As luck would have it, I was fortunate enough to win a giveaway on River Reserve’s Instagram to try a bottle of juice. The thing about River Reserve is that their flavor selection is…to put it lightly…intense. Custards, cheesecakes, blackberry waffle cone…these guys have it all (at least as far as my flavor profile goes…). I decided to go with Drifter X as a safer bet, almost like a measuring stick to determine if anything else would be worth looking into….
“Berries and yogurt are a match made in heaven. We’ve taken the finest blackberries of the harvest and combined it with our exquisitely crafted creamy yogurt.”
Packaging: This unicorn bottle came with a very elegant approach, opting to go without a colorful cartoon character or bold graphics. Instead, a simple River Reserve logo followed by the name, nicotine strength, “Handcrafted E-liquid” and bottle size in a clean, sharp format. The other side of the bottle showcases everything you could possibly need to know in a very simple and direct language.
Flavor: There is a fine line when creating a flavor such as this. The blackberries can potentially overshadow the base flavor rather quickly, creating a one sided bottle of juice. In this case, though, these guys were able to blend everything quite nicely. The blackberries are sweet and tart, and the yogurt pops through just enough to give you that tangy milky texture you would look for in a vape. On a dripper, the flavors are phenomenal and I can only imagine a tank would be able to achieve an even more detailed layer to the product.
Cloud Production: This seems to be a 70/30 blend due to the consistency, but the cloud production makes me question this. Clouds on this are incredibly impressive, and my cotton seemed to enjoy it as well. No heavy gunking or need to rewick too soon, which is always a plus in my book.
Bottle Size: 60ml unicorn
Nicotine Strength: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg
Final Thoughts: So this creamy mixture meets all expectations I had for a creamy and sweet delicious treat. The question, though, is would I consider looking into other products from these guys? I would have to answer with an emphatic “YES!!” Great taste execution with a well developed product that should be tried by new vapers and experienced pros alike.
