As I said in my blog post about Peach Breeze, although I’ve reviewed many, I’m not a big fan of reviewing juices. It’s the ‘taste is subjective’ aspect that always seems to get in the way. I do want to touch up though on three of my favorite juices thus far in the new WOW Juice line up. I will also be getting into some technical aspects.
I have been a variable voltage/wattage user for a long time and love to stress juices to their limits on top of seeing what flavor aspects come out at different power levels. This means that I like to see how many watts I can use on a juice before it starts to burn. One thing to note is that most of these juices seem to be in the 65/35 PG/VG ratio range. VG thickens e-liquid and produces more vapor.
Certain flavors enhance throat hit, while others mute it (at the same nicotine level). If you take CinnaBlaze for example and vape it at 0%, then vape Traditional Tobacco at 1.2% you’ll notice that CinnaBlaze has almost as much throat hit without any nicotine. A pure VG juice will have lower throat hit as a PG/VG mix of the same flavor with the same amount of nicotine, because VG lessens throat hit. This is why some people who are trying to lower their nicotine intake will vape certain flavors – because they simulate the throat hit generated by higher nicotine.
This juice is my favorite of all the straight tobaccos in this line. Based on its viscosity, flow rate, and vapor production I believe its propylene glycol (PG) to vegetable glycerin (VG) ratio is 70/30 to 75/25 PG/VG range. The throat hit on this juice is amazing. It feels more like I’m vaping a 4.8% mg juice than a 3.6%. Richmond Tobacco a complex tobacco, starts with a slight smokey flavor, then changes to a very robust unfiltered tobacco, to an almost caramelized tobacco end note. This juice has a high wattage limit, with every flavor becoming more intense as the power goes up. I was able to push it 11.9 watts on a single coil carto before scorching, and 14.4 watts on a dual coil carto.
Cherry Cinnamon Tobacco
This juice is in the usual range for the new WOW Vapor line, I would say 65/35 to 60/40
PG/VG – based on thickness and viscosity. Vapor production doesn’t match the thickness though, but still produces a good vape. The cinnamon gives this juice a strong throat hit. As for flavor this is another complex one, and one where the wattage truly comes into play. From 3-6 watts (using single coil cartos) the cherry had the most voice, with the tobacco being very under-toned to a point of background noise, and just a hint of cinnamon on the end. From 6.1-10.6 watts each aspect got a voice, opened with a slightly sour cherry, followed by a sweet pipe-like tobacco, ending with a hard hit of cinnamon. Anything over that and the cinnamon would start to take over the tobacco and by 14.8 watts was nothing but a cherry cinnamon flavor. Using a dual coil carto, the tobacco had little voice in the flavor, except in the 8.1-11.3 watt range.
This is a thinner juice, I would say its blend is 75/25-70/30 PG/VG by viscosity. Throat hit is good, but in comparison to the other cinnamon flavors not in the same league. CinnaBerry is a complex flavor with a nice surprising twist. The flavor starts with a rush of cinnamon, followed by blue/blackberry flavoring without any hint of perfume, ending with another dash of cinnamon. The twist comes when raising the voltage. Where normally this brings out cinnamon to a point of domination over the other aspects of the flavor, in this case it was the opposite. At a higher voltage the dash of cinnamon is overtaken by the berry. Wattage limits on a single coil carto is 11.7 watts, and on a dual coil carto, the highest voltage this juice can withstand is 13.5 watts. Normally not a fan of berry flavors, this one is an exception. For me, CinnaBerry is the perfect blend of sweet and heat!
Have you tried any of these? What did you think?
