My first impressions:
The Cheesiest, …most “Love Boat” label… IN VAPING^TM
Sweet, fruity with complementary aromas of raspberry and peach with a slight addition of lime. Taste of summer full of delicious fruit flavors.
- percentage used: 4%
- overnight steep
- PG/VG ratio: 50/50
- vaped on Nautilus mini
- 1.8 ohm coil
- 11.1 Watts
- slight “floral” topnote (which can be tamed)
- thin peach flavour,
- tart Inawera raspberry, way back in the mix,
- light touch of naturalistic lime.
- there’s something of a Sharon Fruit “bite” about it.
- Thin, tart.
- Mildly adstringent sensation.
- Moderately sweet.
- Floral top note might be scary for some.
- could probably get a bit chemically with too much over 4%.
- I personally find it a bit on the dry side, will try with
Cactus / Dragonfruit
Position In A Recipe:
- this immediately comes across as mid to top kind of flavour, but I’ve found it to fill a main role too.
- 4, or less, to add character, or adstringency to fruits that are too “one dimensional” or candy-like
- Reinforcement for Peach, add depth to sweet Apricot, Plum
- add a tang to Raspberry/ Strawberry mixes
- give a tartness to fruit toppings on cakes, tarts, turnovers.
- add depth to teas, lemonades.
- Add bite to hard candies
Interesting starting point for Sorbets, fruit, drinks, deserts.
also for those who want to like Juicy Peach, but can’t.
Foresee myself mostly using this in the cold/fruity side of things,
as an antidote to the tobaccos I’ve been enjoying
Is this a keeper?
for me yes, still playing with it, learning from the balance in the mix.
In the same way that cloning a juice can be a good reverse-engineering exercise ;
Combinations such as these, teach us what can be achieved with just three concentrates.
I’ll usually throw a few “wild card” flavours in the cart, when ordering from Inawera, rarely regret it.
I am curious to see what directions others take it to!
*edited “for sanity” might add as I get to know it better.
