A dry, robust tobacco with hints of dried fruit, spices, and cocoa.
Connecticut Shade, Red Burley and Native work together to make a bold tobacco. Connecticut Shade is a leafy, dry tobacco wrapper that has some coffee and cocoa notes on the exhale but used to give a true cigar wrapper feel. Red Burley and Native are the tobaccos that fill that cigar. Red Burley brings depth to this tobacco layer, darkening it up and providing some nuttiness and cocoa. In my tobaccos I usually will use Cured, Native, or Kentucky depending on how much I need to dry it out. Native is the nice middle ground to dry it out and add some spiciness.
AM4A is a very nice tobacco that only gets more complex as it steeps. On it's own it is a spiced, woody aromatic tobacco with some dark dried fruits. I personally pick out some raisin, figs, and mostly dates in the background. I choose to use this flavor because it can be very different for most people and changes in many situations.
Milk & Honey is here to bring forward some of the richness of the tobaccos as well as smooth it out. .5% is a good place to start and if it is too dry than you can take it up as far as 1%.
This is great after 1 day, and then at 2 weeks it's even better. But if you leave it for 1 month you really get something special from the AM4A.
INW Western: I hated it at first. Probably my fault for testing it at 5%. Got rid of it a while back and picked it up again more recently, but this time tested it at .5%. Muuuch better. Instantly became my favorite “western” flavor. Leathery tobacco with some cocoa notes.
WF Vanilla RY Custard: Can’t really say I get the “custard” part very much, but it is a good vanilla with just enough of an RY kick to be satisfying.
Those two flavors are what I really wanted to be the focus of this recipe, and I think I got them to work pretty well together.
Decided to give it a little southern twang, so I went with some Kentucky Bourbon because other bourbon flavors hurt my throat a little bit without a decent steep.
The Am4a is there to add a bit more depth to both the cocoa notes in the Western and the booze notes from the bourbon. The best way I can describe it is a cocoa liquor with some mystery mixed in. It’s unique and keeps things interesting.
Red Oak just doing its thang to give some oak to the bourbon and it plays nice with tobaccos.
FA Shade has an interesting top note to it with a bit of a less aggressive tobacco taste. I needed some more top notes because it was mostly only getting the tops from some of the Am4a, and that one is still more hearty than it is top heavy.
Semi Tobacco vape with chocolate, orange and rum. The whole recipe was constructed while single flavor testing the INW Am4A. Am4A shouted for a FW Blood Orange. Blood Orange brought the FA Jamaica Special (Jamaican Rhum). Also, there are hints of cocoa in the exhale of Am4A. So, Double chocolate Clear TPA was in the game but I wanted it to be kind of bitter. I also wanted the alcohol notes of the rum to be absorbed by a cake. Chocolate Fudge Brownie CAP was the perfect solution.
The final result is a dark, bitter and sweet vape.
Nice Cavendish and cherry flavor with lingering sweetness. The Hangsen Gold & Silver and Inawera Am4a fill in some tobacco notes and brings this recipe more cherry forward. The room note is a bit strange, but not unpleasant. I'm still tweaking the Cavendish level as it might be a bit too much, but I'm liking it so far. I upped the Nicotine to 10 mg/ml because I mouth-to-lung this recipe and it needed a bit more of a kick
This tastes a lot more complex than it is. Am4a is a flavor that seems to give different vibes to everyone, and changes with each pull. Some get chocolate, I personally get more of a rum type of flavor from it with maybe a hint of chocolate. INW Tobacco C is a fairly complex flavor as well. It's a creamy, smooth tobacco, but tends to get a little lost in the mix, so I went a bit high with it, but it works. FLV Fig I have not played with much, but it is a really nice fig flavor that plays really well with the tobaccos here. INW Black for Pipe is here to give the tobaccos a little smoky boost, but also has a nice, dark fruit vibe that blends with the fig really well.
This one is pretty decent as a shake and vape, but that Am4a likes to change a bit as it steeps. So enjoy it fresh and watch it change as the weeks go by.
