My quest to find a menthol that is similar to a real cigarette...
I have been trying various menthol flavors for a month now.
With little success. I have almost given up. For the last 20 plus years, I have been a die hard Newport smoker. Non menthol's make me gag. I blame my mother but that's another story. I was such a loyal Newport smoker. I just couldn't smoke anything else. Although other menthol cigs didn't necessarily cause me to gag and puke, they didn't offer that throat hit that Newport did.
First and foremost.
I will give Halo's Mystic and Halo's Cool Mist a good thumbs up, but pricey. $20 for 30ml. I started with Halo. And love these 2 menthol's. I will always have Mystic and Cool Mist in my arsenol. I do highly recommend.
side note: they do need to steep for a good week.
What i found was that most menthol's, or ice flavors were really high doses of peppermint flavoring. Giving a similar experience as eating a flavored Hall's. I'm talking serious frost bite on the throat. This was causing me to waste money on not only different juices, but clearomizers as well. I just continued to look for away to mute that frost bite feeling.
I decided to buy a ton of flavored e juices that sounded yummy, but without the added menthol. I found that I could find these flavors pretty cheap. I can find a flavored ejuice for about $7 for 30 ml and sometimes less. Now here's the secret... I bought menthol separate. Not crystals, menthol e juice. Already diluted.
Now i fill my clearo with what ever juice i want, and i add a few drops of menthol e juice.
usually about 4 or 5 drops per 2 ml.
Oh my gosh. this is giving me a real menthol feel. Like what my Newport analogs use to give me.
With the benefit of a much better taste.
I can even use my EVOD BCC which i had sworn off. I just adjust the amount of menthol. This has really opened up vaping for me. I was ready to throw in the towel. Now I'm ready to experiment with tobacco flavors.
I had to share this information.
Up until now I really didn't think I was going to be able to give up smoking.
I mean yeah sure, vaping is fun, and tasty. It just wasn't satisfying my need for that cigarette.
Now I'm in Vape Heaven.
My current favorite is 1.5 ml of banana split e juice, with 4-5 drops of menthol e juice.
I can't say it tastes like banana, but i can say it's the perfect sweetness with the perfect amount of menthol, and the perfect throat hit that i've been searching for. Runner up is cantaloupe e juice with about 4 drops of menthol.
