    Considering there is little difference in price to the king size version, does this mean that the tobacco used in super king size cigarettes is of poorer quality? It would certainly taste that way, but they way they are promoted just suggests they are the same cigarettes, but bigger.

    They are. A Mayfair king size cigarette will taste the same as a Mayfair superking.

    I guess it depends on the brand and type of cigarettes. Richmond menthol is bearable, but the superking version is disgusting, no way are they the same.

    I worked at Tesco on the kiosk for a while and two of the creepiest old guys I've ever met used to come in together and buy them. Thus, I have concluded that Superkings are marketed for smelly old perverts.
