Vlads VG – Fantastic or Flop?
Earlier this summer, Vampire Vape announced their high VG range named Vlads VG. The announcement was met mixed reviews. Some vapers predicted that, whilst Vampire Vape is popular among beginner vapers, there are far more complex and delicately mixed juices out there for high VG vapers and sub-ohmers. Other vapers expect that the new ‘Vlads VG’ line will swiftly become a favourite, lining the shelves of vape shops across the country. Only time will tell. Of course, we can sample the liquids to let you know what we think, so here we go!
Tiger Ice E-Liquid
Tiger Ice, as this juice has been named, is the most intriguing of the new range. This is mainly due to it being a Max VG e-liquid with minimum PG (about 5-10%). Vampire Vape are well known for their menthol vapes and this one doesn’t disappoint. The biggest surprise for us was that the menthol was not overpowering. Other, lower VG, e-liquids such as Black Ice make you feel as if you have frozen your lungs with the strength of the mint.
There is a mint flavour but it doesn’t kill your tastebuds with every puff. The mild vanilla flavour is noticeable yet still quite mild, giving way to the mint. The toffee is certainly present on the exhale. Who would have thought that menthol and toffee would make such a lovely combination?
High VG Heisenberg
The vaping community has been asking for a high VG Heisenberg for literally years now. Far and wide, the regular PG/VG Heisenberg has been Vampire Vape’s best selling e-liquid. It comes as no surprise then, that the new blend has received critical acclaim across the board. Each puff brings you flashbacks of when you used to puff this stuff all day on your eGo or Aspire K2.
As always, the frustratingly difficult to distinguish flavours of Heisenberg are all present. The aniseed is a little stronger than you may remember, but the fruity undertone still remains. Grape, blueberry and, oh what was that? I can’t quite put my finger on it! In addition you get the light liquorice and subtle tingle of mint. The new Heisenberg come s in two different bottles one with and one without the renowned cyrstaline sensation that isn’t quite menthol.
On a level with Heisenberg, Pinkman has been the most adored Vampire Vape. It is easy to draw parallels between the two new juices. They both feature the well-used 70/30 VG/PG ratio and come in 0, 3 and 6mg nicotine levels. In addition, both resemble their former formulations however feature a slightly different, more advanced flavour profile. If you were a fan of the original Pinkman then you will be a fan of the Revamped version. If not, then it is probably not the juice for you.
For many of us, this juice will be remembered as our first pink lemonade. A long time has passed since the days when we were vaping even ratio e-liquids, however. It seems now that every other brand of juice has it’s own spin off of the staple flavour. Whilst the new Pinkman is good, for some of us we may have already found a better alternative. Of course, there will still be those who cannot get enough of the classic fruity explosion!
The team here at The Vaping Lounge is still undecided on whether Vlads VG will be the next staple of the vaper’s diet or whether the range of juice will be rapidly forgotten. What do you think?
