    I bought menthol crystals and experimented with them. They dissolve easily in VG or VG/PG mixtures.

    I have been a Newport Menthol smoker for many years and when I switched to vaping, I looked to replicate a similar taste. I ended up adopting "creme de menthe" with a bit of "coolada" for a while.

    I still use this mix, although it is no longer my favorite.

    Good luck in finding a good combination that suits your taste buds.

    You may want to try the Nport concentrated flavor from Ecigexpress. I have not tried it myself but many that have tried it say it is very close to a Newport Cig. Good luck.

    I've been fiddling with this for a while, and I haven't found a "right" combination, but some mixes were very good vapes, at least for me.

    I use menthol crystals. I fill a beaker 3/4th with finely crushed crystals and top off with PG. I place the beaker in a warm-hot water bath and stir until everything dissolves. I then use this mix sparingly in juices. About 1% gives a slight cooling effect, 2% a menthol feel mostly on exhale, 3%+ strong menthol taste, above 5% it gets nasty (throat burn, bitter aftertaste).

    As for menthol-tobacco, my best achievement (I'm new to this so it might be lame) is 2-3% of my menthol mix over a base of 2% VZ virginia, ~1% either TPA Bittersweet or Capella "Snick-Snack" and 1 drop / 10 ml of TA. I vary things a lot between mixes, so this is just an approximate. Basically I'd play with a "super-concentrated" mild tobacco flavor, a pinch of TA and some nutty / cocoa-ish / bitter note... Hope it helps, as tastes are so subjective. I see people use this "Seedman's commercial cigarette", but I never got it yet...

    Another thing I like a lot is menthol + FA peppermint + EM or marshmallow (but that's more like candy-cane than menthol cigarette, lol)

    I was a menthol smoker for more decades than I'd care to reveal. One thing I'm sure of is that there's no vapable concoction that will fool you into believing you're smoking the real thing.

    That said, the closest I've found is this: FSUSA's Menthol Ultra (which doesn't have the peppermint tones a lot of menthols do) spiked with a little bit of this: Real Cig Super Concentrated Flavor | Alcohol Based Flavoring - E Cig : Joye eGo & eGo-T | Boge Leo | Cartomizers | E-Liquid | Electronic Cigarettes | eGo Tank. For a believable menthol, you need Essence of Ashtray—not peppermint.

    Tobacco Absolute (TA if you were not aware) is a great tobacco enchancer. Haven't really tried it as a base but if you come across some you'll prolly need to dilute it in pga. Whenever I add it to my tobac mixes it generally adds a bit of TH and kind-of deepens the earthy, tobacco taste. The two VapingZone flavors mentioned are decent. Real cig doesn't do it for me on it's own but mixed with some virginia flue cured, ta, and menthol... Makes a great vape.
