"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"


My name is Kaplowitz but please, call me Kaplowitz.

I was born on an unseasonably warm day in a Brooklyn February. I was once a chef and another time a professional wrestler. I am a published writer, both on-line and on-paper, of genres ranging from Pulp to Pome. I've also sold a used car or two. Two.

I've smoked cigars for much of my adult life and have turned to the leaf in times of up & in times of down. I dress in mostly underwear save but an occasional pair of jeans and even less occasional hoodie. I enjoy TV Dinners.


#KM was established in 2015 as cheap therapy and became in short order a cigar blog. You coulda knocked me over with a feather but that'd be cheating because I have a terrible sense of balance.

Some time since Kaplowitz Media became a trusted source within cigar circles, & w/ a growing cult following to boot. #KM is steak. #KM is sizzle. Yet strangely, #KM is raw. DIY, LoFi, admittingly #leastmode -- & yet again -- & strangely too, quite beautiful and technically sound.

As a 'media outlet,' K/M offers a unique brand of infotainment by way of print, audio, and video forms. Cigar reviews are far-far front & center but I've never been too opposed to the hither&thither interview and/or spewing my views. 


Past and present advertisers/sponsors: (in no particular order) Drew Estate, Illusione, Om Mani, Caldwell, Gran Habano, La Barba, DAV, Felix Assouline, Providencia, Cattle Baron, Rock-A-Feller, Casa Cuevas, Jas Sum Kral, Kafie 1901, Debonaire. Yes, these are all cigar brands. Yes, I am also willing to accept coffee & booze ads. There is many a fan of those things and more within the cigar world.
