I used to be addicted to this stuff before I started DIY. Took me a while to track down the cigar / tobacco element they use in the original. Finally got my hands on SC Cohiba and had a revelatory moment. Still not 100% sure if it's as simple as this, but if they're using anything else, I'd bet my house it's another SC tobacco. (They are not, let me repeat, they ARE NOT using any FA or Inawera or TFA tobaccos with variations of the word Cuban in their names. I found this out the hard way by testing out these abominations. Take my word for it and save your money.)

That said, this really hits all the main notes in the original. It's a simple but satisfying profile that keeps me interested for weeks on end.

If you want to replicate the Silver version, adding 0.25-0.35% FA Honey to this mix will get you very close. (I think they're using SC Black Mile or another SC tobacco alongside Cohiba for added spice in the Silver, but I'm not 100% sure on that, which is why I've not yet released my official remix.)

This works off the shake, but obviously benefits from a 7-14 day steep, and gets better from there, as CAP VC matures.

Adapted directly from this wonderful recipe by orangetree.
I love the original, but cannot stomach FW Butter Pecan, for some reason unbeknownst to me. So I made a few changes, and paired things back a little.

Profile: A delicious dessert from Austria. Vanilla bean ice cream dumpling with apricot filling, rolled in grated, roasted and slightly caramelised hazelnuts.

Inspired by Lilt. I came up with this last autumn, when I wanted summer back in my life, but it’s taken a fair few iterations to get it balanced.

The Aurora is here to add a little carbonated zing to the profile. You could alternatively sub in FW Pink Champagne around 1% for a similar effect, but I like the brightness that Aurora brings here.

Everything else should be self-explanatory. The pineapples offer the main base, playing off the tart grapefruit from Inawera.

It’s good off the shake, but I recommend giving it 4 days for everything to settle together.

Profile is fresh buttery pancakes with maple syrup, whipped cream & fresh strawberries.

Cake batter, Vanilla Cupcake & Waffle (Belgian) make up our pancake base here. Waffle brings our maple syrup and Vanilla cupcake adds some light fluffiness to the base.

Golden Butter butters things up and Whipped Cream emulsifies and adds some extra airiness to the vape, creating some nice breathing space for Sweet Strawberry to punch through.

I prefer this with a little extra sweetener, but do whatever works for you.

Pancakes with lemon juice and sugar. Just like I used to have them when I was a kid.

NCM's cake batter base from Batter Up works wonders for the pancakes here. INW Biscuit is here to add a little crispness to the edges, and INW Waffle is used very sparingly (0.1% of a 10% dilution) to add just a subtle hint of fried dough.

Dark tobacco with licorice

Little more needs to be said. I came up with this a few years ago, but have since modified it to fit more recent tastes.

This is amazing after a 30 day steep. It's good straight away, but really improves with time.

I used to smoke Gauloises tobacco rolled in licorice papers, and since I started vaping, I've been wanting to replicate this for the days I'm really craving my old habit. This is the closest I've come.

Delicious stuff. Got a nasty flu right now, and this stuff is seeing me through. Have had Milk & Honey in my stash, almost unused, for a while now, and this is easily the best use for it I've found so far. Silky smooth, rich and delicious. Thanks!

Man, this is a beautifully balanced recipe! Amazing use of Honey Peach as a backnote. (It's never worked up-front for me.) Try as I might, I couldn't stop vaping this after I made the first batch, so it didn't even make it to day 3. Immediately made some more to test how it turns out after a 3 day steep. Magic work.

Unbelievably delicious. Yet so simple. First recipe in my seven months of mixing that I've found I can vape all day and all night, without ever getting tired of it. Amazing work from Coop34. Thanks for sharing, ID10-T!

Can't get enough of this. Waited a long time to get hold of INW Marzipan, then a long time again to let this steep a good few weeks. The results are in and it's exceptional. Beautifully layered profile with different notes popping out each vape. Solid mixing that deserves more praise. Thanks for sharing, Vurve!

Can't get enough of this stuff. I try to keep 60mls on hand at all times. First real ADV I've found in 12 months of mixing. As a shake and vape, the INW Marzipan provides nice, creamy, fluffy notes straight-away. As time passes, the body of the profile fills out, becoming even more fluffy and sweet, without at any point becoming cloying or overpowering. It's mentioned in another review that this doesn't have much flavour. I kinda agree, but don't view this as a negative at all. It's a lovely, subtle & nuanced recipe. The subtlety is what makes this stuff work as an ADV I can keep coming back to. It just never becomes fatiguing. Awesome work right here.

I remember trying this when I first started mixing. At the time, I thought it was interesting, but now I've come to realise it's just a mish mash of various flavours, none of which get close to replicating the real thing. The result is just a heavily muted and somewhat boring recipe, with nothing worth remembering. I'm not really sure this deserves to be replicated here, as it's nowhere near the standards set by the majority of recipes on this site.

Perfectly balanced blending right here. I don't know how you managed to make this work. Everything I try with these two pineapples ends up tasting weird. This is just smooth and delightful, and never gets old. Great work!

I love this. Been trying to create a marshmallow vape for months on end, to no avail. This completely hits the spot for me. The Graham Cracker is a nice touch. Makes the whole thing way more interesting, without getting in the way of the primary fluffy marshmallow notes. Seriously impressive work. Thanks for sharing!
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: about 2 years ago
Perfect as a shake n vape. Can only imagine it getting better after a short steep. Great mixing! Can see myself making a lot of this in the future. Pairs nicely with a rooibos tea or black coffee. Thanks for sharing!

This is great. Easily the best base I've come across from which to work an accurate clone / remix of French Dude. Thanks for sharing!

Another winner. This is super-refreshing, and another beautifully balanced mix. My only slight issue was a little harshness from INW Grapefruit, but this steeps out if you leave it a few more days. (10 day steep seemed to work well for me.) Thanks for sharing!
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: about 2 years ago
We've got a winner right here. Can't say enough good things about this. I love the idea behind it, and I think you emulated the characteristics of amethyst with ease. It's a very smooth, dark purple profile. Grape and Plum bring those purple notes beautifully, with Dragonfruit bridging them together, and Oba Oba, Cream Whipped and Marshmallow encircling it all in a soft pillow of peace. It's like vaping grape juice, tinged with droplets of tropical rainwater, whilst sitting on a purple cushion, and staring out into a purple sea. Heavenly work!

Scratch my last review. I came back to this after a three week steep, and it's ridiculously good. I mentioned before that I only get powdered sugar from FA Zeppola at 4% and above, as opposed to any donut. But this is only true for the first few weeks. After 2-3 weeks, everything just comes together like magic. Tastes exactly like a sweet powdered donut. This deserves serious praise.

Well I've never had a boba tea, and I've never vaped Dewwy Boba, so I've not got much to go on in terms of comparison here. But what I can say is that this is REALLY good stuff. I love the balance of flavours. I love the texture. I love how refreshing and smooth this stuff is. It's a simple recipe that I keep returning to. It deserves a bit more love on here.
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: about 2 months ago
Yup. One of my new favourites. Took a while to adapt to it. Never had a sizzurp. Had to google it to establish what the hell it was supposed to be. First time I mixed it, i wasn't sure what was going on, but now I get it. Mixed the most recent batch with FLV Pink Guava @1% and it's magic stuff. Pairs well with Southern Comfort. Thanks for sharing! 🌴

Wasn't sure about this initially. I tried it two days after mixing, and it was a little odd. Kinda like a fluffy melon without any top notes. Six days in and it's completely transformed into a rounded, mellow, complex vape. Not sure if the INW Melon I got recently is the new formulation, but whatever it is, it definitely works here. Think this might be a new favourite. Thanks for sharing! 🏝

10 stars out of 5. This is insanely good. My tester disappeared in a few minutes, which is unusual, as I usually take some time getting to know what I'm vaping before just blowing through it. ID10-T is right. Anton and LA Watermelon are the perfect couple. The balancing act between these two is masterfully done here. I found that if I mix this 80/20 VG/PG, there's no throat hit whatsoever, even as a SNV, yet the flavour holds up without any problems.

Straight off the mix & shake, this is the best portrayal of this profile I've ever come across. I'll return to update after a 7 day steep, if it lasts that long. Great work! 👍
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: over 1 year ago
Only let this steep for two days, and it's already amazing. Surprised it hasn't had more love. It's a solid & very finely balanced mix. I'll try to pop back with more notes when / if I get to the 5 day mark. Or (more likely) when I come back to my second bottle in a little while. Thanks for sharing!
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: over 1 year ago
This is a simple, but solid recipe. All elements come through and it's nicely balanced. Good work! And thanks for sharing! 🖖

I know you said "no substitutions" - I almost always follow this rule, but I made an exception this time; I mixed exactly as is, with one change; subbed in RF SC Strawberry in place of TPA Strawberry at the same percentage, as I've never liked the latter (the butyric off notes never seem to fade completely out, even after a month + steep), and I've found the former to be a more than valid replacement to achieve a similar profile without off notes. With that out of the way; only an overnight steep so far, but this is already damn fine. I'm loving the balance of berries in this. It already has a nice grainy texture, without pushing into weird territory, and a good complementary smoothness from the cream milky / meringue combo, even at this early stage. I can only see this getting better as time goes by. Goes very well with my morning espresso. I'll try to remind myself to report back in 7 days and update this with further comments / suggestions. It's already a five star mix for me, as far as hitting the cereal profile. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome work. It works as a SNV, but a two week steep really hammers it home. Tastes scary accurate to the picture. I get a perfectly sweet banana nut bread, drowned in a caramel-vanilla ice cream sauce. The caramel adds a dark sweetness that marries beautifully with the BNB. In future mixes, I might consider scaling back the NYCC and VBIC just a touch, as there's some very slight off notes that I catch every few pulls. Regardless, this is an awesome recipe. Wunderbar!

holy macaroni this is jesus level mixing. could happily vape this eternally.
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: 7 months ago
outrageously good. This is a winning take on an unusual profile. For some inexplicable reason, I’ve never been able to stomach FW Butter Pecan, but I still enjoyed this. My personal approach with my second mix was to remove Butter Pecan and replace it with FA Hazelnut at 0.5%. Delicious either way. Fine work.
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: 6 months ago
deserves some kinda prize. Crazy accurate to the profile. Gooey, flakey, nutty and beautifully layered.
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: 6 months ago
This shit is delicious. Best use of FA White Peach I’ve found.
User: horizonism Score: 5 Entered: 6 months ago
I know this isn’t finished, but I actually like it as a base to play around with. I’m lucky - I don’t get any play dough taste from CAP Glazed. My favourite revision of this involved 2% CAP Funnel Cake, knocking down Glazed by the same amount, and some extra sweetener. Works straight off the mix for me. Nice work, Wayne.

Who is this @ancient7 dweeb who rates recipes 3 stars without a comment? This is a 5 star recipe without any doubt, and I'd hate to see new mixers pass over this due to its arbitrary four star rating as a result of a single troll rating without any comment. This recipe has seen me through many good & bad times. Its existence has helped turn what could have been tough times into pleasurable experiences. I use it much like I would a detox smoothie; it's always good to have some on hand. The banana combo is straight up perfect. The pineapple is subtle, but perfectly blended & balanced to pair up with the bananas. Cactus works so well to moisten things up and add a little intrigue to each pull, and the orange cream is a master touch, pairing up with the LA Banana Cream to add that luxurious mouth feel of a perfect smoothie. I cannot, for the life of me, understand why anyone in their right mind would not enjoy this recipe. This is master level mixing.
