Review of Origins - Buck from Gemma Allen Signature Series at Herbal Tides

Herbal Tides where one of my first supporting vendors, and I have always been a big fan of there creative range of eliquids, I had heard rumours that Gemma, Dan's partner in crime was coming out with her own range of eliquids, and was mega excited when I was offered the chance to review her full range.

For those who haven't heard of Herbal Tides, firstly you don't know what you have been missing. 

Herbal Tides have been vaping for over six years and mixing for well over three years, they treat mixing as a science and take great pride in producing what they and many others believe are the best E-liquids available today. They are constantly expanding the range of flavour/mixes. 

All of their flavours are mixed on the day of purchase and sent within a few hours. Each bottle is made individually after they receive the order, which ensures the best, freshest taste possible! 

These ejuices where sent to me free of charge for the purpose of this review.

The Origins series ejuices come packaged in a 10ml soft squeeze needle topped plastic bottle with a black child proof safety cap. Each bottle comes individually labeled, featuring an original Tom Cato pencil drawing of the creature the juice is named after.  Each drawing on its own is a little mini master piece, and adding a little puzzle twist, all the labels seem to inter-connect when lined up in the correct order, a great reason to try them all.

This juice has a really inviting aroma, inline with its description, you definitely get the layer of peanut butter, and a sweet custard, which seem to coming across as the two main aromas, with possibly a hint of Carmel in the back ground.

On vaping Origin Buck
Inhale: as you start to draw the Vapor in, you are instantly greeted by the unmistakable flavour of the peanut butter, slightly salty with just the right amount of peanut bitterness, that as soon as it hits your tongue, is blended and enhanced by the additional layer of creaminess custard, creating an ultra smooth peanut butter sensation. This silky smooth indulgent flavour glides its way up your tongue, towards the back of your throat, releasing more of the custard creaminess as it goes.

Throat hit : at the back of the throat, the creaminess continues and it delivers a really smooth throat hit, with a hint of the sweet caramel infusion to follow.

Exhale: The peanut butter and creamy custard flavour that developed on the inhale seem inseparable on exhale, releasing a ultra smooth peanut butter Vape. This flavour is given a polish by the addition of the developing sweet caramel, that you started to taste just at the back of the throat. It's as if the have taken the peanut butter and custard blend, and mix in a swirl of warm caramel, without stirring it to much, allowing you to taste the different layers of flavours.

Vapor: This 60 PG 40VG blend produces a great amount of Vapor, very satisfying, whilst hold a great level of flavour.

This is the first of the Gemma Allen Signature Series that I have tried, and I must admit I have been very impressed, a great choice of base flavours, and perfectly balanced and blended, there should definitely be more peanut butter and custard Vapes. Well done Gemma. 

Long Live Peanut butter.
