Ashley from over at ELFC sent me three new flavours out to try, they came as flavour shots in 120ml bottles with 24ml of flavour concentrate already in there. So basically you just add your own nic and diluents. I added 100ml in total. 70% VG and 30% PG and 0.2% nicotine.

Give them a good shake and it does say on the bottle they need 4 6 weeks steeping. But me being... erm me, can't wait that long!!

So I tried straight the way, and to be honest they were all pretty nice right off the bat. Now it's almost 2 weeks later and I'm giving them another try.

Lets start with:

Bohemian Raspberry - Italian pastry filled with raspberries and topped with creamy custard.

Smell test Raspberries definitely! And there is a buttery creamy smell there as well.

This so reminds me of a flavour I used to vape many years ago, Raspberry and coconut, but without the coconut!  :laughtears: The raspberry is the most prominent flavour but there is a kind of creamy dessert type back taste to it as well. I'm not getting any pastry yet, but there is definitely that creamy taste, obviously the custard coming through. This isn't too sweet, and the raspberry gives it a bit of a tang on the inhale.

This is extremely good! I really do like this and wonder if the pastry will make an appearance with extra steeping, letting it go the full 4 to 6 weeks. To be honest I'm not sure it will last that long (can't stop vaping it!) So I may decant 20ml out and stick it in a cupboard for a couple more weeks.

I will be back with an update for this one, but at the minute its lovely and very more-ish! If you're into Raspberry flavours then Bohemian Raspberry is well worth a try.

Ceekays Shack Score

This gets a 'berry' yummy 4.5/5   :clap: (Definitely on target for a 5 if that pastry comes through)


Citrus Smash  - Refreshing blend of citrus fruits, spearmint, aniseed and menthol.

Smell Test Not sure if I dare say it, but this smells like a cleaning product! Like floor cleaner or something  :oooo:

Luckily this one tastes better than it smells. The citrus and aniseed and mint do taste kind of strange all mixed up, but they actually work really well together  :dunno:  Its like eating fruit after you just brushed your teeth! You can just about pick out all of the separate flavours, I definitely get a lemony, orangey, citrus taste, and spearmint, the aniseed is a little more in the background and on the exhale (reminds me of drinking pernod)

Remember the 'Ice White' chewing gum? Well I had a lemon flavour once and it really reminds me of that. Not sure if there's menthol in here as well, as the spearmint is fairly prominent. It tastes wrong! But not in a bad way... it's definitely a strange mix of flavours, that leaves you with a cool tongue, and wondering what the hell just hit your taste buds!  :think:

Would I vape Citrus Smash daily? Probably not, but if I fancied something refreshing and minty its definitely one that I would revisit.

Ceekays Shack Score

This one gets a breath freshening 3.5/5  :ting:


Tropik - Tropical mix of mango, peach and papaya with a cooling exhale.

Smell Test Tropical fruity kind of smell.

This one is definitely very tropical, but not too sweet. I am getting papaya and mango, definitely those two seem to overpower the peach as its either well mixed in and you can't really taste it, or it was added to bring the other two together. I think peach can be quite a subtle favour anyway. Altogether though its a very pleasant favour with a lovely coolness on the exhale that leaves your lips feeling just a little bit chilled!  It also has quite a tang to it, which I really love  :yes:

It definitely makes me think of cool blue sea's, white sandy beaches and staying cool under a palm tree while vaping this one. And anything that can whisk me away from the UK's dull and dreary weather is ok in my book!

Could I vape this all day? Well tropical flavours aren't really my thing, but I really am starting to love this, it will be one I revisit when I fancy something a little bit different to my normal flavours. If you like the tropical tangy end of the scale to tantalize your taste buds, then you need to give Tropik a try.

Ceekays Shack Score

This one gets a tangy 4.5/5  :thumbs:


These 3 flavours are great additions to ELFC's ever expanding line, and for me to find flavours that don't make me think 'ughhh' is quite a bonus!

One thing I do need to mention, the 120ml bottles have huge nozzles and you will struggle to get them into some tanks. You might need to decant these liquids into bottles with smaller nozzles.

I will be coming back to 'Bohemian Raspberry' again in a couple of weeks to see if that pastry flavour has found its way to the forefront, but until then, a huge thank you to Ashely from ELFC for sending these out for me to try.

You can pick up these mouth watering flavours over here ELFC Original Recipe at 4.99 for a 120ml flavour shot (you add the nicotine and diluents, the flavour is already measured out) or 6.99 for a 30ml of concentrate (you measure out the whole thing)

I am finding quite a few that I actually like, which is shocking for me as I've always been really fussy with flavours.
I think the quality of liquids and flavours is way better than what it used to be.

I can agree w/that :thumbup: I still find some with very little flavor, but, I bought a case, 24 cheap cheap, that is so strong, that I have to cut it with something neutral. I love the flavor, but, lawd it's sickening after just a bit :laughtears:

Yeah some flavours are too strong for me, thats why I prefer to mix my own, but to be fair these flavour shots are pretty good.
