A rum top note, but actually boozy.
Used in 166 recipes at an average of 2.457%.
Setup: Recoil w/ flavor barrel, Dual 12 wrap 24g 3.5mm SS316 @.31 ohms. 60w power, 450F temp limit. Full Cotton Wicks.
Testing: Vape Train Light Rum, 1%, 4% and 8%, 60/40 VG/PG base, Steeped 18 days.
Flavor Description: A rum top note, but actually boozy.
The rum here feels maybe a bit darker and sweeter than a white rum. I'd probably call it a golden rum or repasado if you're feeling fancy. There's a lighter fruity caramel type note as opposed to just hot booze like you'd get with a real light rum. Again, getting fancy, I'd try to spin as something like a sherry cask age as that fruitiness definitely has something vaguely grape-ish to it. Actually has a moderate booziness, giving a pretty clear impression of an alcohol while not being particularly aggressive.
Relatively top heavy flavor, with a whole lot more going on in the top notes than in the base of the flavor. Some sweeter, lightly caramel type body here but it's pretty thin. Even at higher percentages, I'm still getting some of my testing mix coming through. Kind of unsatisfying as a single flavor rum vape.
Fairly thin overall, and you really only get some of those hotter rum notes and some sweetness in mixes. While not cloying by itself, it will definitely sweeten up a mix.
Off-Flavors: Not a bunch of body here, maybe a bit sweet for a light rum.
Throat Hit: Moderate, but it's a booze and feels pretty appropriate.
Percentage testing: At 1%, this isn't really working for me. More light, sweet fruitiness than a distinct rum note. Very thin.
At 4%, I'm getting a pretty solid sweet rum top note. Lightly fruity, with a light caramel body. Tastes boozy.
At 8% I'm really not getting any more booze than 4%. The body is just a bit thicker, but still feels a bit undersaturated and thin.
Vape Train suggests mixing with this at 2-5% and using it standalone from 5-9%. Just based on these tests, I'd probably be using this around 4-5%. I'm not really getting a fuller rum or more satisfying booze effect than that higher. Definitely an accent flavor as a solo rum.
Uses & Pairings: Without any backup, this comes across like a splash of a fairly mellow rum in a cocktail mix. Using just the light rum, I'd wager you could get pretty close to a rum and coke or mojito where the rum isn't really being pushed around by super aggressive fruity flavors.
You know that thing where FA Jamaican Rum is delicious but not really boozy? Yeah, this fixes that. All of the rum's I've tried so far don't really have a pronounced booziness. This does, and it pretty much slots on top of darker, heavier rum flavors if thats your thing. Seriously, 4% of this on top of 2% FA Jamaican Rum and you're basically in cocktail town. It may now be possible to make a boozy pina coloda. We talking mai tais, dark and stormies, hurricanes, daquiris... really, the sky is the limit here in terms of cocktail applications.
You want to go darker? Like a spiced rum? Starting adding some TPA Brown Sugar or FLV Caramel for some extra sweetness and depth on top of that FA Jamaican Rum and start adding in whatever spices you dig like cloves, cinnamon, and some extra vanilla. The hangover isn't included.
I wouldn't really be using this outside of cocktail applications. Most of the rum going into bakeries, custards, and candies has most of the booze driven off by heating... and there are better options for that.
Here's the product page from Vape Train. Their description: " versatile flavour that mimics the taste of a light rum in e-liquid recipes. This rum flavour pairs well with, desserts, bakery, creams, custard and other beverage & cocktail e-liquid flavours."

In this episode, we wanted to make our own unique tropical cocktail using watermelon, lime, and orange. With the addition of VT Blood Orange Champagne and VT Light Rum, this mix turned out to be a wonderfully refreshing watermelon "Daiquiri" type cocktail.

WS23 Optional 0.25%
This is really good mix and even has a lot of the authentic taste from the original cocktail. WS23 isn’t for everyone but it really brings this vape to the next level of authenticity
Please see below for cocktail recipe.
6oz coconut water
2oz Capt Morgan Loco Nut
1/4oz Blue Curacao liqueur
Mixed this up for the Mixin Vixens Challenge for Loco Unicorn and here's why I went this way. I followed a drink recipe for this one and one of the main notes is the Captain Morgan Loconut which is described as a rum, coconut milk with spices (nutmeg for me and why I added the eggnog, FA Milk, rum and coconut ).
The next hint we get from the real recipe (https://mixthatdrink.com/loco-unicorn-loconut-cocktail/) is berry flavor grenadine (hence grenadine) and orange flavored blue curaco (hence Blood Orange FA) Another hint is it makes a great berry mix (Forest fruit) and then the glass is rimmed with sugar (Super sweet)
This is my take on the recipe :)
Frangelico is a Hazelnut Liqueur with sweet bright notes of vanilla and hazelnut, and deep warm cocoa and coffee undertones. The texture Is on the side on creamy and rich but not thick.
Descriptionof the Liqueur:
Pronounced but delicate hazelnut.
Flavour with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate.
Smooth long finish, with fragrant back-note.
The richness of Frangelico is rooted in its origins. Made from the aromatic Tonda Gentile hazelnuts found in the Italian region of Piedmont, they are combined with coffee, cocoa and vanilla distillate and extracts for a sweet yet balanced golden elixir.
A delicious baked banana sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon, covered in light rum and served HOT.
This is really good - check it out with coffee
Kahlua Coffee-flavored liqueur is made with the finest 100% Arabica coffee beans. These quality beans are then mixed with sugar cane rum, vanilla bean, and notes of caramel.
They combine perfectly to make an easy-sipping liqueur.
Delicious description so i decided to serve it over a sweet melted vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
Took VTA Coffee Liqueur up to 8% to make it as thick as possible and added 2% VTA Light Rum to give an extra kick of booziness and rum flavour.
Light rum also has a nice caramelic note that plays wonderfully in the mix.
This is a spot on Moito - for me it s just the perfect mix of sweetness, lime and mint
This was mixed for the PRIDE fundraiser, for the Ali Forney center for LBGTQ homeless youth on Fresh03 channel https://youtu.be/5Xa1eZqfwK8
The base for this mix is lemon lime soda - the lemon helps to boost the lime in the mix and add a bit of sweet tartness
The combination of person lime which has some intrinsic sweetness and body added to the bight slightly tart lime Tahity creates a really nice full real lime
I wanted a sweet mint and the combination of INW mint and spearmint provides a realistic sweet mint
VT light rum is the only rum I would use in this mix, I did not want to add coconut rum or a spiced rum I wanted the lime and mint to stand up and the rum to come out on the finish
Raw sugar works really well as the base sweetness ( NOTE: I added .05% cap sweetener to help lift the lime in this mix)
