Frog Morton is one of McClelland's most popular Latakia-based blends, and its singular composition sets it apart from the competition. At its heart, the star of the show is rich, smoky Cyprian Latakia. The blend also stays away from the usuall addition of Orientals and is completed simply with McClelland's fine Virginias, but what makes is so different is a subtle, but complementary top note that ties everything together harmoniously.
The name Frog Morton comes to us from the works of JRR Tolkien. Frogmorton: A village in the Eastfarthing of the Shire. It stood on the East Road, between the Three-farthing Stone (fourteen miles to the west) and the Brandywine Bridge (twenty-two miles to the east). Immediately to the north of the village, the stream known as the Water broke into two, creating a wide watery region - this feature seems to have given Frogmorton its name, which means "frog marsh".
