Amber Leaf Tobacco
Advantages: Medium strength, fresh
Disadvantages: Bad for your health
I was a bit hesitant about doing a review on Tobacco as smoking is not greatly popular these days. Also i have tried and failed to give up on a few occassions; im suppossed to be trying to give up again tommorrow! This is partly for health reasons and also due to the increased cost! Smoking in general is very expensive!
I have been smoking for quite a long time and generally smoke Tobacco most often. Basically because
i find it is alot cheaper than smoking cigarrettes! For example, for around a pack of 20 cigarrettes
it can cost about £6.00 + but for a 12.5g box of Amber leaf its around £3.50. I probably smoke about 20 roll ups per day and this small box will usually last me 3 days. I make very thin roll ups! Some people including my partner simply dont like Roll ups; i keep trying to tell my partner that he should smoke them rather than cigarrettes due to the cost! He is also suppossed to be giving up tommorrow! I have actually got the electronic cigarrete (which will be for another review).
Back to this Tobacco, as i have said it is medium strength and just right for me. I have had stronger Tobacco before and found i got more sore throats and coughed more with it; on the opposite way, i have also had weaker tobacco which basically is tastless.
I recently went to Florida and ran out of Amber leaf ( I was smoking this and Marlborough lights); i bought some Tobacco in USA which was very cheap, but it was not a nice taste; it was far too dry and far too strong; i was pleased to get back here and buy my Amber Leaf!
In each small box you also get 50 Rolling papers (saving you money on buying these separately).
Of course there are warnings on the box about how smoking can destroy your health and sometimes images too. I think this is the right thing to do so as to discourage people from taking it up.
You can also buy Amber Leaf in larger quantities which works out slightly cheaper.
Its difficult to recommend such a thing as Tobacco for obvious reasons! but if you are going to smoke, Amber Leaf is a good choice! 4 dooyoo stars from me.
Summary: A good tasting Tobacco
