I came home yesterday and was excited to see my clay tavern pipes had arrived from Penn Valley. After examining the product and reading over the literature that came with the pipes, I decided to spend the remainder of the evening with my wife and son and would tackle the new clays another day....

well, that night my wife says to me while going to bed, "oh, yeah, you got a letter today. I think it's from one of your pipe brothers, it stinks." Wouldnt you know, I went downstairs, retrieved said envelope, and it STUNK REAL GOOD!

Not a name on the return address, not a letter or even a note to be found on the inside, but I am 99% sure I know who sent it. A healthy dose of Stonehaven, all by itself. Words can't describe how generous the people here on BOB can be. I will not forget it. Receiving that tobacco, out of the blue, all bc I mentioned I never had it, trumped just about everything else. As for the smoke... rich, deep, dark, foreboding, decadent... I actually am not poetic enough to give it justice.

To the anonymous brother, I thank you and will do my best to pay it forward.

Nate

I have been fortunate enough to run into a few samples of penzance. It's good. I like it a lot. I smoke mostly Virginia's, so it's a nice change every once in a while.
