Flavour Chasing

Flavour chasing is a flavourful adventure that transports you to exotic places with each puff. It's all about unlocking the depths of taste and making every vape session an intense and unforgettable experience. Discover what flavour chasing is all about and what you need to enhance those flavours to their full potential to make your taste buds happy!

What Is Flavour Chasing?

Flavour chasing is a vaping style that is all about enjoying the taste and aroma of e-liquids. It involves seeking out the right vape juices and devices that enhance and highlight the flavours because flavour chasers prioritise the taste and overall sensory experience over producing large clouds of vapour.

Unlike cloud chasing, which focuses on achieving massive vapour production through specialised equipment and techniques, flavour chasing emphasises the intricacies of the e-liquid flavour profile. It's also about using a variety of methods to get the most out of the flavours.

What Do You Need for Flavour Chasing?

There are certain steps to maximise your flavour chasing experience. It involves using the right techniques and equipment that can enhance the flavours. Let's discuss what you may need to achieve just that.

  • Lower wattage devices are often favoured by flavour chasers as they provide a more controlled and precise experience. Pod systems, single coil RDAs, MTL (mouth-to-lung) tanks, and single battery mods are commonly used for flavour-focused vaping.
  • Adjustable airflow is crucial for flavour chasing. By adjusting the airflow, you can control the amount of air that comes into contact with the coil, affecting the temperature and intensity of the vapour. A more restricted airflow tends to enhance flavours.
  • The type of coil and its resistance is also really important for flavour chasing. Coils with a higher resistance, usually above 1.0 ohm, produce a smaller amount of vapour, but they also intensify the flavour of the e-liquid.
  • High-quality e-liquids are also crucial. Many flavour chasers also love to experiment with the flavours and mix their own to find exactly what they're looking for. Choosing a vape juice with a higher PG ratio is often preferred because it enhances flavours.

Choosing the Right E-liquid

Let's dive a bit deeper into the e-liquids. Maybe you are someone who enjoys simple fruity flavours like strawberry - or perhaps you're into more exotic fruits, such as kiwi or mango. And what about some delicious desserts like apple pie? The possibilities are endless!

You can also choose your preferred nicotine strength. If you are a heavy smoker, choosing a vape juice with higher nicotine content may be more suitable, while lighter smokers or those looking to reduce nicotine intake might prefer lower strengths or even nicotine-free options.

Now, you probably know, or have seen, that there is more than one type of e-liquids. There are nicotine salts, freebase nicotine e-liquids, hybrid nicotine e-liquids, etc. So, which one should you choose? It all comes down to your preferences. Do you prefer a smoother throat hit or a stronger throat hit? Or maybe you want something in the middle? If you want to dive deeper, you can take a peek at our blog post where we explain everything in detail to give you a better understanding of which type of liquid to choose.

Regarding the VG/PG ratio of your vape juice, it is important to note that it can affect both vapour production and flavour. For flavour chasing, a higher PG ratio (such as 50/50 or higher PG content) is generally recommended as PG carries and enhances flavours better than VG.

7 Tips to Maximise Your Flavour

Now that you know what equipment you need and how to choose your e-liquid, here are some tips that can further help you maximise the intensity of your flavours and take your vaping experience to the next level:

Tip 1: Clean Your Tank

Regularly clean your tank and replace coils. Residue from previous e-liquids can interfere with the taste of your current flavour. A clean tank ensures a purer and more enjoyable experience.

Tip 2: Prime Your Coils

Before you start using a new coil, make sure it's properly primed. Priming involves saturating the coil with e-liquid and letting it sit for a few minutes to prevent dry hits and allow the coil to deliver optimal flavour.

Tip 3: Adjust Airflow

Experiment with the airflow settings on your vape device. Restricting the airflow can enhance flavours by concentrating the vapour, whilst opening it up can provide a cooler vape. Find the setting that suits your preferences and maximises flavour production.

Tip 4: Adjust Wattage

If you have a device with adjustable wattage, try adjusting it to find the sweet spot for your e-liquid. Different flavours may require different wattage ranges for optimal flavour output.

Tip 5: Avoid Chain Vaping

Slow down, take your sweet time between puffs, and savour the flavour. Chain vaping may cause the coil to heat up excessively, reducing flavour quality. Give the coil a few seconds to cool down between puffs for maximum flavour.

Tip 6: Store Your E-liquids Correctly

Store your e-liquids in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Exposure to heat and sunlight can degrade the flavour and quality over time.

Tip 7: Experiment with Coil Builds

If you are into rebuildable atomisers, try different coil builds to find the one that enhances flavour for your preferred e-liquid. Consider factors like coil material, size, and placement to customise the flavour experience.

What Are the best Devices for Flavour Chasing?

The best devices for flavour chasing are typically lower wattage devices that provide a more controlled vaping experience. Pod systems, single coil RDAs (Rebuildable Dripping Atomisers), MTL (Mouth-to-Lung) tanks, and single battery mods are commonly preferred by flavour chasers.

How Can I Make the Flavours More Intense?

To make your flavours more intense, consider adjusting airflow to a more restricted setting, using lower resistance coils, and experimenting with different e-liquid ratios. Additionally, ensuring proper priming of coils and maintaining a clean vaping setup can contribute to more vibrant flavours.

Is Flavour Chasing Suitable for Beginners?

Flavour chasing can be enjoyed by both beginners and experienced vapers. It's a personal journey that allows individuals to explore their taste preferences and customise their vaping experience. Beginners can start with simpler devices and gradually delve into the art of flavour chasing as they become more acquainted with vaping.

What Is the Difference between Cloud Chasing and Flavour Chasing?

Cloud chasing focuses on large vapour clouds and often involves using advanced devices and techniques to achieve maximum vapour production. On the other hand, flavour chasing prioritises the taste and sensory experience, creating a more enjoyable and flavourful vaping experience.
