|Spanish term or phrase: cigarrillos negros|
|From a Bolivian text, "... el fumaba cigarrillos negros...". I'm not sure if it is a cigar or a type of cigarette. Thanks a lot to anyone who knows!|
dark cigarettes. You could also call them "black cigarettes". Here's what I found on the glossary http://www.dimon.com/world_link/glossary/defs_4.htm
dark cigarettes: One of the main types of blended cigarettes, which are those made with a mixture of tobacco varieties. Dark cigarettes are made almost exclusively of dark air-cured tobacco, and are sometimes referred to as "black cigarettes."
