Time for some first impressions as I move forward with testing on many of the Super Concentrates from Real Flavors that I have ordered recently. Most of you that are regulars here already know of my struggles with PG sensitivity so I will share how I mixed these.
I picked 3 of the Beta Lab flavors to try first. I did them all as follows.
I mixed each flavor in 15ml bottles at 2%, 2.5% and 3% with 1.5mg VG/Nicotine and the rest is 100% VG. I did not breath these as you would normally do. What I did was take the top lose 1 time per day just to let any fumes, gasses or whatever out and fresh air in. I did it this way because I remembered in a thread when someone mentioned flavor fade Walt replied with do not breath the flavors for long periods of time during the steeping process.
On day 1 I did the finger test for flavor
At 48hrs I did the first test actually vaping them using a Chalice 3 atty with the squonk pin plugged up so it could be used as a dripper.
At Day 7 I tested again
In this picture you can see the squonk pin with a round toothpick drove in tight to prevent leaking
The build is 26g 316L 6 wraps on 3mm bit spaced coil.
I used this on my VT133 and this is a shot of the settings
In this shot you can see just how tiny this atty is on top of the VT133
This set up delivers TONS of flavor without the giant super dense clouds that most drippers deliver. For those of you that are familiar with the Kayfun V5 after a very easy modification to the Chalice 3 (Thanks @Rob62 for the tip on this mod) the draw is almost identical to the Kayfun V5
Now that you know I am testing at 100% VG and the device I am using for initial tasting here are my thoughts
Melon Medley (SC BETA) (Real Flavors) at 2%
At 48 hrs steep this is the absolute best Melon flavor I have ever tried. But it had a kind of warm heavy throat hit I did not like at all.
At Day 7 it mellowed out nice and is honestly the best Melon flavor I have ever tried. I must add that I am not much on Melon flavor anything and this was actually ordered for my wife and son not me. That said I will add I can see keeping a bottle of this around for myself as well.
Butterfinger (SC BETA) (Real Flavors) 2%
At 48 hrs WOW very strong super sweet nutty center of a Butterfinger but o so harsh ,cough choke and gang a little.
Day 7 This has mellowed out and lost some flavor as well so I went to the 2.5% and then to the 3% and at 3% I found one of the all time best vapes I have ever had. The chocolate is way in the background but there and they NAILED the flavor of the center of a Butterfinger candy bar. @Walt_RealFlavors I sure do hope this one becomes a keeper and makes it's way into the normal line up.
Deep Fried Oreo (SC BETA) (Real Flavors)
48 Hrs had very similar results as above with the warm harsh feeling and the flavor was potent but straight up Oreo cookies
Day 7 The harshness has gone away and the fried aspect has started making it's way in. At 2% the flavor has faded some but remember I am using 100%VG so just like the Butterfinger above I kind of expected that in this one as well. Did I mention this stuff is awesome also.
So you may wonder what I am vaping on right now as I type this.
On the right VT133 Kayfun V5 clone with Deep Fried Oreo
On the left VT133 Kayfun V5 clone with Butterfinger
My preferred single flavor mix as of right now at the 1 week mark
Melon Medley 2%
Deep fried Oreo 3%
Your results may vary widely from mine because once again my mixing is all at 100% VG.
I am going to hold off on adding any notes to the flavor data base until I reach the 1 month mark on these to see how they develop.
