Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Dark Porter (1855)
Product Number: 002-787-0784
This 4th Generation bent Brandy is named for Erik Stokkebye's 1855 blend — a rather traditional, pure Virginia mixture corresponding to his great-grandfather's year of birth. Many of Stokkebye's blends and pipe shapes honor significant dates in the familial company's rich history, and like the tobacco blend itself, this shape is smooth, natural, and approachable, crafted by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup and exhibiting a soft-lined, plump aesthetic in a compact, Nosewarmer form.
The low-profile sandblast of the Dark Porter series offers just the right hint of texture in hand while still maintaining the lines of this pipe's silhouette. Such a combination is typical among Danish pipes and is reflected in Peder Jeppesen's handling of this finish. The maker behind Neerup pipes, Peder also fashions a number of Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's pieces, merging his own artistic style with the tobacco brand's rich, familial tradition. That aesthetic is evident in the Dark Porter's subtly contrasting stain, the prominent, porter hue darker than 4th Generation's similarly inspired Brown Ale series but interspersed with lighter sections for added depth and a rich, black-and-tan motif.-Truett Smith
