ECIGSSA posted Juice Review – “PAPA Reavers – Ol’ Blue Eyes”

PaPa Reavers – Ol’ Blue Eyes Review

 

“I’ve been meaning to write up this review for a few days now, because in my eternal quest to find a great tobacco flavour, this one in particular has won me over. My taste buds took some time to adjust to the awesomeness of Ol’ Blue Eyes. But then I discovered myself craving her more and more as time progressed. I purchased this from Vape Club in Benoni.

The guys at Reavers have really created a unique tobacco masterpiece in this humble reviewers opinion. And I am just so excited to share my experience with other tobacco lovers out there.
My ability to accurately identify and convey individual flavours is hopelessly inadequate compared to the seasoned guys on here, so please keep that in mind.

Website blurb
No. 2 | PaPa Reavers – Ol’ Blue Eyes
R150.00 – R650.00/bottle

Premium blend flavoured Vape Liquid
Ol’ Blue Eyes – “Frank’s preferred smooth, rich earthy cigar with a flavourful hint of Cognac to complete the experience”

PaPa-Reavers-Ol-Blue-Eyes-A-300x300.png

My Impressions
Ol’ Blue Eyes feels like an authentic cigar with a real earthy feel, I’d say it’s not sweet at all, but there is a hint of something (I blame my n00b taste buds here) that must be the cognac? Whatever the combination is, it works perfectly. The aroma is warm and inviting, a perfect match for me with a nice espresso. It’s almost like the good ol’ days with a real smoke.

Comparing it to bunch of other tobacco styled flavours is what really sets it apart for me. It tastes pure and unadulterated, which by the way took me a bit of getting used to. But man! once my taste buds got into gear, I was hooked.

Device Used
Alien mod/Ammit 22 Rta – Standard Clapton Coil 2.5mm running at 28-30W.

Conclusion
This is definitely something I can vape all day long… In summary then, I think the Blurb says it perfectly “smooth, rich earthy cigar with a flavourful hint of Cognac”

In South Africa …. Where does the law lie with vaping?

An insightful and to the point Blog is posted here for and on behalf of:

Where does the law lie with vaping?

Written by NOSA | May 4, 2017 11:30:00 AM

South Africa’s law on smoking is very clear. Its law on vaping and e-cigarettes? Less so. South Africa has become progressively more restrictive on when and where its citizens can light up, and its penalties for non-compliance are appropriately punitive. But when it comes to e-cigarettes, does any legislation currently exist on what we can and can’t do? This blog will break down what is currently known regarding the legal implications of vaping.

The popularity of e-cigarettes is growing… and growing

According to How Stuff Works, e-cigarettes were first developed in China and were introduced to the American market in 2007. Known as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) the device emits doses of vaporised nicotine that are inhaled. It’s battery-operated and can also emit non-nicotine vaporised solutions. According to Medical News Today the manufacturers of the e-cigarette say they are an alternative for tobacco smokers who want to avoid inhaling smoke; indeed, it’s since been used as an alternative to smoking real cigarettes.

 

What do health professionals have to say about it?

The important thing to remember is this is a nascent product, meaning that it is in the early stages of its existence, and therefore the full scope of how it can affect users is still being investigated and assessed. As Dr Yussuf Saloojee, Executive Director of the National Council Against Smoking (NCAS) says, ‘The NCAS isn’t against e-cigarettes, but we need more evidence on the health effects before we can endorse them. They’re still so new – they’ve only been around for a decade. Revisions are being made in this field almost on a daily basis.’

 

So where can you vape?

Here’s where the line becomes hazy, because it is not a cigarette and it does not contain tobacco. Mark van der Heever, spokesperson for the Western Cape Department of Health, says that as ENDS don’t contain tobacco, they can’t be read into the definition of ‘tobacco products’ in terms of the Tobacco Control Act, which provides SA with one of the world’s tightest set of smoking laws. ‘But ENDS products resemble cigarettes, so they can be seen as challenging the denormalisation of tobacco use. For this reason, the Department is considering amendments to the legislation, to ensure e-cigarettes are regulated,’ says Van der Heever.

 

 

Speaking of which, here’s what SA’s government has planned…

Minister of Health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, is keen to increase smoking legislation to incorporate e-cigarettes. According to an interview he gave on World No Tobacco Day last year, he believes that electronic cigs should be treated the say way as normal tobacco cigarettes:

 

‘We are looking at it very carefully. In the last framework [at the] Convention on Tobacco Control of the World Health Organization held in South Korea, the decision was that we need to package e-cigarettes as just any other type of cigarette. There is a trick here. Some e-cigarettes have nicotine, which means they are just as bad as cigarettes – other don’t have nicotine,’ he said. ‘Now that is a trick by the industry, saying that governments must only deal with those that have nicotine, which means I as a minister must now spend money to find out which ones do not have nicotine.’

In the US, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently set out Deeming Rights (guidelines) that e-cigarettes should be classified as ‘tobacco products’.

The FDA also added that e-cigarettes stores that produce their own liquid for use in e-cigarettes are considered tobacco manufacturers, so anybody making their own juice is now a tobacco product manufacturer.

Among the other regulations set out by the FDA, this will have an impact on where people can use their e-cigarettes if they fall into the same strict tobacco laws.

South Africa has historically been a leader in introducing tobacco laws, and if Minister Motsoaledi turns to the FDA regulations, South Africa could follow suit in classifying e-cigarettes as tobacco products.

 

Bottom line?

Until new laws are released and enforced, vaping in public spaces, such as malls and restaurants, is left to the discretion of the owners of such establishments. The same applies to companies, and how they choose to police their staff.

SMOK TFV12 PRINCE SUB-OHM TANK

The SMOK TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank enters the market as the most capable Sub-Ohm Tank ever released, headlined by the extraordinary 120W maximum range of the V12 Prince-T10 Decuple Coil Head, presenting unprecedented vapor and flavor possibilities.

Following up on the world’s most popular Sub-Ohm Tank of 2016 with the TFV8 platform and its smaller editions, the TFV12 Prince elevates the vape tank segment even greater, capable of outputting an incredible 120W maximum with the Prince-T10 coil.

The chassis design of the TFV12 Prince features multiple diameters, measuring 25mm at the base and 28mm at the widest point. The new press to open Top Fill System that isn’t featured from the previous editions is fully implemented into the TFV12 Prince, with a single fill port and a maximum tank capacity of 8 milliliters.

The new SMOK TFV12 Prince Core Family brings the world class and industry leading coil designs implemented in the TFV12 Cloud Beast series to another level, headlined with the T10 Decuple Coil Head that features an unprecedented range of 60 to 120W. Alongside the T10 are the V12 Prince versions of the popular Q4 coils found with the TFV8, featuring an extended range of 40 to 100W and the new V12 Prince-X6 that ranges from 50 to 120W, respectively.

Airflow for the TFV12 Prince is configurated around the base of the chassis, providing ample airflow even for the maximal range of the atomizer.
