    Nothing is more subjective than taste.

    I just look for some food/candy/beverage flavors I enjoy and look for similar (but I'll pass on the Blue Cheese juice thank you). Also, and this my not matter to you, I take feed back on what it smells like second hand. If I get a few people saying "i don't like the smell on that one" I usually don't re-order. I don't want to trade one stinky habit for another.

    One other odd thing I found is that a juice I liked two months ago may not be very appealing now. Taste change I guess.

    I've been digging MBV's French Vanilla lately.

    Yes...... we do.

    UNLESS you have a local vape shop that will let you test flavors.

    If you progress enough, you may find yourself in the DIY section ( do it yourself) and you just read what others have made and enjoy and mix it for yourself......saving money and laughing all the way to the bank.

    It's nice to read all the reviews but when it comes down to it, it's a matter of personal taste. It's like people prefer certain restaurants or food products over others.

    One of the things I've been doing now since I've gotten samples from a few vendors is when I spot a poster that likes a particular liquid that I also like, I take note of other liquids he or she may like that I haven't tried when considering ordering something new.
    7 out 7, line away don'ts get paid, last come will get you some, Pay behind!!

    Did someone say craps shoot? At least in craps, if the point is 6 or 8, you have 5 ways to win and only 6 ways to loose. I like those odds.

    Some times buying juice is like betting a hopping hard way, One way to win and 35 ways to loose. Lmao.

    The few times I've read a review, and purchase the flavor, it was to sickly sweet, and ruined some good juice trying to fix it. When buying juice, I just ordered what sounded good to me. And had a front line winner more times than not. Found 3 flavor that I loved. After I stepped up to rba's and my juice consumption went up, started DIY juices. So far have created 3 ADV's that I keep in supply. Still have 10 flavor extract's that I haven't played with yet. one of my mixes is so good, that after I gave a sample to a friend, he asked if I could make him some more. lol

    Basically I grew tired of hit an miss and decided to join the DIY crowd, and simply love it. Make a 10 ml sample, so if it's not quite what I'm after, I don't make it again, if its to die for, then I write the recipe down and make a large batch. I now have 4 rba tanks, so just rotate the flavor through them. With the extract's I have, I'll just try to find 4 or 5 great mixes and stick with them. Right now I have enough nic, VG & PG to mix up 1200ml of juice, so am set until till spring or summer. lol.
    P.S.: the cat bites!
    and the chinchilla too!!

    Like most have already suggested, it's a crap shoot. Sample packs and small quantities are your best friend. You will start to build a list of juices you like. Every time you order those, add one kind of randomly, even if you don't think you will like it. You'll be shocked at some of the juices you will end up liking, especially as your tastes change over time.

    I go to my local vape store to test out what flavors they have. Then I go to the next one and do the same. Here in Socal each store has its own unique bar of juices... And there are plenty of stores to visit.

    I've tried many, but the sites I find to be consistently good are virginvapor and vaporetti. Both have very good customer service. Vaporetti is natural 100% American made juice, and virgin vapor has an excellent line of all organic juices. But your ratio choices are only 50/50 or 100% VG. I personally go with the 100% VG, but that's just my preference. Both sites offer extra flavor shots at no addition cost. From there I just read the reviews. Virgin vapor has sample packs u can pick 3 different kinds for ur sample pack. I found this extremely helpful when trying to find my favorite vape. Personally, I don't like any of the juices that aren't natural or organic because I inevitably get the chemical taste. Hope this helps

    Pretty much how most noob vapers do, I guess.

    My sampler from Vapor Chef will be here today and judging from what others had said I think I may have picked some good ones. I am excited. I got five from them. Next month is the Halo tobacco sampler. I can't wait for that one as I hear good things about them.
