Halo Malibu is best described as a tropical blend of pineapple and coconut with a menthol or pina colada twist. The pina colada twist they mention is definitely there, but I suspect it’s the fruit and menthol flavors combining that create the rum effect. I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of this flavor, even though I don’t particularly like the taste of pina colada or rum. It’s the pineapple and coconut in this juice that really piques my interest.
Flavor and Taste
It tastes more like eating pineapple and coconut cotton candy while sitting by the seaside on a cool and breezy day. Sweet candy pineapple and coconut are the flavors that overwhelm your taste buds at first. The menthol twist is more subtle but you certainly feel it’s always there. Don’t be put off if you don’t enjoy menthol, it’s very light and it blends into the tropical fruit surprisingly well.
Because the flavors are authentic and they taste naturally good, it’s very suitable for all day vaping. It’s one of my preferred fruit juices for doing just that. It’s not too sweet, it doesn’t dry out your mouth (after prolonged vaping) and it’s refreshingly fruity.
Halo Malibu has a good healthy throat hit on the inhale, but it’s not as strong as other Halo tobacco e-liquids, satisfying, but at the same time not too overpowering. It’s a great middle ground e-liquid in the sense that vapers who don’t want any throat hit, will appreciate Halo Malibu as much as those who do.
Halo use a secret blend of PG/VG for all their juices, Malibu is notably thicker than other Halo liquids I’ve used. This indicates a higher content of VG, with that the Malibu menthol produces huge plumes of vapor on the exhale, make sure you crank the window if you vape and drive! In enclosed spaces it leaves a light fog and with little to no trace of any odor.
This being a sweet vape, the sugary contents combined with the high amounts of VG means that you can expect a shorter life span from your device. The taste of this juice more than makes up for it though. Because of its viscosity, you might encounter wicking problems on certain setups, particularly with top coil systems. I had no wicking issues with the iclear 30s (and flavor is far superior than the 30), once I removed the extra flavor wick that sits under the cap.
It’s easily one of my favorite e-liquids. I can go back to it again and again and I still enjoy just as much as the first time. It has a naturally authentic taste, a healthy yet tolerable throat hit and it produces clouds upon clouds of vapor. If using this with a DCT you might want to punch another hole so the juice flows more freely into the cartomizer. Halo liquids are not exactly cheap, but you do get what you pay for with them when you find a flavor you like, and that’s some of the best premium e-liquid available on the market. I can’t say I’m as passionate about the rest of their range, but then taste is highly subjective. As far as Malibu is concerned, it’s my Achilles heel.
