I'm not much of an avid smoker of any smoke products, although I have some experience and want to give honest reviews of what I may try. One reason is that I'm usually limited financially to what I can afford. With that said, I focus more of value with my budget and finding a tasty product I can work with in that range. I think the current $9.99 price of 50 Captain Black Mini Tips is good value, despite their small size. The Original tastes and smells a lot like Captain Black Regular Pipe Tobacco to me. The flavor and aroma is pretty mild, milder than a Black & Mild, about the range of a Black & Mild "Mild" flavor. Although I'm not comparing the flavor between the two, just the intensity. They seem to burn pretty even and I can fit 12-14 inside of a 100's cigarette case nicely. The smoke's body is nice, a good draw, but I notice the draw getting tighter near the end. The smoke stays pretty cool, but warms about half way. Close to the end was pretty hot and left a tongue bite that hurts to even drink immediately afterwards, but no big deal for me. The smoke is mildly sweet on the lips and dies a little after half with the flavor during that hotter draw as mentioned above. For me, these are best during late days or nights around sunset or later. I prefer relaxing outside in a cool climate. I can't comment much on the duration, it varies for me. Usually it lasts more than 15 for me, however, I really do relax with my smoke. Sometimes I don't finish an entire cigar or cigarillo is one sitting and reignite later. I know I'm a little on the value side, but I think these are nice for the current price and quantity if you're looking for a mildly sweet flavor and aroma. But, keep in mind that they are indeed mild and after half way, there's usually some loss in that. I don't like a very distinctive flavor everyday, but I plan on trying the Cherry. Although I suspect the flavor to be mild. As soon as it's back in stock. Or, I may try the Captain Black Cherry Cigarillos.
