Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 592

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 592. Our featured interview tonight is with Jonni Adams. Jonni makes the J. Adams line of pipes. He is originally from Leeds in West Yorkshire, England, and moved to the US in 1997. His background is in electrical engineering, audio electronics, and he plays guitar. His first interest in pipes started when he was a boy when his father smoked a pipe. Jonni started making pipes during the 2020 lockdown. He likes doing fluted fans and almost automotive-themed engineered pipes, pokers and more. At the top of the show we will have an Ask the Tobacco Blender segment with Jeremy Reeves, and we will focus on Oriental tobaccos. Jeremy is the Head Blender at Cornell & Diehl, which is one of the most popular boutique pipe tobacco companies in the USA.

  • The discussion with Jeremy seems to have answered Sean’s question well. However, I think a more in-depth examination of Oriental tobaccos, their origins and taste profiles, would make an interesting segment for newer pipe smokers. As Steve Fallon and TinBids do a nice business in vintage tobaccos, which often feature Oriental blends, it might help the novice or even the veteran smoker, understand what they are possibly getting into. Jeremy’s lament about the future availability of many of these tobacco crops makes it even more necessary to know what is out there.
    The conversation with Jonni, who is relatively new to the community, was an interesting view of the “newer” pipe enthusiast’s journey. He brings an eclectic background to his craft, and his pipes are quite colorful and inventive in design.
    “Fly By Night” was an inspired choice, great tune.
    I, too, am not a hoarder. I am, to be precise, an archivist.
    Prayers and best wishes for your Florida relocation.
    Thanks for the fun show.

  • The Oriental tobaccos are something of a mystery to me. I think we could do with a primer on where they come from how the effect they have on “normal” tobaccos we encounter, I hope they don’t get caught up in the same kind of mess that killed Syrian Latakia.
    Jonni was a great guest who filled the airwaves with his natural charm and a very straightforward answers to question. He had to be a great guest on the show because he answered every question at length and with gusto. He is fairly new to pipe smoking and carving, and he seems have a natural knack on pipe design. It would be nice if he could produce more pipes.
    Music was o kay, I guess.
    Nope not a hoarder as I am in the act of drawing down my cellar.
    Do you have time limit on long you will live in any one house?? You move almost as much as I did while growing up.
