The recipe should seem obvious for what does what. I know ya'll don't like to read, so keeping this short and simple.
Peanut Butter / Sun Seed - Creates the outside nut cluster. The addition of Sun Seed boosts the fuck out of the nuts and blends perfectly with Peanut Butter for a raw, almost soft like peanut.
Butterscotch / Caramel - That layer protects the nuts from the white stuff while adding a creamy sweetness to the mix.
Vanilla / Marshmallow / Meringue - Needed to fill that soft, semi-flakey center of the roll. It sits in your mouth with a soft, almost chewy texture.
Great of a shake abit Sun Seed overtakes this recipe at first, better after about a day or two.
Could have turned this into a fanfict, but fuck that.
Just vape my nuts.
Well here we are again. I swore I would never work on this damn recipe again but I had a breakthrough after making a totally unrelated juice. I was using Vanilla Bean Gelato and smelled that missing element of Duchess I had been looking for. Who knew? I have made over 45 batches of clones to get here and took a very long break but finally feel confident to post this. Try it out and let me know what you think. I think you will agree that this is the closest clone we have ever got to the original. Have any comments, suggestions or think something is off? Leave comments down below. Thanks and enjoy.
FW Butterscotch Natural- I tried the natural version and non- natural but cant make up my mind which is best. With that said, other brands were not the sweet buttery flavor I was looking for . It is potent stuff so no more than 2% is needed. It becomes more buttery as it steeps and it settles after a week or so.
FW Tres Leche- This is the back end of the cream and gives it just a slight sour flavor like the original. I tried milk or other similar flavors but they just don't work and I believe there is reason it is in the description.
FW Graham Cracker- A big thank you goes out to Wayne Walker for this one. Yellow cake never hit the mark right and this cannot be subbed for any from Capellas or TPA. They are just to different. It is the needed bakery aspect of the cake and seems to work in this setting. The more I play with this, the more I think 1% is too high. after a steep it really comes to the front and 0>5% is more likely to be on point.
FW Hazelnut- I tried them all and this fits the best. There is most definitely hazelnut in the original and 1.5% after a steep seems to fit well. Again, subbing it for another just wont be the same.
TPA Vanilla Bean Gelato- This is the star of the show. I cant understate how much you cant sub this out. The whole backbone of the recipe falls on it and I have tried different % but after a steep this fell right into place. Its very sweet and in my opinion removes any need for a sweetener in this recipe. The eggyness mixed with the butterscotch is perfect and seems to have a slight coconut essence about it that I can taste in the original. This was the Holy grail in the recipe that I could never put my finger on.
Cap Vanilla Custard- I think we all knew this was in there but add too much and it takes away from the Gelato. 2% seems to keep it from taking over but still has a strong presence. As always it takes a little while for it to come to the party. After a week you can expect it to play.
FA Vape Wizard- This is to thicken and funny enough it brings the color to the original. Its not a deal breaker but I feel it adds to the experience. It is roughly 1 drop per 10ml of juice.
FW French Vanilla- I have tried every Vanilla out there except for holy Vanilla as I cannot seem to get it in Canada. Its softer than the others and compliments the creams in the recipe but wont overtake the recipe. I have had success with CAP French Vanilla but found less after taste with the FW version.
TPA Marshmallow- This adds volume and fluffiness to the recipe and I'm certain its in the reserve version of duchess but not in the original.
CAP Super Sweet- if you must add sweetener I would use this but no more than 0.25%. The original isn't very sweet compared to other commercial juices. I personally leave it out but go nuts.
Well there you have it. Try it and let me know what you guys think. I always promised I would re-post my Duchess after I felt I got it right...I just didn't think it was gonna be a year later. Mix it at 70VG/30PG to get the original consistency and give it a week to steep. With that said, taste it right away and let me know your thoughts. I'm dying to hear feedback. Even after a shake and vape you will see it is on track but falls into place after the steep. I hope this helps someone who went through the same hell I did.
Every time remix month comes about, I like to go after that elusive eliquid that had previously escaped me. After numerous attempts from the community to get a Duchess remix, I finally feel like this is worth releasing to the public. This is a few years in the making and I like to give credit to Method aka Mr. Hardwick for laying the foundation and getting us to this point.
In Duchess Reserve the thing that always had me baffled was the cookie aspect, I lowered the butter pecan to .25%, and it’s critical to not overpour because it can take over fast! And added in some graham cracker to round out the cookie notes.
Also the cakey aspect, I feel like the tres leches, along with the creams covers that pretty well. I went back and forth with TFA vanilla custard, FW, and Cap VC, to me the Cap version was closer to the original in every aspect. Looking back to the time this eliquid came out, I could easily see them exclusively using FW and just getting the Cap Vanilla Custard from a vendor and buying that one concentrate in bulk. At that time, Cap VC was king and still is to this day. Especially after a good steep.
With that being said I do need to move on from this chase, and I’m happy to do so now since I really do think we’re damn close. Here I present my final version of the Duchess Reserve for #remixmonth.
After buying some of this juice the other day I just had to come back and remake this masterpiece. I know it’s not exactly Duchess with the minor changes I made with adding probably my all time favorite flavoring, Shisha Vanilla, removing cake batter, and throwing in some RY4, this recipe is quickly becoming a staple in my rotation.
When faced with the assault of cold months ahead I really wanted a warm and decadent tobacco to shepherd me through the winter winds.
TFA RY4 Double - I mean when you hear "decadent" you know you have to go with RY4 Double, a nice easy bakery-esque flavor with a hint of tobacco. Really one of the best go-to flavors for when you want a mild, non-offensive tobacco.
FW Butterscotch Ripple/ FW Butterscotch (Natural) - Ripple is the go-to Butterscotch for just about every application you need. Its wonderful, rich, and creamy. Butterscotch (Natural) is used to boost the main butterscotch flavor of Ripple. Ripple is fantastic but sometimes can be lost in a complex/dense mix and either needs to be mixed dangerously high or it needs to be reinforced with other flavorings.
FW Butter Pecan - while RY4 Double is a great tobacco flavoring, it wasn't nutty enough for me. Added Butter Pecan to fill out that nutty tobacco note. I didn't want to go too high with this because I've found this flavor will REALLY take over a mix if you go slightly too high.
TPA Brown Sugar/FLV Milk & Honey/ FA Bourbon (Vanilla) - These flavorings are blended together to bring a darker sweetness to the mix. The butterscotch notes are reinforced by the Brown Sugar and Bourbon (Vanilla). The latter also brings a warmth to the mix. FLV Milk & Honey adds a dark sweetness while accenting the pecan.
Mix it up and throw it in a dark cabinet and let it sit there. I'd leave it for a few weeks BUT if you are impatient (like me) it can be good to go in a week.
Personally I mix this at 60/40 and I would probably not go much higher than 70/30.
This one has an odd genesis. Watched this back in 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7noLAUMuosg. The names unicorn puke and dragon jizz sent me on a research bender. Nope. No dragon jizz to be found anywhere, other than in google image search.
Damn furries. ;P
Oddly enough, found an image belonging to a commercially available juice called Unicorn Jizz. http://stores.goodasgoldpremium.com/unicorn-jizz-ejuice/.
Couldn't bring myself to try it. Too tropical in my head for unicorns.
So, after a long discussion with friends of mine who are furries, started joking about making some. This is not the Dragon Jizz (that's still a WIP). But, since my 'sona is a cross between a kitsune, and a unicorn, and has a candy corn horn? Started noodling out what the hell that'd taste like. So here we are:
Orange, creamy as hell, and a hint of candy corn.
Now I just gotta find a dragon. It's for science >.>
SO.... this is my first published recipe after almost 2 years of perfecting my process.
I, however, have only been able to come up with one recipe that i think should be published for the community, as I do lots of single/few flavor recipes most of the time... The result has been this:
Profile I have been after:
I am shocked and amazed how much the 'bacco recipes have hit my tastebuds on the "sweet spot" so to speak. I was always a menthol smoker (for almost 20 years) and when i started vaping, I thought I would need somewhat of the same profile... BOY, was I wrong! With all the bakeries, sweets, coffee-type recipes out there, I was in VARIETY HEAVEN. And I stayed in my comfort zone for a very long time.... Then came ENYAWREKLAW's Pistachio RY4 U... My life has never been the same since then...
So, for this recipe, I wanted to take some elements of PRY4U (mainly the RY4 Dbl) and expand upon it. What I wanted as a finished product was a 'bacco vape, but sweet to the taste buds and a heck of a lot more of a mouthfeel... Even more naturally sweet than any RY4 on the market. I think I have succeeded....
LB Butterscotch Graham Tobacco/ TPA RY4 Double:
This is a real experiment... who knew these 2 tobaccos could play nice together? Well, they do... As a matter of fact, they are great playmates! Definitely more tobacco tasting together though, so watch out if that ain't your thang...
LB Vanilla Ice Cream/ DIYFS Holy Vanilla:
With this combo, I didn't want it to end up tasting like Ben and Jerry's Wacky Tobaccy Ice Cream, rather, I wanted fluffiness with vanilla overtones and this amazing concentrate from Liquid Barn does that so well when you introduce the holiest of vanilla flavorings. What a COMBO!
FW Butterscotch Natural:
This was used to create a bit more punch with the butterscotch flavoring coming from the LB 'bacco... Just enough to taste good, and not cloying in any way.
CAP Mallow... This is here plainly to create more fluff/mouthfeel.... I like CAP for this reason most of the time.
Great after 3 days ( I know, right?....A tobacco? I swear! Try it!) but really takes shape 7-10 days... Do not recommend as a SNV... needs a little time.
Thanks! And let me know what ya'll think!
Well over 40 different batches trying to clone Kings Crest Duchess and I never got it. But what I did get was this recipe...formerly Duchess version 21. It still isn't Kings Crest Duchess but in some ways it's better. It is a very buttery butterscotch and I have vaped liters over the past 8 months. I know percentages are high and if that bothers you then don't mix it...or dilute it if you like. Its very rich and probably not very good for you but well worth it as a treat. Enjoy and leave feedback if you like. Best after 2 weeks for it to settle properly.
If a thin mint Girl Scout cookie mixed itself up with an oatmeal cookie, this would be it IMO. My creation is not meant to be a replication of either of the aforementioned. Rather, it's just a darn good cookie! Inspiration is much better than replication sometimes ;)
Sugar Cookie is what it is. The base of most cookies out there. To bring on oatmeal cookie qualities, ya gotta do something to it lol.
Biscuit- Buttery, and cookie like in it's own profile, it adds to the Sugar Cookie base.
CGC- Adds more buttery notes and a vanilla note to the cookie profiled base.
Brown Sugar- Darkens the cookie profile and adds a depth from the classic vanilla most basic cookies have.
Butterscotch- Butterscotch Natural when mixed at roughly a 5:1 ratio with Butterscotch Ripple has it's place in several other mixes I make, and allows you to make other adds to your mix to work in the appropriate level of sweetness depending on the recipe. It's a perfect combination that allows you to play around with additional sweetener or other flavorings to match what you are going for. Butterscotch is a staple in many oatmeal cookie profiles and recipes.
Creme De Menthe Just a touch here folks, we're not making a mint cookie lol.
Sweet Cream- Used to add to the sweetness of the butterscotch. We could have accomplished this by upping butterscotch ripple a bit more, but that would have changed the butterscotch flavor I was going for. Flavor and sweetness are not the same thing.
Try it shake and vape so you can see what the creme de menthe tastes like right out of the gate. BUT, let it sit for a few hours and come back to it. The next day? The magic has already happened and the effect the creme de menthe gives to this recipe is in full swing.
This creation is meant to be a light cookie recipe at 80% vg, and was made for a dripper. Try it as such. I hope you enjoy it!
