Meskie! Polish tobacco review....

One of the pleasures of being in Poland is being able to smoke inside (plus all the warnings are in Polish...they might say something nice) , also the fact that nearly everyone you meet smokes too, my cohorts Nathan and Owen took the sensible route of buying huge amounts of things like Camel and Davidoff cigarettes, I stupidly, tried to buy the cheapest. When a tobacconist in Krakow makes a concerned face when you ask for 'Meskie' and says 'Strong?!' you'd best listen, I did not, and thought it would be fun to do a budget polish cigarette review by taking various webcam pics acouple of nights ago ...it wasn't, observe:


*shudder*

First up, it's Casablanca, tips for visitors to Poland 1. don't buy tobacco based on liking the film, obviously the creator of these badboys doesn't remember what Humphrey Bogart died of and 2. don't buy them because the are 7.40 złoty which is about 2 pounds. They taste like bark that is on fire and are now hidden away in a shelf for dire emergencies, or whenever I want to look at the packet.

Second worst, Meskie....Meskie...ah dear, they are stubby wee cigarettes because, you can't actually finish one, they aren't cigarettes that'll kill you, yeah, they will, but they also immediately make you feel like you want to be dead...


ahh eck!....

oh dear, that's about as much as I can handle

Next up Rockets, ah Rockets, these were Okay, but only after Cascablanca and Meskie! these were about 1 pound a pack and alright. I dropped my pack somewhere while gigging, if anyone finds them, they can keep 'em...


Next up Domingo, I have actually finished this pack, they were probably as bad as Casablanca, but they were vanilla flavoured, would probably be best used in Shishas but it was alright



In conclusion Rockets and Domingo were joint winners, but they were all pretty horrible....

bye....

Are you paying over $5 / pack of cigarettes? I'm buying my cigs over at Duty Free Depot and I save over 50%.
