grouchydog,
check your messages. I'd be interested in talking to your local B&M. Still trying to build up my cellar.

Mmm... Penzance. I'd sell my left nut to buy a 8 oz. bag of Penzance for 35 bucks!

After almost 62 years I've become quite attached to them, so to speak. I mean, what else would you scratch in the morning or at a traffic light??? ...

This one came in last week from a B&M on the west coast for a friend's birthday next month. Under $30. Call around, it's out there and fairly plentiful.

While I am generally sceptical of the "overrated"... Penzance and Opus X cigars are two delights that truly live up to their hype!

Glad someone tied in The Pirates of Penzance and singing. G&S are happy in operetta heaven.
Anyone know if castrati regularly performed in G&S productions? That would really tie it all in.

Castrati were pretty well gone from the scene by the time G&S were creating their Operettas. There were still a few in Italy, with one living long enough to actually record a few sides in the early 20th century. Barbarous practice, well gotten rid of.
