I am creating this thread in an attempt to help nail down for myself and others, exactly what flavor muting is like.
For me, sometimes a flavor will come off as really good tasting but then within the hour, sometimes even close to a quarter of that, the flavor will be gone completely in taste.
Other times when I cannot get any flavor from something, it is another sign of muting; one that is a step higher than simply using a flavor at slightly too high, but WAY too high.
Another thing I have noticed, is that if a flavor comes off as harsh, it is most likely being used at too high a %. This is not always the case however, as some flavors are just harsh to some people's palates (an example of this is Yellow Peach CAP; I love this flavor and have used all sorts of %'s, but GOD ALMIGHTY is it harsh!).
What are other symptoms of flavor muting or using a flavor at too high a %?
