This e-juice flavor is created by Humble Juice Co. It is one of the flavors of the Hustle E-liquid products. Humble Juice is located in Los Angeles, California. They started several years ago and had been continually making waves in the vaping industry. Their brand and image-proposition is built on how neat and chic their packaging is as well as offering amazing flavor variations. Not to mention, everything is practically priced. Humble Juice provides excellent after sales services and huge discounts considering they already offer free shipping. This company is very trustworthy and dependable; I can attest to that.
A bottle of Hustle’s Checkmate costs only $15.99. Wait till you taste the flavor so you can appreciate how good the price is. Checkmate tastes like a premium vape juice with an unbelievably low price.
Packaging and Design
For a little over fifteen bucks, you get a 60 ml sized bottle. It comes with a child-proof cap and a separate cap with a glue-type tip used for refilling. This is available in three nicotine levels; 0 mg, 3 mg, and 6 mg. Usually, I get the 3 mg for creamy types of flavor. The bottle has a clear soft squeeze material so you can see the consistency and shade of the e-liquid. As for Checkmate, it’s a bit watery, and the color has a yellowish tint. The label on the bottle has the collections name, Humble on it. Below it, the flavor is printed in white. On the other side of the label, the warning precautions are found.
Flavor and Taste
This e-liquid is unexpectedly good since I wasn’t too keen on the cream and menthol combo. When I tried it the first time, I was blown away. I never thought the cooling effect mixes so well with the creaminess. It is not too sweet while the menthol does not overpower the other flavors. The menthol is very refined and completes the overall taste of the e-juice. What I enjoy is how all the tastes mix flawlessly. The berry and cream top tones blended well with the menthol undertones. It is heaven in my mouth; it was a gustatory explosion of both good and smooth taste taking over my senses.
My level of comfort with nicotine strength is limited. I generally only get 3 mg. So far, this nicotine strength works well with the Checkmate. I still end up with a smooth throat hit without any dry or burnt hits. The TH has the right intensity just the way I like. The long drag as you inhale becomes very enjoyable.
One thing I like about this e-juice is how good it is to my builds. It does not burn cotton quickly unlike other brands. It does not gunk up my coils easily considering it has a high VG content. While I’m at it, this is a winner when cloud chasing. It can belt out massive dense clouds that stay up. Another good thing to point out is its scent. It is a very aromatic blend. Its odor is so sweet and light. It has notes of berries with cool undertones; it indeed smells very refreshing. For those with a sensitive sense of smell, I recommend to let this breathe for an additional week as you might find the odor a bit strong at first.
When I found out about Checkmate, it was a checkmate between Humble and me. Humble wins and Checkmate for the win! Hands down, this is one of their best flavors. I suggest this for those who are into fruity and cooling flavor profiles. With its interesting choice of a blend and easy on the pocket price, you’ll surely keep playing and end up winning with this e-liquid choice.
