McClelland Craftbury Collection Across the Pond is fairly similar to the original FrogMorton. This time around however, just the right helping of rare Syrian Latakia was added to the fray for a bit more oomph. Across the Pond burns cool and smooth revelaing a pleasant room note and a mellow spicy-sweet character.
I thoroughly enjoy this and it is one of my first ventures into Latakia. I understand their other offerings have more Punch in that department mostly due to country of Latakia origin. That just means I'll have to try the others too. But overall, pleasant, no bite, not wet if smoked slowly and it leaves a nice aftertaste that lingers on my palate.

I think of myself as a aromatics guy. This was my first English blend and it is now one of my favorites. It smokes cool and bold. It also taste delicious
