Let’s go back today to Synergy Vape, the brand born from the collaboration between two renowned Italian producers, Blendfeel and Tornado Juice. A collaboration born with the aim of creating fantastic synergies between the best products of both producers. The basic idea is to combine the absolute knowledge of Blendfeel’s extracted tobaccos with the aromatic mastery of Tornado Juice’s creamy and fruity liquids. Thanks to this they have succeeded in creating new, special and very inviting recipes that have established themselves over time, succeeding in bringing many people closer to the world of flavored tobacco products.
The line includes seven concentrated aromas, many of which have already passed under our magnifying glass, resulting in really concrete and well-studied. Black N’gold, Creamy Latakia, Grecale, Lentini’s Cigar, Oriental Fusion, T.M.C. e Wrong Love.. In these trial periods, we believe we can say lightly that these liquids have set themselves the goal of not giving the most experienced vapers a different perspective on flavored tobaccos, but we also give them the merit of being really suitable for those who want getting closer to the world of tobacco, not being caught off guard at first sight, in fact the pure Blendfeel tobacco extracts are sweetened and softened by fragrant aromas that tend to make them definitely less decisive and generally sweeter and less “rough” on the palate.
That said, we come to the protagonist of today, in fact it will be the turn of Black N’Gold which is thus described by the producer:
A Latakia without compromise, strong, smoky and incensed, enhanced by a Virginia fire cured, fancifully blends with the citrus notes of the Sicilian lemon. An unusual set able to amaze the most refined public, and a lover of solar tastes.
Reading the description we cannot but be struck, we are immediately conveyed the desire to experiment and to propose something new and different from the producers who have experimented with a very special recipe, the strong dark tobacco latakia with smoky and incense notes made more smoky from virginia cured to fire, they go to embrace sour and fresh notes of lemon, in a definitely lively and unusual composition. With a recipe so the risk of failure is very high, will the skilled hands of the aromatic masters have been able to balance and do justice to the ingredients of the recipe?
The packaging of each Synergy Vape includes a cardboard tube that holds a 10 ml amber-flavored glass bottle and a very useful adhesive sticker to put on the bottle and where the information on the preparation (name aroma, nicotine level, base composition and preparation date).
Let’s start by saying that the first impact is certainly very interesting. Everything is very natural and real. Surely the predominant note is given by the creamy and fruity component, a cream that immediately presents its sweet, mouth-watering and very inviting characteristics. The fruity component is perfectly inserted inside the cream and gives us the feeling of being just a lemon custard, with a touch of freshness and a disruptive acidulous note. On the nose it remains very difficult to perceive the tabaccosa part in spite of the fact that it is treated with tobaccos, therefore with a great aromatic presence, we can only identify incensed notes and a strange tingling in the nose, probably given by the slightly spicy notes of the mixture of latakia and virginia fire cured, which we find in the whole.
The first puff in its entirety is very tasty and at the same time full. The first notes that are presented are those of the Sicilian lemon, a juicy fruit that manages to transmit all its characteristics to us, slightly fresh, with acid but at the same time sweetened nuances, inserted in a creamy frame, built by rich fat and delicious components . The background instead is composed of slightly spicy and spicy incense scents, almost as if this lemon cream has been “stained” by the hardness of the fire cured tobaccos but that manages to contrast the fat with the dry part creating a unique synergy.
But our test certainly does not want to end like this, so we continue going to analyze more in detail the steam clouds: in the initial part a precious and decisive fruity component given by the really rich and juicy lemon. The slightly fresh Sicilian lemon is lashed by slightly acidic and slightly sweetened tails, which raises its aromatic values going to merge with a cream with warm, delicious and very fatty tones. The creamy timbre has light, dense and vanilla nuances and recreates the sensation of a really tasty lemon custard, almost to be eaten at the spoon. As imagined also thanks to the olfactory test the tobacco plays a scenographic role, often remaining in the rear, one cannot perceive precisely the two tobaccos, the most aromatic and decisive latakia of virginia, we find it in the incensed and slightly spicy note we perceive on the tip of the tongue in the final phase of the puff, certainly virginia even if we are told that in reality it has been cured by fire tends to merge in this aromatic composition adding value to the slightly sugary note of the liquid. We can say that the final tabaccosa note, being a flavored tobacco, is the worthy conclusion of a liquid focused on the fruity and creamy notes that creates a unique synergy going to “clean” the sweetness with its smoky notes leaving us satisfied and never bored.
Black N’Gold lends itself to being a very valid all day vape also thanks to the aromatic sensations that, although simple, appear very sought after and inviting. In this recipe we find a fusion between ingredients that embrace all or almost the tastes of vaper, from the light tobacco base, to the fruity and creamy components. Black N’Gold is great for those who want to experience the hardness of fire cured tobaccos but without giving up the sweetness and creaminess given in this case by the lemon cream.
