Because the cost of cigarettes is so high in the USA, you may want to consider switching to cigars. Filtered Cigars are similar to cigarettes in their construction, but they have two unique features that differentiates them from cigarettes. As you can see from the picture below, they are wrapped in tobacco, rather than paper. And the tobacco blend in these cigars is also different from a typical cigarette. So they look and taste a bit different than cigarettes. Pictured below: Red Buck Menthol filtered cigars
