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.
I was skeptical at first, but after picking up a 30ml bottle of 24mg nic salts and giving it a shot it has quickly grown into one of my ADVs. It is fruity, but not overly fruity or sweet. It has a nice harmony with the flavors used. Im currently basing this off of my own trial using a Smok Badge Pod System
Nice and smooth with a gentle, creamy curl at the end.
It does have the shaved ice flavor, just to get that out of the way. As someone who mostly goes in cold, I must have glossed over the watermelon in the write ups because it was unexpected but not unpleasant. And that’s the thing: this is a watermelon vape. Pretty delicious. Or for those of us modernists who like to call beverages by color vice flavor, e.g. asking for some purple, red, or blue “drank” and not fruit punch or grape, this is definitely a “red” as “blood” would suggest.
Another selection that would go great with a bit of ice. The finish is completely different, I’d almost describe it as chewy, soft, or springy. Worth ordering a sample.
|Flavor Accuracy||5 /5|
Rich and smooth, and really without any issues. Following the ad copy, yes, there’s caramel and yes, its full of pipe tobacco depth.
When I made my last order from Vapor Chef, I was seeking a RY4 caramel anything, having been without for months. This fit the bill for caramel. Flavor accuracy as described would be a 5.
If you’re looking for tobaccos, I highly recommend VC’s Slartibartfast. Watson is nice, though. (And great choice of name.)
“He ain’t heavy, he’s my little brudder.”
Tastes nice, but could take flight after a little re-mixing with mint. Otherwise, it’s a great base.
However in that case, you would have Vapor Chef’s/Keystone Vapor’s Neshaminy Creek, which is a high ‘4’ around here.
It’s as if Pear Brandy is hanging from N.C.’s bicep saying, “I wanna grow up big like you!”
The brandy is faint. This juice is good, but needs more punch. I will be mixing it with menthol. I’m not a mint guy, and maybe it’s just the heat around here that’s getting to me, but my instincts are overwhelmingly saying, “Creek!”
Accurately named flavor. I got this as a sample and will order some next time. Vaped this at 29-33 watts, the flavor blend seemed best around 30-31 watts.
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.
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.
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.
