A blend of blueberries, blackberries, with a mildy tart raspberry thrown in for good measure. If you’re into sweeter fruit mixes, Berry Breeze from Dripmore may be for you!

First Impressions:

Little has changed between the Dripmore who received warning letters from the FDA, and the Dripmore of today. Yet the changes made have all been for the better. The company has added some special labeling on their boxes clarifying the dangers of the nicotine, and the product’s intended purpose (not a food product…). The background graphics may have been toned down one or two notches as well, and the bottles no longer resemble a box of candy you’d expect to enjoy on your next visit to the movie theater. All in all, Dripmore seems to have made an effort to bring a more professional looking product to its users, and hopefully it will stay that way!

Tropic King is a line of fruit inspired e-liquids flavors. If you’re into sweet or desserts, you may want to check out their Candy King line.

Flavor Profile:

An interesting blend of blackberry, blueberry, black currant, and raspberry.

Smell:

Very straightforward, clean berry aroma. Fresh blueberry and blackberry upfront, with a raspberry puree on the backend. The liquid doesn’t smell quite as tart as some of the other triple berry e-juices I’ve tried recently, but does seem to have a fair amount of sugar added to the mix.

My Setup:

The 25mm BTFC RDA loaded with a set of aliens from Saddlehorseblues. Pulsed on the DNA 200 Lavabox from Volcano E-cigs. Wattage range: 50-70. Airflow shutdown 25% for this review.

Flavor:

Front – Blueberry is definitely the most prominent fruit in this berry mix. There seems to be a bit of blackberry and raspberry thrown into the liquid, but a bit more ‘tart’ could’ve went a long way here. There’s a nice chewiness mouthfeel to this juice, but no currant flavor yet.

Middle – A continuation of the same blueberry heavy mix. The blackberries and raspberries do receive a boost in flavor mid way through, and the tartness grows in intensity as well. Still no sign of the currant, but that’s not the worst thing ever. Berry Breeze is definitely sweetened with a hefty portion of white sugar as with many of the Candy King offerings, and 90% of the tartness is covered as a result.

End – The sweetness and natural fruit flavors are cut in half towards the end. This results in a finish that is a bit more watered down, and resembles a mixed fruit juice more than a bowl of triple berries. The tartness is almost nonexistent, and I’d imagine that a bottle of 3mg would have a slight throat hit at best.

Aftertaste – Some lingering from the fruit and sugar mix. Thankfully, it’s not nearly as bad as some of the other dessert flavors in the Candy King line, and clears with a few sips of water.

Cloud Production:

All Tropic King flavors use a standard 70/30 blend. You won’t be able to practice your ‘O blowing’ around the house, but the clean flavor production should make up for the lack of vapor!

Final Thoughts:

If you can find a way to get over Dripmore’s previous little mishap with the FDA, and come to appreciate what they’ve done to address the problem, you’ll actually find both their lines rather appealing.

Honestly, there’s nothing ‘tropical’ about a blend of mixed berries. And there’s definitely better mixed berry flavors on the market. But if a mixed fruit juice liquid sounds like something you’d be interested in, then by all means go for it!

Recommendable? No. Berry Breeze is a clean tasting liquid, but it’s far from anything I’d go out of my way to recommend.

ADV? No. I’m not a fan of berry flavors in the first place, and this one is no exception to the rule.
