Which Organic soil?

I did a 20H a few months back capped with sand and planted in a low tech setup. I love the results and I am looking to do the same now in my 120. I plan on doing a 2" layer of soil, and then a 1.5" cap of Black Diamond Blasting sand.

Problem is, I don't remember what potting soil I went with. I just grabbed one that said organic and didnt list manure. Should I go this same route again or is there a specific brand anyone swears by?

If it worked last time...guess it wouldn't hurt to use it again. I think that Miracle Grow Organic is more or less the go to though. Probably because it's cheap enough and easy for most to find.

Unfortunately it seems the miracle grow is no longer available as an option. Any other viable options out there?
