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.

We think Filtered Cigars are fantastic! And we want everyone who smokes to try them, because they are such a good value. Order up a carton of filtered cigars by clicking on the link below.
