RY 4 (RY4) is a sweet tobacco with undertones of caramel and vanilla.
This is a very popular blend.
--- Email from customer Scott 09/06/2013:
Look, I was an [removed] and I admit it shamelessly. A little preface should explain things.
I have been making my own juice for about 8 months now. It's been all I vape, and I am told it's quite extraordinary. I handcraft NET flavor from premium cigar leaves and mix my creations carefully with precision.They're tasty.
So, anyway, I opened up the package today and cracked open the RY4(xtra).
Whatever I whined about a week and a half ago was rendered irrelevant as the ecstasy of inhaling your RY4 could be likened to your first deep french kiss.I couldn't stop,as the heavenly vapor caressed my tongue, deep tingling my taste buds. [removed], Batman, I am runnin' off with the Cat Woman!
So, uh, I finally stopped when I started to get the "Nic-saturation-nasal-loosening" effect as I re-grasped my tenuous clutch on daily mundane living.
So hey, you make some stellar RY4. All is forgiven re: the processing/shipping time, because your juice knocked my boots together.(As well as took me to Valhalla again,that oh so familiar place that I had missed so much!)
Best wishes,(Take a bow!)and I will send more money your way again, soon,

Had never ordered a tobacco flavor before, but am so glad this one is the 1st I've tried.
I can't compare it to a tobacco flavor tho, it's much too smooth and tasty for that! Thanks for the larger bottle size too EC Blends.

I was saying how good Tribeca was and it is but after another day with this ry4 I have to say I think I like this one better. This was the first flavor I tried from ecblend and I'm impressed. Also I appreciate the free bottle of 7 leaf tobacco they threw in. Unlike Halo who once in awhile will send you a free bottle of one of thier flavors, ecblend saw that the other juices I ordered were tobaccos and they gave me a free tobacco sample! Halo knows I only order their tobaccos but they send some nasty pins colada flavor witch does me no good. Ecblend gets points in my book for sending me a tobacco and not cotton candy or something I probably wouldn't like. Good job, I'll be ordering again and can't wait to try my other samples I got.

I was vaping Halo Tribeca in a tank then put this RY4 tobacco flavor in there and I have to say it is pretty good. I don't taste much tobacco, little caramel but a lot of vanilla. Which isn't bad at all. Steeped one week, it's kind of a creamy vanilla and while not as good as Tribeca to me, for the price it's definitely a winner.

I'll try to be brief. I gave up the winstons (as well as my beloved Copenhagen) six months ago when I took the plunge and bought a MVP with an Aerotank.I spent the first month dabbling with different flavors when I inevitably came to something called RY4. Not being one for fruit-like flavors this one struck a chord with me. I quickly discovered that everyone had a take on it and every single one was radically different from the other. I lost count of how many versions I tried. Some very good and some were nauseating. I'm not exaggerating. A couple brands literally gave me a stomachache. All that aside, the great ones kick ass and it's still my number one flavor. I'm not going to name names, but another company whose name rhymes with [vendor] held the top spot for me. Anyway, I was sent here by a friend of a friend and FINALLY got your version. I got it in the mail just 30 minutes ago. Wow. No need for me to steep. im completely and utterly satisfied right out of the package and I don't know if I have the patience to let it steep. Good job, guys. [vendor] may have just gotten unseated.

I came back to ECBlends after trying another vendor who reportedly had "Gourmet E-Juice Priced Affordably". While the cost was a bit lower than [ECBlend] and admittedly I did find three I liked I found none that I really "loved". So...... "I'm BACK! I have also placed yet another order since the one in review.
RY4 - for me a great taste that I have yet tired of; my 'taster' is not the best at detecting 'flavors' so e-liquid must stand out for me to "enjoy" and not simply 'make vapor'. ALL the various blends I have tried do quite well. I am well pleased and when adding GREAT customer service I'll be back many times to come.

i am AMAZED !!!! at the taste and CLEAN burning of this RY4. I LITERALLY HAD TO STOP VAPING AND COME TYPE. i use an itaste VTR at 3.9 volts in a Aspire nautilus mini ..LISTEN AND LISTEN GOOD. RY4 60/40 EX FLAVOR EX VANilla AND CARAMEL THE WORD DELICIOUS would be and understatement. I have to Remember to eat because it satisfies A CRAVING like A salivatory pre orgasmic ..WHAT IS THE DAMN RECIPE ???. FOR THIS NECTAR.. NO MATTER HOW I INCREASE THE VOLTS OR WATTS NO REAL OVERBURNING ...JUST INTENSE FLAVOR... i have tried 20 OR MORE EC flavors Dragons passion, Newharbor and caramel and Dragons Brew round out my top 5. in my quest for a tobbaco vape i will try the (straight) dry tobacco blends next... BUT EC BLENDS HAS CHANGED MY MIND ABOUT WHAT I THOUGHT I LIKED.... FORMER 30 YEAR, 1 TO 2 PK A DAY NEWPORT HOER
Posted by BIKER-THUG on 4th Oct 2014
been smoking for 30 years, tried the disposables(njoy,vuse,blue) they wouldn't do it for me . my friend turned me on to this at work .that Saturday was vaping this in a pro tank 3 . haven't look back been almost 3 weeks now . thank you EC blend .customer for life
Posted by Paul Fortunato on 1st Oct 2014
After letting it steep for a week, this flavor mellowed to what I would say is a solid interpretation of RY4. I could vape this all day (80/20 11mg, standard flavors).
PS: If EC Blends can find a way to recreate Halo's Tribeca, I wouldn't order from anywhere else. The Tribeca is still the best RY4 I've ever tasted, its just way too expensive to vape it often.
Posted by Swigg on 17th Sep 2014
This is definitely my all day vape! The search for #1 is over, I just need to find a #2. I thought I found it with Halo's Tribeca...but EC Blend's RY4 is the TRUTH!!!! BEST FLAVOR of my 2 year quest.
70/30 12mg Extra Flavor
Has anyone ever added Extra Tobacco? I find that I still want to smoke regular cigs when I am drinking with smoking friends. I have a theory that if this amazing blend had an extra tobacco kick added, it might curb that need.
Any suggestions for #2 vape. I want a contrast to this RY4 maybe with a strong tart fruit, like a green jolly rancher or lemon head candy flavor. I am scared to try the green apple here, as it sounds like just eating a green apple. I know it's a review section, but I did not see a blog here

I've been vaping since the beginning. I used to love Dekang RY4, back before we had any affordable domestic options. This juice captures the RY4 flavor of old. It really is spot on. 70/30 with 18mg nicotine and no cool hit or extra flavor...and it is the perfect RY4. Let it STEEP! This juice hits the amazing mark right around week 3 of steeping. Best RY4 EVER.
Posted by Brandon Albright on 31st Aug 2014
Too artificially caramelly sweet. ordered 5ml, 18mg nic. lowered pg, extra flavoring. added 1 extra shot caramel.... too thick of a sweetness. next time im ordering regular ry4 and wont add anything and try it out. oh yea, flavor was the same 1 and 2 weeks after steeping. maybe a month will do it??....the search continues....
Posted by David Honaker on 8th Aug 2014
Nic Strength: 18 mg 60% PG / 40% VG
Add Flavor Shot: Vanilla 25 day steep
I really love this juice. I ordered it with a shot of vanilla, and it's taaaasty. My only complaint is that it could be just a bit more vanilla-ish, so I might two-shot the additional flavor next time.

Awesome!!! nough said.

I ordered this back in feburary this year after stopping the ciggies n started vapeing on 14th jan.i had tried another brands ry4 n expected this to be the same, at first I was hugely disappointed:( but I then started vapeing flavourless 12mg n used this as a **sweetner** as such.n havent looked back since :) That was a 125ml bottle...2nd bottle -(250ml ) just arrived after 4 weeks to Qld, , Australia..n no disappoinment this time...this mixed with flavourless is our ADV. I fully expect to be doing the same with **that juice** 15ml nearly gone since we got it in mail monday..:( shouldve known that wed like it ..but u never know.n being only relatively newbies non smokers our tastes r changing each day .And one lesson we are learning is just cos u like one brand of eliquid doesnt ahtomatically mean u will like anothers. Think every brand adds their own littke secret ingredient...some gd some very very bad lol..cneers n thanx EC:)
Posted by Tiffany C on 31st Jul 2014
Never run out of this juice. It's my go to favorite ry4 and my favorite overall juice. Sweet, smoky, nutty, caramel, creamy are all descriptive words that come to mind. I vape this in a carto tank as well as a evod2 on a vamo v5. I ordered xf 70pg/30vg 12 nic extra flavor shots of caramel and vanilla.
Posted by robin freshour on 31st Jul 2014
this blend is so creamy and yummy. it's on my "must have" list!
Posted by CJO on 20th Jul 2014
I have always loved RY4 and when my normal vendor changed their recipe, I had to find a new one!
This is so much BETTER than theirs too! I recommend adding extra caramel to the flavoring and if you like menthol, add the menthol blast. Perfect menthol cigarette sweet flavor. The BEST!
Posted by Rod on 5th Jun 2014
I tried RY4 from some other vendor not long after I started vaping over 3 yrs ago and it was aweful even after steeping just outright aweful so fast forward 3 yrs later decided to try it again and after reading reviews decided it come to ecblend and wow was I in vaping heaven!!!! Tried it when I first got it and it was just good, a lot of vanilla on the exhale after steeping everything blended perfect,great smooth tobacco on inhale nice caramel/vanilla on exhale!!!! Just plain OUTSTANDING!!!!! Will be ordering a lot more in the future!!
Posted by B&B on 1st Jun 2014
This is a all day vape. The best Ry4 I've tasted. I get extra flavor...no other additions in a 50/50 mix. Love it!
Posted by Unknown on 21st May 2014
18mg, 50/50. I have been on a fruity kick with my juices lately, but I always keep a tank full of this for traditional vape. This is as good or better as the other RY4's I've tried. The tastes don't overpower it. It's not bad the first day, but if you really want to get the full effect, steep it for a couple weeks. From there it just gets better.
Posted by arthurignatius on 7th May 2014
I used to hate tobacco flavors but after tasting RY4 from a local vendor i fell in love. I though"ECBlend" has to make a better version of this (I am a avid supporter). So I went out on a whim and bought 30mL (Xflavor reduced PG). My initial reaction was meh too much throat hit. Not even a day later (this is only two days into steeping). I decided to try it again and WOW! I love this juice, If I ever felt it my place to stand in front of analogue users to convert them this would be the juice I would use. Not that I would ever do such a thing... But this juice is good enough to make me "yell it from the rooftops". Good job ECBlend, after two years I have finally found an all day vape.
Posted by MC on 4th May 2014
I ordered five juices on March 6. So this review is for juices that have steeped for a couple of months. I'm using an iclear 16 with a VV Ego twist. I've been vaping for two years and ordered from many suppliers.
Out of the bottle this tasted pretty awful. After five weeks of steeping it started to come to life and it's one of my favorites now. I'm a big RY4 fan and although it's different from others I use this every day.
Posted by Ben on 8th Apr 2014
The tobacco is more an undertone flavor here while you get a strong Nutella flavor instead which is amazing!
If you're looking for more of a tobacco flavor from ECBlends that's still sweet, go and try Black Gold with Extra Flavor...I can't stop vaping that stuff :D
Posted by Goose on 14th Mar 2014
Best I have Tasted for RY4's!!!
Posted by Lee on 10th Mar 2014
Its true you need to let this steep at least 10 days, but it is a really good vape! The older it gets the better it is. Thanks a lot ec!
Posted by Simon Boude on 20th Feb 2014
First thing you do when you get this: Let it steep for at least a week and a half. Most people's issues with the flavor boils down to they didn't let it steep long enough. Don't try and quick steep it by running it through warm water, it kills the nicotine percent and the flavor. Just put it in a dark place and wait it out for a couple of weeks and you will be happy that you did. =)
Posted by Niel on 17th Feb 2014
After initially receiving, I gave this a try. Not really a nice vape. But no steep time isn't fair to a vendor or the juice. After steeping, this is some good stuff. To me, it's all very subdued. The RY4 flavor is there, but not overwhelmingly so. And not much sweetness (I write this as a complement). The tobacco flavor is also subdued, but enough to blend with the RY4 to make it a very nice musky hit with a hint of caramel. Those looking for pure RY4 fare should look elsewhere.
Posted by TerryB on 31st Jan 2014
Reminder about individual taste variations.
50/50 18mg XF, Xcaramel, Xvanilla - Steeped full 3 weeks - didn't like before then ..
Taste for me was like a mellow "red box" tobacco with a dark chocolate flavoring. Absolutely GREAT!! Will definitely order larger bottle!!
Posted by Joey on 5th Jan 2014
I tried it right out of the bottle and it was good but missing something so I fast steeped it and OMG its so much better
Posted by Kris on 26th Dec 2013
Being fairly new to Vaping (3 months) ive been ordering different flavors in hopes of discovering what "My Flavor" is. I must say, I am loving this flavor (1.8 mg extra flavor). Its my all day vape and I havent gotten sick of it yet. Ive tried fruit flavors and found them to be too sweet, but the tobacco flavors are what i lean toward and this one is great. I find the flavor to be best if left to steep for at least a week. Another great flavor and simular to this one is the DK 555. Well worth a try if you like the RY4
Posted by Anne Pearson on 16th Dec 2013
This is CRAZY!! I received my 12mg-80/20-XCaramel/XVanilla bottle 4 hours ago! After a hot water steep(on & off for about an hour), I could take no more! The color, may I add, was not even CLOSE to the steeped amber color recommended.
Might I just say that I immediately went online and ordered a 30mL bottle right away! This won't even last me 2 days.
A description of flavoring? Hmmm...delicious creamy caramel and a vanilla that is similar to the BEST Vanilla Gorilla you could imagine. EC Blends won't stop making yummy flavors until they succeed in bankrupting me! And the prices! Oh my....back to my RY4!!
Posted by Caleb Spurlin on 4th Dec 2013
I love what my local store has, which is ECBlend RY4, this taste like pure caramel, or caramel and butterscotch, i hate what i received, and i have smoked what they have at my store, and it was nothing like what i got, very disappointed, also bought a 15 ml bottle, so that was a waste, i got extra flavor, but i know that aint my problem, because it would just be a stronger taste of what i had, maybe they added way too much caramel.. without the other 2 flavors its just not RY4..
Posted by LMG on 20th Nov 2013
I ordered 5 ml, Nic 12 mg,60PG/40VG. I let this steep for 2 weeks before trying it. First taste was yuck, strong nutty flavor on inhale and then a funky maple syrup on exhale. It had a good throat hit and pretty thick vapor, but ugh the taste.
So at 3 weeks I tried it again, thinking I should taste it to see what I can mix it with, to make it taste better and WOW. Nice non-harsh smokey draw with a slight hint of vanilla at the end and then a buttery caramel on the exhale. I was AMAZED that this changed so much in ONE week. The only negative on this for me is the flavor is a little weak for my newly off cigs taste buds. I think this will be my ADV, next order will be a big bottle with extra flavor, with caramel and vanilla shots.
Let this one steep if you don't like it and just check back after a week. You may be pleasantly surprised :-D
Posted by Richard B on 11th Oct 2013
I must have weird taste buds. Got RY4 filled cartomizers several months ago and fell in love with RY4 (which are now unavailable). I have ordered over 7 different ones from different vendors and no go on any of them.
I have gotten no flavor, flower, perfume, juicy fruit, and one that just gave me a headache.
At least ECB has samplers for $2.50 so I didn't loose much.
Posted by Laura on 3rd Oct 2013
I tried this because of the review done by PBusardo. I have found my new all day vape. I ordered mine with extra flavor. This juice will never last to steep. Next order, either the 4 or 8 oz. Awesome job ECBlend!
Posted by kristina on 4th Sep 2013
When I first got this all I could smell and taste is a really strong unpleasant tobacco. I let it steep for a week and a half and now it just tastes like cotton candy. I understand a lot of places use cotton candy to sweeten up e juices but this is straight cotton candy. Not complex at all. You can't taste any tobacco or vanilla. I assume the caramel is what tastes like cotton candy. Have tried around 10 RY4's and this is low in my list
Posted by tony on 17th Aug 2013
I ordered a 5 ml sample bottle and this is the best tobacco blend I've had yet . I let it steep for about a week the hint of caramel and vanilla is perfect with lots of vapor definitely found my all day vape and still impressed with ecblend they are the most consistent on delivering good tasting juices one after the other!!!!
Posted by chris on 10th Aug 2013
It wasnt a bad flavor just wasnt as advertised it tasted more like a mocha, chocolate, or some type of coffee to me and i dont like to vape coffee or chocolate
