HC (Health Cabin) Fuji Apple:
Sweet, tart, yet red apple. Touch of a grassy, green apple top note. Over a syrupy base- like Fuji apple syrup. Disjointed, some separation between top note and base. Not a bad flavour. Usable in a mix.
Tested at 1%. May come together better higher or lower?
No off notes. But boring. Not very bright, mellow, a bit flat. Slightly artificial, like a generic, store brand apple juice. Not very sweet, not dry but not very juicy.
Tested at 4%. Tried up to 8%, pushing it up higher doesn’t make it bolder.
Like apple juice. Brighter and more flavourful than TFA More depth, sweeter. Very sweet, without being candy. Not very juicy. Could add something like a pear to make it more juicy?
Full flavoured at 1%. Starts to get a little dry around 2%
FA Apple Stark:
Fairly sweet red apple. Pretty accurate to a Red Delicious. Nice depth. Natural feeling sweetness. Lacks crispness. Not that juicy. Very smooth, no harshness. Has some body.
Tested at 2% and 3%.
INW Shisha Apple:
Really tart, but not a green apple. More syrupy than juicy. May be hard to work with as so syrupy. May only work in certain mixes and probably something a recipe would have to be built around.
FLV Apple Pop:
Tastes like apple pieces tossed in melted sugar with a little cinnamon. Really bold, very sweet and tasty. But have to use where some peel, a little spice and a whole lot of sweetness wouldn’t be out of place.
VT Fuji Red Apple:
Really, really sweet and a little flat, which gives it a candy vibe. Really bold, full flavoured, punchy, good depth. Quite a bit of body and thickness. More peel than other Fujis. Tartness that usually comes from peel runs all the way through.
FLV Red Apple:
Very authentic to and very clearly a natural, red apple. Has a lot of depth, bold, full flavoured. Has a little bit of peel that’s crisp, but not tart. Mealy texture. the
Tested at 1%, 1.5%, 2% and 3%. Use around 1%. When used too high starts to get really deep, ripe and mushy. Looses the crispness.
CAP Fuji Apple:
Really good. Bright, bold, nice thickness and juiciness. Fresh tasting. A bit bottom heavy, lacks some tartness. But shines in its sweetness and juiciness. Has mealy texture.
DEL Red Delicious Apple:
Delightfully mediocre. But pretty good. Fairly mellow, nice sweetness that lends itself towards candy. Not particularly juicy. A mellow apple candy.
Tested at 5%.
PUR Country Apple:
A baked, mushy apple. Has no spice note, which makes it more versatile. Has some cooked apple type peel. Like cooked Fuji apple, as has some subdued tartness.
Very bright, fresh, crisp, clean, authentic. Pretty sweet. Does fade a bit over time. Too sharp for some, while for others sharpness adds to brightness. Can be harsh to some at higher %s but gets smoother with steep. A little thin, not much body but juicy.
Tested at 2%. The amount of flavour does increase as the % is increased, but peel can get spicy and may become sharp or harsh to some.
Very similar to FA Fuji. JF isn’t quite as a bright, and so not as sharp or harsh. Has some peel, but doesn’t get the spiciness FA does. A little bit sweeter than FA. Also a little more full bodied and thicker. Has a bit of a syrupy body. But slightly less juicy.
