Tobacco flavors are for vapers who enjoy the simpler things in life. They don’t need exotic fruit blends that might be overly sweet. Quite the contrary, they enjoy earthy flavor notes that remind them of their favorite cigarettes and cigars. But of course, because these are vaping flavors after all, tobacco vapers also get to enjoy some great blends that use tobacco. In your local vape shop you might find tobacco flavors that are mixed with custards, coffee, and sweets, like caramel and butterscotch. In fact, one of the first vaping flavors ever was RY4, which used a tobacco base with hints of caramel and vanilla; still to this day one of the most popular flavors in the vaping world.
Fruit flavors are for vapers who aren’t afraid to take a leap into unknown territories. With great blends of multiple fruits, you get to experience sour notes, tart notes, sweet notes, sometimes mixed together in one flavor with great results. Combinations that would be physically impossible take shape when choosing fruit vapes, mangos from South America come together with lychees from Asia, which are then joined by apples from North America. Other flavors that are often combined with fruits are menthol and mint. Usually, these combinations are called “iced” or “ice” versions because they add a layer of coolness that refreshes along with the sweetness of the fruits.
Which One Should You Choose?
If you are a vaper trying to decide between tobacco flavored vape juices or fruit flavors, below we’ll give you some of the pros and cons of each:
- Tend to have stronger nicotine strengths
- Mixtures might include: vanilla, custards, coffee, caramel, and spices
- Generally, a stronger throat hit
- Earthy flavor notes and zero sweet notes
- Might have lower nicotine strengths (depends on the manufacturer)
- Mixtures include: beverages, menthol, mint, candy, and other fruits
- Smoother and refreshing
- Sweet, sour, and tart notes are usually found in fruit flavors
While this broad breakdown of some of the qualities of each flavor category will help you decide which flavor category to pick, we recommend you try and choose each e-liquid by their unique characteristics. You see, every vape juice whether tobacco or fruit, is unique, and in vaping it’s not rare to surprise yourself with an e-liquid you didn’t think you’d like. That’s why we have created four product recommendations, two tobacco flavors, and two fruit flavors that we think you’ll love no matter what type of vaper you are.
Oak by Double Barrel Tobacco Reserve
If you want a tobacco flavor that will truly satisfy, then we recommend Oak By Double Barrel Tobacco Reserve. This flavor is the perfect antidote against overly sweet vape juices. At its core it’s a classic RY4 tobacco with vanilla and caramel notes except that it also comes with subtle hints of hazelnut, creating a pleasant earthy aroma that makes for a great vape juice. Created by Double Barrel Tobacco, who makes all of their artisan blends in the United States, this is sold in 16 countries around the world.

Tobacco by Volcano eCigs E-Liquid
Another delicious tobacco flavor that can be enjoyed is Tobacco by Volcano eCigs E-liquid. This is a complex and rich combination of abstract and left field flavors that come together to recreate an elevated and sophisticated tobacco that is reminiscent of a flavorful cigar. Composed of blackstrap molasses, cocoa, roasted nuts, salt, and habanero peppers, all of these flavor notes work together to give you a diverse universe of flavors that is hard to put into words.

Breeze on Ice Nicotine Salt by Dream Drip E-Liquid
Just like we mentioned above, it’s common to see fruit flavors mixed with menthol and mint, and Breeze on Ice is a perfect example of this. A cooling blend of cucumber, kiwi, and strawberry that on the exhale creates creamy menthol notes as refreshing as a summer breeze. Crafted by Dream Drip E-liquid, a brand by the good folks over at Keep it 100, you get unrivaled quality and consistency in every bottle. If you’re looking for a fruit flavor to try, Breeze is a perfect place to start. Be aware though that this is a nicotine salt, which means it’s only available for pod systems and not for box mods. Breeze on Ice Nicotine Salt by Dream Drip E-liquid is available in a 30ml bottle and in two nicotine strengths of 25mg and 45mg.
Piña Colada by The Milkhouse E-Liquid
Another common blend of flavors that you’ll find in the fruit category is beverages mixed with fruits. A perfect example of this is Pina Colada by The Milkhouse E-liquid. The flavor is delightful and uses a mix of pineapples, coconuts, and a creamy vanilla frosting finish that creates a sort of smoothie you can vape. All in all, it’s an excellent vape juice that can serve as a perfect introduction into the world of flavored fruit vape juices. Pina Colada by The Milkhous E-liquid is available in a 100ml bottle and in three nicotine strengths of 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg.
As we stated before, the vaping world has a flavor for just about everyone. Whether you like the earthy tones and classic flavor of tobacco or the super sweet flavors reminiscient of your favorite tropical drink, there is absolutely something for everyone.
