This classic straight Billiard, the "128" is on the larger end of the spectrum of such shapes made by Savinelli. It is overall taller and longer than the "106" and "104", and much more stout than the rather gracile "702". The Miele series continues the series of "flavours", which include the "la Chocolat" and "la Caffe", sporting an acrylic stem reminiscent of the honey comb structure, and the briar finished in warm walnut stain. The bowl is treated with a nectar extract to simulate honey, an old trick to easily cake the naked briar, and also gives the initial smokes a sweet aroma. To go along with the pipe is a tamper in the shape of a honey dipper.
