Italian Estates: Ascorti New Dear Calabash (I.A.A.P.C.) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-32284
If you're familiar with Radice's Underwood finish, the New Dear from Ascorti should look pretty familiar. This particular style of deeply carved finish was a signature of Caminetto back during the Radice-Ascorti era, and both Guiseppe and Luigi simply carried it on after they each went independent. The extra-craggy texture is found here this rather whimsical Calabash design that features a protruding, mushroom-like rim and a generously deep chamber within. This particular example is unique in that it was both made exclusively for the Tinder Box, and that it remains in unsmoked condition after all of its years of ownership.-Truett Smith
