IVG Limited edition Euro Shortfills
Ah the beautiful game! Jumpers for goal posts and all that. Yep, it’s that time again when people like me who know absolutely nothing about football suddenly find themselves full of national pride to support our boys on the field. I usually hate football but during the big tournaments, I become one of those annoying sofa experts shouting things like “my dog can pass better than that” and “surely that was offside”. Of course I have no real idea what “offside” is but do you think a little detail like that is going to stop me? Not a chance. Now I can also get even more supportive of the Euros thanks to IVG’s limited edition Euros range of shortfills. Thankfully, whilst I don’t know much about football, I’m on much safer ground when it comes to e-liquid!
IVG have truly got into the spirit and have rebranded their most popular juices so us vapers can show support of our teams whilst blowing lovely flavour filled clouds! No matter what team you support, you will find a bottle sporting your flag. It is a great concept and really adds a bit of fun to your regular vaping. I have been sent a classic line up with great flavours representing some of the biggest teams. Sadly (or not depending on your point of view) some of the teams have already been knocked out, and some will shortly join them too as we work our way up to the finals.
I already reviewed a selection of IVG shortfills a week or so ago, so I would suggest you check that review out too as the basic info is still the same. These are all 70/30 VG/PG juices. The only difference is the labelling which now shows various football related graphics along with details of a prize draw. So not only do you get some tasty juice, but you can also win stuff – nice! IVG are giving away £4000 worth of prizes, from a luxury getaway for a family of four to gift cards. All you have to do is stick your unique code from the label into the website and cross your fingers!
So we’d better get on with the review because if I ramble any more, the Euros will be all over!
France - Bubblegum
“That amazing bubblegum taste, which will bring your memories back with a refreshing exhale”
We kick things off with France and Bubblegum. This is a typically fruity gummy tasting juice which will be very familiar to anyone who has every picked up a pack of hubbly bubbly. It isn’t the strongest bubblegum flavour but it does very well at replicating the taste you get when you first unwrap a piece and start chewing when the flavour is at it’s most intense. There is also a fresh almost minty taste to it which I wasn’t expecting, but it works really well and adds a nice twist. This is very easy to vape and works well.
Italy – Forest Berries Ice
“A distinguished blend of natural dark blackberries with hints of blackcurrant and red currants brightened up with a sweet burst of red cherries.”
Italy, represented by Forest Berries Ice, definitely packs in the berries although it isn’t easy to separate each type. It is a strong general berry mix though and is rich and smooth which are the two main prerequisites I like when vaping these kinds of flavours. The ice is balanced and freshens the mix up well making it a refreshing summery vape.
Portugal – Frozen Cherries
“Indulge in a combination of freshly handpicked red cherries, splashed with a blast of crushed ice, giving you a sweet and icy burst of flavour.”
Frozen Cherries is one of IVG’s big sellers, and with good reason. It is fresh and fruity and has a lovely, sweet depth of flavour. They have been quite clever with the level of flavour, it is strong enough for the taste to come through clearly but not so much that it becomes chemically or too artificial. I love cherry juices but so many taste like nail varnish remover because mixers don’t know when enough is enough. IVG have managed to avoid that pitfall so that is a big thumbs up for me. I am also not a massive fan of iced juices that give your tongue frostbite, so I was relieved that this is fairly gently chilled. I know some people love that artic blast but it does nothing for me so again, I was very happy with the levels here. All together this makes for a sweet and easy, refreshingly light cherry vape.
Belgium – Summer Blaze
“Sicilian style cool lemonade, infused with mixed summer berries”
Next on our Euro road trip is Belgium, which has been designated to Summer Blaze. This one didn’t really work for me, the lemonade just doesn’t really blend well with the strawberry type flavour and I found they kind of cancelled each other out a bit. The smell when you open the bottle is amazing but somehow it all gets lost when you actually vape it which is a real shame as it really does smell amazing.
England – Riberry Lemonade
“A perfect blend of crushed blackcurrants and wild berries paired with refreshing lemonade, an extremely satisfying taste.”
I really wanted this to be good, it has too much riding on it! In this draw, England has been paired with Riberry Lemonade. Initially I found it to be quite floral which is not something I am usually a fan of, but the more I vaped it, the nicer it got and I can safely say that I have got through more of this and the Forest Berry Ice flavours than any of the other ones. The blackcurrant cuts through the floral notes and gives it more depth and then the mellow lemon brings it all together. This is one I will be proudly vaping whilst willing our boys on!
With the Euros over halfway through, there is still plenty of time to join in with the celebrations and what better way to cheer on the teams by vaping some very tasty e-liquids. IVG have repackaged some of their fan favourites and even if you hate football, you will find plenty to enjoy here.
It these appeal to you, they can be ordered directly from IVG. The shortfills are £12.99 each, and at the moment you can get 2 for £22. They also offer several multipacks which are currently £39.99 for 4 bottle (they are normally £51.96 for the bundles so this is a great saving) if you use the code CELEBRATEIVG.
