This neoclassical bent Bulldog is large, but not large enough to earn a "Maxima" stamp. The shaping is bold and very Pesaro, as we can expect from Ser Jacopo. The rustication is tasteful and does not blur the lines of the piece. There is enough chamber for a long, flavorful smoke, while still retaining enough thickness to the walls to keep the briar cool in the hand (which is where it begs to be cradled).
