I got this along with Black Magic and Mystique. After trying the Black Magic, which I adored, I tried the Cap'n and was surprised it wasn't an aromatic. It has a bright, almost sweet taste on mu lips when I'm done and felt more flavorful than I'd expected. I wish I had a rum-flavored aromatic to toss with it. I honestly might try a sampling of this and some plumcake because it was a great ride from a great spot I just happened to be working at nearby for Yale. Turns out there's quite a few Union members who also enjoy this place. I wish I'd had more time, because this would've been great with a white rum drink. Full stars and full steam ahead.

Smoked like an organic, more robust Captain Black, the same nice flavor and simple goodness, but with more body and no sacchariney bitterness.

I bought the tobacco from The Owl Shop. As always, the staff were extremely nice. The tobacco was broad cut and dark black with flecks of dark brown, like well-mulched leaves. The moisture content as sold at the counter was moist, and it needed to be dried..

Tin note was all toffee-chocolatey goodness. The broad cut leafs packed and lit easily. The first half of the the bowl had no bite and stayed lit with minimal re-lighting. The smoke was warm and velvety, full of the aromas of nougat and caramel...I wanted to pour it over pancakes and eat it! As the smoke progressed, a rich raisineyness developed and stayed throughout the entire bowl. At the end of the bowl, a light black coffee taste, pleasantly bitter, unfolded. Though a sweet smoke, it had full body and provided a nice nicotine kick. It finished moist, with some gunky dottle at the bottom.

My GF described the room note as "pleasant".

Four stars, highly recommended for any aromatic aficionado!
