Caput Mundi – Review

INTRODUCTION

Today I have in my hands the latest creation of the Italian company La Tabaccheria as well as the first 10 ml concentrated aroma in the “white” or “extreme for pod” version, if you prefer: I’m talking about the Caput Mundi aroma that has the great particularity of combining the characteristics of two well-known lines of the Roman company, the “white” line and the more recent “Gran Riserva” line.

Everything is already known about the White Extreme 4Pod Line, but for those who were not yet aware of it, I remember that it is tobacco organic aromas that thanks to the selective purification technology, manages to maintain all the taste characteristics of the reference tobacco without deteriorating quickly the coil of an atomizer. The Extreme 4Pod vaping liquids are soft and velvety and become the perfect product for those who love the taste of tobacco and want to use it on entry level systems.

With regard to the Gran Riserva aromas, on the other hand, it must be said that they are pure tobacco extracts in the classic La Tabaccheria style, but with a refining process in oak barrels. In short, it is a line of extracts designed mainly for long-term vapers that use almost exclusively regenerable devices.

La Tabaccheria Caput Mundi colosseo

The Caput Mundi aroma is therefore a synthesis between the lines just mentioned, a product that promises to satisfy both the needs of less experienced vapers and users of pre-made coil systems, and those of expert vapers used to vaping with regenerable systems.

CAPUT MUNDI DESCRIPTION

Below is the official description of the Caput Mundi aroma:

The first concentrated flavour where the features of our Gran Riserva products meet the properties of our Extreme 4Pod – White!

A novel “white”, the first one to have been refined by exquisite durmast woods which endow the taste-aromatic spectrum of tobacco with a new dimension, juxtaposing its notes with the smooth and mellow ones obtained from the durmast woods. A tobacco characterized by a superb taste equilibrium, which denotes an extremely-hard-to-balance integrity, when analysing its “mellowness” together with its robust and strong structure.

The perfect balance between sweetishness and bitterness leaves a “clean” palate; the enveloping woodenness, the optimization of the flavour of tobacco, elevate this White to the Olympus of Gran Riserva. This time we used a peculiar kind of selective purification, where we maintain a great body and a good persistency, making it worth of being tasted not only on entry-level systems but also using rebuildable atomizers!

SMELL TEST

On the smell, Caput Mundi presents itself as a decidedly full-bodied and strong aroma, with no ifs and buts. From the first press on the bottle, an intense woodiness and smoke pervades my nostrils making me recognize the presence of Latakia tobacco in the first place and probably Kentucky tobacco, due to a slight note of manure that accompanies the smoky scents of the aroma. From the rear, softer and more spicy shades peep out, they are only hinted at but just enough to make the blend round and as a whole less angular than imagined in the very first moments of the olfactory examination.

La Tabaccheria Caput Mundi SPQR

 

Ultimately, the smell test of Caput Mundi showed me a tobacco aroma with marked hints of wood and an evident smoky notes; a decisive and sometimes angular aromatic score due to the swagger of two strong tobaccos such as Latakia and Kentucky. What will happen in the vape test?

VAPE TEST

Devices: Ambition Mods Bishop MTL RTA 0,95 ohm (Kanthal A1 27 AWG) + BD Vape Precisio MTL RTA 1,00 ohm (Kanthal A1 28 AWG) with Fiber N’ Cotton.

    Bishop RTA by Ambition Mods e The Vaping Gentlemen Club    BD Vape Precisio RTA MTL

The devices adopted for this test are the Bishop by Ambition Mods created in collaboration with The Vaping Gentlemen Club and the Precisio by BD Vape.

On vape Caput Mundi does not betray the expectations and the excellent premises of the olfactory test, but in a certain sense it changes clothes and takes on the role of an English mixture with a noble and at the same time modern appearance. The e-liquid is homogeneous and very structured from the first puff and the Latakia, so dominant during the nasal test, now becomes one of the characterizing elements of the blend but never completely takes over.

Latakia is easily perceived in inspiration but almost stripped of its spicier notes, to leave room for deep and alluring hints of wood, with a delicately round effect, completely unsuspected in my view after the overbearing olfactory test.

To the initial cues of Latakia enriched and ennobled by the refinement in oak woods typical of the Gran Riserva line aromas, a dark smoke is added which will be more or less intense according to the atomizer used; in my case it is the Precisio that most exalts these smoky scents, while on the Bishop the whole aromatic structure is more amalgamated and velvety.

Miscela Englis Blend per pipa

Caput Mundi is a “white” aroma that releases a great aromatic complexity and shows a truly enviable “analog” character. In the heart of the puff, the aromatic perceptions turn slightly towards a blend with softer and sweeter characteristics, even if the background of Caput Mundi is always persistently woody and dark.

Finally, at the end a light and persuasive spiciness introduces the delicate aromatic persistence after vaping, which makes this liquid perfect for those who want to vape all day long a medium strong tobacco e-liquids, savory and characterized by a vibrant and dry aroma.

CAPUT MUNDI FINAL VERDICT

Caput Mundi is a crossroads of two extraction technologies developed by the most important Italian company in terms of extraction of tobaccos for inhalation e-liquids. Caput Mundi is the perfect synthesis between the Gran Riserva extracts and the Extreme 4 Pods of La Tabaccheria. The result is an aroma completely similar to a classic organic tobacco extract with the surplus of being extremely coil friendly (the overall 65 ml obtained from mixing the aroma can be easily vape with a single coil). Trust me: no vaper, if properly blindfolded, would be able to recognize that it is a “purified” organic tobacco …

And after trying Caput Mundi, I can only recommend that you try this one other AROMA from Extreme 4Pod line

Suggested dilution: 15%

The Flavourist voto 4,5

Pro: The “white” blend by La Tabaccheria very complex and closer to a classic tobacco extract. And also the best one…

Cons: More expensive than the market average for 10ml concentrates

Sciocco SOLO line by Blendfeel – Review

INTRODUCTION

SOLO acronym for Simply Organic Lasting Over is the name of a new aromas line that marks the official entrance of Blendfeel into the increasingly crowded world of organic tobaccos for non-rebuildable systems. Even Blendfeel therefore, albeit a bit late compared to other Italian manufacturers, decides to take the big step towards what objectively represents the biggest news of the last years for what concerns the vaping.

And it does not matter if, at least at the moment, the manufacture of tobaccos, clarified, distilled, selectively purified or call them as you wish, represents and is almost exclusively limited to the Italian domestic market, the fact is that this new category of e-liquid has made accessible the consumption of tobacco extracts to all types of vapers and not only to the most experienced.

Blendfeel Sciocco linea SOLO boccetta chubby gorilla

Blendfeel tells us about the path that led to the birth of SOLO: “The goal was to produce organic flavours with organoleptic characteristics comparable to traditional flavours but that could reduce as much as possible the phenomena of deterioration of the coils making them usable in an absolutely long-lasting way also in non-regenerable systems and POD. But their use will fully gratify lovers of high-performance regenerative atomisers by allowing them to enjoy the more complex nuances lavished by these extracts.

SOLO when we were convinced that this goal had been achieved we presented this product to the international market. SOLO is amazing for its aromatic charge and completeness of flavour as well as its unusually long life at a high aromatic level in any vape system.

The production of the flavour is very good. The production of the aroma starts with the tobacco leaves that we have selected over the years, dedicating to each cultivar a specific treatment and processing that has allowed us to enhance it, obtaining the maximum aromatic expression.

More extraction and purification techniques have been used than we ever thought possible, but above all it was the modifications to the production equipment normally used that made the difference. The extreme engineering of the extraction process has always been our way of approaching extraction processes, SOLO is the translation of know-how acquired through years of study and experimentation.

Blendfeel Sciocco linea SOLO boccetta chubby gorilla inclinata

All that remains to be done is to taste the flavour of our products. All that remains is to enjoy SOLO at any time of the day, both in the most frenetic moments and in those in which you can afford a meditative vape that paraphrases the SLOWVAPE concept coined years ago and that with SOLO finds further characterization and development.”

The SOLO line by Blendfeel currently has five shot aromas in the 20 + 40 format, or 20 ml of aroma inside a 60 ml bottle, to be filled by adding a base of 40 ml for a recommended final composition VPG 50/50. Therefore are part of this line the aromas Km0, Zio Sam, UK, Chiodo Fisso and Sciocco and, looking at the bottles of the products, we cannot fail to notice the beauty of the labels which in their simplicity give an undoubted “green” touch to the whole line.

SCIOCCO – DESCRIPTION

The first aroma that we will review here on the pages of The Flavourist is Sciocco, officially described as follows:

Like the bread from which a Toscano Doc takes its name, robust, full-bodied and unforgettable.

Kentucky tabacco foglie essiccate

SMELL TEST

On the smell Sciocco while presenting the typical hints of leather of a Kentucky fire cured extract, it has a lighter tone than a classic Kentucky extract. I perceive more lively grassy and vegetal nuances, while the smoky and stronger notes typical of this tobacco seem more in the rear. Overall the e-liquid maintains a good aromatic strength which I hope will develop further during vaporization; on the other hand, this is exactly what you expect from a Kentucky fire cured!

VAPE TEST

Devices: Innokin Zlide Tank MTL con Z-coil 1.6 ohm + Innokin Ares 2 single coil 1.10 ohm (Kanthal A1 28 AWG) with Cotton Bacon Prime

For the vape test I decided to use two Innokin atomizers, the Zlide Tank MTL with pre-made coils and the Ares 2 rebuildable atomizer.

Innokin Zlide   Innokin Ares 2 atomizzatore rigenerabile

Sciocco, the Tuscan Kentucky tobacco by Blendfeel in the SOLO version, is immediately intense and full-bodied and frankly, if I were not aware that it is a purified organic, I would find it hard to label it as such. This is not to say that there are no differences compared to the classic Kentucky extracts from the same manufacturer, but I would like to point out that from the  first puff this aroma has no difficulty in emerging in terms of aromatic intensity.

On the inhale the puff is warm and decisive and the Kentucky tobacco manifests itself with strength without any compromise. Enveloping like a classic Kentucky extract, in my opinion rounder and sweeter and with almost completely absent amarostic accents. Even the hints of manure typical of this tobacco so rough and without frills par excellence, in the Sciocco are reduced to a minimum and in all phases of the vape appear almost imperceptible.

Kentucky tabacco coltivato in Italia

In the heart of the puff, all the roundness of Sciocco explodes in its darkest forms, adding a good dose of smokiness to the hints of tanning perceived during inhalation. The name does not deceive (among other things the reference is to the Tuscany region from which comes the Kentucky used for the realization of this aroma) because Sciocco is a tobacco extract which, although purified and therefore able to guarantee incredible longevity to the coils of any type of atomizer, it is to all intents and purposes a deeply robust e-liquid with more than good smokiness.

SCIOCCO FINALI VERDICT

The fire cured tobaccos, notoriously known not only for being the strongest and most “analog” in vaping, but also for being the most aggressive with the coils and cotton of personal vaporizers, are now opening up to new frontiers, they find a new dimension of use thanks to their “clean” versions. The Sciocco by Blendfeel from SOLO line is one of the most shining examples.

Sciocco is captivating, has a strong and persistent flavor on the palate and each puff is always deeply intense and full-bodied. Oh I forgot it is also a Simply Organic Lasting Over, but it’s easy to forget it by vaping it.

I have now reached my first decade of vaping and I can guarantee that the pleasure of being able to refill my atomizer for dozens of times with a Kentucky tobacco far exceeds the desire to be able to fully enjoy all the notes of a classic extract but only for a few milliliters. Meditate people…

Suggested dilution: 33%

Steeping time: ready to vape, recommended 2-3 days

The Flavourist voto 4

Pro: A really good Kentucky fire cured per pod or for anyone who doesn’t want to regenerate frequently

Cons: To be a strong and smoky tobacco it is a pinch too sweet

White English Mixture – Review

INTRODUCTION

Today I return to talk about the Extreme 4 Pod Line by La Tabaccheria, already awarded as the 2020 best tobacco line in the “For Pod Tobacco E-liquids” category, is enriched with seven new flavors to confirm its leadership in the field of tobacco extracts for non-rebuildable systems. and therefore to maintain the scepter won last year in the Vape Italian Tobacco Awards by The Flavourist team.

For those who are not aware, we report what the manufacturer itself says about this line: “The Extreme 4Pod Line was born, as mentioned, taking our selective purification technique to the extreme, so we consider it to be a SPIN-OFF of the mother line, the Organic 4Pod Line. The Extreme 4Pod Line somewhat overturns the balance, creating a tobacco flavour which tends to intensify and emphasize some of the main attributes of that specific tobacco, while positively twisting others, for example a Latakia turns out to be sweetish, soft, incense-flavoured and suitable for everyone.

Wondering what to expect from the Extreme 4Pod Line? Each of these products is characterized by the typical perfumes of the authentic tobacco of reference, whereas when vaping them they turn out to be really smooth and velvety, losing every “hard-edged” nuance of taste and becoming the perfect products for those who love the taste of tobacco and are willing to use it with entry-level system (but non only!), going beyond the – already incredible – duration values of the Organic 4Pod line.”

With the arrival of the new Extreme 4 Pod aromas, this line by La Tabaccheria currently has a total of 19 aromas!

WHITE ENGLISH MIXTURE DESCRIPTION

The aroma that I will review for you today is the White English Mixture that the manufacturer describes as follows:

Our White English Mixture from the Extreme 4Pod Line is the ideal product for those who want an extremely clean version of our classic blend of tobacco extracts, perfect for non-rebuildable systems and pod mods.

The White English Mixture is in fact completely transparent, and this will guarantee to make your coils last even more than with our Organic 4Pod Line.

La Tabaccheria Orlando D'Alessandro

SMELL TEST

Before starting as usual with the olfactory analysis of the product, I want to focus briefly on the concept of English Mixture and its origins. The English blends were born in the United Kingdom as a direct consequence of the Tobacco Purity Laws which up to 1986 sanctioned the ban on the use of aromatic additives or external flavoring agents in tobacco blends.

So while all over the world many companies were producing tobacco (pipe) flavored with vanilla, rum, cherries and so on, in the United Kingdom the tobacco companies began to create a pipe blend using tobaccos able to provide the highest possible aromatic contribution, as for example the Latakia tobacco and the Perique which were added in more or less accentuated percentages to the traditional Virginia and Oriental. These historical facts led to the definition of English Blend as a mixture of pipe tobacco containing Virginia, Oriental, Latakia and Perique tobacco.

On the smell, the White English Mixture duly prepared and ready to be vaped shortly, shows all the swagger of Latakia tobacco that dominates the scene hiding the other tobaccos in the blend, and which outlines the type of liquid and vape that awaits me. An english blend by definition belongs to the category of the so-called strong and dark tobacco blends, both as regards the vape and as regards the world of the pipe. And in the vape precisely an English mixture proposes with incredible fidelity all or almost all the sensory experiences related to the world of the analog pipe.

Devices: Vaporesso Luxe PM40 GTX coil 1.20 ohm + BD Vape Precisio MTL RTA 1.00 ohm (Kanthal A1 28 AWG) with Fiber N’ Cotton.

    vaporesso luxe pm40 pod mod    BD Vape Precisio RTA MTL

For the vape test I decided to use a non-regenerable system in my opinion very valid, the Luxe PM40 by Vaporesso and a simple rebuildable atomizer but with excellent performance, the Precisio by BD Vape.

On vape, White English Mixture is a very structured blend in which Latakia plays the role of the leading actor, but optimally flanked by a cast of exceptional skill. As a film lover, I often like to use the terminology of the seventh art world and imagine the tobaccos in a blend as the set of all the actors hired to shoot the scenes of a Hollywood film.

In the White English Mixture, if Latakia is undoubtedly the main star of the whole opera, always at the forefront and easily recognizable for its important stage presence, oriental tobaccos and Virginia play a fundamental supporting role, able to guarantee completeness and complexity to the entire bouquet.

English Mixture origini

The Latakia “pushes” on the scene with its decisive smoky notes and all its woodiness, the Oriental give breath to the whole set and dialogues with Latakia with lively and spicy accents. The Virginia finally enters with sweeter and softer beats, with the intent to curb the excesses of Latakia, and to give the right detachment and balance to each scene ops puff.

Many of you will now ask: is it different from the English Mixture aroma from the “Le miscele barrique” line? How far is it from the original?

It is undeniable that there are differences between the two aromas, all of which can be traced in a clearer perception of the nuances and individual characteristics of the tobaccos in the blend; it is equally true however that, in the impossibility of vaping the two e-liquids at the same time on the same identical system, it will be very difficult to distinguish one from the other. Seeing is believing.

Miscela Englis Blend per pipa

 

WHITE ENGLISH MIXTURE FINAL VERDICT

A complex tobacco bouquet, very structured and with smoky and strong characteristics? Quite simply White English Mixture which in addition has all the practicality of a transparent organic tobacco that basically is absolutely super coil friendly…

White English Mixture is an aroma with priceless qualities. From the brilliant mind of the father of La Tabaccheria, Orlando D’Alessandro, comes another White Extreme for Pod aroma that not only enriches the Roman company’s transparent range, but which probably leads the tobacco e-liquid bar pod to an impassable limit. Do you think he exaggerated?

Judge it for yourself by trying this White English Mixture or even this other NEW AROMA by the Roman company…

Mandingo Reserve Lemon – Review

INTRODUCTION

The Mandingo aroma is considered one of the best aromas ever manufactured by the Emilian company Angolo della Guancia: a Latakia tobacco extract considered by popular acclaim as one of the best organic Latakia ever made. And it is also for this reason that today, with great curiosity, I am going to talk to you about Mandingo Reserve Lemon, an aroma that Angolo della Guancia created in a limited edition of only 300 pieces.

Mandingo Reserve Lemon is a Syrian Latakia (Mandingo) tobacco macerate with the addition of lemon zest during maceration. The product is marketed in the classic shot series format, 20 milliliters of aroma to be added with a 40ml base to obtain 60 milliliters of e-liquid preferably in the VPG 50/50 proportion.

Angolo della Guancia Mandingo Reserve Lemon Edizione Limitata 300 pz

MANDINGO RESERVE LEMON DESCRIPTION

From the official website of Angolo della Guancia I report the description that is provided for Mandingo Reserve Lemon:

Syrian LATAKIA extracted by controlled maceration: aseptic environment, constantly controlled temperature and humidity, UV filters and forced ventilation with activated carbon. A long, very long process. Maceration with lemon zest gave truly remarkable results.

SMELL TEST

The couple of ingredients that make up this e-liquid certainly does not struggle to emerge from the first pressure of the bottle during my smell test; a combination of smoky hints of latakia tobacco and penetrating lemon tips appear on my nose with decision and strength, and suggest a vape with strong and at the same time lively tones.

The Latakia-lemon combination is no longer a novelty in the field of tobacco flavored, a combination only a few years ago considered very reckless, and which instead proved to be very intriguing and more successful than ever. Latakia and lemon give a brave and very tasty vaping experience.

Latakia tabacco sacco

As I said earlier, both lemon and Latakia smell their way and come directly inside my nostrils, with the sour notes of lemon slightly more in the foreground and the smoky robustness of Latakia immediately following. I am ready for the vape test!

VAPE TEST

Devices: BD Vape Precisio MTL RTA 1.00 ohm (Kanthal A1 28 AWG) + Svoëmesto Kayfun Lite 2019 RTA 24 mm single coil 0.9 ohm (Kanthal A1 28 AWG) with Cotton Bacon Prime

BD Vape Precisio RTA MTL   Kayfun Lite 2019 diametro 24 mm

For the review of Mandingo Reserve Lemon I used the Precisio MTL RTA by BD Vape and the Kayfun Lite 2019 in the 24 mm version by Svoëmesto.

In inspiration, exactly as tested during the smell test, it is the lemon that opens the dance with great incisiveness and “scenic” presence, ops aromatic presence; the lemon zest used throughout the maceration process has penetrated deeply into the thinnest veins of the Latakia leaves, leaving its indelible mark within the extracted aroma. The puff is lively and stimulating with the clear and dominant notes of citric acid that guide the vape and at the same time lead the way to the arrival of latakia.

Tabacco Latakia fire cured foglie

And the absolute king of all tobaccos, the Syrian Latakia, is not long in coming, leaning with naturalness on the bold hints of lemon. Mandingo Reserve Lemon is a storm of flavors, lemon the lightning that rips and illuminates the sky, Latakia the mighty thunder that gives its extreme strength. The smoky notes and deeply spicy nuances of Latakia envelop the palate in the heart of the puff, a dark tobacco frame that shines and is enhanced thanks to the intense vivacity of the lemon.

The charge and aromatic quality of Mandingo Reserve Lemon is to be commended in every respect, as well as its post-vaping aromatic persistence, well present but never over the top. Careful selection of raw materials and meticulous extraction work, this is the great merit of Angolo della Guancia.

Limone con scorza

MANDINGO RESERVE LEMON FINAL VERDICT

Mandingo Reserve Lemon, while not representing an absolute novelty in the field of flavored tobacco extracts, is undoubtedly a great quality aroma and capable of guaranteeing a truly valuable vaping experience. A tasteful vape for lovers of tobacco extracts enriched by the freshness of lemon, able to give to the darkest of tobaccos an unusual and intriguing summer dress.

So how about discovering the qualities of THIS OTHER SYRIAN LATAKIA AROMA BY ANGOLO DELLA GUANCIA?

Suggested dilution: 33%

Steeping time: recommended 10-15 days

Aroma Harmonium etichetta

WHITE HARMONIUM DESCRIPTION

The first of the new Extreme 4 Pod aromas that I will pass under my magnifying glass, is the White Harmonium aroma, an aroma that I know very well in its classic version and that never fails in my extensive arsenal of tobacco extracts. From the official website of La Tabaccheria I report the White Harmonium description:

A fire-cured symphony with hazelnut, coconut and barrique hints, now in White version!

Our White Harmonium from the Extreme 4Pod Line is the ideal product for those who want an extremely clean version of our mixture of aromatized tobacco extracts, perfect for non-rebuildable systems and pod mods.

White Harmonium Aroma La Tabaccheria boccetta

SMELL TEST

From an olfactory point of view, the difference between the Harmonium classic version and the White Harmonium is substantial, there is no doubt. In the classic version aroma (belonging to the Special Blend line), the brown and dark hints of Latakia tobacco and hazelnut stand out in a peremptory way, in a very structured and particularly woody frame. The nasal test of the White Harmonium instead reveals a decidedly softer and more delicate aroma, with a first aromatic line almost exclusively Latakia. The same Latakia, unlike the Latakia of the Harmonium Special Blend, is perceived, just as declared by the producer, more lovable and less angular, with a light nutty breath that surrounds it reaching the nose only in second place.

The smell test of White Harmonium has decreed the greater harmony of this aroma compared to its parent and therefore, without further delay I prepare myself for the vape test.

    vaporesso luxe pm40 pod mod    BD Vape Precisio RTA MTL

For the vape test I decided to use a non-regenerable system in my opinion very valid, the Luxe PM40 by Vaporesso and a simple rebuildable atomizer but with excellent performance, the Precisio by BD Vape.

On vape White Harmonium is presented from the first puff as a sweet, pleasant liquid and truly within everyone’s reach. The strength and angular features of the Harmonium Special Blend have been admirably filed to package a product that, without ever losing the organoleptic characteristics of the parent aroma, was able to give a satisfying aromatic experience from all points of view. But there is more …

Oh yes, because already from the inspiration, my senses clearly grasp the pleasant hints of coconut, that coconut that in the classic version of the aroma had paid the price to the detriment of the more “overbearing” Latakia, hazelnut and wood. In the White Harmonium the coconut nuances are elegantly freed from the cumbersome presence of the main players in the blend and play an important role in enriching and completing the entire blend.

White Armonium is a structured and complete aroma, rich and intriguing, and it proves it in the heart of the puff when a docile and incensed Latakia, together with a buttery and toasted hazelnut join the initial insertions of the tropical fruit.

Nocciole in sacco di iuta

An ensemble of ingredients, an amalgam of always vivid and never messed up notes; an unusually round Latakia but at the same time rich in incense, an enveloping and at times bewitching hazelnut, and those coconut glazes that after the initial inspirations, resurface in the tail and in the very pleasant and never boundless aromatic persistence after vaping.

The emblematic trademark of White Harmonium is the balance of its aromatic nuances, which always reach the palate with good intensity and masterful harmony. Symphonic and graceful and above all more complete than ever, even more than the Harmonium Special Blend.

Cocco e polpa

WHITE HARMONIUM FINAL VERDICT

As just highlighted, White Harmonium is a complete, clean and more satisfying flavored organic tobacco than ever. The most experienced vapers who know the creations by La Tabaccheria well, and are well aware of the aromatic imprinting that are able to give all the products from this company, in approaching the White Harmonium aroma, will not fail to notice some evident differences between the two versions of the same aroma; but I am also convinced that at the same time, they will appreciate the amiable taste of Harmonium Extreme 4 Pod and its ability to delicately seduce the taste buds puff after puff.

Those who, on the other hand, will try White Harmonium for the first time and without knowing the characteristics of the classic aroma, will find themselves in front of a simply amazing flavored tobacco for richness of taste, for the ability to never become cloying and for being an absolute coil-friendly e-liquid.

And probably they will not be able to refrain from trying ANOTHER OF THE MOST FAMOUS AROMAS by the italian company…

Primo K Flavour Company – Review

INTRODUCTION

A few months ago we learned about the Italian brand K Flavour Company, specialized in the creation of synthetic tobacco aromas and e-liquids that have received many appreciations in Italy. The K Flavour Company aromas are able to combine bold and rather complex recipes with the tobacco element, without wanting at all costs to emulate or imitate an organic tobacco product.

So today let’s talk again about the “I Dieci” line by K Flavour Company, of which we have already reviewed the Quarto and Secondo aromas.

Primo K Flavour Company Aroma boccetta con descrizione

We remind you that all the aromas of this line are sold in 10ml amber glass bottles and are to be diluted to 20%. Before focusing on our aroma, we cannot fail to highlight the beauty, elegance and care of the packaging of the products of this line. Sincere congratulations!

PRIMO K FLAVOUR COMPANY – DESCRIPTION

The Primo K Flavor Company aroma is described as follows on the manufacturer’s website:

Tobacco, coconut, bourbon cream, brown sugar.

SMELL TEST

On the smell, the aroma Primo shows a clear and intense alcoholic note, almost liqueur I would say, which tends to dominate the scene a little, aromatically overwhelming all the other elements of the blend. It takes a few minutes for the nostrils to get used to the alcoholic impact, and are able to trace an intriguing coconut glaze and light vanilla hints, which however come out with difficulty from the alcoholic “fumes” of the bottle.

Without delay I prepare myself for the vape test and for the tasting of what promises to be most likely a tobacco recipe with a typically summer aromatic stamp. Will it really be like this?

Crema al Bourbon marca Buffalo Trace Distillery

VAPE TEST

Devices: Quawins Vstick Pro + Kizoku Techmod con Limit MTL RTA single coil (Kanthal A1 28 AWG) with Cotton Bacon Prime

For the review of this aroma, I decided to rely on two very different systems: the Vstick Pro pod mod and the Kizoku kit with Techmod box and Limit atomizer.

  Vstick Pro sigaretta elettronica con filtro     Kizoku Techmod 80 watt e Limit MTL RTA Kit

On vape the incisiveness of the alcoholic element perceived during the smell test, it is attenuated and balanced within a bouquet on the contrary very balanced, even if as already seen in the previous products of this line, always much more oriented towards the flavoring component than the tobacco one. The Primo K Flavor Company aroma from this point of view does not differ from the previous reviewed aromas of this line, and presents the tobacco ingredient in a way that is always perhaps a little (too) marginal.

Noce di cocco aperta

From the inhalation phase, the puff appears very aromatic and enveloping, with a fine note of coconut that actually gives the aroma a typically summer address, even in the absence of those freshness tips typical for all e-liquids created for the summer. The coconut and immediately following the perception of pleasant notes of vanilla liqueur, give me the feeling of being struggling with a coconut-based alcoholic drink, perhaps not really a cocktail (the “ice” element is missing as I said), but something more like some kind of flavored rum.

Tabacco biondo

The bouquet of Primo K Flavor Company enjoys a truly enviable roundness, it is sweet but not too much, and on the palate it is quite sweet. I do not hide the fact that I have a hard time finding both the tobacco ingredient and the cane sugar within the aromatic score of this recipe; I have no doubts that they really exist, indeed I am sure of their presence, and I imagine them to support and complete a very bold and courageous blend.

Tobacco binds well to the coconut and while not perceiving it clearly, it gives an extra pinch of woodiness to the tropical fruit; in the same way the cane sugar makes the flavor of the bourbon cream more lively and savory, softening the sweeter and potentially cloying note.

Zucchero di canna grezzo

The aromatic balance of Primo K Flavor is impeccable, the recipe is refined and quite unusual and not tired at all, but honestly I would have tried to dare more with the tobacco element making it more easily recognizable.

PRIMO K FLAVOUR COMPANY – FINAL VERDICT

Primo K Flavor Company confirms the sensations and perceptions already traced in the previous reviewed aromas of the “I Dieci” line of the Campania manufacturer; it is certainly a pleasant and tasty product but, exactly as in the case of the Secondo and Quarto aromas, here too the tobacco ingredient is in my humble opinion too muted. Tobacco is certainly not the main ingredient of this aromatic composition. Roundness of taste and undisputed aromatic qualities but very little tobacco hints.

If you think you might like this aroma from K Flavor Company, then I think you should seriously consider THIS AROMA so interesting and very aromatic.
