I let this bottle sit (in the dark) for about 6 months before trying it. I'm kicking myself for waiting so long, because this stuff is fantastic.
The apricot tastes great, it's super realistic and fresh. You get the bright fruity tartness that zings across your palate, it almost tastes pulpy somehow. Wow! It's backed by a thick, creamy custard. The custard isn't eggy or 'greasy', it's not super sweet and is just perfect with all that fresh apricot. There is a big twangy tart finish with this juice, it's pleasant and quite intense.
I am a sucker for juices that taste like their description. These guys nailed it, there is absolutely no mistaking that this is an apricot custard. Furthermore, the flavors are super realistic. I could immediately tell that they spent a lot of time developing this recipe. Both flavors are well-balanced and compliment each other nicely.
I couldn't do this as an ADV, because it's a little fatiguing after a few tankfuls. This is mainly because the tart finish is a little intense for me. That being said, I wanted more the next day & ended up filling another tankful. It immediately found a place in my rotation. I think if I added a hair of sweetener to this juice, it would be absolutely perfect. (I realize this is akin to putting ketchup on a steak. Sorry.)
While I haven't spent a huge amount of time using this, I'm imagining that it won't be a coil destroyer, as it's not super-sweet like most commercial juices these days. That being said, the flavor is quite present, & you are definitely getting what you pay for in terms of the flavor.
I'd rate the flavor strength at 9/10 intensity.
I am a super picky vaper, and end up shelving or trashing 90% of the bottles I purchase. I am really happy with this custard & would definitely buy it again. If this flavor profile sounds interesting to you, don't hesitate on giving it a shot.
