"Yes, I have been guilty of several monographs. They are all upon technical subjects. Here, for example, is one 'Upon the Distinction between the Ashes of the Various Tobaccos.'" Sherlock Holmes, The Sign of the Four.

I sometimes think I'll write that aforementioned and only alluded to monograph, although I'm sure I won't be the first. Nevertheless, premium tobacco remains the primary focus of this blog and also remains where my bread is buttered although in truth, at times on a margarine budget. There is much to cover in tobacciana beyond reviews of cigars (although I do that a lot). It's quite an interesting craft with quite a rich history and culture.

To be clear, I use the term 'tobacciana' to mean everything to do with premium tobacco, its history, and enjoyment.
Below are three of my either latest or greatest (in no particular order) cigars and pipe tobacco posts. Also, please remember you can use the Search Kaplowitz Media. function to the right of your screen; this is an excellent tact to take when looking for reviews of particular brands and blends.
