For those who can remember a time where good tobacco only cost $.16 per ounce I commend you. Mainly because you were most likely smoking the “slightly aromatic, slow burning” pipe tobacco that is Captain Black. Lane Limited was the first to launch this iconic brand and the blends today have been around since 1973. To this day, it is the #1 brand of pipe tobacco around the world!
Pure Black Cavendish tobaccos are used to create this "dark" blend. Using Herman G. Lane's steaming process, these tobaccos lock in flavors of sweetness and hints of vanilla.
