This was by far the hardest flavor I have ever had to review. Why? Its because this is a flavor from the Mix Nix lineup in which they use a blend of free base nicotine and salt nicotine to achieve 3mg strength (for the bottle I got). They say the flavor is safe to use in DTL and MTL which I found to be true as I mostly vaped this flavor on a rda with dual fused claptons but the real issue is the rapid absorption of nicotine when vaping this flavor. I only manage a few hits before I get that fullish feeling that for me indicates Ive had my fill of nicotine. Now that is an issue for me because I love the act of vaping and getting my fix after a few minutes. You can see how getting my fix in under 5 hits is a problem for me. Anyway, thats enough of that, so lets get on with the review.
*Gold Mix Nix by Premium Labs – 3 mg FB & 3 mg NS*
RDAs with a single and dual coils.
All setups use Rayon as I find that gives a cleaner taste with a short break in time.
Coils are everything from standard coils to fancy fused clapton coils and when possible Coils by Afzal Hanif.
Lower watts (Below 4v)
Prominent taste of banana right at the start that mixes with a nice toffee taste ending with a nutty pecan note. No sweetness felt at this range.
Higher watts (Above 4v)
While I cant say I taste banana at this range, the most prominent notes are pecans and toffee. Im pretty sure there is some cream in there but what I feel overwhelmed with is the taste of nuts. Expect a decent level of sweetness.
I have already talked about the rapid nicotine satisfaction that this flavor gives so those of you that are looking to DTL a flavor that gives you rapid nic satisfaction or you want to lower your juice consumption then the Mix Nix lineup are your best bet. That being said, the Gold Mix Nix flavor isnt a particularly brilliant iteration of the flavor description. I have certainly vaped much better dessert flavors like Smash Mouth. Anyway, the flavor I got might also been impacted by the level of nicotine it had. It wasnt a usual 3mg FB nicotine flavor after all and we know that nicotine strengths impact flavor, so I would have to give it the benefit of the doubt.

In case some of you are new and dont know what nicotine strength to get just go through the list below and decide. Not every flavor is available in every nicotine strength however and the best way to find out is to ask the vendor. This list will be present in every review from now on regardless of whether or not that flavor comes in the listed strengths. The strengths do not mean MG per bottle but rather MG per ML.
- None = 0 mg.
- Very Smooth = 1.5mg (Direct lung vaping/Subohming territory).
- Soft = 3mg (Direct lung vaping/Subohming territory).
- Light = 6mg is approx equivalent to smoking 10 light cigarettes a day.
- Medium = 12mg is where MTL territory starts and this strength is best for a half a pack – a pack a day smokers.
- Strong = 18mg should be used by people who find 12mg too less or who smoked a pack of hard cigarettes a day.
- Very Strong = 24mg is not usually available in the market but some local blenders might make a custom strength flavor for you on request. Bear in mind this is a very high level of nicotine and usually 18mg does the trick. In case you are wondering, this is best for chain smokers and/or those that smoke a couple of packs a day of hard cigarettes.
Final Thoughts on Gold Mix Nix by Premium Labs
Throat Hit : The higher the score, the smoother the flavor.
08/10 – Some harshness that really isnt a deal breaker.
Flavor Accuracy: A high score here means that the flavor’s taste matches the manufacturer’s claimed flavor description. Basically if it says its mango cream and tastes like mango cream then it gets a 10.
09/10 – “A homemade original, Banana Cream Pie drizzled with toffee, lightly dusted with pecans and topped with a smooth whip cream.” A decent iteration but the nicotine impacts the flavor too much to let some of the milder flavorings come through with full force.
Menthol: Rating of menthol levels in menthol flavors. A rating of 10 means very high and 1 means a slight hint of menthol.
-/10 – Not a menthol flavor.
Go for it: If you like dessert flavors. If you want to vape a flavor that isnt consumed so fast.
