Hello ! A while back we reviewed some flavors and just hadn’t gotten around for the results. I wanted to put some notes up regarding Liquid Barn ( LB )
Packaging - they come in glass 15 ml bottles with screw on / off lids. The packaging is nice, tidy maybe someone kept a pic to put up.
Shipping was super quick and customer service was excellent in my couple experiences.
The line ! LB has 38 different flavor. Some of these flavors are VGD vegetable glycerin dominant the approximate mix is 85/15
So plug this into ELR and it will remember it’s contents do this on the suggested ratio linked page look to the left it will have 3 radio button pg , vg , other you can choose vg or other that way your mixes will stay on track with overall vg vs pg %s
I want to start off by saying this line in the bakery department is BA ! There are some secret weapons in here that are unbelievably delicious on their own and in a mix.
I was taken aback by the fruits thou I don’t want to discourage anyone by getting them at all that is not my intentions they just were not my favorite in this line is all the bakeries stole my heart !
I won’t go into to much detail on overall %s because ELR has them plugged in and they’re all pretty much spot on so head over there if you have questions on that. Just wanted to give a run down on flavors and the line overall.
Baked Cinnamon Roll - Not super strong on the cinnamon as it smells nice rounded back notes and blender quality. Has acetoin in it so gives that bready bakery feel to it. I smell a syrup then a bit of cinnamon off the bottle.
Baker’s Touch - Fantastic blend of custard danish & creams has a good amount of cinnamon in this one just fyi. This is one of those secret weapons for your bakeries ! If you only get a few I’d be sure to get this!
Banana- Blah not as punch ripe as i’d hoped more of a taffy candy quality that does seem to fade away.
Belgian Waffle- Very good syrup to buttery ratio I only used it as a mixer can’t say what it was like as a stand alone. Found it to be more forgiving than other vendors with the maple syrup not as prevalent easing the mixing quality.
Blue Raspberry- VGD flavor ! Nice and sweet. Taste like it says. However not really strong enough to be a stand alone I can go up to almost 6-7% in a mix.
Butterscotch Graham Tobacco- Don’t be scared off w/ the tobacco label there. This too is a secret weapon the butterscotch is a sweet one then the graham allows for a crust and then the tobacco well it’s in the back ground and not overly abundant adds a nice touch of leaf ! Has a good amount of creaminess to this.
Cappuccino- kind of creamy with coffee inspired flavoring is pretty strong smelling off the bottle and has Acetoin in it. It is dark in color like caramel. This wasn’t one I was too fond of maybe it just came off as too strong.
Cherry Blossom Tea- Very tea forward with cherry blossom in the back ground is a little sweet and tart. I did like this one as a stand alone around 7% but ymmv.
Chocolate Roll- This is straight up tootsie roll hands down full of flavor nice & sweet !
Coconut Milk- Lovely creamy coconut milk is a great blender adds body and a little bit of coconut. Not as milky as I’d hoped but does a nice job.
Cola Freeze- Bubbly carbonated soda ! No freeze in this I don’t think that was a good call on the labeling.
Cream- VGD flavor ! Thick rich cream semi sweet tons of body a great flavor.
Creme Brulee- Sorry this is a strangely off tasting cream maybe it is their caramel idk.
Dew Mountain- Not as citrus forward as I was thinking but kinda sweet kinda lemon limey I’d use it as a mixer but couldn’t get what I wanted out of it as a stand alone.
Fresh Cream- nice clean cream not added flavor works like a charm !
Greek Yogurt- creamy some sourness here but a decent blend of cream to tart sour ratio.
Green Apple- Not one of my favorites I’m not a big green apple fan and this one did not sway me. Kinda plastic waxy weird. I may not be the best to review it. Has pretty high ratings on ELR.
Honeydew- Light on taste very mild you’ll need to use more of it to get it to taste like honeydew.
Lava Cake-Rich thick chocolate cake is very potent and can easily take over a batch at 2-3% some serious chocolate cake here it is delicious !
Menthol- taste pretty clean and minty I am not a huge menthol fan but taste pretty straight forward to me.
Orange Banana- VGD flavor. I didn’t care for this one kinda weird plastic with some notes of citrus and more weird taffy banana. Clouds mixes.
Pacific Cooler- VGD flavor. I have no idea what this is in here. Intriguing blend of berries with SB notes. LB says it is a drink mix. I tried it at 10% stand alone and still was confused what’s in it.
Peach- Guna be honest I am not a peach person but this one seems strong and not as sweet as a juicy peach.
Pineapple- An artificial tasting pineapple tasted waxy to me and clouds a mix.
Pink Lemonade- Delicious beautiful pink lemonade fantastic flavor and strong… blends well !
Rainbow Sherbert- VGD Flavor. kinda strangely creamy with some raspberries but not enough and some citrus notes just not strong enough for any one profile to stand out. Not one of my favorites.
Rootbeer- VGD Flavor . Yep that’s rootbeer barrel.
Snickerdoodle- It says cinnamon sugar cookie but I get a heavy cream and cinnamon swirl going on here. It has Acetoin & AP in it.
Sour- It’s not as puckery as you’d think however I use it all the time to help VG flavors pop works like a charm.
Strawberry- Here is one of the few SBs that I have decided taste like a waxy crayon and just does not come off as SB. I mixed it in a varying of %s with no luck.
Strawberry Cheesecake- Again oddball weird cream with a waxy SB not for me. I was bummed I was looking forward to this.
sweet pipe- Have no idea what this is a cigar … I am not the person to review this. LOL
Sweetener- didn’t use it pretty sure it’s surculose
Tobacco- light not as potent as I’d thought smells of Anise off the bottle which scared me off for a while but actually it tasted ok. Again not the tobacco person here.
Vanilla cream Tobacco- Another secret weapon it is a wonderful cream with great vanilla hints and a tiny bit of tobacco ! It is a great blender.
Vanilla Ice Cream-Oh my favorite of this bunch be sure to check this one out it is spot of creamy buttery rich ice cream and some good ol fashion vanilla. It’s shake and vape friendly too not weird peppery notes here either.
Vienna Cream-Great flavor is creamy with a tiny touch of cinnamon I really like using this in bakery juices.
I want to add I am not paid by LB they were nice enough to offer me the line back in December to try out. I found their line overall a decent line. The VGD flavors are a real bonus for me as I have pg sensitivity and don’t do well with weaker flavor concentrates that I have to use more of to achieve the profile I want.
This does not make a company bad it just makes them a less attractive option for someone like me. I feel in all this line is great but with a middle of the road % usage for each flavoring you can expect to use 2-4% more than on average. Again, not badmouthing just stating my experiences.
