If you are on the hunt for a great budget e-juice, you may want to give Payday by Broke Dick a try. It also boasts of a rare and satisfying taste that is only made by this Florida-based company.
The Payday by Broke Dick, as described from its website, is a candy store concoction infused on each puff with notes of blended bourbon, combined with satisfyingly smooth hints of coconut, caramel, butter scotch, and just a kiss of cappuccino. That sure is a long list of awesome flavors, but we will have to find out if this is really as good as it says.
Reading the description, I was leaning on my fondness for Castle Long and Mast. Yes, they bear some resemblance but Payday is a whole other beast!
Presentation-wise, the product comes in a large clear PET bottle. It has a wider screw top. The label comes in bold yellow with a guy who looks just like the Monopoly man, who is obviously showing he is broke. The left side of the label shows the typical warnings, batch numbers, and expiration date. The other side, on the other hand, details a very brief product description (as in writing “Adult Milkshake” only). It also bears the list of ingredients and a QR code that will take you to Broke Dick’s website.
For the most important part, let’s talk about flavor. I must admit that the flavor came unexpected. I was thrown off by how strong the flavors actually are. I got a strong burn that rather came from the bourbon and a mix between the orange and coconut flavorings. It wasn’t consistent though.
I let the e-liquid steep for more than a day, and the flavor eventually melded nicely. The first minute will bring a stronger bourbon and butterscotch flavor, while the next minute is a mix between the Bananas Foster and cappuccino. With a wide array of flavors included, I have to be honest that I had to play a guessing game to myself. I can’t determine right away the specific notes it gives off on the inhale or exhale.
I especially love the kind of sweetness it produces and how each of the different flavors can actually be tasted. The flavor really does penetrate deep into your palate. So if you are looking for a mixture of different tastes rolled into one, then this is your guy right here.
Meanwhile, cloud production was superb. Cloud lovers will surely love this. It has a vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol ratio of 70VG/30PG. Of note, vegetable glycerin is widely used in most e-juice as a carrier for flavors and nicotine. Propylene glycol, on the other hand, is used as a food additive and can be found in almost every food we eat.
Again, cloud production was pretty solid. And thanks to its balanced ratio, the clouds do not fade right away and is not too thick or thin. It is just the right distribution. Also, it does a good job on enhancing the already impressive flavor profile. Broke Dick sure knows what their customers want. It made sure to make a cheap e-liquid with good quality, the right ratio, and satisfying taste.
In terms of throat hit, Payday e-juice produces just the right balance. It is not overwhelming, still giving off a satisfying taste. You will get the desired hit — mild enough to be tolerable once inhaled.
A 120-ml bottle of Payday by Broke Dick can go as high as $30 on most online shops. But don’t fret much, you can score this five-star rated e-liquid for only $25. Now we all have our own nicotine preference, right? Some want it strong, others just enough, and some who do not like it at all. That being said, Broke Dick sure wants to cater to all its clients’ needs and produces three nicotine level options. The available variations include 0 mg, 3 mg, and 6 mg.
Overall, I was impressed with how the company Broke Dick played all those flavors and ingredients together to produce an affordable yet great e-juice. I was very glad that Payday by Broke Dick turned out to be the bomb. It sure is one of the best deals you can find on the market today – great flavor for a very cheap price.
