Gone since 1973, but not forgotten

These oval-shaped cigarettes with the fine-quality tobacco and the great package were available at Wiggy's until they weren't. I first smoked them in London and always found them in Canada too. The brand dates from 1874. Passing Clouds had the only pink cigarette packaging I've ever seen. They were mild but flavorful. Another personal favorite has always been Balkan or Black Russian Sobranie. Evidently State Express 555s are no longer out there in hinged tins, either.
