Apollo Classic Tobacco Review

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.

Today I’ll be sampling the delights of Liquid Purity available exclusively from Liberro, a name you can trust for quality (ISO9001 accredited) and customer service – I should know I’ve purchased quite a few liquids and e-cig bits from them since 2008 (back when they were known as e-cigs.co.uk).

I recently received six 10ml sample bottles (various flavours), all High, 1.8% nicotine (or 18mg in old money).

I’ll start off with an interesting take on a semi traditional tobacco flavour called Knightsbridge.

Personally speaking of all the Apollo tobacco flavour e-liquids I’ve tried recently its somewhat ironic that my favourite is the one left till last! And funnily enough its just the regular “Tobacco” at that.

All the juices reviewed so far have been 24mg (extra high) strength and no change here. It ticks all the boxes not too strong, nor too weak and the ideal choice for throat hit and average nicotine needs.

Opening up the childproof cap, the aroma is less striking than RY4 and definitely less pungent than Sahara. Its decidedly tobacco (sounds stupid I know considering it is tobacco flavour), but it really does have a whiff of fresh tobacco leaves. There is a sweet edge to it, but not overpowering from a scent perspective.

Visually, it has a lemony hue and is slightly thinner than both the RY4 and Sahara e-liquids. Again it’s a Propylene Glycol (PG) based juice with added Glycerin. Its very well suited for use in a clearomizer as thicker juices tend to restrict the internal wicks absorption rate. This juice seems to flow effortlessly and produces plenty of thick vapour as a result.

Apollo RY4 Review

Apollo RY4 E-Liquid

RY4 is a very popular e-liquid combining a subtle blend of tobacco, vanilla and caramel flavours. Its an ideal starter liquid, as its not at all harsh and produces a decent amount of vapour.

The somewhat unusual “RY4” designation originates from the company Ruyan (hence the “RY“), but these days numerous variations are produced by different manufacturers all with their own take on the “RY” theme. Incidentally, you may find RY1, RY2, RY3 and RY4 for sale elsewhere which range in delicacy and sweetness, but RY4 is by far the most popular and the best all-rounder in my opinion.

I’ve tried RY4 before, but not Apollo’s version of this classic.
