Lane Limited Captain Black Cherry

(1.62)
The cherry blend combines sweet-smoking cavendish leaf with a sound kick of cherry casing, for a very flavorful smoke. Exceptionally mild, delightfully aromatic.
Notes: Due to EU regulations, this is now sold in some European countries as Ruby.

I think that some reviewers are not aro smokers and others have different tastes. I smoke English oriental blends, but definitely have a very sweet tooth and always have. If you want CHERRY you get Cherry with Captain Black. I also like Gawith's Top Black, and Lane's Very Cherry, and have blended them together to experiment and with BCA also. Funny how when you go to P&C website, how different the rating of the toby is ... they rate it much higher than here.

Well, I like it. I bought this on a whim and was scared when I opened the pouch; the cherry aroma was strong. The first light and first quarter of the bowl taste like chemical cherry, but after that it dissipates and you are left with a sweet and pleasant Cavendish. The cherry flavor is present throughout the bowl but it becomes less and less pronounced as you progress thru the bowl.

As far as bite: I experienced none.

Another big surprise is that my pouch was not overly moist or sticky. I don't know if Lane just changed the blend or what, but the tobacco was dry.

I think this is the only Cherry blend that I have actually enjoyed and will keep around.

Still the best part of the Cherry to land into your mouth. Through your pipe that is. This Cherry blends has Balls. Good heavy smoke not even bad with an occasional Inhale. NOT Your usual Cherry.

OK this blend is not for the smoker looking for a soft smoke aromatic cherry blend or room pleaser. This is a fully loaded cavendish with a good amount of nicotine. You have to smoke it slow or it will bite. For a cherry blend I love this stuff smokes better in a larger bowl.

If you like a strong taste of cherry and a strong room note, I found this to have both ! Really enjoyed it. Leaves a great aftertaste too, which for me, is a plus. I could smoke this all day long. (and have done so). It's a bit pricey tho at the retail outlets....., and I seem to have a difficult time finding it available in bulk pricing.....but as for the tobacco itself.......I REALLY enjoyed it.

A few weeks ago I had a craving for a cherry aromatic and my closest tobacco shops only stock Captain Black which I had never tried before. I cant explain it but I love this tobacco. I’ve smoked it in all manners of different pipes, filtered and unfiltered, and I absolutely can not get it to bite. It’s smooth and easy on the tongue and never leaves me with palate fatigue. The room note is wonderful and everyone around compliments it. Now make no mistake: it tastes exactly like cherry chapstick. This is not an exaggeration, it’s as if they rubbed cherry chapstick right on the tobacco. I don’t mind this a bit as I think that’s a pleasant taste. I still like my virginias, VaPers, burleys, and latakia blends but this is now an everyday smoke for me.

I love it and sadly miss it being imported to Israel. In a few weeks time I will be in America where I can buy the share of everyone who doesn't like it. I'm always open to gifts being sent to me of unwanted portions!
