OPERATION APPLE DROP by Flashbang Vape

US-based blenders Flashbang Vape were kind enough to send us one of their rather uniquely presented juices for the purpose of review. Flashbang Vape originally hit the market with their own brand of tequila but has since moved into the e-liquid market. They also support US military veterans and donate to several charities from their profits.

Today we will be reviewing OPERATION APPLE DROP which the blenders describe as “The first of a mix of flavors in our Flashbang Vape line. If you love an all day vape Operation Apple Drop is the one for you.”

Enjoy fresh sliced green apples dipped in delicious creamy oatmeal. Pairs perfectly with your morning coffee.

For this review we will be using the following hardware:

  • Goon RDA w/ 0.46Ω dual coil build
  • RDA wicked with Cotton Bacon
  • Lost Vape Therion DNA 75 mod
operation-apple-drop-mod-bottle

Let’s jump straight to the presentation, as it is truly unique for an e-liquid to be presented in such a manor! An M84 replica with a pump-style dispenser inside! A fantastic concept which really makes this product stand out from the crowd. When you’re hanging out with friends or at a vape meet and this bottle comes out of your backpack, it will definitely turn some heads.

Juice Specs:

  • Available in 120ml bottles
  • 78/22 Max VG Ratio
  • Ships in 0, 3 and 6mg nicotine strengths

The M84 Dispenser is filled up and reporting in for duty! Before we move forward with the flavour test, let’s take a little sniff from the bottle. The apple-like aroma is the foremost scent so far, not like a fresh apple but more of a sweet apple syrup.

The Inhale – This is a first for us here at the Belfast Vape Bar, a creamy oat-like flavour. Subtle notes of the apple are present but the porridge is the dominant flavour on the inhale.

The Exhale – The apple now takes center stage with the same creamy oat flavour lying in wait. These two flavours blend together surprisingly well with OPERATION APPLE DROP. We were expecting a more bland/chemical tasting vape but were pleasantly surprised.

Would I buy this product? It’s a yes! Once you get past the novelty presentation, there is a high-quality vape lying in wait, this juice is perfect with a coffee and isn’t overpowering. We just need to wait on some UK based suppliers!

“Devon’s Crunch” by Devon’s Finest E-Liquid

Devon’s Finest is a small British e-liquid manufacturer. They have been kind enough to send us four of their juice for review. This is the first of those four reviews.

“Devon’s Crunch” is available in 0,3 and 6mg nicotine and has a VG/PG ratio of 60/40.

The main flavours, as described by Devon’s finest, are sweetened oats, milk and sugar.

My set-up is as follows:

  • Dotmod Petri (double airflow cloud cap)
  • Dual flat twisted – 3mm – 9 wraps – Coming out at 0.30 ohms
  • Wicked with Rayon
  • Snow wolf 200w – Set to 125w

This juice comes in a 10ml plastic bottle. It is also available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. The label includes a simple image of a cloudy sky. The nicotine strength is shown with a hand drawn tick, the VG/PG ratio is present in the small print. The brand name is clear, however, the name of the juice was only present on an additional printed label stuck to the bottle. It was a little messy looking but it’s what’s inside that really matters.

Despite the manufacturers description, I can smell coconut from this liquid. It smells like a “Nice” biscuit, but let’s see how it tastes.

Inhale – This is quite a confusing e-liquid. Until I read the description I was sure it was a coconut based flavour, but once I read it I could make out a porridge like taste on the inhale.

Exhale – This is a sweet, creamy porridge taste. Im still insistent that it contains coconut but either way it is delicious. The aftertaste is sweet and sticky feeling and definitely leaves you feeling like you want to vape more of it.

In conclusion – This would make a great ADV, it is flavorful but subtle. The sweetness is well balanced so that your taste buds won’t get bored with it. Vapour production would be described as average. All in all, I would certainly recommend it. I don’t think it would be offensive to anyone. And at 30ml for £4 you can’t really go wrong. “Devon’s Crunch” has left me looking forward to reviewing the rest of the range.

French Toast and Milk by Meo eJuice

Time for another review from the Canadian MEO eJuice range. This time, we will be reviewing “Frech Toast and Milk” from the Milk range. Yes, I know this sounds rather unusual but we will get to the bottom of this rather peculiarly named juice.

The blenders describe this product as “Crunchy french toast cereal splashing in milk” slightly confused by the description which lead to some research, so it turns out that there is a cereal brand released in the mid 90s which this juice seems to be based on. Personally, I haven’t seen or heard of this product in the UK before, so we’re just going to have to give it a thorough taste and see what unfolds.

The Milk range from MEO eJuice is available in 30 + 120ml glass bottles. Nicotine strengths 0, 3, 6 and 12mg. There is no VG/PG ratio listed on the MEO website or on the bottle, but judging by the consistency of the juice, we’re going to guess that it’s 80/20.

For this review we used the following hardware:

  • iJoy Tornado RDTA w/0.22 dual Alien coils
  • RDTA wicked with Kendo Vape Cotton
  • Twisted Messes Mod @ 80w

To be brutally honest, when this particular juice first arrived at HQ, I was not keen on the sound of it at all! This, of course, was the assumption that the “French Toast” was referring to the savory dish, as mentioned above, the cereal variant isn’t one we have in Northern Ireland. So, with the Tornado RDTA filled we can now move on to the taste test.

Lid Up – this is very much a sweet scenting vape! Notes of syrup and cinnamon are present, the initial smell of this juice is making quite a few promises. There is also a cake-like or perhaps even a pastry aroma.

Inhale – Sweet syrupy cinnamon, promises from the Lid Up are being delivered which make the Inhale of French Toast rather satisfying on the palate.

Exhale – The collaboration is now complete. The syrup, cinnamon, notes of almost jam-like notes with just a hint of something baked have all rolled together. Please do not let the name put you off, “French Toast and Milk” is a must try juice. Is it an All Day Vape? It certainly is, in fact there’s actually none left in the bottle. We’re going to need to source more!

“Crunch and Milk” by MEO eJuice

MEO inc is a Canadian company whose name stands for “Mother Earth Organics. They do not use any artificial additives or sweeteners, food colouring or DAP in their “Milk line”. They have been kind enough to send us a sample of this line for review called “Crunch and Milk”.

It is available in 0mg, 3mg and 6mg nicotine. MEO inc describe this juice as high VG, this is typically 80-90%.

The manufacturers description is ‘A mouthful of your favourite cereal, soggy with sugary milk.’

One of my favourite e-liquids is “Vape Flakes” which has a very similar description so I’m really looking forward to trying this one and finding out how it compares.

My set-up is as follows :

  • Tugboat V2
  • Dual quad twisted 26g kanthal – 5 wraps – 0.13Ω
  • Wicked with Rayon
  • Snow wolf 200w – Set to 149w

This juice comes in a 30ml glass dropper bottle. A 120ml bottle is also available. The label is quite simple but effective. The name of the liquid takes centre stage and is very easily read. The background consists of some very cute, smiley clouds. The nicotine level is included on the label, in my case this is 3mg. Appropriate warnings and a list of ingredients can be found in the small print. No mention of the PG/VG ratio on this bottle.

I was really excited on opening this bottle has the smell that I had released was really similar to the leftover milk in a bowl of “Frosties” cereal. This was exactly what I was hoping for from “Crunch and Milk” Time to find out if the taste can live up to expectations…..

Inhale –  The inhale reveals the milk that was promised. There is some sweetness detected but not much in the way of flavour.

Exhale – I love this juice! If you heated up the milk at the bottom of a bowl of Frosties, I reckon this would be the result. It has the sweetness and the creaminess of the milk but it also takes on a texture that fills in the gaps between this juice and an actual bowl of Frosties.

In conclusion –  If you like “Vape Flakes” or “Milk and Honey” you will be a fan of this juice. The organic ingredients provide piece of mind in a time when it can be difficult to decide what we should and should not be vaping. “Milk and Crunch” delivers what is promises and with it’s high VG content, produces beautiful, almost odourless clouds.

This would make a great ADV. It isn’t something you would easily tire off. In fact I find myself craving it after vaping on some more intense flavours.  I don’t think this is one you should miss and I don’t imagine you will regret buying it.

“Sundial” by Decadent Vapours

Manufacturer’s Description: ”A scrumptiously smooth blend of golden cereals with a dab of dried berries and a splash of sweetened milk.”

Statistics: Sundial 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 Uwell Crown with Uwell RBA, 5 wrap Kanthal 0.55Ω coil mounted on the Smok X Cube Mini @ 15 and 30 watts.

Another day, another review. Today, it’s Sundial by Decadent Vapours. Once again, I can’t help but be impressed by their packaging, the bottle itself is squirreled away in a rather attractive cardboard sleeve, child proof bottle is always a plus. However, I did notice that the combination of colours used made reading the text on the label a bit of a bother.

Once the cap had been removed, I gave it the customary curious sniff. Sundial greets you with an oddly oat-like bottle note and lashings of fruitiness, making it a fresh scent to enjoy.

Unfortunately, that’s where it starts to fall flat, the first few puffs of this liquid were particularly bland, the promised berries and cereals were nowhere to be found. All it presented off the bat was a rather bland, almost smoky taste.

As I progressed down the tank, it didn’t change, instead retaining its almost offense blandness. It got to the point that I had to put it down for fear of making me feel sick. I had even left the liquid to steep for a week, giving it a chance to settle and the flavours to infuse. Even after giving it a good shake to ensure everything had thoroughly mixed and loading up the tank to give this a second chance it hadn’t improved. It was bland.

It’s unfortunately, the flavour profile set out by the manufacturer made this liquid sound divine, however, in comparison to other liquids that boast the same flavour (See Horror of Yig big Grimm Kvlt) this liquid just fails to stand up to task.

“Sleipnir” by Valhalla Vapes

How’s it going guys Gilters back again with another liquid by

“Valhalla Vapes”

With this liquid I’ve noticed the description unlike the others by Valhalla Vapes having a very short straight to the point flavour profile.

“Hopefully” fingers crossed not meaning less effort has been put into this liquid but let’s not jump to any conclusions yet.

“Sleipnir “

Cereal based juice with a fresh citrus burst.

On opening this bottle I’m getting a very distant lemon and slight biscuit scent, I’ve personally always found citrus can be too potent in liquids so this seems like it might be on point with what my senses enjoy when it comes to this style of liquid.

Time to get stuck in today I shall be using my

SMOK XCUBE ll – 70-100w

Wotofo Atty3 – dual 22g @ 0.23Ω

So on inhale at 70w AGAIN I’m not getting much with these liquids time to bump up the power to 100w, finally I’m getting something a very very light creamy note on the back of the tongue with the lemon creeping around in background. Subtle though enjoyable.

On the exhale this one’s rather hard to describe, remember those little thin round lemon biscuits our grandparents would pull on a Sunday afternoon with a good cuppa, this is pretty much bang on that exact flavour. A nice light lemon with a subtle creamy biscuit goodness.

The big question would I purchase this in the future, Ummmm yeah most certainly. I could vape this all day and most certainly goes perfect with tea in hand.

“Chateau” by Decadence E-Liquid

Welcome back to another E-Juice review by Foxy!

In this review we will be looking at “Chateau” by Decadence ELiquid.

As you can see on the Belfast Vape Bar site, I have already had the pleasure of reviewing “Midnight” by Decadence and I couldn’t find a single bad thing to say about it across the entire spectrum! This is a rarity in a juice as everything is subjective of course! For me I am all about first appearances and when the Belfast Vape Bar team met James (The Owner) we were instantly bowled over by his willingness to introduce us to his brand!

The presentation of “Chateau” is identical to that of Midnight where the bottle is a frosted glass with a smooth label featuring all the correct warning symbols for global sales! As before though, I am curious about the corrosive symbol on the bottle but I think this is purely there to be one step ahead of upcoming legislation where the a**hole governments try to restrict E-Juice sales by using any excuse to hold them back!

The Decadence E-Liquid line is available to purchase from the Republic of Vape B+M store or via their Website.

“Chateau” is described as: Crafted for those with truly exquisite taste. A lemon butter cake pulled fresh from the oven covered with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream finished with a touch of caramelized brown sugar.

On opening the bottle I am greeted with a delightfully creamy smell which would put me in the mind of cereal and maybe cream or custard? Either way I am itching to get my first hit of this golden potion!

For this review I will be using the Smok TFV4 tank using the quad coils on the Tug Boat #Tuglyfe mod with a custom Signature Tips drip tip and all bottom airflow holes fully open.

On the inhale I am greeted with a nice lemon flavour which is mixed with a slightly cereal taste too. As I hold the vapour in the cereal flavour becomes more distinguishable and starts to taste more like a nice fluffy lemon cake!

On the exhale I still get the delightful lemon cake in the background but there is a much more pronounced flavour starting to really push through. I am a lover of fresh creamy vapes and with the lemon cake I start to get a hint of vanilla ice cream with what can only be described as a slight drizzle or caramel. ABSOLUTE DELIGHTFULLNESS.

So now that we are at the end of the review it is time for me to ask myself whether I would go out and buy this juice once my review sample is finished. I am delighted to say that I certainly would! The flavour profile is exactly what I have been looking for in most of my vaping life =)

“Old Norse” by Valhalla Vapes

Welcome folks to another review by Shinx! This time we have some goodies from Valhalla Vapes which have kindly sent us their entire line for review!

Today we are trying out “Old Norse” which has been described by Valhalla as

Our first recipe to be created from Odin’s secret flavours will you become a slave or voyage to conquer all other’s?
Creamy rice pudding with a touch of raspberry jam.
Pudding fit for the gods!”

Yet an other favourite of mine! A dessert vape!!

The bottle itself as before is nicely designed with a Norse inspired label with the tagline “A horde of liquids from Valhalla Vapes. E-liquids forged in war!”
Also is all safety info as well as batch number, best before date, nic level (which in this case is 0mg) and VG/PG ratio which inn this case is 70/30.

Upon opening the bottle I was greeted by a tart raspberry. Not too tart though while not too sweet! Not the milky/creamy smell I was initally expecting!

Hardware im using for this review is the Smok X Cube II set at 65w and a Troll By Wotofo with a 0.25ohm dual kanthal build.

My initial inhale was not what I ws expecting. I was expecting a very creamy vape but it is not even vaguely like it! I got Milk, crisp fresh Milk very much like other US cereal style vapes I’ve tried before.
There is also a tart while slightly sweet raspberry. Very pleasant and goes very well with the cereal style milk.

On the exhale still no sign of creaminess but the almost sour raspberry takes a front seat while the milk/rice flavour moves into the background.

Cloud production with this juice is very good! Not ground breaking but not too shabby either!

So would I buy this juice when my 10ml bottle runs out? Yes I would! This was very different to what I expected! I was expecting a very creamy vape with a sweet raspberry thrown into the mix but what I got was very different!
This was much fresher than a heavy creamy vape almost to the point where it was almost quite refreshing!
For those who like U.S Cereal Milk type flavours, then this is one for you!

“Mustache Milk” by Charlies Chalk Dust

Welcome back to another E-Juice review by Foxy.

In this review we will be taking a look at “Mustache Milk” by Charlies Chalk Dust.

We have been waiting for a few months on this juice to arrive and it is by pure chance that we managed to get it this time round. The initial review bottles were sent out via post but appear to have gotten lost in transit! Whilst at VapeFest we managed to get to meet the guys at Charlies and they sorted us out with their entire line on the day!

Charlies Chalk Dust is relatively new here in the UK and personally I haven’t seen too many people vaping their juice. To be honest I don’t know why that is as I am in love with this juice already even before I open the bottle!

The presentation of the juice is unlike anything I have had the pleasure of reviewing so far with the bottle proudly being “Painted” with an almost chalk paint which reflects on the overall branding of the line! The entire bottle is white on the outside which includes the dropper top and the plastic lid section.

For this review I will be using the IPV4-S with the Turbo RDA running a dual coil 0.37Ω build and my wattage set to 80W with airflow fully open.

On opening the bottle I am greeted with the sweet smell of my all-time favourite…. Can you guess what that is?? Cereal! When it comes to vaping I have to be the first to admit that I am a cereal junkie so will this be another all day vape for me??

On the inhale I get the most perfect cereal flavour with has to be a first for me! I’ve yet to get cereal on the inhale from a USA made juice… Normally the cereal is on the exhale which is nice but the inhale is the most crucial for me especially when chucking those sick clouds! As I hold the vapour in the cereal really starts to develop on my taste buds and produces a mild fruity flavour the longer I hold it in for!

On the exhale the fruit flavour that was starting to develop really makes its appearance felt in the nicest possible manner! The fruit flavouring is somewhat unique in the fact that I get a mixture of pomegranate and maybe a little hint of Strawberry and cream.

Presentation: 10/10
Flavour: 9/10
Vapour production: 8/10

Once my review sample is finished would I go out and buy this bottle again for myself? I have to be honest and say no in this instance. Mustache milk just isn’t for me I’m afraid but this is just my own opinion. The flavour profile is fantastic and is of very high quality.

“Tru Blue” by Kilo e-liquid

Welcome back to another E-Juice review by Foxy.

In this review we will be taking a look at the final flavour from our friends at Kilo USA.

We met with the chaps of Kilo when we were down at Vapefest this week and I have to say that their staff really are a delight to talk to and this really makes Kilo stand out from the crowd!

I have personally had the pleasure of reviewing 3 out of the 4 juices sent to us from Kilo and I have yet to find a single juice with a not so good flavour profile! Will this maybe be the one to knock Kilo down a few pegs?? Read on to find out more!

The presentation of the bottle is like their entire range. The bottle is a 15ml bottle with a rather appropriate sized sticker wrapped around containing all the correct UK warning symbols etc.

On opening the bottle I am greeted with a sweet yet smooth cream flavouring with an undertone of a little something else which I would assume is Blueberry.

For this review I will be using the #Tuglyfe Box mod with the Dark Horse RDA in single coil mode with a reading of 4.2V and 0.5Ohms.

On the inhale I am greeted with a delicious blueberry flavour which is somewhat similar to the KiBerry Yoghurt I reviewed previously. The longer I hold the vape in for the stronger the blueberry flavour becomes. At this point I start to notice a rather thick cream flavour come through at the back of the nose.

On the exhale the cream flavour kinda mixes with the blueberry but there is also a hint of cereal lurking in the midst of this wonderful mixture of orgasmic flavours which rounds off the exhale to perfection!

Flavour: 8/10
Cloud production: 8/10
Presentation: 8/10

So after this review sample is done would I buy more?? Yup! I’m a Kilo fan to the end thanks to their awesome flavours and high VG content as standard!
