The theme behind the name of the Phoenix E-Juice

The lore surrounding the Phoenix bird has countless variations. The bird traditionally lives near a cool well which it visits each morning to bathe and sing. It is a stunningly beautiful bird with an entrancing song, captivating enough to make even the Sun stop to listen. If the Phoenix is injured, it can heal itself and enjoy a lifespan of more than 1000 years. For vapers, this resembles a sweet aftertaste that invites them to enjoy it again and again in a never-ending cycle of flavorful bliss.

About Strawberries:

According to The George Mateljan Foundation, there are over 600 varieties of strawberries differing in flavor, size, and texture. Although strawberries are available year-round, strawberries are most flavorful during their peak season which is April through July. Sweet, juicy, and full of nutrients, strawberries by themselves make for a quick and healthy snack for both children and adults, but can also be used in a variety of dishes and baked goods.

About Cyclops Vapor: Hand Crafted to Perfection

While others focus on churning out a variety of flavors to attract the widest audience for the purpose of profit, Cyclops Vapor focuses on the quality of the product itself. That is why Cyclops Vapor limits their flavor offering and why their brand presence is steeped in Greek Mythology.
Cyclops Vapor doesn’t use equipment to mix monster batches of their e-juice, and they don’t outsource the combination of their ingredients. Each flavor is perfected, mixed, and bottled right in Alabama in their warehouse. Cyclops Vapor handles every step of their process to maintain the consistency of their product, right through to shipping.

Review:

I’ve tasted multiple e-juices from Cyclops Vapor, and they were excellent. They were relatively complex, multi-tonal, and had dynamic blends. I was looking forward to seeing what Cyclops Vapor could do with something a bit more straightforward, and Phoenix, fresh Strawberry from fields seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Flavor & Taste:
I grabbed a bottle of Pheonix, a freshly coiled Atomic atty, and a fully charged battery for my Poldiac before settling in on the couch for my first tasting session. Straight out of the gate, there is no doubt that this is a big, bold, in-your-face strawberry. Cyclops Vapor is apparently not one for subtlety, and with flavors this good, I don’t see any reason to be subtle.

The vape practically explodes with a sweet, strawberry flavor that is offset, by a light and creamy tone. There are definite notes of fresh berries in the blend, but overall, the juice sits squarely on the candied side of the spectrum with the sheer intensity of the sweet berry flavor. The creamy element in play is fairly mild, lending only a fuller mouthfeel and a slightly thicker texture to the vape, with very little flavor. This allows the berry to maintain the lead without being overshadowed or dulled by the additional components.

Aroma:

It is a mouthwatering and fresh berry aroma that goes right along with the field pick strawberry flavored taste of each of these fruits. It has the aroma of a freshly cut up bowl of fruit. Overall it’s very pleasant and clean smelling.

Testing:

When vaped in my standard rig, a Kanger/510 dripping atty, the flavors are big, bold, and immensely fruity. In my mech/RBA rig, a Poldiac/Atomic set-up built with dual twisted 28ga Kanthal at .45Ω, Phoenix remains to be a solid vape with no flavor degradation from the more extreme wattage.

I’m quite impressed with how Cyclops Vapor handled this single fruit flavor. They created a more complex profile than what I normally see in single fruit e-liquids. This juice is very pure and has a good volume of flavor.

Overall Assessment:

I’ve gotta say, this one surprised me. I love all Cyclops Vapor E-Juices, but this one really outshined the rest.  All the other smoke juices I’ve tried have an artificial, chemical; factory made type flavor to them. But Cyclops Vapor Phoenix Fresh Crisp Strawberry is a vape liquid that gives you that natural and fruity strawberry taste.

Pros:

Strawberry flavor is noticeable, but not overpowering
Solid product
Robust options for nicotine level
Child-proof cap
Full range of PG/VG ratio

Cons:
