I’m always a little nervous when I first dive into an e-liquid with a strawberry base. More often than not, they tend to have a slightly bitter, medicinal overtone that I’m simply unable to overcome. The Strawberry Angel from Mister-E-Liquid is brimming with the enticing aroma of strawberry shortcake that smells quite close to the real thing.
The vape is very similar to the nose, with a moderate hit of strawberry, a whole lot of cake, and a dollop of creaminess rounding out the profile. The flavor of the angel food cake is exceedingly convincing, simultaneously tasting light, yet still delicious and satisfying. The creamy factor used to suggest the whipped cream obligatory for any strawberry shortcake, is not quite as robust as other whipped cream flavors I’ve had, but still well beyond passable with a smooth, lush mouthfeel.
Allowing the strawberry to play more of a supporting role pays off big for Mister-E-Liquid, as it keeps the harsh flavor that all too often goes hand in hand with strawberry e-juice, suitably in check while still letting enough fruit into the mix to provide a sweet dessert vape. This juice also has the capability to handle some relatively high wattage. With my atty clocking in at 2.9O, I took the Strawberry Angel all the way up to 5.7 volts, yielding just over 11 watts, without diminishing the flavor in any fashion. This is where sweet spot can get a little tricky.
This juice tastes good at almost every point along the wattage spectrum, making it a good choice for any type of PV, variable voltage or standard, but the hotter you take this juice, the more pronounced the strawberry flavor becomes. I thought it was best around 5.5V or just about 10.5 watts, but your mileage may vary. At that voltage, the flavor is very pronounced, throat hit is more than solid, and vapor production is excellent.
