Ready to know what we have to say about Ripe Vapes VCT?

Before you start, take a quick look at the flask in our possession. A classic 30 ml transparent glass flask, with childproof cap and glass dropper with medium sized beak. The label, very pleasing to the touch for its satin effect, has a very well-groomed and elegant rustic style. I do not dwell on the information on the label, but I want to inform you that because of the TPD Ripe Vapes are currently marketed in Italy in the classic Mix Series 50 ml + addition of a 10 ml nicotine booster that will get 60 Ml final product at different levels of nicotine.

VCT is officially described as follows:

This sophisticated joose is sure to leave you desiring more. Sweet and sexy vanilla custard up front, with a rich finishing touch of fine tobacco and a hint of toasted almond. Aimed to please the novice, or the distinguished smoker.
Everyone knows it but it’s up to you to write it, VCT stands for Vanilla Custard Tobacco; Will it really be so?
Tobacco Vanilla Custard

VCT has a vanilla custard dominant scent. Round, sweet and enveloping, vanilla custard covers pretty well imperceptible alcoholic tips and above all hide any other ingredient present in the mix. They seem to emerge from the intense aroma of vanilla cream with slightly hazy and toasted nuances. On the whole, the smell is pretty intriguing, and it immediately invites you to the vape test.

Highly stimulated by the odor test, dripp my first drops of VCT on my Recoil and the first puffs affront of what many call the Prince of nectar Ripe vapes.

By inspiration I am immediately wrapped up by the round and credible notes of one of the best vanilla custard I have ever tasted and tasted. Exceptionally soft and creamy, it gives a grim and satisfying feel. A vanilla cream full, overwhelming and “intoxicating”. The mouthful immediately acquires a fullness and richness of enviable taste.

A sexy cream? I confirmed it, a custard highly aphrodisiac, aphrodisiac so that, thanks to the perception of some typical aromatic nuances, makes me suspect the use of incentives by the manufacturer of creaminess (diacetyl and / or acetyl propionyl). And indeed the latest lab results published by Ripe Vapes confirm this thesis.

The result, additives or not, is excellent, a superb vanilla custard. A cream that with its body, fills the whip in a global way taking the scene even in the central notes.

The long embrace of this delicious vanilla custard is enriched in the notes of tail that are slightly less soft and drier, which create an aromatic contrast that partially reduces the bitterness of the creamy component. Shaded dry shadows look shyly at the end of the mouth, and then definitively characterize in exhalation: roasted almonds of exquisite workmanship. The aromatic texture is perfectly matched with the almond finish, elegantly achieving a perfect balance.

But tobacco where is it?

In VCT tobacco, though with all the attenuating cultural circumstances, is a mere illusion. It has often been said that, in the Anglo-Saxon culture of e-liquids, tobacco in the vast majority of cases carries a function of a simple ingredient in those called tobacco-flavored e-liquids and covering the larger slice of the already narrow niche of tabaccosi. But beyond these attenuating factors, the point is that VCT certainly can not be termed a tobacco-flavored e-juice. No aromatic nuances worthy of being tasty, emerges from the bouquet in the various stages of the snatch. It’s the big limit of a very good product that is not what it says to be. It was worth calling it VCA …
