Comments on the packaging
It is today at the Alfortvillaise Roykin House to make its appearance in the magazines of Vapelier. A known manufacturer, serious and whose many collections are based on simple themes and, in general, quite fun.
We will open the ball with the range "Legend", a range focused around tobacco in all its forms and by a first reference taken at random (I stuck in my hat), I named: "El Comandante". Let's admit that it already feels good bar-style tobacco!
The packaging is up to the name of the range and presents very well. In 30ml for now, El Comandante comes in 0, 6, 11, 16 and 19mg / ml of nicotine, which gives a wide range for any vaping, beginner or not, is found there. The base used has a PG / VG ratio of 60 / 40, considered to be the healthiest and already guarantees its compatibility with any evaporation system.
The informative mentions are in the norms and everything seems to be drawn for the best. Nevertheless, I must specify that the products of this range are devoid of seal of inviolability or first use, as you please. It is a damaging breach of the credibility of the product that brings us back to the prehistory of the vape. A simple plastic cap was enough, though.
By cons, it will be the only defect, I warn you in advance, but it will inevitably graze the final score.

Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects
All the more shame indeed because for the rest, Roykin behaves like an excellent student and gives voice on all the tones to comply with current standards and provides a very good security service.
The regulatory band is there, there is no one missing. Not a logo, not a warning. It's perfect. Sometimes at the limit of visibility for those who, like me, have swapped their eagle eyes for a mole look. But it reads without the need to go out the magnifying glass, as I have already done in other brands.
We note the presence of a lot number supported by a deadline for optimal use. It's perfect!

Vapelier's note regarding packaging with regard to juice category: 5 / 5
Comments on the packaging
A very traditional transparent glass bottle is not new. But the presence of a label beautifully carved cigar ring (a circle surrounded by two flat rectangular dishes) comes up and give a feeling of class to all.
Mentions of the product, range and manufacturer are printed in brilliant silver, creating an inclusion effect and the entire label is circled by a thread of the same color and all on a black background please . This undeniably comes to pose the product as an elegant object, gentleman or lady, a congruent potion for vaping in luxury.
This for an entry-level fare, I can only applaud Roykin.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 5 / 5
Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
Let's be honest, we are between us, El Comandante is primarily for cigar lovers.
Indeed, there is immediately a powerful load of deep and dark tobacco with a heavy hit, just tinged with a few spices, like clove, to accentuate the line. It's good, realistic and lovers of this type of tobacco will be thrilled.
But, behind the bitterness of the tobacco that sometimes conveys some cocoa swirls certainly inherent to the aroma itself, we find the sweetness of a vanilla twist, more feminine for once, which smooths perfectly the moment in the turning into greedy tobacco, a little old-fashioned, but still terribly effective.
A good juice, well put in recipe, in perfect balance between the power and the grace. And most importantly, an e-liquid that you will be able to vape with envy because it is never disgusting.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
It's a tobacco and, in addition, 60 / 40. This is to say the freedom you have to make it spin in any atomizer. The power does not scare him, the heat either. So, treat yourself by opening the windows if you do not want to see bobonne reapplied by shouting "Chériiiiiiiiiiii, you took again to smoke ??????????".

My mood ticket on this juice
An excellent first contact with the range "Legend" with El Comandante who presents himself as a barbudo khaki but who will be better for these gentlemen of Rotary. And all for the price of an e-liquid whipped cream with strawberry base! She is not beautiful life ???
We will retain all the same, behind a sumptuous appearance, a subtle, complex and powerful taste and a chapter of almost perfect security, the absence of a protection of first opening which alters the final note which could have allowed him to reach the level it deserves.
Strongly following, all the same!
