Vaping Diaries #45: Heather’s Heavenly Vapes Review II

Last year, Raina and I checked out three tobacco e-liquids from Heather’s Heavenly Vapes and walked away impressed. I’ve had a few HHV juices since then and really enjoyed them. Here’s a review of three HHV flavors: Cinful Apple, Heavenly Waffles, and Georgia Peach Tobacco. One of these juices was brilliant, one was very good, and one was my first HHV disappointment. Here’s the breakdown and steeping notes.

Cinful Apple: A lovely, natural apple flavor dominates the taste of this juice, complemented by a bit of cinnamon. A few vendors make apple-cinnamon e-liquids, but many of them taste the way an apple air freshener smells. This isn’t one of those juices. This is a delicious mix that reminded me of baked apples and spiced apple cider. I liked this one a lot.

Heavenly Waffles: This e-liquid is available with a variety of options, including whipped cream, extra syrup, extra butter, and various fruit/nut toppings. I chose extra maple syrup and whipped cream. While it was a very sweet vape, it also had a surprising amount of complexity. You can taste the individual flavors in this mix — waffle, maple syrup, butter, etc. It comes together brilliantly. I would order this juice again in a heartbeat, but probably get the standard maple syrup level and extra butter. While it was excellent the way I ordered it, it’s too sweet for an all-day vape and more suitable for dessert.

Georgia Peach Tobacco: On paper, this e-liquid should have kicked all kinds of ass. HHV makes great tobacco e-liquids and those cats are from Georgia, so they’re certified peach experts (I believe the documentation is posted on its web site). While you can definitely taste a great peach flavor and a nice tobacco, the flavors clashed and left me with an unenjoyable vape. Individually, the flavors would have been great, but together it didn’t work for me. It’s like they were fighting in my mouth. Considering everything else I’ve had from HHV has been very good to outstanding, I was really disappointed in this juice. That said, it was somewhat comforting to know that HHV is mortal and not everything it makes is wonderful for me.

Steeping Notes
On the advice of Wlad from Ahlusion, I’ve been trying a new steeping method starting December 27, 2012. When the e-liquids arrive, I leave them uncapped for five minutes. Previously, I left them uncapped for about two days. After the liquids are given a few minutes to oxidize, the caps are put back on. The bottles are shaken every day for at least two weeks before vaping.

Review Process (Updated February 17, 2013)RPad.TV e-liquid reviews focus on the flavor of the e-liquids, since throat hit and vapor production can be altered by the PG/VG ratio and nicotine level selected. Each juice is vaped over a period of days in an atomizer, a cartomizer/tank setup, and a clearomizer. The exception is naturally-extracted tobacco (NET) juices; since those are known to clog up cartomizers quickly, those are vaped in atomizers and clearomizers.
