Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice

Generally a tobacco e-liquid with clove is very typical cigar or brown well-bodied.
If, as in the culinary arts, the spice can raise a dish, it must also be used sparingly. Kretek is a classic, in any case presented as such in the catalog Nhoss. Only, feeling a tobacco aroma of the assembly is a challenge. Totally lacking in taste or certainly annihilated later in the composition, the recipe can not convince.
As claimed, there is a combination of citrus and freshness but all this is far too dominated by this famous clove.

Usually, juices of this type are strong and full-bodied to boost the tobacco side. Here, the bias is to associate the full-bodied with a citrus and fresh side. Kretek goes off the beaten track and that, we can not blame him.

My bottles received for this evaluation being devoid of nicotine, I can not judge the hit throat. As for the aromatic power, if it is moderate, the flavor of the juice lingers a good moment in the mouth and guess .... It's spicy.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting

Sold exclusively at tobacconists, Nhoss Kretek is a potion well suited to capsule systems found mostly in tobacconists.
A starter kit with modest resistance will do just fine.
Personally, in order to get all the quintessence of the recipe, I stay with my faithful mini dripper - a Hobbit Focusecig 17 diameter with reduced airflow - which allows me to better evaluate this type of juice.

Recommended Moments

  • Recommended times of day: Overnight for insomniacs
  • Can this juice be recommended as an All Day Vape: No

Overall average (excluding packaging) of the Vapelier for this juice: 3.76 / 5 3.8 5 out of stars

My mood ticket on this juice

If the work done by Nhoss is not criticizable, the recipe of Classic Kretek hardly convincing. The potion will certainly find its public, restricted, but will not succeed to convert the greatest number.
The majority of our customers come from tobacconists and novice vapers who have not yet had the opportunity to test a lot of e-liquids but the recipe is, in my opinion, far too special to win.

The potion is very much dominated by clove whereas this one is in category "tobacco". The marriage or at least the association of citrus and a certain freshness have completed annihilating any perception or sensation of vapping a composition belonging to the family mentioned above. The rest in the mouth and the lingering sensation will only be suitable for lovers of the famous spice.

See you soon for new hazy adventures,

About the Author

Follower of tobacco vape and rather "tight" I do not balk at good gourmets of clouders. I love the flavor-oriented drippers but am very curious about the developments of our shared passion for personal vaporizers. Good reasons for making my modest contribution here, right?
