Whoever decided to combine these flavors, I hate you a little bit. At first it tasted like a stack of pancakes with maple tobacco syrup on top. The description sounded gross when I just read it, but honestly, it's not as bad as I thought it would be, but I have a very good imagination. I don't like it, but it's not necessarily horribly disgusting, just insurmountably overpowering, like a juggernaut of maple syrup to your oral cavity. The maple and sweetness are FAR too strong, imparting not just a maple syrup taste, but the sense that you literally dripped maple syrup on your coils, with flakes of tobacco. After about a week of steeping, the maple syrup taste did diminish a bit, but it's still very strong. I don't know what maple bars taste like, but I can imagine them tasting like this does after a week of steeping. It is incredibly strong though. I tried 4 drops in more than 5ml of another tobacco flavor that seemed to work well with it, and the maple taste was still almost too strong. A finished juice really shouldn't work like a flavor concentrate. At first I didn't think that the flavors worked together well at all, but after a week of steeping, it is a bit better, just far too strong all around. I might try cutting a bit with plain VG to see if it's vapeable. My first impression of this was that it tastes like smoking some sort of mild cigar or cigarello while eating pancakes. I have no doubt that if I ever actually managed to vape this more than a TINY bit at a time that this would be a coil killer. FAR too much sweetness and FAR too much maple syrup. At first it literally tasted like vaping straight maple syrup with tobacco mixed in. High caution recommended.
