    BCV had some of the 100mg Vaperstek VG in stock, I needed some flavors and I decided to give this a try. Oh DAYUM what a difference. The fruit flavor I made with it is so much crisper/cleaner tasting if that makes any sense. I tried it side by side, in the same model atomizer and it makes such a nice difference in the flavor.

    Wasn't sure where to post this, here, or in the Vaperstek in the vendor forum, so here is where I chose.

    REALLY stressful week. I keep a bottle of juice in my purse for those times that 2 mini protanks won't last me, in case of OT. Lots of OT this week, on top of being super stressed. So I had to break into my back up supply that had been in there a while, so long, that I had forgotten it was made with WL nic base. I buy the VT throat hit nic,lately, has a bit of throat hit. Refilled my tank (with the WL one) at work and BLAMO!! HOLY CHIT the difference. In a sort of side by side, there is no comparison. Even the VT nic with throat hit is smoother than the WL nic. Just enough throat hit and doesn't make me cough my lungs out.

    I always thought I was ok with the WL nic. After this experience, I'm sticking with VT.

    LOL! I got a kick out of that. Isn't vaping wonderful?

    On a similar note, I've used my leftover MFS Nic a few times since I switched to VT and I get the same harsh surprise. On my last order I purchased a 120ml bottle of "throat hit" nic along with a 500ml bottle of "clean" Nic I've been using them interchangeably for the past three weeks and detect no difference between the two. Perhaps my throat has been damaged by all those years of smoking. I don't know.

    Or it could be "too" :) To be clear My new "clean nic" from VT tastes just like my old "clean nic" from VT, and the "throat hit nic tastes just like the other two. It all tastes good. Maybe that should be they all have no flavor. You get the idea. I'm lost.

    VT nic is amazing, but I have been considering getting a small sample of nude nic (for a backup)

    I will say I've been spoiled on the VT nic, almost everything else tastes like windshield wiper fluid, mixed in a old shoe.

    I never got it when I was vaping 13mg. I'm at 10 now and don't. I even buy their throat hit nicotine. No peppery taste.

    Last year they had a 20% sale with the code "BLACK-FRIDAY-NICOTINE", but this year it looks like there isn't one.

    Which kinda sucks, because their jump up to $12 shipping on anything over 120ml is pretty painful to begin with imo. Although that in itself did lead me into giving some alternatives a try (i only used VT for the longest time) that I ended up being fairly happy with.

    Yeah, I was actually pretty surprised with my recent trial of Nicselect given the extremely friendly price tag. I made that switch about a month ago without telling anybody I make juice for about it, and so far there has been zero people (including myself) noting a difference.

    Then again and beyond a few select brands that stick out (i can actually taste a difference with Wizard Labs), I only found myself buying VT solely because so many other people here were doing the same...and that's essentially it. But hey, I'm also a bargain hunting cheap fuck at heart. So once you start twisting that support into an ability to make a few extra bucks off me on the shipping....it is what it is.

    Still my overall favorite choice i guess, but certainly not a $21 more dollars then i can get the same 240ml package at Nude Nicotine atm type favorite ;)

    Oh, sure, you "wamma." Take advantage of Huck's generous nature, Hell, let's all get some!

    Seriously. If you haven't tried VT and you'd like samples, I'll send you both the smooth and throat-hit versions if you'll PM me your address. I owe ya, Sharky!

    What's your take on the difference between the two? I wouldn't mind picking up some extra nic but I'm still wary of the TH ... there was a scathing review of it on the VT website.

    I picked up some TH the other day - couldn't resist it at $25/liter!

    I vape 3mg, and there's very little difference between this and the regular VT - and it's still much smoother than the WL in my freezer.

    I'll provide it when I'm able but haven't yet cracked the liter I picked up using the same reasoning as AmandaD. Folks are paying $45 to $50 for nic that often gets complaints. A single 'scathing' review shouldn't be much of a deterrent. :)

    Thanks Amanda! I have some WL in my freezer too; better than nothing, right? :)

    No, I agree, it's just that in a nic test I participated in elsewhere, I was surprised to find I greatly favored another brand. I honestly didn't think I'd even notice a difference or least not as significantly as I did. I guess my tasters are a bit more sensitive than I originally thought ... still not sure if that's a good thing or not. :)

    I do have a liter of MFS stashed in the freezer that I'm afraid to try, based on all the negative reviews I read after I bought it. It's waiting not for hard times, but for desperate times....lol!

    ok so huck sent me some TH VT
    THANK YOU

    Ok i mixed a few ml of my ADV with it
    WOW
    the flavor of my ADV is the same
    but damn it hits me in the top of the chest like a freight train. I could probably get used to it. but this migh tbe nice in a 1:2 ratio of TH and the regular nic

    now admittedly the only pg in my juice is flavorings so im not accustomed to sub ohm TH. So others may find this perfect with a slight change to their pg/vg ratio

    So what makes it give off that stronger of a TH anyway?

    I've had it in my cart a few times in the past without pulling the trigger.

    It's old. Oxidized. It's cheap so they can get rid of it.

    maybe... I don't think it's old, I think more likely after mixing, it just doesn't come out to meet the quality that is expected from the premium.

    It's still better than any other nic I've had except for their premium.

    i cant telll the difference in TASTE between it and the regular or even nicselect

    i opened the AFC up on my tank and that cuts the TH way down

    like i said im a wimp with TH lately. 50/50 mix kicks my ass.

    SO this TH Nic is good for most

    And if you buy it and feel its too much TH, mix it with your regular nic
    YOUR NOT GOING TO GET A CHANGE IN TASTE using the TH NIC

    I don't do PG, my mixes are max VG, so I welcome the tiny bit of TH I get from it.

    I received the TH nic, broke it down and put it in the deep freeze, save 30ml for side-by side comparison with the premium nic. I intend to mix both with VG and test unflavored. I s'pose this thread is the logical place to post my subjective result.

    'Offer still stands, sharky! Lemme know. :)

    While I do pretty much agree with this, based on that comparison, I've had mixes that I've made with VT that have sat quite a while that only the flavor changed. I didn't get that throat punch like I did with WL. At the time I started DIY I loved it and honestly, I could still vape it because I do like TH. BUT... flavors really do come through much clearer for me with VT.

    Of course, poor mixing practices can speed up the aging/oxidation. That's why there are threads and more threads about proper storage and care of nicotine. The whole idea is to slow down the aging/oxidation of the nic. Personally, I wouldn't buy already oxidized nic like I wouldn't buy a bag of potatoes that was already soft. I understand that the nic and the potatoes will go even farther south over time.

    If you think one farmers soft potatoes taste better than another farmers fresh potatoes, by all means, buy the old ones.

    And for the "premium".;)

    You know this is so funny there are three of us sitting right here right now vaping both wl and vt that I just made 50/ 50 with my best selling cream I have and no difference in flavor or strength and both brands bought within two weeks of each other and both been stored the same way in the same place. The cream we are vaping is a very lite flavor all day vape. Both are very clear, no peppery smells at all. Us three agree all this is just pure nonsense. lol.

    Oh I know Teresa I'm talking about wl and vt only. I know there are some that are some you can hardly vape at all.

    I haven't tried Wizard actually. I really prefer VT and Nicotine River (NicSelect). I do have a liter of MFS in the freezer, got it on sale, but afraid to try it after I read a few reviews.

    I have never tried MFS and sounds like I'm not missing anything.
