Flavor Name  Notes  Time Started  Recommended % 
FA Aurora  Super realistic lime note, wonderful in cocktails, body gives fizz to your mix, good single flavor vape at 3%, sparkling champagne – Concrete 

Really good all by itself as a SFT – Cheeba 

1106  .5 – 1 
FLV Lime Wedge  Promising realistic, with fading issues – Concrete 

It disappears, its good but it leaves very quickly – Emily 

1107  3 
INW Lime  Sweet, lime juice, cocktail <– BEFORE the change| AFTER the change –> not bad, not interesting, weaker, sweet, less vibrant and syrupy – Concrete  1114   
FLV Lime  Closest inw sub, made for a slushie .5% – 1% was perfect – Emily 

Candied lime – Cheeba 

Finecky, turns into a cleaning product, >.5% is “aggressive”, neon green, needs something sweeter to attach to  – Concrete 

1.5% = windex, lime slushie flavor, would pair very well with sweetener- Dave 

1117  .5 
VT Lime Corgle  Really interesting, flv –esque green thing going on, has a odd mineral carbonation thing with it, good single flavor, a bit weak, 3% in a mix solo 6-8% – Concrete 

A vanilla lime cream soda candy – Dave 

1120  2-3% (Mix) 


WF Lime  Bitter @ 1.5% – Cheeba 

Lime candy, lime lollipop, fades with the steep, loses vibrancy, not bitter or typical citrus harshness – Dave 

Lime soda or sprite, bright – Emily 

TFA Key Lime  Medium amount of harshness, bitterness, responds well to creams or ethyl maltol – Dave 

Not super bright, thickness and body to it, easy to work with but more of a candy lime, not authentic – Cheeba 

The most versatile – Emily 

FA Florida Key Lime  Pretty mellow, not as aggressive a zest note, not as syrupy, good for “lime body” – Concrete 

Lime juice, not thick, sweet but not candy – Emily 

Nice, tasty, fresh, not juicy but not dry either, – Dave 

1129  2% – Cheeba & Emily 

>2% is ok 

3 – 3.5% – Concrete 

CAP Lime  Limeade from concentrate but a bit off, funky & old, real lime and some zest – Dave  

Bad lime juice from your fridge – Concrete 

1130  3% – Dave 

5% – Concrete 

FA Lime Tahiti Cold Pressed   Freshly squeezed lime juice at 1%, good for cocktails – Cheeba 

Unsweetened, lime juice, DOES NOT FADE – Dave 

Can be balanced with a more candied lime quite well, could be a stand in for a lime zest note – Concrete 

1133  .5% 1% – Em 

2% – Dave 

4% = Harsh – Dave 

 FA Lime – Distilled  Shaper, skin of the lime – Emily 

Lime zest on top of a thin soda base, with a thin fizzy feel, slightly harsh, thin, metallic taste – Dave 

A thin syrup, hard sugar sweetness – Concrete 

FW natural Key Lime  Distracting amount of sweetness behind the zest note – Concrete 

Didn’t taste natural, too sweet, very sweet, good key lime pie, or a sweet lime juice – Dave 

1145  3-6%  
TFA Key Lime Pie  Terrible, not like a key lime pie, total dud, pie crust with rubber bands in it, bitter, stringent and harsh with rubberbands – Dave  1142   
INW Shisha Lime  Much zestier, lighter syrup, some lemon in it, sweet – Dave 

At 2% sweet limeade, a bit of lemon in the body, not a replacement for the “old” inw lime, fairly vibrant – Concrete 

1150  2 – 3% 
Nude Nicotine Key Lime Pie Filling  Accurate to its name, smooth, creamy, fairly linear, – Cheeba  1153  3-5% 
FW Hawaian Limeade  Hate it, 75% Hawaiian punch, spiked with lime, off note cherry flavor – Dave  1155  At 4% 
VT Persian Lime  Cross between cold pressed and distilled, feels like the avg of lime flavors, solid, sweetness picks up with a steep – Concrete 

A better for most uses distilled lime, lime zest up top, a lot less fizzy and a lot more limey cold pressed, body is thinner, some tartness, not overly sweet, not harsh, doesn’t fade – Dave 

1156  2 – 4% 
INW Cactus Lime  Cactus & Lime together – old version 75% cactus & 25% lime – Concrete  1200
