At first I wanted to call Cool Menthol an additive, but that isn’t the case at all! It really is a flavor. It has its pros, like cool refreshing and that is the best, however that menthol! It is really good, but very mild. I think most shy away from this due to the menthol in the name, but if you are looking to create a cool refreshing taste, this is the flavor you will want to use, just don’t be shy about it.
To test it out, I ran my 10ml bottles out, from 2 drops to 10 drops, just to be a bit freaky, and what I discovered is, that I must crave, at least in the summer, a higher amount than my normal usages. In the 2 drop .04 grams bottle, I found it extremely light, but it was there.. at 4 drops .08 grams, it is a light, coo. and refreshing bit.. but it tends to fade out within a few weeks (that is one of the issues using things like this as well as koolada and ws23, ws3, etc as it will fade out) at 6 drops .12 grams it becomes a bit stronger, and in the range of what I really crave right now, but it leaves a bit of a taste back I just cant stand. Using 8 drops .16 grams in 10ml is just way too much and maybe it might be me, but it zeros itself out and totally mutes within a few days.
So the con is that used too much, it can not only mute itself, but other flavors in the juice too.. slow and steady with this one.. find your own limit.
