    As promised. Just a bit later than usual.

    Juice Name: Tempest Ice
    Manufactured By: Emissary Elixirs
    Flavour Profile: Delicious fruits with a kick of ice.
    Packaging: 60ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Emissary Elixirs for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label needs to be studied a bit more carefully as you won't see on the first glance exactly what is on it. You can see exactly what the name is and all other relevant information.

    The full flavour description of this juice is : "A simple yet refreshing blend of tropical fruit punch with notes of tart grapefruit, litchi, vibrant pineapple and other fruits with a kick of ice."

    With the finger tasting test I get a very strong ice taste mixed with tropical fruits, the menthol does overpower the other flavours with this test, but it also doesn't irritate your throat.

    Inhaling is an icy kick of fruit flavour, I get a tropical mix blended with light litchi, sweet pineapple and a bit of guava.

    With exhale the fruit flavour mix leaves your palate first leaving you with only the cool ice on your palate. No overpowering between the flavours and the ice balances the flavour off nicely.

    With this tricky mix of flavours, I have to say I am really liking this one. I do prefer this one in the tank.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I am not sure.

    Review time:detenido:

    Juice Name: Papaya
    Manufactured By: Blends of Distinction
    Flavour Profile: Sweet papaya, ripe melons, and tropical fruits .
    Packaging: 30, 60 and 100ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from @Blends Of Distinction for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    This juice falls under the Ice Pop range launched and was launched at VapeCon.

    The label is plain and simple, Ice Pop stands out a lot with a picture of papaya, the juice name and all the necessary information is also visible. What I like is the label colour matches to the flavour profile.

    Papaya is usually a compared to the taste of melon often very sweet but only if it's ripe, if it's not ripe it has little to no flavour. Luckily, the one used in this juice is sweet.

    With the finger tasting I get a very strong papaya taste, not very sweet with this test. I also get hints of the melon and tropical fruits.

    Upon inhale you are blasted with a sweet papaya taste blended with melon and other juicy tropical fruits. Also, what is a quite nice is the iciness that follows the flavour.

    With exhaling you will find the chilled semi-sweet mix taste leaving your palate and the flavours are exactly the same as with inhale. It is one of the few where inhale and exhale do not differ.

    The flavour is very good on the RDA. Just bear in mind Papaya is not a something for everyone and if you can't handle the fruit I don't think you would like this juice as the flavour is pretty much spot on to the actual fruit.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Debating..

    Juice Name: Butterscotch Brulee
    Manufactured By: Esheli
    Flavour Profile: Rich Butterscotch base topped with a layer of caramel
    Packaging: 60ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3, 6 and 12 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Erich at @Esheli for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    Plain and simple label with an image of a yummy looking brulee and some butterscotch sweets. The name stands out a lot and all the information that you will need is on the bottle.

    With the finger tasting test I a decent flavour release of butterscotch, followed by a minimal caramel taste and it does irritate my throat a bit.

    With inhale I was at first very surprised that I got the taste of tobacco, but I confirmed no tobacco just your typical sweet caramelized sugar with a blend of butterscotch.

    With exhale, there is not much difference in taste except pure sweetness and the dark caramelized sugar comes through a lot.

    I am not a big fan of dessert vape juices, this one tastes fantastic but it's sadly not an ADV for me. If you are a dessert lover, give this one a go and let me know your thoughts.

    This one needs some heat to complete, so turn up the watts and enjoy!

    Would I buy a bottle again? Nope.

    Happy Monday fellow vapers.
    So this blond broke the coil wire on the Wasp this weekend and I really do not have the patience to fix it myself.

    So I took it in this morning to get fixed and pay a minimal fee. Just got it back and I am one happy person.

    For any mod issues, do give these guys a go. I highly recommend them.

    I like a tight wick through the coil because it stops the popping and crackling and give me a much smoother vape... and the result is that when I change wicks it's very difficult to remove the wick which has swelled even more... the easy solution is to take my scissors and cut the one side of the wick and then pull from the other side! Boom!

    Does wicking a RTA very tight not result in 'Choking'? I know people used to say when wicking that you want some tension but not too much when pulling on the cotton.

    Not for me using Titanium Fiber Cotton Elite. I hate spit back and popping... I have had no issues with my Dvarw DL's tight through the coil and thinned out a bit on the tails!

    Take a look at Morten Oen's videos on wicking. It is a four part series. I have posted the link to the first one here.

    As Morten Oen says....

    "We have all done it wrong. Again. According to Jurin's Law the capillary effect is stronger the tighter space you have to lead your fluid through. But viscosity plays a role, and in vaping we are not fighting gravity. As a conclusion after making this video, I would say; don't fluff your cotton, and make your wick as hard as you dare".

    Review time again people...

    Juice Name: Trinity Ice
    Manufactured By: Northern Craft Vapes
    Flavour Profile: Kiwi fruit, white grapes and strawberry on ice.
    Packaging: 30ml Glass Bottle or 120ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3, and 6 mg (120ml - 3mg)
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Mike at NCV for review purposes. This review was done on the 120ml 3mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The bottle come packaged in a nifty little box and both designs on the box and bottle look the same. Trinity written big, bold and in blue and this stands out a lot on the white. The box also has a snowflake on top. All the other necessary information you will need is also on the both the bottle and the box.

    With the finger tasting test I get the sweet taste of kiwi, grapes and strawberry followed by a very strong ice taste. Slight throat burn.

    With inhale I was expecting this overpowering blast of ice, but I am happy to confirm that is not the case. You yet some sweetness first from the kiwi, grapes and strawberry and then gracefully followed by the ice flavour.

    With exhale, I get minimal traces of the fruit flavours but a fantastic ice effect leaving your palate. No too little, not too much, just enough.

    I prefer this flavour in the RDA's for maximum flavour and vapour release.

    This one should really be added on the ADV list for summer.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Yes.

    Juice Name: Alpha
    Manufactured By: Emissary Elixirs
    Flavour Profile: Nutty corn flakes, milk and caramel.
    Packaging: 60ml and 120ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Emissary Elixirs for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    Full flavour description is as follows :
    "Dulcet flakes of nutty corn, toasted until golden, then drenched in malty, full-cream milk layered with ribbons of glossy, soft-crack, caramel, and finished with a light dusting of powdered sugar."

    I like the label design, the colour of the label gives it the vintage effect with your not so average alpha. You can see the name and manufacturer clearly with all the necessary information.

    The classic line range flavour names are inspired by folklore and fairy tales.

    With the finger tasting test I get the sweet taste of caramel and flakes, none of the other flavours are present here. Also, I get a funny aftertaste.

    Upon inhale I get a milky caramel taste, and with the powdered sugar and light traces of the flakes. No funny aftertaste is experienced with inhale or exhale.

    With exhale this complex mix of flavours of the flakes, the caramel, the milk and the dust of powdered sugar leaves your palate on a high note.

    This is one of those flavours that I again prefer in the RDA.

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

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The labelling of the bottle is pretty straight forward, purple in colour with the manufacturer name, juice name, flavour profile and all of the other necessary information that you will require.

    When I first saw custard, I was a bit sceptical as this can either complete ruin a flavour or it can make it extremely delicious.

    With the finger tasting test I got a very strong berry taste blended with the custard, and a bit of a harsh throat burn. Never the less, into the tank and RDA it goes...

    With inhaling I get the sweet taste of berries mixed with custard and the two flavours really do compliment each other very well. The flavours do not overpower each other.

    This juice really reminds me of jelly and custard, like your mom used to give you when you were little.

    With exhale, I get minimal traces of the berries, but a great taste of custard is left on your palate that finishes the flavour off nicely.

    I prefer this juice in the NRG and the RDA. I am a little bit disappointment by the amount of vapour release. But, and this is a good but, it's one of those juices you can take to the bar or a restaurant and enjoy without sending out emergency smoke signals.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Not too sure.
