Rattray's: Distillery Natural Sandblasted (107) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4297
Like Rattray's "99" design, the Scottish marque's "107" is a compact bent Apple of stout proportions and Nosewarmer dimensions. The "107" is a touch longer, made more slender by the stretched saddle stem, but maintains a good deal of substance while being conveniently pocket-sized. It remains comfortable in hand, and the stout proportions of the shank do well to match the bowl's robust, low-set waistline — meaning there's plenty of insulation around the chamber and room to accommodate a 9mm filter in the tenon and mortise.
As testified to by its Devil's Cut and Angel's Share series, Rattray's isn't shy about its affection for whisky, specifically single-malt, Scotch whisky, of course. The Scottish marque's Distillery series celebrates that Scottish "water of life" and honors historic, Islay distillers like Lagavulin, Bruichladdich, and Kilchoman, known for their smoky and peaty whiskeys. Pipes in this series are united by a broad, copper band — the same material used for whisky stills — and this example wears the line's virgin-finish sandblast, which will darken with a patina as this pipe is smoked.-Truett Smith
