Today I bring you Intensive Cloud Unit, ICU Premium Eliquid - an American company with a three juice line – Pulse, Red Vein and Flatline.
On receiving these juices I was really impressed with the packaging, a 30ml bottle comes in, what I would call, a plastic vitamin tub with child safety cap; you also get a sticker and a ball of cotton. The 5ml samples come in syringes, this is not only extremely cool, but very clever packaging - something I’ve not seen before.
Scent: sweet apples, like the aroma from a glass of apple juice.
Flavour: with pursed lips and squinted eyes, this juice delivers a sour apple on the inhale which is then taken over by an outburst of luscious sweet apples on the exhale, very much like a glass of cloudy apple juice.
This juice is outstanding, I believe that there are a couple of different apple notes to create this heavenly vape. The cross over from sour to sweet makes this sensationally addictive and I just want more. Is this an all-day vape? Most certainly it is, I can’t keep my hands off it!
Flavour: I was a little concerned after smelling this juice as I am not a fan of liquorice in any form. But, amazingly, this juice gives me something I’ve obviously been craving, because once I dripped it I loved it.
I do enjoy moments when something comes along that changes your perceptions. On the inhale you get a wonderful fresh strawberry that coats the mouth and then it is joined by liquorice, soft and smooth on the exhale leaving your mouth sweet. Very much like the sweet red liquorice laces you can get. Liquorice can leave a lasting taste in the mouth, this juice does not. I find this a delightfully balanced juice and not too overpowering in any department, making it a superb all-day vape.
Scent: chocolate with mint tones
Flavour: this juice put a smile on my face, reminding me of an old favourite chocolate biscuit I used to have as a child – the Lyon’s Viscount.
A biscuit base with a mint cream topping covered in chocolate. I had to go and find out if they still produce these - and they do!
On the inhale you get a rich chocolate biscuit which is then joined by a lovely creamy mint on the exhale, finishing off by leaving a very pleasant chocolate taste on the palate. It gives the sensation that the biscuit and minty cream are encapsulated within the chocolate. This very clever juice is not quite an all-day vape for me, but undoubtedly is very moreish.
