    It's a question many are asking.

    I personally was not a huge fan of the old Virus. It wasn't that I didn't like it, it was just ok to me. I decided to give the new a chance and I really like it. More tobacco and a little less "sticky sweet" but still has that warm maple type undertone.

    Obviously it will take some time to see what happens as it ages, but for those familiar with Virus, how do you think the new will compare?

    What about Wakonda? I still have a few months worth, so I didn't order this round. What do you think of the changes? What about the other flavors?

    I'm finding a lot more flavor in CLS, but I'm not sure if it's because of the formula change, or because I'm sub-ohming these days.

    I wound up getting The Virus in 18mg and Wakonda & CLS in 12mg. I really like them all. The Virus tastes a bit dry to me if that makes any sense. I need a bottle of water at the ready when vaping that. Perhaps it’s the high nicotine. The CLS is great but not an ADV for me as it’s a bit too sweet. The Wakonda is perfection IMHO. I feel that the tobacco note is slightly more pronounced and I like it. There is plenty of flavor in these new formulations.

    I like the new Virus. I wasn't sure if I detected any change at first but after vaping a couple tanks I agree about the dryness. I like it better this way.

    I'm going to have to give the new Wakonda a try. I liked the old version so the new one should be a real treat.

    Well with the change to 30PG/70VG I won't be able to try it (even if I wanted to), I don't go over 30VG, and I had to dilute the previous to up the PG, now it would be impossible with the current ratio. Clark seems to be going after the Cloud Chasers, instead of the Tootle Puffers that just want to quit cigarettes. That is his choice, I just hope it works for him.

    Same here Burnie. I have reactions to any liquid with over 60% VG so I won't be buying any of the new reformulated liquids. That's ok though...I still have quite a bit of the old NT to go through so I'm good. And like you said, it's Clark's choice and I'm good with it. :)

    I will probably be the same. High Vg and I don't get along. Maybe I will try the Wakonda at a later date but for now I have enough of the old to last awhile.
    Hoping down the road we will see a return of some 50/50.
    Can't wait to see what follows Betelgeuse :)

    If enough demand is there to make it clear that he has a market, perhaps he will work it in the short runs.
    Keep after him and you may convince him.

    I agree, I haven't had CLS in a few years, I found it a bit lacking in flavor for me, so went for stronger flavors like ACB.

    But this new CLS seems more flavor for sure, and maybe just me, but I seem to get a hint of a fruit flavor to it, know really enjoying this new CLS :)

    anyone try the new Betelgeuse?

    once i switched to sub-ohm tank, the old recipe was unvapable. still ahve two bottles at home. Is the new recipe thicker? the old stuff was very harsh in sub ohm....also, this on the site doesnt indicate what a "basic" tank is... to me, that says NOT sub ohm...

    * PG/VG Ratio = 30PG/70VG <<Wicks Good In Basic Tanks

    I haven't opened mine yet. It's getting good feedback on FB. The sub ohm crowd on there seems pleased with the changes.

    Just finished my first bottle of CLS. I went to change the coils (getting ready to try another juice) and I was surprised with how clean my coils looked (using an Horizon Arco tank). With a lot of my juices, when I get to the end of a 60ml bottle, it's definitely been the time to change coils; next time, I'm going to try vaping two 60ml bottles, and see how the coils hold up after that.

    If that's the case, then I'm definitely looking forward to trying Dream Wave...:hubba:

    Dream Wave is awesome I think... It's an old label with a totally reworked concept and recipe... One that I have had in pocket for a long time and always wanted to do.
