Let it steep! (02 October 2017)
After kicking the cigarettes I wasn't a huge fan of pure tobacco flavors but the combination of caramel and cream intrigued me so I ordered a 10ml (6mg nic) bottle almost 2 months ago. The flavor I experienced then didn't sit quite right with me as I tasted way too much tobacco for my liking. So I put the bottle back into its box and put it into a cabinet. Until last night.
Oh man am I glad I didn't reject this one at first glance! This is now my go-to with my morning coffee :D I'm vaping it on a SMOK Spiral 0.6 ohm (found 28W to be the sweet spot). If only words would do justice to the flavors of this juice.
Inhale; Smooth, luscious, creamy caramel. It's sweet but not overpowering. The creamy caramel is perfectly balanced and you can taste a very subtle and pleasant hint of tobacco in the background. The tobacco is far from "in-your-face" as I thought it was when first opening the bottle, steeping it seems to have toned down this flavor immensely and made it tie all flavors together in wonderful harmony.
Exhale; Again, creamy caramel and pale hint of tobacco but now you also get the coconut tone. At first I couldn't pinpoint the coconut - I actually had to look at the description to see what that flavor I tasted was. When you know it's actually coconut then it makes sense cause your taste buds will try to identify the half-tropical aspect of this complex liquid.
No throat hit on the 6mg nic, it's just very smooth and creamy. Great clouds and tons of taste! Goes purrfectly with my half bitter morning coffee and I find myself chain vaping simply because I can't get enough of the creamy sweetness. I would however highly recommend that you let it steep for a few weeks, then put it on a tank and mod that allows you to regulate the wattage. I've tried several liquids from Grand Reserve and they all have something in common - they are rich, high-end liquids that deserves to be vaped and enjoyed to its fullest on something else than a AIO or pen styled device. Don't get me wrong, I've tried this juice on a eGo AIO 1.0 ohm and its alright, its good and sweet but nothing spectacular. It is however transformed when put on a mod. Fantastic juice, will buy again!
