Pretty good...I think I'd like the liquid better...Review by Wayneon 10/25/2013For the first time ever, I had a lot of trouble with this particular V4L order (which finally arrived today!). I placed the order, got a USPS tracking number almost immediately and then...there was no activity on it for several days. I tried contacting V4L customer service, with no response, and opened a service ticket. I also placed another order that was almost exactly the same as the one I had placed earlier.
Finally I got a response to my queries from V4L. Apparently they were out of stock on one of the liquids I had ordered in the nicotine level I had requested and asked me if I wanted a substitution. Having never tried "Richmond" before, I thought it would be a good substitution.
Today my order finally arrived - both of them actually. Everything I had ordered was included, except that the Richmond came as a box of five prefilled cartomizers instead of a bottle of juice. And I definitely prefer the liquid to the prefilled cartos, which are almost always too sweet and not really robust enough for my tastes. For me, the bottles of ejuice have always been the best way to go.
With all of that said, I am pretty happy with the Richmond flavor - even in the cartomizers. It seems to have a good, smooth tobacco flavor with hints of sweetness. It's hard to prejudge, but I expect that it would be really good in eLiquid. I'll probably get some of that on my next order, but it will likely be a little while before I need anything else. Since both of these orders arrived today, I'm REALLY well-stocked for now!
If this had been my first or second experience with V4L, there's no way I would consider using them anymore. But I've been dealing with these folks for a good while now and this was the ONLY problematic order I've ever had with them. I've spent well over $1000.00 with them over the last several months so I know that the service is almost always speedy & trouble-free. So I'll keep on shopping for e-cig supplies here. Their flavors are by far the best I've found.
