Ultimate Guide to Vaping for Flavour (with Tips and Best Kits)

MIST's featured image for the best vape for flavour blog

While most people get into vaping as a nicotine delivery system which is infinitely preferable to smoking, there are of course other attractions to vaping which traditional tobacco products cannot offer, and the greatest of these is flavour. For years vape manufacturers have been in a Flavour Race, each one competing to produce vape tanks, vape juices and vape mods which are specifically designed to produce the best flavour possible. But with so many products on offer, how are we to determine which are the best vapes for flavour?

That’s what we intend to deduce in this roundup, where we’ll be taking a look at a broad spectrum of vaping products so that we can let you know what setup will be the best flavour kit you can hope to acquire.

In this blog we’re going to be looking at the very best vape tanks, coils, juices and vape kits which are prized before all else for their flavour production, so strap in because it’s going to be an intense one!

Best Tank for Flavour

A vape tank is a cylindrical container on the top of your vape kit that you fill with e-liquid and inhale from. It’s as essential an aspect of a vape kit as the coils, mods and juice, and different tanks have different features and advantages.

Some tanks are for MTL use whereas others are meant for sub-ohm vaping, and others still are capable of handling both kinds of vaping, though this kind of versatility is a rare treat.

Some vape tanks have brilliant airflow designs, some boast easy refill methods, and others can be totally disassembled for deep cleaning. Each and every one of the vape tanks below are ones that we feel excel at the production of deep, rich flavour from your vape liquid.

Voopoo’s pod vape offerings have been an absolute bounty of blissful cloudy power, changing the way many of us look at pod vape kits and solidifying their position as one of the premier manufacturers of sub-ohm pod kits.

The TPP-X Tank takes Voopoo’s fantastic TPP Pod system and makes it instantly compatible with any sub-ohm mod using a 510 connection!

A hybrid of pod and tank, the TPP Pod sits comfortably within a detachable magnetic 510 pin adaptor, meaning the pod can be used on a number of Voopoo pod systems, then placed into the adaptor for use with any other mod that utilises high wattages!

The TPP-X Tank uses the Voopoo TPP coil system, which ranges in resistance from 0.2ohms to 0.15ohms, making it a definitively sub-ohm piece of kit, further confirmed by the wide bore mouthpiece designed for direct-to-lung hits.

Top airflow: Top airflow prevents leaks 
Great flavour: Intense MTL focussed flavour 
Z Window: Viewing window helps gauge juice level

Geekvape are best known for their big, bulky and oh-so durable mods that often boast IP68 protections and are designed to withstand a kicking and keep on ticking.

So we were very pleasantly surprised when the Geekvape Z Tank first landed on our desks. A definitively MTL tank, the Z Tank still showcases some of Geekvape’s durable design ethos while also promoting incredible flavour.

The Z Tank is wrapped in a protective metal casing, doing away with the main cause of tank deaths; broken glass. The Z Tank does feature a stylish window in a ‘Z’ shape that gives the user a full view of their current e-liquid levels.

The top airflow ensures that leaks are almost entirely eliminated, as juice that escapes the coil cannot leak out of the airflow ports at the top of the tank.

The Z Tank takes the Z Series of coils from Geekvape, fantastically flavoursome and designed to last a very reasonable amount of time before requiring a coil change.

Specifications

  • Top-to-bottom airflow design
  • Top-fill setup
  • Unique carved Z eliquid window
  • 510 pin connector
  • Push-to-fit coil installation
  • Metal shell protects the glass tube
  • Leakproof design

  • 1x Drip Tip
  • 1x Spare Parts Pack

Top Airflow: Top airflow prevents leaks 
Quiet airways: Eliminates sub-ohm ‘hiss’ 
Total disassembly: Deep cleaning will improve flavour 

HorizonTech are quickly making a name for themselves as flavour masters, capable of producing a fantastically cloudy tank and coil series that promotes clear notes of tastes with just as much ferocity as it kicks out fat plumes.

The SAKERZ tank is one of HorizonTech’s true success stories and perhaps their best sub-ohm tank, boasting a host of design breakthroughs that take this tank to the next level.

The SAKERZ can be totally disassembled for deep cleaning, so those of you who desire total purity of vape juice flavours can ensure that no residual vape oil is left over when switching e-liquid flavours.

The SAKERZ also features an ingenious airflow design, crafted to ensure almost silent inhalations, cutting down on the characteristic “hiss” that often accompanies deep lung pulls from a sub-ohm tank.

Speaking of sub-ohm, the SAKERZ coils are very low in resistance, ranging from 0.16ohm to 0.4ohm, and are easily swapped out thanks to the SAKERZ tank’s push/pull coil change system.

Specifications

  • Adjustable top airflow
  • Top-refill system
  • Quiet and smooth airflow
  • Press-Fit Coil Installation
  • Threaded 510 Connection
  • 2ml TPD compliant tank capacity

Best Coil For Flavour

A vape coil is the small metal element that you install in your tank to absorb and atomise the e-liquid you’ve filled your tank with.

Coils are extremely varied; some have high resistances (indicated with a number printed on the side followed by a Ω symbol) and are intended for moderate, mouth to lung vaping, whereas others have low resistances and are meant for the production of huge clouds with the use of high VG liquids and high wattage outputs.

The variation doesn’t end there either! Some coils will have alternative heating materials such as titanium or ceramic, and others still will feature novel wicking materials such as wood pulp and tea tree fibres, though the majority utilise organic cotton.

The HorizonTech Falcon 2 tank is a cloudy delight, capable of kicking out incredibly luxurious clouds without ever sacrificing even a hint of flavour in the pursuit of competition-grade cloudage.

The Falcon 2 coils are brilliantly designed, featuring an ingenious ‘conical fan mesh’ interior that manages to promote e-liquid absorption and reduce dry spots and burnouts, while also funnelling the vapour toward the drip tip in order to give you an instant mouthful of full flavour.

The mesh isn’t the only thing that HorizonTech have innovated; the wicking materials are remarkable sophisticated, constructed from a mixture of wood pulp and organic cotton, totally flavourless and designed to impart nothing but the purest flavour possible from your favourite e-liquid.

The Falcon 2 tank is a marvellous sub-ohm piece of kit, and it’s the coils that really make it a game changingly advanced tank.

These Kanthal coils are intricately designed to have tight internal airways that ensure that your inhalation is characterised by a tight and focussed beam of pure flavour, delivering unbelievably tasty hits with every puff.

Freemax have long been praised for their sub-ohm tanks, but as we all know by now the real heart of a great tank is the mesh coil inside, and hoo boy do Freemax know how to make good mesh coils!

The Fireluke 3 Tank’s coil system features a truly unique wicking material, constructed from a mixture of organic cotton and tea tree fibres that promote not just unbelievably depth of flavour but also coil longevity, resulting in sub-ohm coils that generally last longer than most others.

The Fireluke 3 coil also contains a military-grade SS904L mesh coil interior, which promotes rapid absorption and reduces corrosion.

This, along with the novel wicking materials, ensures the longest lasting sub-ohm coil you can hope to attain today, which is guaranteed to deliver intense and memorable flavour.

Best Vape Juice for Flavour

Vape juice is our bread and butter, and is possibly the most important aspect of how much flavour your vape kit is producing.

A composition of harmless chemicals such as PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerine), flavour concentrates and nicotine solution, vape liquid is what you’ll be consuming once you’ve left tobacco in the past, and is perhaps more varied than any other aspect of vaping.

Some vape juices are fruity, others are creamy, still others are sour, buttery, mentholated, harsh, smooth, the list goes on! It’s important to check the VG/PG ratio of a juice you’re considering, as not all juices are compatible with all coils and tanks.

There are a few people who are allergic to propylene glycol, and we recommend these people try a 100% VG liquid such as those in the Frugi range, which are intended for people with PG intolerances.

MTL Specific

Brewed at a 50/50 ratio

Strength range

0mg, 3mg, 6mg and 12mg available

Subtle

Sweet but never overbearing

For years shortfills were solely aimed at high VG, sub-ohm vapers, who tended to get through more juice than MTL vapers and wanted larger bottles to carry around.

Here at MIST we felt it was a shame that MTL vapers were missing out on the savings and convenience that come from having your week’s juice in a single 60ml bottle, rather than having to sort through a pocketful of half-full 10ml bottles.

The MIST MTL Shortfills range is mixed at a 50/50 ratio, so it’s intended exclusively for use in low-wattage, high-resistance MTL vape tanks, and Blizzard is the best of the bunch!

Gently sweet but deceptively moreish, Blizzard is a lovely blend of crisp green apples, tart and juice blackcurrants and a healthy dose of menthol to ice everything out, making each puff like a sip from a jug of chilly squash on a hot summer’s day.

The MIST MTL Shortfills range is available in strengths of 3mg, 6mg and 12mg, and comes with complimentary nicotine shots to reach the requested strength. Note: the 12mg bottles require 4 nicotine shots and will taste better the morning after you add the nicotine shots.

Specifications

  • 50PG/50VG
  • 60ML Short fill bottle
  • Sold with 0% nicotine content
  • As many MIST Nicotine Shots as needed to attain your desired nicotine strength
  • May require 2-3 days steeping time

Nothing beats Menthol! Here at MIST we’ve been supplying people with vape juice for years, and something you cannot fail to notice is the fervent loyalty of the Menthol fan.

Not excessively sweet, Menthol still carries a very noticeable cool flavour that pleases but never overwhelms the vaper with sugar and sweeteners. Each puff is characterised by an icy blast that invigorates the senses and brings your tastebuds to life.

The best thing about the MIST Originals Menthol is the sheer range of choices! You can buy it by the 10ml bottle and take advantage of our multibuy deal, or you can but a 100ml pack of 10 bottles for maximum savings!

What’s more, Menthol is available both in Standard Mix (70PG/30VG) and Extra Vapour Mix (70VG/30PG), meaning that both MTL and DTL vapers can enjoy this cool and refreshingly flavoured e-liquid!

Specifications

  • 70PG/30VG or 30PG/70VG

Sweet Thief – Strawberries & Cream blends the made-in-heaven pairing of tart and juicy summer strawberries with thick and sumptuous double cream, a mellow and sweet vape which manages to effortlessly combine indulgent pudding notes with fresh and lively fruit vibes! A fantastic choice for the pudding and custard vape juice fans who’d like to try something new!

The best part is the Sweet Thief range is for everyone! The 3mg version is mixed at a 70VG/30PG ratio, whereas the 6mg and 12mg versions are blended at a 50/50 mix, meaning that both sub-ohm cloud chasers and moderate MTL puffers can both indulge in this treat of an e-liquid.

Sweet Thief comes with complimentary nicotine shots to attain your selected nicotine strength. Note; the 12mg version requires 4 nicotine shots, and will taste better the morning after you initially mix them in.

High VG: Old version was MTL only 

Koncept XIX is a shortfill range from the vape masters at Vampire Vapes, intended to showcase some of their more pudding-based flavours but also allowing them to sell larger quantities of their bestselling liquids.

Heisenberg barely requires an introduction. One of the most popular e-liquids of all time, Heisenberg is a mouthwatering blend of blueberries, menthol, aniseed and eucalyptus. An incredibly botanical flavour, Heisenberg is extremely memorable and manages to convey a subtle sweetness that is enhanced with the addition of herbal flavourings and a final icy punch from the menthol.

Heisenberg quickly developed a cult following, with hundreds of vape companies attempting their own version, however no one could quite match up to Vampire Vape’s original masterpiece.

Heisenberg comes with a free nicotine shot, which will bring it to 3mg nicotine strength.

Best Vape Kits for Flavour

Vape kits are the whole package! A mod for power, a tank for juice and a coil for the production of vapour.

Vape kits are very varied, and different kits are intended for different kinds of vapers. A person looking for a cigarette replacement might do well with an Aspire Vilter S Kit, whereas a cloud fantastic will be better served by something like a SMOK RPM5

Different vape kits will have different specifications to their designs. Some will have high wattage outputs, some will be sleek and pocketable. One size does NOT fit all in vaping, and we encourage you to seriously consider what you need from a vape kit, rather than just going for the most expensive available.

Think of it this way; if you needed a small bicycle to get to the shops, would you buy a monster truck? Similarly, if you needed a jackhammer to break up some paving slabs, a jeweller’s hammer isn’t going to get the job done!

Aspire are best known for sleek and polished mod kits such as those in the Zelos series, however their recent pod vape offers have given us cause to reconsider, as they’re delivering fantastic pod vapes with stunning confidence.

The Aspire Flexus Q is a slimline and extremely portable AIO pod vape, featuring optional auto-draw and airflow control via a control panel on the side of the unit. Another great feature of the Flexus Q is it offers faster charging times than almost any other vape device, capable of charging from 0% to 80% in only 10 minutes!

But the Flexus Q finds its way into this list thanks to the aforementioned Aspire AF Coils. Featuring an intricate internal design specifically calibrated to deliver the purest flavour possible, it’s a fantastic choice of vape pen for vapers seeking a vape that’s lightweight and travel-friendly without having to sacrifice any flavour carrying potential.

Innokin’s T22 Pro is, in our eyes, perhaps the best starter vape kit ever released. User-friendly, intuitively designed and durably built, it’s a fantastic choice for both new vapers and seasoned puffers looking for a new primary MTL device for everyday vaping.

The T22 Pro boasts a stunning 3000mAh battery, and considering the vape mod has a power output range of only 9.5W – 13.5W, that means your battery will often last for 2-3 days of constant session vaping without requiring a recharge, which is rapidly done thanks to the USB-C charging port.

The T22 Pro comes with the T18E Pro tank, which is pre-fitted with a 1.7ohm M18 coil, specifically designed to improve airflow and deliver intense flavour with every puff. The tank can also take the classic T18E coil, however you’ll find the M18 has more flavour and airflow potential.

The T22 Pro is one of the best vape starter kits ever released, and is bound to deliver satisfaction.

MTL vs DTL: Which is Better for Flavour?

Like many things in vaping, this often comes down to personal preference. People who find DTL vaping more enjoyable than MTL are likely to say DTL is more flavoursome, and vice versa.

It is true that DTL, sub-ohm vaping produces far more vapour, which may lead you to follow the logical conclusion that ‘more vapour > more flavour.’ However, there is something to be said for the flavour potential of MTL vaping.

MTL vaping produces significantly less vapour, however the vapour it does produce is generally more concentrated and ‘thicker.’ Also, if you consider the names, DTL vaping goes directly to your lung. The flavour you’re enjoying from it is mostly the aftertaste residue left behind following a big inhale/exhale. MTL vapour is drawn into the mouth first and then pulled into the lungs with a followup intake of breath. The initial act of drawing the vapour into your mouth via pressure, like drinking through a straw, gives the vaper more of an opportunity to savour the vapour pooling on their tongue before drawing it down to the lung.

As such, we believe that MTL juice vaping offers noticeably more opportunity to savour the flavour of your e-liquid, however, sub-ohm fans can rest assured that their high VG juices are still brimming with flavour.

Read our MTL vs DTL comparison guide for more in-depth details.

Tips for Maximising Flavour from Your Vape

Reducing the Airflow

Closing the airflow on your tank to only allow a small amount of air through will result in the vapour being produced as a thin and concentrated ‘beam’ of flavour. Think of it as the difference between a regular flashlight torch and a laser pointer!

Choose the Right Coil

If you can, try to use top quality coils that contain mesh interiors or alternative wicking materials like tea tree fibres and organic wood pulp. Organic cotton is also a great and very popular wicking material that has no effect on the juice it’s absorbing, so you can enjoy pure flavour.

Find the Right PG to VG Ratio

Ensure that you’re using the correct PG/VG ratio for your tank/coil. Coils that span the range of 0.8ohm – 1.8ohm are going to do far better with e-liquids with a 50/50 or high PG content, whereas sub-ohm coils with a lower resistance will do best with high VG liquids.

Dial in Your Wattage

Before installing a new coil, take a look at the casing, and you’ll likely see the recommended wattage range for the coil. Ensure that you stay within this range; while you can sometimes afford to ramp things up a little for a larger cloud, you’ll find that your coils burn out much faster when you exceed the stated wattage, which will hamper your search for the purest flavour.

Use a Smaller Drip Tip

If your tank has a removable drip tip, see if you can find a thinner or ‘tapered’ drip tip to replace it with. Larger ‘wide bore’ mouthpieces are great for cloud chasing but aren’t best suited to flavour fans. A thinner or skinnier drip tip is much like closing off your airflow most of the way; it results in a more concentrated ‘beam’ of flavour from the vape, which will lead to a much greater depth of flavour.

Make Sure to Properly Store Your Juice

Properly storing your vape juice will ensure that the flavour maintains its potency. E-liquid is best stored out of direct sunlight, ideally in a cool, dark place like a drawer or cupboard. Even the best vape juices can be made all the better with little patience!

Of course, too cool is uncool; anyone who’s left a bottle of high VG juice in their car on a winter’s night will attest to finding a bottle of treacle the next morning, so keep it above freezing temperatures.

Lastly, you can further increase the potency of your liquid flavour by letting your liquid ‘breathe’ and steep overnight in a dark place. Just place it somewhere you know it won’t get knocked or tipped over, remove the lid and occasionally squeeze the bottle to push the old air out and draw new air in. You’ll find that this process results in a darker, more flavoursome e-liquid the next day, and it’s a fairly common practice among those who brew their own DIY vape juices using high grade vape concentrates to devise ingenious new vape flavour combinations.

Avoid Vaper’s Tongue by Switching Up Your Flavours

It’s very common for someone with a No.1 favourite flavour they never stray from to find that the juice has suddenly lost its spark. It’s not down to recipe change but rather tastebud complacency.

“Vaper’s tongue,” as it’s known, results from only vaping one flavour for extended periods of time, which eventually results in the vaper not being able to taste it anymore. No need to worry, however; just vape your way through a bottle of different juice to revitalise your tastebuds, and you’ll find that your old favourite will have regained its lustre when you try it again.

Need More Help?

We hope you’ve found this examination of the best vapes for flavour informative. While the main draw of vaping is of course smoke reduction/elimination, there’s no need for vaping to be a joyless pursuit, and with the help of great flavours, you’ll find you’re that much less likely to return to nasty, gross tasting cigarettes when you know you can get just as much relief from candy, dessert and fruit flavours in e-liquids.
