    Hi guys,

    So just opened my first ever tin of Penzance. It smells really funky like rotten wood and peat. Is this normal? I like the smell just never experienced anything like it.

    C'mon, Phil, this scaredy cat stuff is unbecoming. Light it up, for crying out loud.

    Pez... stinky, overrated, over-flavored, under-supplied, rusted tins and gooey. Probably topped with creosote and scotch barrel scrapings. Unexplained white spots and streaks. Madness. Crazy, crazy stuff. Why... you might as well smoke... Stonehaven!

    It's OK. I rarely keep more than five pounds in the cellar. Damn white streaks.

    LOL, great thread. Nothing like Penzance for a taste of Scotland!! Goes great with a malt whisky.
