    Thumbs up Captain Black White

    I freely admit that I am self conscious about posting a review of this. However, I feel that there are some OTC blends that are worthy, PA being one for me, and CB white being the other.

    This was actually a gift from my wife. I had been wanting to try this forever. My grandfather smoked a pipe, and i remember the pouch had a ship on it. That narrowed it down to CB or Borkum Riff. I haven't had Borkum Riff yet, but that was the inspiration for me wanting the CB.

    I smoked this particular example in my Falcon pipe, which I love. Another review from the journal, from Sept 25 2012.

    The pouch smell is strong, sweet and delicious. I got a strong smell of dark dried fruit, very much like raisins. It is dark cavendish in appearance, with lighter tobacco sprinkled in. There was also a hint of sweet baked goods. I didn't get much flavor on the pre-light draw.

    Upon lighting though, wow. A great cookie flavor. Great billows of sweet smoke. Maybe this was particularly because I was smoking it in the Falcon, but it was extremely cool smoking.

    The wife reports a great room note, and I find it slightly reminiscent of my grandfather's pipe. Very nostalgic to me.

    As I said in my Lane Ltd 1Q review, CB white is superior in my mind. I love it. It is my go to tobacco for a mindless sweet smoking tobacco, especially puttering around the garage. Something I will keep in stock for sure. Highly recommended for someone just getting into pipes, especially someone like me who had basically no prior tobacco experience.

    Funny how differently different people can experience the same tobacco. I had seen a few people on different forums who seemed to like CBW so I thought about giving it another try (it was one of my first tobaccos when I got started over 20 years ago). Your review was one of the things that finally put me over and I bought some last time I was at the grocery story. I was very underwhelmed. It seemed a lot like a very under steeped tea: a hint of the flavors you want/expect from the tea (tobacco) but mostly hot water (air/smoke).
