    Hey guys my father in law has been a LONG time capt black gold smoker but has expressed some interest in trying something new but he simply has no idea where to start seeing as that has been his dedicated blend I understand it is a golden Cavendish, does anyone have any suggestions has to other non OTC blends that would be similar but maybe a little more premium for him? thanks again for any help

    Powell,

    I am not a huge aromatic smoker but I have recently tried and quite enjoy "Black Gold" from milantobacco.com tastes similar to the first few puffs of the Captain but stays true through the whole bowl with no undesirable ashy aftertaste.

    Enjoy

    what glen said. i think the RLP-6 is gold, if not its the R-18. 1-Q is captain black white.

    well, actually, all three are the GOOD versions of the captain blacks, but you get the point.

    plus, even though its better, if you order it in bulk online (hell, even in the shop i work in) its cheaper than the actual captain blacks.

    I'll second Lane 1-Q. It's a solid smoke. It's more like CBW, which I also smoke, but 1-Q actually tastes real.

    call the new hope store. you'll get a better price because PA has a lower tobacco tax.
