“Turkish tobacco is the world's smoothest, most aromatic leaf. Blending it with more robust domestic tobaccos is the secret to Camel's distinctive flavor and world-class smoothness.”

In 2005, Camel made new changes to the Turkish flavors by inserting the Camel title on the rolling paper and also changing the filter color and design. Also, this year the blend called "Turkish Silver", a light version of either the Turkish Gold or Royal varieties became available. Even when smoked, the text on the paper is often still visible on the ashes.
