    Ugh was about to order and then saw that shipping is more expensive than the tobacco. They can keep it, it's just not worth it for me with limit 1 per customer. If someone wants only 4oz and is willing to share with me, I'd be more than happy about a PM

    The shipping defaults to a more expensive type but you can select a cheaper option in that same window. I ordered 8oz Penzance and 250g of BBF and the shipping was $8.75.

    Just to let folks know, Iwan Ries is still showing availability for this. If you've been on the hunt -- or if it's already a favorite -- they still got 'em.

    I was in The Briar Shoppe in Houston, TX this past weekend. Spent way too much money in there, but they have supply of Penzace on hand. Not sure if they will ship but if anyone is local its there.

    Thanks to you guys I was able to finally get some. It's been about 8 years since I enjoyed Penzance. Back around 2004, I had a tin, and really liked it, so I picked up an 8 oz. bag. The bag wasn't nearly as good as the tinned stuff, so I smoked about half of it, and cellared the rest. About a year or so later, opened the jar, and found it to be much better, although still not the quality of the tinned. Enjoyed it off an on, and when I finally finished it, wanted to order some more, only to find out it had been discovered (is that when Hobie got into it?) and the supply, which had previous been readily available, had dried up. Been seeking some off and on ever since. Again, thanks to you guys, I will get to re-evaluate it and see how memory matches reality.

    EDIT: guess I should note that I ordered it shortly after this thread was posted, and today rec'd notice of shipment.

    I've said this several times here, so I hope you guys will forgive a repeat: I haven't noticed a difference between tinned and bagged Penzance. But I have noticed a distinct difference between aged and fresh. To me, the fresh is better; there are flavors in the smoke that disappear after some time in the cellar. (How much time? Haven't experimented enough to know.) So it's possible, checotah, that your bag had some age on it and your tin did not.

    Wow, that shows out of stock again already.

    I'm amazed this stuff has become as popular as it has. There was a time when it didn't sell very well at all. And So To Bed is, in my opinion, the best of the Esoterica blends, always felt Penzance was pleasant enough, but not so as I'd want to hunt it down. Never cared for the crumble cake cut, and it has a sort of bitter note in there somewhere the put me off just a little.

    Actually, they had stock for more than 24 hours. Which, I guess is a relatively short time. But everyone here had a full day to have a shot at it.

    I got the in-stock alert email about 35 minutes ago.

    Someone needs to just buy the rights to the receipe or something and amp up production. This just doesn't seem to work out with the crappy supply they are currently putting out. If I have to hunt for it... screw you, I'm not doing that.

    Although I'm sure it's not as hard to come by if everyone just called a hand full of pipe shops that don't sell online.

    Still not doing it...

    By the way Smokingpipes says "We only have -28 on hand*" for Penzance 8oz bags. There's gonna be trouble...

    They seem to have 343 50gr tins of Full Virginia Flake by the way if anyone wants one or two.

    Then their alert system is definitely broken!

    This thread was started yesterday (Wednesday) morning. I was surprised to see that IW was still showing stock later in the day, so I bumped this thread to make sure everyone noticed it.

    I never got my notice however my man Ed over at Payless has a few bags. You'll need to call him directly 866-747-3747.

    Tell him Don F sent you. I had posted this previously in another post on Penzance a week or 2 ago but very few actually ordered.

    I am talking about smokingpipes, see my first post. After seeing IR was out (see earlier posts) I just wanted to bump this with in stock alert from smokingpipes instead of starting a new thread.
