VIP Electronic Cigarette Arcadia Gran Reserva E Juice Overview
VIP Electronic Cigarettes are have been developing e cig products since 2009 and have become a recognised brand on the UK high street.
They started with their cig-a-like e cigarettes but have moved into vape pens, vape mods and e-liquids. The latter of which we are taking a look at today with their new Arcadia Gran Reserva e liquid range.
The Arcadia range of e liquids are recommended for use in sub ohm tanks or clearomiser tanks with dual coils due to the higher VG content.
All the e liquid I am reviewing below is 3mg nicotine strength and a 50PG/50VG mix.
Described by VIP E Cig as:
Our improved version of a popular U.S. gourmet e-liquid. Master’s Choice is a distinctive mix of Kentucky Bourbon, toasted coconut, roasted almond and finished with caramelised brown sugar.
Now, I have to admit two things. The first is that I actually really enjoy a single malt or a touch of Woodford Reserve Bourbon every now and then.
The second is that some things aren’t meant to be vaped.
I mean I like cockles, I love blue cheese and I’m all for a swipe of Marmite on my toast in the morning.
But I wouldn’t be rushing to pop them in my sub ohm tank and vape them.
So it’s safe to say I wasn’t really looking forward to Masters Choice. With that in mind I thought I would get it out of the way first.
I filled up my Aspire Cleito with a fresh 0.4Ohm coil, which has been superb for flavor, and took my first vape.
To say I was surprised is an understatement. This e juice is lovely. On the inhale you get a light touch of the toasted coconut and almond with the exhale bringing a subtle yet noticeable Bourbon. This is all rounded of with the caremalised brown sugar.
This is a seriously tasty juice. It all works so well together and none of the flavours are overpowering. I have found myself vaping this sparingly in the evening, pretty much my after dinner vape.
If you are into your Bourbon and the other flavours sound like your thing then I would recommend giving this a try, it might just surprise you. Masters Choice is a top e liquid.
Described by VIP E Cig As:
We’ve improved on a famous U.S. recipe to create our gourmet Aphrodite complex blend of mouthwatering flavours. A combination of creamy custard and a sweet strawberry flavour. Perfect to vape all day.
Out of the package I received this was the e juice I was looking forward to trying!
I topped up the Vaptio P-I tank (from VIP) with a fresh 0.2 Ohm coil. The first flavour on the inhale is the strawberry, it’s not a fresh strawberry, more like a milkshake strawberry.
This is further enhanced by the custard that adds more of a creamy element while the custard itself sits in the background.
The exhale brings in the brown sugar to complete what is another delicious vape. At higher 40/50 wattage the brown sugar flavour was almost coming across a touch ‘burnt’ in flavour for my tastes so my preference was around the 30W watt range.
As VIP E Cigs describe it, Aphrodite was an easy all day vape for me.
The throat hit from the Arcadia Gran Reserva is subtle as would be expected with these type of flavours but for my personal tastes this is just right and complements the e juices well.
The 50% VG in theses e liquds helps provide plenty of vaper.
Arcadia Gran Reserva Production
VIP E Cig Arcadia e juices are tested by a registered UKAS lab to screen for harmful compunds. The e liquid flavours are all stamped on their respective pages to show the results for Ethylene glycol, Diethylene glycol, Diacetyl, Acetoin and Acetyl propionyl.
All the Arcadia Gran Reserva range is free from the above.
Final VIP Arcadia Gran Reserva E Liquid Review Verdict
I have, so far, only tried two of these e liquids (more to follow) but both the masters Choice and Aphrodite flavours are excellent.
If you want something away from the norm then I would recommend giving the Masters Choice a whirl, this was (surprisingly to me) my top pick. It may not be an all day vape but as a juice to put your feet up and vape it’s superb.
Aphrodite is an easy all day vape suited for those of you with a sweet tooth.
Add to this the fact that VIP Electronic Cigarette have gone the extra step to not only develop flavours that are free of Diacetly and AP but an overview of their lab results are listed on each individual flavour page for all to see.
We have a ‘chicken dinner’ of a juice range here and I can’t wait to try the remaining Black Gold and Divinity flavours. All the VIP Arcadia liquids are priced at £16 for 30ml.
