Dunhill: Amber Root (4145) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-3900
Affectionately dubbed the "Don," Dunhill's "45" design is a Poker rendition fitted to a slender, elongated, and slightly bent stem. The Don shares much in common with The White Spot's "44" shape (called the "Duke"), and the two designs differ only in their shank arrangements: The Duke lacks a shank, the mouthpiece and fuselage-style stem simply fitting straight into the lower bowl. By contrast, as seen here, the Don features an abbreviated shank and mount-style stem arrangement. Found here in Group 4 size, this piece sits upright on its flattened heel and is dressed in the reserved hue of the Amber Root line.
One of Dunhill's more recent finishes, the Amber Root was introduced in 1995. Like the Root Briar, it showcases a smooth stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain in traditional style. Typically auburn-hued, the Amber Root is often a touch darker in color than that of the Root Briar, pairing handsomely with the jet-black stem for an aesthetic that combines the grain definition of the Root Briar finish with the darker, smokier tones of the Bruyere.-Truett Smith
