What are the different types of heated tobacco stick flavours?

Specially designed tobacco sticks are used exclusively with IQOS devices. Carefully crafted for the experience of 18+ users who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products, each tobacco stick is made with meticulous care, attention and expertise.

The journey to offering 18+ IQOS users this experience begins with farmers from all around the world who care deeply for their crop. Next, our master blenders sample the tobacco, selecting the best tobacco origins and qualities and paying special attention to aroma and taste profiles (e.g. richness, ripeness, strength). Finally, our tobacco blenders create the blends for tobacco sticks.

A modern twist on tobacco classics, tobacco sticks offer a range of taste experiences from rich to refined, including tobacco with menthol and new aromatic blends to suit every taste palate. IQOS users aged 18+ can try out and compare heated tobacco flavours within IQ Vape stores or Specialist Vape Retailers to find their perfect match. Tobacco sticks are not risk-free and contain nicotine which is addictive.

We know that 18+ IQOS users love to explore new tastes. That’s why with tobacco sticks we are building a universe where there is always another heated tobacco flavour, another taste experience to discover and where many unexplored dimensions of taste are waiting for IQOS legal age users.


What is the difference between heated tobacco devices and e-cigarettes?

Although heat-not-burn devices and e-cigarettes are both smoke-free alternatives to smoking, there are some important differences.

In heated tobacco devices, a tobacco stick containing naturally present nicotine is heated to produce flavour and an aerosol. This is what people usually call a vapour – making them a vaping device.

E-cigarettes don’t contain tobacco but instead heat e-liquids containing nicotine and flavours to produce an aerosol.

Is there a difference between heated tobacco and vaping?

No. Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling an aerosol, often referred to as vapour. This is same for heated tobacco sticks as it is for heated e-liquids. Vaping is used because these devices do not produce tobacco smoke, but rather, an aerosol.
