Alright Phoenix Vapors, I thought I would start a new thread to share my thoughts on some of the local juices from B/M stores or local online venders. I am a bit hesitant to share this only because I hate to admit all the juice flavors I have bought over the last few weeks. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to discuss the juice options we all have locally in the valley. Also, most BM let you sample juices before buying so I would love to get ideas on which ones to sample next or even mix together. I think we all know this but my disclaimer is that: taste in juice is very subjective. I think all the juices I have "taste good" to someone, but some of them just don't taste that good to me. Most of my juices are at the 12MG nictoine level as well. Listed by shop alphabetical order: Butt Out Chai Tea Summer I wouldn't say that I have an all day vape, because I rotate between clearomizers throughout the day. However, the Chai Tea blend at Butt Out would be the closest thing to my all-day vape. There is hardly a noticeable difference between this blend and the winter blend. However, I did feel a more minty flavor in this one once I got it home and vaped it in my ProTank. Chai Tea Winter As stated above, the Chai Tea blends are the closest thing to my all day vape. The winter and summer aren't much different, but if I had to choose the Winter blend would be my preference. I only vape this in my ProTank, because it feels like vaping heaven for me when i get that flavorful cool exhale. This is also the only juice I vape at 7MG nicotine, because I vape it so often I don't need that much nicotine in it. Calypso The first juice I bought and the first juice I gave away. This is the tobacco blend that I thought I wanted once I gave up smoking. After getting into other flavors, I can no longer handle this juice. Da BrockFor about three visits in a row I would go into Butt Out and test this juice out. I always wanted to buy it but never pulled the trigger. Then on Monday, I finally did and all I can say is "what was I waiting for?" This juice is fantastic, I will probably pick up a second bottle on Friday just for fear an apocalypse could happen over the weekend and I wouldn't have one stashed away. I don't know what's in it, since the Butt Out website doesn't list the flavor mix. A review on the website does say a "smooth strawberry" flavor, but I also think there is some raspberry mixed in. It's a very light and subtitle style flavored juice, which I love because it makes you want to Vape it over and over to get more. Lucy in the Sky I know from online and people I meet in the shop that a lot of people love this juice. For me, I liked maybe half of an iClear 16 worth, but it just didn't do anything for me long term. Part of the problem may have been that this was when I thought I needed 24mg of nicotine in a juice. I haven't tasted it in a while, but I believe it is a tropical flavor. I remember some pineapple/coconut mix. Red Devil If you had red hots or hot tamale candy, then you know what this juice will taste like. I'm a huge cinnamon candy fan, however it is great in only small doses. Red Devil is amazing to me for about five vapes and then my mouth starts to go numb from flavor overload. It actually works great to clear your palette, and I had a case of "vapors tongue" last week that this juice helped in rebooting my taste buds. I'm glad I have it in my stash, but it will probably last me a very long time to get through a bottle. I'm waiting on some cheap clearos from FastTech and going to put this in the tank to have along if I just need a hit or two of cinnamon now and then. Red DudeIt's Mountain Dew Code Red. This purchase for me was that dreaded, "it tastes amazing when sampling it but once you take it home and put it in your tank you get sick of it after a few hits." It's a good juice don't get me wrong, but just not for me and I don't know what made me think it was when I was in the store. My hope is I can find something to blend it with at some point to make it vapable for me again. Rockets Glare You will always remember your first love. That's what this vape is to me. This was the flavor that made me realize, I don't need to only vape tobacco flavors. It's very mellow strawberry taste with an even more mellow sour flavor...it's a brilliant subtle blend that makes you want to keep vaping to get more and more of that flavor. I will always have a reserve of this juice handy. Strawberry BananaThis is what it says it is and strawberry mixes are the biggest fruit flavors I enjoy. This one is not different. It sort of reminds me of something you would get in a smoothie at Jamba Juice, like a Jamba eJuice. I went though this bottle pretty quick and will get it again, but am currently in no hurry to buy another bottle right now only because I have other similar style juices that I like just a little better (Rockets Glare, Da Brock) Vicious Vanilla Rockets Glare was my first love, but Vicious Vanilla was my first lust. I was part of the purchase I made when I bought my eGo starter kit, and will forever have a bottle on hand. I just absolutely love the taste of vanilla, and this vanilla is perfect for my buds. I kind of went a little overboard on this juice in the beginning and had to slow down on it because I was worried i was getting burnt out . However, now it has been a great juice to mix with some other bottles. I have it mixed with my English Toffee flavor, and may mix in a little with an RY4 if it doesn't taste like I want it to after seeping. Hi-Tec Black Cherry If Rockets Glare was my first love and Vanilla was my first lust, then Black Cherry from Hi-Tec would best be described as my newest girlfriend. This flavor is so diverse. It has tons of flavor to vape on it's own, but if it starts vaping too sweet for you, then you can mix it with other juices to make bad juices taste good and good flavors taste great. I became a scientist last night and did a few experiments last nights of juice mixing. I currently have a few drops of it mixed in with a cola juice, a raging bull juice and a da brock juice. The Black Cherry adds a new dimension to each of these: The Cola and Black Cherry makes it taste like a Cherry Coke, the Raging Bull (Red Bull Flavor) and Black Cherry together give a subtle sweet yet tart taste and the Da Brock juice (which is amazing on it's own) flavors pop more when mixed with a small drop of Black Cherry. I can't say enough about this juice right now. Double Stuffed Oreo Have you ever bought a juice and as the cashier was ringing it up you thought to yourself, "I don't know why I am buying this?" That is this juice for me right now, even though I just bought it yesterday. Don't get me wrong, this juice tastes amazing and is spot on with it tasting like Oreo's. Next time you go into the store, I recommend you sample it. The problem is, I"m afraid a dessert style juice like this just may not be something I want to vape often or for a long time. It's like ordering a cheesecake for dessert every few months to taste that amazing flavor, but you can only have a few bites because it's way too rich. I'm going to let it seep for a while, and once I get my cheapo clearos in I am going to put it in a tank and leave at home so I can have a few vapes of it now and then during an after dinner or midnight style "vape snack" Earl Grey Tea My review is short on this one, because I just bought it yesterday and the tank I put it in didn't work. Since I am in love with the Chai Tea flavor, I had to sample it and it tasted very good. I does not have a huge amount of flavor to it, but that is the exact reason I bought this juice. Sometimes I just want to vape, but my taste buds are still recovering from all the other flavors I have been vaping during the day. So this is just for a refreshing style vape in those instances. Killer Kiwi This is one of those juices that I loved in the store and I will forever struggle to recreate that same feeling now that I brought it home. I love Kiwi and I loved the flavor, but after vaping it at home the Kiwi flavor pops way too much for me. I have been trying to make the Kiwi flavor more subtle by mixing it with other juices. However, even a few drops of this juice with another juice makes everything taste like kiwi and over powers all other flavors. I am going to seep this juice since I got it on Monday and hopefully it will come together with a much less potent kiwi flavor. Raging Bull I got this because I love the Red Bull flavored juice I had from Vast Vapors and since I had a free bottle from Hi-Tec, I used it to get another bottle. Granted, I'm not a Red Bull drinker so I don't know how close this is to that flavor, but I would describe this more like sweet tart candies. In any event, I love that type of flavor every now and then and this juice hits the spot for me. Although, I must say that mixing it with some black cherry has made this juice one of my favorites right now. It makes it more subtle of a tart flavor. RY4 Tobacco Haven't vaped this yet, as I am waiting on a seep. I just need to have some handy, for those times I get a Tobacco urge. The RY4 line has been the best for those cravings, but the only one I have really enjoyed so far is the RY4 I have listed under xTreme Vapours. If this doesn't taste well after seeping, I may just add Vicious Vanilla and/or Toffee flavor to get this to where I want it to be. Tropical Tantrum The jury is still out on this juice as well for me. Initially, this juice just has too strong of a pineapple flavor for me that I didn't taste when I first sampled it in store. However, I am still waiting on seeping to bring out some of the other flavors. Vapor Cola When I was waiting at the store, some guy walked in and bought like 10 bottles of this juice. As the impressional man I am, I of course had to follow suit and bought me a bottle as well. It wasn't a bad decision, the Cola flavor is really good and you can even taste some fizz in the hit. Warning: Don't vape this while drinking a Coke because your Coke will be boring. In any event, mix with some Black Cherry and you have a nice little Cherry Coke. I can't wait to experient with more flavors to mix with this Cola flavored, I have a feeling it will add a lot to many juices. Synergy English Toffee I love the flavor of Toffee so I wanted to give this a try. On it's own, it just wasn't that good to me. However, I slowly started mixing in with Vanilla and it made both juices better. I am almost out of this juice now, and may get another batch but I am in no hurry at the moment. Vast Vapor Red Bull This juice tastes just like the Ragging Bull from Hi-Tec, so this would be the same review. The only difference is you get twice as much juice at Hi-Tech, so I will get it there from now on. XTreme Vapours Granny's Apple This was a bottle I inherited from a coworker that bought it and decided he only liked tabacco flavors. This juice didn't do much for me. I actually felt like I was vaping water, and not much flavor. I will keep around, maybe add it to something or just try it when I am feeling like giving out second chances. RY4 TobaccoI absolutely love this juice as far as tabacco flavors go. I needed to get some for my grandfather and this is the only one we both agree on that tastes good. I was given my first bottle from my coworker, and already had him pick up another bottle since he lives on the west side of town and I'm in the east valley. This will be the standard RY4 for me, and it will be hard to find an RY4 that tops this one. RY5 TobaccoTasted to me like the Calypso flavor I first bought when I quit smoking. It's just not my cup of tea, because I like to vape only sweetier tabacco flavors like the RY4. Zikwig Gummy Bear As mentioned in other threads, Zikwig isn't my favorite store and the only one that didn't let me sample juices before buying. However, I wanted to try Gummy Bear and it was the only shop nearby that had it that day. Anyway, I really enjoyed this juice alot until I went to Hi-Tec and tasted their Gummy Bear. I can't explain the difference, but the Hi-Tec sample I tried tasted pretty darn good. Suprisingly, I didn't buy the Hi-Tec version it then since it looks like I have bought almost every juice in the Valley. However, I plan to at some point. Just as a side note, these are four other juices I have in small sample pack bottles. I haven't tried them yet, as I don't want to use up a clearo until I get more to sample juices. I got the two from Desert Vapes to have some menthol flavors, and the other three from hot rod vapors were part of a sample pack. Desert Vapes Blue Ice Fire and Ice Hot Rod Vapors (Local Online) Aces Fuzzy Dice Redline Lemonade That's a lot to review, but at least it saved me from spending my time online or at some B&M buying more juices I don't need right now. Anyway, I hope that gave you all some ideas on juices to sample in the future, and I would love to hear any of your thoughts on these juices, as well as to any other ideas of juices or juice mixing that you have experienced from locally Cheers!
