I’m gradually whittling down my supply of Shark Juice selections to choose from and this week the lucky winner is Espresso. Here’s what they say about it:
Smooth and versatile this custom Espresso vapor leaves you wanting more and more. With each taste, you experience the rich nuances of a perfected craft. This particular flavor is a must have for all of you vapers out there! Its rich flavor, lingering aroma and caramelly sweetness make it completely invigorating.
I’ve got this at 18mg in a house blend.
This juice has a yellow tone to it and smells of coffee with a light hint of mint in the bottle.
When I first tried this I did a double-take because immediately I was blasted with a heavy dose of menthol. I find it really odd that this juice has an extremely strong menthol presence to it – to the point where it pretty much kills the flavor. It doesn’t really seem like menthol and espresso make a great combination to begin with, and the fact that it isn’t even mentioned in the description is troubling to say the least.
The Bottom Line
Taste. It’s weird because the juice actually smells quite a bit like coffee, but its hard to pull much coffee flavor out from under the menthol. You can kind of tell it’s there, but just barely. I guess the closest thing I could liken it to is taking a small sip of coffee immediately after brushing your teeth and hitting up some mouthwash.
True to Description. I don’t know if I have ever seen a bigger description fail than this one. It just simply isn’t even close to being as described, and it doesn’t make any sense to me that they would not include the fact that this is an extremely heavy menthol vape in the description.
Throat Hit. At 18mg, I am pretty disappointed in this one. Out of mostly 18mg juices I have been evaluating, this one is easily one of the bottom 3 in terms of throat hit and way below average.
Quality of Vape. Really, this is one of the worst all around vapes I have had in quite some time. It tastes absolutely awful. It isn’t true to the description at all. The menthol wasn’t even listed as an ingredient, yet it is the primary flavor in the vape, and I don’t think it’s a good combination to begin with. The throat hit is very poor. What else can I say?
Overall. This really might be one of the worst juices I have ever had. At least in my all-time bottom 5. There is just no bright spot at all, and there are so many things about it that really don’t make sense. The really odd thing is that this is one of the few juices that is still available on their site. I really don’t get it at all.
