E-Liquid Review: Ruthless Ejuice’s Grape Drank

ruthless-grape-drank

UPDATE: My video review was recorded in May 2015, but I’ve since changed my final thoughts on this e-liquid, I’ve updated this post to reflect that. Basically, the perfume taste has gone away and now this juice is awesome.

GeordieVaper on Twitter (who is no longer on Twitter!) recommended that I try out Grape Drank from Ruthless and it just so happened that my local vape shop was having a sale on all Ruthless juices on that same day, so I picked up a bottle of this grape e-liquid in 6mg nicotine. Ruthless only makes this in 85vg/15pg.

Ruthless doesn’t sell their e-liquids on their website so you’ll need to find a location near you using their locations page or by finding an online store that sells it.

Product Specs:

Product Description: The flavor of grape skittles and grape soda

Grape Drank only comes in 85% VG / 15% PG

Average price: $12.99 for 15ml bottle

Glass bottle

Nicotine Strengths Offered: 0 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg

Smell:

Grape Drank smells just like grape soda. It smells delicious! I couldn’t wait to try this one after smelling it.

Taste:

I first tried Grape Drank in my Caterpillar RDA at 20 Watts and I thought it tasted a little like perfume, so I dropped it down to 10 watts, which seemed much better. It still had a bit of a perfume taste, but I could taste the grape a lot better. I couldn’t taste the grape skittles flavor. If it tastes like any type of grape soda, I’d say it mostly resembles grape Fanta. At 6mg nicotine, it has hardly any throat hit at all. It’s smooth.

The first time I tried Grape Drank was back in May 2015. After letting it sit for about a month, the perfume taste went away completely. It’s been 7 months since I bought that bottle and I saved just a little bit to finish up this review. At 70 watts on a 0.46 ohm build, it tastes great. Yep, it’s awesome. It tastes just like grape soda and now without a perfume taste.

What Other People Are Saying:

A lot of reviews online say it tastes just like grape soda, so people agree with that description, but practically nobody said it tastes like grape skittles. Just about every review I could find was positive, but there were a couple of similar “perfume” complaints. It seems after steeping for a little while, the perfume taste goes away, or at least it did for me.

Would I Buy It Again?

Hell yeah. This has become one of my favorite e-liquids. When I first tried Grape Drank, it didn’t blow me away. Especially because of the hint of perfume it had, but when the perfume taste went away, the taste was amazing. This one is on my list of must-have e-liquids.

E-Juice Review: VapeWild’s Peanut Butter Bonanza E-Juice

I bought VapeWild’s Peanut Butter Bonanza thinking it was simply a peanut butter e-juice. I didn’t look at the product page or read any reviews. I just bought the sample pack and picked names from the drop-down menu of flavors I wanted to try and a peanut butter e-liquid sounded interesting so I chose it. I went with a 65vg / 35pg blend and 9mg nicotine.

Product Specs:

Product Description: A delectable e-liquid blend of rich and creamy peanut butter with a bonanza of sweet bananas!

Primary Flavors: Peanut Butter, Banana

With the option to add 50% more flavoring

Nicotine Strengths Offered: 0 mg, 1.5, 3 mg, 6 mg, 9 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, 24 mg

VG / PG Blends Offered:

  • VG 80%+
  • VG 65% / PG 35%
  • VG 50% / PG 50%
  • VG 35% / PG 65%
  • VG 20% / PG 80%

Smell:

After two weeks of steeping, it smells mostly like peanut butter with a hint of sweetness, but the sweetness is unidentifiable. After a good long steep (2-3 months), it smells just like peanut butter and banana.

Taste:

Before steeping, Peanut Butter Bonanza tasted like the peanut butter you’d find in one of those little snack packs you’d eat as a kid, which I like. I could only taste the flavor on the exhale. It had a mild throat hit and good vapor production. I’d say it’s decent without steeping, although the banana flavor is hardly noticeable.

After three weeks of steeping, I put Peanut Butter Bonanza in my Caterpillar RDA using a dual coil, 1.2 ohm build at 20 watts. It had a good flavor and a sweetness that it didn’t have before. After dropping it down to 7.5 watts I could really taste the peanut butter.

I decided to try it out again 3 months after recording the original video and somewhere during that time the flavor finally came in. It tastes just like peanut butter and banana. This time I used my Freakshow Mini, single coil, 1.2 ohms at 18 watts. The Freakshow mini is known for being a flavor-atomizer, so that might have contributed to the better flavor.

What Other People Are Saying:

I actually didn’t realize that Peanut Butter Bonanza was supposed to have a banana flavor until I read the reviews. A lot of people say it tastes just like peanut butter and banana sandwiches, which it definitely does after it has a good amount of time to steep.

Would I Buy It Again?

Yes! I probably wouldn’t have bought Peanut Butter Bonanza again after the two-week steep period, but the full flavor came in after a couple of months. The full flavor is awesome and I would have no hesitation in buying it again.

E-Juice Review: VapeWild’s Captain Munch – Captain Crunch E-Juice

*If you’re a new VapeWild customer, order with my referral link so that I can earn points towards future orders.

I ordered VapeWild’s Captain Munch e-juice when I first got into vaping, which seemed to be right when the cereal-flavored e-juice craze started. Vaping a cereal flavor seemed weird to me but everyone was talking about how good it is so I gave in to peer pressure and ordered some! I went with 9mg nicotine and 65vg/35pg.

Product Specs:

How VapeWild describes it: You know the cereal, now you can experience the e-juice. You can almost taste the crunch of this delicious Captain Munch e-liquid.

Primary Flavors: Cereal

With the option to add 50% more flavoring

Nicotine Strengths Offered: 0 mg, 1.5, 3 mg, 6 mg, 9 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, 24 mg

VG / PG Blends Offered:

  • VG 80%+
  • VG 65% / PG 35%
  • VG 50% / PG 50%
  • VG 35% / PG 65%
  • VG 20% / PG 80%

Smell:

It smells sweet and kinda like Captain Crunch, but the idea that it smells like Captain Crunch could be in my head since I know what it’s supposed to taste like.

Taste:

Before steeping it hardly had any flavor at all. I wouldn’t have been able to guess the flavor if I didn’t know what it was. From the little bit of flavor that I could taste, I didn’t really care for it much.

After letting it steep for three weeks, I tried it in my old school Boge 510 dripping atomizer built at 2.6 ohms and set at 10 watts, which was too much for the Boge 510, so I dropped it down to 5 watts. It didn’t really have any flavor at either setting.

Next I tried it in my Caterpillar RDA set at 1.2 ohms and 7.5 watts and again, not much flavor.

What Other People Are Saying:

There are plenty of reviews on VapeWild’s website that say it tastes like cereal. Some people say it requires an extra shot and I would strongly agree with that because I can hardly taste a thing in this one. One reviewer said it tastes a lot better when mixed with Strawberries and Cream e-juice, which is an interesting recommendation. If I end up with some strawberries and cream at some point, I’ll try to remember to give it a try.

Would I Buy It Again?

I don’t care for this one. There’s just not enough flavor and from what I can taste, it sure doesn’t taste like Captain Crunch. I wouldn’t buy this one again.

E-Liquid Review: White Gummy Bear E-Juice from Bombies

bombies-white-gummy-bear

First a warning, which comes directly from Bombies website: “This may crack your plastic tank! We recommend using pyrex glass tanks or drippers.”

I won a giveaway on Reddit from VapeCentric.com back in March 2015 (yes, this review is way past due) and I decided to go with White Gummy B from Bombies because everyone was talking about it at the time. It only comes in max VG and I went with 6mg nicotine.

Product Specs:

Product Description – White Gummy B delivers a sweet pineapple vape with a delicate gummy candy finish.

$8.99, 15ml bottle

Sizes: 7ml, 15ml, 30ml, 50ml, 120ml, 500ml

Nicotine Strengths Offered: 0 mg, 1.5 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, 24 mg

Smell:

It smells just like gummy bears. Just smelling this juice gave me such bad candy cravings.

Taste:

I put White Gummy B in my Nautilus Mini tank and vaped it at 1.8ohms and 10 watts. I could immediately identify the flavor. It tastes exactly like white gummy bears.

I actually bought a bag of gummy bears a day after I first tried it to compare the flavor and it tastes exactly like the white gummy bear. It doesn’t tastes like any of the other flavors though. I recorded a video of me taste testing, but I misplaced the video and couldn’t find it to add to my review.

I hate to say it but I got tired of the flavor after vaping it for a couple of days straight. The flavor stayed strong that whole time though.

What Other People Are Saying:

All of the reviews I found online agree that it tastes good and it tastes exactly like white gummy bears.

Would I Buy It Again?

Maybe. The flavor is right on the mark, but I got tired of the sweetness. If I’m ever craving a gummy bear e-juice, yes I’d buy it again, but I just don’t know if I’ll ever have such a craving. But if you’re a big fan of white gummy bears, I think you’ll like this one a lot and I would highly recommend it.

X Cube II TC Updates Are Now Free

x-cube-ii-tc-updates

If you bought the X Cube II, you know the upgrades for temperature control support for titanium wire costs $0.50 and stainless steel costs $0.99. I guess SMOK realized how ridiculous it was not to just include this with the device, or maybe they didn’t make any money from it, but they’ve decided to make these upgrades free from now on. Sweet!

If you already purchased the upgrade, SMOK will give you a $5 coupon to use for anything on their site, but you have to use it before March 31, 2016.

You can find more details on their website.

I’ve already updated mine. Now if only they will release an update that removes the 1-2 second delay to fire the device. That would make the X Cube II just about perfect.

Let's Vape!
