    Before this site I smoke From Morton et all almost exclusively. I stopped to enjoy all of the tobaccos that you all enjoy but decided to go back to my old favorite. Man I love the stuff. What did you smoke before you joined the forum?

    I had only smoked aromatics until about fifteen years ago a friend gave me a bowl of Frog Morton to try.I'm still in love with Latakia after these many years.The folks who make Frog Morton have a bulk blend 2045 which I think is very similar.

    Super Value pipe tobacco.

    Thankfully, I've learned the error of my ways.

    I used to smoke a lot of BCA from Walgreens and a blend they used to carry a value blend called Black and Burley. I used to also smoke SWR, which I still keep in my rotation. Then a couple years ago I began to explore English Blends, but not too seriously. After joining the forum I opened my eyes and looked at all that I could be found on line, and that began my spiral descent into full blown TAD. So many blends, so little time and money.

    Yes, Frog Morton is very good. I plan to try the other 3 in the near future.

    I like Frog Morton a lot. Whether it be the original, or On the Town, or On the Bayou i really appreciate the fullness of this tobacco. Don't care for the Across the Pond version, though.

    For those interested in trying all 4 pipesandcigars.com has a fair price on a sampler that includes a tin of each.

    Frog Morton on the Town is my absolute favorite smoke. Truly enjoy the other 3 flavors as well.

    Mostly University and Irish flake. I like the Frog Morton tin labels, but as they contain latakia I stay away from them.

    I have a sweet tooth, so I would say FMOTT in the morning, then On the Town, Bayou and then FM original at night. I am not sure it is mild to strong, but it seems like a good rotation to me.

    Which G.L. Pease blends are similar to the frog morton blends?? I am a new pipe smoker and mostly smoke aromatics and the frog morton line (especially the original and on the town). I would like to take a big leap and order some g.l. pease blends to transition me on the road to english blends. According to what i read, the frog morton line is not an english blend but a "mild english crossover"?? I'm a little scared ordering blends I dont know much about or how they are going to taste and smell ( i smoke around alot of non-smokers)?? If anyone has any comparisons to the frog morton line, insight, or suggestions...they are greatly appreciated?? This is what I was considering ordering (waiting on insight before i place order):

    Barbary Coast 2 oz
    Blackpoint 2 oz
    Charing Cross 2oz
    Maltese Falcon 2oz
    Odyssey 2oz
    Picadilly 2oz
    Samarra 2oz
    Union Square 2oz
    Westminster 8 oz
    frog morton 100g
    frog morton on the town 100g
    cao tin blue note (dan tobacco?)
    First responders (tribute remake?)

    I just bought Frog Morton on the Bayou today, and I fell in love with it.

    Corn cob, clay, it doesn't matter; tobacco smoked great in any bowl.

    I loved it so much that I smoked 3 times today. (Usually, I'm not such a heavy smoker. I only smoke 2-3 times per week.)

    I order the GLP Blackpoint and mix it 50/50 with the Kensington for my own English 'private stock' blend. Blackpoint is heavier with more Latakia and may be a bit much for you. I would recommend trying Westminster and Kensington with Westminster being the milder of the two. These are excellent tobacco blends and you'll get a good English type blend experience with these.

    I really love Westminster but I'm not sure I would recommend it first off around non-smokers (though I've been complimented on it by one). The frog's are going to seem very mild compared to Westminster. I can't speak to the other blends you mention.
