These are some of the good guys in the vape game. They are active in advocacy, yay!
Their flavors are well-crafted, and they don't slather on tons of sweetener into their mixes.
They included some nice goodies into my order (rubber grippy strips for atomizer disassembly), and also included a 12 ml sample bottle, fo' free.
They put up weekly sales for a few specific flavors on their facebook page. So check them out on social media before you buy.
I've only tried a few of their flavors (Apricot Custard & Very Vanilla Custard), but both were very nice. Shipping was prompt.
Will definitely shop here again.
Leaving my review for "Very Vanilla Custard" here, since there's no entry for it yet. (Moderators, please move this portion if the flavor page gets created or if this is inappropriate, thanks!)
I let my bottle steep for 6 months before trying it.
The beginning of the inhale is rather bland, tasting like a generic slightly smoky vapor. As the heat rises, the custard flavor definitely kicks in, and it becomes rather intense. I'm getting a lot of custard note, and it tastes almost caramelized or smoky/acrid at the end of the inhale, sort of how the sugar on a creme brulee is a bit bitter/smoky. Some vanilla is present during the inhale, but pretty light in the mix. This portion of the vape reminds me a lot of having a cigarette after a meal where it sort of 'sears in' your tastebuds.
The exhale is smooth aftertaste of custard note with that nice vanilla becoming more prominent, and there's also some slight creaminess that comes into play. The vanilla flavor is definitely more present in the exhale, and I think that's what makes it so smooth.
The custard that's present throughout this vape is not eggy or oily -- it's somewhat dry tasting, slightly acrid, but in a pleasant way.
I don't get much mouthfeel or creamy texture with this liquid, and what's there only shows up at the exhale, which is a shame. If it were a bit more rich/creamy, this would be a perfect 5 & definite ADV for me.
All in all, this is miles better than most commercial custards. It's not eggy, or oily, or laden with that fake vanilla taste that many VC's tend to use. They didn't dump in gobs of sweetener & call it a day. It's got a lot of nuance and subtlety to it. I can tell they spent a lot of time developing and balancing this flavor. I respect that a lot, even if it's not totally my jam.
I mostly vape at mid-wattage. I turned up the heat/air somewhat on my RTA and the flavoring definitely got more intense, and the character of the vape changed substantially. (Still not creamy enough for me, though.) So be sure to experiment with this liquid and see how you like it.
I'm going to try this out in some more devices, especially ones where I can crank up the heat a little bit more. While this isn't the perfect liquid for me, I can say that it's very cohesive and nothing feels weird or out of place. They did a really good job with it.
I will definitely finish the bottle, and would even probably re-order this one, just on account of all of the interplay between the flavors.
