Our first impression of Virgin Vapor came from our look at the bottles when we opened the package they sent us. The bottles are all glass with rubber stoppers. The glass is designed to keep out any artificial byproducts that can seep into the liquid when using plastic. The only problem with using glass is how easy it is to break them. If you like to travel with your e-liquid bottles, you will have to be extra careful.
But these beautiful bottles are the kind you will want to keep long after you emptied the juice out of them. They are very sleek and impressive, and their design goes to show you how much thought is put into this line of e-juices.
Virgin Vapor offers a few choices when it comes to liquid selections. Most of their products are made with a 100% vegetable glycerin base. This makes them taste a little sweeter than what you might find elsewhere, and it gives them a nice throat hit with a thick vapor.
A few of their products come with a 50/50 mix of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol, so if that is what you are used to, you just have to request that they send your order with the base mix you want.
But the main draw here is the organic ingredients. Their products are free of gluten and sugar, and they use pharmaceutical grade nicotine. Taking a draw with their liquids feels like you are getting concentrated flavor delivered directly to your mouth. Speaking of which, let’s get to some of those flavors.
Eggnog- This doesn’t have the overly egg-y taste than many eggnog varieties tend to falter on. It tastes just like the very best eggnog, and we love it for that.
Maple French Toast- This is one of the industry favorites, winning awards for its powerful and true-to-life tastes. The maple hits you on the way in and out, and you get the wonderful flavor of cinnamon as well. If you don’t like these flavors, then you won’t like this liquid, but we dug it.
Double Espresso- Out of all the flavors we tried, this was the one that felt the flattest. Even after we let it steep, it just had a less than stellar taste to it. We would recommend it only for people who are happy with substandard coffee flavors.
Is It Worth Your Money?[rating2qsc itemreviewed=”Virgin Vapor” rating=”84″ best=”100″ datepublished=”2015-11-05″][/rating2qsc] Despite selling high end e-liquid, Virgin Vapor’s prices are not any higher than the majority of their competition. Most bottles sell for $11.50 or $13.50, depending on the flavor you choose. What you get are premium e-liquids that offer a truly unique experience.
The company has some of the most fiercely loyal customers out there simply because they are committed to making natural, quality e-juices. You always know you are getting something made professionally and organically when you order from them.
But it should be noted that because they are using a vegetable base for many of their flavors, the product needs a long steeping time. Most of the time, it will take a few days or even a week for it to steep properly. This process allows the flavors and ingredients to mix properly. If they are not given time to do this, they will taste flat and have little flavor.
You can steep your e-liquids by opening them up and allowing them to breathe. Even if you are used to doing this for liquids with PG /VG bases, you will have to allow more time for these VG base juices.
But having to wait just makes these great e-liquids taste even sweeter. They are definitely worth the wait, and we know we will by trying out more flavors and keeping some of those we did try in our rotation.
- Beautiful, glass bottles make these truly high-end products
- Flavorful juices that have intense taste
- All natural ingredients
- Long steeping time required
- Glass bottles break easily
For us, it comes down to the taste. We can put up with quibbles like long steeping time and breakable bottles if we get to enjoy flavor as wonderful as what Virgin Vapor is offering.
