Rattray's: Angel's Share (105) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-6046
Rattray's "105" is a stout, full-bodied Rhodesian, displaying a strong sense of muscularity that likens it to the classic Bullmoose shape. The "105" offers a more substantial presence in hand compared to the nosewarmer dimensions of the Scottish marque's "131" and "140" Rhodesians, while serving as a bent alternative to the "120." The heel on this piece is forward-urging and well rounded, while the rim tapers upward from the pair of crisp beadlines circling the bowl's waist. The robust shank seamlessly continues the bowl's heartiness before meeting the tapered stem, which ends in a gentle downturn to allow for a comfortably balanced, hands-free smoking posture.
Much like Rattray's Devil's Cut series, the Scottish marque's Angel's Share line refers to the portion of whisky unavoidably absorbed by the barrel in which the liquor is aging. However, while the Devil's Cut series consists of a singular, Barrel-shaped Poker design, the Angel's Share line offers a range of classic shapes, like this particular piece. With its vibrant, reddish-orange stain and sunny yellow acrylic stem, it radiates warmth and results in a pipe that's downright heavenly.-Truett Smith
