    I am not an expert when it comes to tobacco flavour concentrates so I need to ask a question.

    Last night I was out with my daughter who has not decided to start vaping yet and she was smoking a roll up from Golden Virginia. I smelt it and loved it. I asked for a drag and it was frickin disgusting, of course, but underneath that hideous cocktail of combustion was a really pleasant flavour.

    Does anyone know of a concentrate that comes anywhere near close to simulating the Golden Virginia flavour?

    I've just bought about 15 tobacco concentrates to try, don't know if there is a golden virginia in there, but if there is I will let you know how it turns out.

    Golden virginia is a blend of virginia, burley and oriental (Turkish) tobacco.

    FA Ozark Sweetleaf reminds me of GV, however it's a long time since I tasted GV.

    I did put in my notes "Mainly a sweet Virginia with a hint of others, 8/10" so that might be worth a try.

    I could never nail tobacco's - 30+ flavours/mixes tried and I gave up.
    Rank is an understatement.

    Yeah, I haven't had much luck either but I haven't tried as hard as you have. It's an area of flavouring that you could be forgiven for presuming that they would have nailed, early on in vaping's history but it does seem a difficult profile to get right.
