So when trying to decide on a new juice flavors, do you just read others and it's luck of the draw?

    I have read many reviews from others on the forum trying to find a tobacco flavor or maybe something else. Do you just take a chance and purchase a 10 ml or less bottle and hope for the best?

    I just read the descriptions and see if I think I'll like the flavors.

    I definitely read any reviews I can find, but is always a gamble unless you can go to the store and sample it.

    It is a crap shoot for sure in the beginning. As a newbie, I like it when vendors offer a sample pack.

    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.

    I read the description + reviews, search Google to see if anyone else mentions it and then I make the call. It's hit or miss when vendors do shoddy descriptions or those that give you "it tastes like a hint of sunshine in paradise" - I tend to click the "X" in the corner when I come across anything remotely close.

    I don't expect vendors to give me everything that's in a secret blend (i.e. one they've work to perfect - Bobas Bounty for instance), but if they can't give me some clue as to what it *really* tastes like, I'm not buying, period.

    Get samplers and read in the eliquid section. You will eventually read someone who likes the flavors you do. Ask questions --have you tried this etc. What I have found is some of the most hyped juices are rather nasty. That one I can't figure out, but everyone has different tastes. For me finding a flavor I liked was the hardest part so I learned to make my own. Even if you don't like a juice there are lots of ways to salvage it. Maybe dilute or add a bit of a different flavor, check the diy forum for more info.

    Well, I just ordered five 6ml testers from vapor chef. I got a little bit of everything. Some got good reviews, like Hobbes blood, another tobacco they sell and the chocolate banana, I think that's what it is. A couple more I took a chance. It should be interesting. I read the "what are using now" thread every day and take some from there. There seem to be a lot of repeats, which is a good thing.

    while trying I found my favorit liquid coincidently. After that I sampled every liquid I can reach mostly I thought as passable. Most of them did not. But since I liked cappucino taste with hokkah and my son bought which he thought a liquid but a flavor in fact. I use 4-5 drops on the liquids I did not like and I have several cappucino flavored liquids.

    Can't go wrong with them. Awesome e-juices... Btw, I do read a lot of reviews and watch a lot too on youtube. But as someone said in some of those reviews, you can never know what to expect from juice until you try it. Lately I tried two juices, that LOT of people from vaping community LOVE. Man, I couldn't stand the taste of it.

    Best regards,

    Another note is your taste may evolve down the line. When i first started to quit smoking i wanted only tobacco flavors. I didn't even give any other flavor types a thought. After about a year of strictly tobacco flavor, i gave a fruit/tropical flavor a try and i found one that is my current go to liquid and haven't touched tobacco flavor for a while.

    Also the mixture has a lot to do with it. Nic levels, PG/VG % can make a flavor overwhelming or very mild. But that is the fun part, trying it out then maybe customizing for me.

    I did a search using the flavor I wanted. Tried to see what was recommended over and over - especially from long time vapors.

    Dorky Stud by Vapetrik. Look no further. All of Rip's juices are absolutely fantastic. Complex flavors. I have struggled to vape absolutely anything else but their juices for months now. DS and Khlorine are my go to juices. (Khlorine isnt a tobacco flavor though). He has 3 tobacco flavors on there. DS, Joe Kuhr and a new one named The Right Stuff.

    I agree with Caridwen...
    Best to buy samples to find your likes and dislikes. When I first began vaping I bought 30 wide ranging samples based on Vet's recommendations. Out of those 30 I liked 10. Immediately ordered another 20 and out of those I liked 10…so out 50 different flavors I enjoyed 20. Months later I tried those 30 samples that I disliked and enjoyed all but one. Whether it was because my tastes had changed or they needed steeping I don’t know. Realize also "same name" juices will vary greatly in taste from vendor to vendor as they all have diff recipes and order ingredients from diff Suppliers.
    In those days a 30 ml bottle of juice was $22- if I had bought full sized bottles it would've been very costly and frustrating.
