Nicotine Rivers new line of concentrates. 14 of their flavors listed here. Will add more as I acquire!
All concentrates mixed at 4% at 50/50 pg/vg. Tested on a Drop with dual coil Ni80 .3 ohms at 55 watts.
Will be updating as flavors steep.
Vanilla Milk Shake
“Creamy Milk and flavorful Vanilla work in perfect harmony bringing your tastebuds an experience that’s nothing short of spectacular.”
Shake - Light, creamy, milky, vanilla-y. This one is good. Definitely a vanilla milk shake almost spot on. Would be great for any ice cream or shake recipe. The milky aspect would play well with cereal. Basically any dessert recipe, this is gonna be good. Definitely could solo this one! I’m sure a good steep will make this really great.
1 week - Less milk shakey. More like a vanilla bean ice cream. It’s a lot thicker. More heavy. Heavy on that vanilla bean. Not sure I’d solo this one at this point. Still would be great in anything you need ice cream or milky creaminess for.
Blue Raspberry Taffy
“A tasty candy that is sure to satisfy! Blue Raspberry with a delicious twist!”
Shake - This is straight up blue raspberry taffy. Amazing blue raspberry flavor with a light candy, definitely taffy feel and taste. Where other companies have failed with blue raspberry, Nicotine River shines here. Definitely can solo, definitely can shake and vape.
1 week - Flavor hasn’t changed much. Still a blue raspberry taffy. Flavor has faded slightly. Still good!
“Fluffy muffin notes with a sweet and smooth Lemon background. One of a kind is an understatement!”
Shake - Hmm…Not sure I agree with that above statement. No lemon detected. Is that muffin? A bit. Very slightly. Almost tastes waffles with syrup like. It’s not bad. Just not lemon muffin. Maybe a steep will help. Definitely has it’s applications, so not a bad flavor by any means.
1 week - Pretty much the same flavor but extremely faded to hardly any taste. Not sure I could find much use for this one at this point. A bit disappointing.
“Reminiscent of a fruity rings cereal with a strong fruity follow through! Unique from start to finish and full of flavor!”
Shake - Definitely not a fruit rings cereal. It’s fruity, but not cereal fruity. Just a mix of fruits. Slightly creamy, and I mean slightly. A bit floral. Almost soapy. But not terrible on the soapy floral note. Maybe use lower. Not a bad flavor, definitely would have uses. I personally wouldn’t solo, but it definitely could be. Could be shake and vaped as well, but maybe a steep will drop those off notes.
1 week - Oh jeez. I can’t do this one. Those floral notes only got stronger. Tastes like vaping a shampoo or a body wash. You could maybe use this one at a low percentage (0.5 - 2) in a recipe that you want floral notes. At this point though, I don’t think any recipes I will make could use this one.
“Juicy and refreshing Watermelon flavor. Well rounded and an absolute must have!”
Shake - Juicy? Yes. Refreshing? Yes. Absolute must have? If you like watermelon, than absolutely! Wow. This is good. Definitely artificial. Reminds me of a popular watermelon beverage. If you like watermelon, don’t hesitate to pick this up. Solo? 100%. Shake and vape? Absolutely.
1 week - Less artificial. More realistic. You get the whole watermelon, rind and all. Not as much flavor either. I’m a bit disappointed with this one. I loved it off the shake, but now I don’t think I’d solo this one. For sure would be great in a watermelon, melon mix, or fruit mix.
“A delicious Blue Raspberry with light candy notes!”
Shake - My god. Nicotine River, you have outdone yourselves. Amazing blue raspberry right here. Exactly what you would expect from a blue raspberry flavor. Nothing short of perfect in my eyes. I don’t get much of the candy aspect, but I could care less because this is bangin’. You are gonna want to solo this one. It’s that good. Mix with blue raspberry taffy for more candy. Mix with fruits or drink recipes to give them a blue raspberry twist. Real shake and vape right here guys.
1 week - Pretty much the same flavor, but a bit faded. Still good!
“Refreshing Honeydew is truly something else!”
Shake - Refreshing honeydew this surely is. It is sweet and delicious. A cross between real honeydew and artificial honeydew flavor. Will be great in your melon and fruit mixes and can absolutely be solo mixed, I love this flavor. I really love this flavor. If you like honeydew, you will too.
1 week - This one has been my favorite out of all the flavors tested here. Basically the same as it was off the shake, if a bit slightly more realistic. Really diggin’ this flavor.
“Sour and sweet Mangoes mixed with delicious fruits! The perfect combo for any fruit lover!”
Shake - Not too sour, not too sweet. I’m getting ripe mangoes here. Slight citrus notes. Even slighter floral notes. This is a good mango guys. If you like mango, go ahead and solo this one. I’m not a huge mango fan, but I could solo this. Alright shake and vape, maybe the steep will drop those floral notes.
1 week - Same flavor here. The slight floral notes are still present. Maybe a lower percentage to get rid of those. I think the citrus notes are completely lost.
“A sweet fluffy Doughnut with a glistening glaze that is a dessert lovers dream!”
Shake - Slightly grainy. Not really getting much of a fried donut taste, but definitely some sort of baked good. Not much in the way of glaze either. Will definitely add layer to your donuts or other baked goods recipes. Don’t think this would make a good solo. Maybe a steep will make this more donut like.
1 week - Less to no grain here. It’s sweet, I think that glaze has come out a bit more now. Tastes like a very light glazed baked good. Still no doughnut flavor. Still think it would make a good addition to baked goods or doughnut recipes.
"“The new kid in town.” A delicious blend of Kiwi’s, Strawberries, and hints of other fruits! Synonymous with perfection, Kigola is a blend that will have you craving more! Perfect by itself and with other concentrates this all day flavor is a must have in your arsenal. "
Shake - This is definitely a strawberry kiwi, no doubt. More strawberry than kiwi. Tastes like a candy or a drink, so definitely artificial. But very good. Slight floral notes. I would solo this one. Shake and vape? Hell yeah.
1 week - Not much has changed here at all. Same as I got off the shake.
“Just what you’ve been looking for. This unique mixture of fruits is superb for any blend your taste buds desire. Especially great with nuts and creams, Kilanca will leave you with a smile.”
Shake - The picture on the bottle shows a fruit bowl. That is what this is. A delicious bowl of mixed fruits. You took a piece of every fruit on your fork and ate it in one bite. Yum. More heavy on the berries here, but that’s not bad. Delicious. Solo? Yup. Shake and vape? Yup.
1 week - No changes. Still the same here with this one as well. Fresh delicious fruit bowl!
“Crunchy, yet delectable Cookie Snaps! Truly a desserty paradise!”
Shake - Not much cookie, but it’s here. Definitely bakery notes I’m getting. It’s heavy. Like a molasses cookie. Not as strong though. Am I tasting caramel? I believe so. Should add a nice touch to your cookies and baked goods. I think a steep will bring out that cookie more. I like this one. Solo? Probably not. But maybe for you!
1 week - That cookie has showed its face! But slightly. More biscuit like. Less heavy on that caramel and molasses. A bit faded I must say, but I think it would be a nice addition to cookies and crusts here.
“A beautiful blend of Melons that will leave your taste buds reminiscing of a relaxing summer day! Great alone and with other fruity blends!”
Shake - I like melon vapes. Take that back. I LOVE melon vapes. And if you do too, look no further. This is the perfect mix of melons right here. Honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon, they are all there. And they blend together so well. It’s hard to pick one melon out of the mix, yet easy to distinguish at the same time. Sweet, juicy, yum. Solo? Yes, yes, and more yes. Shake and vape? Absolutely.
1 week - Same flavor here. Nothing has changed except it is a bit lighter. Still very delicious.
“A unique blend of tasty Marshmallows and other dessert flavors. Great as a base for desserts or a background! A tremendous flavor to build on with fruits, cereals, and more!”
Shake - Woah. Nicotine River, what have you done here? This made my tastebuds go bonkers. This stuff is good. Really good. It’s thick and creamy, a bit custardy, and slightly toasty. You can taste that marshmallow here. You really can. And I think I’m getting the very very slightest bit of fruitiness here? Can’t really tell. Either way, this stuff is a dessert enigma and in the best way possible. Vaping this solo will not disappoint. Worthy of a shake and vape? Very surprising for a dessert, but absolutely. With how good this is off the shake, I can only imagine that a steep will do this wonders.
1 week - Still thick and creamy. Not getting as much of the custard notes here. Very toasty, in a very good way. Marshmallow is very present. A lot of people say they can’t taste marshmallow much, but you really can here. This is going to be great for anything that needs a nice toasty aspect, or marshmallow aspect, because both of those are quite prominent here. And this is still good enough to solo.
