Juice Review: Foxy Lemon and Mountain Smoke by Steamer Elixire

A while ago I kind of promised that I'd do a review of some juices from the first Norwegian e-juice brand available on the international market, Steamer Elixire. Roger, the man behind this juices, was kind enough to send me some samples that I've had the pleasure of enjoying for a couple of weeks now.

Now I do have some samples of some unreleased juices as well, but in this first review of Steamer Elixir I'll focus on the two juices available on cool-chili-vapors, Foxy Lemon and Mountain Smoke.

Foxy Lemon
Tested on: Hellfire Mega (Around 0.9 ohm's on a mech-mod)

I suspected this to taste a bit like some lemon toffee candy called Fox that we have here in Norway, and probably elsewhere at least in Scandinavia. Been a while since I tasted them, but I remember them clearly from when I was a kid. Smelling it confirmed this also, as the smell instantly reminded me of the candy. Tasting it it is maybe a tiny bit less sweet than the candy, but that's not a bad thing. The taste still reminds me of the candy, but I guess it can also be described as pure lemon juice, perfectly sweetened with sugar. Easily one of the most authentic fruit juices I've tried, and I bet it tastes even better on a hot summer day. Really great stuff this. Highly recommended, and I'm not saying that just because it's Norwegian (and that picture actually looks a bit like my dog, a Finnish Spitz), but I mean it. If you're into citrus juices... this is the one you need to try out.


Mountain Smoke
Tested on: Hellfire Dripper (Around 0.4 ohm's, 17-20 watts)

Mountain Smoke is the result of Rogers efforts to create a tobacco e-liquid that actually tasted something like what he was used to when smoking. Now I'm not sure what Roger used to smoke, and to be honest I didn't worry to much about how my cigarettes tasted back when I was smoking either so I can't really say I recognize any specific brand. But this I think is as close as it gets. Very authentic tobacco taste. The only other juices I've tasted with that is as authentic as this one is the tobacco steeps from House of Liquid. It's also has a sweetness to it that I like. In some way it kind of pronounces the tobacco flavour as well. I don't really vape tobacco juices that often since a lot of them taste like... well not tobacco, and the House of Liquid line clogs up coils very fast so I save those for special occasions, but this one could make for a great all day vape. Actually every vaper should have some of this available at all times so you can give some to those smokers who says they want to try vaping but want something that tastes like tobacco. This will be the juice I recommend for these people from now on. So did Roger achieve his goal of creating an e-juice that tastes like real tobacco? Hell yeah!

A couple of final words that goes for both of these juices: Both of them are available as 60/40 and 70/30 PG/VG ratio and at least 12, 18 and 24 mg/ml nicotine content (I'm pretty sure my Foxy Lemon bottle said 6 though so they might just be out of stock atm.). The vapor production is still great on both of them. Both of the juices feel very natural and spot on the flavour they are aiming for.

As I said in the beginning, I know that Steamer Elixire is working on more juices, and I have actually gotten some sample from Roger. I've only tried one of them yet, and I'm not going to reveal any more about it just yet, but I can tell you that I don't look forward to the day I run out of that one... cause it's awesome :)
