I have been vaping Tribeca, Voodoo, and Freedom ever since I got my Triton tank kit, and have been very happy.
However, I recently started to a desire a more pure tobacco flavor. I gave this a try and I really like it. I am now shifting away from Voodoo and Freedom and rotating almost exclusively between Longhorn and Tribeca.
I also want to eventually give Torque56 a try too.
In terms of flavor, I think Longhorn tastes more like pipe tobacco than a cigar. It definitely doesn't taste like a robust or bold cigar. If anything it tastes like a very mild flavored cigar with a sweet taste to it.
If you're a cigar aficionado, then this might not do it for you, but you'll definitely like this better than a lot of the other flavors.
Right now, I am rating Tribeca and Longhorn as my 2 favorites...

I Rather Enjoy Thisby Fuego Johnson
Definitely not my favorite, but a very solid juice indeed. It has a sweet and somewhat smokey flavor and is actually quite light. If you want a good throat hit I would recommend raising the nicotine level. Definitely worth a try.

Sweet Vanilla Experiencesby Paul
Slow day at work so I tried the 12 in my g6. I am new to vaping. It has a very smooth and warm taste. But is definitely sweet. The vanilla hit is reminiscent of a pipe smoke, comes on strong if not anticipated. Doesn't match the name as much as you would anticipate. Think this would have been better if it had a bolder more robust tobacco earthy taste. Think I'll try to mix this with one of the other tobacco flavors, may mellow the strong vanilla kick out.
If your like me and enjoy a good pipe taste every once in a while, this is the one to pick.

Debate is still out on Longhornby CaptDonna
I have a local reseller that carries HALO gives a locals discount..So I normally get over once a week to go through testing what I haven’t tried yet! Great thing when your local shop offers a HALO test bar!
Longhorn is definitely a hard flavor to describe, I’ve read several that say “Swisher” but I’ve never had one so I can’t compare. Right out of the tester it definitely reminded me a pipe tobacco scent.. which made me a little less eager to try. Then I noticed a bit of chocolate there (admittedly a chocoholic!) Being Husband was with me, I let him be the tester. After seeing the look on his face well I couldn’t help myself!
First flavor that hit me was actually vanilla then some sweet honey (not TOO much) RICH that definitely comes to mind REALLY Thick Vapor - have to say the MOST vapor I’ve had on any HALO e-juices that I’ve tried. (24mg must be why).
This is just definitely one of HALO's "give it a try" – you won’t know until you do. If you’re lucky enough to have a taste bar, local reseller go there or order a sampler size. Me being the menthol vaper and Hubby being the tobacco vaper he’s going to use the sampler 24mg we bought before deciding to go 30ml
(Which I must point out may be why it “got” me so much – I’m under 12mg on all my juices)
All in all I still have not had a HALO juice that hasn’t been vaped! Thanks HALO for keeping us on our toes and vaping along!

Closest to what we smoked.by Gary
If you like a "light" cigarette with full flavor than this is the one to get! After trying Tribeca, Prime 15 and Turkish tobacco we found that Freedom Juice matches the flavor and hit of a real cigarette.

must steep this before usingby Paul
At first I was very much unhappy with Longhorn. It had an undeniable Sharpie marker smell, I kid you not, it smelled just like a sharpie marker. I was very nervous about vaping something with that high of a chemical smell. I tried it and yup, same nasty chemical marker taste.
Instead of throwing it away I read a few reviews and decided to let it steep a few days and boy what a difference that made.
I don't really have any words to describe this other than maybe slightly sweet.??? Nothing like Tribeca, not even close. That is a slight butterscotch. Longhorn is like a ever so slightly sweet tobacco. Just a little sweet so you know its there.
I could vape this all day.
Let it steep people, it's true flavor comes out after a few days.

Now I understand Steepingby Travis..
I tend to gravitate to stronger, fuller flavors while vaping. I ordered a small bottle of Longhorn in the 12mg strength (I wish more reviewers would include nicotine level as that can change the impression a lot). To say that I was disappointed would be an understatement.
I had read of steeping but had just adopted a usual practice of popping the caps off overnight and calling it good. Most flavors have been really good with just this minimal amount of airing out. Longhorn? There was a really strong/unpleasant background flavor that almost had me ready to toss out the bottle. I am so glad that I didn't! I let it sit in a dark drawer for nearly a week uncapped. I took it out and gave it a good shake.
Wow, what a difference! I loaded up half a mini tank and then proceded to fill it all the way up after trying it a couple of times. So much smoother and still full bodied. While not an ADV (yet) , it has really come a long way. A full-bodied tobacco with a subtle, sweet background. I may try another week(ish) and give it another go. I really want to see this one's potential.

Nice..nice tobacco flavorby Diana
Again, Halo has out done itself with this winner. I love the mild cigar hit and the vanilla/honey undertones. I've smoked cigars before in the day and this brought me back to those day for the milder cigar hit. It is definately a winner in my choices and I'll continue to purchase on a regular basis. It's not harsh on the vapor and I love the after taste. Thanks Halo!

Great juice... Not my favorite thoughby Bryan
This is a solid tobacco vape. You cant really go wrong with Halo tobaccos. My local "tobacco store" now carries Halo supplies so I can get them any time :) Amazing!!! I have a bunch of the sample size (7ml) bottles and this was one of them! To me, its a vanilla ish pipe ish taste... I don't want to call it pipe tobacco but it's got a deep flavor. I really hate writing reviews because it's hard to describe the flavors. If you're looking for a robust tasting tobacco, this might be your favorite!

Well Suited to Its Monikerby l_strider_l
I have an acquaintance on ECF who practically idolizes this stuff. So I finally broke down and asked my evil friend to swap me some. I had some pretty high expectations due to the praise and my impressions of Tribeca. I am not typically a tobacco flavor fan so I have limited experience in the many varieties. Upon reception of my Longhorn I immediately sensed it might be strong so I let it steep the recommended 2 weeks. My first vape through my trusty RDA was what I expected, yet it was curiously appealing. I liken Longhorn to a smooth Virginia type tobacco blend. A very subtle sweetness and a strong throat hit made the flavor uniquely satisfying. For those who are looking for an all day tobacco vape, I think this is for you.
