Graham Central Station:
A sweet and creamy graham cracker infused desert tobacco blend paired with subtle notes of butterscotch and hazelnut. Tasty with morning coffee. This is one of my ADV's and it's designed to be more "commercial" with a bold amount of flavor, sort of a similar experience as an RY4. The Red Burley fades a bit after a week or so becoming more of a "flavoring" than a "tobacco flavor" but falls inline with the dessert like profile and offers just enough of a tobacco note to satiate my love for savory vapes. The Bavarian cream and butterscotch provide a deep, sweet and creamy base which is by design (Maybe too creamy for some.) The hazelnut is not so discernible as it is used to add a bit more creamy and a bit more savory. I use this in my Berserker Mini MTL at anywhere from .4-.8ohms, twisted kanthal or Clapton wire with Cotton Bacon Prime wick and I would assume it would be great in a tank as well. May be too robust for dripping depending on how full flavor you like to vape, but tastes pretty good (to me) out of a Hadaly. This can be a SNV though it benefits greatly from a crockpot steep on warm for a few hours and is best IME 3 days after that, it really helps the Bavarian Cream/Butterscotch bloom underneath everything. Enjoy!
An RY4 mix I've been working with folded into Alfred Pudding's Cheesecake layer. I keep coming back to this, and it doesn't get old. Tasty as hell off the shake and only gets better given time. For me, this reaches ADV status . . . from pairing it with coffee in the morning, to accompanying a sip of whiskey at night, and everything in between.
This is a sweet, robust RY4 tobacco slathered in vanilla-laced caramel backed up by the velvet-smooth cream of cheesecake . . . I'm in my happy place.
Listening to this amazing Deftones Mix throughout concept, creation, and testing. The colors/visuals at about the 4min 15sec mark is what sparked the idea.
This is part 1 of a 3 part recipe dump regarding the main flavor Cap Golden Pineapple. I will post the other two over the next few days and link them all together as I go.

Ah shit this recipe has more than three flavors, it's probably trash.
PART 3: Stupid Simple Pineapple Ice Cream https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/140190#stupid_simple_pineapple_ice_cream_pineapple_dump_3_3_by_rockyharlow
We stray away from our usual cheesecake base here, instead creating one from the ground up. It suffices for plug and play with many other fruits as well, and I often throw in FW Butter Pecan at 6% in place of the Pineapple to make a pecan pie cheesecake hybrid abomination.
Our cheesecake tone is set with a ubiquitous 4% CAP New York Cheesecake. I say ubiquitous as most of my cheesecake needs are generally met with this 4% of NYC. At this level we get a saturated, velvety layer of thick cheesecake filling. To keep this recipe simple, we don't really need anything else to support this layer.
We develop our graham cracker crust simply, yet effectively with 3% FW Graham Cracker. This stuff is so delicious and easily one of my most reached for bottles when mixing a dessert. In my humble opinion it shits on TPA Graham Cracker Clear in a way that I can't even begin to express with words.
It can't be a pineapple cheesecake without the pineapple aspect, so we chop up some fresh chunks of CAP Golden Pineapple. Adding 5% is sufficient to satisfy the chunked pineapple vibe without getting too overpowering. We want it strong but not coil nuking levels of citrus. If you do notice the pineapple to be a bit overpowering, try knocking it down to 3.5%, maybe 4%, but no lower or I noticed that it really tends to get lost despite being a fairly potent flavor.
The final addition to the mix is FA Meringue at 2%. I am absolutely biased in saying so, but 2% FA Meringue is a welcome addition to nearly any bakery or dessert for me. Here it serves to connect the graham cracker crust to the layer of cheesecake. Without it, the layers tend to stack instead of blend like we want.
Personally, I would skip the sweetener here, as nearly every one of these flavors serve to sweeten on their own accord. The addition of sweetener only serves to muddle, or gray out, the whole recipe.
As cheesecakes tend to go, give this one a nice shake and forget it for an absolute minimum of three business days. The mix would prefer to have you wait a full week to bust into it's deliciousness, but it will forgive you if you cave a little earlier than anticipated.
So, I didn't have everything for MaxSavage's Golden Boy, but it sounded delicious. Therefore, I mixed his idea with my Long Gone Lonesome Blues (minus the blueberries and lemon), adding what I had that was "all things golden." Thus, Stay Gold, Ponyboy was born . . . I thought I would share. I've been vaping it all week on the ride to and from work and felt like it was ready to share . . . not to mention, after a long week, I've had a few and have been listening to Dinosuar Jr's You're Living All Over Me and Sonic Youth's Sister on repeat . . . 1987 was a truly a golden year for music. I'm feeling my oats.
This is a dessert tobacco . . . a creamy, golden dessert tobacco.
Graham Crackers and Custard are a match made in heaven. There are countless versions of this dynamic duo, but this one is mine. I'm very happy with how this turned out, and after many, MANY versions, this is the one I keep coming back to. We've got rich vanilla custard with cinnamon and subtle notes of caramelized brown sugar and honey. Then come in the crunchy cookie graham crackers. Thick and dense, these two partners make one hell of a team. The profile is simple for the most part, but I had a blast working in different concentrates to really fill this vape out into something I'm quite proud of. Most of these flavors you will find carry a dark sweetness that I am very fond of, and I think it helps fit the theme nicely.
I really like bending bakeries. I could never seem to get graham cracker right, though. I tried so many graham cracker combinations and they all fell short. I could never get that crunch that I wanted. I needed that texture. So I decided to invite FA Cookie to the party. This is a beast of a concentrate when you want that AP heavy crunch. It's kind of dry, but we are dropping those Graham Crackers into custard, right?
FA Cookie is a crunchy bakery 'cookie’ base that works very well to build our graham cracker off of. It's definitely AP heavy, and works well as a jump-off point because of its graininess and neutrality. It's dark, and mildly sweet, kind of like my Irish mother.
That's our foundation, folks. Let's start building that bad Larry up. I used two graham crackers in conjunction to the FA Cookie, both serving very different purposes. CAP Graham Cracker brings the cinnamon, and FW Graham Cracker brings some more crunch, with a touch honey.
CAP Graham Cracker has a decently strong bakery cinnamon sweetness, some people find it off-putting, but I personally love it once it settles down a bit. You are going to get some butter, and a slight graininess from this concentrate which is helpful to build on that cookie base. This thang tastes pretty authentic to me, almost like they were homemade and baked. These graham crackers came out of the oven, not out of a box. This concentrate needs help in the crunch department, and that's why we are also using FA Cookie and FW Graham Cracker.
FW Graham Cracker is hands down my favorite GC. If I had to only pick one, this is it. You ever had Honey Maid Graham Crackers? You know, the ones that come in sheets and you have to break apart? These are them. Definitely sweet, definitely cookie-like, and it packs that punchy crunchy. It also brings some honey, which is awesome in combination with CAP's offering. These 3 bakeries working together create our graham cracker cookie. It's tasty, and in my opinion a very clear representation of a solid graham cracker to crumble up into our custard.
Custard is so bomb. They are easily my favorite profile and I absolutely love tinkering with new ways to elevate them. This custard base seems pretty standard, but each ingredient was chosen very deliberately to help bolster our graham cracker. Let's start with the custard base, no surprise here, CAP Vanilla Custard.
CAP Vanilla Custard is universally accepted as a solid canvas to paint upon when it comes to developing a custard recipe, and there is no exception here. It's eggy. It's rich and buttery. It's thick, creamy and sweet. I didn't want to bring it too high, because that depth and intrigue was going to come from our cream and vanilla addition. I like taking a custard and accentuating it with the proper cream, and the proper vanilla. It just works.
DIYFS Holy Vanilla found it's home here because I decided I wanted to keep things dark. It's a superb vanilla. Malty and creamy with a tad of spice that leans towards extract. Crack them beans, baby. The rich vanilla sinks into the custard and thickens it up, all while bringing a maltiness that plays off not only the custard base, but the graham cracker. It helps bring dimension and clarity to the graham cracker which helps deliver a more accurate end product. Nothing too out of the box with this one, it just fits.
INW Creme Brulee is what sets this custard apart for me. I mean honestly, this is just another custard, but it has this delectable brown sugar note accompanied by creamy vanilla. It's not quite burnt but more of a bubbly caramelization of sugar. It again, not only brings depth to our custard, but our graham cracker as well. Brown sugar and custard? Sign me up. Sticky brown sugar graham crackers in a delicious vanilla custard? Put me in coach.
And there you have it. Crunchy, crumbly graham crackers and a robust vanilla custard sure to satisfy you bakery heads like me. Hope you enjoy.
Apple crumble! The apple is not subtle, the cinnamon is not overwhelming, and the crumbly graham is on point :) Hope you enjoy it!
Apple Fuji FA + Pair of Pears INW make a nice melty apple, Two Apples INW is added as a fruity apple sweetener. Two Apples INW can work on many fruit mixes as a sweetener, if you keep below 0.5 the apple taste won't be overwhelming (give it a go in pineapple mixes!). The apple in this recipe is not "baked", but sweet and melty.
Cheesecake (GC) TPA + Biscuit Base VTA + Graham Cracker FW create a crumbly, slightly buttery graham cracker base.
Bavarian Cream TPA + Vanilla Bean Gelato TPA are added for mouthfeel, fluffiness, and to blend everything together.
Cinnamon Ceylon FA is a bakery cinnamon, not spicy at low percentages. Can be omitted if you don't want the cinnamon in here. I wouldn't replace it with a hot and spicy cinnamon in this mix.
Let it steep a bit, the crackers used here need some time to develop the full flavor and mouthfeel.
