The Highbrow Vapor e-liquids I have reviewed so far (Dark Chocolate Mint & Heavenly Macaroon) have been impressive but only after leaving them to steep for a week. For more details on this read my Heavenly Macaroon review to see what I mean.
The Creme Brulee when I first opened the bottle smelt fantastic, so much so I went to vape it straight away. Do yourself a favour if you buy this liquid, don’t vape it straight away! It tasted pretty wrong.
Fast forward 10 days or so of steeping and I went back to try again. Relief, first drag tastes good, in fact the more I vape this the better it gets. There really is a nice mix of the vanilla, custard and caramelised sugar just as Highbrow describe it. I suppose it is creme brulee after-all! The other good thing is that it isn’t too sickly or rich, there is a nice amount of sweetness but again not overpowering.
This Having said that I don’t think I will find myself using this as an all day vape, its more of a nice after dinner treat for me. You may have different tastes however and if you are a fan of ‘real’ creme brulee then you might find this as an all day vape. The e-liquid mix I bought was 80% PG to 20% VG and I get good cloud of vapour from this and the 12mg nicotine gives a subtle throat hit and a smooth vape. If you do like a stronger hit on the throat you can request this at checkout or go for a higher nicotine level.
Overall – The Highbrow Vapor Creme Brulee is another impressive flavour, it does need steeping but if you are a fan of cereme brulee it is worth it. Highly recommended!
