    Default *HALO* Captain Jack

    I really like Halo juices. Tribeca, Freedom Juice, Torque56 ALL GREAT! I even appreciate Smooth8 if ever in the mood for ginger lol. BUT... I just recieved a sample of Captain Jack. The only other Captain Jack I have tried was from vaporsetc and I liked it. So here is my review of CAPTAIN JACK from HALO.

    First impressions:
    Opened bottle and gently smelled. Right off the bat I KNEW I recognized this scent. Couldnt peg it for about 5 minutes. Perfumey and flowery. Then it came to me, ROSES! This smelled like fresh rose petals to me. Very strong scent.

    First vape:
    Wow.....Tastes just like it smells. Like a sweet rose. Maybe if rose petals were soaked in maraschino cherry juice. Very flowery/maraschino cherry. For a second I thought it was close to the center of a chocolate covered cherry. Interesting

    After about 2 hours:
    Really trying to like this stuff but am very sick of the flavor. But still trying to dig it.

    One week later:
    I have vaped this on and off for a week and have tried to get into it but honestly....WAY too flowery/perfumey for me. I see where they were going with the "cherry pipe tobacco" type thing but there is just not enough tobacco and way too much flower bed. Great juice! Just bad flavor.

    Conclusion:
    Vapor, TH, quality of actual juice = GREAT, Tastes very clean like all Halo
    FLAVOR = Way to perfumey and over powered

    ------------ vaped on Riva510 with Boge LR 2.0 ohm AND regular Cartomizers --------------------

    Careful....I get zero flower/rose/whatever from this juice. It's a very strong flavor, for sure, with a bit of that halo chemical underpinning, but no roses for me. I've been trying to figure out what the hell it tastes like for a week now. I get leather, nondescript dark fruit, something with a bit of zing and something mellow. This is a strange juice: it's somehow both light, sparkly and dark at the same time. It's got that great Halo base so it performs like nobody's business. I can't take much of this at one time, it's definitely an end-of-the-day, dessert-type vape. I like it.

    Ah, but every other flavor I've tried from Halo, that wasn't straight menthol, had a floral/perfumey taste to me for the exception of Malibu, which tasted okay. Thus why it's the only Halo juice I still have on my shelf. Tiki Juice was okay, but, I couldn't vape it all day. Perhaps someday I'll give Halo another go, but, probably not anytime soon. I've found that my tastes changed substantially since I started vaping, maybe they'll change again *shrug*

    Wow, hard for me to taste "flowers" in this no matter how hard I try. Doesn't smell like roses/flowers either.

    Just getting a nice strong pipe flavor with a Cavendish feel.

    I really like this flavor, and think this review is way off.

    In your opinion. You're a vet, you should know by now that everyone tastes differently. I've had a similar reaction with other Halo flavors thus I do not believe that the review is way off, regardless if I've actually tried the juice or not.

    Of course it is only my opinion, and I certainly agree that taste is extremely subjective.

    I assumed "think this review is way off" made it clear that it was my opinion.

    Maybe "think my interpretation of the flavor is way different" would have been more appropriate.

    Picked up my latest sampler pack from Halo a couple of days ago and it included the Cpt Jack free sample.

    Just started vaping this a few hours ago. I'm completely at a loss to describe it...other than 'interesting' I guess. I (ymmv) really enjoy it. I get a touch of 'floral' but not to the extreme as to describe it as perfume-sh. There's a lingering after taste that I can't quite place, but tastes very familiar.
    Vaping at 3.7 on a 1.8 LR:
    TH 7/10
    Vapor 9/10 (clouds up my cube as does everything from Halo
    Taste Don't think there will be too many on the fence..a like-it or hate-it taste. I'm in the like camp as of Day 1.
