Manufacturers description – “This 3 fruit traditional English style marmalade will be the key ingredient for your next e-juice recipe. This flavour is intended to be mixed with other fruits or to be used in bakery, tarts, and dessert type e-liquid recipes. It comes with a very low sweetness although classed as a marmalade we’ve deliberately kept it versatile to work and fit into your flavor creations.”
Jam like mix of fruits, I taste Kiwi, Strawberry and Orange
7 day steep
14 day steep
28 day steep
No Change. This starts off as a sweet slightly tart Jam like flavour of the 3 fruits of Kiwi, Strawberry, Orange.
This has a sticky and full mouthfeel, the kiwi comes first followed by that strawberry like taste with the orange being right at the end with a slight bitterness, this makes me believe that the Orange flavour I taste may be more of a Bergamot than a sweet orange, however that bitterness may also be due to it being the rind of an orange.
I’d use this as a Accent 0.5%-1%, Background 1%-2%, Main 2%-3.5%. Standalone 3.5%-6%
While this isn’t what I would think of as an English marmalade which I associate with Orange, I have since found out that a Marmalade is a name to describe a fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits boiled with sugar and water. This is exactly what you get here, the fruit is slightly tart with a mild sweetness and gives a Jam like mouthfeel, this may be useful as an accent flavour to give a fruit mix a jam like quality where you are unable to use an additive such as VTA Jam-It. At a higher percentage this may be useful to provide the filling in doughnuts or as a mixer with Gins.
I’d use this with Citrus Fruits, Bakery, Creams, Custards, Jams, some Alcohols.
