The reason I went to NicVape was for the 50% off nic liquid sale he had in December. By the way, the sale was so successful Rich ran out of product, so he has extended the sale through January. If you need some quality nic you might want to take advantage of the great half off deal and get some when he restocks here shortly.
My liquid showed up, and two of the nicer freebies I ever received from a vendor were in the box with my nic; a 510 atty and a 10ml bottle of e liquid labeled Jr Mints Daddy. So, loving freebies, I add Rich to the list of world's greatest vendors and pop open the juice to give it a little sample. You guys know I'm a tobacco guy. I never get too excited by non-tobacco vapes. Well let me tell you, I was so delighted with this juice that I went straight to Mrs. Doctor Vapenstein to confirm my impressions, and she agreed.
Today's specimen is a vape that promises chocolate mint bliss that pushes the nostalgia button in all of us. Who hasn't downed a box of these candies at the theater? I have reviewed a couple chocolate mint juices previously, and while I enjoyed both, I never really got around to vaping them after the review session was over. This juice might break that trend.
So let's get to the vaping of this 25mg PG blend and see how it measures in The Lab. I will be using my standby Bombshell at 3.7v for this evaluation.
The nose of this juice is almost identical to sticking your nose in a box of the target candies. I know this because I have said candies on hand today at The Lab, a relic of the recent Christmas festivities at Castle Vapenstein. The lingering aroma left in the air when you vape this is also a dead ringer for the target.
The flavor on inhale has a really robust mint punch to it. The combination of the target flavor and the 25mg nic level work together to provide a throat hit that is one of the best we've seen here in The Lab. I am not kidding, this juice is not kid's stuff. This juice is not afraid to hurt your feelings. It is the single most satisfying non-tobacco vape I have had in terms of initial impact.
The flavor on exhale follows the intense mint of the inhale with a really nice sweet dark chocolate finish. The mint is still there, but it steps back, allows the chocolate to come through, and then leaves a beautiful minty taste and tingle on your lips as an added bonus. The chocolate element of this juice is just so well done. It perfectly captures that sweet dark chocolate and even contains the necessary waxy note that these cheap candies have. The mint is not menthol-y or too overpowering. The flavor of this juice is robust, but perfectly pulled off. Vapor production of this juice is average to slightly above average for a PG blend.
This is a masterfully prepared creation. Rich is not yet offering prepared e liquid on his site, but it is coming soon. I am very happy with the quality of the nic juice I ordered from him for mixing, and I am even more happy about this bottle of Jr Mints Daddy he sent me. I guarantee I will vape this bottle dry. The balance of the flavors in this juice combined with the robust performance and fidelity to the target make NicVape Jr Mints Daddy the first non-tobacco vape to receive a Vapenstein It's Alive! Award. I can't give much higher praise than that. Bravo Rich! I will be watching you very closely from here on out. A resounding "huzzah! huzzah! huzzah!" from Dr. Vapenstein.
