I used the "this could work" approach in adding INW Black for Pipe and reducing percents of the Southerner flavors except for Lovage Root, which was doubled. The Kentucky Bourbon still stands out clearly, and in combination with Lovage and the other flavors, giving this a bit of chewing tobacco flavor.
Not sure how long this takes to steep since I didn't try it until 7 weeks after mixing, so I'll go with the usual 30 days for INW tobaccos.
Touching base with an old friend recently, he expressed his long love affair with Castle Long. It was an old profile that I hadn't visited in a very long time. Being who I am I couldn't resist a take on the old versions we've all tried and try to do something a bit bigger and a bit bolder with it.
The Coconut: While I'm fairly positive the original used TPA Coconut Extra, I feel like it goes too quickly to hand lotion without a ridiculously long steep, and it's just less forgiving. TPA Coconut Candy is creamier, sweeter, and frankly just better all around IMO. At 5% it's bold, bright, and doesn't fade behind the wall of other stuff we got going on here.
The Almond: It's two parts here, with TPA Toasted Almond leading the way, with some CAP Cereal 27 to back up the nutty background while also giving a faint bit of grain. The grain texture also serves to boost up the Red Oak in our Bourbon Layer
The Bourbon: TPA Kentucky Bourbon is still the most buildable bourbon on the market to me. At 2.5% it's plenty bold enough to come all the way through, with a little FA Whisky to give a fair bit of peaty bite to the top end. TPA Red Oak helps it hit those woody notes
The finisher: TPA Vanilla Swirl gives us a mild body at 1.5% and a fairly bright vanilla. Along with a healthy splash of TPA Brown Sugar we get a rounded sweetness without too much extra heavy background.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating it! Cheers!
This mix is based on a commercial eliquid i had tried about a year ago,brought to me by a friend from U.S.A.Unfortunately,i can't purchase it due to regulations and restrictions about nic.At that time i had kept some notes that were left in a drawer,but that's all i had to work with.It needs steeping,not a snv by any means.After it has steeped,it reminds a dessert tobacco mix,although there is no tobacco flavor
A tobacco mix,in which the tobacco flavours were chosen for their special characteristics.Hondurian Ligero(SM) because it is smooth and slightly sweet.Cured tobacco (flv) for the woody nutty notes-Kentucky blend (flv) for the nutty-slightly leather-caramel notes and to enhance the sweet notes of hondurian ligero and cured tobacco.Aged bourbon cream (RF) and madagascar bourbon vanilla(TPA),combine well to give deep,darker creamy note that blends well with the kentucky bourbon and smoothens the final mix
The mix needs to steep for 5-7 days,for the creams and bourbon to come in place
