I’ve already reviewed a good deal of juice from the folks over at LJ’s e-Smokes, but this is the first bottle I’ve managed to get my hands on from their new house branded line of e-liquid. LJ’s has been selling juice from Flavorz by Joe, Hooligan Vapes, and Juices by upStomp for quite some time, all high quality brands that are well made, and usually downright delicious.
So while there was not necessarily a need for another line of juice on the shelves of LJ’s, having more options to choose from is never a bad thing. With their already stellar reputation for selling high quality e-liquids, I was looking forward to seeing what the vendor was whipping up in their own mixing room, so I eagerly grabbed a fresh dripping atomizer and the bottle of Strawberry Banana Smoothie, and got to work.
The banana is clearly the most potent flavor in the profile with a sweet candied quality that presents immediately with a rich, ripe, intense flavor while still possessing a smooth, subtle creaminess thanks to the smoothie portion of the profile. The sweet, ripe banana flavor and creamy element derived from the smoothie component are nicely complimented by the high, fruity notes of a strawberry overtone that, while never in-your-face powerful, persists throughout the entirety of the vape lending it a sweet, berry quality and helping to cut through the creaminess with a touch of bright acidity.
Overall, this juice is rich, and very fruit forward with a full-bodied mouthfeel and an excellent sense of balance. When vaped around 9 to 9.5 watts (4.8-4.9v on a 2.5Ω atomizer) it produces a smooth mellow throat hit, a full round flavor, and abundant vapor from a 50/50 blend, making the Strawberry Banana Smoothie a very strong first showing from the new line of LJ’s house blends.
