A fanciful blend of blood orange & fresh figs with a dab of dark chocolate.
This is a surprising pairing of two apparent contrasting fruits, but therein lies the beauty of this combination, and the joy of DIY experimentation.
FA Fig, when paired with a touch of Amber, provides a sweet and delicious, authentic fresh fig, not the dried/candied version many are accustomed to. This is not the same fig profile found in Fig Newton, which a sweet fig 'paste' with little flavor reference to the fresh version. Some describe the flavor as a mix between peach, pear and passion fruit which does describe some of the elements but does not tell the full story. The problem in describing a fruit is that each has its unique flavor properties and it is almost impossible to describe any taste to someone who have never tasted it. It is like trying to describe an apple to someone who have never tasted one - it is just about beyond the bounds of possibility without referencing something which it is similar to.
To me, FA Fig is the quintessential fig.
FW Blood Orange is, despite it's new rival from FLV, still the undisputed king of oranges and just work better here. Somewhat bitter, slightly sweet blood orange with a hint of grapefruit sums up this beauty. It blends seamlessly with the Fig, to create a deep, somewhat unusual & familiar, deep fruit taste sensation.
HS Australian chocolate adds a touch of cocoa to compliment the inherent bitter notes form the blood orange. It keeps keeps the mix interesting by just sitting in the background with its mate, INW Shisha Vanilla, who needs no introduction...
Give this baby 3-5 days to mingle and let rip!!!
(Aditional 0.50% 0f WS23 and 0.50% sweetener optional) I added WS23 to mine and my vaping friends wanted it sweeter but I didn’t. It’s up to you if you want it sweeter and cold.
I called this Wutdafo because it changes from a burgundy gummy bear to a dark berry tea and bourbon mix depending on the heat you vape it at. Have you ever used Tea as a chaser to a mixed drink? This is like the bourbon and tea version of a dark berry sangria. I find that black currant and fresh fig are unique because they are both dark yet bright fruits flavors, Monsoon add some extra dark in nature berry notes along with a candy aspect and a slight floral note that accents the red tea very nicely. I added the sweet tangerine to bring in the added note of a sweet orange as to mimic a slight squeez into the drink and a slice of orange on the rim for a garnish, but instead it accented the candy notes from the monsoon. Vanilla swirl is serves more as a backnote and smoothing finish to this mix and adds mouthfeel. Pictures like this allow me to express my artistic mixing abilities without holding back my true mixing style. I like to mix dark intriguing complex juices that are not like your every day all day type mixes. If your into something different give this a shot it’s very good and mystical in its own way kind of like the picture.
A mouth-watering thick and creamy flan, infused with voluptuous fresh figs and a drizzle of honey...
I adapted my go-to brulee base to better translate into a flan by dropping the INW Creme Brulee a smidgen and boosting the Custard. The result is a deliciously creamy flan, topped with caramel.
FA Fresh fig is by far the best FRESH fig flavor and is exactly what is says on the label - a freshly picked, ripe, fresh fig. This, slightly sweet, figgy goodness is given a little indulgent kiss by a drizzle of honey. The honey accents the fig and elevates its natural deliciousness to make you want more...
As FA Honey is more potent than kryptonite, I recommend ONE DROP per 30ml. Any more and it will overpower the mix.
Give this baby 5 days to settle...
EDIT I added 1% Liquid Amber to enhance the fig.

This tribute recipe is for no other than Addy Tuney. A nice soft dessert tobacco, with warm leather and woody undertones, nestled under layers of graham cracker and toasted marshmallow, with a smooth layer of creamy hazelnut made even more creamy by the Milky Undertones, with a soft spiced fig note floating near the top.
This recipe doesn't need much more in the way of sweetener, but if you're adding any I'd stick to the 0.25% to 0.75% amount just to accent the sweetness of this recipe.
