First, I want to thank Eric for sending me 2 samples. I received them quickly, too.
I got Frisco and Tampa, 16mg. nic. Each bottle came in it's own little white box, too.
I am not usually a tobacco vaporer, but I dislike overly sweet bakery stuff so I thought I'd give these a try. I'm so glad I did!
Whatever the tobacco base that is used certainly agrees with me. I really like this base. Must be a very good PG/VG balance, too, because usually I can taste PG and I can't stand the smell or taste of PG. That didn't happen to me with Vapor Station juice. (Although when available, I will order in 100% or high VG ). This juice will not kill your atty....it's got some hue to it but overall they are light colored and not gloppy at all.
I vaped these without steeping, there was no alcohol or chemical smell or taste. I do not know what further steeping would do to the jucies as I've not done it.
Frisco could very well be my all day vape. I understand the following now. It's very smooth....none of that harsh scratchyness that I find in many tobacco juices. And lightly sweetly nutty, but not overly so. I let my brother try it too, and he mostly vapes bobas bounty and said he could switch to this easily as an all day vape, too. We both like smooth and mellow, and Frisco fits the bill.
Tampa: described as Virginia and white burley--- for me was a little more intense on the inhale, robust, and a slightly sour taste for me on inhale (which was something that didn't appeal to me but maybe it is corn taste?) but sweeter on the exhale...tasted similar to an analog to me. That makes sense, as it really can be an analog replicant. It was Grimm Green's favorite vape last year, and Vapenstein loved it, too, so I guess there is a pretty big following on this Tampa.
The pricing is very reasonable, too. Happy to have discovered this company, I will be ordering when the VG versions are available again.
