NamberJuice review

NamberJuice is an e-liquid manufacturer/retailer that was created by GrimmGreen and TheVapeBabe. Considering it’s lineage you would expect the products to be among the best of the best in the industry and you would be right. I have wanted to try NamberJuice for a long time but I have so many juices laying around that it’s hard to justify actually ordering anything. Last week I decided that I needed to go ahead and make an order so I could write this review.

NamberJuice runs $10/15ml which is cheaper than FuzionVapor and puts it squarely into a great cost/value range. I am enjoying this juice and I love what NamberJuice is doing for our industry. Your money is well spent at Nick and Amber’s juice boutique and rest assured that buying from NamberJuice enables them to help fight for Vaping Rights.

Coval Vapes Crunchberry

capn_crunch1

Coval’s description of this juice is simply “Tastes just like the cereal!” which while accurate could use a bit of expansion.

According to capncrunch.com You can describe Crunch Berry cereal as a combination of sweetened corn and oat biscuits with delicious fruit flavored berry shapes.

I really enjoyed this flavor and it helps that Coval tends to balance their juices very well.

For me this is a morning/desert vape, I did vape it all day for 1 day and it was just a bit much.

 

Fuzion Vapor Shipping Catastrophe

First off let me say that lots of companies are packaging E-Liquid in the same method as Fuzion Vapor. The only reason that I am singling them out is because I have wanted to write about this problem for a long time and they were unlucky enough to be the vendor who’s items were damaged on the way to me. I receive shipments constantly and this is only the second time that I have received a package drenched in E-Liquid.

we careOk so Catastrophe is a bit dramatic…

I ordered a couple of selections from Fuzion Vapors Prime E-Liquids for a coming review and two bottles of Krankberry to keep the wife happy. I will get to that review at a later time but lets talk about the issue at hand. Today I received my order from Fuzion Vapor which contains 4x 30ml bottles. Unfortunately during handling by the USPS one of the bottles was decapitated which emptied the entire contents of the 30ml bottle of Krankberry both inside my package and presumably all over the floor of the postal services sorting center.

The USPS was kind enough to insert my package into a plastic bag with a note explaining that the item was damaged during handling. Honestly I am surprised that I received the shipment at all considering the fact that roughly 25ml of E-Liquid with nicotine is missing and must have contaminated not only the working environment for their employees but other customers packages. From what I can tell they didn’t even open my package in order to determine what spilled which is kind of concerning considering that there is nicotine in this E-Liquid.

Are we being responsible by shipping E-Liquid in soft packages that can easily be damaged in this way? If we don’t want regulators to come march into this industry applying crippling standards to the manufacturing and shipment of E-Liquid this needs to change. I do think we need some regulation but if we don’t want over-regulation then we need to start policing ourselves in order to give them less of an opportunity to point fingers at all of the bad things we are doing as an industry.

Some vendors ship in USPS flat rate boxes with the contents in a water tight ziplock bag and I feel like this is an appropriate amount of safeguard for E-Liquids. Not only does this prevent potential issues like the one that I have experienced it allows our industry to tout the safeguards that they put in place in order to protect the public.

I will contact Fuzion Vapor about this particular incident and report back with the results.

p.s. Strawberry in yo’ soul is amazing

Coval Vapes Review

All flavors were evaluated on a 28g single nano coil (1.3 ohms) on organic cotton bed in an atomic RDA 11.4 – 12 watts

Kiwi Marsh

Very kiwi smell upon opening the bottle. A sweeter taste than Frankenvape where kiwi settles on your tongue during the inhale and while the marshmallow is left lingering in your nostrils on the exhale. A very good combination of flavors but very sharp, I think I may need to let it steep a little while. Very good vapor production as well.

7/10

 

Teddy Graham

Smells just like a bag of teddy grahams. It’s incredible how spot on the smell is. The throat hit is somewhat stronger than the Kiwi Marsh although I’m not sure why. I’m not getting very much flavor on the inhale but I get a faint cinnamon flavor on the exhale mostly through the nose. The aftertaste is very pleasing, makes me want to grab a bag of teddy grahams!

6.5/10

 

PBB Cream

I’m smelling a faint peanut butter from the bottle and something else, I can’t quite put my finger on…maybe a generic cookie smell? I have to say that personally I am not a big fan of this flavor. It is probably just me, but I am getting a very bland peanut butter cookie flavor out of it and am not enjoying it much at all. Perhaps this flavor is just not for me.

3/10

 

Churro

OMG CINNAMON ROLL. This is amazing. If you are a fan of Mt. Baker Vapors Cinnamon Roll and would like a little more icing, you must try this. The inhale and exhale are bursting with the flavor of a warm cinnamon roll. Excellent balance of cinnamon roll and icing. Hands down the best I have tried.

10/10

 

Chocolate Donut

I’m so amazed at how well they match the smell of a chocolate donut. The inhale is not very satisfying, not bad, but not fulfilling or flavorful in my opinion. The exhale is a very deep but not strong dark chocolate flavor, I’m not getting too much donut out of it. Very smooth, I will say that. The aftertaste is great, the chocolate lingers around more on my tongue than my nose. I don’t think I could vape it all day though.

6/10

 

Peach Cobbler

Again with the smells. The peach cobbler is so pronounced and well defined in the smell of the juice. The throat hit is much stronger in this, even more so than the teddy graham. Getting a very good strong peach flavor on the inhale and exhale. I am also getting a slight buttery cinnamon flavor on the exhale, but peach dominates the flavor experience in this juice. It would be a good after dinner dripping juice. I think I am going to let this one steep a little while and try again to see if I can get any extra flavors out of it. As for now, if you are looking for a strong peach flavor, I would recommend this one.

7/10

 

Sunday

This flavor smells like a minty sprite. The inhale is very full and smooth. Fruity, but not so much that it overpowers it. The exhale consists of a minty and cool vape that compliments the initial fruit flavors from the inhale. I think I would like to drip maybe 3 drops of this and 1 drop of chocolate donut to bring somewhat of a peppermint patty flavor to my taste buds. Very relaxing and consuming vape, Sunday would be a perfect day to vape this flavor. I have tried many minty/menthol flavors and this is by far the best in my opinion!

8.5/10

 

Napalm

I cannot even begin to describe the smell of this juice. It is such a rich caramel apple pie essence with a hint of vanilla. The inhale is a full bodied apple pie with the crust and everything, just flat out. I don’t really get much of the vanilla and caramel until the exhale which is fantastic. On the exhale, the caramel is the dominating flavor with just the right amount of vanilla to tie everything together. This juice is an experience and very complex.  It is a fantastic vape!

10/10

 

Apple Pie

I’m not quite getting and apple pie flavor from this. Definitely a good defined apple flavor and some very light hints of cinnamon with something else going on, but I can’t figure it out.  The inhale is apple. The exhale is apple. It is not a bad flavor by any means, it was just not what I was expecting. But if you are looking for an apple pie flavor, I am going to have to recommend Napalm.

5/10

 

Strawberry Creamcake

Another amazing smell straight out of the bottle. The strawberry is very pronounced and creamy notes highlight the inhale. The exhale is fantastic, the cream blends with the strawberry and creates an intense flavor that is easily an all-day vape. This juice is so rich and fulfilling. I can’t believe something can taste so good! This will definitely be showing up in my next batch from Coval Vapes!

Miss White

I went out on a whim and decided to try a new juice that was given to me by a friend. It came from Craft Vapery and as busy as my days and nights usually are I did not even realize a company like this was around until I saw everything that came in the packet.

Over the years I have become a hardcore vaper. I will try just about anything once and I am known to kill all sorts of carts. If you give me something to test out I can more than likely break it in the most uncommon way. I am also an extremely picky critic of juices.  After smoking traditional cigarettes for almost twenty years I was a “one pack a day” smoker. I vape pretty much the same way and I am sure if you compare me to my better half I vape twice as much as he does in a 24 hour time span so I need a juice that can keep up with me otherwise it is just a waste of money.
