Default Tobacco price/limit from lanzarote

Not for me, (yuck) stinky OH is a smoker. I suppose if he must buy it it's best we buy some from our holiday if its cheaper.

Its roll up stff that he has, golden virginia or drum. Can anyone give me an idea on price and how much can be brought back? (Doesn't have to be these specific brands just tobacco in general) - Not that I shall let him spend all our pocket money on it!

Thanks

The Canaries are considered to be outside the EU so the following applies:
Tobacco allowances

You can bring in one from the following list:
  • 200 cigarettes
  • 100 cigarillos
  • 50 cigars
  • 250g of tobacco
Or you can combine these allowances. For example, if you bring in 100 cigarettes (half your full allowance) you can also bring in 25 cigars (half your full allowance). This would make up your full tobacco allowance. You can't go over your total tobacco allowance.
You cannot combine alcohol and tobacco allowances.

Yes either 10 pouches of tobacco or 200 cigs.
Golden virginia was about 38 euros for 10 pouches,that was this July.
