Capstan: FLAKE GOLD 50g

Your Price: $14.45
Item Number: CAPFG
A light, bright Virginia flake of famous refinement and antiquarian origins, Capstan Gold, like its medium-bodied Blue sibling, was originally created by W.D. & H.O. Wills of Bristol during the latter half of the 19th century. Suffice to say, it's no accident this smoking mixture has survived as a favorite to so many generations.

Not a strong tobacco in any way, and those who prefer a lot of spicy or sharp notes or a lot of nicotine will not find much here. For the rest of us, this is a very gentle flake, easily mashed up, rubbed out or folded, and a tremendously enjoyable smoke. Flavor started as a creamy sweet virginia, moves through some brighter lemongrass types of flavor, hinting at some kind of gentle topping... can't quite place it. Smoked with a couple relights, no moisture issues, no dirty flavors. Top quality and a treat in the genre. Similar to F/T Cut Virginia Plug, but sweeter. Also if you review this tobacco positively, Rich sends you out 20 free tins, right old buddy old pal?
