Not as good as the first batch.
My brother ordered the Hero's blend about a year ago, best stuff I've had yet, just the smell of the opened bag was out of this world. the last pouch i got was not quite as moist, but not dry either, Just doesn't smell or seem as good as my brother 's pouch. But I would order it again.

Not too shabby!
I purchased this never having smoked any of the Casey Jones tobaccos. I wasn't sure what to expect but, I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised. I've been smoking it in one of my cobs, and it's worked out quite well. I have other favorites which I definitely like better but, make no mistake, this stuff was still a very enjoyable smoke. I'm not sure if it will become one of my regular puffs, but I'd definitely consider buying it again if and when I feel the need to mix things up or simply need a change of pace.

Captain black gold tobacco is a very mild smoke and mixes very well with Lane BCA Pipe tobacco For a cool smooth all day smoke !!!!

Mild and pleasant..
A really easy smoke. No muss, no fuss, easy to find OTC and tastes fine. It's no gourmet experience -- no pompous pipe smoker will be impressed with your taste -- but you are guaranteed an easy and tasty smoke that smells nice and burns cool. Very mild and very pleasant.

Not as tasty 2nd time around
I bought a 1.5 oz. pack in connection with a promotion by P&C when I submitted my order before this one. I liked it so much I ordered 2 more pkgs. It’s still a decent smoke, but I don’t like it as much as I did initially...not sure what’s different in my reaction, but I’m not as happy as I was the first time.

Well surprised
I bought this on a whim after I made a big order and I was very surprised by this smoke now I'm trying to find it in bulk very good

Captain Black Gold neutral
I have enjoyed Captain Black Original for a long time so I decided to try Captain Black Gold. The Gold is not nearly as easy to smoke and the aroma is slightly foul.

Very Solid Smoke!
I picked up a pouch from my local shop while waiting on my latest P&C order to arrive (I waited to long to order), and it’s pretty good stuff! Sweet, mellow and very enjoyable overall!

Very Pleased
I've ordered from Pipes & Cigars several times and have been well pleased. My order is always correct and arrives in a timely manner. The price is among the best and the shipping cost are affordable.

Might be my new go to
Very solid mild smoke, with a vanilla aroma and naturally mild sweetness. To be honest this is one of the few blends that left me wanting another bowl after bowl.

Captain Black Gold
So far I've enjoyed all of Captin Black flavors. My favorite has been Copper and Royal with Gold and White label tied.

Awesome
Great smoke! I've been a pipe smoker for about a year and this is one of my favorite aromatic tobaccos I have found.

Great Smoke
This one is moving to be one of my favorite. It is mild to smoke and has a great room note. This is first time I tried this brand and will reorder it again! If you had a list of tobaccos for new pipe smokers this one would have to be on it.

Like very much as an add on tobacco or newer smoker
good smoke. I am still fairly new to pipe smoking and have tried several CB and Borkum's. This is the most mild of the CB and find it either a good mix to a darker burley or something that maybe has a little too much bite for my novice tastes or burn a bowl of this as my last of the evening after smoking some stronger tobaccos. The description given I agree with. Not much bite, a little bit of vanilla, mild. I tend to not smoke only gold as I think it is a little light on flavor on its own for a whole evening. Other flavors, CB royal, original, dark, BR original and bourbon. So I may blend / use this with the darker blends. As a comparison, I often finish with the BR bourbon as that has a nice sweetness and bourbon smoothness with a little more flavor than CB gold.

Mild aromatic
Capt Black Gold is a mild aromatic, good for by itself or blending with your favorite burley. I have not had this bite, ever.

Winner. Bitchin' pouch. Excellent room note. If you don't like it, smoke Latakia. If you still don't like that, don't risk cancer by smoking.

Captain Black Gold
Gold should be the most popular blend of the Captain Black line...it's mild Virginia Cavendish is much smoother than the Burley blends. It's aroma is pleasing and not overpowering.

Always the Captain
Always the Captain, but too much fine cut in the mix lately. Bought several small packs hoping to get more long cut but got 1/2 cig chop like in bulk and the can I bought before. The long cut shag burns lighter and smoother, the finer chop burns hotter and is less pleasant. What's up ?

Flash Knockout in the First Round
Casey Jones is far and away the winner here. I have had both of their blends and Last Ride is my preferred blend of the two, but for the price they are both great smokes- Among the first aromatics I recommend. Captain Gold is a pitiful contender here. Had it been Copper or even Original, it would have made it a few more rounds. haha
5 out of 5
Buy it and spoil yourself...great bang for the buck
This was my first stab at a non-cherry aromatic and was immediately spoiled. Rich vanilla and honey, reminding me of some of La Aurora's best cigars, with sweet complexity of light fruit such as a fresh pear and a touch of mango. I now have two more pouches awaiting me. It's a mainstay with me now, just as is Casey Jones Last Ride is for cherry blends.
3 out of 5
Meh
I reviewed Hero's Blend elsewhere and gave it 5 stars. CB Gold, though, is pretty dull, which lets the roughness come through. It's not very rough, but without a strong profile, it's the most noticeable trait. CB Royal and Dark are much better options if you're looking for depth.
5 out of 5
Subtle and rich
Worth more than its price. Complex, with woodsy notes that complement its vanilla top, floral, and with virtually no bite. It’s a great aromatic experience, well-balanced and immensely relaxing.

Good aeromatic
With the weather at below 50 degrees, the room note is important and this blend's is good. The cloud of smoke rises as a heron does from the reeds and is dense as clouds in the spring morning sky. It has the kiss of a young Irish lass instead of the bite of a viper. The nicotine hit is that of a babe in arms. A tribute to a hero locomotive engineer dedicated to his work.
5 out of 5
Room Note is Good
With the below 50 degree weather still prevalent, the room note is very important for me to smoke in the house. The Green River Valley Cavendish saves the day when blended with Honey/Vanilla. The heavy cloud of smoke floats like a leaf in the autumn wind. No bite at all. A tickle of Vitamin N and all is right worth the world. Long live the history of Casey Jones the only RR hero I know.

As with other Captain Black pouch tobacco, it helps to allow it to dry out just a bit before enjoying.

The best pipe tobacco! Mild & flaverful
Great mild taste at a great price

Nice
Pretty decent smoke. I would say hardly any bite and didn't burn too hot as long as it's packed good. I didn't smoke any other blends untill after the pouch was finished. I'm considering a can in the future.

enjoy your freetime with a good pipe full
the 5 for 25 is a teriffic buy that will provide hours of enjoyable smoking and introduces one to hundreds of different brands at a great discount.

Hard to keep lit.
It has a nice smooth flavor to it along with a sweet aroma. However, I found it hard to keep lit. Tried several different pipes with the same result. Don't know if it was me but I haven't had this problem with other brands.

Casey Jones Hero's Blend Fan Club!
I love this stuff! I can't leave it to go to my other brands I have! I ordered a pouch because of the review that was not so good, but when I tried it I couldn't understand the bad opinion. I ordered the tin and will not run out if I can help it! Thanks to P&C for providing it for us!!!!

And you know that notion just crossed my mind!
The hubby really enjoyed this blend gives it 4 stars.He said the vanilla was not overpowering and the honey added just enough flavor making this blend a winner! many vanilla blends he has tried end up in his jar of all vanilla tobacco because he finds them boring but this one he said will be ordered again and not end up in the "JAR"!

I find my own tastes seem to prefer the Casey Jones Last Ride over the Hero's Blend.

Gold is good!
To me, CB Gold is the mildest of the Captain Black line of tobacco. The cavendish is delightful in taste and aroma. Toss up between Captain Black Gold or original White as my go to everyday smoke.

A good simple daily smoke
Probably my #2 after Capt Black Copper in the Capt's line up. A good mild and nutty smoke that you can smoke daily. Not going to knock your socks off with overwhelming flavor but a good smoke none the less. It won't leave that chemical taste that you may get from White, Royal or Cherry either.

No harshness here
I tried both the Hero's Blend and Last Ride and they're both good. I like Hero's Blend the best of the two. It burns good and has no harshness even when it's smoked a little hot. I don't see any way to make this stuff harsh. It has a sweet Vanilla taste that is somewhat like butterscotch. A nice mild all day smoke with great flavor. I'm going to order the 12 OZ tin and ad this to my rotation. Oh the room note is great too. Great stuff!

Disappointed smoking Experience
Bought this blend because it was suppose to be an aromatic and mild blend. Packed a new pipe with this tobacco and lit up. Smoking this blend was difficult because it would not stay lit very long and would not burn correctly. When I cleaned out my pipe, seems like I wasted about half a bowl each time. I put aside the new pipe and tried a couple of older pipes. Same experience so I know it is not my pipes. Sadly, I bought a pouch and a 12-oz can. Not sure when I will open the can as I was very disappointed with this blend. I will be smoking Dunhill London Mixture again which is a different flavor profile but has always burned consistent and is never a disappointment.

Great Mild Aromatic
I really liked the vanilla/honey flavor. It is a great aromatic and super cheap. You are missing out if you don't at least buy a pouch and give it a try. Ready to smoke right out of the pouch, not to wet or dry. Burns nice and cool. Room note is one of the better vanillas I have tried, and people like the smell.

Hero's Blend
I tried Hero's blend because it sounded like something I would enjoy.When I got it the smell was great.Well i'll give the aroma 4 stars but the flavor doesn't match.I expected a more smooth flavor but what i got was bite.The room note is wonderful.Unfortunately this one isn't going on my favorites list.

Stick with 1Q
Not really sure what it is about this blend, but I'm unable to finish an entire bowl... and I like vanilla aromatics. I tried about 5X now, and always dump it about 1/2 through. Something odd about this one for me. It's incredibly light. Maybe the lightest tobacco I've smoked (and I started smoking a pipe in 1987). Overly steamy. Not really sure why anyone would smoke this over 1Q. But I understand everyone's taste buds/PH are different, and this could be a home-run for someone. For me personally, it was remarkably banal.

Not bad, not great.
This isn't what I would call a bad pipe tobacco, but I just didn't feel that it had much to offer. I picked this up along with the Casey Jones last ride. Last ride Lives up to the name. This, however, doesn't have much flavor to offer other than just...... smoke. Vaguely caramel, mild, but that comes along with a fairly sharp bite, and maybe it's just me, but I also struggled to keep it lit. Overall, it is OK, but it doesn't do much for me. Not bad, not great.

Between the two Casey Jones choices, this is the loser.
I purchased a pouch of each Casey Jones, the Hero's Blend and Last Ride. Last Ride was a winner from start to finish. I've almost finished the pouch and hadn't tried this one yet, so I reluctantly put my Last Ride aside and opened the Hero's Blend. Smelled good in the pouch and lit it up one evening while watering my garden. Everything went downhill from there. Not only are my plants suffering from the cold summer nights we're having, my pipe was no longer my friend. This one smoked harsh and distasteful. Couldn't find any vanilla or butterscotch in either the taste or room note, and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I finally gave up on it and knocked out the un-smoked portion and called it a night. I'll put this in my wine cellar for 6 months and come back to it. If it seems to have improved by then, I'll certainly leave another review. Until then, this one will not see the light of day for a while. If trying a new tobacco, go with Last Ride. That is a wonderful blend and enjoyable start to finish. Room note is so good I find myself following the smoke around just to smell it. Room note on this one brings back memories of tax audits and transmission problems. Not desirable.

Very good smoke. Not a strong aromatic at all. Pleasant room note with a slightly sweet finish. Don't over look becuase its an off brand! You will be missing out.

Awsome!!!!
Absolutely marvelous. It's hard to even classify it as an aromatic because it's so smooth and smokes so dry. No bite, great room note and honey-sweet flavor. Don't listen to the blue bloods, they're never impressed by anything that's cheap and stocked at Wally World. Jump in with both feet and get a tub. This is my new all-day smoke. I've never tasted gold, but I bet it tastes like this! Happy Smokes
