Grand Cru Black Ejuice Review- Now with UPDATE!
"Black" by Grand Cru is described as a flakey strudel pastry layered with a rich blackberry/apple filling and sweet cinnamon sugar. The VG/PG ratio for this is a max 100% VG ratio.
The first flavor that hits you is the strudel. Once you take a hit and exhale, you will taste a subtle cinnamon flavor. It is a nice addition to the ejuice. It isn't too harsh and is just enough and it really pairs well with the strudel. I think it's the perfect amount.
For me, I get the strong strudel, and a light cinnamon flavor on the exhale, but the blackberry/apple was lost in my ejuice.. I didn't taste either one of those flavors in my batch. I'm letting my ejuice steep for a while to see if it draws out the fruit flavor, as I was really excited to try that flavor combo. I will update if I find any changes.
Womp, there it is! After letting it steep for a week and a half, WOW what a difference. The strudel flavor has now subsided and has allowed that sweet blackberry/apple flavor to come out and play! What a world of difference. The flavors pair so well together and you get a sweet/savory hit.
Before, the strudel was so overpowering and it made the juice unpleasant. I threw it in my box and almost wrote it off. Decided to give it another shot today and I had to double check the bottle because it didn't even taste like the same juice.
I now know the importance of steeping your juice. Maybe you have a juice or two in your box that you ended up not liking. I encourage you to give those another shot, you might be as intrigued as me!
You never know how long the ejuice has been sitting in a shop or factory. I know when most of us get juice, we want to use it right away, but try to plan out to where you can let your juice chill in a dark dry place for 3-14 days to be able to taste the juice the way it was intended.
I love the label, and I'm really proud of the picture I took. It's only from a cell phone, but I think the label really pops, especially in the daylight. This is one of the few ejuices that actually have the description on the bottle.
I sampled this juice using my Kangertech Subbox Mini at 25.0W
Grand Cru has four ejuices in their line, Black, Sapphire, Pearl, and Imperial. They sell for $19.99 for a 30ml bottle
