Today, I’m excited to be bringing you a review of a new e-liquid that has been released as part of a line by Cloud Corp Vaping – hailing from our very own Northern Ireland. I always enjoy trying out bespoke e-liquids that are made locally. There’s nothing more frustrating than finding a gem of a flavour that isn’t even available to purchase in the UK yet, so when I saw where Cloud Corp Vaping were based I had to jump on one of their liquids to review.
At the time of writing, Cloud Corp Vaping haven’t yet launched a website or online store, but do check out their Facebook page to keep an eye on the offers that they have ongoing in their Coleraine premises. I will update this review as and when they do launch an online shop as – trust me – you will want to be buying their products online if you aren’t able to visit them in person.
So the product that I’m reviewing today is The Red Keep – part of the Seven Kingdoms line of e-liquids. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you’ll know that this line is modelled on the kingdoms that the GoT realm is composed of. Even if you aren’t a fan of the series, you’re probably aware of how proud Northern Ireland is of hosting much of the filming for the series. It makes sense, then, to give that sense of familiarity to a line of products that are also proudly handcrafted in Northern Ireland. However, I’m sure that Cloud Corp were also aware that in doing so, the highest standard would be expected of these flavours.
I’ve been trying The Red Keep out at a strength of 3mg and a VG/PG ratio of 60:40. The packaging of the e-liquid is both functional and fits well with their theme. Information regarding the ingredients, strength, batch number, volume, date of production and ratio are all clearly displayed.
The actual flavour of The Red Keep is rather fascinating. Matching the pale red colour of the liquid is a sweet, berry flavour on the exhale. However, on the inhale, there is an almost menthol-like freshness that is most refreshing. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it lies somewhere in the region of aniseed and red liquorice – not unlike a berry-flavoured throat lozenge, but without any of the bitterness. Because of this freshness, it’s a liquid that just doesn’t become sickening.
I’m sure that the above picture is an indication of how much I’ve been enjoying The Red Keep – to say that I’ve been looking sadly at the ever-dwindling amount of liquid left in the bottle would be an understatement. This is absolutely an all day vape for me and I wouldn’t hesitate to say that it is now one of my favourites.
It could have been a disastrous move for an emerging brand to christen a line with this theme. However, if the rest of the Seven Kingdoms is anything like The Red Keep, then Cloud Corp Vaping have pulled it off wonderfully. The flavour is excellent, the packaging is sleek and the company itself has integrity. Cloud Corp Vaping is a brand that our province’s vapers can be most proud of.
The official website for Cloud Corp is now live and this juice is available or online purchase!
