Capstan Gold Ready Rubbed in a Macbaren Billiard.

Capstan Gold is a mixture of bright Virginia tobacco from three continents. If I remember my history correctly, this was originally blended by WD & HO Wills many years ago. This is currently manufactured and distributed globally by Macbaren. I do believe the rights to this brand name is/was owned by multiple companies around the world. I remember from my college days in India back in 1998 it was sold as WD & HO Wills Gold Flake Pipe Tobacco. In fact in India there is still a cigarette brand sold as WD & HO Wills Gold Flake by ITC, although the pipe tobacco has disappeared.

I would say that this is a quintessential bright Va Blend, as it has been in continuous production for many years, and blending rights owned by multiple companies in different markets. Personally I find it an excellent bright Va blend and would recommend.
