Best E-Liquids for 2018 Chosen by 200 Vapers

When I was tasked with discovering the best e-liquids for 2018 I had no idea what to do. How in the world does anyone choose 10 e-liquids out of the thousands of brands and flavors all over the US, not to mention the world? An impossible task, to be sure. I was assured it could be done, all I had to do was to think. So that’s what I did… for weeks.

Best E-Liquids for 2018 – SPINFUEL VAPE

Best E-Liquids for 2018 Cannot be Chosen by One Person

As the managing editor of Spinfuel VAPE, I also do all the purchasing. One morning, while racking my brain about how to approach this impossible assignment, my boss, the publisher, sent me a text asking me to reorder another 10 60mL bottles of the “only” e-liquid he vapes; KILO Black Series Birthday Cake. My initial thought was that it seemed too early to reorder, so I looked back at our previous purchases.

 

I noticed that by the way we were ordering Birthday Cake that John was vaping, on average, about 30mL a day, or one 60mL bottle every other day. Because my boss used to vape all types of e-liquids for 5 years, I decided I’d asked him about it. I wanted to know why he had zeroed in on Birthday Cake for more than a year, purchasing about 5x 60mL bottles a week.

It’s my Winston Lights in a Box

My boss told me that after all the hundreds of flavors and brands he had tried since 2011, early last year everything he tried just did not compete with the lush flavor and deep clouds of KILO Birthday Cake, so he made the decision to stick with that one flavor, that, was for him… the BEST E-Liquid on the market. For Him.

 

When the vast majority of Vapers were smoking cigarettes, they had a “brand”. Marlboro, Winston, Newport, Kool, whatever. Some, a great many actually, preferred either the “soft pack” or “box”. For my boss, his brand for a couple of decades was Winston Lights…. In a Box. He told me the Winston Lights in the soft pack were “awful”, compared to the Box. Apparently, he was not the only one. Since I began researching for this Best E-Liquids for 2018, it turns out a lot of people had this kind of preference.

 

For the past year and then some, John always vaped Birthday Cake, 3mg nicotine, in 4 sub-ohm tanks. While the tanks changed over the course of the year, he chose them for their ability to bring out the particular flavor of Birthday Cake. I think maybe that relates to Winston Lights in a soft pack vs hard pack, or box.

 

Using this method of thinking about the Best E-Liquids for 2018, I decided to ask a couple of hundred ex-smokers and now Vapers, if they too had their version of their cigarette brand, in an e-liquid. If so, maybe there were certain eliquids that were common among these 200+ Vapers, and the ten most common e-liquids would make ideal picks for the Best E-Liquids for 2018. For Vapers looking for that “one” flavor, one of the ten chosen had to fit the bill. Well, surely not for everyone, we all have our favorites, but for Vapers that don’t want to spend a couple of thousand dollars trying every brand and flavor combination they can find, these ten would make an excellent start.

Best E-Liquids --- One More Thing...

Note* Not everyone has limited themselves to a single eliquid. In fact, of the 200+ people I emailed with, talked to on the phone, or met in person, only 3 others had done what John had done, chosen ONE e-liquid to vape 100% of the time. But nearly all of them had their “favorite”, which they vaped 60-80% of the time, leaving some room for exploration, especially those that had subscriptions to Vape Box. Adventurous Vapers like to try many different e-liquids, while still maintaining that “go-to” juice.

For 2018, these ten best e-liquids were chosen more often than any others, as the go-to eliquid for more than 200 Vapers in the US and UK. Oh, and there were two others that kept popping up as great choices that I have included as “bonus” e-liquids.

Vape Breakfast Classics - French Dude

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

French Dude by Vape Breakfast Classics is clearly of the most talked about, and enjoyed, e-liquids among the 200+ people I talked to. It is a carefully crafted, authentic, though very sweet,  french toast, with a buttery batter and a hint of cinnamon. On top of that is a remarkably authentic blueberry undertone flavor, then splashed with whipped cream, and drizzled with a sweet maple syrup. “Incredible” was the word used to describe this classic.

Naked 100 - Go Nanas

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

Personally, I’ve always had a special place in my flavor rotation for a good banana e-juice. As much as I liked and respected Naked 100 brand, I was not so sure that a banana flavor profile was inn their wheelhouse. Boy was I surprised. Go Nanas reminds me of a certain G2 banana eliquid I was hooked on back inn 2014. I was beside myself when this one came up over and over while communicating with the 200+ other Vapers. For a modern/retro banana e-liquid, you can trust Naked 100 to deliver.

Go Nanas is a pure and sweet banana blend by Naked 100 Cream . It is a spin on the classic fruit and cream flavor profile, delivering sweet fresh bananas in a fluffy surrounding of cream for a smooth and sumptuous banana custard unlike an other. Go Nanas is a part of the Naked 100 Cream Collection.

FRYED - Cream Cake

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

The Spinfuel Eliquid Review Team spent a few days vaping all the flavors from FRYD, and while all of them were outstanding, more than one of us fell head over heels for this actual “Twinkie” vape experience. However, it was a real surprise to see this one come up again and again in our discussions with Vapers. FRYD is fairly new, so for Cream Cake to come up as one of the best e-liquids of 2018, that says something about the future of this very special brand. Element Vape snapped this flavor up as soon as they could.

Cream Cake by FRYD E-Liquid delivers a true American classic with a sweet fried cake batter fried to a golden perfection stuffed with cream. A Twinkie-esque treat.

FRYD E-Liquid – Cream Cake Features:

Beard Vape Co - #42

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

For a long time we’ve heard people talk about e-liquids from Beard, but for some reason we never approached them about a Team Review. Perhaps it was their naming structure for their flavor blends, or maybe it was something else. Whatever it was, after Beard e-liquids came popping up again and again, we reached out and purchased #42 and Tan, and we finally understood. An all-day-vape that is simply amazing in a premium sub-ohm tank, This is one juice we’d never turn our backs on. I understand now why Beard e-juice is on this list.

No. 42 by Beard Vape Co. is a sensation delivery of a refreshing fruit medley in a cup topped with a drizzle of sweet whip cream.

Beard Vape Co – Tan

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

The Chai Latte in e-juice form has been a major winner with the Spinfuel VAPE Team for years. Yet, somehow, our own ignorance caused us to overlook this incredible Chai Latte from non other than Beard. If Chai Latte is your thing, then you’ll know why so many of our contributors chose this one.

Tan by Beard Vape Co. is a sensational blend of bold chai latte added with a hint of cinnamon spice for a beverage-flavored vape unlike any other. Part of the latest COLOR collection from Beard Vape Co., deploying a line-up of vibrant flavors.

Charlie’s Chalk Dust – Uncle Meringue

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

While I’ve vaped my share of Charlie’s Chalk Dust, I’ve never vaped anything this fantastic from them. Uncle Meringue is such a fantastic all-day-vape of authentic sherbet on top a creamy base. I would buy this one by the caae if I could. Totally understand why this one made the list, but I’ll never understand why it seems to fly under the radar.

Uncle Meringue is the third rendition of the meringue pie series, delivering a vibrant base of rainbow sherbet pie topped with a cool meringue for a chilly yet dessert blend unlike any other.

Uncle Meringue Features:

  • 60mL Squeeze Bottle

Mr. Macaroon – Salted Caramel

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

Mr Macaroon e-liquid line was reviewed by our team and they all were awarded a Spinfuel Choice Award. For good reason. Here’s what Tom said in the review: “There are times when you find an eliquid that goes straight to your pleasure center and opens the floodgates, and Salted Caramel is mine. Something about vaping such a deep rich dessert flavor that produces clouds of vapor so thick that it digs a hole in your brain and makes a home there.”

Salted Caramel by Mr. Macaron pays homage to the world’s famous French confectionery, infused with rich caramel and sprinkled traces of sea salt within the lightness and fuffy profile of freshly-baked macarons.

  • 60mL Glass Bottle
  • Dropper In Bottle

Cuttwood – Mr. Fritter

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

Honestly, a few years ago Cuttwood was everywhere in the vape community. I think after all this time, that was the reason we never reached out to review the Cuttwood line. We wanted to review e-liquids that delivered one flavor and vapor, not reputation and PR. Still, no matter what, Cuttwood kept coming up over and over, especially Mr. Fritter. When we got to Mr Fritter we began to recognize that cinnamon is a flavor component on the mind of way more Vapers than anyone ever thought.

Mr. Fritter by Cuttwood is the latest signature blend from the highly-acclaimed e-juice line, delivering a sensational and warm fritter featuring the perfect balance of juicy apple and sweet cinnamon infused with Cuttwood’s personal mix of secret ingredients. A 60mL offering of a classic flavor by The Sauce Boss.

  • 70% VG
  • 30% PG
  • Dropper In Bottle
  • Made in USA
  • Available nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg

The Milkman – Little Dipper

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

This one, the Little Dipper by The Milkman, always stocked at Element Vape, is hugely popular amongst the 20o Vapers I worked with to develop this list. Thing was, why hadn’t I, or any of the Spinfuel Staff every have this one on our radar? All of use had vaped a sugar cookie flavor profile, but none of us had vaped this one. Before we put it, or any of the other on an official list, we had to spend a few days with it. It didn’t have to be any of the staff’s “go-t0” all-day-vape, to each his/her own, but we had to at least understand why so many had chosen it. So, that’s what we did. We ordered 3x 60mL bottles in 3mg nicotine and assigned a new SMOK Prince and 2 extra TV12-Pince-X6 (get these coils!) The X6 with the Little Dipper produced massive flavor and huge clouds. (MaxVG will do that)

Our findings for the Little Dipper by The Milkman was that it had a sweet, simple flavor profile made of sugar cookies and dipped in an glass of  milk. A rich all-day-vape that took us by surprise. but at least we now know why this juice, manufactured by the genius behind Vaping Rabbit.,,   found itself  being vaped by 125 ofd the 200 responders. 

Little Dipper by The Milkman Features:

  • 60mL Bottle
  • Dropper In Bottle
  • Max VG
  • Made in USA
  • Available nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg

Kilo E-Liquids – Black Series – Birthday Cake

A Best E-Liquids for 2018

And now for our publisher’s all-time favorite go-to (100% of the time) Birthday Cake by KILO E-Liquids . The one is one of the four in the signature Black Series. It is one phenomenal dessert blend with a superb classic yellow cake that is then layered with a smooth creamy, vanilla frosting, and then topped off with rainbow sprinkles you can actually taste. A perfect balance of flavors that do not overpower your tastebuds and realizes as an all-day-vape every single day.  KILO Black Series is amazing, and Birthday Cake is the supreme leader of this pack of four masterpieces.

Just this past week we, everyone here, tried to get him to give Little Dipper by the Milkman a real chance, but after vaping a tank of Little Dipper he simply said “I liked it, but I’ll take my usual now. And quickly.” I’m quite the fan as well, but my last all-day-vape, go-to flavor was made by Fancee Juice, it was called MeeseTracks, and like my boss, MeeseTracks was the only e-liquid flavor I wanted to vape. At the time, 30mL bottles were the norm, and 30mL of MeeseTracks sold for $21.95. and today, a bottle containing twice as much e-juice, is just $16.95 (discounted often to even less). Fancee Juice was selling MeeseTracks 6 years ago, and as since gone out of business. It shouldn’t have, but ultimately I believe the owner didn’t have enough faith to hang in there, so say, Vape Dudes, and Gothic Vaper, two companies that share some of the same skills, but these two companies stuck it out and are still going and growing.

Birthday Cake by KILO – Black Series Features:

  • 60mL Black Glass Bottle
  • Dropper in Bottle
  • 70% VG
  • 30% PG
  • Available nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg

And Two Bonus Picks!

Trying to establish the top 10 e-liquids of more than 200 Vapers, Vapers with experience, Vapers that spent a ton of money every month in new gear, building their own coils, or buying top-of-the-line Sub-Ohm Vape Tanks, RTA, and RDTA’s was one of the most difficult things I’ve done for Spinfuel since I began working here in 2008.

 

Collecting the information had to be done in a way that there was no chance of pimping out a name for the hell of it, no promoting a name to invalidate the research, so there were no surveys taken, just email, phone calls, texts, and some snapchats. It took a while to extract the data, and I present them here with no bias toward any of them. Yet…

 

Two additional e-liquids were often talked about, and although they had not yet reached critical mass of being widely accepted among the 200, I got a strong feeling that they would, this year. One of them, Naked 100 Hawaiian Pog, I can understand, Naked 100, created and produced in one of those multi-million dollar labs that make dozens of brands, was, and continues to build brand recognition and they have hired so many “social media influencers” that in the short term at least, huge number of Naked 100 e-juice were going to fly off the shelves. Naked 100 is hot right now, I’m just not that sure they will remain so in the coming year. We shall see.

 

The other one, Pound Cake, made by a company called Glas E-Liquid, is another one I have a lot of experience with. This one was the first pound cake flavor that reproduced the taste, the flavor, of a sweet pound cake to a T. When I purchased my first bottle of Pound Cake by Glas I paid more than $20 for what I believe was a 30mL bottle. There were two reasons I couldn’t stay with Glas; the cost per mL, and the pretentious nature of their marketing. A delicious e-liquid, not a coil killer, but while Glas was positioning themselves as some high-end Rodeo Drive type brand, they were being made in a facility where “less pretentious, less costly” e-liquids were also being made.

Today, wanting to capture the latest information about Glas Pound Cake, I popped over to Element Vape and checked it out. To my surprise, Glas Pound Cake is now available in glass bottles of 75mLfor a small $23.95

Glas E-Liquid – Pound Cake

Pound Cake by Glas E-Liquid is a warm, sweet pound cake blend with just a touch of fresh lemon and “Madagascar” vanilla flavoring. The Glas custom molded bottles give this line of e-liquids a bit of pretentiousness, but I’ll admit some people see elegance. Once of the best pound cake flavors blended so as not to be a coil killer, and is sold today as a very affordable top-of-the-line e-juice. While another pound cake e-liquid is taking the lead, a juice called “Pound It!”, it is a true coil killer, and very inexpensive. There is a good chance, from what I have learned from my 200 Vapers, that seeking the “right” pound cake e-liquid flavor, more and more people are discovering Glas. I just wished they would drop the ultra-expensive bottling and more their juice to 100mL for $20.

Glas Vapor E-Liquid – Pound Cake Features:

  • 75mL Custom Glass Bottle
  • 70% VG
  • 30% PG
  • Made in USA
  • Available Nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg

Naked 100 – Hawaiian Pog

Hawaiian POG by Naked 100 brings tropical fruits to your taste buds in vapor form. It  presents as a smooth, refreshing and delicious blend of freshly squeezed Orange juice, Passion Fruit’s delightfully sweet and tart nectar, and exotically fruity and creamy Guava.  Hawaiian POG is truly an-all-day-vape for those looking for a perfectly balanced flavor. I can’t say that I enjoyed this one very much, I’m always searching for the perfect Pina colada, and this isn’t it. But, time and again, the Vapers I was working with kept expressing interest in this one, and intended to buy more of it this year. Hawaiian POG is about to become a much bigger success than it already is.

Manufactured by The Schwartz.

Hawaiian Pog by Naked 100 Features:

  • 60mL Glass Bottle
  • Dropper In Bottle
  • 70% VG
  • 30% PG
  • Made in USA
  • Available nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg

So, What Have We Learned? Anything?

Another reason I was chosen for this project was because I love statistical analyses. I am in awe that there is nothing in physics that says that; in a city of one million people, on any particular Friday night, all one million could show up at the same restaurant for dinner. Or that all one million citizens of that city will adopt a cat on Saturday. And even though it is certainly possible, it never ever happens.

 

In a way, careful study of statistics can show that the world is predetermined, or just the opposite. It can prove the existence of God to some and prove the non-existence of God to others. Statistics is a passion of mine, it shows that things can be predicted in astounding accuracy, and yet there is room for anomalies so strange it could take your breath away.

 

However, there is no real science of statistics used here to reveal our Best E-Liquids for 2018. The number of people in our survey-that-isn’t-a-survey is too small, and there are hundreds and hundreds of e-liquid flavor profiles that are made and remade by hundreds of brands. Yet, getting 200+ people involved in a 2-week period discussing e-liquids with me, telling me which brands and flavors will always make for a satisfying vape, and hearing the same brand and flavors come up often enough to make some predictions of what people are vaping on a much larger scale, was the best 2 weeks I’ve had at Spinfuel VAPE.

 

Whatever you might think of the these 10, or 12, brands/flavors, keep in mind that in my group of experienced Vapers, Vaper that have used at least 100 other eliquids during their time, these are the ones that kept coming up, unbeknown to each other.

 

The above are certainly not my favorite 12 e-liquids, but I’m willing to bet that for many that read this piece will agree with the finding, and many will not.

 

If you are new to vaping, try some of these, the ones that have a flavor profile you think you might like, and maybe you’ll like them as much as the 200 does. All of these e-liquids are available at Element Vape, because the “buyer” for Element Vape is someone with a lot of talent for choosing to stock products that Vapers will like. I suppose that’s why Element Vape is one of the fastest-growing, most respected online vendors in the United States.
