'Banana Bread' Created by Damien Bouchere of the 'Bouchie Boys'

This is a written review of 'Banana Bread' and my opinion of this juice will be my true and honest opinion as always. The flavour I am reviewing is 24mg 50pg/50vg.
I am using a dripper at 1.9 ohms on my Evic set at 10 watts.
The bottles all come with child proof safety caps, and have warnings on the labels, with all necessary information, which can be easily read.

On opening the bottle,  a pleasant aroma of baked bananas.
The sweet smell of baked bananas, takes me back to my mother’s kitchen, when I was a little girl. By the time I had grown up, my mother could no longer share her recipes or secrets with me, as she became very ill.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to hold on to everything she had taught me, that I could remember, and so after experimenting and testing out different recipes, I finally figured out my very own banana bread recipe, inspired by my mother. She was a beautiful baker, who won awards for her baking, and I learned so much from her over the years, of how to cook and bake everything to perfection. Sadly she passed away, but still, to this day, her recipes live on, and I am very partial to a good quality, freshly baked 'banana bread', straight out of the oven, piping hot, with a good helping of creamy butter and a sprinkling of cinammon sugar. Sometimes, with freshly whipped cream on the side. It is absolutely delicious.

I wanted so much, to taste a good quality 'banana bread' E juice, replicating the flavours of the baked 'banana bread' my mother used to make. The aromas of hot baked bread from the oven, circulating around the house, made my mouth water. This juice didn't quite live up to my memories of my mother's homebaking, but instead, it had a beautiful mellow, creamy ripe banana essence. Mellow, warm and quite moreish..

On the inhale, the flavour of the banana came through, very gentle on the palate, very mellow in taste, but still, quite pleasing. I would have preffered a more prominent flavour of banana, as it was a touch too mellow. I like my juice a little stronger with a bit more flavour, but for those of you who don't enjoy strong flavours, and like your juice to be on the mellower side, then you should give this juice a try.

On the exhale, again, the taste of banana, but with an undertone of breadiness, a yeasty taste, quite overpowering, taking over the flavour of the banana. I also got a slight taste of a dark, bittersweet chocolate. Sweet, but not overly sweet. It reminded me of eating a banana sandwich with a small helping of nutella. Really quite moreish, but one I couldn't vape all day. The flavour of the banana was a little muted, and didn't linger for long afterwards on my palate.
Taste can be very subjective, and what one person doesn't enjoy, another one might. Damien Bouchere, creates a lot of tempting juices, with an array of exciting flavours.
The Mint Cream I had for review last week, was really nice, I ordered another bottle in a bigger size, and I will definitely be ordering more.
Damien was telling me, his profession is a Chef, and the recipes he creates for his E liquids, are just as important to him, as his recipes are in his kitchen. A lot of thought, hard work and dedication has gone into making these Juices, and as pleasing as they are, this one I was reviewing today just wasn't for me.

With the setup I was using, the flavour was very palatable and pleasant, the throat hit was perfect, and the vapour production was immense.
