This honestly tasted like one of my failed DIY experiments. I think what they were trying to emulate with the pipe tobacco was that sweet, candy-like taste and smell the real thing has by adding a cotton candy/bubblegum flavoring to the mix, but it just doesn't work that way. Inhale is just an indistinct sweetness, and the exhale is mainly cotton candy with a weird, earthy, leathery undertone. It becomes slightly better with a nasal exhale; you'll pick up notes of a slightly spicy cigar and pipe tobacco blend (it actually had a bit of a clove-y taste to it), but even then it's still kinda funky. Originally this was a 1-star, since it's pretty gross fresh out of the bottle. After letting it steep for a bit, the flavors mellow out enough that it doesn't feel like you're vaping a burning leather jacket filled with cotton candy. More tolerable than Hot Vapes liquid, but not by much. Not recommended.
