Frog Morton original is probably my all-time favorite tobacco. Despite how much I love the original, I've never tried the other Frogs, but I hear they're all pretty damn good in their own way. It all comes down to personal taste, but I wouldn't feel bad recommending the Frog to anyone.

The four Frogmortons could not be more different from one another and still contain latakia!

The original Frog is probably the most tried and true pure recipe. But liking that one absolutely does not guarantee you'll like the others.

FMOTT is a lighter mixture with a very prominent flavor of Turkish Basma leaf. This produces a sweeter smoke that makes for a nice crossover mixture for those just getting their feet wet with the taste of latakia. On the other hand, a lot of experienced smokers also love it. It's my fave of the 4.

The other two use perique or Syrian instead of Cyprian latakia to produce distinctive blends.

Are they all good? Yes. Will you like all four? Well, that's for you to decide. :groucho:

While I have not tried Frog Morton, I do smoke FMOTT and really like it for its lighter and delicate smoke compared to some of the other english or balkan blends that I smoke. It is a bit of a change up smoke for me that I can smoke anytime and enjoy it. It can be an anytime or daily smoke if you prefer something a little more mellow I think.

I like the Across the Pond. A lighter sort of English mix, and I think it is the Oriental toby that makes it different from the other Frogs. I will try the others since they are so popular.

ATP uses Syrian latakia instead of Cyprian, trading that smokiness we've come to associate with latakia for a smoother, creamier taste that's still latakia. McClellands seems to be the only blending house with a stash of Syrian these days and if you like ATP, you might want to try 3 Oaks Syrian.

Creamier is a good word for it. Thanks for the info and the tip.

FM is the one Latakia blend I do not like (no offense to anyone on this forum who likes the stuff.) However, many smokers do seem to like it so I am likely the oddball.

I love the original. In fact Im running out of it. Its the perfect night time after dinner type smoke for me. And my wife likes the room note (porch note) on it...bonus.

I bought a tin of On the Town last time I was at a shop. Very good stuff. Haven't tried the rest yet, but I'm sure they're all just as good.

Yes, do try OTP. I got it as a PIF from a member on another forum and it is a great blend. I like it while I hang out and play dominoes outdoors

Frog Morton is probably one of the best tobacco's to segway to non-aromatics. Light, smooth consistent. I would start with that on then go to the other Frog's. As mentioned earlier, each one is different. No similarity at all.

I have and love FM and FMOTT.
They carry all 4 here at my local B&M's and am probably going to cop the other 2 soon on my next B&M run. :thumbsu:
