Review of Billions E-liquid by Humble Juice

Description

This is an all-American baked apple pie flavor.

Ratio

80Vg /20PG

Ingredients

Natural & Art Flavoring, USP Propylene Glycol, USP Vegetable Glycerine, and USP NicSelect Nicotine

Pre-steeped

After receiving the bottle, I didn’t use it immediately because the scent was still a tad bit strong for me. Although it was stated on the label that it has been pre-steeped for two weeks or longer, I still felt it needed a week more on stand-by. So I did, and the result suits me better.

Manufacturing Company

Billions e-liquid is created by a California-based American company named Humble Juice. Billions is one of the flavors of the Havoc collection produced by Humble Juice Co. They are known as one of the fastest growing juice companies in the vaping industry. They have the passion for creating high-quality juices for the vaping community. Their prices do not disappoint either as they offer inexpensive yet quality e-juices.  Based on their website, they do not charge any shipping fees for orders above $19.99. That is such a good deal since most are priced higher than that! The website’s look is very neat, simple and easy to navigate through. As a cherry on top, they have excellent service and after-sales support.

Price

Billions is priced at $33.99 per bottle. True enough, Humble Juice Co gives high importance to value for money. I couldn’t believe the price for an e-liquid this good.

Packaging and Design

Based on their website, this comes in one size only. It’s available in 180 ml. The Havoc collection is the biggest in size among all three of Humble’s lines. They have the super-sized bottling for these flavors. I don’t mind buying the larger quantity since the flavor justifies it. However, I wish it comes with a smaller bottle so I can bring it on-the-go and not worry about it being bulky. It is packed in a clear plastic bottle with a sticker label. It has a glue top cover for easier refilling. The label has the Havoc logo and flavor name printed on it. The look is very simple and clean except for the pop of colors on the label. It looks plain and basic but still striking.

Flavor and Taste

When it comes to e-liquid flavors, I’m the one who has a weakness for anything pie or pastry flavor. I think those flavor profiles are the best vape juice for me. Humble has done well with Billions since the apple pie flavor is on point. It hits the bullseye! There is a perfect balance between the apple and cinnamon ratio. It is not too sweet or too tarty. Plus, you can taste a bit of crunchy baked pastry making the apple pie flavor more real. You can still taste the apple vividly and how it’s complemented by the cinnamon and crunchy pie undertones. The flavor is delicious with every inhale and exhale. I enjoy that cinnamon kick towards the tail end as you exhale. Overall, the taste is vibrant and rich. I am surely keeping this in my rotation for a long time.

Throat Hit

At 80 VG, I am sure that the TH will go well with the nicotine content. Billion is available in three variants; 0 mg, 3 mg, and 6 mg. I usually go for 3 mg and power it up around 50-70W depending on the builds I’m using. I used this on my TFV8, and the TH is very smooth. I like how it does not give me any burnt or dry hits.

Vapor Production

The scent of this e-liquid is concentrated more on the apple notes. I like that it has the fruity scent but with a toasted pie undertone. As mentioned earlier, this is a high VG mix so decent cloud production is in order. It did not let me down since I got huge dense clouds that stayed afloat and lingered. I usually fire it up at 60 watts with the airflows half open to sustain the flavor while having max clouds.  It has that cooling effect as well. In all honesty, Billions is a perfect ADV for me.

Slammin Taffy e-Liquid Review

Are you a big fan of berry e-liquid flavors? Are you a cloud chaser? Do you have a thing for mild throat hits? If that’s the case, I suggest trying out this e-liquid I’ve recently bought online. With its reasonable price and cute packaging, you will surely find yourself addicted to Slammin Taffy e-liquid and to the whole Slammin Series as well. This has been in my rotation for weeks now. It is something I would not think twice of recommending to anyone.

Description

Stop running to the candy store and start running towards these flavor clouds. Slammin’ Taffy brings you a delicious strawberry flavor infused into saltwater taffy.

Ratio

70 VG/30 PG ratio – Yes, expect a decent cloud production.

Manufacturer

The Slammin series is produced by a California-based company named Hardtime e-Liquid. They have a distinctive mission to create good tasting premium e-liquids as a way of saving lives. They believe that if an e-juice doesn’t taste appealing at first try, it is possible he or she may give up on vaping at that moment. That way, Hardtime could potentially save a life. Their Slammin series has the most tasteful flavors I’ve tried. The line tastes very natural and no trace of any artificial tones in it.

Price

The 60 ml bottle retails at $29.99. I bought my bottle online at ecig.com. The price range is not too much for a premium e-liquid that tastes this good!

Packaging

It comes in a 60 ml clear bottle with an undeniably cute sticker on it. I love how the layout uses pink and pops of baby blue hues while combining it with neutrals such as the gray and white colors. The design has the sketch of strawberries and taffy candies on it. On the lower right portion of the sticker, you can also find the nicotine level label. This flavor from the Slammin series is available in 0, 3, and 6 mg of nicotine strength. I would suggest getting the 6 mg for a balance between throat hit and flavor.

Flavor

I will be very honest, this vape e-liquid has got to be the most satisfactory I’ve ever tried. Let me tell you about myself so you would understand. I am a sucker for cheap thrills and functional items. I would say at 60ml the price for Slammin Taffy is borderline steep but it delivers. I love fruity flavors especially those sweet melony and tangy berry palates. Slammin Taffy has all of these on point. It has a reasonable price with the best-tasting flavor. I love that the manufacturer uses a good kind of sweetener.  The flavor is not dull at all. On the inhale, it gives out a very natural strawberry tang. While on the exhale, you can savor the saltwater taffy. Slammin Taffy is very straightforward to its flavor description above; you get exactly what is advertised. This totally reminds me of my favorite childhood candy.  The Slammin series have four flavors and this is my top choice. All four of them are flawless juices.

Vapor

At 70 VG / 30 PG ratio, the flavor was not sacrificed at all. Upon opening the bottle, you can smell the natural essence of a sweet and salty pair. The smell of the famous taffy candies was mimicked. It is not dull as well. Usually, for high VG liquids, it is harder to get the taste and throat hit but for the Slammin series, it was achieved excellently. Of course, with the right paraphernalia used, you can still get the flavor you aim for while producing the right kind of vapor. For cloud chasers, this is a good mix. I fired this using my RDTA with the airflows half-open. The result was astonishing! I can still taste the saltwater taffy and the hint of strawberry. It still delivers the right kind of throat hit; strong but not too intense. Plus, you can still get to enjoy the aroma of the flavor on the thick clouds it produces.

You will never go wrong with the Slammin Series of Hardtime e-liquid company. I suggest buying the Slammin Taffy and the Slammin Milkshake from ecig.com. This site has great taste, great price, and great service!

Sex on the Peach E-Liquid Review

12 May 2017 E-liquid

After tasting Berry Blast Premium E-Juice,  Sex on the Peach e-liquid, I was eager to get to work on the next bottle I had ordered from 180 Smoke Vape Shop. Described as a refreshing cocktail with delicious peaches with a hint of mint, I thought the flavor sounded like a good mix, and that’s exactly how it played out.

Festiva by Cloud Alchemist Review

10 May 2017 E-liquid

For me, Cloud Alchemist e-juice is the best e-liquid choice out there. Whether it is their Arrakis flavor or Festiva flavor they all have a sophisticated overtone. Their recipes are delicate, complex and excite the taste buds with their intricate flavors. There is a huge fan base for Cloud Alchemist’s E-juices because their flavors are of a different category than other contemporary brands.

Price: $19.99 for 30 ml
* Size:10ml 30ml 120ml

* Nicotine Level:00mg 1.5mg 03mg 06mg 12mg

* PG/VG Ratio:20pg/80vg 50pg/50vg

Flavor note: Warm beignets topped with fresh strawberries and dolloped with vanilla-almond whipped cream.

Review of Festiva

Flavor:

The primary components in Festiva seem to be a mellow, fruity, subdued fresh strawberry flavor. It’s sweet, but not overly sweet. This juice is joined by a creamy coconut that also possesses its own sweetness, and a rich, mildly creamy vanilla. While these three players seem to dominate the profile, and they are all quite tasty on their own. There is a wide array of other, more subtle, complimentary flavors going on here.

Inhale and Exhale:

The inhale is sweet, creamy and has almond. Between inhale and exhale, the flavors blend beautifully and no one flavor dominates. On the exhale, It tastes like whipped cream, with a hint of strawberry flavor and a touch of a bakery note. The finish also has a flavor that seems familiar and makes me believe there is a very small amount of tangerine in the mix. When brought together with the creamy vanilla flavor, it will sometimes leave the finish with a note similar to that of a Creamsicle. To further complicate things, I’m also getting a bit of buttery note but from there on out, I might as well be throwing darts at a dartboard with every non-tobacco flavor printed on it.

Nailing down any one of the other flavors in Festiva is like playing a game of hide-and-seek. As soon as you taste one thing, it’s gone a moment later, and trying to find it again on the next vape is akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. One moment I taste a mild fresh strawberry-like fruitiness, and the moment after that, I think it could be vanilla cream. In addition to being such a complex, multi-noted, impossibly layered composition, Festiva is also incredibly smooth, remarkably tight-knit, and exquisitely balanced dessert cake flavored e-liquid.

It’s not often that a juice passes through my hands and leaves me with shoulders shrugged and a little more information than when I started, and I know that’s not why you come here, but to be honest, nothing gives me greater joy than being completely and utterly stumped by an expertly crafted, masterfully blended symphony of flavors, and this juice is just that.

Throat hit and Cloud making:

As I said, I ran Festiva through all of my various set-ups including some I rarely ever use. While the flavor changes at least a little, and sometimes quite bit from rig to rig, I liked it best in a sub-Ω coiled Nimbus atop my Nemesis, my set-up of choice. This particular Nimbus has its intakes drilled to 1/16″, was built with a dual twisted 28ga Kanthal coil at .6Ω on XC-116 wick. While this is how I like Cloud Alchemist premium ejuice, the constant flavor discrepancies mean that, as the old vaping adage goes, your mileage may vary. Whether you use a standard Kanger variable voltage Mod or dripper, a genesis style atty, carto or clearo, any way you dial in. This stuff can handle most any sort of heat you throw at it.

Finally, It is a great experience for many vapers, even those who have tried it for the first time. It carries a nice and engaging strawberry smell and tastes like sweet and vanilla-almond whipped cream. Wow! This juice is really amazing! I would say that if it is your first time tasting this ejuice, you’ll definitely order it again.

It can be concluded that Cloud Alchemists E Juice line adds new freshness in a collection of e-juices. The line has everything for everyone. So, go for your favorite flavors from the line of Cloud Alchemist and enjoy your vaping at its best.

Poseidon by Cyclops Vapor Review

3 May 2017 E-liquid

About Cyclops Vapor:

Poseidon: Poseidon was the ‘God of the Liquids’ and protector of anything aquatic.

Poseidon, by Cyclops Vapor, is a complex blend that encapsulates the enigma of the sea.

Ingredients and Packaging:

Melons are at their best during the summer, and on a hot day, nothing cools like a fruity melon. Since the flesh of the fruit is mostly water, it is thirst quenching as well. Good snacks range from the standard fare prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe to scooping out watermelon and drizzling them with flavored syrups. Even desserts can get a pick-me-up from the addition of melon. The ingredients in this 35ml bottle are just pharmaceutical grade propylene glycol and pharmaceutical grade nicotine. The liquid is made in the USA to a high standard, contains only the purest ingredients and is bottled in a sterile environment. The Cyclops Vapor healthy PG/VG option and nicotine levels is a prominent feature of the raspberry custard e-juice.

Review:

Poseidon fruit melon is a flavor I hold near and dear to my heart. While I always enjoyed my fruity flavored e-liquids, notably peach and melon blends, it wasn’t until I discovered the first fruity melon style juice, over a year after I began vaping, that I was certain I would never crave another cigarette again.

It was my first ADV, and a flavor combination I still mix for myself to this day. When well made, its perfect blend of sweet, light and fruity with a fresh, brisk finish. When done poorly it’s still not even that bad, but with flavors so clean, it’s usually pretty easy to separate out the merely good from the great. In most cases, it comes down to a matter of balance.

If the two main components, fruit and melon are in a state of equilibrium, as far as the final profile, the result will often seem off. Fruit Melon still has some redeeming qualities, namely the juxtaposition of the sweet, juicy watermelon up against the chilly kool-ade, but with a skewed flavor ratio, it’s nowhere near what it could, and in my opinion, should be. As with any juice that contains a new component, total wattage has drastic effects on flavor.

So while the chilly notes are more pronounced towards the upper end of the vaping/wattage spectrum, even at more conservative wattage, dialing in the sweet spot that delivers these two flavors in a state of equilibrium is simply not possible.

The fruity combination tends to smother the more delicate, familiar juicy watermelon flavor. It’s a good fruit on its own. It’s the same flavor I used for a long time in my version of this juice, but it’s difficult for the watermelon to overcome the bold, vaguely medicinal taste of the menthol.

I vaped this juice all over the vaping wattage spectrum, with several different rigs, but the most balanced flavor I was able to achieve came from the ProVari/510 atty rig at a relatively brisk 8.1 watts or 4.5v on a 2.5 Bridgeless dripper.

Admittedly, that wattage doesn’t do this juice any favors when it comes to vapor production, but that’s where this liquid attains its greatest sense of flavor parity, even if it still falls a bit short of the mark.

When I put more heat through the juice, both on my Nemesis/Nimbus rig and my Duke/Atomic set-up, the result was the same, an excellent Melon profile with just a light hint of the sweet, juicy fruit. Again, this juice is still miles away from being bad, but it simply isn’t on par with other vendors takes on the classic profile of sweet melon vapes.

Overall Assessment:

This stuff is amazing! I have tried a lot of e-juices (gourmet flavors included) from many favorite vendors, and this is in my top 3. The taste never fails to surprise. Easily an ADV for me and I love it! A big thank you to me review it! If you’re still on the fence about Poseidon, buy it now! I don’t know what the crafty craftsmen here at Cyclops are doing, but they’re doing it right! Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about this vape liquid. Try it; you will not regret it.

Pros:

Robust options for nicotine level
Child-proof cap
Full range of PG/VG ratio

Cons:

Use of plastic bottles

What is e-liquid?

9 Jan 2014 E-liquid

 

E-liquid is mainly a mix of 3 to 4 ingredients: propylene glycol(PG), vegetable glycerine(VG), flavouring, and nicotine(or none at all).

Propylene glycol: adds to the throat hit, which is the sensation you feel in the back of the throat after inhaling.
