“Hammer” by Boilermaker

Welcome to another review by Shinx. This time we are reviewing “Hammer” by Boilermaker coming to us the whole way from the state of Michigan, USA
Heres a little bit of info about Boilermaker themselves.

Here at Boilermaker Vapor, we cherish our American Heritage and the responsibilities that come with it, always remembering to “NEVER FORGET WHERE WE CAME FROM”

Quite a nice little spiel from Boilermaker there! I love it! Now, a huge thank you to Boilermaker for sending us their entire line in 30ml bottles. So far we have reviewed Vise, Chisel, Anvil and Rivet. This is one of the final liquids from their line we have to review!

On to the juice itself presentation is excellent! Old fashioned style label with Boilermaker’s fantastic logo on the front. Clearly states VG/PG ratio and Nic strength and in this case its a 50VG/50PG ratio and a 3mg strength.

On the rear of the bottle is a more clearer description of what Hammer is all about.

Powerfully built for making lasting impressions, the loudly accentuated, hard-hitting HAMMER is one you’ll never forget. Thundering in magnanimous layers of crisp vanilla, savoy butternut, and hazelnut toffee. This flavor-dominated, taste-bud pulverizer will blow you away! Sounds yummy! Lets crack ‘er open!!

Now this being a 50/50 based liquid I decided against a RDA and moved to one of my favourite tanks! The Smok TCT Pro!

Mod: Smok XCube II set in temp mode at 500 degrees Fahrenheit
Atomizer: Smok TCT Pro Ni200 Coil 0.15Ω

Juice smells very nice. Strong Vanilla with hints of a nutty toffee.

On the inhale I was greeted by a influx of an awesome vanilla with strong taste of nutty toffee! I wouldn’t call it sweet its more savoury.
Holding the vapour in the mouth for a few seconds the vanilla is more prominent in this juice. Its really very enjoyable.

Impressed so far! What’s the exhale like?

On the exhale the butternut rears its head and mixes beautifully with the vanilla and the sweet hazelnut toffee! An excellent juice for all you sweet sugary lovers out there! The butternut and hazelnuts mixes so well with the savoury vanilla then the toffee comes in to hold everything together with a mild sweetness. Not too strong or sickly.

What my final verdict on this juice then? Would i buy it when my review bottle is finished? Personally yes. While i do like this liquid i do not find it to be an all day vape because after a tank of it i found it to be too overpowering on the throat with it being a 50/50 juice. If this was a 70/30 juice I would gladly vape it all day!
This is the only complaint i have.

What’s the scores then?

Flavour: 8/10 can be quite sickly if you were to vape it all the time

Aroma: 9/10 Vanilla with hints of hazelnuts and toffee.

Design: 9/10 Great design! Love the retro thing Boilermaker have went for!

Cloud Production: 6/10 Being a 50/50 juice this is more for flavour so don’t expect anything ground breaking.

Trust in Shinx when I say this is a pretty good juice and if you have the chance to try it, do so!

“Joyride” by Conviction

Welcome to another liquid review by Foxy.

Today we will be having a look at another juice made by the fantastic Conviction!

Before I start this review I have to say that there is actually 2 of us doing the typing…… my soon to be wife has fostered a little ginger 5 week old kitten who is currently either running across my keyboard or crying to be cuddled lol. So if there is any random typos you can blame scruff lol.

This review is for “Joyride” which I cannot wait to open and inhale! As you know by my previous conviction review I instantly fell in love with “Peelout” and if the last review is anything to go by is it any wonder I can’t wait to vape this stuff.

For the purposes of this review I am using the IPV4 with the Turbo RDA and in addition to this I will be using the Innokin iSub-G tank on the iStick 30w whilst at work.

First let’s get into the dripping experience and then I will come back to this review after work when I’ve vaped all day using a tank.

On opening the bottle I am instantly greeted with the smell of my favourite chocolate spread…. I’ll give you a clue, it starts with nut and ends in tella. There is slightly more of a nutty smell than chocolate but only time will tell when I vape it.

On the inhale I get the perfect note of a really light white chocolate. Imagine if you could get white chocolate whipped until its nice and light like a fluffy whipped cream….. This is what I get! As I hold the vapour in I can get a mild hint of hazelnut which gets stronger by the second until I exhale to get something I didn’t expect to find with “Joyride”.

The exhale the white chocolate flavour has completely vanished and all that remains is a hint of hazelnut and a surprising fruit undertone which after closer inspection is actually blood orange. I never thought the day would have come where I would be vaping on blood orange but today it has and I can’t see why it hasn’t been used before.

I mentioned above that I would fill up a tank and take it to work for the day and see how this juice vapes as an all-day vape. Firstly I have to say that the coil I am using has been in use for about 5 tanks of juice prior to this but the flavour seems to be unaffected by this.

On the tank I would typically do mouth to lung hits rather than direct lung hits. This is for two reasons. Firstly, I cannot blow big clouds in the factory as no doubt I will be responsible for vaping being banned in the work place lol. Secondly, using a tank for mouth to lung hits gives me the best throat hit rather than direct inhales. The Conviction range are all 70/30 VG/PG so with the 30% PG it will illuminate the chances of a dry hit on my coil occurring. On the inhale there seems to be a more intense flavour hit whereby I get both white chocolate and hazelnut on the same breath but when held in for a period of time the flavour diminishes and reappears again on the exhale with that surprising blood orange flavour.

Presentation: 10/10

Cloud production: 8/10

Flavour: 10/10

So will I buy this juice once my review sample runs out? Yes indeed I would. The flavour combination may not be perfect for me but it will make a great vape none the less.

“Venus” by Space Jam

Welcome back to another E-Juice review by Foxy.

In this review we will be looking at “Venus” by Space Jam USA.

This is my first Space Jam liquid review that I have had the pleasure of tasting and I have to say that I am not disappointed at all.
I picked this juice up from Vape Hunter (www.vapehunter.co.uk) here in Belfast for just £10 for a 15ml bottle which all in all is a very competitive price for a USA liquid here in not so sunny Northern Ireland
The Space Jam brand is one of the big boys in the industry which in my own opinion are only towered over by one other US brand which use slightly more VG in their juice range.

For this review I will be using the Sigelei Elite 2 tank on the IPV4-S mod in temperature mode with a 0.15Ω Ni-200 coil set to 20J and 420 degrees. The reason I am using this juice in a tank is purely for the PG/VG ratio of 50/50 which would work better in a tank with a high temperature to replicate using a dripper.

The label on the bottle oozes Space Jam from top to bottom with their signature out of this world design, you can probably tell by now that Venus is named after the planet Venus in our solar system just like the rest of their lines they all have a story behind the name.

On opening the bottle I was greeted with a rather strong smell of peanuts…… Which in my opinion should have a warning symbol for persons suffering from a nut allergy.

On the inhale I am getting a perfect mixture of marshmallow that tastes like I have just roasted it over an open fire mixed with a subtle hint of peanut butter which really starts to make an impact the longer I hold it in.

On the exhale I get a delicious taste of caramel with maybe a hint of Nutmeg? After my vaping experience is over there is a lovely lingering aftertaste of the initial toasted marshmallow which tends to become more flavourful as the seconds pass.

Flavour: 9/10
Cloud production: 5/10
Presentation: 7/10

So would I buy this juice once my sample bottle is finished? Yes, Space Jam are one of the biggest and most trusted US juice manufacturers known within the industry and with that in mind they spend big bucks to provide us with a great vaping experience.

“Boss Reserve” by Cuttwood

Welcome back to another E-Juice review by Foxy.

In this review we will be having a vape on “Boss Reserve” by Cuttwood.

I’ve been itching to get my (not so little) mitts on some Boss’s Reserve for god knows how long and this week I have been blessed to actually get a whole bottle all to myself!

Boss Reserve is one of the flavours that really defines Cuttwood and is a perfect representation of the overall brand. Cuttwood do a multitude of flavours from savoury and sweet flavours to zesty fruit combinations that all hit the spot as an all-day vape or a perfect morning coffee vape which I personally prefer.

For this review I will be using the iStick 100W, the Troll RDA with a dual coil 0.26Ω build set to 70-90W.

On opening the bottle of Boss Reserve I am instantly hit with the most delicious and sweet smelling scent imaginable, it is somewhat reminiscent of hot sticky toffee sauce that could be got for dessert after a full roast meal.

The label really has to be one of my favourites reminding me of a famous Sour Mash from the United States too. If I’m honest this is what attracted me to Cuttwood in the first place.

On vaping the juice I get an instant intense hit of pure honey with a tiny hint of maybe brown sugar on the pallet. The honey flavouring really makes my teeth dance whilst I absorb every last drop through the lining of my lungs. On the exhale I am pleasantly surprised to get the exact same intensity of flavour from the back of my nose and again on the top of my tongue.

With such a pleasing result all round, I feel duty bound to try and find fault with this potion of pure pleasurable perfection! So I crank my wattage up to 90w and open my airflow right up as wide as I can get it. Strangely I am feeling a little excited for my next puff.

I take a great big hoof straight down to the tips of my toes and hold it there for a good 5 seconds before releasing and letting the vapour pour out my snout….. Yet again I am greeted with the exact same flavour as before! Can I find a fault with this juice at all?

The after taste is just utterly impossible to describe without adding some tinsel to this review. The dark honey flavour lingers for a good while and actually seems to get a slight oak smoked tint which I don’t think is actually the way the juice was designed to taste like? None the less it is absolute heaven in a bottle!

As far as an all-day vape goes, Boss Reserve really ticks all the boxes for me. I love dark and sweet flavours; flavours that linger after vaping and flavours that aren’t too acidic/artificial in taste.

Flavour: 10/10

Vapour Production: 8/10

Presentation: 10/10

Quality: 10/10

The only thing I have to mark this juice down on is the ratio for PG/VG. I wish it was 100% VG and it would have been a full house for Cuttwood without a second doubt!

Will I buy more once this bottle is done? A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y it’s bottled gold!

“Cpt. Crusty” by Boardwalk

Welcome back to another juice review by Foxy.

In this review we will be looking at “Cpt.Crusty” created by US Company Boardwalk.

Before I go any further I will say that the bottle is aesthetically pleasing. The label has a smooth “Satin” finish with high quality laser printing on all the samples received.

On opening the bottle I am instantly greeted with a light smell of banana and a perfect balance of a sweet yet delicate scent of honey?

For this review I will be using the Turbo RDA with a dual coil 0.28Ω build set to 70W on the IPV4 MK1.

On the inhale I am absolutely delighted to get a perfect taste of fresh honey with a hint of cinnamon…. I’m not a fan to say the least of cinnamon but in this juice it feels like Christmas came early during a hot summer’s day.
More often than not my all day vape would be a cereal type flavour as this enables me to get long and deep lung full without getting a sickening taste…. Cpt. Crusty also gives me my cereal dose for the day too lol.

Boardwalk liquids appear to be one of those secretly unheard of juices that could easily be mistaken to be the 8th wonder of the world. As you can tell by my previous reviews I am very hard to please when it comes to getting the perfect high quality e-juice for my all day vaping. It’s a shame that Boardwalk are such an unknown juice company here in Northern Ireland as I personally could easily switch from my usual manufacturer to Boardwalk within a heartbeat!

The mixture ratio is 70/30 VG/PG which is fairly typical of US juice brands but this isn’t something of an issue to me as I love high VG juices regardless of what hardware I am using.

Back onto the presentation of the liquid, as mentioned above the liquid bottle has a high quality satin effect label and it is crammed with information and warnings. I understand they this isn’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea but for me personally as a vaper and as a reviewer I find it to be the icing on the cake.

The bottle gives information on the content contained inside in both ML and FL OZ for American customers. You will also see on the side of the bottle a coded batch number for their own internal records rather than just random numbers on the bottles most manufacturers use. Again, I think this is strictly an American trend as most UK juices either have random numbers as a batch number or in all other cases no batch numbers/codes. This gives me a little more piece of mind as it means the juice you are vaping can be traced back to source with ease and also helps with any customer issues like lack of flavour or similar.

Flavour: 10/10
Vapour Production: 7/10
Presentation 10/10
Overall Quality: 10/10

So as you can see this juice scores what is in my opinion the highest marks I have given so far. It is a perfect juice for all day vaping if you like a sweet, spicy, smooth cereal vapes without being too overpowering. The 7/10 for clouds is down to the 70/30 mix and nothing more.

Would I buy this liquid again? Yes I sure would…. It is almost identical to another big US juice brand with an almost double price tag so for me personally it’s a goal!
