New to Rollies

Hi there

started smoking rollies about a week ago after been on silk cut purple for years

Just wondering what would be the weakest rolling tobacco???

Im buying the packets of amber leaf at the moment great value and to be honest much nicer than a normal cigarette

Akaik the lightest rolling tobacco readily available is Drum Bright Blue.

try and get used to the ultra slim ones theyre far better

amber leaf is also probably the strongest tobacco, very harsh. golden virginia and cutters choice is the way to go. steer well clear of drum, tastes awful

Switched to rollies meself , now smoke amber leaf or cutters choice. One of them (can't rem which one) gives a few 'sticks' of filters along with the papers.

**** papers though.


Practice rolling just slightly too tight. When putting in the filter put the plastic cover in first and slide the filter in. That way ya can have an end that's actually narrower than the filter and it's smokable like a proper cigarette.
I'll second Golden Virginia as well. Big pouches are the way to go, got the smaller one before and by the time you're halfway through it's all split into tiny bits, makes it untidy then rolling.

Or just roll it with the filter in?

I myself only started smoking rollies back at the start of the year, only buy proper fags when I'm heading out boozing so I've saved a small fortune already.

Golden Virginia, red skins and rizzla slim = win

No matter how tight I do it with the filter in it's not tight enough for me.

If you are looking for a light and mild tobacco I highly suggest Cutters Choice as a few others have said. I find its reallly the only one that I can enjoy properly. I find all of the others to be really heavy and dry (too much like "normal" ciggies in my opinion) where the Cutters Choice is always very moist (a neccessity in my opinion) and easy to roll with and burns and tastes lovely as it smokes.

Is GV less harsher than amber leaf on the lungs when inhaling?
