For those of you who may have missed my recent review of Johnson Creek’s Black Cherry e-liquid, I am currently at the beginning of a string of Johnson Creek Smoke Juice reviews. I bought a bottle of everything, and I’ll be tasting my way through the company’s various e-liquids over the coming weeks. Our subject for today is Spiced Apple Cider, a PG/VG blend from Johnson Creek’s original line of smoke juices.
My first thought upon smelling this e-liquid is that it reminds me a bit of Cinnapple, a limited-edition e-liquid that Volcano sold during the 2010 holiday season. However, upon tasting Spiced Apple Cider the differences become clear. Where Cinnapple definitely leaned more toward the sweet end of the flavor spectrum, Spiced Apple Cider has warm notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and possibly a bit of black pepper. I am reminded a bit of apple crisp, but the sweetness is definitely muted enough here for me not to think of Spiced Apple Cider exclusively as a dessert vape.
Like the other Johnson Creek e-liquids that I have tried so far, I found Spiced Apple Cider to be rather powerful, delivering plenty of throat hit and leaving me a bit woozy when I vaped it too quickly. I definitely still have the opinion that Johnson Creek is a great e-liquid provider to check out if you are one of the many e-cig users out there who craves throat hit. Johnson Creek doesn’t sell e-liquids at the 16 mg nicotine level. Normally, I would tell anyone accustomed to 16 mg to step up to the 18 mg level when ordering from a company that doesn’t offer 16 mg liquids just to avoid the potential nicotine fits that might occur at the 11 mg level; with Johnson Creek, though, I’d have to recommend buying 11 mg unless you are a throat hit fanatic. Of course, that opinion might change as I move beyond the fruit flavors and start trying the tobaccos and menthols.
Fruit flavors are rarely my everyday preference with vaping; I tend to spend most of my time with menthol and tobacco e-liquids and save the fruit flavors for those occasional times when I crave a change. So, for me, Spiced Apple Cider wouldn’t be an e-liquid that I would use every day. However, this e-liquid tastes a bit like vaping Autumn, and I found it quite nice. If you enjoyed Volcano’s Cinnapple e-liquid, I think you’ll find this one superior.
