    Some of the juice at Highbrow is wonderful. Loving the Belgian Waffle. I also like the Cinnamon, French Pipe, RY4, Tabac Du Perique. Dark Chocolate is OK. Cappuccino Diablo is OK. Mocha Hazelnut Cream is OK. I haven't had a fruit flavor from them I really liked and I don't have the patience to steep longer than a few days. I'm feeling like I should like these more than I actually do. The Malt flavor seems just nasty...I can't put my finger on it...just nasty. Anyone else have experience with Highbrow flavors and how they change/steep over time? I'd like to know your thoughts and suggestions. Go.

    I just got 5 flavors from HighBrow, all 100% VG, all made 23 October got them on 26 October

    Apricot -vaping this right now, definitely light and airy, very fruity, does taste like a ripe apricot. I would almost double the flavor of this and add it to a tobacco vape, but seems fairly decent on it's own too. Throat hit to me is lighter too, but I like a decent throat hit in something like Ave's Bobas Bounty and/or Johnson Creek's Tennessee Cured

    Limoncello - Definitely Lemon there, this one actually might do better to steep over some time. Good vapor on this one, but again, I won't say much there because it's VG. I could get used to this one for something a little different ... got a bit of a sweet taste to it at exhale. Throat hit is about the same as the apricot.

    HighBrowBacco Exotic - Personally, I did not like this one at all. I could taste light hints of tobacco, but it was overwhelming with maybe a lemongrass flavoring or some other citrus. Decent throat hit, but I would have preferred the other flavorings to be more under the tobacco instead of all over the top of it masking a good thing.

    Buttered Rum and Then Some - VERY light on the flavoring when ordering as is, light on the throat hit as well unless I take a good long drag then the throat hit is a bit better. I would go at least double flavoring if I ordered this again and maybe some extra throat hit. I like it though, you can taste the buttery rum flavors both inhale on the tongue and on exhale as well. I would order again, just customize it. :)

    Hazelnut Cream - This is MY FAVORITE of all I ordered and bigger bottles WILL be in my future. I personally like this one right out the gate, no extras ... decent amount of throat hit, great vapor, taste is AWESOME ... I can almost taste the cream added to the hazelnuts. I would compare this to a good hazelnut liqueur ... really smooth and creamy with just a touch of bite that sticks with you on exhale. Mmmmm good! I can only imagine if this one steeped it would probably be even better.

    I am looking to put in another order and maybe do some customizing. I think HighBrow is onto something with the customizations, next best thing to making it yourself essentially ... Just my opinion, of course. I want to try some of the other tobaccos and will have to check out the waffle as well, and looking at the macaroon just because it sounds interesting. I understand everyone's taste is different, but I think HighBrow is one of the better vendors I've tried. :)

    Thanks for the input, NetteG. 100% VG is certainly a different breed altogether when it comes to flavor and TH, but your opinion is valued. I'm also curious what others have found in their experience with Highbrow in the 50/50-80/20 range. Anyone?

    I have there Strawberry Lemonade and Cappaccino Diablo... 60vg/40pg the Strawberry lemonade is ok... a bit soapy tasting... Cappaccino Diablo... kinda on the strong flavoring side but I do like it.

    I've found that their flavors don't need any steeping at all, or at least the flavors I enjoy: Blueberry, Cheesecake Torte, Tiramisu, and Creme Brulee. The flavors I didn't like, Caramel, Belgian Waffle, RY4, and Buttered Rum and then some, no amount of steeping improved their flavor.

    Got Highbrow RY4 from a middle man vendor and it was steeped for the past 4 months and I tried to like it. It now makes me ill when I smell it.

    I vape Highbrow's out of the mailbox. I like to drip the tobaccos, but the other flavors are great in a tank. My favs are the cigar, french pipe, exotic blend, RY4, and cappuccino diablo with extra cream. I've tried 14 of their flavors and have had multiple reorders of their tobaccos and a large order of their cappuccino diablo. I always get 100% VG with extra flavor in every juice...always. They have a very realistic coconut. Orange de Sangre reminds me of Tang. Strawberry lemonade is tangy which I love. I don't think I've ever had a flavor from them I've disliked. My day isn't complete until I vape cigar and french pipe. I plan on ordering more when I unlock the credit card from its constraints. :laugh:

    I've had Peach Thymbra, Limoncello, Orange de Sangre, and RY4.


    Not a huge fan of artificial peach flavor, so I gave that one away.

    RY4 has much more of a tobacco flavor than other RY4's I've had (its really good!)

    Limoncello is amazing and I love the sweetness.

    Orange de Sangre knocked my socks off with tasty "Tang" flavor, but I noticed it will kill my cartos 2x faster than any other juice I use. After a day or two in the tank, the juice becomes very dark and doesn't even look like the original juice I put in. Love the taste/vapor but I use it sparingly because it will eat up my cartos quickly.
