So back to the juice. Sorry I havent read the entire thread but do you have a picture of the juice?
Though this vendor says it is a "maceration," I am thinking this is another case of too much Tobacco Absolute. Green? Floating sediment?
If this is anything like you experienced,
that is a heavy hand of Tobacco Absolute which is not the same thing as "maceration." This is not my image, but it was taken from similar experiences from a vendor that was selling a "tobacco extract" juice. Technically, TA is an extract (I won't get into the differences), but TA is cheap (in taste and cost) and does a disservice in the conflating of terms to vendors like QuickNic, My Vape Juice, GoodeJuice, Want2Vape, Mountain Oak Vapor, The Plume Room, HouseofLiquids and Vaperite who do bang-up jobs on maceration (that is not the extent of NET vendors, but those are some of the maceration vendors).
As an aside, with the new(er) vendor Velvet Cloud Vapor who makes their own Tobacco Absolute in-house from more quality tobacco and with more discernible tastes, I can't say that all TA is the same, but unless we're talking about VCV, all TA is the same.
As an aside, to see what a good use of regular TA can be, not just from a vendor that makes in-house, but that uses standard TA, see Mom and Pops Tobacco Haze or Moondrop's Smith Barn Sticks. They did not just throw some TA in PG/VG but the used it in a very creative way to make a juice that had some semblance of TA and a whole lot of other character. Some ingredients, like TA, ain't meant to go solo.
Here are the photos, WOW, I didnt think this post would turn into a school yard brawl

"me, I'm on the side of the Angels............ but the Devil is my best friend"
But onto that, uhh, I guess you could call it "eliquid?" That looks like some terrible stuff. I hope people seeing this don't think that's what to expect from NETs! That is TERRIBLE. You notice how oily it looks? That is a sign of Tobacco Absolute. But that is sooooooooooo dark I imagine they did some other silly stuff as well. I have had just about every NET that is not hiding in some corner out there and I have never, ever had a juice that looked like that! Not. Even. Close.
It looks like MOLD! Ack. You were more than brave to even try it. A google search on Richard, Catskill Mountain, etc. IS VERY REVEALING! There is a pretty good YouTube video on this vendor: Catskill Mountain Vapor Store: Rainbow Sherbet & Vendor Review - YouTube
Please note that he is banned here, and in other forums.
yeah the bickering is over sorry about that guys.
But that green is a red flag to me. usually when you use cheap product and isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) to extract the oils that's the end product. it looks too familiar to let it pass by me. im most certain that it was very bad product with a isopropyl extraction. But I might be wrong. Another way for it to be green is when he uses the same product over and over again and the plants chlorophyll becomes weak and is then extracted after numerous times therefore it turns green
