Strawberry Queen

Strawberry Queen from Elite – Review

Time to review a product from one of Pakistan’s oldest vape vendors i.e. Elite. They have been steadily building their library of flavors on offer over the past few months and did not stay immune to the trend of price slashing across the board. Strawberry Queen reflects that despite being available only at Elite. The flavor as far as I can tell is straight up strawberry juice meaning all we should expect is getting a nice sweet taste of strawberries. If that indeed is the case then I should not be getting different notes on all my setups save for change in intensity.

Testing setups

*Strawberry Queen from E-lite – 3 mg*

Two RDAs with a single and dual coils each.

Two RTAs with a single and dual coils each.

All setups use Rayon as I find that gives a cleaner taste with a short break in time.

Coils are everything from standard coils to fancy juggernaut coils.

Lower watts (Below 4v)

For those of you on a: 

RTA/RDA/RDTA = Expect a slightly harsh with sweet and juicy strawberry notes.

Conclusion: Plenty of sweetness to be found on lower watts as well but I did not care much for the slight harshness.


Higher watts (Above 4v)

For those of you on a: 

RTA/RDA/RDTA = Expect the same experience as described in lower watts except the strawberry notes gain more intensity in their sweetness.

Conclusion: Well, I sort of expected this seeing as the flavor is straight up strawberry juice. The only difference you can get in ramping up or lowering the wattages is the change in intensity as there are no extra notes that come out otherwise while the harshness stays the same as well.

Nicotine Ratios

In case some of you are new and dont know what nicotine strength to get just go through the list below and decide. Not every flavor is available in every nicotine strength however and the best way to find out is to ask the vendor. This list will be present in every review from now on regardless of whether or not that flavor comes in the listed strengths. The strengths do not mean MG per bottle but rather MG per ML.

  • None = 0 mg.
  • Very Smooth = 1.5mg (Direct lung vaping/Subohming territory).
  • Soft = 3mg (Direct lung vaping/Subohming territory).
  • Light = 6mg is approx equivalent to smoking 10 light cigarettes a day.
  • Medium = 12mg is where MTL territory starts and this strength is best for a half a pack – a pack a day smokers.
  • Strong = 18mg should be used by people who find 12mg too less or who smoked a pack of hard cigarettes a day.
  • Very Strong = 24mg is not usually available in the market but some local blenders might make a custom strength flavor for you on request. Bear in mind this is a very high level of nicotine and usually 18mg does the trick. In case you are wondering, this is best for chain smokers and/or those that smoke a couple of packs a day of hard cigarettes.

 

Final Thoughts on Strawberry Queen

Throat Hit : The higher the score, the smoother the flavor.

07/10 – Not as smooth as I would have hoped but then again strawberry concentrates carry a bit of harshness.

Flavor Accuracy: A high score here means that the flavor’s taste matches the manufacturer’s claimed flavor description. Basically if it says its mango cream and tastes like mango cream then it gets a 10.

10/10 – “The Queen reigns with force, making sure every season honors strawberries in her kingdom. Vaped as if you are biting into an insanely juicy, California grown, off the vine strawberry. Simply put- an all day vape.” Wow! That is the first time I have seen a flavor description using all-caps. Elite will be glad to know that the flavor stayed true to its description by providing a true strawberry taste that did not stray into candy like territory. Honestly, there isn’t much to say, it claims to be a straight up strawberry juice flavor and that is what you get.

Go for it: If you like fruit flavors, If you like strawberry flavors, If you like sweet flavors.
