    Hello. I received my Tiki sample today.

    I don't vape anything but Fusion (which is unflavored) so I didn't have any other residual flavors on my atomizer for the Tiki to compete with.

    I used 4 drops of the Tiki, and commenced to a furious bout of sneezing almost immediately.

    I found the menthol flavoring to be a bit more overpowering than advertised, and did not detect any non-mentholated tobacco flavor. The tropical undertones and menthol flavorings do not seem to pair well.

    Other than that, I am most grateful for the speedy delivery of the remainder of my order.

    :)

    Mine should be in the mailbox tomorrow. I have two people who love menthol, one of them also loves pina colada so she my really dig this. I like menthol ice on occassion, so I am interested in trying it. My husband ended up liking the tribeca even though I didn't so I am guessing the tiki will go the same route, there will be three of us trying it out, maybe we all won't love it but I would be willing to bet my next order that one of us will.

    So far I like the Tiki juice. A Pina Colada undertone with a menthol kick is exactly what it reminds me of.

    just got mine. I have a non internet vaping coworker who loves both menthol and pina colada. I am gonna give it a few puffs and pass it her way, she'd be a much fairer reviewer because I stock her with halo menthol ice and tv pina colada on a regular basis, they are her favorites.

    ETA: Just took a puff....hmmm, I might not hand it off. I smelled it and thought, nah, I ain't gonna like this as I got a vanilla and pina colada scent. I vaped it and got a great menthol hit with subtle vanilla-y and coconut undertones.

    But in fairness I guess I will let her and my daughter's BF try it. He likes vanilla and menthol.

    This is kinda nice, menthol with something different. Whodathunk! It is a keeper in my book Jay! As I vape they kinda keep bouncing back and forth though, one hit menthol first then the other flavors, next hit, other flavors and then the menthol, which is actually really great!

    Tiki sounds interesting. I wish I had waited a week on my big order. I think I would have likes Tiki more than Tribeca. My husband is enjoying the Tribeca though!

    Interesting. I taste no mental at all and I tape quite a bit of their Menthol Ice. I tasted spices, perhaps cloves and vanilla, maybe a little cream. Very nice flavor and a great flavor more Halo to branch out of their comfort zone. Vapor was great as is all Halo, but this was more of a laid back smooth tape - I would have preferred much more throat hit.

    Hmm..perfumey isn't good. We try to avoid that at all costs. Glad to hear you like it overall though.

    Sorry, not perfumey, but i would say some flavors were little intense as i started waping it the moment i got the package in as i couldn't resist the smell :) Not like others perfumery soapy taste at all.

    Hi Melnick, thank you for the clarification its much appreciated. Tiki Juice does have some very unique flavors, but I am glad you weren't referring to the "classic" perfumey taste of cheaper e-liquids.

    I am gonna have to say this is the best Halo juice ever made. I am vaping 6 mg nic by choice so all juice tastes a little bland to me. 12 mg tastes better but I really want to stay with 6. I think that is why Tiki works for me - it has a pretty robust taste and smell.

    I thought at first Malibu was my favorite but after nearly finishing the sample now I'm pretty sure Tiki is about as good as it gets.

    Sorry to hijack, but I adore your avatar. Although they could not be more different, Audrey and Siouxsie are just about the top 2 women on my list. Florence from Florence + the Machine is climbing the charts rapidly... :2cool:

    Tiki is one of the most interesting juices I've ever tried. I think this is one that would have to grow on me. The website does a good job by describing it "unique" with "sweet tropical notes." I definitely taste the vanilla (pina colada?) and the menthol in the end. Definitely worth a try if you like those flavors.

    My new bff, JB, sent me a surprise sample with my order. Tiki is great. I get a very nice mix of menthol and vanilla. I will review better later after I get tired of ODing on my Malibu!

    My first vape was filled with delicious wintergreen. I expected vanilla because that was the main scent I got. But the vanilla is very mild, which I think is good. A little licorice, and the tobacco is nicely mild. It is almost like a leafy tea tobacco.

    I agree with what TampaSteve said about the robust flavors. Thet are robust and detectable, but in no way are they overbearing. Tiki is a wonderful tasty vape. A very nice departure for Halo. Good job!

    Thanks Player....Tiki is definatelty outside the realm of the normal Halo tobaccos. A very difficult flavor to describe, but one of my favorites.
