    by , 04-14-2013 at 01:36 AM

    Here's a review of three excellent e-liquids from Highbrow Vapor. It's rare that I love all three juices in a single review, but that was precisely the case with these Highbrow products -- very tasty and well done. Full review and steeping notes here and the Cliffs Notes version below.

    Limoncello -- A sweet and lemony juice with a touch of tang, reminiscent of Marino's Italian ice.

    Tabac de Perique -- My favorite ...
