Advantages: Smooth, Tasty, Smells sweet, cheaper than manufactured cigs, doesnt hurt your throat, good niccy hit
Disadvantages: Slightly more expensive than other hand rolling baccys
If like me you switched to roll ups to avoid the ridiculous price of Straights in the UK, then Golden Virginia is the only tobacco you should use. I used to smoke Lambert and Butler Kings until I made the switch.
Slightly dearer than other tobaccos at £2.70 for a 12.5g pouch, it is well worth it.
The reason being is that this tastes better than any other tobacco, is smoother and less harsher on the throat than other tobaccos, I have tried them all, Old Holborn (Tears your throat to shreds), Samson (OK, but not quite there), Cutters Choice (Simply, Horrible) among others.
It is a smooth, beautiful smoke with a lovely smell and no added chemicals, meaning it is less harmful to your health (Not that I am bothered, honestly) but gives you a great nicotine hit!
Also, roll ups are thinner and less packed than other cigarettes meaning less harm (Again, I'm not bothered, if you want to smoke, then smoke! Its your choice, nobody else's).
Also, this comes in a re-seal able pack, meaning it retains its fantastic moistness for much longer.
I used to smoke regular cigs until I found out about rolling machines and saw how much I could save, ive never gone back, but I wouldn't go back even if the price was the same because regular cigs are tasteless and chemical filled.
I smoke these with Swan slimline filter tips and rizla green regular papers and find this combination gives the best taste.
Another advantage is that your breath doesn't stink with these either, which is an advantage if your out on the pull!
All in all, if you smoke Go for it! If you don't then go for it if you want. Your choice, not the governments or any non smokers either.
Note : I am not encouraging non-smokers to take up the habit, I am merely presenting my point of view.
Summary: Smooth n tasty, if you smoke, you should smoke this.
