Peterson: Tyrone (150) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-66222
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
First released in the early 1990s, Peterson's Tyrone series was named for County Tyrone in Northern Ireland, a historical region originally called Tír Eoghan, "Land of Eoghan" in the Irish language. The Tryone line was discontinued in the early '00s, but Peterson resurrected the series in 2021 with modern appointments and a fresh finish. Like the originals, new Tyrone pipes bear a smooth finish and trim brass accents but trade the earlier version's walnut stain for the Irish marque's dark and smoky Heritage finish. Like Peterson's Aran Smooth and Killarney series, the Tyrone offers pipes in a smooth finish and distinctive, traditional color palette at an accessible price, but is distinguished from the chestnut stain of the Aran and the Red and Ebony versions of the nickel-accented Killarney. Beautifully alluring and with just the right balance of refined class and understated elegance, this Peterson Tyrone pipe is perfect for those interested in a reserved and traditional finish at a wallet-friendly price.- Jeffery Sitts
