    Capstan is one of those legendary tobaccos that's been talked about for years. It made a big splash last year when it returned to the U.S. market after an 18-year hiatus. Capstan's origins date back to the late-1800s. It has over a 100-year history, being produced by several different production houses. Last year, The Mac Baren Tobacco Company took over for the re-introduction to the American marketplace. Here is our review of the latest incarnation of Capstan Yellow Flake. If you like Virginia tobaccos, you have to read this.

    Another good read.

    Romeowood - didn't know you were a gamer! Smoking and playing an RPG is the best. We've actually included HP loses if you go too long without smoking

    I started smoking a pipe while reading The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and playing D&D. It just seemed like the right thing. As we got older you had to drink beer or wine out of a wooden goblet.

    Great review Romeowood, that brought me back a few years.

    Yo Ro - another simply wonderful writeup. I enjoy this great blend for a first bowl in the morning, as it sets up my palate for the day. But it can easily be an all day blend. Any opinions on how the ready rubbed versions compare?

    I enjoyed the review very much, and thanks to whomever for taking the time to embellish the article with pix!
