The typically autumnal day stimulated my desire to try my and tasting/reviewing a liquid with warm tones, the ones I personally think are particularly suitable for the harshest climates; so rummaging through the bottles in my possession, I immediately noticed a chubby gorilla received from TNT Vape only a few days ago and then I had no doubts: it is The Master, the new organic tobacco e-liquid by the italian company, the perfect choice.
The Master, is a shot aroma marketed in the typical 20 ml aroma format inside a 60 ml chubby gorilla. You have to add to the aroma a 40 ml base (if you desire with nicotine) to obtain a finished product in the recommended composition 50/50.
In my opinion, the label of the product is accurate and well-made. It contains all the useful information for the consumer, from the name of the product, to the aroma composition, to the format, to the danger pictograms, and to end with the personal references of the manufacturer.
The following is the official description of The Master found on the official TNT Vape website:
La perfetta unione di Latakia cipriota e Cedro, tutto rigorosamente organico.
Un liquido per chi non ha paura di osare, un accostamento originale, azzardato e perfetto: le note agrumate vanno a completare e ad arricchire il carattere duro e scuro del Latakia.
The perfect union of Cypriot Latakia and Cedar, all strictly organic.
A liquid for those who are not afraid to dare, an original, risky and perfect combination: the citrus notes complete and enrich the hard and dark Latakia character.
Tobacco Latakia and citrus fruits in general are ingredients that in the vaping become easily recognize since a first olfactory approach; also in this case, being in a mix between the famous Syrian tobacco and the cedar, The Master’s smell test reveals intense citrus fragrances that emerge defiantly from a clear and bold tabaco background, within which it is very easy identify some of the most typical cues of the prince of tobaccos. The sour-smoky mix that comes out of it is among the most impertinent and at the same time captivating scents that have ever happened to me in several years of e-juices tastings.
Intrigued by this promising smell test, I prepare for the vape test for which I decided to rely on the qualities of the Siren 2 GTA 24mm by Digiflavor. I am convinced that this atomizer will exalt the fruity component of The Master in the right way, without penalizing the tobacco part; I expect to find the right balance between the two actors of this tobacco flavored e-juice.
The Master is a liquid that immediately proves to be stimulating to the palate because it manages to transform a potential difficult aromatic dualism, into an enviable combination between the explosive energy of citrus notes and the shady and overbearing hints of Latakia tobacco.
It is no longer a mystery that Latakia tobacco is increasingly becoming the protagonist in the tobacco recipes proposed by the Italian manufacturers, but the big news is that it has only recently begun to offer this tobacco in combinations considered until recently unthinkable. Thanks also to the evolution of extraction and filtration techniques, we began to dare more with this type of aroma.
In the inspiration phase, does not escape me the aromatic intersection that the manufacturer managed to create between the two ingredients of the mix.
The puff is lively and has a very well balanced bouquet of smoky tobacco notes, quickly reached and enriched by subtle and penetrating hints of lemon/cedar (it is frankly impossible to distinguish between the two).
The sensorial experience deriving from this harsh-smoked combination is atypical but at the same time very refined, and it expands also in the central phases of the vape acquiring a greater richness of taste. In front of an aromatic structure certainly of high profile, thanks to the careful and meticulous work of TNT Vape flavourists and their courage in embarking on such an exciting challenge.
Continuing with my test, I perceive that the presence of the cedar has slightly “depleted” the characteristics of Latakia, reducing the perception of its typical spicy cues and its sweet aftertaste. However, the vigorous and great character that is universally recognized in this tobacco does not come less, always perceptible in every moment of the puff. Even the tail notes maintain the aromatic balance between the citrus and the tobacco elements.
It is a Latakia, so to speak, “deconstructed” what one encounters in The Master, but it is also a Latakia more easily received and thanks to its cedar association, acquires a different value: from inimitable tobacco for slow vape tasting, to perfect strong all day tobacco.
Suggested dilution: 33%
Steeping time: ready to vape; suggested 3-4 days
Pro: A very good flavored Latakia for an all day vape
