This is my first Juice DB review, hopefully it goes well!
So I wanted to try Punch because I'm down with Punch and have yet, like others, to find one that I found really satisfying. Sadly this wasn't it, but it isn't a bad juice by any means at all! I vape a lot of different flavors but I shade heavily into fruit and menthol, typically avoid custards/bakery/tobaccos but I don't hate them, simply a matter of preference.
First thing, presentation is nice! The cardboard packaging is eye-catching, though vaguely reminds me of the cologne you can buy at the drug store, still I was initially impressed. It is segmented internally with a 30 ml bottle (mine in 3 nic) and a smaller compartment houses a little paper drink umbrella, which I thought was a cool little touch. The bottle itself was shrinkwrapped and did not leak.
Aroma was initially very pleasant, definitely close to the red punch I was looking for. No single fruit is dominant, though I get mango, passionfruit, pineapple, and guava pretty equally. These are not astringent nor harsh, though nor are they particularly lifelike (and that's okay! not what I was looking for anyway so no slight there). I've had fruits from other companies that offer something closer to fresh fruit usually with a mouth full of ethanol, so its a worthy trade-off for me, for this flavor profile, to be able to vape it straight from the bottle and not suffer the patience testing two-week steep.
I used a fresh wick for this juice, break in period was quick but like the other reviewer, my initially first handful of hits were all pretty harsh on the throat, I thought I made a mistake and accidentally ordered a 50/50 juice but also like the reviewer it quickly smoothed out and no issues past the first five at most. The taste is very close to the aroma, gives me an excellent comp for a punch -- aside from the exhale which I find cloyingly sweet and is the primary reason I docked points. I didn't smell it much in the aroma - and the fruit profile is well-balanced and tasty -- but personally waaaaaaay too sweet for my liking. I'll be examining my coils after I run through this tank to confirm, but I think this suffers from the "Premium" habit of way too much sweetener (for my personal taste that is, your mileage may vary of course). It also has almost reminiscent of a vanilla on the exhale which isn't unpleasant at all but in combination with the sweetener it can be a little much. Those that like sweet fruity vapes will absolutely enjoy this, however. Personally I can't look past it, which is a shame because otherwise its a quite tasty and well-balanced juice in my opinion.
Juice was vaped on a 22 mm Griffin RTA with dual fused kanthal claptons at ~.21 ohms and 75-95 watts, rewicked both coils fresh for the review. I didn't notice much improvement by moving temps up and down, but I don't think even running it in TC would help the sweetness if its as big an issue for others as it is me. I hope this was helpful!
