Black & Mild
Black & Mild, the Most Successful Experiment
Black&Mild has literally become a household name. The brand was originally started back in the 19th century by John Middleton, who owned a small tobacco shop in Philadelphia. John's idea was only to provide local smokers with cigars and other tobacco-related products in the very beginning. Still, he soon realized that experimenting with tobacco was more exciting and interesting than just selling cigars. So let's find out how John's career started.
Some people really do love smoking a pipe. However, most of them are like a pipe for the unique tobacco taste it provides. Very few smokers actually enjoy using a pipe: you have to fill, clean, and dry it on a daily basis, which, frankly, nobody has the time for. Besides, you have to carry your pipe all the time, wherever you go.
Dealing with a smoking pipe didn't seem worth it to John Middleton, so he eventually came up with the idea of filling a cigar with pipe tobacco. In fact, Middleton was one of the first people to create a cigar using pipe tobacco, which, at the time, was very unusual, almost unheard of. But if you think about it, a pipe tobacco cigar has more advantages than a regular cigar or a pipe!
A pipe tobacco cigar wasn't supposed to hit the market; it was thought of as 'just another experiment. However, Middleton's assistants quickly realized that they had just hit the mother lode. And they were right: that experiment turned out to be a huge success, and the John Middleton Co. has since become one of the most successful tobacco companies out there.
These days, the Black & Mild cigar is still a popular machine-made pipe tobacco cigar made of homogenized pipe tobaccos. The cigar and its varieties have fans worldwide, and there's no wonder why: their Black & Milds provide an exceptional smoking experience, a satisfying aroma, and a smooth burn.
The number of varieties of Black n Mild cigars is truly unbelievable: they come with plastic or wood tips, short and regular-size, in all sorts of flavors. Have a look at the long list of the available tastes:
Indeed, it is not just cigars that Black & Mild manufacturers. The brand also caters to a different type of smoker, those who prefer cigarillos, a slimmer version of a cigar. Cigarillos were designed for those too busy to enjoy an entire cigar during the day but still want to have a great smoke. The selection of Black & Mild cigarillo flavors might be a little more limited than that of their cigars, but you still have some options to choose from:
There have also been a few flavors that Black & Mild decided to discontinue:
Fast Break cigars were shorter than Black & Mild Original, and they were created for people who like to enjoy a little cigar on the go. It was a nice little cigar available in two flavors, Apple and Mild, but it was essentially replaced with the Black & Mild Shorts.
As you can see, if you're looking to try a Black&Mild cigar, you will surely find a flavor to match your preferences. If you're looking for an authentic, earthy tobacco flavor, definitely go for Black & Mild Original; if you're not sure as to whether the original flavor might be too strong or harsh for you, consider trying Black & Mild Mild. People with a sweet tooth have a wide variety of flavors to choose from: from fruity like Apple to extra sweet like Sweets.
The Black & Mild brand has been around for over 150 years, and the reason why they are still as popular as ever is that the brand does not make any compromises when it comes to the quality of its products. Black & Mild's main focus is to satisfy their customers from all over the world, and it's safe to say that they've done an excellent job.
As for the company itself, it was purchased by the parent company of Philip Morris, Altria Group, in 2007. Altria Group is one of the world's largest marketers of cigars and other tobacco-related products.
