Benson and Hedges Gold comes in an impeccable gold package which is pleasing to the eye. The brand itself is also widely available so there is less of a need to stock up or order online. The cigarettes themselves are slow burning and have a very strong, tarry flavour to them which is quite unpleasant; the last third of the cigarette is especially bad, which is criminal considering the price you are paying (in Central London, £9 for a pack of 20). The smell, which lingers both on your person and in your clothes, is also another factor to take into account as it is far worse and far more noticeable than other cigarettes. Considering the above, this brand overcharges for what is quite a low quality product and that there are plenty of other good quality cigarettes which are in the same price bracket, there is no reason to buy this product.
When i first started smoking i smoked Marlboro Gold then changed to Marlboro Red as they are stronger and more satisfying. For about four months i was swapping and changing between Pall-Mall, Sterling & Marlboro. I have seen the B&H gold before however avoided them as i didn't know anyone who smoked them, but today i did try them and they were one of the best cigarettes i have ever had.
They come in gold packaging which is very aesthetically pleasing and more classy compared to other cigarette packaging. They have a good taste and smoke well, no chemical taste either which is a plus. These are standard king size 80.mm cigarettes and they burn rather slow.
One unusual thing i noticed about these cigarettes is they they release lots of smoke when held in the hand or when placed in an ashtray, the smoke could be overpowering if you are to smoke indoors (i only smoke outside).
The price i paid in 2013 was just over £7.00 compared to Marlboro priced at £8.60+, they are of the same quality if not higher which i am very pleased about because i can now pay less for a premium smoke.
Overall i like the packaging and the taste of the cigarette however i am sure i will stay with Marlboro however also have a B&H on the weekends just to make a change.

you cant really go wrong buying these cigarettes
they are not too chokingly strong
and you dont have to suck your cheeks in
looking like a person with no teeth,just to get a reasonable satisfying drag out of it,the box and name has just changed to b&h gold,but on closer inspection of the cigarette butt,i noticed a ring of tiny little perforations going around it ,just like silk cut cigarettes has! Why?
If you like to smoke bensons,but are annoyed at the uk prices.dont worry ive found a new site that delivers your bensons direct to you within 3-4 days,they cost £34.50 for 200.you can pay with your credit or debit card,also they have a escrow payment method which means they dont get paid until you sign for your goods.it was about time someone started a good site,im glad its www.cheaper-uk-cigarettes.co.uk.have a look,im better off for finding it.
B&H Gold as they are now called were definitely seen as the coolest fags around when I started smoking. Most of my mates smoked these - they were seen as quite masculine, and also a proper grown-up cigarette. They were also the first cigarette I smoked and I stuck with them for five years - I was very proud of the fact I smoked 10 B&H a day, but I switched to a cheaper brand when I was 16 and started smoking more heavily (yes, I did start smoking at age 11 - terrible I know, but not a decision I have ever regretted!). For a long time after that I couldn't smoke B&H - they have quite a distinctive taste and just lighting one up reminded me of being a kid again, hiding at the back of the field with the other hardcore addicts frantically chuffing our way through the lunch hour to try to make up for our school-enforced nicotine deficit before we saw a teacher coming. A few years ago they changed the brand slightly, I think to comply with EU regulations, and I gave them a try again and I feel I can now give an unbiased judgement - and it's not good. If you like strong cigarettes, B&H are an obvious choice (and they are better than any brand of lights), but for me they don't give you the same smooth nicotine hit you can get from other brands such as Marlboro Red, or even cheaper brands such as Lambert&Butler. I find you have to really drag hard on them to get the full effect, which is just hard work and irritating to be honest. I've also noticed that if I buy a whole packet of these by the time I've finished it (I'm a chain-smoker) I'm left with a headache and sometimes even feeling slightly nauseous, which isn't something which ever happens to me with other brands. The only real advantage to these cigarettes that I can see is that they are not as harsh on the throat as soma, along with the cool design of the packet, and the image of the brand. B&H seem to appeal mainly to younger smokers, and my advice if you smoke these is to see what else is out there - you may well find something better.
well I'm 14 so i have not been smoking long...for about a year and a half, I started off on mayfair menthol, then moved on too mayfair smooth, then marlboro, finally I found this baby...
B&H are great it gives you a great high and mellows you out, but I suggest not smoking this sitting on an uncomfortable chair, I find that the rush is sometimes too overpowering if you sit on a uncomfortable chair.
If you want to get the full flavour and smoke experience you need to smoetimes drag hard.
Finally I see a lot of chavs smoking this brand as well as mayfair superkings( the poor mans smoke ) and sometimes I wonder if they smoke because like like it or just too look cool.
I think the next pack of cigerettes i buy will be B&H and maybe a packof camels or embassy...9/10
