Wish I could go back in time and try some old brands

If I could go back in time, I would love to try several brands from the 60's. I wish I could try a pack of Red 100s in the gold pack, a pack of Salem Longs, and I might as well try the all-white Newports from that decade. It would be interesting to see how the original BHs and the original VS tasted back then.

I bet a BH menthol was very strong for a menthol back then. Even stronger than Newports of today.

Since light cigs and 120's didn't exist in that decade, I gotta fastforward to 1985 if I wanna try VS 120s and Capris. lol

I heard of 2 brands called Twist and Alpine. Both menthols and the Twist had a touch of lemon.

Light cigs came out just after cig ads on TV and radio got banned. But I bet light cigs were actually as strong as a FF in the 70s. I remember seeing a ML 1973 ad, and those MLs had 14 tar and 1.0 nic. 1.0 mg of nic aint "light" to me. lol

The 70s is (of course) the same decade when the first 120's came out. Like Eve and More. I believe Misty came out when I was a boy back in 1990.

When I get around to it, I need to add some cig commercial links on here. Classical cig commercials of course.
