Esoterica Penzance

**Limit 1 Bag Per Customer**
Penzance is a modern legend. It's so popular that when we receive it, it's literally all sold within an hour. This is a sturdy crumble cake with a good amount of Latakia supported by choice Turkish and Oriental leaf and wonderful, sweet Virginia. The tobacco is firmly pressed and slice for convenient preparation.

Penzance, legendary for it's scarcity and for its wonderful taste.
Penzance, legendary for it's scarcity and for its wonderful taste. The hype around this blend is not misplaced. Opening the tin you get a smell somewhere in between BBQ sauce and a campfire. The taste however reveals a masterfully blended smooth sweet and delicious smoke. Expect all parts to be in harmony with one another and to create one of the finest pipe tastes I have had the pleasure of smoking. Downsides are that this blend requires some drying time and its exceeding difficult to find, but if you can find it and enjoy English style blends you will enjoy this blend.

Quality Tobacco...A Great Blend
I first tried Penzance just over 2 years ago and wasn't impressed at first. It is an acquired taste and not everyone will like it. It has a sweet scent that translates into a smooth flavor that pops up in almost every puff, no doubt that it is aided by the Oriental leaf. Latakia is not the offensively smokey type but a gentle kind like barbecue done is a smoker. Savory and quite enjoyable. This blend comes together with a year of age and opens up more once you pop it in to a mason jar for a week or so with fresh air. Overall, it is a very worthy smoke for me. Hype or not, these tobaccos are made from incredible quality leaf and they do not disappoint, especially when you find the perfect pipe for them.

What can be said that's already been said?
i love this tobacco. I love it with a passion. I've been smoking it for the past 12 years ever since I started smoking pipes. Hard to get, annoying to find but for me it's worth it. It's one of my top 3 tobaccos of all time.
Customer Testimonials
Scarcity creates desire, however, there is something to be said in regards to its "sold out" nature everywhere you look. Its a hit from some but for me, I thought it was over-rated and over-priced for what it was. There are so many tobaccos that are just as good or even better, I cant justify this blend anymore unless its more readily available in the future. Kind of bland. A good pack and burn, but thats pretty much it.
This is a fantastic tobacco that is over priced and almost impossible to get. As much as I like it I have a tendency to simply ignore it. I feel the same way about Stonehaven also. These fabulous blends are nice to talk about and review, but, if I'm not able to obtain them I simply move on. After all there are many great tobaccos that rival them and are more reasonably priced and always available. Because of this I really don't miss not being able to get it.
