The Opus line is undoubtedly one of the best experiences I've had vaping, so when they came out with a new entry I had to get my hands on it. I hope The Vape Kitchen continues this trend and releases Opus 6-20 :)
Opus 5 certainly earns it's place in the line up. On a blind taste test I thought this kind of reminded me of an earl grey tea, but I've had TVK's Earl Grey, and this wasn't quite that. This was more the sweet kind with the bergamot.
I looked at the description and yep, I was pretty far off. That's the thing with Opus though, they are on purpose taking building blocks that aren't often used to create something new and original. I still maintain that this has a slight tea vibe to it, the orange blossom was what I was attributing to the bergamot. The lavender here is present, but not overpowering, it gives a very gentle floral touch to the mix which really adds a nice touch. You do pick out the clover honey at the end of the exhale, along with just a very tangy / fruity / creamy note that is near impossible to describe but it's so heavenly. I love tangy, and this is spectacular.
It's a great flavor, and yes, extremely hard to describe. The flavor intensity is a 6 out of 10 and the saffron infused VG really brings the signature mouth-feel and satiny smoothness to this (as well as some satisfying cloud production). I can't stop vaping this, it's just so unique and inviting. Like the others, it's mixed in such a way that you get different subtleties each time you vape it. It's complex but in a more mysterious way.
Highly recommend this one. It has a wonderful fruity/sweet note to it, a soft floral note, a dash of sweet cream and a subtle but perfect clover honey in there. It's not listed but I still get reminded of a tea when vaping this, just not as intense of a tea as those found in the Royal Tea line from TVK. It has that gourmet feel like the other Opus flavors, but is more sweet and tangy. The milk and honey here are done in a way I can guarantee you've never experienced before.
