Flavored cartomizers. What do they really taste like?

Everyone knows that flavor is a very subjective thing. And trying to pick the flavor of something online is about as useful as trying to buy perfume online…LOL. So I thought I would try and give some good descriptions of our flavors to help you know what to expect when you buy them for the first time.

Tobacco/Regular Flavor

One of the most common questions we get is this one: “does the tobacco cartomizer really taste like tobacco?” The best answer I can come up with for that is that they feel like tobacco smoke (IF they have nicotine in them) and the feeling, or what we call “throat hit”, is more important than the flavor. I would not honestly say they taste just like a cigarette but they are made to taste similar. They have a touch of sweetness to them but not a lot. What they don’t have is that nasty after taste you get with a cigarette. And since all brands of cigarette do not taste alike most of what dictates rather you will like the flavor of a SmokeStik is really your own preconceived ideas.If you want to like it…you will. I enjoy my SmokeStik much more than I ever enjoyed smoking.


SmokeStik menthol is deliberately formulated to be different from other brands of e-cig.We wanted something that would appeal to people who had never been a menthol smoker and in fact many people who just can’t come to enjoy our tobacco flavor end up using the menthol even though they never smoked menthol cigarettes. I would describe it as being heavier on the mint flavor while still having that cool rush of menthol feel. What really sets it apart though is the vanilla. There is a touch of vanilla in it that softens and smooths out the flavor so you are not getting that harsh mouthwash taste. If you were a die hard menthol smoker and you enjoyed the harsher menthol’s then it might take some adjustment. But one thing I can tell you from personal experience that really is true…the longer you use an e-cig flavor the more you will come to enjoy it.


Again, SmokeStik specialty flavors have been blended especially for us. We did not want candy flavored vapor. We wanted adult flavors for smokers. In a totally blind taste test I could easily pick out the Cherry from other flavors. But unlike other e-cig flavors I have tried it does not taste like candy. It reminds me of cherry pipe tobacco. It is a tobacco base with just a hint of clean,pure cherry as a top note.I would describe the cherry flavor as mild.


Strawberry SmokeStik cartomizers are the most UN-tobacco like flavor of them all. It is what I would call a bold flavor. It is unmistakably STRAWBERRY! LOL. But again, not like candy. It is not overly sweet.  It is one of our most popular flavors.


The cappuccino actually does taste like cappuccino. It does not taste like plain coffee. There is a very bold milk flavor to it with the coffee/tobacco as a base. Many people love this one as a “dessert vape“. They don’t use it all day but save it as a treat. After dinner or first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee.


Vanilla SmokeStik cartomizers are my personal favorite and what I use every day. It’s what is known as an “all day vape” for me. Of all the flavors it is the mildest. And that is what I love about it. Too much vanilla flavoring to me is not pleasant. And it requires a lot of sweetener. Since we don’t add sweeteners to our liquids other than the natural sweetness of the glycerin I think they got this one just right. If you’re expecting something that tastes like vanilla ice cream this isn’t it. I would describe it as a mild tobacco with a hint of vanilla.

I hope this is helpful to anyone thinking about trying a new flavor. And remember….we do sell a sample pack! You get one of each specialty flavor along with one menthol. Give yourself a treat and try something new!
