Rattray's: Highland (11)
Product Number: 002-599-2255
Rattray's "11" shape is a thoroughly traditional take on the classic Zulu. While it exudes grace and poise, this rendition is also a tad more exaggerated than most Zulu interpretations: The downward taper of the Dublin bowl is more dramatic, the transition is more sweeping in gesture than the norm, and the shank-and-stem combination highlights its implied movement with a lens-shaped cross section. Even with these more exaggerated cues, Rattray's "11" still retains the sleek sinuosity and elegant fluidity of the traditional Zulu, displaying a beautifully flowing profile.
The Highland series presents one of the most vivid color palettes within Rattray's portfolio, pairing rich, honey-blonde stains with gorgeous, cumberland mouthpieces of complementary red and brown hues. Like the Old Gowrie and Marlin series, the Highland line features 12 shapes — six more robust designs that accommodate 9mm filters and six more slender shapes of standard drilling, appealing to a wide range of preferences. It's a worthy homage to Scotland's beautiful Highland region, offering equally as beautiful pipes from the famed Scottish marque.- Jeffery Sitts
