English Estates: Dunhill Amber Root Brandy (5) (2002) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-8353
Not only an unsmoked Dunhill Amber Root from 2002, with a cross and birdseye which could shake the metaphorical Pillars of Heaven; a Group 5 Quaint - and a very good sized one at that. Personally, I love Quaints. Unlike the modern HTXL (which I also am quite fond of), where an artisan is given free range with a fresh block, a Quaint comes about as a result of something going sideways during the production of a standard shape, and ("Here I come to save the Daaaaayyy")
an artisan steps in to salvage a potential disaster. Those "salvages" often result in amazingly handsome forms, sometimes shapes which I vastly prefer to their original intended outcome. Yep, pretty much like this reinterpreted straight Brandy.
