    lol
    Got a few bowl sample from the box pass and yet to try it.
    (Sail Green was on my TAD list)

    The description in TR is confusing to me.

    It says the content is Cavendish.
    Then when you read the description, it talks about Burley, Virginia, Oriental, and Brazilian.
    (Brazilian? heh)

    Anyways, just looking for you fellas take on this OTC tobacco (that is not OTC around me).

    The only sail I ever smoke was sail green, and it's not really my cup of tea, just not used to the flavor, kinda amphora-esque IMO.

    "Cavendish" is a really confusing term. In this case, the cavendish is "Dutch Cavendish" which is a spicey, interesting, and somewhat harsh tobacco. What is Sail Yellow? A typical Dutch tobacco - spicey cavendish, a slight topping (anise), and other virginias, burleys, and I think orientals.

    the first pouch of pipe tobacco I ever bought was Sail yellow. Captain black is worse but not by much. It is certainly different from any cavendish I've had since. Sail convinced me to search beyond OTCs. If that were all that is available, I would still be a cig smoker.
