Castello: Old America 2021 Old Sea Rock Bent Billiard (19.20) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-386-4664

Castello's Old America limited-edition series was initially launched in 2020 in lieu of the annual IPCPR (International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers) or Premium Cigar Association trade show, which was canceled because of COVID-19 restrictions and for which Castello has traditionally fashioned a special line of pipes. The success of the serialized line, which featured the "84" Hawkbill in various finishes, prompted the Italian marque to continue the event for 2021, with this year's selection of only 20 pipes featuring the beloved bent Billiard. This Old Sea Rock-finished pipe is number 19.

Measuring nearly eight inches long and boasting a chamber depth of more than two, it's surprising that this piece doesn't display Castello's "G" stamp, denoting larger pipes. The hearty, palm-filling (and then some) bowl garners the pipe's visual weight, dwarfing the gracefully arcing shank-and-stem arrangement. Easily and comfortably cradled, the bowl's thick walls provide plenty of insulating warmth, while the craggy texture of the Sea Rock rustication lends a pleasing tactile experience. Additionally, this piece features the smoky, "fumed" stain that flows from the plateau-covered rim to mid-bowl, where an earthy, orange-brown hue commences down to the heel. The elongated, deep blue acrylic stem also provides a touch of color to the composition. The transition and abbreviated shank wear a smooth, complementing color, providing textural contrast in this striking piece, which comes in a protective box.
