Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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

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

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

I received an email notification, I go in minutes later to place the order and it is already sold out. How disappointing.

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
Balanced and refined

Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
As others have said, why send an alert if there is no possibility to actually order the product? After pondering, and getting over my initial annoyance, I'm revising. Penzance is a quality English, whose reputation is well deserved.
Brilliant Tobacco

By: Nate A.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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

By: Billy P.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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!

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

Well Balanced English
July 31, 2015
By: Daniel P.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 8oz
This is a well-balanced English that is a little less sweet than Quiet Nights. It's absurd that this blend has led people to question the integrity of those that work for this site.
Nonsense
July 31, 2015
By: Matthew S.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 8oz
Sold out in less than 30 seconds. The employees of Smokingpipes.com bought it. Completely unethical thing to do and something that is going to make me question continuing to buy from this store.
Shenanigans!

My guess on this tobacco

By: Tom D.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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

Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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.
Creamy
October 14, 2014
By: Pierre T.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 8oz
Extra creamy smoke, latakia is very present but does not over-dominate the VA's. I wouldn't care if this blend wasn't hyped, it would still be my favorite, regardless of "rarity" and "brand name". If you can somehow get your hands... Read More

Hyped

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.

Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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

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

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
May 29, 2012
By: Ted S.
Product: Esoterica Penzance 2oz
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.
