REVIEWS VAPOUROUND JUICE REVIEWS Fresh E-liquid – Shadow bite VG/PG ratio: 80/20 Additional sweeteners: Minimal Throat hit: Mild Summer Slurps – Dark Fruits VG/PG ratio: 80/20 Additional sweeteners: Minimal Throat hit: Mild Boss Blend – RY8 PG/VG ratio: 60/40 Additional sweeteners: Minimal Throat hit: Mild Shadow bite is defined as a perfect black grape flavour, great to use as an all-day vape. This is a very exciting flavour. From the moment you open the lid you get a burst of the grape scent which engulfs the senses. This is a very light vape and is perfect to vape throughout the day. I am a huge fan of grape flavours and this one sits just right with its sweet but not too sweet taste and has a hint of a Parma violet taste hidden within the juicy grape flavours. Highly recommended to anyone who is a fruit fanatic. Dark Fruits is described as an indulgent blackberry, blackcurrant and dark fruits flavour bursting with an effervescent flavour, and it does not disappoint. There are a lot of dark fruit-based flavours about, but this one really enticed me, with its simply divine fruity flavour. Oozing with a light fresh fruit taste, I think this liquid makes for a great all-day vape. The dark fruits head the taste chart when you vape this with subtle undertones of blackcurrant and blackberries to give you a refreshing fruity flavour. RY8 is described as a vanilla tobacco flavour with hints of caramel. This flavour has a very smooth taste and texture. The tobacco flavour is just the right amount, and not overpowering to let the vanilla and caramel hints slide through. The vanilla and caramel give a rich dessert element to this liquid and these are balanced very well with the tobacco flavour. The more you vape RY8, the more hits of caramel and vanilla come through which you can taste in the back of your throat. This is a great liquid for any tobacco, or rich dessert flavour fan. Celtic Menthol VG/PG ratio: 60/40 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Moderate Blood Rush VG/PG ratio: 80/20 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild Cool Berry VG/PG ratio: 80/20 Additional sweetener: Minimal Throat hit: Mild Described as “a cure for the common cold,” Celtic Menthol hits you with ice-cold intensity. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a straight-forward, strong menthol. The description, as it turns out, is phrased perfectly. It’s a strong yet cooling throat hit that gives a good kick, which may be too much for some people but I liked it. As far as menthol flavours go, they’re not trying to split an atom. If you vape menthol, you’ll like this. If you don’t vape menthol, this is a great juice to introduce you to that cool sensation. This is described by the manufacturers as a “fruity sensation with a cool after sensation that will leave you wanting more.” This probably evokes the kind of reaction you’d give to trying the most generic flavour possible. That may not sound positive, but ultimately it’s not about how many times it has been done. It’s about how well it has been done. The simplicity of this flavour is its strong point. The fruity taste is not overpowering and that’s exactly why it works. It’s a subtle fruit number that leaves a noticeably different after-taste; providing a memorable flavour that can easily be an ADV. Celtic Vapours call this “a blend of smashing berries with a cool mint kick.” The flavour is very strong in the best possible way, smashing sums it up nicely. There’s not just a hint of berries, it’s a very strong, persistent flavour. However, the mint undertone balances it out, preventing it from becoming too strong or sickly. Available in both 80/20 VG/PG and 60/40 PG/VG ratios, Cool Berry is sure to satisfy avid vapers as well as casual vapers and would be ideal for redberry fans. 130 | THE VAPER EXPO BY KYLE BEDNALL & JOSH TYSOE
