This is by far my favorite juice I've tried so far - out of about 8 different brands and many flavors. The banana, butterscotch and caramel are exquisite on the inhale and The Red Ape has by far the best Bavarian creamy exhale in a juice I've ever tried. This juice was irresistible to me and a definite ADV. Rich, smooth and full of flavor, Darkest Day really killed it with this juice.
I really enjoyed the juices from Crystal Canyon Vapes. I ordered Calypso, Southern Chill and Ectocooler all 50/50 blend with 12mg Nicotine. I'd put them at a level above Mt Baker Vapor, in terms of flavor and taste, not to mention potential all-day vapability. Calypso is a deliciously refreshing blend of tropical fruits that makes me drool far too frequently. Southern Chill was another amazing flavor, it has a great lemonade taste, with a hint of strawberry and a refreshing cooling sensation on the exhale that isn't menthol. I've only tried my childhood favorite Ectocooler once and it was one of the better ones I've tried so far. I decided to let it steep due to past experiences with dissapointing Ectocooler renditions. Shipping took a while to get out to Asia (2 weeks), but I also chose the slowest option. I really enjoyed the flavors I tried and will be ordering from Crystal Canyon again in the future.
For my second try at E Juices, I recently ordered a few flavours from Virgin Vapor and was very impressed. The real flavours were pretty damn good. One thing I really liked was the incredible vapor clouds produced from these juices. I must say though, and maybe it's just me, that due to its juices containing real organic fruit, my mouth can at times feel like I've been eating a large jar of jam so perhaps some flavours aren't ideal for an ADV. I ordered the Organic Black Cherry Marshmallow, Organic White Cherry Crush and Strawberry Lime Cooler each with 50/50 PG/VG and 12mg of nicotine. It took a little over a week to arrive in Asia. At first, my favourite was the Black Cherry Marshmallow, the authentic cherry flavour was great and had a creamy marshmallow taste on the exhale. The only steeping done to it was in the week it took to get out here, and I tried it immediately upon arrival. However, after a while it began tasting like cough syrup and the marshmallow kind of disappeared. I also didn't particularly like the floral accent in it (apparently from the alcohol) and I think I've come to the realisation I prefer candy cherry flavour to the authentic one. This was when I fell in love with the Strawberry Lime Cooler, which, after a week of steeping, was incredibly refreshing and tasty. This flavour is my ADV right now and is just amazing. The Organic White Cherry Crush was pretty awful when I first tried it and I admittedly haven't gone back to it in a few weeks. Perhaps I'll try it again in a bit. I will definitely try Virgin Vapors again, especially the Strawberry Lime Cooler and some of their other flavours like Kona Milkshake.
Mt Baker Vapor was my first experience with E Juices and it was decent. I absolutely agree with everyone that the customer service and shipping times were top notch - I live in Asia and received my package in 3 business days. However, like many have said here, the flavours I ordered were very much hit-or-miss. Out of the 8 I ordered, each with two extra flavour shots and a 50/50 PG/VG blend with 12mg Nicotine, my two favourites were Freckled Lemonade and the Raspberry Lemonade. Both lemonades had a nice, full sweet lemon flavour with hints of strawberry and raspberry respectively. The Cinnamon Bun was pretty good. The other flavours I ordered were terrible. This is purely my opinion and taste but I really couldn't stand Hawk Sauce and Thug Juice's mixture of fruit and menthol, the menthol just left a terrible after taste in my mouth and back of throat and it took forever to get the menthol out of my tank afterwards. The Orange Creamsicle flavour was very mild with barely any taste, especially lacking in cream. Ectocooler was the same mild taste, but with a strange burning sensation from the citrus. The Blood Orange flavour was also very weak and left a burning sensation in my throat. Great customer service, good value for your money, but in the future I think I'll stick with the higher-end options.
