    I call it what it is. Aging. It's what's used in Whiskey/Bourbon making.

    Sorry, not trying to sound like a jerk or snob. I don't know why it bugs me so much. :oops:

    More of a question here. Ordered Voos Broo and House last week due to constant good reviews. House I can tolerate and can tell it will grow on me when steeped. Voos... All i get is black twizzler. Really strong. Anyone else had this and steeping corrected it? I hate paying $17 for a 30mil of juice that makes my head hurt. Hoping steeping helps. Can anyone advise? Thanks much.

    Aging is essential to Voo's Broo. Also Pumpkin pie (some like it fresh, not me though) and Voodoo. House is good fresh but gets many times better as it ages. Us House Heads buy 1 or 3 120ml 'jugs' at a time. Twisted Tobacco is the same. Great fresh, but it continually gets better.

    Try the Pie! And the Twisted.

    Welcome to The CC Posse. We don't bite. Hard.

    Nice Avatar, btw. This season is shaping up to be much better than the last couple.

    Thanks. I'll keep letting it sit and hope for the best. If the licorice taste will go away i can handle it. If not it will go to the "bad drawer" :(

    Dex is hanging in there. Still one of my top 3 shows.

    I'm confused about the fact that you are tasting licorice, there is no licorice in the Broo. :blink:

    Every now and then I have a steeped bottle. Those end up on the specials page. I do announce them right before I list them so you know what's coming.

    Wow, now to think of it - I always wanted to try the licorice flavor. Which ones could you recommend?

    Copper Creek: great out of the box, better steeped.
    Blueberry: No steeping necessary!
    Voo's Brew: great out of the box, better steeped.
    Passion Fruit: No steeping necessary!
    Cool Aid: been a couple weeks and still not getting much flavor.. :-/
    Lemonade: Light out of the box, Way better steeped.
    Rasberry Danish: just came yesterday, little light out of the box, prob needs steeping.
    Rasberry: just came yesterday, little light out of the box, prob needs steeping.
    Pear: just came yesterday, tastes AMAZING so far.
    Peach: No steeping necessary! Best Peach flavor to date!!
    Twisted: Light out of the box, Way better steeped.

    For the folks at CC- how about selling already steeped juices? kind of like a fine, aged wine? i'd be willing to pay a little more for say a House Blend circa July 2011 than a brand new one.. :)

    FlyingV does sometimes put up steeped juice. She'll announce it in the info thread and it's first come, first served. Better get there before James or me. :D

    Sometimes I think it can taste similar to licorice!

    I find that once flavors are mixed they mimic other flavors.For instance a juice that I mix from other cc juices two different flavors that are pronounced...When I mix ccccc,cherry,vanilla,and cake I get a delicious chocolate covered cherry.If I up the amount of cccccc in that same mixture.I have a wonderful smoky cherry pipe tobacco without any tobacco being in it.

    I just received my first order of Voo's Broo with a born on date of 5/2/2013. I tried it and I get mostly a leathery flavor out of it. My wife says she can taste black licorice. I will let this one steep for a month and try again.

    My first order of House was born on 10/08/2012. I bought it in February on special! When it first came in I tried it on a HH 357 and thought it was meh. I started vaping it again 2 weeks ago on an RBA (ERA) and it's been amazing. I had to order another 30 ml. I just tried the fresh House Blend w/ a born on date of 5/2/2013 and it definitely is not as good as my 2012 batch. It is good but the 2012 batch definitely has some more complexity. My next CC order will be a 120 ml of house.

    Try an Aero from Avidvaper.com. Same place you got the HH.357, but half the price. I very much dislike HH.357 atties. These, although they're out of stock: AERO 510 Bridgeless Atomizer - Avid Vaper. Another great attie from Avid is Cisco: LR510 Low Resistance Atomizer 1.8 ohm (Cisco Spec) - Avid Vaper

    Another good one is the Vapage AMG Hybrid from Vapage.com $14 for a pack of 2. Here: *******************************************************************

    Seriously, these are the best atties on the market, besides RBAs. But I f'ing hate RBAs.

    The leathery taste will go away after about 2 or 3 weeks.

    Not so sure about licorice in Voo's Broo but definitely tasted lots of black pepper and Cake. After 29 days of steeping/aging/marinating pepper and cake taste are gone replaced with awesomeness. Give the Broo a month to steep.
