Main Squeeze by Epic Juice has now become my main squeeze as far as ADVs go. I have never experienced anything quite as invigorating and thoroughly pleasing as this E-juice. So far, by my admittedly strict and overly complex rating system, this juice has scored the highest out of 70 (my total number of rated juices thus far). When I read the description of this one, I can’t say that I was sprinting cross country to secure my place in a line waiting to try this E-liquid. Touted as a lemon/menthol blend, I wasn’t really expecting much. My predictive powers were completely pwn3d when I took my first long inhale of this spectacular miracle of E-juice creations. Epic Juice, in the words of Wayne and Garth, “We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy, we’re not worthy!”
The lemon/menthol nature of Epic Juice’s Main Squeeze is somewhat of an overstatement, in that both lemon and menthol are generally expected to be quite potent and overpowering flavors. Here is where the mixing genius of this ground-breaking E-juice company is exposed to the world in all of it’s confident glory! The lemon is more of a perfectly baked lemon bar type of lemon than anything approaching a bite from an actual lemon, or a mouth full of Lemon Head sourness. It’s this understatement of sour intensity and the resulting highlight of the actual fruitiness of the lemon that perfectly characterizes Main Squeeze E-juice. The menthol provides a boost of throat hit and that familiar sensation of coolness on the way down into the lungs. Otherwise, that usual mintiness is barely there or completely absent, without actually being absent. It’s almost as if it’s not menthol, but koolada (cool sensation minus the flavor) that has been used to highlight the perfect notes of lemon perfection in this harmony of taste-bud nirvana!
As I stated above, the throat hit is damn near perfect. And it’s because of that menthol/koolada piggy-back effect that the throat hit flows so incredibly smoothly down the throat and into the lungs. The vapor itself is thick and moist. It’s with vapes like this one that I begin to realize that the practice and art of vaping is something that is soon going to surpass tobacco smoking entirely, even (if I may be so bold to suggest) the long-honored art of cigar appreciation and enjoyment. The moist character of the vapor is something that is absent in tobacco smoke, thanks to the burning involved. Vaporization, on the other hand, is all about maintaining the moisture and a means of emulsifying the nicotine and flavor for easy inhalation into the lungs. Because of this, vaping is more akin to breathing foggy morning air while riding a bicycle downhill than sucking in the dried up smoke particles of burning organic matter (and a few deadly poisonous additives if you patronize Big Tobacco corporations). Epic Juice has packed their vapor full of flavor and that magic ratio of VG/PG combination, in order to exhort the wetness of atomized E-liquid. And to top all of this off, Main Squeeze reacts very favorably to a little variation of voltage.
Epic Juice is a smaller company (what I like to think of as a micro-mixer), and carried a catalog of seven flavors… all of which are 5-star vapes! As I’ve said many times before, it’s not about having a huge array of hundreds of flavors. Variety is good, so long as quality remains intact. There are, however, many of these types of micro-mixers out there that concentrate on perfecting a small selection of well-crafted flavors. Epic Juice is an exemplary micro-mixer, and as long as they continue to manufacture the quality of products they currently offer, I’m sure they will go far in this industry, as a top-shelf brand of E-juice for the discerning vaper. If you’re interested in giving them a shot, I suggest starting with Main Squeeze. You definitely won’t regret it, and you just might find yourself a new All-Day-Vape to carry around with you wherever you go!
