Being a menthol smoker (Newports used to be my cig of choice!) I like the menthol electronic cigarettes more than any other type. I have sampled a big variety of menthol cartridges from a wide variety of e-cig brands and I have to say, there is a big variance in menthol tastes out there. Today’s update is something I hope can provide some clarity on the numerous menthol flavors offered by some of the best companies offering electronic cigarette products.
First off, let me say that I like the “regular” type of menthol. So, a 16mg – 18 mg (1.6% – 1.8% nicotine content) is the one I’m speaking of in my menthol cartridge reviews.
The best menthol flavor is Bull Smoke’s Menthol Breeze. This is not only a fresh, minty menthol, but the updated cartomizers are white with green specks. Who wants to smoke a big green tip out and about and stick out like a sore thumb? I find Bull Smoke’s menthol cartridges the most realistic looking cartridges on the menthol circuit, and that’s why they are my favorite menthol cartridge.
Right behind Bull Smoke is V2 Cigs brand’s menthol. I’ve always liked their products and batteries, they are quite similar to Bull Smoke but offer a larger variety of accesories. The taste is great as far as menthol goes, but I don’t really care for a green cartridge.
Green Smoke offer’s something different. Their menthol is smooth, crisp, and almost more of a wintergreen. Think about chewing gum for a second. When you have a fresh mint flavor and then go to a wintergreen, there is a variance in taste, right? Same thing here. Green Smoke went for more of a wintergreen taste, and it’s a love-hate thing for most people. I know people who rave about it, and I know people who dislike it. I respect Green Smoke for doing something different and taking a stand in the menthol category, that’s where I stand. Although I would say that I really don’t like the dark aqua color of the cartomizer either. Bull Smoke really kicks butt here in this category by making a cartridge that looks so realistic compared to the rest of the menthol cartridges on the market.
Ever Smoke and South Beach Smoke brands feature the natural tan colored filter (cartridge) which is also quite respectable. These brands seem to use the same menthol taste and while they are quite pleasant, they aren’t my favorite when you judge strictly on menthol levels. As an overall brand, I rate Ever Smoke quite high and South Beach Smoke is no doubt an industry giant – you really can’t go wrong with either brand.
So there you have it, my menthol e-cigarette cartridge reviews and analysis.
