Poker buddy had me try a tin of Capstan that was tinned in the 80s. It was unbelievable. Smooth as silk, flavors galore. Sweet and hints of bright fruit like an apple. Later I smoked my usual P.S. Luxury Twist and it almost tasted harsh. I look at my buddy and said thanks for ruining me!

What a treat to smoke this aged tobac!

And he probably didn't feel any remorse for ruining all other tobaccos for you lol.

Sure! But it might be cheaper to buy that tin online for 350 😝

Picked up an older tin like the one in the above picture in a buy from a BoB last year. Had Spanish language on the back, but the smoke was totally sublime!! I have several of the newer tins aging at the moment.Will be interesting to see how they compare to the older stuff!! cheers FTRPLT
