V2 E-Liquid Intro
In this article we take a look at the V2 e-liquids and try 6 of their different flavours. Thanks very much to Paul at V2 UK for sending us some samples to review!
The flavours we tried were the following: Vanilla, Peppermint, Grape, Cherry, Green Tea Menthol and Coffee. We tried all the flavours in the 1.2% nicotine option.
About V2 E-Liquids
V2 pride themselves on their “platinum” e-liquid range, so we were excited to give their e-liquids a try. V2 offer 12 different flavours in 5 different nicotine levels (0, 0.6, 1.2, 1.8 and 2.4).
V2 are very transparent when it comes to their e-liquids and put a lot emphasis on quality and quality control. All the e-liquid bottles come with a clearly labelled batch number and expiry date. You can enter your batch number into the field on this page: batch-testing and it will send you a PDF of that batch report. Unlike a lot of other e-liquid manufacturers V2 clearly state exactly what is in their e-liquids, including the flavours and sweeteners they use. To find out more check out their full ingredient list.
For those who want a specific tobacco flavour to mimic a particular brand of cigarettes they have been smoking, V2 have done a handy chart to recommend which of the three tobacco flavours you should be using. We tried the Congress Tobacco flavour when we tried the EX series and it’s a smooth almost slightly sweet tobacco taste.
The V2 bottles are really impressive and very eye catching. They come in either 10ml samples packs or the standard 25ml and 50ml bottles. The bottles feature a child proof lid and a handy dripper to easily drip e-liquids into your carts or tanks.
Our E-Liquid Review
Green Tea Menthol
We couldn’t really taste the green tea much on this e-liquid and it was more of a dominant menthol taste. The menthol flavour itself was pretty good, so if you enjoy menthol, then this flavour could be worth a try.
This was one of our favourite flavours (3rd favourite). We are a bit biased as we do like the fruity flavours a lot, but this one was really nice. It was quite a sweet cherry taste and reminded me of the cherry Haribo sweets! This is a good flavour if you have a bit of a sweet tooth.
I liked this flavour more than my brother, who wasn’t the biggest fan of this one. Again it is quite sweet and reminded me of the Jolly Rancher candy you can get in the US. It won’t be for everyone and as a I mentioned my brother didn’t really enjoy it as much as I did, but I do have much more of a sweet tooth than him!
Vanilla was our favourite flavour that we tried. The Vanilla flavour was nice and not as sweet as some of the other sweet flavours. This makes it really enjoyable and something we could use as an all-day vape. This was a great flavour and we would definitely recommend giving it a try.
My brother drinks a lot of coffee and it came as a surprise when he didn’t really enjoy this flavour. He said it tasted like a coffee you would get from a coffee machine in the office. Funnily enough I dislike coffee a lot, but found this flavour quite enjoyable. It was quite sweet and perhaps even had a scent of caramel to it, which I quite enjoyed. Perhaps those who are used to high quality coffees, won’t get quite the same satisfaction from this coffee flavour.
Peppermint was our second favourite flavour. This reminded us of the standard Wrigleys Spearmint chewing gum. It is a really nice peppermint flavour, which leaves your mouth nice and fresh after vaping it!
Note: The 1.2% nicotine level had a really good throat hit to it and the vapor production on the Kanger Aerotank mini was really good.
The quality of the e-liquids and transparency in their testing and ingredients was something we thought was very impressive. As a vaper you want to know what is in your e-liquid. Well done V2 for being transparent with their e-liquids and quality.
The flavours we tried tasted pretty good. These weren’t our favorite tasting e-liquids ever, but they were not bad. I like that they have 3 different tobacco flavors to suit all kinds of smokers. I would perhaps like to see some more sweet and fruity flavours or blends of different flavours, as the range is somewhat limited compared to other big e-cigarette brands.
I couldn’t find out what PG/VG ratios were in the e-liquids, but from the throat hit and vapor production I would guess around 60/40 PG vs VG. *Update: You can find out how much PG is used in the batch report, but you won’t be able to see the exact blend of PG/VG.
Overall we were impressed with V2’s e-liquid and the quality of their e-juice. I would definitely give their e-liquid sampler pack a go to if you are looking for a high quality mouth to lung e-liquid.
