Essential: Genuine tobacco essences used for flavour 
Nic Select: Five nicotine strengths to choose from 
VG/PG Pick: Available in 70 VG / 30 PG and 70 PG / 30 VG 

In a world full of sour blueberry bubblegum vape e-liquid, it can be easy to forget that tobacco is still one of the most popular flavours. It might not be zesty or refreshing, but for many who miss smoking cigarettes, it’s the only thing that satisfies an old, familiar itch after they’ve quit smoking.

Tobacco Original, part of our foundational MIST Originals range, is everything a tobacco e-liquid needs to be. Made with genuine tobacco leaf essences, it has a rich and earthy flavour with a toasted edge, perfect for packet cig and rollie fans.

And it can be vaped by anyone! Looking to replace a strong habit! 18mg vape liquid will see you satisfied. Lowering your nicotine strength? Give 12mg or 6mg a go. Prefer cloudy vaping? Why not try a 3mg, 6mg or 12mg bottle with 70VG? Or if you’re nicotine-free but miss the taste, we’ve got 0% bottles in thin and thick mixtures.

If you like tobacco e-liquid, try Tobacco Original. We’re sure there’s a perfect bottle for you.

Nice Nic: Smooth inhales thanks to the use of nicotine salts 
Gently Does It: Subtle berry sweetness that never overwhelms you 
New Era: Perfect for new vapers used to disposable vape kits 

Nic salts use benzoic acid to reduce the e-liquid alkalinity, resulting in a smoother inhale. This is great for flavours like Classic Mister Blue, which features a strong dose of freezing ice that might be uncomfortable with freebase nicotine.

The fruity berry flavour sings through beautifully, with a restrained sweetness that never overpowers you during long, intense vaping sessions. With all the same strength options as Fresh Banana Ice, it’s approachable for any MTL vaper.

The final addition of aniseed gives the overall profile a hint of liquorice, elevating it into a mature and complex spectrum of flavours. This is a nice feature for those tired of candy-esque zesty berry juices.

Pros

  • Nicotine salts ensure a smooth throat hit
  • Massive number of strengths to suit any needs
  • Aniseed provides a mature edge of flavour

Cons

  • Liquorice may not suit your personal taste
  • Some may prefer a stronger fruit taste

Fruity Fun: Intensely juicy mango pulp flavour 
Queen Mary: Genuine Lost Mary disposable vape e-liquid 
Better Buy: Five times as much e-liquid as a disposable contains 

Lost Mary, made by Elf Bar, has brought incredibly zesty flavours to millions of vapers worldwide. Now, you can enjoy those same rich plateaus of taste from your refillable kit with Maryliq e-liquid like Triple Mango Nic Salt e-liquid.

“Triple Mango” is used as a title to emphasise the fruity flavour; there’s no distracting ice or other fruits like peach and pineapple to take any focus away from the scintillatingly sweet and juicy eponymous orange fruit. Each puff sends a powerful surge of richly flavoured fruit down to the lung.

Think of the savings: a Lost Mary disposable contains 2ml of e-liquid and costs around £5. So why not pay £1.51 less for five times as much flavour and excitement?

Pros

  • Pure and focused mango juice flavour 
  • Made by the same people who make Elf Bar and Lost Mary vapes
  • Far better value than disposable vapes

Cons

  • Extra sugar may taste cloying to some vapers 
  • A little ice might have elevated the flavour profile

Decadent Dessert: Sumptuous mix of ice cream, spice and cookie 
Alternatively: Also available as a 10ml 50/50 nicotine salt 
Sublimely Sub-Ohm: 70VG ratio is perfect for large cloud production 

Vaping lets you indulge in decadent desserts without worrying about your figure, and shortfills like Uncommon 1 by Supergood let you vape on without worrying about the cost either.

A 70VG ratio is used, making it suited for DTL vaping and sub-ohm kits, though it’s also available as a 50/50 nic salt. The flavour is pure creamy goodness: velvety vanilla ice cream is scattered with crumbled cookie pieces. A final generous dusting of sweet, spicy cinnamon brings a rich punch of flavour, which helps the creamy and bakery notes combine without issue.

It also comes with two free nicotine shots, which you can add to reach 3mg, though vapers in need of a stronger puff can opt for the 10mg and 20mg nic salt versions instead. 

Pros

  • Indulgent dessert flavours that blend well 
  • Includes two free nic shots for 3mg strength
  • 70VG allows for tasty cloud chasing

Cons

  • Cinnamon isn’t to everyone’s taste 
  • The 10ml version isn’t as good value as the high VG shortfill

Now, £24.99 might not seem like a ‘cheap’ price, but you haven’t seen the CBD strength yet. Take a look. Yes, that’s correct. Haze CBD Diamon’s Bubble Haze 100ml has a CBD content of 15000mg.

Now, let’s put that into perspective. Orange County’s Cherry OG Kush 50ml has 1500mg of CBD. Double it, and you’d have 100mls of 3000mg. That’s still FIVE TIMES LESS POTENT than what Haze CBD Diamond’s offering for less money!

And the use of isolate CBD means that you can enjoy the playful and sweet flavour of classic bubblegum candy without worrying about any weedy smells turning heads. CBD is legal, of course, but we appreciate it isn’t a scent everyone finds agreeable.

Pros

  • Astonishingly high CBD contents 
  • No noticeable cannabis smell or taste
  • Large, long-lasting volume

Cons

  • Potentially too intense for some 
  • Many CBD vapers prefer natural terpene flavours

Ice Ice Vapey: Pure refreshment vape juice
Mint Marvel: Soft herbal menthol flavour 
Cold Cloud: 70 VG content will produce large vapour clouds 

Lots of the cheapest vape juice flavours offer cool menthol hits, but usually with a fruity accompaniment, like Fresh Banana Ice above. Riot Squad, long celebrated for its sustainable production methods, has now released a cooling e-liquid that menthol purists will adore: Ice 50ml from their 100% Menthol shortfill range.

There are no distracting fruity sugars, sour tangs or creamy waves to worry about here, just pure hits of invigoratingly frosty ice accompanied by the faint hint of herbal, botanical menthol extracts.

If you like a cold hit but get frustrated by oral buildups of sugary sweeteners, you’ll adore this straightforward glacial ice menthol in a bottle. Even better, the 70 VG content means you can enjoy big frosty lungfuls of cooling vapour with no discomfort. 

Pros

  • No distracting sweetness 
  • Cool and frosty ice refreshment
  • Large cloud production potential

Cons

  • Sweet-tooth vapers should avoid 
  • Can be almost uncomfortably cold in the winter

Big Bottle: Mammoth bottle of e-liquid for barely over a tenner 
Massive MTL: 50/50 ratio allows MTL vapers to enjoy large e-liquid volumes 
Paradise Puffs: Refreshingly cool and sweet watermelon slice flavour 

Shortfills offer great value, but their higher price point can often make them out of reach when you’re trying to vape on a budget. However, watermelon Ice 100ml from the Drifter Bar Salts range puts a mammoth bottle of delicious e-liquid in your hand for just over a tenner!

Mixed at a 50/50 ratio, it’s a less common example of an MTL shortfill. As a bar salt, it aims to deliver disposable vape levels of intense sweetness to your refillable kit in the form of glisteningly sweet and cold watermelon slices. The tropical flavour is rich and sugary, with a cooling backnote that refreshes your taste buds with every exhale.

The bottle also comes with free nic shots, though it’s worth noting that adding both nicotine shots to the larger bottle will still only result in a 3mg strength. But if high-strength isn’t a concern for you, feel free to get your hands on this lusciously big bottle of paradise flavour.

Pros

  • Gigantic 100ml bottle for less than £12.00  
  • A shortfill that MTL vapers can enjoy
  • Sweet and invigorating taste of cool watermelon juice

Cons

  • Tricky to enjoy at a higher strength than 3mg
  • Bottle lid can be tricky to remove for nicotine shots
