Nasty Juice are a Malaysian company. They are one the largest companies in Malaysia and they hit the UK scene in the summer of last year and have been making quite a stir on the UK market. They arrived with a six juice range which you can get with or without menthol/mint and they have recently added a further range, Yummy Fruity Series with three juices.
I was lucky enough to attend the Vaper Expo UK – The Return in October last year (you can read about my visit by clicking here) and I met up with the guys from Nasty Juice. They asked me if I would do a review and gave me the full range (with mint) for the purpose of review.
So VP, why would you accept a full range of menthol juices when you don’t like menthol? I hear you say.
Yes, it is well documented that I don’t vape menthol/mint juices as a personal choice. But, I do know a good juice when I taste one. Another reason is that since attending events I have met quite a few Malaysian companies and have been really impressed with the quality of their menthol/mint vapes. I love how they present the fruits within these juices, I did a review of another Malaysian company and was really impressed (if you would like to check that out click here).
When I first heard of Nasty Juice I did think what a bizarre name to call your juice. But then it got me thinking, maybe, just maybe it’s actually because I am no longer ‘down with the kids’. Maybe it’s like how ‘sick’ is used to describe something cool or wicked.
Read on and lets see if I find this juice nasty or nasty. Did you like what I did there?
In the UK you can buy Nasty Juice from a whole host of vendors and you will probably find that one of your local shops also have it in stock. I will give you the prices from www.TheVapersClub.co.uk which you can also get to by using www.NastyJuices.co.uk at present it is 50ml for £15.99, you can them in 0, 3 and 6mg nicotine strength and they are a 70VG/30PG mix.
With no further a do, I’ll get on with the review.
Devices used, wattages shown are starting wattages and I will change wattages to see if there are any changes:
All testing is done with;
- Joyetech Cuboid 150W @ 70watts, Geekvape Tsunami 24 with Dual Clapton 0.8ohm coils, wicked with Kendo Cotton
Further testing I will use either of the following;
- Aspire Pegasus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Triton2 with Clapton 0.5ohm coil
- Innokin CoolFire plus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Cleito with 0.4ohm coil
Scent: sweet pineapple.
Flavour: the pineapple in this juice is divine, it comes across as though the pineapple is slightly over ripe making it very juicy.
On the inhale I get a lime soda to start and then the menthol/mint takes over. On to the exhale and the mint calms to this rich juicy pineapple which is lovely. I find this juice very moreish and an ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 8/10
Scent: mixed berries with hints of grape.
Flavour: this juice took me by surprise, it came across as a fruity bubblegum with the mint. Now, it is well documented that I really do not like bubblegum. But bizarrely I really like this juice, everything works really well, I’m not keen on grape either and how they have done this grape is probably the best grape flavour I have tried to date.
On the inhale I get this grape that is juicy and doesn’t have sour notes. Followed in by the menthol/mint. On to the exhale the grape comes further forward and is joined by a berry flavoured bubblegum. It is quite extraordinary and a unique flavour, a must try. Dare I say it? An ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 9/10
Scent: fresh mango.
Flavour: I have found that there are two types of mango that companies go for, some companies go for the sweet juicy over ripe mango flavour and other companies go for the fresh mango that has bitter notes and not so sweet. Neither are wrong and it is down to personal preference to which you may like. For me, I love the over ripe type sweet and juicy. This juice however is the other type and for me is a great likeness to a fresh mango that isn’t quite ready to eat.
On the inhale I get three parts to it, at first this fresh mango not too sweet, I then get the menthol/mint with what seems like a shot of sweetness that becomes very apparent. On to the exhale and the mint calms leaving me with a bitter mango taste (not off putting) and there is something else trying to come through, another fruit, but I cannot tell what it is. It’s not for me.
VP Review Rating: 5/10
Scent: a honeydew melon
Flavour: I have found the menthol/mint considerably lighter in this juice and I also get a back note of bubblegum again.
On the inhale I get a very true honeydew melon which is followed in by a lighter menthol/mint. On to the exhale and I get the melon that accentuates and joined by what tastes to me like a bubblegum in the background. Is there meant to be a bubblegum flavour? If you like a fruity bubblegum and menthol vape then this maybe for you. It is not for me.
VP Review Rating: 5/10
Flavour: wow, oh my goodness, this juice delivers a really good flavour. Probably one of the most popular flavours in the UK – blackcurrant and menthol.
On the inhale I am hit with a power punch of delightfully juicy blackcurrant and a menthol/mint that follows in very closely behind. On the exhale the blackcurrant is soon fighting its way forward to leave you with a heavenly blackcurrant flavour on the palate. I want to go back for more and for it not to stop coming. Is it an ADV? Certainly is.
I reckon that this is probably their best seller in the UK.
VP Review Rating: 10/10
Scent: blackcurrant with hints of lemonade.
Flavour: when I first smelt this juice I thought why do another blackcurrant juice? and then I tasted it and I completely see why. A wonderful combination and it delivers quite a different experience.
On the inhale I get a softer blackcurrant than Bad Blood, with hints at a lemonade in the background, I found the menthol/mint to be slightly harder hitting. On to the exhale and as the mint calms the blackcurrant pops back in, but it is joined by this luscious soft and smooth lemonade, like a cloudy lemonade. This is really good and an ADV for me.
I did question whether this might be their best seller, but no, I stand by what I previously said.
VP Review Rating: 10/10
So to my conclusion, I have found that Nasty Juice has brought some excellent juices to the market. These Malaysian companies really do know how to put together a fruity menthol vape, they certainly have changed my opinion on menthol vapes. After looking at the website I don’t see any mention of bubblegum in any of the juices, so I’m not sure if it was intended or it is just how I have found them, they are still very good none the less.
All of the juices deliver some great full-bodied flavours and though I didn’t particularly like them all, I certainly would recommend them. That’s the beauty of a range, to appeal to as many different types of tastes. All the juices produce some excellent vapour. The juices come in these really cool metal bottles with some bright and colourful labelling and they came with child safety caps and pipettes.
The only down side I have found with the juice is that I would put in the class of ‘Coil Killer’ with the addition of sweeteners they can affect your coils. If you are dripping then this isn’t too much of a problem as you can clean your coils regularly. It does however affect the longevity of stock coils. Just a note to keep in mind.
Nasty Juice have a great website that is vibrant and colourful, it is also easy and clear to navigate. You should check them out on Instagram as they seem fairly active on there. If you are heading to Vape Jam UK this weekend then you will be able to go and check them out. Oh and if you are there look out for me and come and say hi. I’m hoping that they will be showcasing their Yummy Fruity Series as I would like to have a try. I would also be interested to see how these juices are without the mint.
I would highly recommend going and checking out Nasty Juice.
You can also find them on social media;
