Tasting Notes/What they say: Anti-lag combines a blend of watermelon, blueberries, and strawberries with a dollop of sweet, creamy goodness for your vaping pleasure. Cory Vigil of Denver, Colorado, founder of Boosted, truly lives the “Boosted” lifestyle. As the name of his juice company implies, his main hobby outside of vaping is custom cars, car show, drag racing, and of course, boosting.
After feeling like he perfected a couple flavours, Cory sent out e-liquid samples to a few close friends, and they all gave the same response. “Wow!” After a few free raffles and a few sales, suddenly Cory woke up one morning to 500 friend requests and a Boosted fan page on Facebook. Since then it’s been non-stop e-juice mixing, trying to keep up with the sudden explosion in demand. The vaping experience from Boosted is high quality, good for dripping or tank use. Boosted is the flagship flavour from the creators of Boosted e-liquid & a diacetyl-free liquid.
What Dr B’ says: Well Anti Lag by Boosted has proved to be a divisive little fellow. So much so that Dr B’ has even revised the much touted scoring mechanics here at The Juice Bar. He has introduced a ‘personal taste’ score to the line-up. Self explanatory maybe, but we stress this addition aids in differentiating between the particular nuances of his palette and the overall ‘realisation’ of the E-Juice and production.
…”What’s that you say?…GET on with it?”…that well worn saying “to many cooks spoil the broth” is perhaps a little unfair here but we are nearing that territory. Lets be clear from the outset, Anti Lag is by no means a poor juice. On the contrary, everything about this boy screams premium, from the masculine and ‘beefy’ tyre tread artwork to the intricate fusion of multiple fruit and cream. Therein lies the issue, to Dr B’s palette there is just slightly too much going on in the mix. No single element of the flavour profile really shines through to lift this juice to the next level.
That being said, there are BIG flavours here, from the ripe strawberry to slightly more reserved blueberry and melon. You can almost smell gooseberry as well. This is the effect of culminating the three fruits and plaudits should be paid to Boosted for pulling this off terrifically well. It’s smooth as a criminal also, everyday vaping not a problem then but perhaps with the underlying creamy texture perfect as a unorthodox dessert vape.
Anti Lag in pole position then? Not quite…lagging and misfiring at the back of the grid then? Nah, firmly in the points towards the front, turbo ready.
