Setup: Recoil w/ flavor barrel, Dual 12 wrap 24g 3.5mm SS316 @.32 ohms. 60w power, 450F temp limit. Full Cotton Wicks.

Testing: Vape Train Brandy, 1%, 4% and 8%, 60/40 VG/PG base, Steeped 26 days.

Flavor Description: Fruity and boozy brandy.

Suprisingly accurate boozy note here. Actually has a medium brandy type heat, and tastes pretty well fermented and distilled. Sweeter brandy, tastes a bit cheap and funky overall, but hey it actually tastes like brandy. Some light oak barrel-ish astringency and just slightly tannic. Nothing that feels like a char though.

This is fairly fruity. I get a dark fermented grape note sticking out here. The sweetness makes it seem just a bit raisiny. Seems fairly appropriate for a brandy. I maybe pick up an errant hint of vanilla here or there, but it's not overwhelming or distinct enough to be really distracting. Seems to have just a bit of an orange zest at the end of the vape as well.

Unlike some of the other vape train boozes, this seems to be more than just a boozy top. There is some actual body in here. It's not anywhere near thick or dense, but it does a serviceable job of conveying a fuller brandy flavor solo. Again, a bit on the sweet side, but not out of bounds for a brandy flavor.

Off-Flavors: Tastes like a pretty cheap brandy, but nothing outside of the profile.

Throat Hit: Moderate, but it's pretty realistically boozy. Nothing unexpected.

Percentage testing: At 1%, this is a bit odd. Still kind of fermented tasting, but not really boozy. Kind of a sour, fruity bubblegum kind of vibe. That grape is coming through pretty clear here. Lighter flavor overall.

At 4%, definitely tastes more like a brandy and those boozy notes have filled in quite a bit. Still a bit fruity and sweet on balance, but that boozy top end sells the brandy thing fairly well. Seems a bit thin overall.

At 8%, this is a stronger, boozier brandy. That fruit seems more integrated with the liquor base and it's picking up a kind of sugary, raisiny sweetness. Medium body and a boozy punch.

Vape Train suggests mixing with this at 2-5% or standalone at 5-8%. I actually like it quite a bit more on the high side, but it's pretty aggressive and boozy. Just based on these tests, I'd be mixing with this around 3-4% as an accent, or 6% as a primary flavor.

Uses & Pairings: The heavy booziness here kind of limits the applications of this to cocktails. In general, should pair pretty well with citrus, apples, pears, and stone fruit like plums and cherries. Could be interesting paired with FW Pink Champagne to pick up those grape fruity notes. Maybe a bit fruity for any real classic brandy cocktails, but I'd wager this wouldn't make a bad sidecar.

This is boozy and funky enough I'm not coming up with any real applications outside of cocktails. If you wanted more of a cooked brandy note for bakeries or creams, I'd probably just go with FA Brandy.

Second Opinions:

Hey, there's actually a note up on ELR about this. User "Kotsos" writes: "This is closer to INW Brandy than FA Brandy, quite boozy but way more balanced than the INW one (which has bitter off notes and needs extra caution in mixes), it's got warmth and depth, and a very nice brandy/whiskey aftertaste. I can imagine it taking Bourbon flavors up a notch and giving a twist to heavy tobaccos and custards/caramels, I wouldn't pair it with fruit like FA. More notes after I test it in mixes."

Here's the product page from Vape Train. Their description: "This flavour works well in many bakery, dessert, creamy, and candy e-liquid recipes." Maybe less than helpful there.

5 DIY E-Liquid Recipes found


his was based off of a crown royal apple valentines day cocktail. Brandy is used here since there are very few solid cognac flavors that come across as cognac without some hard to avoid off notes.

On the inhale you get nice sweet apple brandy that transitions to with a slight tart lemon berry finish. Best vaped in an RDA at 60 - 70 watts (4.2v) this is a easy all day vape

apple-cranberry and two - apples work to create the cranberry apple fruit juice for this mix. Apple cranberry is just a great tart slight sweet flavor that is perfect for a cocktail mix Two apples has more of a fermented apple similar to a sparkling cider and works with the brandy

bandy has a sweet grape that leans almost dark raisin fruit note with a nice warm boozie . There is also a bit of an orange peel finish. it is ideal for cocktails.

Pomegranate and grenadine create a pretty solid genedeine type of syrup. WF grenadine is thin but has a solid flavor and needs help. FA pomegranate is really close to a solid grenadine so it is used here.

milk and honey works for some body and darker sweetness

Lemon FE is just a solid fresh lemon that will hold up and last in this mix , as many lemons tend to fade. honey Pomelo adds a nice finish to the mix and helps the pomegranate and lemon. f you want a more prominent sour note try a bit of VT lemon sour in addition.

NOTES: FA brandy can be used in place of VT but it does not carry a boozie note but will work nicely here are as well. I like a bit of sweetener with fruit so I added FLV sweetness at .50% . FLV cranberry can be subed for apple - cran for a tarter mix. but I really like that touch of apple in the cran apple.

Inspired by Sangria. Not sure how close it is as I haven't had Sangria in years but it's very fruity with a slight hint of wine.

Sangria is the base for this mix and brandy helps support it since it is a thin flavor and needs some fortifying
Apple filling adds some spice notes, sweetness and body to the mix
Pumpkin pie spice adds some of the additional spice notes
\Persimmon and Blood orange adds some bright top notes in the inhale

So this is a twist on an Amaretto Sour . The story of how armaretto came to be is pretty interesting. I would like to believe it is true In 1525, a Saronno church commissioned artist Bernardino Luini, one of Leonardo da Vinci's pupils, to paint its sanctuary with frescoes. As the church was dedicated to the Virgin Mary, Luini needed to depict the Madonna, but was in need of a model. He found his inspiration in a young widowed innkeeper, who became his model and (in most versions) lover. Out of gratitude and affection, the woman wished to give him a gift. Her simple means did not permit much, so she steeped apricot kernels in brandy and presented the resulting concoction to a touched Luini
VT Brandy, FA marzipan, FA almond and Caramel create the amaretto base for this cocktail.. the combination of fa almond and marzipan is just perfect for this and the brandy adds some depth and bozzie notes. The caramel just adds more dark sweetness and mouth feel that is needed.

INW lemon and VT Lemon sour and VT golden syrup create the sweet and sour mix for an amaretto sour type of beverage. INW lemon is that tart sweet candied lemon along with the bright sourness of the lemon sour . ( NOTEyou can sub with FLV milk and honey 1.75% , LA lemonade 3% and FA lemond Sicily .75% but it does not have that sweet almost candied lemon syrup quality I wanted)

VT blood orange champagne adds that top orange note that is sometimes added to a amaretto sour and some more booze notes

Add sweetener of choice if you like it sweet.. and yeah I do - I use FLV sweetness here around .50

This is a light white sangria that is perfect for the summer. Sangria is a summer drink of wine, mixed fruit, brandy, sugar and a clubs soda or ginger ale
The Ginger ale creates the base for this mix. While the ginger is a weak note it does add some sweetness and adds the impression of the ginger spice at 4 - 5 %
The cranberry apple create the mid note of this mix and blends well. The FLV cranberry apple is a very strong flavor and needs to be used low % but could be boosted a bit more if you want a more prominent cranberry note.

The brandy and Sparkling wine helps to bring that grape booze note forward that is part of sangria along with the blood orange and sorbet to bring that cooling sensation .

The lime and sorbert create that citrus and acid balance to the sweetness of the mix
NOTE: The basil does not have to be added but works really well as a note that is present on the exhale and is similar to what you may experience with mint but slightly sweeter and not as overpowering.
Add sweetner to taste
