    Putting the menthol in my Protank II made a great juice even better. My sample size bottle went way too fast. Gotta order more.

    Currently vaping Menilla Joe. Excellent juice IMO. Needs more menthol, but the ratio is very good for when I want a warmer and more flavorful vape. It's more like vanilla ice cream that say vanilla bean. It's very smooth and warm tasting. Won't be my all day vape, but it'll most likely be an everyday vape for me. I'd add more menthol to it, but I think I'll ruin it. I think it'll take a lot of trial and error. Maybe one of these days when I'm bored.

    I always read these menthol threads with interest. I don't like any menthol in my mint flavors. The latest was a Hangsen (I think) flavor called 'Strong Mint'. 100% menthol. Fortunately I know a menthol fan, and he says it's a great menthol flavor.

    And here I was thinking I was talking to myself. No problem at all.

    The straight menthol is a very cold tasting vape; kind of like a strong spearmint gum, but it doesn't have any spearmint flavor to it. It also has that effect where if you drink water right after vaping it, the water seems so much colder. Cherry Ice has that effect, but to a lesser extent.

    By contrast, Menilla Joe is very warm tasting. There's more vanilla than menthol (I'm vaping at full menthol too), but I'm ok with it.

    All three juices have been very clean tasting and top notch in quality. Halo gets a ton of compliments for its quality in this regard (even by people who don't like their flavors); all of Mr. E's stuff has been Halo's equal thus far.

    My only criticism is that I can't stand their 7 ml (I think) bottles. Way too hard to get juice out of them; I've been taking the dripper top off them and pouring into my tanks. If the bigger bottles are similar, I'll empty them into DIY bottles. That's a very minor criticism IMO.

    I've got Bubble Ice, Raspberry Ice and Grey Matter (non-menthol) left. Any requests as to which one I try next?

    I felt the same way.i have a two year old two teens and a deployed hubby,
    I decided to buy everything and threw it in a tool box. Once i decided to start mixing i was surprised what i got done in 15 mins

Half way through my first tank of it, this is a damn good menthol; clean, not overwhelming, and a great throat hit while being smooth. Not as smooth as Cherry Ice for some reason, but definitely smooth enough.

    This one will be my main vape unless one of the others replaces it. I might add some to Cherry Ice to tone down the cherry, but that'll be fine tuning the Cherry Ice as it's got a good ratio of cherry and menthol.

    Next flavor will also be a game-time decision. Quite possibly Grey Matter.
    Ok think Im ready to take a chance again with the menthol
    going to order the jade and watermelon menthol as well as ry4 menthol

    and of coarse have to try the gray mater no menthol

    Anyone looking for a good watermelon menthol, try this one. It is very strong on both flavors, neither overpowers the other. Very strong overall too, my friend coughed like crazy when she tried it, but I love it:

    Oops - something is wrong with their website right now, so I can't link to it, but the vendor is Moon Mountain Vapors and the e-liquid name is Vapor Trail

    I would say, too, that the watermelon is sweet like a jolly rancher rather than a natural light watermelon.

    So here's a few updates...

    Bubble Ice - Not my thing. It's good, but it's just not for me. Kind of like a Double Bubble or Bazooka Joe with a good bit of menthol and cooling. Seemed like a good combo on paper to me, and I'm sure a lot of people will dig it. It for some reason seemed a bit harsher than the rest.

    Raspberry Ice - An excellent mix of menthol and raspberry. This is the ratio I was hoping for in all the juices - menthol on the draw, and a touch of raspberry on the exhale. The raspberry flavor reminds me Stoli Raspberry.

    Grey Matter - A different animal. A lot of people don't know how to describe it for some reason. It's got several different flavors, and they show up at different times. I predominantly get a graham cracker taste, sometimes toasted/almost burnt graham cracker. It's got some marshmallow-ish flavor too. Then I randomly get a plumb/grape flavor. It's not the heaviest or strongest flavoring overall, but I don't find it light in flavor. There's an add menthol option, but I'm not sure menthol would be good in it. I'll save a tank full and add a few drops, but I just don't see it being a good mix.

    Grey Matter is growing on me, but I'm not sure if I'll miss it too much when it's gone. Only time will tell.

    I ordered 120 ml of Mr. E's Menthol. It's the perfect all day vape for me. I'll most likely order 30 ml of Menilla Joe change things up with. The other stuff is very good, but I don't think it has the staying power to justify 30 ml of it.

    Everyone's tastes are different, so as always, buy a sample sized bottle first.
