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 Sweetwater Grape & White Peach from by the manufacturer Volume II line, sold in the Mix&Vape format (50 ml with zero nicotine in a 60 ml bottle).
Ohm Boy describes officially Sweetwater Grape & White Peach:
Sun-kissed Grapes fresh from the vine, perfectly balanced with White Peach for a delicate, sweet fruit sensation.
The smell test shows a discreet alcoholic background, which carries out a fragrance based on grape aroma of a clear American mold. I refer to the typical “grape” aroma that we encountered in many other liquids we reviewed, very far from the grape flavor we are used to have in Italy or France, but which in the e-liquids world enjoys a remarkable palatability, especially in fruity e-juice for summer.
The “grape” scent appears rather penetrating also because it is loaded with a good degree of sweetness, probably thanks to a sucralose reinforcement. It’s an e-liquid with round and, to say the least, cheeky tones, so much to obscure any other possible nuance of the mix. Oh yes, because for example, during the smell test it is impossible for me to perceive any scent that could in any way lead back to the white peach cited in the description. Will this also be in the vape test?
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.
From the first puffs Sweetwater Grape & White Peach smiles at the taste buds of fruit lovers but not overly sweet tastes. In fact, I know how the olfactory premises have been completely overturned, which on the contrary had allowed us to imagine a very sweet fruity, according to the typical tradition of liquid stars and stripes.
Intense lime notes, pleasant but equally sour, immediately embrace in inspiration a very aromatic mix in which the grape is clearly the master. The lime-grape combination is convincing, with the sour notes of lime mitigated by the grape aroma and its slightly sweetish finishes. The aromatizations can however be associated more with the “candy” world than with real fruits, in a style typically made in the USA. In fact, although it may be proudly mentioned in its official description, there are no traces of the Sweetwater grape or the Chasselas grape, as it is more commonly known, or at least no aromatic memory due to the real Chasselas grape.
The moderate aromatic load, however, guarantees a sense of good refinement and general enjoyment on the vape, although not completely natural.
After a few minutes break-in, the taste buds quickly become accustomed to the more acidulous insertions and the liquid becomes more amiable and tasty, especially in the central notes of the vape. The “grape” aroma, with a minimum hint of sucralose, intersects with slight floral nuances that only occasionally allow to filter little peach essences. After some puffs I realize that it is precisely the aromatic strength of the grape aroma that has shaped and transformed the delicate notes of the white fruit into mysterious but somewhat fascinating floral trails.
Floral trails that dissolve, however, in exhalation, bringing out with grace and elegance a velvety and intriguing taste of white peach invoked since the smell test.
The final perception remains however not 100% natural, but it is ennobled precisely by the refined tail notes that make this fruity bouquet absolutely pleasant. Finally, the aromatic load is not excessive, in addition to ensuring a good aromatic post-vaping persistence, it does not completely stun the vaper taste buds. Sweetwater Grape & White Peach has both refined traits and the necessary strength and irreverence to be faced compulsively with long and powerful puffs. Always stable and composed even at high wattages. Good job Ohm Boy!
Pro: Tasty fruity with balanced and not too sweet aromatic tones.
Cons: The taste of white peach is rather shy.
