    Bud Vanilla e-juice from ecigaretteb2c

    Some time ago, googolite, posted on this thread, in the newbies section, Need some advice regarding nic juice suggesting members try juice from a previously unknown vendor to us - e liquid, diy e liquid, kind of flavored e liquid on ecigaretteb2c.com
    So I laid down the challenge to them on 19/12/12, to supply me with a free juice sample for the purposes of a review, which they accepted.
    Well nearly 6 weeks on, I was about to give up hope of it arriving but yesterday it arrived & I had to sign for it too, not that I mind signing but I thought that was a little strange considering how long it had taken to get here.

    The sample I requested was Vanilla, since Vanilla is not an easy flavor to always get right & high strength because that was the closest to where I vape at & that is the sample I got today, Bud, Vanilla e-juice, High strength.
    For those wondering, googolite posted the strengths, which are as below:
    High: 18~22mg/ml
    Medium: 11~15mg/ml
    Low: 5~8mg/ml
    Nowhere is this information written on the bottle or on the box the bottle came in, all that is written is stuck on by 2 clear labels on the bottle, one has "High", the other has "Vanilla" on them.
    Likewise, the PG/VG ratio is not mentioned anywhere on the box or bottle, although I have been vaping it for a few hours now & I am pretty certain that the PG/VG ratio is around 75/25, it is not as thick a fog as my 70/30 mixes but it is close to them.

    The packaging, as seen in the pics below, was a padded(bubble wrap) envelope, inside that was a bubble wrap bag, inside that was the box & inside the box was the juice.
    The juice you can see inside the lid, in the pics, is all that had leaked from the bottle in transit, which isn't too bad, in total it was about 3 or 4 drops.
    The dripper is a plastic needle type & after experimenting a bit, I found it can be used to fill an AGA-T genesis, in a pinch but it is not the ideal bottle for that purpose.

    So now to the juice itself:
    The flavor is not unpleasant, not too sweet, no chemical taste to it but it does seem to be on the weak side for taste.
    It is a very subtle vanilla & reminds me a bit of vanilla cupcakes, it tastes good, I just wish I could taste more of it, however I like strong flavored juice, if you prefer lighter flavored juice this one may be worth giving a shot.
    If I had to vape this for the rest of my vaping life, I could comfortably do so but it is not a juice I would go out of my way to get. Simply because there is not enough strength to the flavor for my tastes, what I can taste of the flavor though I do like, however I would not call it a "natural" vanilla but as previously mentioned it has no chemical taste, either on the inhale or exhale.
    As also mentioned this is not a sweet juice, there is an underlying sweetness to it but it has not been sweetened, anyone who does not like sickly sweet vapes would probably like this.
    I would rate it a 6.5 or 7 out of 10.

    Other thoughts:
    I would like to see the PG/VG ratio stated, either on the bottle(preferred) or at least on the box.
    I would like to see the mg/ml on the bottle or box too, high , med , low , is not helping inspire confidence in the product IMO.
    The shipping was obviously sent over the Xmas period & I did expect for it to take time to get here, since being a free sample, it was sent using the cheapest(probably 2nd cheapest "reg'd airmail" since I had to sign for it) option.
    The vendor, seems to be a genuine one & was willing to give others a free sample too, as stated in the newbie thread, as testers. This speaks volumes to me about their desire to do the right thing by vapers & that they are not just in it to make a quick buck, however that could be wrong & only time will truly tell.

    Sorry the pics are upside down & as usual shot using an I-pod, which hasn't got a lot of megapixels but I think you can see enough detail in them.

    Could definitely be worth checking out their site, I notice its brown in colour all mine have been red.
    But tasted like shit, any other vanilla suppliers that seem closer to the real thing but stronger?
    Maybe on their site they have options for doubler and base mix ratio...

    The color definitely is not red or reddish it's a clear dark brown.
    I've gone through about 1 full tank on the AGA-T with it & the coil is looking very clean still, so it's not like most dark juices that are guaranteed atty killers, thus far.
    The TH I'm getting from the juice is on par with most of what I vape, so the nic strength is pretty close to the stated values, I'd still like to see the actual nic strength on the bottle though, rather than "high" which could be 18mg/ml or 22mg/ml.
