Smoking Penzance in a Celtic 69. Thankfully, there are still some hotels in Seattle that allow smoking in their guest rooms! Earlier, tried Penzance partially broken up in an Aran 69, but the draw was too light and there was some lip bite. So for my second bowl, I tried it fully rubbed out in the Celtic 69, and the draw is much better! Very full-flavored indeed! Other English blends I've tried have reminded me of a thick steak bbq'ed on an open grill. This is more like an elephant steak bbq'ed over a bush fire! It's simply that intense. Appearance certainly lives up to its billing of being a mottled flake. My flakes even had some bloom on them, though how flakes would develop bloom is beyond me! Tin aroma is definitely intriguing, holding forth the promise of a complex, manly smoke. The flavor immediately asserts itself, right from the charring light! This is one of those blends that I can light using a zippo, and it won't matter as you can hardly taste anything else other than the toby! This is definitely the richest English blend I have yet tried to date!
