Big Tobacco Companies = Very Bad.
Big Tobacco Flavor = Very Good.
Undeniably the most sought after flavor for e-cig lovers is tobacco. It could be Virginia, some sort of fire or flue cured, or any type, they make them all. The reason of course is because almost everyone who uses an e-cig was once upon a time a smoker of cigarettes. Trying to recapture the essence of tobacco in a propylene glycol solution is tough, but a lot of juice companies are doing a damn fine job at it.
Gourmet Vapor is one of those companies. They make some solid juices and give you the flexibility to create and order your own. I cannot tell you how wonderful that is. If I wasn’t a completely broke family man, I would devote a lot of hard earned cash and time to making my own flavors. I think I would probably go overboard with that, so its a good thing I have to buy diapers and food.
Full Flavor Tobacco is a really solid blend of tobacco’s, and its better than a lot of the tobacco flavors out there… Not all, but a good amount. This was an 80/20 PG/VG mix at 18mg tobacco.
It does not say what blend of tobacco flavors are in here, but I know they have some of the following available that may be in here in various percentages: American Tobacco, Tobacco Absolute, Fire Cured Tobacco, Basic Tobacco, Turkish, Cuban, Latakia, Shade, Smokey… and so on. There is no way I am going to be able to guess what is in here, but I don’t care, its good. Its a big full flavor tobacco without any of that funny business where sometimes a juice maker throws in Anise or something, its just tobacco. If you want something really bold, go for this juice.
Vapor Production: ★★★★☆
For being 80% PG, this juice holds together ridiculously well in the vapor department. I am tempted to go 100% VG next time, I may just be blown away.
Throat Hit: ★★★★¼
This juice has a really good throat hit. Its rough on you in the good way, like getting spanked.
The consistency is kind of watery, that is ok, but I prefer something thick as maple syrup.
Overall Score: ★★★¾☆
This is one of the better tobacco flavors I have tried. I think I would have loved this juice when I was just starting off, now I like things a little more complex and complicated, but this is a no-frills type of tobacco flavor. If thats what you are into, go check this stuff out!
