Esco Bars Ripe Collection Review


I used to be excited to get the Esco Bars in and much more excited this morning to see the samples sitting on my desk for evaluate. I had all the time heard good issues about Esco Bar vape flavors and was desirous to study firsthand. They arrive in a small cardboard field like toothpaste is available in. The paintings on the field is colourful and complicated.  It jogged my memory of some Seventies hippy artwork or Tommy Bahama designs. They nailed their demographic.

Inside the field is a tube-shaped vape wrapped in a plastic sleeve.  Removing the wrapper left me holding a ¾” thick tube about 4 ½” tall.  It is a sturdy little system with no simply breakable components.  It seems to be wrapped in a skinny sheet of metallic.  When I bang it on my desk and different vapes it doesn’t even scratch.  The mouthpiece is a cylindrical half-inch inflexible plastic nipple.  

The skinny metallic wrapping over the tube provides the system some heft for its dimension.  It feels sturdy and slick in your hand. Each taste is available in a distinct metallic tube.  It is sufficiently small to carry and vape comfortably like a Cigarillo.  Instead of holding a fats vape in my hand like a bit of child taking part in the kazoo, the Esco Bars are skinny sufficient to suit and vape like a cigarillo.  


  • Puffs: 2500
  • MAH (Battery): Integrated 1000mAh battery
  • Coil: Mesh
  • E-Liquid: 6ml.
  • Airflow Control: None
  • Charging: None
  • SALT NIC: 5% (50mg)


The built-in 1000mAh battery is greater than adequate to make use of up all 6mls of 5% vape juice included within the system with out recharging. That’s good as a result of it isn’t rechargeable.  When it’s empty, you recycle it.

The proven fact that it comes with a coil mesh means the place the juice hits the heating aspect; there’s extra floor space to cook dinner extra juice, offering a extra flavorful and highly effective vape.  Pastel cartel was the primary commercially out there vape product to advertise their mesh coils.  Other producers rapidly converted after seeing Escobar’s preliminary success.  

For somebody new to vaping, there’s nothing to get incorrect.  The Esco Bars are all the time on and ready to be vaped.  Any newbie can choose it up, stick the small finish of their mouth, and vape. There is not any airflow adjustment for a extra subtle vaper to accommodate their most popular vaping fashion (MTL (Mouth to Lung) vs. DTL (Device to Lung).  No on/off swap to avoid wasting on battery or retailer extra safely.  No stealth mode, no clicking for various warmth choices.  

As a veteran vaper, I’m okay with a disposable that’s not adjustable, and is straightforward to make use of, even whether it is lacking “options.” If they get all the things proper that I might have wanted the options for then I don’t want the options.  I imply that in the event that they get the juice to battery ratio proper, you shouldn’t ever must recharge a disposable.  In a great world, the juice and battery would run out concurrently.  I feel if a producer needs so as to add extra juice to one-up their competitors as a advertising and marketing ploy, they need to present a battery that may deplete all that juice with out the necessity for recharging; not put me to work recharging it; I have already got a tool for that.  If the airflow combine is already good, I don’t want a slider to regulate it, If it shuts off robotically when I’m not utilizing it, it doesn’t NEED an on/ off swap, and so forth. 

If I’m smoking a disposable, it must be simple to make use of. Pastel Cartel obtained all the things fairly damn-near good on this respect. The taste is great, and the draw is in a variety I discover acceptable for the best way I vape. 

So, I discover I seize the Esco Bars simply as usually (or extra usually) as any of my different (extra programmable) disposables from my desk once I desire a puff, so it should not trouble me that a lot.  I choose it up, I hit it if it tastes good “as is,” then I vape it.  These Esco Bars hit very nicely proper out of the field “as is” so I’m not as inclined to ding them for lacking options different units require that this system didn’t must create an ideal puff.  


Esco Bars Mesh teamed up with RIPE Liquids to supply a line of genuine tasting fruit flavors.  Ripe Vapes is designed with the vape connoisseur in thoughts. Recognized as a premium model of e-liquids, Ripe Vapes has earned nationwide and worldwide recognition by profitable quite a few prestigious awards.  RIPE has a classy presentation, paying homage to wonderful wine. 

When I first began ingesting wine, I needed one thing candy and robust to get my buzz on asap.  As my causes for ingesting and my pallet modified over time, I started to style the variations between assorted manufacturers and flavors.  I began to take my time and recognize the delicate flavors paired with a very good dinner.  These flavors are a extra mature taste choice.  Where different manufacturers might have a melon taste that comes via candy and icy, Ripe Vapes created a honeydew taste that’s genuine and engaging.  They didn’t take the straightforward route and name it melon, they nailed Honeydew melon flavors.  I like Honeydew so kudos for giving me one thing nobody else might. 

Three components to a very good puff.  

  1. The Initial Puff is the place you get your first style and really feel the Nic hit in your physique. You will style no matter is probably the most potent taste initially, then the extra delicate flavors within the combine.  With Ripe flavors, they don’t seem to be insanely flavored with secondary flavors buried behind the strongest taste within the combine.  The preliminary hit is blended and delicate.
  2. The Exhale.  It’s the place you see how a lot ice or what number of delicate intentional or unintentional secondary flavors you’ll be able to style in the course of the exhale.  I appreciated that on the exhale as an alternative of unintentional errant flavors, you get the secondary flavors and a contact of coolness as is suitable for that taste recipe.  
  3. The Aftertaste.  Even a great-tasting juice that leaves a foul aftertaste will get low marks as a result of that’s how I’ll do not forget that taste between puffs.  Some vapes style nice on the preliminary puff and even the exhale, but when it tastes good after puffing you may be impressed to hit it once more quickly.  If it leaves a nasty aftertaste, you’ll subconsciously seize one thing else.  

The title of the flavour listed on the Esco Bars offers a promising thought of what the flavour can be.  Unlike many manufacturers, the Ripe flavors style genuine to the title they provide the flavour.  On the exhale you’ll be able to style no matter iciness they listed within the title.  People that don’t take care of ice have a number of options with out ice. The disposables are clearly labeled with ICE for the flavors with ice.  The taste tastes the identical on the exhale as on the inhale and there aren’t any bizarre errant flavors between puffs.  

The taste choice is extra refined than most different manufacturers.  Across their product line, they go for attention-grabbing and well-thought-out taste profiles and mixes and supply them with the very best energy for taste, not burying taste behind one or two robust flavors.  Their mixes are true mixes from the primary hit to the final.  Next, we’ll examine the flavors of every system.

Blue Razzleberry Pomegranate:  I had been placing this one off to the tip as a result of I often don’t get pleasure from something that begins with Blue and ends with Pomegranate.  Manufacturers add some unknown taste within the combine that jogs my memory of rotten rubbish. I used to be completely happy to style a berry-like taste blended with Pomegranates and Ice, nothing else.  Light sweetness on the exhale, some mild Koolada throat coolness and that’s all.  If that is what this taste was presupposed to style like all alongside, why do another manufacturers get it so incorrect? Esco bars have taken one among my least favourite reminiscences of vaping and confirmed me how these flavors ought to style collectively.  Not dangerous! 

Fiji Melons Ice:  Another nice tasting taste the place I didn’t anticipate one!  The Fiji Melons Ice is honeydew melons.  There is sufficient Koolada to make the melon taste pop a bit as was wanted.  This taste is nice and scrumptious like honeydew melons.  No bizarre exhale or aftertaste. 

There are some good watermelon flavors on the market, however that is the primary genuine honeydew melon taste I’ve come throughout.  Again, with the subtle taste palate utilized by Ripe and their consideration to taste element, they have been capable of pull it off.  Kudos Esco Bars for getting this taste proper!

Kiwi Dragon Berry:  I style kiwi.  Again, with the Pastel cartel elevated taste pallet that wouldn’t accept some run-of-the-mill fruit taste.  They took a tough taste to recreate and nailed it.  I took just a few puffs, closed my eyes, and thought of it, it was candy kiwi blended with berries.  I absolutely anticipated this to be one more failed taste experiment, however I’m beginning to belief that when Pastel Cartel lists a taste, they will nail it.  

I do know I like each Kiwi and berries, I simply couldn’t think about that somebody would ever get it proper. Thank you for proving me incorrect you tasty little Esco Bars!

Peachy Mango Pineapple Ice: Upon opening the bundle you obtain a powerful whiff of pineapple.  I used to be shocked once more by how well-mixed the preliminary puff tasted.  I clearly style equal quantities of peach, pineapple, and mango.  Seems prefer it wouldn’t be that arduous to get the fruit taste combination proper; however so far, this is among the first Peach, Pineapple, and Mango mixtures the place they go the mix proper.  Now I do know there’s a Peachy Mango Pineapple taste by Pastel Cartel that could be a considerate combination of those three flavors. 

It was refreshing, The Peach blended with Pineapple taste comes via first, adopted by the Mango.  They obtained the combo proper.  It is a candy fruity Peach combine vape with a powerful peach taste on the inhale, adopted by Mango and Pineapple.  

Peachy Mango Pineapple: This combine is similar as their Peachy Mango Pineapple Ice with out the ice.  I want the iced model of the Peachy Mango Pineapple taste.  My good friend who can’t do any ice or Koolada (allergic and throat will get puffy) likes this taste.  Without the ice, it’s much less candy, much less flavorful, and offers no icy throat hit on the exhale.  It tastes a bit of “darker” to me if that is sensible.  You nonetheless get the pineapple and a bit of peach, however with out the ice not one of the flavors really “pops.”

Strawnanners Ice: I’m all the time looking out for a decent-tasting banana taste that doesn’t depart a man-made flavoring aftertaste.  Strawnanners Ice exceeded my expectations!  

On the preliminary puff, you style genuine bananas and strawberries with cool ice exhale. There is ice in it, however it’s blended in just below the strawnanna taste the place it belongs.  The Mint flippantly accentuates the flavour profile and provides a contact of ice on the exhale however doesn’t run away with the flavour or introduce any sudden flavors.  This is an effective all-day vape.  A couple of minutes after ending a vape session I style the strawnanna itself, and nothing else.  It’s a very good aftertaste that makes me wish to discover and vape extra Strawnanners Ice.  I purchased two of those yesterday for myself. 

Tropical Rainbow Blast: I actually loved this taste.  Many “Tropical” flavors are simply pineapple/mango with just a few different flavors and a few ice thrown in for good measure.   Most aren’t that good or might have been extra precisely named pineapple or papaya.  I anticipated Esco Bars Tropical Rainbow Blast to be some overwhelming pineapple combine like all of the others.  That was not the case.

There are genuine tasting strawberries, blueberries, and a combination of tropical fruits that don’t overwhelm the flavour profile.  I hold going again for extra and don’t get uninterested in one or two overwhelming tropical flavors.  Instead, I get to consider that tasty puff I simply took and what components I can determine within the recipe.   Whatever the flavors are they’re berry-based, understated, and embody some tropical flavors within the combine, not in entrance of the combo.   

This is one other good all-day vape.


The Esco bars are well-made, great-tasting little vapes.  I really like the flavors and perceive the dearth of options as they have been wanted on this case.  They have superb flavors that might be appreciated by extra discerning vapers.  Some of their flavors like Kiwi and Honeydew are good recreations of hard-to-find flavors.   I might ding the system itself for being such a newb system lacking options and capabilities of each different disposable.  In reality, they’ve engineered out lots of the causes different units want these options to drag off a very good puff.  

I extremely suggest the Esco Bars RIPE assortment for its sturdy little system and its genuine flavors.  I’ve discovered three new favourite disposables so as to add to my combine: Strawnanna Ice, Tropical rainbow Blast, and Kiwi Dragon Berry.
