This week, I'm pleased to introduce a new pipe tobacco from Mac Baren, and a new line of pipes from Rossi! This is definitely a study in contrasts, hence the clever title to this post. Well, I thought it was kinda clever. :)
First up, Rossi Piccolo pipes: The first petite series from Rossi, the Piccolo series adds six popular Savinelli shapes to the Rossi line, but for the first time scaling these shapes to elegant, pocket-pipe proportions. These unfiltered pipes are finished much like the Vittoria series in a dark, classic rustication and fitted with jet-black vulcanite stems! A Piccolo pipe is ideal for anyone searching for a traditional pipe that can be comfortably stowed in a pocket while on the go!
Next, I'm happy (and a bit trepidatious) to introduce Mac Baren's HH Rustica tobacco! If you thought Bold Kentucky was strong...beware! Mac Baren's HH Rustica marks a first in the modern pipe tobacco industry. Blending Virginias and Burleys from the commonly used Nicotiana Tabacum with that of the rarely used Nicotiana Rustica, this blend provides an incredibly bold and one of a kind smoke! Hot-pressed and cut into flakes, this high-nicotine blend is not for the faint of heart! But it might be right up your alley if you like distinctive flavors such as peaty Scotches, strong black coffee, sharp cheeses, or strong cigars. This is a Limited Edition offering of only 7,100 numbered 3.5 oz. tins, and when they're gone, that's all folks!
Keep 'em lit,
