Identifying particular flavor in e-juice? | Forum
May 25, 2012
From about 20 e-juices I bought so far I like only one or two and even than I'm still missing something on those.
It's frustrating not knowing what is "that" flavor in e-juice that I like so it's just guesswork when ordering.
Is there some site that would have some kind of descriptions "tastes like" of various flavors used in mixes?
For example I got e-juice that tastes like Chinese soup, a flavor they often in food. I hate it so want to find out what it could be so I can avoid it. Another e-juice got some Virginia hint but I can't put my finger on it. I like it
but don't know what it is so I can order it.
Just a suggestion Vapedaddy but DIY'ing your own juice answers the question I think your asking, it's not that hard to DIY once your all set up and start ordering just the flavorings you end up finding lots of things out when it comes to flavorings and taste in your juice. It doesn't take a brain surgeon either to DIY, there are plenty of recipes out there to help you get started mixing and once your at it for a while you start doing 4-5 flavorings in a mix it gets pretty interesting. You will also always know what's going into your juice and not be vaping anything you don't want to be vaping like some of the not so good additives that sometimes are going into juice mixes that some vendors could be using. If your gonna be a long time vapor you will also save thousands of $$$$$ DIY'ing your own juice's and they will turn out better then what you could ever buy lots of times and you can flavor them all with what ever hits your taste buds just right.and get to know all the different flavorings. RTSvapes.com has some very god Nic,VG & PG and pretty much everything you will need to get started. The Flavors apprentice has a lot of flavorings for a great price, and ecigexpress also has a lot of flavorings and the newer hi concentrate flavoring as well as all the tobacco's. I started DIY'ing back in 2009 and rarely buy a juice these days, just something to consider and it's pretty simple to do once you get going. The ECF has lots of good threads on the DIY forum over there too if ya want to read about it.

I think you're right that if I diy I'll eventually learn what flavors mix up what. I do think tho that making a good juice takes a very long time to get it right. From my mixing tests so far I've learned that even unwashed 10ml syringe can have enough previous flavor remaining that it can affect whole10ml of diy flavor mix. I'm probably talking about 0.1% which can make an overall difference in taste. To me that's pretty crazy and musty take a lot of experience apart from washing tools properly
I can say that I've gone through lots of DIY PG/VG/ and NIC messing around with flavors I was unsure of and as then I have a reject cabinet with all the failures but sure enough if I go back to them a week or two later they all taste different. Some better, and some the same very rarely worse than when I first tried them. Obviously steeping changes the game. Lately I have been just mixing new flavors (I haven't tried) in a very small amount of PG/VG and dripping a few drops in an atty to get familiar with the flavor profile. Of course this isn't foolproof either because some of these flavors are horrible without steeping. As an example Lorann Raspberry is god awful without steeping. It tastes like lipstick to me. A mix I made with it went into the reject cabinet and a couple weeks later sure enough the lipstick flavor was almost gone. I still don't like the Lorann Raspberry personally but it did get a lot better after steep.

E-liquids are also available in different strength levels of nicotine ranging from zero nicotine up to levels as high as approximately 4.8% nicotine, though anything higher than 2.6% is getting increasingly more difficult to find. The nicotine level is expressed in milligrams per milliliter but can be converted to an approximate percentage by placing a decimal between the digits. 24mg strength would be roughly 2.4% nicotine.
