Signature flavors, MLB type, DIY flavor review

2% flavor added to 50/50 mix of pg/vg at 8mg nicotine.  It smelled so good, that I went ahead and added nic in the test batch.

So far, this MLB type flavor by Signature flavors is on the interesting side.  Note, that I have only made it 2 days ago, and this really needs to steep for a week from what I heave read.  So far, it comes closest to what I have been searching for.  My Marlboro flavor that I get from the flea market…   I am not sure where they get theirs from, or what the real flavor is, so I am slowly searching for the base flavor.

Off the bat, I notice it is lighter in color than what I normally vape.  Actually it is light yellow, like urine…  However, some e liquids do get darker as they steep, but it is still yellow.  Also, I only tried a 2% blend as I have been gagged by too many tobacco flavors at 5%.  I will revisit this review next week with an update after it steeps for a week, s0 I can give you the scoop then as well, but for first impressions, here you go.

When mixing this flavor, you definitely smell the tobacco smell.  So far so good.  It smells a lot like my other stuff.  Ok, so I mixed it at 2% flavor, at a 50/50 pg/vg mix, and let it sit for 2 days before trying it.   The first vape is always scarey, so I use extreme caution.  Without really steeping long, it has a very interesting flavor to it.  Not quite what I am looking for, but who knows what next week may bring.  It has a very nice tobacco flavor on the inhale, and I read that someone thought the woody flavor was along the cedar side – I have to agree with that.   When I vaped and let some out to breath in my nose, I can pick up a nice nutty blend in it as well.  I am not sure, but I am thinking perhaps a hazel nut, or perhaps an almond with I don’t know,,, chocolate or carmel.

It puts out a nice cloud of vapor, and the vapor smells nice too.  Some flavors really smell bad in the air, but this one is quite pleasant.  I also notice, that after vaping it for a few minutes, that there is a lingering, nutty after taste hanging around.  Not sweet or sour, just like if you sat and ate some hazel nuts or almonds. I wish I could figure out which one it is.

Over all, first impressions are looking good.  This is a very good flavor at 2% with no real steeping time.  I may make up a 3% or 4% batch to sit while this steeps and try them both next week.  It is interesting as a stand along flavor, although it is not what I was looking for at all.  It is the closest I have come though, so perhaps it is used in the base with some other flavors added to it.  I will hop out of here for now, and make up the stronger batches to see how they go.

Stay tuned, as I will post back next week with more on this MLB type, by Signature (The Perfumers Apprentice) brand flavor.

Ok, a revisit of the 2% after it steeped for 10 days.

The flavor is actually very much the same as before.  Nothing really came out of letting it steep for a while.   It is a very interesting flavor, but not quite what I was looking for.  It is however, the closest that I have came so far, so that is encouraging at least.

It has a real nice bold tobacco smell to it, if you smell the liquid, when you open it.  When vaping, you still get that nice tobacco flavor, with a slight bit of a perfume smell and a slight hint of sweetness in there.  On the inhale, you get that full tobacco flavor, and on the exhale, that hint of the perfume comes out.   The odd thing, is you can’t smell that perfume smell at all when smelling the bottle.   It is a nice tobacco flavor, a lot of you may really enjoy.  I like it a lot, but I am in search of something that I can’t seem to find anywhere but the flea market, and that is unsettling, as I have no idea what is really in it, or where it is actually being made.

1% flavor test:

Ok, now I have the flavor at 1% and 4% to see how this flavor does.  Crossing my fingers that I don’t gag myself.  LOL

This is very interesting at 1%.  I thought the flavor would wash out more, but it is still quite nice.  On the lighter side of course, but still quite good.  It has a little more of the sweetness being pronounced, but the tobacco flavor is still pretty rich and super smooth now.  Also, I do not notice the perfume smell or taste to it at this point.  This is turning out to be pretty decent of a flavor.  I can’t wait to see how the 4% batch changes the flavor.

4% flavor test:

Well, I am quite disappointed with it at 4%. No two ways about it.  At 4%, the rich tobacco flavor is missing completely.  Go figure..  However, to replace it comes a sweet, kinda lemon flavor.  Kinda like the taste of lemon drops, and that perfume smell is back with a vengeance.   The funny thing, is that when you smell the bottle of  e-juice, the perfume smell is gone, and the tobacco smell is real strong.  But at 4%, on a 2.0 ohm atty with the volts set at 4.0, it tastes way different than it smells for sure.   I notice off the bat, that the vapor production was much better with the 1 and 2% batches than with the 4% also.    I turned my voltage down as low as my ego twist will go, (3.2 volts) and it still tastes like a lemon drop with a hint of tobacco in it.

It looks like the 4% batch will hit the sink drain as soon as I am done typing this out, and I will vape the heck out of this stuff since 1-2% works great.   That little bottle of flavoring will go a long ways at 2% mixing.  And it is a real nice, full flavored, great smelling tobacco that will blend with any other flavor you may want, like apple, cherry, blue berry, etc.

Over all, I say this MLB type, from Signature  (Perfumers Apprentice) is a real good tobacco flavor. Just make sure to use your e-liquid calculator to get the percentages right, and keep it around 2% for best results.  I use the e-juice me up, e-juice calculator from  http://breaktru.com   because it is easy to use, and makes saving your recipes a snap.

Happy Vaping!
