The prize - a pre "K" grade Castello Dublin, which makes it about 50 years old (or more). It's a Carlo Scotti.

Nice haul! Love the Castello dublin. I can imagine they'd all be great performers. The thin bit and large button on the Novak looks like it's still be comfortable to clench despite the weight from the shank.

Nice loot for sure Jud. Will you be bringing them on the 30th so we can have a peek at them? :puffy:

Thanks, fellas.

The Castello smokes like a dream. I fired it up Saturday night in the tent, loaded with Old Dublin. Heaven. I've already been looking at places like Briar Blues for more, although I won't be pulling the trigger any time soon!
I pulled the trigger too soon on the Triptow. It smokes OK, but if I'd waited, I would have had money for two Castellos. (The IPT, which also smokes OK, would have gotten a pass if I'd gotten another Castello.)
