Speaking of Milan, a famous slogan from the 1980s read: “It is reborn every morning, it beats like a heart; Milan is positive, optimistic, efficient; Milan is to live, dream and enjoy …, Milan to drink”. Milan, the nerve center of Italy that accepts the challenges imposed by the times and that, despite a thousand difficulties, wins them. Even in vaping, Milan is the symbol of an Italy that for a decade has wanted to look forward to the future, understanding and accepting the potential of a new, modern and above all much less harmful sector than analogue smoking.

The Milan to drink of the 80s is now also the Milan to vape.

Blendfeel, a Lombard e-liquid manufacturing company, as well as a flagship among manufacturers in the Po Valley and throughout Italy, wanted to dedicate a tobacco flavored concentrated aroma with the same name of the city of Milan. Aroma Milano belongs to the “Aroma di Tabacco Selection” line (Irish Black, Pays, Double Spicy, US Rose) and is sold in a 10 ml amber glass bottle to be mixed at 10% in a recommended base 40 PG/50 VG/10 H2O or in a 50/50 base.

Milano Blendfeel

Blendfeel officially describes its Milano aroma as follows:

Torniamo in patria, nella Milano che corre ma che riesce a fermarsi per gustarsi la vita. Perche´non assaporare il gusto di un amaro agrumato che inebria una miscela di tabacco americano? Ecco Milano un altro connubio aromatico particolare e sfizioso impossibile da non assaporare.

Let’s go back to our homeland, to the Milan that runs but manages to stop and enjoy life. Why not savor the taste of a citrusy bitter that elates a blend of American tobacco? Here is Milano, another particular and delicious aromatic combination impossible not to taste.

PROVA OLFATTIVA

Milano tobacco aroma presents itself on the smell with an intense but at the same time delicious scented note of citrus fruits among which the hints of orange undoubtedly stand out. Just the orange, sweet and lively, stands as the absolute protagonist of the test, dominating the olfactory scene far and wide and consequently relegating the tobacco component of this creation to a very marginal role. Throughout the course of the nasal test, the tobacco mixture mentioned in the description struggles to emerge except through a faint vegetal background nuance. I immediately go to the vape test to better understand the characteristics of this Blendfeel aroma.

expromizer v3 fire   flash e vapor v45s

For the vape test I will again rely on a pair of German atomizers with different characteristics, but precisely for this reason able to enhance the Milano aroma characteristics. I will be using ExVape Expromizer V3 Fire and version 4.5 S of the Flash e-Vapor.

PROVA DI SVAPO

The good olfactory perceptions are amplified in the vape test, indeed to be honest they are improved as in vape they open, better enhancing some facets remained hidden during the nasal test. From the first puff, Milano offers a tasty and pleasant and above all sparkling vape experience! Yes, you got it sparkling, precisely because on the palate you perceive a light sparkling note that, joining with bitter-sweet nuances, surprises and fascinates me, making me immediately think of the pleasant experience of sipping a prosecco.

There is no doubt that in creating this aroma, Blendfeel has thought of paying homage to the economic capital of Italy, with one of its most recognized and irrefutable distinctive elements: the aperitif. And Milano by Blendfeel from the first sip, oops excuse me, from the first puff, remember no ifs and buts, a sparkling spritz garnished with a nice slice of orange.

Spritz agrumi

And what about tobacco? Although this e-liquid is in my opinion slightly (and I add deliberately) unbalanced towards the flavoring component, it is not difficult during the vape to identify the delicate tobacco background finishes. They emerge already during the inhalation, but become more vivid and present in the heart and at the end of the puff, and are placed side by side with skill and elegance with the bitter, sweet and sparkling notes of the cocktail. They are mainly vegetable and soft tobacco hints, typical of light tobacco leaves and, even with the help of the manufacturer’s own description, I deduce it may be a blend of Virginia and Burley tobaccos.

virginia american blend

Virginia and Burley compose a sort of American blend (even without the presence of the Oriental) which in the economy of this aroma does not play a mere scenographic role but on the contrary contributes to slightly thicken the bouquet giving it greater body and aromatic consistency. The most experienced will notice it for sure but even if it were not so, never mind, because what always counts, is the final result that in the case of Milano is certainly commendable.

The aroma just for how it was built, for its aromatic range so sunny and wide, lends itself well to being vaped not only in MTL but also in flavor chasing, and I assure you that it does not disappoint at all, because with greater airiness it manages to give greater breath and exaltation to its already prominent flavoring components.

Milan to drink, Milano to vape, Milano that puts a good mood.

I have the feeling that in Italy the extracts tobacco market is in a great phase, and that much of the merit of this success, unexpected until at least some time ago, have to be attributed primarily to the increasing appreciation by the public of flavored tobacco e-juices, and secondly to the fact that this e-liquid category is becoming more and more user friendly.

Among the many Italian manufacturers specialized in the production of real tobacco extracts, Blendfeel is certainly one of the most proactive brands at the moment, always ready to satisfy the needs of tobacco lovers. Today I am going to test the Wiener aroma, a new flavored tobacco from the big line “Aroma di Tabacco – Special Blends” by the manufacturer, which is also awarded at the Italian Vape E-liquid Award by The Flavourist, for two consecutive years (2018 and 2019) as the best extracted tobacco line.

Directly from the Blendfeel website, I report the official description of the Wiener aroma:

Una divagazione estrosa del black cavendish, quello che con tanta fatica siamo riusciti ad importare direttamente dagli Stati Uniti, impreziosito dal cacao e dal cioccolato e da una sfumatura di albicocca. Un aroma evocativo degli sfarzi culinari della grande Vienna nella quale la tradizione non ha mai deluso chi ha avuto fortuna di avvicinarsi.

A whimsical digression of black cavendish, the one that with so much effort we managed to import directly from the United States, embellished with cocoa and chocolate and an apricot nuance. An evocative aroma from the culinary splendor of the great Vienna in which tradition has never disappointed those who have had the good fortune to approach.

Wiener is a 10 ml concentrated aroma to be mixed at 10% in a recommended base 40 PG/50 VG/10 H2O or in a base VPG 50/50.

Blendfeel Wiener02

SMELL TEST

The smell test that anticipates the important vape test as usual, shows me an e-liquid with a remarkable aromatic impact in which a soft and sweet apricot scent stands out clearly, accentuated by a consistent and persistent fat note. The sweet and full tone conferred by the apricot and most likely by the presence of the butter, absolutely manages the smell test and prevents my nose from intercepting other aromatic components of the mix, if not perhaps some faint traces of cocoa.

For the vape test I decided to use the eclectic and versatile Limit MTL RTA by Kizoku, for the occasion built with a 1.0 ohm coil of Kanthal A1 27 awg.

KIZOKU Limit MTL RTA colors

VAPE TEST

On vape, the deeply creamy and fat character felt on the nose remains dominant, even if the bouquet manages to show more nuances than the nasal test. Immediately on inspiration the puff appears full-bodied and round, revealing a markedly sweet tone. The aromatic notes are the same perceived on the nose and highlight all the greediness of a real apricot jam, supported by an equally evident buttery scent. In these initial lines, the vape is dense and fat and sincerely I perceive not so much tobacco stamps, although it should not be forgotten that the black cavendish tobacco, used for this recipe, is notoriously little inclined to manifest its pure tobacco nature, but on the contrary it is perfect as a harmonizer inside “creamy flavored” tobacco recipes.

Sacher torta

The creamy imprinting tends to weaken in the central phases of the puff because a hint of dusted bitter cocoa appears to bring the vape back to slightly more linear and dry tones. The sweetness is now tenaciously contrasted by the cocoa powder, which in some way tries to facilitate, succeeding in part, the entry of the black cavendish, to give a greater perception of tobacco. If on the one hand the black cavendish has the undoubted merit of being able to give Wiener an incredible aromatic balance between all the ingredients of the mix, on the other its vegetable nature remains strongly subdued and difficult to identify.

confettura di albicocche

It is true however that as it is structured, the bouquet has clear aromatic assonances with the most famous Viennese cake in the world, while maintaining a certain distance from it, as I am sure that in the intentions of the manufacturer, there was never the idea to fully emulate a real Sachertorte. It is no coincidence that the Blendfeel’s e-liquid is devoid of any reference that may recall to the sponge cake.

Black Cavendish

The dense and sugary curve of Wiener which has its maximum peak in inspiration, tends to fade during the vaping and does it further in the tail notes during the exhalation, when the e-liquid shows for the first time its timid tobacco identity, revealing a vaguely delicate and perfumed vegetable scent.

The composition in all its situations is always very harmonious, sweet but not cloying but it must be said that, in all likelihood, a good portion of fans of tobacco extracted, will find it very difficult, like myself, to label it or even simply consider it a true tobacco flavored.

Recommended dilution: 10%

Pro: A full and aromatic creamy recipe with light tobacco hints.

Christmas Tea (Blendfeel)

Christmas Tea (Blendfeel)

blendfeel newlogo

Name and Format: Christmas Tea (Blendfeel) – Concentrated flavour 20 ml – received by the manufacturer

Batch: 46000010001

Nico: 2,5 mg/ml

Declared Base: 50 PG / 50 VG

Expiry date: 11/05/2021

Devices: Vaporesso Swag II 80 W + Vapefly Brunhilde MTL RTA single coil 1.2 ohm (Nichrome 80 28 AWG) with Cotton Bacon Prime.


In the nineteenth century during the reign of Queen Victoria, in the United Kingdom aristocratic salons began to spread a worldly appointment that would become a historic tradition for the whole Anglo-Saxon world: the tea party. The maternity of the tea party, a small meal with sweet and savory dishes accompanied by a cup of tea to be taken strictly between 16 and 18 o’clock, is undoubtedly attributed to the Duchess of Bedford, and it is precisely in this context that around 1840, at Christmas time, Christmas tea was born, a tea flavored with different spices and ingredients which, thanks to their aromatic quality (for example ginger and cinnamon), gave a pleasant sensation of warmth.

In 2019 Renzo Cattaneo, founding father of Blendfeel, brings the British tradition of Christmas tea to the vaping world and creates Christmas Tea e-juice:

Christmas Tea richiama i gusti dei dolci natalizi della tradizione inglese. Spezie ed agrumi nei quali spuntano il mandarino, la frutta secca ed i richiami lievi alla cannella. Ecco che un’estrazione di questo blend segreto di tè pregiati ed arricchiti, viene ad essere reinterpretato con una chiave di lettura inconsueta, nel quale un inserto di Burley, sottovoce, ne completa lo spartito aromatico.

Christmas Tea recalls the tastes of Christmas cakes in the English tradition. Spices and citrus fruits with mandarin, dried fruit and light cinnamon notes. Here is an extraction of this secret blend of precious and enriched teas, to be reinterpreted with an unusual interpretation, in which a whispering Burley insert completes the aromatic score.

Christmas Tea by Blendfeel is a 20 ml shot aroma in a 60 ml bottle. A base of 40 ml will be added to the aroma to obtain the e-liquid ready to be vaped (eventually with the presence of nicotine). The manufacturer suggests a final VPG 50/50 composition.

Blendfeel Christmas tea

SMELL TEST

On the smell test the aromatic score is directed with austere elegance by vivid citrus scents that seem to enhance the scent of tea, not at all stunned by the energy of citrus fruits. From the background it’s possible to catch light spicy insertions accompanied by a vaguely sweet base. Only after numerous and repeated pressures on the bottle, I identify a sort of almond component that recalls with good approximation the scent of “amaretto” biscuit. Christmas Tea shows without fear all its aromatic complexity, which extends towards the end of my smell test up to a timid tobacco stamp, accompanied by infinitesimal cinnamon tips. Evidently the large number of nuances that make up this e-liquid, from the most accentuated to the most subdued, does not scare Blendfeel at all, sure of being able to direct them in vaping with the class and mastery typical of a great orchestra director.

Vapefly Brunhilde mtl rta

So breathed to the trumpets and we begin to “listen” to the Christmas Tea Concert conducted by the Blendfeel director. For the vaporization test, to stay on the subject of the Anglo-Saxon world, I chose the aromatic qualities of Brunhilde MTL RTA by Vapefly.

VAPE TEST

In vaping there are e-liquids that remain hidden to the nostrils to reveal themselves only in vaporization and then, there are liquids that in good or bad times are an open book since the smelltest. If it was not understood, Christmas Tea belongs to this last category.

Christmas Tea is not surprising in vaping, it charms. From the first puff an uncontrollable thrill of pleasure comes over me, because I realize that the concept of banality has been banned in this bouquet. But yet here there aren’t unpublished orchestral “instruments” … It is the way to play them and to harmonize them that makes the difference …

tea party02

In the opening bars the puff is brilliant and the citrus notes punctuate a lively, colorful and festive rhythm. The energetic and penetrating tones of mandarin introduce on the scene the primary component of this e-liquid, the tea; I savor all its rich and full-bodied structure, managing to catch many similarities with Keemun black tea already used by the producer in his Byzantium aroma. Refined, warm and spicy, with hints of shrubs and unexpected roundness.

After three or four puffs I have the confirmation that Christmas Tea is a true arthouse e-juice, it mainly addresses the sophisticated palates of the most demanding slow vapers.

christmas tea blend

I sit in the living room, the soft lights of late afternoon contribute to creating the right atmosphere, I start to vape slowly, again to “grasp” the sinuous shades that the bouquet shows in the heart of the puff.

In the heart of puff, glisten sweet glazes of gingerbread, along with the deep and spicy notes of black tea; the composition is harmonious and the director Blendfeel escapes the easy temptation to exalt the sound cues of cinnamon, which instead remain only whispered inside a meticulously constructed score to exalt a wider aromatic range, made of a thousand scents and one more more, without anyone too dominant.

christmas tea holiday

And in this whirlwind of flavors, the profoundly Christmas atmosphere of Christmas Tea emerges, a bit like the one that can infuse Dutch-German “spekulatius” biscuits or Scandinavian “pepparkakor” biscuits, spicy gingerbread biscuits rich in aromas of honey, ginger, cloves and many other spices, unmistakable symbols of Christmas.

At the tail of the puff, I catch a thin tobacco carpet with clean and linear tones, which holds together all the ingredients of this recipe so articulated and multifaceted. The perfect link between tea and its spices.

Blendfeel plays the ninth, a true Christmas symphony for sensitive and refined palates.

The coldest months of the year are the best to taste and thick and creamy e-liquids, no doubt, but sometime also in these days it’s a good and stimulating idea to try fruity liquid, it can be an excellent solution for our taste buds, a valid autumn intermezzo between a creamy e-juice and the next. For this reason today we decided to tell you about a fruity e-liquid, bringing on the table one of the latest creations of the Decima E-Liquid company: Orion.

We have already widely spoken about Decima on our blog; a Sicilian manufacturer specializing in high quality premium liquids and the innate sense of naturalness that they are able to convey. Not tentatively, this company was awarded several times at International Vape E-liquid Award by The Flavourist.

Also Orion is an e-liquid from the Galactic Steam Series line of which we have already reviewed Abduction (Best 2018 Italian Fruity E-juice), Final Space, The Visit and Space Invasion. Galactic Steam Series is a line of fruity and fresh aromatic shots suitable for the summer season (easy unicorn 60 ml bottles containing 20 ml of glycolic aroma). Exuberant to the senses of taste and smell lemon and mandarin restore the integrity of the flavor-aroma of the fruit from which they derive. Balanced and delicate mix of exotic and halogen fruits complete the series.

Decima Orion

Orion is thus described on the official website of the manufacturer:

Le note dolci dell’arancia e dell’albicocca fanno da contraltare a quelle lievemente amare ed acidule del tamarindo, aroma intenso e voluttuoso con note rotonde ed eleganti. Gusto non convenzionale, la svapata ha sentore carnoso e passionale che esalta le papille gustative.

The sweet notes of orange and apricot are the counterpart to the slightly bitter and acidulous notes of tamarind, an intense and voluptuous aroma with round and elegant notes. Unconventional taste, the puff has a fleshy and passionate scent that enhances the taste buds.

The manufacturer description strikes me because, among the elements of the recipe is mentioned the tamarind, a tropical fruit originating from East Africa and India, but now widely distributed throughout South America and also in tropical Asian areas. Never before had I come across an e-liquid with the presence of tamarind; and therefore the tasting promises to be very interesting …

arancia rossa

SMELL TEST

I begin the usual smell test by combining my nostrils with the bottle, and immediately I perceive a very pleasant blend of sweet and delicate aromas with others that are more energetic and bitter. Precisely in these last ones, I recognize a clear citrus fruit matrix, which penetrates my nostrils with a certain incisiveness, while I cannot trace clear notes that can be distinguished within the softer and rounder hints of the entire score. I still get the aromatic fusion that comes out of this elegant weave.

Will they be aware of the excellent olfactory premisses to be perfectly reflected even in the vape test?

The atomizer chosen for this test is once again the surprising and perhaps slightly underestimated Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite, a rebuildable 23 mm atomizer able to express itself at best with different types of e-liquids expecially in flavor chasing vape.

Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite

VAPE TEST

On Vape Orion is immediately presented as a new recipe to be discovered. From the first puff I perceive aromatic flavors and timbres that I had never before been fortunate to perceive. It is evident that behind these new and stimulating aromatic perceptions there is the tamarind hand, and for someone like me who had never come across this fruit directly, it is a truly surprising discovery!

In inspiration a mix of sweet-acidulous nuances makes its way with extreme refinement, slowly settling on an impertinent citrus fruit background. The puff is lively, ample, stimulating, astute.

albicocche

As mentioned for smell test even at vaping, it is not easy to identify all the aromatic elements that fill every single puff, but not because the bouquet is confused and messy indeed, I think more because the tamarind is actually a fruit unknown to the most of people. So if in the citrusy background it is easy to be able to distinguish all the characteristics of a delicate and never too sour orange, I can only guess that behind the acrobatic twirling, spicy and with thin acidulous tips, hides the pulp of the tamarind pods.

The sensory experience is very bright, rich and varied, and even in the heart of the vape I notice a consolidation of initial perceptions, perhaps with a greater presence of sweet components, almost endowed with unusual creamy shades.

Tamarindo frutto

The puff at this stage seems more full-bodied and more intense, and gives on the taste buds a soft mix of polyhedral flavors, which gently fluctuate from lively hints of hibiscus flowers to more shady notes of wild musk. In the tail and in the discreet post-vape aromatic persistence, the orange aroma is reaffirmed with new vital lymph, supported in my opinion by very slight shades of lychee; the whole is enhanced by an almost imperceptible ice touch that leaves the palate with a very pleasant coolness sensation at the end of the puff.

With Orion the Decima boys showed great courage mastering with wisdom a recipe far from trivial, based on the great novelty of the tamarind fruit. The result is an elegant fruity mix with exotic tones and an amazing swing of shades. Well done!

Today we conclude our series of reviews about the surprising Romanian brand Guerrilla Flavors, much appreciated both by our readers and by the whole Italian vape market. The Romanian brand also received a well-deserved award at the International Vape E-liquid Award 2018, with Red Flag e-liquid awarded as “Best Creamy E-juice”.

Our story on Guerrilla Flavors products therefore ends today with the fruity liquid S.E.A.L., as described by the manufacturer:

Sweet Mango, Honeydew with a touch of Blood Orange and strong Ice

I am going to discover S.E.A.L. with the usual smell test and I immediately open the product bottle, a classic chubby gorilla with a rather aggressive and military design, but we know they are the Guerrilla Flavors company!

This e-juice is in the mix&vape format, 50 ml to which you have to add 10 ml of base (if you desire with nicotine), a format that the manufacturer calls short-fill.

Guerrilla Flavors SEAL

SMELL TEST

On the smell S.E.A.L. immediately presents itself with a fairly marked aromatic imprint and shows at the forefront a clear fragrance of honeydew melon, which gives to the e-liquid the sensation of being in front of a mix with rather sweet connotations. In fact I feel that the sweet characteristics of the melon have been reinforced with external sweetening elements (most likely sucralose). These aromatic cues can’t make me recognize the presence of mango (cited in the description), they are struggling to emerge at the olfactory examination, while on the contrary I can easily distinguish a citrusy subtrack that would seem at least in part to compensate the sweet excesses of melon and sucralose .

I prepare myself for the vaping test, without hiding that the smell test left me with some doubts: I fear that even on vape the charge of the melon could be too invasive and that there may be some aromatic imbalance in the recipe. We’ll see.

The atomizer chosen for this test is once again the surprising and perhaps slightly underestimated Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite, a rebuildable 23 mm atomizer able to express itself at best with different types of e-liquids expecially in flavor chasing vape.

Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite

VAPE TEST

Despite the overwhelming first impact due to an abundant ice effect, on vape S.E.A.L. manages to express itself much better than in the smell test, presenting a bouquet that is certainly more multi-faceted and certainly less sweet. It strikes positively during the inspiration a similar exotic-spicy sensation, which is transmitted quickly on the palate, making the vape so tasty and intriguing.

An aromatic score far from trivial, on the contrary subtle and complex, such as to require a very meticulous analysis.

mango e1570660318946

On the head notes, light scents of mango bring me inside a lively exotic setting, enriched with spicy nuances that are difficult to identify. The strong sugary sensation felt on the smell test, in this inhalation phase is decidedly attenuated, and makes the puff lively and never tiring.

The main ingredient of this recipe, the honeydew melon, enters in the heart of the puff: fresh, ripe and very faithful to the real fruit, the honeydew taste gives roundness and sweetness to the boquet, making it on the one hand more tasty and palatable, but on the other hand reducing a bit the nuances of the mix.

honeydew melon with melon juice

I note with pleasure, puff after puff, that the aromatic balance is good and the imbalance revealed during the smell test, fortunately now it is only a memory. Not only that, S.E.A.L. turns out to be an e-liquid capable of showing itself well shaded and never kneaded and confused; moreover, it’s appreciable the degree of naturalness that this product is able to transmit, despite the fact that it is a product of an undoubtedly “synthetic” nature.

arancia rossa

In the final part of the puff, tasty and “juicy” hints of citrus are timidly facing on the palate and at the same time, the incisiveness of the initial ice effect is firmly reaffirmed. The citrusy component of the red orange happily approaches the other ingredients of the SEAL mix, but I regret the fact that, and this in my opinion is the biggest flaw of this creation, the Romanian manufacturer was anything but generous with the dosage of blood orange, when instead its unexceptionable aromatic qualities, if better emphasized, would have exalted even more the complexity and the value of this recipe.

Pro: Very balanced fruity recipe with facets and precious rich ingredients.

So here we are ready to tell you about the e-liquid Sweetwater Grape & White Peach from by the manufacturer Volume II line, sold in the Mix&Vape format (50 ml with zero nicotine in a 60 ml bottle).

Ohm Boy describes officially Sweetwater Grape & White Peach:

Sun-kissed Grapes fresh from the vine, perfectly balanced with White Peach for a delicate, sweet fruit sensation.

Ohm Boy Sweetwater Grape White Peach

SMELL TEST

The smell test shows a discreet alcoholic background, which carries out a fragrance based on grape aroma of a clear American mold. I refer to the typical “grape” aroma that we encountered in many other liquids we reviewed, very far from the grape flavor we are used to have in Italy or France, but which in the e-liquids world enjoys a remarkable palatability, especially in fruity e-juice for summer.

The “grape” scent appears rather penetrating also because it is loaded with a good degree of sweetness, probably thanks to a sucralose reinforcement. It’s an e-liquid with round and, to say the least, cheeky tones, so much to obscure any other possible nuance of the mix. Oh yes, because for example, during the smell test it is impossible for me to perceive any scent that could in any way lead back to the white peach cited in the description. Will this also be in the vape test?

steam crave aromamizer lite rta

For the vape test, I rely myself on the surprising and perhaps slightly underestimated Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite, a rebuildable 23 mm atomizer able to express itself at best with different types of e-liquids and in particular in flavor chasing vape.

VAPE TEST

From the first puffs Sweetwater Grape & White Peach smiles at the taste buds of fruit lovers but not overly sweet tastes. In fact, I know how the olfactory premises have been completely overturned, which on the contrary had allowed us to imagine a very sweet fruity, according to the typical tradition of liquid stars and stripes.

Intense lime notes, pleasant but equally sour, immediately embrace in inspiration a very aromatic mix in which the grape is clearly the master. The lime-grape combination is convincing, with the sour notes of lime mitigated by the grape aroma and its slightly sweetish finishes. The aromatizations can however be associated more with the “candy” world than with real fruits, in a style typically made in the USA. In fact, although it may be proudly mentioned in its official description, there are no traces of the Sweetwater grape or the Chasselas grape, as it is more commonly known, or at least no aromatic memory due to the real Chasselas grape.

uva chasselas

The moderate aromatic load, however, guarantees a sense of good refinement and general enjoyment on the vape, although not completely natural.

After a few minutes break-in, the taste buds quickly become accustomed to the more acidulous insertions and the liquid becomes more amiable and tasty, especially in the central notes of the vape. The “grape” aroma, with a minimum hint of sucralose, intersects with slight floral nuances that only occasionally allow to filter little peach essences. After some puffs I realize that it is precisely the aromatic strength of the grape aroma that has shaped and transformed the delicate notes of the white fruit into mysterious but somewhat fascinating floral trails.

Floral trails that dissolve, however, in exhalation, bringing out with grace and elegance a velvety and intriguing taste of white peach invoked since the smell test.

pesca bianca

The final perception remains however not 100% natural, but it is ennobled precisely by the refined tail notes that make this fruity bouquet absolutely pleasant. Finally, the aromatic load is not excessive, in addition to ensuring a good aromatic post-vaping persistence, it does not completely stun the vaper taste buds. Sweetwater Grape & White Peach has both refined traits and the necessary strength and irreverence to be faced compulsively with long and powerful puffs. Always stable and composed even at high wattages. Good job Ohm Boy!

Pro: Tasty fruity with balanced and not too sweet aromatic tones.
