Posted by Greg Rosenberg on 3rd Oct 2022

Here we go, the first Tobacco File since going from bi-weekly to monthly for the regular column (there will be bonus posts for some new blends). I have to say, I’m very happy with this format, I had much more time to dig into these mixtures. To think I started the Tobacco Files—or, "What I Smoked Th …

The Tobacco Files - Seattle Pipe Club Give Me Liberty

Posted by Greg Rosenberg on 27th Sep 2022

So in the last Tobacco File, I wrote that I would be changing the main column from biweekly to monthly, and would write short, bonus blogs highlighting a single blend—likely something new or special in some way—when opportunity presents.

The Tobacco Files 14 - Sutliff Crumble Kake No. 4 & Cobblestone Knight

Posted by Greg Rosenberg on 15th Jul 2022

We have another brand new blend in this Tobacco File, the latest in Sutliff's Barrel Aged Series—Crumble Kake No. 4. Instead of doing another recently release or themed pick, for our second tobacco blend, I thought I'd find something on which there was very little information out there. I opted …
