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.

First of all, this recipe uses a part of recent Developed Mango recipe.
Thx for that, it's an awesome candy base I use all the time.
Anise is a difficult flavor, but here it really compliments the Sweet Current very well.
The Sweet Currant normally gets boring soon, the Anise takes care of that.
I used to avoid Anise like the plague, nowadays I can't leave it alone. Must have vaped about a liter by now.
For me this is a topper of an ADV.
Hopefully you can enjoy it as much.
All the best,
Screwdriver

In this mix, the Raspberry is the main note, in which all other profiles work on top of. I utilized FA Raspberry and TFA Raspberry Sweet to produce a vivid raspberry flavor that isn't too natural and "watery". While it's not particularly deep, it's a great base for a popsicle flavor. Next, I layed in the lime, which is the second dominating accent note. VT Persian Lime + MB Green Lime produce a very tart and bright lime flavor that sits right next to the raspberry, rather than on top of it. Lastly, I filled out the finish with FW Blood Orange, and used Menthol to add a light mint note to the mix.

My take on a commercial liquid with Green Tea, Ginger & Cactus

CAP Lemon Lime is an ideal base for a limeade. It's pretty well balanced but you get a lot of the lime up front and the lemon sticks around through the exhale. It's sweet, not sour or bitter and has a good amount of body.

I've added FA Marshmallow to round out the edges and give the profile a nice creamy head.

CAP Hibiscus is sticky and sweet. It's not a main note here but it does help everything around adding to the authenticity.

VTA Persian Lime is the star of this show. It is a zesty natural lime that sticks around through the steep. Very Good.

Some sweetener is essential for this recipe. I use CAP Super Sweet at 0.5% and I think this is a minimum.

A creamy vanilla lime flavor.

Balancing this recipe has been quite a challenge.

Let's jump in.

There are 3 main notes.

The Creamy Texture. INW Yes We Cheesecake and TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream both have a wonderful creamy body that fills out this flavor. The butter from the CAP Sugar Cookie gives the cream depth and cuts through the citrus.

The Vanilla. TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (use LB if you're a pepper) is a medium dark vanilla. It holds up well against the zesty citrus.

The Lime. The combination of VTA Persian Lime & FA Bergamot gives a bright natural lime flavor with lots of zest and most importantly it's not going to fade.

I sweeten this recipe with 0.5% FW Sweetener.

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.
