A thick vanilla custard with a blanket of zingy lemon :)
This recipe was requested and as I’ve been vaping killer custard’s lemon custard recently I happily obliged.
Laying down the foundation I start with Cap custard V1 and FA premium to get that heavy mouthfeel and generic custard taste then FLV vanilla pudding and Cap sugar cookie puts my spin on things to make the base a bit silkier and sweetens things up a bit and they all work together brilliantly. This base can be used for any other fruit of your choice or can be vaped on its own and is still very satisfying.
Enter the lemon... I have to start with FA sicily as it is defintely the best lemon in my opinion, I know blah blah it fades blah, it is prone to fading but adding sour lemon in here at 0.75 gives the Sicily another layer and then with VTA sherbet helping them both out you have a really good lemon, I know you looked at the recipe before reading this and thinking to yourself “WTF, sherbet and custard” but forget the custard for a minute, Marry all those lemons together appreciate the acidity, appreciate the tartness, appreciate the zingynes... you won’t have to ignore any “evercescent/fizz” at 1% it’s not there it’s just another citrus that’s in a twisted citric threesome with FA Sicily and VTA sour lemon ;)
I’m gonna go right ahead and say this lemon custard is “The best yet”......................... In my opinion 😏
Add sweetener to suit your tastes, I recommend 0.5% super sweet as it also really helps that lemon and drags it to the end of the vape but to each their own :)

Coconut custard and Tobacco... I wanted a tobacco that would be prominent Kentucky blend does a good job at that and Red burley to back it up .The custard is pretty basic my go to Capella v1 and Cap NY cheesecake & Flavorah vanilla pudding purilum super sweet @ .25% just enough to blend everything together. I do have another version of this recipe with FA almond if that's your thing add 1%
I used to be addicted to this stuff before I started DIY. Took me a while to track down the cigar / tobacco element they use in the original. Finally got my hands on SC Cohiba and had a revelatory moment. Still not 100% sure if it's as simple as this, but if they're using anything else, I'd bet my house it's another SC tobacco. (They are not, let me repeat, they ARE NOT using any FA or Inawera or TFA tobaccos with variations of the word Cuban in their names. I found this out the hard way by testing out these abominations. Take my word for it and save your money.)
That said, this really hits all the main notes in the original. It's a simple but satisfying profile that keeps me interested for weeks on end.
If you want to replicate the Silver version, adding 0.25-0.35% FA Honey to this mix will get you very close. (I think they're using SC Black Mile or another SC tobacco alongside Cohiba for added spice in the Silver, but I'm not 100% sure on that, which is why I've not yet released my official remix.)
This works off the shake, but obviously benefits from a 7-14 day steep, and gets better from there, as CAP VC matures.
