I hate to say it, but I tried the Nomz - Watermelon (SC), and my results were less than promising. I’d normally wait until @SessionDrummer wrote his reviews before posting something myself, but as it’s just one flavor, I don’t think he’d mind.
Nomz - Watermelon (SC)
Tested at 2% off the shake, 24h, and 48h after mixing.
It’s a watermelon, kind of. At 2%, this was fleshy, but not really wet as a melon of any kind should be. Right off the bat, I couldn’t say that this was definitely a watermelon flavor, but it DID have some watermelon floating around in there. This flavor is artificial, but also natural tasting, and is most likely composed of several melon-ish compounds, one of which could be watermelon, possibly. Can I see myself using this? No. And I unfortunately bought a 30ml. Maybe one day someone will post a good recipe with this, but I personally don’t like the flavor enough to put myself through the process. This kind of smells like TPA Watermelon Candy, but definitely doesn’t taste like it. Will let it steep and then rate it when I know ALL the facts. May need to go higher than 2% with this.
24h - same, kind of harsh. I feel like this is more of a honeydew flavor than a watermelon. Think watermelon flesh with a honeydew taste. Super-effing-weird. Added 0.5% Nomz Cucumber (SC) to try and help with the wetness/harshness.
48h - flavor more pronounced, but still not a watermelon. Well, MAYBE a really unripe watermelon. Or maybe just the pink or white parts near the rind? I’m SUPER confused by this flavor. Let’s see if aging more helps. A bit less harsh than yesterday, but I think that’s because of the cucumber.
If I had to use this, I’d probably mix it with FLV - Wild Melon and JF - Ultimate Watermelon. Maybe they would complement each other. Other possibilities are WF - Hami Melon, and possibly TPA - Honeydew if you’re trying to make a honeydew or wild melon mix. I really don’t see this working in a “watermelon” mix, but this MAY have a place in other melon mixes.
Will update if any further changes occur.
