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

It's taste. My god! It's amazing. Only if you are a smoker

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

Very good flavour and hard hitting. Love the taste and it is affordable.

3 Pall Mall

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

Satisfies the smoke and nicotine craving,
Burns nice and slow

I love Pall Mall. They burn slow and taste good, they're by far the best cigarettes to share with a friend. Although em they burn slowly, you still get a satisfying hit.

4 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'.

Luckies are good fookin cigs also try the raspberry and menthol one they're legendary

5 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!

Newport is always cheaper almost every where and the have non menthol

New Port gold shorts are the best. They have a great taste and are very smooth. They are the very best.

The best ever

6 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.

Been smoking for the last 10 years. Never even in the stretch of my imagination have ever I thought to smoke any other cigarette

The best of the best in my opinion. Must be Gold.

Which is the best cigarette suitable for all country weathers

7 Kool

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

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

My dad made me try my first cigarette at age 5 then got my first pack of Kool when I was 11 and still smoking Kool today, also after smoking for 5 years my son got his first pack of Kool cigarette so proud of him keep smoking.

8 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

Winston taste good like a cigarette should!

I used to smoke Marlboro but switched to Winston. I love the taste and is very smooth.

The new look is also incredibel!

9 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!

Just loved it

It has the delicious taste... so good

10 L&M

They are smoother than most cigarettes. Really a pleasure smoking them and not coughing.

Smooth and the smell isn’t intense and overpowering. L&M blue is the best out.

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.

The Contenders

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.

Parliament full flavors are the best cigarettes I have ever had. Such a pleasurable smoke. The taste, the recessed filter, everything about them is perfect. Worth the price 100%.

Parliament are the best cigarettes to smoke. But they do burn fast.They have a great smooth taste and strong but not too strong like Marlboro. They are a little pricey though. Love this cigarette.

The best tasting smoke around, but they burn way too fast!

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.

Very cigarette

That's just amazing

13 Natural American Spirit

I love American spirits, they should definitely be the number one spot, cleaner taste, I breathe better after smoking them compared to just about every other brand out there. The black, blue, and yellow packs are my favorites and I highly recommend the black pack if you want the biggest kick on the market.

The best! Almost $10 a pack here, but worth it. Very slow burning. Sent my son a pack, he says "who has time to smoke an American Spirit? "

Awesome cigarette especially the black, which is made with perique tobacco - they cost more but have equally more tobacco. Nothing like lighting up a cigarette with a zippo lighter.

..the black or grey Perique tobacco cigarettes are the best

14 Marlboro Red

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

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.

These are great! Smooth and amazing flavor,I recommend them to anyone that wants to start smoking or find a new brand. These and Blacks are my favorites.

I smoking marlboro since I was 14 I try many brands of cigarette and I always go back to marlboro by the way dunhill oso taste good and now I age 35 I like the after taste of marlboro it number 1 chose for me in the cigarette smoke on...

15 du Maurier

Best tasting and smooth
Also burn nicely

This is what I been smoking for a long time now

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

16 Rothmans

Amazing cigarette I'll never leave it

Best brand its own taste.

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.

Great full taste, using them for morning cafe!

17 Salem

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

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.

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

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

18 Kent

Simply perfect. Not too harsh and very very tasty. If your a full flavor smoker, then these are the perfect fit, personally I enjoy Navy Blue HD ones. Perfect body, perfect design and most of all, perfect taste.

Very Good!

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.

19 American Spirit

American Spirit cancer sticks are the bomb. These are some wicked harsh smokes. You gotta be a real man to smoke these - if you're female, you'll sound like a man within a month of starting to puff these wicked sticks - toughens up your throat and turns your vocal cords to leather. As for taste, American Spirit is like sucking in the smoke from a house fire - or maybe a chemical plant fire - it is HARSH. Man, I've smoked some gnarly Turkish smokes and some painful French cigs with the dark brown paper, but AS is like drawing in the concentrated smoke pouring off a burning house or car - has a weird 'burning plastic' component and a wood-burning background. I predict firemen will either love or absolutely hate this brand, as it smells like what they smell on the job at five-alarm warehouse fires or chemical plant blazes.

Long burn, nice flavor and a good price (depending on state tax laws on tobacco). American spirits beat out most brands I've tried, due to the fact they have a fresher taste to them and (as a cigar smoker) their burn time is admirable for cigarettes. I recommend you try the blues or turquoise (if you like a full bodied flavor) (if you like a soft flavor go for the yellow or gold) first and then try their menthol.

American Spirits are absolute heaven. Its all natural blended tobacco with no additives. They take about 8 minutes to burn so each cig is a commitment. Lites, full body, menthol, etc all of them are great. I've been smoking a pack a day for 7 years and my had a AS 2 weeks ago in the morning, I started buzzing so hard I almost fainted and had to sit down.. If that doesn't embody American Spirit cigarettes then I'm not sure what does.

Dark green menthol is a go damn perfect cig, 2.4 nicotine, slow even burn evertime, Newport 100 are the only thing close in my opinion, Kool 1oo menthol burn in a minute. But like I said AMERICA spirit full flavor menthol - dark green pack is something you'll never be unhappy with, nice, nice buzz, and if your on antidepressants like me, wait one hour and then have a smoke after your dose, it's heaven. But if you can't find them, Newport 100 is my next choice. Thanks peace

20 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

The best cigarette in the world

Better than benson hedges

21 Classic Regular

One of best I have smoked so far

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

Good cigrate

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

22 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.

Honestly not bad for the price

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

Thise sigrat use in makeing charas sigrate

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

27 Export A

Best rush, smoke goes down smoothly

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!

Amazing flavor and just the right strength.

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

Great cigarette

I started at 15 with smoking and this was my first brand, the smell is not that hard for the passive smokers around you, but it's still soft and tasteful.

I personaly started on these when I was 13 and love the vanilla flavour its not like a normall cigarette its softer and more tastefull

Top fags, smooth not harsh but flavour full

I like that much

Well you won't like it if you ain't a man!

U.S.A GOLD ARE THE BOMB BRAH!..Never go without.. menthol light 100's...smooth as glass and fresh as the spring rain brah!

Like a lot But very hard time finding them.

They are very underrated. Cheap, burn kinda quick but it hits You pretty good. Great quality tobacco.

31 Akhtamar

Legendary cigarettes Akhtamar have become very popular due to their quality and demand in the world. Since Soviet times, they are not only considered the best cigarettes, but is a welcome gift for those who appreciate quality cigarette. Produced in Armenia.

Akhtamar is my cigarette.

My father smokes Akhtamar over 10 years

I think not only Akhtamar, but also other Armenian cigarettes are better than any Marlboro, Camel or Parliament. I heard that they content only pure Brazilian tobacco.

32 Silk Cut

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.

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!

Where do I buy these cigarette brand

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

35 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

36 Milds

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

Nice brand in classic I'm lover of milds

Just the best, not too hard or too light, its classic mild...

One of the smoothest and best among all other brand.

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.

43 Maverick

I started out as a Marlboro Red kinda girl way back when, once the prices were jacked up I switched and happened to go between Basics and Mavericks, Now I can only smoke Maverick Light 100's. All others make me sick. They have a much smoother taste and not the awful burnt after taste of the Basics.

Not a bad smoke better than newports

Maverick very cheap and light cigarette menthols have a clean menthol taste unlike Newport menthols that have a dirt taste I would really compare them to Marlboro menthols just a little lighter

The best!

My choice of smoked

They taste really strong believe it or not.

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

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

I tried these in Japan, for first time in life, that too in the windy winter... I fell in love with this...

THE Best ever.. As it does not make you cough... And it can be taken smoothly...

Had these back when my friend got a pack from Korea. Smooth and delicious.

I have tasted almost all the brands mentioned here and undoubtedly mild seven is the best among all. Better on taste and flavor, easy on the smell. But it's hard to find it here in the US and that sucks.

I feel sorry for the fact that I had to scroll so much to find sobranie. Definitely the best taste, the best looks, and it's got the best balance between strong and light cigarettes, especially the short black sobranie's.

Without a doubt the best cigarettes with an amazing flow filter

Ambo is the way to go

The taste of heaven with every pull,
Make you dream back to the old country
and to when you were a young boy.

Not very nice baccy I don't like the taste to be honest it is dry and poorly blended go for GOLDEN VIRGINA it is the best rolling tobacco ever and the pack is resealable so the fresh taste can be reserved
