    no.. it is a black honey tobacco. it does have tobacco in it, fairly light..
    try adding some ina canadian type around 1.5% to 8% black honey and 1% vanilla for tobacco and let it sit for 3 weeks..

    let me know how you like it..
    of course you could add:

    1drop white vinegar
    1 drop ap
    1 drop ta

    into that as well..

    play around with not just the flavors but additives too! :)

    Not a fan of Halo's Twisted Java, are you? TFA Caramel Capp is the coffee flavor in there, and they aren't light-handed with it.

    Try mixing Lychee at a very low % with another fruit that is sweet, like a maraschino cherry or juicy peach. The Lychee has a bite to it, the sweetness of the other fruit will tone that down a bit, and counterbalance the sourness of the Lychee.

    You can always add something like TFA Smooth to round out that harsh lychee fruit note. I've not personally worked with Smooth at all yet. But, that's its intended use - to take rough edges off mixes.

    The skittles from the local B&M in my town.
    Even with it mixed with 100% VG, this gives a throat hit that would make the most jaded cloud chaser cough up a lung, not to mention unless vape it on a rebuildable coil setup you'll never get rid of the taste. Believe me, I've tried. Soaked an Aspire coil in alcohol for a week to no avail.

    I managed to vape M-Type.

    I don't have my notes here but I know I've done M-Type at 0.5% with Caramel and Vanilla (both FA) to a 5% mix. Maybe 2% Caramel and 2,5% Vanilla, I'm not quite sure about it.
    And it has 3 week steeping, as I feel M-Type really needs it.

    Edit: It's not awesome, is vapable :)

    TFA Tiramisu, tastes nothing like the dessert. More like burnt toast with burnt sugar.

    It's strong flavor, for sure - but it shouldn't taste burnt. I use maximum 1%, usually 0.5% combined with sweet, creay, mellow flavors to make it smoother and sweeter. I know a lot of Tiramisu fans like it strong and plain (2% will give you that), but it sounds as if you and I have similar tastes. You might try this smooth, sweet tiramisu that I like: http://vapingunderground.com/threads/hics-tiramisu-cheesecake-simple.3174/

    She got to work and started screaming at me on the Cell hahaha I am not really mean spirited I told her in the glove box was some fruit in a tank
    then she wasn't mad she got home and said "Whatever it was it tasted like Dirt" hahaha I still have like 15ML anyone want it? hehe

    Anyone that can vape M-Type @ 10%, even if mixed with other flavors, can vape anything because their taste buds are officially dead. That stuff is strong and at .5% was down right nasty. I still have a 30ml bottle with 29.5ml left. It's sat in a bag, alone, for nearly 8 months now.

    Unlike most flavors, that stuff doesn't get better with age and giving it time to mix in with the PG/VG only makes it worse. Shew. I'm honestly not even sure what you'd use that flavor for, even for baking, candy, etc.

    For me at least, add to the list:

    TFA Green Apple (Granny Smith) - burning plastic taste

    FlavorArt pinapple - one whiff of the flavor and it reminds you of a burning tire mixed with vomit. Me and a co-worker nicknamed it Michelin puke

    Eww! From that description, I'd guess you mixed it something over 3%. FA flavors are pretty strong. Standalone 2-3% FA Pineapple is enough for me, a fresh juice taste. Don't know anyone who can vape that one 5% or higher. (as FA flavors go, it's not among the strongest, either)

    Pineapple is my favorite flavor. I bought every pineapple flavor I could find to try and duplicate local BM sweet pineapple. Never could find one juicy enough to satisfy me.

    The most gawd awful flavor I ever tried was from the create you own option via EC Blends.

    Totally my fault. Possibly explains why I am not into DIY.

    The taste still haunts me!

    Hahaha - I did that, too! I poured over descriptions and designed all my fancy combinations, felt like such a vape chef. They were the most horrible liquids I've ever tasted, lol! Too bad, 'cuz I gave them snazzy names.

    Don't let that stop you from DIY. I guarantee you can do better on your own.

    I appreciate your misplaced confidence in my skills.

    While I am quite certain that I can get PG/VG/Nic levels right not so confidant with adding flavors.

    But they all sound so GOOD!

    But it is now getting late for me ( call me Ben Franklin) as I am an early to bed and early to rise kind of guy.

    And it is that magic time of night when my Weenie is getting sleepy and starting to droop a bit as well as being a bit sluggish indicating that it is time to log off for the evening, go to bed, give my most beloved Weenie a nice long scratch and rub before going to sleep.:D

    Any juice called 'BrianJ', regardless of flavor content, will automatically be shitty. :) (Sorry for off-topic, just found that thread tonight)

    Ok I got another...
    Flavor express blueberry.
    If you smell the bottle it's game over don't mix it cause you won't smoke it. Otherwise mix at 2% and let it steep for a few weeks if it's not strong enough add another drop. I do have a client that loves it. Thinks it's the best flavor ever but....he hasn't smelled the bottle

    TFA honeydew. Tastes wonderful for about .5 ml of vaping then it gets so overwhelming you can't stand the smell of it. And it will fuse with any plastic tank and takes awhile to get out of glass tanks.

    Whoa.... I've had nothing but good things to say so far about TFA Honey Dew. I put it in with some other fruits, and it was phenomenal.

    Pink and the Stink from Avail. Tuna / Blue Cheese. Makes crab juice look like a fine custard.
