DRPN Donuts Intro
DRPN Donuts is a somewhat new ejuice line from DRPNvape.com, a solid looking liquid company that’s released three offerings in the range of… you guessed it, donuts! Apparently, DRPNvape made quite a few vapers happy at last year’s ECC.
Let’s dig in and see if they have the same effect on me.
- Price: $25 for a 30 mL
- PG/VG: 40% PG/ 60% VG
- Nicotine options: 0, 3, 6 mg/mL
For this review I will be vaping DRPN Donuts out of my Sub-Zero RDA on my RX200. I built the RDA with a dual-coil macro build, using 24 gauge kanthal and a 3|4 wrap on a 3/16 drill bit with a resistance of .23Ω. I have the RX200 set to 90 watts.
Our E-Liquid Review
DRPN Donuts Bearclaw
A glazed apple pastry with a pinch of cinnamon
This is the one I just KNEW was going to be my favorite, and it was for a little while.
Bearclaw is a semi-sweet e-liquid with subtle baked apple notes and a light and pronounced puff pastry-type mouthfeel—and just a smidgen of a cinnamon note. The apple is not loud or necessarily prominent, but it does taste baked. The cinnamon is also well done as it’s not a cinnamldehyde, fiery type of cinnamon—It’s a real bakery cinnamon note. The ‘glazed’ aspect is not really there, but that’s just me being critical based on the description. Even without being able to taste the ‘glazed’ part, I think this ejuice is well done, nicely mixed and quite tasty!
DRPN Donuts Blueberry
True Blueberry Glazed Donut with a savory taste
Blueberry is quite difficult to pull off in eliquid and I wasn’t expecting a lot from this bottle. But after having this liquid for a few days, I came to really appreciate Blueberry Donut from DRPN Vape.
DRPN Donuts Blueberry to me does taste like a blueberry donut, but without the ‘glaze’. The blueberry does not jump out immediately, but after a few days of vaping it I can easily identify that baked-‘til-exploded blueberry compote flavor against a savory yet subtle cake note. Yum!
This e-juice did not ‘wow’ me at first, and I have no idea why because it is very good. Maybe just a few days has let the flavor ‘steep’ a little. Dunno. Give it a chance though and don’t judge it too quickly.
DRPN Donuts Strawberry
Strawberry Frosted Donut w/ Sprinkles
Everyone loves strawberry eliquid, right? Well, not me. I don’t dislike them; they are just generally okay to me. This one will go into that rare collection of strawberry liquids that I do REALLY like!
DRPN Donuts Strawberry is a strawberry-forward tasting liquid with very subtle hints of a donut. I’d be lying if said I could taste a ‘donut’ without the power of suggestion . . . and the sprinkles is even more of a stretch. To my buds it could pass as a strawberry cereal eliquid (which I am sure many would love!).
But, if you like sweet strawberry liquids in general, this one is one you should consider. Overall, the flavor saturation in DRPN Donuts Strawberry is the richest of all three flavors—and I didn’t need the label to tell me this is strawberry! That was obvious as soon I took a whiff.
This is damned good eliquid right here!
Donuts, donuts, donuts! Donuts are everywhere now!!!
These types of flavors are all the rage and like any other flavors carried by a host of vendors, some are good and many are not. I’ve tried countless donut/pastry flavors from other vendors and I honestly wasn’t expecting too much from the DRPN Donuts line. Much to my surprise, all the flavors are tasty! And although a couple were a hair outside of the bullseye with their descriptions, they are all mixes that I can and will vape!
At first, Bearclaw was easily my favorite, and then it was Strawberry . . . but now I can’t put down Blueberry. The best way I could recommend one of these to anyone is to say go for whatever has the fruit that you generally like. For me that would’ve meant going for Bearclaw, but I am happy that DRPNVape sent me all three because I would’ve missed out on Strawberry and Blueberry (which I ended up liking more than Bearclaw!).
A final word about these eliquids: Being a 60% VG blend, you may experience more of a throat hit that you would generally get from high-vg liquids, but I have had no problems with them. I think these flavors would go well in a tank or a dripper, but I have to drip my DRPNDonuts!
