    Hey,

    I've been vaping for 6 days now and tried 6 juices. 3 supposedly tobacco flavor and 3 non tobacco flavors.

    So far, the tobacco ones I've tried are from CanVape: Marl E boro, DuMaurier and Ry4. My favorite from the 3 is Ry4 but still doesn't really taste like cigarette.

    This is probably a question that every noob asks but for the ex-smokers, which e-liquid have you found to be the closest to an analogs?

    Check out Backwoods Brew. Ships to Canada without issue. I've since moved on from tobacco flavors, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Backwoods Applewood Tobacco.

    TBH, it's really not about trying to find a juice that tastes like a cigarette. You'll never find it. Best you can do is find one that you like :)

    IMO... none of them. I tried - because that's what everyone does at first, is try to find a juice that makes vaping taste just like a cigarette - but there aren't any. Here's why... the smoke from burning dried plants and a zillion assorted bad chemicals - and vaporizing a liquid into "fog" are two entirely different things. The closest you'll get is with NET or natural extract tobacco... but for me, that's not close enough - and now, it doesn't matter.

    I found, to my surprise, after pretty much giving up on an attempt to 'replace' tobacco, that I prefer sweet, tart and tangy flavors. So, I'm not the tough, Camel straight smoking biker I was in the 70s and yes - watermelon, cherry, absinthe, pineapple and chocolate raspberry are my new, civilized, metro-sexual vaping flavors. I hated menthol cigarettes, but don't mind it mixed with chocolate or watermelon. Your tastes will change... really. ;-)

    Vaping is not smoking. Tobacco flavor is still the closest thing but, yes we know, it doesn't taste like a cigarette.

    Don't worry, doesn't take long after you start vaping that you can really taste how bad a cigarette actually is :)

    Thank you all for your replies.

    On a side note, I was just browsing through the jugheads thread. What's up with this website? You can only order certain days at certain times for a certain amount of time? I see that he has over 450 juices but still, are his juices that great that it worth the hassle?

    yes,yes and YES lol. Jughead is a very small two or so person production line so they need to control the flood of orders they receive. But please do not try them what ever you do just walk away...that way there is more precious for me whaawhahh it's all mine!!!!


    No seriously give them a shot, practice patience and be organized, that is the way to the juice,light

    Closest thing I've ever tried....... soaking some SNUS in some pg. Definately had that dirty ashtray taste. Realized right then that I really didn't care for trying to find the closest thing to burning tobacco.......... Never looked back.

    I DO like a good strong coffee vape though.......

    I like Do More from Vaporus. Obviously, it's not exactly like a cigarette (it's not ashy) but it comes close to the spirit of a Canadian smoke. No weird flavour notes or too much sweetness.

    This might be a weird suggestion, but I remember when I started that tobacco flavors worked really well in a EGO T atty. It's a dry vape, and mutes flavors a bit, so I found the vapor to be the closest thing to a cig. The EGO T has it's share of problems though and is kind of a forgotten relic. Still, if you really want to get as close as you can to the smoking experience, it might be worth trying out.

    Juicy Clear Dumay and Ego T was my ADV for a long time when I was new. As I stopped craving cigs, I started gravitating towards more vapor production and non-tobacco flavors. I was also tired of the EGO T as I had to replace them more often than I'd like.

    Try Heathers Heavenly Vapes. Try the Huntsman, Legend, Shadow, and/or Heavenly Tobacco. They are NET liquids, and benefit tastewise with a 2 week steep.

    I make my own with flavoring called real cig here in the states.
    Tried many and thats the closes i have came and all i have vaped in last year. Ry4 also good but after a while wanted something less sweet a year ago.
    If your a do it your selfer or become one less flavoring is better too much and the fruity taste always kicks in.

    You let the juice sit there for a while before trying it.

    You know, like letting the tea steep in the kettle.

    The "OC" - So-CAL
    Been going thru the same thing, about a month in now. Have tried a half dozen sources, couple from each. Most did not really like at all, odd flavors. Then I found myfreedomsmokes.com juices - Red Luck Tobacco, closest thing to a cig yet. I have also sampled their 555, Dunhill gold, US Light, and Turkish Blend. The last one I like really well but it's a bit too strong sometimes so I've started mixing it with the Red Luck and found nirvana.

    I have also found various clearos produce various flavors from the same juice. A standard ohm, standard clearo CE4 seems to produce the best flavor for me, standard voltage, plenty of vapor, great flavor. Some of the clearos leak, have to keep unscrewing and tissue out the excess juice on the battery contact and neck of the battery. They can get gurgley so I know there's some liquid accumulating. Then they seem to get going well and no issues. The problem clearos I toss and use a new one. Have tried some rebuildable tanks and didn't like the way they vaped.

    So it's a real challenge to find a combo that suits. Just keep trying.

    BTW, a lot of experienced vapers moved on from tobacco flavors to others, but I'm still really enjoying a cig taste replacement. Wifey does the flavors with no nic but they don't do it for me. I'm using 12-18mg nic and very satisfied. PG based liquids, they tend to run 80/20 PG/VG.

    Damn. So close to placing an order with these guys for the Red Luck and then saw that they wanted $30 shipping on a $50 order. That's a bit much. Any Canadian vendors selling decent tobacco flavoured juices?

    Jugheads recently released Original Analog. I gave up on tobacco flavors about a year ago but decided to get this to try and convert some smokers at the office. Should arrive this week....I'll report back after giving it a good steep.
