I'd rather not smoke as time is to precious as to waste it with those two blends.

Hard choice but if I must pick one it would have to be Captain Black

I'll say Captain Black for two simple reasons. I don't care for 1Q at all. And I do like Mac Baren 7Seas White, which I hear is their version of CB. No, that's not quite right. I don't hate 7Seas and Mrs. Rookie loves when I smoke that, and I like when Mrs. Rookie loves things I like.

1q  has never been as good as Captain black, also Captain black has a more distinctive note in the air. Much more recognizable, whereas 1q could be mistaken for many different tobaccos. And people who say they taste the same, are in way over their head.

Captain Black (original/white) is nostalgic for me, as it's the blend I started my pipe journey with. Nowadays I'd say HGL... I love the English-Aromatic crossover genre!

Captain Black by a bit. Nicer room note and flavors to me. Seems much improved over past incarnations.

Not a big fan of either, but 1Q is more repeatable for me.

I personally love 1Q. It's not about being complex or thought provoking. It's about easy to smoke and wispy. Kinda like Tentley iced tea. Just sit back and veg out.

I completely agree Zig.

The only exposure to CB was the filter tipped cigarillos back in the day which probably is a poor representation of what it would be like in a pipe and I just recently for the first time saw 1Q available up here so I really can't speak to either blend specifically.

To your point, complex isn't always necessary and for me that's Colt's aromatic. Simple, tasty, nostalgic, satisfying.

Now  that I see the 1Q available maybe I'll get those two and come back with a proper vote.
