REVIEWS REVIEW BY BENEDICT ‘NED’ JONES BOLT SERIES RAINBOW SPECTRUM PG/VG ratio: 30/70 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild TROPICAL WORM PG/VG ratio: 30/70 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild SOUR BELTS PG/VG ratio: 30/70 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild Straight away, an immense, fruity candy blast hit my taste buds with full force. A zesty, sherbet sweet taste was there from the get-go. Again, as with the Pineapple Passion, this e-liquid is not too complicated, and still delivers an impressive yet simple collection of flavours. On inhalation, you can really notice the more sour elements of the candy, whereas when you exhale, the sweeter, sugary notes come in to play. I found this to be a pleasant and interesting sensation, as it felt very much like actually eating the popular fruity rainbow sweets. Overall, an astounding success by One Up for creating such an enjoyable e-liquid. The typical, sour and fruity gummy worms we all know and love, but in e-liquid form. This flavour is spot on. You really can appreciate the same fruity notes that you experience when eating the gummy candy this e-liquid has set out to replicate. Throughout my time vaping on this flavour, I noticed a blend of juicy tropical fruits, such as pineapple, melon and perhaps mango. As I exhaled, a sour blast brought my taste buds back to life again and that made me want to vape it more and more. I found that this e-liquid from One Up didn’t last very long, as I enjoyed it so much, and I would certainly recommend it to fans of sweet or fruity vapes. One Up is back at it again with the delicious sour candy flavours, and this is probably my favourite one yet. A sugary, tart strawberry is most noticeable on inhalation, and is closely followed by a lip-smacking, sharp, green apple. The sour green apple added a fantastic edge to the sweeter, slightly more subtle strawberry, in a satisfying way. One would think that all of these flavours may be a little overwhelming, however I found I enjoyed the strong feel to this e-liquid. There were plenty of different sensations when it came to vaping this flavour, including making your mouth water, which is a slightly odd thing to happen when vaping, but pleasant nonetheless. Again, another incredibly easy to vape e-liquid, especially to sweet flavour fans. STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE PG/VG ratio: 30/70 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild From the second the bottle was opened, there was an instantaneous aroma of creamy and sweet strawberry. I was very impressed with the way that the strawberry was presented. It was just the right amount of sweet. The majority of cheesecake flavours tend to be rather sickly, due to their overly sweet flavour profile. This e-liquid from One Up, however, managed to retain the amazing, succulent strawberry notes, whilst incorporating a sweet and velvety cheesecake undertone. I was particularly impressed with the pure palatability offered by this e-liquid. When vaping, it never became sickly or too overwhelming but still achieved a high level of smooth flavour. 188 | VM21 GOLD SERIES PINEAPPLE PASSION PG/VG ratio: 30/70 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild A realistic and fresh blast of pineapple is the first thing you notice when you vape this e-liquid. The pineapple is very powerful in taste, making it a tremendously juicy and revitalising flavour. I initially thought that due to the e-liquid’s strong flavour, I may have gotten a little overwhelmed rather quickly when vaping Pineapple Passion. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The flavour remained strong, and continued to make my mouth water. As a flavour profile, this e-liquid is quite basic, but effective. There are no needless complications, and the pineapple on its own is enough to deliver a refreshingly smooth vape. I really enjoyed the simplicity of this e-liquid, and how easy it was to vape.
