Just hope I can get one in my shopping cart before the supplies run out again.

November 14, 2015
By: Adam s.
I revisited this blend after 4 months of it resting in a mason jar... it made a difference to me.. i still get a traditional english smell, leather , raisin, hay, latakia... but with a smoothe and slightly refined pungent quality... smoking it i get ... Read More

It's frustrating to be informed that something is in stock i.e. Balkan Sobranie and now Penzance to log in and get a whammy Sold Out - Out of Stock. Maybe Smoking Pipes should order a real big amount that would stay in stock for at least a month, kn... Read More
My Top favorite!
October 18, 2015
By: Anthony R.
After a 25 yr. hiatus, I started smoking a pipe again. In the old days I fell in love with Penzance. It was a LOT easier o get in those days. Again, it's still my favorite. It is a hell of a lot harder to get now. I got lucky last time. In between ... Read More

Sorry about the repeat. I can't delete this copy. So, ditto.
It's not a conspiracy

This is a comment about Smoking Pipes and Penzance. I called after receiving the email alert and was able to score 2 tins. I have been interacting with Smoking Pipes for the last two years. They have always been ethical and professional. I was just a... Read More
Sold out

Caleb, I would love to rate the tobacco, but for me it tastes like a zero because that is what I got.
Sold out

By: Steven W.
I received an email notification, I go in minutes later to place the order and it is already sold out. How disappointing.
for the people who can't use a rating system properly...

This is to review the PRODUCT, not the service provided. On that note: Penzance is very unique blend that's worth picking up when you can find it. it always reminds me of BBQ when i smell the tin note. *Can you guys please delete the absurd "re... Read More

As others have said, why send an alert if there is no possibility to actually order the product?
Brilliant Tobacco
October 16, 2015
By: Nate A.
Why some are giving bad reviews based on their inability to buy it, I'll never understand. It's a tobacco worthy of your time to seek it out. I get an email and respond immediately and always get it. Win some, lose others. That said, it's a brilliant... Read More
Out of touch with the customer
October 16, 2015
By: Joseph D.
Why do you send alerts when it is out of stock? From the other reviews I can't imagine why you intentionally frustrate your customers. Perhaps it is because you don't like us?
Horrible Customer Service
October 16, 2015
By: Billy P.
The email alerts for this item are, as the person before me wrote, a joke. I responded within 15 seconds of receiving the email, and it was still out of stock, which means the email alerts are false. I don't think anyone could respond to the email an... Read More
Email alert is a joke!
October 16, 2015
By: Brian M.
What's the point in emailing me alerts if you do not have it in Stock? If you send me an alert saying it's in then it better be in. It's only been a few minutes since i got the email. Now, have some integrity and make this right, no more LIES smok... Read More
My guess on this tobacco
July 31, 2015
By: Tom D.
There must be a better way to allocate Penzance. I'll bet its the same people who are able to respond within 30 seconds of the email alert. Rest of us have to work. More and more Smoking Pipes is demonstrating to me that it has lost its touch with... Read More
My second favorite tobacco
March 12, 2015
By: Gennaro F.
Charming, quant and, full of rich flavor. I am a latakia lover (no burley for me) so this flake is a perfect second to my FAVORITE blend Balkan Saiseini.
Have a problem

By: Angelo C.
It is always out of stock,why?I have been waiting for it for nearly 5 years,but I've never tasted it yet.I feel so disappointed.

Hyped tobacco, with all the youtube and tobacco reviews I read and seen, thinking this tobacco is the holy grail of tobaccos... have 8oz of this stuff and would trade off in a heart beat.
Nice change of pace...
August 08, 2012
By: Don M.
I would recommend this blend to people who (as I do) tend to stay primarily with Virginia flakes. Most Latakia blends call to my mind what it might be like to lick the bottom of an ashtray and, further, to dislike the experience. Penzance, however,... Read More
Excellent tobacco
June 02, 2012
By: Eric N.
A unique blend presented in a classy little tin. Tastes of brisket and smells like incense, it's hard not to like this stuff.
hard to come by
June 02, 2012
By: Marc c.
picked up a tin on ebay. it was worth the wait to find it. smooth from start to finish. gets better and stronger as you smoke it down.was so good that i picked up 2 more tins on ebay. going to wait a year before trying a new tin to see how it ages.
Super delicious, although over-hyped

Yes, it's hard to come by. But it's almost as good as it's reputation promises. Dark, full-flavored, slightly sweet, though savory, this is certainly the best Germain has to offer in their Esoterica line.
