Rossi's "8611 EX" is a classical, wide-rimmed Dublin shape that's been scaled up to Extraordinaire proportions, offering the smoker plenty of chamber and insulating walls alike. It's finished in an extra dark, rugged rustication and accented only by a thin ring of bright nickel, keeping the focus on the shape itself.
A bold bent Dublin of hearty proportions, Rossi's "8611" is modeled after Savinelli's "611 KS" design and offers a substantial, three-quarter bent stem-and-shank combination for comfortable balance. The bowl flares softly from the firm Italian heel in almost Billiard fashion, but with just enough expansion to know it's a Dublin. With a high-set transition reaching halfway up the bowl, it's a Dublin meant for long, comfortable smokes — especially in the case of this EX-sized rendition.
