The smoking gun

If you read that story about Monsieur Blanc, the French minister who resigned after charging €12,000 worth of cigars to his department's budget, you will wonder how many cigars you get for that amount of money.

Not that many, is the answer. According to this website, you won't get much change from buying 20 boxes of 25 Romeo y Julieta Churchills (tubos of course). Worth every penny. But perhaps a litttle injudicious of M Blanc to charge it to his ministry.
