Comments on the packaging

The BordO2 Classic range is no less than thirty flavors intended primarily for new vapers but not only ...
Why ? Because the juices of this category have always been more fluid fluids, simpler and evolving perfectly in materials with smaller resistances so typically starters kits judiciously offered to first-time buyers.

This clientele is also more in quitting smoking in search of complex tastes and "worked", the taste buds are not yet completely detoxified tobacco.
Yes, but now, the vape is democratized, like everything else.
Today's customer is more demanding and this taste category is no longer satisfied with offering only unique flavors (mono flavor) or tasteless juices.

Logically, the creator of Bordeaux potions was not mistaken and this range which was formerly in 80% propylene glycol (the flavor enhancer) is now composed of 70% PG and 30% VG.

If our potion of the day El Gringo is a mono-flavor, we will see later that these ranges of access have evolved well.

The vials are in 10 ml of PET plastic and the products are based on four values ​​ranging from nicotine-free to 6, 12 & 16 mg / ml.

The rate generally found is: 5,90 €.

Vapelier's note regarding the respect of various conformities (except religious): 5 / 5 5 5 out of stars

Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects

The presence of distilled water and alcohol is not mentioned by the labeling, I deduce that the potion is devoid of it.

Regarding the logo with the skull, remember that it is mandatory in the case of an e-liquid 6 mg / ml but that its dosage is much lower than the caffeine contained in a cup of espresso while the effects are comparable.

All the items of our protocol being perfectly informed, the maximum note is acquired.

Comments on the packaging

The impression of "quick done" and a rough result do not change my perception.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 5 / 5 5 5 out of stars

Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice

Nose and taste buds are in unison, El Gringo is a coffee potion whose name could not lie.

The flavor is well transcribed by BordO2 flavors and the "little black" is credible.
Not too strong, not too bitter, the whole is rather sweet but not devoid of a certain character. Nevertheless, I hesitate, if it seems to me to perceive a dominant Mocha, I would choose gladly for a mixture Arabica and Robusta coming from South America.

The aromatic power, as the presence in the mouth are of value in the average. Needless to say, the dress is very pleasant.

If, usually, I feel a bit of weariness in the coffee flavors, the quality of the aromas of this recipe allowed me to override. At the time of writing, the 20 ml received for this evaluation have been closed for a long time.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting

Once is not custom, I liked this juice on dripper. Yet it is rare for such a ratio of PG / VG.
Nevertheless the El Gringo is perfectly at ease in the devices of atomization and the clientele targeted by starter kits.

Personally, I appreciate this type of warm / hot steam recipe.

My mood ticket on this juice

Like many other potions, the "coffee" flavor is one of the must-haves of many catalogs of vaping manufactures.

BordO2's El Gringo des Bordelais holds its rank in beautiful fashion thanks to quality aromas.
We could imagine a quality a little below and aromas boosted by a majority PG but it is not so.
The conso-vapers is treated with respect and this reference of a range yet access, enjoys a high level.

A soft, slightly sweetened coffee, with a slightly dominant Moka flavor, is a good way to gently quit smoking.

As usual, health and safety topics are treated perfectly ... all you have to do is find a reseller - which should not be too difficult - near you to form an opinion and especially add a line to your allday favorites.

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?
