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.
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.
