Heads up - incoming!!
Here are a couple of reviews from Stuart Brown over at Vaping UK Phone App / Ohm Cloud Vaping Mag -
“Generals Juices. Now I’m expecting a lot from The Mighty General. When I first started vaping the Generals website was one of the first I came across that, how can I say, looked a little better than the rest. Not in a pompous, self-righteous, hoity-toity way but if the same amount of care and attention went into the juice that went into the making of the website then it is going to be good! It’s also the distinct lack of flavours too, fewer flavours automatically shouts “MORE CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL!!” And when the ‘e-juice militia’ go to the trouble of naming and giving a small history to each juice that’s kinda’ cool and fun and makes them all so much more appealing. You want to take part in this crazy little concocted world. You are overcome with a huge desire to try any of the juices after reading the history and description, even the banana one and I can’t stand bananas!! So that’s a brilliantly designed website, check! A perfect selling angle, check! Now on to the juices..
I was lucky enough to get my juices the very next day and it comes with a little leaflet telling you that the juices need to steep for a bit. So I opened them straight away and filled my tanks! Obviously. First up was the Generals new juice, The Deserter!! (Strawberry cheesecake – I’ll let you find out the history behind it…poor little strawberry..) The smell is gorgeous strawberry, of course but with the promise of a buttery-biscuit-base and a cream-cheesiness too it’s a pretty mouth-watering proposition. After letting it settle in I start it at the lower end of the scale, around 3.5/3.6v and its ok, if a little wishy-washy. The strawberry taste and smell is there but not much else, time to crank it up! Climbing up to around the 4v and things get a trifle more interesting. Oodles of vapour! Just that bit more power heating up the coil kicks out the other flavours from their hiding place and plant them squarely in ya’ cake-hole! The tasty strawberry on the way down then on the way up and out the toasty, biscuit and a sweet creaminess finishes it off. Cle-ver mixing. I can only imagine it getting better with some age behind it, time to steep. Oodles of vapour!
Trooper Tobacco is next – Liquoricey, deep woody, bit like a roll-up rolled with a liquorice paper. Sweet, earthy. These were some of the tastes and thoughts that were flying about when first trying out the Trooper Tobacco. I’m a few days in now and I’ve got to say this is some of the best tobacco I’ve tasted. I love my tobacco flavours, at the end of the day I liked smoking, most of us did, hence why we did it for so long, in a lot of cases. When you roll your own you get the knack down of rolling perfect every time, unless you’ve had a few sherberts then some sloppy ‘sleeping bags’ seem to suffice! The perfect amount of tobacco, the right tightness and air flow. You become a craftsman in your own right and take pride in the art of rolling it-just so. Compared to tailor-mades the roller appreciates the actual flavour of the tobacco so much more and finding a tobacco that you’re happy with is a kind of rite of passage. The same amount of pride, effort and endless tinkering seems to have been used in creating this juice. An amazing flavour that seems full bodied and complex. The overriding note in it is liquorice but it isn’t too strong it’s just about nudging its nose in front to stand out from the rest but there seems to be so many different flavours behind that. Sweet tones, woody tones, spices, a whole concoction of different things blended to absolute perfection to give a well-rounded, wholly pleasurable vaping experience. I usually have about four different flavours on the go at any one time, weighs my pockets down enormously! Trooper Tobacco has been a constant though, so hard to put down and it saddens me that the bottom of the bottle looms! Top notch, quality tobacco, easily an all-dayer. This bottle, I’m afraid, most probably won’t be around long enough to steep. :/ It’s just too good to leave! Go on spoil yourself! ”
Really been impressed by the quality and intricacy of mixing and I've been singing your praises every which way I can! If I could I’d have a 60ml bottle of the Trooper on permanent standby! Regards, Stuart Brown Vaping UK
My setup: Sigelei 30w - Vaping at 18-22w Kanger Aerotank Mega Naturevape coils KGD cotton wicks
I only used them for the 1st time a couple of months ago but have ordered from no-one else since.
I'd heard great things about their signature juice, B-bomb and so I wanted to try it but also ordered the sampler pack plus the other couple of flavours separately. They only do 8 flavours so it wasn't going to break the bank.
The sampler includes: General Custard The B-Bomb Lieutenant Limey Lemon Sentry Fusilier Fruitbowl Gorilla Warfare
It doesn't include: The Deserter Trooper Tobacco
I have liked all of them to varying degrees but 2 are stand-out favourites: The Deserter (the newest recruit) & The famous B-Bomb. The latter of which is by far the best juice I've ever had and is my ADV. A few colleagues are also in love with it too.
You can order in quantities of: 10ml, 30ml & 60ml (£4, £10 & £19.50) and will come in multiples of 10ml bottles. I prefer this approach as it's easier to carry around a smaller bottle rather than a bigger one or have to decant into a smaller bottle.
The labels include the usual info including the born date.
The PG/VG ratio varies depending on flavour but is generally 70VG:30PG
All mine were 18mg and you can choose from 0-24mg.
All are quite thick with nice strong flavour but not over-powering and have a medium throat hit with plenty of vapour. Just right for me. There was a very nice hand-written thank you note in the package that recommended steeping. I'm an impatient bugger and couldn't wait but have found all of them to be good right away.
Delivery times have been no more than 3 working days and an order I placed yesterday late morning arrived today. Outstanding.
Postage is a flat £1.50 which is very good value IMO
There were a couple of minor mix-ups with my orders but it was swiftly resolved with no hassle at all. The general wants to go the extra-mile to make sure you get good service.
For the 1st time in my 7 months of vaping I feel that I've found THE juice, B-bomb. I've lost all desire to go venturing for other flavours (although I probably will out of curiosity but a lot less often).
I like the fact they have a limited range, it means they can concentrate on quality rather than quantity and it really shows.
I do have one complaint though. Now all of a sudden I have a couple of hundred ml of juices from others that just make me go meh! and I'll probaly get rid of them.
Great value, stellar service, wonderful flavour. What's not to like?
The sampler pack of 6x5ml juices is only £9.50 so what have you got to lose? Don't forget to add at least the Deserter to the order.
There's also a 10% discount code GJ10
Thank you General for helping me enjoy vaping even more
PS. B-bomb has been the only juice I could still taste well with this bloody cold I've had all week so thanks for getting me through it

Another splendid review from Stuart at VapingUK App –
‘Lemon Sentry – It was a gloomy moment when the bottom of the Trooper Tobacco came into sight and the juice was no more. L However, fear not! The Trooper may have gone but the Lemon Sentry was here to stay, well, for a bit anyway, hoorah!! It’s the last of review juices I have for the General but hopefully it won’t be for long, not if santa got my letter! This juice, is just as deep and flavoursome as the others. The lemon is definitely there, filling your mouth on the intake but just like a good lemon drizzle cake it’s blended wonderfully and backed up by sumptuous, sugary rich cake on the exhale, it is tasty, really tasty. Reviewing is nice when juices are like this, the only problem is putting it down to actually type…..you’ll do…. a few….. words… then have to…. go.. back.. for more.. It tastes clean, natural and just bloody good, trust me, try it! Mixing perfection, very, very clever. So in conclusion to reviewing the General and his juices. Try them. That’s the only advice I can give. Try them. The three juices I had were all so full of flavour, with a real depth and quality to them. As I said in the opening comments of the ‘Deserter’ review, when you see the website and the effort that goes into marketing the merchandise you hope the juice is of the same calibre and it really is. The clever mixing team they have down at Generals Juices really know what they’re doing. To achieve quality like this in every bottle, in every flavour is a real achievement. When you consider that the price is pretty much the same as what others charge for a bog standard, factory-spat item, it really is a no-brainer, the two are leagues apart. I would happily try anything and everything The General has to offer. Christmas is coming, go on, treat yourself or someone else, they’ll definitely thank you for it!’

NEWS FROM GENERAL HQ – 06.12.14 -
Christmas is coming and The General is getting fat
We’ve a few updates for you. Christmas tends to mess with our supply lines a little. According to Royal Mail, the last confirmed date for getting your vaping rations is 20.12.14, so please make sure that you order before then to ensure that your vaping rations are with you for Christmas.
We will be open for orders all over Christmas, but won’t be visiting the post office between 23.12.14 and 29.12.14. Just so you know…
We have just updated our Safetys On page with the results of tests on three of our e-liquids. The results show, as expected, that they are free from diketones. Check out the page for more info. We have sent more juices off for testing and will add the results when we get them.
Finally, we are really proud to have been nominated for the Best New Brand of 2014 in the E Cig Click awards. Thanks to all our customers for making this happen. Click here - www.ecigclick.co.uk/e-cig-awards-2014-polls/ to see the poll – and to vote for us, obviously

Heads up people! Just to let you know that we have had a few more reviews added to the site. Check out our comments page to see what people are saying about our delicious juices- generalsjuices.co.uk/comments/ Merry Christmas from The General and all the best for 2015. Gav

Just a quick update to let you know about some upcoming changes to the Generals Juices range. As a result of feedback from you, our customers, and the possible restrictions imposed by future regulation, we are removing 24mg strength from our range and replacing it with a 3mg option. This means that our range will be available either direct from us or, in due course, from our stockists in 0, 3, 6, 12 and 18mg strengths. We know that this won't be popular with everyone, but it reflects how we want / need to move forward during 2015 and beyond.
This change comes into effect from 2nd February 2015. From this point forward, stocks of 24mg will be run down and there may be some limited availability. In order to avoid disappointment, please feel free to drop us an e-mail or give us a call to see if what you are after is available.
Thanks for your support and kind words during 2014 - we've really appreciated them.

Very conscious that we haven't been on the forums for a while - sorry. To make up for it, we've got a double update for you. Firstly, next Sunday, 5th April 2015, marks our first anniversary - 12 months of trading as Generals Juices. Who'd have thought that, eh? AND who stole the last year!! In order to mark this auspicious occasion, we'll be offering 15% off all of our juices for the whole day. If your one of our regulars - stock up. If you've not tried our juices yet, drop by and see if there's something for you.
Secondly, we know that we've been promising some new flavours for a while now, but we haven't been 100% happy at the final testing stage, so they have been scrapped. This said, we are now pretty confident that 2 or 3 new flavours will be ready by the end of the month. Watch this space for details of sampling / testing later on in the month - there are some crackers to try
