TW Patriot Range KaMeL (18mg) June 2010
I could never get on with the tobacco flavours – just not my ‘cup of tea’ I’m afraid. Even the TW 555/State Express, I need to mix it with menthol and VG which, as luck would have it, has turned into one of my favourite vapes – the nutty aroma and the menthol seems to work very well together. Still, with a completely open mind, here’s my take on the KaMeL…..
Equipment – DSE901, new / primed atomiser, fully-charged 180mAh auto batteries, cartridge.
Colour of liquid – Clear light amber
Smell of liquid – Kitchen floor disinfectant, with a hint of aniseed.
Flavour / Taste – Almost immediately, I noticed that my tongue had been overwhelmed by a tingling sensation and, once that diminishes, along comes a floral / herbal taste. The whole mouth then feels like it has been stuffed with orange peel, making it seem very dry. Strangely enough, the exhale tries its best to refresh the mouth but fails somewhat because of the overpoweringly strong and dry citrus aftertaste – then the tingling tongue makes a brief encore.… 4/10
Throat Hit – With all that’s going on in the Flavour / Taste department, it could be possible to miss any throat hit but, no, it gives you a fairly good whack after exhale – great for an 18mg…..8/10
Vapour Content – To me, the saving grace of this juice is the vapour production – very good for a juice of this type….. 8/10
In Summary – Appreciating that this is quite a complex liquid but, sorry folks, this one didn’t do much for me at all in terms of flavour – even 10 mins after using it I’ve still got quite a dry taste in my mouth. It will certainly have its fans though and fair play to it - I liked the throat hit I experienced after the exhale and the vapour content is very pleasing. Although not a total disaster, the flavour is just not for me and the only advice I can offer with KaMeL is, when vaping it, have a chilled glass of water or a beer on stand-by. Chances are that you’ll need it…… 6.67/10
Happy vaping everyone…….
