I knew it as Tareyton, minus the Herbert. And yes, I can't tell you what ad words like "modern size" mean. But it sounds fishy.

Thanks, Bev!

Thanks, Dave! For the most part, it really is surprisingly vivid even in print.

I tried in vain to learn who Herbert Tareyton is. I found this, which is sort of interesting...

"Tareyton is a brand of cigarettes originally manufactured by the American Tobacco Company. ...Tareyton is currently produced by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, and can be found on the Internet and specialty tobacco stores, but is no longer sufficiently popular to be stocked in many stores or receive marketing and advertising from the manufacturer."

So it's like the tobacco equivalent of a secret menu item.
