English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (1111) (1984) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-29972
This Dunhill Lovat bears a stamp you don't see everyday: "1111." A Group 1 rendition of the English marque's archetypal Lovat, this piece from 1984 is just shy of five inches long and boasts the traditional proportions and handsome shaping that has helped make Dunhill the recognized, revered, and collected brand it is today. For those interested in the more petite iterations of the brand's iconic shapes, this is a must-have, especially as these smaller Group sizes are fewer and further between than, say, Groups 3, 4, and 5.
The highest honor for a Dunhill pipe is to receive the prestigious Root Briar appellation. Root Briars have been coveted by pipe smokers ever since they first debuted in 1931, due to the fact that each pipe must boast briar completely free of even the most minor of blemishes. Dunhill has the strictest of standards and expectations for quality with all of their pipes, and so any block of briar that comes to bear the Root Briar stamp must indeed be superlative.-Truett Smith
