No Ordinary Lemon Ensemble
"For this flavour I have used a 510 cartomiser on my WetBox as well as a standard 510 atomiser on both USB and 3.7v Screwdriver MkI.
Packaging: As these are sample flavours that come in sample bottles, there's not much to say about this other than they are nice "glass" sample bottles.
The liquid is a very light yellow colour that is clear and free of any debris. It flows and drips well, meaning that it wicks without any trouble.
The fragrance is that of a sweet lemon cake with strong notes of pie-crust. However, when it is vaped, particularly on the standard 510 atomiser, it is obvious that this is no ordinary lemon ensemble. It takes a little bit for the flavour to fully develop, approximately 5 to 10 minutes of vaping, but when it does the flavour is heavenly. I found that the heat from the cartomiser tended to mask the more subtle layers of this flavour, so it ended up being more of a jumbled mess of flavours without much separation. However, on the standard 510 the lemon curd flavour and the pie-crust, which is more of a sweet shortbread biscuit taste compared to the pie-crust taste of the Apple Pie, are distinct. More often than not, it tastes exactly like having a bite of lemon merangue pie.
The throat hit is average, which is good because it still satisfies but doesn't detract from the flavour experience. It definitely leaves a nice lemon curd after-taste in your mouth. The mixed juice does not leave a dryness in the mouth that I have detected.
Overall, this is a great flavour that is as close to the real thing as I believe it could get. A lot of juices on the market claim to be this or that but when vaped, you only get a hint of the flavour. Lemon merangue pie is different in that it delivers the flavour you are expecting but never overpowers you with cloyingly sweet flavours. Definitely one to try if you like sweet flavours.
