The theme for mixer's club was Duets. I decided to take my love for Cardinal and try to see if I could get more tobacco out of it. My problem with Cardinal was always that it was just never enough tobacco flavor. So I decided to try it with Brigade 2506 by @ChemicalBurnVictim as like a peanut butter and jelly tobacco blend.
The results were strange. I first just lifted the holy holy grail ry4 and mixed it with BFP and TA CC. That wasn't working so I added back in everything on both recipes until I had a straight mash up of the two. For one tester, I just threw in some Am4a on a whim at 1%. for some reason that mix worked better than the others. The two recipes needed a bridge to pull them together and I'm guessing that the slightly creamy Am4a was able to bridge that gap between the caramelly HHG and the darker brigade flavorings.
Based on feedback from @ID10-T, I experimented with the levels of Am4a to get it right. I sent him some samples to try with Am4a at 0/0.3/0.5/0.7/0.9% His feedback being that the Am4a stood out too prominently at 1.0 and I was inclined to agree. Testing at various levels we both agreed that 0.5/0.7 were indistinguishable.
So, here it is at the 11th hour as Holy Holy Grail Ry4 v1 fades into diy history... Sacrilege (Amped brigade 2506)
- I do like the 0.9 version as well. It leans more to that creamy bacco side than a mash-up and you can try that out too if you like more bacco and dont mind the distraction.
- just want to take a moment to thank the Mixer's club for encouragement and feedback and to ID10-T for helping me to get the levels perfect and trying out some samples to nail it down.
A smooth tobacco vape,creamy,with a nice coconut aftertaste and hints of chocolate.Kentucky blend is quite present,helping to keep the tobacco up front.Sweet coconut flv is more like a coconut cream and blends really well with the tobacco here.Although i shake and vape it the next day,it really gets better after a week steeping
Banana cigar with a hint of vanilla. What's in a while I get sick of Sweet bakery in custard Vapes. Tank or two of this clears my palate right back with the sweet stuff. This is in my opinion is a really good cigar vape. With fresh banana and a small hint of vanilla he might just forget your vaping a tobacco.
Finally discovered that the infamous V-GOD Silver vanilla profile was: custard! (plues some vanillin, and a ton of sweetener). This is no clone, it is way better (checked with buddys) and the tobacco is really present.
This (INW) Custard lets the tobacco shine, with different accents that make it interesting on each vape.
(FLV) Cured and (FLV) Kentucky give it the spice and smoke
(FLV) Red Burley adds tones of dark, sweet cocoa
(FLV) Connecticut Shade is an intense, full tasty accent (do not overdo or it reigns all!)
and (FLV) Native is the sweet connection to the vanillas.
(DFS) Holy Vanilla delivers (specially for the slightly vanilla blind, like me!)
(INW) Custard is the hidden ingredient, which loses its desert profile to support the tobaccos brilliantly.
Vanillas need to steep, tobaccos are great on SNV but will evolve pleasantly. Give it at least 4 days for 70% VG so it all blends well.
Having failed with many vanillas for tobacco (and I have like 8 now), being a bit vanilla blind (but loving the stuff!) was looking for a profile that hit like infamous V-GOD Silver. This $$ juice has an excessively sweet vanilla profile (saturates on my Entheon clone!) but is not too bad on an RDA, the tobacco is hidden in the back but is regrettably enjoyable. This recipe being far away, but IMHO much better! SNV okay, but vanilla rises in 4-7 days.
INW Biscuit - an amazing sweet, full, delicate vanilla biscuit which holds nicely with the tobacco
DFS Holy Vanilla - I'm afraid for a slightly vanilla-impaired like myself it is amazing, as hyped!
The rest is a classic Flavorah tobacco, which comes alive after 1 week steeping. I went with:
FLV Kentucky Blend - the ash profile, wich needs a little help from its colleagues
FLV Native Tobacco - probably my favorite from Flavorah, spicy bright (I vape it at 4% with no shame!)
FLV Red Burley - gives it the dark, chocolaty profile and connects with the heavy vanilla
Nowadays i'm hitting the streets way more often with a POD in my hand. When I'm at home - i'm back on my RDA's. However I've been chasing a creamy smooth cigar like sweet tobacco. But something that would register on the palate in a POD.
This is all that, its a cigar like tobacco (Kentucky + Red Burley) - backed up with a THICC and dirty cream (RY4 Double + CAP Sweet Cream). With a good Vanilla to hold the two together (Holy Vanilla).
Sweeten to taste - I like it at 0.2% SS.
This is based on Kopel's Southerner : https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/58127#southerner_by_kopel
I used the "this could work" approach in adding INW Black for Pipe and reducing percents of the Southerner flavors except for Lovage Root, which was doubled. The Kentucky Bourbon still stands out clearly, and in combination with Lovage and the other flavors, giving this a bit of chewing tobacco flavor.
Not sure how long this takes to steep since I didn't try it until 7 weeks after mixing, so I'll go with the usual 30 days for INW tobaccos.
Two of my Favorites rolled up into one heavenly place this one is inspired by "KRUTIALS" butter almond custard and "Fears" Cardinal taking the best of both worlds....I have a few versions of this but this is just a simple basic outline you can substitute tweak anything you like the power of DIY... I did however up the percentage of the Flavorah tobacco's for a long steep but you can bring them down to the original version. Add some Graham cracker or yellow cake if you like for more dimension..
