As always I am searching for the perfect E-Liquid to add to my rotation and add to my enjoyment of vaping.
I offer for your consideration…
Blueberry Buckle from Bulk E-Juice
This is the second of their new signature series that they have provided to me for review (thank you Misty!) This flavorful liquid is described on their website as:
“A mild to medium fresh sweet blueberry with a hint of cinnamon”
The first thing I noticed when I received the shipment in the mail was the wonderful aroma that came out of the padded shipping envelope. And eventually I was able to breach the protective barrier of bubble wrap to get to the liquid treasure inside. And in this case, I do indeed mean treasure!
I was able to wait almost a week before my willpower just caved in. So I loaded a clean Kanger T-2 with a fresh head that test out at 2.2 ohms and attached that to my Apollo 18650 V-Tube.
While their normal mix is 50/50 with your choice of nicotine level, since each liquid is made to order, mine was 60/40 at 18mg of nicotine. You just have to state your preference and it shall be done.
While they do not modify their flavors (or IMHO) need to with extra flavor options, they are now offering an interesting option for you to modify the flavors themselves by being able to purchase 6ml bottles of either a sucralose liquid sweetener or liquid menthol for $2 each so you can modify their E-Liquids to your own taste. This is the first company I have heard of to offer that option. I like it!

As always, when I am testing a new E-Liquid for the first time, I like to start out at 3.4v and work my way up till the taste starts change for the worse and then walk the volts back down until I find my “sweet spot” for that e-liquid.
The scent coming from the slightly amber color of this E-Liquid was unmistakably of cinnamon with just a hint of blueberry.
At 3.4v I got primarily the cinnamon flavor with a hint of sweetness and blueberry. Cinnamon on the inhale to be sure with the blueberry making its presence known on the exhale. And AMAZING amount of vapor for that PG/VG mix and voltage setting! And a definite amount of throat hit, more than most but I am crediting the cinnamon for that. Pretty much the same up to 4.2v. Just more vapor and throat hit. Beyond 4.2v started tasting more like burnt cinnamon.
And a week passes……
This time I settle in quite happily at 3.9v. The throat hit and vapor production are still impressive. But what a difference the time to steep has made!
The cinnamon while still very much present has “mellowed” and has blended with the blueberry which is much more pronounced. The cinnamon component is much less “harsh” than it was (and as cinnamon is known to be at least to me). and now I am really getting that taste of sweet blueberry on exhale.
This is indeed a E-Liquid worthy of your consideration. I know that I like it. I like it a lot and can’t wait for a little more steeping to see what it becomes with some age added to it.
Just a little background on my review process. I like to exchange a LOT of emails with the people behind the product that I am reviewing to get to know them and their thought processes a bit. And to go the extra mile to produce a review that is worthy of Steve K’s Vaping World.
So I asked Misty, the very nice lady behind all of the flavors and what inspired her to create this flavor.
The answer was simple. It is based on a recipe from her mother’s childhood. And she most graciously gave me a link to her mother’s recipe and here it is in case you want to give it a try and see how close this flavor matches it.
Now a little bit about Bulk E-Juice
They are big advocates of vaping as a healthier alternative to smoking and involved in our vaping community.
They are a family run business that started out making E-Liquids about two years ago and started retailing November 2012 and are based in Kokomo, Indiana
And while they use the best of ingredients in their creations and mix to order, they offer some of the best customer service I have encountered.
Service is quick, product is well packaged (they really like bubble wrap) and you get a USPS tracking number.
Prices are very reasonable for the excellent product you receive.
And of this morning, a total of 136 different flavors to choose from. Visit Bulk E-juice to view the selection.
Signature series of their liquids are $12.99 per 30ml. Other flavors are $7.25 for 30 ml.
Unless you catch a sale when they offer their creations at $5.00 for a 30ml bottle. And they are having a sale right now on their tobacco flavors. Vape them while the have them!
They offer a 5 pack of samples for $8.00 (right now they have 80 flavors available for samples, soon to have all of them available).
The sample sized bottles are marked as 5ml but truth be told they are indeed 6ml samples.
S&H is a $3.00 flat rate and is free for orders over $30.00
Other than samples and 30ml bottles, they offer 4, 8 and 16oz sizes.
Now for the Bulk calculations.
One fluid ounce = 29.5735 Milliliters
Lets just say that an ounce = a 30ml bottle.
These price break downs all include S&H
$40.00 for 4oz or $10.00 per bottle
$70.00 for 8oz or $8.75 per bottle
$100.00 for 16oz or $6.25 per bottle
The rest of the flavors are also available in the same bulk sizes at $6.25 per bottle. Why not pay a visit to Bulk eJuice to see their entire selection.
I hope that this review has given you some insight on a new E-Liquid that just might be something you would enjoy vaping as much as I have as well as about a E-Liquid supplier worthy of your consideration!
Until next time..
Vape Well and Vape Happy!
