The Swell Co. is an American company based in Los Angeles California. They have a two juice range.
I met Maria Co-Founder of The Swell Co. at Cloud Sessions 4 in Birmingham (If you’d like to check out my visit to Cloud Sessions, click here). We talked about the company and the juices. I was in the process of trying them, when Maria told me that they had a slight amount of menthol, now, anyone who follows me will know I am not a fan of a menthol vape (though recently I have in fact been proven wrong in this). As I don’t hide my feeling very well, my face creased up in disapproval. This was a natural reaction and I do actually believe that I should try something before making judgement. Something that was instilled in me by my parents and I am passing on to my children (just to be quite clear I’m talking about food and not vaping when talking about my children).
Anyway, I tried the juices and was pleasantly surprised, after a discussion over doing a review Maria kindly gave the two juices for the purpose of review. As well documented by myself, events can sometimes give you a false tasting and its not until you get it home you get the true flavour, read on and see what I thought.
At present I cannot find a UK vendor, so I will give you a US vendor (please be aware of shipping costs). At www.Shop.Vaperev.com you can buy both in 30ml bottles for $20.00 (approx. £16.10), they come in 3mg nicotine strength and are a 70VG/30PG mix.
The review I will be conducting will be a scent test from the open bottle of juice and then a flavour test on the devices listed below.
With no further a do, I’ll get on with the review.
- Aspire Pegasus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Triton2 with Clapton 0.5ohm coil
- Innokin CoolFire plus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Cleito with 0.4ohm coil
- Joyetech Cuboid 150W @ 55watts, Geekvape Tsunami 24 with Dual Clapton 0.8ohm coils, wicked with Kendo Cotton
Flavour: this juice I’m afraid doesn’t taste the same as I remembered at the event. I have re-wicked three times and I still get the same results. I’m wondering if I have a bad batch because I really enjoyed this juice at the event.
Throughout the inhale and exhale there is a dull taste of chemicals with slight hints at watermelon in the background and also hints at a coolant, though it does come through with sweet tones as well. It leaves me with a bad taste on the palate.
VP Review Rating: 0/10
Scent: a rich lemonade with hints of strawberry.
Flavour: this juice is much better, much much better. On the inhale a rich lemonade with strawberry dancing around. On the exhale I get the coolant coming through the lemonade at right at the end I get an intense burst of cranberry. It is almost like the coolant pushed the cranberry through leaving me with a sweet fruity and refreshed palate. An ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 7/10
So, to my conclusion, going on the ‘Then‘ juice The Swell Co. have brought a really good juice to the market, bring a well balance, full bodied flavour and excellent vapour production. I believe that there is a problem with the ‘Now‘ juice as it doesn’t taste how I remember from the event. I hope for The Swell Co. that this is a one off, it is possibly unfortunate that it was me that got it. The glass bottles come with child safety caps and pipettes. A good simple logo design on the bottle is affective. The website is simple and easy to use.
I would recommend going and checking out The Swell Co.
