"Occhio di Pernice" is a special stamping used by Castello to mark briars with especially good displays of birdseye. So what should we find on this Occhio di Pernice Poker but... plenty of especially good birdseye. Well, it might not be a surprise, but it is at least a very pleasant non-surprise. That is, after all, the kind of thing that establishes a tradition and respect of the sort the Castello marque enjoys.
