Irish Estates: Peterson St. Patrick's Day 2020 (X220) (Fishtail) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-004-8634
The "X220" bent Billiard features some of Peterson's classic shaping cues, such as a thick shank and hearty proportions, but it substitutes a bowl that tapers subtly toward the rim in place of one marked by the Irish marque's conventionally upright and tubular aesthetic. It's a considerably robust, full-bodied take on the timeless form and is among the largest of Peterson's bent Billiard renditions. That said, while the bold shaping results in a handful of briar, such boldness and substance is balanced out by a generously bent shank and stem combination.
Alongside the Sherlock Holmes Collection and annual Christmas and Pipe of the Year lines, Peterson's perennial St. Patrick's Day series is one of the marque's most collectible offerings, marked by a color palette and aesthetic unique to the specific year, yet always with a distinctly Irish motif. The 2020 edition celebrates the limited line's 23rd consecutive release, and this year's pipes feature Peterson's signature emerald stain covering an extra-craggy sandblast — thanks to the Sallynoggin factory's updated, artisanal sandblasting set-up — and paired to a bright nickel army mount. This is a pipe that appreciates Peterson's heritage and esteemed quality, adding modern finishing techniques to the firm's iconic, timeless shaping style.-Jeffery Sitts
