Vulcan Vape, Alien Visions, Want2Vape--review

Vulcan Vape is an unusual vendor in that they don't make their own E-liquids: rather, they sell other vendor's products in a sort of emporium format. The owner, Wes, will also seek out liquids for special order.
Needless to say this is a boon to international customers who are unable to get their hands on US-only liquids. Products were shipped quickly and securely. As per usual, the week or two that it takes to arrive in Australia provides adequate steeping for most juices. All liquids were ordered in 18mg. PG/VG ratio is not selectable.
Want2Vape Campfire Coffee and Creamy Espresso
Want2Vape's website describes Campfire Coffee as "coffee meets RY4". It is the smell of a handful of freshly-ground beans, rather than the smell of a beverage, and I am certain that there is a tobacco base. This is heavenly. Not the least bit sweet, but not burnt or over-roasted as lots of coffee liquids can be. I am confident in describing this as my favourite unsweetened coffee E-liquid. (See my review of Cauldron's Wizard's Brew for my favourite sweet coffee.)
Creamy Espresso is similar, but with a hint of sweetness. This is true to its name, a cup of brewed coffee. Also splendid but I prefer Campfire.
Want2Vape Belgian Breakfast
This one, sadly, goes into the pile of disappointing, over-sweetened breakfast liquids. I've yet to find one I liked, and was optimistic since I have been very impressed with everything from W2V so far.
Want2Vape Rock Star
This is a fabulous RY4 with a bright, crisp flavour profile. For reasons I cannot fathom, the sensation on inhale is like biting into an apple: juicy, tart and a little sweet. (I'm talking about texture sensation only: there is no apple flavour in Rock Star whatsoever.) I have found that Rock Star serves as an excellent "reset button" for the palate, and this liquid has a permanent place in my kit.
Another stellar W2V RY4, this one is exclusively sold through Vulcan. Check out my comments on "The Really Big RY4 Roundup" here.
Want2Vape Red Pirate
RYgar without the vanilla and caramel. Toasty warm medium-bodied tobacco. This is another standard-setting tobacco from W2V. Mild enough to vape continuously, but don't take that to mean uninteresting. Far from it. Apparently this is based on chewing tobacco. I've never chewed so I wouldn't know, but don't let that put you off. Marvelous stuff.
Alien Visions Boba's Bounty
The one, the only, the much-discussed and dissected. It is cola? Is it tapioca pearls? Is it a cocktail served in that Mos Eisley cantina?
No. It is oatmeal-raisin cookies. And it's delicious.
Alien Visions Flue-Cured
A soft, musky tobacco not unlike Pink Spot's Honey-Cured. Outrageous vapor production (it is 100% VG). Pleasant but not a favourite...yet.
Thanks very much to Wes at www.vulcanvape.com for excellent service, and also for expanding the options of us international types. I am a devoted customer.
