Rattray's: Distillery Natural Sandblasted (129) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4178
Similar to the "120" shape in Rattray's Dark Reign line, the "129" Rhodesian is marked by stout muscularity and a distinct forward cant but trades the bowl ridgeline of the "120" for twin beadlines, catering to the shape's traditional convention with crisp tapers above and below. Fitted with a saddle stem, the shank contributes to the overall form's muscularity, standing boldly in contrast against the negative space created by the mouthpiece, which has been drilled to accommodate a 9mm filter.
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
