eLiquid Review

This year Free State Vapor is celebrating its first holiday season ever, and it will be a memorable one with their time-limited release of three (3) fantastically flavored eLiquids called the Limited EditionHoliday Trio. The flavors were specifically created for the holiday season, and the flavors will take you back to your favorite memories of Thanksgiving and Christmas’s past. At least they did for the Spinfuel eLiquid Review Team.

Free State Vapor Holiday ‘themed’ organic flavors are Pumpkin Chai Latte, White Chocolate Peppermint, and Baked Spiced Apple, each one better than the last, and each one capturing the magic of the holidays in ways we can only access through taste and smell. These organic flavored eLiquids are perfect for vaping during the season, not to mention great gifts for the Vapers in your life.

The three limited-edition flavors are available in 15ML and 30ML sizes, priced at $35.00 and $59.99. Nicotine strengths are 6mg, 10mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg. Additionally; there is a zero-nicotine available. Our team chose 12mg for the review, but we would definitely consider picking up zero-nicotine for the holiday’s since these flavors smell and taste so good it would provide an opportunity to vape all day long without having to worry about vaping too much nicotine.

The options for PG/VG are 100% VG, 70% PG 30% VG, and a 50:50 blend of PG/VG. For this review we chose 100% VG, something we usually do not do, and were very, very surprised and delighted with our choice. Despite being 100% VG we were still greeted with nice throat hits…not too hard, not too soft.

  • Organic Pumpkin Chai Latte – “Our spin on a holiday favorite. A blend of warming chai spices swirled into velvety pumpkin. Cinnamon and cardamom bring the sweet spices together and make a new holiday favorite. “ Free State Vapor

Tom:  Pumpkin Chai is amazing. I’m really starting to get into ‘chai’ based juices and this one was loaded with it. A delicious pumpkin flavor with lots of spices like a homemade pumpkin pie, and a touch of cinnamon really made it a flavor I could vape year round. Though I would wonder if the ‘special holiday’ feeling would dissipate with time. 4.75 Stars

Julia: I loved Pumpkin Chai Latte. Tons of vapor, a good throat hit, and a deep pumpkin and spices flavor that will have you dreaming of Christmas morning. All three flavors are definitely holiday juice, but this one is the one that had me wanting my mom’s special pumpkin pie two months early. 5 Stars

Keira: Though we received these eLiquids at the very end of October they were mixed and bottled on October 22nd. Just enough time to properly steep, and I was so happy they were. I unscrewed the bottles of all three, and while all gave off warm and cheery aromas, pumpkin chai was the most vivid. It smelled like the holidays and it tasted like the holidays. Pumpkin Chai Latte is loaded with pumpkin and spices and the 100% VG put out an incredible amount of vapor. I even liked the vapor production enough to inhale as deeply as possible in order to let the vapor fill up the immediate area around me. Delicious and fun. 5 Stars!

Jason: I had one problem with Pumpkin Chai Latte and it was the fact that I just did not want to stop vaping it. We had to split a 30ML bottle, less than 10ML each, and it was gone way too soon. I will place an order the day the review comes out because I want to make sure that this intensely pumpkin and spice vape is here for the holidays. 5 Stars

  • Organic White Chocolate Peppermint - A seasonal favorite, refreshing peppermint layered over a milky white chocolate makes an incredible minty treat.

Tom: First, I really, really enjoyed this white chocolate peppermint, but I can’t really taste white chocolate. I mean actual white chocolate, not the flavoring in this blend. White chocolate, too me, has a peculiar flavor, almost a vanilla/chocolate blend that is impossible to decide which way it leans. Other than that, this peppermint and white chocolate blend was delicious. Lots of peppermint flavor too, one of the most flavorful eJuices I’ve had in a while. Packs a throat hit, creates clouds of vapor, and is a flavor that can vaped for hours. Not an all-day for me because the peppermint would wind up getting to me, but one I could, and did, vape for hours on end. For some strange reason I kept thinking that a touch of raspberry would have made it perfect, and I had no idea why. 4.5 Stars

Julia: I loved the peppermint flavor in this one, a sweet peppermint that reminded me of the flavor of a real peppermint stick. Keira and I both experienced ‘white chocolate’ confusion, like Tom did. I will say this, the white chocolate gave this a silky smoothness I did not expect, but certainly appreciated. Of the three flavors, White Chocolate Peppermint is the one I would vape at Christmas parties. It is more “festive” than the others. For peppermint lovers, this is a holiday must-have juice. 4.75 Stars

Keira: Do you know the peppermint sticks you can buy that have a rough finish on the outside, like millions of tiny air holes, and melt in your mouth if you bite off a piece? These are my favorite peppermint sticks, and they don’t make good Christmas tree ornaments, but they are so delicious. That’s the peppermint flavor I got from this eLiquid. Julia is exactly right about the silkiness that the white chocolate gave this juicy blend. Tons of vapor, a good throat hit, and flavor-packed, Organic White Chocolate Peppermint is a happy holiday vape. 5 Stars

Jason: All three of these eJuice flavors in the Holiday Trio must have taken all year to perfect. The delicate balance of white chocolate, with a sweet peppermint bite is something special. Just how do you create an eLiquid that is both slippery sweetness and filled with a peppermint edge? I was blown away by the complexity of this flavor. I was also really sad when it was gone. I’ll get more very soon, and squeeze them in among the other seasonal vapes I’ll enjoy this year. If you like peppermint, you have to try it. 5 Stars

  • Organic Baked Spiced AppleA Spinfuel Choice Award Winner Nothing says the holidays are here more then the smell of baking apples. We have taken the heart of an apple pie and bottled it. Cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and apples dance harmoniously in this ode to apple pie.

Tom: I made the mistake of asking my girlfriend to try this one. The only reason I did is because she loves several different apple pie eLiquids and I knew she would like it. The ‘problem’ was that she wanted it all, not just a few drags. So I wound up splitting my portion with her, and we both vaped it until it was gone, in a single sitting. The taste of this apple flavor is the taste you get in the apple pie with raisins and spices. In other words, an apple pie with 10x times the flavor of a basic apple pie. I would vape this one all year round (the Pumpkin Chai Latte too!) without blinking. Solid sweet apple pie flavors, delicious spices, and so much sweet aromatic vapor that a friend walked into my living room the night we vaped it all up and wanted to know where the pie was, he wanted a slice! Absolutely true. That is authentic! 5 Stars

Julia: I’ve had several delicious apple eLiquids in my time, but this one is special. This one has more flavor in a single drag then many of them do in a whole bottle. Free State Vapor made all 3 of these holiday vapes very, very flavorful, and of the three this is was most flavorful. Deliciously aromatic spicy apple that produced tons of vapor, a good throat hit, and  true, honest flavor of baked apples made in November and December. I couldn’t believe how much this one reminded me of Thanksgiving and Christmas. 5 Stars

Keira: I understand, I really do, that eLiquids taste different to just about everybody. But I will guarantee you right now that if you like the baked apples or thick, juicy apple pies that are made during the holiday season, the ones with plenty of spices that are left out during the rest of the year, this is an eJuice you will love. It has everything you need to replicate the pleasures of enjoying a rich, spicy slice of apple pie or a baked apple, but in vapor form. Which means you don’t have to worry about packing on a few pounds during the holidays…well, at least not by your vaping. I loved this so much that I’m going to stock up on it so I can enjoy it well in the next year. Tons of vapor, tons of flavor, and a better throat hit then anyone would expect from 100% VG. The perfect Holiday Vape. 5 Stars

Jason: Julia hit it on the head; the apple pie you can buy, or make if you can bake, with all those spices, and the addition of raisins (you can’t taste raisins, we’re both alluding to those specific pies), is exactly what Baked Spiced Apple is all about. I’m glad I got the chance to vape this one for 3 or 4 hours, but what I really wanted was my own 30ML bottle.

On the night that Keira and Julia were vaping their Baked Spiced Apple I drove down to deliver some vaping supplies. I walked in the door and they were sitting on the couch, which is about 10 feet from the foot door. As soon as I walked in I thought they had made a delicious apple ‘something’ and in an instant I got really hungry and wanted a slice of apple pie. When I found out it was the eJuice I made the decision to vape my share of it when I got home, instead of waiting for the next day when I was supposed to start vaping it.

Baked Spiced Apple is loaded with flavor, it’s a vapor lovers dream come true, and it has a really nice throat hit. There is no way this one misses out on a Spinfuel Choice Award. 5 Stars

This Holiday Trio is a must buy. If you have any interest in picking up seasonal eJuice to vape during the holidays this 3-pack is the answer. Each flavor is delicious, flavor-packed, and produces tons of vapor and delivers good throat hit. But, even more important, they have the power to make the worse Scrooge into someone filled with holiday cheer. All 4 of us said the same thing about this 3-flavor prize. If you could distill the holidays down to 3 flavors, these are it.

So, buying advice is easy. If you can afford to get the Vapers in your life the Holiday Trio in 30ML bottles ($59.99) then that is what I suggest you do. They will love you for it, they really will. If $60 for each of the Vapers on your shopping list is too much then get the 15ML Holiday Trio.

The Holiday Trio by Free State Vaporis a rare combination of three distinct, and magnificent holiday flavors. Flavors that will transport you into the holiday season a couple of weeks early. Order today and they will be at their peak in mid-November. If you get your order in sometime this week you can begin vaping your own Trio late next week (or maybe earlier depending on the mixing day on the label) and by the time Christmas morning rolls around the Trio will be even more flavorful than they were when we vaped them. I can’t imagine a more flavorful eLiquid for Christmas morning vaping.

Available only during the months of November and December, these Limited Edition flavors are all “must have’s”.

Pros
  • Three Organic Flavored Holiday Treats
  • Post Card Greeting
  • Gifting Options
Cons
  • Available for short time
  • You may not want to vape anything else for the next two months
  • May cause you to vape more than usual
