I’m afraid that my recent test of Halo Freedom Juice might have spoiled me. Freedom Juice was a truly remarkable representation of a real tobacco cigarette, I thought, and I gave it the second perfect score that I have given out on eDripping to date. According to a survey on the Halo Cigs website, Torque 56 is even more popular with Halo customers than Freedom Juice. I was looking forward to trying this one.
Unfortunately, I didn’t end up enjoying it as much as Halo’s other customers. There a certain taste in Torque 56. It’s one that I also detected in Volcano’s USA-made Menthol and Vapure Dry Blend Menthol. I’m not sure if what I’m tasting is a flavoring agent that’s supposed to taste like tobacco — which it really doesn’t — or a chemical to enhance throat hit. Either way, it’s a taste that I don’t like. It must be said, though, that Torque 56 is infinitely better than either of those other two e-liquids.
Torque 56 definitely tastes reminiscent of a cigarette, and I might have given it a slightly better rating had I not just tasted and been so pleased with Freedom Juice. Burned coffee and vanilla are the two strongest flavors that I detect, along with what I can only identify as grape — even though there is almost certainly no fruit flavoring in this e-liquid.
Vapor production and throat hit are both off the charts with Torque 56. Because this e-liquid is supposed to resemble a full-flavored or unfiltered cigarette, Halo really went all-out with the TH on this one. If throat hit is a priority for you, this would definitely be an e-liquid to add to your to-try list.
For everyone else, though, I’m going to have to stick with Freedom Juice as my recommendation for someone looking for the best tobacco e-liquid. That’s going to be one of my go-to e-liquids for a while. I should also mention that the smell of Torque 56 tends to linger in the air for a while unlike other e-liquids, which usually dissipate pretty quickly. The smell does resemble smoke quite a bit. My wife actually asked me to stop using it. Those of you who work in offices kind enough to allow e-cig puffing might want to leave the Torque 56 at home.
