So, my first dip in to the new Chef's....and it's a good one.
Usual 70 VG and 3mg nic. 20% concentrate. Usual Vaporesso Target 200 and iTank. 58w on a 0.2ohm.
The key to this one is that it has that "just one more vape" factor. Watermelon and ice is pretty straightforward forward but the trick here is it's "plus berries". It's quite sweet, not particularly cold but the more candied watermelon works well with the mysterious "berries". Just watermelon and ice is what watermelon and ice does. Nice for a couple of tanks maybe but (for me) not interesting enough for the long term. Here the little twist makes all the difference. Unsurprisingly I'd like it a fair bit colder but overall this is something a little different and rather pleasant. I think longer term it would be a little too sugary sweet for me.

bluemagnum - Interesting 🙂. I hadn't even thought of the legal position - more just from a common sense and courtesy kind of angle I guess - although if McDonald's has to label coffee as "might be hot" I guess I shouldn't be surprised some shops have to put out "No vaping" signs. I think maybe because a vape rather than a cig can be "just one puff" but the thought and sight of people doing it supermarkets and the like does mildly irk me. I also bet it could end up in some curious discussions with security staff too...

Happy Easter everyone. Few more quick reviews of new ELFC stuff. All paid for out of my skyrocket as I don't get any freebies (boo hoo etc). All 70 VG. 20% concentrate. 3mg nic. Vaporesso Target 200 and iTank (0.20 ohm) at 50-55w.
Moo Juice Banana - Foamy banana goodness. Really, really like this one. Absolutely bang on for those banana sweets with a touch of cream on the end. Nice and long lasting flavour. I find this one very comforting. Very smooth and a wonderful aroma. Excellent stuff.
Tiger Juice - I understand this is a tried and tested but I'd never had it before. Strawberry, watermelon and coconut. This one has added cooler (at the mild end) and a much stronger emphasis on the coconut than the other flavours. If I sniff the tank I get a strong watermelon but it doesn't really come through in the vape. I've even looked under the bed for the strawberry but it ain't there either. However, I really like this one too. Creamy and cool coconut. Nice authentic taste. Yep, I'm a fan.
Smoovie - Fruit smoothie. Apricot, mango and banana. This one is a lovely and strong mish mash of fruity pulp. Absolutely spot on smoothie taste. The fruits are very ripe and pungent. First couple of days it was very ripe mango driven but now get the fresh apricot and a tiny bit of banana on the end of the exhale. It's complex but not overly so. Definitely a "one more vape" juice. Very deep and strong. A lovely puree. If that had an ice version it could be almost perfect.
Five positive reviews out of the last six now. Hope someone is kind enough to screenshot it for when I invariably go back to ranting 😂😂😂

Hope all are well. Few quick reviews. All are based on 70 by - 20% concentrate - 3mg nicotine - Vaporesso iT's tank 0.20ohm between 50-55w
Peach Mamba (ELFC) - Sweet and juicy with a decent but not overbearing chill. This has become a new favourite over the last month or so. I find the lemon much stronger than the peach or passion fruit (which seem minimal). Nice and smooth and cool. Added to the rotation without hesitation.
ASAP Grape (ELFC) - Allegedly a clone of a Malaysian juice - and a pretty bad one of you ask me. Weak grape and weak menthol with neither going anywhere. Dull and confused leading nowhere.
Moo Juice Strawberry (ELFC) - After a week and after two weeks this was absolutely tasteless. After 4 weeks a real revelation. A McDonald's strawberry milkshake with a distinctive biscuit undertone. All comes together nicely and the strawberry is distinctly of the pink powdered variety rather than the real red things. Sweetness is nicely balanced and a decent strength of flavour.

Concentrate - 20% Steep - 8 days (NB - recommended is 4 weeks) Nic - 3mg Mix - 70VG Kit - Smok D-barrel (sorry..) with Vapresso iTank (0.22 @ 55w)
Short and sweet - Innnnnteresting
I guess I should be straight and call this an early/interim review. Ghostrideritis struck again and I've opened this one 8 days in to a recommended 4 week steep - the aim will be an adendum to this review after the 4 weeks has passed (hope that's ok )
Off the bat, it is very interesting...and jolly good. At the moment I am getting a lovely honey flavour and then a cereal. The honey is sweet and very authentic (delicious, to be honest) and when the sweetness builds higher and higher then the cereal (which is supposed to be granola) cuts through it and brings everything back down. The cereal is like eating it out of the box with nothing on it (come on we've all done it...). From the blurb, the overarching flavours are supposed to be blueberry and yoghurt and then honey and cereal (a tasty mix indeed...)
Was slightly surprised that the bluberry hasn't made an early appearance. Not sure if Greek yoghurt is like a custard and takes a while to come through?
Hopefully reading this wasn't a total waste of time - so, early doors we have a very nice cereal and honey. In fact, if it stuck like this even after 4 weeks, I certainly wouldn't be disappointed...
Will save a score until after the proper steep time

Concentrate - 20% Mix - 70VG Nic - 3mg Kit - Voopoo Alpha with Vapresso iTank - 0.22ohm @ 60w Blurb - A sweet and cold strawberry kick that will keep you going. A fridge cold strawberry infused energy drink flavour.
Short and sweet - Interesting and very good
Sorry...another energy drink
Am still really enjoying the Exceptional Vapes 'NRG' - a really strong, blow your head off vape with exceptional flavour...so I thought why not see what ELFC have came up with.
This one is much milder - but not in a bad way...
Fridge cold? Be serious. I cannot even tell if there is cooling in this one but we still have a very credible flavour going on. To me, it is almost like strawberry juice. At the end of the exhale you get that slightly 'pasturised' taste like a canned energy drink. It is quite a fluffy mouthful vape and very smooth. I wouldn't really call this one an energy drink - 'a decent strawberry with a twang on the end'.
I like it quite a lot. I think it is very mellow and could be the Ying to the Yang of 'NRG' which is an absolute beast of a vape.

Mix - 70VG Nic - 3mg Concentrate - 20% Steep - A few days (Honest Guv..) Gear - Voopoo Alpha with Vapresso iTank - 0.20ohm @ 56w
Short and sweet? Oh yes
My understanding is that Riot Squad concentrates are pretty popular...this one is my second and I'm happy to add my vote to them so far.
Tried Lemon and Lime previously. Nice and tart and strong. Was very good. I looked at this 'sweet strawberry' for a while before buying. Why? I had those thoughts of 'single flavour' and I guess sweet strawberry is as sweet strawberry does. Wasn't expecting anything zany or clever or a curious mix of avacado and marmite...and this one is very, very good.
Super smooth. Stawberry is authentic and sweet. Flavour is deep but uncomplicated. The flavour gets deeper throughout the inhale and exhale and is long lasting after the vape. I guess we could almost call this a 'comfort flavour'. The vape aroma is delightful too.
Although I've already managed to waffle as much as usual, there really is nothing else to say. If you like strawberry you are going to love this. Not too sweet and a nice juicy fruit.
Back to an old chesnut of mine - uncomplicated and done well is a beautiful thing. What's not to like?
