    A good test for me is actually to drop a bit of juice on finger and lick it off lol. Really get alot of the flavor notes and how it should taste. though definetely a little drop only, when I smoked cartos I flooded one cause i was high altitude and literally drank 3/4 a tank of juice. Not a fun time, poor life decision.

    The general consensus is, our regular prices already so competitive (relative to the quality of the liquid and the level of service that we provide) that a sampler isn't required.

    I actually wrote more about that here...
    Not mention, that if he offered 5ml bottles, you would be disappointed after you tried them. All his flavors are so good that 5ml is not going to cut it. Heck I have learned that it not even really worth it to try them in the 15ml bottles. It disappears way to fast. For the most part I order 30ml as my samples now when trying one of his new flavors, although I think I may have to change that to sampling 50ml bottles. Have not had a bad flavor from him yet.

    I am doing a 30/80 of it. I did the pure Frenilla afterwards. It was brilliant. It is hard to put into words how much I love Frenilla. It dominates my life.

    Funny you should mention that RED - Katy and I were just talking about that. Early in our company history, it was all 15s and 50s. Lately, we're seeing very very few 15s and many more 30s... the regulars still consider the 50ml bottles to be a first purchase mainstay (at 44c/ml, why not?)... but the 30s are becoming the new 'sample size', even for the new folks.

    I've been playing with the ratios of Bedrock and Grape Ape - a 50/50ish mix shows promise.

    I'll be the baddy. Some people look at it this way: I can get 50ml for ~22.00. Or I can try 3 flavors for ~24.00 to see which one(s) I want 50 ml of next time. Breaking it down to per/ml works best for later when you know that your subjectively subject tasterization has caused a craving for a specifical flavor.

    I agree, the pricing is pretty "flat" and overall (most would agree) it's more than reasonable... 15s, 30s, 50s, 500s - can't go wrong.

    It all depends on what size sample you want.
