Peterson Rosslare Royal Irish Series:
The Peterson Rosslare is one of those iconic pipes that every smoker drools over in the catalogue, with a “one day i’ll treat myself” in the vain hope that their partner’s ear wigging and will buy it for them. If there was a Pipe that should go on the Irish flag it would surely be the Rosslare. Many pipemakers try and mimic it’s style but nobody gets it quite as good as Peterson. There are a few finishes in the Rosslare collection, the Royal Irish smooth is the flagship model made using the higher grade of Briar with very few flaws. It is a premium Briar finished with a light stain to enhance the natural grain pattern. Truly stunning!
Royal Irish vs Classic:
Many get confused with the Rosslare series. The Royal Irish uses a premium grade of bowl selected for it’s superior grain and is finished with a 925 Silver army military mount.
Peterson 03 Shape:
The Peterson Rosslare 03 is a full bent briar with a medium sized, apple shaped bowl. The 303 is very popular mainly due to the comfortable shape and its manageable size. The 303 has a slightly thicker wall towards the base, which helps prevent the pipe overheating.
The pattern on the stem is unique to every pipe and varies considerably so every pipe is a one off and will not be exactly as pictured.
The standard mouthpiece for most pipe manufacturers. The fishtail has the exit hole in the end of the mouthpiece. The end of the mouthpiece is flat, which some people find easier to grip, and suits the smoker who doesn’t get on with the p.lip style.
