REVIEWS VAPOUROUND JUICE REVIEWS TROPICAL FRUIT PUNCH Percentage used + VG/PG ratio of mix: 3% at 70/30 | Throat hit: Mild Multi-faceted single concentrates have a tendency to be hit or miss, but I was pleasantly surprised by Tropical Fruit Punch from Capella’s Silverline. This is more potent than some of the other Silverline offerings and should be used more sparingly as a result. In keeping with its name, this comes across as a vivid blend of pineapple, citrus and cherry. It’s bright and distinctive and will likely need some help from other concentrates to reach its full potential. In a single flavour mix it can become a bit floral, but this is easily solved by pairing Fruit Punch with less fragrant fruits such as Capella’s Sweet Strawberry. An excellent foundation for any tropical mix. 178 | VM19 DRAGON FRUIT Percentage used + VG/PG ratio of mix: 3% at 70/30 | Throat hit: Mild GREEN APPLE HARD CANDY Percentage used + VG/PG ratio of mix: 4.5% at 70/30 | Throat hit: Mild Dragon fruit flavourings have long been a popular choice for mixers who wish to add a tropical accent to a profile without distracting from the main ingredients. Capella’s version is somewhat newer than its competitors and brings some different characteristics to the table. At three percent this will add intrigue and some tartness to fruit mixes without completely dominating the profile. Capella’s Dragon Fruit shares some characteristics with Capella’s Sweet Guava, but is a sharper, lighter flavour. Virtually any fruit mix will benefit from one to three percent of this concentrate and for that reason, it’s a great addition to anyone’s arsenal. Green Apple Hard Candy is a very simple concentrate and this makes it a good choice for newer mixers. It’s an upfront green apple with a noticeable hard candy accent. There is some of the tartness that is found in its real-life counterpart, which is something often missing from candy fruit flavourings. The potency is fairly forgiving too, which means you can use this concentrate as either the main body of a recipe, or simply to add a hard candy note to your favourite fruit mix. This makes it a versatile flavour that invites experimentation from new mixers who wish to avoid overly complex profiles.
