Jax Mint
« on: September 20, 2017, 01:58:05 PM »
Well got round to making this up this morning. 3mg nic, 70% VG, 8% flavour,  and being vaped in a doggystyle tank, new coil and wick, 0.4ohms and running at 18w.

OK the flavour description on Chefs Flavours website says this:

Light. Cool. Refreshing. Home grown garden mint bunched and blended together with a creamy vanilla custard base.

Hmmm I agree with some of it, yes its cool and refreshing, but the mint tastes quite sweet. Probably because its wrapped up in this same sticky sweet flavour that all Jax flavours are supposed to be based on.... Custard. I don't get it, I just don't get the taste of custard when I vape any Jax flavours  :no2: 

Maybe I'm looking for a Birds custard taste, that just isn't there. Anyhow... there is a creamy sweet background taste, which kind of makes this taste like a creamy mint humbug.

There is a mild vanilla back taste, not too overpowering which is good, as I'm normally not keen on vaping strong vanilla flavours.

So it's minty (very minty actually for saying its not even been steeped yet) and very sweet and creamy, on the exhale occasionally I get a little salty twist, but I have to be looking for it. And its an extremely smooth vape. I actually can't see this 30ml bottle lasting long enough to steep for much more than a few days.. it will be gone! Vaped!  :yes:

It might be a nice flavour to mix with fudge and see what I get. Although I can't see it mixing well with some fruits as its just too creamy, maybe sweeter ones would be ok, such as peach or strawberry  :think:

Me likey, would probably give it a 7 out of 10.

I will update in a few days if theres much change to the flavour while its steeping.

Great review Julie no the custard flavour is a real homemade custard not a birds or ambrosia tin custard maybe that's where you are getting mixed up but yes if left to steep for a few weeks the mint would settle down and the custard would be more prominent

The vanilla is coming through already, which is rather a shame actually, if it comes through too much it will end up being binned.

What % do you mix Jax at Zim?

Mostly 10% now Julie I used to mix it lower so I am either getting used to jax flavours or my tastebuds are shot

Lol, I think you do get used to some flavours. Ive done 10% before, and dropped it now as 10% when steeped can get a bit sickly.

Yeah I can believe that Zim, I have 4 tanks, 3 with jax in and one with Nutzilla, and I have to say I'm kind of sick of sweet flavours today. Think I need to empty a couple out and get some fruits in  :laughtears:

Ok came back to this tonight and unfortunately the vanilla is going to be too much.... The mint is just lovely, but the vanilla  :yuk: I wonder if it would better mixed at 5%.
I really wanted this to work! lol....
