Wayne Walker - DIY or DIE
Liquid Barn asked the influencer to share his vape-spertise on everything from flavor profiles, to the Wayne Walker Vapor Collection, and the future of the industry. Buckle up and enjoy.
LB: Describe your style of vaping.
WW: I’m strictly about flavor and getting the most absolute and “reference” flavor from my vape.
LB: Favorite flavor blend?
WW: My all day vape has been Strawberry Milk my entire vaping career, though I’ve been addicted to RY4’s (caramel bakery with light tobacco) over the last year or so. I have flavor ADD.
LB: How has your vaping experience changed over time?
WW: Vaping became a lifestyle once I started getting more heavily into mixing. Now all I want to do is push the boundaries on flavors and vapor to impress my community and peers.
LB: How are the FDA regulations affecting you?
WW: The regulations have taken a lot of the wind out of our sails. The reality is, we need people excited about vaping to keep the fire lit as it ultimately affects business. I got some tricks up my sleeve though.
LB: Do you have any vapers you admire?
WW: I admire the DIY community the most. They are among the most giving and selfless communities out there, and because there’s an inherent level of competitiveness, it makes for a fun community to be apart of.
LB: What do you wish you saw more of in the vaping industry today?
WW: More eliquid companies taking risks and innovating. It seems that everyone is always trying to rip someone off and it's EXTREMELY boring. There’s a reason why DIY has grown exponentially in the last few years, compared to the traditional vapor markets. All the innovation is here (and its 95% cheaper).
LB: Tell us about your blend?
WW: The Wayne Walker Vapor Collection is a refinement of the traditional profiles I love. The flavor “QUIK” is the perfect model of that. Taking a profile like Strawberry Milk, something I’ve been making for years, and refining it. Making it tighter, smoother, more flavorful.
LB: What makes your brand different or distinguished in the marketplace?
WW: It’s a concentrate, meaning you need to mix in your VG/PG/NIC yourself. This makes it just a little more work, but you get TONS more eLiquid for your money. If a normal eLiquid costs you $30 for 30mls, my concentrates will make you 200 - 300ml’s for the same price! No compromise. Same ingredients. Certified ISO lab. Long gone are the days of $1 per ml.
LB: What’s been your inspiration?
WW: My background in fine dining. But ultimately, I just put together stuff that I want to vape myself.
LB: And your philosophy behind creating new juice?
WW: Emulate something already out there, but make it as authentic as possible in vapor form. Refinement is the big word with this new line. All too often, eliquid gets rushed out and tastes half-assed. I’ve been refining some of these profiles for years, and I’m happy to share them with you all.
LB: What eLiquids are you most proud of?
WW: Obsidian from my ENYAWREKLAW collection is probably my best work. But I got some new stuff on the way that I think highlights my entire mixing career put in one bottle.
