    McClelland's Frog Morton blends are some of my favorites - especially the original and the new "Cellar" varieties. I've only tried a few C&D blends (and that was years ago) but I know that a lot of you think very highly of their blends. Does C&D make anything similar to Frog Morton? Thanks.

    Pirate Kake is worth a try if the mood should strike you. It's a bit different than Frog Morton but the Latakia they use is absolutely sublime. It smokes cool and dry with a rich smoky flavor. Chances are you'll like it.

    Pirate Kake is a serious lat-bomb ... if you love lat-bombs then it's the bee's knees. Hubby thought he loved lat-bombs until he tried that one.

    The only blend I know that is really anything like Frog Morton is "Chesdin" in the Benjamin Hartwell tobaccos (also a McClelland product, at the end of the day).

    C/D Latakia mixtures that I have experienced (and that's probably a dozen of them) have been harsh, strong, sour, and bitter compared to Froggy, which is VERY sweet indeed. C/D makes "serious" tobacco.

    Depends how similar you want. Star of the East is a great Latakia/Virginia blend, but with no orientals (or whisky topping or chunk of oak).

    Frog is very sweet for sure, but for my tastes, I think that the harsh, strong, sour and bitter are not true in the case of Star of the East. Definitely a little more rugged than the McC blends for sure.

    Mississippi Mud is a bit fuller but has a little sweetness to it, closest one I can think of.
