Vaping Diaries #90: Want2Vape Review II

Back in June, I reviewed three Want2Vape Signature Blend e-liquids and was very impressed. This time around, I cover three juices from the company’s other lines: RY4, Rock Star, and The Blond. Whereas the Want2Vape Signature Blends e-liquids are straight-up, in-your-face tobacco, these juices are lighter, but still very enjoyable. Two of them mix tobacco and sweet flavors, while the other is a dead-ringer for a very distinct cigar.

As far as performance goes, Rock Star was the cleanest juice of the bunch. The Blond and RY4 will clog up your cartomizers or gunk up your coils a little bit faster, but are still relatively clean juices. All of them are suitable for a variety of juice delivery systems, whether you use cartomizers, clearomizers, or dripping atomizers.

Overall, I was quite happy with these three Want2Vape juices and especially enjoyed RY4. All three are quality e-liquids that are very tasty. The prices are slightly on the expensive side ($18.50 for 30ml of The Blond, $17.00 for 30ml of the others), but certainly reasonable. Check out the flavor breakdowns and steeping notes below.

RY4: This is a Western-style RY4 that emphasizes tobacco and caramel (to my tastebuds, anyway). It’s one of the heavier Western RY4s I’ve tried and also one of the best. The tobacco flavor — which uses a percentage of Want2Vape naturally-extracted tobacco (NET) — is fantastic. For Western-style RY4s, I prefer juices with a deep and flavorful tobacco taste to complement the sweetness. This juice fits the bill. If you’re looking for a deep and decadent RY4 then you’ll be happy with this one.

Rock Star: Fans of lighter Western RY4s should give this juice a go. When I say lighter, I absolutely don’t mean watered down. This is a bright and effervescent e-liquid that’s more balanced than Want2Vape’s RY4. While it does a better job of balancing the tobacco, caramel, and vanilla flavors, I preferred the NET “oomph” of its sister juice. Those that prefer RY4s that are brighter and lighter will probably prefer Rock Star.

The Blond: This juice really impressed me. It’s a spot-on approximation of the unique Acid Blondie cigar. For CYA purposes, it’s me that’s saying that this juice tastes like Acid Blondie; Want2Vape doesn’t make any such claims on its web site. For those of you not familiar with Acid Blondie, it’s a very distinct cigar that’s often described as botanical or herbal. Many people feel that it combines tobacco with clove, honey, ginger, mint, and caramel flavors. It’s definitely a unique flavor and Want2Vape absolutely nailed it with The Blond.

For me, the flavor is almost too unique. This isn’t an all-day vape for me or even a juice I can enjoy every other day. That said, I really respect the job Want2Vape did with this juice and like it as a once-a-week treat. If you’ve ever enjoyed an Acid Blondie cigar then you’re sure to enjoy The Blond.

Steeping Notes
On the advice of Wlad from Ahlusion, I’ve been trying a new steeping method starting December 27, 2012. When the e-liquids arrive, I leave them uncapped for five minutes. Previously, I left them uncapped for about two days. After the liquids are given a few minutes to oxidize, the caps are put back on. The bottles are shaken every day for at least two weeks before vaping.

Review Process (Updated February 17, 2013)
RPad.TV e-liquid reviews focus on the flavor of the e-liquids, since throat hit and vapor production can be altered by the PG/VG ratio and nicotine level selected. Each juice is vaped over a period of days in an atomizer, a cartomizer/tank setup, and a clearomizer. The exception is naturally-extracted tobacco (NET) juice; since those are known to clog up cartomizers quickly, those are vaped in atomizers and clearomizers.
