Electronic Cigarette Flavours Information

How to Choose your E Cigarette or E-Liquid Flavour

We know that the taste and flavour of electronic cigarettes is very important to a smoker. V2 have specially formulated their best electronic cigarette flavours so that smokers get the taste, flavour and throat hit they expect and can fully enjoy their electronic cigarette.

There are 14 fantastic flavours available - tobacco, bold tobacco, American tobacco, french tobacco, fruity, minty, mellow or sweet - you can choose the best tasting e liquid.

V2 electronic cigarette tobacco flavours are available as both prefilled e-cig cartridges and e-liquid, the popular tobacco flavours are:

  • Red (traditional tobacco flavour)
  • Congress (refined/smooth Virginia tobacco)
  • Sahara (similar to French / Turkish tobacco)
  • Menthol or Peppermint  (an icy chill)
  • Fruity (lots of popular juicy flavours)
  • Sweet (try Vanilla or Chocolate)
We often get emails and telephone calls from cigarette smokers asking which is best e cigarette flavour to try first, if they smoke Cigarette Brand X or Brand Y?
The Table below indicates the best nicotine strength and e liquid or cartridge flavour to try first & is based on V2Cigs user experience/feedback. It was written by existing or ex-smokers who vape with V2 Cigs now and is intended to be an outline guide only.

Cigarette/Tobacco Type

Strength to Try Red

Rolling Tobacco 1.8%
Popular Brands from multi-national tobacco companies 1.2% or 1.8%


"Cigarettes with Tar" or "No Tar Vaping" - Which do you prefer ?

The great news with e cigarettes is that the main choices revolve around flavour and nicotine strength. Did you know that tobacco cigarette manufacturers are not allowed to be label their products as low tar cigarettes? Research found that a smoker using a low tar cigarette could inhale the same amount of tobacco tar,nicotine, and harmful, cancer-causing chemicals as in a regular cigarette, depending on how the cigarette was smoked. E cigarettes contain no tar

In 1998 in the UK, ASH and the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) accused the tobacco industry of deliberately promoting low tar cigarettes to offer false ‘health reassurance’....


V2 Cigs - The Leader in Electronic Cigarette Flavours

  • Red has more of a sharp tobacco taste and feedback suggests this has the best e cig flavour.
  • Congress has a smooth tobacco taste.
  • Sahara leaves a smooth French/Turkish aftertaste and offers something different and is liked by many customers.
  • Each smoker likes something different in what they smoke, so it's important to try the range of flavours and strengths available. The above is an indication only and one smoker may find the experience very different - everyone's taste is different.
  • For 'light' cigarettes - use the lower strengths - 0.6% to 1.2%.
  • There are also 8 fruity/exotic flavours (Menthol, Peppermint, Coffee, Cherry, Vanilla, Mint Tea, Grape and Chocolate (yummy !).

How do I choose my E Liquid or E Cigarette Flavour?

Selecting the best e-cig flavour is an art not a science. The flavour and taste of an e cigarette is different for each of us and smokers find something in what they smoke that they like - sharpness - smoothness - after taste or no after taste etc. Some e-cig users have said they like the slight sweet aftertaste which is possible with Vanilla and Chocolate flavour e-cigs. The Table above is the personal opinion of our tasters and is just an initial starters guide. We suggest that first time e-cig users try different flavour/strength combinations over time to get it right. Don't give up if you don't like the taste, try a different flavour.

The ideal way to get started is to try the different flavours in a V2 Cigs Cartridge Sampler Pack which is available in zero nicotine and 4 nicotine strengths.

If you prefer to use e-liquid and a mini tank rather than  e cigarette cartridges then try the V2Cigs E-Liquid Sampler Pack which contains 6 x 10ml of V2's best e liquid flavours.

Helpful User Feedback:

"I used to smoke a mild cigarette and Red 6mg is really good for me, 1.2% when I'm a busy/under pressure. Some customers also say Red is similar to the most popular American cigarettes. Others say try Sahara if you like the most popular UK cigarettes"

We would suggest experimenting with these to see which you prefer. Initially try the Red and Sahara options - please stipulate your alternatives at checkout. Then when you are ready for a re-order, include the Congress option. You will quickly find out which is most suitable to you.

If you smoke menthol cigarettes - simply go for the menthol or peppermint option - both are lovely!

For those who want to try something new then there are additional flavours including coffee and chocolate. I have tried many different flavours - say I'm old fashioned but when I smoke I don't want to mix concepts. If I want coffee I get a cuppa - if I want a mint flavour I buy mints or chewing gum or similar. Do try them though and make up your own mind.

And, as always, if need you any help or advice please pick up the phone and talk to us. We love to speak to our customers!
