Ok guys, you better man the f*ck up before you try this. This is a mans mans man cigar. It embodies what you think of when you think of a man. A cigar that is reminiscent of Wood/Spice, Beer, Coffee, Bourbon, and tobacco (of course). If you don't have any hair on your chest, you better get some so this can knock it off and grow it back thicker. It needs about a week to sit before you try it, so that gives you a week to grow up before you enjoy this.
Liquor portion inspired by https://alltheflavors.com/users/Juicefairy and her delicious Tipsy Coconut (It's great!), but I bumped up the "call an Uber" factor a smidge to make sure the creams don't drown that aspect out.
FA Cinnamon Ceylon for good measure.
FLV Wild Melon and FLV Cantaloupe make up the melon profile. FLV Wild Melon is great, but I've not used FLV Cantaloupe before...no time like the present.
Bavarian Cream, Cream and Vanilla Swirl complete the recipe with a thick and rich milk base to tone down any sharpness found in the liquors and tie the whole recipe together.
This recipe was originally called Red Hot Melon Horchata and I used FLV Red Cinnamon which is a fireball/red hot candy type flavor. I thought it would be a good twist but even at 3 drops per 30ml it took over the entire recipe. I was forced to go with a safer FA Cinnamon Ceylon.
This is my bourbon banana foster turned into a creme brulee. I was watching mixing vixens last night and they were doing creme brulee's and I remembered I had never released this take on one of my favorite recipes!!! Sorry for the lack of notes all I did was added creme brulee and custard by inawera and it worked great!!!
Tipsy is blend of "Coconut Rum Cake and Bread Pudding covered with a nice warm toasty glaze"
Vanilla cupcake and Vanilla pudding make an amazing cake base that provides all the butter notes and vanilla notes to create a Tortuga rum cake. The combination of FA Jamaican Rum, FLV Bourbon and FLV Sweet Coconut provides the delicious Malibu Rum note in this mix. Bread pudding is creamy and warm and thick and that's where the crème brûlée comes in to add all those creamy eggy notes with hints of toasted topping. I helped out the sweetness and added extra cream and toasted notes with a bit of toasted marshmallow.. Marzipan is a big player here don't be fooled by its small percentage it is used to tie in the coconut, the cream and the booze into one final delicious creamy boozy desert blend.
I never found a coffee / tobacco recipe I liked. They all were just a mess, either not enough coffee or not enough tobacco or just off in general. I found Connecticut Shade and knew it had to be the one. This is good S&V, gets even better after a couple weeks, but I'll say 10 days would be fine.
This is a really interesting flavor to me. A slightly spiced, wet, and earthy tobacco, with a little cacao and bourbon. There is also some coffee here, and it meshes perfectly with dark bean. It's a little top heavy, but other stuff helps with that.
Red Burley / Kentucky Blend:
A perfect combo to give a little more tobacco, round out the Shade, and dry things out a bit.
Not much to say. I started with this at .4, but it seemed to fade into / blend into the Shade too much, so I bumped it up. Nice bit of coffee without that awful burned popcorn.
This is the bridge between the Shade and everything else. Shade can really take over a mix, and is hard to get into the middle. Bourbon does this really well, and adds a little warmth and bourbon for you boozehounds putting liquor in your coffee.
I like this stuff as an accent. Hell I even like it more as a main note. Here it adds just a little to the shades spices, and makes the bourbon not so bourbon-y. I know a lot of people don't like it, leave it out if you want, but it's quite nice here.
ChrisDVR told me this would get more views if I used a nice pair of boobies for the picture.
It's a Bourbon-flavored cigar, of sorts.
This started out as an attempt at a bourbon-flavored cigar for /r/MixersClub. It's still a bourbon-flavored cigar, but at some point it became more about celebrating the pairing of the two Kentucky concentrates than about producing an authentic cigar. TFA Kentucky Bourbon is a bit boozy, yet sweet, with that unique corny sweetness of sour mash whiskey. FLV Kentucky Blend is a bright yet ashy, slightly spicy tobacco. They make beautiful bluegrass music together.
FLV Bourbon supports the TFA version with richness and an authentic charred oak barrel flavor, which the tobaccos also enjoy. FLV Red Burley fills out the Kentucky Blend and makes it richer, darker, and more satisfying. FW Salted Caramel enhances both the tobaccos and bourbons and builds a dark, sweet but not too sweet bridge between them. FA Cuban Supreme isn't necessary for a satisfying bourbon-bacco vape, but without it, the result is rather soggy. A touch of it here wraps all this up in a somewhat green but dry cigar wrapper and brings it back within the realm of a bourbon-flavored cigar.
Steep Time is truly just a best after recommendation, not a requirement here. This is great at 3 days, just enough time for the bourbon to relax a little and everything to come together. A few days longer, and the tobaccos will fade a bit. This is a good time to vape it if you want more of a sweet bourbon vape with just a little tobacco kick. But at two weeks, they're back and everything works together as intended.
