Had to take a break from testing/mixing FA Tobaccos . . . so, I made this. A banana/coconut pudding RY4. The bones of this are the beautiful duo of coconuts in hashslingingslashur's Leche de Coco with 2 fantastic bananas (TFA Banana Nut Bread and Solub Arome's Banana Flambe), FA Bavarian Cream, and the underrated JF Cookie v2 making up the pudding. 2 RYs (JF RY4 Double and WF Vanilla Ruyan) along with FLV Smoked Butterscotch making up the RY4. Enjoy!
An RY4 mix I've been working with folded into Alfred Pudding's Cheesecake layer. I keep coming back to this, and it doesn't get old. Tasty as hell off the shake and only gets better given time. For me, this reaches ADV status . . . from pairing it with coffee in the morning, to accompanying a sip of whiskey at night, and everything in between.
This is a sweet, robust RY4 tobacco slathered in vanilla-laced caramel backed up by the velvet-smooth cream of cheesecake . . . I'm in my happy place.
Listening to this amazing Deftones Mix throughout concept, creation, and testing. The colors/visuals at about the 4min 15sec mark is what sparked the idea.
A butterscotch pecan RY4 with light almond
Made on Live Mixing:
I wanted something semi simple to vape while playing Red Dead Redemption 2. Since Im not a real cowboy I wanted something sweet with definitive tobacco note (JF RY4 DOUBLe) building on the sweet side of the profile, I decided to use sweets that would compliment Ry4. so dulce de leche and a hint of FA vanilla were my choice, instead of a cream I chose Vanilla Pudding because i like the mouthfeel and flavor it provides after a few days steep.
I made a nicsalt version of this so that I could get a nice nic buzz from my Sourin Drop as I bring justice to the Digital wild west! Hope y'all like it.
Flavor Menu: Creamy, Nutty, Tobacco forward RY4
JF RY4: adds a nice caramel with a slight hint of tobacco
Marzipan: Adds some sweet creaminess with a hint of nuttiness
Nougat: Recently just got this one and knew right away I wanted to put it in a tobacco. Adds some woody and nuttiness to the recipe.
Red Burley: adds a woody tobacco note
Native: Brings a really nice tobacco note with some spice.
This is Black Phillip's softer, more gentle, younger brother. The shift to fall weather, the Halloween season, and the arrival of FLV Smoked Butterscotch necessitated the creation of this remix.
This is a smoky, fall custard. In place of FA Black Fire, I used the much more forgiving FLV Smoked Butterscotch. The result is a butterscotch custard kissed by tobacco and smoke. Works as a SNV, but give it a few days and the flavors really come together. Enjoy.
My nuts in your coffee RY4.
I wanted a nutty sweet dessert type RY4 that was similar to my PB Cardinal mix that didn't blacken coils so quickly. I love Holy Holy Grail and FLV tobaccos but they kill coils and cotton pretty quickly.
JF RY4 Double is a great base to build upon. It's very caramel/vanilla forward and just needs a boost here and there. I chose to boost the tobacoo with INW Vanilla for Pipe which is a nice tobacco forward flavor that pushes the tobacco notes a bit more to the front. It won't show up in the mix for about a week, but when it does this mix starts to shine.
FA Caramel and INW Shisha Vanilla are here to boost those accent notes in the VFP and RY4D a bit more forward and make the mix sweeter with more depth of vanilla/caramel. These 2 bring help without bringing a ton of baggage or off notes and work with the tobaccos instead of clashing with them.
FLV Peanut Butter was chosen for the nut notes because it doesn't fade as much and we don't really need a perfect peanut butter here. We just want the nutty notes and pyrazines that it has to offer. I added FW Hazelnut for it's creaminess. It helps keep the PB from being dry and adds some creaminess to the vanilla/caramel notes and rounds out the nutty profile nicely.
I wanted a coffee accent because Holy Holy Grail RY4 has some coffee notes that I love. Coffee flavors are all lacking in my opinion and I felt that this choice was one that would make or break this mix. I chose SC Cappuccino because it adds a bit to the creaminess of the hazelnut and stays away from that burnt popcorn note if you keep it low. Its a relatively dark concentrate, but it's still kind to coils/cotton. Some may be sensitive to the burnt popcorn off note and I would recommend adjusting this ingredient to your liking if you want more/less.
I spent a lot of time balancing this recipe and checking it after a steep. This is, of course, for my palate. If you find that yours is different feel free to tinker with the percentages a bit. This won't need sweetener. The chosen concentrates do all the sweetening it needs. If you mix this up please leave a review or some feedback. All opinions are welcome!
This is good after about a 7 day steep. It's phenomenal after a month though
DFS is Euro Flavor Orient Tobacco Black ATF doesn’t seem to have any of the Euro Flavor stuff listed, but a whole lot of the DIYFS tobaccos have mysteriously similar names. Hmmm...
Anywho, this is a tobacco and cedar forward RY4 recipe. It ain’t the kind of RY4 that’s going to remind you of grandma’s cookies or anything like that.
EF Orient Tobacco Black: Strong cedar note. Like when you open an old cedar chest and breathe in that strong, musty cedar scent. It’s a taste I never realized I was missing in DIY until I got some of the Euro Flavor tobaccos.
Black Fire: Why not burn that cedar a little bit? Give it some bite.
Black for Pipe: You know I just gotsta throw it in there to up the tobacco and bring a less intense smokiness to it than Black Fire brings.
RY4 Double: Pairs well with a stronger tobacco to mellow things out a little, but doesn’t lose the bite. Using the JF here to get away with a shorter steep time, and also because it’s just a bit cleaner and works better with real tobaccos. Doesn’t seem as sweet to me.
Vanilla Ruyan Custard: Has a bit of bite of its own with some nice vanilla notes. Good body as well.
This one seems to be good to go fairly quickly. After about three days the Black Fire and Cedar mellow out a considerable amount, and it gets smoother from there.
