Att: Impatient mixes that do not like to steep. this one isn't bad right out of the gate peaks at around 3 weeks.
FLV Pound cake and And Custard make a very nice sweet vanilla bed for this mix. Cap Butter Cream and FA Butterscotch are blended equal parts to make one play against the other adding the extra little bit of creamy buttery notes that FA is missing. FA does a good job bringing the melted brown sugar of real butterscotch but lacks a bit on the buttery aspect. Irish cream and Jamaican run are in the mix to give it a bit of a dark liquor type exhale. At 5.75% total flavor some people will think this cant possibly be tasteful enough but I am not a super sensitive vapor with extreme taste buds and I can guarantee this mix is a flavorful one. It taste good right out of the gate but it definitely benefits from letting it rest a week so that the Jamaican rum and Irish Cream fall in their place.

This is a creme brulée with a lemongrass and ginger infused twist.
INW Creme Brulée is delicious but not enough on its own for what I wanted, so I lobbed in some FLV Custard to add a little richness without extra weight,. and Sweet Coconut for a hint of sweet slightly toasted fluffiness. These three work well together to mimic the kind of creme brulée I dig.
The Ginger and Lemongrass combo works as well in sweet and savory concoctions, so pairing them here wasn't too much of a risk. Lemongrass is low because that ish is expensive, and it still comes through well enough at .25 to be noticeable without giving off any lemon pledge or woody notes.
You may want to add a few drops of INW cactus to it too, because it can feel a little dry - but don't overdo it.
Give it a week to settle down, and enjoy!
Massive thanks to @SlashaLO for the review and the suggestion to up the ginger a smidge. You were bang on the money and I've updated the recipe.
For Week 7 - Feeling Heroic? The Year of Mixing Challenge -
My hero, the Eleventh Doctor. Out of the all the Doctor Who's I've watched Eleven is my favorite...cause bowties are cool. In the first episode as the new doctor, Eleven visits a young Amelia Pond where he finds he likes fish fingers and custard. Well I'm not making fish fingers and custard as a flavor, so I'm going with deep fried apple slices dipped in custard. So this inspired by recipe adds one of my favorite fruits - cause I'm not a super fan of strawberries.
Going for a straight fried apple dipped in a funnel cake type of coating, no cinnamon, no spices.

Edit To Review updates: After it's steep of a little over a week, I decided the funnel cake should probably be lowed a little because it is just a little too heavy. The apple notes were brought up a touch, but not much and just a little more custard notes. Otherwise it is quite tasty. All changes have been made to the recipe as it reads now.
Was looking to play around with that FA almond and came up with this. After a 3 day steep it’s a super smooth and creamy almond cookie custard and balanced enough that you can taste everything that’s going on in the mixture. The almond I believe is what bringing it all together blended in to the back ground. Any feedback is appreciated but I really enjoy this one as it is. Hope you all enjoy it too!
I was try to go for an authentic preserve type Blueberry in this recipe and I believe the HA AND MB Paired together achieves this the MB has sweetness that goes all the way thru the flavoring it could most definitely be a single flavor mix all by itself, the HA BB is the opposite it has a tartness on the draw and gets sweeter thru the pull.I also added MB Eden Apple for alittle juiciness and to brighten up the blueberries. . So I chose FLV custard and fresh cream(FA)
As my custard base in future mixes I may add some CAP custard for its egginess and to make the custard fuller... But for now it's still good wanna see where the FLV ends up in a week or so
Added a small amt of super sweet to smooth out the edges
