What’s in a name?

Penzance: Ancient market town and "Capital" of West Cornwall. Home of the "Pirates" of Gilbert and Sullivan – tourist and vacation centre of the Lands End peninsula – land of cliffs, moors, secluded beaches and spectacular scenery.

Penzance: A wonderfully complex secret recipe of the finest Virginia, choice Turkish and Orientals and Cyprian Latakia, all hand blended together, hard pressed and broad cut into thick flakes. Long matured and easily crumbled to facilitate pipe filling.

Well, guess which of the two we'll be discussing today.

I bought an ounce of Penzance about a week ago from a local tobacconist (The Briar Patch, Arden Fair Mall, Upstairs near Sears. 1689 Arden Way, Suite 2006
Sacramento, CA 95815 http://www.briarpatch.biz/). I was looking for an English blend, and after reading about Penzance on TobaccoReviews.com (http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/), I decided to splurge.

What can I say? I thought the salesman was exaggerating when he said he smoked at least one bowl of Penzance a day. But my first ounce is all but gone, and so yesterday I went back and bought a 2 ounc tin. I won't say I've become addicted, but Penzance is available in an 8 ounce package, and it is getting close to payday…

Penzance. If you enjoy smoking a pipe, you owe it to yourself to taste this wonderful mixture. It's a bit on the pricey side, but you can find pretty good deals on the internet.

Penzance: Don't leave home without it!

    If you frequent the Briar Patch you have most likely seen me in the store enjoying a bowl of Penzance, it is a wonderful blend. If you enjoy Penzance you will also enjoy one of my new favorites Dark Twist. Give it a try some time, you won’t be dissapointed.
