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.

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.

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 …

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.

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.

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.

Suggested dilution: 10%

Steeping time: ready to vape, suggested 2/3 days

Pro: Very refined and regal, a Christmas tea that would have also adored Queen Victoria …

Cons:

Name e Format: Choko (Dago E-liquids) – concentrated aroma 20 ml – received by the manufacturer

Devices: Vaporesso Gen 220 W + Vapefly Brunhilde MTL RTA single coil 1.2 ohm (Nichrome 80 28 AWG) with Cotton Bacon Prime.


The weeks before the Christmas and the arrival of winter for the vapers are the time of year with a large consumption of hot and intense creamy liquids and also of tobacco e-juices with a strong and dark body. E-liquids recipes able to accompany the vaper giving it enveloping sensations, in a sort of warm and passionate winter embrace. In recent weeks the italian brand Dago launched three new e-liquids that fit perfectly into the category of traditional winter e-juices, and so today I take this opportunity to tell you about one of these new Dago products: Choko.

The official description of the product is simple and essential and makes it clear what to expect from this e-liquid:

Choko è una crema di latte al cioccolato con una forte presenza di arachidi tostate e salate.

Choko is a chocolate milk cream with a strong presence of roasted and salted peanuts.

Dago’s aromas are sold inside a cardboard box, containing a 60 ml chubby gorilla bottle, filled with 20 ml of propylene glycol aroma. To obtain the liquid in its final composition, it will be necessary to add a base of 40 ml (with if you desire the presence of nicotine). The packaging of this line is exquisite and well-made, made of bright and colorful graphics with exemplary attention to detail. A style worthy of the masters of packaging from US. Congratulations!

SMELL TEST

On the smell, Choko strongly releases all the scent of a real cocoa bean, which spreads and penetrates deeply into my nostrils. After repeated pressure on the bottle, I can perceive a thin veil of toasted peanuts that, more than ever intriguing, make their way inside a sweet and sometimes buttery frame. It is precisely in these situations that suddenly reopens the drawer of my olfactory memories, making me recognize in this Choko the aromatic features of an irresistible French liquid of few years ago.

The similarities are incredible and I hope to find them even in the vape test.

For the vape test I rely on the quality of Vapefly’s latest creation, namely the Brunhilde MTL RTA which for the occasion I set for a restricted flavor chasing vape. I admit the manufacturer’s indications advise to vape Choko in cloud chasing, but I prefer to try it with reduced power and airiness to better feel all the nuances from this mix.

VAPE TEST

On vape the cocoa element is the first to emerge on my palate. Contrary to what was perceived during the smell test, the puff during inhalation presents a softer cocoa scent, the cocoa bean seems to have given way to a sweet chocolate cream: from the cocoa bean to a tasty melted bar of milk chocolate. The structure of Choko is naturally sweet, but often during the vape I have the sensation that the sweet component of the bouquet has been further accentuated by adding some other sweetening element or molecule. The effect is certainly good, especially if you decide to taste Choko at big power with a direct to lung vape, but in my opinion it takes away a bit of elegance from the mix, even if certainly as it was built, it is more easily understood by the great vaper public.

In the heart of the puff, despite the bulky presence of the sweet stamps, emerges with peremptoriness a hint of roasted and salted peanuts with absolute aromatic fidelity. The e-liquid acquires fullness and intensity and the chocolate-peanut combination turns into a large and reassuring dark mantle that envelops and conquers the entire palate.

The intertwining of the soft shades of chocolate with the vigor and depth of roasted peanuts spreads to the tail notes of the puff where a light and almost imperceptible caramelized finish completes the recipe. Even the aromatic persistence at the end of the vape is more than good, the perceptions of each ingredients are quite distinct and in the air around the scent of cocoa spreads voluptuous.

Choko’s aromatic plant, well faceted and with more than ever natural sensations, always appears round and balanced, although as mentioned above, the manufacturer clearly wanted to emphasize the sweetening of this recipe. The chocolate-peanut binomial is not new in the international e-liquids panorama, but often in the past for this type of recipe, it was exaggerated with the almost immoderate use of peanut butter. In this creation instead, we I have to appreciate Dago because it proposes the unmistakable taste of real roasted and salted peanuts. Guaranteed pleasure!

Even on vape, as on the smell proof, Choko remembers very much the superb creation of a French brand tried and tested a few years ago. As many of you will know, for our internal policy we never mention names of other brands in a review, but if you are curious to find out which is the name of that e-juice, you will just need a quick search here on the blog and the game will be done.

Morning Glory (Blendfeel)

Morning Glory (Blendfeel)

Name and Format: Morning Glory (Blendfeel) – Concentrated flavour 10 ml – received by the manufacturer

Batch: 19166600040001

Nico: 3 mg/ml

Declared Base: 48 PG / 48 VG / 4 H2O

Expiry date: 05/2021

Devices: Yihi SX Mini MX Class 75W TC + Smoemesto Kayfun Lite 24mm single coil 1.20 ohm (Kanthal A1 29AWG 0,28mm) with Cotton Bacon Prime.


Today I find myself close by the rich Blendfeel galleon loaded as always with precious tobacco  extracted aromas, a boon for tobacco vape lovers. I am going to test the qualities of Morning Glory aroma that the manufacturer describes in this way on its official website:

Il mattino ha l’oro in bocca e questo blend tipicamente inglese da “early morning” vuole essere allo stesso tempo aggraziato, carezzevole e sferzante di energia. Un compito non facile, che proponiamo in una mistura di Black Cavendish, Bright Virginia e una qualità alquanto aggressiva di Latakia cipriota per dare un risveglio non troppo brusco, ma deciso.

The early bird catches the worm and this typically early English morning blend wants to be graceful, caressing and energy-beating at the same time. A not easy task, which we propose in a mixture of Black Cavendish, Bright Virginia and a rather aggressive quality of Cypriot Latakia to give a not too abrupt but decided awakening.

But we should move one step at a time and before starting, We remind you that the “Aroma di tabacco” line has a total of twenty-eight flavors in amber glass bottles containing 10 ml of pure tobacco extract in propylene glycol. Rich with information are vintage labels that recall old parchments and yellowed maps. Blendfeel as always proves exemplary in providing the buyer with 360 degrees clarity on what he is buying. Example to follow.

SMELL TEST

The smell analysis of Morning Glory immediately makes me understand that I am in front of a rather masculine tobacco e-juice in which thin smoky hints sprout boldly from a markedly vegetable frame. The olfactory picture does not appear particularly unusual as the plant matrix, easily attributable to Bright Virginia, seems to hold firmly in its hands the scepter of this composition, relegating both the easily perceivable Latakia and the Black Cavendish, undoubtedly more hidden, to the role of subjects. It is only thanks to the perception of sparse puffs of sweetness that I can guess, albeit in the distance the presence of Black Cavendish tobacco.

We said several times in the past, Black Cavendish is notoriously not very prone to emerge with its unmistakable distinctive traits, it is instead perfect for getting married and always blending very nicely with its “traveling companions”.

For today’s vape test I will rely on the latest creation from a manufacturer that needs no introduction: Smoemesto and its Kayfun Lite 24mm.

VAPE TEST

On vape, the Morning Glory tobacco imprinting, contrary to what was captured by the smell test, is instead very unique and intriguing. Immediately in inspiration an impertinent Latakia stings and tickles the palate with dexterity, but without sinking the blow. Latakia leaves the mark of its presence but does not rage on my taste buds with its typical vehemence. A penetrating and slightly bitter note makes its way following the cues of the Latakia and makes the puff vibrant and unexpected.

In the central phases of the puff the Latakia shots open up to more grassy scents, with notes of wet hay that permeate the puff quite clearly. The Latakia-Virginia duel is no holds barred, the penetrating thrusts of the Latakia alternate with the enveloping attacks of Virginia. Energetic and lively, sometimes unprejudiced.

The tight rhythms imposed by Latakia and Bright Virginia are managed with subtle skill by the Black Cavendish tobacco that almost muted limits its excesses, avoiding that the bouquet is too sharp. The Black Cavendish is the silent judge who keeps the duel riveting but avoiding that it leads to aromatic “misconduct” on the part of the two contenders.

Black Cavendish is just a graceful trace that acts as a binder to the boldness of the Latakia and to the invasion of Virginia. It blows gently with its typical softness within the mix, its nuances are not captured unequivocally, but its presence is perceived in that sense of harmonic present in the mix, even within a score that is however decided and vibrant.

The vape experience is compelling, the palate welcomes the strength of this bouquet but at the same time it perceives the wide aromatic breath. The tail notes show drier and bitter nuances that return to tease the taste buds inviting them to a new puff.

Morning Glory is a tobacco extract that stands out for its strength without ever appearing dark and gloomy. The morning awakening is guaranteed, and why not even a charge of energy for the rest of the day.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cons: The citrus notes are very weak.

Sharm (Iron Vaper)

Sharm (Iron Vaper)

Name e Format: Sharm (Iron Vaper) – Concentrated flavor 20 ml – received by the manufacturer

Batch: 1909253

Nico: 0 mg/ml

Declared base: 50 PG / 50 VG

Expiry date: 09/2021

Devices: Vaporesso Gen 220W + Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite RTA single fused clapton coil 1,0 ohm (Ni80 30 awg x 2 + Ni80 38 awg) with Cotton Bacon Prime.


Here on our blog we never talked about Iron Vaper, a young and dynamic Italian company that produces e-liquids (mainly creamy and fruity) expecially for cloud chasing and flavor chasing lovers. And finally that day came …

So today we will give space for the first time to this italian company, very curious about one of its latest creations: Sharm.

It is sufficient to observe the product packaging, to understand that Sharm (a good name however does not lie) is inspired by ancient Egypt. A pretty cardboard pyramid holds a 60 ml chubby gorilla, containing 20 ml of concentrated aroma to which will be added another 40 ml of base to obtain the mixture ready to vape. On a lively and oriental label with a background rich in hieroglyphics, we cannot fail to note the accuracy and completeness of the information given, from the manufacturer’s references, passing through the product info and ending with the various danger pictograms.

Not having been able to find an official description of Sharm from the manufacturer official website, we use one of the descriptions found on the net by some e-cig shops:

Delizioso marzapane alle mandorle arricchito da una dolce crema all’Argan. Il tutto è equilibrato da particolari spezie orientali che rendono questo liquido unico nel suo genere.

Delicious almond marzipan enriched with a sweet Argan cream. Everything is balanced by particular oriental spices that make this e-liquid unique in its kind.

SMELL TEST

Since the first sniff Sharm (created in collaboration with the influencer Stefano Porcelli) shows without any fear what we like to define its sweet almond soul. The aromatic load is high, as is appropriate for e-juices created specifically for cloud chasing, but nevertheless they do not escape on the smell some subtle though not clearly identifiable spicy nuances which, alongside the dominant almond scent, form a rather sweet mix , rich and tasty. I have to be honest: if I think to Egypt, my imagination runs towards shores and perfumes much more spicy and decidedly less sweet, but here we enter into the ambit of subjective evaluations that must appropriately remain outside the aromatic analyzes of our reviews.

I rush towards the vape test, relying 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

If in the smell test Sharm had not surprised me that much, presenting itself as a good creamy, sweet and with some very light spicy cue, things change radically during the vape test and, from the first puff I note that this aroma leaves the clothes of the classic creamy e-juice to dress those of a rather unusual and sophisticated recipe.

It is surprising, in fact, the reduced sweetness that welcomes me in the inhalation phase, capable of showing, on the contrary, intriguing spicy scents wrapped in a light and mysterious roasted aura. Absolutely not easy to describe the components that burst into inspiration, but some fat and vegetable scents with subtle hazel nuances, suggest and reflect well the idea of an argan vegetable oil.

Argan oils and creams are obtained from the processing of Moroccan argan seeds and, due to their beneficial properties, are widely used in cosmetics, especially for the wellness and personal care. But in the vape, never any manufacturer in our memory, until now used it …

After the sophisticated starting hints, Sharm strengthens its aromatic load, and in the second part of the puff has an important creamy imprint. Now the bouquet combines with the oriental notes, a tasty and sweet almond paste that takes over the scene.

On the heart of the puff and up to the consistent aromatic post-vaping persistence, the sweet contribution of almond marzipan is very evident and also very pleasant because it is made by the manufacturer in a natural and realistic way. In my opinion, however, there is no warning, a strengthening of the sugar component, due to the contribution of a fair dose of sucralose (or similar agents) and probably to a slight vanilla tip.

In cloud chasing configuration, the sweetest and creamiest notes of Sharm are exalted, the vape is fat and full-bodied, but inevitably presents a more compressed aromatic score; on the contrary, if tried in restricted flavor chasing, Sharm perhaps loses slightly in roundness in favor of a more refined and multi-faceted bouquet, and still preserving its sweet and creamy tones.

Suggested dilution: 33%

Steeping time: ready to vape.

Pro: A tasty and refined cream with atypical ingredients.

Cons: In cloud chasing the liquid exceeds in sweetness and turned out to be a bit confused and mixed.

Expiry date: n.a.

Devices:Uwell Nunchaku 80W + Geekvape MTL RTA single coil 1,15 ohm (Kanthal A1 28 awg 0,32 mm) with Cotton Bacon Prime


Today I am going to review a new organic tobacco aroma by the Italian company TNT Vape, a market leader for the classic tobacco e-liquid market, but more than ever projected in recent months towards the world of tobacco extracted. The blog has already hosted some reviews of organic products by this company, such as the Strike and the Booms Organic Classic, and today I am ready to tell you about Sioux, one of the six aromas of the “Natural Organic” line.

Sioux is a concentrated aroma marketed inside a 10 ml PET bottle and which the manufacturer describes so officially:

Rolling tobacco: un blend robusto e secco in cui il Burley fa da palcoscenico a tabacchi più aromatici, con una nota di Kentucky a dare ulteriore forza a questo aroma.

Rolling tobacco: a robust and dry blend in which Burley acts as a stage for more aromatic tobaccos, with a note from Kentucky to add further strength to this aroma.

I begin the examination of this aroma with curiosity, starting as usual from a brief but I hope significant smell test.

SMELL TEST

On the smell, Sioux has a slight sweet and vegetal matrix from which emerge most penetrating and decisive tobacco cues. I perceive the typical hint of “raw” tobacco or treated leather, which distinguishes the presence of Kentucky tobacco. Here, for the truth, the kentucky notes are a bit of shy, but they are still sufficient to carve out a prominent role within this mix. On the smell it seems to me to be in the presence of a medium intensity aroma, which would like to wear the clothes of a classic all day tobacco. We’ll see.

For the vape test I chose to use what in our team’s opinion is currently the best MTL RTA atomizer in the low cost vape market: Geekvape Ammit MTL RTA.

VAPE TEST

The Sioux vape is immediately dry and deep, it conquers me at every puff because I notice that Sioux is very good at minimizing the typical sugar insertions of all the extracted tobaccos. During the inspiration a dry, clean and no-frills Burley takes the scene, dictating from the first puff the rhythms of this blend. I perceive my nostrils tickled by a Burley tobacco that, even without any smoky jolt, manages to give a rather strong imprint to the e-liquid.

The aromatic structure of Sioux is not particularly complex, far from it, yet in its simple linearity, it sinks and penetrates my palate puff after puff. Then it’s possible to make an extremely dry tobacco extract and without having to resort to the use of smoking agents or other fire-cured tobaccos!

The tobacco score is enriched in the heart of the puff with slightly more aromatic and sweet hints of the Virginia and Oriental tobaccos that, barely mentioned, gently blow almost imperceptibly on the dry plant of this blend.

Sioux has a superlative structural balance and even when the woody and only partially smoky shades of the kentucky peep out from the back, I realize how absolutely perfect is the geometry of this aroma, a product that shows itself exactly what it wanted to be: linear, robust and dry. The Kentucky at the end of the puff adds roundness and body to the blend, but without ever completely occupying the stage of Sioux with its cumbersome presence, which remains firmly under the control of a Burley, so clear and resolute as ever. Would you ever have said that a “simple” Burley could have scored a tobacco extract so deeply?

TNT Vape demonstrates that even Burley, the most undervalued between tobacco leaf, the ideal shoulder to be inserted into the most complex bouquets, can indelibly sign a real tobacco e-juice. It is enough to know how to choose the most suitable variety and send it on stage with the right timing…

Surprised by this aroma? Absolutely not, because I am well aware of the quality work that TNT Vape has been doing in this sector for years. And even if Sioux does not have the global success of the Booms, I find that it is an aroma to be taken as an absolute reference in the manufacturing of all-day tobaccos. Also call it the Absolute All Day Vape tobacco.

Suggested dilution: 10%

Steeping time: 5 days

Pro: A reference point for all day tobacco e-juices. Dry, tireless, perfect.

Cons:
