Plume Room Review
It’s been a year, maybe more, since we last visited The Plume Room, and boy how things have changed. (Read Interview Here) The Plume Room is more successful than ever, and their move to Minnesota has served to re-energize their artistry as well as to allow for a big overhaul of their state-of-the-art facility, and they are now able to produce enough juice to satisfy demand. While they still have a 4 to 5 day window from the moment you place your order to the moment it ships, their loyal customers certainly don’t mind. However, because customers do have to wait longer for The Plume Room juice to arrive, is it accurate to say that TPR is a ‘boutique’ vendor, as many people have said?
In our minds a boutique vendor is one that producers their eLiquid in small quantities, using the most expensive ingredients they can find, and producing each bottle by hand, one by one by one. They also have that unique attitude, a certain snobbery that comes from an inflated ego. They also charge big prices for small bottles, as though people will perceive they are getting a better product because they are paying more for it.
Yes, The Plume Room use only top shelf ingredients, they mix each bottle by hand, as the orders come in, they use the best materials for bottling, labeling, and packaging, but they are also the opposite of snobs, they are active in the community and their customer service is top notch. Their customers are loyal because they know ‘The Plume Room’s’ dedication for making the best juice possible is unwavering.
We have no doubt that The Plume Room could charge more for their juice than they do. There are ‘lesser’ vendors that charge more than The Plume Room does, and with all the TLC The Plume Room puts into each and every bottle we’re willing to bet that most of the customers would happily pay more. But Andrea and her team refuse to play that game, no matter how impressive their juice is, no matter how much ‘mystique’ surrounds their brand. A 10ML bottle of The Plume Room juice is just $6.99, and the huge 60ML bottle is just $33.
When The Plume Room develops an eLiquid flavor their focus is what will produce the very best juice. While they are working on a line of juice that is “PG-Free”, their juice today is made with both PG and VG. However, they do not offer a straight up 50:50, 80:20, 70:30, and so on, the ratios are completely dependent on what makes the best juice, what recipe creates a juice that Andrea and her team are willing to stamp their approval on. As you will see below, ratios differ depending on the particular eLiquid. While they may offer a different ratio of PG/VG they have designated their “recommended” ratios where necessary. It is our custom to review the ‘House Blend’, or ‘recommended’ blend.
The nicotine choices are 6mg, 12mg, 18mg and 24mg. The also offer a nicotine-free option for Vapers looking to vape without nicotine. Customers can choose between Cobalt Glass and PET Dripper bottles, all of which are sealed to prevent tampering and to keep fresh. Our bottles arrived in sealed vacuum bags, though not vacuum-sealed. In the past, when we order 60ML bottles of our favorite flavors they did arrive in vacuum-sealed bags, which keep the juice so fresh we’ll willing to bet we could keep them sealed for 50 years and the juice would be as fresh as the day it was made.
We are reviewing ten flavors today, a good cross section of the flavor signature from The Plume Room.
- Banana Pudding – 40:60 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Creamy Chai Latte – 50:50 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Candied Cavendish – 15:85 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Creamy Mint – 40:60 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Vanilla Caramel Frappuccino – 30:70 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Black Cherry Cream Soda – 50:50 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Smooth & Mild Tobacco – 30:70 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Lemon Chiffon Pie – 50:50 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Peanut Butter Crème Pie – 50:50 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
- Banana Mint Milkshake – 40:60 PG/VG – 18mg nicotine
Shipping Times – At the time of this review the official shipping times were 4-6+ Business Days. Although nothing is mass-produced at The Plume Room there are many occasions when the ship time is much shorter.
Hardware – Batteries/Atomizers voltage/wattage/ohms
An assortment of batteries, clearomizers, cartomizers, and tanks were used throughout the review process. Some effort was made to vape various flavors using different coils, atomizers, etc., rated at different ohms and used at different voltages and wattage. They are noted in the individual’s remarks below, where necessary. Because the PG/VG ratios were varied there really isn’t anything that stood out about voltage or ohms performance as a whole, each performed on an individual basis.
The Spinfuel eLiquid Review Team Remarks
Below are excerpts from notes and conversations about the various eLiquids. The Plume Room earned several Spinfuel Choice Awards and that was to be expected since the team members are regular customers of The Plume Room, having added several flavors to their personal collections over the past year or so. In some ways the Choice Awards simply make their remarks ‘official’. Please remember that each person’s impression about a particular eLiquid can differ from your own. That said… vapor production and throat hits are characteristics with less wiggle room then whether or not a flavor was enjoyed by one team member or another. It is also noted, where possible, when The Plume Room accurately describes a flavor.
Black Cherry Cream Soda – A Spinfuel Choice Award Winner –
“TPR’s version of Black Cherry Cream Soda has a slightly tart inhale and mildly creamy finish with bursts of sweet, black cherry flavor. Hand-crafted in small batches, Black Cherry Cream Soda is a true gourmet eLiquid — rich, sweet and delicious. – The Plume Room
Tom: This new flavor is absolutely amazing! Black Cherry Cream Soda was the first one I started vaping when the review began, and I stayed with it until I had vaped every drop. I couldn’t get enough of it.
The true flavor of both Black Cherry and Cream Soda was there in abundance. If you’ve ever ordered this flavor from Sonic or other restaurant the flavor will be instantly familiar to you. I found vaping with 2.5-3.0ohm with higher voltages, 4.4-4.7v produced the best flavor and vapor using a DCSmok carto-tank, equipped with a single coil SMOK cartomizer.
Julia: A delicious black cherry and cream soda flavor that really is out of this world. Very accurate flavors, good vapor production and an excellent throat hit. Best performance for me was with my ZMAX Mini and the iClear 30S. I usually shy away from dual-coils, but the new 30s produces a much better experience. Best flavor was had at 3.4v, best throat hit was a little higher, at 3.7v, but it took the flavor down some. Dual coils will burn your juice at a much lower voltage but at least the 30s did it in a smoother fashion. If the sound of black cherry cream soda piques your interest, you’ll love this one. 5 Stars
Jason: What I loved about Black Cherry Cream Soda was the sweet and rich black cherry flavor blending so well with a sweet cream soda. Even though this is a sweet vape it still made for a most-of-the-day vape, much longer than I thought it would be. Black Cherry Cream Soda is also a vapor powerhouse with a very good throat hit as well. Everything seemed to work with this one, a great recipe with some great flavors, Black Cherry Cream Soda is definitely an award winner. 5 Stars
Keira: Black Cherries are by far the dominant flavor in this mix, and it makes for a terrifically sweet vape. Backed with a real cream soda flavor, the combination is just so delicious. Lots of vapor and a really good throat hit, Black Cherry Cream Soda is wonderful. Best vape? Using my Ovale eLips-C with a 1.8ohm atomizer at 3.7v – 5 Stars
Banana Mint Milkshake – A Spinfuel Choice Award Winner – “This artisan juice has the mouth-watering qualities of two of our best sellers: the sweet banana of Banana Pudding and the throat hit, coolness & mouth-feel of Creamy Mint. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Caution: Highly addictive! -” – Plume Room
Tom: I remember sitting with Jason on the day we began to vape these Plume Room eLiquids and I saw this one, Banana Mint Milkshake, and said, oh, that one sounds really good. But I really didn’t know why, until I finally vaped some of it. Before reading the description several days later I told Jason that it tasted exactly like Banana Pudding with a touch of mint to it. I enjoyed it, even more than I enjoyed the banana pudding. Turns out I was right; this is their banana pudding and Creamy Mint eLiquids. What an inspiration!
When you take a drag of Banana Mint Milkshake you get this nice minty flavor immediately. Then, on the exhale you get this really powerful banana pudding flavor. Man, it is excellent. Not an every day vape for me, but a terrific after dinner or evening vape. Lots of vapor, a somewhat mild throat hit, Banana Mint Milkshake will bring a smile to your face.
Banana Mint Milkshake can burn easily, it did for me anyway, best vaped with a 2.5-3.0ohm atomizer at 4.1-4.3v. Though I did get excellent results with a 3.0ohm and a Johnson Creek Vea (Rev 3 Cartomizers). 5 Stars
Julia: It’s difficult not to like Banana Mint Milkshake. This is banana pudding with a mint flavor thrown in. I guess if you really didn’t like mint you could make an excuse and say it’s not for you, but otherwise this blend of banana pudding and creamy mint is genius. I never would have thought to mix the two together.
As for how I found my sweet spot for vaping this one, I started out at the same voltage I used with the Banana Pudding, which was a standard 3ohm cartomizer in a Texas Tuff Tank at 4.2v on my ZMAX. That was perfectly fine for this one as well, but the mint gave me a little leeway, I had the choice of making the vapor a little warmer but increasing the voltage to 4.4-4.5v, still got plenty of flavor there as well as an incredible amount of vapor. I suppose it depends on whether you want warm mint flavor or cool mint. Either way it’s still a 5 Star juice!
Jason: While I really enjoyed the banana pudding, though I did not award it 5 stars. This one comes really close because the same banana pudding flavor when mixed with their creamy mint eJuice combines to create an eLiquid that not only tastes great, it’s kind of fun to vape. This one is packed with flavor and puts out plenty of vapor. I totally enjoyed vaping it, and it just may go on my rotation as an after dinner vape. 5 Stars
Keira: Anyone on this team that doesn’t award Banana Mint Milkshake is talking out of their butt. No, seriously though, how can this not be a winner of the Spinfuel Choice Award? All the great flavor of banana pudding with a touch of creamy mint, how do you not love it? Vanilla wafers, vanilla pudding, crème, mint, and bananas… all the ingredients of an excellent sweet vape. I will add this one to my rotation, like now. 5 Stars
Banana Pudding – “A gentle banana beautifully layered with cream, a touch of vanilla & undertones of pie crust. Silky smooth, well rounded & JUST sweet enough! – The Plume Room
Tom: I remember John vaping this and he loved it so much he couldn’t shut up about it for days. He still loves it, and he stills buys it on a regular basis. I like it, it tastes exactly, and I mean exactly, like banana pudding, but the thing is I’m not crazy about banana pudding. Now, if someone would make this without the banana in it, they way I make my special desert of vanilla wafers and vanilla pudding, no bananas, it would probably be the best desert vape in the world. I will say this; if you like banana pudding you have to like this one, they taste the same. Combined with a lot of vapor and a decent throat hit, it becomes a great desert vape. Best vape? Simple 2.5ohm coil head in a clearomizer hitting at 3.7-4.0v – 4.5 Stars
Julia: Haha, yes John does love his banana pudding! I admit, when I visit John somehow I always get at least 1ML of this stuff to vape while I’m there. I don’t know, I see it among the bottles and I reach for it. It does taste exactly like banana pudding, and it produces a ton of vapor with basic vape gear (2.5ohm atty at 3.8v), so I think I like it a lot more than I like to admit. If you like banana pudding and you think you might like a vapor form of it, you have to try it. The Plume Room has it down perfectly. 5 Stars
Jason: I don’t think any Vaper could hate this flavor because banana is so popular in eLiquids and vanilla is right up there with banana. What makes this banana pudding is not the banana and vanilla it’s the uncanny taste of vanilla wafers that does it. You might like it or you might love it, but no one is going to hate it. Me? I like it. Best vaped non-frills, simple 2.2-2.5ohm at 3.7-4.0v – 4 Stars
Keira: I’ve been vaping banana pudding from the Plume Room for months now, and it seems to be a flavor I reach for whenever I want something sweet with banana. We don’t have any at home, but we do get it when we visit Florida, and a friend of ours here in Boston buys it all the time so I have access to it. I like it a lot, and I’m beginning to wonder why we don’t have our own bottle. 4.75 Stars

Candied Cavendish – A Spinfuel Choice Award Winner
The Plume Room extracts Cavendish-cut Virginia tobacco and artfully blends it with a smidgen of the finest fruit essence. You’ll be delighted with the results! Rich, low tones of Cavendish followed by mid and high notes of banana. Steeping further rounds its flavor while developing body that is deep, creamy and full. An excellent vape with rich clouds of vapor.” – The Plume Room
Tom: Candied Cavendish is one of the more famous eLiquids from The Plume Room, with a good reason. I’ve heard people almost swoon (well, you know what I mean, the “Ohhhh, Candied Cavendish!”) when talking about how this wicked tobacco vape has a deliciously sweet flavor profile. I love it too, though not to the point that I would talk about it with wide eyes and a bit of drool.
It is a sweet, mild pipe tobacco profile that makes a perfect all-day tobacco vape, and it deserves all the praise that it gets. But, one warning, the “candied” moniker doesn’t mean it actually tastes like candy. This is a serious flavor, one that Vapers who go for fruity and sweet vapes only should avoid. I love the hell out of it. Best vaped warm; so try it at higher voltages or lower ohms. 5 Stars
Julia: Tom is exactly right about a lot of what he has to say about Candied Cavendish. This one is a serious eLiquid, it’s not a desert vape, it’s not overly sweet, and it’s not a super rich pipe tobacco. It is as perfect as a sweet, rich tobacco juice can be. It’s the only tobacco flavor I would ever vape all day long, on purpose too. Plumes of vapor, though a mild throat hit at lower voltages, and so satisfying that you’ll want to lean back, daydream and forget the world around you. Yes, I already own it and I’ve been vaping it for months. 5 Stars
Jason: I can’t believe I’m reviewing this one because it’s a juice I vape all the time. Hell, I think we all do. How have we not reviewed it before now? Look, this is the tobacco flavor that everyone talks about when they talk about The Plume Room. It used to be their M-Type, now it’s this, and it is awesome. So much vapor, so very satisfying, it’s time to award this one, ya know? Best vaped at higher voltages or lower ohms for the warm vapor, but not mandatory. 5 Stars
Keira: If I enjoy this tobacco eJuice then anyone and everyone will. Naturally Julia turned me on to it, but all I needed was a single clearomizer to want to put this on our “must have in stock list”. A sweet, mild, tobacco vape that you can vape all day and not regret a minute of it. Vapor, throat hit, and flavor…it has it all. 5 Stars
Creamy Chai Latte – A Spinfuel Choice Award Winner – “Robust, yet sweet chai spice in a creamy base. Surprisingly delicious & satisfying. – The Plume Room
Tom: What a difference a year makes! First, let me say right now that Creamy Chai Latte is amazing! The rich flavor of chai is nicely balanced by a terrific creamy taste that hugs your taste buds and won’t let go. (in a good way). I’ve enjoyed many chai eLiquids over these past many months and this one is especially good. Plenty of vapor, a nice throat hit, and real chai flavor make Creamy Chai Latte a definite must-have. Chai and burn hot so I recommend normal voltage levels, 3.7-3.8v – 5 Stars
Julia: I don’t understand how or why I disliked this flavor a year ago. Can taste really change that much? My taste I mean? It must because I love Creamy Chai Latte today. While this juice has that identifiable chai flavor like some of the others I love, this is unique tasting because of a wicked good cream flavor that shares the ‘responsibility’ for flavor. I went through my allotment in one sitting, and I nearly swiped Keira’s when she wasn’t looking. Awesome vapor, ample throat hit, plenty of flavor! Best vaped with 2.5-3.0ohm atty and at 3.7-4.2v – 5 Stars
Jason: Wow, I read over my notes from last year and I can’t believe how we judged this flavor. John and Dave have always loved this Chai taste but I guess we just didn’t have enough time to learn about Chai Tea back then, or we just wasn’t used to something so different from what we were vaping back then. In any case, if you like the various chai eLiquids out there you have to try this one. It will make a great addition to your ‘chai’ collection. I’m ready for more. 5 Stars
Keira: There was nothing wrong with last year’s bottle of Creamy Chai Latte. The problem was that was the first time we vaped a Chai flavor. Now that we know, now that we’ve grown our palates, and now that we’ve vaped several Chai flavors, we get it. This has always been a fantastic juice! And yea, this was before I began reviewing juice but if you’re wondering what ever happened to the remaining juice, I took it, and I loved it. Still do. 5 Stars
Looking over the review from last year I think Lisa got it exactly right:
Lisa: 5 Stars – LOL. The 3 of you have never had any Chai in your lives and you wonder why you can’t taste it, yet it is delicious? You just haven’t spent enough time with Chai is why you are having problems with the flavor.
We didn’t have enough time to taste them all for days, we had 10 flavors to go through over 72 hours, and 24 of them were spent sleeping. Chelsey and I drink Chai all the time, so take it from us; this is a GREAT Chai vape. Seriously though, I think the 3 of you gave The Plume Room the biggest compliment ever; your brain can’t make sense of the flavor because you’ve never had it, but your brain is also telling you its delicious. Go with your brain 😉
Creamy Mint – “A slightly creamy & lightly sweetened mint. – Slightly sweet mint with a touch of cream. Clean flavor with a smooth finish. Fantastic when you’re suffering from flavor overload!” – The Plume Room
Tom: I love it when the vendors get their descriptions exactly right. I know a lot of them like to be poetic or funny or whatever and I can see why, but when they get it right it means that they know they have something special. Creamy Mint truly is a terrific juice for flavor overload. It seems to cut right through the blandness that hours and hours of vaping can cause. Great vapor, excellent throat hit, and a nice minty freshness that is tamed by a smooth creamy flavor. 4.5 Stars
Julia: I know exactly what The Plume Room means about flavor overload. There are times when I vape non-stop all day and all night and even switching out the juice every few hours there comes a time when it all begins to taste the same. Creamy Mint is the flavor I waited to vape after reading the description because if it was true, if it was able to cut through hours and hours of vaping with a creamy mint flavor then I wanted to it add it to my rotation. And… it did. This is a terrific minty vape with a touch of creaminess that will become a favorite of many. That said, it won’t become a steady diet for me, but when I need something to break up my usual routine it will be the go-to flavor. Tasty and warm vapor with a 1.8ohm atty at 3.6v – 4.25 Stars
Jason: Don’t get me wrong, Creamy Mint is a good flavor, better than good actually. But I think it might benefit from further steeping because on a flavor ‘power’ scale from 1 to 10 it delivered about a 5. I like my flavors strong, and while I liked the flavor it wasn’t powerful enough. 3.5 Stars
Keira: Okay, maybe Jason is right, maybe it’s not a strong flavor, not yet anyway, but it is a delicious minty flavor with delicious creamy notes. Plenty of vapor, a good throat hit, and real mint make it a juice that would be very popular with Vapers looking for minty vapes with a good secondary flavor of cream. On the sweet side, Creamy Mint was unexpectedly satisfying. Not sure if I would add it to my rotation, but I might if the need arises for a minty vape with a creamy edge. 4.25 Stars
Lemon Chiffon Pie
“An exquisite, light & creamy vape.
Slightly sweet lemon artfully intertwines with cream and a touch of piecrust throughout the entire experience. Noticeable lemon on exhale. Higher voltage brings out the piecrust, while lower voltage amplifies the lemon. Meant to be a truly layered vape.” – The Plume Room
Tom: I know a lot of Vapers that love Lemon Chiffon Pie from The Plume Room. They are the people that enjoy lemon flavors and they talk about how delicate and subtle this one is. How the ‘chiffon pie’ adds depth to the sweet lemon flavor, things like that. I vaped this one for quite some time and while I did enjoy every minute of it, it’s not a flavor I would vape on a regular basis. Vaped this one with low ohms and normal ohms, high voltage, low voltage, it pretty much performed the same throughout. – 4 Stars
Julia: I could vape Lemon Chiffon Pie forever, and I usually don’t say that about lemon vapes. Perhaps because the lemon doesn’t hit you until its on the way out, I’m not sure, but what I really like about it is the piecrust flavor. I would love to have a blueberry pie made with the same piecrust flavor that’s in Lemon Chiffon Pie. The lemon flavor is a bit sweeter than many lemon flavors I’ve had which could also be a reason why I liked it more than most other lemon vapes. Complex, sweet, and delicious, Lemon Chiffon Pie is for Vapers looking for the right lemon vape, the one with a piecrust note that drives it home. 4.5 Stars
Jason: Trying to find the sweet spot for Lemon Chiffon Pie took a little time for me. The problem was that if there wasn’t enough voltage the flavor didn’t hit well, too much voltage and it killed off the lemon notes. I found Lemon Chiffon Pie to taste the best with a 1.8ohm coil head in a Vision V-Fate Nova (MyVaporStore – $12.89). Setting my iTaste VTR at 3.6v (really) produced a slightly warm, full flavored lemon chiffon pie vape that really hit home. I agree that it’s the piecrust that makes it special, and while I’m not crazy over lemon flavors this layered juice was different. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lemon pie vape. 4.75 Stars
Keira: It’s funny how you can think you don’t like a particular flavor, like lemon, and then find an eLiquid that delivers it in a wholly different way and you find yourself in love with it. Lemon Chiffon Pie is one of The Plume Room’s top flavors because they have created something that is both complex and simple. A real chiffon pie flavor with sweet lemon notes. Highly recommend. 4.75 Stars
Peanut Butter Crème Pie – “If you don’t like peanut butter, step away from this eLiquid. Months in the making, this is peanut-buttery bliss wrapped up in a surprisingly decadent vape! Rich clouds of vapor with a sweet & creamy finish. You WON’T be disappointed!” – The Plume Room
Tom: The flavor of peanut butter has been mastered. Peanut Butter Crème Pie is a magnificent flavor, bursting with peanut butter goodness. This nicely layered vape has a delicious peanut butter pie profile. If you want to love a peanut butter eJuice but still haven’t found one, don’t give up until you try this one. Chances are this is the one you’ve been looking for. 5 Stars
Julia: Oh now Tom, come on. There are a few terrific peanut butter eLiquids around today, although I agree with you that Peanut Butter Crème Pie is a delicious one. The Plume Room uses the word decadent and I think that fits. This is not a juice for middle of the day vaping; this is for vaping right after dinner, or in the evening while watching TV. It is to be enjoyed rather than vaped for the nicotine. Really good vapor production and a better than expected throat hit, Peanut Butter Crème Pie is seriously good. 4.75 Stars
Jason: I’m not too sure about this one. Yes, there’s a wicked good peanut butter flavor with a ton of creaminess, but it may be a little to rich for my blood. I mean this is really a rich peanut butter crème pie, the kind of desert that makes me feel fat after I’ve indulged. I know its vapor, non-fattening vapor, LOL, but still, very rich. Awesome… but really rich. Vaped best as warm vapor, so use low ohms with a standard voltage or higher ohms with higher voltage, say 4.5v – 4.8v – 4.5 Stars
Keira: Jason, you’re too funny! How can a rich desert vape make you feel fat?? You are right on one thing; this is a rich, sumptuous peanut butter crème pie vape. Tons of vapor, wicked nice throat hit, and that touch of crème pie flavor makes it so delicious. Vaped with my Ovale eLips-C, 1.8ohm 3.7v – 4.75 Stars
Smooth And Mild Tobacco
“A smooth, mild and lightly sweetened tobacco blend for those who want just a hint of tobacco with a touch of sweetness. – The Plume Room
Tom: Very much an all-day tobacco vape. Ultra smooth and mild, a real tobacco leaf flavor that will be with you the whole day. This is a tremendously successful, no nonsense tobacco flavor. Plenty of vapor production, a solid throat hit, and so satisfying in the way only a tobacco flavored juice can be. Cool or warm vapor, completely up to you. I vaped with my iTaste 134, 11w – 12w – 5 Stars
Julia: The more I vape non-tobacco flavors the more I tend to forget how good they can be. I wouldn’t vape them as often as Tom does, but on occasion they really hit home. ‘Smooth and Mild’ is exactly as it sounds. With a healthy amount of vapor, a good throat hit, and an all-day flavor profile, this is one every ex-smoker should have around for those days when they think they need a cigarette. Warm vapor a plus – 4.75 Stars
Jason: Wow, this one is really close to the real thing! It has a real tobacco flavor, but it mild and smooth, kind of velvety really, and definitely satisfying. I’m not sure if I would add this one to my collection or rotation, but for tobacco lovers who want something mild at times, this is a must have. Great vapor production, especially when you crank the voltage up to get it nice and warm, and a solid throat hit. 5 Stars
Keira: Just not my kind of flavor. Too much like the real thing for me. So, on the one hand it deserves a 5 star rating for being so close and putting out such great vapor and throat hit, but its not something I would vape nearly enough to warrant having it. Do we really want something so close to smoking? 4 Stars

Vanilla Caramel Frappuccino
“A sweet & creamy vape. Notes of rich coffee artfully blended with pillows of vanilla cream and swirls of caramel.” – The Plume Room
Julia: 4 Stars – Vanilla Caramel Frappuccino is absolutely delicious. I remember this one from last year, and I remember thinking that it was strong, almost too strong. Since then I’ve vaped many Frappuccino and cappuccino type eLiquids and when I approached this time I had a different frame of mind. I think I appreciate it more. As a complex juice you can taste the vanilla, the caramel, and the coffee flavors at different points, and on the exhale you get this really nice blending that makes it all so good. I loved it, and it’s going into my rotation. Oh, and it’s a real vapor producer and a strong throat hit. Best vaped warm – 5 Stars
Tom: 5 Stars – Loved it last year, loved this year. Excellent flavors, all expertly mixed to perfection. Sweet, creamy, very rich coffee without the harsh vape you can get with some other strong coffee vapes. They’ve tamed it, yet without losing any of the flavor. Marvelous! Vaped with my iTaste 134 using a V-Fate carto/tank 2.0ohm at 8w – 5 Stars
Jason: My opinion has changed about Vanilla Caramel Frappuccino, and for the better. It must be for the same reason Jules mind changed. Experience. A year later this still has a strong coffee flavor but the vanilla and caramel clamp it down and make it into a smoother vape. Loads of vapor, a strong throat hit, and really hitting home at the higher voltages, Vanilla Caramel Frappuccino is not for every day, but it makes a great after dinner vape. 4.75 Stars
Keira: Strong flavors can be very harsh and not enjoyable at all, or they can be all encompassing without being harsh. Vanilla Caramel Frappuccino is the latter. All three flavors are there in abundance, with coffee being the dominate one, but they all blend so nicely that you really think you’re vaping a good vanilla caramel frappe. Crank the voltage up on this to get a warm vapor and you’re home, and you’re comfortable, and you’re sated. Yea, this is one nice blend. 4.5 Stars
The Wrap Up
It’s true that The Plume Room takes time to process your order, and yes the only mixologist on hand is Andrea, the artist behind these magnificent flavors, so when it takes a week or so to get your order just remember how much goes into each and every bottle. Steady customers don’t mind waiting for their eLiquids because they know exactly what they’re getting and how they are getting it.
We awarded four of the above flavors with the Spinfuel Choice Award, and a few others came really close. The amount of passion Andrea puts into The Plume Room, the discipline that must be adhered to in order to maintain the consistency and quality of each flavor is truly outstanding.
The Plume Room is where it is today because every move they make is carefully considered, each customer is treated as royalty, and the loyalty of their customers is only matched by the loyalty of The Plume Room to their customers.
The Plume Room eLiquids can be purchased on their website, of course, but also on VapeRev.
If you haven’t tried The Plume Room yet then we suggest taking a conservative approach and ordering the flavors we awarded the Choice Award to, and in smaller bottles. But, because more than likely you’re going to love them as much as we do you might want to take into consideration how long it will take to reorder and receive your juice. With flavors like Banana Pudding you might want to take a different approach. There are a few vendors that make a Banana Pudding, and if you’d tried them you like them, well, take the plunge and order a 60ML bottle because the chances that you won’t love their version is slim to none. Same with their Creamy Chai Latte, if you like Chai you’ll love this one.
We understand that taste is subjective, but if you like a flavor we like, then The Plume Room’s version of it is going to be an excellent choice. The time to experiment with other flavors, unknown flavors (to you), is after your first order. Get to know their favor profile, learn how they interpret certain flavors and you’ll have a good handle on what to expect from other flavors.
Make sure to read the new interview with Andrea, aka MadMixtress, to see what The Plume Room’s been up to, and what you might expect soon.
Don’t miss the Spinfuel Interview with Andrea, the owner and eJuice Artist.
