Out of stock

Captain Black Gold, the lightest of the Captains in flavor, is well known and appreciated by pipe smokers for its smooth aroma and pleasantly sweet taste. I won't bowl you over, and it always satisfies. A wonderful everyday smoke, comprised of matured Golden Cavendish tobaccos, exceptionally mild, delightfully aromatic. If you are a Virginia lover, then this tobacco is for you. Captain Black Gold is pure Virginia, with no burley.

Flavor Profile

Lane Limited
Blend Type
Light honey & vanilla
Strength i STRENGTH: the overall strength of the tobacco. This includes the strength of its taste and its nicotine content.
Flavoring i FLAVORING: primarily for aromatic blends, this refers to the "topping" but sometimes also to the "casing" added to the tobacco. This will account for detectable flavors like cherry or chocolate.
Taste i TASTE: although a wholly subjective measure, it is one of the most important in that it measures how tasty smokers find the blend. Like food, some dishes are tastier than others.
Room Note i ROOM NOTE: a measure of the ambient scent/smell a blend puts out for those around the smoker. Basically, how strong does it smell, and how pleasant do those around you find that smell. The stronger, generally the less pleasant. You can also call this the "wife rating."

How to buy Bulk Tobacco

Bulk tobacco starts at a minimum of 2 ounces.
4 ounces = 1/4 pound
8 ounces = 1/2 pound
16 ounces = 1 pound
80 ounces = 5 pounds

The chart below gives you the prices for number of ounces. For example, if you buy 15 ounces, then you're charged as if you were buying a half pound. But if you buy 16 ounces, then your price goes down. So...the more you buy, the more you save.

    I've been smoking Captain Black Gold for many years. Very enjoyable and I frequently get comments about how pleasant the aroma is as I walk down the street.

    CupO'Joes has very fast shipping. Great smoking tobacco blend, if your new to pipe smoking, or a fan of this blend. Very mild tobacco with a slight aroma. Great smoking blend for all day smoking or just for beginners.

    Better than Borkum Riff

    At 75 years old, I have smoked a large number of tobaccos. About 15 years ago I tried several of the Captain Black varieties, and when I hit CB Gold my search was over. For me it is a good all day Tobacco

    Capt Black Gold - Great Tobacco

    Posted by Milt on Jan 29th 2018

    I've been a pipe smoker for over 40 years and during that time, I've used various products including custom blends. My most favorable experience is with Captain Black Gold which I really enjoy smoking. And, I actually receive complements about the aroma/smell from smokers and non-smokers alike. Not everyone will like it as I do but I use (and buy) what I like with apologies to no one.

    Regarding Cup O' Joes - I'm really pleased with their pricing, convenience and speed of delivery. I buy in bulk so don't need to reorder often but compared to other sources (which are hard to find these days), I couldn't be happier with my experience. I'll be back !!!

    I have been buying Captain Black Gold for years, from other sources, so I know the product well.
    Considering that it was over the Veterans Day week-end, your delivery time was to be applauded. If you have any veterans in your employ, I say "God bless them".

    I purchased a large quantity of Captain Black Gold and loved the tobacco product so much. The quality is great, and by buying in this size, I save a little as well. I highly recommend this product for any pipe smokers, and believe you will love it.
