I love the idea of finding a great rustic and tasty pipe tobacco to vape throughout the day, and get the feel of smoking an actual pipe. Unfortunately I have not found one yet that has met my standards. Today I am going to see if Smokecignals’ Pipe Tobacco is up to snuff. Here’s what they say about it:
Slightly sweet and super mellow pipe tobacco flavor. Would you like a touch of cherry or vanilla? Let us know.
This juice has a reddish color in the bottle and doesn’t carry much of a scent. I’ev got it at 24mg in a 65/35 blend. They offer the option of adding cherry or vanilla, but I chose to get it plain so I could get a better feel for the actual tobacco flavor.
Taste-wise, I really didn’t like it. The flavor is super light and the only real taste I get is a hint of mothballs. It doesn’t have any kind of smokey personality that I would expect from a good pipe tobacco. Performance-wise, it hits very well and chucks a lot of vapor.
The Bottom Line
Taste. I really didn’t care for the taste of this juice at all. The ONLY thing I can even think to compare it to is mothballs – which is also similar to the results I had with their Sophisticated tobacco. There’s not really much else to say about it – it’s very light and the flavor I do get is not good at all.
True to Description. I would say this one ended up pretty far of the mark. It doesn’t taste even remotely like tobacco to me, let alone pipe tobacco, and beyond that it’s bordering on being downright gross.
Throat Hit. At 24mg, I thought this one hit better than their King Cake. Although I liked King Cake’s throat hit, this one has a real kick to it and I think it is quite a bit better.
Quality of Vape. As much as I don’t like the flavor of this one, it is very light, so on the plus side you could at least probably mix it with something else and it wouldn’t be a total loss. I am pretty critical when it comes to tobaccos as I have tasted SO many that just aren’t even close to tasting like actual tobacco. Unfortunately this one falls into that category for me.
Overall. It’s just not very good. Smokecignals has some amazing tasting juices, but their tobacco flavors have been kind of a disappointment for me, and this one in particular was just not very good.
