Drum Cigarette Tobacco

I'm a lover of all tobacco including cigarettes. However sometimes I get the feeling that there is a bit of a social stigma against admitting that you enjoy smoking a cigarette. Don't get me wrong I love my pipes and cigars but most of the time I smoke cigarettes. I don't always have time to enjoy a pipe or cigar and when I want a quick smoke I make a cigarette. Personally I love Drum Halfzware Shag and go through a can of the stuff every two weeks. I hand roll my smokes because I've gotten pretty good at it over the last few years of doing it and while I have tried other RYO brands I always come back to Drum.

So are there any other cigarette smokers out there and if so what do you smoke? Do you roll your own or buy packs at the gas station? Yeah we all know they are bad for us but like bacon... Damn they taste good!


  • Outstanding cig tobacco that Drum.
  • Years ago Drum was my choice for hand-rolled. Until a couple years ago I did RYO, an only stopped because I was enjoying cigars and pipes more and my cig kit was collecting dust.
  • I enjoy a drum ryo on occasion. I even twisted up some five brothers PT[kicked my ass]. Time is no problem here; I sport pipes most of the waking hours. Drum isn't as good as it used to be but still better than most RYO OTC.
    I like a good cigar but that is a luxury I can't afford anymore. I was a slave to cancer sticks for 40 years I find smoking Pipe tobacco far more enjoyable.
    I worked at a nursing home as a teen and there were 90 year olds that smoked all their lives go figure? I agree cigarette smokers are looked down upon in todays society.

  • I tried a lot of different tobaccos about 7 or 8 years ago... did the tube and injector thing for a while and found a few brands of tobacco that I liked but nothing like Drum... I've tried other stuff like Bali Shag and even more expensive tobac like Peter Stokkebye but always come back to Drum.

    @basement_shaman I thought I was the only one who rolled 5 brothers... Hahaha... yeah it will put hair on your marbles that's for sure... A few years ago a friend of mine went to Ireland and brought back some Euro Drum... Completely different flavor than the U.S. version. But for a cigarette this is my go to smoke.
  • You can get PS PT Turkish in bulk damn cheap $27 lb. makes a decent camel.

    I have not rolled one in about 20 yrs. Drum was my choice as well back then. I do have a friend that will also roll G&H Kendal KY, he says he likes it a lot, for me KY will remain a pipe tobacco only.

    By the way, have you considered a small group 1 pipe? Takes about 12-15 min. to clear a bowl. Just a thought if time is short. Anything shorter than that I reach for snuff now.
  • Most of the time when I smoke a cigarette it's at work after lunch or when I only have a few minutes. I have a few small bowl pipes, most of them are nose warmers... I love the short little pipes. I use snuff almost all day long so this is in addition to snuff... I smoke pipes in the car or at home and fill gaps with cigarettes and cigars... I might have a problem now that I think about it.
  • the peter stokkbye Amsterdam shag is my favorite about $1 more than drum but comes with papers .... not many choices in the us for rollie tobacco England has a few good
    ones old holborn golden Virginia etc ....
  • I enjoy PS and have had the London and Amsterdam shag a number of times. The problem with those is getting it in my area... I have to go to a specific tobacco shop and they keep crazy hours so usually my lazy arse just ends up at the Cheap Tobacco where they have a stack of Drum... Hahaha...
  • American Spirit Perique was a decent RYO. I had a few pouches when it first came available. The fire safe rolling papers had a lot to do with me quitting. lord know what they put in them. I did have some club papers from the 70tys but since used them up. I have yet to try 100% hemp papers. They may not be governed the same as cigarette papers.Those fire safe papers annoyed me having to relight more than once.

  • The can's of drum I get have JOB papers with them. I like them because they are ricepaper and you can't taste the paper. I've smoked ZigZag and a number of others but you can always taste the paper. It's like smoking a cigarette rolled with notebook paper. Raw makes excellent rolling papers from hemp and they don't have the fire safe garbage in them as far as I know. When I smoke Drum in a Raw paper it also gives the cigarette a mild cigar flavor which is nice if you like the taste of cigars.
  • Once in a blue moon I'll roll a cig with a blend of GH Kendal Gold and Kendal Kentucky

    Haven't had a cigarette in a long while, but I used to enjoy Gauloises rolling tobacco with liquorice papers.
    "Reality," sa molesworth 2, "is so unspeakably sordid it make me shudder."
  • Wow can you still buy those papers? It sounds great.
  • Wow can you still buy those papers? It sounds great.
    yep rizlapapers the gauloises isn't for sale in the us anymore I don't think so if you find any it will be dried out
  • I only smoked Bali Shag, or Peter Stokebye Denmark, or Drum when those 2 couldnt be found. I do miss it sometimes I never felt ill or had breathing problems, but just switched over to nasal snuff after using too many forms of tobacco decided to choose one.
  • I don't mind the manitou organic and raw hemp papers. Nice robust smoke.
  • I used to smoke Perle Shag mixed with hash and rolled in chocolate papers at work back in the 60's. Good times.
  • @Mouse "The Good Old Days !" ;) :D
  • I smoked Drum for years--you clear your throat a lot when you smoke that stuff. I also enjoy regular non-filters like English Ovals, Nat Sherman's Havana Ovals, Pall Malls, Camels, Luckies, Export, etc. Never tried Commanders--they're hard to find when I'm in the States. I quit this winter, though, not being immortal.

  • I wonder what the 'old hippy' count is in this list.
  • @Mouse Count me in...there was a certain "essential oil" back in the 70's that could be applied to just about any tube of burning leaf that did a fine job of making the days more interesting and the nights more, ahem, fruitful. Living near the female dorms at the local college created a target rich environment for those of us that were good boy scouts and were always prepared.
  • Wow... I wanna hang out with you guys! I have a pretty interesting collection of "novelty glass" smoking pipes I'm sure you would all be interested in. :)>-
  • I collect Rumph ceramic myself.

  • @chefdaniel that certain "essential oil" is making a very popular come back in CO right now. Except now you can buy it legally at a corner store.
  • @coreymillia I'm taking a vacation to Boulder next week! I have family out there and I'm pretty sure I will be enjoying some of that essential oil and other fine herbs while I'm there.
  • Just my two cents here, Drum has to be the best ryo that I have tried. Granted, I no longer smoke cigs, however, Drum is damn good rollyourown tobacco.
  • @peter77 I couldn't agree more...
  • stop it, STOP IT YOU FIENDS! ive run out of beloved snus so im making do with odd old snuffs, last of a can of skoal, and a crap ecig till i can make a worthy order. im leaning back to smoking, and i prefer drum.
