I agree with everything. The only reason I see it is the brown wrapper and the bigger size.Let me preface this by saying that i am in no way a fan of black n mild's, they are cheap shitty products that are smoked by hood rats who like to feel fancy. A black n mild in my mind is not actually a cigar, nor can it even be a cigarillo. The closest thing i can compare it to, taking into account what it is made up of and how it is made.
Ok so i have been arguing with someone for over a week weather or not a black n mild is in fact a cigar. He says that a black n mild is a cigar because it is branded as a cigar. Unlike him i dont belive evrything on a lable is true fact. I'm sure that we can all agree that there is nothing "premium" about a white owl even though they are called "premium cigars" on the lable.
Basically i see it as this. A cigar has to have 3 things A wrapper a binder and a filler. A cigar is also rolled in a distinct way; it's rolled up tobacco leaves. Now a black n mild does not fit this description. Firstly it is not made up of a binder wrapper and filler. The outer wrapper of a black n mild is not a solid leaf like cigars. Even cheap drug store cigars have a leaf as a wrapper. Unless there are leaves that look like solid cylinders that is not even close to a leaf. It might be made of tobacco but it is not the same as a cigar wrapper. So 1/3 components are not cigar components so far. Next is the binder and filler. I lump them together because a black n mild has none. A black n mild has ground up pipe tobacco ground up and stuffed into the outer part of it. Not only is it not the same type of tobacco but it is also not even in the same form. A cigar is rolled up. Black n mild tobacco looks like more similar to the tobacco found in a cigarette. So not only does it share no components of a cigar, it is constructed completly differently.
So my question is this. How can a black n mild even be called a cigar if it has nothing in common with a cigar other than the fact that they are both tobacco products?
I would like your opinion on this.
