Was looking for NET (naturally extracted tobacco) and found Catskill MOuntain <a href="http://www.vapinkiss.com/eliquid
. I saw that they had amazing prices on their e-liquid
s. They sell 1oz or 4 oz for 15.00 or so. I thought this sounded good. They extract their own tobacco and thought I would like to try it.
SOmehow I would put it off, but I finally decided to give it a go. I placed my order, 12mg, 50/50 pg/vg. The owner called me up and asked me about the order, he said that he usually sold it with some added flavour because it was rather strong. I told him I was looking for a true clean tobacco, no flavour added. I figured if it was strong I could add some more unflavoured 12mg pg/vg to it and dilute the flavour. He told me his latest batch was just finished "brewing" and he had to strain it and mix it to my needs and it would take a week to ship. I thought to problem, how nice, what great customer service.
I finally got it. It came in a large bottle with a cool needle tip. It had separated so I shook it and took the cap off and let it steep for 2 weeks, It started off a very light golden/greenish colour, and it smelled good. By the end of the 2 weeks it had darkened to a light green and there was a lot of sediment, so I shook it and put a few drops on my atomizer and took a few puffs before I filled the tank. It was strong and it was BAAD. It was so bad it made me wretch like when you take a sip of really strong cheap scotch.
I put it away again , for another couple weeks, opening the cap again for a day and shaking it every day.
Today I tried it again, still awful and now its a dark greenish colour, with lots of floating sediment. The smell went from a good tobacco aroma to a bad stink.
I felt bad that I had 4 oz of this stuff. I took 30mls and added 30mls of flavourless 50/50 and tried it again, and its still awful. I think Im going to see if I can flavour it with some Burley or Virginia flavour from Flavourwest. Maybe add some THe flavour apprentice "smooth flavour" and see if it rounds it off to something vapable.
To my conclusion, if you like really stinkie , strong, tobacco this might be for you. I thought Ahlusions Devil Dog was strong, at least it tasted good, even if it would put some hair on your chest. The Catskill makes you want to "hurl" on your chest.
Catskill Mountain Vapours has a large array of the typical fruit, and sweets and bakery flavours. They are probably good, but the tobacco , I would not get if they paid me.
