Dunhill Shell Briar 5108 Bent Rhodesian Pipe, made in England 2001

This morning, I’m smoking the Ferrari Testarossa under my pipes. This pipe was my birthday gift of 2015 and was buyed as new, by a friend of mine, Simone, from his shop in Rimini, Italy. I’m very impressed because the sandlast of this Dunhill pipe is very unusual. The pipe is not marked as “Ring Grain”, which you can appreciate here and here. Anyway, made in 2001 as Shell Briar, very unusual.
The first time I smoked this pipe, was in a meeting with other pipe brothers in Hamburg, with some McClelland Christmas Cheer 2014. It was broked with a Virginia de luxe, so, I still smoke this sporty smoking machine only with Virginia. I this case some McClelland Bulk: 2010 – Classic Virginia.

Well, have a look to this pictures to make you an idea how lucky I am. From Berlin with love, p

Dunhill Shell Briar 928 Group 6, Smoking Pipe, Made In England 1993

Tonight I’m smoking a huge Dunhill with a deep sandblast, birdeyes on the side and in straight grain in the middle. This machine is now smoked with some Peterson’s Irish Flake. Amazing sweetness with full strenght. Almost a dark flake with 33.3% of Virginia, 33.3% of Burley and 33.3% of dark fired kentucky. Perfect suitable after a good dinner with a red wine. Enjoy your time and think positive. From Berlin with love. P
