I'm not a big fan of Penzance . I like it but won't go out of my way to obtain it- mostly due to it being a crumble cake. I do like English/Balkan style blends that are rich tasting and full, with a Penzance-like taste profile . I smoke more of this style than other tobaccos. I'm old enough to have smoked and loved Sobranie white in it's multiple iterations, 759, the great Sullivan Powell blends, Dunhill (Murray and pre-Murray) and other classics. Zen Pants (get the Penzance reference?) and another Byron blend called Mountains of Madness are very similar in style and quality to those old blends. Mountains of Madness is even richer than Zen Pants. Superb now, but with some age, they may well be even better.
