Original FlakeThis is tied for my favorite pipe tobacco of all time, right up there with Escudo, and then SJF from Sam Gawith. The only complaint I have with this blend is that it carries a premium price tag. I bought 20 tins when JR had their 30% deal a week or so ago. That's how good this blend is. Absolutely amazing with even just a couple years on it. Cellar this one deep if you like straight VA flakes. With the FDA looming, prices are nearly guaranteed to only rise from here out. Buy now, or don't and I'll buy all of it! Actually, don't buy it, so that way I can stock up pounds and pounds of this amazing tobacco!551

The famous Capstan Original Flake, a fan favorite for more than a century, is a mellow blend of fine flue-cured Virginia tobaccos that have been steamed and pressed to draw out all of the leafs natural sugars. This age-old curing method provides a smoke that is naturally smooth, sweet, and very aromatic without the help of any artificial flavorings. Sold in airtight 1.75 oz. tins, Capstan Original Flake is a true classic that is so gentle on the tongue; it can easily be enjoyed throughout the day without becoming cloying.
