    I'd been planning on getting some of this with my next order when their Christmas offer came through, a free 120ml shortfill with all orders over £15.

    I expected this offer to be quite popular and was waiting to read some reviews, but I've seen none so having vaped it for a couple of weeks I'm ready to give an opinion.

    I've no idea what the barrel ageing is supposed to do, but I can't taste anything that could be put down to that. As for tobacco, I can't taste much of it, but I would also not describe Manabush as tobacco juices.

    I'd describe it as a sweet dessert vape with just a hint of tobacco - there are tones of custard, sometimes popcorn, sometimes Golden Nugget cereal.

    In a Kayfun 5, flavour intensity is medium - it doesn't slap you around the face but there is enough there and it's a perfect ADV.

    I loved this from the start and in a marketplace flooded with mediocre juices I would give it 8/10.

    What do you think of it? I'm interested to see what others can taste in it.

    Still waiting to buy, but dont like custard & nut, so any that get a mention are off the list. So it`s off the list and I`ll stick to poundland

    This confused me when this was discussed before. I think @dahut started a thread. So have they aged it in a barrel?

    Presumably, they have, but I didn't detect anything unique or unusual that I could attribute to this. Perhaps I was wrong to expect this and barrel ageing has undetectably improved the flavour.

    Some folk do @dahut

    But what the point of going to the hassle of making the taste of barrel aged tobacco leaves, when @Ment is telling us you can hardly taste it anyway and it tastes like a caramel dessert?

    That would explain it - I've heard that barrel ageing can ruin a liquid in a matter of hours if you're not careful.

    That could just be me lol. Eliquid really is subjective and I've been at odds with the majority many times.
