Castello: Aristocratica Billiard
Product Number: 002-386-4413
The Aristocratica line from Castello remembers an exclusive production of pipes from 1968 to 1979. During this time, Carlo Scotti, the Italian workshops's founder, fashioned a select number of special pipes to give to his close friends. While this Billiard is not one of those specific pieces, it still features the same darkened rim and expert craftsmanship as the originals, paying homage to the workshop's founder and his generosity. The result is a thoroughly Italian-style briar — replete with a fumed rim and large, bowl-centric proportions — whose inspiration hearkens back to Castello's early roots. This rendition garners further bespoke appeal from a flattened and rusticated underside, lending additional tactile stimulation and an unforgettable presence in hand.-Truett Smith
