Never thought I would be able to smoke this great tobacco again. It was my "go to" for many years in the 1970's and 1980's but when it disappeared from the U.S. market in the 1990's I was relegated to Gawith's FVF and Golden Glow. When Macbarens reintroduced it last year I had serious doubts as to the possible resemblance, or lack therof, to the original but, wonder of wonders, the new Capstan is virtually identical to the one I remember. Maybe I am just an older pipeman with calloused tastebuds but it sure tastes the same to me. If you like a nice medium bodied, relatively natural tasting Virginia flake, give it a try. J.R.R. Tolkien's favorite is back!
