I kept imagining little German style coffee wafers being dunked into my coffee and me, greedily eating them. I was glad for the sweetness. I concur with the community’s verdict on CWC and would simply like to add my support.
All riiight! Finally something that doesn’t make me hate the company following two previous bad experiences. Redemption is here!
See my specific flavors called out below. I really liked this stuff! Just have to keep it out of my mainly tobacco tanks.
Quite refreshing! Arnold Palmers, all around!
Not worth buying, and my second big disappointment from The Sauce LA. At least with this juice I withstood 3/4 of the tank before dumping the rest. Not disgusting like the coconut concoction, but out of balance like a tire with its lugnuts about to fly off. It sounded very pleasant but didn’t make it around the bases. Very lopsided and confusing. Woe is me. I’m a sucker for falling for an evocatively named juice like “Open Road” and I paid the price.
Oh my G*d. No.
As a beverage, MAYBE this would be ok, as on the sniffer it was like Mio liquid or a strong coconut water. And I’ve drunk my share of that out here in the PAC. The description sounded phenomenal. The end result tastes like those bottom of the barrel trick-or-treat candies that seem like they were contaminated with Chinese plasti-rubber and raw carcinogens.
Something seriously needs to be reworked in this recipe. I thought everything from The Sauce LA was supposed to be wonderful. Couldn’t finish my tank. Gag.
A moustache tickler. Soft and pleasing, maybe 70/30 Apple to custard. The Apple is slightly tart; the custard is sweet and mellow.
Apple Custard by Juice Guys is my maiden voyage with the company and I sampled it on two devices at 30W and 50W. I specifically sought out this flavor profile from the selections at eLiquid. After going in blindly, there seem to be a fair amount of apple-custards on the market, which I am thankful for, and this is an acceptable juice, especially being the most reasonable price I found at the time of purchase.
Nothing really stood out, but with two softer flavors involved I felt like the total package may all come in under the radar. I.e., I wanted something maybe more memorable, but there are limitations to what can be done with juice. I was hoping for a bit more vanilla and egg, like a custard-apple vice an apple-custard, but not a big deal. Therefore, I’m calling it “custardy” and not flat out custard. Hm. Still looking to broaden my experiences with this profile.
No issues nonetheless and Apple Custard by Juice Guys was uncomplicated and fine. A tad bit too light.
Will likely reorder.
I'm on the verge of finishing a 120 mL bottle of Ripe Vapes' VCT and saw it prominently featured in an ad on eLiquid, making me feel "in the know". Like, “Cool, I have food taste, can’t you see?!”
To be candid, I bought it in a pinch while travelling without so much as a sample. By the JuiceDB score guidelines, it's worth ordering, but also above average with some faults. It's a reliable vape-of-the-line. It's comfortable and gets the job done. I'm not quite sure if it's reached "old friend" status with me, or capable of that, but I will miss it when it's gone. So that's my impression.
The flavors inherent are well-conceived; I also did steep this juice. I am quite sure there are many fans with more favorable views. It's something you want in your juice crate, it's a first-string.
I noticed this business hadn’t been reviewed before and one of its partners/lines had a whole slew of decent sounding juices. Raspberry Tea itself was recommended to me by a vape shop in Guam and on sale. The storekeeps really seemed to be fans. Overall it’s very light-bodied, flavor is where it should be, and nice clean finish. I think people considering buying it need to decide for themselves if they’re fans of raspberry tea and uncomplicated flavors and go from there. Myself, I’m not so keen on “candy jam-monstuhrr” electricifying flavors aimed at certain vape bros, I just like quality and simplicity. Therefore, this was a win. Its Achilles’ Heel may be its wateriness. Nonetheless, nice flavor.

Not terribly memorable to me, but needs more reviewing from other people.
I had a little apprehension going in as I thought this was going to end up a chocolate milk flavor and luckily it was not. My first impression is that it’s mild. I struggled to find the right wattage to enjoy it, or whether it needed to be steeped. It’s definitely mellow, with a hint of honey. All in all, I’m quite neutral on this one and will end up mixing it with the remainder of something else. Maybe I should have gone with higher VG? Keystone has some other juices that are quite superior, though.

Nice and smooth with a gentle, creamy curl at the end.
It does have the shaved ice flavor, just to get that out of the way. As someone who mostly goes in cold, I must have glossed over the watermelon in the write ups because it was unexpected but not unpleasant. And that’s the thing: this is a watermelon vape. Pretty delicious. Or for those of us modernists who like to call beverages by color vice flavor, e.g. asking for some purple, red, or blue “drank” and not fruit punch or grape, this is definitely a “red” as “blood” would suggest.
Another selection that would go great with a bit of ice. The finish is completely different, I’d almost describe it as chewy, soft, or springy. Worth ordering a sample.
|Flavor Accuracy||5 /5|
Rich and smooth, and really without any issues. Following the ad copy, yes, there’s caramel and yes, its full of pipe tobacco depth.
When I made my last order from Vapor Chef, I was seeking a RY4 caramel anything, having been without for months. This fit the bill for caramel. Flavor accuracy as described would be a 5.
If you’re looking for tobaccos, I highly recommend VC’s Slartibartfast. Watson is nice, though. (And great choice of name.)
“He ain’t heavy, he’s my little brudder.”
Tastes nice, but could take flight after a little re-mixing with mint. Otherwise, it’s a great base.
However in that case, you would have Vapor Chef’s/Keystone Vapor’s Neshaminy Creek, which is a high ‘4’ around here.
It’s as if Pear Brandy is hanging from N.C.’s bicep saying, “I wanna grow up big like you!”
The brandy is faint. This juice is good, but needs more punch. I will be mixing it with menthol. I’m not a mint guy, and maybe it’s just the heat around here that’s getting to me, but my instincts are overwhelmingly saying, “Creek!”
|Cloud Production||4 /5|
In a word: MENTHOL-LYPTUS! (TM?)
Immediate dominant but not overpowering menthol and coolness. Not a menthol tobacco user nor big mint guy; the ad copy appealed to me because hey, summer’s hot, and someone said “Mountain Dew.” The second noticeable feature is in fact the soda pop and I love that the juice-pressers have figured out how to add a carbonated sensation into the mix. Definitely a sweet lemon-lime. In the background but serving to kind of tie the first two pieces is a hint of [blue]berry, as advertised. Not highly noticeable but if it were 50/50 with the lemon-lime, that might be off-balance.
Tough to say where we sit: 4.0 or 4.25, but regardless, very nice addition to my order from Apothecary, and a nice break from my typical creams and tobaccos.

Tasty, and yes, evocative of carnival treats, but its downfall is in always GUNKING up my coils! No joke: cut it with vodka!
This juice is one of the top ranked on juicedb, and it’s pretty good; I’m happy to finally have tried it. However, it does not surpass Cuttwood’s Mr. Fritter nor many others for apple essence. Nothing gets away without having highs and lows. I will say that opening it, popping the cork, taking off her top, etc. etc., I was excited on the crisp aroma and for having read all your sultry reviews of this stuff.
The top layer is resoundingly apple-cider. That tartness should be expected going in, because tartness can lend itself to a bit of confusion with other typically tart fruit-vapes, cherry being the usual suspect.
Maybe my gear isn’t up to snuff but Seasonal 00 might need to be thinned out.
The winner in this alchemy, the no-kidding winnah is the deep fried pastry base and I hate to echo the carnival connotation lest people get stuck on that, but yes, funnel cake is accurate. The degree to which it mimics this pastry, and evokes the summer fair, incomplete without carnies, no-chance prize games and clowns/clownery, sticky powdered sugar hands, tank tops and beer guts, cleavage tattoos and overflowing trash bins with wasps swarming nearby is incredible. So what I’m saying is - try this stuff but don’t forget that it’s what Six Flags might be to Busch Gardens. And give her your phone number, maybe have some fun, but take her to a motel and maybe don’t have a shotgun or Elvis wedding 🕺
Reviewed using: Kage BOFA @ 29W. Note: after I loaded up my old stubby standby Smok Vape 22 with this, it came out much better. Not sure why! 🤔
Outstanding with coffee!
I had no idea this was one of juicedb's top vapes of all-time. "Yo, I'mma let you finish, but, all-time!" I selected it as a result of one of Apothecary's stellar sales - like 50% off - and found Elixir 04 rich and deep, unlike their lighter peanut butter and almond blend (which I also like, if for its meekness). Don't be afraid to try this one out for one of your first orders. It was potent and memorable. Somewhere in the RY4 category. The pecan was a perfect cap.
Possibly Apothecary’s #1. 100% accurate to company description.

Bread pudding... deeply honeyed... liquidy and rather sweet with a hint of graham and smidgen of banana and spice. Surely worthy of a top-shelf “4” rating. Wanted to know if this was Cuttwood’s flagship juice, with the reserve designation and all, the ceremonious pomp that comes with having so many reviews and a famous label. Need to give this some additional contemplation and see if other furtive flavors come out.
Late Edit: Still love it. And as another user noted, it does have tobacco present, would indeed go with a Guinness, and is definitely worthy of being called “premium”. Simple, enjoyable, rich. To repeat, bread pudding. Tasty!
I’m a fan.
Point one: JUICES. Sinners’ Drink is my favorite vape of all time, a just fantastic milky horchata. Mmm! And Spruce Beer is a unique and highly enjoyable piney berry mix unlike any other. Can’t explain why, but was trying to find something woody and there it was. Incidentally, these are both from its subsidiary business, Keystone Vapes, but it was out of an extremely wise partnering move.
Point two: SERVICE. After one of my orders was misdirected, I worked with customer service for a prompt resolution. It’s clear to me that they value their clients.
I hope they could make their site a bit quicker to scan through everything at once, but I don’t mind browsing. Hats off to Vapor Chef for all-around excellence. Thank you! 👨🏻🍳
Subtlety. Peanut butter is dominant; dry almond on the way out; and coconut surfacing and diving at all phases.
I prefer Bigglesworth Labs’ Prairie for its potentcy. Elixir 08 is good but not a must-buy.
Dude... I ate blueberry pancakes for breakfast and then I loaded my tank with this. Pretty righteous, bro-ho-ho! Had never tried blueberry juice prior - blackberry, yes, but no blue! What a great pairing. Not sure how you could make blueberry much better. Swirls of mashed up frozen fruit?
Description is made in homage to Game of Thrones, which I never got into. Nevertheless, this was a very good vape, very flavorful and warmly scented, pleasing and lingering. Nothing exotic, and probably a niche flavor, but not short on enjoyability.
Sweet, simple, concentrated blueberry preserves, flaky crust, good duration of taste and aroma. Winner.
I want to live inside a humidor now!!
Had second thoughts after choosing this as a free bonus, but man, what a treat it turned out to be. Very classic, very “dad”. Nothing synthetic tasting at all. Tobacco is rich but not overpowering and very cured. Evokes a very comfortable mood. Bravo. 👏 👏 Deserves a premier reputation. No comments nor concerns about any cherry component- it’s just tobacco and warmth.
Not bad, need to play with wattage! Mixed feelings on this one.
Picked up Occult Grey Magick on a “flash” discount through Apollo, as well as their coffee flavor (Black Magick) and kept it in my desk drawer at work. I needed some time to let it grow on me. I was intrigued to try a blackberry flavor without really knowing what I was in for.
Let’s go in reverse order: The aroma left behind is quite brilliant; brings to mind Hostess Fruit Pies if you’re old enough to remember those. The exhale is fairly balanced (I’ve seen “silky”) with slightly astringent fruit and a - maybe - custard. And the inhale is the only kind of debatable part- it tasted to me a bit like licking cosmetics, or like the berries rode in on a magick carpet of Play-Doh. So in that final regard there is a bit of a flaw. But aren’t we all a little bit flawed?
Like I said, I needed it to grow on me and I’ve put aside some of my misgivings. Not my go-to, but a reliable fruit-pie in my vape chest. Not unpleasant.
