Apricot

Just say squishy apricots make good jam! Ha! Oh wow.. truly impressed with this cool flavor, Flavorah!

Wow.. I am impressed with this one. First off, when heading for testing it, the smell when opening the bottle, brings me back to my childhood, feeding baby dolls apricots and apples.. jams. Made me smile really big, as idea after idea came and went in my head, smelling the aroma this bottle has to give! Thank you for this one, well worth the wait!

Breaking it down, 10ml bottles in my rows.. one day I do need to grab a picture of how I do this! I use around 5-10 10ml bottles, in rows on my table. filled with just vg, and I run my flavors from 1 drop up to 8-10 drops at a time. With this one, at 2 drops, .04 grams, .4% right here is where I can start to taste it (doesn’t take much!) and 3 drops, .06 grams .6%, the apricot peeks out even more.. sweet, soft yellow squishy apricot. Raising it up one more drop, 4 drops .08 grams .8% I start to get the green from the stem.. fresher.. 6 drops .12 grams 1.2%, not much change in whole taste, except here, I notice it starts to muddle.. and with that.. will stop. Threshold is 2-6 drops for me. 🙂
Beautiful, flavor true to form, and yes, will have to grab a larger bottle when I can! <3

Sorry for the delay in the reviews, the flu bug is going around. Make sure to keep hand sanitizer, and wash your hands.. You can never be too careful, but you can still keep up precautions. 🙂

Amaretto Sour

I know a girl, one of my best vape friends, that really loves a good Amaretto Sour! So let me give this a spin shot and let’s see what this flavor is really all about! This one is for you, Darlene! 🙂

 

Running the drops in 10ml bottles, let’s start with 4 drops .8 grams and yes can begin to taste it here, light alcohol with hints of orange? Just like the picture, but watered down, yes, it needs MORE! so 6 drops .12 grams or 1.2% we go! oh my! I get an orange cherry taste and the almond and rum are there too, perfection, but still a bit low. HuH? Yes, let’s go 8 drops .16 grams or 1.6% and Bob is my Uncle, I have to claim him!! I went ahead here and added just 2 drops of vanilla bean to this, just for giggles, and it’s muted it a hair, but not bad, just tamed a bit. I think once it matures, it will develop nicely, as I do love extra vanilla taste in my  liqueur. 10 drops .20 grams and it starts to go south on me, too heavy, and just not my style. So if I use this beautiful flavor, I know I will run it anywhere from 4-8 drops in any given recipe. Now I have something to kick back with tonight, mellowing out with a good grilled chicken salad and the stars 🙂
Thanks Flavorah for the chance to taste test these!

I can see Amaretto Sour butter cookies and even creams, nuts and tobaccos as well as a standalone drink type 😉 YAY!!

Side note: I love how the nuts and rum play in the background, but not so much an empty bottle! Off to mix more!

Smoked Butterscotch

Smoked Butterscotch, I think I am in LOVE! <3 oh my gosh, there I go!

 

Sorry I could not capture the elves sitting around the fire, smoking this beautiful butterscotch, but I do have the results in a beautiful thick latte!! omy, you all will absolutely love it, but not as much as I do! So if Flavorah runs out, you can blame me! 🙂

I already know, let’s start with 2 drops .04 grams in my 10ml bottle, and yes there it is, not in my face, but i can taste it, buttery butterscotch, with smoky hints.. oh! It’s light, almost a fluffy, if you pare it with 2 drops .04 grams sweet cream! Let’s go 4 drops .08 grams or .8% and omg thick, rich, in my face goodness.. <3 drools!!  Let’s try the 6 drops .12 grams and there it is, it’s on the edge of just too much goodness! Will break out my crown and toss this one in there. On the crown D1, it’s about perfection, just like I thought. Remember, tanks can mute your flavors, but you also have to keep in mind the dripper users too, Balance is a hard act, and this is why when some grab recipes off the net, taste is the perceived amount of what the recipe writer is portraying. Keeping up now, it’s Big girl time, using 8 drops .16 grams or 1.6% and if I focus, using my dripper (musketeer rda) I can taste the chemtrail happenstance, just on the edge of burnt. I hate that when it happens. So there is my limit. Right there. 🙂

I can see this being used in fruits, creams, drinks, nuts and tobaccos. I suggest a huge bottle. Don’t play, I might buy it all up before anyone else can! 🙂 ~S.

Sangria

Kick back time, with my bottle of Sangria! Taking the top off, you are sure to smell that red wine smell, full body and hints of fruit, but let’s take a closer look at this one, eh?

Sangria, Maria! Oh have mercy on me! Let’s drop this lol. I know, omg not the drops again, but here it is. It only takes 1 drop to change a liquid into something else. One drop. So here I go, 1 drop .02 grams in 10ml and its there, but muddy, not clear, but I do get a hint of something alcoholic. Is there alcohol in this? Let’s find out! Upping it to 3 drops .06 grams in 10mls, the wine in more pronounced, the fruits show up, an orange taste, and other fruit bits, wonder if I can get them to pop a bit more. Using 6 drops .12 grams in 10mls, it still stays the same, but heavier and muted, the flavors seem to go mush. Mind you, I am using my new dripper, and running it at .5 ohms and 65 watts

I have to say I love the new mod and dripper. 🙂 and I really do enjoy Sangria! I would love to add more fruits to this, and even perhaps a frozen type drink mix.. 🙂 Cheers, glasses up!

Peppermint

One of my favorites now for a few months, is peppermint! I can work with this in so many ways, from fruits to even nutty chocolates, tobaccos, drinks, you name it, peppermint is always a fun play time taste for me.

Do not try this flavor straight, just do not! Scope has nothing on the strength this one has! It will make you drool, and not in a controlled way, but zombie drool, and it will attack your sinuses! However, peppermint is good for upset tummy aches. (On the bright side)

Lining up my bottles, and knowing what I know about this flavor, 1 drop .02 grams in 10mls is detectable. It doesn’t take much at all, and is light. Using 2 drops .04 grams in 10ml makes it heavier, tasty and fun to play with. Now 4 drops, is going to be too much for any dripper, but a tank can handle up to around 4 drops .08 grams. I would not push this flavor at all, and keep it at .8% usage.

No recipe, but I am sure your imagination can add this cool mint to just about anything!

Pucker!

Umhmm, pucker up big boys and girls! This flavor is for those that really need a pucker in their lives! Excellent idea, Flavorah!

Just what mama warned you, do this and your face might just freeze! Oh wait, that was yet another facial expression.. Carrying on! Let’s do this, for sure, it is a given yet another additive! Additives can be fun when done right.. so let’s find out how puckery is pucker!

First note: when you do use it, there is a background taste, almost like a smoke note. So be prepared. It will fade out and become tasteless, but push this one too hard and it will come back and bite you! It also seems to have a bit of cool in it, however I do know that is the “Pucker” note. (This comes from dropping a drop on a spoon and actually tasting it, straight, not diluted, so go for it. If I can, you can!) You can even taste that smoke note like this.. but, let’s not stay here, moving on to bottles and drops once again, just like always!

Using 1 drop .02 grams in 10mls, it’s hard to detect, so I chose to go with odd numbers this time. 🙂  3 drops in 10mls, and I peg it! way too much, after sitting with 12 drops Red apple! I got pucker! Yes. Smoky puckered! 😮 I could lower this to 2 drops, but yet I want to push this pucker! Taking it to 6 drops .12 grams or 1.2% and yeps there is it, overuse! Abusing my tongue won’t help, but it’s too late. Cracker and Coffee time!

Spiced latte and Cookies

Anytime you mess up your tastebuds, they need a reset. I recommend trying new flavors, drinking coffee, spicy chips, cookies, or anything else that is different from what your pallet normally tastes. Give it time, and they will be back to what you perceive as normal. Just for a heads up, your taste buds change at 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months and 3 years. This is why they are truly your best buds, as even tho they change, they always stick around and guide you to what it is you want. 🙂 Take care of them and they wont want to feel like running away!

Pastry Zest

Open the top of Pastry Zest, go on! The first thing comes to mind, is the smell of zesty sugar? Oh wow, Additive, for sure!

This is something pretty sweet! Break down on Pastry Zest, with my handy dandy 10ml bottles! Using 2 drops .04 grams I can pick up something muddled but there is some kind of taste there. Upping it to 4 drops .08 grams and it is definitely there! It is hard as a solo to detect exactly what it will do, but you can and do get the feeling for this sugary zesty bit. I tossed it into a few bakery juices I have, and yes, powdery, sugar without the sweet, zesty citrus type flavor helper. Backing it down to 3 drops .06 grams with some graham cracker and donuts flavors, you can almost feel the textured help this will give to your juices.  Pushing it to 6 drops .12 grams or 1.2% is too much, at least for me. I get a powder, dry and my mouth feels like I am too dehydrated. Keep this in mind when flavor pushing! You don’t want people to feel like it is ever too much!

Good for all bakery type mixes, cuz I said so!  Have some fun, try even adding this to just fruits, you might be surprised! Other than this, I do have a big bottle coming! Beautiful additive and happy to add it to my collection! Mix on! 🙂

Carrot

Hey carrot heads, what is up, Ya’ll? haha!
I’d never ever thought I’d be vaping, as a solo flavor, a carrot! Never! Gee, thank you, the good peepz at Flavorah! I can now say I have!

This is “The Carrot” Yes! Orangy, earthy, with a tiny, yes, tiny touch of green. I do get that green from this, but, it is in the very background! It’s aww heck, let me do a break down first! Then maybe you can see where I am going with this one.

With my handy dandy pile of 10ml bottles, I started at 2 drops .04 grams and did not taste anything, then I went to 4 drops .08 grams and yes.. something was there, sweet muddled something. Ok, I can be brave! 6 drops .12 grams and there! behold the first taste of.. drum roll, it is a carrot, bam! Earthy not quiet dirty, carrot! So, to explore it more, I went to 8 drops and same carrot taste, a little heavier with the earthy carrot, and no it is not a dirty one, just with that carrot taste, like a fresh clean one. Moving on to 10 drops .20 grams, (Oh my gosh, let’s do it!) the sweet part comes out more, but so does this green I get. I wonder if this is part of the chemtrails I get when taking a few too high? It’s like the carrot top part, weird. Will be curious if I get any responses once this is released. Let’s push this 12 drops .24 grams or 2.4% oh no. Just No! NO! I get a bitter bit in my nose and mouth. No. So my threshold for carrot is under 2.4% and yes that was the chemtrail effect I find 99% of FLV has.. some can push and skip over this amount if they so choose, but for me and mine.. will keep this one at 2% and under.. 🙂

Less is more, less is better and I do not want a bunny to think I am in competition! 🙂

Now as far as what to do with this flavor, why cake, creams, maybe nuts.. but I can see a few fruits overpowering it.. so be careful in what you add this beautiful flavor in. I happen to like carrots, maybe with a brown sugar glaze, basil and cinnamon. Happy thoughts and mixing!

Carrots

Vanilla Beans!

What the heck is this, I soo want to love, Vanilla Beans! <3

Smell test: yes vanilla beans. Smoky, woody, check! So excited!

Before I jump in too deep, I had a few people reach out to me and ask me what’s wrong with this flavor. What? Yes. from .5-3% I have had a few that just can not taste this as a stand alone. So now, let’s jump!

At 3 drops .06 grams in 10ml, I can get the jist of this one. It comes in almost like a cloudy mist, with a hint of smoky taste.. yes I can get that from this level which is only .6%, and most probably will not notice it here. Bump it up to 6 drops .12 grams or 1.2% and then you should start tasting the smoky goodness of the beans. (Vanillin is different as you do not get the smoky, you will get pure vanilla taste, in fact this is where that vanilla love resides and why you need both the beans and the vanillin to make your vanilla juices just pop!) At 10 drops, it is an in your face. The reason most have issues tasting this is due to it being an additive and you might want to think on trying either fruits or creams with this one. Aim for say blueberry at 9 drops .18 grams and Cream at 6 drops .12 grams and then you can tell exactly what this can do for your juices.

Vanilla beans not only go well for creams, but nuts fruits and tobaccos, so play around with it. I really hope this helps out in the community and please don’t shoot me for saying this works better keeping it low.

Side note: Vanilla is the second-most expensive spice after saffron because growing the vanilla seed pods is labor-intensive.

Root Beer!

Oh my gosh, yes foamy and spicy, Root beer! Fill up my tank and call me a happy girl! 🙂 This is one I know I will treasure! Here I go again!

First smell: Heaven in a bottle! Ha! Can tell yes, that is a for sure real root beer! I know for a fact, what all it takes to make the best root beer, as I do create it every blue moon for home use. The list of ingredients can be found here. Flavorah, what a delight you managed to capture and send off to me, I want to explore now!

Using my drops at 4, or .08 grams I can barely taste it, but it is showing up to the party and oh yes I can not wait to taste the full effect! at 6 drops .12 grams it is at the point of almost full in your face. Raising it up to 10 drops .20 grams, its a bit beyond in your face, the rooty-ness is muddy, and just not as bright as 6-8 drops. You really do not have to add creams, but if you do, don’t go over the root beer. It can be possible to drown out the notes it has.

If I was to do add in’s, I’d add more ginger, some cool menthol, ice, heat, maybe light fruits, and yes, I can see a bunch of recipes built off this one, but will revisit it again next week. Big bottle heading my way, oh yes!! 🙂
