I love Pembroke but that doesn’t mean that you will. Dry it before you smoke it, if ya decide to buy some. Pembroke is one of the more easily obtainable Esoterica’s. My local B&M often has it in stock.
I would say be mindful of any advice the local seller has for you. Last fall my local B&M had a big drop they kept in the back for their better customers. I had just gotten back into the hobby and had visited them a dozen times in a little over a month. They recommended I buy 5 different bags. They suggested I buy: Stonehaven, Brighton, Dorchester, Dunbar and Penzance. After listening to them describe all of them, I bought three (budget constraints), guess which I didn't buy? Yep the Stonehaven and Penzance I left there, gone the next day. Now I really. really enjoy Brighton and Dorchester, not so much Dunbar. My take is if it sounds like something you would like, BUY IT.
I say buy them. If you don't like them, you can do what most sellers did at this years Chicago Show...come to the show and sell them but price them so high it feels like the buyer is also getting a prostate exam.
