    Default Opinions re: an order I just received.

    Hi everyone, I received an order of Flavorz by Joe yesterday from LiteCigUsa. It was marked "Born May, 2013". I was like great it will be nice and steeped. Well, it's kind of flavorless. I've vaped this juice before so I know what it tastes like. Do you think it still may need to be steeped, since it's been sitting around or is six months too long for the juice to maintain its strong flavor?

    TIA

    Was your last order steeped that long? If not, I would contact the vendor.

    You no longer smoke, and it's very important that you don't use that word anymore.
    If you want to know why it is important, feel free to ask.

    Can you compare it to your former bottle to see if it too were steeped?

    the juice was "born" on that day, no doubt a c-section....perhaps in a pool or some new age hippie way without pain killers....


    point being, it may have gone right into frozen storage after being made int heir plant. in which case its not really steeped.

    I have had older liquid go both ways. More correct, some never got better, some stayed the same. Only a few heavy dark flaves got heavier and thicker. So those I called a loss. Having said that I would question a 6 month old bottle. That seems a bit long as there are no real set expirations dates on e-liquid that I have found.

    As before said, if it were frozen, that might be a different matter.
    Air is good. Its like the best air.

    First let me say: I have never encountered anyone who was able to "smoke" an ejuice even smearing it on a cigarette or cigar. Terminology matters.

    As for the 6-month taste thing. I have had juices that diminished in flavor over a large span of time like that. I have also had ones that increased. Oddly, there comes a point of too much flavor creating a lack of flavor. DIYers know this. I've also bough juice I had bought before that didn't taste the same or have the same strength of flavor up or down. Contact the vendor. BUT, I've also had spells of vaper's tongue so give it some time to see if that's going on with you.

    I believe that the dates added on some bottles are when the bases (flavors, VG/PG %s) are mixed. However, some places then add the nicotine when you order it. I would call/email and ask what that date refers to.

    Which flavor if I may ask? Boy wonder from Flavorz is my favorite I have found so far.

    If at any time I offend you with something I post, you better suck it up, I'm going to do it again.
