The Milkman is undeniably the most famous shepherd in the world of vape. His van has been delivering and delivering tens of thousands of The Milkman’s bottles for a few years in all its various colors. Navigating on the official Milkman e-liquid website, you will discover that the real producer of this line of liquids is The Vaping Rabbit. Earlier, for the Milkman line, we reviewed Churrios. Are you lost it? Here it is!
Today we are dealing with the e-liquid Pudding, marked by a yellow pack. The advent of the TPD unfortunately obliged the manufacturer to modify the delicious packaging that took on the features of a real milk carton, of those used until a few decades ago. The original packaging has now been replaced by a simple box containing three 10 ml each (very rigid and hard) PET bottles with all the information required by the European Directive. Graphics have fortunately remained identical to those of the original pack.
The Milkman is already back with another brand new flavor! The geniuses behind the Vaping Rabbit line of premium e-juice are taking us all on our fourth high-flavor journey with Pudding by The Milkman. Pudding is a rich and decadent, creamy vanilla pudding with sweet lemon overtones that handily meets the high standards of excellence you’ve come to expect from The Milkman. This is definitely a must-try flavor.
To the smell, a decidedly alcoholic background blubberly blurs a vanilla base practically inseparable from the olfactory point of view, as it is, heavily trampled with the notes of alcohol. Prerequisites are certainly not reassuring for the proof i do not decide to run right now by using my Recoil dripper set in dual coil at about 0.3 ohm.
At vape, the alcoholic pressures perceived by the smell are slightly reduced, leaving a clear trajectory especially in the inspiration phase. The effect is not the best because it limits the appearance of the vanilla base on the one hand, and on the other, worse, it gives a sense of artificiality to the whole e-liquid. It is a mistake that we would not have expected from this pluriffed line! Perhaps the product did not receive the necessary steeping time to allow the ethyl alcohol used for its preparation to evaporate completely.
Therefore, the tare of the alcohol that should not appear in the aromatic perception of the liquid, I can easily distinguish a vanilla base not too creamy, which seems common and rather trivial in its features and which, with a certain monotony, The dumped in its distinct phases. The only real variation on the subject, if one can be considered, is represented by light citrus (lemon) inserts, which lightly enliven the vanilla aroma.
So packaged, Pudding paradoxically looks like a simple and unobtrusive sum of the ingredients that make up it: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, ethyl alcohol, vanillin, ethyllilmaltol, milk lactones, levulinic acid, 2,3-dimethylpyrazine, natural and artificial flavors. In summary, alcohol, vanillin plus flavors and additives to simulate the flavor of lemon and a dense and creamy compound that should remember a pudding.
The result is a not unpleasant compound that is clear but totally inadequate for the high quality standards that have been used by the entire steaming industry for quite some time. Pudding 4-5 years ago would be a good product, today a little less. A recipe too simple and trivial made with some imperfections.
A simple vanilla with slight nuances of lemon domesticated with vague smells of milk are not enough to positively judge this e-liquid, especially when it is accompanied by an avoidable alcoholic background.
After weaving the praise of the excellent Churrios, today we can only write down a decisive step back from the Californian producer. However, the milk can always make up with its next creations.
Pro: An unsuccessful product does not blur the image of the Californian manufacturer.
Cons: A common e-liquid with a clear alcohol background.
