Fresh Review - The strawberry is very much forefront here. It’s a pretty decent strawberry flavoring that leans more toward the candy side of things. I’m getting blueberry, but again it ends up tasting kind of artificial to me. I just don’t think I’m a big fan of this particular blueberry flavoring, or perhaps my blueberry hunt has turned me into a bit of a blueberry snob, but this particular one just rubs my taste buds the wrong way. The custard here doesn’t really taste all that custardy to me. It’s not quite as bland as a pudding, but it doesn’t have the eggy flavor or richness that I’ve come to expect from a good custard flavor. I’d say this closer resembles a heavy cream, both in taste and sweetness level. I’m usually not a big fan of graham, but I’m not finding much of it here. Seems like my coil has to be pretty warm from chain vaping to find it and even then it is very light.
Ultimately this is mostly strawberry on the front with a heavy cream backing. The exhale is more cream with hints of strawberry and that blueberry flavoring that I’m not crazy about. The finish is a mix of strawberry and cream. Not bad, but probably not a reorder for me. We’ll see if time makes any difference.
Aged Review - This one actually changed quite a bit with time. It feels like the cream has really taken over this juice. The blueberry is kind of hard to find on an aged bottle, where it felt like it was a pretty big player on the exhale of a fresh bottle. This has become pretty close to what I expect out of a strawberries and cream juice, but the cream on this still feels like it’s missing something to give it that extra umph that you want in a flavor like this. It’s sweet, but it’s kind of milky and bland. I feel like this juice could benefit from some added vanilla to make it a bit less milky. Not a bad tasting juice, but it really misses the profile here in my opinion. This needs to be heavier to be a custard juice.
