McClelland: Craftsbury: Frog Morton on the Bayou 50g
Product Number: 003-041-0015
With a lighter Latakaia and addition of Orientals, McClelland takes Frog Morton on the Bayou more into the light to medium Balkan range while the addition of Perique brings a sweetness and subtle hint of spice.
I've tried the complete Frog Morton lineup, after they were recommended to me by a local tobacconist, and while they're all not bad or offensive tobaccos, I can find absolutely nothing remarkable or special about any of them to recommend them. That i... Read Mores, unless mediocrity is your cup of tea. For the price spent on these, one can do MUCH better. I would never waste my time or my money on these again. I think perhaps they caught on and became popular as a fad, because some supposed "authority" said they were exceptional. I'm not a snob when it comes to taste in anything, and don't habitually consume things --- tobacco, wine, whisky, anything --- just because some "authorities" of taste have deemed them worthy. I eat, drink, & smoke what I like and I'm not apologetic for it; I don't eschew the common because it's common, and am not a fan of something simply because it may be more esoteric and preferred by "those in the know". Anyway, spend your money elsewhere and find remarkably good tobacco, unless Frog Morton is what you prefer. I just happen not to. Read Less

This English has a bit of pep! The Perique is enough to keep it interesting, a new Favorite for me in the FM series along with FM original! And to quote the last review, it grows on you as you smoke it!

Frog Morton on the Bayou grows on you the more you smoke it. Without question it's one of my favorites due to its subtle smoky, sweet, mellowness. I reserve this for the evening smoke on my porch. They got this one right.

This is a woody blend. Flavor of spiced BBQ. Strong flavor and spiciness. I prefer Frog Morton Cellar blend.
A Smooth Blend

Frog Morton on the Bayou is well-balanced, smooth and sweet. This blend is mellow and easy to smoke and one that I'll continue to keep in my rotation. This is the first tobacco in the series that I've tried, but I will definitely be trying the othe... Read Morers. Read Less
One of the Better Ones

This is one of the very few tobaccos I've had that actually gets better as you smoke it. Just the perfect amount of Perique!
what an amazing blend, even for an aromatic smoker!

I smoke almost strictly aromatics, lately I've been trying out and playing with new non-aro blends, i basically just ordered what ever sounded good, and this one was just off the chart! it has a lot of natural tobacco flavor that is just perfect, not... Read More to heavy, but a very woodsy, smooth, light earthy-sweet note to it that really kept me diving back into the tin nightly, but then again, I've yet to try any McCelland blend that i haven't liked =) great tobacco, would recommend to anyone!

Sweet, Tangy, Woody
January 22, 2014
By: Jorge G.
I knew I needed to order more of this tobacco during the pre-light. As soon as I put a match to this leaf it got my attention. It was sweet and tangy. I am assuming this is from the virginias and perique. Once I got it well lit I could start noticing... Read More the latakia coming through. The rest of the bowl was a back and forth flavor between sweet, tangy, and smoky. I really enjoy this blend and have stumbled upon a 3 year old tin that was phenomenal. I mention this for those of you who like to cellar tobacco. I highly recommend this blend. Read Less
Frog Morton on the Bayou - a good Perique blend
October 26, 2013
By: Johnny R.
This blend has a really good Perique "flavor" right out of the tin and I will need to order some more so I can cellar it for aging. If it ages the same way that my other Perique and Perique/Latakia blends age, then it will be truly great!
Sweet, pleasant smoke!!

IMHO this is the best version of Frog Morton´s series. Wonderful sweetness and perfectly balanced flavors make this tobacco one of my to-go ones.

I bought this tin on a recommendation from a fellow pipe smoker. I usually like aromatic tobaccos and wanted to try something a bit different. This blend burned cool and very evenly. All the flavors coming out during the smoke were mellow and not ... Read Moreto harsh. To my palate, I noticed a very light pepper like flavor but it was pleasant. I enjoyed On the Bayou and will probably try other blends in the Frog Morton line based on my experience with this blend. Read Less

This is kind of an average blend IMHO. Not too harsh but fairly non decript. I'll smoke the rest of the can but would probably not re order.
