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.

Second Opinions:

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."

The term "perfect storm" is nearly synonymous with "worst-case scenario", although the latter carries more of a hypothetical connotation.
This drink is pretty much the opposite of its name: Tasty, aromatic, refreshing and something special. Originates from the classic "Jamaican Mule", also seen as "Jamaican Storm"

Well-balanced drink of Ginger Beer, spiced rum and lemon juice, served on the rocks.

"Weird show!" you mumble, sitting back in your car on your way home. "This weather is killing me and I'm dying for a drink!"
You keep your eyes open, hoping to find a restaurant, bar or at least a gas station to buy some refreshments. But the recent events barely left any business alive.
"What's that?" You squint your eyes, not sure whether you're hallucinating or you really just saw a flickering neon sign, advertising a bar. You slam the break and jerk the steering wheel to take an immediate u-turn. The highway is empty, as usual these days, so there's nobody that could be bothered by your maneuver.
As you get closer, you feel more and more positive about the existence of that neon sign, until you finally reach the parking lot of a rundown bar with barricaded windows. But you hear some music from the inside, so you enter the taproom. Nobody is around, only the bartender listening to some music and polishing glasses.
You take a look at the menu - "Is this some kind of joke?" you ask, pointing at the sheet of paper that contained - ONE - drink.
"Nope, take it or leave it, bud..." the barkeeper mumbles.
Who would even call a drink a "Perfect Storm", especially at these circumstances? But do you really have a choice? During the last weeks you learnt to lower your standards and that being too picky usually ends in getting nothing at all.
"Alright, Perfect Storm please, cant't get any worse, can it?" The bartender nods, throws some ice cubes and a slice of lemon into a glass before pouring over some murky brown liquid. He hands it over, nods again and continues to polish his glasses.

You take a smell, breathe a sigh of relief and gulp down a huge, thirsty sip. The bartender just renamed the good old "Jamaican Mule".
After a few more sips you enjoy the heat of the alcohol flowing through your body. You enjoy the warmth and spiciness of Ginger Beer, paired with Caribbean Spiced Rum, juicy lime, a slice of cucumber and the refreshing coldness of the ice cubes.

Ingredients

  • VT Fizzy Sherbet Brings in the fizzy mouthfeel of Ginger Beer.
  • TPA Ginger Ale Basis for the Ginger Beer. Nice ginger note.
  • VT Ginger Root Adds more ginger to the Ginger Beer, especially on the spicy side that differs Ginger Beer from Ginger Ale
  • FLV Heat Does not add taste but turns the Ginger Beer into a spicy and slightly hot version, like brands as Thomas Henry or Bundaberg
  • FE Lemon Refreshing lemon taste that pairs well with both, ginger and rum.
  • VT Light Rum Basis for the rum component, especially on the lighter notes and slight boozy notes. More of a white rum than a spiced rum.
  • FA Jamaican Special Caribbean Mule is usually mixed with spiced rum. This one helps to bring in the spice.
  • VT Russian Vodka Adds more booziness for more authentic rum experience
  • CAP Cucumber Cucumber usually is a part of the cocktail. Only in for a very slight taste, mostly for a more watery mouthfeel.
  • WS-23 You don't like lukewarm drinks, do you? Works perfectly fine together with FLV Heat.

Additional Notes

  • I did also try FLV Citrus Soda instead of Fizzy Sherbet. Works but not as good. Feel free to lower or remove the Heat in case you don't like the mouthfeel. Doesn't contribute taste, only makes the ginger more authentic.

A complex mixture of rum, with sweet peaches, a hint of strawberry with a cake topping. It is a fantastic flavor that comes off as a bit of a peach cobbler.
This has to be one of my favorite Five Pawns flavor profiles. Maybe because I love a peach cobbler. I started with my peach blend VTA White Peach is a mildly sweet peach and with the addition of Shisha Peach it definitely becomes a great peach flavor. VTA Apricot adds a slight tartness to the peach combo and VTA Sweet Strawberry and VTA Light Rum adds an extra punch to the peaches.
Next for the cobbler top I used VTA Cinnamon Donut which is a very unique type of cake not quite a donut not quite a cake. It also brings a cinnamon note. I used VTA Pudding Base to push the cake aspect in this. VTA Raw Sugar is my binder in here as it is basically a light brown sugar and aids in the punch of the peaches and the flavor of the cake topping.
For a alternative version see my other version of this recipe.

Ok this is like the fifth iteration of this recipe. For starters, the jamaican rum from tfa was just not doing it at all so I took it back to contemplation and just went back to scratch. I am not very experienced with VT Light Rum but from what I am getting from it is what was missing the whole time. You get that nice rum feel from the mix and the FM Pineapple and INW Cactus come together to create this slightly stick yet fruity feel. Off the shake it is delish after a week it will be even better.

(Note that the light rum may disappear awhile.)

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.

Story

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. Thank you @SteveTC for that suggestion! 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: Tipsy Nashi)

Ingredients

As soon as the new FLV flavorings arrived at my door I knew that it was time to pick it up again.

  • FLV 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.

  • VTA 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.

Additional Notes

  • If you need even more booze you can try to up the Vodka but above 1% 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!

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.

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.
