Volcano Lava Line E-Liquid Intro
We take a look at the signature Lava Line e-liquid range by Volcano e-cigs. Volcano e-cigs have completely transformed their website in recent times and stock some really interesting products. They have a great looking DNA 200 box mod coming out called the Lavabox. Check out our DNA 200 guide for more info on that one.
Thanks to Volcano for sending these through for review!

Our E-Liquid Review
“Journey to the Hawaiian Islands with the Diamond Head signature Hawaiian inspired e-liquid mixture. This flavor begins with the taste of sun-kissed guava, tangy and sweet. The flavor deepens with touches of succulent orange and ends with the richness of golden sugared passion fruit.”
On first impressions quite a tangy vape and notable flavor from the Guava. However, on exhale the flavor becomes slightly less tangy. I can definitely taste the Guava and the orange, but not getting much passion fruit from this one. The flavor is not too fruity and over the top, but instead quite a clean, but yet complex flavor. I am not the biggest fan of tangy/citrus flavors, so this one isn’t for me. However, the Diamond Head is a very tasty flavor combination and anyone liking a smooth tangy/citrus vape will enjoy this one.
“Find yourself sitting at a café outdoors along the Canals of Venice as you experience Vesuvius our e-liquid inspired by this astounding region. The flavor of freshly baked Italian biscotti open up the palate enriched by a depth of vanilla extracts and garnished with silky white chocolate. Warm notes of grated hazelnut and dried cherries finish off this elegantly blended, bold flavor.”
This e-liquid tasted a lot different to how it smelled. I was expecting the Biscotti to be much more prominent based on the smell of this one. However, the cherry came through as the more dominant flavor. I would have preferred this juice not to have that cherry taste to it. I loved the biscotti and the vanilla, but would have preferred those flavors on their own with the white chocolate undertones. Again the flavor combo was very smooth and clean. Overall because of the cherry not really an ADV for me, but a tasty complex flavor nonetheless.
“Explore the enigmatic glacial green hills of Iceland through Grimsvotn, our e-liquid created in the essence of this country. The taste of fresh brambleberry skyr, an iconic berry dessert of this region delights your palate to then plunge your taste buds in the rich notes of warm vanilla cream. Melded perfectly with a tantalizing bite of icy mint that lingers throughout.”
This was my favorite flavor of the Volcano Lava Line. This was a very interesting flavor combination. I didn’t think I was going to like it because of the icy mint, but the icy mint is just a very subtle refreshing after tone. The “berry dessert” tasted really yummy and appealed to my taste buds. You can also pick out the Vanilla notes as well, which makes this juice a vanilla berry dessert delight, topped off with a refreshing subtle icy mint. A really unusually but enjoyable vape!
“Travel to the fragrant hills of Honshu, Japan with Fuji, our e-liquid inspired by this spectacular country. A bouquet of ripened mandarin oranges awakens your taste buds, and then delivers the refreshing taste of candied hibiscus and touches of aromatic cherry blossoms for a fruity, well-balanced and sensual flavor.”
A nice mix of mandarin and cherry with subtle undertones of hibiscus. If you like cherry or mandarin you will love this flavor. However, as mentioned above I am neither the biggest fan of cherry or mandarin when it comes to e-juices! Nevertheless, if those flavors do take your fancy, then this well-balanced blend is definitely worth a try alongside the Diamond Head, which was quite similar to this blend in taste. This is quite a refreshing flavor and one that I could see working well in the Summer. I am glad they didn’t try and incorporate Sushi into this e-juice, as that alongside Kobe Beef would have been my immediate thought when thinking of flavors in Japan!
Volcano has really gone for some really interesting flavors with their signature line. The flavors are not your standard creamy, dessert type flavors that you are seeing a lot of these days. Instead they have introduced some unique complex flavors. Kudos to them for doing so and they have definitely made some tasty blends. The flavors all had a very clean smooth taste to them and produced impressive clouds for just being 50/50 VG/PG. The flavors were also not overly sweet or sickly.
Whilst not all the flavors were for me, there will no doubt be some vapers out there who will enjoy these e-juices. If you like orange then the Diamond Head and Fuji flavors will be for you. The Grimsvotn was unique and tasty and the Vesuvius was very Italian.
The packaging and bottling was very nice and I liked the concept of the different Volcanoes across the world.
Overall if you are looking for a unique set of complex flavors that vape well and are a bit out of the ordinary, then take a look at some of the flavor descriptions above to see if they could be for you. Volcano also have a good range of standard flavors and some nice hardware, so be sure to check that out as well.
