HI all, it's been a while.

It's been a while mainly coz I am settled with what device I use, what juice, what batteries etc.

And the device I use is indeed the Eleaf iStick.  You're right, they look sturdy and I have one piece of advice to make them last longer: Don't allow the battery to drop into the mod. PLACE them in, otherwise the bottom plate of the mod starts to fall away.

There, I'm done.

Hope you're all well and staying safe,

Jed

For me, Latakia is too good to be mixed, but I know that's supposed to be what it's for. I have a vape flavor that tastes exactly like the real thing. It's FlavourArt Latakia sold by River Supply Co. (formerly Nicotine River). They still have it. Good stuff.

I used to smoke a pound and a half a month of pure Latakia. I can't quite remember the name of the place but it was in N.C. and it came compressed into a brick. They sold top quality tobacco only. Expensive. Never tried Perique.
LOL - My roommates used to say that Latakia was smoked over burning camel dung. (It isn't; it's smoked over aromatic woods and herbs.) A French company makes a perfume called Turkish Smoke that is supposed to imitate the smell of Latakia.

Perique is moist and aromatic. It is produced by anaerobic fermentation under pressure in barrels. Fruity aromas with a hint of tartness. Like Latakia, it is considered too strong by itself and is usually used as a blending tobacco. Only produced by a few families in one location (Louisiana). Hard to find. It needs to be protected from air until it is used.

As far as I can tell, the better a pipe tobacco tastes, the more offensive it is to bystanders. The better it smells to bystanders, the worse it tastes. (I offer the various cherry flavored pipe tobaccos and cherry flavored cigars as proof.)

I freeze mine, but there are people I respect that say refrigeration is enough. Protection from light and air is probably more important.

Limit how often you open containers by only diluting to final vaping strength enough to get you through a few months. That way only the small amount of diluted base gets exposed to air repeatedly; the main supply stays rarely exposed.

All nic base will darken with age - faster with light and air exposure. Pale to amber to brown. This affects neither taste nor strength.

One downside to keeping it in the refrigerator is that it is accessible to more people. Keep it in a lockable box and enclose a MSDS in the box; this is especially important with such high strength nic base. Label all bottles with content and strength. (Life is uncertain; you may not be the next person who has to deal with your supply of nic base.)

Before experimenting with flavors, I would try experimenting flavorless (to avoid distraction) with nic strength and PG/VG ratio. High-strength base is good, as it lets you reach many combinations of PG/VG at different strengths. Mix 5-10 ml of a combination and use it until it is gone (or abandoned as unusable). (I ended up at 65 mg/ml nicotine in a 68/32 PG/VG carrier.)

Back in the bad old days (1960s), I smoked a 50/50 blend of Latakia and Perique for a while. Tobacco flavors were one of the first flavors I gave up on when I began vaping nearly 10 years ago. (I eventually gave up on all flavors, and now vape just for the nicotine.)
I have it labeled. No one is here but me. I have several flavors that I got in promos. Full size bottles, but I'm going to buy at least one more bottle of the 2bacco Red from the B&M shop. Then try cloning it. It should be easy. I have an unopened bottle of Latakia flavor also.

You could try and create your own version using the above mentioned flavours.
Only way to get it, other than at the B&M shops. Online stores are wholesale only now. No shipping to individuals.

vaping is throat hit for me,   i get extremely stroppy when this isnt achieved,   i still vape 16mg juice  ;D

You could use a juice with more PG and less VG. That will increase the throat hit.



my juice is mostly pg and i am currently vaping at 4.6 volts  16mg  1.8 lr atomiser

When I want sweet nothing beats Belgian Waffle... Mixes with tobacco vapes nicely too.

My usual vape is a mix of "555 Gold Flavor Concentrate by INA " with some "Oriental Tobacco Flavor Concentrate by FLV"

I get all of those concentrates from Wizard Labs as well. The last bunch of years it's been my only source for supplies. I just wish their flavor descriptions were better.
