As someone who’s had more than his fair share of both Bourbon and Tobacco, I felt that Smokecignals’ Bourbon Infused Tobacco would be a natural match for me. This is from their Infused Tobacco line, where you can select a flavor to infuse with their base tobacco flavor.
This juice is almost straight black in color, and smells strongly of liquor in the bottle. I’ve got it at 18mg in a 65/35 blend.
I was quite excited to try this flavor, and the bourbon scent in the bottle intrigued me. As much as I loved the idea on paper, this one was SO strong on the bourbon end that it made it basically unvapable. In fact, this might well be the worst non-funk related juice I have tried in a very long time.
The Bottom Line
Taste. This juice is just gushing with a very overpowering alcohol flavor. IT’s all you can smell in the bottle, and it taste just like it smells. Now I like the flavor of bourbon quite a bit, however this tastes more like straight up alcohol with just a touch of bourbon and it also has kind of an ammonia taste to it that honestly almost makes me feel like I’m vaping straight urine.
True to Description. They definitely loaded this juice up with plenty of hard alcohol flavor, but not in a good way. It’s way too strong to be enjoyable and as I mentioned above it has kind of a urine vibe to it. There really isn’t any tobacco flavor I could detect at all – the alcohol flavor is so strong that it completely mutes anything else that might have otherwise been present.
Throat Hit. The throat hit was just fine at 18mg. Definitely no need to go any higher on this one.
Quality of Vape. This juice is really just not good. The flavor – while somewhat bourbon-like, is just way too strong to enjoy. I can’t imagine anyone being able to vape more than a couple of puffs of this stuff. While the performance end was totally acceptable, the taste just was not good.
Overall. This is probably the worst juice I have tried this entire year not including any funk-related juices. It just isn’t even close to being vapable, and it really disappointed me, as I had initially really liked the thought of a bourbon tobacco flavor. I give them credit for trying, but this one is not even close to being ready for prime time.
