Tobacco cigarettes often just have a couple flavors that mask the cigarettes. Some of these flavors may include menthol cigarettes that typically come in a green or blue pack. Tobacco cigars are often flavored in a larger variety of flavors ranging from honey to grape. With smoking tobacco cigars, they are sometimes known as smoking products that are to not be inhaled.
