Removal of "Cigarette brands" category[edit]

I have removed Category:Cigarette brands from this article because Category:R.J. Reynolds brands is a sub-category of the former. It defeats the purpose of having this subcategory if we're going to list the articles in both. SchuminWeb (Talk) 01:51, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

viceroy rule material[edit]

Removed additional material on Viceroy rule:

There had been a grandfather clause in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, but both sponsors were forced out at the end of 2008 because of corporate takeovers. The NHRA ban was originally with sports beverages from 2002 until 2008 with the Powerade brand, but will be enforced on energy drinks in 2009 with the Full Throttle energy drink brand with a grandfather clause permitting any drink that sponsored a car as of April 24, 2008 (Rockstar, which has a distribution deal with Coca-Cola distributors, and Monster are grandfathered).

Viceroy Manufacturer[edit]

{{request edit}}

I want to disclose up front that I am an employee of Reynolds American giving me a WP:COI. However, any edits I suggest will adhere to Wikipedia policies.

This article currently indicates Viceroy cigarettes are manufactured by Reynolds American. This is inaccurate. Viceroy cigarettes are manufactured by British American Tobacco as indicated by the British American Tobacco Website. My suggestion would be to change the first sentence of the article to read “Viceroy cigarettes are made by British American Tobacco.” I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions. Thanks.

Sure; done. Shaz0t (talk) 23:28, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your help, Shaz0t. If you are open to it, I may reach out to you in the future if/when any additional changes are warranted. --Velinflo (talk) 20:25, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but the BAT in-house source is inferior to third party sources which conclude that BAT and RJR Tobacco jointly own Viceroy through Reynolds American. In other words, BAT alone is not properly the manufacturer. Binksternet (talk) 01:46, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
