Russian Vodka

Tested @ 2% & 5%Diluted in 70/30 0 Nicotine

Tested on a RX200s with a Bonza 0.14 ohm dual coil Ni80 Flaptons @ 130w.

Manufacturers description – “ A sharp Russian vodka flavour that will open many opportunities to create some of the finest beverage e-liquid recipes. We all know that vodka goes with absolutely anything and when it comes to e-liquid its uses are equally dynamic. Create recipes such vodka and orange, spritzers, watermelon martinis’, candy infused vodka and many more. Pairing vodka works in beverage, fruity, dessert and various other styles of e-liquid making. This is definitely a great flavour to carry in your arsenal if you’re looking for that authentic vodka taste.”


2%:- Very light Vodka type taste with a very mild throat hit.

5%:- This now has a very slight grassy taste to it, much like Żubrówka Bison grass Vodka, the Vodka taste has also increased.

7 Day steep

2%:- No Change

5%:- No change

22 Day Steep

2%:- No change. This is very light, I’m getting a very slight Vodka taste, that very mild throat hit has now steeped out, I believe this is too light to be used at this % apart from maybe as an accent flavour, I remixed at 5% at this point.

5%:- The generic Vodka taste has now come out fully, the light grassy like taste is still present , I’d compare this to a Bison grass Vodka, Żubrówka, than a typical Vodka. There is a barely discernible throat hit at this %. With this being an alcohol flavour, I was expecting it to be harsher than it is. This % seems right as a starting point for a main flavour in a mix.

Suggested Usage

Due to how light this is I’d use as a main note 5%-7%, Background 4%-5%, Accent 2%-4% and standalone at 7%- 12%.

I’d use with other Vodkas, Fruits, Candies, Tonic water I’d avoid strong concentrates unless using towards a standalone %.

If using with strong/dominant flavours I’d push this up to 6%-7% to be able to taste it as the first flavour in a mix.

VTA Recommend 2%-5% in a mix and Standalone 5%-9%
