    Going through the blends that had been recommended to me by fellow forum members, I have now had a few bowls of Frog Morton on the Town. It is a delicious and mellow smoke, like an after-dinner dessert. Even though it is considered an English blend, it doesn't have the earthy, leathery bitterness (not necessarily a bad thing) of say, Dunhill London Mixture. There is a hint of tangy sourness, almost metalic in taste, that hits the tongue as I sip. What component of the blend is driving that flavor? is it the Basma?

    A truly enjoyable smoke. Thanks everyone for the recommendation.

    Yeah the Basma presents as a fairly sharp, almost cedar-like tangy flavor. IF you like it, Peterson's "Old Dublin" is right between FMOTT and London Mixture.

    No idea how Jon gets as much computer time as he does at the Correctional Facility.
