Now, I must admit that I’ve had this eliquid for a very long time now. It was originally sent to me by the Vaping Pogonophile after I’d eaten one too many slices of carrot cake and moaned about it on Twitter. What better way to stop myself eating the stuff than vaping the stuff? It’s a long shot, but, hey, it might just work …
Anyway, VP told me about a bottle that he’d received and asked if I wanted to try it for myself. I said yes. Why wouldn’t I say yes? Who *wouldn’t* want carrot cake flavoured eliquid? He sent it to me, I took a bunch of photos of it, tried it a few times, wrote down a whole bunch of notes, couldn’t make up my mind about it, and then forgot about it entirely.
As I was sifting through some boxes of vape crap that I totally forgot about (and really should review soon), I came across this bottle — Château Noir Carrot Cake. I could smell it before I could see it, the sweet scent wafting through the air. The sweetness lured me in and I grabbed it. It was time to finally review this sweet treat, once and for all.
Château Noir Carrot Cake Eliquid Review
I’ll be honest and say that I have NO CLUE where this eliquid originally came from. I Googled it and found a couple of websites, and it seems that Château Noir Labs is a Canadian company. Vape Horizon sells 50 ml bottles of Château Noir Carrot Cake in 0, 3 and 6 mg, $29.99 a pop. I don’t actually know if you can buy it in the UK, which makes this review a little pointless … But, you know, just in case you’re looking for sugar overload of the Canadian kind, I figured my review might come in handy.
*I don’t know the rules of internationally shipping eliquid or other vape paraphernalia, although I’m in the process of looking into it a little more. Does anyone know more about this? Leave your comments in the little space below. All and any advice/info is greatly appreciated!
Wow. This liquid smells so sweet, you can basically TASTE the sugar from the smell. It doesn’t really smell like carrot cake, more like a really sweet cake. One of those cakes that have so much icing and sweet, sugar frosting on them that they make you feel sick for a while afterwards.
I asked Mister best-ecig what he thought it smelled like:
“Yeah, but sweet what?”
“Erm … It’s a bit nothingy if you ask me. Just very sweet.”
The room smelled really nice after vaping with it, but I couldn’t tell you what flavour it was. Even when I was up close and personal with the bottle I still couldn’t make out what the flavour was.
If you thought Château Noir Carrot Cake eliquid smelled sweet, wait until you taste it. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve got a super sweet tooth, but even this one was way out of my league. I’d say it was like 6-sugars-in-your-tea sweet. I’m a 1 sugar kinda gal. I’ve downgraded from 2 sugars.
The sweetness of this juice ruins it as far as I am concerned. I love carrot cake. I really, really love carrot cake, but this wasn’t carrot cake enough for my liking. The sweetness of it overpowers any flavour, making it unbearable to vape with for longer than a tank at a time. You can’t really make out the flavour. It’s a bit cakey, with a truck-load of frosting, but that’s it. That’s all you’re going to get. Aside from the slightest whiff of carrot cake somewhere in the aftertaste, and even then I’m not sure that’s what it was, I don’t think this eliquid tastes much like anything, except for sugar.
After a while, I did kinda think this eliquid started to taste a little bit like soap. A very sweet soap, but soap nevertheless. After a 2 ml tankful, it was way too saccharine-sweet for me to carry on, and the juice clung to the coil too. I put in a couple of flavoured eliquids in the same tank (and same coil) after the Château Noir Carrot Cake ran out and the damn thing still tasted like it. In the end, after three different flavours (strong ones too), I gave up and switched the coil out. There was NO getting rid of that syrupy-sweet taste. Once it’s in, it’s in.
I’ve had this eliquid for so long and used in so many different devices that I can’t even remember what I’ve vaped it in. When I dug it back out to finally finish this Château Noir Carrot Cake eliquid review, I vaped with my Jac Vapour Series-B DNA 75W box + Series-S tank + 0.5-ohm S-Series coil, at about 30-35 watts.
The vapour production was pretty terrific, I’ll give the liquid that. It just says “MAX VG” on the bottle, without a VG/PG ratio. (Annoying.) It’s actually a really smooth eliquid to vape with too, but I just couldn’t get around that sweetness. If they toned down that sugar if only by a little bit, this would have been much more enjoyable. It hasn’t gotten any more carrot cake-tasting as it’s sat. If anything, it just tastes like more sugar.
Château Noir Carrot Cake Eliquid Review – Conclusion
Well, if you’re on the hunt for sugar overload, you’re going to get it from this sweet eliquid. It’s not one that I could vape with for more than one tank at a time, the liquid itself just as syrupy and thick as the taste. I wouldn’t imagine that your coil would last long with this juice too. It’s thick, and not the good kinda thicc.
Would I buy Château Noir Carrot Cake eliquid again? Nope. I’m not even sure that I’d vape with it again. I have a sweet tooth, but even this is far too much for me.
Would I recommend Château Noir Carrot Cake eliquid to you? If you like six-plus sugars in your tea and have a particular fondness for thick, syrupy, overly-sweet eliquids, this one should be right up your street. If you don’t, I don’t think you’re going to like it. I also predict that this juice will ZOOM through coils at a staggering rate.
Big thanks to the Vaping Pogonophile. I understand why he sent the juice to me now … 😝You should check him out. He’s branched out and got himself a vape shop! (And if you’re in the rugby area, go check it out & say hello from me!) Here’s where you’ll find him:
