Shade
Nicotine: 12mg

Natural Tobacco flavouring derived from the North American Shade tobacco variety grown under shade in the Connecticut River valley of the U.S.
Shade tobacco is used as the outermost layer of high-end cigar brands.
The liquid is matured in oak barrels and is a crisp,medium strength tobacco vape  giving a very smooth inhale and exhale.     
The eliquid has a really sweet tobacco aroma, with a true high end cigar note behind it.

On Vaping Shade.
The eliquid delivers quite an intense solid tobacco derived infusion of flavours, more in line with a premium cigar flavour. That seems to start with a natural sweetness developing at the tip of your tongue. 

The smooth infusion of tobacco leaf flavours seems to glide across your tongue, leaving a really pleasing trail of crisp natural tobacco flavours across your tongue.

Some ELiquids try to imitate the flavours, that are created when you enjoy a smooth cigar, were as shade seems to recreate the flavour, it seems to take to essence of the cigar flavour, without the smokiness, just a clean crisp flavour.

On exhale you get a silky smooth Vape, where I think this ejuice is at its finest, you seem to get all the flavour notes in perfect harmony, 
This ejuice even at 12mg delivers a very solid and satisfying tobacco infused throat hit, with plenty of kick to it.

Conclusion.
Shade is an amazingly infused luxury eliquid, that makes the perfect relaxing evening Vape, with all the flavour high notes from a very fine cigar, and in my opinion is best enjoyed dripped into you favourite RDA, and savoured.

IMPERIUS XV
Nicotine : 12mg

Imperius XV is matured in a French Oak barrel for a three month period.

Natural Tobacco Flavouring derived from the Brightleaf Virginian Tobacco variety grown in Suffolk, USA mixed with a natural fresh Robusta coffee extract combined with a pure Irish whisky gives a solid hit with a smooth aftertaste. Enjoy the full-flavor of a delectable blend of tobacco, coffee and Irish whisky.

This is one of darkest of the Red Vape ejuices, and as you slowly unscrew the childproof pipette cap, you release an amazing rich aroma, with hints of rich coffee, a slight aroma of whisky, all interlaced around a sweet tobacco in the back ground.

On Vaping Imperius XV
I really didn't know what to expect from the full bodied, full flavoured infusion of flavours, as they all seem quite strong flavours to mix together in one ejuice. As I started to draw the vapor in, the first thing I noticed was how ultra smooth the incoming vapor was. The initial flavour that seemed to come to the forefront, was that of the Robusta coffee extract, which delivers a full body coffee flavour sensation, a really nice rounded dark creamy coffee, with none of the coffee bitterness some you can sometimes get from a coffee based Vape.

As the coffee infusion reaches further down your tongue, it seems to somehow start to mellow and melt away, exposing a warming whiskey chaser. Which holds its flavour all the way to the back of your throat. 

The throat hit that you receive from this juice, was not as strong as I was expecting, but does has a satisfying kick from the combination of the whiskey and the coffee.

The two flavours, as you exhale seemed to be perfectly infused together, and remind me of the perfectly made Irish Coffee, with all the right levels of flavours in all the right places.

Just at the end of the exhale, as the Irish coffee combo melts away, you get the underlying notes of the sweet Brightleaf Virginian Tobacco coming through, which has been skilfully introduced, holding the flavours together, giving them a real depth of flavours.

Conclusion.
The combination of naturally extracted flavours, have been very skilfully infused together, with no single flavour overpower the other, they all just seem to be complementing each other.  This ejuice has a real depth of flavour to it, and real body, without being to heavy, a great evening Vape. Very enjoyable.

Appleleaf Reserva

Nicotine Strenght: 12mg

"Natural Tobacco flavouring derived from the Cuban Corojo tobacco with an added crisp green apple matured in oak barrels. The sweet, tanginess of the fresh green apple takes the Cuban tobacco to very enjoyable new vaping heights."


Opening the bottle, releases a sweet aroma of natural tobacco leafs, with just a hint of light Apple.

On Vaping APPLELEAF Reserva
As you draw the Vapor in you pick up on an exquisite tobacco leaf infusion of flavour,  not your normal pretend tobacco flavour, but a really high quality, with a hand rolled feel to it.  I think when you used to smoke you get so used to the chemical enhanced reengineered tobacco flavour, that most people would even be able to tell you what tobacco leaf would taste like, and I think it's only when you take the extract of a high end tobacco leaf, and infuse it in the way Red Vape do, that you start to taste it for what it really is.  It has a real natural sweetness to it, on its high notes, which seems to sit along side it's rich full bodied bass notes.

These high notes of sweetness seem to be intensified by the combining of the natural flavours from the apples.  Without creating an over sweetend vape, it just seem the even out the richness from the tobacco, and some how cut through the flavour. In the same way a good sauce brings out the flavours in a dish you may be eating.

Considering that this eJuice is only 12mg, it delivers a satisfying throat hit, which was quite surprising, with a real tobacco hit.

As you exhale you seem to get more of the fresh apple infusion cutting through the flavour, leaving you month feeling refreshed and your pallett some what cleansed.

The 50/50 blend produces excellent thick vapor, and is a real pleasure to exhale.

Conclusion.
This one is a real pleasure to vape, and as with the other EJuices in the Reserva range, just seems to special to use as an all-day-vape, all though for the last two days I have been, I think it is one of those Ejuices that is best savoured, and I am looking forward to Vaping it this summer outside with a ice cold glass of Cider.

Perique Reserva
Nicotine Strenght : 20 mg Nicotine
Is described on the Red Vape website as follows:
Natural Tobacco Flavouring, derived from the Perique tobacco variety grown in Louisiana.The Liquid is matured in barrels made from white oak, previously used for maturing Bourbon whisky. This gives the liquid a vanilla-caramel note. 
Perique is considered to be the truffle of pipe tobaccos.

On Vaping Perique Reserva
As you unscrew the cap, you are greeted with a strong aroma of sweet Caramel, as you nose adjusts to aroma, you then start picking out the tobacco notes. 

As soon as the Coil starts sizzling, and the thick vapor starts to enter you month, you instantly know you are in for a treat.

The first flavour that starts move across your tongue is a moist high quality tobacco, 

The tip of you tongue instantly picks up the Infusion of caramel, Which is then lifted and enhanced, as it reaches further down you tongue by a very light sweet vanilla twist.

I can't get over how true to life the sweet tobacco flavour is. And seems so well balanced by the vanilla Carmel.

On exhale you get a warm tobacco flavour flowing across the tongue.

Defiantly feels like there is a hint of warmth from the process of the steeping in the Bourbon aged oak barrels.  Giving the ejuice and subsequent vapor, a real aged quality, 

Tasting 100% natural! and unlike any other eliquid I have tasted and reviewed.

Some tobacco juices I have tried in the past have had a level of bitterness,  the PERIQUE RESERVA has no such bitterness, just a tobacco vaping experience that can only be experienced to be believed.

As you continue to savour the thick vapor, it finally reaches the back of your throat it delivers a solid, very satisfying throat hit, which is of cause aided by the level of nicotine. The throat hit is defiantly in keeping with the overall vaping experience.

On exhale this 50/50 premium e liquid produces a fantastic level of thick white vapor, filling the room with an amazing aroma of sweet Carmel infused tobacco.

Conclusion.
This is with out doubt one of the finest tobacco based ejuices that I have had the pleasure in trying and reviewing.

The balance of Carmel and vanilla flavour infusion, combined with the ultra smooth tobacco, all steeped together in the oak barrels, has created a sensational vaping experience, that all vaping connoisseur, looking for a luxury e liquid to while away the hours with, must try.
Although I am finding it hard to put it down, it feels to special to be an all day vape. Maybe just a bit more.....

Honeywood Reserva
Is described on the Red Vape website as follows:
Natural Tobacco Flavouring derived from the Brightleaf Virginian Tobacco variety grown in Suffolk,USA. The Liquid is matured in barrels made of North American oak, previously used for maturing sherry.
On Vaping Honeywood Reserva
As you unscrew the cap on this large 30ml square glass bottle,  you defiantly get the feeling that you are in for something very special, this feeling is backed up by aroma that is given off as soon as the cap comes off, it's like unscrewing the lid of a jar of moist tobacco, a real true aroma of tobacco, unlike anything else I have smelt when un-capping an e juice.

As soon as you start to vape on this ejuice, you seem to get a true tobacco sensation in your month, I say mouth, rather than tongue, as the flavour seems to engulf your mouth, rather than just your taste buds. It's the taste of moist high quality tobacco, with a real natural level of sweetness to it, that seems to linger in the month. It is defiantly the sweetness of a well cured and rested moist tobacco, more in line with a pipe tobacco, rather than the rolling variety.

The vapor delivers a solid throat hit, more accustomed with smoking than vaping.

As you exhale this 50/50 vapor, it produces thick clouds of sweet tobacco infused vapor, and a great moist tobacco flavour in the month.

Conclusion
This ejuice is defiantly not your average all day vape, and should be savored, as an evening vape, along with a nice glass of something special.

An amazing addition to any Tobacco vape connoisseur collection. one for the true tobacco lover.

So you may ask why a 9 not a 10, for such a special ejuice, I found the taste of tobacco so realistic and true to life, that it reminded me so much of the sensation you get from smoking, Taste, aroma, which is a sensation I have moved away from over the year. and bit since i started vaping, but still found it a true pleasure to vape and review, hence a high scoring 9.
