Celtic Vapours are a UK company based in Swansea, South Wales. They have a wide selection of juices available, spanning about thirty different flavours from a range of tobacco and menthols to basic fruits and then they have a selection of mixed blends.
I have known the guys from Celtic Vapours for quite a while as they attend most of the events in the UK. I did a review for them last year, which you can check out by clicking here. I met them most recently at the London Vape Show hosted by Vape FINDR (you can check out my visit by clicking here). I got to spend a little time with them at the after show party and they really are a great bunch of people.
They had a new range they were launching and asked me if I would review it for them, they gave me the range for the purpose of review. Read on and lets see what I think of them.
The range is a Shake and Vape range and so I have bought nicotine shots for the purpose of the review, so that I can taste them at their full potential.
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.
- Joyetech Cuboid 150W @ 70watts, Geekvape Tsunami 24 with Dual Clapton 0.8ohm coils, wicked with Kendo Cotton
- Aspire Pegasus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Triton2 with Clapton 0.5ohm coil
- Innokin CoolFire plus 70W @ 40watts, Aspire Cleito with 0.4ohm coil
Scent: sour apples.
Flavour: it is well documented that I’m not overly keen on koolada and menthol is juices, but I have been taken by surprise on occasion. This juice has koolada in it and makes the apple flavour come across very cold. I would go as far to say icy. There is also a touch of berries on the exhale.
On the inhale I get this wonderful apple, maybe a touch sour for me which is followed in by a wave of coolness, almost icy at the back of the throat and I can still taste the apple. On the exhale this continues for a short amount of time. As the coolness dies away i get touches or hints of mixed berries in the background. If you like a cool fruity vape, then it is a must try. It is not for me, though I do love the apple flavouring in this juice.
VP Review Rating: 5/10
Scent: cake with fruity tones.
Flavour: I love cake, so I’m quite partial to a cake vape. Smelling this juice certainly got my mouth watering. It is like a vanilla sponge with a mixed fruit filling, though it is a good flavour I was left wishing that the sponge came through just a little more.
On the inhale I get hints of bakery which build into the inhale. On to the exhale I get a delightful vanilla sponge and then I get what comes across to me is a fresh mixed fruit compote/sauce. I hang on hoping for a little more from the vanilla sponge, though not disappointed, left wanting some more. I did have a move around with wattage but not much difference. If they could push that sponge a little more it would be a high scoring juice. As it is, it is still a good ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 7/10
Scent: pear and coconut.
Flavour: what a delightful blend. It is a wonderful fruity and coconut vape, the coconut is not over powering and goes well with the mix of fruits. I’m finding distinguishing the different fruits a little hard with them being put together so well, bringing a unique flavour. I think there is a blueberry and strawberry, I also think that there is a touch of guava. I don’t think there is any pear in there.
On the inhale I get hints from a selection of fruits, nothing really standing out. On to the exhale and this juice just bursts into life, the fine blend of fruits caress my taste buds and then I get this lovely coconut that rides behind to start and pushes further forward, but not to far. Really is a great ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 8/10
Scent: lychee and pomegranate.
Flavour: oh wow, a lovely refreshing juice. I’ve never really been a fan of lychee until just recently. This is the second juice I have found I really enjoy with lychee in it. I find this juice has a great blend of pomegranate, blueberry and the lychee holds it together and smooths out some of the edges.
On the inhale I get the pomegranate which builds into the inhale. On the exhale this is then joined by a really plump, juicy blueberry that explodes. The lychee is like an under layer that the other two fruits are allowed to jump back and forth to my taste buds. Definitely an ADV for me.
VP Review Rating: 9/10
Scent: raspberry with cream tones.
Flavour: this reminds me of a raspberry ripple ice-cream. The raspberry in this juice is fantastic, for me, it comes across like a fresh raspberry coulis which is surrounded with wonderful creamy tones. They have also added a little bit of koolada to give it that cold feel. Though it works well and I find that it is in good measure. Personally I’d rather not have it there, I don’t think that it needs it. But it is not about me.
On the inhale I get some lovely creamy tones and a hint of raspberry right at the back of the inhale. On to the exhale and this is when it all happens, unusually for me the koolada comes first(I usually find I get a hit on the inhale). A short, sharp shock of chilling, as this dies away this wondrous raspberry bursts out hitting and delighting my taste buds with creamy tones in the back ground. It is a very clever piece of mixing, but it’s not for me.
VP Review Rating: 5/10
So to my conclusion, I find that Celtic Vapours with Overlords E-liquids have brought some excellent juices to the market. Though I did say that with The Sultan I probably could do with the cake pushing a little more. All of the juices deliver great flavour and produce some excellent vapour. As with the other flavours from Celtic Vapours these juices show the stand out quality from their mixologists.
The samples I received came in large bottles with child safety caps and a unicorn style top to replace the cap. They are all TPD/TRPR compliant. I love the simplistic labeling, the black on the labels is a carbon fibre look and the with the gold images makes them really stand out. They have a great website which is clear and easy to navigate.
If you require further information on Overlords E-liquid.

I’d like to say thank you to Joe of Celtic Vapours for giving me these juices for review.
