LTecigs

Today I am reviewing eight new e-liquids, given to me free for review. They haven't yet been introduced to the shop. Sharon and Flemming asked me if I would like to try all eight e liquids and let them know my thoughts on each flavour. I graciously agreed as I'm a big fan of LT's e-liquids.

LTecigs is an E-Liquid/E-cigarette company run by Flemming and Sharon. Two lovely people who have been running LTecigs for sometime, solely to help the Vaping community new and old, and for those seeking to give up smoking tobacco products and transition over to E-cigarettes. They have a large following of fellow vapers in our ever growing vaping community, and are a company who strive to please their customers, and serve the public to the highest level possible. They have worked very hard to make their business the best there is, and are proud of their achievement in doing so.

As Flemming said in his own words, " The company has years of experience in selling good quality ecigs and accessories. We pride ourselves in giving a fast and efficient service. Customer satisfaction is our priority".

I have been a customer of Sharon and Flemming for quite sometime now. I have been vaping for over 3 years,  and I can honestly say I have never had a bad experience whilst shopping with them. I will admit, at first, when I purchased for the first time, I thought a juice at £5.20 for 30ml surely couldn't be all that good, but wow! was I wrong. I absolutely loved them. Their customer service is impeccable, their standard in e-liquid can't be beaten, both in quality and price, and they are a credit to our vaping community. Shipping times are remarkable, as is the standard of service they produce. They take pride in all they do, and it clearly shines through. An amazing one stop mod shop for all your vaping needs. From e-liquids to mods, from starter kits to DIY, they have it all.
10ml bottles are, on average £2.40, and 30ml bottles are £5.40 or there abouts. Some e liquids are a few pennies more. It really depends on the complexity of the juice. The ingredients used by LTecigs are of the highest quality, and are made by them, here in the UK.

The e-liquids I am reviewing are (in order) :- Black Ice, Peach, Heisenberg, Mountain Mist, Banana Cream, Cherry Menthol, Candy Floss, and Tizer.

To test the e-liquids, I am using my Axis with my Vulcan RDA at 0.5ohm and .26 kanthal with Muji cotton. I have it set at 35w. The e-liquids are all 6mg 50pg/50vg.
All bottles are chip compliant and come with child safety caps, and all necessary tactile warnings as required. They have good labelling which is easily read, and they all come with 'USE BY DATES', which I think is great.
My opinion of these e-liquids are of my own, and will be my true and honest opinion as always.


NO.1 - BLACK ICE

On opening the bottle, a sweet, dark, earthy aroma slowly arose from the bottle. Fresh, fragrant and very appealing to the nose. It made my mouth salivate, and I couldn't wait to try it.
It's aromas gave the slightest hint of  blackcurrant in the background. I knew straight away I was going to enjoy this one.

On the Inhale, A dark semi sweet liquorice flavour, fanned over my palate. Soothing, smooth and light, followed by a slight absinthe/aniseed earthy type of taste, softly caressing my tastebuds, and filling my mouth with a soft, mellowing, gentleness. A flavour which takes me back to my childhood, and a penny bag of liquorice and blackcurrant hard boiled sweets from our local sweet shop. Oh Boy! were they good.

On the exhale, a chilling kick of cooling menthol glides over my palate. Icy cold and very refreshing, yet warming and not overpowering in any way. This was a match made in heaven. The cool breeze of the menthol cascaded over my palate, leaving a cool, sweet, sensation on my awaiting lips. The flavours lingered for a little while after on my tongue, teasing my tastebuds, and wanting more.

Summary:- This is a lovely e-liquid. It's sweet but not overly sweet. There were no underlying bitterness or acidity. I really enjoyed this one. Refreshing, moreish, and very inviting, are how I would explain this one.
The flavours work perfectly well together, and, the aftertaste remaining on my palate afterwards was truly divine.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes, definitely
Would I change anything about it .................. No
Vapour Production ............... Excellent for a 50/50 juice. It also depends on your set up.
Throathit - Very good for a 6mg juice
ADV - Not an all day vape for me but definitely throughout the day inbetween my usual vapes.

If you enjoy the above mentioned flavours, you will love this one. I recommend you give it a try. You won't be disappointed.





No.2 - PEACH

On opening the bottle, my first reaction to the aroma was simply WOW! It hit me with the most pronounced peach scent I have ever come across in an e-liquid.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             The peachy scents filled the air in a matter of seconds, and I imagined myself in a sunny meadow surrounded in a sea full of peaches and warm bright sunshine. The luxurious, satin smooth, fresh, juicy peaches, were mouthwateringly appealing to me, and I couldn't wait to try it.

On the Inhale, the flavour of the peach was just incredible. So pronounced and ripe. A sweet juicy Georgia peach with hints of a sweet white peach. A white peach has less acidic properties and is sweeter, unlike the yellow peach which has a more acidic sweetness. Imagine picking one from a tree, and immediately biting into its warm, sweet flesh.  Fresh, soft, smooth, juicy and tantalisingly mouthwatering. A luscious, juicy peach is one of summer's ultimate pleasures. Soft and smooth on the outside and sweet and juicy on the inside. What more could you ask for.

On the exhale, flowing, caressing and enveloping the whole of my mouth with such passion, and slowly leaving a lingering spiciness as it passes over my lips into the atmosphere. The flavour generously lingers in the mouth for quite some time afterwards,  exciting your palate and leaving a scent of everything summer in your surroundings.

Summary:- This is by far, the best peach e-liquid I have had to date. It is so fresh it almost feels real. I highly recommend this juice, because you have to taste it to believe it. Vape it and see where it takes you to.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes, definitely
Would I change anything about it .................. No
Vapour Production ............... Excellent for a 50/50 juice. It also depends on your set up.
Throathit - Very good for a 6mg juice
ADV - Yes, this is one I could vape all day long, it's that good.





No.3 - HEISENBERG (Breaking Bad TV series)

Product description on google :- 'A secret recipe that can only be described as the daddy of all day vapes.
A fruity undertone and a cool crystal after sensation that will leave you wondering what it is and wanting more.'

*(Heisenberg e-liquid is a blue slush puppy flavour, earning it's name from Walter White's creation on the hit television show "Breaking Bad", and fastly becoming one of the worlds most talked about E-Liquid flavours.)*( 'taken from Wiki' )

On opening the bottle, a light fruity, floral scent arose from the bottle. The aroma was quite strong, but still very complex to selectively choose what is actually in the juice.

On the Inhale, the first taste I recognised was a black grape type of flavour, with a slight bitter spicy note. There were hints of blue raspberry, quite like the slush puppies we had in our childhood. The flavour intensity brought out the sweetness of the juice, and lurking in the background were hints of a tangy citrus, maybe lemon, and a tartness that pulls all the complexity of the flavours together, not unlike an angus dura bitters. The creaminess is hiding in the background, but cuts through the sour notes to give a well rounded vape. I'm not sure what has been used to make the juice, but to me I can taste a very slight hint of vanilla.

On the exhale, an icy blast chilled my mouth. Cooling, but in no way harsh. I wouldn't say it was a menthol blast, but rather a Koolada ice. There were slight hints of eucalyptus or wintergreen, but again, I'm not too sure, I could be totally wrong on all aspects. This is what my tastebuds are picking up. Your opinion of the flavours could be totally different from mine. Taste is very subjective and this one is difficult to pin point what flavours are in there. A very complex flavour and a good one at that.

Summary:- Heisenberg is a very complex e-liquid. It has many different layers to it, and to summarise it in two words, I would say 'Simply delicious'.
If you like multi complex e-liquids which are fruity, chilled, and has depth, then you will have to try this one. Another great juice LT.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes, definitely
Would I change anything about it .................. No
Vapour Production ............... Excellent for a 50/50 juice.
Throathit - Excellent for a 6mg juice
ADV - Probably not, as it's a very rich juice for me. I would vape it while sitting chilling at night in front of the TV, or for that moment when I want to vape something a bit different to my all day vapes. This would be a good one for those with vapers tongue.





No.4 - MOUNTAIN MIST

Mountain Dew is a carbonated soft drink brand produced and owned by PepsiCo.

On opening the bottle, I could smell freshly squeezed lemons. The aroma of this one is a little lighter than the others, but still a very refreshing scent arose from the bottle and very pleasing to the nose.

On the Inhale, the rush of sweet lemonade swept over my taste buds. Refreshing and energising, and another fantastic summer vape whilst basking out in the hot sun. It is a very smooth vape with no acidity. It won't pull your cheeks together, which I prefer. Sweet but not overly sweet and just perfect for cleansing the palate.

On the exhale, that same rush of sweet lemonade, but this time joined by a succulent sweet Mediterranean lime, stimulating my salivary glands, feeling refreshed and alive.

Summary:- I have always been partial to citrus vapes, and this one is extremely nice. The blend of lemon and lime pair beautifully together, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to start your day. A lovely smooth vape.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes
Would I change anything about it .................. No
Vapour Production ...............  Really good vapour production, as with all the e-liquids here.
Throathit - Perfect for 6mg
ADV - Most definitely yes







No.5 - BANANA CREAM

Banana Cream  is a delicious dessert flavour with notes of vanilla custard, creams and fresh ripe bananas. It's a favourite dessert dish we all know and love. A comfort food that lives up to it's name.

On opening the bottle, the fragrance begins with top notes of ripe banana, and a yummy ambrosia of vanilla and sweet whipped cream.

On the Inhale, A nice full on aroma of banana, and I would say a natural banana flavour dominating this juice, mixed with just the right amount of creams and vanillas to give a smooth, rich and pleasant vape. Oozing with flavour, this e-liquid will satisfy your sweet tooth without packing on the calories. It is a very smooth vape, creamy, sweet and delicious, but not overwhelming, and just the right amount of sweetness. The smooth vape provides a nice compliment to the creamy taste of the vanilla extract. It has that perfect sweet taste we look for and love in a dessert, and it oozes quality.

On the exhale, a thick billowing cloud of heaven. This is pure indulgence, and I can't seem to put down to move forward onto my next juice review.

Summary:- This e-liquid is beautiful. It's the perfect vape and one every vaper should have in their daily rotation. It would be great after your evening meal or to sit and chillout with at night with a nice hot cocoa. Anyone who likes banana vapes will love this one. Pure indulgence.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes
Would I change anything about it .................. No, it's perfect
Vapour Production ...............  Great vapour production
Throathit ............. Minimal throat hit as it is a very smooth vape
ADV ..................... I would happily vape this all day







No.6 - CHERRY MENTHOL

A sweet and cooling cherry menthol blend. Reminiscent of those famous sweets that help you breathe more easily. It is a tuneful mix of sweet red cherries wrapped in a cooling menthol.

On opening the bottle, the aroma of sharp, sweet, red cherries wafted in the air. Tantalizing, sweet and seductive.

On the Inhale, a wonderful cherry flavour, flowed onto my palate with no effort at all,  resting silently on my tongue. Fresh, soothing, smooth, refreshing and simply delicious, with just the right amount of sweetness to carry the sharpness of the cherry. A delicious sweet cherry hit lasting for seconds, rolling around your tongue, your tastebuds begging for more.

On the exhale, an icy chilling blast of menthol encapsulates your tastebuds. Swirling around your mouth with pleasure. Two very popular flavours rolled into one. Blended to perfection, with none overpowering the other. A very sexy juice, and one I'll be stocking up with. It takes you to parts, youv'e never been before.

Summary:- This is another fantastic flavour LTecigs have lovingly brought to us. What an amazing vape.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes definitely
Would I change anything about it .................. No, it's perfect
Vapour Production ...............  Excellent
Throathit ................ Perfect
ADV ..................... Yes, I would vape this all day.





No.7 - CANDY FLOSS

Candy floss is a form of spun sugar. Very Sweet and light in taste. You can now experience the fun of the fair all year round, without leaving home in the comfort of your own armchair.
There is no flavour or colour to the white candy floss until colouring and flavouring are added, and it is mostly sold in fairgrounds, circuses and carnivals. I had to check google for this one, as I wasn't quite sure how candy floss should taste or smell in e-liquid form. This is what I found :-
Candy Floss tastes like a sugary poofy ball at first and dissolves very quickly to leave a sandy sugar in your mouth. It's extremely sweet because after all it is only sugar. People enjoy it because it's fun to eat...the consistency and texture is fun in your mouth and it's fluffy. There are no aromas from Candy floss except if the sugar burns in the hot machine it gives a burnt caramelised smell and taste. The taste of the fairground.

On opening the bottle, I couldn't smell any aroma from this one. I decided to leave it overnight and check it again the following day to see if that made any difference. With me trying all the other juices one after the other, I thought it might have been my tastebuds giving up with all the taste testing I did the night before, so I decided to give them a rest. Next morning arrived and I tried smelling the juice but still no aroma. The next step was to try vaping it and see if that made a difference.

On the Inhale, I could actually taste a slight hint of candy floss, but there wasn't much flavour to it at all.  I didn't want to give up, so I decided to try it in my sub ohm tank and another rda, but still no difference. The vape was still a pleasant one. It felt like I was vaping huge fluffy clouds. The sweetness was there, but it wasn't overly sweet. It was'nt a bad juice, it just lacked flavour.

On the exhale, I got the same taste as I did on the inhale. I'm afraid I can't say much on this one but it definitely wasn't one for me. As you all know, taste is very subjective, and what I may not like, you may love.

Summary:- This would be perfect with added cherry or strawberry flavourings, as it gives that fluffy feeling in the mouth when vaped.
This sadly wasn't one for me. I've never been a candy floss fan, but if you like candy floss, you should give this one a try.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ I might if the juice had more flavour.
Would I change anything about it .................. Yes, maybe some fruity flavours being added.
Vapour Production ...............  Good vapour production as always with LTecigs juices.
Throathit ................ minimal as it's a very smooth vape
ADV ................... No, not for me





N0. 8 - TIZER

Tizer is a unique & iconic British soft drink that is popular due to its mouth-watering mix of citrus and red fruits.

On opening the bottle, the aroma of a floral citrus type scent wafted in front of me. It was a very refreshing scent, enough to make my mouth water. There were hints of lemons and limes, and I picked out the aroma of maybe red cola or American cream soda.

On the Inhale, a zingy citrus flavour coated my palate. Sweet zesty Lemon and fresh tart lime were at the forefront of the inhale. Sharp, bright and extremely refreshing, with a certain sweetness. It was sweet but not overly sweet. I could taste an underlying spiciness coating my tastebuds with maybe a hint of nutmeg.

On the exhale, a sensual, smooth, fruity mix of luscious red berries, coating my lips with hints of Strawberries, raspberries and a sharp twist of citrus, making the juice come to life. I am left guessing what the secret ingredients are. This is another complex juice as Barr&C0. Uk, won't divulge the flavours. They say they are a carefully guarded secret. Another nice e-liquid from Sharon and Flemming.

Summary:- This flavour definitely brings your tastebuds alive. It's invigorating, fresh and very palatable. If you enjoy a zesty berry blend then this one is for you.

Would I buy this e-liquid ................ Yes
Would I change anything about it .................. No
Vapour Production ...............  Very good
Throathit .......... good
ADV ............ Yes
