Much prefer this to TFA - I don't get pepper exactly from that, but I do get a weird, gritty, savoury off-note which really puts me off. Also I find TFA tastes strongly of butter - I don't taste butter in real ice cream, and i don't want it in my vape. This has none of those problems. Smooth, rich, authentic, delicious vanilla ice cream is all i get. The vanilla note is pretty prominent, but not especially dark or spicy. Leans towards a dairy cream, but no butyric acid or other off-notes. Although this is still very creamy and rich, I don't get any butter from it (a good thing imo), and it's fairly light in weight. I prefer it to CAP VBIC, but they're both good. Full flavoured at 5%, adds great light but rich cream at 1.5%. If you boost this with 1% HANGSEN FVIC, it's just as thick & rich as TFA, and more true to actual ice cream. This is a very sweet flavour tho - I normally add a drop of CAP SUPER SWEET to my mixes, but if I use this then I can leave it out.
