Winston cigarettes are manufactured by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. The brand was introduced in 1954, and became the best-selling brand of cigarettes in the United States. It held the #1 spot from 1966 to 1972, thanks to the successful marketing slogan "Winston tastes good like a cigarette should." In the last national survey in 2001, Winston ranks sixth in market value.
In the early part of the 21st century, Winston is still one of the top 10 brands in the U.S. As of February 1, 2006, Winston cigarettes are available as Winston Regular, Winston Lights, Winston Super Lights, and Winston One.
Winston cigarettes claim to have no additives.
