Ohm Boy is an English e-liquids brand by Oxford Vapors that enjoys an excellent reputation across the UK. This brand appeared in Italy in the last few months, and begun to be known by our vapers thanks also to its presence at Vapitaly 2019. Just during the Vaping Verona event, the Ohm Boy guys gave us some samples of their products to test and review on our blog.
So here we are ready to tell you about the e-liquid Caramel Latte on Ice from by the manufacturer Volume I line, sold in the Mix&Vape format (50 ml with zero nicotine in a 60 ml bottle).
Ohm Boy describes Caramel Latte on Ice so officially:
Layers of authentic coffee, creamy milk and sweet caramel are infused with an icey finish for a delicious latte vape.
In five years of tests and reviews of e-liquids and aromas, we stumbled several times on cafeteria products that make way for the countless creations of the famous American coffee chain Starbucks. Caramel Latte on Ice is one of those products and proves this since the smell test by presenting on the nose with moderation, the typical smell of a Starbucks coffee wrapped in a wider frame with evident caramelized tones. Finally, a thin alcoholic veil closes my “nasal” test, giving me back exactly what one can and generally must expect from an e-liquid of this kind: a creamy base of American coffee, declined according to one of the many recipes proposed by the US chain. In this circumstance the coffee, already by its very nature (that of Starbucks) is not very intense, has a secondary role compared to the creamy and caramelized component.
For the vape test, I rely myself on the surprising and perhaps slightly underestimated Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite, a rebuildable 23 mm atomizer able to express itself at best with different types of e-liquids and in particular in flavor chasing vape.
On vape Caramel Latte on Ice offers in the inspiration phase, a fresh coffee puff, a kind of ice coffee. The aromatic load is rather light, because as expected we are not faced with the strength and intensity of an Italian espresso, but also because in this recipe coffee does not play a role of primary importance. Even the “ice” note appears moderate, expecially at low vape wattage; it is pleasant and almost refreshing…
The heart notes aromatically launch all the sweetness of the caramel and its pleasing hints, well mixed with a light and not very dense creamy component, which actually has all the appearance of a good fresh milk. The e-juice emulates quite well on the palate the taste that releases the famous Caramel Frappuccino Blended Coffee by Starbucks. After all, isn’t this what the British manufacturer wanted to get? But are we sure that we should rejoice in this result?
The coffee infusion nuances, for Italian vapers are too pale in aroma to deserve the title of real coffee, return during the exhalation phase and walk the taste buds with the delicate and praiseworthy ice imprint of this creation. The fresh sensation in exhalation amplifies and improves the post vape aromatic persistence, pleasant and refreshing.
The bouquet appears balanced and composed, certainly not lacking in good taste, but in my opinion it is really too common and not very creative. I think taht this Caramel Latte on ice doesn’t add something new to the many recipes that emulate the Starbucks coffee shop style.
Ohm Boy has the merit of having built a very well balanced liquid, not too sweet and never overdosed, but the risk of confusing this creation with others of the same kind is really very high. So I will remember Caramel Latte on Ice as a good mainstream e-juice that I’m sure will have an excellent commercial success, but too little to earn a place on the International Best E-liquids ever billboard .
Pro: Delicate and fresh creamy e-liquid, for a good all day long vape.
Cons: Common and not very innovative E-liquid.
