Best E-Liquids for Flavour
In the world of vaping, flavour reigns supreme. Whether you prefer the sweet taste of summer fruits or more rich, indulgent flavour profiles, there is an e-liquid for you.
Of course, we had to include ourselves on this list. If you want convenience and flavour, there is nothing better than Vont To-Go. This disposable device has ten compatible flavour profiles. They range from the icy, intense notes of Fresh Mint to the fruity flavours of Juicy Berry. No matter what e-liquid you choose, you will never be disappointed. All our products are tried and tested so that you get the best experience possible.
Pacha Mama creates some of the most original, innovative e-liquid flavours we have ever seen. Peach Lemonade, Orange Banana, and Sorbet are just a few of the vape juices on offer. All the vape juices in this range are designed to delight the senses with unique flavours that you can’t find anywhere else.
Best E-Liquids With High VG
VG stands for vegetable glycerin. It is a colourless liquid that is derived from vegetable fat. All e-liquids have a base that is made from VG, PG, and flavourings. Some vape liquids also contain nicotine and water. Vape brands start with a combination of VG and PG and build the liquid from there.
VG is commonly found in toothpastes, medicines, and food. It is far thicker than PG, and it creates a milder throat hit and bigger clouds. High VG e-liquids contain at least 60% VG, but some even go as far as 90%. Sub ohm vapers love high VG e-liquids because they promise dense, immense clouds.
Buddha Vapes is designed to give sub ohm vapers unforgettable clouds. This brand creates shortfills that contain 80VG:20PG, which is the perfect combination for cloud chasers. It pushes the amount of VG to the limit to create a fine balance between the biggest clouds possible and the best flavour possible. There are loads of fun and flavourful Buddha Vapes e-liquids to choose from including Candy Crush, Heisenberg, and Vamtoes.
We just had to include Pacha Mama again! This brand creates shortfills that have a lower amount of VG, but the clouds are still amazing. Each shortfill contains 70VG:30PG, which means that you can expect a little bit more flavour with your vapour. Pacha Mama focuses on modern, fruity twists, so you can enjoy sensations like Strawberry Jubilee, Blood Orange, and Passionfruit Raspberry. No other brand stretches the limits of fruity flavours like Pacha Mama.
Best E-Liquids With High PG
PG stands for propylene glycol. It is a colourless liquid that many manufacturers use as a preservative in food. It also goes into a wide range of hygiene products, topical creams, and medicines.
PG is synthetic. It is designed to carry flavour and create unforgettable throat hits. People who are switching from smoking to vaping often prefer high PG e-liquids because they replicate the feeling of smoking a cigarette. Any e-liquid that contains 50% or more PG is classed as a high PG liquid. PG products do not go as high as VG products, because any more than 60PG would create a very overwhelming throat hit.
Vampire Vape is the go-to choice for people who want high PG mixtures. This brand has a range of 10ml liquids that contain 40VG:60PG. You can enjoy all your favourite Vampire Vape flavours with an even more intense throat hit. Heisenberg is one of this brand’s most popular flavours, and the delicate combination of mixed berries and cool menthol is even more impactful with a high concentration of PG.
If you have your heart set on high PG mixtures, you can’t ignore Totally Wicked. This brand creates 10ml e-liquids that contain 30VG:70PG, which is one of the highest PG concentrations that you will find. Orange Candy, Strawberry Kiwi, and Menthol XXX are just a few of the flavour profiles that you can buy. Totally Wicked even creates brand-specific flavours like RY4, which promises a full-bodied burst of indulgent tobacco caramel.
Best 50:50 E-Liquids
50:50 vape juices contain an equal amount of VG and PG. These kinds of liquids promise satisfying throat hits, flavour, and vapour. If you are looking for an e-liquid that produces immense plumes of vapour or gives you the most intense throat hit you’ve ever had, you should avoid 50:50 e-liquid. But if you’re looking for a consistent, medium-intensity vape juice, you’re in the right place.
It is no surprise that Nasty Juice has made it onto this list. Nasty Juice is well-known for creating super-satisfying flavours, and ASAP Grape is one of the most popular choices for people who love 50:50 liquid. This 10ml vape juice is bursting full of ripe berries, black grapes, and other delicious fruits. Blackcurrant, Green Apple, and Honeydew are just a few of the other 50:50 flavours. They are available with 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg nicotine strength, meaning they are suitable for people who have a medium or high nicotine tolerance.
Another vape industry juggernaut is Dinner Lady, which has delighted vapers for years with the taste of Watermelon Slices. This 10ml 50:50 e-liquid is sure to make your mouth water. It’s available with 6mg and 12mg nicotine strength, which makes it the go-to choice for people who want a low to medium strength hit.
Best Nicotine Salt E-Liquids
Nicotine salts are the closest that you will get to smoking a cigarette. Manufacturers use the exact same form of nicotine that is found in tobacco leaves. They blend the nicotine with liquid and flavourings to create nicotine salts. Salts are different from standard e-liquids, which only contain a distilled form of nicotine.
Salts are absorbed into the bloodstream far quicker than standard e-liquids. The salts alter the pH levels of e-liquid, which makes them more compatible with the way that the human body absorbs chemicals.
Wick Liquor is one of our favourite nicotine salt brands. This brand manufactures e-liquids right here in the UK, and it creates products for people who want to adventure into the unknown. There is no need to be intimidated by the product names; behind each name is an enticing flavour profile. Deja Voodoo delights the senses with the sweet and rich tones of coconut and sugar cane, and Carnival evokes child-like glee with the taste of cakes and doughnuts. You can choose between 10mg and 20mg nicotine concentrations.
MIST is another popular option for people who want to replicate the feeling of smoking a cigarette. This brand has a curated range of flavours which include recognisable sensations like Very Blueberry and Strawberry. You can also indulge your senses with the layered, clever taste of Cucumber Mint. MIST’s nic salts contain 20mg nicotine.
Best Shortfill E-Liquids
True to its name, a 60ml shortfill bottle contains 50ml of e-liquid. This leaves 10ml of space for a nicotine shot of your choice. Shortfill liquids do not contain nicotine, which makes them perfect for people who want to make their own mixtures.
Large Juice is just one of the brands that cater to people who want a tailored vape experience. Since shortfills do not contain nicotine, flavour is king. Large Juice takes this challenge and runs with it. You can choose from more than 25 shortfills. This brand hooks vapers with familiar flavours like Tobacco and Vanilla, but also invites them to try less-common sensations like Donuts, Hazelnut, and Cranberry.
For more unusual flavours, nothing beats Five Pawns. This brand focuses on indulgent, rich taste sensations that contain intricate, complementary notes. Don’t be put off by the unfamiliar names! One puff on Gambit will make you feel like you are biting into an apple pie with cream, and one puff on Castle Long will overwhelm your senses with the uncompromising tones of bourbon, coconut, roasted almond, and vanilla bean.
Tips for Purchasing an E-Liquid
Choose an E-Liquid That Is Compatible With Your Device
Not all e-liquids are compatible with all devices. In fact, vapers have to purchase specific vape liquids for their preferred device. While starter kits are compatible with most kinds of vape juice, specialised kits have different coils and tanks that only work with certain liquids.
50VG:50PG e-liquids are compatible with most starter kits and vape kits. These kinds of kits have lower power outputs. 50:50 juices contain a perfect combination of both base elements, so the coil does not have to work too hard to absorb the mixture and the device does not have to burn at high temperatures.
Sub ohm kits are designed for people who prefer mild throat hits and medium-intensity flavours. If you want to make the most of your sub ohm kit, you need to choose an e-liquid that has a high ratio of VG. You can get 100VG mixtures, but we recommend 80VG/PG mixtures for people who want flavour with their vapour.
Some kits are designed with specific vaping styles in mind. MTL (Mouth-to-Lung) vape kits are popular amongst ex-smokers because they replicate the feeling of smoking a traditional cigarette. These kinds of kits work best with high PG e-liquids which promise intense throat hits.
Choose the Right Nicotine Strength for You
E-liquids contain a sliding scale of nicotine. You can buy liquids that contain 0mg of nicotine or 20mg of nicotine. This is the maximum amount of nicotine that manufacturers can put in their e-liquids. There is a delicate balance between finding the right nicotine strength and being overwhelmed.
If you are just dipping your toes into the world of vaping, you should consider buying e-liquids that are on the lower end of the spectrum. Anything from 0mg to 6mg is a good option for beginners. 6mg to 12mg strength e-liquids are ideal for intermediate users, and the higher end of the spectrum is reserved for people who have a high nicotine tolerance.
Too much nicotine can make you ill. Vapers who jump straight to 20mg nicotine strength e-liquids may experience nausea and headaches. It is important to gradually increase your nicotine consumption until you find a concentration that you are comfortable with.
Buy From a Reputable E-Liquid Brand
This is the most important part of buying an e-liquid. If your favourite e-liquid brand sells products that are not TPD compliant, there is no way of knowing whether they will be harmful. Even worse, non-TPD-compliant brands soon get shut down, which could leave you without your favourite vape juice.
At Vont, we sell TPD-compliant, reduced-risk e-liquids. Our customers can choose from a range of devices and flavours. Model One pod system is compatible with ten carefully curated flavour profiles. You can choose from flavours like Cool Mint, Creamy Strawberry, and Juicy Berry. Order over £40 worth of products to enjoy free delivery!
