    Penzance is over rated IMHO. Good, but over rated. Do I have a pound cellared? Yes, but the reason why is just to say I have a pound cellared.

    I think it's over-rated simply because it's quite unique. Most blends you can pretty easily find a near-identical stand in for, but Penzance is pretty much unlike any other tobacco I've tried.

    I neither like Penzance, nor the Pirates of Penzance, (nor do I like musicals in general). Actually, Penzance is just okay, but I don't get what all the fuss is about. I have always wanted to try QN--sounds like I should.

    Just recently got my hands on some GLP Lagonda and man, that stuff really sings.

    Lagonda is a favorite of mine.

    She's not home and doesn't return calls but once a year. Forget her. Have you tried a Russian bride? You can get 10, and they're always available.

    Maybe I'm missing something in regard to the Penzance I've tried. Wrong pipe, or moisture levels, just not sure why it was so bland. I look forward to getting a fresh tin in the future on one of my back-orders. Perhaps it will be a different experience.
