Rattray's: Distillery Black Sandblasted (109) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-3352
Rattray's "109" design is a moderately sized, thoroughly traditional Billiard that displays an upright bowl with a sturdy heel underneath. It fits in well to the Scottish marque's classic shaping style and is one of several straight Billiards featured on Rattray's shape chart. The "109" is significantly smaller than the massive "147" and a tad larger than the compact "100" Nosewarmer, making it a perfect, middle-of-the-road choice for those who prefer traditional shapes with well-balanced proportions.
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 Kilchoman, 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 dark-stained sandblast.- Jeffery Sitts
