In ten years we will remember the beginning of 2020 as the year that marked an epochal turning point for organic tobacco extracts, an e-liquid category for which Italy, thanks to its numerous and innovative manufacturers, is the undisputed world leader. The great limit of the so-called n.e.t (naturally extracted tobacco) has always been linked to the rapid deterioration of the coils of the atomizers. Today even this limit can finally be considered exceeded and organic tobaccos can open up to a much wider audience of vaper, the large slice of vapers eager to try the true taste of tobacco but not willing to use any type of rebuildable system.
From today you can vape an organic tobacco with the awareness that this will not drastically affect the life of the diy coil or premade coil, ensuring wear equal to that of a synthetic e-juice.
Let’s start the exploratory journey among these new generation of tobaccos with the latest e-liquid manufactured by the Emilian company Angolo della Guancia, the MiXture H2O:
Un blend unico di Virginia, Burley e Latakia tutti estratti con la nuova tecnologia che permette una purezza unica e un aroma che solo il tabacco organico sa dare.
A unique blend of Virginia, Burley and Latakia all extracted with the new technology that allows a unique purity and an aroma that only organic tobacco can give.
Angolo della Guancia is the first company in the world to have developed a completely mechanical extraction technology that involves the extraction of the aromatic components of tobacco leaves by means of water vapor streams, a sort of distillation process. The process, ensures the manufacturer, guarantees a decidedly long life cycle for the atomizer resistances, preserving the aroma and taste of tobacco. And we are ready to find out …
Before going into the MiXture tests, we remind you that this product is marketed in the shot series format, 20 ml of propylene glycol aroma inside a 60 ml bottle. To obtain the 60 ml e-liquid ready to vape, it will be necessary to add a base of 30 ml of vegetable glycerol plus an additional base of 10 ml of propylene glycol. The transparent label of the bottle (with the exception of two light blue bands with the product information) is singular, but very functional to the type of product, to clearly highlight and show the total transparency of this blend.
The smell test reveals the presence of a tobacco mixture characterized mainly by the smoky scent of Latakia tobacco, which however is elegantly released from the bottle without showing the typical impetuosity of the Syrian tobacco; it is an unusually moderate Latakia easily surrounded by light vegetal notes enriched by a singular sensation of damp grass. In addition, perhaps also for its crystalline color, there is a sense of incredible cleanliness that flows through the veins of the MiXture aromatic frame, perhaps it is only an amazing illusion, but it looks like a tobacco-flavored water.
For the vape test I chose to rely on the incredible qualities of the Kizoku Limit MTL RTA in its rebuildable configuration. It is a super performing and perfect atomizer for this type of blend. If you missed our review, click on this link.
A new tobacco dimension welcomes me from the first puff and I assure you that it displaces me, leaving me dumbfounded for a few long and interminable seconds. All the certainties acquired in many years of vaping on the extracted tobaccos flavors, break in the presence of this MiXture. Beyond what, with no small difficulty, I will try to describe you shortly, it is important that you know that MiXture is a tobacco different from everything you tried so far with regards to n.e.t .; different not because it presents an unprecedented aromatic formula, but because the new extraction method distorts any concept acquired so far and opens up to a still unknown panorama.
The first sensation that occurs to me during inspiration is that of being in front of a mixture that is halfway between a tobacco infusion and a tobacco grappa, obviously without the alcoholic component. The tobacco note is woody but not excessively dry, on the contrary a sweet bottom trail, conferred by Virginia, is perceptible. The aromatic structure is always very round and pleasant but never bland.
Unlike what was perceived during the smell test, in the initial stages of the puff the typicality of Latakia is missing, while the distilled nuances of Burley are more evident, probably responsible for that sense of woodiness and linearity that hovers around the e-juice. In the heart of the puff the aromatic nuances tend to become stronger, the woody shades become more incisive, supported by a refined smoky veil that gives body and tenor to the whole bouquet.
Although unusual in taste and devoid of any type of incensed nuance, I trace in these refined smoky scents the full value of Latakia tobacco which slides with good intensity until the exhalation phase, and then runs out and disappears suddenly in an aromatic persistence so light and modest.
In fact, if you think about it, another great advantage of MiXture lies precisely in the sense of cleanliness that remains on the palate at the end of each puff, a sensation that makes impossible the phenomenon of aromatic addiction and therefore increases the long-term vapability of the e-juice. If you then add the longevity that is able to guarantee to the coils, I would say that we are facing something extraordinary.
The moment I am finishing my review I reached 30 ml of vaped e-liquid and I am still waiting for the atom to signal me the need to rebuild my coil. And I think I will have a little more to wait …
