Hi all!
So Im kind of new to pipe. Been smoking cigar, but stopped since I started pipe! I started with a MM great dane pipe and MM tobacco and I am very pleaed with it!! After reasearching for a while I found that Frog morton tobacco use to be a good tobacco ! I would love to smoke some but since it not in production any more price is up!! I am bidding on ebay but pric is high! ( around 80-100$). So should I give it a try or there any good tobacco I should get for this money ??

Thank for your thoughts !!

If your goal to to smoke Frog Morton you'll just have to pay market price. If your goal to to find satisfying blends to smoke, don't waste your money on unobtainium when there are so many great blends still available.

You can buy 9 to 10 tins of other tobacco to try for $100. IMHO, you'd be much better served to choose the former. However, your money, your choice.

BTW, even by eBay standards, $100 for a 100 gram tin of Frog Morton is high. They mostly go for around $50 to $65.

Hi mmcobber. Up to ya. I don’t know what your disposable income looks like.
Me personally, no, I wouldn’t spend $100 on any of the Frog offerings. It’s sad and I’ll miss it. Mcclellands took me by surprise and I’m left with one 50g tin each of Frog/Town and Frog/Cellar.
Then again, some folks drop thousands on a single pipe and think nothing of it. More power to ‘em! Me, I don’t own a pipe worth over $300, and most of mine are in the $100ish range.
Sadly, I’m not sure of any blends that are close to the Frogs. I’d let it go and enjoy maybe Bengal Slices, Northwoods, GLP Gaslight or Quiet Nights, Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding... if you’ve not had some of those yet. There’s really too many great currently available offerings to list, as you may well know.

$100? Absolutely. I'd light it with 500 Euro banknotes and smoke it while I cruised around Monaco in my Bugatti.

I have a few 100 gram tins of FMC I picked up on eBay for about $62 each. I wouldn't pay more than that. I will not be buying anymore evan at the $62 price. There are too many great tobacco's out there for a much better price.

Don't have but a bit of McClellan left. Sold off most I had at the war prices. Decided if I couldn't get more, why not .
