Johnny’s Shake Vapes , a UK based company, first came to my attention on twitter via chats about their juices – some very good sounds were coming out of twitter. Then a couple of reviewers that I follow had got their hands on some and I watched their YouTube videos to see what they had to say. Some very good juices it seemed was the general consensus. So with that Johnny’s Shake Vapes went on to my to do list (the list is getting long but that’s a good thing)!
A couple of weeks had passed since adding Johnny’s Shake Vapes to my list when I recieved an unexpected message from them asking if I would do a review of their Vanilla Milkshake. Now I received this message with very mixed feelings. Of course I was extremely delighted that they had approached me to do a review, BUT I have tried a few Vanilla Milkshakes from other companies and did not like them one bit, you can see my predicament.
So I went back to them and I suggested that I would pay for the rest of his range so I could do a full review of what was on offer. Johnny’s Shake Vapes gave me a great deal on the rest of the range, which made it four flavours to review on their way to me. I should add, that I was very much looking forward to the other three.
So, as we have established: Johnny’s Shake Vapes offers four juices which are based on vintage 1950s American diner milkshakes.
The juices are all 70VG/30PG mix. They are sold in 30ml at £11.99 and they all come in 0.3mg, 0.6mg, 1.2mg with two of the juices now coming in 0mg nicotine strengths (Vanilla and the Strawberry Cheesecake).
I got all mine in 0.3mg nicotine strength. They have a couple of deals, 3 x 30ml for £27.99 and 2 x 100ml for £48.00, but they also have flash sales on twitter.
With no further a do I’ll get on with the review, but first, grab your hats and coats we’re off to America! A little whistle stop tour of the States and let them serve us up some shakes!
- Aspire Pegasus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Cleito with 0.4ohm coil.
Delaware Strawberry Cheesecake
So first stop Delaware. We find ourselves a quaint old American diner and ask for a strawberry cheesecake milkshake (they offer pancakes, but its not a pancake day, its all about the milkshake).
Tasting this juice – I had a moment. One of those moments when you are forced to stop what you are doing, your eyes roll back and you are in heaven. This is unbelievable juice! The strawberries are fresh and blended with an amazing cream sensation. Its like a creamy strawberry on the inhale with a creamy, smooth vape on the exhale.
Very much an ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 9/10
Connecticut Spice Biscuit
So we head off to Connecticut and in the diner we find that the server is rather butch (and a little bit scary) – she frowns and grunts when we ordered our milkshake.
Well this certainly has a bite to it! With a slightly nutty, cinnamon inhale and then the gingerbread gives you a superb kick on the exhale with the wonderful creamy under tones of the milkshake. Not an ADV for me, but certainly an excellent way to spice things up occasionally.
VP Review Rating: 7/10
Louisiana Banana Split
As we hit Louisiana, we find a diner where all the servers are on roller skates and we can hear the chef singing along to some classic Motown on the duke box.
Now, as banana vapes go, until just recently I wouldn’t have touched them with a barge pole. I have always found them overly sweet and sickly. I think that this juice hits me more subtly than others and so I have enjoyed it.
Something that is unheard of in my house ‘a tank refill‘ but this juice did just that. One tank was not enough, I yearned for more! It’s an adorable creamy banana on the inhale with the morish vanilla milkshake on the exhale. I can’t believe I’m saying it, an ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 8/10
So, one more to go, not that I wasn’t looking forward to it, but more that my expectations were not very high. So in the airport before my return flight home, I nip into the diner there an order myself a shake. In true American style it came in a tall stemmed glass, served with lashings of cream, a large straw and lucky me- a little umbrella.
OH MY GOODNESS!! This was divine, spectacular, a wonderfully smooth and delightful vape. I could not get enough of this! The key for me with this excellent juice is the simplicity of it. This is Johnny’s signature and what a signature, it’s makes all the other juices make even more sense. Is it an ADV? oh yes it is!
VP Review Rating: 10/10
So to my conclusion: thank you, thank you Johnny’s Shake Vapes for coming into my life!
They have a very good website which has American images and is easy to navigate. The juice is very consistent through the range and the vapour production is magnificent. The bottles are oval in shape and very ergonomic to use, they have a child safety cap and a very easy to use drip tip.
Though there are only 4 juices, these are four juices that have been put together with excellence and great care. I really look forward to see what comes next.
Edit: Since this review Johnny’s Shake Vapes have a new juice which you can check out my review of it here.
Edit: There is another new juice go and check it out by clicking here.
Its funny, how at first the juice I thought I would like the least, actually is my favourite and I don’t know how I will live my life without having some of this available in my cupboard (a slight exaggeration but I think you see what I’m getting at).
I would most definitely recommend all you cream vape lovers to check Johnny’s Shake Vapes out.
