Charles Rattray’s Briar Pipes
Charles Rattray’s master blenders have an impeccable worldwide reputation for their unique tobacco blends and unrivalled character. You can be forgiven for not knowing that Rattray’s also produce pipes as they were only released onto the general market in 2012. Their pipes were formerly reserved for exclusive sale in their Perth shop but they have answered many prayers by releasing these stunning pipes to retailers worldwide.
Charles Rattray’s Nimbus Briar Pipes
The striking feature of the Charles Rattray’s Nimbus is the Solid metal halo around the rim of the bowl. Not only does this protect the rim from scorching but it dissipates the heat from the bowl providing a cooler smoke, In a classic Calabash shape with a striking design the nimbus is finished with a 9mm half bent stem that sits snugly in the matching metal band and Rattrays logo imprinted on the shank.
9mm Absorbent Filter
The Charles Rattray’s Nimbus pipes are designed for use with the any 9mm absorbent stem filters. The larger diameter allows more smoke to pass through the filter, with less restriction, which makes for a better draw compared to the 6mm filters. The highly absorbent filters have a very high surface area resulting in excellent absorption of the tar as the smoke passes through without affecting draw or flavour.
The pipes have a standard 9mm bore so can be used with any brand of 9mm filter if preferred. Alternatively the filter can be removed altogether for smokers who prefer a totally un-restricted full on smoke.
