Just mixed the Honey Cured and it's wonderful right away
This is a terrific flavor. Thanks so much. I made my first ever DIY ejuice last night using this. Dripping it today and it is so good!
I use all VG. I started with 50 mg/ml nic in vg base. Cut that to 12 mg/ml nic with plain VG, for my base. I then mixed 5 mL of that with 5mL of plain VG to make 6 mg nic as my sample run.
I then put 12 drops into 10 mL - shook it and let it sit for several hours. I couldn't resist trying. I dripped a bit - not quite right for me. The flavor wasn't going to be intense enough and it was thicker than I like. I could also tell it was going to be hard on my atty.
So, I distilled some water and thinned the juice to be a similar viscosity as my favorite VG vendors juices seem (about 13 drops). And, I added 3 more drops of HFC. Warmed the bottle a little and Shook it several times over the evening. Tested dripping again this morning - day'um!!! Good stuff!! I can't put it down, it's so good.
My atty handles it better and the flavor is perfect. Light tobacco, sweet but not overpoweringly sweet. I know this messed up my nic level, but I don't care so much about that. I'm trying to go lower on nic anyway. My only wish was that I had made a 30 mL bottle.
So, thank you so much for starting this thread. Now, off to try mixing some of the other flavors I ordered.

Vaping since Feb. 2012, avoiding approx. 30-35 cigs a day. Everything I tried prior to finding e-cigs failed! Write to your Senators and Representatives, the CDC and the FDA. Tell your e-cig story to them and to CASAA too and let our voices be heard!
I just mixed this myself and it is like nothing I have had before, I am a newbie...I do like it a lot but I would say it is kinda like a sweet honey and hay flavor. This is how it tastes without steeping. I like it a lot because it is has an "organic" quality to it, very natural and lightly sweet. I did 10 mg. bottle - 12 drops to a 70/30 base at 16% nic- enjoying the different flavor a bunch.
Just got the HFC, island tobacco and melon.
Mixed them all. 60vg 40pg. 18mg with 12 drops in 10ml
Just did a warm bath on the HFC, setup the tank and it is very good! I think I might go 3% on the next batch because it is a little too light for me. Unless it gets stronger when you steep but I don't know if I can steep because I might use it all by then lol
The honey is strong and it does taste like you just rolled some yummy fresh tobacco.
I am very excited for the island tobacco because it smells amazing right now but I read on the forum to let it steep a week because of the coconut flavor does not work good until a week later. The melon smells good and I will try it this weekend. When smelling the bottles I can't help but to think they could be stronger but I know it is still early. Anyone like it better at 3%?
People use these from 2% all the way up to 5% from what I have heard. I like most at the 2.5 but you are vaping higher VG than me so bumping it up to 3% is probably a good idea. More VG means more flavor needed usually. Glad you like these--they are very good I like that Island Tobacco myself
I think I will add flavor when I get home today.. My next batch I will make either 80pg 20vg or 70pg 30 vg
my carto is not wicking at 60vg 40pg
I heard that you can add water to make this better
Do you know how may drops per 10ml to thin it out so it will wick?

If you are using VZ's bottles and dropping the liquids right into your mix make sure the drops per ml section on the calculator reads 46 drops per ml as opposed to the default setting of 20 drops. These flavors are alcohol base so that in itself should make for a thinner finished product with no water requirement. Cartos are not too happy with VG over 30 percent as I recall. Consider a clearo or vivi tank system for a smoother vape even with higher VG.
Island tobacco.. Just had to try it and it is good but not great. I will let it steep longer.
Melon - pretty disappointed in this flavor. I will let it steep a few weeks
I use 100% VG for my base and thin it with 2 drops of distilled water per mL. To answer your other question, I use 3% or 14-15 drops of flavoring to 10 mL of base. Also, I always put part base in then add the flavor and the distilled water, then fill the rest of my base up to 10 mL.
