When the ban on menthol cigarettes kicked in across the UK as of May 2020, many smokers didn’t know where to turn. However, with the rapid progress of e-cigarettes, all is not lost for those seeking a refreshing kick. You can still get the menthol kit you require alongside the right amount of nicotine with some fantastic cool flavours listed below in greater depth. But before we jump into our favourite menthol vape juice with our updated list of top picks, first let’s explore where the idea of menthol came from and why it’s such a big craze in the vaping industry.
What Is Menthol?
Menthol is described as an ‘organic compound made synthetically or obtained from the oils of corn mint, peppermint, or other mints. It is a waxy, crystalline substance, clear or white in colour, which is solid at room temperature and melts slightly above’. You can also get menthol flavours in toothpaste, medicines and food flavouring. Peppermint oil is frozen and then the crystals from that are separated by filtration.
Why the Sudden Demand for Menthol E-Liquids?
Now the science behind it is explained, it’s only natural that the interesting flavour you get from menthol made such a splash for vapers worldwide. Although lots of vapers like to try fruit-flavoured vape juices such as strawberry or watermelon, there is still a desire for the classics too. What we mean by this is either tobacco or menthol infused e-liquids. Ex-smokers are used to these traditional flavours and a big selling point to switch from smoking to vaping is to experience both - as well as get the nicotine you crave. The 2020 ban on menthol cigarettes only accelerated that thought process as smokers sought an alternative. With that in mind, here is a rundown of the top 10 menthol vape juices you can find anywhere.
Top 8 Best Menthol Vape Juices
1. Platinum E-Liquid
Top of the list due to the refreshingly cool vibes we get from this brand. A sensational throat hit that hits the sweet spot at the back of the throat and a nice tingling feel long after you vape. Couple that with excellent pharmaceutical-grade nicotine and you have a winning formula for a lovely menthol vape juice that’s compatible with most vape mods or pods. If you want something even cooler which offers even larger clouds, try the 100% Vegetable Glycerin Arctic Menthol e-liquid from the same brand.
2. GeekVape Geek Bar
For those who want not just an intense menthol taste but a conveniently powerful disposable vape, you can’t go wrong with the nic salt throw away devices from GeekVape containing up to 575 puffs. Because you don’t need to change coils or e-liquids, the menthol flavour will always be clear and consistent vaping that never alters in flavour. And because it's disposable, you can pick it up, use and pop it in the bin when you’re done before vaping on the next device.
3. Starter Kit Cartridges
Some vapers not only seek an easy starter kit to make the switch but one that resembles a cigarette too. A year on from the menthol cigarette ban, what better way to get that familiar menthol taste and the nicotine you want than with a simple starter kit where you can add cartridges with the coil and vape juice already inside. This slimline vape is compact and easy to carry around on the go when you need a nicotine hit, which can vary in strength based on preference.
4. Voom Nic Salt Pod Replacements
Voom is one of the latest manufacturers who understand the desire for nic salt pods that offer a smooth level of nicotine in a variety of flavours. As well as eight other options including traditional tobacco, Ice Strawberry and Double Shisha Apple, you have mint flavoured nic salt pods with a generous amount of menthol draw on the exhale.
5. Vype ePod Replacements and E-Liquids
Vype, which is going through a major rebranding to become the new and improved Vuse, always leads the way in devices and e-liquids. With the cool and refreshing chilled mint pods packed with 18mg of nicotine, it’s ideal for new vapers looking to transition easily from smoking. You can drop the pods into the Vype ePod when it’s ready to top up with a replacement packing a menthol punch. Also, there are e-liquids available providing nicotine strengths of 12mg, 6mg or even vaping nicotine-free if you prefer via the Crisp Mint or Cool Collection Indigo Dive options (the latter has a hint of menthol).
6. Nasty Juice Slow Blow Shortfill
Step right up and witness one of the best in the business for producing creative vape juices that delight and thrill vapers of all levels and interests. With the Nasty Juice Slow Blow Shortfill, you get a fantastic mix of citrus, pineapple, a hint of soda and round it off a blast of refreshing mint on the vaping exhale. With a 70 to 30 VG/PG ratio, it’s the perfect concoction for delivering huge clouds when it matters most.
7. Hangsen 50/50 Classic
At number seven, we have the pick of two beautiful menthol flavours from Hangsen. These are ideal for any vaper - whether you’re a first-timer or looking for a gentle balance with your new device as a regular. While some like the sensation of fruit e-liquids or tobacco-flavoured vape juice, you can’t beat a super menthol hit from Hangsen when you need a pick up in the morning. Better yet, it’s finely tuned at a 50/50 ratio of VG and PG, meaning the cloud production and flavour matches the throat hit perfectly.
8. iQ Air Pods
For a bargain price, you can get a pack of three lovely menthol flavoured pods for your iQ Air vape pod device. Prefilled with 0.9ml of nic salt, it’s more than enough to sort out any cravings morning or night, with the 1.8Ohm coil also attached inside for ideal MTL vaping at a high resistance. A classic taste of menthol that marries up nicely with a simplistic device that’s discreet and user-friendly.
Last on the list, we have a wildcard shortfill that combines a multitude of flavours for a vibrant experience. Excellent for summer vaping, it blends a mixture of berries, aniseed, eucalyptus and most importantly menthol to give you a quality vaping inhale and exhale thrill. These particular shortfills are nice for mixing with nicotine because of the 50/50 ratio. While most shortfills typically feature a higher ratio of Vegetable Glycerin, this option focuses just as much on the throat hit once you add your nic shot and give the bottle a good shake (after steeping of course). The 50/50 Nyx shot is a perfect complement to this shortfill.
We’re sure there is something on this list for every type of menthol vape you require. And that’s the beauty of vaping - there is so much choice and flexibility you can pick and choose based on what suits your needs. If you like that feeling you get at the end of menthol vaping but not a fan of the taste, you could even try a nic salt blast from a fruity flavoured vape that has a kick of ice instead. Alternatively, the possibilities are endless with this range of disposable vapes featuring a wide array of creative flavours that will get the throat tingling. We hope you like our top menthol e-liquids and keep your eyes open for the latest updates as we continue to get more in stock.
