    DNA – JAVA SHAKE

    Local

    Purchased from: Vape King
    Price: R180/75ml

    Flavour Description:
    a “sweet and creamy cappuccino milkshake”


    VG/PG: 70/30
    Nic: 0mg (vendor error – 6mg was ordered online)

    Mod: iJust 3
    Coil: Commercial - Kanthal Net and Multihole HW-M 0.15 ohm
    Watts: 80W

    My comments:
    The above description of the juice is absolutely correct – it does indeed taste exactly as I would expect a cappuccino milkshake to taste. The flavour is light and creamy and not overly sweet.

    The cappuccino flavour is mild and could perhaps be just a little stronger. For me, it’s not suitable as a wake-‘n-vape, but it’s a most enjoyable ADV. In fact, I’ve finished the 60ml bottle in just a few days – and I’m trying to squeeze the last drops out!

    Would I buy this juice again: A resounding yes!!

    EDIT: Changed bottle size from 60ml to 75ml

    @Hooked - I hope you do not mind me hijacking your review template. I thought to keep it the same with a few amendments and additions:

    DNA – VANILLA MILKSHAKE


    Local

    Purchased from: Vape King
    Price: R180/75ml

    Flavour Description:
    a “thick Creamy and Delectable vanilla milkshake.”

    VG/PG: 70/30
    Nic: 3mg

    Mod: iJoy Captain PD270
    Atomizer: Augvape Intake Single Coil RTA
    Coil: Wotofo Ni80 Fused Clapton 3*26/36 (0.2 ohm)
    Cotton: Cotton Bacon Prime
    Watts: 40W

    My comments:
    Tastes exactly as the flavour description. It is thick, creamy with a very creamy/malt like vanilla. It's also quite sweet. Been mixing quite a few vanilla milkshakes but never found an authentic one and most always has the pepper / artificial / weird taste. This is a winner for anyone who loves a vanilla vape.

    Would I buy this juice again: Definitely

    @Wimmas

    I don't mind your hijacking my review template in the least. " Imitation is the best form of flattery." :-D

    You could even review the same juice which I, or someone else, has reviewed. It would be interesting to get another opinion!

    I liked your review and I wish that I had bought the Vanilla :smiley_1140:. I absolutely love vanilla, but I was totally focused on the coffee.

    This is why:

    Neither had I @Silver! A new coffee is always exciting for me, but particularly so when it's an unknown (to me) brand.

    I second the conclusions of both these reviews.
    Found all four their profiles to be very enjoyable especially the Cream Soda and Java shakes. :)

    DNA – STRAWBZ SHAKE

    Local

    Purchased from: Vape King
    Price: R180/75ml

    Flavour Description:
    “Fall in love with this deliciously crafted combination of fresh sweet strawberries into a rich creamy milk for a delicious take on an old favorite strawberry milkshake..”

    VG/PG: 70/30
    Nic: 3mg

    Mod: iJoy Captain PD270
    Atomizer: Augvape Intake Single Coil RTA
    Coil: Wotofo Ni80 Fused Clapton 3*26/36 (0.2 ohm)
    Cotton: Cotton Bacon Prime
    Watts: 40W

    My comments:
    Tank was washed, new coil and wick before I tested. I used to be into DIY and on the first hit I tasted a lot of similarities from Wayne Walker's "Quik" recipe. It is not a 1:1 clone, but very similar - maybe Wayne's recipe was used as inspiration for this one. It is thick, creamy, sweet and does taste like a proper strawberry milkshake.

    All and all a good juice for those looking for an authentic Strawberry Milkshake.

    Would I buy this juice again: Probably not, but it's not because it's not good. I just prefer strawberry vapes like Jamslam, Jam Monster and Wurl'd.

    I recently got the Java Shake and I am very impressed with the flavour profile. Out of the 3 other coffee juices I've tried, DNA is the best.

    I mainly got the 0mg nic one to mix with another coffee juice which was 3mg, as I found that the 3mg was just too harsh for me. And even though I got the 0mg DNA, by itself, it's still really impressive, as some 0mg juices I've tried just feel flat without the nic. I usually try stick to 2mg as my standard, but a lot of juices only start at 3mg.

    I tried the Milky Shake - supposedly a Milky Bar milkshake. Very disappointing. Almost no flavour. Such a pity. DNA_Milky Shake.jpg

    Me too. Maybe my expectations were too high considering how spot on the other DNA flavour profiles are. Leaving it to steep a few weeks and try again.

    Just shows one how subjective vaping is... I like the Milky in my Augvape Intake Single Coil. Probably the most authentic white chocolate juice I have ever vaped. Secret for me is to alternate between a strong fruity ice and bakery/dessert everyday - I cannot remember when last I had vapers tongue!
