Top Ten Grossest Cigarette Brands

Just a list of the worst cigarette brands in the world.

The Top Ten

1 Pall Mall

I was just given half a pack of Pall Mall Orange for free by my coworker because she said they were awful. I lit one up and at first couldn't even taste anything or feel the smoke. Too bad it didn't stay that way. They just have a dirty after-taste.

The Brand 305's needs to go on your list. You can only buy them in Florida...but damn! They smell horrible and so much more! - marbgirl

Easily one of the worst smelling cigarettes out there. When I smoke 100's I like to smoke half and put it out and save the half for later, this cigarette makes it impossible to do without REEKING. Absolutely gross. I prefer Marlboro Gold Special Blend any day!

Me and my friends were strapped on cash so there was a week where we all switched to Pall Malls. Shortly after we finished that pack we all fell sick, sore throats and such. Also, it tasted like smoking soggy cardboard.

It taste like paper..

2 Newport

They killed me once

My roommate smokes these in my 3 season porch and they SMELL AWFUL! It also lingers. Lingers on clothes, in bedrooms, in my porch. It's so gross. Pay the extra money and buy better quality cigarettes people! Unless you want to smell like a rotting ashtray.

I smoke half a pack a day and started off on these kind. They're my favorite

I've tried other brands and even some generic white filter(yuck) newport's (soft pk shorts) my brand any other brand just taste and smell awfull

3 Ruili River

I don't know who is cheaper... The smoke or the smoker

Kindly print manufacturers name and place
(Country) on the pack. This brand will get popularity fast.

I bought 2000 of the things, feels like I have a permanent tongue scrape, anyway trying to give up so these may help, I've smoked a lot of cheap in the past with no issues but theses, no idea what's in them.

I just love this

4 Native

Got a carton of these and I thought "not to bad for the price" Into my second carton I was coughing and my lungs filed up worth fluid. What ever they are doing it is wrong just wrong. Went back to my usual brand and these issues cleared right up YUCK

If you want to know what a native tastes like, roll up some sawdust and smoke that. It will be just as harsh and awful tasting as this sorry excuse for a cigarette.

Poorly wraped. Gross Tasting tobaco. Cheap filters. break easy. #1 worst - JBGuitarMAN

100% worst smell and taste. True test of one's mental health... if you smoke these, you're sick.

5 Maverick

These deserve the #2 slot, in my opinion. I'm pretty sure the tobacco used in Mavericks has all been eaten off the floor of a chicken coop by a fat farm dog, then pooped out into a bucket of vomit, before being dried on the floor of a Tijuana strip club that was recently used for a donkey show. It is then swept up with a moldy broom and stored in old septic tanks until it is finally rolled into cigarettes 16 years later.

These almost made me quit smoking after trying only two of them. I gave the pack away to some bum at McDonald's begging change. NEVER smoke these. They have some pungent off-chemical type of smell to them and blowing out the nose will actually burn your sinus. Horrible.

Tried these when I was younger. One of the worst tasting cigarettes in my opinion. My friend bought them because they were cheap. I won't touch cigarettes anymore because I'm way more health-conscious now but these should be in the #1 spot.

A maintenance guy at my office smokes these. Never has a cigarette smell made me so sick - and he doesn’t even smoke them in the office!

6 Camel

Camel's are not nasty and by far one of the most expensive cigarettes out there. Their line of tobacco is good and doesn't leave an awful taste in your mouth. I'd like to meet the idiot who put Camel on the list and shove a broom up his ass.

Camels one of the best cigarettes I ever smoked I don't believe it deserve a spot here they are wrapped nicely and don't leave a bad after taste and the tobacco is great all around the cigarette is well balanced and you actually enjoy smoking it not too weak or strong

The biggest problem was when Camel changed their tobacco blend in 2008. Their pre-2008 blend was fantastic and I long for the day they bring them back, if they ever do.

Camel shouldn't be on this list. The only thing that would make them better is to bring back the damn Camel Frost cigarettes. I miss them so much.

7 Pyramid

Absolutely disgusting. No matter how long youve been smoking. these ones burn your throat inhaling and exhaling. And smell like crap. - JBGuitarMAN

Lit one from a fresh pack and it tasted odd then noticed a hole in the paper so I opened the cigarette and dumped out the tobacco and found 20 little beatle looking bugs in it. Straight NASTY and gas station where I just bought them wont take the hole pack back and refund me. Wish I knew who to contact regarding this nasty issue

Pyramid red was the first cigarette I ever smoked (although this was not my first time smoking, as I used to smoke Black and Mild). Anyway, they made me want to never smoke cigs again, until my friend talked me into a Marlboro. That's when I realized cigarettes aren't gross, just pyramid cigarettes

Stop smoking

8 Wave

I smoke waves slivers and love them

Waves are the best you can buy for the money

Honestly what are these even. I can't deal with this insanity.

9 Timeless Time

The red 100s aren't terrible for when you're broke. $36 a carton's a good deal but I prefer my Marlboro Blacks for sure. These are a little bland.

Smoke them over seas and now they here but they hard to find... Can we bring them more to market

I really like timeless time 100s menthol

Smoked a few Timeless Times and now I've been sick for a week straight. They are one step away from little cigars. I would not even call these cigareties they are a nicotine alternative. Worst cigarette ever.

10 Sandia

You pretty much smoke paper were I live in Texas the cost about 2$ there nasty..

The Contenders

11 Silk Cut

By far the worst, especially the Purples. Nasty and cheap tasting.

12 Surya

Made in Nepal. World class cigarette, made from finest tobacco. "Surya classic" is one of the best cigarette.

Best cigarettes ever

13 Peter Jackson Peter Jackson Sir Peter Robert Jackson is a New Zealand filmmaker and screenwriter. He is best known as the director, writer and producer of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy, both of which are adapted from the novels of the same name by J. R. R. Tolkein. He is also known for cult films like Bad more.

They taste like ass, make you extremely light headed and you can barely take in more than one puff without coughing. My first cig brand was marlboro so peter jackson was the biggest downgrade.

Peter Jackson is by far more disgusting than eating out a sibling

Peter Jacksons Lighting Theif cigs are godly horrible! They taste like a lighting bolt hit it and burnt it to crisp

14 Marlboro

The most overrated brand out there. Burn fast and the taste gets old really fast. Don't get the big following, people just follow them for there popularity.

Marlboro is one of the best smokes out there. The new Marlboro Menthol Blacks are delicious and don't leave a lingering aftertaste.

I don't understand Marlboro's popularity. The flavor is bad, they burn fast and unevenly, and the smoke is way too harsh.

They cost too much and all you're buying is the name. I have long switched to a new brand.

15 Smoking Joes

My mouth tastes like a ashtray after smoking these.

Not good. At all. They taste as if you're smoking year old dried pine needles out of an old muffler. They made me kinda quesy also. Where I live, generally, the tweakers usually like them. I'm sure it's their top rated cigarette of choice, but I would never be the one to place a misnomer of "quality tobacco" on this not even sub-par taste. Sorry but needs improvement.

I know someone who smokes these and it smells like a rotten possum in a dirty diaper with burning perm hair. Her cough gurgles like an old buick with too much oil and a gastank full of diesel straight out of the exxon valdez. I would rather smell a beached humpback that just ate a ton of month old septic tampons from a 3rd world country. The exhaled smoke literally looks like a skull and crossbones, and the house has cancer.

One of the worst cigarettes I’ve ever had tastes horrible and after smoking a couple I wanted to puke don’t ever buy these

16 Grand Prix

I can't stand the bad after taste and the smoking them makes me feel the cancer developing

ok. not too bad. but could be better. don't deaserve to be a good brand though. - JBGuitarMAN

Very much like smoking ass.

One of my first packs of cigarettes lol and by golly there foul! I agree I felt the cancer forming rapidly lol I am surprised tourny brand didn't make the list and what is a "Ruili River" come on people smoke a Marlboro for your own sakes. All smoking may cause cancer but id rather enjoy getting cancer than smoking dirt and getting cancer. #cowboykiller

17 More

I'm smoking for 5 years and I've came across many unpleasant cigarettes, but this wins my vote

18 Edgefield

I bought 2 cartons back in February, and just now (June) stopping the awful cough. Tore me up. Don't now what is in this product, but deadly.

Complete trash in cardboard.

Just got a pack today they have a metallic taste like smoking a roll of pennys I'd rather smoke pall Mall orange (2 to worst cigarettes in the world these being worst) back to the trusty pipe tobacco

I switched from marlboro to edgefield. it tasts good so far.

19 Doral

Just plain awful! Have smoke many brands in my many years of smoking ( 35 ) and I have to ask and wonder if the tobacco came from the tobacco drying warehouse floor! Just can't do it threw them out!

My moms been smoking these forever and honestly horrible in my opinion I smoked a few and eventually you just wanna puke

These are laughable. They deliver if your a budget smoker. Better than Pall Malls.

Good smoke I started smoking them when a carton cost 9.50

20 Bronco

So nasty bro like a old mans rectum covered in hair

21 Sky Dancer

not to good on regulars. but there menthol isn't bad. - JBGuitarMAN

Trying the Premium Black 100s, smooth taste, relatively slow burning. Burns down to the filter. Better than 305s and cheaper. I prefer Winston White, but the price varies from store to store. So I am trying these. Not bad! Thanks for the forum!

22 Bridgeport
23 Monte Carlo

These are the beat


24 Lucky Strike

Bought a brick in Greece because they were cheap, non menthol, it's two hours since I smoked one and I still taste in my mouth

Lovely cigarettes!

25 Winston

Literally is like a laxative

Good smoke compared to the rest

Smells and tastes like burnt licorice it's so grosa

Marlboro is #1 worst,... Winston is 2nd! I can literally smell the addction added heavy metals in both!

26 JPS

No nice tobacco flavour just chemical disgusting and smell repulsive they have a gritty after taste. In Aus JPS is a budget smoke and you get what you pay for, definitely never again I smoke for pleasure and these make you not want to smoke because they are pretty nasty like all budget cigarettes. Stick to quality cigarettes that taste like real tobacco and not burning coal!

Just awful tasting, bought them as I was a little low on cash and they were a cheap alternative, but I had 2 and threw the rest away, leaves a dirty taste in your mouth that I could only get rid of by brushing my teeth straight after, makes me wanna give up

Yuk yuk yuk horrible I don't think it's even tobacco just stalks off some plant and just all chemical tastes like something made in china

Grossest things ever.

27 Eagle 20's

Worse than pall mall.

So gross. Found myself realizing I wasn't enjoying my much loved smoke time at all. Terrible...Terrible taste. Like old cardboard that lingers on tongue. Burnt extremely fast like the cigs were made out of marshmallow or something. And absolutely unpackable. If buy, will regret it! Spend the extra dollar and actually enjoy yourself.

I've been to China and smoked disgusting packs of cigarettes for about 6.5 yuan (about $1 USD) and they taste better than Eagle 20's

They aren't that bad if you need to save money in between pallets malls and l&M's if you can picture that on a scale.

28 Gold Flake

Best cigs ever, once u go gold flake, u never go back!

Worst I have ever smoked..

29 Amber Leaf
30 Winfield

I love winfield blue here in Australia they are an icon. I don't think they should be on the list.


31 Manchester

Tastes like I'm inhaling pure plastic

32 Exeter

I'm broke until Friday so I scraped up $3 in change, walked into the gas station and asked the clerk what the cheapest pack of cigarettes were. She pulled out Exeter Menthols and I bought them. My throat burns every time I take a drag and they give me a minor headache. The after taste is not good either.

Bottom Line: The WORST smelling cigarette! Everything the Exeter cigarette smoke comes into contact with STINKS! Even the second hand smoke from the cigarettes gives you a sore throat.

Worst smelling, tasting, and existing cigarettes in the universe super cheap but still not worth the cash

33 Akhtamar

Natural tobacco flavour

34 Kool

Love these, it's like a Newport and Marlboro menthol but better to me. THESE are GOOD

Delicious smooth taste. One of the first cigarettes that I ever smoked.

Disgusting. Gave half of a pack away because I couldn't finish them.

Best out there

35 SKL
36 Benson & Hedges

Menthal lights are the best

I just switched from newport mentol kings to thease and the full flavord menthol (premium) are pretty good kinda exspensive I think the most exspensive out the but you pay for a good tobbaco its still not good for you but if your going to smoke smoke a good brand leave the cheap tobbacos alone

37 Canadian Classics

Canadian Classics are easily one of the best cigarettes available in Canada. They aren't as smooth as a Camel, but they're way better than anything else available where I live.

Number one for me

They are ok. just ok.

38 Wills
39 Echo

Absolutely the worst cigarette ever to exist. my grandma and this tweaker dude I used to know smoke these and those are the only type of people I'd expect enjoy these cigarettes

Echo is awful in many ways. It's cheap but poor quality of cigs with awful blend of leaves.
Way to much Tar.
It literally tasted like something from a 30 year old rusty exhaust pipe

40 Parliament

What is this taste? Makes me nauseous. Tastes like chemicals

Absolute crap

Too light for the price

Smooth but menthols burn really fast.

41 Yours
42 Salem

Smooth as silk and no after taste.

Smooth as silk curtains

I been smoking these for a year now and I think these kill you faster I been having really bad chest pain from a year for Salems


43 Cheyenne

I don't personally like these but ill smoke them if I'm really desperate id rather smoke criss cross though

Taste like garbage to me worst cigarettes ever

44 Dunhill

Dunhill blue is my pleasure taste to smoke

That's if you get the international one

The box is ugly and too wide

Over priced

45 Crowns

Crowns are great. No after taste and cheaper and taste better than marlboro lights

Worst one ever made by Circle k

Made me and another Co-worker sick. Like bloody mucus sneezing and upset stomach with horrible diarrhea. Never buying another pack again.

They have a stale taste and terrible after taste and I work for circle k I can say that laugh out loud

46 Checkers

Taste like rolled up cat litter.

47 Basics

It's basically a strong Marlboroand cheaper. Not too bad.

48 West
49 Four Square

Foresquare crush is the best mint flavoured cig ever produced. Dosen't finish quickly, smooth and rich taste, hits like a small current on every drag. Just love it!

50 Marlboro Reds

Marlboro Red shorts hardpack is my cigarette of choice and to put this brand up is straight up cigarette blasphemy. MARLBORO MAN is rolling in his golden grave. Listen, If you strike you a pack of these you are a cur above the rest.

A smoke to die for.
