Default Intro and question about non-additive cigs

Hi everyone,

I've long been attracted to the smell of tobacco since I was young and remember going into a local pipe/gentlemans store at a mall. I'm 27 years old now and after doing a lot of research and thinking about it I decided to give a try and have a smoke. A good friend of mine loved to smoke Djarum Blacks and whenever I smell cloves I think of her so I thought that would be a good place to start. Its been only a little over a week and I've been starting slow (about one every other night or few nights). I'm finding a relaxing smoke in the cool night air very enjoyable.

I've been thinking about trying another brand but was unsure about which brands were more my taste and which to stay away from. I was glad to find this site! As I was reading a review of Nat Shermans I noticed mention of non-additive cigarettes. Is there is list somewhere of which ones are additive free? And does it make that much of a difference in the flavor? Thanks!

~Drew

Well, most brands usually say "100 percent pure tobacco" or "All-Natural" on the pack/carton if they're additive-free.

If there is a list of additive free brands online, you might find it on Google. Most of the additive-free brands are Native American cig brands.

Winston's, believe it or not, are mass-produced and are additive free, as are American Spirits...I particularly like the Nat Sherman Mint cigarettes...i can't smoke a whole pack of them, but from time to time, they are "refreshing"

i used to love djarums, but then i got sick of the sweet clove smell and particularly the sweet filters, at first it hought they were great but after awhile i just didnt like it, its just me though because i came from a catholic home with the same kind of rosary smelling incense and yea.....

but additive free native americans is a try, though i do suggest golden virginia rolling tobacco, its avaiable online but expensive i usually pick them up when im traveling at duty free shops, they are so moist and dark so gooodd.........

Winstons and American Spirits actually were additive-free brands. I dunno if I'd call a brand additive-free if it's FSC. I recall one online smoker saying he had to stop smoking American Spirits ever since RJR made them a FSC brand.

Native cigs are anyone's best bet to find a USA brand that's truly additive-free...since those are the only non-FSC brands in the USA at all. Well, Kick is another non-FSC made in the USA but that's not available offline.

cool Jay, that is an excellent point! How can they keep marketing them as additive free if they are now Fire safe cigarette compliant! I hadn't thought about that, are they still printing that on the boxes??

I'm sure they are still printing those words on the boxes. The Winston site itself still promotes Winstons as additive-free cigs.
