    Newbie here- after sampling a few tobaccos (I prefer the sweeter cavendish blends) I would like to try Frog Morton & don't mind purchasing a tin to do so. I've read that the Frog Morton Cellar is sweeter than the regular. Is this true? Does anyone have any further advice?

    To my taste buds it is. Still tastes familiar as a Frog Morton blend, but much sweeter. It is a carmelly bourbon sweetness added to the smokey Frog Morton goodness. I enjoy both quite a bit.... i need to get around to trying the remaining two. :D

    That's a pretty drastic transition - like going from Bud Light to Guinness.

    Anyway, half the fun of this is the experimentation. Enjoy!

    I like Frog on the Town and on the Bayou the best.

    I kind of agree with lifeofriley, they're two different beasts.
    Cellar def does have some sweet notes. The bourbon taste was strong fresh out of the tin, but after being jarred about a month, it's faded quite a bit, leaving a more sweet taste (to me). Also, are you familiar with Latakia? This may throw off the sweetness you gravitate to.

    I posted a review a while back, it may help, it may not: worth a shot!
