Sorry I don't know Canadian brands and your buying patterns (pack, carton, etc), but, have you asked or frequented a local tobacco shop where you live and asked there?

Here in the UK you can buy rothmans blue or standard,and to my understanding blue means it's more mild,it's what I smoke. So get the red if your looking for stronger cigarette.

Careful, you better double check the meaning of the colors. Some European brands, specifically Gauloises, Blue is "full flavor" and Red is "light." Could be the same with Rothmans? Why not google your question?

I'm glad you posted because it made me doubt myself. I just found out that rothmans blue is the stronger cigarette. It contains a higher amount of nicotine and is full flavoured.

I actually suspected that ... but wasn't absolutely certain. That's why I mentioned Gauloises, which I was certain about.

I wish I had tried Rothmans when I was in England about 17 or 18 years ago. But I stuck with what was familiar and only bought Benson & Hedges (that is, after the cigarettes I brought with me from the U.S. ran out).

So far as trips to Canada are concerned, I never stayed long enough to run out of what I brought with me, so I never bought any while in Canada. I think the longest stay I ever had in Canada was 12 days.

You don't really wan't to, they have a chemical taste and the smoke is quite harsh on the throat. They are a cheap fix of nicotine and that is all. I'm surprised I was able to smoke them over the past few months.
However, good news, today i picked up 4 packs of Lambert @ Butler gold (lights) which I'm about to smoke, and I'm looking forward to it.They are one of the top three brands in the UK, so can't be bad.

Btw, what's the difference between Rothmans and Rothmans International?

"Cheap fix"? I've heard that Rothmans was one of the most expensive U.K. brands. Or is that Rothmans International?

I thought rothmans international was the name of the British tobacco company that produced rothmans and other brands before it was taken over by another company during the 90's or early 2000's.?
As far as the price,rothmans is actually one of the cheapest brands. You can buy a pack of 20 for around 8.Lambert and butler cost 10 or you can buy a multi pack of 5 for 50 in the local supermarkets,which is where I get mine from. The most expensive brand is marlboro red and gold which costs over 12.50 per pack...ouch

I believe you're right about the name of the manufacturer, but there are different Rothmans and Rothmans International brands. See picture of the respective packs below:



The Rothmans International pack (right) looks like what you'd expect for an expensive, high-end brand.
