A rum top note, but actually boozy.
Used in 149 recipes at an average of 2.499%.
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."

( mango rum punch for Fresho3 fund raiser for the guardians foundation)
Helping one of the hardest working advocates out there NorCal Sickboy. He wanted a nice drink for the beach So @queeryourvape and I decided to help him out!!!
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 :-) )
This is our take on a mango rum punch

Are you ready to ring in the New Years but sick of plain old champagne and dealing with people? Well then take your bubbly to the next level and stay home... problem solved! Not only will your taste buds thank you but you will not have to worry about those pesky police officer's passing out DUI's either! This is a seriously upgraded glass of bubbly. Just add some pineapple juice, and coconut rum then voila! It is just that easy! This is a creamy, sweet, coconut champagne spritzer with hints of rum and pineapple. It is like a vacation in a glass... err vape!
If you want more fizz in your bubbly you can add 1-2% of RF-Soda Base as well (depending on how fizzy you would like it) although you may want to omit the sweetener if you do.

Coquito meaning "Little Coconut" in Spanish is a traditional Christmas drink that originated in Puerto Rico. The coconut-based alcoholic beverage is similar to eggnog, hence it is sometimes called Puerto Rican Eggnog. The mixed drink is made with Puerto Rican rum, coconut milk, coconut cream, and sweetened condensed milk. Other spices and flavoring can be added, such as vanilla, cinnamon. Some versions are made with egg yokes. I work with college who gives me a home made bottle every year and I so look forward to it!!
The combination of WF coconut custard and FLV sweet coconut work to create the coconut milk and cream , the coconut custard being much more cream then any custard and providing more of a top note for the coconut
Some versions of coquito also add egg yokes to the mix so FLV eggnog and PUR condensed milk helps to create some density and volume to this mix
VT light rum is the perfect rum as it does not have any spices or dark notes and has a nice warm boose note on the finish
This mix is relatively sweet feel free to add sweetner of your choice - I would recommend FLV sweetness
NOTES/SUBS: If you want a denser thicker vape, you can substitue WF coconut custard for the custard of your choice., I would recommend FLV custard The brighter coconut top notes will decrease and vape will be denser. PUR condensed milk can be subbed with FLV cream but you will loose some of the inherit sweetness and body the condensed milk provides . The VT light rum can be subbed for WF coconut rum but you loose some of the booze notes that occur on the back end and add an additional top note to the coconut in the mix ( additionally is a thinner flavor)
Rich cinnamon is 1 drop to 30 ml

This is inspired from an online recipe Christmas Punch recipe that I saw, here is the link to actual recipe: https://www.sugarandsoul.co/christmas-punch-recipe/
A combination of of Cranberry, Pomegranate, and and Orange Juice mixed with Sprite, and (or not) Rum. To add the extra little touch, a nice touch of Rosemary adds a special touch.
My first 1 2 3 recipe. I am not a tropical fruit vape fan, but throw some peach in it for this GA Peach, and I might just like it. So this did just hit my fancy.
VT Peach Yogurt This is a yummy fresh peach followed by a creamy yogurt. The peach blends in to give a nice accent and the yogurt helps to create the frozen cocktail feel.
VT Island Dream This is a island inspired cocktail, with hints of tropical fruits, cream, rum & coconut.
VT Light Rum This helps to add an authentic boozy taste to the vape.
I like it as is; however, if you have a sweet tooth, feel free to sweeten to your palate. Also, to create a more authentic Frozen Daiquiri, add some WS-23 at the desired percentage you like.
I myself don't add it to recipes, because I only use about .10% if I use it. This needs to steep for 24 to 48 hours, so the Rum isn't too strong.
At the moment, if you are in the states, the VT Peach Yogurt and VT Island Dream are only available at Chefs or from Vape Train directly.
A twist on a classic cocktail the rum and coke. Sweet cola and vanilla on in the inhale with the rum and mint on the exhale, can be a shake and vape but flavor deepen 3 - 5 days
cola base VT cola is a straight up cola syrup adding the holy vanilla adds some sweetness, spice and pushes that vanilla note up front. The Fizzy shertbet adds that citrus note that is essential to a cuba libre and also gives a slight impression of effervescence
rum I like the combination of VT light rum and FA Jamaican run for a spiced rum
sorbet adds a slight minty cooling and fruity back note that is used as a top note here with the cooling on the exhale
SUBS you can use INW cola which would work pretty well here, FA cola does have a bit of a carbonation and a bit more citrus notes but the syrup is a bit thin so would need a boost - caramel or a cream soda
NOTES: Add sweeter to your liking or a bit more lime if you like that bright pop up top. If you want more cooling I would add a touch of polar blast but the sorbet does add that on the exhale . if you want more Boozieness then bump the VT light rum .
Best vapes at 40 - 60 watts in a RTA/ RDA

Have you tried this recipe?!
Please rate this recipe and comment below! I would LOVE to hear your experience."
This is my version of a Hpnotiq cocktail. TPA-Hpno Type is the blue citrus foundation. The FA-Jamaica Special is a delicious rum flavoring but it lacks the alcohol feel that the VT-Light Rum brings to the mix. The FA-Coconut and INW-Pineapple add a tropical flare to it. The TPA-Ginger Ale helps to lighten it up and then I threw in a splash of VT-Bitters for good measure.
You can also add some sweetener and a cooling agent if you like. Photo was found on Pinterest.
