It’s been a vaping whirlwind of a year in 2015, and we’ve had a whole smorgasbord of different flavours and trends to try throughout it. We’ve seen creamy yoghurts and milky cereals, with fruit loops, pastries, donuts (and doughnuts)! Who’d have thought Max VG would’ve become a big thing! Looking back at the past year, we’ve thought long and hard to decide on what we at Vape Club believe to the best eLiquids of 2015, and after much debate and deliberation, we give you our selection;
Sweet Leaf by Liquid State
Slipping in towards the end of 2015, Liquid State not only stood out from the crowd with its blood red bottles, but also due to the expert craftsmanship spent on each of the four flavours.
Based on different cultural foods and beverages from various American States, Liquid State have managed to create some truly unique flavour blends.
“A beautiful Ice Tea concoction with flavours that mingle so nicely with each other, it’s one of the most refreshing drink-based vape I’ve tried, and easily the best Iced Tea flavour.” – Jenny
Pink Lemonade by Element
Well known for their dedication to the craft of flavour mixology, Element have carved a name for themselves with their absolutely outstanding tasting eLiquids in a wide variety of flavours.
With their traditional 50/50 blends, as well as their infamous Dripper range, Element have created some excellent juices that are jam packed full of flavour.
“Pink Lemonade is possibly Element’s most iconic and popular liquid, and is a real blast of citrus deliciousness, with the habit of immediately transporting me to a lawn barbeque on a hot summers day, in 1962…” – Paul
Pluto from Space Jam
Still a firm favourite among the Vape Club team for a long while now, Space Jam’s Pluto is a tasty mix of all kinds of melon (Water, Honeydew, and Cantaloupe), along with hints of bubblegum, and a little mint to finish off the flavour blend, and round it off nicely.
While the rest of the Space Jam range are also highly regarded for their flavours, Pluto in particular stands out for its unusual mix that works incredibly well.
“I keep finding myself coming back to Pluto, time and time again. It’s my FBV (fall-back vape) or safety blanket for when I try a liquid that sound amazing, but leaves me disappointed. I can always rely on Pluto to cheer me up again and remind of all the good things about vaping! That being said, Pluto works best for me in a mouth-to-lung set-up, as it’s a 50/50 mix. It can be a little overpowering on a sub-ohm set-up, so I’d recommend using a Nautilus or similar tank, 1.6 – 1.8 ohms at about 12 – 13 watts seems to be good for me.” – Jack
Apple Butter by Liquid State
A sweet cinnamon pie with caramelised apples and a thick, buttery crust; it manages to cover a wide range of flavour bases in one neat little package.
“They should simply have called this liquid, God. And that should be all I have to say… but I like the sound of my own voice nearly as much as I like this liquid so I’ll carry on…This is the daddy of ejuice as far as I’m concerned. Vaping Apple Butter is literally a comforting experience. I like to think that if there is a God, his sweat tastes like Apple Butter. The perfect blend of a warm apple pie with just a hint of cinnamon, balanced perfectly. Simple, but oh so effective. For the record, I’ve only ever vaped this in a sub-ohm set-up and therefore couldn’t recommend for any other set-up based on my own experience.” – Craig
Prometheus by Mystique
From the makers of the venerable Space Jam, the Mystique range is, like it’s name, an exotic mystery swirling of a huge range of flavour notes, meaning that unlike other eliquids that may try to recreate a particular flavour or taste, Mystique goes the complete opposite way and blazes a trail of vapour with their own delicious, multi-layered concoctions.
“The best mouth to lung liquid I have ever tried, it’s perfect for a Nautilus or it’s Mini counterpart, or the Triton 2 with a 1.8ohm coil. The description, ‘Complex Dessert’, is just about as fitting as it gets, with elements of almonds/marzipan, caramelised brown sugar, cinnamon, and something I can never quite place. What’s most remarkable though is that the flavour genuinely does change throughout the day and even from vape to vape. An instantly nostalgic flavour, if that makes sense” – Tom
Frost by Element
Continuing with their uncommonly full flavours, we’ve also nominated another Element eLiquid as one of our favourites of 2015. This is among the iciest, freshest vapes that we’ve ever come across.
In fact, if, like us, you often find yourself wondering exactly what it feels like to be a dry ice machine, then, vaping Frost may well be the closest you’ll ever get. It also serves as an excellent mixer if you fancy adding a little bit of menthol to ice up whatever’s already in your tank.
“For me, this liquid is among the iciest, freshest vapes that I’ve ever come across. Besides being one of the best cures for vaper’s tongue, this is a must have juice for any fan of menthol.” – Steve
Wenebojo Spiritwalker by Manabush
Favoured among the tobacco-heads of the vaping world, Manabush originally produced sweet tobacco blends with wide range of side notes including nuts and honeysuckle, to rum and coconuts. Then introducing the Spiritwalker range, Manabush replaced the tobacco element with a delicious biscuit base that’s present in all flavours of the range.
“The rich Maple syrup and nutty pecans work exceptionally well with the Spiritwalker biscuit base, creating quite a dry but sweet taste that lingers nicely on the ol’ tastebuds. It works great in a Subtank at 25w, but also can be mouth-to-lung vaped in something like a Nautilus; the flavour tends to remain excellent up and down the watts.” – Ben
Origins by Blaq Vapor
Somewhat of a sleeper hit of 2015, Origins from Blaq Vapor crept out quietly from under the vaping radar, and casually plonked itself quite comfortably near the top of the ‘Awesome Flavours’ list without much of an effort at all. Sometimes a flavour just simply speaks for itself, and Origins does just that.
“The dominant flavour is a genuinely lovely Strawberry, not artificial but then not entirely natural, due to the Shortbread being nearly as dominant. Straight out of the bottle Origins is good, but left for just a day (lid on, just having been opened and then closed again, nothing more) and the flavour is out of this world.” – Tom
DaVinci Code by Decoded
Decoded hail from beautiful Canada, and while they’ve only just recently made themselves known to the planet, they’ve been underground in the vaping Matrix, fighting the machines, and creating their impeccable range of ejuices that includes the DaVinci Code; a unique mix of Pecan nuts and a buttery Creme Brulee.
“Leonardo Da Vinci is quite possibly my favourite person in history. No-one, in my humble opinion, has matched the feats the man achieved in a single lifetime and whilst the DaVinci Code is not paying direct homage to the man himself, the liquid itself may well continue his legacy of being an over-achiever. Da Vinci Code is very much a gourmet e-liquid, words like decadent, refined and luxury spring to mind when vaping it. The aroma that fills the air as a result is as good as the flavour itself, a sweet, nutty cloud of happiness. It’s almost like eating a pecan pie at points, but better in many ways. Simply delicious.” – Dan
Tornad-O by VGOD
With a penchant for doing the best vape tricks, the expert mixers over at VGOD have created their range with the biggest of vape clouds in mind.
VGOD’s take on a fruity cereal style flavour, this is a wonderfully fruity tasting liquid with a pleasant hint of savoury cereal that prevents it from being overpowering in its sweetness. This is a real all day vape that is highly difficult to get enough of.
“Tornad-O has the best blend of flavours I have tasted. It’s one of the most flavoursome milk cereals I have had the pleasure of gracing my tastebuds with, and it’s been my ADV for a while now.” – Dan
Taurus by Twelve Vapor
From their unique and eye catching branding, to each of their twelve wonderful flavours, everything about Twelve Vapor says “Premium”, with the possible exception of its price.
All flavours are comprised of a 70% VG mix which makes them perfect for both a sub ohm set up, and a mouth to lung set up.
Along with Capricorn and Aquarius, Taurus is among their most popular flavours and it’s easy to see why after reading what our Kris has to say about it. The man has a way with words.
“A concoction of beautiful flavours with each complementing the last; Almonds, Vanilla and Peanut butter all wrapped up in a warm biscuit undertone, and layered in a blanket of custard.” – Kris
Neon Cream by The Lost Fog
Well known for their delicious range, including the celebrated Milk and Honey, Cosmic Fog went on to produce an additional range of high VG flavours.
Neon Cream provides a vibrant flavour full of Oranges, Lemon and Raspberries and topped off with a creamy layered tone, the Neon Cream is nothing short of a perfect vape for a fruit fan.
“A zingy, fresh and mouthwatering favourite of mine and many other’s. Despite it being a 70% VG mix I do like this liquid in a mouth-to-lung set up, but it really shines when using it in a sub ohm set-up. Not the most potent liquid out there in terms of flavour but what flavour there is, is near vaping perfection. Zesty Citrus with the Orange sherbet on the inhale which gives way to a nice and balanced creamy exhale.” – Joe
So there we have it; the Vape Club team’s selection of their favourite eLiquids of 2015. We’re sure to have some more exciting and palatable flavours in the coming year, so raise your mods high in the air like a Viking warrior; here’s to 2016!
