Cinnamon Danish by Captains Custard

Manufacturer’s Description: The manufacturer hasn’t supplied a description or flavour profile beyond the name of the juice.
Statistics: Cinnamon Danish by Captain’s Custard, available in 0mg strength and suitable for use with nicotine shots, packaged in 100ml Gorilla Bottles, 80% VG, 20% PG.

Vaping statistics: 0mg strength, Digiflavour Pharaoh RDA, single Fused Clapton coil, 6 wraps (24AWG Kanthal x 2 in parallel with 32 AWG Ni80) coming out at 0.32Ω and mounted on the Lost Vape Therion DNA166, vaped at 50-100 watts. Cotton used was Cotton Bacon V.2.

Before we begin this review here’s a little bit of trivia. Captain’s Custard is produced by the fine folk at Titanic Vapour. The First Mate of the RMS Titanic was a gentleman called William McMaster Murdoch who just happened to be born in Dalbeattie which is where the reviewer was also born. Take from that what you will although I’m sure it won’t introduce any bias.

Now, since there is no flavour profile provided by the blender, I think I should list my expectations for this liquid:

  • As it is part of a custard line, I expect the flavour to have a solid custard base.
  • Since it’s called “Cinnamon Danish”, I expect there to be at least a pastry, sweet role/cake or at least a baked note throughout the flavour.
  • Also in line with the name of the liquid, I expect to be able to taste cinnamon, however, I don’t expect it to be overpowering.
  • As the actual dessert usually is topped with an icing of some description, I expect there to be some degree of sweetness in the overall liquid to match.

To begin with, the bottle note. Popping the cap off and taking in the initial scent of the liquid doesn’t give much away, in my opinion, there is definitely a pronounced spiciness given off from the Cinnamon. Sitting with it doesn’t afford the reviewer much more about the liquid, a slight touch of sweetness but besides the initial Cinnamon note, nothing else.

The initial puffs of this present a pleasant sweetness, throughout each initial puff, the warmth of the cinnamon present on the inhale, especially at fifty watts. A strong custard backbone is also present throughout the entire vape, supporting the sweetness and spiciness of the cinnamon quite well. Interestingly, the custard backbone combined with the sweetener used creates a flavour and mouthfeel quite similar to fresh royal icing. Retrohaling through the sinuses across the back of the tongue and throat reinforces the spicy warmth of the cinnamon without catching at the back of the throat in an unpleasant manner, so no reminders of accidentally inhaling cinnamon powder and dealing with the intense irritation of the throat and the coughing, near choking and burning it can bring with it.

Sitting with it, the flavour continues to be pleasantly sweet, the warmth of the cinnamon persisting and the custard base continues, however, the pastry doesn’t seem to come out until you increase the wattages, the flavour only really revealing itself between sixty-five/seventy-five watts, and it seems to taste more like a buttery, sweet, short-crust pastry instead of a sweet roll flavour, however, it is subtle and doesn’t detract from the overall flavour. That’s if there is a pastry or baked flavour in it at all.

Credit has to be given where credit is due, the flavour overall is incredibly well balanced, the cinnamon is clearly applied lightly and isn’t overpowering (unlike my experience with Bound by the Crown by King’s Crown/Suicide Bunny nor is it too subtle that it’s lost, as I found with the cinnamon element in Them Applez by Coil Glaze). As a custard flavour, it’s a very strong choice in a market that is over-saturated in custards and it’s one I can definitely recommend for the flavour on its own.
Vapour production from this liquid is excellent, especially with the entire line being 80/20, even at lower wattages and despite the ratio leaning a touch heavier on the VG side, having spent quite some time waving the vapour away to allow me to see the computer screen as this review is written.

Overall, this is a brilliant liquid that I wouldn’t even consider hesitating to recommend, a strong, instantly recognisable flavour paired with brilliant vapour production and sets the standard quite high for this line of liquids.
Captain’s Custard is available at all Titanic Vapour stores, including through delivery. It is also available at Vapemagic, Total Vapour and through Titanic Vapour’s website. According to Titanic Vapour’s website, 100mls will cost £19.99 per bottle and will include two 10ml nicotine shots to make it up to a total of 120ml.

Bakers Daughter by Coil Spill

It’s time for another juice review here at the Belfast Vape Bar. This is the first of two new products on the market from US-based blenders Coil Spill. Today we will be reviewing ‘Bakers Daughter‘ which the blenders describe as “A delicious sugar cookie with hints of white chocolate and soft melted marshmallows. Baker’s Daughter is sweet, warm, and satisfying, perfect for fall time vaping“.

The Coil Spill products are dispatched in 60ml glass bottles with pipette. Being a 70/30 VG juice, Coil Spill is ideal for both dripping and tank based atomizers. For this review, we are using an RDA to truly get to grips with the flavours within.

This product was sent to us for the purpose of review by the folks at Vintage Vape Rooms. The Coil Spill line is available to purchase from the Vintage Vape Room’s store in Dublin and from their website:

http://vintagevaperooms.com/product-category/e-liquid/coil-spill/

For this review we used to following hardware:

  • Lost Vape Triade DNA250
  • Vaperz Cloud Mini Fat Buddha RDA w/ flat twisted build at 0.23Ω build
  • RDA wicked with Cotton Bacon v2
bakers-daughter-coil-spill

Taking a little sniff from the bottle before vaping. Bakers Daughter has a rather warm sweet smell, the first thing that comes to mind is the marshmallow but there are also subtle notes of cookie in the background.

The Inhale – The sweetness promised from the initial sniff from the bottle was delivered on the inhale of  Baker’s Daughter, not a sweetness that can become overwhelming or sickly but rather fitting with the aforementioned marshmallow.  No sign of the white chocolate or cookie here yet…

The Exhale – We decided to use the juice in an RDA as mentioned before, the sweet spot for us was at 120w. The flavours were complimented at the higher temperatures with more of them being present as well. The exhale of Bakers Daughter revealed the same sweet marshmallow as with the inhale but the white chocolate has finally revealed itself. The white chocolate is not a flavour we have vaped before but was very pleasant.

The familiar taste of a freshly baked cookie also lingered to round off this juice rather well. All of the flavours combined were reminiscent of a s’more. We’re not sure if this is what the blenders at Coil Spill had intended but we were impressed nonetheless.

Would I buy this product? For £19.99 a bottle, it’s a yes from the review team at Belfast Vape Bar. The flavours work very well with each other and isn’t too sweet as initially expected. Although, Bakers Daughter would not be an all day vape but more of an evening vape. We would like to thank the folks at Vintage Vape Rooms once again for sending us this product for review!

Carolina Cookie by Cloud Patrol

The folks at Vivd Vapes were kind enough to send out the Cloud Patrol products for the purpose of review. If you’re interested in the products reviewed below please head over to their website:

http://www.vivdvapes.co.uk/

Carolina Cookie is part of the line from Cloud Vapory makers of Cloud Batter, in collaboration with Pandora Blue.This line will be fully TPD compliant. The blenders describe Carolina Cookie as “Snickerdoodle cookie with vanilla Ice Cream” short and straight to the point!

cloud-patrol-carolina-cookie

The folks at Vivd Vapes are the UK distributor for this line and quite a few others, which we have had the pleasure of reviewing. Before we go through the motion of the taste-test, let’s take a little sniff from the bottle and see if anything is revealed. Carolina Cookie has a rather sweet, pastry-like aroma which we’re guessing is the snickerdoodle cookie with subtle notes of vanilla lingering in the background.

For this review, we are using the following hardware:

  • Tobeco Turbo RDA w/ dual claptons @ 0.27Ω
  • RDA wicked with Cotton Bacon V2
  • Asmodus Minikin V2 Mod

The Inhale – Having not actually tried a snickerdoodle cookie before, we took to the web to see what snacks were similar and according to a few different sources they’re quite similar to a sugar cookie. The inhale with Carolina Cookie has delivered on the sweet, almost butter-like cookie from the initial sniff and again the same subtle hint of vanilla.

The Exhale – Talk about three-for-three! The same flavours as with the first sniff from the bottle and with the inhale but on a much much grander scale! The sweet cookie paired with the vanilla ice cream makes Carolina Cookie are a very satisfying vape, paired with a choice coffee to complete the experience. Although not an all day vape as it can become rather overwhelming but nonetheless a tasty juice

Would I buy this product? It’s a yes from us at the Belfast Vape Bar! Snickerdoodle paired with vanilla ice cream in an RDA is definetly worth the purchase. Big shout out to the folks at Vivd Vapes again for allowing us the opportunity to review this product and they also offer wholesale, so vendors be sure to get in touch and try this out!

Steezcake by Dotmod

Dessert flavours are a staple within the world of vaping and there are endless varieties to choose from! Today we will be reviewing one of the newer products on the market.

This product was sent to us for the purpose of review by the folks at Republic of Vape and is available for purchase now in their store and on the website.

The blenders describe Steezcake as “A fresh baked artisan cheesecake swirled in layers of fresh ripe strawberries, graham cracker, and sweet cream.”

  • 70/30 VG High ratio
  • Available in 3mg Nicotine
  • 60ml Bottle w/glass dripper
steezcake

Let’s start by taking a look at the presentation of Steezcake. The bottle arrives encased in this delightful wedge-shaped box with the logo and a little window for the bottle to peep through. We were told that the wrong logo was used for this batch of Steezcake and that future packaging will feature a foil-styled logo.

For this review we are using the following hardware:

  • Lost Vape Therion DNA 75 mod
  • iJoy Tornado Nano RDTA w/ 0.3Ω stock coil
steezcake-bottle

Let’s start by taking a little sniff from the bottle. The dominant aroma is a rather sweet strawberry, not a fresh fruit but more of a syrupy strawberry.

The Inhale – The sweet syrupy strawberry is the foremost flavour with the inhale of Steezcake with very subtle biscuit undertones.

The Exhale – The inhale was rather underwhelming, let’s see if the exhale with this product lightens the mood… The strawberry drizzle/syrup has surfaced once again but is joined by a nice cream flavour which of course complement each other perfectly.

The graham cracker is ever so faint but is more noticeable with a retro-hale.

Would I buy Steezcake? I’m going to say yes but Steezcake would not be an all day vape for me. This juice pairs rather well with a coffee. The graham cracker could stand out more but the strawberry drizzle/syrup with the sweet cream make for a delicious vape.

Will Dotmod make any more juices? We will have to wait and see…

Pavlovin by Nom Nomz

Hi guys, welcome to another review from the Belfast Vape Bar. Today, we’re looking at ‘Pavlovin’ by Drip Art, a subsidiary of Nom Nomz Premium Vape Juice.

Their new line is comprised of two flavours, ‘Pavlovin and Slushizz’. Be sure to also check out our review on ‘Slushizz‘.

Nom Nomz describe Pavlovin as a “Soft and chewy meringue filled with cream, finished off with fresh strawberries and a strawberry sauce“.

E-Liquid details:

  • 60ml bottle
  • Currently only available in 3mg nicotine
  • VG70/PG30
  • Current retail price of £18.00

As you’re probably well aware, there’s a plethora of strawberry dessert flavours on the market. Especially during the early days of our growing industry, it would have been a popular ‘jump on the bandwagon’ type of flavour. Get it right and they can be a fan favourite, get it wrong and you’re left disappointed and out of pocket. I digress..

Hardware used in today’s review:

  • Mod – Wismec Reuleaux RX200s
  • Atomizer – Recoil RDA
  • Build – 0.35Ω dual fused clapton, running at 100W

Before I get into the taste test, I’ll take a quick whiff. Immediately I was greeted with the familiar scent of strawberry. In this case, it smells more like a synthetic strawberry. Almost like strawberry laces, or as the description suggests, strawberry sauce. Shortly after, I was welcomed with a soft, sweet, fresh creamy smell.

The Inhale – The initial part of my inhale was met with a very rich whipped cream and then a subtle hint of sweetness from the strawberry.

The Exhale – This is where the sweet strawberry starts to emerge. As I exhaled fully, I then tasted the sweet strawberry sauce, similar to what you would find in a pavlova dessert. As I closed my mouth, the sweetness of the strawberry can be tasted lingering on the tongue.

Would I buy this product? Absolutely, but not as an all-day vape. They’ve kept it simple and haven’t over-complicated the liquid with an excess of different flavour concentrates. However, if I was to change one thing, it would be the richness of the cream. In my opinion, Pavlovin would be perfect if the cream notes were slightly less rich. The cream flavour can become a little overpowering, so I would struggle to use this as an all-day vape. That being said, it’s still delicious.

Strawberry Cheesecake by Bon Appetit Vapours

Hello and welcome to another liquid review from the Belfast vape bar today I will be reviewing, Bon Appetit Vapours strawberry cheesecake

This liquid comes from a line that consists of six liquids which have been sent to us for review.

Strawberry Cheesecake:  Our Creamy Strawberry Dessert Flavour is mouth-watering, with a melt in your mouth feel you can fall in love with!”

This liquid has a VG/PG ratio of 60/40 and comes in 3,6,12 and 18mg nicotine. This is available in 15, 30 and 120ml bottles costing $10, $15.99 and $55 + postage at time of review from www.bonappetitvapours.com

For this review I am using the following:

Opening the bottle, I was hit with a very strong, dominant strawberry flavour with a slight back note of biscuit this smells very close to your traditional strawberry cheesecake and is making me rather eager to try this liquid out. As said in the review for Strawberry Banana Smoothie, the standard dropper bottle with the nicely laid out label, I am actually enjoying the design the more I look at it.

Looking forward to getting stuck into this delightfully smelling liquid.

The Inhale – on the inhale there is a very pungent candy strawberry taste that is very nice to see as most strawberry cheesecakes I have tried are usually heavy on the biscuit flavour.

The Exhale – on the exhale all I can say is “oh my” the sheer accuracy of the description is impressive the medley of biscuit and strawberry is a treat on the lips which I am pleased to say may well be one of my new all day vapes. The strawberry has just the perfect amount of sweetness to it, this liquid makes me want to go out and indulge in cheesecake until I can’t eat anymore! With this flavour the crew at Bon Appetit Vapours have out done themselves and I will look forward to more.

Once again being a 60/40 the vapour production isn’t great but the flavour with this liquid is perfect and ticks all the boxes for an all-day vape.

Would I buy this liquid again?

You’re damn right I would after being slightly disappointed with the Strawberry Banana flavour, they have won me back with this liquid and I will definitely be investing in a larger bottle for my first purchase.

Knucklehead by Vintage E-Liquids

Manufacturer’s Description: ”Awaken your senses with the finest wild cherry essence perfectly blended into velvety cream yogurt.”

Statistics: “The Knucklehead” by Vintage E-Liquids., Available in 0mg, 1.5mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg strengths, Available in 15ml bottles and 35ml bottles 20%PG/80%VG

Vaping statistics: 0mg strength, vaped on a Wismec RX2/3 with the Limitless RDTA+ equipped with single flat Clapton coil measuring at 0.25Ω and a Wismex RX2/3 with the Goon RDA w/ dual flat Clapton coils measuring at 0.35 Ω

Once again, as with my review of The Hellraiser by Vintage E-Liquids, I have to make two points clear; First, Vintage was the first line of liquid I ever tasted when I initially started vaping so I do have a positive bias towards Vintage’s e-liquids and Secondly I have to commend Vintage on the design of their e-liquid bottles. Especially the ability to maintain the novelty Zippo style design and implement child proofing in their design.

Popping the top off these liquids is a little cumbersome, to begin with, but soon becomes second nature. In order to open, you press against the cap above the hinge then raise the top, as instructions on the rear of the bottle inform. Once I had popped the top off the bottle, I was greeted with  bright fruity notes and an odd smoothness to the bottle note.

The first few drops of this liquid were phenomenal, I was greeted with the bright, fruity flavours. The delectable sweetness of the cherries beautifully woven with the sweet, creamy, smoothness of the yoghurt.  At lower wattages, the bright notes of the fruit shine through while at higher wattage, the entire flavour becomes  mellow, smooth, creamy and sweet, making it an absolute pleasure to enjoy.

Another major plus with this liquid is that it doesn’t become sickeningly sweet, especially when loaded into the Limitless RDTA+ and vaped over the course of a shift at work or while sat at the desk catching up on paperwork. The flavour delightfully lingers in the air with every cloud and the room note is simply a delight to walk into.

Overall,  this liquid is an absolute delight to vape on and I might suffer from the same issue I had with The Hellraiser. Should I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a fruity, creamy vape, I might not get the bottle back or at least be returned an empty bottle!

Limone Dolce by Vape Riches

Limone Dolce from the Italian meaning ‘Sweet Lemon’ is the first of the Vape Riches line to be reviewed here at the Belfast Vape Bar. The blenders describe this juice as “A layer of whipped cream on top of another layer that has been infused with Almalfi Coast Lemons. All on a thin Genoise cake base. Very light, citrus and creamy”

Sounds like a lemon meringue pie, a rather complex blends of flavour. Let’s see if it vapes as good as it sounds!

The Vape Riches line are available in 60ml bottles with 30ml unicorn bottle direct from their site and in 3mg nicotine strength.

limone-dulche-vape-riches

For this review we are using the following hardware:

  • Efusion DNA 200 mod
  • Mason Advocate 27mm RDA
  • Dual clapton build by East Side Custom Coils @ 0.15Ω
  • RDA wicked with Cotton Bacon

The Inhale – A rich sponge vake-like inhale with subtle notes of the lemon are present with the inhale of ‘Limone Dolce’. Being a 70/30 VG high mix, this juice is ideal for use in an RDA or with a subohm tank atomizer.

The Exhale – The lemon has a much higher presence than with the inhale. The mod has been cranked up to 145w to see if the biscuit base is as flavourful as the inhale… The cake-like notes are on par with the lemon. The two flavours blend rather well to make for what appears to make an almost dessert/after dinner vape. It’s a shame we only had 10ml of this juice to try out, a 60ml might be on the cards in the near future as this juice although an acquired taste does have a lot to offer.

Would I buy this product?

I’m going to say yes, ‘Limone Dolce’ is a very pleasant vape (not an all day vape). As we mentioned before, it’s a shame we only had 10ml to play with! This juice can be purchased via the link below.

Strawberry Custard by You Got E-Juice

It’s time for another juice review from the You Got E-Juice line. From this line, we have already reviewed Raspberry Candy and Vanilla Custard which both scored rather high by our reviewing team. Let’s see if ‘Strawberry Custard’ follows suit!

The Blenders describe Strawberry Custard as “We use two different vanillas and two different strawberries to make this delicious and it’s a personal staff favorite

The You Got E-Juice line is available in;

  • 60, 120 and 240ml bottles
  • 70/30 VG high ratio
  • 0, 3, and 6mg Nicotine strength

For this review, we are using the following hardware;

  • Efusion DNA200 Mod
  • Mason Gemini II RDA by Vapergate
  • RDA wicked with Cotton Bacon V2

Taking a little sniff from the bottle before we proceed with the taste, I was greeted with a rather sweet, strawberry aroma. Not so much like a fresh strawberry but more akin to strawberry laces or other strawberry-flavoured sweets… We have reviewed other products from their line and have consistently scored high marks on their description accuracy.

The Inhale – Having mixed some custard-type liquids, you become rather familiar with the individual ingredients that make up the majority of custard juices on the market. Strawberry Custard from You Got E-Juice doesn’t appear to be an exception. The buttery flavour presents itself front and centre, almost completely dominating the palate! The strawberry and vanilla notes are there – although just barely.

*Please note that we did allow this juice to steep for several weeks on recommendation from the mixologists*

The Exhale – The same buttery-like flavour remains with the exhale but the strawberry and vanilla notes have a slightly larger presence here than with the inhale. The custard concentrate seems to be lacking with this particular batch, which is rather disappointing as this flavour has the potential to be a solid all-day vape.

Would I buy this product? Based on this batch, I’m going to say no. The flavours just don’t seem to be blending well even after a substantial steep. The blenders said that this is one of their top selling products so this may be a case of a bad bottle…

Hellraiser by Vintage E-Liquids

Manufacturer’s Description: “Ablaze in fiery red, sweet ripened strawberries nestle on top of a sinfully delectable shortcake

Statistics: “The Hellraiser” by Vintage E-Liquids. Available in 0mg, 1.5mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg strengths. Available in 15ml bottles and 35ml bottles at 20%PG/80%VG

Vaping statistics: 0mg strength. Vaped on a Smok X-Cube Mini with the Petri V2 RDA equipped with dual coils measuring at 0.35Ω

Now, before I even commence this review, I have to make two points clear: first, Vintage was the first line of liquid I ever tasted when I initially started vaping so I do have a positive bias towards Vintage’s e-liquids and secondly, I have to commend Vintage on the design of their e-liquid bottles – especially the ability to maintain the novelty, Zippo-style design and implement child proofing in their design.

Popping the top off these liquids is a little cumbersome, to begin with, but soon becomes second nature. In order to open, you press against the cap above the hinge then raise the top – as instructions on the rear of the bottle detail. Once I had popped the top off the bottle, I was greeted with a warm – almost rustic – biscuit scent. There was a slight oat-ness to the scent before it greeted me with a juicy, almost tart, strawberry scent.  Giving the bottle a slight squeeze brings out a burst of the juicy, inviting strawberry aroma.  This particular flavour certainly sets itself up very well.

The first few drops were simply decadent.  Initially greeting me with a burst of fresh, almost tart strawberries, and a delightfully earthy, cookie base. Each puff was inviting and incredibly morish.  At lower wattages, the juiciness of the strawberries really shines through, while at higher wattages, the biscuit base of the cheesecake rises to prominence.  On the exhale, I was greeted with a delightful smoothness and the sweet flavour from the cream cheese of the cheesecake.

When sitting with this particular liquid for a while, the flavour continues to remain pleasant and fails to disappoint. The flavours hang in the vapour in the air perfectly. Not only are they extremely pleasant, but they are simply a delight to sample.  The clouds off this liquid are also impressive; thick, white, fluffy plumes of vapour thanks to the 20%PG/80%VG base.

Overall, this liquid certainly hasn’t disappointed and when it comes to recommending this, I can wholeheartedly suggest this to anyone seeking a fruity, biscuit liquid.
