Kent is an American cigarette brand presently owned and manufactured by using R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in the US and British American Tobacco in other countries. The brand is named after Herbert Kent, former CEO of the Lorillard Tobacco Company.
In 1952, the Lorillard Tobacco Company launched the first KENT cigarettes. With a size of 70 mm and a mild class (medium), they had been for the first time in records geared up with an asbestos filter, which used to be later changed with the aid of a carbon filter (asbestos has been confirmed to reason cancer). Cigarettes have been produced in tender pack ordinary of that time and had been very expensive.
