A rich, sticky & creamy caramel tobacco.

Further exploration of Holy Holy Grail and HS Caramel toffee led me to this scrumptious and richly rewarding creamy caramel RY4 delight. Simply put, pure bliss...

Not much has to be said for the highly acclaimed Holy Holy Grail. It is, by far, the quintessential RY4. Period. Light on the tobacco, heavy on the vanilla infused caramel goodness, this is the bedrock of this recipe. Use V2 at 8% for best results.

HS Caramel Toffee is my go-to caramel and further deepens the caramel layer by providing a rich and creamy true caramel flavor.

LB Vanilla Ice Cream is a superb VIC and further compliments the vanillas & introduces a wonderful, rich and smooth, creamy element. Initial adaptations features custard which was good, but this bad boy/girl is just soooo much better!

HS Italian cream is pure indulgence and simply adds luxurious, double cream, oral satisfaction.

Give this baby at least 7 days to stew and be prepared for oral bliss...

So I’ve been working on recipes utilising MVP Calipitter chow for a few weeks now. This is a great concentrate even using as a single flavour from (10% - 12%) It’s nutty,fluffy,sweet,vanilla goodness and can be used in many applications. My initial thought was “tobacco” but not your heavy,wet,ashy kind, I New this was crying out for a solid RY4 and that’s where DFS holy grail comes in.The original V1 Holy grail is sublime in every sense and I’m one of the lucky ones to still have a decent amount on hand,it truly was the best on the market and the likes of @fear have shown this in some fantastic ways. Unfortunately I haven’t tried this with the V2 yet but you can most definitely use it! I would maybe consider reducing the FA Vanilla classic down to 0.50%.If you don’t have either V1 or V2 there are 3 other options...”TPA RY4 double” - “JF RY4 double” or my personal favourite of the 3 “FA SoHo” Soho isn’t a RY4 but it definitely works in this application! I Also wanted to add some more darkness to the recipe in the form of sweetness and caramelisation and to me,FA butterscotch is king for this however you could sub this for FLV butterscotch or FLV caramel if you don’t have FA on hand! You can also sub FA butterscotch for FLV smoked butterscotch to give the recipe a new approach,I personally really enjoyed it with this @1%... Now back to Calipitter chow...it’s a great flavouring like I said but has 1 slight downfall,when pushed to higher realms it can become slightly throaty for myself so I wanted to implement a vanilla that I new could hold up to the RY4 and the inherent nuttiness provided from Chow so for me,my obvious choice was one of my personal favourite vanillas that being FA vanilla classic. This is a truly delicious vanilla with great depth and longevity and really does finish this recipe off in a subtle yet apparent and smoothing way. Really though,you can play around with your own version of this and use whatever you like as long as its going to hold up.My recommendations for other vanilla’s Would be “INW Shisha vanilla” - “DFS Holy Vanilla v1 or v2” all @ the same percentage (1%). I’m a sucker for all things sweet so I added 0.40% cap super sweet and I found this to be the real sweet spot for my taste buds however this is great without!! It’s entirely down to the mixers preference. So.....sit back like a true vape connoisseur and enjoy this delicious,simple recipe and please be so kind to leave me a review and rating so that other mixers can decide whether they would like to mix it up. Happy mixing guys and stay hazy. 😎💙 *** If you want this more “CHOW” forward simply switch the percentages with “HOLY GRAIL”, IMHO both ways are very satisfying and full of flavour I personally like the slight tobacco Notes breaching through @4% as stated.***

After vaping Addy Tuney's pumpkin custard for frames janklin, I thought it would be a great base for an RY4. This strayed far from that inspiration, and turned into a spice cookie.

I like using FLV Yam for a pumpkin, and Cap Gingerbread added the spice that I wanted. CAP Sugar Cookie added sweetness and backed up the bakery note.

Next step was adding the tobacco and cream. Holy Holy Grail RY4 by DIYFS was my first choice for this recipe, as it isn't a strong tobacco, but does a great job adding a creamy caramel with some spice, but it did not give the richness I desired. After trying several cheesecakes, as I did not want to add another cream, I settled on INW Yes, We Cheesecake.
This is not a real sweet recipe, and you might want to add a little sweetener if you have a sweet tooth.

I tested this in both an RDA and in the Zenith MTL tank with 0.8 coil, and I prefer this as a MTL vape.

A delicious smokey blend of caramel, vanilla and tobacco.

I set out to explore different levels and uses of my Holy Holy Grail, widely revered as THE king of caramel, vanilla and tobacco triads.
Admittedly feint in the tobacco department, this recipe attempts to add some simple complexity to our main protagonist whilst celebrating its inherent sublimeness...

SM Latakia fire cured is a superb ‘dark’ tobacco and is much more refined than other players in this tobacco category like Black Fire and the likes. It can be described as an ashy burning campfire log - intense and pure... Here it adds a delicious & refined sweet, smokey & ashy element and lifts the RY4 base to unexplored heights

Oakwood adds a slight sweet woody tone to bolster the feint tobacco in the Holy Holy Grail and adds a bit of complexity and intrigue.

Use Holy Holy Grail V2 at 8%.
For a touch of additional sweetness, add 1% HS Caramel Toffee...

Give this 7 days to settle, 10 days best.

Another one of Rye's favorite profiles. Not a clone of Glas's Butterscotch RY4, just my take on the profile.

Sweeten to taste.

I’ve been working on this tobacco recipe for a decent amount of time and finally feel it’s where I want it. This is good off the shake however giving it 3 days really works wonders for the nuances in this recipe. I don’t really do tobacco in general however I’m pretty dam proud of this one. Would love to hear some thoughts from some true tobacco heads! Looking forward to seeing how this one goes down with you all. 😃 happy mixing 💙

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...

The theme for mixer's club was Duets. I decided to take my love for Cardinal and try to see if I could get more tobacco out of it. My problem with Cardinal was always that it was just never enough tobacco flavor. So I decided to try it with Brigade 2506 by @ChemicalBurnVictim as like a peanut butter and jelly tobacco blend.

The results were strange. I first just lifted the holy holy grail ry4 and mixed it with BFP and TA CC. That wasn't working so I added back in everything on both recipes until I had a straight mash up of the two. For one tester, I just threw in some Am4a on a whim at 1%. for some reason that mix worked better than the others. The two recipes needed a bridge to pull them together and I'm guessing that the slightly creamy Am4a was able to bridge that gap between the caramelly HHG and the darker brigade flavorings.

Based on feedback from @ID10-T, I experimented with the levels of Am4a to get it right. I sent him some samples to try with Am4a at 0/0.3/0.5/0.7/0.9% His feedback being that the Am4a stood out too prominently at 1.0 and I was inclined to agree. Testing at various levels we both agreed that 0.5/0.7 were indistinguishable.

So, here it is at the 11th hour as Holy Holy Grail Ry4 v1 fades into diy history... Sacrilege (Amped brigade 2506)

Additional notes:
- I do like the 0.9 version as well. It leans more to that creamy bacco side than a mash-up and you can try that out too if you like more bacco and dont mind the distraction.
- just want to take a moment to thank the Mixer's club for encouragement and feedback and to ID10-T for helping me to get the levels perfect and trying out some samples to nail it down.

Profile- Pineapple White Chocolate RY4

A Final Farewell To Holy Holy Grail RY4 v1.

Like most times I'm coming up with a recipe I was in the mood for something weird and very different. I haven't messed with DFS HHG all that much and wanted to do so. I also haven't used VT Love (White Chocolate) much either. Naturally...lets put them together. I was going through my fruits and trying to figure out what would go well with a RY4 and White Chocolate. For some reason Pineapple stood out to me big time....so away we go!

There isn't a whole lot of complexity to this recipe and I was happy with the choice of flavors so at this point it was just a matter of nailing down percentages.

INW Pineapple/Cap Golden Pineapple- This is my favorite Pineapple combo. Cap Golden is the nice sweet slightly candied pineapple which blends really nicely with the more prickly realistic INW Pineapple. INW is a weak bitch of a flavor but it does really well at 5%.

DFS HHG- There ain't much to say here. It's delicious. Some Vanilla, some Caramel, tiny bit of bacco. Can't go wrong!

VT Love (White Chocolate)- I've fallen in love with this flavor. Nice and rich, thick almost creamy white chocolate. I prefer this to LBs White Chocolate because it isn't even close to as coconut heavy as LBs version. I love coconut, but it just doesn't belong here.

V1- I started with 7% DFS HHG, 3% Cap Golden Pineapple, 5% INW Pineapple and 2.5% VT Love. The HHG wasn't as pronounced as I was hoping for and the White Chocolate was a tad buried. The Pineapple blend was perfect just where it was.

V2- Because both HHG and the White Chocolate were not as prominent as I hoped for I bumped the HHG to 8% and the WC to 3%. This was a step in the right direction. I liked where the WC was at but the the HHG was overpowering the Pineapple blend.

V3- I decided to split the difference for the HHG and go with 7.5% enough to keep it out front but not enough to drowned out the pineapple. 3% Cap Golden Pineapple, 5% INW Pineapple, 3% VT WC and I'm in Heaven. I've mixed 2 or 3 30mls of this version within the last couple weeks and cannot get enough of it.

So the twist. Sometime in the middle of developing this recipe, DIY Flavor Shack for whatever reason...announced HHG will be getting a V2 with no more V1. This blows. I've started testing HHG V2 and so far I'm finding it lacks the body that V1 has. I'm not terribly sure how it will affect this recipe. However, I do plan on mixing up a batch with V2 to see what tweaks will need to be made to get it as close to this delightful version. So, on that note. Mix this shit up because I can confidently say its one of the best ways to use up the rest of your V1 HHG ;).

This is just the updated version of my original Holy Pistachio using some recommendations from ID10-t . Wanted to post a separate version so people can mix both versions easier.
