I've ordered 5 18mg E-juices from LF
All seem EXTREMELY harsh and do not taste nice at all compared to another brand I tried called LESS e-liquid 18mg from amazon.
Is there any smooth flavours I can get from somewhere or should I try a lower strength?
I've had the same experience with juices. Steeping does help the flavors come out and taste more like the label, however, some juice I have NEVER improves.
I have some 36mg green apple that is tart and tangy, dead on flavor, and then I have some 12mg watermelon that tsates like rented .... I'm still sampling different vendors but I have to say that Ms. T's is BY FAR my most desired vape. Every single flavor I have tried is simply amazing! I'm going to be ordering a lot more in the very near future.
The trick, if you can call it that, is to find a vendor that fits your tastes. Some people are die-hard tobacco vaporites, some people like fruity, sour, salty, etc. Taste is extremely subjective.
Go to the e-juice review thread and read until your eyes bleed. That is where I have found fantastic reviews and outstanding products and vendors.
Try cutting your juices with some VG. That might soften it a bit. Warning, it will dull the flavor as well.
I too have found some juices (when i first started and went with the large sizes) that the harshness out did the flaves. I wont mention any names as there are some here that swear by the vendor but i wont order from them again and that was a year ago.
