Anyone using Kampot peppercorns?

Just read this article and thought I'd ask for opinions before placing an order:

Don't recall seeing them before. Penzey's doesn't carry them but Google turned up several sources.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

I used it, but I was not that such impressed. Maybe I should use a better pepper mill, as I only have a Scandinavian pepper crusher. I read that is helpful to grind the Kampot pepper very fine.

Anyway all the german/swiss foodblogger love Kampot peppercorns.

I was given a 5 kg gift of these in Cambodia from a family that grows them and is affiliated with an organization I work with there. I really liked them. Very pungent and complex. But I should say I am by no means an expert on peppercorns. We are now on the last set of that batch. This post is timely as we need to decide what to replace it with. Or I need to get back to Cambodia!
