A rum top note, but actually boozy.
Used in 236 recipes at an average of 2.438%.
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."

My creation of a Ruby Red Grapefruit Margarita.
I actually started with the frosty base and the Tequila. For this I'm using VTA Sorbet Base because it's basically a frosty cool base and FLV Tequila Agave is just what it says Tequila.
Then for the Cointreau or orange liqueur I'm using VTA Orange Tang and VTA Light Rum mixed with VTA Sugar Cane and Vta Sweet mate which creates a simple sugar syrup. For the grapefruit I'm using VTA grapefruit and VTA Honey Pomelo with VTA Sour Lemon to help boost the citrus notes.
What a time to be alive.. where you don’t have to actually drink alcohol to enjoy a great cocktail but simply can vape one.
tl;dr this is an alcohol infused pear recipe.
My journey to create this recipe started last year when Tom Klark released a winterseries of alcoholic longfills. One of them that changed my mind on boozey vapes forever was Tom Klarks #05 Rum Orangeblossom. I couldn’t believe that the booze in this liquid made me feel warm inside and tricked me into thinking that I took a sip of a fking rum. Whoa.
Soon after I ordered all rum flavorings I could find wanting to recreate what had long become my adv at this point. The new released SSA Bakery Oranges seemed like the perfect starting point but even after countless revisions I never was satisfied with the outcome. The orange was too bright, flv heat wasn’t the warmth I needed, vta light rum didn’t bringt enough boozyness. I didn’t give up but I kicked out the orange and tried my luck with pear instead. Who doesn’t like to vape pear? The taste of a pear is like it’s actually made to be vaped. God I love pears.
What I made back then wasn’t perfect imo but it was okay. I shared that recipe called Tipsy Nashi with my friends from VAPEDIA and they seemed to like it but I was disappointed and stopped working on it for some months. (This was the recipe btw: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/share/47b8f818-86c5-4fd6-94a8-19926d7e6771 )
As soon as the new FLV flavorings arrived at my door I knew that it was time to pick it up again. Pearesto tastes like it’s made to be paired with booze. A sweet, heavy canned pear. Amazing! Also I bought VTA Russian Vodka in the meantime that adds a little bit of the boozyness I was missing from Light Rum. FA Jamaican Special gives the spiced body, Light Rum adds a slightly sweet boozey topnote. FLV Sour Apple adds some tartness that compliments the alcoholic feeling and MB Shape Up Pear simply boosts the pear flavor in all aspects.
If you need even more booze you can try to up the Vodka but it seems to mute the other flavorings and becomes medicinal at some point.
If you’re a fan of spicyness try to add 0.2% of FA Cardamom. That’s a nice little twist.
FA Jamaican can also be upped up to 1% but it’s a bit too sweet and heavy for me at that point.
This recipe is probably still not perfect but it will never be. There’s always something you can change and I decided to make it public now at version 20 or something since I really enjoy it and wanna hear your thoughts!
Developed on Vapefly Holic and Cthulhu 1928. (MTL)
This was made for mixers club originally but i think it deserves to be public because its just so smooth.
The rum is present without being too in your face and the apples are balanced well with it. FLV pumpkin spice because @wolfwheeler was right.
So I’ve been wanting to create a tobacco type recipe now for months but tbh I’ve just not had time,plus when it comes to tobacco I’m a fussy fucker!!! So whatever I created needed to be somewhat subtle and not 2 ashy. 🤮 I believe I’ve created something pretty special here! It really is lovely and is great off the shake. Tatanka and Soho are a match made in tobacco heaven and with the light undertones of rum,raisin and caramels,finished with cream it’s pretty bloody delicious if I do say so myself. Please give it a mix up and leave me your feedback,it would be greatly appreciated. Stay safe guys 💙

DripDrop wanted to see what Slasha could come up with, so here it goes. It is a citrusy cocktail using rum as the base. I wanted to lighten it up a little, something that could be vaped in the coming warmer months for a nice refresher.
Lime wedge is higher than normal for FLV, but it fades quite a bit after 3-5 days. It SHOULD fade out enough to be a much better mid-note once it settles down. The lime is there to help boost the fade from the wedge, but keeping a slightly more "fresh" hint to it.
A lot of the flavors are slightly sweeter in nature, sweeten to taste :)
This was my entry to the Developed summertime challenge. A creamy Pina Colada, I was able to create the original with a little advice from NaChef in the form of his recommendation of LB Coconut Milk. It really made a huge difference in the creaminess of the mix. During the airing of the the live show NaChef gave an awesome review of the recipe. Since that time I have messed with the profile several times. Including lowering the Coconut milk way down because after around a month of steeping it took over and ruined the mix. Also during the show NaChef mentioned that he likes to use MB Funky Pineapple with INW Pineapple and I have to agree with him, even though Cap Golden Pineapple was what I had at the time MB Funky Pineapple is a much better choice. I kept most of the original flavorings aside from MB Funky Pineapple and I dropped the Fa Menthol. I've had this recipe private on ELR since just after the challenge. And with Spring 2021 coming I figured I'd add it here for everyone to enjoy.
Good as a SNV but better after a few days.
This is our Christmas gift to you! We think this is one of the best Eggnog recipes we've attempted. It's super thick, eggy, sweet, with a touch of rum. The perfect recipe for the Holidays! If you prefer a less sweet mix, feel free to lower the sweetener, but for this type of profile, we suggest trying FLV Sweetness at 1.5% first.
