Mrs. Doctor Vapenstein, The Creature and Little Igor all love watermelon. It's a summer staple at Castle Vapenstein and one can scarcely avoid the sticky juice of watermelon in the Vapenstein Kitchens as my paramour and offspring are not accustomed to or apparently interested in keeping a tidy Lab.
My experience with watermelon is somewhat different. At the tender age of 8 I participated in a watermelon eating contest that resulted in my eating a whole seeded watermelon. Watermelon had been my very favorite food up to that point, but four hours of vivid red projectile vomiting has a tendency to reduce your enthusiasm. I haven't eaten watermelon since, although I can tolerate watermelon flavored things.
Today's test subject is from Todd at Vaperite. It's a little experiment called Kool Watermelon Tobacco, and I am assuming a natural tobacco vape with watermelon and menthol.
I will be vaping today's 16mg 50/50 juice at 3.7v on my Silver Bullet with a 1.5 ohm Joye 306 attached.
The nose of this juice has a strong, fresh watermelon to it.
The flavor on inhale is a watermelon-infused natural tobacco. Pretty straightforward. Throat hit is a little below average for a tobacco vape.
The flavor on exhale is more of the same. Very consistent, tobacco with a crisp watermelon finish. Vapor production is above average for a PG blend but perhaps a little less than I would expect from 50/50.
Well, there was no menthol here. I'm not a menthol guy, but I do feel that Todd could have taken a page from Mike at Rawr or the guys at VaporCast and added a subtle menthol to this. It would have made this an even cooler and crisper vape. Vaperite tobacco is superior, and the watermelon note is a good one. This juice begs for just a dash of menthol.
This one won't end up in my rotation, but it is a good juice. I think I will pass this one on to Mrs. Doctor, who might really find it to be right up her alley. Recommended, but try adding just a whisper of menthol because I think that would send this one over the top.
