I've been lucky enough(or had nice enough friends) to try a lot of them. Out of Penzance, Stonehaven, Dorchester, Tilbury, And So To Bed, Margate, Pembroke.. the only ones I liked ok were Tilbury and Stonehaven. Stonehaven was sort of a finicky pain in the butt, and would only deliver if it was right in the goldilocks zone. Tilbury reminded me a lot of Pegasus, but in a shag cut. Come to think of it.. I haven't really been wowed enough by anything Germain's makes (Special Lat Flake, Plum Cake Mixture, Sobranie).. don't get me wrong they are all smokeable/decent, just not worth the huge pain in the butt to get.Thelonious monkfish wrote: ↑Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:50 amI've had a few bowls on Penzance, it's nice but I'm not big on Latakia. Have not had anything else from them and at this point don't want to say I hate the brand but that I seem to abhor even bothering with them. Almost glad I don't know what I'm missing as I doubt it's worth the frustration or price. Good luck, I've given up on them so that's one less person to compete with, not sure it matters as the real obstacle is those with a lifetime supply that keep bulking up. Godspeed.
I'd smoke Lancer's Slices over Penzance any day if I were looking for a Latakia flake.
