Halo is a company with a long-standing reputation for high-quality e-liquids. The Halo brand was created in 2009 by three guys with a plan to make the best e-liquid at an affordable price. They wanted to create a product that stood for quality and excellence.
A little about Halo:
Halo takes a first-class approach to their e-liquid production. Their signature line of juice is manufactured by expert chemists at their facility in Gainsville, Florida. Each batch of liquid is quality tested prior to being bottled and meets good manufacturing practices. The e-liquid is steeped when it arrives and that accounts for its rich smooth flavor. It is ready to use right out of the box.
Halo Tribeca Testing and Performance
This review is based on a 30 ml bottle of Halo Tribeca at 12mg. The Tribeca flavor is an RY4 tobacco flavor. RY4 stands for Ruyan (named after the founder of the Ruyan Group, Hon Lik) which is a flavor profile with hints of vanilla and caramel mixed with a smooth Virginia tobacco flavor.
It comes in a blue glass bottle with a dropper in a plain package. Upon opening the bottle, the liquid inside is a light brown and smells very mild. I can smell vanilla and caramel and a little bit of spiciness like ginger.
I am using this juice on a 2.2 ohm Boge cartomizer with my mod wattage set to 10W. I would normally test juices this way with an eGo-style battery and clearomizer but I gave it away to a friend who lost their vape pen, so I had to improvise. I have the wattage turned down low to avoid burning the juice.
On the inhale, I get a smooth rich flavor of slightly sweet caramel and mild vanilla. On the exhale, I get the Virginia tobacco, a kind of nutty flavor like hazelnuts and a distinct flavor of maple.
I have tried two other flavors from Halo, Kringle’s Curse and Midnight Apple Tobacco. Both of those were really good as well. They have added more tobacco flavors which I haven’t had a chance to try yet but since these flavors have all been good so far I will definitely try more.
I ordered a 30ml bottle for $20 because they seemed to be out of stock on other sizes. I really like the flavor so I would recommend it to other vapers who like tobacco flavors as well.
The vanilla and caramel flavor is sweet, but not overly sweet. It’s a nice rich flavor, a little sweet and very smooth. It has a good throat hit, that little thump in the back of your throat. It would be very easy to use this as an all-day vape.
It has a surprising amount of vapor for a 70PG/30VG blend. It might be even better for vapor production in a higher VG formulation. Since I’m testing this in a cartomizer I didn’t order it in high VG. In a tank or RDA, I would suggest that if you get it in high VG that you lower the nicotine to 12 or even 6mg. Sub ohm coils and high nicotine is not a good mix.
What We Liked
+ Smooth tobacco flavor
+ Notes of caramel and vanilla
+ Comes already steeped
+ Full-bodied flavor
+ Good throat hit
What We Didn’t
– Need more sizes available
I think Halo has mastered the tobacco flavor market with this one. It is actually hard to get a “real” tobacco flavor since that flavor that tobacco vapers are looking for comes from burning leaves. Halo has several other tobacco flavors that I would like to try as well, but I would recommend this to fellow tobacco flavor vapers.
Halo’s other tobacco flavors are Torque 56, Turkish, Prime, Midnight Apple, Black Calico, and Pirate’s Creed. They also have some sample packs in a variety of flavors so you can try some before committing to buying larger sizes.
