French Toast Black Label (SC) (Real Flavors) 3% (5-25-18) – Was a huge fan of the original RF SC French Toast v.1 so when I heard about a new Black Label, had to try it. This is an improvement on the v.1, as you immediately hit with a delicious buttery bakery-ness that the original didn’t have. This is followed up by some egg as well as some maple syrup. There might be a smidge of cinnamon on the end note, and if so, very subtle. Having been asked quite a bit how this one is different from the v.1 the easiest comparison would be more bread, egg, and bakery. This doesn’t mean the v.1 is better or worse, but different. Haven’t steeped this one yet, so these are all fresh mixed results. Steeping results will be added if noteworthy. With the increased butter, bread, and egg, this one (like the v.1 SC flavor) just seems like a winner all the way around. The maple syrup is in there, with maybe a touch of cinnamon, which just works really well, as a blended masterpiece. There was mention that this had the RF SC Black Label Vanilla in it, and although I cannot pick it out, means it is craftily layered into the mix. 10/10 on this one. If you liked the RF SC v.1 French Toast, you will love this one…
I taste tested the v1 French Toast when it first came out… liked it, but really enjoyed the Bread Pudding (VG version) I was half hoping to see it in the Black Label version. I just couldn’t see pulling the trigger for a 10ml bottle (when you include shipping). I have/had a gift card I won awhile back but don’t believe what I had left on it is still valid ( I haven’t used it and I believe the last time I did I made Walt jump through hoops to get the order processed) or I may have used it for the little order.
I’m placing my order right now! Have you tested this since this post? Curious how its steeping. I know, it’s only been 6 days since you wrote, just curious how it’s going. Thanks for all of your input, man. You’re notes are very insightful
@Plunderdrum Thank you very much. I haven’t re-tested it yet, but just smelling it (which is not the same as vaping it LOL), it smells richer and fuller, BUT, please be advised, smelling only at this point. During most, if not all of my original, and continued RF SC SF tests, about EVERY one, improved with steeping. Now we’re not taking about going from CRAP to GREAT, but most seemed to have improved strength, fullness, richness, and generally just a much better vape. I’m not 100% sure why this was, as these were NOT complex, multi flavor mixes, but simple single flavor tests. With that in mind, the BL French Toast was so good fresh mixed, the buttery/bakery goodness will probably just deepen, and improve. It’s pretty damned good, literally right off the mixing scale.
How’s it looking?
@Plunderdrum I vaped it all up before I got to the long steep, just too dammed tasty to NOT.
Sounds like a win! Thx!
I just got the small sampler bottles in this Friday (BL French Toast, Vanilla, and Banana Cream Pie)… 3% still look good as a single flavor mix for the French Toast?
Absolutely. Can’t wait to hear what you think after it’s settled down.
I read a couple of different posts (one on the recipe/flavor side of the site) where YOU couldn’t wait for the mix to settle out and went on to vape your stash… what gives you even an inkling that I’ll have the patience to wait? lol
EDIT: Finger test is nice with the fresh mix… if it vapes like it tastes I can see why it didn’t last.
On October 22nd, via the Messenger app on the Real Flavors Facebook page, I had inquired whether the Black Label would still be available on their new website. They responded that “Yes we will be caring the black label again. They are just not on the website just yet as we are working on their production.”
Fast forward to today 12/31/2018. I spoke with Joe (a representative from Real Flavors) inquiring about the Black Label line; as I still did not see them listed on their website. I asked for transparency to whether the Black Label flavors were still in production or if they were discontinued. He stated that “unfortunately they are discontinued flavors”. They will not be available on the website or from any re-sellers.
@Leilani this is very sad news indeed, as my BL French Toast runs low. I do appreciate your continued follow up on this, and taking the time to do so, and post up.
Just buy up mate - The black label was 2x the price now it isn’t
Well WHEN the freekin’ hell was Uncle Walt going to TELL his loyal followers !!! ?? !!!
I AM however, curious about exactly WHERE the black/not_black/kinda_black label(s) are to be had. Only at Real Flavors ?? What about the resellers, do they still have the old (not black label) on the shelves, or the new (not labeled as black label) ??
Ya that is a dilemma that perhaps @Walt_RealFlavors can clear up early in the new year.
