The very first order of juice I ever placed was with Vapor Renu. US made, $7/30ml, what a deal, right? Those of you thinking I'm some kind of shill from my previous, glowing reviews will want to keep reading. I am about to prove that what you read here on Vapenstein is my honest opinion, nothing more, nothing less. I am a vaper just like you. I get excited about good product, but I am not going to gloss it over when a product comes up short.
I ordered Vapor Renu 555 and Vapor Renu Black Licorice, both 80PG/20VG, 16mg, medium TH. I got a double shot of flavor on the Black Licorice.
This stuff is just not very good. Oddly they don't even produce vapor uniformly. The 555 produces an average amount, but the Black Licorice is very anemic in the vapor production department.
The Vapor Renu 555 has zero tobacco flavor to my palate, accompanied by zero throat hit. I am forcing myself to vape some right now so the impressions are fresh in my mind. I have been trying to get Mrs. Doctor Vapenstein to use this stuff, but it hasn't worked yet. This 555 is perfume-y and has a real wrong chocolate note to it. Not even like real chocolate, artificial chocolate. As in discount store discount Easter candy chocolate. Here's another gripe I have with this 555. It burns weird. You can't drip it like normal juice. It's like whatever real ingredients they used burn off in a vape or two, leaving behind a watery mess in your atty that has to be blown out and dry burned to make your atomizer useful again.
Right now my poor atty is gurgling and choking on this 555. It doesn't want it either.
The Vapor Renu Black Licorice is a little better. Despite no throat hit and wispy vapor, it actually tastes like Black Licorice. Not natural licorice, but Good n Plenty licorice, and that's ok. It is like vaping a Good n Plenty. Not good enough to order again, but the bottle will get used, eventually.
So apologies to fans of Vapor Renu and the people at Vapor Renu. The nicest people in the world could be making this juice for all I know. It still isn't any good. Vapor Renu 555 and Black Licorice both receive the discreditable Vapenstein Toe Tag and shall rest forever after in an unmarked grave. I have to go brush my teeth now, til next time.
