    Default AVE Maple Melody, problem

    Before I email AVE I wanted to get some input from the forum.

    I posted last week that I was finally going to try these guys. My order arrived today, and, well, I have issues. Just to clarify, this is the site I ordered from

    Sweet Flavors : Alien Visions E-Juice, Satisfaction Guaranteed

    Just to be sure I didn't get the clone site, which I don't think I did.

    Maple Melody is the color and consistency of used motor oil and tastes of nothing so much as burned plastic. It is positively unvapeable.

    Boba's bounty is faint but okay for about two hits before it burns the crap out of my throat. I ordered in 6 mg and this is what the bottle says as well. GJ is okay but faint. I initially wasn't going to order that last one but decided I should give it a shot.

    I have two questions for you all: Has anyone else ordered Maple Melody and had a different experience? Does Boba's normally have a kick your patootey throat hit? The BB makes me wonder if there was a mixup in nic level because it vapes like 36 mg.

    I'm asking this because I am wondering if a mistake was somehow made with my order. I am not trying to slam the vendor in any way, stuff happens, but I want some feedback so I know whether or not to contact them or just chalk it up as a "not for me"

    I am a Boba and Gorilla juice lover. I have heard some things about how recent orders taste very chemically and bad. The owners swear the recipe has not changed. I have a nice stock if old Boba. But I just got a new Gorilla Juice and it does seem a bit off. You might want to email them and see about replacing it. At least you're letting them know there is a problem. Can't hurt.

    My first BB purchase (from Alien VISIONS!!) was 3 days ago.....I got 24mg nic.....
    So far I've only dripped it -- haven't committed a tank to it (YET!!!)...
    But I noticed it DID have a kick, like an unfiltered vs filtered "stinkie"....NOT bad FLAVOR, just more throat hit than I had expected....
    Especially from 100% VG!!
    Now that I'm used to this.....I have NO complaints about the quality of AVE Boba's!!!
    Happy (vaping) Trails!

    What are you vaping the liquid in? A ProTank maybe? You say it vapes like a 36 mg, but have you had 36 mg, or are you comparing it other 6 mg?

    AVE does have a good TH, but I can't speak on 6 mg because that's far too low for me to vape their liquids. I have not had the Maple liquid.
    Your “palate” is the roof of your mouth, and by extension, your sense of taste. A “palette” is the flat board an artist mixes paint on (or by extension, a range of colors). A “pallet” is either a bed (now rare) or a flat platform onto which goods are loaded.

    I also am very disappointed in the bobas that I got. I thought they must have messed up making it. The only thing I tasted was a slight peppery flavor. Since I only got the small bottle I decided to just let it go though. I'm hoping they messes it up or going by everybody's else option of it' my taste buds must really be messes up.

    I got an order of Boba's, GJ and some other tobaccos yesterday. Tried dripping a few tonight to test fresh. Mine are all 12 mg and didn't notice any unusual TH. My first time with any AVE so I can't help on how close to "normal" they are. None tasted bad, just needs some steeping.

    I find that higher nic content juice burns my throat and even my mouth, now that I have dropped from 24mg to 6 mg. That is what I was basing my opinion on. As it turns out, I think I just burned my coil because the BB is now okay. I'm using an evod. The GJ is okay too.

    The maple melody got pitched though..something was definitely not right there and it wasn't my equipment.

    My order was small too, and I don't feel like putting the energy into going any further with it. I honestly like GLV El Kamino better so far. Was just kind of shocking after looking forward to trying it and seeing what all the hype was about, and having it be my most disappointing vapemail so far.

    Thanks all for your opinions!

    that's really strange. I have been vaping gorilla juice 18mg nic for almost a year now. never had any problems. BUT, it does sound like there has been a mix up. for over a year I vaped banana cream pie from roar, and it always tasted good. until one day I bought a 55ml bottle and it tasted HORRIBLE. and I knew exactly what a good batch tasted like. so I immediately knew something was way off. that was the day I stopped ordering juice and got into DIY. but I still get 30ml bottles of gorilla juice every once in a while.

    I was just about to ask if you had tried the juices on a fresh coil/wick, until I saw this.

    In the past, I've hastily judged many of my liquids as tasting bad, simply because I neglected to try them on fresh equipment first. I wanted to make sure that you weren't making the same mistake that I have.

    I'm glad to hear that you think that BB and GJ are "okay". I, too, expected much more out of them, given the hype. But, I do still think that there's some merit to the hype, because while I too just find them "okay" in terms of flavor, I do very much appreciate the fact that the flavor (IMO) is somewhat subdued, and I don't tire of them nearly as quickly as some other liquids. Some liquids I don't want to go through a whole tank of, but I can get through a whole tank of BB or GJ and not be sick of it, yet.

    I got three sample bottles from AVE a few weeks ago: BB, Blend 4 and Christy's Cappuccino. Steeped them for a week and they were tasteless to me. Waited another week. I tried Boba's again yesterday. Tasteless. Blend 4 had a little taste but not even enough for me to say what it tasted like. I don't think I have vaper's tongue because I can taste the other juices I have from different vendors. I don't know what's going on.
