Some old friends and new faces in the offerings. I suspect the $100 Pete is getting to be a thing of the past. I like the chimney, not for appearance so much but as a smoking option -- a great burley or burley blend pipe.
Odd in what way? They love their Guinness, an Englishman's brew. The tricolor has the orange. Even the Queen was welcomed with gracious hospitality. Scars? Certainly. Enmity with the North, less and less everyday with shared government in certain areas.
I gotta confess ... I'm not sure I like Peterson's spigots. The stems look to thin with respect to the rest of the pipe to me. I hope this doesn't mean a shift in their production at the expense of their older, more attractive lines.
