Winchester. Its a whole hother ballgame. How did Winchester win out when all other little cigars never got to first base? By managing a nifty double play. First: Winchester's got a smoothness and aroma that tells women you know the score. Second: It's got a lean little shape and a price to match. So pick up a pack tonight, and start swinging.
