Vampire Vape e-liquid is a UK-based company with a fairly unique flavor lineup designed to stir nostalgic memories of the candies that many Britons enjoyed as children. Did you enjoy Black Jacks, Chewits, Fruit Salads and Parma Violets? If you did, the Vampire Vape line is one that you should definitely try.
Visit Electric Tobacconist, the website that graciously provided the samples for this Vampire Vape review. Vampire Vape e-liquids come in 10 ml bottles and sell for £3.99 each or three bottles for £10. Some flavors are also available in larger bottles. At the time of writing, Vampire Vape juices are not available in the United States.
What Is Vampire Vape E-Liquid?
On my own website, I’ve written extensively about the wide array of e-liquid flavors that companies create simply by using food flavorings in creative combinations. Candy and cereal flavors are especially popular for two reasons. First, they remind us of childhood, and everyone loves a little nostalgia. Second, e-smokers tend to gravitate toward sweeter flavors as soon they realize that getting a nicotine fix doesn’t have to come with a side dose of yuckiness.
Childhood sweets tend to be pretty regional, though. Those who grew up in the United States may have fond memories of flavors such as kiwi-strawberry, watermelon and blue raspberry. In Britain, though, some of the most popular flavors from the past include violet, blackcurrant and anise. Although I’m I’m certainly familiar with some of these flavors myself, I don’t attach the same sense of nostalgia to them as those who grew up in the UK might. So, I’m not exactly the target audience for Vampire Vape juice. Bear that in mind as you read this review.
Vampire Vape Juice Review
Electric Tobacconist provided five different e-liquid flavors for this review. They are:
- Bat Juice: Berry and anise flavors.
- Blackcurrant: Blackcurrant Chewits.
- Dusk: Pink raspberry lemonade fizz.
- Tropical Island: Tropical fruit.
- Vamp Toes: Sweet fruit mix.
I’ve sadly never been fortunate enough to enjoy fresh blackcurrants. I’ve had blackcurrant hard candies, though, and the blackcurrant flavor in Vampire Vape’s e-liquids tastes absolutely authentic. That’s the good bit. The bad bit is that if you don’t like it, it’s a little hard to avoid. I tasted that same flavor in every e-liquid that I tried from Vampire Vape except Dusk. The blackcurrant flavor overpowered all of the flavors with which it was combined, with the exception of the anise flavor in the Bat Juice e-liquid.
Personally, I didn’t care for the blackcurrant flavor. I thought that it smelled wonderful, but I found the flavor overwhelmingly strong. I also tasted what I thought was a powerful alcohol note in each of the e-liquids. Between the alcohol notes and the very powerful flavors, I found all five Vampire Vape e-liquids really intolerable for sub-ohm vaping. If you use a device with lower vapor output, you’re probably going to have a better experience.
Dusk was the oddball in the five Vampire Vape flavors that Electric Tobacconist provided for this review. Unfortunately, I didn’t care for it, either. It definitely tasted fruity — and I didn’t notice any blackcurrant flavor — but the flavor didn’t taste anything to me like pink raspberry lemonade.
Vampire Vape E-Liquid Review: Conclusion
Taste is a very subjective thing. Speaking for myself, though, I wasn’t able to find anything about Vampire Vape’s e-liquids that I liked. The blackcurrant and alcohol flavors in the e-liquids are so strong that they overpower just about every other flavor — and it appears that the majority of Vampire Vape’s juices include blackcurrant. If you’re really craving a blackcurrant e-liquid, you should definitely give Vampire Vape a shot. I’d suggest beginning with a small order, though. You might find that the flavors taste more similar than their descriptions suggest.
