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 Persian Lime, 1%, 4% and 8%, 60/40 VG/PG base, Steeped 16 days.

Flavor Description: A pretty well-rounded lime, mixing tartness, sweetness, and a bit of zest.

The lime here is all over the place, in mostly a good way. Vape Train says this is their realistic lime, and it definitely hits some of those kind of notes. I get a pretty realistic lime zest in the top notes. Not overwhelming or too harsh, but manages to be fairly present, at least before a longer steep. There is also a fairly realistic lime tartness to this. I wouldn't really call it fresh lime juice acidic, but the tartness adds some contrast and feels fairly realistic for something like a limeade. That tartness and zest plays off a sweeter, heavier base. Unsteeped, it's a little less thick than FA Distilled Lime, but it also isn't nearly as harsh. I think the base ends up sweet enough it kind of pulls this off a super realistic lime profile, but it's pretty well balanced.

And what would a citrus be without at least a little bit of weirdness in steeping? While this doesn't completely fade out like some other lime flavors, it does seem to change a bit. Off a shake, this actually seems to have quite a bit of fairly realistic lime zest. It's a bit thin, not terribly harsh, and reminds me a lot of a fuller version of FA Cold Pressed. Understandably, some of those really heavy zest notes start to die down with a steep. At about a week, I was still getting some zest but it was definitely a bit less aggressive.

This also seems to sweeten up considerably on a steep. At a week the uptick in sweetness was noticeable. At 16 days, it seems even sweeter and it's pushing a bit towards a candy or limeade type flavor. It's not that obnoxious bright "green" kind of skittles lime taste like something like FLV Lime, but more of a sweeter, heavier lime hard candy. Still has some pop and acidity like an actual lime, but it's gotten heavier and kind of sugary. It's kind of reminding me of a lime version of what some of the lemon flavors do where they basically turn into a lemonhead with a steep.

Trying to put this in some context, seems somewhere between the sweeter, brighter FA distilled lime and the more realistic FA Cold Press lime. As it steeps, it also picks up some of the sweetness of something like FW Key Lime or TPA Key Lime. It's the utility infielder of the lime world.

Off-Flavors: Nothing un-limeish. Seems to steep out considerably sweeter than it starts out, so that's a bit odd.

Throat Hit: Light. Pretty mellow for a lime or citrus in general.

Percentage testing: At 1%, especially steeped, I'm not getting a ton out of this. Some light tartness, some heavier candy sweetness, but it doesn't really feel fleshed out or filled in at all. I'm tasting a bit of my base through this.

At 4%, this is starting to fill in. That lime zest is coming through a bit more,there is still some tartness, and that sweeter base is definitely deeper and more solid. Balance is fairly good here, and there isn't much harshness.

At 8%, this doesn't really feel blown out. The zest is a bit heavier but it isn't too harsh and the base is feeling pretty heavily candied. While I'm getting most of what I want out the flavor, there isn't really anything that makes me think this couldn't comfortably go a bit higher.

Vape Train suggests using this mixed 3-5% and standalone 6-9%. That actually doesn't seem far off. It's one of the least intense lime flavors I've had, especially with a steep. Just based on these tests, and if you're planning on anything with a steep, I'd probably be using around 3-4% as an accent, and maybe 8% as a primary note but that seems flexible. As a S&V or short steep, I'd probably go at 4-5%.

Uses & Pairings: Kind of a catch-all lime. At lower percentages the zest and tartness are going to come through a bit easier than the sweeter parts of this. Should work well as a lime accent in stuff like fruit mixes or sweeter beverages. I think it's probably a bit too sweet for really heavy cocktail applications.

Should mix pretty well with heavier creams and custards in general, adding some decent lime flavor without coming across as too tart, bitter, or harsh.

Should also work in bakeries or cheesecakes, especially at higher percentages where that sweetness really comes out.

Second Opinions: Noted had a big old lime fiesta recently and VT Persian Lime was covered. Starting at 54:50 the mighty ID10-T and some other jerk talk about this flavor. Selected quotes: "I dig this one." "Better alternative to (FA) Distilled." "lime zest up top, sort of that syrupy type base, less fizzy but a whole lot more limey than Distilled." "not harsh at all."
Here is the product page from Vape Train. Their description: "Persian Lime has a real lime taste that’s sour just like a real lime, this flavour can be used and paired with other fruits such as Apricot, Banana, , Fig, Grapefruit, Guava, Lemon, Lychee, Orange, Mango, Papaya, Passion Fruit, Persimmon, Pineapple, Raspberry and Strawberry. Persian lime is also suitable for your alcohol beverage e-liquid recipes which may include Brandy, Cognac, Gin, Rum, Tequila & Vodka." That is a whole lot of things. After a steep I'd quibble a bit about how realistic this comes across, but yeah... throw it in whatever.

In this episode, we wanted to make our own unique tropical cocktail using watermelon, lime, and orange. With the addition of VT Blood Orange Champagne and VT Light Rum, this mix turned out to be a wonderfully refreshing watermelon "Daiquiri" type cocktail.

Based on this recipe

Recently got hold of VT Persian Lime and totally fell in love. It’s everything a lime should be and nothing it shouldn’t. This is just an attempt at building around it as a primary note. I’m using it as the central flavour in a lime curd.

FA Meringue and TFA Toasted Marshmallow make a pretty convincing Pavlova base.

VT Persian Lime, LB VIC and INW Custard make up our lime curd.

The rest is really up to you. I added very small amounts of Mango, Raspberry, Blueberry, Blackberry and Strawberry for the topping, but feel free to mess with this if you don’t have these specific flavours.

Just keep them at very low percentages, to prevent them from stomping all over the pavlova and lime curd base.

Creamy Lime Custard with Graham Cookie Crust and Fluffy Whipped Topping just like Grandma used to make.

(the custard) A rich combination of TFA’s Vanilla Custard 2 and INW Yes, We Cheesecake with FW Cookie Butter to boost those dark cookie notes.

(the lime) I went with VT Persian Lime, it tastes like just the juice of the lime, you don’t get much bitterness or many sour notes from it so it’s perfect for adding the lime note to the custard without overpowering the delicate creaminess or smooth buttery texture. I backed it with FA Lime Tahity - Distilled for a little zest.

(the whip) TFA Whipped Cream adds a decent amount of body to the vape and a nice fluffy texture that shows up just at the finish.

A refreshing concoction of fresh strawberry’s and a mixed medley of melon’s, finished with a twist of lime! Feel free to add 0.5% WS-23 to turn it into a slushie! 💙 S&V APPROVED

This recipe exists because of Foment_life's spectacular pear trinity, as found in his recipe DAAPled Pears. The combination of FA Pear, TFA Pear, and FA Fuji is hands down the best, most realistic pear I've ever had in vape form. I'll repeat what I said in my review of DAAPled Pears: it is a smooth, sweet, crisp work of art.

I wanted to see what this pear trinity would do in a Placid-esque recipe (I assume everyone is aware of Adirondack's Placid . . .if not look it up). I combined the pear trinity with VT Persian Lime, WF Strawberry Gummy Candy, TFA Honeysuckle, and LA Cheesecake. I wanted a cream presence in this recipe and find LA Cheesecake to be a perfect neutral cream. It has a heavenly aroma and adds a full, creamy mouth-feel to this bright fruit/floral mix. It turns this into a creamy, sherbet-like version of Placid. I could also see this pear trinity working with VT Fizzy Sherbet and/or VT Yoghurt Drink.

Even if you don't mix this . . . please don't sleep on the beauty that Foment_life has created with DAAPled Pears.

White frosted cake with lime and blackcurrant accents. Tastes a little "fruit loopy", probably because of the lime but I'm not mad at it

Dropping this for Frank's show.., a sticky mouthfeel red lemonade.

I have been neck-deep into cherry profiles these days. This is a sweet and vibrant cherry limeade with distinct and contrasting profiles yet balanced and complementing each other.

WF Blackcherry Jelly Bean/MB Red Cherry/CAP Tart Cherry = that WF Blackcherry Jelly Bean is the meat of the cherry that the other two build onto. The cherry is red, fruity and not at all medicinal.

FW Lemonade/CAP Grapefruit = that the juiciness of the lemonade with a little zing and a great soft drink body.

VT Persian Lime/CAP Lemon Lime = the lime of my limeade. I had 1% of FA Lime Tahiti Distilled and you can add it if you feel there is not enough lime, but I like this drink to be more cherry than lime. Lime is also a bit like lemon, they all fade somewhat after a week, but in this mix the lemonade and the grapefruit manage to help the limes a lot.

I really like this vape, it's sweet and red and citrusy and it is nice. Go for a 30ml at a time and you'll have a great experience.

Enjoy, be queer and vape on!
