Dual Sensation™ filter

Unique combinations

The innovative design of the Dual Sensation™ filter provides the choice of two unique combinations, either a capsule segment with a carbon segment, or a capsule segment with a visually distinctive filter segment.

Filter construction

A tobacco and mouth-end segment of high-quality crimped cellulose acetate. The capsule containing the liquid additive is inserted into the cellulose acetate tow in either the mouth or tobacco-end segments.

The capsule segment is enclosed in an outer non-porous plugwrap and the filter segments are wrapped in an outer plugwrap, which can be standard or porous depending on ventilation requirements.

The filter tip length, circumference, and pressure drop can be varied to suit taste and filtration requirements.
