Black & Mild is a machine-made, pipe tobacco cigar. They are produced by John Middleton Co., a tobacco company located in Limerick, Pennsylvania. As of November 2007, Altria, the parent company of Philip Morris purchased John Middleton, Inc.[1]

Black & Milds have a wrapper made of homogenized pipe tobacco, and are sold with a plastic or wood tip, untipped, in a shorter version called Shorts—which are about half of the size of regular Black & Milds—and also in filtered little cigar versions.

Black & Milds are sold in numerous different varieties, all of which are listed below.

The company has recently come out with the slogan, "Tastes great! Smells great!" due to the sweet smell produced by the smoke.
