley with a good top dressing is a good smoke, and always receives favorable comments for the room note. This is currently my "toss in back pocket smoke".

Classic American pipe tobacco. It takes me back to the 1960s and 1970s. Everybody's Father and Grandfather had a pouch of Captain Black on hand because it was good, and it still is.

Good products, good prices, quick service
Captain Black Regular is my favorite everyday tobacco. Pipes and Cigars delivers what they offer with quick turnaround time, and their prices are about the best I've found.

Yes Please!
I withhold a 5 star mark because I'm so new to pipe smoking but this blend is something I believe I will fall back on regularly. From the first light I felt like..."yea...this is what good tobacco is supposed to be!" It settles nicely and gives me a feeling that I was searching for when I started smoking a pipe. I've read reviews of this product and "drugstore tobacco" is a label given. If this is what "drugstore tobacco" is....then call me a "drugstore tobacco fan!"

Nice Smell, Not So Much Flavor or Punch.
An aromatic blend with a wonderful tin note that once smoked leaves you wondering where the flavor went. This tobacco doesn't dry out, ever. I got my only pouch at the drug store within the first 2 weeks of pipe smoking, and though it was a step up from what I had been burning, it only piqued my interest in searching out blends with even better outcomes. Likely a good starter tobacco, it didn't have the nic punch I needed as a former cig smoker learning the pipe.

Nuff Said!
First time buying a product of this type, meaning not out of a local shop, yes I feel "dirty", but it is so good! Flavor with no bite and not "wet" or hard to keep lit. Nuff said!

Okay...I guess
I recently tried Captain Black Regular because I had seen some very positive reviews. My initial light wasn't that great, however. It tasted overtly medicinal for the first couple of draws. The next re-light was much better, though--a nice, subtle sweetness with a mix of the tobacco taste. But that, too, soon gave way to just a very bland tobacco. I tried another bowl about a week later with the same results--medicinal at first light, very bland finish. I tried a couple of different pipes and the results were consistently blasé. The only positives to Captain Black Regular for me was the mellowness of the blend, no tongue bite, and no scorched mouth the next morning. I don't think I would recommend this. I mean, it might do in a pinch, but I'd be inclined to purchase a different pouch of Captain Black...say, Copper, for example. Now that's a great little tobacco!

Old favorite is new favorite
I really like Captain Black regular. Tastes great, doesn't bite and I can smoke two bowls in a row if I want. P&S beat my local smoke shop by $30 on one canister so I like that as well!

Nice for a beginner.
I just started smoking a pipe. I found the Regular to be a mellow strength and room appealing tobacco. I plan on smoking this tobacco for a long time.

A pleasurable constant
I keep coming back. I'm finding this is a good "go-to" smoke for anytime. When I first tried it I thought it had too much tongue bite. And it did. Since then and a variety of taste bud stretches later I've discovered my smoking techniques affect the experience as well as blend and additives. Thus, I'm a bit more 'take-it-easy' on each bowl. Low and behold, Captain Black centered right up in my palate range. I'll still stretch about into more exotic blends, but I'm glad to have Captain Black Regular in my Go-To cellar when I just want a pleasurable smoke.

Very disappointed
Everything but the Tin I purchased was Dry ... un-smokable

Not impressed
I found it disappointing. The flavor is ok. I've smoked it in four different pipes, slow, fast and in all instances the one certainty is tongue bite.

Good choice, great price
A great go to tobacco. Easy to smoke, with a nice room note. Doesn't seem to smoke "hot," and has a decent flavour that doesn't bite.

Capt Black pipe tobacco Regular
While the taste and flavor of CBR remains mild and good, the texture of the blend has become a little courser than the past. I have smoked CBR for over 25 years and this is the first time I've spent time picking out the stems before I used the Can I purchase before the 5 pouches. I returned to the pouches in hopes this issue would nor reoccur. Will see.

Tastey
I like this stuff, I wish the pouch sealed or I had an empty tin to pour it in so I could keep some for down the road. I don't think it's anything special and I'm giving it a very low 4 - maybe even a high-3. To me it has a nice taste and "snork" (6th sense; puff out through nose). I think if it were cheaper, I would buy some occasionally but I just feel it's similar to another blend I get from local tobacconist but not quite as good and same price. Note that it's not fine-cut and stays wet so it will not burn well in a deep/narrow pipe unless you pack light and half-bowl. Do not try to dry it, the flavor is in the moisture. It exhausted a large brand new CAO block meerschaum pipe in about 10 bowls. Pretty wild. The reason for 4-stars is that in comparison to a similar-tasting blend I get from a local tobacconist, the taste is bit too mild and gets bitter too soon towards the end of the bowl. If you like this blend you should also try Town Topic.

I wanted to say thanks for my recent purchase with you. Being so limited on choices here in Afghanistan is a big disappointment. Especially, when you smoke a pipe. I received my purchase quicker than I receive packages from my family n friends. Lol. Thanks again.

Captain Black: The McDonald's of the Pipe Tobacco World.
For years, this was the only pipe tobacco I had ever tried -- only because this was the only tobacco local stores sold. Man, did I not know what I was missing. I gave up the pipe for ten years because of this wet, gooey mixture. A while back I decided to give it another try, buying one of these and a tin of Dunhill Nightcap. The Captain ended up in the garbage tin and I have since enjoyed the pipe more than I could have ever imagined.

Customer Testimonials
I like aros with a small amount of moisture, and a nice room note. I won't give CB White a bad review, but I can say, I bought a pouch to try, and I found it very dry, so mellow it hardly had any taste to it, and hard to keep lit. Could have been a bad pouch, or just overly aged on the shelf, but I say "meh". I couldn't compare it to others. Might be good for rolling cigs.
AB of Calvin, OK
I like ordering my husband's Captain Black from you!
ML of Joliet, IL
Great tobacco, nice room note, and it really is a great mix for all pipe smokers. Have tried other tobaccos, they either had a bite, or had a horrible room note. Been smoking this brand for a long time, and always get compliments on how well the aroma is, especially from non smokers. The price from P&C is very reasonable and the service is top notch. Keep up the great work P&C !!
RH of Melbourne, FL
Excellent pipe tobacco. This is my daily smoke for the last 40 years. Great taste, no bite, great aroma.
SR of Temple, TX
Captain Black regular is a smooth tasting tobacco with a room note everyone likes. Also one of my stand bye's. Recommend this product highly to anyone .
KF of Clarendon, NC
I've tried, and liked, many different tobaccos, this is my steady favorite. Mild but flavorful, never bites, never tastes bitter - always just the perfect combination of mildness and flavor. Of all the tobaccos I've smoked, for room note none have received the praise of others like Captain Black White. And all day smoke.
MB of Boynton Beach, FL
Smooth and tastey, thank you
HS of Brooklyn, NY
Having tried many other brands, I keep coming back to Captain Black.
T of Sun City Center, FL
Very smooth, cool smoke. I set it out for a good 15-20 minutes to dry a little, but a good smoke all around.
KH of Woodbridge, VA
Pouch Note is great, potent though. Dried out a bit, it burns just fine, taste is really mild as is the room note. I do believe Lane has changed this, and I can't wait to try 1Q to see if its like the Captain I remember. I would buy it again because it is Captain Black-just something I grew up seeing and smelling, and it still has that essential feel to it.
MM of Whittier, CA
I've recently placed my second order of Captain Black in bulk from Pipes and Cigars, and was very pleased with my first order. Such a great tasting and smelling tobacco, it's no wonder it's one of the most popular in the world. Great Service, Fast Shipping, an overall great experience.
JV of Owensboro, KY
I just received my purchase of Captain Black regular (pouch). Fast shipping! I immediately sat down loaded my pipe and lit up! There was no bite at all and the smoke was very mild. My neighborhood tobacco shop sells 1.5 oz of tobacco (not CB) for $14.95....and my God does it bite! Thank you :)
AR of Jacksonville, FL
I wanted to hate it. I was told to hate it. I liked it. That about sums it all up. I love aromatics and have tried dozens from numerous companies and tobacconists across the country. True, it is not a complex and luxurious blend, but when you want a simple, sweet vanilla smoke, this definitely hits the spot. I love supporting brick and mortar shops, but I'll always have a secret stash of Captain Black.
HS of Fayetteville, PA
I have been smoking Captain Black for several years. This order is the freshest I have ever got.
JW of Clinton Township, MI
Not the same as it was 30 years ago. Lane rlp6 is closer to the original recipe. Used to be a rum and vanilla flavor, now is more vanilla. Quality has gone down, its like smoking cardboard and sugar!
TS of Folsom, PA
Been smokin' Capt. Black regular goin' on 30 years. non-offensive aroma(people I know love to smell it cookin' in my pipe(like Mom's apple pie with hint of cherry vanilla aroma). Doesn't bite the tongue, and the flavor when smoking, after 30 yrs. is still robust, clean, and totally satisfying!!!! I love to just smell unburned, fresh Cap. Blk regular!!!!
MS of lake butler, FL
Wonderful, glad to be shopping with you! Saved me 1/2 off from the local store which is not carrying the product any longer. Thanks

BE of Crescent City, FL
This is my favorite pipe tobacco from all of the brands that I've tried so far. I really recommend this one. It's a very nice, smooth smoke. Will definitely be buying much more!!!
JW of Girard, KS
This was the first pipe tobacco I have ever tried. And truthfully, it's not bad. Good aroma, decent taste. I do have a couple gripes about it though. And it is all due to the same central problem. Humectant. The humectant makes it hard to keep lit, makes it burn VERY hot, and has lots of tongue bite. If you let this dry out on a paper towel for a LONG while, it is a much more pleasant smoke.
PH of Deer Park, NY
I'm new to pipe smoking and I thought only the good tobaccos come in tins. Well I was wrong. Captain Black is some of the best pipe tobacco out there! I guess that's why it's the best selling brand in the country. CB original is great! Nice and smooth with very little bite. CB Dark is still my #1 pouch type, but this original is #2.
BW of Pomona, CA
Excellent pipe tobacco. I have been smoking it for years and P&C bulk is every bit as good as I get in a can.
JG of Stockton, NJ
I love captain black this pipe tobbacco smokes cool burns even and the flavor is Devine I would recommend this tobbacco to beginners and veterans alike.
KJ of Aiea, HI
Captain Black White is a mellow, pleasant smoke that just about everyone can enjoy. I'm not much of an Aro fan myself, preferring 'Engligh' blends, but I still enjoy the Cap'n from time to time. It's a great tobacco to enjoy when you will be around people that typically do not like tobacco smoke - they will all, to a person, comment on how good the Room Note is.
RR of STREET, MD
This was one of my grandfathers top choices before he died. I've finally gotten the chance to try it, i'ts fantastic.
BM of Coconut Creek, FL
I'm very pleased with the mildness and aroma of Captain Black White. pleasant smoking with no bite. This tobacco is not harsh. I've tried many aromatic black Cavendish tobaccos, they all state mild with no bite. I found that they did have a bite and burn quite hot. I've been smoking a pipe for 40 years. I happy I found "Pipes and Cigars", they have the best prices. They have fast shipping and are very professional. They also have beautiful pipes. Thank you, "Pipes and Cigars".
KP of North Providence, RI
Captain Black Regular tastes great and has a pleasant aromatic smoke. Have been smoking it for almost 30 years and can attest to why it is among the most popular pipe tobaccos. I have been ordering from Pipes & Cigars for several years and am very pleased with their services.
