What Scratch code? I buy cotton bacon in my local store and there ain't never no scratch code. That being said I ain't got no idea if it's V1 or V2 that they stock buy I ain't never dissapointimed. I find that the cotton taste goes away if I blow while it fires for 20seconds. I wouldn't worry too much about a 4$ product, but I always trust fasttech when they say authentic.

Sounds like you are vaping on v1, because v2 has zero taste.
