    As it is always of interest to me when seeing juice reviews, I like to know what they were tested on.

    My specs will be

    Jelly box mini with single coil Intake (Clapton 24/36 @.4)

    MMM said I had to with the Lime milkshake with this one. Steeping ? whats that ? Oh that's that thing where you wait awhile. Nah gotta be some shake and vape too. 25ml per flavour and then I will mix more for the steep.
    Into the tank it went and I kept a gentle 25 W until all the cotton broke in and then turned it up from there. Gotta say there was little joy here. Single clapton in what is essentially an RDL tank. Pushing up the W did nothing for the flavour and at 50W was just a harsh mess.
    Right from the start I had a feeling that these juices were going to be better at DTL and with RDA's and mesh tanks. The Intake was so bad I might even drop it out of the reviews, but not just yet, don't judge a book by it's cover.


    Mechman tube with Voopoo PNP tank and mesh coil (Turbo @.2)

    Strawberry milkshake. Once more a shake and vape straight out of the bottle. At 30 W I was getting a really nice strawberry on the inhale but the exhale felt a bit thin. After a short while I got to the mesh coils optimum level which if memory serves is 37-45.
    Now the juice shines, you know when you get a good milkshake and it coats the inside of your mouth and you just want swirl it around to get all the flavour. This is what this juice was doing.

    Saturated full flavour, cloud production was a bit heavy but I am using a lot of VG. Strawberry and cream everywhere. Most actual milkshakes I have had always had a thin taste to them, as if they could have used a bit more flavour. This juice does not need that, inhale, exhale down your nose, that strawberry is very prominent.

    Furyan with Tauren solo (tri core clapton 26x3/36 @.25)

    One more thing to add. I will be using an 80/20 VG/PG @ 3 mg nic pre mix base. This will in effect give me 68/32 VG/PG mix and the nic around 2.6. As my preference is to cloud volume, adding 15 ml of PG flavoring will make the mix closer to a a 60/40 if I use a 70/30 pre mix.

    Chocolate milkshake
    My missus walked into the room and immediately said " what is that one , it smells yummy"


    I am going to us this word again and again to describe this juice. No steep, dripped straight onto the Tauren solo until the cotton broke in and then a good old wide open draw.

    Triple M's middle name is magic, he must have put some in this juice. I am a cynical old bugger but this one was WOW. For a shake and vape it was superb, so much so that all 25 ml is gone.

    When I was younger and the kids still at home, you know how they are, they want milkshakes , at 8:00 at night, in the winter and cry when you say NO. We used to make up hot chocolate and we always had some long life cream around which we would whip up for the top.

    The thing is with hot chocolate that it would melt the cream and you got the creamy chocolate taste right from the word go. A milkshake does not do that.

    This juice does. A .25 coil should give me around 55 W on the Furyan, the vapour production was just right, the flavour was full on hot creamy chocolate, again coating everything, the cure for vapers tongue it is so good. It is also consistent, draw after draw was the same wonderfully, not sweet, not bitter, still creamy chocolate. My wife neither smokes or vapes, but she tries things for flavour ... and she pronounced this BELGIAN. You know they make the best chocolate in the world right. Right out of the bottle , you get BELGIAN. Can't wait for the steeped one, no literally I might not make a week.

    My review on the Milky Avenue milkshake one shots created by The Flavour Mill @TFM

    Firstly, thank you TFM for letting me be one of the lucky ones.

    It is no secret, but I have a PG sensitivity so 99.9% of commercial juices out there I can not vape, meaning it's DIY for me all they way and not that this is a bad thing. So, a one shot is awesome for me as I can control the PG levels just as I need. I also usually only vape tobaccos and fruity mixes but as of late have grown tiered of fruits and ventured into milkshakes. When the opportunity arose to be sent not one milkshake but 6 different flavours (Vanilla, Banana, Chocolate, Lime, Bubblegum & Strawberry) I had to jump at it.

    Because I'm reasonably new to Milkshakes I feel a little "under qualified" as opposed to my peers. I also haven't tried all the shakes out there because of obvious reasons but I feel that giving a newbies input on a product is also very valuable.

    For me personally, I am really enjoying these shakes, even the Banana, yes I've never vaped any Banana sort of juice (....lol), the ice is just just right for me and most of all, they are not very sweet at all which I am really happy about. These are mixed at 15% and come in a 30ml bottle.

    I did make two mistakes however, one was to shake and vape, these definitely need a few days (3-5 days) steeping for them to really starting being enjoyable, the second mistake was that I only mixed 50ml of each (but that is being rectified as we speak).

    I am not gonna go into how on the inhale you get this and on the exhale you get that yada yada. I do have my favourites in the group though being Lime, Starwberry and Chocolate, in that order.

    I have used only RDA's (Psyclone Citadel's and An RDA for Vaping's) to vape these Milkshake one shots, squonking of course.

    Once again, thank you TFM for allowing me the opportunity and I wish you all the best with this range, you have gained a customer.

    When you mixed at 15% what would you say the flavour intensity level was in general. Out of three(3) . 1-real good
    2-really real good
    3- really really real good :D

    Update on the LIME MILKSHAKE.

    I felt crap all day due to the 2nd jabbie but by 6 o'clock or so I was feeling a little better and decided that the Lime needed a fair shake. This now went into a clean pod PNP coil at .2 At 20 W not great, at 25 W the flavour is starting to come through, at 30W getting better . At 35 W, we have now hit the sweet spot. At 45 W it gave a hot vape that had an acidic throat hit which I did not fine pleasant.

    At 35W though, the flavour really comes through. Unlike the Strawberry and Chocolate, I did not get the milkshake type cream. What I did get was a very fine tasting Lime. There is a density there that allows the flavour to come through without the creamy coating. It is fresh tasting and does not leave as much aftertaste. There must be a coolant in there as my mouth was saying "ice". What I am enjoying is the cloud volume with all of these one shots. I suspect that these will shine on RDA's, Dual coil RTA's, sub ohm tanks using mesh coils and pods using mesh. I wish I had a Miso or similar to test on.

    The last word on the shake and vape for the Lime is that out of the three so far, this one could be an all day vape.

    I am going to add a No 4 to @Resistance list.

    4 - bloody good.

    To add to this, I needed a pocket vape for a bit of out and about today. So I put together this. IMG_20210818_154330.jpg IMG_20210818_154423.jpg

    A trusty old Pico and the Infamous Wasp Nano. At 40 w the taste could not be any better. I
    re wicked but left the old coil in @.46. That's pretty high for this tank, but anything lower and two draws and your tank is empty. Combine this little flavour banger with that juice and you could not want for more.

    Interesting.
    I'm planning to mix for MTL Too so it's definitely going in the Miso

    15% is a fair whack percentage wise, my adv is only 6% with freebase. I could see this with nic salts and MTL and a higher nic content. Following with interest.

    I'm afraid of nic salts.I do freebase. The flavour percentage is the bit I'm trying to figure out because I normally use the same percentage for DL and MTL.
