    Crap.. not anymore.

    I had the pleasure of smoking a bowl of this a few days ago. Man is that stuff good!!! I found drinking black coffee complimented the smoke a great deal.

    I've just got a source to Penzance but you'll have to call the guy. PM me if you want the info. I just ordered an 8oz bag. I'm not sure how many more he has.

    Now just if I can get some stonehaven.

    I've never had the opportunity to purchase Penzance until now so I can't wait to try it.

    I was lucky enough to pick up a couple bags at my local B&M the other day so I don't need to order more for a while. Hopefully a few here got some.

    I wish I could find Stonehaven. I've been striking out everywhere as well. I too was let down. I tried smoking pipes within 5 minutes of the available notice and bam already gone.

    I can only help out with Penzance.

    I hear that. I'm thinking I may take a bag and put it up on the Briarbid. Couldn't hurt to try.

    Heck I may as well put the guy's info here. I don't know what kind of quantity he has but I do know that what he has is the 8oz size bags of Penzance.

    Just don't let it sit around and "age" before you try it. IMO, Penzance is one of the few blends that is actually much better fresh. Unfortunately, it's also impossible to always have a fresh tin around, what with the scarcity these days.

    Thanks RM. I'm definitely going to rip into that bag as soon as I get it. I've already got my pipe picked out for it. lol

    I'll be putting whatever I don't smoke into my usual mason jars.

    So interesting how our tastes are so different. Personally, I don't like Penzance.

    Didn't someone post that he had a lot of Penzance he was willing to trade? I know I read such a post recently; maybe it was on another forum.

    Anyway, good hunting everyone!

    I don't recall Penzance for trade, but someone did mention -- just before the Trades section was eliminated -- that he had "pounds" of Stonehaven to trade. But my PM to that member never got a response, so I don't know what's going on there. (Maybe it was just a bluff to stir folks up!)

    For someone new to this forum, care to comment on why the Trades forum was eliminated? Was it causing a lot of drama? Everyone here has been so cool I find it hard to believe anyone would do someone else dirty.

    The owner of this site was advised there were legal issues, which is the main reason trade posts were eliminated from PM Forums. There's a whole thread here, if you want more info, but that's basically why.

    Trades can be listed on a sister site, http://www.briarbid.com

    Trades can also be done privately, such as using PMs here, Emails and phone calls.

    No Bob, the guy probably ran out, like all vendors do, in 3 minutes and got tired of replying to the hundreds of PMs after he sold all the Stonehaven he had to Harris

    Ha ha I also tried contacting him but I was too slow and he said it was already all gone.

    I'm going to keep going on my hunt for Stonehaven.

    I'd love to read what you think of Penzance, once your shipment arrives and you've had the chance to try a few bowls.

    Both Penzance and Stonehaven are in stock right now at Connecticut Valley Tobacconist. But he's charging $58.95 for 8 ounces of Penzance and $59.95 for 8 ounces of Stonehaven. Too steep for my wallet.

    I have a small sample of Penzance and I don't see what everyone raves about. Its a nice tobacco, but I'd smoke Mississippi River any day of the week over Penzance. Same goes for StoneHaven. Another nice tobacco, but I think its over hyped as well. To each their own though, so if you can find it enjoy it.

    This is at the top of my 'must try' list and no one ever seems to get the 50gm tin in stock, bloody annoying!

    MMMM Penzance. Bob I ended up buying another 8oz bag I love it. I thought the Latakia wasn't over powering at all but very smooth. Just in general a top notch tobacco. Now one of my favorites.

    Good to hear, Fitzy!

    Now, if only we Penzance fans had a cool monicker like those Black House people. . .

    Maybe we should be the Pirates of Penzance.

    There are some folks on the forum with art backgrounds.

    Maybe one of them could create something.
