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:

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)

An attempt at a ginger rum lime drink built around TPA Ginger Ale. Not the best way to go since ginger ale has a heavy vanilla cream going on that is not hidden at this high a percentage. It's good, but a cleaner ginger drink built around FLV Ginger is probably in the future... until then, here is a solid balanced drink that gives you an excuse to use your Gingers

VT mango juice is perfect for this as is has a nectar type juicy mouth feel,
Royal orange is very much like fresh squeeze OJ and has a nice brightness and acts as is more of the top note here
The combination of light rum and Jamaican rum create a slightly spiced warmed finish for this punch

pomagrante was added for a slight grenadine effect
sugar loaf Pineapple sweet less bight pineapple that contrasts some of the brighter top notes of the other citrus
cinamon is added as an accent note that really creates a nice back note with the tropical flavors ( dont knock it till you try it :-) )

A pina colada. WF coconut rum is a great Malibu style rum. The pear is there for sweetness and orange for depth. Vanilla swirl is there to keep the sharp edges at bay. Off the shake the sweetness from the fruits are there and after a few days the coconut really shines.
