I’ve had issues before with flavouts tasting burnt at" high" wattages, even as an MTL vaper , which means that my wattage doesn’t go that high!
But here’s an odd thing. I recently purchased Medicine Flowere’s Sauvignon Blanc, and it is so damned gorgeous , i persisted and persisted with trying to get round the burnt taste issue, in a way that I’ve never persisted before.
My favourite kit these days is Nautilus X. I’m really really impressed with these “U-tech” coils, and have even been tempted to dip a bit more than a tentative toe toe into sub-ohm water, since Aspire brought out the Pock-Ex AIO- which uses same coils at 0.6 ohm! But that’s beside the point.
The point is in my flavour notes:
Woot!. This smells just like Virgin Vapor’s old flavour “In Vino Veritas” , as I recall it. I had hoped this would turn out to be the case. I orderered a sample of that years ago, and straightway decided to order some, only to find they’d withdrawn it from their range! I think I might have stumbled on the reason. Damn.
First tried it in a Nautilus X tank, 1.8 Ohms at 12 watts. And it tasted burnt. Ugh. Turned down the wattage and the flavour improved, but had to go too low for that tamk to perform very well Eventually switched to using a Kanger EMOW , with 1’5 ohm dual coil. the matching 1600 mAh VV pen, et voila! The flavour really shines on that device, all the way up to maximum voltage (4.8) So…lack of heat stability, I guess . But I dunno why it burns on one device and not the other. I checked Ohm’s law and the wattage on that kit goes well within the wattage range on the Nautie X, but no burning! So is it really an issue with those coils rather than wattage?
Is it? I’m now intersted to learn what coils/ wattages others have tried with this flavour? and with what results?
And what about other flavours that are susceptible to burning? did others find that a change of kit w/o change of wattage fixed the problem?
[EDIT: : PS. I seem to have aciddntally deleted my flavourt notes whilst copying! . Ah, well, I’ll copy back and reconstiture the bits I left oput (I do recall them, thankfully)
