I'm one of those Vapers that loves the throat hit as well. While I do use liquid nic, between 6mg and 9mg, in my juices... my throat hit and vaping enjoyment comes from naturally extracted tobacco eliquid (NET). It has kept me off the stinkies for years now, yet, I still get to enjoy a real tobacco flavor with my vape.
There are NET tobacco varietal blends which are hard hitting throat punchers, pleasingly sweet/gentle, and just about everything in between. And for the record, you don't have to worry about the nicotine content in straight NET, because the final concentration of nicotine in NET is neglegable at best. However, you get pure tobacco flavor satisfaction. Win-Win!
