    I really like Milked, on my second bottle now.

    Been vaping the RedRish(6mg) on and off as well. Not yet made my mind up about it, gives me a crazy throat hit from 25w up on a 0.7ohm(Delta2) and 0.5ohm(RDA) build.

    The milk is damn nice and on par with some of the premium juices i have been vaping, its really smooth and the flavor is excellent now if only i can get the fruit loops flavored one and they can start making a lemon sponge cake one like the cloud company sky one i will be a happy chappy. ( @Vapington please take note and make us a lemon one :D:D:D)

    Fruloop is my favourite to vape. 2nd is strawBshake! Both insane! Smoothest vape light throat hit when wattage is a bit high. Milked took time to get use to. But also a not to bad at all:) Id be happy with a bulk box supply:)

    The NCV juices are all fantastic, and quite unique. Bear in mind that they are high VG (80/20) and as such needs to be vaped with the right equipment and power - they work best with good airflow (RDAs like Dark Horse/Mutation X/Doge/etc or dual coil RTAs like the Goblin/Goliath/Silverplay/etc) and decent power (Mech's at around 0.4 or Regulated devices at around 20-60W, depending on coil). Of course a lot will depend on your specific tastes as well.

    Once you find that sweet spot though they are simply stunning - world class juice produced locally :rock:

    Guys dont want to offend anybody and just asking advice.
    I used milked , strawshake and fruloop.
    Reo , 1 ohm fresh battery in cyclone atty silica wick, and the same but 17 w on kay4 1ohm .jap cotton
    Forgot to add A derringer 0.5 ohm at 30 w jap cotton as well .
    I cant get any of these juice to perform properly. I really dont get any flavour of it , an example milked has more a strawberry flavour that strawshake but all of them are really doll. Any suggestion ?
    Please remember im not attacking any vendor or anybody just want to get the same experience people are talking about

    I got the same from Milked and Stwabshake. Flavour is a bit muted. Being high VG I presume they meant for dripping so on a dripper they went at low ohms the juice almost broke down. It tasted like they where cooking a bit. At higher ohms the flavour just wasn't there IMHO.

    I have the StrawBshake, and it really shines in the Derringer at 0.3 ohm and below. Try dropping the Derringer to 0.4 ohm minimum, 3mm ID coils. Also, I use Dischem cotton balls, Jap cotton tastes funny to me with any juice, might be worth a shot, and it's a cheap wicking material if it doesn't an out.

    Fruloops is probably my favourite local juice at the moment (Please get more stock). It is a bit muted, but as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, they shine on a dripper. I run it at 30w on a 0.5ohm stock atlantis coil and it gives me more than enough flavour. I think a big part of that is the atlantis itself.

    The StrawBshake i am not a fan of. Its ok in the dripper and i cant stand it in a tank. But it think i am just over strawberry flavours. After i first got it, i let it steep for about 2 weeks, that brought out the flavour a bit more. so now im keeping it for when all my other juices are running low to get me to the next order. Next i will give the milked a shot.

    Ok I will try help you guys struggling. If you want to get the best out of them you are going to have to vape them in the right setup. Aim for a warm, dense vape setup thats where they will shine. I do not water down my juice at all so its very thick which means that you really need to have a setup that wicks very efficiently. If the wick doesnt keep up you end up with a weak flavour because the juice is not actually getting to the coil fast enough because of the viscosity. Its like when your tank gets really empty or a wick starts getting dry and you start getting less flavour - same thing is happening. Once you get the right setup you will be smiling.

    Here are some recommended setups:

    Drippers (build around 0.3 ohms)
    Dual coil RTAs (warm, dense vapor helps) ie. Goliath, goblin, billow v2 etc
    Subohm tanks used at the recommended wattages
    Temp sensing setups can work really well

    You are welcome to PM me for me tips or advice if you need.

    Even though I am a more fruity than milky kind of guy, the strawberry shake was awesome.

    I bought ncv fruloops 1.5 recently so I could compare it to my own flavour. Unfortunately it tasted like buttery popcorn( which I began to enjoy:confused:) I'm just a little confused if maybe I got a bad batch.

    Thats very odd. I tested the batches and they were fine. What setup are you using it on may I ask? Should definitely not be getting popcorn flavour haha!

    Ok so I've used it in a subtank with a normal nickel coil. I've used it on a plumeveil dual macro coil .30 ohms on rDNA 40 30 watts. Velocity single 6 3 strand twisted then retwisted together .27 ohms. All taste pretty popcorny to me :rofl:

    strawBshake - 3mg

    Disclaimer :

    As always - Taste is subjective, the impressions in this review are my own. You might have a different experience.

    VG / PG :

    80 / 20

    Device :

    eVic VT (using Temp Mode) – Silverplay V1 / Kayfun V4 Combo

    [​IMG]

    Coil Setup :

    Dual 31g Nickel - 8 wraps - 2mm - 0.07 ohm

    [​IMG]

    Wicking Material :

    Japanese Cotton

    Temp Control Setting :

    I found my sweet spot at 270'C - 40W

    [​IMG]

    Method of Vaping:

    Straight lung hits.

    Website Blurb :

    A luscious milkshake always goes down a treat! A blend of plump, juicy strawberries with thick, smooth ice cream with just a hint of sweetness.


    My Impressions :

    A thick, slightly tarty strawberry with a sweet milky cream flavor on the inhale. Exhale produces more sweet cream with a strawberry tart kicker.

    Final Notes :

    Very smooth juice with lovely creamy features. Mouth feels full on inhale, and if you close your eyes you almost get the feeling of actually taking a sip of strawberry milkshake. The slightly tarty finish you get on both inhale and exhale enhances the strawberries. No artificial or perfumey tastes here. I do get more of a sweet cream than an Ice cream vibe here, but man oh man is the cream smooth and divine. The sweetness also has a very (and I do mean VERY) slight vanilla taste to it. It feels as if there are layers to this juice - like the strawberries are floating on top of the milky smooth cream.

    Throat Hit :

    No throat hit at all on 3mg

    Cloud Production :

    Clouds Galore (but then again we all know that high VG juice will produce ample amounts of the fluffy white stuff :p )

    You Might Also Like :

    VooDoo Juice - Bloody Sunday
    Suicide Bunny - Mothers Milk
    (I suspect MMM - Strawvana might fall here too, but I still need to review that. Will do a review on that next while the NCV is still fresh in my mind. ;) )

    Avoid If :

    Sweet / creamy / strawberries are not your thing

    ADV?

    Yes, Strawberry and Milkshake lovers will find this very appealing

    This isn't a very detailed review, just some impressions of NCV Milked & StrawBshake.

    My first order was 0mg - by accident, thought I had ordered 6mg, and really enjoyed the very subtle but rewarding flavour profile of these juices, vaped through it in no time, and also discovered one very useful feature of the 0mg - it can rescue other juices very very well. This stuff is the ultimate mixer juice I've encountered so far.

    Bland custard vapes come to life with either of these added.
    Works wonders with certain cereal flavours that have gone overboard with the lemon/fruit circles flavour.
    So not only are they really tasty flavours, but great mixers that can really save some of those flavours you may have lying around ;-)

    That said I've found that I really like these in 0mg - I tried 6mg and the taste was completely different and not really to my liking.
    I haven't tried 3 or 1.5, but I've found total satisfaction with 0 so I'm not going to mess with the others.

    So that's my two thumbs up for (0mg) Milked & StrawBshake.

    Thank you @baksteen8168 and @method1 for taking the time to share your experiences of the juices, really appreciate it!
    @method1 I agree with you that the 6mg juices give a slightly different experience - nicotine certainly adds a dimension to a juice juice - and my line was always intented on being more suited to low nicotine with soft (excl redrish which is a sharper flavour) subtle flavour profiles which are best at higher wattages and accompanied by some warmth and quite clearly nice to add to other juices to balance them out as they are not hard hitting in your face flavours - I wanted balance.

    Thanks again guys :)
