Review of Hades:
The coffee that we like is a personal preference kind of thing. Whether we prefer it dark or light, decaffeinated or not, theres a blend that suits everyone. We can choose the roast, variety, species, brew and grind type to fit our preferences. The complex flavor of a Mocha and Java bean blend makes it and balanced and ideal for an espresso roast vape juice – providing coffee characteristics that shine in a very dark e-liquid roast. Hades, Espresso coffee e-liquid blends made by experienced Cyclops Vapor typically integrate exceptional Robusta coffee beans for the perfect caffeine content and cream flavor. It can enhance the overall e-liquid flavor of the coffee.
When I heard that Cyclops Vapor was gearing up to expand their juice line and begin carrying the coffee collection, I was excited because they have done such an amazing job in the past with their other e-juices that I was certain they would do great with Hades, A coffee flavored e-liquid. When I received the Hades e-liquid for review, I was looking forward to breaking into it to give it the full treatment.
I forced myself to wait until the juice was well steeped, and when the moment finally arrived, I dove right in.
I dripped it into my fresh atomizer, patiently letting it soak for a moment, but deep down inside I knew that a complex coffee blend of purposefully naturally tasting roasted bean flavors was not as simple as one might think.The profile is deep, dark, earthy and rich, with a light, natural sweetness that is a very long way from cloying. The pumpkin presents right on the exhale, with a delicate, subtle blend of the traditional spice. The spice is mild at the top, but gains a bit more traction on the exhale where it’s met with a dark, roasted coffee flavor that, while not perfect, and does still includes some of the artificial tasting roasted coffee flavors that all coffee e-liquids seem to possess to some degree, it does come closer to the flavor of the genuine article than the overwhelming majority of coffee based e-liquids I’ve tasted.
The sweetness enters into play late in the exhale, gaining an even greater foothold towards the finish, but even then, it’s not particularly potent, acting as more of a complimentary flavor to the pumpkin and coffee, lending a light hint of sweetness and a greater sense of body without any candy flavor. The profile is one of a singular, cohesive chord that touches on all the notes presented, but does so in a way that leads to a tightly knit arrangement.
With the roasted bean and coffee all being deeper tones, there are very few top notes in play, aside from some of the spice, so the vape is mostly focused on bottom notes. Pair that with the additional element of a grain-based coffee flavor and the potential for a disastrously jumbled mishmash of a flavor profile is not only possible but probable. Cautiously, I took the very first pull…and there it was, a near perfect replication of the flavors that I am practically expecting for a coffee flavor. But more important than the flavors being correct, is the way in which they present themselves, starting with a basic bean/mocha mix that leads slowly into a subtle nuttiness, and finishes with the dark undertones of the cocoa bean.
All in all, this is easily one of the greatest reproductions I’ve reviewed. The coffee flavors do get a bit temperamental with too much heat putting the sweet spot between 8-8.5 watts or 4.5-4.6v with a 2.5Ω atomizer.
While this doesn’t provide much more than an average throat hit, the vapor production is certainly above average, and the flavor of an Ethiopian Harrar in Hades is positively priceless.
