    Juice Name: Nilla’Spresso
    Manufactured By: Elysian Labs
    Flavour Profile: Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee Cake
    Packaging: 60ml easy dripper bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30 PG / 70 VG

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The packaging is clear and precise with the flavour profile indicated on the bottom right of the label.

    Very striking design with a cute little cartoony cake image.

    When you look at the name, all coffee and cake lovers will jump up and down. Because who doesn't love coffee, right? But sadly in my opinion it lacks the taste of coffee, so this one will be more for the cake lovers.

    With the finger tasting you will find that the flavour is not too cakey with just a hint of cinnamon and minimal traces of coffee.

    Upon vaping the buttery vanilla taste itself again is a little overpowering but the taste is luscious, the only downfall is that the flavours are a bit unbalanced. If the flavours were balanced perfectly it would be a coffeeholics dream juice.

    Will I buy a bottle again? I believe so.

    Please remember the coil/wick stain rating works on the severity of the stain (so 5 stars will make it bad).

    Really interesting!
    It's soooo hard to find a good coffee, as a coffee lover. Something that doesn't taste like instant with artificial sweetener and creamer and something that doesn't absolutely destroy coils.

    Chanel, will you only be reviewing DL style flavours? Or MTL too?

    Review Time:wasntme:

    Juice Name: Green
    Manufactured By: Fusion Vapes
    Flavour Profile: Sour Apple Candy
    Packaging: 30ml Glass bottle with dripper or 100ml Plastic Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: Max VG specified (88%)

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The Fusion Vapes juice line was successfully launched at VapeCon in 2017.

    The label is black putting emphasis on the colour green. It is unique and shows all the necessary information.

    With the finger tasting test you get the sweet apple taste with a little hint of sour candy. Absolute spot on flavour.

    On first inhale, you get the mouth-watering taste of fresh green apples and on the exhale some very real tasting sour candy comes jumping across your palate.

    What I like about this juice is that it is not overpoweringly sweet and then sour, it rather has a nice balance between the flavours.

    The only thing that I dislike is that if you vape it too much it makes you very thirsty. But that happens if you eat a packet of sour sweets as well.

    If you like sour candy apple juice, you will absolutely LOVE this one.

    Would I buy another bottle? Most definitely, we have already destroyed 3 bottles.

    Review time:aaaaa:

    Juice Name:
    Strawb
    Manufactured By: Northern Craft Vapes
    Flavour Profile: Fruity Cereal Loops with Strawberry Milk
    Packaging: 2 x 30ml Glass bottle with dripper or 120ml Glass Bottle with dripper.
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg (120ml only available in 3mg)
    PG/VG Ratio: 70VG/30PG

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    Strawb was successfully launched on the 2nd of August. Making it a brand new juice on the market but it is making quite the buzz.

    The 60ml option is packed in a nice convenient box with 2 x 30ml bottles (you know His and Hers lol). The bottle itself is white with black text and a shocking pink mark. Truly haven’t seen packaging like this before and it is conspicuous.

    With the finger tasting test you can taste the fruity loops and a strong strawberry milky flavour. Not too fruity, not too milky. It is just right.

    Upon vaping, it just gets better and better. Smooth, fruity taste with a perfectly balanced creamy strawberry flavour on exhale.

    It took me back quite a few years to my very younger years when I was visiting my grandparents in the Karoo for school holidays and I always had fruit loops for breakfast and drinking up the flavoured milk afterwards, saving the best for last.

    Little Tip:
    The flavour comes through a lot better on an RDA on low wattage.

    Will I buy a bottle again? Yes.

    Surprise review...
    This one is a bit more different then the usual.

    Juice Name: Artemis
    Manufactured By: Elysian Labs
    Flavour Profile: Lychee, Strawberry and Creamy Pear
    Packaging: 30ml easy dripper bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 24 and 48 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 40% PG and 60% VG

    These Nic Salts were sent to me by Rob Fisher to review and it forms part of 4 flavour reviews over the next couple of weeks.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The packaging is clear and states that it is Nic Salts aka Elysian Salts. With the flavour profile indicated on the side of the label.

    With the finger tasting you will find that the strawberry is very creamy with a dash of lychee, can't seem to taste the creamy pear. I will not advise tasting too much of it with the finger tasting test as it is very strong.

    Upon inhale you will find the strawberry overpowering the other flavours, but you do taste the lychee a bit more still no traces of pear.

    With exhaling there is a rich strawberry taste with the lychee flavour finishing it off nicely. I believe the creamy pear was used to blend the flavours together.

    Overall I would not say it's a bad, but it is definitely not something I will use the entire day.

    That is why I have multiple pod's :)
    To chop and change between different flavours.

    Will I buy a bottle again? I don't think so.

    These products are specifically designed for use in pod base devices only. Please do not use Nic Salt e-liquid in your RTA's, RDA's, RDTA's or Sub-Ohm Tanks.

    @Chanelr 2 stars for coil friendly means that it's a bit harsh on the coils? And does smokers high refer to the buzz or satisfaction or throat hit ? Is this rating for the 24mg or the 48mg?

    Great review format and review

    @daniel craig thanks for the questions.
    Will help me improve a bit more on the next one.

    On coils, it leaves a bit of a stain.
    Smokers high will be the satisfaction and throat hit.

    And review was done one the 24mg.
    I might just die a bit on the 48mg;)

    Am I reading it correctly this way:

    2 stars means it's harsh on coils (5 stars would mean it's clean on coils and doesn't gunk them up easily)

    2 stars for Smokers high would mean it's harsh (5 stars would mean it has the perfect amount of throat hit and is smooth)

    Salt Nic is a tricky subject. Salts can change flavour profiles and by masking the throat hit sometimes makes it difficult to self-titrate your intake. A distinction also needs to be made between MTL salt nic and DL salt nic juices. Nic Salts are an artificially produced form of nicotine developed by companies like JUUL to help their atomizers deliver the required nicotine levels. This could only be achieved by increasing the levels to almost 60mg so salts were developed to soften the throat hit. Much like what the tobacco companies did to extract more nicotine from the tobacco it resulted in a more addictive product. So I am quite keen to hear about your experiences relating to this aspect of using Nic Salts, and if you experienced it differently? Better or worse than free base nicotine.

    Thanks for the info Mic.
    As a heavy smoker, Nic Salts was the only thing that helped me give the stinkies the boot.

    Personally, if I was not an ex-smoker I would not have used it. As I have seen in our friend group, if they use the pod they get cravings for the stinkies. But its just my opinion. I absolutely love nic salts, they saved me:happy:

    So I switch between the pod and the vape, that way I dont get 'gatvol' of the taste and revert back to bad old habbits.

    Review time...

    Juice Name: N’Dulge
    Manufactured By: Gbom Vapes
    Flavour Profile: Mango Cardinal
    Packaging: 60ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 2 and 5 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The N’Dulge Mango Cardinal was successfully launched on the 27th of July.

    The label is very eye-catchy, and you can see exactly what it is from a distance. It also shows all the necessary information that you will need.

    Gbom Vapes describes the flavour as: “A fresh selection of only the ripest Malaysian Mango’s blended with a few other sexy exotic fruits to the likes of passionfruit, mangosteen and cantaloupe. All with a slight tickle of ice.”

    Now, I have never had a Malaysian mango before but if it tastes like this, it must be pure heaven. With the finger tasting test you can taste the juicy ripe mango flavour with a small hint of ice.

    Upon inhale, you get the explosion of fruit flavours exactly like Gbom describes it. With the smooth icy finish. Not too little, not too much, just the right amount to balance it off. With exhale, you still get the exact same flavour having a celebration on your palate. You would think with this rich flavour you will get a funny aftertaste, but this is not the case at all.

    The flavours have been blended to perfection. When I vape this, I can imagine myself sitting on an island somewhere sipping some cocktails, but the sad story is I am sitting here in Jozi

    Would I buy a bottle again? It goes without saying.
