    Reading GREAT things about Virgin Vapor for juice ... and I really am going to have to get some and try. I do have a question though, what is the difference between the Virgin Vapor line and the Absolute Virgin Vapor line ... I know it's a difference between a base of organic ethyl alcohol and no alcohol, but how does this coincide with taste and vape? My husband and I have only vaped with Johnson Creek's Red Oak VG which I do not believe contains alcohol. There are some lovely flavors I would like to order, but just thought I would ask these questions first. :)

    Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing everyone's responses.

    Hi NetteG-
    I can't fully answer your question but I can say I am currently vaping the Shell Shocked Hazelnut and the Naked Vanilla. Both are from the "Absolute" line. Both flavors taste exactly as described, no artificial taste to them at all. It is like eating hazelnuts or a vanilla bean.

    I am not sure how the equivalent would compare from the standard line but I am sold!

    thanks Black Strat.... and Spicy I was actually able to speak directly to Kitty with Virgin Vapor and she explained that some folks are sensitive to ethyl alcohol similar to the way some folks can not vape PG... the cool thing is she told me if there is an issue you can let it sit in a dark place with the top off almost like a steep and the ethyl alcohol will evaporate. i can post her exact instructions if anyone would care for the information. Put in my first ordwr with them and can't wait to get the flavors. :). Thanks again!

    When I first get my juices I leave the caps off (I even pull the nipple cap) and let them breathe for a day or two. If it contains alcohol it should leave, and it helps steep them I believe.

    Dallas274 and anyone else interested, this is what Kitty had to say concerning Virgin Vapor and the Ethyl Alcohol line of liquid.

    "As far as the ethyl alcohol extracted flavorings vs. Absolute extracted flavorings, a few people are sensitive to the smell and taste of the alcohol in organically flavored liquids. For example, I cannot smell it or taste it, but my sister can. Absolute flavorings solve this issue for those sensitive to the alcohol. Another very good way to eliminate any alcohol taste is to steep the liquids UNCAPPED for about 48 hours, which allows the alcohol to evaporate. Just uncap, set somewhere out of direct light and free of drafts, cover with a tissue and allow it to sit."


    Just great to know that even a product with something you may be sensitive to can still be used by performing something as simple as leaving a cap off of a bottle for a couple of days. Thanks again for the information, Kitty! :thumbs:

    I have her Bananas Foster and Cherry Vanilla Swirl and they are deelish. Lot's of flavor even at 50/50. Next time I'm getting 70/30...that flavor burst should burn out my retinas!

    HA HA HA! Spicy. My husband and I use only 100% VG ... we discovered early on that PG does not sit well with us at all ... I saw the cherry vanilla swirl as well ... so many decisions and only so much cash. LMAO!

    And Thanks for the info Figgy ... I had actually seen that on the site, but didn't know about some people being sensitive to the alcohol itself. :)
