Italian Estates: Castello Aristocratica Great Line Bent Dublin (1982) (40) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-36400
Castello is already known for aging their briar for 10 years before fashioning their normal fare of smokers — it's one of the reasons so many people are drawn to and fall in love with Castello pipes and their smoking qualities. For their 1982 pipes, though, the Italian marque set aside these blocks of briar back in 1982, affording these pipes over three decades' worth of aging and curing.
This particular bent Dublin is bold and very much Italian neoclassic in its shaping. The tapered shank and stem transition into a bold, flaring, deep-chambered bowl that's crowned with a rim of generous plateau. Not only is it made from that old, 1982 briar, but this piece also wears the nostalgic Aristocratica finish — the deep, mahogany stain and dark, fumed rim hearkens back to the style of pipes that Carlo Scotti, the founder of Castello, would fashion and gift to close friends and family members. Now, that same style and presentation is offered to you and is a true necessity in any collection of fine Castello pipes, especially given its increased stature: something evidenced by its "Great Line" stamping.-Truett Smith
