The world of vaping needs different types of vapes for different types of people. Everything from full-bodied, rich flavors to light and airy ones help to keep the interest of the vaping community at large. In this particular case, Mount Baker Vapor has developed a very light, enjoyable, and very smooth ADV (All Day Vape). The true spirit of the tropics is delivered by this Albino Drake, which makes one wonder why the drake’s skin isn’t at least a little more tanned… but pale white or deeply tanned, this particular dragon is still capable of delivering a passionate, feather-light tropical touch to your senses, without burning you to a crisp with fiery, bad breath. One draw off of this juice will transport you to an island paradise in the South Pacific, sipping some health-improving white tea flavored with fresh island fruits.
At first, I have to say I couldn’t really taste the white tea in Albino Drake. I was immediately aware, however, of the presence of the dragonfruit… hence the name Albino Drake, I assume. There also, if I’m not mistaken, seems to be a hint of other velvety tropical fruits, such as star fruit, kiwi, and/or passionfruit. The tea, is always just barely there, like the cloud on which the angel floats, just below the main flavors providing a vehicle for their smooth delivery. Again, I have to stress the tropical “feel” of this Mount Baker vape. While vaping, I feel like playing the Jimmy Buffer station on Pandora. One thing I noticed about the flavor that I found particularly interesting was that the flavor only responded well to low voltage output on my VV (Variable Voltage) battery. This is not in and of itself a bad thing, but I figured it was worth mentioning, especially if you don’t have a VV battery. You might need to invest in a basic eGo Twist (not too terribly expensive) to truly enjoy Albino Drake.
The 50/50 VG/PG ratio Albino Drake juice and the 80/20 ratio hardly seem to differ much at all when it comes to throat hit. (That’s vegetable glycerine to propylene glycol ratio, if you’re unfamiliar with the industry jargon). Obviously, the 50/50 hit a little harder, but it’s starting off from a very light level to begin with, so neither mixes present anything more than that comfortable, feather-touch of a vapor inhalation. The exhale on this Mount Baker Baker creation is full of San Fransisco-esque foggy clouds, so you know you’re exhaling, but (like an ultra-light analog cigarette) you can just barely feel it flowing past the nerves in your throat. This is the perfect vape for someone who is vaping for enjoyment, not necessarily to quit smoking (Oops, are we not supposed to admit that we vape for enjoyment? FDA, if you’re reading this… that last part was code for one of Bobby Fisher’s most famous chess strategies. Nothing to see here… go away.).
All in all, Mount Baker Vapor’s penchant for turning out consistently enjoyable products through their high-end manufacturing process is especially apparent in their Albino Drake vape. Great flavor, very light and not-too-sweet, and a good throat hit in both the 50/50 and 80/20 mixes are the admirable qualities of this white dragon of an E-juice. There are so many other flavors available on Mount Baker Vapor’s website that I’m dying to try. And I feel fairly certain that every one of them will deliver a good vaping experience.
