    Okay, I was down to my last batch and I decided to do my usual TFA Original Caramel with EM and AP... Then I got this brilliant (NOT) :( idea to throw in a small percentage of TFA Honey ( which never tried).

    End Result = GOD AWFUL!!! :(

    Apparently no one warned ever me that TFA Honey is really gross...

    I'm asking experienced DIY mixers if they have any ideas on how to doctor this horrible taste out of my last batch of Nic? I used 15% TFA Orig. Caramel, 1% AP, and 1% TFA Honey

    Any advice would be Greatly Appreciated!

    You could let it sit and steep for a few weeks to see if it improves any and/or make a new batch without the honey and experiment by making a test sample by mixing 1 ml of the bad stuff with 2 ml of the good stuff. Perhaps a wee bit more AP would increase the nuttiness enough to cover the offending taste as well if it's still detectable after diluting it.

    I assume by your last batch that your now out of nic base. You can try diluting by half and add more flavoring (- the honey) and put up with the reduced nicotine until you get more. That will at least kill the honey taste by half.

    Thanks Road you caught me in the nick of time.... Was about to do something desperate, like adding straight PG to top off. I can't remake because this the last of my nicotine until I can get more, which is why I'm so upset. Think I'm going to take your advice and try to make a small sample and doctor it up with something like AP you suggested. ;)

    Great idea, Danny! It probably won't cut my Nic down significantly. ;)

    Word to the wise - Stay far away from TFA Honey... It is HORRIBLE! :(

    If you have TFA Smooth, you could take a small amount of your mix and try adding a drop or 2 and see if that smooths out the honey taste. Just a thought, I have never used TFA Honey before.

    *Multi Flavoring mix. Needs time to meld.

    Place about 5ml in a bottle and do hot bath............Keep it hot and shake often for several hours.
    Set aside open and test next day.
    a Small batch will steep faster and hot Bath will help accelerate things. You might get surprised.

    I only make note as the amount you used was rather low to completely corrupt the Flavor.
    I have made an RY4 mix that I hated - actually tasted Soggy - and 4 days later wasn't bad. Another week went by and I emptied the Bottle in one evening. Totally different from its starting taste.

    I use TFA Honey and it's good for some things but for others I use strictly LA Honey.

    Sometimes I even get brave and mix two different brands of the same flavor to create something even more unique.

    Vape Wizard and smooth are basically the same thing.

    Da true if fresh mixed, but it's actually a good honey after ~3 week steep (IMHO). Though not much help for you at the moment...

    Maybe it's time to buy a bottle off the shelf? Good luck.

    Sorry, other than diluting I have no help for your situation.

    I do use TFA honey in my 555 but only a tiny amount. I think it gives my 555 some depth.
