Scones by Darkstar
An E-liquid review today and something I’ve been wanting to try for a while now, this is Scones by Darkstar. This flavour I have heard talked about for a long time now and see that it’s even been nominated in this years Ecig Click awards. Darkstar Vapour is based in the UK and has a website with all their ranges of flavours, as well as a large vape DIY section including VG, PG and base mix. The website is well worth checking out for some good prices and fast shipping.
Let’s jump into some Scones then and see how this vapes!
Scones by Darkstar comes in a 120ml clear Chubby Gorilla bottle with 100ml of E-liquid. There is 20ml space to add a few Nicotine shots of 18mg to make it a 3mg mix. You can also purchase this flavour in a One-Shot bottle or Bottle Shot® if you prefer adding your VG/PG and getting a bit more for your money.
A Black and coloured label wraps the bottle. Printed on the front is the title around a cartoon graphic of plates of Scones. Over to the left of the label is printed contact info of Darkstar above printed E-liquid warnings. On the right of the label are the printed flavour profile and Darkstar info. On the bottom of the bottle is a label showing the batch number and best-before of the E-liquid.
A very appealing label with all the info you need and is clear what the flavour is.
The flavour is described on the Darkstar website as; Scones are back, and they’re as beautiful as the rolling English countryside. Freshly baked scones, thick clotted cream and a signature blend of strawberry and raspberry jams. Pair with a perfectly brewed cup of tea. On having a whiff from the bottle, you can literally smell every flavour sitting in there and what an amazing scent it is.
Being cream and pastry flavourings in the liquid, this would benefit from a steep if you are adding Nicotine. However long you want to wait is personal preference but with a scent like that, I can’t wait to get this on some coils right away.
Device used: Lost Vape Thelema Quest and Wotofo Profile RDA with 0.4Ω Clapton build.
On vaping, Scones by Darkstar is a great rendition of a traditional scone. I’m pretty sure Jam Scones are more of a British thing so for the international readers, in a nutshell, this is a classic Scone, also known as a cream tea.
The inhale; you are greeted with a blend of Raspberry and Strawberry Jams, with a nice pastry flavour sitting alongside. There is also some creaminess sitting among the fruit. Leading out to the exhale, more of that rich pastry pops in melding the flavours together, again surrounded with some deep creaminess. There is a pleasant lingering after-taste that makes you pick up the mod again for another vape!
I have found the flavours blend together slightly better up at higher wattages but that’s not to say that it isn’t good for a lower MTL vape down at lower power. You just get a different intensity of the flavourings when you play around with the wattage of the vape.
My Score: 8.8/10 – A jammy Scone squished into an E-liquid bottle! I can see why this is popular!
To pick up Scones by Darkstar, head over there via the links at the start of the review. A 0mg 100ml shortfill bottle of this is currently £9.95 which is a steal for a juice as good as this! Thanks for reading!
