In the past several months, Halo has released new e-liquids at a rapid pace and doubled its selection of flavors. When a company focuses on quality above quantity to the extent that Halo does, the concern is that the balance might be lost and flavors with no real audience could begin coming out. However, many of Halo’s recent releases — Midnight Apple, Turkish Tobacco and Belgian Cocoa, for instance — have been among the best they’ve ever come out with. Clearly, Halo is doing something right.
Long ago, I wrote to Halo and suggested that they develop something to compete with Volcano Menthol Burst, my everyday menthol e-liquid. To date, no e-liquid company has managed to come up with an e-liquid containing the extreme level of menthol found in Menthol Burst; that same amount of menthol combined with Halo’s signature vapor production and throat hit would be just about the best e-liquid on the market, I thought. I was told that a “super menthol” e-liquid was in development and that I’d see it before too long.
Judging from the flavor and level of menthol, I believe that Halo Mystic Menthol could be that “super menthol” e-liquid. Although it’s a solid effort and a great e-liquid in its own right, Volcano’s offering remains the king of the super menthols for now.
At first taste, I was surprised by the high amount of menthol in Halo Mystic Menthol. Halo tends to use a very light hand when adding menthol to e-liquids, and I believe that Mystic Menthol definitely has significantly more menthol than the company’s other offerings — even the recent release Kringle’s Curse.
Halo’s e-liquids are typically very strongly flavored, which makes them perfect for lower-voltage e-cigarettes. Mystic Menthol is fairly subdued in comparison; even at six volts, the slightly sweet mint flavor is quite mild.
Mystic Menthol is an excellent addition to Halo’s e-liquid lineup. Although it isn’t going to replace Volcano Menthol Burst in your e-liquid rotation if you’re a serious menthol lover, I would definitely suggest picking it up if you’ve liked Kringle’s Curse or CoolMist and wished for something with more menthol and a more neutral flavor.
