Juice review: Signature, Strawpeardew and Pink Custard by Liquid Voyage

Liquid Voyage is a pretty new Swedish e-juice company that has just started shipping outside Sweden. According to their website they "strive to offer premium e-liquid, premium service, and premium care when hand making every bottle of E-Liquid". Now there aren't many Scandinavian e-juice companies around, and one of the reasons for that is probably that prices are pretty high here compared to other places in Europe. Here in Norway it's even illegal to sell e-juice with nicotine for now, and in Sweden it's currently kind of a grey area. Shipping is very expensive as well, so juices from Scandinavia will be pretty expensive. Competing with the rest of Europe on price is pretty much out of the question, meaning high quality is what Scandinavian juice makers will have to go for if they want to get into the market. And this, I think, will lead to most (if not all) Scandinavian e-juice manufacturers really aiming to create the best flavours available. That's pretty cool actually. I think we have a lot to look forward to.

That being said, I don't think the prices are that bad. 55, 130 and 200 SEK for 10, 30 and 50 ml respectively. That's £4.75, £11.2 and £17.25, so not to bad for good quality juice in my opinion. Looking at the Liquid Voyage website they have a selection of 10 different flavours, 5 of which you can get in a "Reserva"-version, which means they are heat steeped for 1 night then stored in a cellar cabinet for 2 weeks and sold in limited quantities. Costs the same as the normal version but only available in 50 ml bottles from what I can see.

So, onto the juices. All three juices reviewed here were 18mg/ml and 60/40 VG/PG. I should add that I did not steep them any extra before I tried them. The fact that they offer a version that is steeped more than the standard tells me that maybe I should.

Signature
Tested on: Hellfire Dripper (around 1.3 ohms)

According to the website this is a Virginia leaf and dark caramel blend. And I'd say their description is pretty much spot on. First thing it reminded me of was one of the first juices I tried actually, a Virginia based tobacco from Decadent Vapours. Only this one is smoother and more toned down. The caramel is also pretty toned down, it's just enough of it to give the tobacco a bit more depth. For me, the Virginia taste itself takes a bit of getting used to, don't know why. At first I find it a bit to sweet I think but after vaping it for a while it just gets better and better and I could easily use it as an all day vape.

Strawpeardew

Tested on: Hellfire Dripper (around 1.3 ohms)

Honeydew melon, Strawberry and Pear according to the website. I'd say Pear, Honeydew melon and a maybe a little bit of Strawberry. At least that's what my tastebuds told me, in that order. The pear is definitely the most dominant, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's a lot of takes on strawberry juices out there so I think using strawberry in the background like this is a good use of it. To be honest it took me a while to taste it, and I still don't get strawberry on every draw, but it's there from time to time, making the juice more interesting. Also an all day vape candidate, as it's by no means overpowering.

Pink Custard
Tested on: Aspire Nautilus BVC (1.6 ohms)

Again, the strawberry is in the background, almost not noticeable, but just popping out from time to time. But this is a rich and creamy vanilla custard, with some kind of twist making it different. The website says it's strawberries and some secret ingredients that I haven't managed to put my finger on. But it's something that makes it a notch less sweet, and a bit fresher than other custards I've tasted. Now this one I put in an Aspire Nautilus, but I think I'll have to try it in the dripper to see if it will pull out some surprises of this liquid. Definitely one to try out.

All in all I'd say Liquid Voyage delivered some good quality juices. None of them are very strong flavoured, but still very good. I would definitely recommend trying out these juices and I also think they might get even better with some more steeping time. Thanks to Marco for sending me the juices to do this review.

A little update:
If you want to try out Liquid Voyage you can enter "giraffe" as a discount code for 10% off. Marco also says he just lowered his shipping costs through out europe to 3.5£/4.4€, which means he's pretty competitive price wise as well.
