The purpose of this list is to not only remind myself of what Iíve already tried, but to share my flavor profile with you, the reader. If youíve tried the same flavors I have, and you tend to like or dislike the same juice, then itís likely a good assumption that we can make good recommendations of flavors to each other instead of relying on subjective marketing descriptions that we see on ever vendorís website.

This is by no means a complete list of every flavor Iíve purchased or vaped. I will add more to this list as I remember which flavors Iíve tried. Iíve bought so many since I started vaping that without pulling out my receipts, I know Iím missing a bunch from this list.

The following info in my opinion. Your opinion may differ. Thatís cool.

All flavors are vaped on a stock Riva510 lite bundle kit from www.liberty-flights.com


Backwoods Brew
www.backwoodsbrew.net


Blast 6mg A mild cinnamon with a touch of sugary sweet. Great when I first quit smoking to soothe cravings. Iíve outgrown this flavor.
Purchase again? No

555 12mg An overly sweet mystery nut chemical flavored mess. I gave this away.
Purchase again? No.

Applewood Tobacco 12mg Tastes like a granny smith apple, artificial flavorings, and stale tea.
Purchase again? No.

Cafť Mocha 12mg/ 6mg/ 0 mg This was one of the first flavors I could actually enjoy vaping. Nice coffee and mocha flavor. A real life saver when I couldnít find any flavors I liked right after I started vaping.
Purchase again? Yes.

Cappuccino 12mg/ 6mg/ 0mg A nice coffee based flavor. Has a light dash of vanilla. Decent, but I prefer Mocha.
Purchase again? No.

Casablanca 12mg A mystery nut and pepper flavored Ďtobaccoí that tastes nothing like tobacco to me. I can also taste strong artificial sweeteners. A real disappointment.
Purchase again? No.

Cherry Tobacco 12 mg Cough syrup.
Purchase again? No.



Dulce de Leche 0mg An artificial sweetener overload with a side of burnt milk.
Purchase again? No.



Ejokerís Blend 0mg Iím not getting any tobacco from this flavor. Just saccharine like sweetness with a stale bitter tea aftertaste.
Purchase again? No.

Espresso 12mg/ 0mg No one does coffee flavors better than BWB, and this juice is no exception. Great coffee flavor with just the right note of creamy sweetness.
Purchase again? Yes.

Malty 0mg If you have been suffering from fake sweetner overload in your juices and just want a nice mild and nearly flavorless vape, this is for you. I flip back and forth between this and ECOpure as my daily vape.
Purchase again? Yes.

Malty Toffee 6mg As much as I like Malty, I dislike Malty Toffee. Way too heavy of a hand on the sweetener. This is unvapable to me.
Purchase again? No.



Maple Tobacco 12mg This taste like neither maple or tobacco. Itís gross.
Purchase again? No.

RY4 0mg Lots of hype around this flavor. For me, it doesnít live up. Tastes like stale sweet tea.
Purchase again? No.



Vanilla Bean 6mg I liked this one at first, but after some steep time it develops an artificial saccharine like flavor.
Purchase again? No.


Dekang
Sold through various vendors

Coffee 24mg Tastes like floor cleaner.
Purchase again? No.

Cherry Tobacco 24mg Even cough syrup is better than this chemical tasting mess.
Purchase again? No.

Rose 24mg An exact replica of Raid bug killer smell. Pretty awful.
Purchase again? No.

Tobacco 24mg Tastes like cigarette tea, but itís still better than 99% of what US vendors are pumping out and calling Ďtobaccoí.
Purchase again? No.


Freedom Smoke USA
http://freedomsmokeusa.com


Thin Mint 12mg Tastes just like the Girl Scout Cookie of the same name. Turns out, Iíd prefer to eat the cookie than vape it.
Purchase again? No

Wyatt Earp 24mg Very peppery, like a jalapeno. I donít detect any tobacco.
Purchase again? No.


SmokeBot
www.thesmokebot.com

Smokebot doesnít sell their e-liquids, which is a pretty dumb business move, but whatever. I have only tasted Smokebot flavors on their crappy little super mini, which has the smallest prefilled cartomizer Iíve ever seen. Still, their flavors were pretty good.

Jolt Juice 16mg This tasted just like Monster, which is a drink I do not care for. However, as a vape, it was quite good.
Purchase again? If it became available as an e-liquid, yes.

Very Vanilla 16mg This juice sets the standard for all other vanilla juices. Yeah, itís probably a Chinese made juice, but I donít care. This stuff was spot on, perfect in texture, sweetness and flavor.
Purchase again? If I could, Iíd buy 100ml of this stuff in a heartbeat. Itís excellent.

Mocha Mist 16mg Itís coffee flavored, but thereís better out there.
Purchase again? No.


Vaperite
www.Vaperite.com

Organic Coconut 16mg Not a strong coconut flavor and not too sweet. Still, Iíd rather eat this than vape it.
Purchase again? No.

Organic English Toffee 16mg Too artificially sweet, despite the organic ingredients.
Purchase again? No.

Organic Japanese Plum 16mg Cherry cough syrup.
Purchase again? No.

Organic French Vanilla 16mg This didnít impress me. It reminded me of some sort of manufactured chemical baking component. Very processed tasting.
Purchase again? No.

Organic Kona Cream 16mg Very chemically sweet. The coffee is over powered by the nutra sweet like flavor.
Purchase again? No.

Organic Pina Colada 16mg This is okay. Pineapple, coconut and cream shine through. If you like that combo, this could be your thing.
Purchase again? No.

Organic Sweet Cinnamon 12mg I liked this Big Red clone at first, but then the ingredients separated and the top layer very much looked like oil, which you are Not supposed to vape. This was stored in a cool dark place with all of my other juices, and no others have separated like this. Iíd steer clear of this one.
Purchase again? No.

Organic Tobacco 16mg Tastes like stale tea.
Purchase again? No.

VR4 16mg Tastes like stale sweet tea. Still, itís better than any other RY4 Iíve had. Atleast itís not sickly sweet.
Purchase again? No.

Honey Horn Tobacco 16mg Do you like vaping PineSol? Then this is for you.
Purchase again? No.

Tobacco 16mg Tastes like stale tea.
Purchase again? No.

Caramel 16mg Itís ok. Better than any other caramel Iíve tried, but still doesnít taste like the real deal. Has a false sweet note.
Purchase again? No.

Vapor4Life
www.vapor4life.com


Letís just cut to the chase on this companyís juice. They offer about 50 different flavors and the selection /combinations grow from that number based on which PG/VG or Nobacco blend you choose. I purchased 30+ flavors in a desperate attempt to find something I liked when I first started vaping. Every single juice from the Vapor4Life catalogue had an artificially sickeningly sweet and burnt garbage flavor to it. It was truly unvapable stuff to me. I suspect there was a common ingredient at play that my palette thinks is awful, but customer service claimed each juice was uniquely different with no common ingredients across the juices. Now I know better, and of course some of their juices share ingredients. How could they not? Nevertheless, this juice is universally rancid to my tastes, no matter the flavor, no matter the equipment I vaped it on, or time spent steeping. I recently gave the Cognac another shot. LOL, it was so gross. I ended up giving away almost $400 in Vapor4Life product. Lesson learnt, however. If the first couple of juices from a vendor donít hold even the slightest possibility of being likable, itís a waste of time and money to keep trying to make things work. Better to move on to the next vendor.

Want2Vape
www.Want2vape.com

Acid Blondie Cigar 0mg Musty and floral tobacco vape. Unlike most vendors, this tobacco actually tastes like tobacco instead of some sort of tea mix. This isnít for me, but only because of the floral notes.
Purchase again? No.

Alcazar 0mg Sharp maduro cigar flavor. Not my favorite maduro, but itíll do.
Purchase again? Yes.

Milk Chocolate 0mg Tastes like weakly mixed chocolate milk.
Purchase again? No

Vapenstein London 0mg Burning Rubber.
Purchase again? No.

Vapenstein Stockholm 0mg Nice tobacco mix with an anise finish. The anise is slightly too harsh, which makes the finish unpleasant.
Purchase again? No.

Vapenstein Managua 0mg Excellent maduro flavor. This stuff is really good, so of course Want2Vape is taking it out of production. LOL. Get it while you can, folks.
Purchase again? Yes.

    I don't like the tobacco flavors, but decided before i started vaping i wasn't going to try to duplicate smoking. i thought it would help to keep me from going back, plus i don't think i smoked for the tobacco flavor to begin with.

    i did order the sample pack however.

    sahara seems the most realistic. then cowboy. congress is not bad but seems fake.
    Purchase again? No

    vanilla started w/ vanilla 6mg good, but now seems weak and boring, tried the 12 and 18 the 0 was horrible or was just a bad batch.
    Purchase again? No

    cherry, coffee, choclate too weak.
    Purchase again? No

    menthol and peppermint very good, clean, cool,crisp- 0,6,12,18 all seem very similar, with menthol being a little better. I can't detect any tobacco flavoring
    Purchase again? Yes

    V4life

    cool carts smilin special-18 funny taste in background-do not like
    Purchase again? No

    cool carts parlament menthol 18 okay w/ a tobacco flavor never smoked analog parament menthol so can't compare. remember I'm not a big fan of duplicating tobacco flavor
    Purchase again? No

    coolcarts blueberry 11 (sample) okay not terrible. the blueberry flavor is fake tasting, but i like real blueberries a lot, syrup,jelly,pie,brandy-this just doesn't taste real
    Purchase again? No

    used lorann's flavorings

    amaretto- stands out, very good, tasty,sweet, and can be smelled when vaping
    blueberry and cheescake- very good
    amaretto,cheesecake, and a little blueberry surprisingly good
    blueberry natural-just good, wish it was stronger
    banana natural-good

    Thank you for this. I too can't stand this fake sugar aftertaste that many of my juices have. Can you suggest a nice watermelon flavor that doesn't have the nasty tongue coating ickiness to it?

    I have just sampled the entire Johnson Creek collection and several flavors from KickBassVapors. From what I have sampled only 1 of the Johnson Creek flavors (English Toffee) had that saccharine sweet to it. So far, none of the KickBassVapors flavors have had that tell tale artificially sweet taste, but I have not tried their watermelon. Having said that, I would take the risk ordering it from either vendor because they don't seem to use the same sweetening base that many vendors (BWB, Vermillion River, Vaperite, etc...) do.

    As a heads up, I think Johnson Creek has a 'man made' flavor to it. This does not offend my taste buds, but they can tell that orange isn't from Florida, if you know what I mean. So far, the KickBassFlavors seem either benign or even true to the flavor they are trying to replicate.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your insights. Your taste in tobacco seems similar to mine, so /i found these reviews very helpful. Sorry for you obviously sizable investment in so many unfulfilling flavors. May be time to DIY!
