Tonic Kama Sutra

It’s a bit challenging to identify the flavors making up Kama Sutra. At the beginning of the draw, there is a bite, perhaps a sour sensation. On exhale, there’s a sweet watermelon flavor. There are also most likely some berry or fruit flavors mixed in as well, but they are indistinct.

Tonic Virgin Strawberry

Virgin Strawberry doesn’t taste much like strawberries in a realistic sense. But in the world of artificial strawberry flavors, this one isn’t bad, but isn’t great either. This one is candy-sweet and In real world comparisons, Virgin Strawberry tastes quite a lot like those individually wrapped strawberry candies.

Tonic Hitman

Tonic’s Hitman most likely intended to be an energy drink flavor—designed to taste like an energy drink. And it does, to some degree, but better. Who really likes the taste of energy drinks enough to taste it for an hour and a half? In actuality, it’s a well blended mixture of berries and fruit, likely strawberries and guava with some indistinct floral flavors throughout. Unlike some of the other ‘energy drink’ flavors on the market, Hitman has no mint flavors whatsoever.

Tonic White Peach

White Peach is a sweet, peach flavor. It is both sweet and mild at the same time. The flavor is a softer, lighter peach with virtually no hint of tartness, which when coupled with the sweetness, would often make for a kind of candy-version of the peach flavor. In this case, not so. White Peach is both surprisingly realistic, and very easy to smoke.

Bada-Bing! is a welcome blend of mild watermelon and sweet mint flavors. There are likely some other flavors in there as well, but they blend seamlessly and identifying them is near impossible.

Tonic Babylon

Babylon is a fairly common composition of sweet blueberry and mint. The flavor is similar to other popular offerings such as Starbuzz Blue Mist and Social Smoke’s Baja Blue. Tonic’s version, Babylon, outperforms Starbuzz’s Blue Mist in longevity, with the mint flavor lasting nearly the entire length of the session. Babylon also uses a bit more mint than other similar flavors.

Tonic Minty Dreams

Minty Dreams, as the name suggests, is very minty. Though the mint is not an intense mint, such as Nakhla’s Mizo Mint. Rather, the mint is a variety of sweet mints, probably of more than one variety, with an underlying sweetness which is likely a berry or fruit flavor, but it’s so subtle it’s nearly impossible to pin-point which ones.

Tonic DaVinci

While the flavor is distinctly peaches, the flavor is also sweet and mild and surprisingly realistic. In spite of no mint element whatsoever, the peach flavor is impressively refreshing.

Tonic Double Pears

Double Pears at the least smokeable, and at best pretty tasty. But, the flavor is really indistinguishable as pears. The dominant flavor is clearly a mild honey, with light fruit undertones.
