    I found that I like Flavour Art Raspberry as a standalone vape, but it makes my throat swell, so that sucks.

    Can someone recommend a brand of Raspberry they enjoy? I'll be looking at the ingredients in Flavour Art raspberry if I can find them, and try to figure out which chemical it has that makes me react badly.

    Inawera Raspberry Koncentrate (malina). It's pretty strong but really good I think.
    I haven't had their other two (Wera Garde, & Shisha). I almost ordered the Shisha during this weekends sale but didn't pull the trigger. I haven't tried many others. I only have three.

    INW raspberry concentrate, almost as good as FA raspberry in my opinion, but slightly less versatile for me. I love FA, but I rarely use it as a standalone, I find it is at its best with creams, ice creams, TFA blueberry candy to become blue raz, citrus and berry fruits, some tropical like mango, and of course TFA dragon fruit...apologies, I started rambling :oops:
    Point is FA raspberry is king of the castle for me, INW is next in line for the throne, TFA sweet raspberry is good, but not as good as the other two, most of the others I've tried is pretty lackluster.

    Raspberries I use,

    FA raspberry (you already have)
    LB Blue raspberry
    CAP Blue raspberry cotton candy
    OSDIY Blue raspberry slush
    CAP raspberry
    INW raspberry
    TFA Sweet raspberry

    If you find them lackluster or harsh on their own, These flavors will enhance it,

    CAP harvest berry
    CAP sweet strawberry
    TFA blueberry candy
    FA fuji apple

    If you still need to make is smoother or desire a better mouthfeel, add these,

    FA cream fresh
    FA marshmellow
    TFA sweet and tart
    CAP vanilla cupcake (surprisingly works well with raspberry)

    The often unsung hero of recipes, seriously that flavor is way too good. I don't even like cake-y vapes, but I find myself getting nervous when I drop below 10mls of the stuff.

    Im with this guy. Caps is definitely my favorite raspberry, Inawera is good too but soo damn strong you have to be quite conservative with it. But it is a nice candied raspberry at super low percentages.

    Capella has an awesome Raspberry but I hear Inawera has a better one.

    Cap Raspberry has been a staple in my arsenal for quite some time. Its balanced and mixes well with a variety of other concentrates. I'd def recommend it to anyone seeking a great Raz

    To me, TFA Sweet and CAP taste like cough syrup, and CAP has gone ahead and soaked its cough syrup in flower petals as well. FW is pretty much a mess of oversweet perfume. FA is somewhat better, but still on the floral side. Seems to mix well with compatible flavors, but it seems like it's either too weak or too perfumy. I'm still experimenting with FLV, it has a harsh edge that's hard to tame, and I get perfume from it as well. INW Koncentrate is a monster, but I've had limited success with it at sub 0.50% ratio. Seems to work best as a distant accent to compatible fruits, FA Black Current is a good mating as it smooths out its harsh edges and adds "moisture". INW Shisha is a decent performer, but it definitely needs help to cut its dryness, and it's really more on the candy side (though to be fair, they all are, FA excepted).

    IMHO, Raspberry is a bitch flavor, like chocolate. Nobody has really gotten it right, yet, but there are ways around it (FA Forest Fruit).
