For those of us that have been vaping for more than a few years, we can sometimes lose sight of the fact that this industry is still in the beginning stage. With start-up costs being practically nothing, e-liquid vendors are popping up left and right, and as a result, when they see a vendor with a successful flavor, they copy it, with varying degrees of success of course. Obvious examples of this are practically everywhere, with countless vendors offering green dyed anise/citrus juice, and others mixing graham cracker tobacco blends with some type of play on the Boba’s name.
In an industry surrounded by young companies, each trying to capitalize on another’s success; it’s refreshing to see a vendor that is stabilized and content with the way they are as a company. Cyclops Vapor is the company I am referring to, and they are still one of the best e-juice stores out there.
While I enjoy all types of juice in what little personal vaping time I have, fruits and desserts are almost always occupying a good portion of my rotation. Flavors like upside-down pineapple cake, apple pie, and this berry cobbler juice that bring two categories together, tend to strike a chord with me (although that has no effect on the outcome of these reviews). Regardless of my personal tastes, the Berry Cobbler from Cyclops Vapor is downright delicious.
Flavor of the e-Liquids:
The flavor of the e-juice is fairly consistent from the inhale to the finish. It is flush with the delicious, sweet taste of dried blueberries. Whether you call it pie, crumble, or in this instance, Crumble Pie, the result is the same. The flavor of the berry cobbler is known as a slow-cooked, caramelized, complex composite of bright highs and deep lows, a little sharp, with a nice hit of acidity.
The lighter complimentary notes of cobbler crust and brown sugar (and maybe even a very light touch of cinnamon) only serve to enhance the juicy berry. The big, bold, impressive flavor easily deserves the spotlight; it’s just that good. Adding additional components like more crust, or whipped cream would only detract from heart and soul of this e-liquid, which is the berry. Berry Cobbler also contained a trace of a medicinal note, but it’s also not particularly difficult to overlook, and I was able to do away the overwhelming majority of it via an additional night of topless (cap and dripper removed) steeping.
The depth of the Berry is easily the most impressive thing about the juice, almost perfectly mimicking the flavor of blueberry pie filling, and while some may prefer more pie crust in the blend, I enjoyed it as is, with the berry front and center.
Testing the e-Liquids in my Lab:
I spent most of my time with this juice using my Duke mod topped with a Helios at 38w. It can handle a bit more heat, and by pushing the envelope, you can certainly obliterate any of the leftover boozy tones. I found the flavor to be ideal, for my tastes, in that 36-38 watt range, give or take a few watts.
When I moved it over to the ProVari, I was not terribly surprised to find that the flavor diminishes, but less than I had anticipated, still producing that overwhelming sweet, juicy, baked berry tone. With that device, topped with a standard high end, bridgeless 510 dripping atomizers, I liked this juice at 9.6w or 4.9v on a 2.5Ω atomizer.
Throat hit & vapor production:
It doesn’t pack in a massive throat hit, but vapor production is quite good, and the flavor is just exquisite. Just be sure to give it a good long steep with the cap and dripper removed for the final day or two.
