Captain Black Red Sky pipe tobacco lets big cherry taste and aroma punch through the blend, but without doing a number on your senses. Red Sky blends Burley, Black Cavendish and bright Virginia with rich cherry in a way that's always flavorful, never harsh. Order a tin today!
After being warned by others about the CB Cherry, I ended up taking a chance on this one after some other reviews mentioned it was nothing like the CB Cherry. Well they were right on the money, the Red Sky has a cherry bourbon sort of smell, almost a cherry dark chocolate smell while in the tin. However when lit any sort of strong cherry smell is replaced with a cherry hint in the background. Letting the smooth Tobacco speak for itself. Not to sweet, with still the hint of the cherry in the background. A perfect mellow smoke for those that like the hint of the cherry/bourbon/DC.The burn was excellent, flavor consistent threw out the entire bowl. This has now become my go to tobacco :
This is my first time trying a Captain Black tobacco and I m very pleased with it. It s a mild smoke and a strong but not over powering flavor. Very pleased with it; will probably buy again in the future.
