    I'll admit I haven't tried them all yet... but I plan to.

    What I have tried is:
    Hawaiian White Guava
    Plum Crazy
    Strawberry Granita
    Celestial Honeydew
    Lemon Rose water
    Juicy Watermelon

    Lemon Rose water is probably the most unique and fascinating liquid I've ever tried. Period

    But my vote would have to be Hawaiian White Guava

    I love the Konas, especially the Caramel Kona Milkshake but my favorite changes over time. Plum Crazy was a favorite for a while, then Pineapple Party Animal, then Kona Coffee Milkshake followed by Creme Caramel and finally Caramel Kona Milkshake blew me away. But I also loved the Blueberry Cheesecake, the Hawaiian White Guava and the Celestial Honeydew.

    Basically, of all the ones I really like, my favorite is usually the one I am vaping at the moment, lol!

    Double Espresso - well-steeped (uncapped for 48 hours, then recapped and tucked away for a couple of weeks), well-steeped Kona Coffee Milkshake, Crème Caramel (uncap for 48 hours and it's ready to go!). I'm not much of a fruit fan, but I love Plum Crazy and Hawaiian White Guava enough to make sure I have some on hand. :)

    I absolutely love Strawberry Granita!

    I am looking forward to trying Naked Vanilla but with an order mix-up was sent Thill In Vanilla instead. Now I know my taste buds are different but Thrillin Vanilla is a bit too spicy for me.

    I would love to hear other recommendations from the absolute flavor line, from experienced vapors especially, like redhen and kittypie...

    are there any downsides to the absolute line vs the regular organic e-juice from virgin vapors? besides the higher cost obviously

    I am not too crazy about the white raspberry souffle either, so i have it steeping along with my Thrill In vanilla.

    but strawberry granita-- mmm mmm - so good

    If you liked strawberry granite, try snakebite. It is one of my favorites. Pricewise I think you may be comparing different size bottles. I think the price is only a few dollars between them.

    I love Strawberry Granita. The Snakebite I had last summer. I really enjoyed it but haven't re-ordered yet.
    The Absolute fruits were what made ecigs work for me. My tastes have since expanded and now my favourite from the Absolute line is the Il Vino Veritas but I also love the Vanilla Latte, Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich, Swiss Almond and Forbidden Fig.
    And then there is the regular line....lots to love there too.....

    The cost difference between the two is only $2.51 per 1 ounce bottle. Definitely worth it. :)
    Enjoy!

    We need to get the word out about the In Vino Veritas...best new Absolute flavor of 2013!

    LouP is right...original Virgin Vapor line is $19.99 for one ounce, Absolute Virgin line is $22.50, except for the Forbidden Fig and Night Blooming Jasmine, which are $25 (more expensive ingredients). :)

    We also overfill our 1 ounce bottles by quite a bit. They are nearly 35 mL, not 30!

    Well I just altered my second order to an ounce, because of your post, Annette. Glad I found you. Please keep it up! Prompt delivery service like Amazon! Such a difference from Ganges-River-Tasting e-juice!

    I ordered Naked Vanilla because of red hens glowing reviews of it.
    I must say I do not like Thill In Vanilla.

    looking forward to trying Hawaiian Guava, Forbidden Fig, celestial honeydew, Creme Caramel, Plum Crazy, in vino, snakebite, & pinnepple, from the absolute line.

    As an aside, I liked all three of the three non-absolute sampler flavors I tried - french vanilla, black marshmellow cherry, and blackberry vanilla.

    Whereas, it was 1 out of 3 for the absolute, as I didn't like Thill in Vanilla or Raspberry Souffle, maybe they need a good steeping? (in the process). i only liked strawberry granita out of the three absolute VV flavors i tried, but I liked it way more than the three non-absolute flavors.

    I would like to know which of the non-absolute flavors have alcohol in them, and which don't.

    What is the process with distilled water to dilute flavors after evaporation?

    Do any of the flavors contain vitamins/minerals/enzymes beneficial biomolecules?

    also, regarding the alcohol in the regular vv liquids - i cannot have ANY alcohol (medical issues / meds) but if i uncap, steep, recap, shake, uncap, and repeat 2-3x a day over about a week-two weeks, all the alcohol evaporates right off. i have not had any trouble with the alcohol in the regular flavours (ie vv french vanilla, blueberry, &c) doing this; if i am particularly anxious to use a liquid, i will take a few of the "boots" / "condoms" off blank cartos, fill them up about 75%, and just let them sit out for about a day (less volume = less alcohol/volume to evaporate) and then just use the remaining liquid in cartos/tanks/&c ... although if you can manage to wait, the concurrent steeping over at least a week really does wonders for every 100% vg flavour i have tried!! good luck and enjoy those FANTASTIC vv vapes!!

    Thanks for the recommendations everyone!

    I just ordered a 3 pack Absolute Sample:
    Flavor #1: Organic Hawaiian White Guava E liquid
    Flavor #2: Organic Celestial Honeydew E liquid
    Flavor #3: Organic In Vino Veritas E liquid

    I will let you all know how i like them. I am curious if anyone loved the Thill in Vanilla or Raspberry Souffle, it is wild how much gustatory variation exists even in such a small group of people. Maybe taste buds / papillae are idiosyncratic?

    I have a few questions that refer to consumer-safety information that is general not to reveal any of your proprietary trade secrets about the organicness' of VV's e-juice (I am in no way a competitor, just interested for my own nutritional intake)

    Are VV's flavors extracted from organic heirloom open pollinated fruits/herbs/spices/plants, or are they just conventionally grown strawberries, melons, fruits, herbs, and vegetables? I am assuming no GMOs?
    Or is just the nicotine organically grown?

    Blue Violet is the most amazing flavor ever. I'm a sucker for violet gum and candy, and VV's Blue Violet is perfectly true to taste. There are about 10 flavors that are tied for my second favorite, I am planning on eventually sampling their whole catalogue. I have a deep love for odd vintage candy flavors that aren't common anymore, which is probably why I love all the VV florals. B.V. surpasses them all, however, it's not overpowering or perfumey even at extra strength.

    Maple french toast is immaculate; tastes just like the real thing and I LOVE maple flavored anything; candies, deserts, I even mix a bit with with bbq sauce/teriyaki sauce for better flavor (maple syrup, not my precious eliquid) lol :p. I'm trying blueberry maple syrup next mmm mm. Also, bella amaretto is fantastic. It reminds me of almond cookies or really good cherry vanilla ice cream for some reason. I'm ordering a big bottle of this. I'm a huge fan of really sweet flavors..

    Husband is in love with singing the blues (blueberry) He hardly touches anything else, by mistake I got him blueberry bliss last time...he was not pleased :/

    Omnispro, just a quick note to let you know I'll be back later to answer your questions. Gotta run as Mondays we're catching up from being closed for the weekend but I won't forget about you!

    Thanks Annette, I am so glad I stumbled onto your e-juice after subsisting on China-made gunk. I would be thrilled if you could answer my questions without giving away your proprietary trade secrets and such.

    Does the ultrasonic vaporizer in the e-cigs require glycerin as a flavor carrier,
    or would it work with just aqueous extracts?

    I am curious if it is known whether people prefer the taste of the Absolute Products over the Regular Organic Line? Right now I am leaning towards the Regular organic flavors, as they have been all vape-able, and consistently good on every flavor.

    I love the overfilled Strawberry Granita (extra low strength).
    Is it possible to adjust nicotine levels down to 2 mg for an ounce bottle? I am quite sensitive to nicotine..

    Omnispro, sorry for the late reply. This last week was one of those weeks where I worked constantly but my to do list just kept getting longer! Thank you for your patience with me!

    To answer your questions, all the non-absolute flavors have some organic ethyl alcohol in them as do the tobacco flavors. To dilute with distilled water, add just a SMALL amount at a time as a little goes a long way! Generally about 1 to 1.5 mL per 1 ounce bottle will be plenty and more may make the e-liquid too diluted. All flavors will have phytochemicals in them because they are extracted from plants! I have never tested for specific vitamins, minerals etc and I'm not sure exactly how the benefits would translate when vaped but I'd sure love to know the answer to that, too!
