Maker's description: This sensational blend gives a new meaning to the work “Luxurious.” Inventive and mind-blowing, the Aficionado is a gourmet selection of luscious European Custard Flavors blended to perfection for extra smoothness and complexity. One taste of this delicate blend will send you into torments of delight.
Immediately upon opening the standard 30mL dropper bottle, I was greeted with an intense aroma of vanilla. As an avid cook, I have used a lot of different vanillas, from the cheapest imitation to some very expensive imports. The scent of this juice is as enticing as any of the very best vanilla I have ever used. This is literally the best-smelling juice I have ever had, hands down.
So... how does it taste? The scent set the bar awfully high, so I was skeptical that the flavor of the juice could live up to that standard. I am happy to report that it did.
The maker's description is a bit flowery, but it's not wrong. This is a wonderfully rich, creamy vanilla, with the depth of flavor one would expect from a good custard. The slightly dark, caramelized flavor typical of cooked custard is present, but very subtle, resulting in a slightly lighter flavor than many vanilla custard juices. The vanilla flavor itself is absolutely amazing, evoking the very finest imported vanilla I've used.
All-Day Vape? Absolutely, if it weren't so bloody expensive. A bit richer than 10th Planet's excellent Vanilla Mousse, a bit lighter than my favorite vanilla custard, King's Custard by Joker EJuice, Aficionado delivers excellent flavor all day.
