Burgundy Red – Montblanc

It seems that in 2010 Montblanc changed the manufacturer of their ink as well as the design of the bottle. The company’s issued a new, larger (60 ml vs 50 ml) bottle. To be honest I find Montblanc bottle not only nice but also practical, much better than Iroshizuku or Sailor.

 

The new colours launched in 2010 include:

  1. Burgundy Red
  2. Irish Green
  3. Lavender Purple
  4. Mystery Black
  5. Midnight Blue
  6. Oyster Grey
  7. Royal Blue
  8. Toffee Brown

Burgundy Red is a dusty ink with good shading properties. It flows well and doesn’t cause any trouble and yet I just can’t start enjoying it. The color is subtle and while I enjoy subtler blue or brown or green inks I expect reds (in broad understanding of the term red) to be heavily saturated. This one doesn’t impress me.

  1. It’s true, reds should be saturated. But I love this ink: I think I’m the only one in the world. To me it’s more Herbin than Montblanc, maybe Rouge Beaujolais? Nice to see your take on it, as always.
