NicVape E-Flavors Tasting Notes


#42

You are a SF Testing God! Where I do I put my offerings? :strawberry::coconut::apple::heavy_dollar_sign:


#43

Awww you’re too kind. I’m just excited if something I do helps someone in any way, be it big or small. :blush: That being said, if you do happen to order up a few flavors from them based on something I said, feel free to let em know in the notes that I sent ya so they know their generosity was worthwhile. :wink:


#44

You’ve been helpful back since I joined in May. I read your posts, and I make notes to *note what you had posted. To me reading notes like this is similar to someone pointing to a place to visit on a map, instead of wandering around…you know. When I reach that destination I might experience the same things you did, or not. Regardless it’s good to travel there for the experience. - Thank you JoJo.

Oh. Yes. I will of course write them a note and tell them you sent me!


#45

Are you married?


#46

LOL Nope. And never again. :rofl:


#47

Updated with 3 week notes. Sorry I’m late in posting. I tested on Saturday but have been crazy busy.

As a side note, 4 week notes will be more like one month notes (31 or 32 days instead of 28) because I won’t be here Saturday to test them. :slight_smile:


#48

Here’s the final notes, ratings, and suggested percentages for the other half of the flavors. Sorry about the gap between 3 and 6 weeks for some of these. My sister’s wedding and then a Prob and Stats exam meant I didn’t have time. Also, I’ve split it between two posts because the forum yelled at me (which is also why I’ve just made a new post(s) instead of updating the one up there somewhere). :stuck_out_tongue:

Milk | 4 stars | 7.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Definitely getting a milky vibe. More like a powdered milk than a nice whole milk. Not getting any butyric acid flavor so that’s good.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Still just a vibe, no real flavor per se. Milky mouth feel, creamy, less like powdered. More of a flavor on the exhale than I get on the inhale. I’m digging it.
2 weeks - Smooth and creamy. Still not a discernible flavor, really.
3 weeks - Same. A little on the sweet side now. Very mild, milky mouthfeel.
1 month - Good stuff for a milk concentrate. Maybe not perfect, but I think it’s definitely useable and serves it’s purpose.

Mixed Fruit | 4 stars | 3.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Really tart, slightly medicinal. Kind of tastes like a cherry incense at the moment.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - This has mellowed some. Still slightly medicinal and floral, still mostly getting cherry, but not quite as incense-y as it was before.
2 weeks - same. It’s getting better. Still very floral and cherry-tasting. At a lower % it might actually be a decent cherry.
3 weeks - Same, but less floral and cherry medicine tasting. A little more sweet and juicy than before. It’s the same kind of “floral” that is in the dark fruit and dark raz. I’m not hating it. Still think it should be renamed to cherry.
1 month - Still getting a hint of a floral cherry flavor, it’s tart and slightly juicy. I think it’d be a good addition for making a super tart juice or to bring some tartness to an overly sweet fruit flavor. Not something I’d vape alone.

Noisy Elf Cereal | 4 stars | 4.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Definitely getting the rice crispy grain flavor but also some tire rubber back notes, almost like a burnt rice crispy.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Less rubber tire, more rice crispy. Still present though. More grain.
2 weeks - Definitely getting more of a rice crispy taste now. There might be a slight rubber or burnt taste in the background but I’m definitely getting more hopeful that it’ll go away.
3 weeks - Sameish. Rubber is more cardboard. I haven’t had rice crispies in a long time, but I think this is close. At a lower percentage the cardboard/burned/rubber taste from the grain would probably be less intense. Also might help to add a sweetener like marshmallow or honey and a milky/creamy flavor for a more authentic cereal vibe. We’ll see how 4 weeks goes.
1 month - I’d say this is a good rice crispy flavor. It’s the only one I’ve had, but it definitely has a grainy taste and a slight cardboard note that I remember from rice crispies. I think all in all it’d work well for this purpose. A little sweeter than before, but still grain heavy.

Nuts (Mixed) | 5 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Very nutty. Slightly chalky. I can’t nail down any one nut in this. It has a slight buttery/creamy feeling that you’d get from a cashew or peanut but a little bit of bitterness of maybe a pecan or almond. I think I like it.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - I think this would be a really useful nutty flavor. I still can’t really describe a single nut, so I guess it is doing a good enough job of being a mixed nut flavor.
2 weeks - a little more peanut but still very mixed. Maybe even some macadamia or brazil? I think maybe I’m reaching but it is very nice. Nutty, slightly buttery/creamy, very good.
3 weeks - same. I could see this being a favorite and a must have for any nut lover. Could go sweet or savory.
1 month - Same. A very good all-around nut flavor that could be used for nuttiness on its own or to enhance other nuts. I could see it being used in a desert or bakery or with tobaccos.

Oat Circles | 4 stars | 4.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Like the Noisy Elf only oatey instead of ricey. Same rubber tire note. I’m hoping it goes away because I think both will be really good without it.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Like the Noisy Elf, the burnt taste has diminished, but it is still there in the background. Otherwise a very strong grain flavor, much like a cheerio.
2 weeks - burned rubber on this one is a little stronger than it is in the noisy elf. Still getting the cheerio, though.
3 weeks - Same as Noisy Elf. A little sweeter than the elf cereal, more grain. If I try really hard I can still get the rubber, but it’s mostly gone. Grain is not as intense as the elf.
1 month - Same. It’s not quite as strong as the Noisy Elf, but it’s a little darker or heavier. The Elf has a brighter, crisper grain taste, and this one is more bready.

Old Fashioned Donut | 5 stars | 6.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Not bad. A slight bit of that same play doh flavor I get from Cap Glazed, but not as much. Yeast donut, powdered sugar, a touch of cinnamon.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp.
1 week - Turning into quite a good donut flavor, and I’m not usually a donut fan. No more play doh, still getting a touch of cinnamon and sugar, but overall it is pretty close to an old fashioned cake donut.
2 weeks - Really awesome. I think I could probably vape this by itself but it’d be great with some fruit, cream, coffee, anything donut related.
3 weeks - Same. This is everything I wanted glazed donut to be.
1 month - Very nice donut flavor. Slightly spicy, sweet, cakey, no playdoh.

Orange | 3 stars | 6.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - A little more scratchy and less sweet than the Clementine. A bit of bitterness like orange rind. Otherwise, very orangey.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Pretty much the same.
2 weeks - Really nice orange flavor. Not bitey or harsh.
3 weeks - Same. I’m not a huge fan of orange, but this one is decent.
1 month - For an orange, not bad. I still prefer the clementine because it is a little sweeter and less harsh to me.

Peach | 3 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Tastes a lot like Flavorah’s peach. It is a little sticky syrupy, a little bit of a bite, and super peachy. I like it.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Peachy.
2 weeks - all of the peaches, peaches for me. All of the peaches, peaches for free. Getting a hint of a plastic taste now. More candy than natural.
3 weeks - Same. Not really plastic, but more like a gummy.
1 month - Definitely more gummy flavored and less intense than it started off as. Still a decent peach, but I think there are better peaches out there.

Peach (Real) | 2 stars | 3.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Slight peach flavor but mostly getting a leafy earthy flavor. Almost tastes like a peach black tea.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same, a little more peachy, but also a little soapy. Still earthy and leafy.
2 weeks - same.
3 weeks - Same. Soapy. Still taste like peach but I like the other one better.
5 weeks - Same. I’m not a fan. Earthy and soapy.

Peanut Butter Cup | 3 stars | 7.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Nutty, not as sweet as I would think, a little chalky, I’m guessing from the chocolate. Chocolate flavor is not very rich. Think it could use a boost. Not as tootsie as I was afraid it’d be.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Still mostly PB, still slightly chalky. Think some inawera milk chocolate and TPA PB would push it over the edge into greatness. Not a bad flavor so far.
2 weeks - More nutty. No chalkiness. Chocolate still needs help.
3 weeks - Still doesn’t really taste like a PB cup to me. Peanut butter, meh, chocolate not so much.
5 weeks - Not the greatest chocolate or peanut butter, but not the worst either. Neither flavor is very pronounced to me, but neither are extremely offensive either. This would be an okay base flavor but would definitely need some boosting.

Pear | 4 stars | 6.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Light, fresh, juicy. Very nice flavor. Ever so slightly floral. Good pear vibe. I like.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Very good.
2 weeks - Same. Juicy, a little leafy, fresh and fruity.
3 weeks - Same. Really great juicy, fresh, mild fruit taste. Not overpoweringly sweet.
5 weeks - Up there with Fuji (FA) and Cactus for a flavor that would work really well to provide a realistic, juiciness to other fruit flavors. A little mild to be used on its own, but would be an excellent additive and wouldn’t make things overly sweet.

Pecan | 2 stars | 3.0% | 1.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
Snv - Nice nuttiness on the inhale, a little bitter, slightly soapy on the exhale.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Gotten a little funky. A little musty with an almost rancid oil flavor. Smokey plastic soy sauce? I don’t know. Weird.
2 weeks - Funk has kinda gone away. No idea what that was about. It’s still a little musty. Nutty. Not sure. Mixed nuts is better.
3 weeks - Still musty. Nutty. Reminds me of the mushroomy taste of the Flavorah pecan pie or whatever it is.
5 weeks - Not as bad as the Flavorah, but still getting a weird mushroom smoke flavor. Might be good for that purpose?

Peppermint | 4 stars | 4.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Tastes like a starlight peppermint or a candy cane. For some reason, this flavor makes me absurdly happy. It tastes like Christmas.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Christmas candy cane. Happy in a bottle. Could SF vape this. It’s not overpoweringly minty and it’s sweet like the candy. If I were wanting straight peppermint flavor/oil this might not work as well, but I like it a lot just the way it is.
2 weeks - Yummy.
3 weeks - Same. Like a candy cane.
5 weeks - Same. Very good peppermint candy cane flavor. Not as strong as something like mint gum. A little softer and sweeter.

Pie Crust | 4 stars | 5.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Where TPA is more of a plain pastry crust that would work for a fruit pie or a pot pie, this is more geared toward a dessert pie crust. Has a sweet powdered sugar vibe over a buttery pastry.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - SnV assessment holds. This is more of a sugar dusted crust than plain pastry. Good for that purpose though.
2 weeks - Same. Sweet crust/dough flavor. Very nice.
3 weeks - Same. Sweet, buttery, crusty.
6 weeks - Same.

Pineapple | 3 stars | 8.0% | 6.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Pineapple vibe and scent for sure, but kind of a waxy taste to it as well. Not digging it so much right now.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - waxy flavor is gone now and it tastes kind of like the pineapple in the pineapple ice cream we used to get in Hawaii at the dole factory. It’s not quite a fresh, just cut pineapple. More of a dessert pineapple but not a canned pineapple in syrup either. It’s good, I really like it. The scent is on point.
2 weeks - Nice. A little juicier than it was before.
3 weeks - Same. Decent flavor. Not super strong in the pineapple realm but good anyway.
6 weeks - Same. Not the strongest pineapple ever. Not bad, but not fantastic.

Pineapple (Real) | 1 star | No | Just Don’t
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - This has a pineapple scent and flavor but also a really bad off flavor. It’s almost like rotten fruit or sewage. It’s pretty awful.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Man I was really hoping the rotten flavor in this would be gone by now but no such luck. Gag. It’s okay on the inhale but on the exhale there is something god awful about it.
2 weeks - Maybe getting better? Not AS gag worthy.
3 weeks - No. Not better. It’s like a dead animal or something. This is disgusting, who approved of this flavor? How did it pass inspection? I keep thinking it’s gotta be in my head and maybe I’m just not tasting it right, but no. Just no.
6 weeks - Not quite as bad maybe, and I get the pineapple vibe in there, but I will never use this flavor.

Plum | 4 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Something alluring about this. Almost a creamy note. Light fruit, subtle, slightly sweet. Very nice at the moment.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Almost a creamy rather than a bright and juicy fruit taste. Still very subtle.
2 weeks - Same. Reminds me of the Flavorah Guanabana a little bit.
3 weeks - Same.
6 weeks - This flavor is really lovely. Great addition to a stash for anyone who likes the smooth, sweeter flavors.

Pomegranate | 3 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Another highly intriguing flavor. Slightly floral, very bitter. Not very sweet at all.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - same. It’s a little tart and bitter like a dragon fruit but not as earthy. This would probably be really good with a raspberry flavor to help up the tart factor without bringing too much dirt too the mix.
2 weeks - Same. A little light on actual flavor, more something I’d use as an enhancer.
3 weeks - Same. Would make a great “tart” agent. Not a strong flavor otherwise.
6 weeks - Good. Still rather weak, but a nice flavor nonetheless.

Pomegranate (Real) | 3 stars | 6.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Same bitterness and basic flavor as the other Pom, but sweeter and juicier.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Has gotten slightly more earthy and still reminds me of a dragonfruit or rhubarb only brighter, sweeter, and juicier.
2 weeks - Same. A little more tame maybe.
3 weeks - Same. I think the two poms together would be just about perfect.
6 weeks - Good. I stick with previous, that the two together would be the best combo.

Rainbow Candy | 4 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
SnV - Does not taste like skittles, it tastes like lychee. Maybe some vague juicy candy back note somewhere in there, but mostly lychee. I kinda like it.
2 weeks - Same. I never would guess candy for this. It has a musky kind of back note. Juicy, fruity, kind of floral maybe. It’s different.
3 weeks - Same. It has kind of the earthy muskiness of a lychee or Cap passionfruit. Interesting and tasty, but if I were looking for skittles this is way off the mark.
6 weeks - Same. There’s more of a gummy or candy vibe coming through now.

Raspberry | 4 stars | 6.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Very nice. Reminds me a bit of Inawera Raspberry. Less candy-like, more tart and earthy. Very nice. Would work very well with the other raz flavorings for a more realistic raspberry.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Tart and slightly earthy. Very nice.
2 weeks - Same. Great addition to the raspberry family. More like a pie filling than a candy or syrup.
3 weeks - This is not as intense or earthy as Inawera raspberry, but in the same vein. Very nice.
6 weeks - Same. Tart and earthy like a raspberry but not super intense.


#49

Real Honey | 2 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Not bad. Floral honey flavor, not sticky sweet. No offensive weird notes or scents.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Bout the same as SnV. Maybe a slight plasticy honey bee kind of flavor coming out now.
2 weeks - same. Floral honey. Makes me think of honeysuckle but not quite as sweet or syrupy.
3 weeks - Still a bit of a plastic flavor. Kind of like honey bee but less bitter. Honeybee fans would probably enjoy this. It’s not really my thing though. I think I’ll stick with fake honey.
6 weeks - Same. It’s like honeybee but not quite as offensive. It’s not bad, but it’s not great IMO either.

Real Watermelon | 2 stars | 7.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Light, slightly floral. Not super sweet. Slight melon flavor, fresh and a little juicy.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same.
2 weeks - Gotten a little bland. Hopefully it’ll perk up.
3 weeks - Semi sweet, juicy, still slightly floral, still slight on the melon. Would make a good juicy melon enhancer for an otherwise candy melon or something like Flavorah Wild Melon.
6 weeks - hasn’t changed much. Still very little melon flavor, mostly a juicy melon essence.

Red Apple | 3 stars | 4.0% | 2.5%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Not super juicy, slightly floral, fresh, not strong apple flavor. A little earthy and bitter. Authentic but a little light on flavor.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Can’t get a real strong line on this one.
2 weeks - A little more of an apple flavor coming through. Still floral and slightly earthy. Not an “in your face” kind of apple but would probably lend a good “realistic” support to other apples.
3 weeks - Same. Slightly sweeter and less floral.
6 weeks - Still the same. Maybe a little lessened.

Ripe Strawberry | 4 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - This isn’t exactly strawberry but it is fantastic. It’s a strawberry blossom, floral. Sweet and fresh. I like it muchly.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Not like ripe strawberry but it is good.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - More like a strawberry taffy now. A little waxy tasting. Still slightly floral. It’s nice.
6 weeks - Same. This would make a great strawberry taffy flavor, but not really realistic.

Root Beer | 5 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Nice root beer or maybe closer to sarsaparilla flavor and some fizzy feeling. Very good.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - This is really good. I could see vaping this solo.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - Has lost a little intensity and fizziness. Still very good.
6 weeks - about the same. Not quite as intense as it was, but still a really great flavor. Maybe better than LB. Or maybe I just really like root beer flavored vape.

Rum | 5 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Alcohol vibe but doesn’t really have a ton of actual flavor. Slightly sweet. I could see some good uses for this. Rewicked Kylin with Hemp.
1 week - Good for what it is. Tastes a little more like a rum now. I like it.
2 weeks - Same. Very nice alcohol flavor. I can see this being very useful.
3 weeks - Same. Still on the sweeter side of a rum. Would probably make an excellent coconut rum.
6 weeks - Really great rum flavor. I like this one a lot.

Spearmint | 5 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Very potent spearmint flavor. Tastes like gum. Fresh and chilly.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Tastes like spearmint.
2 weeks - Wrigley’s.
3 weeks - Same.
6 weeks - Same. I’d say it’s hard to screw up spearmint, but I’d also think it’s hard to screw up cinnamon… So this flavor is a great spearmint. Fresh and cold but a little soft, which I like.

Strawberry | 3 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Not very strawberry. A little floral and tastes like bubble gum.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. A little more strawberry flavor now.
2 weeks - Same. Tastes like strawberry bubble gum.
3 weeks - Same. A little plastic, a little like a strawberry gum that’s been chewed for a bit.
6 weeks - same. More like gum than real strawberry, Decent enough for that purpose.

Subtle Cinnamon | 1 star | 0.0% | 1.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Incense or soap. Very little cinnamon flavor.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Gross. Soap and incense still.
2 weeks - There MIGHT be some sort of cinnamon in there somewhere but its mostly just gross.
3 weeks - Same. A little more cinnamon than before but still very soapy.
6 weeks - More like cinnamon, but still tastes like a Christmas incense or soap.

Sweet Brown | 5 stars | 5.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Interesting. Like brown sugar I guess. Sweet, a little bit of a sharp sticky throat hit, same almost salty soy sauce kinda flavor I get with RY4 Double. I like it. Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Toasty sweetness.
2 weeks - Same. Brown sugar. Slightly toasted.
3 weeks - Good brown sugar taste.
6 weeks - Same as before. A very brown flavor, sweet, and a little toasty.

Sweet Strawberry | 3 stars | 6.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Not the most in your face strawberry. Much like Cap Sweet. It’s sweet but also has that floral hint like the other strawberries.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - Same again. Hard to know how else to describe this besides sweet, a little bit floral, a little bit strawberry.
6 weeks - Um, still the same. Guess this flavor has staying power for what it is.

Sweet Tea | 4 stars | 4.5% | 2.5%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Interesting. Very sweet, tea undertones. One of the better “black” teas I’ve tried.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - A little earthy, kinda getting the tea, very sweet.
2 weeks - Not terrible. I think I can work with this.
3 weeks - Not really sure. A drop on the tongue tastes like tea, but the vape is a little off. Might be the % is too high.
6 weeks - Same. Not exactly a tea, but still something I’m interested to try working with. It’s got that leafy, almost bitter tea note, but also something else I can’t quite identify.

Sweet Tobacco | 2 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Really nice, slight sweetness, leafiness, slightly bitter, some anise notes maybe.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Again, sweet, leafy, a little cactus maybe. Same basically. Maybe slightly soapy.
2 weeks - More soapy. Bummer. Like bubble bath or something.
3 weeks - Still leafy, still soapy.
6 weeks - Soapy has gone away. Not terrible, but not my favorite tobacco flavor in the world.

Sweet Watermelon | 4 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Very fresh and juicy. Amazing smell. Again, slightly floral. Melony, but more rindy than sweet flesh or candy.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same.
2 weeks - Pretty much the same.
3 weeks - Same. I like this.
6 weeks - Slightly more “watery” watermelon with more rind than sweetness. I think it’d work great in combination with a sweeter watermelon to bring about something a little more realistic tasting. It is sweet in its own way but its not candy-like. I enjoy it and I think I’ll like playing around with it to see what I can turn it in to.

Tennessee Tobacco | 4 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Leafy and sweet. Not super strong. Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - pretty much nothing has changed. Maybe gotten even less distinguishable.
2 weeks - Same. Slightly sweet, maybe a tad leafy. Otherwise, nothing.
3 weeks - A little more distinguishable. A little more leafy and smokey.
6 weeks - Sweet, slightly leafy, and slightly smokey. A little bit of nuttiness in the background maybe.

Tiramisu | 3 stars | 5.0% | 2.0%

Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Getting a chalky chocolate flavor, a little sweetness and creaminess. No coffee to speak of.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Still the chalky chocolate. Still not a lot of a coffee flavor.
2 weeks - Same. Powdered chocolate. A little creamy and maybe some liqueur. Slightly sweet.
3 weeks - Mostly the same. Much sweeter. Chocolate is a little less chalky. Still not much else.
6 weeks - Same. No coffee to speak of, slightly sweet, a little chocolate.

Toffee | 4 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - The sticky sweet throat hit, bit of caramel brown kind of flavor, a little “salty”, and also a tiny bit of sour butter type flavor, possibly BA but not as strong as I’ve had before.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - This has gotten weird, but not necessarily bad. I can’t decide yet. The sour butter has turned into a smoked flavor. It’s like a sweet hickory smoked caramel almost.
2 weeks - So strange. It is caramel toffee but it seriously has a (hickory I think) smoked flavor.
3 weeks - Still very caramel toffee and still a little bit of a hickory smoked flavor.
6 weeks - I’m a little disappointed that the hickory smoked flavor has pretty much disappeared. It’s kind of a dark caramel now, which is what toffee is I guess. Overall, not bad.

Tootie Frootie | 5 stars | 5.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - I thought that maybe this was like a fruit punch, but I’m guessing it’s actually fruit loops. I am getting a fruity, grainy, frosted kind of vibe here. It’s actually quite good.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Now that I know this is Fruit Loops, it’s basically all I can taste and it tastes pretty much like what I remember dry fruit loops tasting like. I know people complain about fruit loops flavors being too lemony and this one has a lemon note to it, but it doesn’t taste like pledge at all to me. Like the Honey Crisp, this one is pretty spot on.
2 weeks - Nummy. I could definitely dig vaping the heck outta this.
3 weeks - Same. Fantastic fruity loopy flavor.
6 weeks - Still pretty spot on from what I remember dry fruit loops tasting like. The heavy grain flavor is there, the sugary frosted flavor, and a light lemon in the way back that is now almost indistinguishable.

Turkish Tobacco | 4 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Very leafy, a little floral, sweet, very nice.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Nice.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - Same.
6 weeks - Still very leafy and floral, slightly sweet. If you like your tobacco on the brighter, more perfume side, this would be a good addition to your stash. Reminds me a bit of Flavorah Virginia. Those that don’t like strong perfume/floral type flavors would probably NOT like this flavor. I’m a fan.

Vanilla | 3 stars | 4.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Very mild, slightly sweet, a little vanilla and creamy in the background.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - nice vanilla flavor but getting a chemical or sunscreen note. Like if you tasted vanilla extract straight from the bottle.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - Vanilla extract pretty much. Could be useful, maybe lower %.
6 weeks - The extract flavor died down and this is a pretty nice vanilla now. I hate that I didn’t get 4 or 5 week notes, but either way, needs a long steep.

Vanilla (Natural) | 2 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Not too shabby. Definitely vanilla, a little creamy. Vanilla flowers, sweet. Very good flavor.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Same. Very light and delicate kind of vanilla. Not strong or heavy.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - Still a little floral but sweeter.
6 weeks - Still kind of floral. Not bad, but not my favorite vanilla flavor.

Vanilla Cupcake | 3 stars | 6.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - This is interesting. Not exactly what I think of when I think cupcake, but definitely vanilla and a little cakey. Will withhold judgement for now.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Pretty much the same. Not a dense vanilla cake with frosting, more of a light cake vibe. Nice, just not super strong.
2 weeks - Same.
3 weeks - Same. Sweet; more like a white cake.
6 weeks - More of the vanilla coming through with the cake. Nice.

Vanilla Custard | 2 stars | 4.0% | 2.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Little burned and BA tasting. Also a little chalk flavored. Thick and vanilla flavored though. Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Still similar to SnV but surprisingly not wholly off-putting. It still tastes a little burned and sour, but it’s pretty thick and vanilla-y also. The chalk has pretty much vanished.
2 weeks - I’m impressed with how decent this tastes. No more chalk, more thick and vanilla.
3 weeks - Same. Maybe slightly smoky or burned still. Not awful though.
6 weeks - Pretty much the same. Kind of an ashy/burned flavor on top of the custard. Not awful, but not great either.

Vanilla Swirl | 3 stars | 4.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Nice creamy vanilla, no BA surprisingly. I like it.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - also a lighter vanilla and maybe my favorite vanilla flavor of the lot.
2 weeks - Same. Gotten a tad heavier and more creamy. I’d say vanilla natural is a little lighter.
3 weeks - About the same. Gotten a little sharper.
6 weeks - About the same. Heavy, vanilla, sticky sweet throat hit. Slightly creamy.

Whiskey | 5 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Sweet, whiskey flavor, less musty and oaky than the bourbon.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Much more mild alcohol flavor than the Bourbon. Slightly oaky, nice whiskey vibe. Of the two, I could see myself using this one more frequently than the other simply because it would be more versatile.
2 weeks - Same. Still the oaky whiskey flavor without the heavy mustiness of the bourbon. Very nice.
3 weeks - Same. Very good whiskey flavor without being overpowering.
6 weeks - Same.

White Chocolate | 5 stars | 5.0% | 3.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Definitely sweet, slightly creamy, not quite white chocolate as I’d imagined it, but not bad either.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - Ya know, white chocolate is one of those “flavors” that’s got as much to do with the mouthfeel as it does with the flavor. This is a lot like a slightly heavier, creamier feeling version of vanilla swirl, but I definitely get that hint of the chocolate in a Hershey’s cookies and cream bar, especially on the exhale and aftertaste. I like.
2 weeks - Same. Not exactly like eating a piece of white chocolate but close enough that I think it could work in recipes very nicely.
3 weeks - Really enjoying this flavor. It’s pretty creamy, semi sweet, a little bit of a bakery note going on in the background, and smells like white chocolate. I’m sold.
6 weeks - Very good flavor. Sweet, a little vanilla, creamy. I like it.

White Gummy | 4 stars | 5.0% | 4.0%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Pineapple gummy? Sticky gummy flavor with a bit of a chem/synthetic sweetness in the background.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - This has to be a pineapple gummy. In fact, I’d hazard that this is probably a better pineapple flavor than either of the pineapples. It’s nice. Synth taste is pretty much gone and it just tastes like a pineapple candy.
2 weeks - Very yummy. Juicy pineapple and a bit of a gummy background. They nailed this one IMO.
3 weeks - Same. A little bit of the synthetic taste is back, but it is a good flavor nonetheless.
6 weeks - Same. Nice.

Yellow Cake | 4 stars | 5% | 3%
Tested at 5%, 40/60 PG/VG, no nic.
Kylin RTA - 0.25ohm dual coil SS; VT133 - TC
SnV - Sweet, slight cakiness but not much. A little bit of a weird chemical note.
Rewicked Kylin with Hemp
1 week - This has changed significantly. Flavor is a lot stronger and it tastes more like a cake. Whatever that chem note was has changed to more of a cardboard kind of flavor. Now it tastes like a cake from an off-brand boxed mix. Not fantastic but not bad. Heavy vanilla flavor.
2 weeks - About the same as 1 week. Sticky sweet throat hit and a little drying. Very vanilla.
3 weeks - Same. Good.
6 weeks - Same. Would probably work as a good replacement for FW Yellow Cake.

First i want to thank @JoJo for the fantastic work and effort on this review series for NicVape. !!:+1:

For what it is worth, I want to alert all NET tobacco head types out there that NicVape has far and away the most realistic of all the synth tobacco flavors. I have tried a smatering of Hansen, FA and a few others, but no way they even begin to approach the quality of NicVape, who ships in glass and obviously knows what they are doing with tobacco flavors.

Of course I am a full NET, macerate and extract your own type, and vape very little to no synth becasue I have a great DIY thing going in my kitchen, so why vape the synth when you have the real thing? BUT, you might be interested to know that you can get remarkably close to certain (not all!) leaf NET flavor profiles using their concentrates. I will post a few of these recipes from time to time in the ELR database. I have one in there now that is a very close flavor profile ‘taste-alike’ to a real NET made from Fronto Cigar Leaf. I have to admit, I was rather blown away when I A/B’ed two drippers, one with the NicVape Mix and one with real NET pure leaf extraction from Fronto leaf obtained from leafsonlydotcom.

Also, want to mention that certain NicVape tobacco concentrates, one they call Sweet Tobacco. although @JoJo did not care for it, has great use to add sweet aromatic top notes back to certain NET extractions. This returns particular NETs back to their original English Pipe Shop flavor. For Example I added 1% (it doesn’t’ take much) to a extraction of Haunted Bookshop, and got a very pleasent result. Of course, to the real NET snob this ‘adding back of toppings’ is considered a no-no, but what the hell, it’s all about experimentation, and sometimes you are pleasantly surprised.

So, bottom line: I think highly of the NicVapes tobacco line, … also used a lot of their lab trace nicotine, and consider it one of the best and a very good value, particularly very low shipping cost. If you are one of those lurking ‘NET curious types’ you can PM me for details on how to get a sample or two from me of some real NETs. Then you can do your own A/B tests and experiments!

:grinning:

It is highly likely using it as a SF at 5% was the problem for me and the Sweet Tobacco. I’ll have to check out that recipe. I can see how at lower % it would make a good additive. It was very leafy and aromatic, but it got to be pretty soapy. Again, probably because it was way too high for that flavor. I’ll likely update my rating of it after I’ve used it more.

On that note, I can see the advantages for doing multiple %s when you SF—a high, med, and low—but I’m doing good just to get the one done. Kudos to anyone who manages to do three at a time.

Awesome notes Jojo! Thank you for these!
