I've been smoking Golden Bat cigarettes this week, because they are cheap. Back in the '80s, I used to smoke Camel straights. When I moved to Japan, they only had Camel filters. So the closest thing I could find were Golden Bats. They were 90 yen a pack, which at the time was like 90 cents. They are now 200 yen a pack. Anyway, it's been over 20 years since I first came here. I usually smoke American Spirit, and you can find them in Japan (I actually started smoking them here), but they are not nearby. So I have been smoking Golden Bats. Surprisingly, they are not harsh. Actually, back home I roll my own because cigarette costs are so prohibitive (it's over $100 a carton now in Chicago!).
