High Class Vape Co: Premium E-Juice At An Affordable Price?


High Class Vape Co’s Premium Line (left to right): Guilty Pleasure, Taste of the Orient, and Members Only

Big shout out to Bill of High Class Vape Co for contacting me to do this review. He came across my blog and offered me to do a review on the High Class Vape Co premium line. I had a great time vaping on them and I’ve finally come up with a review for other vapers out there who are looking for an affordable premium e-juice online. I will also include a discount code for all of you out there at the end of this post.

In case you were wondering…

I was offered these juices for free to review, and although I got it for free, this will not affect my opinion on these juices. I know it’s human nature for people to give a favorable opinion on something they got for free to review, but I’m most definitely sure you the reader as well as the people of High Class Vape Co would much more appreciate an honest review of this e-juice from me.

It’s always tricky to do reviews on e-juice because the first thing people want to know is if it tastes good. And like I always say, taste is subjective. What tastes good for me might not taste good for you, and vice versa. I love vaping berry flavors, but I hate banana, yet some people love vaping on banana flavors. It all depends on your preference.

So what I really try to do in these reviews is give a more descriptive outline rather than a opinionated one for the readers to get a better idea of what they are getting in case they decide to purchase.

What I like to do is focus more on relative things like price, nicotine levels, vapor production, and others. At the end of each review, I say whether I liked the juice or not. Just my opinion.

With that being said, let’s talk about the common factors about these High Class Vape Co e-juices and then I’ll go into a more descriptive review of each juice later in this post.

Affordable U.S. made e-juice

This company is based in my home state of California, San Diego to be exact. As for their prices, High Class Vape Co offers good prices for their premium line which they sell at $29.99 for 60 ml, and their 15 ml bottles for only $10, a pretty good deal for premium e-juice (all glass bottles).

They also offer a sample pack of three 15 ml bottles for only $22.99 which you can pick each flavor for. This makes much more sense than buying a 15 ml bottle alone since you’ll be saving a lot more money.

And if that price is still a little too steep for your vape pockets then you can also try out their budget line which is 120 ml of e-juice for only $18! I’ll also be doing a review on their budget line in these upcoming posts.

All of their juices are a 70/30 VG/PG blend and come in 0 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg, and 12 mg levels of nicotine. While we’re on the subject of nicotine, I found the nicotine to be a little harsh when I first vaped it, but got used to it and started enjoying it as I progressed.

And that’s the thing, I usually vape a high VG e-juice 80/20 blend at 3 mg, but I wasn’t getting that much of a satisfying vape so I decided to bump my nicotine level up to 6. The higher PG level on this juice might have caused me to get a more harsher nicotine taste than what I’m normally used to.

But for those of you who love that “kick in the lungs” type of vape, especially for those of you have just got off of smoking, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this juice.

As for the vapor production, it does put out a lot of clouds. I did notice that the vapor clouds weren’t as robust and dense as the clouds you would get off of a higher VG blend of e-juice, which might be a good thing sometimes. There were many times while I was vaping on high VG juice and driving with the windows up when the clouds would get in the way of my vision. So in this situation, yes a higher PG blend would be better.

Now that I’ve got all that out of the way, let’s get into each e-juice and give you my opinion of each one.


Guilty Pleasure – A Crisp, Refreshing Fruity Vape

Guilty Pleasure – pears, honeysuckle, and other subtle fruit notes.

For this review, I used my Conqueror RTA Mini which is a great flavor chasing RTA which I also did a review for in the past. If you love flavor tanks, please check out my review which I linked above.

According to their website, Guilty Pleasure is their best seller. It’s a floral-fruity blend of pears, honeysuckle and other fruit notes. The thing with fruit blends for some e-juices is even though they are a combination of fruits, there’s always that one fruit flavor that stands out among the rest.

With Guilty Pleasure, I didn’t taste that. The blend of pears, honeysuckle and the other fruits were blended together really well that it created this whole new flavor of it’s own. It wasn’t like “Oh, this tastes like pears” or “This tastes like honeysuckle.” I could taste the different fruit hints, but none of them overpowered each other. It really was a true blend of flavors.

Another thing I noticed with GP was the taste was very subtle. It wasn’t a strong, “hit you in the face” type of flavor that we’ve all gotten accustomed to when with premium lines. The taste for me was a bit muted.

All in all I got a crisp, refreshing fruity-floral vape from Guilty Pleasure. It’s a great mix of fruit blends, but I would have preferred a stronger flavor.


Taste of the Orient – Something Different

Taste of the Orient – cucumber, sweet honeysuckle, and juicy green honeydew melon

Let me start off by saying Taste of the Orient is something I’ve never tasted before. It’s flavor description is cucumber, honeysuckle, and honeydew.

I actually love honeydew, both when eating and vaping. However, I didn’t get a strong taste of honeydew. It was actually quite similar to Guilty Pleasure, but had sort of a tangy aftertaste to it which I think was due to the cucumber flavoring. Again, subtle notes blended altogether.

As for the Taste of the Orient, I would say it’s a decent e-juice. It wasn’t bad at all, but it’s not something I wouldn’t have high on my list when it comes to good e-juice.


Members Only – Creamy Tart Vape with a hint of Strawberry

Members Only – strawberry, crumbly sugar cookie, and sweet ice cream

And the final one on the list is Members Only, a combination of ice cream, sugar cookie and strawberry, 3 flavors I really love. Just like the other two previous juices, the notes were a bit subtle but well blended and not overpowering.

Members Only really stood out to me, I really like this flavor. I would have preferred for the strawberry taste to be more pronounced, but all the other notes blend very well with each other. I finished more off of this bottle than the other two to be honest.

Guilty Pleasure may be the best seller on their website, but Members Only is the true winner for me. Based on my personal taste and preference, I would go with this e-juice.


Again I would like to thank Bill for offering me these great e-juices and I had a great time sampling them.

To my readers, I will also be reviewing their budget line which sells for $18 for 120 ml of e-juice real soon, so stay tuned for that.

We’re also fortunate enough to get a discount code which knocks 15% off of your whole purchase. Use the code SAVE on check out to save even more money!

4 Ways To Stop Getting E-Juice In Your Mouth


the_face_i_make_when_i_get_e-juice_in_my_mouth

Imagine this: you just got your favorite e-juice from the store or in the mail which you’ve filled your tank u with. You have a fresh set of coils and cotton that are ready when you are. You might even have a cup of coffee or your favorite drink with you.

Your little heart gets excited as you anticipate the 3-5 second goodness of vaping heaven, then you take a toot.

“Mmm, this is good!” Second toot, “mmm, this is REALLY good!”

All is well in the world. You kick back, relax, and enjoy the flavor on the exhale of your vape. The flavor is great and on-point.

But then you notice something, as you smack your lips, you start tasting the e-juice from your lips all the way down to your tongue, as if you took a swig out of that e-juice bottle you just got.

“Wait, what is this? Eww!”

You quickly run and grab the nearest napkin and wipe off (or spit out, depending on how much juice got into your mouth) the excess liquid from your mouth. What started off as a pleasant vaping experience has now turned into a gross encounter.

And no, you can’t keep vaping like this, something has to be done!

Has this ever happened to you? Even worse, does this constantly happen to you to the point where you just don’t care anymore?

There are simple fixes to this problem ensuring you get your favorite e-juice in vapor form and not getting liquid in your mouth.

E-Juice is supposed to be vaped, not drank

Commonly known as “spit back,” this is when e-juice spurts out of your drip tip and into your mouth whenever you vape.

There are different reasons for this happening. One cause would be not applying enough cotton on your coils. Since there isn’t enough cotton to suck up all the e-juice, your coils get drenched which causes the juice to spurt back out whenever the wires get heated.

Some manufacturers have made spit back guards in their tanks where a mesh is placed between the chimney and drip tip, blocking any liquids from coming back out.

But if your tank doesn’t have a spit back guard, then there a few quick fixes which will have you vaping on your favorite e-liquid, and not drinking it.

4 fixes for spit back

Here are 4 things you can do if you are experiencing e-juice getting into your mouth whenever you vape. The first 2 are for when you are at home  or any place which will allow you to disassemble your tank.

The last 2 are quick fixes you can do if ever you are outdoors and don’t have the time or the tools to take your your tank apart. They should give you a temporary fix, but won’t get rid of the problem completely. You have to refer to the first 2 tips to eliminate spit back from ever getting in the way of your vaping again!


Un-flood your tank – the most common cause for spit back is a flooded tank. A tank gets flooded when you either a.) don’t have the atomizer on properly or b.) you didn’t put enough cotton to absorb all the e-liquid, or c.) a million and one other reasons depending on how your tank is built. What you will need to do is take your tank apart and make sure all the parts are in place properly. Make sure your juice holes are aligned. For replaceable atomizers, make sure the atomizer is in its proper place. A lot of these new tanks use chimneys so a common mistake would be the atomizer being stuck on the base and not in line with the chimney. For rebuildable tanks, see to it that you have enough cotton placed in the coils. When you insert your cotton through your coils, it should fit snug inside the wrapped coils. If it comes in from one end to another very easily that means you don’t have enough cotton. The cotton will shrink once it gets saturated and won’t be any use to you whenever you vape.

Clean out your tank – So let’s say you did everything I said in tip 1, but you are still getting spit back. It’s most likely there is still e-juice trapped in your tank. You need to clean it until your tank is clean as a whistle and allowing e-juice to be in the place where it’s supposed to be. One way I clean out my tank is I wrap it in a napkin and blow into the tank with the air holes open. Do this until all the excess juice comes out through the air holes. Another way is by flicking your tank (wrapped in a napkin) in a sharp, powerful motion using your wrists until all excess juice is removed.

Tighten your air holes – Let’s say you’re in a bar or at work and the setting doesn’t allow you to disassemble your tank. A quick fix would be tightening your air holes. When you close your air holes a little the vacuum of air won’t be so strong which will lessen or eliminate from coming back out.

Lower your wattage – If you didn’t put enough cotton in your build, then lowering your wattage should stop e-juice from spurting out of your tank whenever you vape.


For me, one of the most annoying things that could happen when vaping is getting e-juice in my mouth. I just don’t like it. E-juice is supposed to be vaped.

What’s sad is some people act like it’s nothing, to the point where they actually start enjoying it. No, this is wrong and it shouldn’t be this way whenever you vape.

What it all comes down to is knowing how your tank functions and how to put it together properly. Read the manual carefully or you can refer to videos online which teach people how to do a proper build on a certain tank. You don’t have to keep on vaping like this, all it needs is a little more work.

Hopefully this helps those of you going through this problem and helps you enjoy vaping the way it should be!

Vaping Is More Than Just Swapping One Addiction For Another


I came across this article titled “Is Vaping Just Swapping One Addiction for Another?,” and though I am a firm believer in having your own opinion and that it belongs to you and no one else can change it except you, I was just shaking my head at how the author was demonizing this thing we love that has helped so many people such as myself overcome the reliance on cigarettes.

Why is it always the people who have never smoked the biggest critics of smoking/vaping?

Here is what I don’t understand, I’ve noticed that the biggest critics of vaping and smoking are those who have never picked up a cigarette or never really experienced being “addicted” to cigarettes.

“Don’t judge a man unless you’ve walked a mile in his shoes” is a common saying about passing judgement on someone or something you have never experienced yourself. To me, people who have never been addicted to smoking cigarettes and constantly criticize it are like people who explain how to properly execute a breaststroke without ever having jumped into a swimming pool.

I just don’t get what drives these people to go crazy on criticizing those who choose to smoke or vape other than the fact that they have been conditioned to hate anything smoking related. They are like sheep that are mentally and emotionally trained to go “Baa! Baa! Baa!” once anything smoking or vaping related is brought up whether negative or positive.

Vaping is killing the tobacco industry

The article starts off with some stats showing the popularity of cigarettes in the UK has dropped from 25% to just 18% (good on you UK!) with the author stating some factors that have caused this decrease.

As we all know the public opinion on smoking has changed dramatically over the years as once being something considered cool to do, to now viewing smokers as pariahs to society.

The author also credits the rise in popularity of e-cigarettes to the drop in cigarette consumption. E-cigarettes, in his or her opinion (not sure what this person’s gender is because they used a moniker) is 95% safer than cigarettes just like Methadone is 95% safer than heroin. Ouch!

The author also argues that vaping is simply switching one addiction for another, and that vapers shouldn’t even be considered as “quitters,” even though the council of public health has stated that vaping should be looked at as a legitimate way to quit smoking.

Can’t we all just GET out of our feelings and use our heads for once?

First of all, I think the comparison of e-cigarettes to heroin used by the author was overkill. We all know that the effects of heroin is no where near the effects of an e-cigarette, unless the author was just using this analogy to stir emotions and not use logic which in this case I believe they were.

And isn’t it a good thing that cigarette consumption is down thanks to vaping? So let me get this straight, the author doesn’t like cigarettes, but doesn’t like vaping either. So what else should smokers who want to quit do? Go cold turkey and just live clean lives based off on sheer willpower?

While we’re getting rid of smoking and vaping, we might as well get rid of alcohol, drugs, TV, movies, sporting events, the internet, and go live like monks in a cave somewhere and meditate all day long because these are all addictive activities and the author is so hellbent on dealing with addiction. Why just regulate one? Why not be fair and regulate all? It’s plain stupid!

Smoking is bad, but taking an adult’s right to choose to smoke is even worse

Don’t get me wrong, I am not condoning the use of cigarettes, defending smokers or the tobacco industry for that matter. As an adult, I believe adults have a right to do what they choose to do with their own body. Same goes for drinking, getting a tattoo, etc. It’s called free-will. There are consequences, but I believe that as an adult we also have the responsibility to either fix or face the consequences of our actions.

I believe smoking is bad, and the way I deal with it is I simply don’t smoke. I don’t expose myself to smoking. Sure, I know people who smoke, but it doesn’t affect my relationship with them. I simply don’t buy tobacco products.

But at the same time I don’t go around looking for smokers on the street shaming them for their habits and telling them how each cigarette shaves off 5 minutes of their life and how they will all die of lung cancer.

I don’t like it, but I don’t take an aggressive stance against it either. I don’t call for more legislation against smoking. I don’t shame people who smoke and call them all sorts of different names thinking it will get them off their habit. I know because I was a smoker myself, and I know how hard it is to get off of them even though you truly want to stop smoking. The way I overcame this habit was by vaping.

I think this is a more proper way of dealing with something you don’t like, simply don’t do it!

Smoking and vaping shaming in the name of social justice

It’s the same approach I use for this blog. I don’t bash smokers, I don’t go on here to tell them what horrible people they are, although do I take occasional jabs at Big Tobacco here and there.

My mission is not to convert every smoker into a vaper. I only wish to help those who have an interest in picking up vaping to overcome smoking. You have a question about vaping? Hey! I’ll be more than glad to help based on my own personal experience.

Here’s what I know about vaping

I’m big on vaping because it’s helped me get off cigarettes. It’s helped people I know, hardcore cigarette smokers who smoked at least a pack a day for decades, get off cigarettes. It’s better than any patch, any nicotine gum, or any crazy pill to get off of cigarettes.

I will continue to promote it because I personally know it works! It’s helped me and people I know to live better lives, and I would wish the same for other smokers who are currently struggling with cigarette addiction. I will never force or shame those who smoke to live my lifestyle.

And no, I totally disagree that vaping is simply switching one addiction for another. I can go for days without vaping without any headaches, no mood swings, shakes and what not. But I know I couldn’t do this with cigarettes.

I vape because I choose to and I enjoy it. I love tasting different e-juices, I love trying out different mods and tanks, I love building coils, I love learning new things about vaping and I love blogging about it. It’s evolved into a hobby of mine.

And the great thing about it is it isn’t getting in the way of my physical health. 2017 marks my 4th year as a vaper. My cardio has improved and my appetite is back because I can taste food better now. I simply love vaping!

If you are a smoker who enjoys smoking and just happened to come across this post, hey it’s your life. I don’t know what effect smoking has on you, how much you smoke or how your body takes it. We are all different physically. I just know that it is not my place to judge you on what you do to yourself unless it is affecting me.

It’s your life and your choice

The signs are there, it is your choice to do what you want to do with your own body. But if have any questions about vaping, please let me know and I will do my best help answer your questions. I also have tons of other posts on here which might help you get answers to those questions you have so feel free to check them out!

Sorry if this post is a lot longer than usual but it was just something I had to get off of my chest. It’s me pouring my heart out for all of you! I am sick and tired of others constantly bashing the vaping community because they equate it with smoking or something they don’t like.

I hope my fellow vapers and some of you smokers out there who are on the fence about vaping get something good out of this. I wish nothing but good things for all of you. Thanks again for your time and attention if you made it all the way to the end of this post!
