Slartibartfast by The Vapor Chef
A cherry cavendish tobacco. A complex tobacco, notes of oak and cherry with a slight hint of vanilla. This tastes like the tobacco shops I used to walk into as a child with my father. The smell of the fresh cherry pipe tobacco right when they opened that big glass jar to scoop some into a bag. That's what this tastes like.
First to review. I was VERY curious to try Tyrion and glad I did. Prior to loading my tank, I’d forgotten what the components in the juice were and went in blind. Somewhat dragonfruit, some kind of hard candy.
I jogged my memory with the official tasting notes and champagne and orange juice were actually accurate, and happy that there was effervescence within.
There is a slight counterweight blended in, like bitters or a bit of bark. Also, a ruby-red grapefruit hook is lodged deep down.
Not a go-to for me, but good enough that someone out there probably will love it, and as a whole, I like The Vapor Chef’s products.
First to review. According to the vendor site: "An aromatic hot green tea flavor with subtle essences of tropical mango and ginger."
Rewriting after changing my coil. Not unpleasant. Something tells me I should've not chosen max vg, though, if fruits/bevs = PG, creams/custards = VG. There's not enough flavor here. Scratch that - there’s almost no flavor, like tea that wasn’t steeped enough.
I wasn't able to easily classify the flavors within. Way too subtle, possibly due to operator error. (!) The aromatics were good, as the description hinted. Would order again, maybe, but only with 50/50 ratio or a new pipe. I'm using it to top off other liquids because it’s so neutral.

Note: this vape has nothing to do with Southern Comfort liqueur!! Doesn’t evoke it; idk if that was intended? And I hate grenadine enough to know if that’s sneaking around, and I’ve had a few false alarms in the sweetness. Tobacco is what I’m after, not here trying to force fruit.
Overcoming all that though, in a word: cozy. 12 mg was overkill, but I will recommend this for a try, as well as generally anything 3 and above from here on out.
TBH, I was a little worried about this one after the debacle with Dominic's Fury. However, it's right there on the fence for me of either being worth a try or walking past and not looking back in regret.
Thankfully, the peaches and brown sugar were just right and complementary. Was wondering if there was any SoCo influence present in the juice, based on the name.
Not bad! (But still a little b-string.) Will vape again.
Edit: second time through - the brown sugar exhale is actually very good! Will eventually reorder. Do yourself a favor and go with a 10-15 mL sample first.
A satisfying, mature, balanced vape. Accompanied by coffee or the newer maple whiskies, you'd be good to go. Long on the finish and pleasant from the start, it'd be good in between fruit vapes and tobacco vapes. Whiskey is subtle; cream is more pronounced.
Not recommended for an ADV. It’s a nice one to throw in the mix on occasion, but I got burnt out on it quickly.

Strong dragon fruit flavor balanced by slightly tart acai. Enough sweetness to bring out the flavors but the rich blackberryish flavor from the acai evens out the flavor on the exhale. A bit complex, each flavor shows distinct hints during the pull, sweet fruit followed by slightly tart with a almost dark chocolate aftertaste. It's a richer more complex alternative to fruit bowl type flavors.
Every time I've ordered from the Vapor Chef, I've gotten prompt shipment, delicious juice, and free samples. In some cases, more than one sample in a single large order! The 15mL+ bottles are glass with droppers in the caps, and they've always come well-padded with styrofoam in the box; the samples are all in smaller plastic dripper bottles which I usually have to poke a hole in to get the juice to come out properly. Even though I haven't loved every single flavor I've tried, I've found a few great new flavors from them.
Fast service, but a couple of things knock off some points. First, and this is not usually a problem for me, being a flavor-chaser and a lover of dessert flavors, the juice is too sweet for me. It is good occasionally, but I couldn't do them all the time (I tried 5 different flavors). Secondly, the small bottle tips are too blunt to fit into tight fill spaces. And lastly, the small bottles are just plain hard to squeeze. I had to use spring clamps to fill my tanks, my hands couldn't take it. To be fair, I have only had the sampler (which is awesome that they provide!) which is small bottles, I haven't had any larger bottles which may be different.
The Vapor Chef is an awesome vendor! So many flavors to juice from and small bottles are available so you can sample many flavors for $4 a pop! I tend to buy when there's a sale coming and after ordering 12 different flavors of the sample sizes, I know which to order next when a sale is coming (bigger size). Honey Pearry, Hobbes' Blodd, and Black Pompom. So delicious, keep up the great work Chef! :)
Wow, super-fast shipping! I had my order within a couple of days, complete with a tasty little sampler bottle, and a little green army man guarding the goods.
I have only had the privilege of vaping on a handful of their juices so far, but every one has been delectable, especially the rich, dessert-y flavors. I'm the type who actually enjoys vaping all day on the creamier, sweeter flavors, and the Vapor Chef has thus far hit the mark for the ADVs.
As for packaging, the cardboard box it was shipped in was sturdy, well-taped, and the contents protected with a generous stuffing of packing peanuts. The bottles are glass, which I I prefer over plastic, and the label clearly shows the flavor, ingredients, and the date on which it was mixed.
They'll definitely be seeing much more of my business in the future.
Diverse and strong menu to choose from, filled with unique flavors. Fast and accurate shipping, reasonable pricing and great communication. The most important reason I rant and rave about Vapor Chef however is the accuracy and consistency of the flavors and service. Ordering across months and at different times including holiday seasons with multiple VG/PG mixes and sizes of even sometimes the same flavors the quality control has been phenomenal on the products. Some vendors, it feels like russian roulette from one bottle to the next of the same flavor. Never have to wonder if I've gotten a bad batch here. And well, free samples of new flavors and a growing platoon of little army men are a bonus.
