Gees, now I have to try the grape. Wasn't it you that got me all excited about Exotic Orange? Haven't located a tin in Canada yet. Still on the must try list!

Or you could get a tub of Velvet, good old non-aro (?) burley for about $27. A good smoke and a good mixer, probably -- haven't tried it, but been tempted. Maybe I'll try the pouch first. Slow as a I smoke, a pouch can be in rotation for quite a while.

How can you recommend a blend you haven't tried?

It is not a natural grape or subtle grape flavor. We had a guy at our pipe club meetings that smoked it, and it is very much like an intense grape bubble gum, or grape Kool Aid. So, if that appeals to you, then have at it.

Never tried it. Am not an aro smoker. So there's that. But Captain Black was 1 of the tobaccos I smoked in my early days of smoking some 40 years ago and all I can say about the Captain Black of my memory of 40 years ago would be "I don't think so." :P
