Which flavour is best for me?
Posted on 5 December 2014 by Matt Brown.
Vaping is attractive for many reasons. We've discussed before the various benefits of making the switch; from the health side of things, to safety and the savings you can make. One benefit in particular is often the one which our customers point to when asked – choice.
Vapers have access to a vast array of options when it comes to the hardware they choose to use, but just as important is the choice of flavours available.
No longer stuck with just tobacco or menthol to choose from, vapers can select anything from Apple, to Watermelon, to Banana Milkshake. It's even possible to mix two or more flavours to come up with your own creation (Chocolate and Mint is a personal favourite)!
But which e-liquid flavour type should you choose? As always, JAC is on hand to help.
Taste is a very subjective thing, so there's never going to be a one-size fits all answer to which flavour you should try. It is possible to make some suggestions based on flavour profiles, however.
After leaving tobacco behind, many new vapers want to try something new. Freed from the same old tobacco and menthol flavours, fruity eliquids are a popular choice.
With everything from refreshing Apple and juicy Watermelon, to the more exotic Kiwi, there's something for everyone, no matter their personal preference (though sadly, lovers of Dragonfruit and Pomegranate may be disappointed).
For those with a sweet tooth, we have a number of options available. Vanilla is suitable for almost everyone, and offers a great sweet and creamy flavour. It's also incredibly versatile and works well mixed with just about anything, lending added sweetness to some more bitter eliquids.
Chocolate is also popular for obvious reasons. Again, it's a flavour which works well on its own but can add a bit of indulgence when mixed with a variety of other eliquids (such as Mint, Banana Milkshake, or even Coffee).
Menthol or minty flavours are refreshing on their own, but some menthol smokers may wish to mix in a tobacco e-liquid to add a little smokiness which they would otherwise lack. Real Tobacco Lite and Pure Menthol, for instance, work very well together.
We have an extensive range of tobacco flavours, owing to the fact that this is the one flavour profile which can be trickiest to get right. Just as there is a variety of tobacco blends, there are a lot of options when it comes to tobacco e-liquids. A full break down of our tobacco flavours should help to give you an idea of which to consider (but we always recommend taking a look at the customer reviews in each listing for an honest feel for how they perform in real life).
Our standard Tobacco flavour. A good starting point for new vapers, it has a slight sweetness and is not too harsh.
- Desert Ship
Inspired by the nutty flavour of popular Turkish tobaccos, this eliquid lacks the sweetness of some other tobacco flavours in the range.
- DK TAB
A sweet, caramel blend. Ideal for those vapers who like their tobacco with a little added sweetness.
- Reds USA
Inspired by popular American tobaccos, Reds USA is a little smokier than our standard Tobacco flavour, but retains a little sweetness.
- Tobacco Virgin
One for those used to rolling tobacco. Smoky, with no sweetness, its ideal for those looking for something a little more full-on than standard Tobacco.
- Real Tobacco
Our UK Made tobacco flavour, steeped with real tobacco leaves for a realistic smoky flavour. This is a seriously punchy flavour, and not one for the faint hearted.
- Real Tobacco Lite
Based on feedback from our customers, we dialled back the smokiness of our Real Tobacco flavour, leaving something which while still punchy, is far smoother.
- Smooth Cigar
One for the cigar smokers, this is a strong, full-on tobacco flavour. Again steeped with real tobacco leaves which impart authentic smokiness.
