VSO Single Flavor Tests Part II by SessionDrummer

Having tested most of Shane’s outstanding natural fruit flavors, I kept seeing mention of his newer creams, bakeries, etc., and couldn’t NOT get into them. I placed an order on the site, and Shane hit me back, and said he was going to throw in some new ones as well !!! Looks like this one’s gonna be a big one, with 19 flavors to test.

Check out my original VSO Single Flavor and Blends tests here

Having not been on the VSO Flavors site in a bit, I was blown away by Shane’s new(er) offerings, and now we’ll help bring them all into the limelight.

Steep times, and testing percentages are being finalized now, so STAY TUNED !!!

I wonder if you could use the Marachino Cherry in a Chocolate Ice cream base and have a Cherry Garcia type juice.

This will be good @SessionDrummer I’m interested in the pct you end up with on some of these. I don’t have his new raw flavors but I have several of the ones you posted. The issue I have with VSO is that some flavors (Espresso for one) works at 1-2% for me but some I have to boost much higher. I’d be curious what you land on.

Hehe @Iv3shf I don’t know about lucky, more like compulsively compelled !!! I’d focused on Shane’s fruits for the most part, with a few Blends beyond that. I started seeing mentions of Custard, Bakeries, and I thought, “What ??!!!”. Re-checked the site, and WOW, as there were more new, than I knew.

These will be all breaking new ground for me, so I’m going to have to really lock down the testing percentages.

Agreed @muth, and even I don’t always get the percentages right the first time. I think for all of Shane’s “Raw” flavors, I settled on 0.3%. His blends I ran much higher per the suggested usage. Still finalizing these up before mixing…

I had to smell them all @Ken_O_Where, and the Lemon Raw smelled VERY good.

Thanx for doing these reviews SD!
I picked up their Strawberry Ice Cream Cake and the Strawberry Mute a short time ago. It’s probably just me but the Mute was nothing special. :slightly_frowning_face:

I like the mute, it is a bit stronger than MF but a totally different SB flavor. And quite dark. Did you try the SB Ice cream cake?

3 Likes

Yep. SFT’d it at 12%. Upped it to 15% which was better.

Thanks a lot, and you’re welcome @TorturedZen.

I haven’t tested the SB Ice Cream Cake yet, but did test the SB Raw, and it was quite good. But, not being SB Mute, I couldn’t speak to that aspect of it.

I wish I’d seen this BEFORE I ordered LOL.

Why? It’s a one-shot.
I haven’t gotten the Strawberry Raw yet so I’m curious about that one.

As far as i know Raw and Mute are the same, no?

Looks like it, guess i have some merging to do as i have both flavor names in my stash.

But, not being SB Mute, I couldn’t speak to that aspect of it.

The fellas that sent it to me was SB mute, he couldnt taste it.

Ehhh, it’s never a bad idea to see what’s what @TorturedZen.

I had thought that the SB Raw was the same as the SB Mute flavor ?
