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 Rattrays 2016 Pipe Of The Year Limited Edition Briar Pipes
Rattray’s are turning out to be the kings of limited edition pipes with new and exciting ranges produced every year and this years pipe of the year is no exception. The buzz of excitement around this pipe surpassed all expectations as it was sold out before it was even released by budding retailers such as ourselves who snapped them up on sight!
For the 2016 pipe of the year we have a stunning bent bulldog which will have avid bulldog fans snapping at our heels to get one for their collection. It is a classic bent bulldog with a half bent diamond shank and double tapered bowl with the iconic double rings around the peak of the bowl. Very comfortable and striking to look at.
Your only issue is which finish to go for!! But we can’t help you with that as it’s personal preference and they are all stunning!
9mm Absorbent Filter
The Charles Rattray’s The Druid 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.
