Peterson Rosslare Classic 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 its style but nobody gets it quite as good as Peterson.
There are a few finishes in the Rosslare collection, the classic is as you would expect the standard range that sets the benchmark. It is a premium Briar finished with a light stain to enhance the natural grain pattern. Truly stunning!
Peterson 05 Shape:
The Peterson Rosslare 05 is a full bent briar with a fairly large, Dublin shaped bowl. The 05 fits the hand beautifully as the lipped top provides the perfect resting place for the index finger and thumb. (Rather like a Nonic Pint Glass) It has a fairly large bore and a good thick wall, which allows the smoker to get a good fill of tobacco, without the worry of overheating. If the above hasn’t satisfied your appetite we ought to also point out the 05 has a more exaggerated curve than normal, which helps the system do its job more effectively.
The bowl is finished in a light reddish stain which compliments the Amber stem beautifully before the pipe is finished with a hallmarked 925 silver mount and band.
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.
