pending order
Citrus Punch - 30 mL
Tutti - Frutti - 120ml
Harvest Berry - 30 mL
Absinthe - 30ml
Custard - 250ml
Tiramisu - 60ml
Peach - 250ml
Passion Fruit - 120ml
Bilberry - 120ml
Boston Cream Pie V2 - 30 mL

Placing an order early next week - can't help but think that I am missing something...

The fruity order is part of a special request. I do want something mint-ish - there is a menthol, a menthol artic, peppermint, spearmint and creme de menthe. What would you suggest from your experience?

I've tried a couple of different brands of peppermint and not found a difference. Have you thought of adding some to Harvest Berry? I've found menthol can be overpowering, peppermint seems to blend better without taking over.

RE: pending order
See, I'm on the other side of this one. I like methol because it's so powerful. I hardly have to use any. Most of my menthol recipes are just 2% or so of methol with 8-13% of the other flavors (I mix at 10-15% flavor max, more than that is overpowering to me). So for me the menthol lasts longer than peppermint would. But peppermint is easier to mix with since there's a little more margin for error.

RE: pending order
Thanks Michael, it's always good to see things from the other side. I need to get some menthol flavoring, along with some more peppermint. Make the same recipe, one with menthol and one with peppermint and see what the exact difference is tastewise.

RE: pending order
Menthol and mints to me are completely separate categories. A juice mixed with menthol has a completely different flavor profile than one with mint extracts, regardless of the ratios. Menthol stands alone in the juice flavor family tree. I do use menthol and spearmint together in Summerdaze, because I like the fresh sweetness of the mint as well as the frosty punch of menthol.

Fatboy, stop cheating with premxed concentrates and start making your own blends!!! Lol
