Wow, when the folks at Park Lane said this one was similar to the Frog Morton series their blend description they weren’t kidding. The pouch scent is very similar to Frog Morton on the Town. It appears to be blended using a large portion of McClelland tobaccos too. With all that said, Park Lane No. 8 is not a match blend, but simply part of the genre. It is a little bit moist so it needs to be dried. When lit PL8 is mild, lightly sweet and IMO offers a bit more body than FMOTT. It burns cleanly and is balanced. PL8 is smoky, and adds a bit of spice that shows up about mid bowl. The Cavendish adds a little sweetness and body. I enjoy this type of blend on occasion, but it wouldn’t be a “rotation” blend for me. Lovers of the Frog series and Northwoods from Boswell’s should have this on their short list. Park Lane No. 8 accomplishes its intention and so it’s highly recommended.
