English Estates: Dunhill Amber Root (5104) (2017) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33128
Dunhill's taller straight Bulldog rendition is this "04" design, as opposed to the more squat and broad style of the English marque's "17" version. Often times, the "04" has a more slender and sleek shaping style; however, this Group 5 example exudes stout muscularity. Furthermore, the overall length has been abbreviated compared to previous iterations we've received, likening this piece to some of Dunhill's Stubby designs. With plenty of chamber and plenty of substance, it's a versatile pipe with no shortage of presence or chamber capacity.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Truett Smith
