During this crazy time we're going through, with all the hype, excitement, and anguish over the Coronavirus, it seemed like a perfect time to SLOW things down a bit, and settle in for a bit, and get up some reviews of some really kick ass smelling one shots. Huge thanks out to @zippy for hitting me up, and sending me out some samples for this review from her site. https://www.diyflavorchaser.com/ Now normally when you purchase one shots they are typically from one mixer, one flavor brand or house, but after checking out her website, I was VERY excited to see not only that they offered mixes from TEN mixers, but our one and only @woftam was in the list. Who is Zippy ?? Only The Best DIY Flavor Chaser brings together some of the top mixers in the industry to create unique concentrated one shot blends for you to enjoy. We have many one shot concentrates to choose from including fruits, deserts, bakeries, and custards. Chase your flavor today! Having received 7 one shots to test, and having steeped them ALMOST long enough, sneaking sneak sniffs of them, I'm VERY excited to try these out, and I was picking up on some really good smells. Their current list of one shot brands are: Mixen Vixens Fresh Immortal Luke Loop Made in Italy Marshall mINikon MysterFog Noted Sheerluck Ohms Tam Vapes The Florida Kayaker The Juice Fairy Vaping Community Zippy Dave Flowers Coil Design SessionDrummer Absolutely love to see this type of website, and support for local mixers, especially @woftam, @TamVapes, @lukeloop. Zippy was not only kind enough to supply 7 testers, but also included mixing percentages, and steep times. The steep time is ALMOST done, but I wanted to get this thread started. Her website is cleanly laid out, with each mixers own area, all the available recipes, mixing percentages, steep times, and total yield for the one shots purcahsed sizes. Take some time to peek around her site, including the plethora of links for each mixer that are included. ALL testing done on a SteamCrave RDTA v.1 with dual vertical, 7 wrap, single wire Kanthal coils, with fresh cotton and burned coils before every test. All were tested @ 3mg NIC, in a 70v/30p mix following the provided steeping times. **TESTING** **Italian Gelato (Made In Italy) 17% (3-14-20)** -- FIRST one on deck, and excited as hell to try these out, as @zippy currently has no less than TEN different mixers one shots available on her site. I currently have a go to Caramel Macchiato and was curious to see how, or if this was comparable. I don't know who the "Italian" is, but I think I need to meet him now, as this one was exceptionally delicious !!! In a nutshell this is an Espresso Gelato, but that really doesn't do it justice. Being a big fan of FA's Espresso, I had assumed that would be here, but curiously not. The coffee/espresso's presented as more complex than originally assumed, and it seamlessly layered into the creamy gelato base. Gelato is simply Italian ice cream, but it differs from American ice cream (basically) by using more milk, less cream, little to no egg at times, and is much denser. This mix perfectly captured that aspect of it, and I got some hints of hazelnut in there, which only worked to deepen this mix even further. Quite a lot going on here, and fairly complex. Continued vaping just left me wanting more hehe. The espresso/coffee although forward, didn't overshadow the creamy backend, which proved to be a skilled approach. Mid level sweetness pushed this into an ADV category, the forward and rich espresso gave it the punch, and the entire mid to finish of the vape, the creamy sweet gelato finished it out. You may not always be able to explain a "complex" mix, but you'll know it when you taste it, and this IS one of them. It is interesting to vape, as the hard hitting espresso/coffee front end, never overshadows the creamy sweet gelato. Very intriguing vape, and handily a **10/10**. ______________________________________________________________________________________ **Frooty Loop Donut (Luke Loop) 15% (3-15-20)** -- Onboarding with number TWO in this series from @lukeloop. What do we all (most of us) just HATE, every time we try out a new donut ?? Well, it's either PLAYDOH, or it's not even CLOSE to a donut, or at least those are MY fears. Well, I've got grrrrrrreat news, as there was NO Playdoh in this one, AND, I got Donuts !!!! That's already TWO major hurdles overcome, just out of the gate. Regarding the donut (doughnut) I actually wish I could have had just a little bit MORE of it, BUT, even at the level it was at, I got quite a nice little serving up of a cakey donut that that layered in perfectly WITH the Frooty profiles in here. Nothing greasy, or deep fried, which were two more plusses in my book, but a mid level cakey donut. Onto the Frooty part. Obviously Luke wasn't about to throw in any lemon pledgy-ness in here, and he didn't. The Frooty (loops) part was actually very interesting, and I can't tell exactly how he did it, but it was a layered approach. No off-putting lemon, yet still present, and maybe a smidge of lime, and I def. picked up on an orange push. Not bad, not overbearing, but it seemed to really pull the froot loops into a nice even sled, that the donut was riding on. Sweetness was higher, but nowhere close to commercial levels (as checked by lack of coil gunk), and it almost had that lip smacking effect, which again, was perfect for this recipe. About the only thing that seemed it could be boosted might be the donut, just a smidge. The donut seemed to do double duty here, first as the donut, and 2nd as almost a grain booster for the loops. I think trying to do a donut that's perfect for EVERYONE is impossible, and this one was about as close as you could get, with only minor markoffs for almost enough donut. One of the BEST looper-esq mixes I have ever had, and I've had a LOT. **9.75/10**.
