Peterson: Summertime 2019 (68) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43445
One of Peterson's more classically English shapes, the "68" bent Brandy serves as a curvaceous sibling to the "69" bent Billiard. The "68" features less of the Irish marque's signature style of stout shanks and hearty transitions, instead placing more emphasis on the bowl, with the rounded base and slight taper toward the rim softening the profile. The added briar at the base makes for a substantial in hand feel, and the tapering rim, stretching transition, and comparatively slender shank conform well to wrapped fingers. Fitted on the end of a lithe bend, it's a piece that's comfortable no matter how you choose to hold it, catering well to all smoking postures.
The Summertime series is an annual release from Peterson, unique to the year but always displaying a bright and sunny aesthetic. It's designed to pair well with the warmer months of the year, prompting outdoor smokes with your favorite summer blends. For 2019, the line showcases a warm, chocolate-stained rustication, with the peaks of the textured finish colored a touch lighter to contrast. Meanwhile, the vibrant, tangerine-hued acrylic stem is rivaled only by the flashy nickel mount that adorns each piece.-Jeffery Sitts
