Vaping Diaries #132: Majestic Vapors Review

As a comic-book fanboy and Star Wars nerd, I was really looking forward to trying some of Majestic Vapors’ “Geek Line” of e-liquids. I recently vaped Majestic Vapors’ Vader’s Vengeance, Fant4stic Four, and Lantern’s Light. Before I get to the flavor breakdowns, let’s chat about the company for a bit.

Majestic Vapors is a retail shop in the Niagara Falls area. The company offers a wide variety of juices — some straightforward blends and some interesting mixes. The Geek Line uses playful references to comics, movies, videogames, and more. The 30ml bottles come in plastic and have a very reasonable price of $14.99. The company has a weekly buy-two-get-one-free “Tremendous Tuesday” promo on 15ml bottles. All three of these juices vape cleanly and are suitable for any type of juice delivery system. They’re good straight out of the mail, though I’d suggest a week or two of steeping for Vader’s Vengeance.

The three Majestic Vapors Geek Line juices I tried were good. The one I wanted to like the most ended up being my least favorite, while the other two were more enjoyable. Here are the flavor breakdowns and steeping notes.

Vader’s Vengeance: This juice gets bonus points for a multifaceted nerd name. Darth Vader is a bad ass, the name is alliterative, and the name is also a play on the popular Boba’s Bounty e-liquid. Think of Vader’s Vengeance as Boba’s Bounty light. It’s a nice blend of a light tobacco, honey, and graham. I found it to be an enjoyable dessert vape. While I expect some Boba’s Bounty fans to scoff at this juice (it’s certainly not as distinct as the original and Boba’s Bounty fans can be…irrational), I recommend giving it a shot if you want a dessert vape with a touch of tobacco. Majestic Vapors did a solid job on this juice and it was my favorite of the bunch.

Fant4stic Four: Of course Fant4stic Four is an RY4, but it’s not a traditional one. Along with the typical ingredients of light tobacco, caramel, and vanilla, Majestic Vapors added some chocolate to the mix. In some ways, this juice reminded me of Black Cloud Vapor’s take on RY4, which didn’t quite work for me. I actually enjoyed this juice more than Black Cloud’s chocolatey RY4s, but more as a dessert vape than as an RY4. If you’re a fan of traditional Asian RY4s or sweeter Western RY4s, the chocolate might throw you off. If you approach this juice as a dessert vape then there’s a good chance that you’ll like it. Also, it’s hard not to vape this juice and not shout, “Flame on!!!”

Lantern’s Light: As a huge, huge mark for Green Lantern (the comics, not the extremely unfortunate Ryan Reynolds movie), I wanted to love this juice. Even though it’s awesomely green, it wasn’t really my thing. Lantern’s Light is a candy lime flavor, with some earthiness in the background. The end result is something like lime Skittles candy. I know a lot of vapers that would love this juice (candy flavors are hugely popular in SoCal), but I’m usually not into candy vapes. Still, I was intrigued by the idea of this juice, but wish it had a natural flavor instead of a candy one; a natural lime flavor with tobacco in the background sounds like something I’d enjoy. Lantern’s Light isn’t bad by any means. It’s simply not my thing.

(On a totally nerdy note, I mentioned to the juice maker that it’s too bad the company wasn’t around during the Blackest Night crossover. Majestic Vapors could’ve had all the spectrums covered. In my head, I’m whipping up recipes for the Blue Lantern Corps, Indigo Tribe, etc. Don’t judge me. I prefaced this tangent by saying it was a totally nerdy note.)

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) juice; since those are known to clog up cartomizers quickly, those are vaped in atomizers and clearomizers.
