4 Past Reviews

  I found some links to past reviews of Vaportini and a few I had not seen before.   I found it very interesting and tried to find out the difference(s) between the positive and the negative reviews.  The majority of reviews were positive and most were honest about their assessment of the product line. Playboy This is probably the most accurate review we have had about Vaportini.  The writer contacted me, and I sent a product for her to try.  She lists the pros and the cons (Vaportini is not for every drinker) for everyone very well.  Please read the Playboy review to really understand the product. Buzzfeed This next review is from Buzzfeed and they begin by taking quotes from a Dr. that has never tried the product and is fairly inaccurate with the science.  Then they have the staff try the product and they enjoy the experience.  This wraps up our press in a nutshell, once people try the product they understand the product.  It is that unique that it is hard to describe until it is tried. YouTube Reviews We have had quite a few of these and the good thing is that you can see the reaction to the first time someone tries a Vaportini.  It is a difficult to describe experience but seeing these will help you get a sense of what it is all about before you try it for yourself.  Please check out the reviews from, the high rise, Alex Mandel, and Common Man Cocktails to get a sense of the product. Dr. Oz Dr. Oz is a more entertainer than Doctor nowadays and his review was a little fantastical.  He embellished a little at points but you can check out part of his segment here. Please give us your reviews and feedback also so we can continue to improve the Vaportini products.
