When I first cracked the bottle open, I was taken aback by how fragrant this juice was, a rich creamery sort of aroma that I couldn't easily describe but nevertheless found very appealing. Much to my surprise upon actually firing it up, I really didn't taste anything resembling actual strawberries but rather more like sweetened condensed milk with what I thought might be a hint of almonds. My eyes quickly darted back to the label to make sure I'd received the correct juice, but already I was thinking that I'd be happy even if it wasn't what I'd ordered. After three or four days in the cabinet I went back to it again and experienced what many others have also reported: the strawberry flavor had appearing on stage...in the form of the pink Nesquick rabbit!

Perhaps the only truly negative aspect I found to this juice was the fact that I have never liked the taste of Nesquick Strawberry Milk, and yet this juice, which tastes as close to it as anything I can imagine, is undeniably enjoyable to my palette. I suppose if you had your heart set on an earnest recreation of fresh strawberries swimming in the summer's most decadent cream then you would have good reason for disappointment but I came to this juice just looking for something new to enjoy and this hit the mark squarely.

It certainly lacks any trace of natural flavoring, so if that's important to you then I'd advise you to look elsewhere. I for one have no qualms with something that tastes like it was made specifically not to spoil, especially if it was overly sweet like this, so I'm going to miss this little liquid approximation of a gulp of Strawberry Quik after a mouthful of cotton candy when it runs out. Though probably not interesting enough to merit reordering, I'll speak fondly of it when the occasion merits.

Golden State crafted another solid winner for their Rise and Shine line with Cinnamon Roll. It is a classic embodiment of the hot, bakery confection with such depth and richness that I can imagine being just as satisfied with a tank of it to satisfy a craving for the genuine article as with a trip to the bakery. From the spicy warmth of the cinnamon to the freshness of dough just plucked off a hot baking sheet to the unctuous taste of a thin melted sugar glaze, it is a delight to vape from the first cloud to the last. At times I found myself wondering if it may even represent the first step towards a common sci-fi trope where humanity abjures traditional cooking for a diet of slimy gruel that's merely flavored to mimic our beloved cuisine. If all of it was as convincing as this juice...I fear that I would be likely to accept such a future without much complaint.

I do want to take notice of the fact that this is not the overly indulgent and cloyingly sweet cinnamon roll that Cinnabon's marketing team has done so well to implant in our minds as the way a proper cinnamon roll should be. Golden State has opted for something that hearkens much closer to what has been produced in small, hometown bakeries for far longer: a balanced treat that leaves one hungry for more at its conclusion rather than worrying about blood glucose levels and feeling like they've had enough cinnamon for many days to come. This is most apparent in the taste of the icing, which reminds me much more of what adorns the Pillsbury Grands that were a staple of my childhood than the triple-bypass cream cheese style found atop the above-mentioned shopping mall fare.

While it did benefit slightly from time to steep, it was perfectly enjoyable the day it arrived in the mail. I found it equally suited to serving as an all-day vape as an occasional treat; whatever I asked of it, this juice seemed all too happy to deliver. Its aftertaste does seem to linger more than most of the other flavors in my stable, and thus I did tend to switch to another more ephemeral juice near meal times, though I'd hardly call that a criticism. If you have the opportunity, I can't recommend highly enough the experience of a leisurely weekend morning spent with a newspaper, a freshly-brewed cup of coffee, and a tank each of Cinnamon Roll and another of Golden State's Rise and Shine line, Apple Waffle. I'd never felt so deeply ashamed of having loved cigarettes as much as once I did as the first time I treated myself to that blissful combination.

This is a pleasant vape, and very faithful to its description on the label. I've never eaten dragonfruit, but based on several juices I've tried I imagine that I'd like it, finding many similarities between it and kiwi, along with notes of watermelon and pear. Those flavors are all present in careful proportion on the inhale, offering a full-bodied flavor profile without being overly rich. When it's time to exhale, you encounter all the strawberries and cream that you were promised in the description. Sadly, along with them I find there's also a very distinct chlorophyll taste, almost exactly like you'd experience if you ate a strawberry without first removing the small leaves at the top. It certainly doesn't ruin the overall experience, but I do count it as detracting from the potential enjoyability.

This isn't a juice that I'd avoid in the future, as the positives do strongly outweigh the negatives, but neither do I expect to intentionally seek it out. I'm quite sorry that the taste of greenery didn't dissipate at some point as I vaped through the bottle, as without it this would've been another remarkable treat from TBD.

It's easy to see why this juice has such a great reputation here and in other vaping communities. I'm a big fan of key lime pie, to which this juice is often compared, though I don't see that as a prerequisite for enjoyment because this stuff is better in some ways than even the best key lime pie I've eaten.

When I first vaped this juice, the lime flavor was super-accurate and out in front, in many ways like biting into an actual lime wedge. While that was tolerable it was also very sharp, making this far from an all-day vape. After steeping just a couple days the lime flavor softened into a candy-like experience, and it was then that the creaminess was revealed, along with the most exquisite and realistic pie crust flavor. The sweetness of this juice has a cloying nature to it, so I'll need to take a break from it for awhile before reordering, but reorder I certainly will.

Wow, this stuff is a testament to the complexity that can be achieved by the truly gifted mixologists (what exactly is the preferred nomenclature for those who have chosen mixing e-juice as a profession?) in this industry. I didn't love everything about it but I loved the experience of it as it challenged me to focus on my senses in order to discern all the nuances contained therein. The more of it I vaped, the more there was to explore, and that should be lauded above all other observations I make here; experiencing something that has been elevated to an art form is always something to be cherished.

I vaped my first tank as soon as the package arrived, and at first I registered a profound disappointment. All I could taste from the first pull to the last was honeydew. Worse still, it wasn't that smooth, rich, creamy honeydew found at maximum ripening, but the sharp and aggressive sort experienced when the melon is still a bit too crunchy. Each puff was an assault on my palette, and stubbornly no other flavors seemed to be able to overcome that single flavor. Thankfully I was raised on a steady diet of waste-not-want-not and I resigned myself to the ignominious fate of vaping away the rest of the bottle in sullen disappointment, though that was scarcely what awaited me.

After roughly a week of occasional vaping, I started to notice some major differences in this juice, almost as though the honeydew were actually ripening in the bottle. As it did, the pear component began to assert its presence at each exhale. That was the first time I remember thinking that I might have something surprisingly remarkable on my hands.

After two weeks, I could taste cool, white peaches mixed in with the honeydew, not a lot, but just enough to strike an enjoyable contrast. Another week hence and suddenly there were the berries, faint enough to be indistinguishable individually but just right to flip the overall flavor profile from cool to rich. That was when I became an overall fan, and suddenly found myself giving this juice its own tank in stable of regular rotation. When I reached the end of the bottle a couple months after purchase, I surprised myself by instinctively adding it to list of things to reorder; my journey had ended far from where I expected it to.

I still wish the honeydew weren't such a dominating presence in it overall. That's in fact why I don't often eat honeydew for real, it's always been a bit of a bull in a china shop to my palette. Who knows, though? Perhaps this juice simply wouldn't work any other way. I'm willing to trust the creators in that regard, as they obviously have deeper insights into exciting the senses than I.

I've gone back and forth on this juice a few times, so it should come as no surprise that I have some highs and lows to report about it. As for the positives, it is largely faithful to its succinct self-description as fresh strawberries with yellow peaches. There's certainly a lot more strawberry in this mix than peach, which is somewhat disappointing, because the strawberry flavor is rather artificial in nature, far closer to a strawberry Pop-Tart filling than the genuine article or homemade preserve of it. When it first arrived it had a decidedly chemical aftertaste which was rather unpleasant, but thankfully that dissipated after a solid month of steeping. That was also when the peach notes made their presence known, though the two never quite married, instead they chose to simply coexist with the strawberry largely owning the inhale while the peach declared itself upon exhale. For its part, the peach flavor is much more natural and without question my favorite aspect of this juice.

In the end this is the kind of juice that I don't anticipate purchasing in the future, but one that I wouldn't be disappointed by should it appear as one of TBD's typical gift bottles included with each order. It's not a bad flavor in my reckoning, and I'm sure there are some who would enjoy it without reservation, though myself I wish it offered a more equal mix of the constituent flavors and more overall nuance in the flavor profile.

This is a difficult review to write as I received this as a free gift within an order I had placed at Keystone for some other flavors. As much as I'd like to reciprocate their generosity, to make a truthful report I have to confess that I did not care for this juice at all. When first opened the white tea flavors completely overwhelmed any trace of pineapple which might have been present.

Even if I were a fan of white tea in general, which I'm not, I suspect I still would've found this combination of flavors to be unbalanced to the point of being noxious. After three weeks of steeping the tea flavor has mellowed substantially but the pineapple remains nowhere to be found. What remains is a very subtle vape, I'd go so far as to say it's bland. That has its uses though, as I find it's a satisfactory palette cleanser for when I'm switching between two richer flavors. I'm not one to waste, or disrespect a gift, so I'll be sure to finish the bottle before the flavor erodes much further but will be happy when it's all gone.

First, some context: I'm Portuguese and owing to our past imperial connection to Brazil, we have a lot of products that feature a passion fruit flavor, and I love pretty much all of them. More specifically we have a passion fruit liqueur called maracuj√° (literally just the word for passion fruit) which is basically the most amazing thing ever invented. Like, "hello my name is roguescholar and I'm an alcoholic" style amazing, it's that good. I found this juice in the search for something to vape that captured its essence, and while I didn't stop here, I'm glad I found it along the way.

Dragon's Passion does have a faithful facsimile of passion fruit flavor that it integrates with several other intense fruit flavors, the most notable of which is a ripe, soft mango. Also discernable are raspberry and black cherry, and seemingly several others that are just hinted at. The result is something far more complex than what I was seeking, but is nonetheless satisfying in the most delightful way. I thought that I might grow tired of it quickly but that was certainly not the case; I tore through the first 30ml bottle in not even 10 days and quickly ordered another. It's not a daily vape for me, I prefer simpler flavors for that, but it is going to be one I keep on hand to rotate in from time to time. So long as you enjoy sweet, tropical flavors, I think you will find something to like here. Be sure to steep it for 5-7 days though, it was a little weak and had a slight chemical taste after only a couple days wait.

This is the juice that hooked me on ECBlends, and while it's not quite a home run, it's definitely a stand-up triple. The peach flavor is rich and bold but without being cloying or overpowering. It almost gives the vapor a sticky quality, I've even noticed smelling it on some of the shirts I wore if I was vaping heavy that day. I've gotten it with a shot of extra sweetener which was fine, but it's best to me when I don't mess with their formulation.

Like other reviewers, I didn't find any complexity in it, no white chocolate notes or vanilla as per the web site description. It really was like the sugar-coated peach gummy rings candy, which suits me just fine; I love those damned things. If you love peach flavor, it's safe to say that you'll enjoy this juice. Personally I've moved on to more nuanced peach juices (PeachBerry in Cream from ECBlends if you're looking for recommendations) but recently came across a not-quite-empty bottle in my stash box and was reminded of my early years vaping and how eye-opening this flavor was for a guy who had only tried tobacco flavors to that point. Definitely benefits from extra steeping, this near 8 month old stuff is possibly the best it's ever tasted.

This juice came very highly recommended by a friend, but I really struggled to finish the bottle. I've had good chocolate flavored juices before as well as good minty ones, but this tasted to me like both flavors lost something by being married. He described it as a vapor version of Andes after-dinner mints, but what I experienced could best be described as that cool yet overwhelming aftertaste from a thin, dark cigar.

I've never been a big cigar fan but I wasted time trying to be one in my early 20s and this was very reminiscent of a Montecristo Negro, very dark and fragrant, aromatic in a way that lingers on your tongue and lips. So aromatic in fact that it's one of the few juices that everybody in the room mentioned smelling when I'd exhale, even non-vapers/smokers. Sadly though the mint was just barely present as was the chocolate notes, my palette could really only get cream and tobacco notes from it.

A very complex tobacco flavor that doesn't bring to mind any particular brand of smokes, but does a great job of recreating the experience of an analog cigarette. I've since moved on to non-tobacco flavors of juice but if I ever got the itch for the flavor of real tobacco wrapped in paper, this is without a doubt the juice I'd buy.
