This is Dmc's first version of Boba's Bounty. I really enjoyed FE Black n Milk in this mix but Flavor Express no longing carries it. The sub for this and feel is close to the milk but has a little bit more chocolate.
FE Black Mile is the base tobacco used. It is a nice bold tobacco with hints of chocolate nice dirty tobacco cigar flavor that is mildly sweet.
FLV Arabian is used to recreate the spicy earthy notes with hints of fruit raisins that I pick up on from boba's at first I went .5% but it was adding to much of a leather top note so I dropped it to .25% to let layer in the center of the vape.
FLV Milk & Honey for the bakeries notes I chose this. I know its milk n honey lol but I immediately pick this profile from boba's and I do get underlying bakery profiles from milk honey not sure why but I do.
Saline I chose this additive to give that slight wetness and center mouthfeel I get from boba's as well to tame the Arabian. I know this will bring out the coco notes slightly but is not that noticeable. I feel we are on the right track with this mix. Phase 2 I may use some type of bakery that may be lacking a little but not far off. Sugar cookie maybe? We shall see. This mix though by itself is pretty good where its sits as far as being a good dessert tobacco. With a few more tweaks I feel it can only get closer
day 2 this is a very pleasant vape - mild and flavorful - 5 days - same mild and flavorful - okay this recipe is a good one now... I can only imagine it getting better with a longer steep but at 5 days it's really nice. I had wanted more cinnamon but not overpowering as it is you cannot really make out the cinnamon but the flavors here do come together to produce a great vape. It's just like the title - vanilla tobacco - and it seems just super simple even though the recipe has all this stuff in it - the vape seems very basic - vanilla tobacco LOL
I was aiming for a "spiced" type tobacco here and these spices from Apple Filling blend well with the bright, spiced nature of turkish. I added arabian to add a hint of bold tobacco flavor. Apple Filling adds plenty of spice to the mix, and Apricot/Cranberry just go well together with this for a good spiced fruit tobacco taste.
A cigarette. Probably the closest I've gotten so far. It's funky, smoky, and dirty.
FLV Arabian- If you've struggled with this flavor like I have, make a 10% dilution and start playing with that at .5%. It's strong and funky, but once you find your comfort zone with it, it is a pretty interesting flavor to play with. It adds a musty, grassy, earthy taste. Not something you want in your face, but it's nice when hidden in the base.
FLV Classic Cigarette- FA Burley, but usable is how I like to describe it. Grassy notes, a bit of ash, and a pretty satisfying throat hit. It's strong as hell, and even at 1% it is going to be the star of your mix.
INW TA Cuban Cigar- one of my favorite additives to use in a cigarette mix. Taste wise it doesn't add a whole lot. There's a pleasant Tobacco Leaf taste, but I use it mostly to dry things up a bit. Never had a cigarette with really wet smoke, so I throw this in to give it a dry smoke feel.
INW DNB- no burning cigarette recipe is complete without it! At least in my opinion. Gimme all the dirty ash taste.
Adding 1% FA Polar Blast (or cooling agent of your choice) can turn this in to a nice Menthol cigarette. I've given some to someone that was struggling to give up Newports and he said it was crazy how accurate it was to a Newport. Hated menthols, so I can't say much about that. But if you liked menthols or you're trying to help someone quit menthols, give it a go!
The Tobacco Base: FLV Arabian, INW TA Virginia, TFA Red Oak. Arabian tobacco has probably been the trickiest tobacco I've ever tried to use. It was dominating mixes for me at .1%. I never completely gave up on it though because it has something that I really like about it. It's incredibly earthy, musky, and a bit acrid. Very authentic tasting. Just so fucking strong. Perfect here at .12%. The Virginia is also very earthy, but more of a grassy/hay type of thing. Along with the TFA Red Oak, it really blends with the Arabian nicely to complete the base.
The Pumpkin Spice: this recipe was a request, and when it was first requested I hit up the googles to see what pumpkin spice was all about. Found an essential oils recipe to make a pumpkin spice scent, so I just went with that. Ginger, cinnamon, clove, Cardamom, and nutmeg. All things I was already playing with for what I had planned to be a Christmas recipe. I wanted to use some other tobacco flavors to make up as much of the pumpkin spice profile as I could. Why? Because why not? Cinnamon I went with FE Hongtashan. It's got a very distinct Cinnamon note to it. It's a warm and dark flavor, which is perfect for the season. INW Falcon Eye is for the ginger. When I first tested this flavor, ginger jumped out at me. Not much tobacco, but that's ok. I just use it as a ginger flavor. NBD. Nutmeg I went with FLV Eggnog. It's got a nice spice taste that isn't too strong on the eggy part, so I think it works well here to give me the nutmeg I needed, and also help the Hongtashan with the cinnamon. It doesn't push it too far in to winter flavor territory (or at least I hope not.) The clove and cardamom kind of speak for themselves i think. I originally picked them both up for an Arrakis clone, and I've been fiddling with them quite a bit the last month. Very easy for them to get a little out of control, so I keep 'em low.
