A good way to get started is to buy a Halo starter pack. The $24.99 packs contain six 10ml bottles of Halo’s best e-liquid flavors. There are four different sample packs available; tobacco, mint and menthol, desserts, and a variety pack.
Halo’s Tobacco and Menthol flavor e-liquids are consistently ranked as some of the best e-juice flavors on the market.
Halo specifically caters to sub-ohm vapers with its high VG, V-Type range. 70% VG ensures large, dense clouds.
Halo has a clearance section where you can pick up some great bargains. At time of writing Shamrock is half price, selling at $4.25. If there are flavors you would like to try but you’re not too sure about them then wait until they appear in the clearance section.
The best selling Halo e-liquid is a tobacco flavor called Tribeca. The blend is predominantly classic tobacco with hints of vanilla and caramel. Max VG and 70/30 PG/VG varieties are available with nicotine levels of 0, 1.5, 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24mg. Tribeca is a great all day vape and is possibly the best tobacco e-juice currently on the market.
For a purely tobacco flavored juice with a strong throat hit check the best vape juice is Halo’s Torque56. Heavy smokers who need an all day e-liquid with a robust tobacco flavor should look no further as Torque56 is really as good as it gets.
The most popular dessert e-liquid from Halo is Shamrock. The chocolate and mint flavor is similar to thin mints. This is a well balanced blend with the mint not overpowering the chocolate, a common problem in mint dessert e-liquids. Shamrock is a smooth vape with a good throat hit and rich taste.
Halo’s second best selling flavor is the menthol SubZero e-liquid. SubZero has an intense cool flavor, as one reviewer put it, it will ‘freeze your teeth off’. The crisp, refreshing taste avoids the sweetness of many other menthol e-juices. Many people mix Halo SubZero into other e-liquids to provide a cool sensations. Halo is well known for making some of the best menthol e-juices on the market today. If menthol e-juice is your thing, then you can find a whole range of menthol vape juice flavors in their online store.
Another reason Halo is considered to be one of the best e-juice brands brands on the market is due to the fact that they sell relatively cheap vape juice compared to other quality brands. For just $19.99 you can get 30ml of some of the best tasting e-liquid currently available. The option to buy just 10ml is also unusual, this is a real benefit if you want to try an e-liquid that you’re not sure about.
2. Cosmic Fog

Church has a base of vanilla ice-cream with a drizzle of hot fudge sauce and a cherry to finish it off. Cosmic Fog is among the best e-juice vendors when it comes to flavor complexity.

Many juices with a chocolate flavor find themselves overpowered by the chocolate flavor but in Church the flavors are perfectly balanced.
Nutz is described by Cosmic Fog as strawberry jelly spread over almond butter, infused with notes of whipped honey creme. A complex flavor, strong strawberry on the inhale is toned down by creamy almond on the exhale. Custard and cream lovers will really enjoy the creamy aftertaste.
Cola Gummy seems to be a love it or hate it flavor, it has gotten very mixed reviews. Online you will find plenty of people claiming it’s the best e-juice flavor they’ve ever had, and just as many people saying it’s one of the worst e-liquids they’ve had. With a flavor just like gummy cola bottles, if you don’t like those then Cola Gummy probably isn’t for you. The waxy, gummy part of the flavor will satisfy some but put others off completely.

Pluto is a mix of watermelon flavors with watermelon coming through most strongly and honeydew and cantaloupe in the background.

Gameover by Flawless is a blend of fruity cereal on the inhale and a creamy vanilla bean ice-cream on the exhale. This juice can create massive clouds, it has a VG to PG ratio of 80/20.
Donuts are one of those all-American foods so it is no surprise that the most patriotic e-juice manufacturer chose to make a donut e-liquid.

One Hit Wonder
One Hit Wonder sells e-liquid in huge bottles, 180ml to be exact. This has advantages and disadvantages. One one hand it makes One Hit Wonder the best value e-liquid on the market. $59.99 for 180ml works out as $10 for 30ml, more than half the price of other high quality e-juices.

This e-liquid from Phillip Rocke’s signature series is an attempt to recreate the nostalgic taste of a strawberry shortcake ice-cream bar that all Americans of a certain age will associate with their childhood.
Philip Rocke is known for creating some of the best premium e-juice on the market. He is seen as a trailblazer whose methods will one day become standard practice in the e-liquid industry. Before moving onto e-juice Rocke developed malt extracts for micro-breweries. All e-juices are made in the US in Rocke’s lab in California.
Phillip Rocke collaborated with Gemini Vapors to create the ultra premium Grand Reserve collection. These artisan vape juices are made in an ISO 6 lab in California. The complex and highly nuanced e-juices are created in small batches for the ultimate in quality control.
Creme De La Creme is a gourmet mix of hazelnut cream with a slight taste of coffee. The flavorings are extracted from real, high quality ingredients to guarantee an exquisite flavor profile. To make this e-juice real Arabica coffee was extracted.
Everything about the Phillip Rocke Grand Reserve collection is premium, the juices have been steeped for two and a half months in reclaimed brandy barrels.
Creme De La Creme has a 80/20 VG/PG mix and is available in nicotine levels of 0, 3, 6, and 9mg.
PG vs VG E-Juice
E-Juice is made up of four ingredients; Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), nicotine and flavorings. PG is the liquid that carries the flavor and VG is a sweet tasting, viscous liquid that produces the vapor. E-Juices commonly have a fifty fifty split or 70%VG and 30% PG.
Vapers who want big clouds will need high VG juices (at least 50%), while flavor chasers or those who want less vapor will want to buy high PG juice. PG is responsible for the throat hit, VG by itself has no discernible throat hit.
Cigarettes are smoked in a ‘mouth to lung’ style, which means vapor is first inhaled into the mouth and then into the lung. Vaping enthusiasts often prefer a ‘direct lung’ hit which means the vapor is inhaled directly into the lungs. If you want to simulate cigarette smoking you will need a higher PG liquid which will provide a throat hit. Mouth to lung vaping has the advantage of using less e-liquid.
How Much Nicotine is There?
E-juice can contain varying amounts of nicotine, including no nicotine at all. This is a major advantage as those who want to give up nicotine can gradually taper down.
Generally e-juices contain; 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 24mg, or 32mg of nicotine. If you are used to smoking a pack a day of cigarettes then choose e-juices with nicotine levels of 12mg-24mg. E-liquids with 24-36 mg of nicotine provide a similar hit to unfiltered cigarettes. Vape juices with 6-10mg have the same amount of nicotine as ultra-light cigarettes.
Is E-Juice Safe?
Some e-juices contain harmful chemicals so it’s best to stick to well known, premium e-juice brands. One such chemical is diacetyl. Diacetyl is used to create a buttery taste but it causes serious, irreversible lung damage (known as ‘popcorn lung’). Acetyl Propionyl is another dangerous chemical that can be used in e-juice. Premium brands such as VaporFi do not use these chemicals in any of their juices.
If an e-liquid is USA made, FDA approved and made in an FDA registered lab it is a good sign that the e-juice is high quality.
Another reason not to choose the cheapest e-Juices is that low quality liquids will contain poor quality nicotine.
Which E-Juice Should I Choose?
If you are new to e-juice then it is a good idea to try five to ten of the best e-liquid flavors so that you can figure out what PG to VG ratio like and also what types of flavors. New vapers are often surprised by the types of flavors they end up liking. The most common e-juice flavors include; tobacco, menthol, coffee drinks, desserts, fruit, candy, chocolate, cereal, and alcoholic drinks. A good way to try out a variety of flavors is to buy a sample pack. This is a cheap way of testing flavors as the bottles are smaller than standard size. Cheap sample packs start at $10 for five 5ml bottles, while premium e-juices can be higher at about $25 for three 10ml bottles.
A good way of trying new flavors is to sign up for a monthly subscription service with one of the high quality e-juice brands.
