The vape industry has kind of a chicken and egg thing going on. Hardware designers and manufacturers come up with more powerful mods and lower resistance coils that challenge existing methods of crafting ejuice. Mixologists tweak their formulas, playing with PG/VG ratios and flavor profiles to take full advantage of available hardware. It’s a cycle that’s played out many times over the past year or so.
There’s a new ejuice company that’s jumped to the front of the line in that continuing process of innovation, Forge Eliquids. They craft their ejuices to offer superior flavor at high temperatures. Their website says, “Forge Eliquids have been hand crafted to deliver a vaping experience unlike anything available today, with temperature variable flavor profiles that subtly change as you alter the temperature you vape at.”
There are 10 flavors (as of now) on the Forge menu, and American eLiquid Store carries all 10 of them. They sent the entire menu for Seven Report reviews. And our January 2016 American eLiquid Store give away included a 50 ml bottle of each of those 10 flavors.
When faced with reviewing an entire line of ejuice the toughest decision is where to start. For the Forge Eliquids I simply pulled a bottle out of the box at random. That happened to be Jacked Apple.
Jacked Apple is a cereal flavored ejuice, inspired by that old childhood favorite Apple Jacks. That’s a flavor I know well, both from the actual cereal, and as an ejuice. The Forge version is an amazingly accurate and complex version of that flavor profile.
The official description of Jacked Apple reads, “A red apple flavor lightly toasted and paired with a touch of cinnamon and graham cracker, then soaked in a light cream for just long enough to hold all those flavors together. Jacked Apple is a crafted cereal flavor you know and love, except done in the Forge Vapor style, that is, able to handle every bit of heat and every quad coil you throw at it.”
The Numbers As Tested
Nicotine Level 3 MG
PG/VG Ratio: 15/85
Jacked Apple has a consistent base flavor, primarily a slightly sweet apple and cinnamon, and both of those tastes are evident on the inhale. But, as promised by Forge Eliquid, the taste experience undergoes subtle changes as you crank up the heat. The higher the temperature the bolder cinnamon gets. At the mid point of the suggested temperature range you begin to notice a little of the graham flavor.
The exhale provides a little more cinnamon that apple, but both are present. The vapor is smooth, creamy and a little on the warm side. The throat hit is mild. Jacked Apple’s aroma is dominated by the cinnamon with notes of juicy, sweet red apple.
I vaped Jacked Apple over the course of two days, it provides a wonderfully complex, full-bodied vape experience, no matter what temperature you set your mod to. If this is the future of ejuice craftsmanship, vapers are in for a very flavorful 2016. Jacked Apple is a delightful apple-cinnamon ejuice that will provide fans of that flavor profile with hours of blissful vaping.
American eLiquid Store offers Forge Eliquid’s Jacked Apple in 50 ml bottles for $24.99, and each bottle comes with a Forge vape. Available nicotine levels are 0 MG, 1.5 MG, 3 MG, 6MG, and 9 MG. Forge Eliquid mixes Jacked Apple in a 15/85 PG/VG ratio. They suggest vaping Jacked Apple between 425F – 575F at a wattage range of 20 – 30 watts with a 0.5 ohm coil.
I vaped Jacked Apple in a Kangertech Subtank Plus Black Edition with a Ni200 coil on an Asmodus Snow Wolf 200 watt mod. American eLiquid Store provided the bottle of Jacked Apple I tested for the purpose of this review.
