MrJWP08 – Stwarbmelon

by MrJwp08 View Mix

In my opinion, the perfect summer vape. Wonderful full frontal Watermelon essence, with the Strawberry, only just, poking its head through. Give it a try, and don't forget to let me know what you think :):)

So this is one of my older recipes, created at least 3/4 years ago. But, for me, it still stands up as one of my top fruit vapes, so I thought, lets see how Wayne critiques it!!

Both the TPA Strawberry and Strawberry Ripe form the background body of the flavour. I really wanted to focus on the Watermelons.

Cap HoneyDew Melon @ 4% coupled with the INW and TPA Watermelons made the melon shine through in the recipe.

FA Raspberry added some consistency on the exhale. It gives that edge when it comes to adding some authenticity to the flavor.

Added just a touch of INW Dragon fruit to enhance the juiciness of the vape.

I originally had Cap Marshmallow, but removed it as it just seemed to mute the fruits.

Vaped and tested on Entheon RDA Fused Clapton Coils @0.73ohms 45W

Review: MrJWP is here and he’s bringing us a watermelon, strawberry fruit blend that’s great for summertime offerings. Unfortunately, like many of these types of fruit blends, it fails to impress or create any meaningful mark. The flavor brings a watermelon forward flavor, with a light juicy strawberry body, but the execution fails to really pull it together. This mix, first off, brings too much to the table. The watermelon choices, like INW Watermelon, didn’t create an accurate nor tasty top note. It feels far too rindy and natural (in a bad way). This is then pulled lower by the watery strawberry base, that fights to show its face in the recipe. And the addition of INW Dragonfruit / FA Raspberry does nothing to the recipe except water it down further. It needs a lot of work, but most of all, an identity, to score anything more than average.

Final Score:

2 / 5


Gachatay – Sharkleberry Finn

Yep, the 90's are back baby

Remember all those great kool-aid flavors growing up as a kid. This is was one that I liked a lot, but haven't thought of until a friend mentioned it. I went out and got a few packs to see if I could get a recipe out of it, and here it is.
This isn't anything fancy, it's a simple 3 fruit profile but they were made for each other. Once I figured out the actual drink, it was just a matter of finding the right combo of orange and strawberry...then hitting the correct balance.
The orange sits on top and blends with the strawberry through the vape with a light banana note on the back. It's a nice juicy mix that's full of flavor. Creating a fruit body isn't always an easy task, you can end up with a thin recipe that's all top notes. The banana cream helps solve that by creating a nice base for the others to sit on and the juicy strawberry adding a wonderful dose of moisture that wets your mouth. If you liked this kool-aid, or love a good fruit mix I suggest giving this a shot. It's well balanced and you can taste each layer individually.
You can S&V this one, but I find a solid 24-48 steep gives the banana time to get in it's role and the orange will tone down a bit.

Enjoy 😋

Review: This week we take a random victim, so I chose award winner Gachatay’s Sharkleberry Finn recipe (nominated from the chat). This mix aims to recreate a childhood drink, a Kool-aid blend that goes by the same name. While I haven’t had this drink, vaping this mix immediately brought out feelings of nostalgia – it’s a flavor I’ve had before but can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s a citrusy, sweet, and bright blend, with light tropical notes. It’s like bubblegum, meets berry, meets orange. An odd mix, but tasty nonetheless. Of course the mix is brilliantly balanced, with no one flavor added that doesn’t have a purpose. But I do wish it was far, far more saturated. Kool-aid is a blast you in the face type profile, and this is far too soft for it to be called Kool-aid. Overall, it’s hella tasty.

Final Score:

3 / 5

Review: Joe Roots brings us his very odd, lightly floral but fruity, citrus blend mix. This mix takes the base of FW Blood Orange, infuses it with the odd, yet natural FLV Pink Guava, and adds a light Violet note to it, to create this “purple” like profile with fun flavor with a ton of intrigue. It’s truly hard to describe, but “purple citrus” is probably an accurate representation. It’s an ambitious profile, and I love to reward ambition. The issue I have with it, is that it’s a bit too vague. Even Joe states he’s not sure what it is. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I would love to have some sort of goal to the recipe. Meaning, I’d love it to tell a story, or have some type of goal to achieve. If it’s goal is to be vague, then it succeed. But I think going back and figuring out what to “do” with this profile will help it tremendously. Overall, just vape it. It’s really interesting and a great showcase of mixing theory.

Final Score:

3.5 / 5
