Vanilla caramel “tobacco” with notes of toasted almond. I’ve been chasing the cafe racer lucky 13 / lucky bastard RY4 profile. I can’t remember the original actually tasting anything like tobacco. It was just a pretty rich and satisfying RY4 profile. Working from sense memory here as I’ve not had the original for a few years.

This is a stripped back version; the original is said to have contained “13 flavours”. I’m not convinced about that. Although the versions I made with 13 flavours were delicious, I wanted to hit all the main notes with as few flavours as possible here. Like the original, this pairs beautifully with an IPA. My personal favourite pairing is the Gunpowder IPA by Innis & Gunn. But anything with Cascade or Citra hops will work well with this stuff.

Steep: works surprisingly well off the shake, but I’d suggest leaving it 4-5 days before digging in, as FA Ry4 does develop some interesting notes over time.

TL;DR if you bought FA RY4 and don’t know what to do with it, this is a good way to use it up.

Just a real simple treat. Straight up banana cream pie milkshake. I’m trying to create solid a base here that can be adapted into something more intriguing.

The mouthfeels on this off the shake are on point. It’s thick & voluminous, just like you’d want your milkshake.

Made for a pod system (the Innokin EQS pod system, to be exact). I wanted something woody and smoky with a heavy-handed pour of vanilla. The Ylang Ylang edges the vanillas in a spicy, floral direction, which meshes well with the Red Oak and sandalwood of Wood Spice. Black Fire adds the char. Vanilla Ruyan, also, helps bring this into the realm of a smoked vanilla essence. Butterscotch is there as deeper note underneath and to bring a level of richness to the table. Even with other devices charged and filled, I keep reaching back for this. It's a welcome change of pace. It's not really like anything else, it just is what it is . . . smoky, woody vanilla

A stunning creamy vanilla coffee kissed with a hint of caramel and fresh apple slices.

This is a redux of Morning Glory, which is still one of my favorite recipes to date: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/84671
The addition of the apple was an unintended ‘mistake’ when I accidentally added the apple combo to a pre-steeped bottle of Morning Glory instead of Creme Brulee and the result was surprisingly good! I decided to revisit the OG recipe and publish this version with one or two minor tweaks.

The hunt for a smooth, slightly sweet, caramel coffee has been, as any DIY’er will know, one of the most difficult feats to pull off. Enter Cafe Napoleon... this baby has none of the skunky coffee off notes and delivers, as per the DFS a ‘sweet and satisfying caramel infused coffee” - and they weren’t twisting the truth... This is not an in-your-face shot of espresso but rather a homage to coffee, highlighting its delicate flavours. The coffee note is moderately boosted with a touch of VT Arabica coffee, to provide a fuller coffee note, absent in the OG recipe.

The Cafe Napoleon lays the foundation here and is deservedly given a loving embrace by Holy Holy Grail which adds a delectable, but subtle, RY4 note which instantly propelles it from great to freakin fantastic!

Vanilla, in my opinion, is essential for a morning pick-me-up and gives this baby the legendary Holy Vanilla treatment...yuminess!

The biscuit adds a touch of texture without detracting from the protagonist and sits very well here at 1%.

The custard enrobes the ensemble of flavours and ads a velvety smoothness and mouth feel to thrust this baby into atmospheric proportions!

FA Fuji is the undisputed king of apples and here, it does all the heavy lifting on the apple front. Sweet, crispy and uber realistic, FA Fuji précis a Fuji apple uncannily. The INW apple brings a sweet apple juice type vibe to the party and boosts the Fuji’s sweetness to create a stunning apple combo.

A week will be enough for all the flavours to rise to the occasion but 2 will give you a morning glory, and then some...

Sweet caramel Cream custard and bold tobacco....I use 12mg nic salts for my pod system... mixing notes just to say I'm not a pro mixer but I have been around vaping and mixing close to 3 years plus. My actual interest in vaping started out in 2010 when I was buying juice from a company called Johnson's creak this reminds me of one of there flavors...

Trying different vanilla/custard bases, I stumbled into this mix which I find specially suggestive.
The Custard base is smooth and rich, and the tobacco notes are well defined and don't get muddled up.
(INW) Custard takes the reign for me (sorry FA Custard Premium!), (DFS) Holy Vanilla and (INW) Shisha Vanilla back it up.
- for a really intense vanilla (as commercial VCTs, pump (INW) Custard to 2.5%)
(FLV) Native Tobacco and (FLV) Kentucky Blend make a dry, leafy tobacco.
(FA) Black Fire puts some smoke in, without the ash and not being too prominent.
Doesn't need much steep, a few days and rip away!
(Black Sabbath's "Master of Reality" released July 21, 1971: as a tribute to one of the greatest albums of all time, for the name of the first song seemed too relevant to this mix. Sorry, no terpenes in the mix!)

I am on a quest to develop the ultimate vanilla and coconut tobacco profile, with a hint of toffee. Ii first feel I need to develop a vanilla coconut base before moving forward.

Mexican mango + cream paleta. These are my Second favorite, my favorite being Arroz (rice). FE mango is damn good, and very close to what the mango ice cream bars taste like. I added some flv mango for a bolder mango top note, and wf island mango for a bit of its green under-ripe flavor. I enjoy this recipe with .25 cap SS, but it is totally fine without sweetener.

I bought a bunch of grapefruits 6+ months to make Terrorhawk but never could find the Jasmine. So i started playing around with the grapefruit combo and came up with this. Not real sure how to describe it guess closed thing be a passionfruit/grapefruit vanilla cream. Add sweetener if you don’t find it sweet enough for your liking

Loosely based off a dessert my mother-inlaw makes for family get togethers it is a pineapple and coconut cream with a light dusting of graham cracker. Needs around a 5-7 day steep for it to fully come together.
