McClelland Frog Morton Across the Pond

This item is no longer available for purchase.

Frog Morton Across the Pond brings some different elements into play for this entry in the very popular Frog Morton series. Firstly, the Latakia is lighter and more condimental in this blend, which allows the sweetness of the Virginias and the tang of the Orientals to shine through a bit more. The biggest change, however, is using rare and delicate Syrian Latakia in place of the heavier, more pungent Cyprian variety. The result is sweet and somewhat zesty with a subtle smokiness and a bit of a wine-like character.

Wonderful, Complex, Blend
I love the stuff. Much milder compared to Cypriot Latakia blends, but more complex: you don't feel like it needs anything added. The moisture is highish in the tins I have used, so I like to unseal a tin, leave the lid off a couple days, then mix the stuff. For the way I pack a pipe--pretty much the Child-Woman-Man technique--I find ATP burns hotter than most other blends, and is faster to go out. Maybe I need to dry it more. But the taste is superb, and you can puff three bowls at a time without feeling your face will come off. If we are truly, not going to see more, I will be crushed!

Empty taste, wanting more.
I love the Frog Morton series. Across the pond however is my least favorite. Quality is there but you can barely taste it. The whole time smoking it I wanted more. You could almost taste what I love about Frog On The Town which is my favorite but across the pond failed to deliver in taste. Watered down is how I felt. Nothing tasted bad just left wanting more.

Frog Morton Across the Pond Does Not Disappoint!
The entire Frog Morton collection is quite good but there are a few standouts. Frog Morton's Cellar being one of them (my favorite) and Frog Morton Across the Pond being another. Across the Pond is the most different from the others as it contains some Orientals into play and it is noticeable. Very, very nice and smooth smoke with a very pleasing room note. For me, this was a relaxing smoke. I will be purchasing more of this one from P&C.

This frog opened the door to English blends
Frog Morton Across the Pond is the tobacco that confirmed to me that I do, in fact, enjoy English blends. I had been an aromatic smoker for years, and began to feel that all the tastes were beginning to muddle together and taste the same. Mellow, flavorful, with a mild yet very present latakia smokiness that has become one of my go-to tobaccos.

outstanding, cool smoke. Syrian Latakia is the best latakia and proves it in this tobacco.

fantastic
I am a fan of the Syrian latakia and the blend hits the spot for me. a fantastic nightly smoke. The frog morton series is popular for a reason and this might be my favorite.

I like it a lot
But I like the Full Balkan a bit better. Wish I could get either of them in bulk.

McClelland frog morton across the pond
this is an awesome english blend!!! Just the right mix of latakia and virginias! i smoke it all day but it would make a great night smoke! The syrian isn't for everyone so you might have to smoke it out on the porch.

Great Latakia blend
Excellent Latakia blend. Nice cool smoke with lots of flavor.

It is a wonderful smoke. But I will pass on it in the future.
While this is a nice smoke I found it to not smell as great in the tin. It has the scent of liquid smoke which made me think of cooking out on the grill. That is the only drawback I find is the liquid smoke scent. I have not ever tried Frog Morton before. It smokes very smooth.

Excelent. Great smoky tin note that carries over to the taste. Not too strong but has just enough kick. Excited to try all of the frog morton line

OK, But a Near Miss.....
Upon opening the tin, the room note was nice. A little smokey, but different than the usual Latakia, maybe a little creamier. There was some spice and sweetness in there as well. It was a nice ribbon cut. The moisture was just about right. It loaded and lit well. The burn was nice and even, and it did not bite. The first few puff were a little smokey, but in a more water vapory way. There was some spice and a little sweetness. I tasted mostly Red Virginia, and some Orientals. After it settled down, I got an unsatisfied feeling. Something wasn't there that should be, sort of like marinara with no oregano. I could never put my finger on it, but it just wasn't satisfying. It tasted fine, but I think what I was missing was the more pronounced taste of Cyprian Latakia, as opposed to the Syrian. For an English, or Balkan blend, it is way too mild. Other than that, it burned all the way to a fine grey ash at the bottom with only 1 re-light, never bit, or gurgled. Over-all, this just isn't what I wanted. But it may be your cup of tea, if you want something non-aromatic, but very light.

Not for me
This smoke was very boring to me. I have smoked all of the FM's, and enjoy them all because each of them have slightly unique characteristics. However, Across The Pond just doesn't intrigue me. It burns well, and it smokes cool, but there is something missing.

Frog Morton across the pond
the tobacco is great, probably my new favorite. The experience of ordering through your company was also extremely positive. The prices, availability of the requested items, vast variety of products, quick shipping, ability to track shipments, customer service, etc. (I could go on) make dealing with pipes and cigars a pleasure. I'm promise I will continue to be a loyal customer. It was my pleasure.. The deals and coupon type emails I receive are also greatly appreciated. Your company is excellent, you guys really have something special going..

Great tasting,smokes cool and love the Syrian Latakia blend. Sometimes I like to mix in a little Molto Dolce with it.
Customer Testimonials
I am a big fan of Cellar and Bayou. Tried this as part of my sampler, while enjoyable, it did not impress me so much as to say "WOW!!!!! order more". Now with that said, it burned very cool and the smoke was enjoyable. Overall it is good stuff, and compared to other product lines it is great...... but in my opinion when compared to the other Frog's that are out there, it has some catching up to do. (but I wont be trading it to anyone)

This blend came as part of the FM Sampler. It's the third of the tins that I've opened and it's not one my favorites. Perfectly good smoke but it doesn't "wow" me like some of the other FM blends. I find it to be a little sharp, even acrid. I'll try it in some different pipes and see if that makes me happier. For now, this one'll remain on my " Meh" list.
BH of Orrington, ME
My second Frog Morton. The tobaccos are the same as "on the town" but I thought this tasted completely different. A little stronger perhaps and though very nice I'll be staying with "on the town".
