Introduction to Apollo “Due Time” Eliquid Range
Due Time is part of the overall Apollo e-liquid offering. A brand that have prided themselves on having a future facing vision. Even their “about us” section on their website reads like that blurb from a sci-fi novel.
They boast 20 e-liquid lines and over 400 different types of e-liquid. Keen to taste some Californian flavour to see if it would improve my surfing (I can’t surf), I quickly tore through the packaging to be greeted with 3 quite cool looking bottles.
Always keen to give any new vape produce a go I quickly popped the caps and had a good sniff. I have to admit that the smell was really quite good which had me nodding my head and hmmm-ing in positive way. The smell was rich, clean and indulgent. I was keen to get dripping!
The bottles came in a 60ml offering and as they came straight from the US they had been steeped with 6mg of nicotine. However in the UK this line will come in a 50ml shortfill, allowing you to add your own nic-shot if you wish to.
I received this sample free of charge for the purpose of this review and as always, my views are my own.
Please remember that tastes are subjective, and your experience may be different to mine.
For this review I used my SX-Mini G Class and the 24mm Dead Rabbit RDA with Fused Clapton coils coming in at 0.12Ohms, cleaned and re-wicked between each flavour.
Apollo Due Time | Crisp Fuji
A delicious sweet Fuji apple bursting with flavour, perfect for an all day vape!
A good squeeze of the bottle really piqued my interest in this flavour. The smell was of very ripe green apples. It really did invite me to drip as quickly as I could.
A couple of puffs on this and I wasn’t disappointed. The fruitiness is undeniable. I’d go so far as to say this is the best apple e-liquid I’ve tasted. It wasn’t fake or forced and there wasn’t a hint of a chemical taste.
I kept going back to this flavour during my working day as it was so crisp and refreshing. it had a lightness to it that I have struggled to find in an apple flavour. As I like my apples straight from the fridge and because it was so fresh tasting I think it could have worked better if there was a slight coolness to it to really promote the freshness of flavour.
Vapour production is a little on the light side, but there’s plenty of it! Of the 3 I in the range the Crisp Fuji was definitely the one I’ll remember the most.
If you like a really fresh fruit hit, then you’ll probably like Crisp Fuji.
Apollo Due Time | Vanilla Bean Milkshake
A pure, vanilla bean milkshake blended to perfection
The smell was like mushed up Oreo centres and I say that as a good thing! Dense and luxurious, you can almost smell the full body on this particular flavour. As I was dripping I wouldn’t have been surprised if I’d seen little flecks of vanilla pod.
This flavour is definitely one for your quiet time. I’m not sure how a flavour can be mellow yet rich at the same time, but this is.
This is an extreme dessert flavour and I found I enjoyed it best with a milky coffee and a newspaper, definitely one for savouring.
The vanilla notes are the most prominent, but the creaminess is rich and ice-cream like. If that has you sold, I suggest you pick some up as soon as you can.
Apollo Due Time | Lemon Bar
Sweet and tart lemon custard over graham cracker crust and topped with sweet whipped cream and a hint of raspberry
There’s definitely lemon curd in this one! Personally I’d have preferred a little bit more tarty-ness to this one. I really think the biscuity base is a little bit more prominent.
That being said the flavour is really good and rounded. It is certainly true to form and I really felt like I had a mouthful of lemon pie. But the cream and raspberry were definitely lost on me. But that could just be my palate.
For me, it didn’t quite match up to the freshness offered by Crisp Fuji or the boldness of Vanilla Bean Milkshake.
I would have preferred that the lemon was a little more present, but that being said that overall flavour did work quite well.
All of the Due Time e-liquid bottles came without a VG/PG ratio listed on the label. But with a bit of internet digging I found them all to be listed as Max VG. But in the technical data they were listed as 80VG/20PG, so I’m sticking with that.
The clouds were good, if a little on the thin and light side for me. The flavours were all long lasting and of good quality.
I feel as though Apollo really given us a range that we can really enjoy in our due time. After a long days work or a weekend running around after the kids, I really did kick back and enjoy some time to myself with all 3 of these flavours.
If you find any of these flavours sound like they are for you and you pick them up I would love to hear how your experience differs from mine.
