I don't really smoke that much Captain Black anymore but will always have a place in my heart for the Gold, it was the first pipe tobacco I ever tried and really liked it. I then went on to trying the blue (Royal), then the White (vanilla), then the Red (Cherry). The funny thing is that's the order I like them in from best to worst.

I'm going to post a little poll to see what Captain Black tobacco wins...just for sh*ts and giggles.

CBW was my first blend ever, so it's a sentimental favorite. Not on my roster now, but I've bummed a bowlful from friends who had an open pouch a few times since.

Captain Black smells wonderful. Pity, really, that it's built on some really horrible, toxic vegetation (I'm loathe to use the word Tobacco ). If they topped it on some Uhle's or Peretti's burleyweed it could be pretty awesome.

I like the Royal. It's cheap and reminds me of BCAQ. I don't smoke it a lot, but it's nice on occasion.

I don't feel qualified to vote as I've only tried the CB Royal and that was quite early on in my ultimate blend quest. I haven't smoked any in years ...

Since we are on the subject of captain Black, I heard that lanes 1Q is actually Captain black Royal...is this true?

I really didn't like it when I retried it (too chemical for me now), but CBW was my main tobacco for 20+ years before my hiatus. Royal was a nice change of pace, but I always felt the gold was kind of 'meh'. I never tried the cherry. My older brother swear by royal.

What, no option for "the one I don't have to smoke"? Having worked in a shop that had a well-established Lane clientèle, I've had my hands buried in their product for countless hours. It was mindboggling how much Q1 and HGL we sold. Smells good (at times). Tastes like ass (always).

I was on vacation, and I'd forgotten my tobacco. For days, kept looking at that CB White pouch in the gift shop, and then I finally broke. Made it about half way through a bowl and then tossed it all in the trash. I didn't have an itch for a pipe for days after I returned from that trip. We had guys smoking 1LB of Q1 EVERY week. "How?" Don't ask me. They kept the doors open. I'd thank them for that.

They all smell great except for the cherry, which is smells like it's topped with a cherry soda pop. Didn't stop me from trying it though...
I think I liked the gold the best.

Tried Gold and Blue, I like the Royal Blue out of the two.
