Manufacturers Description: “Banana, strawberry, and a hint of red apple combine with some other slight fruit bases to bring you something that is fresh and very flavorful. It is finished with a smooth creamy base to really round out the experience. We have spent countless hours in the lab trying to come up with that next great ADV we can bring you. The successor to our very popular Placid if you will.”

Review: Cascade is a great fruity flavour, blended well to create a full and rounded flavour that tics many boxes. An odd mixture initially, which I suspect is caused by that most disreputable of fruit flavours, the banana, but one that grew on me quickly. I enjoy those reviews where I get to sit down with one of the Adirondack flavours that is quite unique, and they have a couple let me tell you. Many might be put off immediately on reading banana in the description above, but I urge you to forego such fruity prejudice and check this stuff out.
Immediately on the inhale you get the gorgeous triumvirate of banana, strawberry and candy apple. The 3 flavours are really obvious, there was no hoing and huming to try to figure out what they were in this one. Very clear notes, but blended in levels to be complimenting. Well if the inhale is good, the exhale is tony-the-tiger level GGRRREEATTT. The banana, strawberry and apple are still there, wrestling the other flavours for superiority, a luxuriant cream is the referee, catching the odd wild swing, but still surviving the tussle admirably. A light hint of what might be pear (or more precisely whatever ester is used to flavour pear drops), lurks about, stealing the combatants shoes and generally being a miscreant, but fitting in just fine.
I spent part of my Sunday, with the blinds open, a fresh glass of iced water at Port, and my e-cig with cascade to Starboard, basking in sunshine and listening to fresh Jurassic 5 beats, feeling just great with the current affairs. Cascade captured that vibe perfectly, fresh and fruity, not overbearing, and a bit of sweet cream to dust it off. Lovely.
