  • are you using that with the vpg power smoke base? or did you get another base? think I read on here that there were different reccomended bases for tobacco and fruity/sugary flavours

    I got the Dirty Neutral Base 6mg (eejits were meant to send 0mg), I didn't get any flavours with it as the plan was to use it to dilute and reduce nicotine intake, I tried diluting by 15% yesterday on a small sample but unfortunately it seriously reduced vape production, kind of disappointed tbh and I don't think I'll be going ahead as planned with the stuff. I'll try again with another juice and see if it's any better.




  • www.thebestshop.eu - (all are 18mg Nic // 75% PG & 25% VG)

    Pineapple: Not enough flavour in my opinion - constantly tastes like I need to put more juice in even though it's definitely full.

    Blueberry: Really nice and refreshingly fruity. Nice big throat hit and lots of vapor.

    RY4: It's decent, and what I expected to be smoking throughout the day - but have taken to the fruity juices so much more. Great throat hit and nice aftertaste though. Tobacco, Vanilla and Caramel - nice combination.

    Red Kola: This is in my top 2 so far, excellent stuff - would love it just a little bit stronger but being a huge Red Kola fan growing up in Scotland, this stuff is really good.

    www.liberty-flights.co.uk - (all are 18mg Nic)

    USA Mix(PG): Good big tobacco taste - this is supposed to mimic Marlboro and does so reasonably well, ton of vapor and really tough smoke hit - a little too strong for me(I smoked M - Lights)

    Fruit Mix(PG): Tastes like Joly Ranchers a wee bit, but a good vape regardless. Doesn't overpower which unfortunately has that burning plasticy taste sooner than other liquids, good for something different though - I expect more frequent top ups though.

    USA & Turk Blend(VG): Camel copy, I much prefered this to USA Mix strangely enough - I felt it wasn't as overpowering and definitely would consider this as my base for maybe mixing tobacco with something else in the future.

    Grape(VG): This will be my all day vape - reeaally smooth but effective throat hit, plenty of vapor and a fabulous aftertaste. Definitely my favourite thus far.




  • Totally Wicked red label M/boro 24mg
    No real inhale flavor, big throat hit, slightly sourish on the exhale, with a very pleasent warm peppery afterglow. I found this quiet satisfying as an all day vape, and a good alternative to smoking, though it can get a little harsh and maybe a little boring after sucking on it all day, actually a bit like real cigs when you think about it. I could imagine that I'm left with smokey breath after this stuff.

    Totally Wicked red label Tobacco 18mg
    SMOOTH dark tobacco tobacco flavors going on here on both the inhale and exhale, very like a good quality dark hand rolling tobacco, leaves a nice aftertaste as well, ever so slightly bitter. Not a big hit on the throat, but this is more about smoothness. I vape this cigar style occasionally inhaling through the nose for maximum effect. Out of everything I tried so far, this one would be the one I'd be least surprised to learn actually had tobacco in it!

    I started mixing those two 50/50, filling a LR DCC and bingo found my sweet spot, more than happy to blast away on this stuff all day, though may consider dropping the nicotine a bit.

    Totally Wicked DV Menthol, 36MG
    Not to be vaped on its own! This is a mixer, and is very potent so only to be used sparingly, TW say that this is the highest concentration of menthol on the market and I have no reason to doubt them. Love it, the Kelvin scale cannot measure its coolness! I'd imagine this would make vaping my own shoe a pleasent experience!!

    I have a few more to try and will post up my opinions here when I get around to it... Particularly looking forward to the Absinthe.




  • Totally Wicked DV Tequila 18mg.
    No taste at all, vapor but I honestly can't get any taste or real throat hit. I know tequila is pretty much tasteless but I was expecting wow! this is alcohol! a hit of some kind, got nothing.

    Totally Wicked DV Habana Reserve, 18MG.
    Disgusting, to me it tastes like something that you'd scrape of the bottom of a decorative rock in a fish tank. Having said that, and doing a lot of wondering as to what they were aiming for, I think this is supposed to mimic the nose of an unlit Havana straight out of the case, kind of sour and a little damp. It's in the bin now, along with the atty, enough said.

    I ended up buying these from DA365, and agree with the comments. The only thing is that I find the flavour could be a bit stronger. The blackberry smells so tasty in the bottle, but you just don't get the full effect when it's vaped. Same goes for the pineapple.

    Though I've gotten quite used to the tobacco mint, so perhaps mint tends to have a stronger taste.

    Red Kola is great - just like cola cube sweets.

  • Dekang - Gold and Silver 18mg VG from the Bestshop - this would be a good one for anyone trying to quit analogues;

    Smells like Worcester sauce past it's sell by date in the bottle but tastes very nice when vaped, not too dissimilar from analogues at all. The pure VG liquid doesn't have a trace of sweetness and gives you HUGE amounts of vapour. 8/10




  • Totally Wickeds-Decadent Vapour Premier Range: Absinthe, 18MG [10/10]
    Good vapor production, wonderful anise flavor on the inhale and exhale, leaves a beautiful warm lingering spicy aniseed/peppermint taste in the middle of your tongue.
    I'm a fan of good Absinthe, particularly Mari Mayans from Spain which is now unobtainable at a reasonable price since they stopped selling direct. In the bottle this juice smells exactly the same as the real stuff, and the vaping experience is, in my opinion, as close as your going to get to actually drinking a correctly mixed Absinthe. A word of warning though, TW don't actually say if this contains wormwood or not, a source of the toxin Thujone, and the stuff that makes absinthe delicious :)



    Totally Wickeds-Decadent Vapour Premier Range: Doppio Espresso, 18MG [?*%/10]
    Bonkers stuff here, big coffee taste that lingers in the mouth, kinda sweet which disappointed me a little, but not overly so. It reminds me a lot of the 'coffee slice' style cake. The juice is really thick so you have to warm it in a glass of hot water before it will drip into your atty, and I'd advise using a disposable one as your not going to be able to use anything else in there after this. The flavor is very good, but what sets this apart from some of the other coffee flavors I've had; is that this actually contains caffeine! I was curious when ordering this if the caffeine content was just a gimick or not, and I can attest that it is not, this gives a real bang, and the eye opener effect is VERY noticeable. :eek:

    OMG :O
    Sometimes I think regulation is necessary. People are such space cadets. Ah well thats folk, 'nout stranger I've heard

    Self regulation is the best type of regulation, you don't like it, don't try it. It never ceases to amaze me how quick people are to jump in and tell others what they can and can't do.

    Nicotine and caffeine fueled many philosophical debates; and mixing the two in a single delivery system like this may unfortunately spark one. I'm not endorsing it by any means, but it's done, I've tried it, and I lived to tell the tale:D

    Cigarettes contain these chemicals amongst many others;

    Ammonia: Household cleaner
    Angelica root extract: Known to cause cancer in animals
    Arsenic: Used in rat poisons
    Benzene: Used in making dyes, synthetic rubber
    Butane: Gas; used in lighter fluid
    Carbon monoxide: Poisonous gas
    Cadmium: Used in batteries
    Cyanide: Deadly poison
    DDT: A banned insecticide
    Ethyl Furoate: Causes liver damage in animals
    Lead: Poisonous in high doses
    Formaldehiyde: Used to preserve dead specimens
    Methoprene: Insecticide
    Methyl isocyanate: Its accidental release killed 2000 people in Bhopal, India in 1984
    Polonium: Cancer-causing radioactive element


    Suggesting regulation over the use of caffeine in efluid is completely over the top.

    He He good one!
    Come on ppl, it's hard enough to get any kind of acceptance for ecigs, let alone approval.
    If anything other than nicotine and some flavor is added you're right into Joe Duffy territory. "What else is in em Joe, Thats what I'd like to know, could be anything drugs Viagra ?"
    First get em accepted, then add the Viagra, hell I'm wondering if mary jane could be vaped but I ain't gona tell ;)
    Regulation and legislation is coming, don't make it any harder.

    You mean Mary Jo One-Eye, surely? :D

    Weren't you the one that suggested regulation?

    I still don't understand the fact that some folks have such a problem with E cigarette safety. You can pop down to the Esso and buy products that are practically gauranteed to mill you out of it in later life.

    Why are they so concerned about our health all of a sudden?

    I'm off to try some of my 18mg RY-4/Viagra blend...




  • afaik you can make ejuice out of weed, but it's ridiculously wasteful. you need a large amount of weed to make even a small amount of juice, and even at that it'd be such an innefficient way of getting high.




  • Sir Digby, this is your man ;)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXFwcAivsmI




  • That didn't take long to go from caffeine that you give to your kids in soft drinks, to banned substances:rolleyes: Yeah I'm a space cadet; On a side note, my Ma loves the Doppio Espresso. :D

    Anyway....

    TW red label Red Bull ?mg.
    Not my vape but I tried it from a friends order. Good vapor and absolutely manky , 100% true to the real Red Bull flavor! Reminds me of so many terrible hangovers, so if you like the flavor of red bull (does anyone really?), or just want to re-live a hangover, go for it.




  • That didn't take long to go from caffeine that you give to your kids in soft drinks, to banned substances
    Honest to god, it's like a real conversation, gota love boards.

    i see weed flavored stuff in the USA,it only tasted like weed tho :rolleyes:




  • Just received (amongst other things) some of the 'Reggae Nights' flavour from FlavourArt this morning. Very, very impressed.

    Tastes and smells just like the real thing. I've seen cannabis scented candles, cannabis flavoured lollipops, cannabis flavoured this, that and the other over the years and none of them were ever anything close to the smell and flavour of the real stuff but this is really spot on. I would genuinely find it difficult to tell this apart from vapourised real high quality weed in terms of taste and smell.

    Unfortunately the effects do differ significantly. But that would be a little too much to hope for. :pac:

    But yeah, if anyone is interested in trying a marijuana flavoured vape, this will exceed your expectations.




  • dont expect to be able to vape it in a pub though :)

  • I duno Sir Digby, maybe Here http://www.jfp.ie/




  • that'd be a great idea actually, but I won't be able to order until after the 20th :/

    if you still want to place an order after that, I'll fire you a pm and see

    just on this topic, i'm going to have to bow out.. finances this month are looking a lot dodgier than I'd originally budgeted so I won't be able to make any orders from that site. sorry to anyone I kept waiting.




  • No problem.




  • Bought two bottles of the new Liqua Smoke Juice being stocked by thebestshop yesterday that like all bestshop purchases turned up first thing this morning.

    I ordered Light Tobacco and Traditional Tobacco both in 12mg and have been direct dripping and using in 510-T atomizer, I'll fill a LR Boge later and give that a try too.

    I've been vaping these since this morning and so far I'm very impressed.

    Bright Tobacco
    The Bright tobacco is exactly as its named, a nice light/clean tobacco flavour with a very mild sweetness to it and a nice throat hit for 12mg.

    The vapor production is excellent, I could see myself vaping this all day.

    Traditional Tobacco
    The Traditional Tobacco reminds me of Halo Freedom liquid, it's even the same light pink colour, I always found the Freedom liquid improved in the days after opening the bottle and wonder if this will do the same, although if it doesn't I'd still be happy with it.

    Flavour wise it's a nice solid tobacco flavour that reminds me of hand rolling tobacco.

    Again nice throat hit, really nice vapor production.

    These are both excellent juices that I will be buying again.

    The light tobacco is an excellent choice for any ex light analogue smokers or just as a mild all day vape.

    The Traditional Tobacco is more robust in flavour and I could imagine it will make a nice vape with a pint!

    All in all a nice new range available locally.




  • Having enjoyed the tobacco Liqua juices I purchased from the bestshop I decided to go back and buy some of the other flavours to try, here are quick reviews of the three I purchased.

    All of the Liqua juices are PG/VG blend and come individually boxed in bright well designed packaging with the strength and expiry date displayed below the barcode on the side of the box.

    Although the packaging is purely cosmetic it is quite nice to see individually branded boxes for the flavours rather than the usual generic image of mixed fruit or a tobacco field.


    Liqua Coffee (Light 0.9mg)
    I've never been a big fan of coffee juices, I always found them to taste either like sweet milky coffee or burnt coffee beans.

    This Liqua juice has changed all that. Wow what an unbelievable flavour.

    This is your freshly ground full flavoured espresso shot distilled into a juice.

    From the first vape on this you instantly get the intense coffee flavour, and considering the non-tobacco flavour Liqua juices have a lower nicotine level than their tobacco ones this Light strength 0.9mg packs a pleasant punch.

    I also found that the flavour seems to intensify on the exhale and like the tobacco Liqua juices I have already tried produces tons of vapor.

    I think I might be hooked on coffee.


    Liqua Berry Mix (Light 0.9mg)
    I'm a big fan of Apple and Blueberry juices so was interested to try the Berry Mix flavour and see what it had to offer.

    The image on the box shows Blueberries, Raspberries and Black Berries and I was pleasantly surprised to find that's exactly what this juice tastes of!

    The first thought that came to me regarding the flavour of this juice was it reminds me of Summer fruit squash. Thats not a negative comparison as I happen to really like summer fruit squash!

    This juice has a very pleasant sweet fruity and somewhat refreshing flavour to it.
    It really is an accurate representation of mixed berries it's not synthetic tasting in anyway, unlike some of the other fruit liquids I have tried (I'm yet to find an accurate cherry flavour).

    The throat hit on this juice is quite mild but what it lacks in throat hit it makes up for in flavour and I suspect that at a higher nic level it would give a stronger throat hit.

    Like the other Liqua juices I've tried it gives a really nice amount of vapor.

    Fans of fruit flavoured liquids should really give this a try.


    Cigar Tobacco (Light 12mg)
    As someone who had a phase of smoking ridiculously overpriced cigars in the past I've always shied away from cigar flavours as I thought it would be impossible to recreate that intense flavour and vapor in an e-liquid.

    I'm really pleased I put my prejudice aside and bought this juice, it really is a robust full flavour cigar tobacco taste with a lovely dry aftertaste reminiscent of my cigar smoking past.

    Whether its my taste buds fooling me or not I don't know but this juice feels like it has a thicker cigar like vapor on the exhale.

    This is a really relaxing vape and I can certainly see myself getting through a few mil of this on a cold winters evening.


    The Liqua juices are currently only available in 10ml bottle sizes, I don't know if that is because they are a new range to thebestshop or if that is the only size that the manufacturer makes them in, but judging from my experience with them so far I'd probably be looking for some bigger bottles. One thing worth mentioning is the soft silicone bottle spout that makes filling tanks a breeze, the spout fits right into the hole on 510-T and Ego-T tanks for easy non drip filling.




  • Liqua Cigar Tobacco 1.8 Regular.

    Reminds me very much of the pre filled carts that you get with disposables - chocalate/coffee like flavour. Can't really say it tastes anything like a cigar but that's probably a good thing.
    Not a bad juice but wouldn't be a everyday juice to vape with.




  • Kentucky Blend from Liberty flights - Extremely disappointed after hearing all the good things about this juice. Good throat hit but the flavour is sickly sweet with a weird perfume like after taste.

    Also got 10ml bottles of Kentucky Blend Applewood and Cherrywood, same deal with those. Again, so let down. Actaully tastes like sweetened dry ice.

    Caramel from Liberty Flights - I smoke USA mix and Caramel, which I love, which I normally get from Thebestshop but I couldn't get bigger than 10ml. The biggest I could find was 30ml from LF. This has little or no flavour at all, but again, has that weird sweetness like the Kentucky Blend stuff.:mad:




  • ^ Mix your own. A lot cheaper, and you'll soon hit a good mix. Inawera are good. They do some Flavour Arts flavours too, apparently.

  • I think I'll eventually venture down this road, Esel. I still want to sample different flavours before I make my mind up on what to experiment with but right now USA mix and Caramel is hitting the spot.
