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."

So ... Expanding on my Purple Haze recipe... i have gotten my vape mail in and my absinthe from TPA ... so the Delosi Black Licorice is out (LOL)... and i have changed my sweetener to FLV and decided to layer the FLV Sweet coconut w/FA Coco Coconut and layer the VT Light Rum w/ FA Jam Rhum ..hoping for a more authentic flavor and really make this Drink style vape a serious contender .... I hope everyone who tried the original recipe enjoys the upgrade and Please give feedback .... thanks
Side Note : VT Recommends 4 to 5 days steep on the Russian Vodka ..however i think it will be ok as a S&V recipe.
Also if you choose to cool this recipe down I recommend ws23 and mix to taste.. I use 1 drop per 10 ml
A mythical Drink ..From My days on the "Rock" Okinawa Japan.....This Drink is originally made with Absinthe, which i do not own the flavor for..hence why the Delosi Black licorice is in this recipe(if i had another black licorice i would have used that instead of delosi) but so goes life.... this drink would knock you down if you had more than 2 lol... it was that good .. AnyHoot
i chose WF S&S purple drink- due to its unique drink like flavor..and the main body of this profile ...
VT- Light rum & Russian vodka make up the alcohol portion(Minus the alcohol)..
FLV Sweet Coconut to compliment the Lt Rum and make it more of a Malibu style rum...
Cap Golden Pineapple to add that tropical flair to it ..
and the coup de gras.... Delosi Black licorice to give it that absinthe like taste...
this is still a work in progress and as i get more appropriate flavors i will consolidate this down to a more suitable and flavorful recipe.
this is a summer time beverage that is based off of a baja blast flavor profile. it is a shout out to all the GRADS !!!
LB Blue rasp is the perfect Blue raspberry for this flavor profile and provides that distinct blue note that is characteristic for this profile
The creaming soda, lime and blood orange provide that citrus contrast to the sweet blue raspberry
The rum is well RUM .. and provides some base notes and depth to this profile
The sorbet adds some additional citrus notes and the needed cooling sensation for an iced cocktail

Italian rum cake is a cake that is traditionally made around the holidays. it is a dense yellow cake with vanilla patisserie filling. and chocolate ganache filling Very often the base of the cake is wet from the cup ( or more if my family is making it ) of rum.
Cake base - I used fluffy white cake, nonna's cake and some Custard. This combination of fluffy white and custard creates a thick dense cake with a slight citrus note from the nonna's cake
Rum - There is a about a cup of rum in these cakes it is very prominent... so i need a rum that would stand up in this mix - VTA light rum is more like a golden medium bodied boozie rum that is probably the best rum I have tried
The patisserie filling - . I used the Bavarian cream - which is a vanilla egg based pastry cream, and lava cake and hangsen which will create the chocolate ganache layer . The custard will also help out here with some eggy notes
The frosting - is an Italian whipped butter cream which is traditional for this cake not a thick sugary butter cream - so vanilla whipped cream was perfect and the cake is covered by almonds
vanilla is a very prominent flavor profile in this cake so wanted to enhance that a bit with shisha vanilla
