Menthols seem to be the hardest to settle on and most subjective between users. Personally, for a light menthol with coffee overtones (or visa versa), I like the java mint. However, the premium Smilin is great if you like more menthol. It is certainly a favorite... smooth menthol with just a touch of chocolate/tobacco finish. Now others swear upon Peacemaker Peppermint.. like they would kill for it, so you also might want to give it a try... I haven't yet, but it is on my wishlist.
