Juice Reviews/Opinions - For the Aussie Palate.
I was reading through the other Au threads and was trying to take note what flavours and juice suppliers got the thumbs up, I thought I would start this thread for all us Aussies to rate and review our latest and greatest purchases from around the globe.
I will start it off with my latest batch of liquids, using the x/10 scale comparing to say a standard Dekang Tobbacco being a 5/10.
Devices: E9 Carto @ 5v / Indulgence @ 3.7/7.4 w 401/901/801 atty and KR8D1 Cartos / Janty Stick-801 atty/ Joye 510
Supplier: ........... (supposed to be VG but still says PG on carto boxes)
All have good TH (24/36mg) and vapour production, some seem thicker than others.
Chocolate---- 8/10 Great real milk chocolate taste! Liquid Cadbury. (Harder to detect on the 510/801)
Strawberry--- 7/10 Yummy strawberry candy type flavour. (chuppa-chup strawberry)
Menthol----- 7/10 Very dark and more 'tobaccoey' than Dekang Menthol- Great to mix with tobbacco flavs, not with fruity/sweet ones.
Licorice ------3/10 Not a very strong licorice taste, but a weird bitterness in the background, I still vaped it all day though.
Plum------ 8/10 Fantastic. Dark and fruity, sweet and juicey!
China----- 6/10 Reminded me of Chinese cigs that clients would give me as gifts, it probably should score higher as it did seem to be very close to what it is supposed to be. Good if you like Chinese Cigerettes.
Oral Freshner----4/10 Premium Healthcare range, it was ok but not as minty or full flavoured as I was expecting, still a good thick vape. Probably not worth the premium price.
Green Tea---- 8/10 A real surprise! I am not a fan of tea and only ordered it out of curiosity, but it makes a great vape, slightly sweet with a bit of body.
Peach-------7/10 Light, sweet and fruity. I didn't think I would like it, but I do.
Orange------6/10 Fanta/sunkist/vitamin C and a bit of tobacco flavour, not a strong orange flavour and not too sweet, I think this one will grow on me.
Blueberry----- 7/10 Very sweet, more a dessert vape than a fruit one, and it is my favourite before bedtime. ATM
Grape----- 7/10 Fake sweet USA Grape like Hubba-Bubba or 7-11 Grape Slushie, it is another that is more deserty than fruity.
Supplier Eastmall (Dekang)
Menthol------7/10 Great light menthol flavour, great TH, no good by itself but good to mix with some tobacco flavs and better than the ........... menthol for mixing with light fruity flavs. I go through more of this stuff than anything else.
Marlboro---- 6/10 I used to hate this stuff when I first started vaping, and left a few bottles in storage. I ran out of other tobacco flavs last weekend so I dug some out, vaped heaps and now I think it is pretty good.
Pineapple----2/10 sickly sweet, cheap/fake but still ok to mix with coconut/vanilla. Mixer only.
Lemon-----3/10 It is growing on me, subtle flavour, should be ok to mix with.
Brandy----1/10 Sweet,sickly,chemically, headache inducing.
Cherry-----3/10 Sickly sweet/chemically. OK Mixer -Strong flavour.
Chocolate----3/10 Sickly/chemically. Mixer.
Cola---------4/10 Pepsi. Ok for something different.
Red Bull-----5/10 It tastes just like Redbull.
Vanilla------1/10 Liquid evil
Watermelon---3/10 Strong flavour, ok mixer.
I will do more tomorrow.
Remember, taste is very subjective and these are just my opinions, what tastes good to me may be bad for you and vice-versa.
I would encourage everyone to try them all yourself and post your opinions, thoughts and reviews so we can get to know each others tastes and hopefully find someone with whom we identify.
What I'd really love would be a Eucalyptus flavour. That would own.
Sadly I’ve only tried Heaven’s gift Dekang thus far, and I’ve only tried 4 out of ten. Since I find the Dekang flavour quite prominent and what ever is added, tends to be just a small hint of. Probably because I’ve only got a 510 right now. Have other models of e-cigs coming, most likely next week. During the day, at work, the 510 is perfect…but in the evenings I think I would like to tone down the concentration and throat hit whilst relaxed…enjoy a vape rather taking it to rid of a craving.
Oh, I've got an Eucalyptus flavoured something coming from Ms T...agree that it sounds nice to vape.
This is a really good idea for a thread - I get totally lost digging through all the yank reviews.
My Eastmall order has still not arrived after 11 days and I'm getting excuses from EM about some issue with Customs and EMS in China.
Therefore I can only review the limited started pack I got from e-cigarette-mart.com:
Dunhill ----- 5/10 Does not taste like Dunhill but at least is not sickly sweet like some of the others
Coffee ----- 6/10 The best of a bad bunch - Does taste like coffee (really bad instant coffee with 5 spoons of sugar)
Rum ------- 4/10 Has hint of rum flavor but mostly chemically
Red Bull ----- Yuck yuck yuck - Tastes like I'm vaping some sort of $2 purfume.
Things have heated up around here when I was on holiday!
I think I'll just copy and paste the small review I did a little while ago and jazz it up a bit.
I'm expecting some more flavours tomorrow so will review more!
Supplier: Heaven Gifts
RY4 -- After vaping this for a while I still love it for a all-day vape. At first it was more of a taste of tobacco with slight vanilla/caramel taste. Now I'm getting just a sweet taste kinda like burnt sugar. Love it!
Vanilla -- Real smooth tasting and and a very vanillery, I love anything vanilla so I enjoy this one. It's good to mix with too. Ie. cola, red bull.
Dr. Pepper -- Does not taste like Dr. Pepper at all!
It tastes more like aniseed with a real medicinal flavour. Yeah Dr. Pepper does taste medicinal but not like.
After a while I can actually vape this and say I like it on it's own - but only for a short time. Lets just say I can't wait for my cola to arrive so I can mix Cola, Dr. Pepper and Red Bull! (All time fave flavour! Hopefully)
Flue Cured Tobacco -- My fave so far from H-G. It's a simple but strong Tobacco-type flavour. I vape this solo, or sometimes mix it with other 'bacco juices like camel if I'm feeling like a big night out. (Can't drink and vape sweet juice).
I like the idea of the thread DB, so I'll sticky it and see how it goes

Rum -- Bloody awesome! Taste just like Rum! Good throat hit too.
Cola -- Tastes like those little cola lollies we used to buy at school without the fizziness! I've been adding all sorts to it too - made a mixture of Cola/Red Bull/Vanilla/Dr. Pepper. (Wow!)
Bubblegum -- Tastes nothing like bubblegum, more like mint chewing gum. Not my flave of choice, might have to stash this one away for a rainy day.
Menthol -- Pretty much straight menthol. Now ppl have told me to get this as an added throat hit to other juices but I tried it and it just over powers everything! Apart form that, not bad... One bloody hell of a throat it but!
Grape -- Very nice strong grape flavour, similar to a grape lolly.
Peach -- Mixture of a peach/apricot flavour. Good for all you fruit lovers. Not bad throat hit.
Mango -- Prefer this over peach, stronger flavour. Just tastes like mango.
A couple more (still using standard dekang tobacco as a 5/10 for rating comparison .)
Vanilla: 9/10 Real vanilla icecreamy taste, great to mix with just about anything, love it!
Hilton: 5/10 Not real tobaccoey and has a odd sweet taste to it.
555: 6/10 nice, smooth light tobaccoey flavour.
Flue cured: 6/10 Very dark and rich heavy flavour, strong pipe tobacco or white-ox feel to it. but can get a bit sickly as an all dayer. Good for that big night out
Eastmall (Dekang 26mg)
Hilington/Hilton: 5/10 It is pretty good standard tobacco flavour
Peanut butter: 6/10 Really peanutty, they nailed this one exactly, very strong flavour and hard to get the flavour out of attys. A really thick taste.
Double Mint: 4/10 Very minty and tastes like mouthwash and mint chewing gum. Not real good on it's own, but good to mix with and use it to make a good mint/menthol blend.
Kent/Kant: 7/10- Probably my favourite DK tobacco. Great all dayer.
Strawberry: 5/10 Nice candy type strawberry, slightly too artificial but still good.
Mango: 5/10 Nice, sweet mango taste, probably how I would imagine a mango lolly would taste.
Remember with Eastmall to get the bonus VG-36mg mixing liquids for $3 in the 5x20ml custom sampler, and instead of adding optional extra normal bottles for $6 ea. to the list just make another 5x20ml order so you get another 2 bonus VG36 mixers. (I have stuffed it up a few times)

Hey all. Another migrant from the Whirlpool e-cig thread here. I've only been on a 510 for nine days so far, but I'm loving vaping, and this thread looks great as I'm sure to be wanting to try more and more flavours soon.
I've only tried four flavours from healthcabin so far, but should be getting some more in the next day or two. I haven't really tried enough yet to rate out of ten, so I'll just give opinion:
Fluecured Tobacco VG - I really like this one. Goes great with a beer. It has some kinda honey like sweetness to it and a fairly strong, dry tobacco like flavour.
RY4 - This was the first juice I tried and it weirded me out a bit at first, but it's really grown on me. Quite sweet and caramel like, but with 'tobacco' in the background.
Watermelon - I totally loved this when I first tried it. It's quite sweet and is not something I'd like to vape for long stretches, but definitely a really nice change from the tobacco flavours.
DK-TAB - Gross. I don't like this at all. Bleyargh.
Welcoem to the forum k.rad, I'm sure you'll fit in well.. and don't be shy to ask questions either.
