“ A full, smooth smoke - Lambert and Butler are a popular choice amongst smokers. „
As a smoker for about sixty years I have tried many brands of cigarette but for a number of years have stuck to L & B. and have no complaints about the product - - however the introduction of the slide type packaging has almost convinced me to give up smoking altogether. Why anyone should wish to change a package which is basic, simple, and satisfactory seems a strange idea, the new packet must require more folding and seems to use slightly more paper and is less convenient for the smoker.Please return to the old style.
The new packaging is dreadful. For a start the cellofane is really difficult to remove, the so called easier push up is anything but. The new colours are so similar it makes it difficult for shop assistants to differentiate between the two strengths. Please return to the original packets or after all these years I will have to change to another brand.
As a smoker of Lambert & Butler Silver, I am so pleased to see that the original packets are back. I dislike the push up packs, and would go to different shops to find someone who still sold the old packets. Please don't change the packets again
I HAVE BEEN SMOKING L&B GOLD FOR QUITE A NUMBER OF YEARS. THE CIGARETTES THEMSELVES ARE PERFECT IN FLAVOUR, SIZE AND STRENGTH. IF A RETAILER HAS NO STOCK I WOULD RATHER GO ELSWHERE THAN TAKE A SUBSTITUTE! HOWEVER THE NEW PACKS THAT HAVE RECENTLY BEEN INTRODUCED ARE IN MY OPINION APPALLING, WHEN OPENING A NEW PACK THEY DO NOT LIFT UP AS THEY SHOULD AND WHEN THE PACK IS GETTING LOW THE SLIDER COLLAPSES ONTO THE CIGARETTES. I HAVE RESORTED TO PULLING THE CIGS UP BY THE FOIL BUT IN THE END IT MAKES MATTERS WORSE AS IT DISTORTS THE PACK.ONE GOOD THING IT STOPS YOU SMOKING WHILE DRIVING AS IT TAKES TWO HANDS TO GET A CIGGY OUT.IF THIS IS THE FUTURE THEN I WILL HAVE TO FIND A SUBSTITUTE AS DEALING WITH THESE PACKS 20-30 TIMES A DAY IS EXTREMLEY FRUSTRATING.
Lambert & Butler, L & B & Lambert are all common names for this brand of cigarette. A pack of 20 is retailling for £5.85 at the moment in the shops local to me. They have a special £5.85 sticker on the cling film wrap part so normally they might be a few more pence dearer. This has been my favourite brand for quite a while now. To me they are not to strong and not to light, they are just about right. Its horrible when you have a cig and it feels like your sucking a straw because they are so light! This is definitley not one of those brands. Its also not as strong as some of the other brands like Embassy or B & H Gold. This brand is my happy medium. In the mornings I do notice that my breath and mouth can feel pretty dirty but I think that would be the same no matter what fag brand you smoked!
I do find that from time to time you get the odd cigarrette that bellows with smelly smoke, this is normally due to a huge chip of tobacco in the cigarette. These occurrences are few and far inbetween but it does happen occasionly. The packaging isn't to bad either, pretty standard really - you have the cellophane around the box, rip that off then open the box, then rip off the foil around the cigs then walla you have access to the cancerous sticks!!!
I strongly advise no one to start smoking as it is highly addictive and really isn't a nice taste. Its also expensive and life threatening. I plan to stop in the new year. I first started smoking when I was 19, stopped when I was 22 then started again when I was 23. I am now 25. Smoking is highly annoying.... I like it but at the same time I hate it because of the health implictions.
No apologies for this review, whatsoever.
I am now in my eighth year as a recovering smoker, and in that time I haven't succumbed. I used to smoke L and B which are a pretty much of a muchness in terms of flavour, etc., and far better than that dogshyte that some foreigners have to put up with. The inhale is smooth and sure, with a guarantee of a more or less instanteneous hit when the nicotine gets in to your bloodstream, and then whacks the pleasure receptors in your neural pathways scant moments later. Shame about the ensuing cough, though ...
Sure, these things are now extremely expensive, which may account for me switching to roll ups before I quit for good, and risking my health even more. In the end, L and B ended up killing my mate Phil with lung cancer at the tender age of 43, leaving a young wife and daughter less than a year old. But, hey, the packet is a nice glossy colour, and they're extremely easy to light up.
Lambert & Butler Filter King Cigarettes (L&B)
Before you read this review please stop smoking or don't start. As smoking is the worst thing you could do to harm your body. It is the biggest killer in the U.K. Smoking kills more people than Heroin.
I used to smoke L&B ciggarettes until around two or three months ago. Then I changed to Mayfair Dark's King Size. But now I have quit for three weeks. But L&B ciggarettes in my opinion they are a nice cigarette but if you smoked Regal or Mayfair. Or any strong cigarette you couldn't smoke L&B. They are nice but they are pricey and you can't get a drag from them you have to inhale it for maybe 4 to 5 seconds to get a proper drag. (Well I had to). As Mayfair or Regal you only have to take 2 second drag. Mayfair is cheaper than L&B cigarettes and alot nicer. L&B cigarettes can kill you quicker as it is one of the worst cigarettes you can smoke. It's got more carbon monoxide than any other cigarette. So please do not smoke. But Lambert & Butler Filter King Cigarettes is good cigarettes when you get a drag from them they are a nice tasting cigarette. But as my sister says "Lambert & Butler is for old people".
Lambert & Butler Filter King Cigarettes is a good tasting cigarette but it is one of the worst and dearest cigarettes you can buy. But I smoked them for two and a half years. Prices based on 20 cigarettes are from £5.00 to £5.40.
First let me say one thing, I dont promote smoking in any way, and I fully acknowledge the harm that smoking has on peoples health. However the fact is that people smoke, myself included, and they're likely going to continue to smoke for a long time to come. So as long as people smoke there might aswell be reviews for smokers to get the best product for their money. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, on to my review.
I came late to smoking, at the age of 17. After spending most of my life trying to convince my mother to quit I finally succame to peer pressure and took my first ever drag. I first began by smoking Regal, which I quickly realised were incredibly harsh on my throat, and left a strange taste in my mouth. After years of trying many different brands, I finally settled on Lambert and Butler cigarettes. Where other cigarettes had made my throat feel raw and left a sickly taste in my mouth, Lambert and Butler did not. Also I have noticed that Lamberts appear to be a better constructed product. The filter is effective and the cigarettes aren't too tightly packed with tobacco, as so many other brands are.
Obviously no matter which brand you smoke, cigarettes are highly addictive. The tar and cancer causing chemicals are still present, but if you must smoke then I highly reccomend Lambert and Butler.
I have been smoking for quite some time now and have always smoked lambert & butler but recently the quality in the cigarettes have been terrible the filters have been to loose and the taste is dreadfull i hope yous resolve this very quickly as i have had to change to another brand because of this thanks
Firstly, let me say that i do not like to promote smoking, but these are a good quality cigarette. Most shops that sell cigarettes will sell this brand and have been quite a big name for a while, they are a good price but still are more expensive than other brands that i prefer such as Mayfair or Richmond.
However if i ever have that extra money to spend on a better back, L&B is definatly my choice, they aren't too strong and suit my smoking needs, they even do a Gold edition which has less Tar, Nicotine and Carbon Monoxide; personally i feel that it seems your are smoking air when you try these but they are good if you are trying to cut down or even trying quit.
L&B is a leading brand name of UK cigarettes and as far as i am aware the filters are also made by a company in the UK called Celenese; however i am not 100% sure. So a good UK Cigarette, smoking is not a good thing but if your going to do it; like me you'll want to enjoy it.
Lambert and Butler are cigarettes that are sold in most shops and newsagents. They come in packs of twenty or ten (unless your in Ireland, where you can only get them in twentys!), and you can also get supersize lamberts, which can be good for sharing, or lambert golds, which are 'half fat' fags!
They come in silver packets, which are sleek and shiny, and look the part, although they do now contain the health warnings found on most cigs, and some of the pictures can be off-putting, however that is the primary reason they are there!
They are cheaper than other cigs available, which is part of the reason why I smoke them, although the quality isn't compromised.
The cigs themselves are a nice smoke, not too harsh. They save well, and are still good to smoke if you've had one left out for a while. These cigs are great to have and smoke, but I couldn't recommend smoking them, because that would be immoral?!
Now firstly I do not think smoking is a good idea and I honestly wish that I had never started but since this is a ciggerette review chance are whoever is reading this already smokes, if not then don't start you'll regret it later.
When I first started smoking at a teenager it was a Lambert and Butler ciggerette that I first tried and I was hooked pretty much from day one.
They have recently been repackaged in a fancy new shiny silver box which looks really good.
I smoke the superkings as it means I can smoke half at a time which means they last longer, saving me money. Always great when in the middle of a credit crunch.
They contain 10mg Tar, 0.9mg Nictotine and 10mg Carbon Monoxide.
They are a nice strong cigerette without being harsh on the throat which is just what you need first thing in the morning.
Now they are expensive, all ciggerette's are anyway but Lambert and Butler are one of the more dearer ones. There not the most expensive but there certainly not the cheapest.
I have smoked many different brands during my years but I've always come back to Lambert and Butler. I've smoked these for 10 years now and wouldn't smoke anything else.
Remember smoking is a very expensive habbit and bad for your health so it's never wize to start, if like me you havn't got the willpower to quit then you can't go wrong with these.
Lambert & Butler cigarettes are very popular in my home town, infact nearly every smoker in my circle of friends buys them and me too!
My first experience of a 'Lambert' king size came at the age of 14 or 15. Not an advisable thing to ever start smoking and I regret it to this day as it has become a very expensive addiction these day's. A twenty pack of these particular cigarettes can often come to a much as £5.50 in some outlets, and ten can cost around £2.60.
Not to mention the habit's obvious health risks, on the Lambert box (and the rest of them) you are constantly reminded of the serious risks to your health in the form of huge white banners, on the front and back. Taking up most of the boxes room for design.
The overall design of the packaging is quite eyecatching and appealing on the shiny silver limited edition box. The gleem of the shine almost reflects like a rainbow from a glass prism.
The logo on the lid of the box is just simply a L&B, with king size written underneath in its own seperate box.
A black and blue sasche runs through the middle of the box displaying the words lambert & butler in white upper case text.
On the back, squashed inbetween the UK duty paid sign and the smoking health risk are the words 'premier edition' with the companies claim of being '10 years as the UK's number 1 brand' written underneath, both in bold upper case text.
In a small white box along the right handside of the box (next to the barcode), you will find information on the content of the cigarettes. This particular incarnation of Lambert and Butler brand contains:
10 mg Tar
0.9 mg Nicotine
10 mg Carbon Monoxide
Tar and carbon monoxide are the two most harmful components of a cigarette, without contemplating all of the other 'unknown substances' that may also be included which, overtime will damage your lungs and may even lead to cancer. Nicotine is the 'addictive' element of the cigarette.
Smoking is an addiction I am not personally proud of,but having started out with this brand then straying to others, I have always come back. Lambert's have a depth of taste like no other I have sampled.
With some other cigarettes, the filter ends can tend to be a little to rigid. Which lead's to not being able to get a hefty enough drag of it, not these though. Lambert and Butler filters and the best I have tried.
When I'm out of town and I produce a box of these from my pockets, it can be met with mixed opinion when offering them around, many people tend to think that Lambert's are harsh cigarettes, but I am inclined to disagree. I find the whole experience of smoking one of these quite smooth and relaxing, not harsh at all. Maybe in previous years these cigarettes may have developed a bad reputation for their rough style, but certainly not now.
Im not one to condone smoking, but if your already hooked and looking for a new brand, give these little fella's a try. You might be pleasantly surprised.
I've smoked Lambert and Butler silver cigarette's for about 10 years now, from back in the day at school, trading cigarette's or 'tabs' for 20p each with each other until you'd sold 7 which meant you had enough for another box of 10 while still having 3 for yourself, then off to the shop again to re-start the process. That was a long long time ago now but still fresh in my memory.
Since then alot has changed. I left school years ago, Labour are in power, 'tabs' cost over £5 a box, but my stress relieving silver box of L&B is still the same (yeah well maybe it's slightly repackaged, and the stress relieving part is just when the cravings stop when your smoking lol). Not expensive, not cheap, sort of a middle of the road price which is as fair as possible with the amount of tax we pay (don't get me started). They are not too harsh, but strong enough to get a kick.
Packaged (as I've said) in a silver box, often with a type of hologram effect on, 'Lambert and Butler' is written across the box in white writing on top of a black strip with 2 blue lines through. There is a 'L&B' logo on the top half of the front with 'king size' wrote underneath. The back of the box says 'UK Duty Paid' and 'Premier Edition 10 years as the UK's no.1 brand', while both front and back bear government health warnings. They come in packs of 20 or 10, although can be found packaged up in larger numbers.
They contain (among other things) -
10 mg Tar
10 mg Carbon Monoxide
I would give these 5 stars but since the obvious health threats they cause can only give them 4.
i absolutely adore lambert and butler silver, the best cigarette i have ever smoked, not the cheapest on the market but not the most expensive either. taste really good, dont burn the throat, 10mg tar, 0.9 nicotine, 10mg Carbon monoxide best combination ever. love the new shiny box, as the uks leading brand for 10 years! i would definately reccomend these as when i started smoking when i was 13 i smoked bnh gold, and wasnt keen, then went through a stage of smoking whatever i could get, then someone gave me a lnb silver and i have not ever gone back. really enjoy them,.. dont know what else to say apart from dont smoke its bad, and if you think u wont get addicted you are kidding yourself trust me been there got the tshirt and burned it, im about as addicted as you can get. But if you do decide to start, LAMBERT AND BUTLER SILVER IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO. i pay £5.20 for a 20 deck. thakkss
