    I'd give Sail Yellow a try. I've never smoked that stuff. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it.

    x2. The stuff smells great. CBW does a hell of a job gooping up pipes though. I've got close to a pound of the stuff cellared and it'll likely stay that way for a while.I occasionally smoke one bowl here and there. The smell/room note of the stuff is what hits me first. It smells great. The second thing that hits me is how many pipe cleaners I need to clean out my pipe after smoking that stuff.

    I'd pick CBW, but I admit that I've never tried Sail.

    CBW is the tobacco that got me (and likely many other Americans) into pipe smoking.

    I'd personally go with Sail. It really does taste like a tobacco, whereas I find CB White to taste like goop.
    Keep in mind that Sail Yellow is pretty much a standard natural Cavendish. So it'll have a mild sweet sugar casing but little if any top flavoring.
    CB White is a mixture of various Cavendish tobaccos with very heavy top flavoring that, to me, drowns out any tobacco flavor.
    It's all about personal taste however.

    I think Sail Yellow makes for a nice, slightly sweet, "natural" smoke...but the taste is ultra mild. Not one of my all time favorites or anything, but a nice tobacco.

    I've never seen or tried Sail.
    I generally find something to like about any tobacco.

    The Captain is one of my favorites.

    In all seriousness, Borkum Riff hands down. I would rate Borkum Riff over several tinned blends...BR Bourbon Whiskey is fantastic...
