We are pleased to bring you the 9th weekly episode of the Pipes Magazine Radio Show. Our featured guest tonight is Jim Craig of Ashton Pipes. In tonight’s "Pipe Parts" segment, Brian talks about taste-testing different tobacco blends, using various pipes, separate packing methods, and different moisture levels. You will probably learn a neat trick while listening to this segment.
We hope you enjoy our 45-minute show produced just for you—the pipe smoker and collector. The following link will launch a pop-up player. Alternatively, you can download the show in iTunes after the initial broadcast is complete here.
The origin of Ashton Pipes goes back to 1983 when Bill Ashton-Taylor started the company after gaining many years of experience at Dunhill. Like Dunhill, Ashton Pipes are oil-cured and handmade in England, and are high-quality. It was just a little bit before the Richmond show in 2009 that Bill Taylor passed away after succumbing to injuries from an automobile accident. Ashton Pipes continues to deliver handsomely designed, excellent quality pipes with Jim Craig at the helm.
Here’s Jim at the C.O.R.P.S. Show in Richmond, October 2010.
