When you survey the landscape of today’s vaping industry, it becomes very obvious that menthol e-liquid has more fans than ever – and there are plenty of good reasons for that. The first reason will probably be obvious to you if you’ve paid attention to regulatory matters over the past few years: menthol cigarettes are now banned in the UK. Menthol e-liquids, on the other hand, have been allowed to remain on the market to encourage former menthol smokers to transition to a less risky form of nicotine consumption.
The second reason why menthol vape juice has been so popular in recent years is because the nature of menthol flavour has evolved and changed. In the past, menthol e-liquids generally tried to capture the experience of smoking a menthol cigarette, either by combining menthol with a tobacco base flavour or by using a very high amount of cold menthol to create a strong throat hit. Today, though, the latest menthol blends are using menthol in a subtler way, adding a bit of coolness without greatly altering the e-liquid’s base flavour.
In short, this is the perfect time to be a fan of menthol vape juice. With hundreds of flavours on the market today, the top menthol e-liquid brands have a wider array of options on the market than any one person could ever get around to trying. That’s why this article exists. Whether you’re already a committed fan of menthol’s icy blast or are just getting around to exploring the realm of menthol vape juice for the first time, we’re going to aid your search with this list of the 10 best menthol e-liquids on the market in 2022. First, though, let’s talk a little about the current landscape for menthol vape juice and discuss how to buy the best e-liquid for your needs.
What Are the Different Types of Menthol E-Liquid?
If you want to buy the best menthol vape juice for your palate, you need to understand the different types of menthol e-liquid that are available because it’s highly likely that you’re going to prefer one type of flavour over the others. There are three types of menthol e-liquid currently on the market.
Tobacco menthol e-liquids combine menthol with a tobacco base flavour to replicate the taste of a menthol cigarette.
Ice menthol e-liquids use a very high amount of menthol to create an icy blast in the mouth and throat. This type of e-liquid will usually use mint rather than tobacco as a base flavour.
Menthol blend e-liquids use a lower amount of menthol to add a touch of coolness to a fruit, candy or beverage flavour. A bit of menthol in a cola e-liquid, for instance, creates the impression of drinking cola out of a frosty glass. Because this type of vape juice only uses a little menthol, the menthol doesn’t really alter the e-liquid’s base flavour.
What’s the Better Type of Menthol E-Liquid: Freebase or Nic Salt?
When you examine the selection of menthol vape juice here at Simply ELiquid, you’ll find that we carry e-liquid with two types of nicotine: freebase and nicotine salt. To make the buying process easier, we recommend not worrying about the comparison between freebase nicotine and nic salt. Instead, you should focus on buying the right nicotine strength for your vape kit. For small pod-based starter kits and vape pens, a higher nicotine strength is ideal. If you use a larger vape mod with a glass sub-ohm tank, your e-liquid should have a lower nicotine strength.
Without further delay, it’s time to introduce the best menthol e-liquids of 2022!

One of the best things about vaping is that it gives you a chance to indulge in some of your favourite flavours without worrying about how it’ll affect your waistline – and that’s where Clean Stay Bright comes in. It captures the flavour of a frozen raspberry ice pop with a fizzy sour apple coating. This is an automatic all-day vape for anyone who loves sweet-and-sour flavours.
