I have always been partial to strawberry and cream flavors but feel that no one has struck a good balance as of yet. I have reviewed Mech Milk and Strawberries & Cream before and found them lacking in one aspect or the other. Before we begin I would like to point out that Unicorn Milk by Cuttwood has been tested by Vapor Shark for diacetyl and other chemicals; the report they released can be seen below.
What does this mean? Well, clearly the flavor does not have any Diacetyl in it whatsoever but it does contain Acetyl propionyl and Acetoin. My view on the latter two chemicals is very lenient because for 13 years I inhaled Diacetyl in much higher concentrations as a smoker than I would now do as a vaper. I have noticed a ton of health benefits since I started vaping and I vape flavors with diacetyl, AP and acetoin with full awareness that they MIGHT harm me way into the future. Of course, I don’t make it a habit to vape those flavors but if I do get my hands on one then I vape it away. You, on the other hand, are the master of your own life and should do the research I did before coming to your own informed decision. I will leave you with this though, Diacetyl is reportedly worse than the other two and Unicorn Milk does not have diacetyl.
The aroma from the bottle holds lots of promises as I can easily smell strawberry and cream. In fact just performing the smell test made me get in the mood for some strawberry and cream type dessert. The strawberry doesnt smell artificial and candy like thankfully and the cream is doing a great job of enhancing the fullness of the aroma. Smell test over, now to actually vape the flavor.
*Unicorn Milk – ? PG / ? VG – 3 mg*
*RDA with dual coils 0.3 ohm*
*RDTA with dual coils 0.2 ohms*
*RTA with dual coils 0.29 ohms*
*RTA with single Parallel coil 0.3 ohm*
Starting with the single coil the most prominent taste is a cream similar to Bavarian cream but not as strong. Over all I got a very nice mild flavor experience on the single coil with light strawberry notes. I did notice that chain vaping does make the (similar to) bavarian cream stand out more on the single coil. On the Rda I felt strong bavarian cream notes with little to none strawberry and little to no sweetness at all which was disappointing. The performance on the rta was most surprising as it managed to give me a balanced flavor even though I would have preferred more strawberry over the cream.
The single coil had a rough time with this flavor as the Strawberry vanished at higher watts. You can taste different types of cream throughout with maybe some strawberry in the background but nonetheless without a good balance this flavor didn’t perform well. With the Rda the sweetness goes up a notch and some strawberry is felt but ultimately the bavarian type cream ramps up overpowering the other creams. I have never liked bavarian cream because of this overpowering habit of it and it is a major reason of why I did not like the samples of whitemist’s creme de la creme line. I would say the best way to enjoy this flavor is on a dual coil rta as it keeps the balance it showcases in the lower watts test. The strawberry became bolder and mixed nicely with the cream to muscle down the bavarian cream taste.

Final Thoughts on Unicorn Milk
Throat Hit: 8/10 – My vaping experience was not fully smooth as the RDA and RDTA did give me a harsher vape but the single and dual coil RTAs managed to satisfy me with a smoother vape to give this flavor a higher number.
Smell: 9/10 – While the strawberry is not strong enough to be always felt; it still manages to come through with the cream.
Flavor Accuracy: 8/10 – “A perfect blend of enhanced strawberry extract and four unique fresh creams.” This flavor is more cream with a touch of strawberry where I am concerned. I have still not vaped a flavor that I could consider a perfect blend of strawberries and cream. The strawberry here is also lighter as compared to the creams but out of all the strawberry and cream flavors I have tried this one manages to come the closest even beating out whitemist’s unicorn harvest.
Go for it: If you want a dessert flavor, If you love strawberries and cream, If you have a decent dual coil rta, If you want a flavor that is sort of like the Artisan strawberries and cream but more bolder.
Mech Milk was absurdly sweet and some might argue that it wasn’t even a strawberry and cream based flavor. They wouldn’t be wrong as it had no strawberry notes at all but instead just sweet cream all the way. The Artisan strawberry and cream flavor had a more perfumey strawberry that was lighter compared to unicorn milk. This is not a perfect strawberry and cream flavor in my opinion since it skimps out on the strawberry but I stopped from giving it a 7 in the flavor accuracy test because when cuttwood says enhanced strawberry extract it could mean anything from the ‘strawberry notes should be stronger’ to ‘the strawberry is meant to be lighter’. That said, I enjoyed this flavor the most on my dual coil setup and I hope I get to try an even better strawberry and cream flavor one day.
Well, there you have it. If you have any feedback then please leave a comment below.
“I was given this flavor by Vapors Loft for the purposes of this review. Hence, I will do my best to give my most unbiased opinion for Unicorn Milk by Cuttwood which should be taken for what it is i.e. ‘an opinion’ as taste is subjective. As always, read the warning signs on the labels, keep liquids away from children and practice safe vaping.”
