Vapor Life Lounge: Two New Juices – Dr. Pepper and Egg Nog

Picked up two new juices on my stop at Vapor Life Lounge in Sandy Springs a couple weeks ago while I was out getting lunch before work. These two reviews will be straight forward, as there isn’t a whole lot to explain. Below are the findings.

 

Juice: Dr. Pepper

Vendor/Maker: Vapor Life Lounge – http://vaporlifelounge.com/

Info: 50/50 PG/VG – 12mg nic

Pricing: $8 for 10mL

First off, I’ll let it be known that in the past couple years, I’ve been through numerous soda inspired flavors, and have been kind of turned away by inaccurate attempts by other juice makers. Finally I’ve happen to run across one that’s dead on. VLL’s Dr. Pepper is about as close as I think you could come in terms of flavor, without actually going to the drink machine.

On to vaping. I’ve only used the Kanger Aerotank so far, and don’t have much of a reason to try out any other delivery mediums. I made my purchase with the intent of using some bottom coil devices that I haven’t touched in a while, hence the 50/50 mix. The initial inhale of VLL’s Dr. Pepper is excellent, and the flavors a re very pronounced. The familiar cherry is the first, and most prominent aspect that you’ll notice, and stays consistent throughout the vape. The exhale on this juice is a shining moment in VLL - DrPeppermy opinion. Flavor becomes very full bodied, and I can honestly say the aftertaste is the best part. This may sound weird, but it almost has a lightly carbonated type of effect at the exhale. Aftertaste here will make you think you just drank some of it’s beverage counterpart.

I’ve gotten some decent, low-medium vapor production, and wasn’t expecting clouds with the higher PG content, but flavor here certainly makes up for the light throat hit. 8.5 watts on 2 ohm coils has left me in a happy place.

This is a juice that I would definitely purchase again, and have already let a couple soda loving vaper friends know that they’d be very happy with this juice. If you like Dr. Pepper, you can’t go wrong here.

 

 

Juice: Egg Nog

Vendor/Maker: Vapor Life Lounge – http://vaporlifelounge.com/

Info: 50/50 PG/VG – 12mg nic

Pricing: $8 for 10mL

I’ve always been a big fan of egg nog, with or without alcohol. Being that we’re in the midst of the holiday season, I felt it was only appropriate to try this one out.

When I first made my purchase in the store, it was obvious this juice had just been prepared recently, as it was totally clear in coloration, and didn’t give off a totally mixed scent. Five days of steeping later, and I was left with a light pink color, and a much more balanced initial smell to the mix that was definitely egg nog.

Vape time: Filled an iClear30B and was pleasantly surprised, but with a couple reservations. The flavor is very well done, and it’s obvious you’re vaping an egg nog themed juice. The initial hit was fairly light, with not a lot of throat hit, but still packs a good amount of flavor. I pretty much expected a lighter draw, as I ordered a 50/50 mix for use in polycarb tanks, but have found myself wishing for more of a milk/creamy undertone that comes along with the beverage that we know and love. On the exhale,VLL - EggNog the nutmeg finish is very apparent, and at times is slightly overpowering to the juice as a whole. The flavor is definitely there, but this is one juice that would definitely benefit from a stronger creamy base, which is the only real downside.

As far as vapor production and performance goes, I’ve gotten some nice medium-sized clouds on my usual tank run, sticking mostly with the iClear30B at 2.1 ohms, and vaping at 8-9 watts on a 134 Mini. At 9.5 watts and above, the flavor wasn’t so apparent, but no burnt taste. Tank performance has been very consistent from Kanger and Innokin bottom coil delivery mediums.

Overall, I’m satisfied, but there’s still more to be desired. The flavor is good, but needs a bit of restructuring on it’s overall mix, preferably with a heavier base. Would I buy it again? With a bit of work, yes.

Cyber Liquids: Vader

Juice: Vader

Vendor/Maker: Cyber Liquids – http://www.cosmicfogvapors.com/

Info: 30/70 PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: $11.99 15mL

Good day, fellow vapers! It’s been a while since the last juice review, and I’ve got a few new ones over the last couple weeks that I’ve really enjoyed. Today I have Cyber Liquid’s Vader, which was recommended to me by a couple friends at Zen Vapers earlier this month. I had been in the market for a new cookie/cake inspired flavor, and this definitely hit the spot.

My past experiences with Cyber Liquids have been excellent to say the least, and this juice certainly doesn’t disappoint. Described on Cyber Liquid’s website, Vader is listed as cookie dough with a vanilla custard base, with hints of milk, maple and hazelnut. Sounds delicious, and smells that way too. On opening the bottle, you’ll get a definite cookie dough with maple scent, which is accurate with the flavor description online.

On to vaping: Vader delivers a great medium-bodied vape, with a nice throat hit, giving a nod to the higher VG mix ratio. The initial flavor I get is a heavier vanilla with hazelnut undertones, followed by an excellent maple and cookie blend. The milk aspect really helps give an overall creamy taste, and is mixed in just the right amount, making the cookie dough dead-on with flavor recreation. The aftertaste also really shines here, and is where I’m noticing the maple vader bottleflavor kick in. It’s almost like you’ve just vaped cookie dough, with a maple syrup finish. This is one aftertaste that has had me chain vaping on a pretty frequent basis, and I still haven’t been able to put this one down. Vader has definitely earned a solid all-day vape in my book, and goes great with anything, especially after breakfast, and with coffee.

Vapor production has been great as well, and I was a little hesitant at first to try this juice out with my usual bottom coil configurations, as the VG ratio is much higher, at 70%. Surprisingly though, I’ve gotten great results on the iClear 30B, as well as the X1 (since I purchased an iTaste 134 mini), with both a dual coil and quad coil setup. Medium-sized, thick clouds have been the norm here, with very little, to no clogging at all, which was surprising for how thick this juice is. With the higher VG mix, I decided to try out my Octopus RDA as well ,and got great results. Thicker clouds of vapor, and even stronger flavor, which was to be expected with quad wrapped silica wicks. I let Vader steep for just a few days, and the flavors have made a slightly noticeable improvement, and I don’t think it could get much better.

Would I buy this again? Yes, definitely. Once again, I’ve been very pleased with yet another Cyber Liquid’s creation, and they continue to impress with quality. I’d recommend this one to all vapers, and I’m sure my bottle will be empty soon enough.

Cosmic Fog: Cola Gummy

Juice: Cola Gummy

Vendor/Maker: Cosmic Fog – http://www.cosmicfogvapors.com/

Info: ??/?? PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: Varies for 15mL

Evening vapers. Have another juice that I received recently that I felt was worth sharing. Today’s juice is a nice adaptation of a favorite sweet of mine. This will be a shorter review, as Cola Gummy from Cosmic Fog needs no real description here, so on to the juice itself.

Recently, I’ve been on a flavor nostalgia kick, and this is no exception. I picked up my bottle of Cola Gummy from a local brick and mortar store, and decided to purchase before even trying a sample, based on the childhood reminiscing factor alone. As soon as I opened the bottle, the sweet gummy scent was very apparent, so I went ahead and filled a BCC Mega tank. On inhale, you’re greeted with a medium-bodied vape that carries a surprisingly nice throat hit. My initial reaction on inhale was confirmed, with the majority of the gummy aspect being pretty sweet, and almost to the point of slightly too sweet, but still on par with flavor re-creation. Lots of gummy flavors I’ve had in the past were entirely too harsh on the candy side, and almost made me feel sick. This isn’t the case here, but I will say that chain-vaping isn’t the greatest, as it has kind of worn on me with the sweetness factor alone. The cola flavor is very apparent as soon as you Cola Gummy Bottleexhale, and is very tastefully done. This is the winning factor here in the first Cosmic Fog juice I’ve tried out, and I don’t think the cola aspect could be much better, but overall I’d like a bit less of the gummy, and more cola. May just be my personal preference though, as I’m not a huge fan of very sweet juices. None the less, this is a solid flavor combination.

Vapor production has been nice as well, giving medium sized clouds on my usual SVD with 1.8 ohm coils, and voltage between 3.8 – 4.0 volts. This is yet another juice that has played very nicely with the BCC Mega, and this tank has definitely become one of my favorite go-to along the consumer line of easy to use delivery mediums.

For steeping, it’s been about 5 days, and flavoring has balanced out bit more than when I first purchased. Upon first trying the juice out of the bottle, it carried too much of the candy sweetness for my personal preference, but has since blended nicely. Once again though, I still think a bit more cola flavor would benefit here.

Overall, this was a pleasant juice to try out, and as such, I plan to purchase more of Cosmic Fog’s juices in the future. If you’re looking for just one more bit of nostalgia in your vaping day, this would be a good choice. I’ll add here that it looks like Cosmic Fog sells in bulk to retailers, as their website has descriptions, but no option for single purchase ordering.

Cyber Liquids: Krunch Berries

Juice: Krunch Berries

Vendor/Maker: Cyber Liquids – http://www.cyberliquids.com/

Info: ??/?? PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: $11.99 for 15mL

Back again and continuing the cereal theme, along comes Krunch Berries from our friends at Cyber Liquids. The last juice; Apple Jax, was a great success, and I’ve been equally happy with this flavor as well. It probably goes without saying, but the Cap’n is definitely in the building with this juice.

Another childhood favorite that Cyber Liquids has done a phenomenal job of recreating, Krunch Berries nails down that familiar flavor we came to know and love. Vape time: Krunch Berries has a lighter bodied hit than the last cereal themed juice I tried out, but still packs an enormous amount of flavor. Strawberry is king (or captain) here, and it’s flavor is on point, being a partial mix of natural and artificial strawberry flavor. In the past, I’ve had many juices that went overboard on the sweetness with similar candy and fruit styled juices, but that’s not the case here. As far as it’s similarity to it’s cereal counterpart, it couldn’t be any more accurate. The strawberry flavor stays consistent throughout the entire vape, from inhale to exhale, and leaves a very pleasant aftertaste. Even though its a lighter inhale and throat hit, there is still a nice, light cream undertone, giving a nod to the milk aspect found in my last review of Cyber Liquid’s Krunch Berries BottleApple Jax. I also feel that this was just the right amount of milky addition, as it doesn’t take anything away from the initial strawberry flavor, but rather compliments it very well. This is another one of the few juices that has such a great aftertaste that you’ll be chain vaping after opening the bottle.

Vapor production of Krunch Berries is solid, given it’s lighter initial hit. I chose to go with an AnyVape BCC Mega tank, with 2.5ohm coils, and voltage ranging from 4 – 4.4 volts on my SVD. I’m still pleasantly surprised with the amount of vapor produced, once again getting some nice medium-sized clouds consistently with each hit. This juice played very nicely with the BCC Mega, and I’ve had no reason to vary from my current setup. I’d like to add here, that each one of Cyber Liquids juices that I’ve tried have performed well with any delivery medium that I’ve tried out. Its been very nice to have consistency across the board.

As far as steeping goes, Krunch Berries went through the same process as Apple Jax with about 10 days of steeping. It’s taken me a bit longer to get around to the review, so a bit of change has come way as far as color goes. When the bottle first arrived, it was very light yellow, and over the past couple weeks, has morphed to a much darker yellow in coloration, with thickness staying the same. Flavor itself had a slightly noticeable improvement after the initial period of steeping, with the cream aspect becoming a bit more prominent overall.

This is one more juice from Cyber Liquids that I highly recommend. I haven’t found a downside yet, and the picture probably sells itself. The tank I started out with has seen the entire bottle go through it’s entirety, and overall, this was another great juice to try out. If you get a chance, definitely give Krunch Berries a try, especially for the nostalgia factor alone.

Cyber Liquids: Apple Jax

Juice: Apple Jax

Vendor/Maker: Cyber Liquids – http://www.cyberliquids.com/

Info: ??/?? PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: $11.99 for 15mL

Good day, vapers. Had a recent order from Cyber Liquids that I’ve been very happy with, and am pleased to share. Decided to go with a cereal theme on my latest juice order because, why not? Seems like an interesting take on some old favorites. Today’s juice from Cyber Liquids is titled Apple Jax, and needs no explanation as to why.

Many years back, this juice’s real life counterpart was a favored breakfast of mine, and I’m very happy to say that Cyber Liquids has done a great job of recreating a familiar favorite. On to vaping: Starting off, Apple Jax has a nice, medium-full bodied hit, which carries a majority of the apple flavor. The apple itself tastes like a nice mix of candy and fruit styled flavoring, and has just the right amount of sweetness. The apple itself stays apple jax bottleconsistent throughout, and makes a great base flavor. The cinnamon aspect is where Apple Jax absolutely shines. This is also a nice mix of artificial and natural cinnamon flavor, and is hands-down dead on with it’s cereal counterpart. Adding to the phenomenal cinnamon, I’m noticing a bit of a creamy undertone, giving a nice addition of a milk and almost toast flavor on exhale. The aftertaste is excellent as well, and really leaves a nice lingering creamy cinnamon flavor.

Vapor production with Apple Jax has been surprisingly solid as well. I’m getting some nice clouds with an iClear30B at 3.8v on 1.8 ohm coils. This has been the first, and only delivery medium I’ve tried out, as I haven’t found a good reason to vary from the current setup.

I’ve let Apple Jax steep for about 10 days, and it’s definitely helped out the juice a bit. Coloration has darkened, to a medium-brown, almost caramel apple color, and a slight bit of thickness has been added as well.

I would highly recommend ordering a bottle of Apple Jax. This juice has been an absolute pleasure to vape, and a very nice surprise in terms of what I was expecting. This is honestly the quickest I’ve gone through a bottle in the past couple years, and it was more than worth it.

Smoke Anywhere For Pennys: Dream Nectar

Juice: Dream Nectar

Vendor/Maker: Smoke Anywhere For Pennys – http://www.smokeanywhereforpennys.com

Info: 50/50 PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: $5.95 for 10mL

Good afternoon fellow vapers. I’ve recently received a new batch of juice, and have some great flavors to share. Today’s review is of a hookah themed juice, titled Dream Nectar from Smoke Anywhere for Pennys.

I used to be a big fan of attending hookah bars in years past, but since the progressive kicking of all things tobacco, I’ve since steered pretty much clear of the social hose passing, even if it isn’t tobacco based in some areas of the US. Never the less, the flavors I remember from years ago will probably always be a fond memory.

On SAFP’s website, Dream Nectar has no flavor description, or hint at all as to it’s base. This ended up being a very pleasant surprise. The initial inhale brings a great mix of flavors, and I’m sure that I probably won’t be able to point them all out. First off, I notice a medium bodied citrus flavor, somewhere between orange and mango, that makes up the base of the juice. Next along, and blending very nicely, is a light banana. This banana flavor lies between candy and fruit, and after a fair amount of thought, I’d have to say it’s closer to the the candy, banana Runts. On exhale, and it may just be the way the first couple ingredients blended, but it tastes just like cantaloupe, and leaves a great aftertaste. Dream Nectar BottleHonestly, this is one of the most well-mixed juices I’ve tried, and some of the most trouble I’ve ever had pinpointing flavors. I generally like to know what I’m getting in to before purchasing, but this was a great random selection. As far as the hookah inspired theme goes, Penny’s nailed it. This is by far one of the best adaptations I’ve tried to date.

In terms of vapor production and delivery mediums, I’ve only tried one bottom coil tank, which I also ordered from SAFP’s site as well. The Smok PBC V1 tank, being pretty basic as far as tanks go, has performed very well at 3.8v on 1.8ohm coils. Vapor production has been fantastic as well, with medium-bodied clouds.

In conclusion, I’d highly recommend trying out Dream Nectar. It’s a very pleasant vape with lots of flavor, and will have you coming back for more.

Vaperite: Dragon Slayer

Juice: Dragon Slayer

Vendor/Maker: Vaperite – http://www.vaperite.com

Info: 50/50 PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: $9.99 for 15mL

Good evening vapers.  This will be more of just an honorable mention type of quick review.  On a recent trip to my local Vaperite store to purchase some of Sirius’ juices for my previous reviews, I came across a new blend titled Dragon Slayer, which consists of berry flavors throughout.  Pomegranate, dragonfruit, and acai berry make up this new Dragon Slayer juice.

Straight to the point, this is a cool and light vape, contrary to what you may think just from hearing it’s title.  The mix of berry flavors here is very well done, and all aspects blend nicely together.  The initial hit brings in the majority of the dragonfruit and pomegranate flavors, which hold pretty constant through exhale in my experience.  I’ve noticed most of the acai berry flavoringDragon Slayer Bottle just after exhale, with a bit of an almost dark raspberry making an appearance in aftertaste.  The aftertaste is just a bit sweet, but not overpowering.

So far, I’ve only used one delivery medium with Dragon Slayer, and that’s been an eLeaf iJust tank.  I’ve gotten some consistently good results, with a nice amount of vapor produced at 3.8 – 4.1 volts on 1.8 ohm coils.  I haven’t had a great opportunity for steeping, but the 5 or so days that did happen, helped a slight bit in terms of flavor.

Overall, I enjoyed this bottle of Dragon Slayer, although I ran through it quickly.  It was familiar ground, as this juice was slightly different from many others I’ve sampled from other vendors, but still worth a mention none the less.

Sirius Vapors: Blueberry Coffee Cake

Juice: Blueberry Coffee Cake

Vendor/Maker: Sirius Vapors – http://www.siriusvapors.com/

Info: ??/?? PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: Varies for 15mL

After a bit of a hiatus, and a couple more displeasing juices, I’ve decided to give bottle number two out of three from Sirius Vapors a shot. Let me just start by saying that Blueberry Coffee Cake has proven to be much more pleasing than my last experience. This review will be rather short and straight-forward.

Initially, the bulk of the cake flavored is carried on the inhale, and quickly followed by the strong blueberry flavor. The flavoring here is mixed well, but I almost feel that the cake aspect is lacking a bit. Typically, if it’s a bread, or bakery inspired/themed juice, I really having a heavier cream or cake flavor as the predominant base. What’s more forgiving in this case, is how well the blueberry flavoring is done, even if it is a bit overpowering. The blueberry flavor itself has a nice, slightly sweet taste on its finish, while still retaining an overall solid fruit flavor. It’s worth noting here as well, that the vape itself is a bit cooler, and that may be because of the mild cake base.

Once again, and on par with the last juice from Sirius, steeping is a must. My usual two weeks was the beginning of the process in this case. It’s been a little over a month of steeping now, and Blueberry Coffee Cake has reached its prime, with a definite change in coloration, and a bit of an increase in thickness. Steeping has definitely helped out with flavor in a big way. The cake aspect was almost non-existent when first trying this juice out of the package, but has since come through to what I’m guessing is the full potential.Bb Coffee Cake Bottle

Delivery medium wise, this has been an eerily similar story to my last. With tanks, I received poor results with a BCC Mega, Puritank, and Vivi Nova V3. I didn’t even bother with drippers here, as I was already frustrated and didn’t want to go through another hour of different coil configurations. Once again, the AeroTank has prevailed. For some reason, the wide open airflow is the only way I’ve gotten any decent results on Sirius’ juices. This was odd to me once again, as Blueberry Coffee Cake wasn’t listed under Sirius’ “Max VG” line, so I assumed a roughly 50/50 mix, and better performance in tanks. Either way, this juice hasn’t been a great friend to bottom coils.

In conclusion, this was the second juice I’ve tried from Sirius Vapors, and this was surprisingly pleasant, especially after my last experience. I do recommend Blueberry Coffee Cake, but with some reservation, especially after all the delivery mediums I’ve ran through in testing. I’ll be back with one final review of Sirius juices within the week, along with some new stuff from new vendors.

Sirius Vapors – Arnold Palmer

 

Juice: Arnold Palmer

Vendor/Maker: Sirius Vapors – http://www.siriusvapors.com/

Info: ??/?? PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: Varies for 15mL

Greetings vapers. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on any good juice finds, and I’m slightly disappointed to say that its mostly because I’ve received a number of sub-par, to downright travesties over the past few weeks, with not a whole lot worth mentioning (and I don’t ever want to turn someone off from a juice just because of one bad experience). However, I finally got one that has stood out as unique, and familiar to it’s real life counterpart beverage, although with some setbacks. Arnold Palmer, from Sirius Vapors brings in that familiar sweet tea and lemonade mix that is a staple in southern beverages.

The initial inhale carries the bulk of the sweet tea aspect, which is honestly overpowering in most all delivery mediums I’ve tried out. The flavor is dead on though, which is it’s one redeeming quality. In most of the bottom coil and commonly used tank setups, it would occasionally almost be to the point of harsh, especially when chain vaping. The lemonade flavor layers very well, and makes it’s entrance at the end of inhale. Surprisingly, this the best par of the juice in my opinion, as the initial sweet tea may turn some vapers off with how heavy it hits.Sirius Arnold Palmer Bottle

I have to say here that one month of steeping has done the most good for this juice. When I first received the bottle, and all the way to my usual two week steeping period, it was still just overly harsh, and never really gave a smooth vape until after almost three weeks of steeping. Coloration darkened only slightly, and thickness remained about the same.

As far as delivery mediums goes, this was the biggest disappointment. I burned through some wicks and coils in the iClear30, T3S, AnyVape BCC Mega, iClear30b, Vivi Nova v3 and v8, Dbox Puritank, and absolutely none of them played well. This was an adventure, to say the least. Here’s the odd part: Even my drippers weren’t a fan of this juice. The Nimbus and Igo-W both just couldn’t get much vapor going at all, regardless of wrap configurations, and mesh on the RSST was a definite no from the beginning. The only good results I received came from a Kanger AeroTank. Having an almost wide-open airflow seemed to produce some decent clouds and flavor, while finally not being overly harsh.

In conclusion, I’m not sure if I can recommend this juice without serious hesitation. While it’s obvious the idea and flavors are there, I believe this one needs to go back to the lab for a serious re-mixing/structuring. After checking out Sirius’ website, they apparently only do large quantity wholesale to stores, and don’t have much information on each juice available. Apparently, this one is only in “Max VG Premium”…..so 100% VG? Maybe? I’m still not sure, as there is no way this was a strictly VG juice. Otherwise, the drippers would’ve loved it.

Sirius sells their juices at a number of online and brick and mortar retailers, so you’re on your own if you want to hunt their stuff down. I may try another one of their juices in the future, but for now, I’m holding off. Also, no more only glowing reviews from me (unless well deserved, of course).  After the mass amount of money dropped into supplies and juices lately, I’ve had a realization that I’ve been extremely lucky over the past 4-6 months or so with my orders. Most of them have come from solid recommendations from you, the reader vaper!

Vaper Venue: Monkey Cream

Juice: Monkey Cream

Vendor/Maker: Vaper Venue – http://www.vapervenue.com/

Info: 30/70 PG/VG – 18mg nic

Pricing: $12 for 15mL (.80/mL)

Today I have another juice from Vaper Venue to round out my recent order, and a very tasty one at that. Monkey Cream is described as vaping your favorite Krispy Kreme donut. I have a bit of a reservation when recommending this juice, however, and I’ll explain why near the end of review.

To start off, the inhale of Monkey Cream is heavy, and carries a good majority of the donut flavor, which becomes very noticeable as soon as you exhale. The glazed donut flavor, to me, tastes more like a cake donut, being that it is a very heavy cake/bakery styled flavor, but still has that sweet glazed finish. On exhale, the glazed aspect of the donut really shines, and gives a well-rounded flavor overall. This is about as good of an example as I’ve found in blending a heavy base flavor with a sweet aftertouch. Post-exhale, the glazed donut flavor lingers around for quite some time, and is probably my favorite aspect of the juice.

When I first received my order a couple weeks ago, I let my usual steeping process begin. Initially, Monkey Cream had a powerful butterscotch scent, and after about 10 days of steeping, it’s got a bit more of a mellow aroma, and slight hints of vanilla. The juice itself has maintained consistency, which was expected at a 30/70 PG/VG mix, so it was already quite thick. I’ve noticed a trend over the past year now with most of my orders from California being higher in VG content, and my guess is that it’s because dripping has become increasingly popular over time.

As far as delivery mediums go, I’ve gotten differing results with every device I’ve tested out. Starting off, I tried out the Aerotank, and got by far the worst results, which was almost expected, since most of my bottom coil tanks have hated bakery/cake styled juices in the past. Moved on to an RSST with a mesh wick, and had great vapor production, but little to no flavor. Lastly, the best results have come from a Kayfun Lite Tobeco clone, and surprisingly, an iClear30B. For flavor, definitely go for a Kayfun if you’ve got one convenient. A buddy of mine allowed me to try out his clone, and I didn’t want to give it back because the flavor and vapor Monkey Cream Bottleproduction was phenomenal (with ribbon wire and cotton). Currently, I’m using the iClear30B on a Cool-Fire II mod at 9 watts, and have been getting consistently good results, with great vapor production and flavor delivery. I’ll note here that I typically always remove about 1/3 of the top flavor wick, as it usually seems to help with wicking on the 30B.

Now, here’s the kicker, and I’m glad that Vaper Venue makes it known ahead of time on their site, but the caution message on Monkey Cream’s page reads: “Note: This product contains trace amounts of Diacetyl. By clicking “ADD TO CART” means that you have read and understand this side note.So yes, I was aware of this warning beforehand, and it actually got me wondering how many times this wasn’t mentioned on juices I was using years ago, when quality control and testing wasn’t as heavily emphasized in the vaping world as it is today. I’m aware of the dangers associated with diacetyl, and there are numerous vape forums and videos that detail this. Although very small trace amounts are *almost* nothing to worry about, it’s still on my mind, and why I won’t be ordering a second bottle of Monkey Cream. I really don’t want to take anything away from this juice, as it’s honestly one of the best ones I’ve had since Frankenvape, but this is one issue that I can’t seem to get around, especially after all the advances there have been in juice creation over the years. If there happens to be a day when there are no trace amounts of diacetyl in Monkey Cream, then I would happily order again. This is honestly the only issue I’ve found with this juice, and the single reservation I have when recommending to a friend.

So, there you have it. This is hands-down an absolutely delicious juice, and you’ve seen the warning. I’ll let you decide for yourself if you’d like to give Monkey Cream a try.
