I have just found it a lot cheaper on another site!
I have been ordering this for my son-in-law for several months, but I have found another site on the net where it is a lot cheaper. I have tried to use priority codes, but they are never accepted for a discount. I always get Captain Black Royal, so if there is a further discount, please let me know. Your product & delivery have always satisfied us.

Smooth
Captain Black Royal is my favorite of the Captain Black blends. Smooth, no bite, tastes good, smells good. One of my most often smoked blends.

Love this stuff!
For what ever reason, I always gravitate back to CB Royal or CB Original, both are mild, deliciously aromatic with no bite. My favorites!

It's my go-to everyday smoke.
I got this as a part of a Capt. Black sampler deal, never had tried it before. I had a break at my local VA hospital and stepped outside to their designated smoking area. It's still kinda the military, hurry up and wait! A lady (Vet/spouse/worker, I don't know) was passing by and said out loud "Mmmmm, that smells so good." I don't know if it triggered a memory for her or what. The point is that a random somebody else didn't find it unpleasant and I was enjoying it also. I just bought a can of it. It's my go-to everyday smoke. I enjoy it, others appear to not be offended by it, and it's at a reasonable price.

Love my new Shop!
Fast delivery, great communication, Fab Price!!! I think I found my new shop! So happy I don't know what to say. I used to purchase the 1.5 oz packs from local shops. Not even close to the freshness I got from opening my 12 oz tin. Thank you guys! Cheers!!!!!

Captain Jack
I have smoked Captain Jack for 49 years. For me it is the only aromatic that smokes mild, yet has a pleasant aroma that others nearby find pleasing. Great pipe tobacco! ^_^

Great prices fast delivery
Because of the recent tobacco laws in Quebec my husband wasn't able to find the type of pipe tobacco he usually smoked. So I was able to order it off your site and have it delivered to the states. It was easy to bring across the border and it ended up being half the price of what it would've cost me in Quebec

Preferred over Captain Black Regular and Gold
The regular is a little too mild and the gold a bit spicier than the royal ... royal is definitely an all-day smoke.

Captain Black Royal, well now let me tell you....
New to pipe smoking, (was a non smoker for 40 plus years), so ALL of this is new terf. After I found out that C.B. was made by Lane, (I had been trying the 1Q at this time), and having a pack of C.B. White, AND that the Royal was close to 1 Q, I'd try it. It's close, not quite, but, who is splitting tobacco hairs! My pack was a bit moist, but forgetting to fold it back up cured that! Would I buy it again, sure, If I couldn't get 1 Q, or as something a bit different. Joe Remember- take any advice I give with a can of beer er 2!

Captain Black Royal
Of all the tobaccos I've tried I seem to always go back to Captain Black Royal. It's the mildest I've tried and the most consistent. Blends by Lane are also good but haven't found the right blend yet.

American Spirit Tobacco is Dead to me now.
Based on the reviews I read here, and some video reviews on YouTube I thought I would try this out, and Captain Black Royal did not disappoint. I used American Spirit for a long time, and finally decided to look for something unique. I'm not a pipe smoker per se, although, I use an 8in Rosewood cigarette holder, and am probably not to far removed from the practice. I do make my own clove cigarettes, and Captain Black Royal is the perfect companion. The hint of Chocolate, and light Vanilla from Captain Black Royal is delightful, and smooth. The difference in the quality between the two tobacco's is instantly recognized, and I'm not going back. Thank you all for the reviews here as the insight and experience really helped. My hats off to Pipes and Cigars as well, you have won a new loyal customer. Looking forward to trying other brands as well.

Awesome stuff!
Currently I'm deployed Afghanistan and I appreciate the speedy delivery of your fine product. I cannot begin to convey my gratitude of the timely delivery, most things take up to a month or more to get to us out here. I have shared your product with all the brothers out here with a pipe and they enjoy it very much. It's almost a taste of home getting to sit around a fire pit and smoke a bit of the tobacco and chat about stories and whatnot. For those few minutes that we all get maybe once a week to relax and smoke your product gets us back to a home setting and we forget that we are deployed. Thank you very much.

A Great smoke!!
This a special blend that will satisfy even the most demanding smoker. Smooth as silk, and yet plenty of robust flavor. It's a real winner at twice the price. Try it...you won't be disappointed !!!

Royal Smoke
Nice smooth and mellow smoke. Has a nice mild nutty taste with a sweet finish. Doesn't bite your tongue at all...even towards the end of the bowl.

Pleasant Smoke
Have been enjoying Captain Black Royal for over 15 years, burns clean, no bite, and very pleasant aroma. Enjoy white as well, and am looking forward to trying some of the newer tin varieties, as well as copper that I will be ordering from P&C, since they are not available in this area.

Customer Testimonials
This is a smooth, mild aromatic smoke and I was happy with it. Not overly sweet at all. It's just right! Pouch note is superb. Had a bit of trouble keeping it lit out of the pouch...likely a bit damp. Suggest drying it out before filling your bowl. I had no tongue bite, perhaps because I tend to sip my pipe (years of smoking aromatics have taught me that). All in all, an excellent value for the money.
An excellent all-around tobacco. Great for every occasion
A very smooth smoke. It tastes a bit like Irish Cream.
Still my favorite. I like a mild smoke with no bite and Captain Black Royal delivers every time.
A few months ago, this became my first ever pipe tobacco. It has a great, although slightly alcoholic, smell in the tin. The room note is pleasing to me and those around me. The taste is a nice sweetness with a rich vanilla flavor. Really a great tobacco. While I definitely recommend this tobacco, I do not believe this makes for a good first tobacco. The reason is that it tries to give you tongue bite without much remorse. Most of the other tobaccos I have tried since are a lot more forgiving on that front. I no longer have a tongue bite issue but, to this day, when I smoke this blend I feel it threatening me a little... letting me know that it's not going to be as nice to me as other tobaccos are if I get careless. Still, once again, great tobacco.
Typical of CB, nice pouch note, nice room note. The pouch I bought was not overly moist. Nice burn with few relights. No bite, like CB Original can. Nice taste, a little mild.
To me this is the best OTC blend there is! If you want a rich vanilla taste that is actually present look no further. I won't touch CB White but this stuff is awesome! You really cant get enough of CB Royal.
This was my first pipe tobacco I bought for my churchwarden pipe. It took me a day or two to get used to the style, but once I did, it was very enjoyable. I picked up a few cigars I used to smoke prior to, and honestly, I think this tobacco and pipe smoking in general has ruined me for cigars lol.
I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT. I daydream about it while I'm at work. Great room note, wonderful taste.
All around good tobacco. What I started on and it always is a pleasure to smoke.
Definitely my favorite of the Captain black blends. Spicy, smooth, and smokey. I have the same issues with this as I did with Captain Black White though. Humectant. It makes it hard to keep lit, Burns hot, and lots of tongue bite. Let it dry out for a long while and it will be one of the best OTC blends you will have.
the reason I will continue as a return customer is the personal touch I got when buying from yall.....yes yall im from Louisiana lol....it wasn't 3 min. after I made a purchase I got a call. and yall also have the tobacco I love,maybe i'll get a pipe soon mine is a little old.tyvm for being the store with a soul. Danny edwards
A friend of mine gave me the latter part of his pouch of Captain Black Royal to sample. While, I didn't absolutely hate this blend I didn't love it either. There's a sort of perfume-y flavor to this blend that I couldn't get past. Actually, I couldn't tell if it was perfume or marshmallow. It's definitely not similar to Lane 1-Q which I noticed that some other reviewer mentioned, as it lacks the element of a cigar flavor that 1-Q seems to have at least on my palette. I smoked a single bowl of this, and it was enough for me to realize that i wouldn't want to smoke anymore of it. It smells great in the pouch, but in the bowl it's as if you've set a bottle of perfume alight and are trying to roast a marshmallow. If you like how that sounds, then this is probably the blend you're looking for, but if you're looking for the same steadiness that Lane 1-Q or Captain Black White present in their flavor pallet, you'll want to keep looking for another blend. In conclusion, it's a sweet flavor with a very overpowering almost floral perfume sweetness, it has none of the cigarish flavor of Captain Black White or Lane 1-Q, if you don't like a sweet tobacco, if you don't like a highly floral tasting tobacco, then this probably isn't something you'll enjoy.
This tobacco was one of the first i ever smoked when i first picked up a pipe. So when i want a guranted smoke that will sastisfy i will always go back to captin black.
This was one of my first tobaccos that I have tried, and I have to say I am a fan. It has a very nice, mellow tobacco flavor with just the slightest hint of a sweetness (though I wouldn't call it "sweet"). There's not too specific of a flavor, so I think anyone can enjoy it. I would recommend it for anyone starting to smoke or even if you just want that straight up chill tobacco flavor. Very nice.
I stayed away from this blend for some time, assuming that it would be horrible. Up until recently, I'd seen it sold at drug stores all my life. And most of the OTC blends I've tried, I have not liked. Well, I bought an ounce of this stuff...and imagine my surprise when it immediately reminded me of one of my favorite bulk blends - Lane's 1-Q! After a bit of digging online, I find that many believe this to be VERY similar to 1-Q, if not exactly the same blend. I can't say for certain it's exactly the same, but I can tell you that I've smelled both in separate containers over and over, and can't tell the difference in aroma. I've looked at them side-by-side, and they look the same to me. I've smoked 'em both, and they seem the same to me! So much so, that I dumped my Captain Black on top of my 1-Q, and labeled the Mason Jar "Capt Black Royal/Lane 1-Q - Same." I can't even look into the jar and see where one begins and the other ends. "Well, that's all interesting, Mr. Gray, but what are your conclusions?" I would say, it's great! Try it! BUT...if you find you really like it (like I do), just buy the 1-Q in bulk. It's cheaper. And you can call it Captain Black if you want to. Heck, buy a bulk ounce of each and try it for yourself.
