“Blue Lush Puppy” by This Juice

This Juice Logo

Time for another juice review here at the Belfast Vape Bar. Which juice? You ask, This Juice of course! The gents were kind enough to send us out a few of their best sellers for us to try out. Today we will be reviewing their “Blue Lush Puppy”.

The blenders describe this product as “Capture the flavour of the amazing blue raspberry slush drink, without the brain freeze” Based on the description, this sounds like quite a few flavours that are available on the market today and some that we have reviewed in the past, the bar is set quite high here!

For this review we will be using the following hardware:

Chances are that you have seen This Juice promoted on social media, they have a rather devout following which speaks a lot for the products quality. The line is available in 70/30 VG high, juices are available in 15 and 100ml glass bottles and 0, 3, 6, 12mg nicotine strength.

Each of the different flavours includes a unique label to distinguish the flavours of course. The labels contain all the necessary information regarding the product, such as nicotine strength, necessary warning markings, VG/PG ratio and information about the blenders ie, social media contacts etc.

Taking an initial sniff from the bottle reveals the juicy sweet raspberry that was promised in the blender’s description. Not much else to report here, only that there is no artificial or chemical-like smell with this juice.

The Inhale – The inhale from “Blue Lush Puppy” almost has menthol-like properties, very cool and refreshing with notes of the blue raspberry.

The Exhale – Cue the nostalgia, memories of those delicious iced beverages come pouring back with the exhale. The description for this juice is spot on, a delicious cool blue raspberry which makes in my book for an all day vape. This juice tastes great in both dripping and tank based atomizers with good vapour production.

Would I buy this product? Having purchased this before from This Juice, I’m going to say yes. An all day vape which isn’t too painful on the pocket book.

“Milk Man” by One Hit Wonder

Before we get started on the review, I would just like to send a huge thank you to the folks at Republic of Vape for supplying this product for the purpose of this review! The store has a massive line of juices as well as hardware which is available instore or via their website:

republicofvape-header-logo-190

Now, onto the juice at hand. This is a line that I’ve had my eye on for quite some time now and today we will be reviewing “Milk Man” by One Hit Wonder, the blenders describe this product as:

A delectable blend of strawberry fruit and cream. The Milk Man E-Liquid has notes of uniquely refreshing milk cream on the Inhale followed by subtly sweet undertones of fresh strawberries that builds over the course of each vape

“Milk Man” has a 70/30 VG high ratio and is available from Republic of Vape in a 20ml (UK made version) and the massive 180ml (US made) which also includes 2 empty 15ml plastic unicorn bottles. Available in 3 + 6mg Nic

For this review, we used the following hardware:

One Hit Wonder Milk Man

The two 15ml unicorn bottles included with this juice is a fantastic idea. Simply fill up from the massive 180ml and you’re ready to head out or if you’re dripping all day you can just carry the big bottle.

Lid up – A sweet, creamy strawberry which is very akin to a strawberry milkshake. Smells good enough to drink!

Time to get this on the RDA for a proper test, if the initial sniff is anything to go by, this will be an exceptional vape. As mentioned before “Milk Man” has a 70/30 VG high base so you can run this juice through most modern subohm tanks but for review purposes we’re trying this on an RDA.

Inhale – The creaminess promised by the lid up is there with subtle notes of the strawberry. Being 3mg, the throat hit is minimal.

Exhale – Cloudy milkshake goodness! This is definitely an all day vape for me, “Milk Man” is one of if not the most accurate strawberry milkshake-like vape I’ve tried so far and the top shelf like presentation seals the deal. Strawberry flavours that we’ve sampled in the past can sometimes present a chemical/artificial like aftertaste but thankfully this is not the case here!

Sweet and creamy, the way a milkshake should be. Now, would I buy this product? €66 from Republic of Vape for the 180ml and €15 for the UK made 20ml, yes I will be buying more of this in the near future!

Big thank you again to the guys at Republic of Vape for giving us the opportunity to try out this product.

“Riverboat Gambler” by Hippie Holler

slide1a

They always say not to judge a book by it’s cover. These people can’t always be right…..right??

Introducing Hippie Holler Premium E-Juice Ozarks Missouri, a family who blend a rather unique looking line of juices. The presentation which really opened our eyes here at the Belfast Vape Bar! Every 40ml bottle is shipped in it’s very own little wooden barrel with the company logo on the side and the juice name and nicotine strength on the lid. Straight off the bat we’re giving Hippie Holler top points for presentation as we have never seen anything quite like this.

The folks at Hippie Holler were kind enough to send us their line of products for the purpose of review and today we’ll be trying out their “Riverboat Gambler” The line has a nice high blend of 85VG/15PG making this a great juice for a dripping based atomizer. Available in 0, 3, 6mg of nicotine and describe this juice as:

Sit on the bank with the Riverboat Gambler and enjoy the rich and savory notes of this oak steeped liquid. Double down with our most elaborate blend of robust flavors dripping with ancient spices and a light, refreshing underlying note

For this review we’ll be using the following hardware:

  • Steam Crave Aromamizer RDA V2 Hex w/0.3Ω Dual build
  • RDA wicked with Kendo Vape Cotton
  • Joyetech Cuboid Mod @ 70w

Riverboat Gambler

Lid Up – “Riverboat Gambler” greets you with a very pleasant blend  consisting of orange, coconut and faint almost liquor-like notes… This is a first for me, normally I would avoid juices with liquor flavours as it’s a rather tricky blend to master. It’s time to get this juice on the flavour chaser and get to the bottom of this!

Also, as mentioned before the Hippie Holler line are available in 40ml bottles and as you can see above, the bottles are quite tall with a narrow neck. The blenders have thought this through and included a much longer dripper lid which reaches the whole way down to the bottom so not to waste a single drop. The Inhale seems to be dominated purely by the citrus notes with just subtle hints of coconut, this is not a bad thing by any means but we shall see what the exhale has to offer for this rather complex blend.

If you’ve ever tried Malibu rum with orange juice and enjoyed it, then this is definitely the e-liquid for you! The Hippie Holler line have been oak steeped and leaves just the slightest oak-like finish to this juice. The individual flavours have all revealed themselves on the exhale and blend superbly to make for an enjoyable vape which lingers on the tongue. Being quite high on the VG side (85%) we would recommend that you use “Riverboat Gambler” in an RDA and close the airflow off just enough so that you can experience the full flavour of this juice. For me, the Aromamizer RDA V2 Hex is usually my go to flavour chaser and did not disappoint.


Now, would I buy this juice?

I’m going to say yes, the little wooden barrel aside although it is a great little keepsake with multiple uses. Before “Riverboat Gambler” I was never a fan of liquor flavoured juices but after this, I can now say that I’m a fan and for $19.99 plus p+p it’s quite reasonable for a juice of this calibre.

“Irish Cocoa” by Nom Nomz

I’ve been hearing a lot about Nom Nomz over recent months – and rightly so. As a Northern Irish manufacturer of premium e-liquids, Nom Nomz has been generating a lot of excitement amongst the local vaping community, with its slick marketing and wide range of flavours to choose from.

So who are they? Nom Nomz describe themselves as an artisan e-liquid company that only use the highest quality ingredients in their products – all of which are of pharmaceutical grade as well. They encapsulate a lot of fun in their style; check out their website and convince me that it didn’t bring a smile to your face. A lot of work has been put into building a solid brand here, and one can only assume that this is a clear reflection of the effort that has also gone into the crafting of their products as well.

So today, I’m excited to be bringing you a review of their newest flavour, ‘Irish Cocoa’. This is the first flavour by Nom Nomz that I have personally tried and was one that, upon hearing the description, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. The official blurb describes this as, ‘a big mug of delicious hot chocolate with a shot of traditional Irish cream, topped off with a generous helping of whipped cream’. How can anyone with a sweet tooth resist the sound of this?

Irish Cocoa is available at strengths of 3mg and 6mg, and is made up of a VG:PG ratio of 80/20. Not only do these come in the usual 30ml bottle size, but – as with all of Nom Nomz’ products – are also available in 100ml bottles.

I have been trying Irish Cocoa out at a strength of 3mg over the past few days. Know that I am not exaggerating when I say that this flavour fits its description perfectly. I have never actually tried Irish *cough, Bailey’s* cream in hot chocolate before, having only mixed it with coffee previously. This e-liquid has opened my eyes to new possibilities – why have I never mixed Irish cream with cocoa? These flavours compliment each other so well. While I have many favourite flavour combinations that I’d love to find the perfect e-liquid to replicate, this is the first time an e-liquid has made me want to mix up some ingredients and indulge in the real thing.

The first flavour that hits me is the sweetness of the chocolate – or to be more exact, the cocoa. It isn’t overbearing like milk chocolate, but reflects more of the traditional, rounded taste of a good old mug of hot chocolate. Then – my favourite bit – the Irish cream steps in and takes over. This is really true to taste. The exhale releases the whipped cream on top – and with the high VG, this is a seriously creamy vape from start to finish. The cocoa isn’t overpowered by the other flavours (Irish cream does tend to take centre stage in my beverages, but maybe I just use far too much…) and it can still be tasted on the exhale as an undertone.

As you can probably expect, this is quite an indulgent e-liquid and I did find that I preferred it more in the evenings as a treat as opposed to being a suitable ADV for my personal liking. It is a very special flavour and one that I am overjoyed to have found – it now takes centre stage on my current shelf of vape-able digestifs. Next on my agenda: to buy some cocoa and whip this treat up for (traditional) consumption.

“Lemonada” by Anon Juice

Anon Juice Baner

Greetings folks, Stevo here from the Belfast Vape Bar with another juice review. The gentlemen at Anon Juice were kind enough to supply us with their for the purpose of review.

As many of you know, I’m an avid user of Pink Lemonade flavoured liquids and when I saw “Lemonada” I jumped at the chance to review it!

Blenders describe “Lemonada” as;

“Red berries turn pink, blend with tart, refreshment no drink, deep in your heart.”

Anon Juice liquids are available in 15ml and 100ml bottles in 0,3,6 and 12mg of nicotine strength. The designs are very striking with the brand name/logo standing front and centre (with the Guy Fawkes/Anonymous mask) All the appropriate warning stamps are in place along with the nicotine strength. All of which are clear and easy to read.

“Lemonada” and the rest of the line have a 60VG/40PG ratio which makes this an ideal tank vape. However, you can feel free to use this in a dripping based atomizer as well. After speaking with the proprietor of Anon Juice directly, we were told that there is a strong possibility that the line will soon be available with a higher percentage of VG for all you cloud chasers out there!

For this review I will be using the following hardware:

Lid Up – Straight away you’re greeted with a rather zesty lemon aroma, the juice is called “Lemonada” so based on the blender’s description and the writing in pink so I assumed that this would be a pink lemonade flavour but from the initial whiff from the bottle, it seems like it’s going to be just a zesty lemonade…

Time for the inhale. With a fresh dual coil build on the Hastur RDTA reading at 0.2Ω with some Kendo Vape Cotton thrown in there, we’re good to go. The lemon is real with “Lemonada” a very refreshing citrus vibe on the inhale.

The exhale has the same awesome lemon taste which reminds me of a certain lemon flavoured cough sweet… Don’t get me wrong, it’s in no way a bad thing but the 40PG ratio does make the vape a tad harsher.

Would I buy this liquid? I’m going to say yes, for an all day tank vape “Lemonada” by Anon Juice is very enjoyable.

“Pink Lemonade” by Sleekit Juice

With the sheer volume of high quality products on the market today, finding that ideal All Day Vape has become rather daunting. As well as the price that’s attached to some of the premium quality brands.

Finding a nice all day vape at a competitive price has become a personal challenge to me as I’m very close to one year off the smellies!

Enter Sleekit Juice, a UK based blender. Currently they have thirteen different flavours in their arsenal at 70VG/30PG and are available in 3mg and 6mg of nicotine strengths.

The story behind Sleekit Juice is rather modest with honest intentions, to provide a high quality product that doesn’t make your wallet cry!

It was never our intention to start selling e-juice but the quality and cost of some of the products on market was really disappointing. So we decided that we wanted to provide a quality product at a fair price for everyone to enjoy. And so Sleekit Juice was born – premium juice at a budget price.”

They were kind enough to send us a bottle of their “Pink Lemonade” in 3mg for us to review.

For this review I am using the following hardware:

  • Uwell Crown Tank w/0.25Ω SS Coil head
  • Joyetech eVic-VTC Mini

As mentioned before, Sleekit Liquids come in a 70/30 blend VG high and only costs £15 GBP for a 100ml bottle making this the cheapest pre-made liquid that we have reviewed so far!

Right! Let’s talk about the liquid itself, the blenders have described their “Pink Lemonade” as:

Classic Pink Lemonade is everyone’s favourite, this tangy juice wont disappoint”

Straight to the point with no bells and whistles, personally I appreciate that! No prancing around with a tedious amount of adjectives.

A fresh coil head installed in the crown and the tank filled to capacity. The inhale greeted me with a very sweet lemon without the harshness I have found in similar juices. Very akin to that of a certain Pink Lemonade flavoured glucose drink…

Personally I found this liquid best vaped on a temperature controlled device with the sweet spot for me being 560°F but as with all things vaping related, it’s entirely subjective so find what’s right for you and be sure to let us know on the Belfast Vape Bar Facebook Page

The exhale is where the taste buds really got a workout! The same zesty lemon as before but with notes of what I interpret as sweet tangerine? With underlying tones of Raspberry to finish off. With this being a 70% VG based liquid there is a decent amount of vapour as well.

As many of you well know, I am rather partial to Pink Lemonade flavoured liquids and for an all day vape I would highly recommend Sleekit Juice. It’s not an overpowering or sickening beverage flavoured liquid but one that I am more than happy to vape throughout the day!

 

“Earl’s Indulgence” by Decadent Vapours

Manufacturer’s Description: ”A delightfully soothing fusion of black tea and bergamot with delicate notes of blossom and citrus.

Statistics: Earl’s Indulgence by Decadent Vapours., Available in 0%, 0.3%, 0.6%, 1.2% and 1.8% strengths, Available in 15ml bottles , 40%PG/60%VG.

Vaping statistics: 0mg strength, vaped on a Smok TFV4  with TFV4 RBA, Dual 5 wrap Kanthal coils resulting in  0.5Ω ,mounted on the Smok X Cube Mini @ 15 and 30 watts.

Now, admissions out of the way right at the start. I’m not a tea man, I’m more of a coffee fella. This being said, the initial bottle note of this particular liquid had an interesting warmth and earthiness to it, reminiscent of an Earl Gray tea. There were slight tinges of bitterness to it, the bergamot peeking through, floral notes teasing through occasionally.

However, the opening puffs of this particular liquid prove to be bitter tasting, almost burnt, as if you had left your tea stewing for too long. The burnt taste becomes overpowering after a few moments. The retrohale offers no respite from this taste, it remains overpowering to the point of offensiveness.

Unfortunately, the liquid does not improve towards the rear of the tank and this disappoints, although credit where credit is due, the bergamot highlights that poke through the burnt taste are an absolute pleasure to experience, while it isn’t as sour tasting as a lemon, it is definitely more bitter than a grapefruit. Despite this, it’s present in such small moments that it doesn’t add into the unpleasant taste of this liquid.

I was unable to finish a thankful of this and despite not being a fan of tea and associated flavours, I was actually disappointed, the flavour seemed to set itself up well on the bottle note and was a flavour I was genuinely wanting to be pleasant, one I could sit and puff away on while reading a book in order to feign some degree of sophistication and it just simply did not deliver.

“Crave” by Decadence E-liquid

“…Decadence is about savouring deeply rich, bold flavors and letting my passion for that come through for everyone to enjoy.” – James Davitt (Proprietor)

Today I am doing a review of ‘Crave’ by Decadence E-Liquid, a gourmet flavour from their bespoke collection. As you can immediately appreciate from the design of the bottle and packaging, this is a classy brand that clearly tailors its range towards those with a taste for finer flavours.

Firstly, I’d like to share a bit about the company as there is limited information available online whilst their website is preparing to go live. For me, the ethos of the manufacturer holds just as much importance as the quality of the end-product itself; this probably stems from the ethical practices that come with vaping – something that you become acutely aware of when distanced from the tobacco industry.

The key aim of Decadence is to provide unique, quality flavours within a market that is fast becoming saturated with mass-produced, gimmicky tastes that lack creativity or original thought. To a smoker seeking to enter into the world of vaping, the choice of flavours can be intimidating. Worryingly, there is a disproportionate amount of cheap, unfulfilling flavours that would send any would-be vaper running back to the consistent taste of their usual tobacco brand.

Thus, companies such as Decadence seek to provide high-quality mixes that remain consistent in both quality and taste. What is really special about Decadence, however, is that James – the brains behind the operation – has spent most of his life working as a chef. Experimenting with flavour is truly his forté, and his range of e-liquids echoes the honest flavours that one could expect from the professional taste palate of an experienced chef.

There are only a small range of flavours available by Decadence – and this signifies the time and effort that James has spent in crafting the flavours that he deems to be of the quality expected of a company such as his. Each of the flavours available has been made in tribute to something that holds particular meaning to him, and ‘Crave’ is no different. James describes Crave as a tribute to his upbringing in New York city, hailing fond memories of ice cream parlours, candy shops and cream sodas. It is a testament to him that he takes inspiration from his roots and generously shares the flavours that he loved as a boy with an audience of vapers who will also hold a nostalgic love of these authentic tastes.

I have been using Crave over the past week at a nicotine strength of 3mg. It is a 30:70 PG/VG ratio and this e-liquid, as with the rest of their range, is available in a 30ml bottle. The flavour is described as ‘a cotton candy cream soda bursting with fruit flavours that pop in your mouth.’ I’m not normally a fan of fruit-based e-liquids, but I chose this one as I was intrigued by the cotton candy cream soda profile.

After consistent use of this e-liquid, I am hooked on the depth that this flavour offers. On a warmer inhale, the cotton candy flavour is wonderfully authentic, with underlying tones of caramelised sugar. The exhale brings overtones of fruitiness, providing a refreshing contrast that compliments the sweetness of the cotton candy. Without these fruit tones, there would be a danger of this flavour becoming overbearing in its sweetness. However, Decadence have reached a perfect balance between the sweet flavours of the cotton candy cream soda and the tartness of the fruit.

You can clearly taste that this is a tribute towards the flavours loved throughout one’s childhood. With the smell and flavour of ‘Crave’, I was transported back to memories of fairgrounds and warm summer evenings. Before trying this e-liquid, I assumed that the title of ‘Crave’ related to the indulgent meaning of the brand name ‘Decadence’. After a week of vaping this, I’ve changed my mind.

To me, this makes one crave the innocence and simplicity of one’s childhood days and is a most nostalgic and thought-provoking flavour. There is nothing gimmicky here – only authentic, honest and true flavour. Each vape brings a depth that allows you to explore the different tastes that present themselves and I have yet to tire of this juice.

I have still to try the other flavours available by Decadence, but I am so excited to do so. James has created something unique with ‘Crave’, and his sincerity as a creator comes through strongly with this product. If the work that has been put into crafting this is anything to go by, the rest of the range will be something to truly appreciate. Decadence E-Liquid is not only of the highest quality with real honesty in its ethos, but is a range that will be truly fascinating to explore. I cannot wait to try more.

“Purple Nurple” by G2 Vapor

Welcome back to another E-Juice review by Foxy.

In this review we will be looking at another one of the G2 Vapor lines called “Purple Nurple”.

I have been reviewing G2 vapor products for quite some time now and I feel that I have gotten to know the brand in depth and have came to realise just how much work goes into the production of their range of juice.

The presentation of Purple Nurple is somewhat familiar to me now as with the rest of the G2 range whereby the bottle is clear glass with the typical black dropper bottle lid. The label is very presentable with a nice purple colour and an image that appears to contain a bunch of grapes.

On opening the bottle I am hit instantly with the most nose tingling Grape smell that I have ever encountered and my mouth starts to water immediately! Its very difficult to get the perfect grape flavour without being overpowering in one way or another so I am very curious as to whether Purple Nurple will be any different.

For this review I will be running the IPV Mini2 with the Troll RDA using my usual dual coil 0.28Ω build and my wattage will be set to 70W.

On the inhale I am instantly smacked in the face with a fresh grape flavour similar to that of a popular US Grape soda which is also available here in Northern Ireland in a burger eatery of all places lol! This taste is unmistakable as grape has always been a hit or miss flavour in my humble opinion.

On the exhale I am also given another surprise when I get a subtle hint of sugar sweet honey… I would have never though that honey and grape would have went together but it works and that’s a certainty!

So to wrap this review up all I have to do now is ask myself if I would buy this juice once my review sample is empty! I am pleased to say that yes I would indeed. The flavour profile is somewhat hard to describe but I have to hand it to the guys at G2 Vapor for really pulling it off!
