e liquidWhat are the best e liquids?

Defining the best e liquids might be one of our most challenging tasks to date. That is of course because e liquid (at least for the purpose of this review) is essentially a flavor of vapor. And we all certainly have different views about what taste good and what doesn’t.

In other words, we’re going into this article fully knowing that flavors are subjective. Nevertheless, we’ll do our best to provide some of our favorite, trustworthy & time tested best e liquid options.

For those of you looking for a more analytical approach, in a more objective or statistical manner, we’ve put together a detailed e liquid comparison table for easily comparing & contrasting the best e liquid flavors. From e liquid brand, flavor, price, nicotine percentage, PG/VG ratio and bottle sizing, you can pick the best e liquid for your style of vaping.

With that being said, we’ll be breaking down the best tobacco, menthol, dessert & gourmet flavors on the market today as well as e liquid brands that we trust & recommend. (& if you’re curious, nearly all of them are for normal vaporizers, devices or electronic cigarettes that the majority of us use everyday.)

Also, if you happen to be in the market for a new e cig, we encourage you to read our best e cigs article.

2. Blu Tobacco E Liquid

blu tobacco e liquid
Blu Tobacco E Liquid is surprising one of our absolute favorite flavors. We say surprisingly, because we’ve been critical of Blu’s electronic cigarettes themselves – due to poor battery life and general faultiness. However, one thing that Blu got absolute right and in fact knocked it out of the park, is their Blu Tobacco e liquid flavor. Blu didn’t even offer their ‘flavors’ in the form of e liquid for years – they simply sold disposable e cigs and rechargeable e cigs that used cartomizers. Blu Tobacco e liquid is incredibly smooth, completely satisfying & has a great aftertaste. Long time tobacco cigarette smokers may find the flavor to be a bit on the ‘light’ side, but many even long time menthol smokers will find Blu Tobacco to be their new perfect all day vape. Blu Tobacco is available in a 10 mL size only, features 40/60 & 30/70 PG/VG Ratios & is available in 1.4% & 2.4% nicotine options respectively.

Compared to the subtle sweetness of Halo’s coveted Tribeca flavor, Turkish Tobacco offers an equally satisfying ‘all-day-vape’ type smoothness but is more inline with traditional tobacco cigarette smokers who are aiming for that classic ‘albeit modernized’ vapor throat hit and overall taste. For us, our favorite Tribeca can be swapped out with Turkish Tobacco at any moment and not cause any general disdain whatsoever – which is saying a lot! Halo Cigs Turkish Tobacco is available in 30 mL and 10 mL bottles, both 50/50 & 70/30 PG/VG Ratios and features 0%, .15%, .3%, .6%, 1.2%, 1.8%, & 2.4% nicotine options.

For some of you, this will sound way too sweet and for others this will have your mouth watering starting now and through the checkout process. Both of which are certainly appropriate responses to such a polarizing flavor. Just bare in mind that this isn’t an ‘in-between’ flavor, this is a pure dessert flavor – in other words, if you’re looking for purely sweet, you found it with Mad hatter and specifically the ‘I Love Donuts Too’ flavor.

Either way, if you haven’t tried this flavor, you need to stop everything you’re doing and order it up right now. You will not be disappointed.

21. Five Pawns Grandmaster E Liquid

five pawns grandmaster e liquid
Five Pawns Grandmaster E Liquid is in a class all of it’s own. You’ve probably heard of Five Pawns E Liquid and if you haven’t, we urge you to familiarize yourself with the brand. In our minds, Five Pawns essentially developed it’s own category of flavors, of which we have coined ‘gourmet’. Why gourmet? Well, when you describe a flavor profile this way: ‘smooth, creamy, rich peanut butter and banana cream, drizzled with velvety caramel, creating a multi-layered and savory symmetry’, it only seemed right. You see, Five Pawns doesn’t just make dessert e liquid, it’s in fact gourmet. Sure, some of you are looking solely for e liquid flavors that you’d consider for being an ‘all-day-vape’. We respect that, however, Grandmaster is available in 0, .3, .6, 1.2 & 1.8 percent nicotine by volume.

22. Five Pawns Castle Long E Liquid

Castle Long, like all Five Pawns e liquid, is made directly in sunny California. While Castle Long’s flavor description is overflowing with sweetness, it’s incredibly important to realize that Five Pawns is very meticulous in terms of mixing their gourmet flavors in a complex way that yes does result in a sweet flavor, but not overpoweringly so. In other words, while it is certainly sweet, it’s well balanced and a complete joy to vape. Castle Long is available in 0, .3, .6, 1.2 & 1.8 percent nicotine by volume.

23. Ripe Vapes Monkey Snack E Liquid

ripe vapes monkey snack e liquid

Ever heard of a peanut butter & banana sandwich? Consider this the e liquid version of that secret delight. Monkey Snack is available in .6 & 1.2 percent nicotine by volume.

24. KILO Ice Cream Sandwich E Liquid

kilo ice cream sandwich e liquid
KILO Ice Cream Sandwich E Liquid is one of the best kept secrets in the vaping world. More accurately, the KILO e liquid brand itself is one of the vaping industries best kept secrets. While basically all KILO e liquids are worthy of one of your coveted atomizers or cartomizers, we chose the Ice Cream Sandwich flavor as our first KILO e liquid to bring to your gourmet seeking attention for good reason. KILO’s Ice Cream Sandwich is one of the latest flavors released in their ‘White Series’. When you vape Ice Cream Sandwich, the first think that will come to mind is literally the classic ice cream sandwich that we all grew up loving – what with the cookie wafers and creamy vanilla ice ream in the middle. KILO’s Ice Cream Sandwich is available in 0, .3 & .6 percent nicotine by volume.

25. KILO Cinnamon Roll E Liquid

kilo cinnamon roll e liquid
KILO Cinnamon Roll E Liquid could easily be ranked in our top two or three best gourmet e liquid flavors. Nevertheless, KILO’s Cinnamon Roll flavor rounds out our top 5 gourmet flavors respectively. Like the Ice Cream Sandwich flavor noted above, Cinnamon Roll comes from KILO’s ‘White Series’ (which frankly doesn’t distinguish itself from the ‘Black Series’ in any apparent way – seems to just be a marketing category angle). And yes, you guessed it, this flavor tastes exactly like a sweet, warm, fluffy, freshly baked & delicious cinnamon roll. For us, this kind of flavor profile doesn’t lend itself as an ‘all-day’ or ‘every-day’ vape. However, and a strong however, it is SO amazing that we view this flavor as like a weekend morning or afternoon break from the mundane. KILO’s Cinnamon Roll is available in 0, .3 & .6 percent nicotine by volume.

E Liquid Buying Advice

PG/VG Ratios

pg vg e liquid ratios

Another important note to consider is that e liquid flavor can vary greatly depending on the type of device being used. For example, while a particular flavor might taste great while using a certain electronic cigarette or tank – it could taste completely differently when used in a different system. The reason for this is mostly due to the mechanics of certain vaping devices. Most importantly, that some devices, e cigs or tanks operate better (deliver the full & actual flavor of a particular e liquid) with certain PG/VG ratios.

PG Definition: Propylene Glycol – Flavor & Throat Hit.

VG Definition: Vegetable Glycerin – Vapor Production.

As a general rule of thumb, the happy medium for all vaping devices is an e liquid that features a 50/50 (PG-VG) blend. This is compared to other popular ratios such as a 70/30 & 30/70 (PG-VG) blends.

Another rule of thumb when shopping for e liquids is as followed. Most normal or typical vaping systems, devices or electronic cigarettes operate best from 50/50 blends. However, if you have a more advanced setup (ie a tank utilizing rebuildable coils or batteries that could power the space station), you can begin to meddle with 30/70 blends – create huge amounts of vapor while maintaining great flavor.

PG/VG Ratio Defintion: The delicate balance of a great throat hit yet high vapor production.

Nicotine Percentages

nicotine e liquid percentages

Really the only other consideration related to choosing the best e liquid is nicotine level or percentage. This is again a completely subjective topic, but know that in our experience the nicotine level or percentage hasn’t effected the flavor itself. On the other hand, nicotine levels greatly effect what’s known as the ‘throat-hit’. The industry standards are generally 0% nicotine all the way around 4%, with the happy medium randomly landing at roughly 1.8% – 2.4%.

On a side note (we always like to point this out), for those of you looking to use vaping to stop ‘smoking’ all together, choosing the right e liquid is an ever important step. For example, by choosing an e liquid that you not only love the flavor of, but that has a wide range of nicotine percentages, you can start high (say 2.4%) and slowly order bottles with less and less nicotine by volume. This essentially gives your body the time it needs to adjust to your changing intake.

Nicotine Percentage: The percentage of nicotine in an e liquid mixture by volume.

All Day Vapes

Again, flavor is a very subjective thing. Just know that we try to accommodate newbies, the happy medium crowd & life long smokers making the switch.
