The Best Tobacco Eliquids for US States with Current or Pending Flavor Bans

The ongoing bans on flavored eliquids due to alarm regarding vaping-related lung illnesses have been daunting for vapers across the country. While the controversy has been starting to clear up as the end of the year approaches, multiple states still have flavored eliquid under lock and key.

Meanwhile, combustible tobacco (cigarettes and cigars) are still legal. Then again, that also means tobacco-flavored eliquids are also still legal. Here are some of the best tobacco eliquids you can get right now here in America while the flavor bans are still in effect.

Lucky 13 by Cafe Racer

Our award-winning tobacco eliquid is your best bet at getting that deep and satisfying tobacco flavor for your vape. This classic RY4 tobacco eliquid combines naturally extracted Virginia tobacco flavor with notes of creamy vanilla, toasted almonds, and caramel.

The Lucky 13 is great with craft beer. Pop the top off your favorite IPA, sit back, and enjoy a nice cold brew while vaping this world-recognized tobacco flavor.

Lucky Bastard by Cafe Racer

If the Lucky 13 isn’t enough tobacco for you, then you need to double it with the Lucky Bastard. Yet another one of our award-winning flavors, the Lucky Bastard has the same flavor profile as the Lucky 13, but with twice the Virginia tobacco.

Pair this with a dram of your favorite whiskey and let it take you to places you can only imagine. There’s no better way to wait out the flavor ban.

Cool Bastard by Cafe Racer

Some people like menthol in their tobacco, and that’s something we have as well. The Cool Bastard is the Lucky Bastard with a splash of menthol for that cool and soothing flavor.

It’s the same RY4 Virginia tobacco with vanilla, almonds, and caramel, but with a menthol twist for a refreshing vape. It clears up the senses and doesn’t get old anytime soon.

This eliquid is great during summer and whenever it’s hot. It’s a great companion for watching a game, along with an ice-cold glass of beer and maybe some wings or nachos.

Prelude by Black Note

One of the most premium tobacco eliquids in the market today, the Prelude by Black Note is made from the finest Italian flue-cured tobacco plants. It’s crafted in small batches, so supplies are fairly sparse, but that also guarantees its quality.

This 50/50 VG/PG mix brings out the best of Virginia tobacco with no diacetyl or other additives. It’s pure unadulterated tobacco goodness that soothes the soul and opens up the senses.

American Patriots by Naked 100

No better time than now to assert your pride for the freedoms afforded to everyone in America by vaping a tobacco eliquid named American Patriots. It has a taste that will make you see red, white, and blue, but in a good way.

It has freshly cut tobacco flavor with subtle nutty undertones, making it balanced in both sweetness and depth. The best part about this is it’s 100% American. The American Patriots eliquid is available in both regular and nicotine salt varieties.

Patriot’s Brew by Kind Juice

Here’s another one with “patriot” in its name. Patriot’s Brew by Kind Juice is made with American flue-cured and naturally-extracted tobacco, hence the name. It’s an adult tobacco flavor that is great for both casual vaping and deep relaxation.

Aged for four months in oak barrels, the Patriot’s Brew has notes of bourbon whiskey, maple, vanilla, and oak. This depth in flavor also comes with 5ml menthol drops as an option and five nicotine strengths courtesy of Kind Juice.

Cubano by VGOD

Let’s take it away from America for a moment and bring it to a place that had long been embargoed. You can legally have a Cuban cigar in America, but not everyone can go to Cuba to get them. The Cubano by VGOD promises to bring the experience of a Cuban cigar to vapers everywhere.

That unmistakable flavor of a Cuban cigar is coupled with a hint of vanilla for a premium tobacco vape. VGOD did well with this eliquid, bringing forth an authentic Cuban cigar vaping experience that’s hard to find anywhere else.

Butterscotch Reserve by Glas Basix

If you want something with a bit more flavor that goes well with tobacco, then the Butterscotch Reserve by Glas Basix should do the trick. It’s not just candy sweetness, but a deep and unctuous flavor that compliments tobacco quite nicely.

A smooth mix of sweet tobacco and creamy butterscotch, the Butterscotch Reserve is made better with notes of caramel and vanilla. This RY4 tobacco eliquid comes in 70/30 VG/PG blend and is available in three nicotine strengths.

Apple Tobacco by Pachamama Salts

If butterscotch is not your thing, then perhaps some fruit can cheer you up. The Apple Tobacco eliquid by Pachamama is an amazing tobacco eliquid for sub-ohm vaping, delivering a balance of fruit and tobacco for either pod or vape tank.

This 50/50 VG/PG eliquid blends hand-picked green apples with freshly-cut tobacco for a fresh yet deep vaping experience. The Apple Tobacco is a nicotine salt eliquid and is available in both 25 and 50ml.

Pistachio by BLVK Unicorn

BLVK Unicorn is a unique brand, and their Pistachio tobacco eliquid is a unique product. Whoever heard of pairing tobacco with pistachios? Not a lot of people, but it’s actually pretty good.

It has toasted pistachios with a sweet tobacco base, along with a menthol kick you wouldn’t expect to top it off. This may seem weird at first, but you definitely have to try it.


Even with just a single flavor, and one as simple yet as nuanced as tobacco, you can get a lot of choice. It’s not to say this is more than enough to hold you over while flavored eliquid bans are still in effect, but it’s still not a bad variety of options at all.

While we await for this fog to clear, we can still celebrate the joys of vaping with these tobacco eliquids.
