Top Ten Best Cigarette Brands


The Top Ten

1 Marlboro

Marlboro is my favorite brand, its not a brand of cigarette, its a lifestyle. Really the best you can get at the local stores or anywhere around yourself. If you really want to smoke then choose marlboro to get that on your nicotine level

It's the best lifestyle "you can get at local stores or around yourself"? Wow. A life built around an advertising image, with smoking the brand as the most valuable component. - Billyv

The best human invention ever since automobiles. Especially marlboro red soft packs one.

I'm from western sahara it's south of morocco, marlboro it's the best here I love it I can't stoping smokin it and I don't want to stop smokin it

I love Marlboro advance 🤩

2 Camel

Camels are so much better than Marlboro's. Just saying.

Best cig ever. Most will say marlboro is stronger but this is not true. Marlboro is just harsher camel has more tar and more nicotine and a way better flavor

Camels are far supperior to marlboro in every way. Camels taste better burn beter and everything. Marlborors burn so fast and uneven

I love the aftertaste of it also!

3 Lucky Strike

Lucky Strike's taste is unique and distinctive, rich, smooth, and satysfying... And they taste really natural, almost free of additives...

Great tasting, smooth, packs a punch and is probably the coolest cigarette that you can smoke. It's a rugged cigarette for rugged people, no wimps allowed.

Lucky Strikes, a strong cigarette in it's own right. Red's are strong because they contain an abundant amount of catalyst additives to increase there strength. Lucky Strike use a robust effect by toasting tobacco leaves during preparation to give there signature taste. I grew up with this cigarettes and they are completely worth shipping them over to the U.S. where the filtered style is no longer sold.

You have fallen for the old (but admittedly clever) Lucky Strike strap line. Most if not all ready made cigarettes toast their tobacco, it is like a Milk Shake claiming it contains milk 'Sourced from Real Dairy Cattle'.

Very good flavor. If this was not a small cigarette I would mistake it for a cigar due to the taste ; )

4 Newport

They just make me so happy, I've tried switching to other brands to save money but I can't, they are way too amazing!

For myself Newport 100's burn slow, I get way way more for my money. Tried others... Nothing comes close to them. My husband smokes maverick, cousin reg. Newport's,.. I feel like I take 4-5 drags & It's gone. I will pay the $5.10. Nothing compares!

I can't for the life of me remember the exact price of these cigarettes mainly cause I don't pay attention to the price that's displayed above the registers, but I do know, of all the cigarette brands I have had the pleasure of enjoying, Newports are my all time favorites. they are set at a low budget price but for a cheap pack, they sure are strong. My Red Newports are as strong, if not stronger, than Marlboro Blacks and Reds. An added bonus is that Newports burn slower, last longer, taste better, and just down right gets the job done. When I first tried them I was hooked on the Marlboro Red 72's but my appetite, my cravings, for a nicotine filled drag, has changed for the Newports I smoke Today. I recommend that no matter what you smoke, every one should at least try red new ports at least once. And if you prefer menthols than go for the newport greens, but I'm a bigger fan of the reds. Screw shorts of any brand of cancer sticks, they just burn up way too quickly, no offense to the ...more

Newport should be #1 best square ever made

5 Pall Mall

The added Charcoal is just like adding peanut butter to chocolate, amazing!

I smoke between half to full pack a day and love them

Best cig for the price! I love the menthol. But the reds are amazing, so are the lights.

Pall Malls rounded corners is perfect!

6 Dunhill

I really love smoking dunhill.. It's the best any one could get. It's smell is awesome.

I love the Dunhill Switch. It had a bubble in the filter with mint, which you can break by sqeezing the filter. The mint gives a rich blend of taste in your mouth.

I love that the cigarette is satisfying and sophisticated. And comes in a great pack!

Really nice distinctive smell. Has a unique taste with a lingering of spiciness and undertones of sweetness. Favored by Hunter S Thompson and John Lennon

Dunhill swith is te best for personality and the mintpop is amazing.

7 Winston

I use to smoke malboro but now I love winston much better if you want great cigarettes then go for winston its amazing I love it there's different kinds of winston blue and silver and red. The red is the highest nicotine, the blue is medium nicotine, the silver the lowest. Enjoy

Current cigarette. These burn very slow since they are additive free, and the exhale is the most pleasant I've ever had on a cigarette. It's like it evaporates out of your mouth there's NO chemical/gross taste at all. Kudos Winston this is awesome

When I became a smoker, I was told that Pall mall was the real deal, and I can agree, they are good for the price, in my country (Sweden) they cost 43 sek which is about 6-7 dollars. Winston costs exactly the same. Therefore, when my local shop was out of Pall Mall, I bought winston because I want to save money. At first, (maybe the first and second cigarette) I thought they tasted the same as pall mall. But after a while I could really feel the difference. They are in every way better. If you ask me, it is the vest brand right now. It is cheap abd tastes wonderful, what else should you require? Strongly recommended

8 L&M

I have smoked tons of cigarettes going from Marlboro's to Winston, Pall Mall, Newport and whatever else you can think of and L&M blue's have to be my favorite, usually when I pull a pack of L&M's out of my pocket everyone asks what type of cigarettes these are, but when I light it up they say it smells amazing, really try it, it tastes good and gives a nice rush.

I love L&M so much, I smoke L&M red 100's, it is so good, it goes down really smooth, my only complaint is that it isn't wispy, I've tried most of the types and my friends have the same problem, the exhaled smoke is very thick and cloud like. But it tastes good, they're very inexpensive and just really good.

Lnm are my favorite they satisfy me the most and were I live they are only 5 dollars so they are also cheap I'm only 15 though so I might not be the most reliable source but if you were going to smoke anything I think lnm is the way to go

9 Kool

Mom gave me my first kool when I was 8 and I have smoked them ever since.

I tried my first Kool when I was 3 and a half, my dad told me it was the only way to become a real man so I have had lung cancer from the age of 7

As far as menthols go this is my cigarette of choice. That's all

Best there is

10 Benson & Hedges

Fantastic smoke, not too strong, not too weak, doesn't ruin your throat. I've tried all sorts of brands available here in Ireland, and only Lucky Strike comes anywhere near close.

This brand have its own taste nothing can compare with this brand. It give you ultimate taste and Fantastic smoke, not too strong, not too weak, doesn't ruin your throat. I've tried all sorts of brands available here in Ireland, and only Lucky Strike comes anywhere near close.

11 Parliament

I love these, excellent taste and not a harsh smelling.

I definitely recommend for smokers that want strong taste and lite on smell.

12 Davidoff

Every smoker in this world is acquainted with the reputation of Davidoff cigars. And Davidoff cigarettes maintain same well defined standards of quality and excellence. Davidoff cigarettes were born to be elite among the cigarettes because of their superior unique taste and stylishness. When you smoke Davidoff cigarettes, you not only taste the best tobacco, you also experience the history, culture and tradition of rich and quality smoking.

The taste of Davidoff is so much different than any other cigarettes.
After tasting Davidoff gold or classic, you can not go back to simple marlboro... And for the record, smoking Davidoff is just unique and glamorous.

I just love it... The taste is just superb and the smole is really very good I am a big fan of dis

Very cigarette

13 Gold Flake

If you've guts inhale it to the maximum you'll feel the maximum taste... It'll surely made you go crazy, it refers to cigarettes made using 'bright rich golden tobacco'. Brands other than Wills Gold Flake are Bacons' Gold Flake, Hignett's Golden Flaked Honey Dew, Salmon and Gulckstein's Gold Flake.

Smooth, best selling.. King size and lights adds extra to the brand

Goldflake king size has a nice clean tobacco taste with a light, mellow sweet tone. The quality of the tobacco used in the cigarette is good. It draws very well and a decent enough smoke body for a filtered cigarette. Burning is even generally with no blush on the paper indicating good quality paper. It is a slow burning cigarette adding value to your money. Nice and pleasurable cigarette. Worth a smoke.

Amazing blend of neither too strong nor too light. Gold Flake is an emotion.

14 Kent

Kent would be my favourite brand because of the smooth taste. Their filters are one of the best I've seen. Even the strong Kent cigarettes don't leave a taste like a cat just took a dump in your mouth, referring to winston ahem.
Overall great brand with excellent taste.

But which breed of cat do you prefer to have take a dump in your mouth? - Billyv

Kents are the most refined and elegant cigarettes you can find. The taste is sweet and smooth, and they leave little to no smell. Kent Classics are a gentleman's choice and they last a long time. If you want less additives than the ones from all the newer crap cigarettes being released today, try Kent Classics and you won't regret it.

Smooth Taste, not aggressive cigarette, leaves my month with a smooth tobacco taste and it is the king of Innovation always they come with something new

Kent is wonderful to so great

15 Marlboro Red

Hi I want buy Marlboro Red How I do that I don't know I need some body help me please

If you're a follower... a sheep... a mindless lemming who is easily mesmerized by advertising, then Marlboro Reds are the death spikes of choice for you. Perfect high school peer-pressure band. If you totally lack originality and want to be part of the endless herd of braindead comsumers manipulated by ad men, then Marlboro Reds are for you. As for the taste, the closest description would be burning rope with a hint of burnt plastic thrown in for free. They burn fast - I think they use paper that is impregnated with gunpowder to get them to burn that fast.

The most popular cigarette in the world but is not one that you could smoke a lot due to odd flavour it's very smooth

Smooth and great throat hit and taste. The first thing I do in the morning is satisfy my hungry tar stained lungs by lighting one of these up and hauling hard and holding the smoke and exhaling with a moan of satisfaction while the nicotine relaxes me and gives me complete pleasure.

16 Rothmans

Great full taste, using them for morning cafe!

The best 1 is rothmans international... And its awesome.

Nice burn, nice taste, nice smoke..

I've always smoked marlboro red. And I still do sometimes, just to remind me, how Rothsmans is actually a lot better.

Marlboro makes you feel dizzy and is drag feels heavy, Rothsmans reds are just as satisfying as marlboro red, and outstanding aroma and smell, but a lot more pleasureble.

17 du Maurier

The satisfying and intense flavour of these Caribbean tobacco leaves stimulates a taste so insanely good that your taste buds keep you craving more. A marvellous cigarette indeed. DuM near Marlboro is The best cigarette brand in the world!

De Maurier signatures are the only smoke I find that actually tastes good. Most cigarettes are tolerable when you are craving but smoking these is like eating candy. They taste amazing and leave you wanting more

Simply the best there is for smoking

This is what I been smoking for a long time now

18 Salem

Have loved being a Salem smoker for a lot of years. I started smoking rather young and enjoyed the feeling associated with it, but didn't really find any taste to speak of. Then I tried a Salem and at that moment knew I would become a long-term regular smoker. And so decades later, here I am, just as happy as ever when I put that first cigarette of the day to my lips and inhale that rich mentholated smoke. I am so thankful for all these years of Salem pleasure.

Been smoking Salem's 20 years the best menthol cigarette ever my wife also smokes Salem and we enjoy the cigarette very much big smokers probably the only addiction we have but I don't call it an addiction I call it enjoyment thanks for making this famous cigarette

These cigarettes are all the best that money can buy I love Menthol and I will stay home because they are the best menthol cigarette on the market Plus Paul Hogan who played Crocodile Dundee is a big fan of Salem cigarettes

I thought they would be gross at first so I bought them and smoked them when I ran out of camels and I learned that they're actually pretty good

If you never had a classic you just missed a epic moment of your lifetime...

It goes with its name "CLASSIC"

Should b on first

Just the right blend and the fine flavour of Classic makes it always dependable.

20 Philip Morris

It tastes almost like Winston to me, but since, at least, in my country they're new, you don't pay for the popularity of the brand name, so they are like 15-20% cheaper than Winston.

It's my girl friend cioice

It is disgusting to smoke

Don't smoke bad for ya lungs I bet you giys brrath smells like crusty dog food

21 Roof Top

I have no idea about cigarettes but I like the name Roof Top because it reminds me of the fun I used to have with my ex (on the roof top of course! )

I just tried these and I really enjoyed it. I would recomend these highly.


I don't know what Candian believe this is Marlboros. It's tase is different and it is stronger than that.

Not for posers. They literally burn your throat, which, is a very good thing if you're not a sensitive little boy.

23 Natural American Spirit

American spirit cigarettes last for longer than any other cigarettes I've smoked! The different types are very important. I like the yellow pack because of how smooth they smoke. Yet, light blue is another favorite and it's quite harsh. They have a smoke for everybody and everyone I know loves them. The 20 minute cigarette will always be my favorite!

The unfiltered tan Spirits are the strongest cigarette you can legally smoke. However, their other offerings are just as great. Lime greens are the best menthol I've ever smoked, the turquoise are the best full-bodied cigarettes I've ever smoked, and the oranges are a very good light option. They last longer, taste better, and blow away the competition.

Best cigarette in the world! They burn slow, taste clean, and have an extremely high nicotine content. Stay away from the mellows unless you like smoking air. You can't go wrong with the blacks or the grays. It's also the best brand for casual smokers or people who are trying to cut down on smoking.

How are these not in the top 5? I have been smoking the blue natural american spirits as a way to try to distance myself only slightly from smoking and not feeling bad by it, and these are great! One of the strongest buzzes you can get and additive free. The blue tastes amazing.

Only a Persian like me knows the real taste of bahman!

I know it is not as well known as the others but believe me it has got a taste you will never forget.

These Persians know how to make Cigarettes.
The taste is unforgettable, and these cigarettes are very strong as well.

You can never forget that taste...never

26 Export A

This brand really is THE best, lots of varieties, a good range in regular and menthols. I like the light blue, it's light and smooth but full, not airy like there's a leak in it. Serious smokers and dabblers alike try one and are always impressed. Also it's a cool package, they're shorter and the whole thing is just very debonair for the most part. Like you're in a movie from the 30s. Just don't make it a habit!

Export Green and the Lights (gold pack) outshine any other cigarette in my opinion.

These are quite nice strong but smooth and they do not smell bad

Amazing flavor and just the right strength.

They taste really strong believe it or not.

The best for the price I love how other states complain about cig prices try living in Michigan were new ports run ya $8.00 a pack and mar reds run ya $7.00at only $5.30 a pack and the flavor and quality you can't compare. Look out for pall mall damn thing goes out if you wait a few seconds between hits SO IF J WANT THE STRONGEST AND CHEAP IN COST THEN PYRAMID IS the best damn cig period

Very strong but very chep I love it 4.00-5.00 in the state of Utah

Gold leaf is the ciggaerete that a real man can have it's the number one brand in the world...

Gold leaf is real life of smoker and number one brand in the world

30 Silk Cut

Silk cut purple 100s are my favourite, love coming home from work and lighting 4 or 5 one after the other. Smoke about 30 a day these days always need another cigarette a don't want to stop, love how they taste a feel. Love opening a new pack, lighting the first one a taking the longest drag I can until my lungs are burning!

Silk Cut purple is amazing cigarette.. One of the best light cigarette on the market

Occasional social smoker. Tried others. Very light and smooth.

The best light luxury cigrates ever! Unfortunately, this amazing brand is unavailable in the Swedish markets. Therefore, I should always buy myself or my friends from duty free while traveling.

33 Chesterfield

Been smoking Chesterfield Reds for the past year or so. Before that I was on Mayfair, Pall Mall, Marlboro, I kept switching because I wasn't sure if I liked each one I tried. Chesterfield are cheap and tasty.

Probably the best taste. Burns a bit fast though, but even better than the marlboro soft red packs. I stopped em to smoke Chesterfield.

I'd take Chesterfield over most cigarettes any other day (I used to smoke Reds, but I've ended up switching to menthol). They may burn a little fast, but they are tasty and budget-friendly.

Good taste for such a cheap cigarette. 8/10

Is a Korea types of cigarette made from Korea. It has 2 types of flavor which is strawberry and green apple. It has a bit of mint flavor in it which make it more delightful every pump you have.

It is the best ciggerate so far I have smoked. Its paper quality is best and the tobacco used is very light and pure

Nice tastes, should be at top 5

They caught me with the giveaways. 25 years later still hooked. Oh yeah, they taste great!

Favorite Taste!


Really good

Its very good;heavy and full flavour;IranIAN cigarette

38 West

Camel used to be my favorite cigarettes. Now it's West. The taste is rich and unique, the smoke is smooth and it does not make you cough. They don't burn too fast or uneven. High quality for a rather low price. I tried a whole lot of brands but none of them could compare to my lovely West's!
Quick reminder of their old slogan and my suggestion: TEST THE WEST! (if they're available anywhere else than here in Germany which I don't know)

Nice and pretty strong. My favorite by far

39 Gold Flake Kings

This is good for health. Please everybody should be smoke gold flake only.

Gold Flake Kings only can make satisfied me I like it

Most of the Indians smoke kings, may be you can say all of them who smokes. They are not comfortable with any other cigrette because of heat boss it's heavy here...

One of the smoothest and best among all other brand.

Vogue clickis the blue pack, what I love about them is the fact that you can click to change your cigarette to menthol any time after lighting, I used to do half way but now I click befor lighting up, they are smooth and very sophisticated, I have managed to introduce at least 7 people to vogue, as I won't smoke anything else, friends need to try mine to see what all the fuss is about, once you vogue ther is no going back.


I adore smoking vogue frisée menthe. So elegant. The pack is ultra cute. The super slims burn a little slower than the original slims making them last a few hits longer. Every vogue is an absolute pleasure and a must for all fashion conscious smoking girls. The flavour is immense. Once you go won't change.

I'm 17 & a girl. My dad smokes & I started it beacaude my life was very boring. It's my dad who smokes merit & so do I!

I have been smoking merit for 10 years and I've tried every brand but merit is the most awesome and good taste for me.

Best of the best.

Absolutely we can find them but they’re here in Ohio the price was around 6$ now it’s like 9 $ a pack, that’s where l draw the line! But l loved the light flavor, the 100 yellows is what we used to get. I loved how if you were doing something and it in a smokeless ashtray they went out. Not to mention they didn’t make you hack at all. What a waste. We got So many gifts saving those upc on the packs! Oh well hell! I quess they always have to mess things up huh😉
