Menthol and regular versions are available. This is easily the best cigarette produced… if you can find it. Rare is to cigarettes what Stradivarius is to cellos. These make everything else look bad. If you can get a pack; get a pack. They come in a metal tin, and are noticably more expensive than ‘common’ cigarettes.
A semi-new cigarette with a nice punch. A bit harsher than Newport, but with a better smoke rush. You feel these.
Camel’s original line of cigarettes. They get the job done. Straightforward flavor.
Camel Turkish Gold/Jade
Camel’s newer line of regular (Gold) and menthol (Jade). I can’t say these are superior to Camel’s main line, but I can’t say they’re worse. Also in this line is “Turkish Royale” which I am still undecided on.
Camel Exotic Flavors
If they sound good to you – they probably will be. Crema, Mandarin mint, Twist, Dark mint… These can be an excellent change of pace. As of this writing Mandarin Mint is my primary brand.
I’ve tried most all of these (and believe me, there are a lot of variants). I’ve liked – actually liked – none of them. I don’t understand how they got to be as popular as they are.
This is a super premium import. The box is nice, and it is the best paper I’ve seen. The contents are fairly pedestrian, though. This one comes in several varieties… Blue, Red, Green… I forget what the colours mean.
Kamel Red/Kamel Red Light
This is a good and readily available line. Nothing spectacular, but not bad in the least.
Regular and menthol, full flavor and light, this is a solid brand of smokes. Recommended for anyone.
These are pleasant menthol-only cigarettes. They taste differnet from each other, but neither is better or worse. I personally prefer the Newport.
Lucky Strike – no filter
They’re Toasted! I got a pack of these while on a WWII kick. At first the toasting bugged me. Why would they make a cigarette deliberately taste like it has been smoked before? By the end of the pack I was wondering “Why doesn’t EVERYONE toast tobacco first!?”. Tastey. Harsh. Toasted.
Salem Black Label/Green Label
Almost worse than no cigarettes at all, the “new” Salem Green Label gave me a nasty sore throat. I got them because they were on sale, and the box was pretty.
These are amazing. Why? Because they’re legal. If you’re not used to smoking – I suggest you get a pack just to try them out. You may get dizzy, so look out. These are very tightly packed and can burn for 20+ minutes. I’ve never seen anyone smoke one of these in under 15 minutes and not get ill.
It has a recessed filter! Why? I don’t know… so your tongue never touches the cotton filter? So it just has less filter? Cheaper to produce? I just don’t know. These are quite good – and I like the form factor of the recessed filter.
This is one of the few brands to offer a 120mm version. That is about all it has going for it. Not recommended.
These have been around for a while, and they’re not terrible. How’s that for a glowing review?
These are terrible terrible cigarettes. If you want to try smoking, but make sure it is a bad experience buy one of these. The BEST thing I can say about them is that they have an ammonium taste to them. Like ammonium? You’re in luck!
