Von Vape Elite Drip E-Liquid Intro
Vonvape Premium Black Label E-Liquids are made by a company that seems intent on selling professional-grade e-liquids that are direct and discernible.
Made out of an ISO 7 clean room (pics are on the site), Vonvape shows itself to be above the fray with regard to providing their liquid’s test results of the non-detection of diketones—diacetyland acetyl propionyl–and they even have a test result to prove their nicotine accuracy. These qualities are not standard in our industry, but it’s becoming a commonplace for some customers to have concerns about these things and it behooves vendors to approach these concerns the way Vonvape has: head on!
All the glass bottles come with child-protection eye-droppers and are sealed in tamper-evident plastic. All pertinent information is on the bottles including warnings, nicotine content, solvent content (100% VG), etc.
Vonvape’s Elite Drip Line
- Peach (now called Imperial)
- Red Licorice (now called Royal)
- Strawberry Lemonade (now called Noble)
- Vanilla & Caramel (now called Kingly)
Note: My bottles are from before the name changes, so the bottles will now be shipped out with the new names. The flavors are the same, but the names have changed.
All liquids were tested out of the Manta V2 RDA by JD Tech with a 0.4Ω dual-coil build (2×7 wrap with 26 gauge kanthal) on a JKuro mechanical mod.
Our E-Liquid Review
“Imperial has a smooth, sweet, yet bold refreshing natural peach flavor & bouquet that tastes and smells like you just picked a succulent, juicy Georgia peach from the orchard today. Take your time and enjoy this fresh, fruity and distinctly perfectly mellow flavor, relax close your eyes and enjoy.”
Accuracy: 9 out of 10.
What can I say about this flavor? It’s peach with notes of peach! I am an avid DIYer, so I can say with certainty that peach is a difficult flavor to nail without off-notes of peach candy flavoring. This liquid does a fairly decent job of making an uncomplicated, true-to-life, balanced fruit flavor without it being cloyingly sweet or obnoxious.
Flavor Saturation: 7 out of 10
The rating on this one may seem one way that I don’t intend it to seem. By a “7”, I mean that Vonvape accomplished their target-flavor with what must’ve been a measured approach to an actual peach. Peaches are not as densely packed with flavor as much as they are aroma, so this liquid should follow those same rules. Imperial is bright, refreshing and sweet, yet light with a smidgen of tart—and the aroma is pure peach! Imperial tastes to me to be a semi-mature peach. Not too hard and not too soft.
At first I wasn’t too keen to dive into this flavor, likely because I’ve had such bad experiences with peach favored eliquids. But I do like peaches! So having to drip this for the review proved to be of surprising enjoyment. I suspect that if you like peaches, not just peach candy-flavoring, you should enjoy this. I feel that Vonvape could’ve added a secondary and even a tertiary flavor to round out the peach and to amplify the overall experience, but as it is, Imperial works.
Royal (Red Licorice)
“Royal is a tribute to the Original Twizzlers; a perfect blend of sweet and tart strawberries & cherries, with just the right amount of raspberry, twisted together flawlessly. The bold flavor and bouquet of this eLiquid bring back the innocent pleasure and experience of the candy, minus the calories and cavities.”
Accuracy: 8.5 out of 10
To me, Royal tastes like a deconstructed Twizzler vs. a straightforward replication. I feel that the nose of the Royal is quite accurate, but the flavor itself (the vape) is just a bit outside. Its flavor is very tasty and very close to Twizzlers, but I wouldn’t be able to pinpoint the flavor without reading the description; though after knowing what it was supposed to be, it made sense. So it’s in the ball park, but not a home-run. Maybe a triple?
Flavor Saturation: 8 out of 10
It’s fairly packed with flavor, but to me it’s not quite saturated enough. I think its flavor, to be knocked out of the park, would need to be in the 9.5 range of flavor saturation to leave no question as for whom Royal was pinch hitting for.
I do enjoy it. I really enjoy it! It reminiscent enough of a Twizzler-type flavor and good enough on its own that I can give it a pass for not being just a bit more packed with flavor.
Noble (Strawberry Lemonade)
“Noble is a balanced blend of crisp, tart lemons, muddled with refreshing, perfectly ripe, sweet strawberries right from the field. You will appreciate the careful balance of the sweet, yet tart flavor and bouquet as you enjoy this delicious, refreshing drink. Of course you can savor and relive the fun, long after summer is gone.”
Accuracy: 9 out of 10
I’d bet that a good percentage of people would be able to immediately link this liquid to its intended taste without even seeing the description. It tastes and smells exactly like strawberry lemonade. It’s a bit on the tart side, whereas I would like mine sweeter, but it is quite accurate nevertheless.
Flavor Saturation: 9 out 10
A perfect amount of flavor saturation for the target taste. For strawberry lemonade, I don’t think any more or any less would’ve proved as successful as this percentage of flavoring and I give credit to the mixer for getting this one right.
I do wish Noble was a little sweeter, but even with the predominant tartness, it’s still got enough sweetness to cut through. I enjoy this but it’s just a tad too tart for me.
Kingly (Vanilla Caramel)
“Kingly is rich in flavor and bouquet. It is a perfectly balanced blend of fresh scraped vanilla bean, bourbon & smooth, creamy, salty natural caramel with just a touch of smoky oak. The simplicity that creates perfection here cannot be overstated, Kingly has become a fan favorite, not to sweet and one we dare say is possibly one of the best eLiquids created.”
Accuracy: 10 out of 10
Out of all Vonvape’s descriptions, including Imperial, this one is by far the most spot-on. It is very uniquely mixed, well-balanced, tasty and intriguing for a seemingly easy combo. Caramel and vanilla is a classic combination in vaping (more often paired with tobacco) and one that is often too simple in taste, but Vonvape (IMO) succeeded with this offering in taking a simple combination beyond its simplicity. The smoky oak flavor (maybe Oakwood by FA?) and touch of bourbon is a knockout addition by adding enough intrigue without making the flavor odd.
Flavor Saturation: 10 out of 10
This flavor should not be light and it isn’t! It is rich, dense and yet not overbearing. If I had made this flavor in my own DIY, I’d be quite proud of it. Being able to saturate a vanilla and camel without the usage of diketones (Diacetyl & Acetyl Propionyl) is a feat in and of itself. Kudos to the mixer.
If I were to recommend a flavor from Vonavape, this would be it. It’s really a fine mixing job and I’d suggest to Vonvape to use this approach with their other flavors. I feel like Imperial would be more imperial if it had more complimentary notes in the way Kingly does.
