REVIEWS REVIEW BY PEACHES ATKINSON VIR SAF JPN VG/PG ratio: 70/30 Additional sweetener: Moderate Throat hit: Mild VG/PG ratio: 70/30 Additional sweetener: Moderate Throat hit: Mild VG/PG ratio: 70/30 Additional sweetener: Moderate Throat hit: Mild VIR is a delicate blend of sweet tobacco leaf and rich, crumbly biscuit. Upon opening the bottle, a strong aroma of tobacco emanated from it. It did smell quite potent; however, I was very eager to try it. As I just mentioned, there was an obvious tone of smooth and sweet tobacco on the inhale. To me, it tasted fairly similar to a light rolling tobacco, both decadent and woody. There were no smoky elements to this e-liquid, which will make it particularly appealing to those who enjoy a soft tobacco rather than a harsh, slightly more realistic burning cigarette flavour. The smoothness of the tobacco is met with a more subtle biscuit base upon exhalation. I felt that the biscuit not only complemented the tobacco but also drew all of the separate flavours together. It had a very mild throat hit and was quite sweet, so it was very easy to vape. SAF is a uniquely refreshing watermelon ice flavour. I say ‘uniquely’ because I had yet to come across a cool watermelon flavour that doesn't present itself as being either too artificial or too icy, until now. SAF has a juicy, bubblegum feel to it, and you can really notice it when you inhale. The watermelon is extremely well-executed and has a very full-bodied flavour that will satisfy even the fussiest of vapers. The cooling agent sets in just as you begin to exhale, but this adds to the overall flavour and doesn't overpower or mask the watermelon whatsoever. I could really appreciate the extremely refreshing nature of this e-liquid, and its ability to not become sickly nor boring, and for this reason, SAF will my ideal summertime vape. JPN is a wondrously succulent grape chewy candy flavoured e-liquid, that offers vapers a revitalising and moreish experience. Just after opening the bottle, a fragrant and luscious smell made its way to my nostrils. If smelling this liquid was good, vaping it was nothing short of amazing. The first inhale offered an intensely mouth-watering candied grape, with an ever so slight cooling aspect hidden in there to accentuate the flavours. When you exhale, the two main flavour groups combine and thus results in a straightforward, uncomplicated yet well- executed grape chew, that carries through to a pleasant aftertaste. As a 70VG e-liquid, you can expect decent cloud production, especially on sub-ohm set-ups. LAX LDN VG/PG ratio: 70/30 Additional sweetener: Moderate Throat hit: Mild VG/PG ratio: 70/30 Additional sweetener: Moderate Throat hit: Mild If you like slightly sour e-liquids, you should definitely check out this installation from Vape Airways. LAX is a ripe and tangy Valencia orange and tastes as if it has just been picked fresh off of a tree. It offers a refined and realistic flavour, rather than a typical orange soda or orange candy flavoured e-liquid. It is realistic in many aspects, including the evolving flavour you experience when vaping this e-liquid. Initially, as you are inhaling, you will notice a sour yet oddly flavourless zing, but as soon as you breathe out, a more discernible, sweet and juicy orange flesh will meet your taste buds. Probably my favourite thing about this e-liquid would have to be its pure simplicity. There are no unnecessary complications in terms of flavours. Probably the sweetest liquid in this line, LDN is a rich and decadent strawberry tart. It has a very prominent strawberry sauce flavour to it, with only a touch of pastry biscuit. The notes of strawberry are very evident when inhaling the vapour, as well as exhaling. However, the other flavours come across as a bit more muted. There is a steady undertone of a soft cream that balances out any sourness projected by the strawberry, and this is followed by a crumbly tart base that adds a semi-savoury edge to the sophisticated and sweet overtones. My favourite things about vaping this e-liquid would be the smooth and well-rounded clouds on exhaling and the full- tasting strawberry flavour elements. 184 | VM22
