All across this great land, flavors tend to repeat themselves in various fashions. Some are specific to their regions (i.e. New York Style Cheesecake). Yet in our little corner of the country, nobody can do moonshine flavors like the South (especially in the Carolinas). Smoke Crossroads, from Greensboro NC, showcases this in their flavor called “Apple Pie Moonshine”
“Crisp granny smith apple, sweet brown sugar and cinnamon. Enough kick to make the shiners to our west proud”
Packaging: It may be a little hard to find on the website, as the labels reflect their Dripper’s Express label with a train on the front. The relabel I have seen features a slice of pie against a moon background, with a bottle of “SXR” being poured over the item in question. The bottom features the flavor name and just below that, the PG/VG ratio, nic strength, and bottle size. The far left side shows nicotine warning, ingredients, Prop 65, and the right side shows the website.
Flavor: Regardless of what the final label looks like, this does one thing specifically. This slice of apple pie comes strong with both the tart apple flavor and mixes it with a sweeter spice finish. This is everything I remember with a smooth apple pie taste like my grandmother used to make, but with a little something extra. Even at zero nic, this has a slight bit of a throat hit that reminds you this isn’t your basic apple pie flavor. That throat kick reminds you that even adults like flavors, and those flavors need a little bit of an adult touch to them. I can only imagine that higher nicotine strengths provide a stronger throat kick (depending on your preference).
Cloud Production: This 70/30 blend has some pretty remarkable cloud production to boost with this flavor. Cotton stayed pretty clean the entire time as well.
Bottle Size: 15ml, 30ml, 60ml, 120ml
Nicotine Strength: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg
Final Thoughts: This is everything I look for in a solid vape. Great dessert flavor, proper use of spices, and a combination of higher fruit notes with a deeper golden brown base. While I wasn’t expecting that kind of flavor out of a zero nic bottle, I’m impressed with how they didn’t rely on nicotine to create that “moonshine” effect.
