Check out Savinellis. Many of them are filtered, either 9 or 6mm. They have some lower priced models that smoke incredibly well, and some higher priced models that smoke incredibly well. They use a balsa wood filter. After 2 or 3 smokes you toss it and grab another. I saw the thread and was going t...

Re: Latest Tobacco Purchase 2018

Here in Aus. tobacco prices are outrageous - $75 for a 50g tin (2oz) - as I'm on a limited income it certainly puts a strain on the budget. My tobacconist has a small range so I've been smoking Erinmore mixture & Dr Pats Irish mixture for several years since ditching the ciggies. They're both on the...
