Port Royal hand rolling tobacco, or when i need to get a real hit of nicotine- White Ox
post #17 of 174
Switched from Marlboro Reds to making my own. I highly suggest it, testing different types and flavors is fun and it is much better for you (not saying much).

What were you in for? (just joking) I always found it a bit strong. I used to smoke Drum a bit though. It's other stablemates, Bank and Midland, were popular choices when we were kids.

I really enjoy Nat Sherman cigarettes, especially their Hint of Mint and MCD versions. Mmm, that is what real tobacco tastes like! The taste and smell is more like a cigar than a cigarette. I will also enjoy a good clove every now and then, usually a Djarum Black. There's really nothing quite like it.

My usual consumption is only one per day (or less), so I'm not really (too) worried about the health effects. I can still shred the local DDR machine to pieces, so it must not be doing me that much damage.

Still, I'm heavily into Zappa atm and he was a chain smoker so I'm finding a wierd comfort in that currently!
and zappa, my hero too, btw, died at age 53 from prostate cancer (makes you wonder where he was putting the cigs.....).

anyway i smoke hand-stuffed from D & R tobacco, and love them. i do lots of coffee like frank too, and roast my own.

gotaa make them choices, i guess....

I like Dunhills, but specialty cigarettes can be a bit expensive. Usually I just smoke camels.

Dunhill's & Dunhill Special Blend...you can't get Nat Sherman's in Vancouver anymore because they don't have pictures of brain tumours and rotten teeth on them to scare away people who pay $10 a pack for luxury cigarettes. I do like American smokes, Marlboro are good once and awhile...it is an interesting experiment to smoke a Sherman after 'regular' tobacco - very different nicotine hit like cigars, a slow lift off and very mellow - not your typical benzine blast to the frontal lobe or that bleachy taste of Player's...I dunno, Sherman's are up there with hash and espresso and chocolate to make for a nice after dinner contemplative mood - not the kind of smoke you will suck back on your way to work. So yeah! I vote for Shermies - now I'm jonesing!
p.s. to all you non-smoking ballsacker's that have to stick your oar in - go suck a Filntstone's chewable and get lost!

The only thing i should be locked up for is murdering music when i try to play guitar and sing- there should be new guidelines for maximum sentences for noise pollution in my case.
Weird i know, but a pouch of White-Ox every now and then just makes you realise the pleasure of smoking a good strong tobacco every once in a while.

If i am out in the pub, Dunhill's or Winfield's for me, usually 8's.

Haha! Yeah, I had wondered if his cancer was in any way contracted from smoking, namely metastisis. Apparently not though, unless he had perfected smoking out his other end. He was certainly unique enough to try it! A scenario like that actually sounds like a story Zappa might convey in the lyrics to one of his songs!

Anyway, back on topic; Bought a pack of Marlboro Red and have smoked nearly the whole pack now- over last day and a bit- and they are far stronger than what I remember them (it's been about a year since I smoked my last packet of em)! Looked at a few websites today that specialise in cigars and speciality cigarttes- ***** me, be it bloody UK tax packing most of the punch or not, are they expensive! I was hpoing online tobacco might be cheaper- granted, the speciality cigs aren't too extrapolated in price to standard packs/brands here in UK- but cigars, which, I'd love to seriously try and be open to getting into, are very, very pricey! Talking 10-20 quid for one cigar, depending on type and 'model' etc! Introductory packs, sampler packages and/or hampers are a small fortune of anywhere between over 100 GBP to near 500 GBP! I was shocked and chagrined! Mainly disappointed though at having to take a raincheck at dabbling my toes in that pond For now anyway...

They've been a nice, if potent change! I think be back to my nice, mellow, earthy GV roll-ups after this pack expires though. That is until I quit....

I think we should create a Head-Fi Social group for smokers....It's light heartening to see bunch of folks still into this centuries old practice


Ah yes, my wife smokes too, and a heavier Dunhill reds for her which I find too hot for my blood (now I am rotating Marlboro Silver)

I started smoking Gitanes non-tipped at fifteen.
I quit at thirty after being diagnosed with Buergers's disease

I can still be caught puffing on a decent cigar once in a blue moon when invited by a good friend but it's a really rare occurrence these days.
