    I've got some that has been aging in a mason jar since last year. I stopped smoking of it because of the lack of taste. However, since it is now on 2t2m I might pull it out and see if my taste (or the tobacco) has changed any.

    Last time I had the Captain, it was in hopes of a throwback moment, and all I really tasted was glycol and heat.... I was really disappointed with it. Haven't been back for years.

    Its CBW. I miss typed. Captain Black White.

    I thought the same thing when I first tried it. Then I had another bowl and liked it.
    I waited a bit. I am now in love with it. It has a wonderful vanilla note. I have noticed
    one bad thing about it. It does cary from pack to pack. You can get back packs.

    I'm with Sas on this one. CBW was one of my first tobaccos and I liked it - at first. I went back to it about a year ago and found it really 2D. I went through the pouch, did a little mixing trying to make it more 3D. I don't think I'm gonna fork out cash to review it this time round. PA is another story - I could smoke it all day (but don't because there's just too many bowls and not enough time).

    My experience with the Captain was a little lackluster at first. Tasted like hot air, and not much else. So I went away from it for a little while, tried some English/Balkan stuff, some pure burley blends, and so on. Once I started getting a better feel for tasting tobacco, I went back to Captain Black and was surprised. I started picking up on the toasted marshmallow flavor other smokers had written about. I started getting really good results after mixing in several pinches of Carter Hall to the pouch. Haven't bought another pouch of CBW yet. Not to say that I won't--Cavendish tobaccos are good every now and then, but they aren't high up on my list.

    I had my first english blend and taste of latakia...boy that stuff is...freaking different. Totally not something that I was expecting. After that, I had some CBW, and boy, what a difference. I can now taste the sweetness and I love the aroma, that it gives off. I find it to be a very good smoke.

    Now, I'm very interested in trying some of Boswell's aromatics, such as no bite dlite.

    For me, when I started smoking I could not taste sweetness in anything. Pulling out the different flavors takes experience, patience and most of all, variety.
