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.
Profile: Jammy Dark Berries and Tobacco
Preface: "I do not like tobaccos" is what I told myself for the longest time. I'm still not convinced I do like them. But Cabin, even though it's not a true tobacco, changed my mind. It's got me wanting to play with tobaccos a bit more. Finally, after like 3 or 4 separate orders I was able to get my hands on FLV Jammy Berry. When I got it and smelled it, I was instantly reminded of those Backwoods Berry Cigars. Ya know, those cheap ass gas station ones that come in a pack of like 5 and look like shitty blunts? Yeah those. Thus this idea was born, not exactly a Berry Cigar, but just a quick and simple Berry Tobacco.
FLV Jammy Berry - The star of the show. It's doing all of the leg work here, bringing the blend of dark berries building a main note.
FA Blackcurrant - Mainly just here to back up the Jammy Berry add a bit more depth and jammyness.
FLV Virginia - Sweet leafy sorta tobacconess. I pushed this up to 4% because the Jammy Berry and Blackcurrant are a somewhat powerful duo and it worked out wonderfully. Virginia falls blissfully to the tail end of the mix to wrap it all up.
I haven't had a bottle last me more than a week, but within that week, nothing silly has happened. Shake it. Vape it. Enjoy it!
There ain't a whole lot of crazy complexity or fancyness going on here. Just a simple and delicious Berry Tobacco for even the tobacco haters. As the always lovely @mlNikon would say...." ***ing mix it up!"
Dark, rich and rewarding tobacco . This ons is not for feint-hearted.
LB tobacco/Flv Conneticut shade - dark and morbid with deep fermented tones and accents of cloves and cardemon. In fact, it is so depressing it makes Norilsk seem like Disney land in spring.
We then drape the tobacco base in a macabre blanket of flv cured and minora blades while whimsically whisling to the tune of "Dress rehearsal rags" by Leonard Cohen.
Flv virginia - the sweet golden virginia provides the last sliver of hope that helps you cling on to your mortal coil.
FA black pepper - to burn your tongue, if you dare lick your wounds.
Its is a fantastically dark and rich tobacco profile with deep aromatic tones and a lingering tobacco aftertaste... Oh and it hits like a ton of bricks.
In a slightly intoxicated state on night, I figured a strawberry cigarette was a good idea.
When I woke up the next morning, I realized it WAS a good idea. This is a simple mix that somehow has loads of complexity. Notes below.
FLV Kentucky Blend/FLV Virginia Tobacco - After months of testing different tobaccos to create IPA Smoke, I realized that these two work really well together to create a pseudo-cigarette profile. The Kentucky Blend is earthy, dark, dirty, and deep. It has smokey notes in it, some subtle sweetness, but overall, it's just a delicious dark pipe tobacco that really gives some "ash" on the back end after a few days of steeping. Virginia Tobacco, is light and dry. It has more of that light cigarette tobacco feel to it. There's some bitterness that plays really nicely with the sweetness of Kentucky Blend. In this mix, using Virginia Tobacco at a higher percentage helps fight the overt sweetness we get from the strawberry and brown sugar. Back in college, I made a friend that rolled his own cigarettes using a blend of cherry pipe tobacco with some full bodied cigarette tobacco. I fell in love with those smokes. To me, the mix of FLV Kentucky Blend with FLV Virginia Tobacco is almost a perfect emulation of those cigarettes I used to bum from him.
INW Shisha Strawberry/TPA Brown Sugar - When working with profiles like tobaccos, custards, ice creams, etc, I've found that INW Shisha Strawberry works incredibly well. I typically rock the FA Strawberry/CAP Sweet Strawberry combination when I'm creating full fruit profiles. But in this mix, using that combination was pretty disgusting. Which isn't too surprising. Who wants a candied strawberry profile with a dirty cigarette? Probably no one. Or maybe a fucking coward. Who knows. But with INW Shisha Strawberry, we get a nice blend of a deep, slightly overripe, authentic strawberry with a touch of sweetness. I've read before that mixing INW Shisha Strawberry with things like caramel and dark sugar doesn't really work. While that may be true for typical application, we can see that this is not your standard strawberry recipe. In this, the addition of TPA Brown Sugar not only amplifies the nuances within the tobaccos, but also nearly exaggerates the overripe sweetness of the strawberry.
Shake and vape is definitely good, but after 3 days, the strawberries and tobaccos blend together into something special. Before the steep, the two stay fairly separate, but after a few days, they meld together and we get, truly, a strawberry cigarette.
This is a weird profile, I admit. It's strange, not an ADV by any stretch of the imagination. However, I find myself constantly wanting it for a few hits. It's really odd, really tasty, and a good way for ya boy to start off 2019.
EDIT: OK, anything below is out the window. It's gone through so many changes since I posted this that the profile has nothing to do with where I began or was striving for. HOWEVER, it came out to be a really tasty vape so that's why I'm leaving it up.
Was trying to emulate my favorite pipe tobacco I used to roll into cigarettes back in the day. It kind of took a turn when the profile matched, but the experience was just meh. Added some depth with the fruit and it rounded out nicely but nowhere close to what I was going for. Incredibly smooth.
This is one of those, that if you don't have all the flavors, you can probably mix and match, but if you're getting sick of the same fruit/desert mixes, winter is rolling around and you need a change, go for the Nic Riv splurge and get em all. You need these in your pantry anyways.
This my first 1-2-3 recipe. The Virginia Tobacco is a sweet, leafy flavor. I used TPA Pear and FLV Apple Filling to bend it into something else entirely. I wouldn't really say this qualifies as a tobacco recipe. It's more of a rustic and light autumnal fruit mix with a hint of cinnamon. The steeping part is up to you. It works as a shake and vape recipe, but FLV tobaccos are known to get better at the two week mark.
I derive from the sun, utilizing its energies. I'm here to communicate not just illuminate. (last sentence of a poem by Zoe Ann Grimwood, UK)
Solar Flare, a tobacco vape based on cookies and tobacco, gently embraced by a smooth Vanilla Bourbon cream from FA
FLV Virginian tobacco, a less harsh, earthy tobacco flavor, a perfect tobacco flavor to be molded with the spices and soft cookie aromas from the FLV Sweet dough and FLV Sun Cookie. FA Vanilla Bourbon blends the whole mix by adding a creamy layer and depth to this wonderful juice.
It needs 3 weeks (or longer) to steep before it gets a sudden flash of increased brightness :-)
With some guidance/flavor recommendations from CBV, this is my attempt to clone Marlboro Southern Cuts. Of course they're cigarettes so they smell a lot better than they actually taste, but that's fine as vaping tobaccos is often more like vaping the aromas of tobacco rather than actually smoking it. Plus these smell amazing. I've done 3 iterations so far and this is the closest, still subject to change/revised versions in the future. Yes I know it's a shitton of flavors, but it was for mixing experience, not so much for an ADV.
On-the-pack description: "Uniquely rich and smooth. Our master blenders begin with choice Burley, Virginia and Oriental tobaccos in creating the distinctly flavorful taste and warm aroma they call Southern Cut."
Personally, I get a really rich honey note when I first open the pack and give them a smell. Other comments on them often report hints of vanilla. When I smoked them, I distinctly remember a slight nutty bitterness on the aftertaste as well as an overall fairly dry profile.
INW Gold Ducat + Dark Fire: This is the honey note here. I remember when I first started getting into tobaccos I bought gold ducat because I liked the name, and when I did a sniff test on the bottle it immediately reminded me of that same scent I got from Southern Cuts. I'm leaning on it a bit here in this mix because of that, and Dark Fire brings some more of that honey note to really lift it out of Gold Ducat and put the fruit and cocoa/coffee notes I get from Ducat moreso in the background.
FLV Red Burley + FLV Virginia + INW TA Oriental: These make up the tobacco blend inside for the most part. Gold Ducat and Dark Fire are great vapes but they are fairly aromatic and I needed something to make up that medium-bodied tobacco leaf blend. I basically went straight off the pack's description here. My only gripe is that I get that hay flavor from Virginia here, but I don't want to throw off the accuracy of the mix and v2 is by far the closest I've gotten to legit Southern Cuts. If I am to make a change, I'll likely replace Virginia with FLV Kentucky Blend.
FLV Classic Cigarette + DNB: Bringing some ashyness to the party here. CBV mentioned to me that he gets some Burley notes from FLV CC and I had to agree with him. I think in combination with FLV Red Burley, the CC at a rather heavy handed 1% blends in fairly well but brings some of that crucial burning cigarette paper note. DNB is there to simply bolster that.
TFA Toasted Almond + Vanilla Tahity: As explained before, these are here simply as accents. I chose Toasted Almond primarily for that slight bitterness and dark toasty nut notes. It's pretty smooth in comparison to "nutty" tobaccos like 555 gold, which give me nothing but straight roasted peanuts so I opted to just use a specific almond flavor instead of another tobacco. Vanilla Tahity is an excellent vanilla for tobaccos because it's rather dry and also has some almond notes, but it's soft and sweet. These 2 can potentially be bumped up to 0.75% or even a full percent but I wanted to keep it subtle. The tobaccos are the star of the show here and I just want the occasional whiff of vanilla and almond.
This was an April 2018 Mixersclub submission
I should probably note that FLV Tobaccos & tobaccos flavors in general will gunk up coil pretty quickly
MENU: A burley & virginia blend tobacco with some honey & fig
NOTES: My WASP in here is the VT FIG. Tastes like black licorice to me. When i first got this flavor from BCF a week or so ago. I looked up Vape Trains recommended percentages. They suggested 2-5% in a mix and 5-9% solo. So I tried using it with burley and cured with FIG at 2%, and the licorice was all I got. So the challenge to myself was to keep it at 2% and push the licorice out of the mix & to get it to compliment the other ingredients. I believe I accomplished that.
The Conn Shade was used for a smokey ashy note. The burley & virginia are the main tobacco notes. With the Cured being in here to add to the tobacco notes and to help the other tobaccos survive a steep. The Milk & Honey adds some honey like sweetness which really helped with my Fig problem, also adds a little creaminess
