Today’s review of VaporFi’s Amaretto Sunrise flavored e-juice is somewhat of a blind test for me. I’m not one to often drink hard beverages. I can’t rightfully compare it to the liquor itself, since I’ve never tried amaretto. Please realize going in that I’m basing the review squarely on a new vaping experience with this flavor.
Vapor Score: 67 Usable
I was left feeling a little disheartened in this flavor’s ability to draw clouds from my pulls in the basic VaporFi Pro pen. Matched to other liquids from the company, this one just really doesn’t push out the needed vapor to feel satisfied that I’m indulging in a great vape. Conceivably, a few added drops of VG could help cloud things up a little more.
Throat Hit: 87 Excellent
Perhaps it’s the stab at creating an alcoholic beverage vaping experience, or perhaps it just really lets the nicotine hit the back of the throat well, but for it’s lack of actual vapor, Amaretto Sunrise certainly feels like you’ve just downed a good shot of alcohol. It’s not too harsh, but it is rather strong. So if you like smooth, full pulls you may want to consider diluting this liquid a bit with some VG drops.
Flavor: 69 Usable
Remember that I’ve never tried an Amaretto before, so if this is something you tend to drink, I highly endorse trying this e-liquid and posting your own review in the comments below. I’d love to see how it lines up with the real thing! However, I have to base my score solely on how pleasant of a taste it was for me. I used a double-shot mix of flavor, and the real evident trait I want to point out based on my experience is that the first couple of uses were really fantastic. Maybe it was because it surprised me with a flavor that I didn’t expect. The bad news is that after using it for a day or two, I quickly grew tired of this flavor and desperately wanted to try something else. Maybe that’s a big pat on the back for how close it may taste to real amaretto, as I surmise it’s not something you could typically sip on all day long for the uninitiated. Amaretto is supposed to be a bit nutty, with a sweet almond-flavored aftertaste. Founded on that depiction alone, I’d say this liquid comes close to meeting the expectation.
Aroma: 55 Passable
Amaretto’s aroma is somewhat deceptive to my senses. It’s a very tart smelling formula that really doesn’t seem to give underlying hints of what it fully tastes like. Furthermore, the aroma isn’t carried very far. Usually flavors that are very well received with a group of friends around, raise their curiosity about what it tastes like. Not once have I had one guest ask what it was I was vaping.
Price: 84 Excellent
VaporFi has increased its prices on 30ml bottles to $15.99 each, hence a slightly lower score in this category then you may have seen in other reviews of Vapor-Fi juices. The bottles are nice, with very narrow tips for careful refilling of your tanks.

Summary/Overall Score: 71.8 Good
VaporFi’s Amaretto Sunrise e-liquid presents a rather cryptic paradigm for me. I do somewhat like the distinctive flavor, which is as advertised with an undertone of almond, yet an alcoholic associated throat hit. Though the flavor is robust, the actual vapor production is just not very pronounced. I’d love to hear comments on the flavor and how close it seems to be with the overall flavor of the beverage, but for this review, an all-day-vape it regrettably, is not.
