Today I am reviewing three e-liquids, sent to me free for the purpose of review from Sharon and Flemming over at L & T (Formerly LTecigs).

The e-liquids I am reviewing are :
Black Cherry - (12MG) 50/50 PG/VG - Fruit Style E-Liquid
Parliament -  (12MG) 50/50 PG/VG - Tobacco Style E-Liquid
Dark Fire - (12MG) 50/50 PG/VG - Tobacco Style E-Liquid

All E-Liquids are 50VG/50PG Mix for the best combination of taste, throat hit and vapour.
E-liquids on their website come in 0, 3, 6, 12, 18, & 24mg.
You have the choice of 10ml & 30ml bottles from £2.40 for 10ml and from £5.40 for 30ml.
All bottles come with child safety caps, tactile warnings and use by dates etc. The labels are all clearly printed and easily read.
My opinion of the e-liquids I am reviewing today are my own, and will be my true and honest opinion as always. Taste is very subjective and what I dislike you may enjoy, and vice versa. Remember e-liquid flavours vary depending on the power, resistance and airflow of your chosen devices. Different setups give you different flavours at lower and higher temperatures, so please keep that in mind.

Today for all three e-liquids I will be using my IPV5 with twisted messes rda using Clapton single coil reading 0.4 ohm for Direct Lung Inhale, & my Innokin Coolfire with Nature Vape tank reading 1.4ohm for Mouth to Lung inhale. Both give excellent vapour and flavour.


JUICE #1: BLACK CHERRY (Being sold in SALE section - under 'Liquid Bundles')

► Black Cherry - Fruity Style Liquid
► Primary Flavours - Cherries
► Colour of liquid - clear light yellow
► MG - 12mg (12%)
► Average price - 10ml £2.40, 30ml £5.40
► Bottle Type - clear plastic
► Set Up - IPV5 Box Mod with Twisted Messes RDA using Clapton single coil reading 0.4ohm for Direct Lung Inhale, & my Innokin Coolfire Box mod with Nature Vape tank reading 1.4ohm for Mouth to Lung Inhale.
► PG/VG Ratio - 50PG/50VG

► On opening the bottle, the deliciously sweet aroma of  juicy sweet cherries fanned from the bottle, giving off a distinctive sweet cherry scent. It reminded me of almonds and marzipan. It's fragrance was fresh and appealing.
► On the Inhale, the initial hit was semi sweet and beautifully balanced. It had a slight woody taste, and to me, had the resemblance of dark Morello Cherries. The flavour was clean and well pronounced. It wasn't overpowering or sickly like some cherry juices can be. At the height of the inhale there was a slight tartness and an undertone of vanilla, but this was very minimalistic and hardly there.
 ► On the exhale, the cherry notes were smooth and subtle. The juice had a very moreish taste and a minimalistic sweet and sour nuance. The palate exhibited both candied sweets and fresh fruit, making this e-liquid a very enjoyable vape.  It flowed over my palate with no effort at all.
 ►Summary: The e-liquid was perfectly balanced. There were no strange after tastes, no chemical smell or taste. A simple flavour and a satisfying vape.

► Would I buy this e-liquid .......... Yes I would.
► Would I change anything about it ......... No, it's fine the way it is.
► Vapour Production ......... Excellent vapour production for a 50/50 blend
► Throat hit ......... Direct Lung Inhale -  12mg is too high for a DLI. The preferred percentages are 0, 3 & 6mg with high VG content.
► Throat hit ......... Mouth To Lung Inhale - Smooth with a solid throat hit.
► ADV ......... Yes, I would add this to my daily rotation.
► Aftertaste ......... A subtle cherry taste that lingers on your palate for moments afterwards.
► Final Thoughts ......... Another nice juice from L & T. It's sweet but not overly sweet and soothing to the palate. I have tried a lot of cherry e-liquids on my vaping journey and L & T's cherry flavours are on top everytime.


JUICE #2: PARLIAMENT (ON SALE) (10ML - £1.50 / 30ML - £3.00)

► Parliament - Tobacco Style Liquid
► Primary Flavours -
► Colour of liquid - Amber
► MG - 12mg (12%)
► Average price - 10ml £2.40, 30ml £5.40
► Bottle Type - Clear Plastic
► Set Up - IPV5 Box Mod with Twisted Messes RDA using Clapton single coil reading 0.5ohm for Direct Lung Inhale, & my Innokin Coolfire Box mod with Nature Vape tank reading 1.4ohm for Mouth to Lung Inhale.
► PG/VG Ratio - 50PG/50VG

► On opening the bottle, a light earthy scent wafted from the bottle. The aroma was subtle with the slightest hint of liquorice. Very light but very pleasant to the nose.
► On the Inhale, I had feelings of uncertainty with this e-liquid. The flavour wasn't strong, but still complex enough not to selectively choose what was in 'Parliament'.   It had a minimalistic background note of chocolate, but again extremely mild with the slightest touch of sweetness.  I couldn't taste any liquorice, spices, nuts, caramels,  citrus, aniseed, vanillas, heavy sweeteners, i.e. honey, marshmallow, syrups etc. or an ashy generic tobacco taste like some tobaccos have. There was nothing noticeable in the e-liquid to give me a clue as to what it was. Difficult to describe but at the same time very enjoyable to vape.                                                                                                           ►On the exhale, the vape was very soft, smooth and mellow. Expertly blended and clean tasting, but also very difficult to describe. What I got from the juice was exactly what I'd look for in a tobacco e-liquid. I dislike strong tobacco flavours and flavours that get sickly or cloying after a short period of time vaping them, or any tobacco flavours with that ashy generic dirty taste. I enjoy flavours that have minimal to no flavour at all. One that I can vape constantly all day long and never get tired of. This e-liquid falls into that category. It is the perfect all day vape and one I can't seem to put down. It tastes plain and very light, but at the same time very enjoyable. Hopefully L & T will continue selling this e-liquid as I have grown quite partial to this one. If your flavour profile is similar to mine, try it, you won't be disappointed.
► Summary: I loved this e-liquid. There was no dirty neutral base or ashy taste, and no chemical aftertaste. A really nice tobacco flavour.

► Would I buy this e-liquid ......... Yes definitely.
► Would I change anything about it ......... No it's perfect for me the way it is.
► Vapour Production ......... Great for a 50VG/50PG blend.
► Throat hit ......... Direct Lung Inhale -  12mg is too high for a DLI. The preferred percentages are 0, 3 & 6mg with high VG content.
► Throat hit ......... Mouth To Lung Inhale - Smooth with a solid throat hit.
► ADV .........  Yes definitely.
► Aftertaste ......... There isn't much of an aftertaste, but the mouth feel is satisfying and fullfilling.
► Final Thoughts .........  I really enjoyed this juice. It's one I will be buying often. The bottle I have won't last long.

JUICE #3: DARK FIRE - 10ML £2.40 / 30ML £5.40

► Dark Fire - Tobacco Style Liquid
► Primary Flavours - earthy, woody, smoky, toffee, grassy, burnt liquorice, cocoa.
► Colour of liquid - Light Amber clear
► MG - 12mg (12%)
► Average price - 10ml £2.40, 30ml £5.40
► Bottle Type - Clear Plastic
► Set Up - IPV5 Box Mod with Twisted Messes RDA using Clapton single coil reading 0.5ohm for Direct Lung Inhale, & my Innokin Coolfire Box mod with Nature Vape tank reading 1.4ohm for Mouth to Lung Inhale.
► PG/VG Ratio - 50PG/50VG

► On opening the bottle, a strong cocoa/toffee aroma wafted in the air. It was dark and deep with an earthy, woody, smoky scent. It had extremely pungent undertones which I didn't particularly like. A bonfire aroma filled the room leaving an unpleasant burnt liquorice odour with notes of brewers yeast. I hoped it didn't taste the way it smelled.
► On the Inhale, I could taste a charred wood type taste with undertones of cut grass and a slight toffee edge at the back of the inhale. Surprisingly enough it was really quite nice to vape. Quite intense for my liking, but pleasant just the same. A medium to strong tobacco, packed full of flavour. Exceedingly rich and naturally sweet. A whole host of flavours have gone into making this liquid which keeps the juice interesting, as you get a different taste with every vape.
 ► On the exhale, the flavour came through a little salty with overtones of popcorn or cinder toffee (aka puff candy). In the background I could taste a burnt liquorice taste on my palate, the same as I experienced when I opened the bottle. A very strong cut grass taste was present at the top of the exhale, leaving a bittersweet taste in my mouth afterwards.
► Summary:- The taste of 'Dark Fire' was much better than the aroma. It was a pleasant enough vape, but not an all day for me. I didn't particularly enjoy the aftertaste it left in my mouth and as everyone knows, I prefer lighter tobacco vapes with little to no flavour. I found it to be quite bitter at the end of the exhale.

► Would I buy this e-liquid ......... No. It's a pleasant enough vape, sadly it's not one for me.
► Would I change anything about it ......... I would prefer a milder version.
► Vapour Production ......... Excellent for a 50/50 blend.
► Throat hit ......... Direct Lung Inhale -  12mg is too high for a DLI. The preferred percentages are 0, 3 & 6mg with high VG content.
► Throat hit ......... Mouth To Lung Inhale - Smooth with a solid throat hit. Very satisfying.
► ADV .........  No. The flavour is too overpowering for me.
► Aftertaste ......... Very subtle. Lingers on the palate for a short time after exhale.
► Final Thoughts ......... To me there was too much going on in this e-liquid. It was quite a strong vape. I've heard it's one of the top tobacco flavours amongst the vaping community so if you prefer stronger tasting tobacco flavours give this one a try.
