Its been a while since I reviewed an e-liquid – when I find something I like, I stick with it and Apollo’s Tobacco flavour has been doing it for me recently! That said I was curious about their “Classic Tobacco”, so picked up a 24mg, 30ml bottle to try (30ml was a bit adventurous – should have tried a 10ml sampler first). I also ordered a 30ml bottle of their regular “Tobacco” just in case I didn’t like it.
In direct comparison the two bottles couldn’t be more different. While the regular tobacco e-liquid had a familiar lemony shade the classic version was distinct – a vibrant, if not artificial pinkish orange. Unscrewing the childproof cap it was evident this was going to be a flavourful e-liquid. Apollo describes this as a classic full bodied American tobacco blend, but to my nose it has a soapiness to it with a touch of coffee and I didn’t get any tobacco nuances at all. When I think of classic American tobacco my mind conjures up Virginia’s and Burleys, rich earthy Kentucky tones, but not here.
