120mls of E-liquid For Less Than $20?!? What’s The Catch?

Now this is a range of e-liquids most of us will be unfamiliar with and maybe even worry that at these prices they are shall we say hardly of premium quality!

But prices and big names doesn’t necessarily mean quality – as I can attest to with my fortnightly shop at Aldi lol.

OK Freeman is a USA based company that makes its juices in house in their own ISO-8 laboratory.

freeman e-liquids

They have 9 flavours in the range with an 80 VG 20 PG mix and come in zero 3 and 6mg nicotine strengths.

They’ve also gone big on the bottles too offering 120ml monsters at the astonishing price of $19.99!

There’s also a sample pack of the complete range in 30ml bottles for a remarkable price too.

Right let’s see how these bargain basement e-liquids stack up – BTW I’ve had these for a very long time so my apologies at the delay in getting this review out – but hey they’re big and I mean big bottles!

I used my favourite RDA the Doge III and the Dead Rabbit RDA in squonk mode.

The range was sent to me by Freeman and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.

Freeman Trail Blazer – Tobacco Flavour

freeman trail blazer

Freeman say:


Freeman Trail Blazer is the best tobacco vape juice flavor on either side of the Rockies. First, you start with the most authentic tobacco e-liquid flavor.
Most tobacco flavors generally taste like some combination of feet and something burnt.

Yah, not good. On the other hand, Freeman’s tobacco flavor is inspired by freshly dried tobacco leaves. Nothing burnt. Just fresh, earthy tobacco.

I say:

I vape tobacco flavoured e-liquids regularly all day every day especially in the morning.

I tend to prefer authentic tobacco flavours without any additions like chocolate or coffee etc.

Trail Blazer has a hint of peanut butter and butterscotch – so my nose crinkled a little at the prospect.

However I have to say the nuttiness and sweetness really does add a very tasty depth to this with a delicious crisp tobacco inhale and an extremely moreish exhale – good stuff!

Freeman Icebound – Menthol Flavour

icebound

Freeman say:


Freeman Icebound is our alpine champion menthol vape juice flavor. It all begins with a sharp, crisp menthol. A true authentic menthol e-juice flavor.
Then we jazz it up with mixed berries. Our berry flavor is inspired by ripe blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.

A berry vape juice blend that is a harvest of flavor.
To top it all off, watermelon flavor. The end result is an indulgence of cool vapor refreshment.

I say:

Yeah I know I’m on record as not being much of a menthol fan though as we’ve seen I can be won over by a decent flavour and this one just about does that!

The menthol is on the sweet side of harsh – a nice tingle but more like a minty sweet than a brain freezer!

However the fruits in this lifts it to a whole new level – very juicy and a real refreshing ADV – very nice indeed for both fruit and mint lovers.

Freeman Jungle – Fruit Flavour

jungle

Freeman say:


Fruit flavor vape juice is at the top of millions of vaper’s “favorites” list. Freeman Jungle vape juice is a bold combination of three of the best fruit flavored e-liquids on this or any other planet.

Inspired by the bounty of life teeming in as yet unspoiled jungles. Untouched by concrete construction or rule. Where politics is meaningless.
Where freedom is a spiritual endeavor.

You can’t have a spectacular fruit flavor vape juice without the number one ingredient that Freeman demands of every bottle that goes out our door.

I say:

As the name suggests this is a tropical fruit flavoured e-liquid with the main ingredients being kiwi, strawberry, and banana.

I’ve often said banana is a tricky flavour to pull off by the blenders and sadly the banana overpowers everything else – for me at least.

I do like my tropical fruit vapes to be tart ‘n sweet but I’m getting far too much unripe banana – not for me!

Freeman Homecoming – Strawberry and Rice Pudding Vape Juice

homecoming

Freeman say:


Freeman Homecoming vape juice is a strawberry sweet vape combined with the rich, creamy smoothness of rice pudding. Rice pudding is a unique flavor.

Creamy and smooth yet with the baked confection dessert quality that has made it a family favorite for many, many generations.
Balancing the flavor of right out of the oven rice pudding is the spot on strawberry e-juice flavor.

The combination is spectacular.

I say:

I’ve only ever tried a famous rice pudding e-liquid and didn’t like it at all – however this particular one isn’t that bad.

It’s a deep vape with just enough sweet creaminess though the strawberry is more of a sweeter jam than a fresh one.

The overall effect is an extremely rich vape that’s almost over the top sweet– not an all-day vape for me but those with a very sweet tooth will like this one.

Freeman Cococaine – Cookie and Coconut Vape Juice

cococaine

Freeman say:


A crunchy, delicious cookie topped with toasted coconut. How delicious does that sound? Freeman Cococaine is a cookie and coconut vape juice blend that completely nails that unbelievable straight out of the oven flavor.

Remember fresh from the oven cookies? They made the whole house smell like an Italian bakery on a crisp summer morning in Milan.

Freeman has played a little match-maker here. We introduced the best cookie flavored vape juice and the best coconut flavored vape juice.

I say:

I absolutely loved this one!

The mixologists have nailed the cookie base and that coconut lifts it to a specialist bakery macaroon level – at least my taste buds thought so!

Drink this with a glass of milk and trust me it’s as addictive as the name suggests – a bloody lovely vape but again very rich and not an ADV for me – but definitely one when I’m looking for a bit of luxury!

Freeman Fall Spirit – Apple and Caramel Vape Juice

caramel_apple

Freeman say:


Apple and caramel have formed a long-lasting flavor partnership that can only be called a true classic. Freeman Fall Spirit apple and caramel vape juice is a dessert e-liquid flavor that tastes like a caramel apple.

Who can resist a caramel apple! The candied caramel crust with the nectar sweet apple flavor. Freeman Fall Spirit brings you that delectable candied apple vape juice flavor like no one else.

I say:

Here in the UK we’d call this a posh toffee apple!

This is a very clever piece of blending as the inhale gives you a mouthwatering creamy caramel whack of vapor that is absolutely delicious!

But it’s the exhale where the magic happens as crisp fresh not quite tart apple cleans the palate with a tail end of a sweet spice – oh my this bottle went first – bloody lovely!

Freeman Imagine – Tart and Lemon Vape Juice

lemon_vape_juice

Freeman say:


For those looking for a bold dessert vape flavor, look no further than Freeman Imagine. Imagine is a tart and lemon vape juice flavor.

Yah, like a lemon tart! A pastry crunchy crust and a sweet, smooth, and tart lemon filling. Just like the lemon tarts from your favorite bakery or coffee shop.

A quick, succinct hit of lemon magnificently mellowed by the flaky, melt in your mouth crust.

I say:

Given I absolutely adore lemon flavoured vapes I was looking forward to this one.

This is more lemon curd out of a jar so a little sweet and not enough tang of citrus for me however it’s saved by the stunning pastry base.

The overall effect is a pleasant one though and I reckon dessert lovers will adore this one – a touch more zingy lemon and this would be perfect for my taste.

Freeman Minted – Minty Milkshake

minted

Freeman say:

Freeman Minted is a particularly cool and creamy flavor.
A mint chip milkshake treat that will hit your sweet spot every time.

I say:

Sadly my overall experience of milkshake vapes has not been good – yeah even those very famous ones – so I was more than a little curious with this one.

Will this juice bring the ‘boys to your yard?’

I have to say the smell from the bottle is divine – sadly for me any way the taste wasn’t.

I’ll just leave that there without further comment 😉

Freeman 1885 – Vanilla Milkshake

vanilla_milkshake

Freeman says:


Freeman 1885 revives the original vanilla milkshake recipe.
The authentic vanilla flavor that you only get direct from the vanilla bean. Good vanilla is sharp and pronounced.

I say:

This is actually a very clever piece of blending.

Any mention of vanilla in an e-liquid usually has me thinking over rich over sweet and dare I say a little sickly.

However – I hasten to add – this is a surprisingly good vape that is just about right for my not so sweet tooth – when vaping any way 😉

I see what they mean by good vanilla being sharp and pronounced – this is actually very tasty indeed.

Certainly not an all-day vape but one to definitely indulge yourself with – tastes great with a pint BTW 😉

Final Verdict?

Like all e-liquid ranges there’s always a couple that won’t tickle those tastebuds.

However overall and even with my fussiness there’s a couple of standouts and on the whole the Freeman range is nicely blended and despite being a ‘bargain brand’ they certainly don’t taste cheap and nasty – far from it!

The vapour off all of them is excellent [80/20 PG VG]and trust me at $19.99 for 120mls – yeah you read that right – these are cheap to buy and taste just as good as some of the more famous brands.

At that price they’re well worth a punt – and there’s most definitely no catch – these are pretty good juices!

And do check out the very special complete range bundle offer 😉

I began vaping over 6 years ago and found it easy to give up a 40 per day roll-up habit! Current set-up : Yosta Livepor 160w + Geekvape Zeus RTA - JacVapour DNA 75 + Nautilus 2 for MTL - RX200S + Doge III or Dead Rabbit on desktop when working - not forgetting the VandyVape Pulse squonk kit... A former journalist and now a sort of writer and author...I now have a beard - though not a hipster one - mine looks like a dead badgers bum or as I call it 'distinguished... I'm an Army veteran - love dogs - crochet - embroidery and never happier than with a good book on a beach.
