Comments Off on Camel Exotic Blends

Camel Exotic Blends

| Tobacco News | December 4, 2014

Camel Exotic Blends were first introduced in 1999-2000 through R.J. Reynolds’ direct mail magazine, CML: The Camel Quarterly. Originally, they were only available through special order from the magazine. But in late 2001, the Exotic Blends’ availability was expanded to fine tobacconists throughout the United States, and several new flavours were added to the line. Further limited-availability introductions to the line have been made periodically since then.

Here we have a list of top Camel Exotic Blends:

camel-samsun-logo

camel-samsun-blendCamel Samsun was one of the original flavours introduced in CML magazine. It features a delicate, fragrant leaf for a mellow, exotic smoke. Not actually flavoured, but a different blend of tobacco. Milder than Basma. Still available in CML magazine, but not in cartons.

 

 

 

camel-basma-logo

camel-basma-blend Camel Basma was one of the original flavours introduced in CML magazine. The cigarette incorporates the fragrant Basma leaf, the most expensive of Turkish tobaccos, for a spicy, smooth smoke with a woodsy undertone. Fuller-bodied than Samsun. Still available in CML magazine, but not in cartons.

 

 

 

camel-cinnzabar-logo

camel-cinzabar-blendCamel Cinnzabar was one of the original flavours introduced in CML magazine. Camel’s standard Turkish and Domestic blend, with a swirl of cinnamon. Now next-to-impossible to find.

 

 

 

camel-twist-blend

camel-twistCamel Twist was one of the original flavours introduced in CML magazine. Camel’s regular Turkish and Domestic blend infused with a splash of citrus flavour. It became one of the five flavours to reach wide distribution, and is now available at fine tobacconists across the United States. Newer tins do not have the “Spice” subheading below the Camel logo.

 

 

 

camel-crema-logo

 

camel-crema-blend-domestic camel-crema-blend-regular Camel Crema was one of the original flavours introduced in CML magazine. Camel’s regular Turkish and Domestic blend with a creamy hint of vanilla. It became one of the five flavours to reach wide distribution, and is now available at fine tobacconists across the United States. Newer tins do not have the “Spice” subheading below the Camel logo.

 

 

camel-izmir-stinger-logo

camel-izmir-stinger-blend Camel Izmir Stinger was one of the original flavours introduced in CML magazine. Camel’s regular Turkish and Domestic blend with a sweet, tart profile that goes nicely with any highball or shot. It became one of the five flavours to reach wide distribution, and is now available at fine tobacconists across the United States.

 

 

 

camel-rare-logo

camel-rare-domestic-blendcamel-rare-regular-blend  Camel Rare was originally introduced in late 2000 in CML magazine. It is blended from the top 1% of Turkish and Domestic leaves from RJR’s stock in any given year, and hence is only released at the end of the year. Rare 2001′s release coincided with the wide release of the five Exotic Blends on the market today, and was accompanied by a menthol version. There was also a Rare release in 2002, but not in 2003. The next release is slated for November 2004.

 

 

camel-rare-menthol-logo

camel-rare-menthol-blend Camel Rare Menthol is blended from the top 1% of Turkish and Domestic leaves available to RJR in any given year, with added menthol flavour. Rare Menthol’s release in late 2001 coincided with that of Rare 2001, Dark Mint, Mandarin Mint, and the wide release of the other Exotic Blends. There was also a Rare Menthol release in 2002, but not in 2003. The next release is slated for November 2004.

 

 

camel-dark-mint-logo

camel-dark-mint-blend Camel Dark Mint was, along with Mandarin Mint, one of the two flavours added to the Exotic Blends line when they were widely released in late 2001. Camel’s regular Turkish and Domestic blend with minty, chocolatey notes. Available at fine tobacconists across the United States.

 

 

 

camel-mandarin-mint-logo

camel-mandarin-mint-blend Camel Mandarin Mint was, along with Dark Mint, one of the two flavours added to the Exotic Blends line when they were widely released in late 2001. Camel’s regular Turkish and Domestic blend with minty, orangey notes. Available at fine tobacconists across the United States.

 

 

 

camel-mandalay-lime-logocamel-mandalay-lime-blend camel-mandalay-lime-box Camel Mandalay Lime was released in limited distribution in November 2002, along with Aegean Spice. As one would expect, the cigarettes pack a nice potent kick of lime. They were part of a three-tin sampler box which also included Dark Mint. No longer in wide distribution.

 

 

camel-aegean-spice-logo

camel-aegean-spice-blend amel Aegean Spice was released in limited distribution in November 2002, along with Mandalay Lime. These unique cigarettes feature exotic fruits and spices actually blended in with the tobacco. They were part of a three-tin sampler box which also included Dark Mint. No longer in wide distribution.

 

 

 

camel-bayou-blast-logo

camel-bayou-blast-blend Camel Bayou Blast has been released the past two years to coincide with the Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans. It features Camel’s regular Turkish and Domestic blend with a blast of berry flavour. The cigarettes were available for a short time leading up to Mardi Gras (March 4, 2003 and February 24, 2004).

 

 

 

camel-beach-breezer-logo

camel-beach-breezer-blend Camel Beach Breezer was, along with Margarita Mixer, released in Summer 2003 for a limited time, though evidently they were still available in stores by December 2003. I’ve heard them described as “like smoking a watermelon Jolly Rancher.”

 

 

 

camel-margarita-mixer-logo

camel-margarita-mixer-blend Camel Margarita Mixer was, along with Beach Breezer, released in Summer 2003 for a limited time, though evidently they were still available in stores by December 2003. They are somewhat similar to Mandalay Lime, but the liminess here is not as strong as it was in that earlier-released blend.

 

 

 

camel-midnight-madness-logo

camel-midnight-madness-blend Camel Midnight Madness was released in December 2003 as a New Year’s promotion. The cigarette weds Camel’s Turkish and domestic blend with the flavour of New Year’s spirits – that is to say, Champagne. The blend was only available for a limited time leading up to December 31, 2003 and shortly thereafter.

 

 

 

camel-back-alley-blend-logo

camel-back-alley-blend The first new Exotic Blend of 2004 was released towards the end of May. As you can see from the package, RJR has evidently moved away from the Louisiana theme of Bayou Blast and is now into Kentucky – the new blend sports “a hint of Bourbon.” No word yet as to how long Camel Back Alley Blend will be available, though I would assume only through summer 2004.

 

 

 

camel-kauai-kolada-logo

camel-kauai-kolada-blend Camel Kauai Kolada is, along with Twista Lime, one of Camel’s Summer Blends 2004, here for a limited time. The package boasts of “Hawaiian Hints of Pineapple & Coconut” – sounds like just the ticket to go beautifully with your Pina Colada.

 

 

 

cmel-twista-lime-logo

camel-twista-lime-blend Camel Warm Winter Toffee is, along with Winter Mocha Mint, one of Camel’s Winter Blends 2004, announced in November 2004 and released in December for a limited time. Reynolds calls it “A Swirl of Sweet Indulgence.” Mmm… toffee and tobacco? Sounds intriguing, to say the least.

 

 

 

camel-winter-mocha-mint-logo

camel-winter-mocha-mint-blend Camel Winter Mocha Mint is, along with Warm Winter Toffee, one of Camel’s Winter Blends 2004, announced in November 2004 and released in December for a limited time. It’s promoted as “A Chilly Blast of Peppermint & Mocha.” For menthol fans, sounds like an intriguing addition to Dark Mint on the Exotic Blends line.

 

 

 

As you know Camel smokes are also available in the following sorts:

Cigarettes Like A Medicine: How Smoking Was Promoted Half A Century Ago

| Tobacco News | November 30, 2014

Promoting Smoking

The fight against smoking in the last decade has reached incredible scale: threatening inscriptions on packs, frightening illustration stricter every year bans. From enjoyable smoking habit gradually turned into harmful and cigarette advertising is now seen by many as something immoral. And it is hard to imagine that in the middle of the last century, this product was moving with such panache.

Brands such as Lucky Strike, Camel, Viceroy used in advertising not just images of ordinary consumers, and, importantly, doctors and athletes. Cigarettes were presented not only as a way to relax, get a charge of vivacity, but also as a tool capable of positively affect the condition of the body.

For example, the Camel brand has repeatedly said that cigarette smoking during and after meals may contribute to a better absorption of food. Here are some examples of advertising known brands of cigarettes half a century ago.

He smoked, even in the day of his death”, said the lawyer of the family of the deceased.

Hearings in the case lasted four weeks. According to the original decision of the jury RJ Reynolds Tobacco had to pay to the widow, and her son, 7.3 and 9.6 million, respectively. However, after further discussions, the amount of compensation has increased significantly, to 23.6 billion dollars. This amount has become one of the largest in the history of the state, which was paid as compensation to an individual.
