    Default Black Label concentrates

    Just a heads up to let you all know that we shipped the first batch of 10ml Black Label flavour concentrates (in all 7 flavours,) to TW UK yesterday, so they should be on the site later today or tomorrow

    We shipped out a batch of the Black Label concentrates for TW US yesterday, so expect to see them on the US website in the next week or 2.

    Enjoy!

    I've just received my order from TW with the complete range of black label concentrates.
    I will try only a flavour per day to better test them.
    Well, i started with the Real Tabs and i've to say i'm really impressed.
    this is maybe the first commercial flavour i ever tried that is NOT too sweet.
    Vaping this thing is really close to smoking real tobacco, in particular the aftertaste reminds me when i was smoking analogues.

    So, thumbs up for Nick, you made a great job with this tobacco flavour.

    A couple of question for Nick, i won't ask you the formula of course but... is there any Tobacco Absolute in the Real Tabs?
    It reminds me TA a bit, but this flavour is even better.
    What % of real tabs concentrate you suggest to use on the mix? I see 10-25% on the label but it seems to me 6% is strong enough.

    The volatiles are fractionated out, so it would probably be classed as essential oil rather than an absolute, but yes, it's tobacco-based. Glad you like it

    I mix the premixed BL juices at 10%, but some of the folks on the TW forum like it stronger - as ever, personal preferences can vary wildly
    One size never fits all, so you can never please all the people all the time with a premixed juice - that's why we're so committed to making all the concentrates available for home mixing

    Thanks for your reply Nick,
    i'm checking Rich Pipe right now and it's a very nice sweety-chocolatey tobacco pipe vape.
    Not for an all day vape imho but very pleasant and relaxing indeed.
    it gets the sweet spot at 5% to me.

    Black Label flavorings (and ejuice) are in US now. Order in.... Interested in the 'take' on Hylton, Rich Pipe esp. Grabbed a Sour Cherry too because you (Nick), said it had a medicinal aspect - Cheracol was a childhood flavorite Pretty sure it had codeine. But there was a 'flinty' (licking a wet stone) note too that I liked - sometimes I can taste that in certain red wines - Napa's Shafer mainly.

    I think you'll like the Sour Cherry - your description sounds awfully like the way folks who don't like the Sour Cherry describe it (it does have a slightly medicinal tang to it, which you either like or don't )

    The Caramel is sweeter than the Real Tabs, with a touch of caramel. The Rich Pipe is quite sweet and smooth, with notes of toffee, chocolate and nut overlaid on a rich tobacco base (that does uncannily make it sound more like a posh biscuit than an ejuice, I know )
    A lot of the initial reviewers were disappointed when they saw what they'd been sent, and thought they wouldn't like it because it was "Pipe", but most of them did like it when they tried it (why does everyone think pipe smokers only appreciate rank "bonfire" flavours that stink like burning socks? ) Hope you like it too.

    lol. Shouldn't be long. It's shipped. Thanks for the tasting notes. And I don't know about the pipe bias. Actually, I've found that most cigars don't taste as bad as they smell and most pipe tobacco doesn't taste as good as it smells second hand, but there are many exceptions to that.

    Wondering if you ever tried the disposable Ruyan cigar - that is a unique and good, imo, tobacco taste. Also, today, I sold some of the old style Tennessee Cure from JC that I had to someone who wanted it more than I... but wondering if you ever tried that? There's a 'void' in that demand, since the 'new formulation' wasn't even close. It was as well loved as RY4 (and hated - seems that's how that goes). But it was a special ejuice that had many prominant notes going on - that 'non-virginia flue cured' but the true 'fire cured' taste from that region in the US, as well as just the slightest hint of wintergreen (which I don't like normally) and some cherry or almond. Made for a rather good vape and also not so sweet.

    I'm holding out hope for the Hylton - wife's favorite vape. She still is smoking a few cigarettes, which is ok but I'm guessing she isn't getting the flavor hit that I am. If it's close with the flavoring I think I'll be able to tweak a batch that might suit her. So far all other hilton flavorings (not many out there) have fallen short. I taste chocolate in Hilton as does she, so perhaps the others might be even closer. I get vanilla in Kent, vanilla and coconut in most Marlboros.... which end up being too sweet. Except for Real Tabs and the non-tobacco/tobacco HR, I'm really enjoying the Absinthe and Ylang Ylang more and more. Lotus flower closing in as well. It's a great variety to have. And it will be hard for new flavors to break into that level, but, if anyone can do it.....

    Not sure I've had the genuine Ruyan, but I'm a big fan of the Farsee #2s (panatella-sized - I find the big cigars uncomfortable to hold in the mouth, since they have a hard plastic mouthpiece, unlike the yielding springiness of bunched leaves in an analog cigar.) The flavour is nice and nutty, and not too tobacco-y.
    I've also tried the Janty TAWCs, and while the RY4 juice is nice, the auto switches are crap (just can't get a decent draw, since you have to suck so hard.)

    Never tried it, though I used to like the bestecigs.com 'Flue Cured' (before I went off tobacco flavours.)

    Sounds nice.

    We have a Marlbury Black Label flavour coming out later this month - as well as a few others: Cherry Cheroot, Cuban Cigar, Gallois (French-style Turkish with notes of vervain and pepper,) and Aromatic (Clan-style pipe blend, with notes of eucalyptus, wintergreen and pine.)
    Concentrates first, and hopefully premixed to follow (we'll need to get more labels designed and printed for these, since the premixed labels aren't produced inhouse.)

    I'll do my best

    Ooh..this is great Nick, i'm looking forward to checking these new tobacco's.
    I hope there will be a non-sweet one...
    for the ones like me that like not-sugary-tobacco juices there's not much choice around.
    But i'm quite happy with Real Tabs at the moment
