We begin the new year full of good intentions and news, but with the usual guidelines that we have always tried to convey to you readers. In the meanders of our boxes full of liquids that come from all over the world we can not help but notice in its elegant package, which we will talk later, a eliquid mold “stars and stripes”, which seems almost hidden to escape the our clutches. This is the last eliquid of NET Naturally Extracted Tobacco, BlackNote, this eliquid is not part of the new lines that have given us unique emotions on these pages in recent months, its most recent origin does not question the great potential that we were able to appreciate it in the initial months of 2018. For the most recent readers, we feel obliged to remember that this line is produced in Italy but bottled in that of California, home of, perhaps, the most important tobacco producer in America Black Note. So we come so today we will talk about the Solo.
Surely the packaging of the bottle in which the eliquid presents itself is really unique and well thought out in terms of design, there is no doubt that it is a well-made and almost exhibition-like packaging with its very elegant lines and a really detailed texture and of high chromatic level. Once the cap has been removed from the cylindrical packaging, inside it is a 60ml bottle of ready-to-use liquid, equipped with a convenient dropper dispenser wrapped in a light and light-colored label with an overwhelming box on the side. Solo name and a description to Menthol blend. In our experience mint is definitely a double-edged sword, there are those who can not do without it and those who just can not get closer, a great risk from the producers, the game will be worth the candle?
This is the description given to us by the producers:
Solo begins with a fine, ultra-smooth Virginia tobacco to provide a rich, flavorful base, then incorporates a layer of natural fresh menthol crystals extracted from matured dried mint leaves. The result is a refreshing menthol flavor without any harsh bite for a bright, cool vaping experience.
The description brings us harmoniously into the ideal state of mind to deal with this test correctly, the tabaccosa base we are preparing for will be a soft but well present and full soft virginia, combined with menthol extracted naturally to enhance the taste unique of this certainly interesting combination.
So we arrive at the olfactory test, open the bottle and immediately we are faced with a “forest” of mint, a scent that almost stuns us. The aromatic level is really high almost indistinguishable from a freshly picked leaf, in which we find its unique characteristics: a slightly sweet sparkling part and a strong freshness that transports us almost to the poles. The heady wave mentholing in this olfactory test covers in its entirety the smell of virginia that makes its appearance “elbowing” after being able to divert our sense from this real and full freshness. The very delicate virginia maintains its classic characteristics giving the fumes coming from the flasks vegetal and slightly sweet nuances mixing with mastery in this mentholated green wave.
After an excellent olfactory test that has raised a lot of curiosity in us we do nothing but load our tank and begin to take us along this path full of clouds of frozen steam. The first notes we meet are certainly not black, but I would say that they definitely tend to the green, the green that we find in the fresh and lit mint leaves, which in this case really remind unequivocally the leaf just picked, the feeling is really real in mouth we have no more steam but mint, rich and tasty charge that fills our palate leaving icy trails but at the same time slightly sweet. The sensation is not that given by synthetic liquids and it is not about menthol or ice, we can almost say that little leaf just taken from the plant in which sparkling and fresh notes do not exceed but give a unique taste have been directly inserted in this bottle. Surely the role of virginia can not go into the background because the aromatic creation is based on these two elements, and in this case the tobacco comes out later trying to contain the explosive charge given by the mint, which allows itself to comply at the end of the puff transferring to our palate the characteristics that made it the most widespread tobacco. In fact, we find slightly vegetal and delicately sweet notes that can overturn the situation mitigating that icy feeling that accompanies us from the beginning to the end of the breath. Tobacco certainly is put in the background but we can not say that goes unnoticed, in flashes can also balance the central element, making it really appealing and enjoyable.
We will see in the construction of this eliquid a great knowledge on the aromatic level, surely it will satisfy the lovers of mint, but also those seeking a moment of relaxation from the usual dry and raw compositions, capacity conferred by an elegant and delicate virginia but that is well known stick up for.
Pro: A really real mint.
Cons: Not suitable for those who can not stand mint.
