I’ll start by saying that here in the States; blackcurrant is not something that is well known. We know red grapes and white grapes but blackcurrant is neither a fruit that isn’t often carried at grocery stores nor something most Americans would think to buy. Fortunately I grew up eating blackcurrant gummy candies when I was a child. It was a real treat for me considering they had to be specially bought at Asian grocery stores or ordered online. Needless to say when I saw the blackcurrant option, I jumped at the opportunity to try it, and I must proclaim I do not regret my decision!
The E-Liquid came in a 10ml plastic bottle with Vapemate’s logo and a child protective cap. The dropper bottle had a plastic needle shaped nose. This is actually a nice touch in my opinion as a lot of vendors would rather cheap out and not get the thinner nose. Having a thinner dripper nose makes it easier to refill a tank or drip in an atomizer. I was also extremely impressed with the amount of detail the label on the bottle had. It included the PG/VG ratio, nicotine level, name of the E-Liquid, and as well as several warnings as this is an adult only item. Something a lot of vendors would be too lazy to do.
Goodness gracious the E-Liquid smelled absolutely amazing. Upon the first sniff it brought back childhood memories of dark colored soft candies my Mother bought for me. The smell was quite strong and there was no denying this was definitely a blackcurrant flavor no guess required here.
Taste Test Low Wattage
At a low wattage setting, the taste of this E-Liquid is sweet but not overwhelming. Definitely something you can enjoy all day long. I do get some hints of tart with the sweetness which is uncommon to find in any E-Liquid. It really does taste like blackcurrant candies rather than the fruit itself. Which is fine by me considering how fond I am of the candies. Throat hit on this flavor is definitely weaker than most, which is great considering I prefer a much smoother vape when vaping.
Taste Test High Wattage
For the cloud chasers out there, I did a high wattage test on this E-Liquid as well. Initial thoughts were the E-Liquid is definitely muted with high wattages. This E-Liquid is definitely more suitable at lower wattages or in tanks. With higher wattages the sweetness definitely isn’t as apparent and instead of a candy taste on the exhale, I get more of a raisin taste instead. High wattage should definitely not be used to get the most out of this E-Liquid.
I ordered 100% VG ratio in the blackcurrant E-Liquid. In fact all my E-Liquids will be 100% VG due to my PG allergy so your results may differ from mine if you order another ratio. The vapor production is definitely intense. Large plumes of vapor can definitely be achieved with this E-Liquid.
This flavor is a must have! I cannot get enough of this flavor. While writing this review I’ve already gone through half the bottle! Even if you have never tried blackcurrant before, the flavor is very good. Sweet but not overbearing but yet a bit tart as well. I can definitely see myself using this flavor all day long without getting tired of it. I would like to add though since this flavor works better on lower wattages; look into getting the blackcurrant ice flavor as well. I can definitely tell a cooling agent to this flavor can make it twice as good without taking away from the flavor profile itself.
