Used in 393 recipes at an average of 1.009%.
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.

Increased the turkish a bit
A smokey Applewood on the inhale, followed by a thick Butterscotch on the exhale, with a dry Turkish blend throughout.
FW Butterscotch Natural 5%: Provides a broad sweetness and contributes to the mouth-feel. Most of the butterscotch flavor is on the exhale. Heavy presence in the aroma. NOTE: This mix uses the "Natural" variant or FW's Butterscotch, which is not as sharp and can be used at a higher percentage without imparting an off-taste.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl: 0.5% is just enough to bring a spicy complexity.
FA Desert Ship Blend 1.5%: FA's best Turkish blend. Sits nicely in the background and brings a smokiness to the woody profile.
FA Fuji 3%: In many recipe's, 3% will give you a forward apple. Not here; this mix is dark. After a steep, it's just enough to infuse an apple flavor.
FA Oak Wood: At 1% we get a strong woody flavor. Not a lot of complexity, but other flavors blend into it nicely for some depth.
TFA Strawberry Ripe: 1% is just enough to bring some fruity sweetness. 1.5% also works, but at 2% and higher, I swear it begins to mute everything in mix. Could just be me though.
Steep Notes: As a shake and vape, the Fuji is a little "on top" of the mix, instead of within the woody profile. Also, the butterscotch needs a 2-3 days to blend into the overall background.
I suggest a 1 week steep. After that, things will just continue to smooth out. Since tobacco's tend to continually develop over time, the Fuji might mute a little after a month or two. Try adding 1 drop per 10ml to liven it up, if you so desire. Also, color may slightly darken over time.
Other Notes: Developed at 85vg/15pg (max VG), 3mg nic on a Goon with 28GX2/40G 316L Fused Claptons, 0.3 ohms @ 70 watts.
Imagine if you mixed Brandy, Triple Sec, Blackcurrant syrup and then threw in a splash of Bourbon for good measure. This is what it would taste like. Take a walk on the darker side of life and give this a try. This gives you a delicious stiff drink without that pesky hangover the next day.
I used the Bergamot and Blood Orange to create a Triple Sec profile. It may not be exact but it was the ratio that I was happy with. If you do not like the taste of orange zest you may want to notch the Bergamot back a bit. The Dulce De Leche adds depth and sweetness to the fruits as well as mouth feel which is also why I added a splash of Sweet Cream. IMO a good hard liquor coats your mouth and lingers on the tongue. I am trying to recreate that texture. The Oak Wood is simply to add that "top shelf" cask aged taste to the Bourbon. If you do not have the Oak Wood you could get by without it but it really does pair well with the other flavors that I have used here. This tastes best after 24 hours and its optimal window is 1-2 weeks. After that the warm boozy notes tend to fade and the creamy caramels start to take over too much. So if you want to let it steep try cutting the Sweet Cream and Dulce De Leche in half.
This does not really need extra sweetener but I did try it with some Sugar Daddy Vanilla at 0.4% and it worked nicely. The photo was found on Google images.
An O.G. match made in Heaven . . . Five Pawn's Castle Long meets Fear's Cardinal. A smooth blend of caramel, bourbon, toasted coconut/almonds, vanilla, tobacco, and oak. The blend carries slight notes of coffee and cocoa, as well. I began this working on a clone of Castle Long and a Cardinal-based custard, when it dawned on me . . . drop the custard and make a Castle Long/Cardinal mash up. Even though it has not hasn't been around as long . . . Cardinal has far surpassed O.G. status, in my book. I mix this up 60vg/40pg. This works great as a SNV, but gets better with age. Enjoy with a cup of coffee blacker than Old Scratch's heart.
Ok guys, you better man the f*ck up before you try this. This is a mans mans man cigar. It embodies what you think of when you think of a man. A cigar that is reminiscent of Wood/Spice, Beer, Coffee, Bourbon, and tobacco (of course). If you don't have any hair on your chest, you better get some so this can knock it off and grow it back thicker. It needs about a week to sit before you try it, so that gives you a week to grow up before you enjoy this.
A Virginia Perique Blend with Burley and a hint of oak.

Whenever I’m setting out to do a plain tobacco recipe, I’ll usually have the general idea in my mind, and search through tobacco reviews to kind of fill in all the blanks. For this month’s submission, I googled “Irish Tobacco” and hit up this page for Peterson Irish Oak. Tobaccoreviews.com is a really great source for inspiration because people that take the time to write reviews for Pipe tobaccos usually use some great descriptions for what they’re tasting, and the reviews are sorted by “most helpful.” So you usually get some ConcreteRiver level reviews at the top.
I’ll read the top three or four reviews and start thinking of flavors that fit the description.
A freshly opened tin reveals tangy woody and dry grass aromas with an upfront sweetness and background pepper note.
So right off the bat I’m thinking FA Oak Wood (woody), INW TA Virginia (grass), INW TA Garuda (sweetness), and INW Black for Pipe and FA Black Pepper (pepper.)
The flavour builds down the bowl, and mid-bowl the smoke transforms into more nutty and wood-like flavours. Overall the flavour is dominated by Virignia and Burley, but it is very much a unique blend (and I wouldn't say this is a classic Va-Per). The perique is detectable and adds spice but the taste overall is dry-nuttier...
Alright, so we are going to need a nutty Burley and probably give that Virginia a little boost. I’ve been messing around lately with mixing HS No. 5 with FLV Red Burley to create a toasted, nutty Burley. So that’ll get added to the list. FLV Virginia is a nice sweet Virginia that will give a bit more depth to the TA Virginia (in my submission to mixersclub I used INW Sunset Virginia, which I’m really liking, but my first version that used FLV Virginia is really good, and it’s a more common flavor.) I’m also thinking the Black for Pipe/Pepper should be quite low, so it doesn’t overpower the Virginia and burley.
All this is from the first review, and I’ve mostly got it figured out. The reviews after I will start playing around with the ratios and maybe seeing if someone got something completely different that I maybe should consider adding.
If there is burley present, it's blended harmoniously as I don't pick it up as a dominant or distinct flavor.
Uh oh, is there a strong Burley note or not?! Should I drop it? Better read more. Scroll through and see “nutty” mentioned a couple more times and feel safe to keep it in there. There’s really only so much you can get from a few reviews, and eventually you’ll have to start making decisions based on how you want the mix to taste. I’ve been in a Burley mood lately, so my Irish Oak is gonna have some gosh darn nutty Burley.
Anyways, figured I’d throw out a little bit of my mixing technique when it comes to trying to create a real tobacco profile. In case anyone ever wants to give it a whirl.
HS Virginia and INW Virginia are both fairly similar to FLV Virginia. INW I would keep the 1.5%, HS I would go 2-2.5%. INW Sunset Virginia at 2% is also pretty nice, and has a bit of a nutty flavor to it that compliments the Burley.
If you don’t have FA Black Pepper, you can try FA Perique Black at .15-.2%. Or bump the Black for Pipe up to .8% and add .15% FLV Heat.
If you don’t have HS No. 5, get it. In the meantime, turn that Red Burley up to 1.3%.
