English Estates: Dunhill Tanshell (5103) (2009)

Product Number: 004-002-7281

While I don't know how production compared between Tanshells and Shell Briars in years past, these days the ratio seems pretty steep indeed. In our archives (of pipes received new from Dunhill) even smooth finishes like the Dress, Bruyere, and Amber Root show up in numbers several times over that of the Tanshell. Admittedly that strikes me as a bit odd, given that the simple, very subtly warm Tanshell does make quite a good pairing with classic English shaping.
