If you're familiar with Ardor Giants, you know what to expect here. If you aren't familiar with them, let's just say that they more than live up to their name. Put simply, this is a massive briar - the block that goes into a single one of these could have made several pipes of quite decent size. It isn't all just about quantity though. There are good reasons why Ardor is the go-to marque for so many aficionados of extra-large briars, great smoking qualities and the Roveras' knack for rendering even shapes this large with a graceful style being not the least of them.
