|Aris from Harlem, GA reviewed blu cigs model 'Blu' on July 14 2011:|
OverallI recently purchased Blu with Classic Tobacco, Cherry Crush, and Magnificent Menthol cartomizers. I am really pleased with the product overall. I was a 25 year Marlboro smoker. I have not touched a real cigarette since receiving my Blu. The Classic Tobacco flavor does not taste like a real cigarette, but I was able to deal with it and after a day or two actually started liking it. A lot. After I got over the initial sore throat from using (maybe over-using) this product, I feel safe in saying that I will not go back to regular cigarettes. The Classic Tobacco flavor has a bit of a vanilla tone to it in my opinion. I do not taste any hint of a tobacco flavor in it at all. I wasn't really pleased with the Magnificent Menthol flavor at all as it did not produce much vapor. The Cherry Crush had a bit of a cough syrup taste to it to me at first, but it is not bad at all. In fact I can actually say that I like it. My only real complaint is that there is not a real tobacco tasting product in their cartomizer selection. The batteries have a decent amount of life. The charger pack works as advertised. I don't use the cartomizers until they are empty because after a while they do start to get a "burnt" taste to them. I have only experienced this with the Classic Tobacco cartomizers so far as I have not used up either a Cherry Crush or a Magnificent Menthol cartomizer as of yet. All in all, I would say that if you are looking to try out e-cigs as an alternative to smoking, you can not go wrong with Blu. Their customer service is very helpful. Their shipping is prompt. Their product is good.
