Proposed Juice Rating Scale

5 posts in this topic

Posted

I don't know if anybody has thought about this before but it's very difficult to describe the quality of juices. So what I propose is that we come up with a scale and some terms similar to wine, beer, cigar, etc. tasting. Below is my first pass at it. I'm hoping everyone will jump on this and expand the idea.

The Dr.J E-Juice Scale (DJE scale)

Spicy – 1=no spiciness, 3=slight spicy flavor, 5=hot like cinnamon

Sweet – 1=not sweet at all, 3=sweet but not overpowering, 5=sugary sweet

Harsh – 1=very smooth, 3=a little bit, 5=harsh throat reaction

Nutty – 1=no nutty flavor, 3=slight nutty overtone, 5=very nutty

Dry – 1=slippery and not dry, 3=a slight dry flavor, 5=very dry

Fruity – 1=no hit of fruit, 3=slight fruity tone, 5=overpowering fruit flavor

Bitter – 1=no bitterness, 3=bitter but not overly so, 5=very bitter like a high hop beer

Minty – 1=no mint flavor, 3=hint of mint, 5=very strong mint flavor

Medicinal – 1=no medicinal flavor, 3=slight medicinal taste, 5=very medicinal

Aroma – 1=no perceived smell, 3=subtle aroma, 5=strong perceived aroma

Strength – 1=flavor is very mild, 3=moderate flavor, 5=very pronounced flavor

vapor – 1=poor vapor, 3=decent vapor, 5=outstanding vapor

throat hit – 1=almost no throat hit, 3=good throat hit, 5=very harsh throat hit

I'll give some examples to help get this started:

Dulcis - sweet:3, harsh:1, nutty:2, fruity:3, vapor:3, throat hit:2

We can also use some terms to describe it such as smooth sweetness with a hint of vanilla

Midnight - sweet:4, harsh:1, Fruity:4, vapor:3, throat hit:2

Nice sweet juice with a moderate strawberry flavor with a smooth, slightly bitter after taste.

Awesome Vapor 555 - nutty:4,dry:3,sweet:1,vapor:3,throat hit:3

Very dry, nutty flavor with a hint of tobacco taste

I like this. It would definitely help me make decisions on what to buy!

Overall, I think this makes sense. However, taste can be very subjective. I think this would give a good overall impression, especially if several people give their ratings on the same juice. It would probably give a much better idea than people just trying to describe the juice in words alone.

I like this. So far the only way I've been able to describe juice is "I love it", "I like it okay", and "don't care for it". This helps.

There are a lot of liquids people rave about or say are too strong I cannot taste at all,so I would say it might help but you just have to try it all for yourselves.
