The exploratory journey of The Flavourist ends today to discover the secrets of the new Back in Black line by Azhad’s Elixirs, line I remember, entirely dedicated to Latakia tobacco.
I remind you that these products are marketed in the form of concentrated 20 ml flavors in a 60 ml bottle. The aromas should therefore be diluted by adding a neutral 40 ml base. A quick shaken will make them immediately ready for use.

These are the first reviews ever made on these liquids and you probably will not find many others around at least for a while. After Black Latakia, Black 99% and Black Caribbean, review poker ends with Black Mamba:
…. An aromatic intersection between Latakia tobacco and mango with a slight hint of menthol in exhalation.
Even Black Mamba, like all its predecessors, has a characteristic dark brown color, we called it turbid, very similar to the color of an American coffee.

Since the olfactory examination, I am struck by the winking perfume that comes out of the bottle. The dark and intense tobacco background, as befits a true self-respecting latakia, is penetrated by energetic exotic cues, with slightly acidic notes that intertwine with softer and velvety perceptions. Even in this circumstance, indeed perhaps more so than in the case of Black Caribbean, the combination of the raw strength of Latakia with the vivid nuances of an exotic fruit such as mango, appears singular and also very ambitious.
Since previous Back in Black products have been reviewed with a Berserker RTA, it seemed logical and natural to conclude the reviews of the line using the same atomizer with the same configuration. Now that my curiosity is skyrocketing, I’m ready to face the Black Mamba vaporization test.
It is not easy to describe the viper Black Mamba, first because they are for the first time in the presence of such an aromatic combination, and secondly because the result of the union between the elements chosen by Azhad is so special to be afraid of failing to find the right words to illustrate it and enhance it as it deserves.
Would you ever have thought of it? I personally do not. I approached this creation with much suspicion and, fortunately, I was blatantly denied. Black Mamba is a magical journey, a journey faced by two perfect strangers, with deeply different characters, who discover during the journey not only not to be incompatible, but rather to possess many affinities.
Latakia and Mango, so strong, intense and smoky the first, so graceful, jaunty and lively the second.
In every phase of the puff the alternating between the candid and vigorous nuances of the latakia and the mango-acidulous sweetness of the mango appears as a sort of intriguing and mischievous exchange game.
The intimacy of latakia meets the vitality of the mango. Woody and smoky notes that recall a fireplace atmosphere merge with light sweet and citrus blasts on a warm midsummer night.
Black Mamba is a vivid union between opposites that attract each other.
The magic of such a sublime amalgam makes her the expert and creative hand of Azhad who manages to balance the tobacco and the fruit by showing them in a joint hug but always recognizable individually. The notes of the mango are more lively when inhaled and in the heart of the puff, the smoky component of the latakia in the tail and in the aromatic persistence is more decisive, with the addition of a slight mentholic touch that fills the whole structure and the combination of the exotic fruit and Syrian tobacco.
As with Black Caribbean, the intersection of several different elements makes the e-liquid very versatile; it can be vaped both as a classic extracted tobacco, and as a fruity tobacco flavored, very suitable for the hottest season.
Black Mamba is the sublimation of summer tobacco especially for those who during the sultry days of the sol lion does not want to abandon a strong and decisive tabaccoso stamp.
We have always been accustomed to very aromatic and delicate summer tobaccoses, which tend to deprive themselves of the dark characteristics of the fire cured tobaccos and their cumbersome nuances. Until now…
A summer tobaccowith latakia? You can do it, Azhad did it!
Fresh, brilliant and impertinent.
Suggested dilution: about 33% = add 40 ml of neutral base inside the bottle containing the aroma.
Steeping time: Immediately ready.
Pro: A real magic tobacco e-juice labeled Azhad’s Elixirs
