So this is off-beat for today and not really related to vapor cigarette smoking, but that’s perfectly okay with me because this product has gotten a lot of national buzz and created some debate at the same time. What I’m going to do today is present you all with my Vaportini Review.
What is a Vaportini?
Essentially, the Vaportini is the only device I’ve ever seen that allows you to inhale alcohol through a straw and feel the affects of the alcohol. Sound crazy? It sounded crazy to me as well, so I splurged $34.99 for this bad boy and gave it a test drive. I’m not a huge drinker, but I have been known to throw back some shots in my day!
So, I took out the old credit card and ordered this new way to
smoke drink alcohol. I paid for the product and within one week – NOTHING. Finally, an email came that said “due to the overwhelming demand for the Vaportini, we anticipate your item to ship within 2-3 weeks. Okay, fine, I’ll wait….and wait…and wait.
Not the most fun process, especially when I was so excited to give it a try and see what all the fuss was about. I read about this first on the Daily Mail UK website, and from what I saw, the message went viral on Twitter and other social media.
So finally, last week, I got the thing!
I was quite surprised at how small it was when I opened it up. The device consists of the following materials:
- Small candle (like the one you insert in a pumpkin at Halloween)
- Metal holding tray (this holds the globe)
- Globe made of glass.
The globe sits perched on a metal holding tray, which is perched on top of a pint glass (not included.) You light the candle and place it in the pint glass. I have small hands, but they don’t fit in a pint glass, so I had to drop it in there and when I did that, the candle went out. Lucky for me I had a grill lighter, one of those long torches, so I was able to get in there and light the candle.
I then placed the metal try on top of the pint glass and after that, the globe on top of that. Here is a photo of it all put together below.
(Yes, I know it’s turned sideways.)
It’s supposed to create vapor inside the globe, but mine didn’t. I filled it with a shot of Knob Creek bourbon, one of my favorite night time drinks. I waited the allotted 4-5 minutes and still no vapor. Anyways, not a big deal. I grabbed a straw and tried to see what this was all about.
At first, I didn’t really get much of a draw. It was almost like an e-cig with a bad battery! After more time passed, it did get hotter, as did the pint glass. I was able to taste the bourbon on subsequent pulls, but I never exhaled anything. I wasn’t looking for a bellowing cloud of vapor, but I was looking for something. Nothing came.
I will say the taste was great, and if I could figure out how to get some vapor out of the draw, it would be an amazing contraption.
So, I bet you are curious to see if I got drunk, hehe?
Nope. Sad to report that no buzz was obtained in my efforts. Maybe I did something wrong?
If anyone has figured this out and has advice for me, I’m all ears. This is certainly an interesting device that has let me down, but I’m not giving up yet. I’ll update this entry when I have more data and give it another shot. (Pun-intended.)
If you are under 21 years old, please don’t replicate my efforts as it’s illegal to consume alcoholic beverages (at least in the USA) and I take no responsibility for my review of the Vaportini. Please drink and smoke responsibly and know this review is for entertainment purposes and NOT an endorsement.
