I'm back in Kenya now, so I'm afraid I won't be selling anything for at least a year.

I've never tried Penzance and odds are I never will. At the going prices, it's way too rich for my blood.

It is what it is I guess. Like I said, I did get some in a trade here. I did like it a lot. I was just beginning to wrap my taste buds around it when I ran out. You know what I'm talking about how you start to get to know a blend? At first it can be good or bad or just ok. But in time you get a taste for it. You start to be able to pick out flavors in it? Then I find out how hard it is to get ahold of it. Two different pipe shops in ct never heard of it, and one the guy had and laughed when I asked for it.

That is pretty much the equivalent of asking someone "Hey, could I get 6 dilithium crystals for my TIE Fighter"

I think they would be totally baffled by the mixed metaphor.
Unless you were asking a rocket surgeon ...

It's not a mixed metaphor... Corran Horn was using them in an experimental TIE Destroyer in which he was huntin Klingons. Hey, just because it's not Canon does not mean it's not true. Laughing

Actually, TRI lithium crystal is used to focus the photon stream that converts matter into energy in the TIE fighters. Alas, as it was long ago in a galaxy far, far away, that tech never made it Milky Way Side. Only in the not too distant future will Zephram Cochran figure out how to manufacture DI lithium crystals and figure out how to use them to control the energy reaction from combining matter and antimatter in a controlled way, as to create a time/space bubble around a vessel so it could move through space faster than light speed..

But, of course, I state the obvious..............

Lol. I didn't figure it would be. I almost pulled the trigger but I have $67 to last until Friday. Fixed income and all. Evil or Very Mad
I'd have gifted it away anyway.. $25 for $200 worth of goodwill is a cheap investment. Lol.

I hope OP got some. I can't tell how long that took to sell out since I switched time zones and I'm no good at military time either.

Edit: Maybe it'll pop up at other shops soon. Keep your eyes peeled if you're in the 'I really do like it' camp.

The 2 oz tins just now sold out, so they lasted well over 24 hours.

Penzance doesn't interest to me much...I follow the rule that if something is very trendy overly loved its probably not any good as 99.9 & of the world is basically retarded. What makes this blend any better than Commonwealth or Squadron Leader?

Glad you asked. For me, it's a taste thing. It changes through the smoke, from smoky to sour to dark and earthy. Not always in the same order either. It's also very easy to work with prep wise. It behaves very well in most pipes, regardless of size. I got enough to start to get a good appreciation for it and then I ran out. I figured it would be easy enough to get... Wrong

I have been chasing Stonehaven and Penzance for over 5 years, without being successful; then I said Fuc* it and stopped looking about 6 months ago.

Earlier this week, I was offered some Penzance. I grabbed 2 X 8oz bags and 4 X 50g tins...

Funny how things work out, sometimes.

Maybe I'll get some Stonehaven soon?

How about a Ramsgate rant? I have an 8 oz. bag purchased recently that I detest. Two or three bowlfuls missing. Free, or almost. Send me five bucks for shipping, or even less. I just don't care. CONUS only. First PM, etc. I'll get back to you sometime this month.
