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.
A hip granola tobacco vape, as hipster-icious as they get. It's bold, it's woody, it's nutty, it's got dried fruit, it's sophisticated, complex and will keep you interested for hours. I'm in love with FLV Granola and I had to share this recipe because this wonderful flavor needs more love (and recipes for it).
FLV Granola: The star of the show. Really great as a cereal vape if you help it with some crunch, and so unique that I had to test it with tobacco after the first SFT. It's a strong flavor with lots of stuff going on in it and I'm surprised I had to use it above 1%, but it's in company with very complex and deep tobacco.
FLV Cured / FLV Red Burley: Two of the greatest tobacco flavors known to mankind. The Burley is here just to give volume and depth to Cured.
FLV Bourbon: Not a full bourbon flavor by itself, but its dark oak notes fit so well with FLV Cured.
FLV Oatmeal Raisin: Granola may carry some raisin notes but they are vague and to me they're more dried fruit candy than raisins. Oatmeal Raisin has different fresh raisin notes that make your granola even hipper.
Careful with it, a drop per 10-15ml is enough. Try the recipe without it if you don't have it, but consider getting it if you like raisins, it's the Rich Cinnamon of raisin flavors, it will last you forever.
This is not a bad shake-and-vape but FLV flavors are very concentrated and need some time and shaking to saturate the VG. The percentages might get tweaked after the first test batches pass the month mark.
A. Skip the raisin and add 0.75% FLV Sweet Coconut (and amplify it with 0.15% FLV Coconut if it's too light for you) to throw some candied coconut in your granola and take the entire recipe into Castle Long territory.
B. Skip the raisin and add 1.5% DIYFS Holly Vanilla if you need some vanilla with your tobacco. If the Holly Vanilla/FLV Cured combo is too woody for your taste, add 2% CAP French Vanilla. If you're tempted to try other vanillas like INW Shisha or Vanilla Swirl, beware most of them will mud the tobacco part.
C. Skip the FLV tobaccos and raisin and add 4% FA Soho. A very different experience but just as good (I was actually thinking of releasing a seperate recipe for Soho)
FLV Cured / FLV Red Burley: If you have mixed with these (or FLV Native) you can play around with the tobacco part of the recipe to suit your taste better, but I have to say Cured was the best match when I initially tried pairing FLV Granola with various tobaccos. You could always try the Soho variation.
FLV Bourbon: Try 0.5% of TPA Red Oak
WIld melon is a key player in this, along with bourbon which is a strong profile had to back it down to .5% so it doesnt overpower the mix. FLV virginia is a background flavor alittle mild and earthy notes to give support to FLV KY blend, as for Kentucky blend brings full body tobacco and some ash to the mix.
Overall i believe this is an interesting mix
I haven't released a recipe in a while, here's an idea I'd been playing around with literally since the Beginner Blending competition. Inspired by my boy RiFF.
A tobacco vape with notes of vanilla bourbon throughout, and a nice little slap of banana on the inhale. Notes and all that shit below, as always.
FLV Banana / TPA Banana Cream - y'all know how much I like TPA BC, but I usually pair it with LA Banana Cream to create a more interesting and full flavoured banana note. However, after using FLV Banana, I found much more success. FLV's banana option carries a lot of the same flavour properties of LA's option, so if you're like me, expect some of that more candied, banana runts type note from it. However, I noticed more body to this option. There was some silky mouthfeel to it, a little less banana candy, and more of some sort of unholy creation that is a super sweet banana. I prefer this combination over the TPA/LA approach. We end up with something that is truly reminiscent of some sweetened banana cream, almost reminds me of banana milk or yogurt. This creates some nice sweetness to balance out the recipe, while also giving us some boost to the tobaccos in both flavour and mouthfeel.
TPA Kentucky Bourbon / FLV Bourbon - this is my go to bourbon/whiskey flavour combination. Usually I would keep TPA's option higher in the mix, but the more I've messed with FLV Bourbon, the more I realize this is the better front note for a bourbon. We're still missing some of the depth needed for a good bourbon flavour, but the TPA comes in to provide some of that bite and warmth, while FLV keeps those dark, sweet, oak notes prevalent.
FLV Red Burley - okay. So the more I've messed with FLV Red Burley, the more I realize it's almost not a good tobacco for me. I find it sickeningly sweet and thick, and while it carries a lot of wonderful flavour, I can't get away from that overt sweetness. However, this is why I thought it'd be a good match for this recipe. All of these flavour profiles have a tendency to carry some sweetness, just in different ways. The Red Burley hits us with some notes of sweetened peanut butter at times, while still giving that sense of a full bodied, yet sweet tobacco. The banana plays with these notes very well to bring some neutral fruit note as well as that earthy sweetness we get from bananas in general. And as always, the bourbon acts as a counterpoint to all of that sweetness. While it does carry some, it's still a more sharp and pronounced note that helps accent everything else.
FLV Eggnog / FLV Oak Barrel / FLV Virginia Tobacco - these act as our accents and support for the recipe. I am falling more and more in love with FLV Eggnog the more I use it. It is simply what is claims to be, a straight up eggnog with notes of fall/winter spices that accent the tobacco and bourbon quite nicely, while the thick mouthfeel boosts the bananas to a new level. The best thing I can compare it to is a cooked or fried banana/plantain flavour. The FLV Oak Barrel is here to add some more depth and complexity to the bourbon, for one thing I always find missing in our options for whiskey and bourbon is that wood note. Oak Barrel is perfect for that, and keeps the bourbons from feeling too sugary or sweet. Finally, FLV Virginia Tobacco, I know there are better options out there for a more dirty tobacco flavour, but I simply don't have them yet, so this was the option. Virginia Tobacco balances out that overt sweetness and syrupy note from Red Burley, while still pushing this recipe to be a tobacco forward profile. I love these three accents in this recipe, for all of them act as both supporting notes to certain concentrates, while being counterpoints to others. A perfect symbiotic relationship.
Steep time - While this is good on a shake, give it at least a week to let the flavours get to know each other. As it continues to age, the flavours start to pronounce themselves more noticeably, our banana notes take the inhale, the bourbon carries us through the vape, and the exhale gives us all of those complex tobacco notes.
This recipe has been a labour of love of the past few months, and I'm happy with the result. While the use of RiFF RAFF as inspiration is in name only, I woud like to think that the Neon Python himself would enjoy something like this while he's kickin it at the Kodeine Kastle with his pups.
This is my vanilla bourbon barrel custard!! I made the first renditions of this recipe weeks before the bourbon barrel vanilla cream recipe I just released so this was the inspiration for the bourbon barrel portion of that recipe.
The Bourbon Barrel:
I used a delicious combination of flavorah flavors. I used bourbon at .85% just enough so you know there is bourbon in the recipe not over powering in any way. If you like it boozy then you might want to turn up the bourbon a little because its more of an accent but its definitely present. Oak barrel is a light flavor but a great flavor to accent the oak barrel. I then added just a touch of caramel and butterscotch just to accentuate the sweetness in a bourbon barrel.
The Vanilla Custard:
It looks a little heavy handed but this is my third rendition and this was the one that tasted the best. I used 2.5% of both tfa and capella"s vanilla custard's. I wanted a creamy custard so I added vanilla whipped cream by capella at 2%. I also added 1% cream fresh by flavor art and 1.5% holy vanilla. As heavy handed as this recipe looks in the vanilla department after a 10+ day steep this turns into something special. A delicious vanilla custard with a delicately infused bourbon barrel back note. Definitely a good change in pace if your like me you need something different. Enjoy!!!
Just a fun recipe using some of flavorah's newly released flavors. I figured I would put some recipes out using some of the lesser talked about new flavors. Smooth vanilla is an extremely strong flavor .20% and there is no denying that its in the recipe. Vanilla bean is a lot lighter of a vanilla than smooth vanilla but when added to sweet cream and cream it makes a smooth vanilla cream
My bourbon barrel:
I used a combination of oak barrel, bourbon, butterscotch, and caramel. Oak barrel is a light flavor but yet a very accurate oak barrel with a little bourbon butterscotch and caramel added and it is transformed into a whiskey soaked bourbon oak barrel. butterscotch and caramel add to the sweet notes in the oak barrel.. I added a touch of sweetness to sweeten the mix up a bit. Feel free to use or not use a sweetener of your choice me I like flavorah sweetness!!!!
Just a good smooth bourbon barrel vanilla cream with subtle butterscotch and caramel back notes and of coarse the bourbon oak barrel!!!$$$ let me know what you think in the review section. This is surprisingly good after a shake but definetly will get better with age. I would say a 5 day steep and it is 100% but definitely good to vape on a shake!!! ENJOY!!!!
Burr! Its Gold in here! There most be some mixers in the atmospher!
Here's another mix with my favorite tobacco, Gold Ducat. At 2% you get a dry, honey esque, dark tobacco flavor. Any higher and it starts to take over the mix and gives notes of clove/plum/raisin, which I didn't want here.
Kentucky Bourbon/FLV Bourbon- The Kentucky isn't here for its alcoholic qualities, but more for its warmth. It sits in the background, where the FLV bourbon works with the top notes of Gold Ducat. It adds charred oak top notes and a nice sweetness to the overall vape. It's not overtly sweet, but it works in the here to moisten things up a little.
FLV Red Burley- One of the most versatile tobacco's I know of. It's purpose in this mix is to add a tobacco base/accent. At 0.5% it's slightly leafy and woody. The "stick" note goes perfectly with FLV Bourbon to create something that is reminiscent of an oak barrel.
This is good as a S&V, but there will be some separation of flavors. By day 10 everything settles down and becomes one.
I want to shout out @Fear, @ID10-T, @Kopel, and @Concrete River. I'm truly thankful for the reviews and notes these guys have given the community and wouldn't have had the knowledge to make this mix possible. ✌
Bourbon, a fine calogne, and an earthy tobacco room note. Just like you walked in to a congressman's office to do some shady shit.
This is an all artificial version of an NET mix I was working on a while back, but it just wasn't coming together. The problem was most likely that I was using RF SC Bourbon, but I eventually just moved on to other things. Got some of these FLV in, and decided to give it another go.
Red Burley and Kentucky Blend make a really nice combo here to create an earthy, smoky tobacco with a bit of ash.
Bourbon and Wood Spice top off that bold Tobacco with a bit of manliness. There's a bit of oak in the bourbon, which plays really well with the Wood Spice, which tastes the way I wish I smelled. The actual bourbon part is quite nice as well. I'm not really a bourbon drinker, but if I were, I'd want it to taste like this. It's a fancy bourbon. It's got body, and it's thick. It's more than just a bourbon flavor, it beefs everything up and makes it all feel full in the mouth.
Heat is here to give it a little punch. It's not real noticeable, but you'll be able to tell it's there. It's not quite enough to turn the bourbon in to Hot Damn, but it's enough to feel.
I recommend making 10% dilutions of Heat and Wood Spice since they are pretty strong. A drop too much in a 30 ml could turn this in to hot cologne. Stay safe out there.
I liked this quite a bit fresh, and it just gets better as it ages. Wood Spice is a bit strong at first, but it calms down after a couple days.
Caramel Apple Pie Tobacco (Capt.) blend with a touch of cream and bourbon to round things out.
The apple pie consists of CAP Fuji Apple, FA Apple Pie, JF Dulce de Leche, and FLV Rich Cinnamon (one drop per 10mL).
The tobacco blend is an all FLV mix . . . Red Burley, Virginia Tobacco, and Kentucky Blend.
Added a touch of FLV Cream and FLV Bourbon to act as a bridge between the apple pie and tobaccos. The slight suggestion of booze from the bourbon has this flavor profile leaning towards an apple pie moonshine. Got me to thinking about fall weather sitting around a campfire sipping moonshine from a jar (Mason).
Off the SNV this is a great mix . . . will update after a steep and, possibly, slightly bringing the caramel and bourbon notes a little more forward in the mix. As of now, I'm enjoying this immensely!
Yes . . . those percentages are a bit high (understatement) . . . but I'll be damned if this isn't one fine apple tobacco vape. After a short 7 day steep, this is truly magnificent! Dropped JF Dulce de Leche for FA Caramel and threw some FLV Cured into the mix.. I also doubled the percentage of FLV Bourbon. This is the juice I reach for when I get home to wind down from a hectic day (e.g. 26 4th graders in an inclusion classroom). I mix this 60vg/40pg and load it into a solid MTL tank (EVL Reaper). Definitely a recipe I will return to when this 30 runs out.
