    I love all of the Frog Morton blends. Is 5110 a close substitute? It's a lot cheaper as it comes in bulk. Thanks.

    I've never tried 5110, but 5125 might be in the ballpark.

    I recently got some 5110 in a trade with johnny. It is close to FMOTT, but not the same. 5110 has a great aftertaste but during the smoke I always feel like it's lacking something. Add a couple of ounces to your next order to see what you think of it. If you like FMOTT you won't dislike 511o, but you may feel like you'd rather be smoking the Frog. Just my £0.02 worth!

    Thanks a lot for the advice. I think I will order a few ounces with my next TAD order. I'm anxious to check it out.

    When you compare the difference in cost per ounce, it's close enough. (It was for me, anyway.)

    It is quite a bit stouter IMO.
