    Smoke them side by side, you'll get your answer....... In two separate pipes, of course.

    I have noticed this for awhile now and am glad someone else does too!! I always recommend Balkan Flake when someone is looking for a Penzance match. One of the reasons I am well stocked with Balkan Flake!!!

    Well there is a difference a negligible one, the only big disparity I can see is in the price.

    I enjoy both of these blends immensely. I find that Penzance has an excellent "buttery" smoke, while Balkan Flake has an excellent Virginia tobacco taste. Room enough in my cellar for plenty of both.
