Rattray's: Distillery Natural Sandblasted (106) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-3347
The "106" bent Billiard from Rattray's is a more gently bent rendition compared to the Scottish marque's "2" and "8" designs. With a stout, abbreviated shank, the "106" features a burly, broad bowl, making for a robust design that doesn't lack in palm-filling substance and that exudes a muscular, almost Pot-like presence. It's a pipe meant to be held, marked by a firm heel and hearty proportions, while the elongated, tapered stem adds a touch of accenting refinement in profile.
As testified to by its Devil's Cut and Angel's Share series, Rattray's isn't shy about its affection for whisky, specifically single-malt, Scotch whisky, of course. The Scottish marque's Distillery series celebrates that Scottish "water of life" and honors historic, Islay distillers like Lagavulin, Bruichladdich, and Kilkoman, known for their smoky and peaty whiskeys. Pipes in this series are united by a broad, copper band — the same material used for whisky stills — and this example wears the line's virgin-finish sandblast, which will darken with a patina as this pipe is smoked.-Truett Smith
