I've been testing this one out using a Platinum 901 with USB Passthrough and on the road with a battery.

At 36mg this is producing plenty of vapour and giving a good throat hit, but a little harsh. Its not as harsh as the sweat flavours and for me it is one i can vape with out too much complaint, i do tent to find this with the higher nic tobocco flavours. I do have to keep putting it down as it does go straight to my head!

Flavour wise well its a tobacco taste but for me not as good at the likes of Hilton and British Bull Dog. I have tried a sample of 'Tobacco' (not too sure what make) and its very similar in taste to this. Can't really go into anymore detail to describe it to be honest.

I took this one into the Pub with me and a mate who smokes Golden Tobacco rollies and also likes to sample the different flavours had a go. He found it far too harsh and didn't really like the taste of it (he's a big fan of the BB even though he doesn't yet own an e-cig). Not tried Golden Tobacco rollies for a long time so can't really compare it to these.

I vaped this along side the lemon flavour and found myself keep coming back to this one rather than the lemon. If you prefer just a good tobacco type taste thats got a good hit to it (no gimmicky flavours) then this could well be the one for you.

Would i continue to smoke it? At 18mg no problem. 36mg is just too strong and a little on the harsh side for me.

Would i buy it? If Hilton was out of stock then yes. At the minute these type of flavours are doing it for me rather than the sweet style flavours, but i can see myself buying anything higher than 18mg.

Flavour: 6.5/10
Flavour Strength: 7/10
Vapor: 9/10
Throat Hit: 7/10 (36mg harsh hit- 9/10, 18mg - just right  :))

hi all,

here are my thoughts on the virginia:-

the juice is fairly light brown in colour and has no nasties floating about in it and when taking of the lid you get a pretty nice tobacco aroma, though not too strong. the liquid itself is fairly runny, not thick at all.

weapon of choice: TITAN


using a freshly filled titan cart with the 18mg, rather than direct dripping i found the virginia to have a pretty nice, fairly stong taste of tobacco. i would definitely say it is very similar to the taste you get when smoking a Golden Tobacco roll up cigarette. i know it sounds odd, but i would describe it as a wet tobacco taste. that doesnt mean i find it weak or wimpy in taste! what i mean is that it makes my mouth feel like ive had a swig of water at the same time as taking a drag (thats a really rubbish description but i dont know how else to explain it!)
overall, pretty nice! a sure winner for those who enjoy rolling tobacco.

taste using the 36mg was still as nice tasting as the 18mg


the vapour produced was good but not overly thick how i like it. plenty enough to be able to blow some nice rings which have some weight behind them!

no difference in vapour production between the 18mg and 36mg

throat hit

i thought the virginia in the 18mg provided a very satisfactory throat hit indeed. a real nice "kick" but not too harsh. the 36mg provided the same nice kick but was definitely harsher on the throat than the 18mg.

in summary

taste: 8 out of 10

vapour: 7 out of 10

throat hit: 8 out of 10

which gives an average total score of:-

7.5 out of 10

Equipment: For this one I used my pen style with usb passthrough and an evo,  I’ve not had much luck with my minis of late, and am slowly consolidating through natural deteriation.

Colour – Very pale,
Odour – Almost nil,
Viscosity – Pretty thin

Vapour – 7/10
Vapour Odour – again almost  nil,
Quantity – A little less than others I’ve tried recently.

Taste 6/10
To be honest, I found this one of the hardest so far to describe. There is a familiarity, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. It doesn’t remind me of Golden Tobacco (thankfully – cos I can’t stand it), but I guess there is a tobacco like quality to it, but it just doesn’t stand out. Not one of my favourites.

Hit 7/10
Pretty punchy throat hit especially in the 36,g sample. But without the flavour it seems to miss the spot.

Would I buy it?
I could see this being a good base for doing your own menthol or similar or for toning down an over zealous flavour. But for a general use, no I wouldn’t

Verdict – 6/10
I just wasn’t sure about this flavour. I kept wanting to like it, and it certainly had a throat hit, but it seemed to be lacking…. something (I just don’t know what). However as a mixer with a tobacco overtone, it might be just the thing.

TW Virginia

E-cig used was a Titan

Ok these are the ones i look foreward to reviewing being a fan of tobacco flavours

A pronounced tobacco aroma upon opening the bottle, very light brown colouring on the virginia and quite thin in viscosity (be careful whilst dripping)
i loaded up the Titan cart with the 36mg and took a long slow draw, this thing has a kick like a mule and a definite smoothness to the flavour, it's not quite hand rolling tobacco but it comes pretty close, now bear in mind the State Express, Hilton and Camel all have a slightly sweet nutty taste to them while this is straight up tobacco in my opinion,

Having said all this, this isn't one of my favourite flavours now, i much prefer the State Express because it has a fuller sweeter nuttier flavour, a thing a real cig couldn't come close too, but as a plain simple tobacco taste i do recommend this one, the vapour is very good but by no means the best, very satisfying though, i would and have bought this flavour since.

The 18mg was also a surprise because it still gives a kick, harder than i had imagined, if your a low tar smoker i think this would serve you well

Throat Hit  9/10
Vapour      8/10
Flavour     8/10
