Kentuky blend is my personal favourite is slightly ashy, woodsy, spicy and with a sweet caramel vibe, here is the main note.
To support it a bit of red burley to keep the earthy tobacco vibe and a touch of virginia to add brightness and sweetnes.
Flv Bourbon adds a nice bourbon sweetness and taste, as well as , a noticeable charred oak, and to make it even more present im using Oak barrel wich gives a cleaner oak top note.
To me FLV Oak Barrel tastes like an old, still wet(altough its quite dry) from storing bourbon, dark wood like taste.
And to smooth out everthing a bit of cream.
Steep Time: You can Snv or either leave it 3-5 days, but after 2 weeks is when flavorah tobaccos come back and bourbon reaches it full potential.
Mix at: 70Vg/30Pg
This ratio is best as 50/50-60/40 are a bit throughty and thin in my opinion.
Also this extra VG adds some sweetness but feel free to choose.
Using @fear 's cardinal base for the tobacco element. Decided to use RY4 Double because i dint want Holy Holy Grail Ry4's caramel note.
Taste great off the shake.
Sippin on some knob smoked bourbon while i vape this. great combo.
Tested at 20 watts in a mtl/rdl setup.
Trying different vanilla/custard bases, I stumbled into this mix which I find specially suggestive.
The Custard base is smooth and rich, and the tobacco notes are well defined and don't get muddled up.
(INW) Custard takes the reign for me (sorry FA Custard Premium!), (DFS) Holy Vanilla and (INW) Shisha Vanilla back it up.
- for a really intense vanilla (as commercial VCTs, pump (INW) Custard to 2.5%)
(FLV) Native Tobacco and (FLV) Kentucky Blend make a dry, leafy tobacco.
(FA) Black Fire puts some smoke in, without the ash and not being too prominent.
Doesn't need much steep, a few days and rip away!
(Black Sabbath's "Master of Reality" released July 21, 1971: as a tribute to one of the greatest albums of all time, for the name of the first song seemed too relevant to this mix. Sorry, no terpenes in the mix!)
I have really been enjoying Flavorah tobacco flavors. They are not harsh or off as alot of other offerings in this area of flavors
I like this combo of KY and Red Burley here. For tobacco lovers I am sure most would agree it id hard to go wrong with Red Burley and.......
FLV Rose Essence adds a unique sweetness to this mix and realy anything i have used it in.
TPA Vanlla Custard nothing you do not already know it is a creamy light vanilla tyoe of flavor but i didnt want that over the top Cap vanilla that is in CAP V1 Custard
INW Shisha Vanilla...just to add some more mouthfeel as well as additional vanilla flavor. I will add that the vanilla in this mix is still on the mild side and you may prefer more
If you mix this please let me know what you think as together we discover and make each other better mixers
The theme for mixer's club was Duets. I decided to take my love for Cardinal and try to see if I could get more tobacco out of it. My problem with Cardinal was always that it was just never enough tobacco flavor. So I decided to try it with Brigade 2506 by @ChemicalBurnVictim as like a peanut butter and jelly tobacco blend.
The results were strange. I first just lifted the holy holy grail ry4 and mixed it with BFP and TA CC. That wasn't working so I added back in everything on both recipes until I had a straight mash up of the two. For one tester, I just threw in some Am4a on a whim at 1%. for some reason that mix worked better than the others. The two recipes needed a bridge to pull them together and I'm guessing that the slightly creamy Am4a was able to bridge that gap between the caramelly HHG and the darker brigade flavorings.
Based on feedback from @ID10-T, I experimented with the levels of Am4a to get it right. I sent him some samples to try with Am4a at 0/0.3/0.5/0.7/0.9% His feedback being that the Am4a stood out too prominently at 1.0 and I was inclined to agree. Testing at various levels we both agreed that 0.5/0.7 were indistinguishable.
So, here it is at the 11th hour as Holy Holy Grail Ry4 v1 fades into diy history... Sacrilege (Amped brigade 2506)
- I do like the 0.9 version as well. It leans more to that creamy bacco side than a mash-up and you can try that out too if you like more bacco and dont mind the distraction.
- just want to take a moment to thank the Mixer's club for encouragement and feedback and to ID10-T for helping me to get the levels perfect and trying out some samples to nail it down.
A smooth tobacco vape,creamy,with a nice coconut aftertaste and hints of chocolate.Kentucky blend is quite present,helping to keep the tobacco up front.Sweet coconut flv is more like a coconut cream and blends really well with the tobacco here.Although i shake and vape it the next day,it really gets better after a week steeping
Banana cigar with a hint of vanilla. What's in a while I get sick of Sweet bakery in custard Vapes. Tank or two of this clears my palate right back with the sweet stuff. This is in my opinion is a really good cigar vape. With fresh banana and a small hint of vanilla he might just forget your vaping a tobacco.
Finally discovered that the infamous V-GOD Silver vanilla profile was: custard! (plues some vanillin, and a ton of sweetener). This is no clone, it is way better (checked with buddys) and the tobacco is really present.
This (INW) Custard lets the tobacco shine, with different accents that make it interesting on each vape.
(FLV) Cured and (FLV) Kentucky give it the spice and smoke
(FLV) Red Burley adds tones of dark, sweet cocoa
(FLV) Connecticut Shade is an intense, full tasty accent (do not overdo or it reigns all!)
and (FLV) Native is the sweet connection to the vanillas.
(DFS) Holy Vanilla delivers (specially for the slightly vanilla blind, like me!)
(INW) Custard is the hidden ingredient, which loses its desert profile to support the tobaccos brilliantly.
Vanillas need to steep, tobaccos are great on SNV but will evolve pleasantly. Give it at least 4 days for 70% VG so it all blends well.
Having failed with many vanillas for tobacco (and I have like 8 now), being a bit vanilla blind (but loving the stuff!) was looking for a profile that hit like infamous V-GOD Silver. This $$ juice has an excessively sweet vanilla profile (saturates on my Entheon clone!) but is not too bad on an RDA, the tobacco is hidden in the back but is regrettably enjoyable. This recipe being far away, but IMHO much better! SNV okay, but vanilla rises in 4-7 days.
INW Biscuit - an amazing sweet, full, delicate vanilla biscuit which holds nicely with the tobacco
DFS Holy Vanilla - I'm afraid for a slightly vanilla-impaired like myself it is amazing, as hyped!
The rest is a classic Flavorah tobacco, which comes alive after 1 week steeping. I went with:
FLV Kentucky Blend - the ash profile, wich needs a little help from its colleagues
FLV Native Tobacco - probably my favorite from Flavorah, spicy bright (I vape it at 4% with no shame!)
FLV Red Burley - gives it the dark, chocolaty profile and connects with the heavy vanilla
