Camel Dark Mint

Like Salem Silver Labels, Camel's "Exotic Blends" line offers a higher-end variation on their standard-issue smokes, with deeper, richer flavors and a fancy tin box that you can use later for whatever it is you might use a small tin box for.

I was disappointed with the Dark Mint flavor, which are decidely tastier than regular Camels, but are still decidedly Camels. Strong, aggressive, tediously masculine, and rather overly harsh, they're the Charles Bronson of the cigarette world, never giving up until you've paid the price. For what? I'm not sure, exactly.
