I've been playing with this recipe for about 6 months, and I've finally got it tasting like I envisioned. It becomes a rather luxurious vape after a minimum 3 week steep. After that, it really showcases the rich taste of INW for pipe flavors. If you're a tobacco head, plan on making double what you're already considering, as you'll notice it goes quick,
If you don't have the original version of INW Gold Ducat, Gold for Pipe is a decent sub, however if you have something smokier and less sweet, give it a try at the same percentage.
So, I wanted this to be tobacco forward, and I ended up bringing the Black for Pipe a LOT from where I originally had it. The for pipe combo here really sets the tone of the mix. I also had originally used Gold for Pipe, but decided Ducat made it a little smokier and dirtier. Gold for Pipe was almost too sweet for the tobacco profile I wanted. FA Oakwood added another level of depth to the already dark and rich tobacco with it's subtle woodsy notes.
The custard part had always been CAP VC, but no matter the percentage, it just needed something else. That's where CAP Butter Cream came in. It was neutral tasting enough, and gave the custard base a bit more volume.
So, in light of DiyOrDie Remix month, I figured I could release one that I came up with. This is the first tobacco that I really enjoyed. It got me started on my huge love for tobacco's, especially FLV tobaccos.
I was given this by a shop owner and she enjoyed it as well, she wanted me to try and work with it and see if I could come up with something similar.
"Harking back to lush lowlands mellowed by the mists of the Appalachian mountains, Golden Tennessee delivers a taste of light air-cured burley tobacco, with sweet maple and deep oak notes."
So, I looked around and tried several burleys, including a canadian burley. I wanted to see if the maple in it worked. None of these came close to me, except INW. I wanted FLV, but after a few months I realized it just wasn't it. Oak wood was a pretty easy one to go with. The oak blends with the tobacco very well, gives a great oak taste. Maple was a little tougher. I went through a few maples, and when I opened FA Maple Syrup, i knew it was the right one. I played around with mixing it and this is where I came. The maple seems high, but it falls into a bottom note after steep. The smell of the mix, when you open the bottle, and the vapor after pull is heavier maple aroma. The taste is a smooth burley, with a maple undertone, and oak. This is a very simple recipe to me, but I enjoy this and figured I would throw it out there for others.
Smooth earthy whiskey followed by warm vanilla cream.
TFA kentucky bourbon/FA whisky/FA oak wood - The two liquiors mix together well though both tend to fade, the oak wood is here to get them to hold their flavor longer while adding a subtle smokey note.
FLV cream/HS French vanilla ice cream/TFA toasted marshmallow/FW butterscotch ripple - the cream and French vanilla ice cream combine for a nice heavy cream for the whiskey to sit on. The toasted marshmallow and butterscotch ripple add to the body and mouthfeel, keeping it thick through the exhale.
FA maple syrup/FA torrone/INW shisha vanilla - the maple syrup flavor is barely detectable, which surprised me at 1% but it adds not only sweetness but richness as well. The torrone lends a hand to the texture and shisha vanilla is strong enough to fall in line behind the whiskey but not be overtaken by the creams.
This doesn't need long to sit, tastes fine right after mixing though the whiskey will mellow after a few days as the creams develop.
Just had Starbucks smoked butterscotch latte and thought I could make it better as of a vape.
Oakwood- slightly Smoky Woody flavoring Fantastic Four adding just a hint of smoke to the butterscotch along with boosting that butterscotch flavor.
Irish Cream- just the perfect cream for this recipe, very creamy and sweet Bailey's type flavoring just melds perfectly you with all of the other flavorings
Dulce de leche- if you follow me you know that I am in love with this flavor not only do you get a fantastic caramel note, it is also super dense and creamy.
Butterscotch- because she can't have smoked butterscotch without butterscotch 😜😜😜
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.
Three drops TFA Ethyl Maltol per 10ml.
This is the recipe I was going to post for the competition, but I didn't enter. I can't taste strawberry very well, so if someone could mix this up and let me know, I would appreciate it. It's a strawberry apple streusel, or at least as close as I can get. I can't taste strawberry's but I have had people test this on my behalf and got it as close as I could. I'm like Beethoven creating music while deaf. Only I'm not talented. Or obsessed with poop.
