Capstan’s Gold Flake is the younger blonde sister to Capstan’s Original. Sliced from cakes of finely blended, subtly flavored golden Virginia tobaccos, it is delightfully refreshing. Expect a figgy aroma, with notes of hay and lemongrass on the palate, and very mild spice. Enjoy it folded or rubbed. An old favorite for good reason.

    There’s something about Capstan Gold Flake that keeps me going back to it… It’s neither as
    nuanced to my palate as are other gold Virginia flakes, nor is it as “sweet & tangy” as others,
    still. It’s truly a middle-ground kind of smoke, but somehow it satisfies. Moisture content is good,
    packs and burns easily. I experience a slightly sour yet pleasant aftertaste that makes me want
    to load up and have another bowl. I’m just not sure I’ll load up with more tins at the premium
    price Mac Baren is asking. I can’t highly recommend this blend, but you certainly wouldn’t be
    losing anything if you picked up a tin to give it a go, yourself.
