We continue our journey in the world of natural tobaccos with the arrival of cold Vaporificio and Black Note, with a new liquid from the V line of Black Note thus arriving at the fourth reviews. From now on, I will begin a serious change regarding a future of light tobacco of the line, a tobacco that has always been considered and with its characteristics to attract lovers of extractions, therefore of Oriental. As by now we will study together the unique characteristics of the single tobacco, this means no blend.
Let’s start with a few nods to go into this world full of nuances and curiosities. The eastern name derives from the place of cultivation in Turkey, Syria and Iran and in some regions of Greece. The leaves are characterized by very small and fatty dimensions, rich in essential oils, once they are collected they are made in the sun. The most common oriental blends came from the Izmir type which came as a strong aromatic component in the same way.
As with all the products of this line, this aroma is also a recommended formula 10 ml, with a maturation time of about 10/15 days. The result after mixing and after 10 days of waiting, is a liquid with warm tones of a decisive yellow.
This is the description given to us by the producers:
It is the smallest type of tobacco in size but the richest in oils. The Oriental grows in the warm and dry summers of the Balkans and the Middle East. It is a tobacco with a highly aromatic and spicy flavor.
The manufacturer with his description is able to transmit small information to fully enjoy the liquid and provides us with the main information of the peculiar characteristics, as we imagined we will be faced with a liquid with a high aromatic value and which finds its centrality in the spicy taste typical of oriental blends. We also expect a sour note that will balance the classic sweet nuances of the light tobaccos.
So begins a delicate olfactory test, the nuances are many and never easy to perceive and understand, the delicacy is the emblem of the test. A delicate sour hint rises from the bottle and gently wraps in gently, acidity gives way to a sensation of delicate but full-bodied sweetness. The spicy part bursts into the general picture in a decisive manner and unequivocally clarifies the central element that we are going to savor. You can grasp a quick woody burst only after several tests understanding immediately that even if hidden will certainly be incisive in the test of vaporization.
I pass to the vaporization test with my load of expectations, in the initial part of the puff the first sensation that surrounds me is spicy, a scathing spicy at times decided at times more timid, in its most decisive phase is perceived almost spicy on the palate while instead, in the most delicate phase, sugary values come into play, softening aromatic safety at the right point. In the central phase the other characteristic element makes space in the aromatic bouquet the leaf is transmitted to us through straw yellow-herbaceous strokes masterfully smoked by the oriental sun which raise the aromatic values making us the rich and full-bodied vapors. In the final part of the svapata there are no doubts the well-mixed sugar notes are delicately transmitted in contrast with the note acidula that tends vaping after svapata to take over the sweet notes and it is the acid note that settles on our palate preparing the land for a new cargo of spices arriving with a new vaping. The liquid as a whole is well built and all the elements come into play at the right time by combining perfectly and each feature is enhanced by the next element in a well balanced and concrete aromatic wheel.
The oriental is often used in blends but leaves no doubt about its quality taken individually, a tobacco that makes the spice its central element and thicker but that gives us multiple shades of acidity and sweetness that make it perfect to use in all circumstances and at any time of the day.
The test also for this product has been carried out for several ml, being a light sugary unsweetened, the duration of the coil was excellent after 10 ml taste is unchanged the cotton is still in excellent condition and the caremellization is not such as to have perform dry-burn or complete coil change. We remain satisfied with the average duration of the resistances of all the products in the line.
