Glas Vapor started out creating high-end mech mods. After seeing immense success with their devices, they decided to try their hand at eliquids. Their Basix line of ejuices are described as “everyday essentials” and come in seven different flavor combinations. All of their Basix ejuices are a 70/30 VG/PG mix and are available in either 0mg, 3mg, or 6mg nicotine strengths. The seven flavors are: Sugar Cookie, Blueberry Cake, Strawberry Blast, Fizzy Lemonade, Banana Cream Pie, Butterscotch Reserve and Caribbean Punch; their names alone had my mouth watering.
These eliquids all come in colorful boxes that are labelled with detailed information about the flavor inside. In addition to the ingredients and flavor name, the box is labelled with the profile category, flavor notes, bottle size, nicotine strength and VG/PG mix of the ejuice. The bottle is similarly labelled with the same information. This packaging and labelling adds to the allure of the ejuice by making it look and feel more premium.
How do they taste, though? To find out, I got my hands on all seven of the Basix e-juice to test out. These ejuices were sent to me free of charge, directly from Glas Vapor. In this review I’ll be going over their taste, quality, and flavor profiles so that you can decide for yourself if they’re worth trying out.
Basix E-Juice Review — Unique Combinations & Tasty Flavors
About Glas Vapor
Glas Vapor was founded in Los Angeles, California in 2014 by Sean Glas. It began as a small vaping hardware brand that produced high-end mech mods. Six months later, Glas branched out into the world of e-liquids and received an overwhelmingly positive reaction from their customers. The rest is history — they’ve been making and selling their premium ejuices ever since.
Glas carry two lines of eliquids: the Basix series and the Badge collection. The Badge collection come in crystal bottles that are unlike any other ejuice bottle that I’ve seen and look more like luxury cologne than an ejuice bottle. Their Basix collection, the one that I’m reviewing today, come in your standard 60ml unicorn bottles but they are nonetheless still premium ejuices.
Glas Vapor’s vision is simple yet bold: to be the industry leader with innovative and high quality vaping products while maintaining the highest level of integrity and customer service. Their mission statement is similarly bold and confidence-inspiring: to enhance people’s lives, self-esteem and confidence with their top-quality products while providing a concierge experience.
Fresh from the oven! You’ll taste warm buttery cookie dough, glazed with golden brown sugar caramel and finished with a cinnamon and nutmeg twist. Don’t forget a glass of milk to wash it down!
Sugar Cookie is an amazing cookie flavor, maybe the best one that I’ve tried so far. It’s a buttery cookie with a strong cinnamon taste — the flavor description is absolutely spot on. The inhale brings a warm cookie flavor with a hint of vanilla. The exhale is where you’ll taste the cinnamon coming through. This is definitely in my top three out of all the Basix flavors. It’s not too sweet either; it’s the perfect balance. The cinnamon flavor is what I really like about this flavor and the vanilla accents the whole thing very well. Yum.
Warm, velvety layers of rich vanilla cake, sweet buttercream and fresh blueberries, drizzled in a sweet sugar glaze. Have your cake and vape it too
The blueberry is strong with this one and it’s delicious. This flavor was the winner of the “Best In Show” dessert flavor at the 2017 Vaper Expo UK. Once I vaped it, I could taste why. It’s got just the right mix of vanilla cake, buttercream and fresh blueberries. It’s rich, sweet and makes your mouth water. Straight away on the inhale you taste the blueberries and vanilla cake in an even ratio. The exhale gives more blueberries with a creamy finish. It almost tastes like blueberry pancakes; who doesn’t love those?
Banana Cream Pie
Banana Cream Pie is a custard filled flavor packed with rich and flavorful caramelized banana, pie crust, and vanilla custard. Just as good as the one your nana made and is sure to leave your taste buds satisfied.
Banana Cream Pie tastes just like, well, a banana cream pie! The flavor description on this flavor is as accurate as can be. The banana isn’t too overwhelming but still rich like what you would taste in the actual food. This ejuice has a strong custard flavor and the pie and vanilla are more nuanced but well-rounded. The inhale and exhale are very similar with a consistent banana, pie, vanilla and custard flavor in every puff. This is my least favorite of the Basix line, but the dessert and fruit flavor will surely be appealing if you like banana ejuices.
A classic take on strawberry sour belts with a gummy bear twist that will blow your taste buds away. Sweet and sour, or sour and sweet? Either way, your mouth will be watering for more!
This isn’t just a typical, boring strawberry flavor. Strawberry Blast is a sweet strawberry ejuice with sour gummy bears added to the mix. It’s tart, yet sweet. It’s not sour enough to make you screw your face up but just sour enough to excite your taste buds. The inhale is where most of the tartness is and it’s here that the gummy bears shine through. This candy gummy bear flavor is extremely accurate and it takes this flavor from “just another strawberry ejuice” to “damn, this is a good strawberry ejuice”. The exhale is more sweet than sour and seals the deal nicely on this flavorsome ejuice.
Like the intoxicating vibe of the islands, it’s the perfect blend of succulent peach, mouthwatering pineapple, sweet strawberry, refreshing apples and a hint of apricot. Truly tropical bliss!
Does that flavor description have you curious? It sure did for me. I almost ripped the box apart to get to the bottle. Peach, strawberry, apple and pineapple come together for a truly delectable eliquid that tastes as good as it sounds. Peach and strawberry are the stars of this flavor as they come through the most strongly while apple and pineapple are more subtle in this ejuice. All four flavors kind of mix together at once for a flavorful, fruit punch-like taste. The individual flavors are harder to make out in this ejuice and with each draw I tasted more of a fruit medley than any one flavor. Extremely delicious. Fruit lovers will certainly find this ejuice to be right up their alley.
This Grand Reserve has extraordinary butterscotch and caramel components, blended with a creamy RY4, for the perfect tobacco flavored, multi-layered experience. The hype is real!
When I saw that this ejuice incorporated RY4 tobacco I knew that it was going to be good. Plus Glas have added butterscotch, caramel and a light vanilla. I also taste a bit of honey too if I’m not mistaken. This ejuice is smooth and sweet but will satisfy tobacco vapers like myself all the same. The butterscotch component of this ejuice is at the helm of this flavor and it’s very, very tasty. The RY4 is more of an exhale/aftertaste flavor but it very much completes the entire ejuice. The tobacco is what makes this different from other butterscotch flavors and it’s what makes me like this ejuice so much.
It’s citrus-y, it’s fizzy and it’s icy cold menthol! Delight in this sweet and refreshing sparkling lemonade poured over lemon-lime shaved ice with a cool, carbonated twist.
Wow, this one is minty! Fizzy Lemonade has a strong menthol taste that is ice cold and refreshing but it’s absolutely going to be too much if you’re not a menthol vaper. There’s also a strong lime flavor with hints of lemonade mixed into the exhale. I didn’t really taste the pineapple in this ejuice as the menthol, lime and lemon flavors are very dominant. This flavor is ice cold on the palate — perfect for those hot summer days. It’s not a flavor I could vape on all day but I can certainly appreciate the tasty lemon & lime. Menthol lovers this one is for you.
Verdict — Basix E-Juice Review
After using on these ejuices for a few weeks I’m very pleased with how they vaped. The flavor mixes taste very good and the quality is on-point. I particularly liked Sugar Cookie for its accurate flavor and Strawberry Blast for it’s sweet and sour mix. Blueberry Cake and Caribbean Punch are next on my favorites list with Butterscotch Reserve close behind. Fizzy Lemonade was good but just too strong of a menthol flavor for me to vape all day. Banana Cream Pie was my least favorite of the bunch. In a nutshell, the Basix line are undoubtedly great e-juices and there’s a flavor here for every type of vaper. If one of the flavors sounds like it would appeal to you then I would highly suggest picking it up. You’ll probably love it.
