    Hi All,
    I have juice from 2 different companies, but the same flavor - hazelnut.

    One is 10mg/ml of nicotine and the other is 20mg/ml.

    Now, I know that every supplier has their own 'recipe', but that 20mg/ml juice tastes pretty harsh to me. Is that normal? Are the higher mg/ml mixtures generating a different taste?

    I have noticed the same thing. The higher nicotine content does make a juice harsher, in my experience

    I find that higher nic gives a harsher throat hit, which is part of the reason why smokers just making the switch to vaping start with 18mg or 24mg. Nicotine has a tendency to have a more peppery taste which I think contributes to the harsher hit. The lower the nic, the smoother the flavor will be with a lesser throat hit.

    Hi B,

    Also consider that each vendor's recipe may include vastly different ingredients to achieve the same "flavour".
    Nicotine base not withstanding.

    Have fun

    :thumb: This.

    My favorite online e-liquid vendor (Dripeez) offers flavor boosts for higher nic levels specifically to counter the influence that the higher nic has on the juice's flavor. When I was ordering some no-nic flavored e-liquid for my daughter, the mixologist made the comment that she wouldn't need to add any flavor boosts when she mixed her e-liquids.

    Hey Bad, first I've heard of them. Notice they mostly offer fruit flavors, no cake etc. Could you please give me some advice about using flavor percentages? I've never ordered a custum blend like this site offers, and don't know where to start. I'm sure there's a trick to blending three flavors for instance. thanks buddy.

    best regards, larry mac

    Best advice would be to contact the vendor. When ordering the custom no-nic flavors for my daughter I spoke with her on the phone and after listening to what I wanted she made recommendations on whether flavor boosts were needed.

    At the bottom of each page for the different flavors, there is a "how to" to help you decide for yourself whether to add flavor boosts or not, depending upon the nic percentage.

    I highly recommend Dripeez. Best flavor reproduction of any vendor I've tried. The fruit flavors taste like the real fruits, nothing artificial or "chemical". My favorite is the Golden Apple; I use it alone or I add some of her Cinnamon or Rum with it for some variety. I also like the Coffee.

    I've noticed that as well, but I also used to use a variable voltage battery, too. I started at 6, and now I'm hanging somewhere around 12-18, depending on the kind of flavor I want.

    the higher nic level could lead to more throat hit as well to keep in mind the pg/vg levels of both juices...higher pg can lend to harsher throat hits. And of course no two juices are the same, even sometimes from the same vendor....
