    Sometimes I like a really simple blend - just latakia and virginia, for example.

    I don't really know what Chesdin has in it, or if it's a "pure" English tobacco or what (I suspect a coffee-like top flavoring), but I am really digging this stuff right now.

    Made by McClellands for Altadis's Benjamin Hartwell line, this is nice stuff - similar in attitude to Frog Morton, but where Froggy is kind of rubbery this stuff actually will dry out. It's sweeter than Commonwealth, but less sweet than Frog - I find Frog gets a little sickening after awhile (might do with Chesdin too, dunno).

    Anyway, for an interesting and very easy smoke, Chesdin Mixture is really pretty good stuff.

    Not at all familiar with it. I smoke FMOTT and that's a standard in my rotation, but am looking for finalists for my English blend for all time (if there ever will be such a thing). :ohyh: I'm going to check this one out. Thanks! :puffy:

    FMOTT is really good. I like it better than the original, or rather, I can smoke it for longer periods without getting sick of it. Have you tried "Old Dublin" from Peterson, Coal? It's like a "grown up" version of FMOTT.

    I have a tin of "Across the Pond" too... maybe I should open that thing up some time...
