[quote=“cdnmagic”][quote=“j99l88e77”]I forget the name. It’s the white pack. Pai So (Pai Sang/Cang So?) or something. They also have a yellow pack one, but they are way too harsh. People say they are smelly, but those are what I smoked. They were only 35 NT a pack two years ago.
Anway, Taiwanese cigs are much better than Korean. I’m smokin’ Mild Seven Lights now. Was smokin’ a not near-decen Korean one, but they discontinued it. I was probably the only person in Korean who bought them.[/quote]
I think the white/yellow packs are LONG LIFE cigs. All the LONG LIFE brands are harsh…they are all cheap, but don’t believe the name…they should be called SHORT LIFE!
Taiwan (Asia) is a hard place to quit smoking. All cigs are pretty cheap (compared to N.America). Although I think a lot of places are becoming more ‘smoke free’, which is a good thing.[/quote]
The white ones aren’t too bad. The yellow ones are just brutal. Anyway, I’ll bet Taiwanese smokes aren’t as bad for you as North American ones. Probably less or no chemicals in them.
I think that pure tobacco is more apt to make you cough than the mixed kind. At least when it’s dry. Dry tabaccy makes you cough. And whose telling how old some of the smokes they got at these betlenut shacks or mom and pop stores.
When I first got to Taiwan, I smoked Davidoff’s. I think they’re a Swiss make. I used to think they were German until a German told me they were Swiss. They weren’t too bad, but cost more. My friend called them Hasslehoff’s. Classic. Do you get it? David Hasslehoff? Germany? Ha!
