Marlboro Blend no. 54 1

This is the only cigarette that I've ever actually despised. I am a two and half pack per day smoker and I gotta say, these things were specifically designed to cause you physical pain. By far the worst cigarettes I have ever had, they literally made me sick to my stomach. I immediately bought a pack of Kools, however, being that I was on a business trip in New York City and paid $12.50 for this particular pack I suffered through each and every burn-running, nauseating, and tasteless cigarette which left me with an awful headache each time and made me contemplate suicide on a frequent basis. If you like a pack full of disappointment and physical irritation to your internal organs, pick up a pack of these babies. You'll be glad you did. I wouldn't recommend these to my worst enemy for the sole reason that they have to be the worst thing I've EVER seen come out of Phillip Morris' company in my life.

i usually smoke newports and my cousin sugested marlboro smooths and I got hooked on those then when we went to the store the other day they where out of smooths and all they had where the 54s and I must say they are nice. After a couple they start to taste like hash. They make ya feel a little high, too. good brand though.

I smoked Newport 100's for several years and was stopping off at a gas station to get some smokes but I knew I wanted Marlboro menthol because they were cheaper than newport and I could get at least 4 packs for 20 bucks. The cashier pointed out to me the new Marlboro 54's 100's so I said okay and I bought one pack of those and 3 packs of the regular marlboro menthol 100's. Man do I wish I would have bought all of them in the Marlboro 54's. I smoked the pack of 54's first and was hooked, I did not enjoy smoking the 3 packs of regular Marlboro menthol's I bought along with my first pack of marlboro 54 100's after knowing how good the 54's are. Marlboro 54 100's are the ONLY cigarettes I smoke now. I smoke an average of 15 cigarettes a day and I start each month off with 16 packs. No more Newports for me ever again!

it was good for about half the pack then it started tasting more like grass. the first half tasted like the 27 just menthol. packs a great buzz.

They're trying to go for the Newport taste is what I was told at the tobacco store I picked them up at. I smoke two packs of Newports a day and I have to say they're nearly identical. I can tell the difference only because I've been smoking Newports for fifteen years now. However, I'm considering switching to these. Price being the determining factor. It works out to about a mortgage payment a year for me. As for the "54" I believe it's in efforts to obtain more Black smokers, they went with the whole Wesley Snipes Passenger 54 thing. Yup, I said it. "Always bet on black!"

This is one of my usual brands now. Picked up a pack a month ago 'cause I'd never seen them before and I was in the mood for a menthol, and they were $1 off a pack. And I must say, these are fantastic.

There's a good hint of menthol, not overpowering but certainly not transparent in the draw. A very rich taste.. but at the same time, it almost has this "stale" overtone to it.. but not in a bad way. Does that make sense? Just buy a pack, I can't explain it without using jibberish. You'll love them.

First off, I am a HUUUUUUGE Fan of Marlboro Blend No. 27's (The MOST flavor with Just the right Strength!) ... ... Sooooooo, Is it just a coincidence that 27 x's 2 = 54? I am thinkin not; I think this is actually a Marb. #27 with Menthol.

I will echo the other review earlier that said it's almost "creamy" in its menthol taste, but in a really good "fresh" way. Camel did well with the Crush menthol taste being different than "normal" menthol, because the little bead holds menthol in "tincture" form, and delivers more of a "wintergreen" FRESH menthol (because the tobacco is not soaked/treated with menthol). However, I can't smoke Camels ... because I think they are All to dang "DRY". :(

I am not a huge "Menthol Fanatic" ... but I truly think this is the Best one out there. Someone mentioned a cross between Marlboro Medium and Marlboro menthols. I would agree, to the point that I like Blend No. 27's better than Mediums ... and this one "Hit the Mark" being a Blend No. 27 with a nice, interesting, and FRESH menthol draw.

If you are a Menthol Fan ... a Marb.#54 might be Twice as Good as a Marb.#27 ... ;-)

Try'Em! :-)

At first they tasted kind of weird like smoking grass, but I got used to them and they are pretty good. A slight hint of menthol, but not overpowering or sickeningly sweet like smooths.

they taste good. i personally like smooths better but these were good because i got a really good deal on them. and a word to the people who say that these cigarettes break apart close to the filter, i did not have that problem at all. i think if you pack 100's too much this would probably happen. so don't pack them and you wont have this problem :-)

Blah... they just taste bad. No other way to describe it. Bought a pack to try, smoked a half-dozen, gave the rest of the pack away to my buddy. He normally smokes Marlboro Smooths, and he wasn't wild about the taste of these either. These are nowhere near as good as Newports. Still, I'm going to stop fooling around with menthol cigarettes and just stick to my beloved Luckies.

I work in retail and I happened to notice them on the last pack of the special $3 off promotional deal. I bought a pack of 100's and the next day when my other pack ran out, I tried one. It's been a couple years since I had a menthol (I've been smoking for roughly 4 years and have been mostly on full-flavor Marbs and Jacks when available) and I wasn't too wild about them then, but these were actually pretty good. A good strong flavor that left a relatively smooth aftertaste.
A comment above mentioned that they break apart close to the filter...I did not have a problem with this other than the normal happenings of every 100 length cigarette towards the end of the box: pressure against the length. My last one was broken, but that was it.
My only problem was that after smoking them, the only thing I could smell was akin to Vicks Vapor-rub. It wasn't bad, mind you....but it was pretty strong and wasn't what I was expecting. I'm waiting to pull out the next promo-pack of them so I can buy a couple more boxes.

I normally smoke Camel Lights.

Marlboro Blend 54 was smooth, not too strong with the menthol, and very strong.

They were excellent IMHO.

I bought 8 packs of New Marlboro Blend N0. 54. One pack is no different than the other. The cigaretts break in half near the filter. They are a complete waste of money. Back to Basics for me.
I have been smoking for over 50 years, and never encountered this problem.

Best product ever produced by marlboro. I am not usally a fan of menthol. However it has a good methol to tobacco taste ratio ( balance). Not to mention a rich flavor absent from most menthols and even most of marlboros other products. Hell, they even bet the 27's ( which I gave a 3/5).

they were great at first. cause i smoke newports and they were close. but I started to get really bad migrains from them and they made me naushas. i kno like 7 other people who got the same simtoms from when they started to smoke them. my guess they have to much fiberglass in them.

I picked these up because they reminded me of the Japanese 'Black Menthol's'. They have a nice menthol flavor, that is refreshing. I enjoyed the smoke and have nothing to complain about. These are worth a try at the least.

I love menthol ciggs, anything menthol i can get my hands on but menthol brand of choice definitley has to be Marlboro and Newport. When my friend showed me that Merlboro had a new blend of Menthol ciggs out called 54's i bought a pack and at 2.95 you really can't beat that. Honestly the taste of it i think is a perfect cross between the Marlboro Menthol Mild and a Marlboro Medium. The taste is not a strong menthol taste like a Newport but it isn't to bland and not too minty like the Marlboro Smooth's. Definitely recomend this cigarette to menthol and non menthol smokers alike, especiually for being so cheap now, lets buy these ciggs untill their no longer so cheap!

You are better off smokeing icey hot. The Menthol in this cigarett will kill you!!! However Marlboro Menthol Lights are the best.

i smoke about a pack a day and have been doing so for almost 7 years. i love variety when it comes to tobacco, so naturally when i saw blend no. 54 i picked up a pack. when i started smoking them though, i noticed my lungs hurts excruciatingly both during and between drags. i dont know what they put in it but they need to take it out. i'm not saying that my opinion is that of a "wimp", but a concerned individual. i am strong believer in smokers rights and oppose all anti smoking legislation, but when it hurts, somethings wrong. thank you for your time.

its another menthol cigarette. that's all. i smoke a pack a day of any of the varieties of camel or marlboro menthol's . whatever's on sale usually. and i can probably smoke these over and over if the price stays the same. not too minty, not too bland. i give it 4 of 5 and recommend it to regular or irregular menthol smoker.

I didnt even know these were coming out and was curious when i saw them at the gas station so i decided to buy a pack. I normally smoke filters but like to get a pack of menthol every now and then for the refreshing switch in flavor. I really like marlboro menthol but strongly dislike the smooths because of the "peppermint" taste i get when i smoke them gets old pretty fast (normally like half the way through the pack) when i first smoked the blend no 54 it sort of reminded me of the "wintergreen" minty taste like in camel wide menthol but also had a good minty menthol taste like in newports. it balanced out pretty good in my opinion. ive only smoked a few from the pack i just bough but i can really see this as the menthol cigerette i would normally buy when i do decide to smoke menthol. only down side so far is how fast the cigerette burns which is pretty normal for a marlboro anyways so it is nothing i am not used to. Oh ya and also there is a slight harsh aftertaste that im not to fond of myself but ive also tasted in some of the stronger menthol cigerettes ive smoked in the past..

Overall its a good menthol cigerette. I definatly recomend that you try it if you like the taste of a good, bold and refreshing menthol.

I am about a half pack a day variety smoker, meaning I switch off from menthol to regular cigarettes and go from different brands all the time... I work at a gas station which sells them, so I know which are fresh and which are stale, and which are FSC... I hate Fire Safe Cigarettes and think that they are dumb, but when we first got in the new Marlboro Menthol Blend no. 54, I bought the first pack.

As I lit the first cigarette with high expectations, I was met with a very different kind of menthol than what i've had before. It has thick, mostly rich rich smoke with a flavor that mostly surpasses the nasty FSC chemical. I didn't much like the first drag, and put the cigarette out halfway because I had a customer.

The taste certainly grows on you, but kind of has a tarry aftertaste which can only be expected from the FSC chemical I mentioned... I will miss the Marlboro smooth's 100's, which nobody buys but me and my co-worker, the last of the non FSC that we carry at my work.

Even though my co-worker said to not buy a pack because it tasted like a box of burning buttholes wrapped in paper, I strongly disagree and give this a 4/5 because they are very good, even though I doubt these will be my regular cigarettes. Also not 5/5 because I've had better, but these are pretty good.

Great Cigarette the first 5 or 6 times you smoke it...after a while (for me) the taste got extremely old, overbearing menthol taste at times, by far better quality than the regular Marlboro Menthols though...I think Ill stick to blend 54 100s...best Menthol cigarette out there if you like Menthols.

not bad for the price. i paid about 2 dollars less for these than reds. dont usually do menthols but they arent bad. just enough menthol to soothe your throat but it doesnt overwhelm the tobacco flavor. give em a shot
