To Whom It May Concern:

As a long time user of your product "Marlboro" red box I am now a little concerned that the taste of your product has now changed.

I am now detecting a harsh dry chemical taste.

My question is. Has your company done something to alter the cigarettes and their taste. Perhaps there are new government guidlines or safety recommendations that is resulting in the changes you have made.

I have enjoyed this brand over the years, but now I ponder whether to change brands alltogether.

I would hate to change but I can no longer tolerate this dreadful taste and after taste.

I always smoked Marlboros but quit.I decided after many years to buy a pack.

The taste and smell isn't there. I've tried Camel and an generic brand.

It's the same story.I enjoy smoking my Marlboro red soft pack but when

you figure the cost and the fact they taste like crap, they're going to have to go or I'm going to buy imported.


Iv been smoking reds 100s for 12 years now and last maybe six months or more I have noticed a huge difference in the ciggs taste and I hate it!!!also have been smoking way more like they put something in it to make it even more addictive and my lungs are killing me IV talked to a few others that are saying the same things.what's going on???


After reading other reviews I see I am not the only one who has noticed a change in the flavor of Regular Marlboro Blacks.Over the last couple of months I can smell an awful burning paper smell and after taste.

It isn't every pack either but as more time goes by it is happening more often than not.

If the company is trying to save money, they are ruining my smokes.Is Marlboro going to do anything to keep it's customers?

I totally agree.Is it down to the 'new filter' !!!!

Or possibly because of a different tobacco mix. The new 'Marlboro Red' has a very nasty ( never mind dangerous ) problem of burning out mid way thou smoking a cigarette...........and please don't get me ranting about ABOUT the new bloody packages.

Ps I am 31 year Marlboro red smoker.I have always said that if I was going to give myself cancer I was going to do smoking a my favourite brand.But I'm really looking at ....God forbid..vaporize.

I hear you but it's got nothing to do with the new burning system that is a safety strip to make shore thay don't burn the hose down like they use in the U.K. I live in U.K. And they tast great but when I come to grease the golds taste like ***


Marlboro black cigarettes have been tasting bad too.They hotbox without me taking repetitive drags, and are much harder to smoke.

The taste is no longer robust, it's like they have more a burnt taste from the cigarettes burning too quickly. I am going to quit too. I wish I had never started up again.

I hope this attempt to be my last.It's sad that they cost sooo much, and now quality is diminished.
