Overview

This flavoring offers a really nice cantaloupe flavor that's almost creamy. Very smooth flavor, semi sweet, nice cantaloupe. It's perfectly ripe; I don't detect any of the green parts close to the rind, or rind itself. It does get a little sharp on the throat if used too high. In trying this at a single flavor at 2% and in a mix at 1%, those seem like good places to start with it. The throat was a little sharper than I would like at both of those %s, so if you want to avoid a sharp throat, I might suggest bringing them a touch lower (1.5% & 0.75% respectively).
One thing that's interesting about this flavoring is how well it accents fruit and cream mixes, particularly "orange" fruits (mango, apricot, peach, etc.). It does a great job at bringing a non-citrus "orange" accent to a mix that is smooth and velvety. Experimentations with Mango Lassi found the cantaloupe to round out the mango nicely while also lending some additional creaminess that it needed without any unwanted dairy notes (used @ 0.5%).
