Element E-Liquids Tobacconist
Element E-Liquids are an American E-Liquid manufacturer based in Florida. They currently have a wide variety of juice in their ranges and while they have produced two tobacco E-Liquids already this is the first time that they have dedicated an entire range to them.
All their E-Liquid is made in the USA and to high quality standards. Element only use organically extracted nicotine from natural American tobacco leaves and do not artificially create it in a lab. Their juice is completely Diacetyl free so you won’t find any nastiness in these E-Liquids. The juice is 100% steeped before it is distributed ensuring the juice is at its best right away. Element use only Pharma USP Grade Ingredients sourced from the most trusted names in the pharmaceutical industry.
The new Tobacconist E-Liquids are mixed to 80VG/20PG so you can expect tons of clouds but depending on your preference they are also available in a ratio of 50VG/50PG. The juice can be purchased in 10ml, 30ml, 60ml and 125ml bottle sizes although the larger sizes are only intended for American distribution. I am not completely sure if the 30ml bottle sizes are supposed to be 20ml since all their photos show mainly 20ml bottles but the list on their website reads very differently which creates a little confusion.
We received five juices from this range in 10ml PET bottles which featured child proof top caps. The larger bottles are made from glass and feature child proof dropper top caps. The labels are smartly done and show all of the typical information you would expect including clear warnings.
I tried out of all of the juices sent for review in a Royal Hunter RDA set up with a 1.0hm single coil wicked with Japanese cotton.
This is a really delicious tobacco flavour since the juice has this really creamy quality to it. The tobacco is medium in strength and is the initial flavour you get when inhaling. This is followed by the excellent hazelnut which is very natural in taste being distinct and flavoursome but not overpowering. As a whole the juice is nicely balanced and the two flavours complement each other well. Vapour production was very good and the throat hit was mild to medium in 3mg strength.
In some ways chocolate and tobacco mixes shouldn’t really work but surprisingly this one does because it is not heavily chocolaty. The chocolate is of the dark variety and it does have a slight but distinct bitterness to it. This is offset by the light tobacco which almost has a hint of sweetness and this helps round out the overall flavour well. Vapour production was excellent and I found the throat hit to be mild to medium in 3mg strength.
Honey Roasted Tobacco
Out of the five flavours that I tried this one was certainly my favourite although it is something of a hard choice between this and the Absinthe Tobacco. The main flavour is a medium strength distinct tobacco which is combined with delicious honey and brings a really nice sweetness to it that comes through on the exhale, serving to enhance the juice rather than overpower it. When a suitable amount of heat is applied it creates a sensation when vaping that is very much like swallowing a mouthful of warm honey. This is the kind of vape that would go very well with a glass of whisky when you just want to chill out although having said that I could certainly vape this juice all day long because I found that I couldn’t put it down!
Vapour production was excellent and the throat hit was medium in 3mg strength.
Black Currant Tobacco
This flavour is a little bit unusual because in many ways it doesn’t come across as that much of a tobacco vape. The black currant is very natural and not especially sweet which means it does have a slight tartness to it. The tobacco which is definitely there is very light and is so heavily blended with the black currant that it forms an altogether new flavour that makes for a very subtle and creamy smooth vape.
Funnily enough I think this juice would actually suit people who like straight up tobacco flavours since it really is more of a fruity/light tobacco combination. Vapour production was once more superb and due to this juices creaminess it had a mild throat hit in 3mg strength.
Historically Absinthe alongside Gin was responsible for the ruin of many individuals in Victorian society due to way it set mild mannered teetotallers onto the path of alcoholism. For many years Absinthe was banned but eventually returned and while it does have a very high alcohol content it is intended to be used in sensible moderation. Personally I only ever tried the actual spirit about a year ago and my first introduction to it in vape form was Digby’s Juices Dr Jekyll which was notable for having a hideous snot green colour (tasted great mind you).
As far as this particular flavour from Element is concerned I was certainly intrigued to see how well absinthe would work with a tobacco and I am happy to report that it is actually very nice, in fact extremely nice!
What you get with this juice is a highly distinct medium strength tobacco that has a slight hint of spiciness to it. Combined with the tobacco and very noticeable particularly on the exhale is the flavour of absinthe which for those who haven’t tried it contains Anise which has something of a liquorice taste to it that has a slight amount of bitterness. Surprisingly despite the subtle bitterness this juice makes for an exceptionally smooth vape and I found myself indulging in it rather often! I particularly liked the balance that Element have struck between the two flavours and I think it would really appeal to anyone who enjoys tobacco E-Liquids assuming you enjoy the taste of Absinthe.
Vapour production was excellent due to the high VG content and the throat hit was mainly mild in 3mg strength.
I should point out that there is one more flavour in this range, Caramel Tobacco which we did not receive for review. I would assume given the very high standard of the five juices that I covered here I am sure it is equally as good. I personally think that I might have to start stocking up on the Honey Roasted Tobacco and the Absinthe Tobacco which were my standout favourites in this range!
If you are a fan of tobacco E-Liquids then this is a superb range to try out that I am sure you will find highly enjoyable. If you would like to purchase any of these juices you can get them directly from Element. Many thanks to Element who sent these E-Liquids to Planet of the Vapes for us to review.
