Types of Black & Mild Cigars


Since the 1856 founding of its store in Philadelphia, the John Middleton Co. has been selling tobacco products. Alongside the company's line of Prince Albert cigars, John Middleton's Black & Mild cigarillos are its most popular offering. These “little cigars” are made from pipe tobacco, which provides the taste and aroma of pipe smoking without the need to prepare a pipe. Middleton offers Black & Mild cigars--which, like all tobacco products, are illegal for people younger than 18--in no less than a dozen types.


  • The John Middleton Co.'s Black & Mild little cigars are, as their name indicates, mild cigars. Also known as cigarillos, Black & Milds are made of 100 percent pipe tobacco wrapped in homogenized tobacco leaf. Like all of the Black & Mild line, the original blend cigars are machine-made in Puerto Rico. These cigars are unfiltered, though Middleton offers the original Black & Mild cigar with filter tips as well. Filter-tipped Black & Mild cigars are known as Black & Mild FTs.

Flavored Types

  • Black & Mild cigarillos come in a variety of fruit blends and flavors. These cigars have subtly fruit-flavored blends and feature fruit-flavored tips. The John Middleton Co. offers Black & Milds in Cherry Blend and Apple varieties. Similarly, the company produces a line of Black & Mild Cream cigars, which feature cream-flavored tips. Black & Mild Wine pipe tobacco cigars feature a wine flavor, capitalizing on the custom of smoking cigars with a glass of wine.

Wood Tip Types

  • The John Middleton Co. offers a line of wine-flavored Black & Mild Wood Tip cigars. Wood-tip varieties of Black & Mild cigars feature a wooden tip rather than the plastic tip used on Black & Mild FTs and Black & Mild flavored cigars. MIddleton also offers Black & Mild Wood Tip Wine cigarillos, which feature wine-dipped wooden tips for added flavor.

Other Types

  • Though the pipe tobacco used in Black & Milds already offers a mild smoking experience, the Middleton produces a label of even gentler Black & Mild Milds. These cigarillos also come in a filter-tipped variety. The company also produces Black & Mild Fast Break cigars, which are smaller than standard Black & Milds, focusing on short smoking sessions. Black & Mild Royale cigars are larger than standard Black & Milds.
