eJuice Review: Banana Smoothie by Silk Road Vapour

eJuice Review: Banana Smoothie by Silk Road Vapour

The first bunch of samples that I reviewed from Silk Road Vapour a while ago were great, I was very impressed with the flavour, quality, and nice consistency of flavour intensity from their line.

They proved themselves a professional outfit, skillful in their mixing as well as providing a top notch customer service with their fast shipping times and dealing with my many questions eloquently.

I’m very pleased to have some more of their range to review for you all, and this time, with some “You-Beaut” brand-spanking new labels!

Today I’ll be reviewing “Banana Smoothie”!

From the website:
Take a trip to the tropics! It all starts with ripe banana’s, full cream milk, a touch of brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon. A fresh velvety taste that rolls off the tongue. Definitely a summertime favourite!

The Review:
Definately not what you’ll expect, this one is a banana with a difference!

“Banana Smoothie” is a smooth mix of real ripe bananas, thick cream, sweet sugar and mildly spicy cinnamon making this banana a little more complex with a little bit of tang.

I’m really liking how this mix comes together. I’d stop short of calling it rich, but it is definately a culmination of various textures and nuances brought together for a bit of a sensory treat.

I get instant banana with a hint of warm cinnamon on the inhale. It’s sweet yet lightly spicy, warm and quite full bodied.

On the exhale the banana remains fairly consistent, whilst the cinnamon takes on a really sweet nature, with a little bit of tang. The tang is quite zesty, and reminds me a little of pineapple. If you told me there was a touch of pineapple in here, I’d believe it! Even though I know it is just the cinnamon playing on my senses.

The smooth milk or cream and brown sugar also make an appearance on the exhale controlling the tang, and providing a little more thickness and body to the mix as well as a sugary sweetness that follows through to the end of the exhale.

As mentioned earlier, this isn’t your typical banana. If you’re keen on a realistic banana with a light cinnamon tang, look no further!

Nice work guys.
