THE price of cigarettes in Spain is famously low, especially when compared to the whopping £15 (€17.55) that a smoker pays for a pack of 20 in the United Kingdom these days.

But Spanish nicotine addicts will notice that the cost of a carton is creeping up, with a notable rise in prices contained in a recent Official State Gazette (BOE) published by the government

The new prices are proposed by manufacturers and importers of tobacco products, according to a report in Andalucia Informacion, and contain some nasty surprises for smokers. 

For example, Vogue Super Slims Blue now cost €6.25, while Lucky Strike Blue come in at €5.25. Those who roll their own will also feel the pinch, as 50 grammes of Cutter’s Choice tobacco now costs €10.50, while Samson Original Blend has gone up to €10.70 for the same quantity.
