Kickass French cigarette, which reached the peak of its popularity between the world wars in Europe. Cigarette of choice for old Frenchmen and beatniks the world over. Gauloises Brunes are very strong, using a dark blend of tobacco from Syria and Turkey. Also available in a Virginia (American) blend, known as Gauloises Blondes.
Watching Die Hard made me want some Gauloises Brunes!
