Drake’s Turkish Oriental E-liquid 50ml Bottle 0mg


Customers in the UK and Northern Ireland, please visit www.naturevape.co.uk our UK distributor.

Drake’s Izmir Turkish Oriental is a highly aromatic, small-leafed variety of tobacco which is sun-cured. Historically, it was cultivated primarily in Thrace and Macedonia, now divided among Bulgaria, Greece, the Republic of Macedonia and Turkey.

The name “Turkish” refers to the Ottoman Empire, which ruled the historic production areas until the late 19th/early 20th century.

Many of the early brands of cigarettes were made mostly or entirely of Turkish tobacco; today, its main use is in blends of pipe and especially cigarette tobacco.

Turkish tobacco is sun-cured, which makes it more aromatic and, like flue-cured tobacco, more acidic than air or smoke-cured tobacco, thus more suitable for cigarette production.

Available as 50ml in a 60ml short fill bottle or 100ml in a 120ml short fill bottle

Cold Extraction Process 

After leaf selection, our master blenders cold macerate the tobacco leaf blend for between 5-9 weeks, stirring them daily to ensure a full-bodied flavour.

We then use an 8 stage natural filtration process to remove all the tobacco leaf from the final liquid concentrate.

    Note to Drakes: my 60ml bottle came overfilled with about 56 -57ml in it. Generous, but I had to take 5ml out to give me enough room for 10ml of nicotine base!
    Review: I wasn’t sure what to expect from Izmir Turkish as it’s not a tobacco I’ve tried before. Overall this is quite a sweet tobacco flavour. Very smooth and easy to get along with. Medium throat hit. On the aftertaste I pick up some hints of nutty flavours and also a bready/biscuity quality that make it quite dry on the palate (it pairs well with a pint of real ale). Sometimes I pick up some gentle aromatic notes in the background too. Overall it reminded me most of a sweet Virginia flavour, sort of like that, but with some other elusive (“oriental”?) qualities in there that are hard to put your finger on, but keep you puffing away trying to work them out!
    For my tastes I wanted a touch more smokiness and aromatics to come through, it might blend well some Latakia to bring that in. But as it is I’ve enjoyed this a lot as a smooth and easy going ADV tobacco.
    Tested in: Vapefly Galaxies MTL RTA, 0.8ohm, 18 watts.

    I really was looking forward to trying this. Turkish has always been a major part of blending, especially for cigarettes. This Izmir is a wonderfully Turkish that has no problem standing on it’s own. It´s main use in blends for pipe and especially cigarette tobacco really shines through here. This smooth and actually, quite neutral taste, so reminisce to a cigarette should appeal to any of you who are, as me, trying to find a taste as close to a cigarette as possible. All you have to do is ignore “Turkish”, “Oriental” and think Cigarette. I have tried blending it with various others of Drakes liquids but , for me, on it´s own, this is as close as it´s get. No, it is not very smoky, maybe not what you would call aromatic but if you are like me, still searching the taste of cigarette, you really should give this a try. It´s fantastic.

    Tested in: Ijoy Elf and various versions of Aspire Nautilus and Triton at low wattages.

    Definitely one for cigarette fans. Very well-mannered – it tastes of expensive ready rolled cigarettes. Smooth, not sweet but with a subtle nuttiness, a very subtle citrus fruit edge and an almost floral note, but again very subtle. I liked it and it could easily be an all day vape. For me it was a little too well-mannered on it’s own, but I was more of a pipe smoker and more a fan of the stronger orientals such as Yenidje (please Drake’s can you find some and bottle it?) . This Izmir does blend very well – I enjoyed it mixed in equal parts with Virginia and Perique and I suspect cigarette smokers would love it blended with Virginia and a little Burley. I didn’t find it quite robust enough to hold up to mixing with Latakia. All in all a welcome part of the range, and one particularly good for cigarette tobacco fans.
