    Sounds like it has latakia in it. Is that the case?

    I do enjoy Penzance, have quite a bit cellared. But I find since it is so difficult to obtain, smokers seem to consider it that much better.

    Yes, Latakia is present, throughout. If you hate lats, you won't like Penzance. BUT, if you're ok or are "lat-curious" this is probably considered a benchmark in Lat-Land.

    Yeah, my Latakia phase has well and truly passed.

    I was curious about this blend because of that "hard to find" status, but I found if you look a little, it isn't that hard. I've found a pound and know of places that have it in stock. I also think it fits the hype for me; I really enjoy its smooth, smokey flavor.

    As a new pipe smoker I've reaped huge rewards from buying tobies with huge hype; i have a helluva time trying to decide what to smoke next.
