Best all around every day
I've been through most of the tobacco's over the years and this always comes back to the front. It's the best. Whether it's for a relaxing smoke at the end of the day, walking around a junk yard all day, or anything else it will never disappoint. It had a small bite that matches up perfect to a glass of wine or even a cranberry/apple cider. Perfect. It's not overly aromatic like the fru fru but is very well balanced and has a great room note as well as a nice beard note.

Bite !
It was a nice even smoke ,but it had a bit of a bite.which turned me off. I have been smoking Capt. Black Original with no bite at all,so I'm going back. But all in all I know others who love it ! You may love it too,it can't hurt to try it.

Not Bad
This was actually my first ever pipe tobacco I ever tried. I gave it another go again recently so I could be objective. It is very smooth and has no tongue bite, big plus. All you really taste when you smoke it is the strong casing. Sort of like a sweet vanilla milkshake. The room note was very pleasant. All that said, it is an OTC and I’m not an everyday smoker so I like the nicer pricier blends. But if you are on a budget or an every day pipe smoker you could certainly do worse.

Struck out.
Was in a pinch and purchased this at a local store. I was hoping it would have some aromatic flavor. It did not. It did have a slight pouch note, perhaps a whiff of vanilla. However when smoked it had nothing but the taste of grass. To be more specific it tasted like moss. Totally one dimension with one taste. Even the retro hit was nasty. This is not for those who want a real aromatic or those who desire some hint of flavor in their tobacco besides grass.

Good anytime...
Missing the fine edge that is present in more expensive blends but still a very good smoke. A good change of pace that’s easy to pack, light and smoke to the bottom. A classic American blend that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Venerable old timer...smoke with respect...
Nice change of pace from more robust and pricier blends. Easy light, easy to smoke and keep lit. Tasty but mild.not overwhelmingly aromatic...just very pleasant...she says it’s OK. There’s a good reason it’s been a marker mainstay for so long...besides, didn’t Sir Walter sort of start the tobacco thing.

Not really a pouch smoker, but I was pleasantly surprised by this. A lot of nice flavors going on that blended well together and made for a quite enjoyable smoking experience.

Copper is good stuff.....
Good stuff, nice room note, like the taste, not overpowering, no bite. I have more expensive tobacco's, but this is a nice all day smoke for an aromatic. My favorite of the Captain Black line, I liked it so well I ordered some in bulk. Give it a try.

Decent anytime tobacco
This was a good OTC easy smoke for anytime of the day. A quick break or just to pass the time, with a pretty pleasant room note that won't offend anyone.

Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic is on the mark, a good all day tobacco you can smoke with no bite. The mild but aromatic tobacco is enjoyed by all who smoke.

One of the best of the pouches
With all respect to the higher echelon of tins and blends, Captain Black products are a worthy substitute. Copper is fairly recent and second only to Dark, in my mind, as best. Great as the constant brand for friends.

Captain Black Copper
I have been a fan of the various Captain Black pouch tobaccos. Copper is a nice mellow, slightly sweet but not as sweet as the other more predominate Black Cavendish blends (CB Original, Royal and Dark). Copper is lighter and nice way to mix things up when you need a break from your regular smoke.

This newbie approves!
I'm new to the pipe smoking world, and I've only tried four or five different tobaccos. I'm hardly an expert, but I've gotta say: out of all the ones I've tried, this is easily my favorite. I could smoke it all day!

Almost too mild
A nice lighter change up, but I prefer more full-bodied blends. Certainly not a bad smoke, would be a great starting place for someone new to pipes. Pro: the wife said the smoke didn’t ‘stink’! Con: that’s because the flavor isn’t very complex.

Price of an OTC but smokes like a Premium
I love this tobacco. For a working man's smoke this one is so close to perfect that you could smoke it all day in the shop or just relaxing after work in your recliner. Opening the pouch you get a nice little note of almost a grapy leaf smell. This was by far one of the easiest to light tobaccos I have tried this year. Easy to char and easy to keep an ember without having to feel like you are breathing a wind tunnel through your pipe. I'll definitely be ordering a pouch or two of this one for the shop every month to keep on hand along with the premium tins. So if you are wondering whether or not to order this one I say give it a try you might just like it as much as I do and make it a staple for OTC tobacco to keep on hand.

Very Smooth.
This is the first time I've tried any CB products and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. It is indeed very smooth. No bite, lights well, smokes evenly. I didn't notice any "taste", but it's a very enjoyable smoke. I'll be trying more from the famous Captain Black.

A Working Mans Shop Tobacco for Sure
I have tried this tobacco in two different pipes and the result is the same in both. When lit you get a nice bloom of smoke and smooth flavor of the tobacco itself. The flavor itself reminds me of the smell that you get when you drop in a fine tobacco shop, woodsy with a little hint of liquor. Though I would not say as strong as brandy but more of a cognac, the type that you can sip all day and never be unsatisfied. Overall I really, really enjoy this one for a everyday working smoke but not one of those that you would use winding down at the end of the day. Goes great with coffee though.

Nice everyday smoke
This was my first experience with Air Walter Aromatic and I was really happy with it. Nice arkma, unlike a lot of Cavendish aromatics it had some depth and body to it without any tongue bite. All in all a great everyday smoke and one I will visit regularly.

Great tobacco- unchanged!
SWR Aromatic is just about my favorite drug store tobacco. Brings back happy memories whenever I open up the pouch. Sweet, mild and great flavor and aroma. This one, and the return of Amphora have made me extremely happy! So glad I found Pipesandcigars.com!

An overall pleasure to smoke with a great taste and a very pleasant room note.
Been smoking pipe infrequently for 10+ years but recently started to get more versed in the quality and types of tobacco. Ordered a few blends that have stood the test of time. This one was one that I immediately enjoyed from the pouch note to the end of the bowl! The nose on this is of brown sugar with cocoa and the fruity liqueur used in the casing. Taste includes chocolate, some vanilla and I tasted some sweet orange. Surprised at the overall balance of taste throughout the whole bowl as well as how cool this burned. An overall pleasure to smoke with a great taste and a very pleasant room note.
5 out of 5
Worth trying.
In all my many years, I had never tried this because it was an over the counter blend. This was a huge mistake because this is a very good blend. It has taste, but not overpowering.

Good daily smoke
I'm fairly new to the piping world, but was pleasantly surprised by this blend. This is probably my favorite drugstore blend I've tried so far. This could easily be an all day smoke. Fills well, stays lit, mild taste, little to no tongue bite. Would recommend anyone to try if you haven't.

My favourite of the Captain Black line that I have tried. In fact, the only one I liked. There is a malty caramel flavour under it all that really satisfies. Nice, affordable all-day blend.

Intriguing Room Note, no bite.
If there is Captain Black variety that could replace Cherry Captain Black as my all-time favorite it is Copper Captain Black. It is of the same great quality as Captain Black has always been. There is no bite with the Copper and the room note is intriguing. I hope this does not disappear from the Captain Black lineup; it would be a tragedy.

Lets just be friends!
Relatively new to pipe smoking and have started serious sampling of different blends. I have smoked this blend once and find it to be unimpressive yet a peaceful smoke. Nothing harsh and maybe I'm missing something because I'm still new to the greater perspective of large numbers of blends, but this blend is nice. Which is why I rated it 3 stars.
5 out of 5
Mellow and nutty; all-day smoke
I have to be honest, I have smoked a few Captain Black variants, and have not been overly impressed. I bought a pouch of CB Copper blindly, because I got excited from some of the reviews that I read here on P&C. I am highly impressed with the balanced flavors of smooth burley, and sweet cavendish; I enjoy this blend out of my briars as well as my meerschaums. It is sweet but not too sweet, it is nutty but not over-the-top. It is the mildest aromatic blend that I currently have, and I plan on hoarding it before it becomes unavailable. I suggest you get a pouch just to try. I can't imagine it will disappoint anyone.
3 out of 5
Not for me
I've heard mixed reviews and decided to try. For me it was a very temperamental tobacco. To me it seemed to want to be packed perfect and would fight. It also left a strange aftertaste and could not pinpoint it to the tobacco or the pipe. Many love it, I will probably come back to it in a while.

It's okay
I usually smoke Captain Black regular sometimes dark. I try other brands and flavors and for me personally, CB regular suits my pallet. Of course with all reviews personal preference is a deciding factor. I have two pipes a briarwood and a cob. To give the tobacco a change to change the flavor of the bowl I smoked two bowls in each pipe, then I began to draw my conclusions. The cooper seemed to have a lingering after taste that was more pronounced from my briarwood pipe than my cob. I wasn't real fond of the after taste, so I ended up using my cob to finish the pouch. My wife is asthmatic, I rarely smoke at home, if I do I will go outside, so therefore cannot speak to room note. In my car driving to work with my drivers window partially down, I am not keen on the "car note." I didn't have any issue's with tongue bite with either pipe. This is just one mans opinion.

Doesn't Quite Fully Live Up to the Hype
I'm a relatively novice pipe smoker and bought this based on reviews and word of mouth. In my opinion, this isn't as good compared to some of the Lane varieties I've grown accustomed to and some of the Sutliff blends I smoke. It's not a bad tobacco...it just doesn't work for me.
5 out of 5
Found My Go To
Well I just found my new go to tobacco. I wasn't really looking for a mainstay but the subtlety and smoky sweetness out of my corncob is all I've ever wanted in a smoke. I will surely be buying a lot of this.

My new favorite everday smoke!
I think I may have found my daily go-to with this Capt Black blend. I have tried almost every Capt black blend except for round taste and their premium tins. And Cooper now sits at the #1 spot for me. It has a slight sweet hint combined with a great nutty taste which from what I understand comes from the burley. And as others have said this blend burns pretty cool with lots of billowing smoke. The room note is very pleasant as well. When I first tried Capt Black Gold I thought it had a slight nutty taste that was pleasant but Copper blows it out of the water and I like Gold, but to me Gold while pleasant just always seemed to lack more flavor but Copper delivers in this area. Now don't expect big bold flavor with this but you can expect enough flavor to keep you interested throughout your smoke. This to me is definitely a good all day/everyday smoke. And you don't get that chemically taste that White, Royal, and cherry leave. I do like White and Royal however they smell much better than they taste, the taste being very mild and almost flavorless at times. I also enjoy Capt Black Dark but I believe you can get other Black Cavendish blends much cheaper that are just as good. So bottom line is if you haven't tried Copper yet and your either a aromatic smoker or not give this one a try I think you might be pleasantly surprised. I will be buying a 12oz tin of this in the very near future. Great job Capt Black this is a great blend!

Old world quality that is very pleasantly reminiscent of the past
This tobacco is a definite winner with flavor and room note! Smokes cool and burns consistent with no bite. Definitely going to be one of my regular everyday blends. Has an old world quality that is very pleasantly reminiscent of the past.

Another Great Blend From Captain Black
I received the Captain Black Sampler and was pleased with all the blends. Unfortunately Captain Black Copper was not part of the sampler so I also ordered Copper separately as well as Captain Black Grape to complete their line - and was perfectly satisfied with each blend, and would gladly order them again once I smoked up the batch. (Yes I even enjoyed the Grape)Each flavor is somewhat unique while retaining that unmistakably Captain Black smoking experience. Copper is a great smoke, excellent flavor, no tongue bite, yet does have a tendency to dry out the mouth after the bowl. Which is why I always have a beverage on hand to keep the mouth moist more so with Captain Black than the other aromatics I smoke. But that having been said I'm still giving it a five star rating and would highly recommend it to an aromatic smoker. Dark, Original, and Gold are my favorites, but the more I smoke the Copper it's slowly working it's way up the list.

A nice, all day smoke.
I've never smoked Captain Black before. I was led to believe that it wasn't "quality tobacco." This belief came from other, more experienced pipe smokers. The idea is that since one can only seem to find it a drug stores and never at tobacconists (at least where I live), it mustn't be very good. This belief is strengthed by the fact that most reviewers don't rate the blends very well. But... Recently, I stumbled upon an ad for Captian Black and, for the first time, I really looked at the different offerings. After reading mostly favorable reviews, I ordered a pouch of Copper. When my parcel arrived, I waited until the weekend before trying it out. The waft of scent I get from opening the pouch is chocolate or cocoa--not the sweetness of a milk chocolate candy bar, but the deep semi-sweet scent of a dark chocolate. Which surprised me. There's also a depth to it; it seems very well rounded. The tobaccos in the pouch look great--mostly dark with some bright, golden leaf blended in. The first time I smoked it, I used a late 1960's Savinelli Punto Oro 9004 bent Dublin sterling silver army mount that a friend had given me. Copper packed very easily and lighted without any issues. The taste of the tobacco was just as pleasant as it smelled! It wasn't overly sweet, mind you, just that little semi-sweetness I mentioned above. This lasted the entire bowl. No matter how hard or fast one puffed (I was working outside at the time), there was not tongue bite of any kind. Copper finished off with a fine, powdery, white ash. Also, there wasn't that dreaded scalded tongue when I brushed my teeth that night or the next morning! Since that initial smoke, I've smoked it several more times and keep it with me. It's just such a pleasant, all-day, smoke. I highly recommend it.

Similar to Captain Black Regular
I was smoking the Regular (White) for a month on my corn cob before I tried the Copper and at first I thought that I had put the Regular in it. Now I see what the fuss is all about, this thing is very similar to CB Regular. From the aroma on opening the pouch, the way it burns (not too hot and no bite if you don't puff too hard), the room note, even down to the "sludge" it leaves behind (no fine ashes here, thank you very much). So if you're a fan of CB Regular, you'll enjoy this one.

I really wanted to like this
I wanted to try this tobacco for some time, and I did last night. Unfortunately, it started to make the back of my throat feel quite strange after I started smoking it. I had to empty the bowl and switch to a different brand as this was just a strange sensation that I had never had in my pipe tobacco years. I will give it another try and see if I have the same experience as I would really like to like this. It has a nice room note, but if it messes with my throat and makes it uncomfortable, it is going in the trash.

nice and strong old fashion
Nice but strong ,pretend to be aromatic but i would not consider this as aromatic,mellow yes,it smokes fine in medium size briar pipe(i used old Danish) and giving long ,almost endless smoking time in meer medium size pipe for some reson and probably would not stay in my rotation longer as i do like light roast and small size pipes,my preferences 1"tall pipe,so i am going from this perspective,give it a try,seems it gets stronger with time.

Very satisfyed
Get this Aromatic pouch and first bowl was smooth and bold thick cool smoke( i used prince shape within),very satisfying.But to my my test same brand Regular is more Aromatic to me.Oh,well,it s good,nice cut also,lights up from a single spark and burns till,no bites,no hits,very surprised by,would be on my constant rotation.give it a try,seems like a classic old fashion burly cut.

PLEASING ROOM NOTE....THE END.
Definately needs to dry for a few days. Afterwards, it lights up nice and has a good room note. Not many other redeeming qualities about this one, it has a distinct burning wood taste, smokes hot, and will bite. This blend is not for me, I will turn to Borkum Riff Original Mixture before this any day.

Good Stuff from The Captain
Great tobacco; did not expect it to be as good as it was. The first time I smoked it in my Peterson Darwin and it smoked too hot and gave me tongue bite. The second time I smoked it in my Savinelli Dry System and it still smoked to hot and again gave me tongue bite. I was about to toss it when I received my Daggner Cob Poker; it smoked extremely nice in this pipe, no tongue bite at all and the flavor was 100% better. I then smoked it in my CAO Meerschaum and again it smoked extremely well. So, great all day smoke; my advice is to use a Meerschaum or Cob pipe, that is what i will be doing from here on.

No-Nonsense Aromatic
I mostly smoke aromatics but also dabble in non-aromatics. Although I do enjoy sweet tobaccos immensely, I really wanted a no-nonsense kind of aromatic that provided some sweetness but not overkill. Very nutty and slightly sweet. Does have a slight bitterness to it, but I actually kind of like it.

Up and down on this one. First bowl will be sweet and enjoyable, if a little mild. Next bowl will bite my tongue and inside of my mouth. Never know which to expect. It always leaves a nice aftertaste and has a great room note, however.

I remember the distinct mellow experience when I was a younger man first starting a pipe aficionado experience. I thought I'd try some more from your store because the price was unmatched compared to everyone else's. It's still a great smoke that's never a dissapointment. Thanks again Pipes and Cigars.

A Warm, Dry Pleasant Smoke
I really enjoyed the Captain Black Triple Play Sampler, especially the Red Sky, so I decided to try the Black Copper and I was not disappointed. I keep the pouch in my jacket while working on my farm and it has become a favorite tobacco of mine. I find it burns a bit hot and has a slight but pleasant bite on the tongue. I usually tamp my pipe down a couple times while smoking a bowl and relight it anyway, I let it cool a bit when I do this when smoking the Black Copper. I consider this to be on the moderate side of mild, with a dry smoky flavor that I find very enjoyable. I would recommend it.

Always happy with my purchase

Non-Aromatic Captain
When you open the pouch there is a vanilla smell, but with a definite pure tobacco aroma as well. The pouch I received was just about right in moisture and was ready to go right out of the box. The best way to light this stuff is with a charring light, a tamp, and then a full light. After that, the tobacco stays lit all the way down the bowl. The smoke is full and the first few puffs remind you of the sweet smell from the pouch. This, however, soon gives way to a straight tobacco taste which is very mild and forgiving of fast puffing. With the Virginia and Burley, the stuff achieves a kind of taste that one might associate with steeping tea in a cast iron pot. I say that the the taste is sort metallic, but in a good way. I would guess that is why it was called Copper in the first place. It is very interesting for a tobacco in this genre. The taste stays the same all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. The ash is fine and jumps out with a knockand the pipe is left dry and ghost-free. The aroma is something unusual for the Captain Black line. The wife absolutely hates it. This is the first Captain Black blend that has not been appreciated. Fortunately, it does not linger. The Nicotine level seems low to me and there is no after taste to contend with. And, one more thing, it does not really pair with coffee as most Burley blends seem to be able to do. Overall, a mild blend perfect for those aromatic smokers looking to venture into Burley-based blends. I can't say that I will buy this again and again, but it is a nice change of pace from the usual Captain Black offterings.

Not bad for a basic brand. Not too heavy. I prefer a sweeter taste, this wan't what I was looking for. Would make a good base to mix with other flavors.

S.W.R. Aromatic is one of my favorites. Tastes like the 20th century, with a nose like a vintage record shop!

Very nice taste and room note for this new smoker.

A Horrible Smoke
Captain Black COPPER is a horrible smoke. Rough on the tongue, aroma of old socks, difficult to keep lighted. I'll continue my use of their GOLD.

This is a very mild tobacco: Great for a newbie or as an everyday staple.

Love this tobacco, it's become my favorite. Wonder if it's the same thing as Lane LL7? Thanks for your good service!

Capn Black Copper
I tried `Copper on a whim while purchasing my other staple (Lane BCA). Overall, it was smokable, but I found it had a bite and burned hot, and just overall had a sharpness to it. It was ok, but not something I'd want every day. Worth a try I suppose, but I didn't finish the pouch.
