Fresh Review - This…is not a juice that I was looking forward to at all. I even mulled over the idea of not ordering a sample pack and just ordering every juice except this one, because I just didn’t think that I would like this juice at all, and I hate the idea of giving a bad review because I ordered a juice I should have known better than to order. So, I’ll say it up front: I very, very rarely like tobacco juices. The only time I tend to like them is when the tobacco is extremely light or mostly hidden behind a bunch of other flavors.
With all that said, I end up liking this juice a lot more than I’ve ever liked a primarily tobacco flavored juice. The tobacco here definitely isn’t hidden behind a brighter flavor like menthol or caramel, it is right up front. It’s a very rich and woody tobacco flavor, but it’s so surprisingly smooth. The exhale brings out just a touch of sweetness. After Bacchus and Promised Land my brain wanted to assume it was honey, but I’m honestly not so sure. Whatever it is, it’s light and just sweetens up the mix a little bit. The rest of the exhale is a lighter version of the tobacco with mostly clove for me. A bit more clove than I expected, but it’s very good and mixes extremely well with the tobacco and cardamom. Overall, a really good tobacco juice. Probably not something I’d reorder because there are tons of flavor profiles that I prefer, but this is easily the best tobacco juice that isn’t some kind of RY4 variant that I’ve tried.
Aged Review - This one is pretty consistent. The tobacco may have strengthened just a bit. Because I don’t feel like I’m getting as much clove as I was on a fresh bottle. Still really smooth and lightly sweet. I was talking to wump about this juice, and he thinks the sweetness in this is brown sugar, and after looking for the flavor, I tend to agree. It’s hard to find it in there, as you really get more of the sweetness from it than anything. This is just a really good rich, woody tobacco juice. I’m really glad that I decided to give this one a try. If you are a tobacco juice lover and you haven’t tried this, you should correct that.
