How Reviews Are Done Here…
When I started vaping, the offerings were fairly slim.
Junk hardware. Flavourless juices claiming to taste like cherries or menthol cigarettes. And not too many people around to offer their assistance.
So when I finally found hardware that didn’t leak upon filling, or short out or go dead after an hour of use, and juice that actually tasted like something, I had to tell the world.
And that’s where this blog came in.
The thing was, I wanted to do it differently than the reviews I had seen. When I searched for juices, I would watch review videos or read posts, and it seemed like most would take two hoots off a dripper or a tank and make their decision immediately. To me, that’s not giving it enough of a chance. I know my tastes will differ from others, same goes for you. But two puffs off a tank and it’s immediately labeled gross, when if you put it in a different atty and it could be the most amazing juice ever? Or if you gave it a little more time, you’d find you loved it? I’ve had my opinion change on a juice half way through a tank, half way through a bottle, and after some steeping time.
And nowadays, there are so many juices. It would seem like every time I turn around, there’s another juice company out there. From the flashy, glitzy, expensive and much hyped to the hidden gems and little known makers, how is one supposed to know what to look for?
Now, I’m not going to make any claims that I know best any anyone should buy what I recommend only. But, at the same time, I know I’ve bought juices that I’ve heard from others were awesome. And so, I hope that if you’re looking for those hidden gems or to find your new ADV in and among the plethora of juices now flooding the market, perhaps I can help.
The way I do reviews aren’t by any sort of book, but my own. And in my book, these are my rules:
- I’m probably going to go through at least a full sized tank’s worth of juice before I make my decision. Chances are though, I’m probably going to empty the bottle while I’m writing, whether I like it or not.
- What the juice was vaped with – atty, type of coil and resistance, the device, and settings when applicable.
- Where to get the juice, cause there’s no point in telling you how amazing something is if there’s no way for you to get it yourself.
Plus there’s a new one:
- Rarely will I review a juice I don’t like at all.
And that one’s subjective. I mean, if I don’t like it cause it’s not my flavour, well, that’s not that bad, and normally I can still find something to say about it that would at least inform someone who would like that flavour what the juice is like. But if it tastes absolutely terrible (and we’ve all had those), unless I’m being pressured for a review, or if I’ve tried multiple batches, tanks, drippers, etc and it still is terrible, I won’t bother. There’s enough negativity in the world – I don’t need to add to that.
So that’s it. I vape it, and I’ll let you know how it is and where to find it. You read it, and what would be really awesome, is if you have tried that juice, or have any questions, write a comment! Let me and the rest of the world know what you think of a juice too.
And now, to get back at it.
