    You really don't need to call, smokingpipes is the only etailer I know of that actually has an updating inventory system. Its too bad they only have the 8oz bags again. My tad budget has been cut to the bone and I can't justify dropping dough on 8oz of something I've never tried.

    They update as soon as something is sold. You can feel out how much of something they have by starting with a ridiculously large quantity for your order, then the space next to it in your cart will tell you how many they actually have on hand. For instance there are only 8 bags of Penzance and 3 bags of Stonehaven left.

    Not totally, Deck. I got 2-lbs of each and if you want to try some amount less than 8-oz you let me know.

    Puff is already sending me some samples and you're the third person to offer. This place is great. :)

    Well, since you have a nice fresh batch I'll be glad to dispose of the old stuff you have. I wouldn't want you smoking old stale tobacco. Hahahahaha!

    I wish I had not missed out on that. I need to pick up more Stonehaven and Penzance. Good score you made.

    I hope our members got in on the ordering. It went fast and I know there were several that didn't the last it came around. I've checked a number of places and smokingpipes was the only one who had any this time around.

    Could someone share what Stonehaven and penz is like? I am pretty new and while I have been able to try a fair amount of samples, I am curious to what this stuff is like? I keep reading about how good it is. Wish I would have seen this post earlier today :roflmao:

    They seem too complicated for any easy description. Stonehaven is a burley/virginia crumble cake and Penznace is a flake blend with just about everything under the sun. For a more detailed description see tobaccoreviews.com .

    If you want to try more tobaccos consider participating in the newbie sampler.

    Definitely checkout tobaccoreviews.com but actually,

    Stonehaven is the Flaked, and

    Penzance is the Krumble Kake.

    Either way Stonehaven or Penzance by any other name or form would still be kickass 'baccy!

    So it is. But that reminds me: do you know what happened to smoker's haven krumble kake, or smokers haven blends in general? They're website has been really empty for quite a while.

    Edit: Just answered my own question. I didn't realize SH just imports tobacco and puts their name on it. I was looking in the wrong place because I thought it was a house blend like H&H.

    Thanks for the advice. I will be sure to check out the reviews. Hopefully at some point I can be quick enough to find a retailer with some in stock.

    The heads up here are very helpful, but if you check the major etailers frequently like most of us with PAD and TAD you'll get lucky and be drooling over some fresh hand made or creating $1000 fantasy TAD orders when the shipments come in.
