I've been making the rounds of big bottle vendors with good reputations who offer Vanilla Custard. I go through way too much of this stuff to pay $20 for a 30ml. In fact I'll just use this space to make a PSA to all juice makers: The day of $20 30ml bottles is over. Many of us vape that in a day. Your market is only going to get smaller and smaller.
Dr. Crimmy's, and vendors like them, absolutely have the right idea. Premium juice at discount prices. $20 should get you 50-120ml, and more and more vendors are going this route. Much of this juice tastes like you had to compromise, but some of it is every bit as good as the $20 30ml stuff, it just falls upon you to find out which vendors are selling the good stuff at wallet friendly prices.
Crimmy's was also a stop I had to make in my search for the ultimate custard vape. Ever since I embraced new technology and updated The Lab I've replaced tobacco with custard for my all day vape. Something about the custards just does it for me. They offer the core satisfaction my tobacco vapes did, the flavor never becomes too much, and most of them seem to be fairly coil friendly. They hit all my benchmarks for what I look for in a juice.
I've been looking for one that has that satisfying, somewhat sour, tangy, egg-y richness. Let's head into The Lab and see if Dr. Crimmy's Overdose has what I'm looking for in a custard vape.
I will be vaping this 3mg 70%VG juice at 23w on a 0.53 ohm build in my Subtank Mini on my Hcigar HB DNA 40. whew that's a mouthful. I've embraced tanks since the Subtank Mini, so most reviews will be done using one. Certain juices change completely when you throw more watts at them, and in those instances I'll use an RDA and tell you that. Also, since most of my reviewing is done on tanks with 70-80% VG juice, assume that the juice wicks fine. I'll say so if a juice doesn't wick well.
The nose of this juice is butter and vanilla.
The flavor on inhale is buttery-sweet, creamy in the mouth. Throat/lung hit, or core satisfaction, is good, I'd say average for a custard vape.
The flavor on exhale transitions to vanilla, with more of that buttery creaminess. I don't get any egg from this. Vapor production is what you'd expect from 70% VG.
The buttery richness is what sets this one apart from the other vanilla forward custard vapes. It's undeniably a quality product with good flavor and doesn't leave you feeling like you had to sacrifice anything to vape it. At $20 for a 60ml bottle Dr. Crimmy's is what I want to see from all vendors: premium quality at a price vapers can afford to make their all day vape. This wasn't the custard I'm looking for, as it lacks that rich egg-y note that I love, but it's a solid juice. If you like vanilla forward custard vapes, this one is above average and should definitely be on your list to try.
