Comments on the packaging

Comments on the packaging
Having nothing fancy, the visual aspect proposed by the House is perfect. Discreet, an austere strand, the gray color of its packaging and the label are not noticeable.
The whole is serious and well done. As usual on 10 ml, the place is missing.
The cardboard packaging is a plus, it can protect the potion and get the various information messages on the package and avoids having an extension label.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 5 / 5
Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
Blond, bewitching and spicy I find here all the characteristics of an excellent tobacco macerate.
With a good aromatic power and a presence that is not less, the house is nevertheless very well raised. Notwithstanding a strong character, he knows how to remain soft and remains accessible to an audience that has not received the decryption codes of e-liquids obtained from the maceration of tobacco leaves.
From a recipe whose exact composition I do not know, it seems to me to feel a blend of where virginia would be present for the good education and the alliance of a little burley mixed with oriental tobacco for the spicy side.
The assembly is perfectly executed and balanced to obtain a combination very close to perfection. Very close ? Yes because in front of such a recipe, one always takes to dream of an even more perfect creation. Eternal dissatisfied, go!
Finally, I am a little worried about the description of this elixir. It's hard to express feelings that leave you speechless.
One thing is certain, it is difficult to make more credible and realistic.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
As usual, a macerate is a fragile and self-respecting juice. There is no need to take out the heavy artillery and the armada of atos double coils with the big air inlets.
If vape MTL goes well, DL in the right conditions allowed me to feel it in new ways and I would be hard to definitively decide for one or the other method of inhalation.
For more realism warm / hot steam devices seem to me more suitable.

My mood ticket on this juice
Brilliant realism, House by V by Black Note is a tobacco macerate that manages to reproduce a sensation among the most faithful of those that the vape immediately named: the killer. And it must be recognized that macerated tobacco-based juices are those that come closest to them.
Savant and timely mix that I imagine consists of blond virginia allied to a hint of burley and oriental tobacco, the manufacture offers us a typed assembly, with the strong character but the education acquired in the best schools.
This taste category is often appreciated by licensed amateurs - of which I am a part - and confirmed vapers. Nevertheless, a confidential distribution as well as a generally more complex aromatic palette, coupled with an increased fouling of the resistances and a relatively fragile raw material only attest to their particularism. Often too, we found this category of juice at high prices which did not really participate in a wider dissemination.
Many of these arguments are swept by Smooke France. The rate claimed for the House and the V by Black Note is at the level of a "classic" juice at 5,90 € the 10 ml. I did not notice any exaggerated deposits on the capillaries of my coils. The flavor of this recipe is certainly complex but it is ideally suited to a spicy blond tobacco that smells of sun and hot sand.
Missing an even larger distribution network for the proposal reaches a larger audience. If Le Vapelier can make a modest contribution, it will only be legitimate in the face of the quality of this production, the Top Juice obtained completing to conclude these few lines.
I finally have only one regret, that Smooke France did not send me only 20 ml 😉
See you soon for new hazy adventures,
