Setup: Recoil w/ flavor barrel, Dual 15 wrap 26g 3mm Nifethal 70 coils @.17 ohms. 60w power, 450F temp limit. Full Cotton Wicks.

Testing: CAP Fig @ 3%, 60/40 VG/PG, Steeped 8 days.

Flavor Description: A dark berry flavor. Skews close to prune, with flashes of a more vibrant grape. Some subtle dark mustiness. Syrupy as opposed to juicy, with a nice round sweetness.

Inhale is dark and sweet. Moderately dense sugary plum. Exhale has some bright realistic grape top notes over that dark sweet prune base. Maybe picking up some syrupy raspberry there as well. Full exhale without being too dense. Sweetness tastes natural if a bit heavy and syrupy. Slight funk in there, more realistic fruit than any kind of dusty flavor.

Off-flavors: Nothing weird. A tiny bit bright, but everything fits well.

Throat Hit: Moderate. Warm harshness when vaped solo.

Uses & Pairings: My frame of reference here is pretty narrow. I've had fig newtons, and cooked mission figs. This steers closer to the fig newton side of things, but the actual figs I've had have been doused in some sort of pork fat so YMMV.

The prune and grape thing makes me think about using this to add another dimension to grape flavors, as those tend to skew pretty bright and candy-ish. 2% of this should bring back in a deeper, richer natural grape flavor. Or take it up a bit further and really cook those grapes and end up with something a lot more like grape jelly or jam. It would also help to darken up your berry mixes without adding that obnoxious generic mixed-berry note.

Should work well with brandy concentrates, brightening those up a bit and reinforcing the fermented grape note there. Also in wine/champagne concentrates to bring in some deeper red wine notes.

The dark and syrupy sweetness of the concentrate is a fit for panettone (sexy, sexy italian fruitcake) type of bakeries with dried fruits and roasted nuts.

Notes:

S&V concentration testing, this is super linear. 1% is a little light and perfumey. 2% brings in more of that dark sweetness. Starts to border on syrupy at 3%. 4% is starting to get a bit floral and that bright grape is a little obtrusive. A steep will help considerably here. I'm not enjoying this at 5% and over, as those perfume notes get a bit too intense. I'd mix with this at 2% to just punch up a grape, and go up to 3 or 4% for some full-on syrupy sweetness.

This is missing some of the richer date notes I'd expect from a cooked fig, but overall this is pretty great. I don't understand figs well enough to call it accurate or not, but it is damn tasty and seems pretty versatile.

Second Opinions:

/u/jonb622 has a recipe using this up at 7.5%. I'd say that is the source of the perfumey notes, but his notes on the concentrate are pretty good.

"The fig - Everything I've read pretty much crowns FA Fig as the best, but I decided to go with what I already had. Capella's Fig is surprisingly delicious, as I'm not a big fan of most of their fruity flavors I've tried. I've never tasted a fresh fig, so I can't compare. But I can say that this flavor is very sweet and pretty bold. Almost has a dark berry kind of taste to it. It's quite floral, but in a good way. At the percentage I used, it is the dominant flavor in the recipe. It's not overbearing (at least to my tastebuds), but the sweet and floral notes are definitely prevalent."

A golden, rich, sticky, gooey pudding. It needs a good steep so I advise you mix it and forget it somewhere for a good while.

This lightened up version of a dessert panna cotta uses Greek yogurt for a great tang that pairs well with the milk & honey. The creamy texture is a nice treat with raw figs and it's easy to mix. A perfect light treat for your vaping pleasure.. this was inspired by listening to luis aka Luadr speak on figs.. i just want to be clear that i have never tasted a fig outside of fig newtons (lol)..so i hope it turns out to be as tasty a vape as it looks as a dessert...

My thought process :
I wanted a nice creamy base to place the figs on ,so i chose FLV Milk and Honey along with FLV Greek Yogurt and Paired those with MB epic Vanilla and MB Panna Cotta for what i hope will turn into a nice and delectable Panna Cotta style delight for this recipe and The honey and super sweet will compliment the tangy and slightly sweet fig. As always Vape Happy Folks.... And Enjoy

fig's all grown up! fig smokes cigarettes with his friends and stays up too late! fig didn't finish college because he started working in the service industry and just partied all the time instead of going to classes! fig ends up working in an office cubicle surrounded by people he hates who he's sure make more money than he does! fig questions his own existence and writes sad poetry! fig doesn't sleep well anymore!

so. this is a fig tobacco that's got a nice roastyness to it and a sweet mouthfeel. flv's cured tobacco is really great, it boosts the soho and adds depth. soho is clearly a favorite of mine, it has a caramelly, better-than-ry4 vibe to it, and meshes really well with other tobaccos. cap's fig is dark and sweet and has a stone fruit/dark berry note that pairs beautifully with tobacco- it's a lovely, earthy combo. if you like tobaccos, you'll like this. this is my V2 and i feel like it's mostly done. if i change anything it might be to boost the nuttyness in some way but i'm unsure if it's even necessary- this is great as it is.

So long story short rules are rules. And even though I did my best to follow I got caught up in the moment, and did not check the website before I started. I used flavors that I know I had purchased the whole city in the past.

Before submitting I decided just to double-check and what you know it. Bull City stopped carrying flavor West black currant, which was the linchpin in my recipe. So as a hell Mary I had to substitute for flavor Arts offering. Which I don't own and have no idea how it's going to come out. But I can vouch for this recipe it is a great and unique makes of berries.

Going for an unique blend of mixed of berries here. Starting off with foresr fruit, adding a little extra current, to that flavor with FW black currant, and then giving you a little something unique with the cap fig.

Forest fruit- on its own is a fantastic flavoring, little harsh as a shake and vape, but calms down after a couple of days. Since we've been limited to three flavorings I thought I would go with flavoring that has multiple flavors. This flavoring is very strong and does a great job at 1%.

Flavor West black currant-can come off very Floral, and wasn't sure it was going to work here. Turned out to be a fantastic pairing with really bringing out the berries in this fruit mix.

Cap fig- I've tried using this particular flavoring with little success in other recipes. Took a chance threw it in the mix and WOW, it compliments the other berries well while sweetening everything, and just making it very interesting.

I'm super impressed with this combination of flavorings and can't wait to use it in a custard or Bakery.

Using my standard testing setup. Clapton coils coming out at .46 ohms, in my recoil testing at 70/30 with 3% Nic.

This flavoring is dark and delicious and should hold up even without the nicotine.

This is purely a concept recipe I happened upon while watching an episode of Bob's Burgers. The burger of the day was "The Fig Lebowski", so I thought to myself; "Self... the Dude likes White Russians... I wonder if figs go with coffee, chocolate and cream." Well, according to the Flavor Bible they do, so, off I went.

The result is surprisingly delicious. Smooth, creamy, with a subtle, dark fruitiness, it almost reminds me of a pipe tobacco! (a touch of your favorite tobacco wouldn't go amiss here) The INW Mocca is just a hint, but it's there. I bet you could swap the ratios between that and CAP Fig if it's more to your taste, but, though this is a first draft, I'm hesitant to mess with it too much, because it's really quite nice where it is.
