Skwezed Short Fill E-Liquids Review
Skwezed is a brand I was unfamiliar with until today, but apparently this USA made e-liquid has been getting a lot of people very excited. Based in California, Skwezed are offering something that has been missing from a lot of juice companies of late. That is, straight, authentic tasting single fruit flavours. If you are getting bored of buying complex fruit blends that end up tasting like a slightly different version of the same old ‘Tropical Mix’, then this Skwezed range may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
There’s five flavours in the range: Grapefruit, Peach, Mango, Lychee and Green Apple. I have them in zero nicotine, 50ml short fill bottles. The range is blended to a 70/30 mix, so are perfect for DTL vaping. They are packaged nicely in really attractive looking boxes that have pictures of the delicious looking fruits on them. I have to admit they look really good on the shelf and a lot better than many liquid brands. However, while we can all appreciate nice looking packaging, it’s how they taste that’s important. I’m testing them out in a Kennedy 24 with a pair of simple clapton coils on a regulated mod at around 60w.
This could be a mistake but I’ll start with what I think I will enjoy the most, which is the Skwezed Peach. First impressions are very positive, it could be one of, if not the most natural tasting peach e-liquid I’ve tasted.
It has a very enjoyable natural sweetness level and an extremely juicy mouthfeel. It really does have that mouthwatering effect that just makes me want to keep on vaping it. Being a single flavour it’s reminding me that complicated isn’t always best. Skwezed Peach doesn’t have hints of papaya on the exhale or a hardly noticeable undercurrent of mango and I think it’s all the better for it. That doesn’t mean there’s no depth to the flavour, it’s just focused in that overall peach taste rather than other flavour notes. It pretty much perfectly captures the flavour of the real fruit, which is not an easy thing to do. I’m impressed.
I’ll be honest, grapefruit is not a flavour I enjoy and that is probably an understatement. So it’s with some trepidation that I re-wick and load up with Skwezed Grapefruit.
It has all the tangy tartness you would expect and if you like grapefruit, then I’m in no doubt you will absolutely love this. It has the same mouthwatering juiciness as the peach too, if not more, but it’s just not my thing at all. I can’t really say much more about it, other than if, unlike me, you love grapefruit then I would highly recommend giving it a try.
Moving swiftly on to something more to my tastes, giving Skwezed Mango a quick sniff was enough to tell me that I was going to really enjoy this one. It has a very aromatic smell and while vaping this my partner even commented how wonderful it smelled as it wafted around my lounge.
It’s a little sweeter than the peach, but it’s not anywhere close to being over sweet. It’s quite a unique taste, and although it’s a flavour profile that I have tasted many times before, never has mango tasted quite like this. It’s hard to put my finger on but there’s something delicate, almost floral, that puts it on a totally new level. It’s almost like you’ve picked it right from the tree and the smell of a whole orchard is being represented. It’s probably why it smells so great in the room. This liquid is stunning and I urge everyone to give it a try. I’m almost lost for words, it really is that good.
Talking of orchards, I’m trying Green Apple next. This smells just like a proper Granny Smith to me, it’s actually uncanny how close to the real thing it actually is.
The first thing I noticed is how they’ve captured the crispness that green apples have, it doesn’t have any softness or mushiness to the taste. It’s very slightly sharp, crisp and authentic flavour. I think this would make the perfect vape for the summer, it’s delightfully refreshing in a way that’s very hard to get tired of. If you are looking for that perfect green apple all day vape, then I’m not sure you could do better than this.
Lastly we have Skwezed Lychee, which has a really nice rose-tinted sweetness just like the fruit. There’s a little of the sourness too which is balanced really well.
I like this a lot, lychee always tastes very Asian to me, it’s hard to describe but when you taste it you’ll know what I mean. Vaping this puts me right on the beach in Thailand and brings back memories of all the tastes and smells of the country. It’s quite an exotic flavour to my English taste buds and it’s a truly wonderful experience vaping this liquid. Again, I think Skwezed have done stunning job with this flavour.
I have no doubt this whole Skwezed range will fly off shops’ shelves once the word gets around. I wouldn’t have thought I would be going back to vaping single flavour liquids any time soon, but Skwezed have proven that, when done right, single fruit flavours can be just as delicious to vape as any complex fruit blends, if not more so.
