    Default The Mixologist Project Week 1 Ratings and Discussion

    Week 1 Ratings, each of the raters should open a post in this thread early even if they are not ready to post so they will all be on the first page or so. Lets try and keep the discussion down in here until each has posted then have at it.

    You can edit your post later so if you only have partials or just want to take notes right here in your post that works for me.

    Default Evelyn's Ratings

    This is fun and thanks again OCD!

    First - I think all the flavors could have been stronger - or were missing something. Either stronger flavor or more body. that said, more specifics on each one below.

    Used eGo bat and dripped on a LR 306 - tried an LR 501 bridgless but got very little - sometimes no - flavor.


    Week #1

    TFA

    Black Cherry (15%) Noticeable diff between this and the regular cherry - less of a candy flavor but still sweet. Strong (good) scent on exhale. Added drop of the PK TAB before atty went dry and liked the combo - but would use a sweeter TAB to mix.


    Blueberry (15%) Sweet - like blueberry pie filling. Would like to try with a cheesecake flavor.

    Cranberry (15%) - tired right after blueberry and got Ocean Spray cran-blue! On it's own - definite cranberry flavor. Not sweet. Since I'm from cranberry country - i missed a bit of bitterness. Quite weak over all.

    Granny Smith Apple (15%) Tried right after cranberry - not a win. On it's own, it had a green apple candy flavor more than a real GS apple flavor.

    LA

    Apple (15%) Really didn't notice much at all but a vague fruitiness.

    Cherry (15%) Reminds me of Smith Brothers cough drops. Not necessarily a bad thing - we used to eat them for candy when i was a kid! Noticeable TH. Would like with other fruit or chocolate. Tried it with the pineapple. (2 drops C 1 drop P) nice - add some marshmallow and coconut and we'd have church supper style ambrosia!

    FA

    Dark Vapure (5%) Not my fav. Don't know what to say as it just didn't do anything for me - except i did notice an 'off' taste - like something about to go bad (fermented tobacco?)

    Pineapple (15%) - strong nose. Knew is as soon as the cap was off. Reminded me of canned pineapple - not fake but not fresh either.

    Tobacco - Perique Black (10%) Great tobacco - love the spice notes. Would be good just a little stronger.

    White Peach (15%) - Very true to the fruit. White peach has a subtle taste - distinct from darker peaches. This is true to that. Think i'd like this with a little more of the flavor - but no added sweet or sour. Want to preserve the 'white peach' quality.


    ETA: Just read Blewt's post - if nothing else - we're going to learn just how subjective flavor really is!

    These are my Week #1 first impressions. I'm still revisiting some flavors.

    Week #1 OCD
    TFA

    Black Cherry (15%) 3 - smells like cordial cherries - strong th - light flavor - chapstick - smells better than it tastes - cough syrup/lipstick aftertaste - not very sweet - not awesome - mix with chocolate

    Blueberry (15%) 3 - not sweet - smells like blueberry muffin mix, artificial - strong th - chapstick - poptart - not awesome - seems kinda weak

    Cranberry (15%) 2 - smells like alcohol - bitter fruitiness - bitter aftertaste - apple - strong th - very lightly flavored

    Granny Smith Apple (15%) 6 - smells like jolly rancher - Not sweet - strong bitter/tart flavor - strong th - harsh with slight perfume aftertaste - cinnamon? apple pie filling

    LA

    Apple (15%) 5 - smells and tastes like a real apple - not sweet - good th - not bad - best so far - clean flavor - seems like the right mix

    Cherry (15%) 5 - smells like artificial cherry - not sweet - tastes like cherry popsicle - not bad - good th - good mix

    FA

    Dark Vapure (5%) - 6 - smells like an unlit marlboro - earthy - strong tobacco - slightly sweet - strong flavor - not a bad ratio - good stuff

    Pineapple (15%) 6 - smells like pineapple candy - strong flavor - not sweet or sour - not pleasant - dry - needs to be mixed with sweetener - not good by itself

    Tobacco - Perique Black (10%) 6 - smells like pipe tobacco - earthy - coats your tongue - sweet inhale - revisit

    White Peach (15%) 4 - smells like peach jolly rancher - not sweet - doesn't taste like a peach without sweetener - ick

    ETA: I totally agree, Evelyn. It will be interesting to see how much everyone's tastes differ. Most of these tasted like vaping an "extract" of the flavor to me. Like if you were to taste vanilla extract it's nasty, but mix it with milk eggs and sugar and it rocks. I wouldn't be able to vape any of these as they are right now. They just taste like a single component... except for the 2 tobaccos. They seem to be complete.

    First Week Vatic Vapor - will be sweatening up some flavors and trying them again.

    TFA

    Black Cherry (15%) Smells like cherries. Strong TH. taste like chery flavoring. waxy aftertaste.

    Blueberry (15%) Smells like blueberrys. Strong TH. tastes like blueberry flavoring. waxy aftertaste.

    Cranberry (15%) Smells really strong. Taste has a bite, not sure if it even tastes like cranberrys. Strong TH. bitter aftertaste.

    Granny Smith Apple (15%) Smells like green apple. Strong TH. light flavor. aftertaste is not apple.

    LA

    Apple (15%) Smells like apple juice. Good TH - Nice taste, no strange aftertaste.

    Cherry (15%) Smells like cherry flavoring. Good TH. tastes like melted cherry popsicles - I've tasted this almost exact cherry from several vendors

    FA

    Dark Vapure (5%) Smells a little like stale tobacco. Strong TH. tastes quite strong. For someone trying to quit this would be a great mix

    Pineapple (15%) Smells like dried pineapple. Strong TH. Did not taste like pineapple, definately needs to be sweeter.

    Tobacco - Perique Black (10%) Smells like fresh tobacco. Good TH. good taste, kinda fruity, Great aftertaste. Another good one for those trying to quit.

    White Peach (15%) Smells like peach flavoring. Good TH, taste could be sweeter. I've had so much peach I'm burned out.

    Good stuff. Thanks OCD.

    Tasted and tested on a new 1.5ohm joye 510 atty set at 4.2 volts.

    Week #1 OCD
    TFA
    Black Cherry (15%) -4-
    just a tad weak , sweeter may help , little bit of a incense aftertaste but better than other cherries I've tried ...

    Blueberry (15%) -2-
    only tasted on the exhale , nothing exciting about it , a lot like the DK flavor from china.

    Cranberry (15%) -6- The "amount" of flavor was pretty good , tasted on the tongue during inhale , the flavor itself is crap , honestly think there is dog shit in this juice. I gagged a little on exhale.

    Granny Smith Apple (15%) -4-
    just a tad weak , slight air freshener aftertaste but over all pretty good , I could vape this if it was a bit stronger.

    LA

    Apple (15%) -3-
    light flavor , slightly candy taste , cleaner than the TFA Granny

    Cherry (15%) -5-
    percentage seems right , flavor is dead on a cherry Twizzler , not a all day vape for me but good.

    FA

    Dark Vapure (5%) -4-
    Strength is about right , slight perfume taste , not my cup of tea.

    Pineapple (15%)
    -3- light flavor , pleasant but could use some sweetener.

    Tobacco - Perique Black (10%) -5-
    Strength is good , anymore would be too much , not bad for a tobacco , reminds me of wintergreen Skoal.

    White Peach (15%) -4-
    mild flavor , I can taste some peach but it has the same dogshit aftertaste as the cranberry

    I'm using a tanked 2.6ohm Ce2 @ 3.7V on a lavatube.My nose doesn't really work well this time of year so I don't smell much from these small bottles, I'd need to get my snoz in there.
    I'm also tasting these blindly to try and figure out the flavor first.

    Week #1

    TFA

    Black Cherry (15%) - right off that batt I knew it was cherry, it is a cough syrup type of cherry. I also thought i tasted EM in it too.


    Blueberry (15%) - I didn't know what this was when i first tasted it. I thought I tasted a little pineapple. This was a light flavor and also thought there was a bit of EM in this as well.

    Cranberry (15%) - This one I couldn't tell off the bat either, It tasted a bit like coffee at first. It does have a nice cranberry flavor, but I keep tasting coffee.

    Granny Smith Apple (15%) The flavor on this is very strong. It's kind of perfumey, but i think that is due to the strong flavoring. I don't know what I am tasting. Maybe graham cracker??

    Apple (15%)

    Cherry (15%)

    FA

    Dark Vapure (5%)

    Pineapple (15%) -

    Tobacco - Perique Black (10%)

    White Peach (15%)


    I did not see the legend to know hat everything is, I just have numbers on mine.

    I tried 1-1, and 1-2.
