  • Patent number: 4227540
    Abstract: A cylindrically-shaped menthol cartridge is adapted to be placed within the hollow body portion of an elongated, two-piece cigarette holder. The holder includes a flattened member adapted for reception in the mouth of a user, and a generally cylindrical member adapted to receive a cigarette, cigar or other smokable, tobacco-filled cylinder. The cylindrically-shaped cartridge is packed with menthol crystals and includes vented end walls through which smoke from the burning tobacco may pass before flowing to the smoker. Inhalation of the menthol fumes mitigates the toxicity of the tars and nicotine from the burning tobacco and soothes the mucous membranes in the nose and mouth.
