Expensive Chinese Cigarettes

So a friend and I passed by Shenzen and went into a convenience store. My friend asked for "the most expensive cigarettes you have". We looked through the local brands and it was shocking the top echelon of Chinese cigarettes go for over a 100 times the cost of the ones featured in the cigarette horror stories.

We bought 2 packs recommended by the owner: JinSheng, and Honghe Dao. For 100RMB and 160RMB respectively. Talking to some people in the know it seems Chinese luxury cigarettes are different from their Western counterparts. The quality of tabacco isn't the main concern to them, but rather it is to add different Chinese herbs into the blend.

Any reviews of these ciggys?

Also I heard Japan has a similar approach to luxury cigarettes.
