Finns bring more alcohol and cigarettes from Estonia

How can you recognise a Finn at the ferry terminal in Tallinn? He is usually carrying a box of beers/vodka/cigarettes or all of that.

This is what the customs see and according to the statistics, Finnish tourists imported (end of May 2009) 8% more alcohol and 16% more cigarettes in a year.

More concretely, that is 2 million litres of pur alcohol and 250 million cigarettes imported (or reimported in some cases, for example the Finnish beer Lapin Kulta) to Finland by tourists visiting Estonia.
