Comments on the packaging
To accompany the release of the myblu battery (see review here), blu has developed a range of eleven different tastes to meet the expectations of primavapoteurs. This is the first collection of badged blu capsules and it's a safe bet that the American giant will not stop there.
In any case, when you buy your kit, the very first e-liquid you will have is the Classic since a capsule is included with the device. It therefore seemed normal to begin our reviews of the range by this opus, directly for the first smoky emotions of the smoker.
The capsule is made of plastic and contains 1.5ml of e-liquid, a 1.3Ω resistor and cotton as a capillary. It is surmounted, as one might expect, from a flat mouthpiece. The packaging with two capsules is sold 7 €, which places de facto in the high end of the category. It is available in the network of tobacconists as well as in some specialized shops as Eway.
The available nicotine levels are 0, 8 and 16mg / ml. Given the preferred target of the device, we could have expected a higher rate such as 19mg / ml to satisfy the heaviest smokers and an intermediate rate of 12mg / ml to smooth the hole between 16 and 8 which is when even a not wide enough.
Mounted on a base of 65 / 35 ratio PG / VG, the liquid is ready to enter the arena and conquer the most recalcitrant smokers.

Vapelier's note regarding the respect of various conformities (except religious): 4.75 / 5
Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects
In terms of security, the brand ensures an excellent rating by taking good care to pass the essential information on the box on each of the capsules. This is the case of the lot number, the name of the juice and the nicotine level.
The box itself contains an explanatory note including the warning of rigor. It displays the nicotine percentage, which is not essentially a mistake but a little change the habits made by manufacturers in recent times and therefore by informed consumers.
Everything would be perfect if the production laboratory was indicated but do not complain, we have here a security service certainly perfectible but largely at the level of public expectations.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 4 / 5
Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
Surprising! I was expecting an umpteenth declination of the tobaccos for beginners that we generally find in the category but we are dealing here with a tobacco of great beauty that is better than fulfilling its role.
The Classic is a traditional American blend that blends with virginia, burley and a touch of oriental tobacco. Everything is realistic, effective and does not overlook the legitimate bitterness that one is entitled to expect from a tobacco e-liquid. Thus, the flavourists made sure not to force the hand on the sweet aspects and, if it persists enough to lighten the bitterness, it is due to the emulation of oriental tobacco whose sugar level is globally higher than that of others.
Ephemeral notes of cocoa are sometimes inviting in the mouth, signs that the liquid has been precisely mounted and a rather flattering woody side ensures the connection between all the elements.
It is interesting, very pleasant to vape and the taste will not be a drag for a smoker, an e-liquid that fills all the checkboxes in its category.
Appreciation of the juice tasting
- What kind of hit did you feel? strong
Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
Very effective on a coffee, the Classic will also steam in allday because its sugar level is not enough marked to tire. Powerful enough hit, the bias will be well suited to a smoker on track.
The volume of steam, dependent on the myblu system, is not very dense but will be very suitable for a primotapower in the sense that it corresponds more or less to a jet of cigarette smoke.
The draw is tight, MTL by vocation but here too, is perfect for the target audience. The ideal is to shoot, like on a pipe, long and sweet puffs to soak up the flavors.
- Recommended Moments of the Day: Morning, Morning - Breakfast coffee, Aperitif, End of lunch / dinner with a coffee, End of lunch / dinner with a digestive, All the afternoon during the activities of everyone, Early evening to relax with a drink, Late night with or without herbal tea, Night for insomniacs
- Can this juice be recommended as an All Day Vape: Yes
Overall average (excluding packaging) of the Vapelier for this juice: 4.58 / 5
My mood ticket on this juice
For the helmsman of the range, the one that comes with the starter kit, we have a great success in tobacco. Rather typical and realistic, he assumes the inherent aspects of Nicot's herb by being subtle, strong, a bit bitter as it should and sweet without excess.
A balanced tobacco, of American orientation, which will thus find its amateurs in the smokers of blend of the same name. To value a Top Juice deserved by a perfect balance and a more credible alternative to smoked tobacco.
