    Does anyone know of a store in NYC that sells Prince cigarettes?

    been on vacation for two months and haven't touched a cigarette. i heard it's like $12 a pack now in NYC...

    $13 is pretty much the average in NYC. One time I was in downtown Brooklyn and this bodega charged me $8 because I was a college student. Still don't understand it but why argue?

    I'm still sticking to rolling my own. Danish Export by Peter Stokkebye is the best I've tried. Criss Cross is disgusting and very sweet. I have 6 oz of it and can't even look at it. The house blend from Roll Your Own.com is alright, but I just bought a pound of it (20 bucks with shipping) after finishing the 6 oz and it has been tasting pretty bad. I also am using injector tubes with the dual-purpose pipe tobacco which makes it taste not nearly good as rolling your own with a hand roller and Premier filter tips.

    It's just so tough to buy the Stokkebye, or even store bought cigs when I can buy the dual-purpose pipe tobacco for such a cheap price. It's like under a dollar a pack! Stokkebye is over 7 bucks for 1.23oz (50 cigs when rolling your own, less when injecting). Still inexpensive considering I like it better than anything store bought, including MCDs, which are still quite good. But it's more than twice the price of the dual-purpose pipe tobacco.

    < ~$2.15 a pack here, I'm dying because I choose to

    I remember when I went to Korea, I was surprised to find that most places had an ashtray next to every urinal in the bathroom.... I guess if you have to take a really big piss, that is too long to go in between cigarettes by Korean standards?

    It's the same in some places in Japan. Hilarious. I liked having an ashtray in the crapper though. That's awesome, especially with those nice toilet seats.

    If your only getting 50 cigarettes out of 1.23oz your using way too much tobacco. I roll my own too, although I just use shitty golden virginia but I get about 30-35 out of a 12.5g.

    Are they really that much cheaper there, or are you just buying really shitty cigarettes?[​IMG]

    Cigs here in Korea are just cheap and that includes Philip Morris, BAT and the local KT&G.

    I've been smoking dunhills for a while now.

    I'm going to smoke as much as I can this week before it gets warm enough to finally go running.

    It's not there for dus doing a #1; the general public here just knows what's up when it comes to mixing business with pleasure.

    What are some of your favorite luxury brands?

    I've had all the usual, mass-produced stuff and haven't really found one I love. I've been smoking Reds but they're getting old and I'm getting adventurous. I did a Google search for 'best cigarette in the world' which turned up names like Nat Sherman and Classic - I was surprised to see they weren't very expensive online.
    Any recommendations for a luxe cig noob trying to test the waters?

    Dunhill - the reds in the large wide box and the fine cut in a narrow black box. I'm particularly fond of the fine cut but they're hard to find in DC.

    Marlboro Special Blend Gold Pack and No.27. Wouldn't call these luxury but they're very good.
