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.

Honey Custard Tobacco

INW Gold for Pipe has a bit of metallic note that requires a bit of bending but the flavor itself is an incredible honey pipe tobacco that I've wanted to use for a while now. VT Golden Syrup brings that honey note found in Gold For Pipe forward, fills it out, and adds richness that was needed to blend both the honey and custard layer. OOO Creme Brulee is very toasted and creamy but lacked the true custard note which is where TFA Vanilla Custard comes in. I have struggled to find a custard that works well with tobaccos and overlooked TFA Vanilla Custard many times, but I find this to be my favorite custard in general for it's flexibility. FLV Fucking Native.. enough said. Anyone should know by now my love for FLV Native is beyond belief. It's an amazing dry tobacco that I've found hard not to put in any tobacco. If you don't have it, grab it, I love it. I really do love this mix with .6% FLV Virginia to add that light, spicy, golden tobacco flavor that really does fit with the honey profile... BUT with the help of Alfred Pudding going against my better judgement I went with FLV Kenutcky Blend at the same percentage because it adds that bold tobacco that provides a great balance of tobacco and custard.

This is the version I chose to release, if you like more custard than tobacco just bump the custard up to 1.5-2%. If you get pepper from TFA VC sub with FA Premium.

In a slightly intoxicated state on night, I figured a strawberry cigarette was a good idea.

When I woke up the next morning, I realized it WAS a good idea. This is a simple mix that somehow has loads of complexity. Notes below.

THE CIGARETTE
FLV Kentucky Blend/FLV Virginia Tobacco - After months of testing different tobaccos to create IPA Smoke, I realized that these two work really well together to create a pseudo-cigarette profile. The Kentucky Blend is earthy, dark, dirty, and deep. It has smokey notes in it, some subtle sweetness, but overall, it's just a delicious dark pipe tobacco that really gives some "ash" on the back end after a few days of steeping. Virginia Tobacco, is light and dry. It has more of that light cigarette tobacco feel to it. There's some bitterness that plays really nicely with the sweetness of Kentucky Blend. In this mix, using Virginia Tobacco at a higher percentage helps fight the overt sweetness we get from the strawberry and brown sugar. Back in college, I made a friend that rolled his own cigarettes using a blend of cherry pipe tobacco with some full bodied cigarette tobacco. I fell in love with those smokes. To me, the mix of FLV Kentucky Blend with FLV Virginia Tobacco is almost a perfect emulation of those cigarettes I used to bum from him.

THE STRAWBERRY
INW Shisha Strawberry/TPA Brown Sugar - When working with profiles like tobaccos, custards, ice creams, etc, I've found that INW Shisha Strawberry works incredibly well. I typically rock the FA Strawberry/CAP Sweet Strawberry combination when I'm creating full fruit profiles. But in this mix, using that combination was pretty disgusting. Which isn't too surprising. Who wants a candied strawberry profile with a dirty cigarette? Probably no one. Or maybe a fucking coward. Who knows. But with INW Shisha Strawberry, we get a nice blend of a deep, slightly overripe, authentic strawberry with a touch of sweetness. I've read before that mixing INW Shisha Strawberry with things like caramel and dark sugar doesn't really work. While that may be true for typical application, we can see that this is not your standard strawberry recipe. In this, the addition of TPA Brown Sugar not only amplifies the nuances within the tobaccos, but also nearly exaggerates the overripe sweetness of the strawberry.

STEEP TIME
Shake and vape is definitely good, but after 3 days, the strawberries and tobaccos blend together into something special. Before the steep, the two stay fairly separate, but after a few days, they meld together and we get, truly, a strawberry cigarette.

This is a weird profile, I admit. It's strange, not an ADV by any stretch of the imagination. However, I find myself constantly wanting it for a few hits. It's really odd, really tasty, and a good way for ya boy to start off 2019.

A tobacco mix,in which the tobacco flavours were chosen for their special characteristics.Hondurian Ligero(SM) because it is smooth and slightly sweet.Cured tobacco (flv) for the woody nutty notes-Kentucky blend (flv) for the nutty-slightly leather-caramel notes and to enhance the sweet notes of hondurian ligero and cured tobacco.Aged bourbon cream (RF) and madagascar bourbon vanilla(TPA),combine well to give deep,darker creamy note that blends well with the kentucky bourbon and smoothens the final mix
The mix needs to steep for 5-7 days,for the creams and bourbon to come in place

Flv Red burley is a beautiful flavor on it's own with its deep dark notes and spice pairing it with Kentucky blend is a match made with its spice carmel tones. This is where Milk and Honey plays it's role to add a toasted rich mouth feel, along with the freshness of red apple sitting along side the pear.. this is a excellent ADV in my opinion. Great as a shake and vape. Enjoy!

Ginger, Pear, Tobacco

If you decide to try this or it inspires you to mix something similar, please thank @ChemicalBurnVictim. He was one of the sources of inspiration and it was his suggestion to switch from using FLV Virginia Tobacco to FLV Oriental Tobacco that gave it that Turkish pipe tobacco vibe that I was looking for.

This all started with wanting to “fix” INW Falcon Eye to be more like a combination of what INW told me it would be, what CBV told me it tasted like to him, and what I tasted. CBV said it mostly tasted like ginger to him; my theory is that his constant vaping of tobaccos makes it easy for him to pick out anything in a tobacco flavor that isn’t tobacco. When I tried Falcon Eye, I got a sweet cigarette tobacco with a solid hit of spice, but while that spice tasted more like ginger than any other spice I could identify, it wasn’t clearly ginger to me. It was weird, but nice.

Oddly, INW calls Falcon Eye “tobacco with a hint of pear,” with no mention of ginger or spice. Fucking Poland. It did not taste like pear to me, but it did have a strong hint of that sort of earthy skin note that some pear flavors have, without the rest of the pear’s pomaceous body and juicy sweetness.

All this just made me really want a ginger-pear-bacco, so I made one, and it turned out pretty great. I used NF Ginger to pull that odd gingery-spice in a distinctly ginger direction. There’s a good reason why this is one of only two of the whole Nature Flavors’ line you can buy at BCF. It’s super solid as a ginger flavor, very spicy, super accurate. Not nearly as sharp and wet as the very fresh-tasting Vape Train Ginger Root, so probably a bit more versatile than that one. But, still more along the lines of raw ginger rather than dried ginger spice powder, ginger ale syrup, or candied ginger. Very slightly earthy, not floral at all, some thick body to it but not syrupy or creamy. As much as I enjoy FLV Ginger and CAP Gingerbread, if I could only have one ginger, it would be this one.

I used MB Shape Up Pear to fill in the missing pear. This is easily the best single-flavor pear out there. It’s everything you could want in a pear and would otherwise have to mix different concentrates together to get. It’s bold and sweet and juicy and crisp, with a lot of apple-like texture and body, and just a little earthy realism, all well-balanced, smooth, with no off notes for me. Just a perfect pear. If I could only have one pear flavor it would be FA because it’s so useful in sweetening and juicifying a plethora of other fruits, but if I want to really vape a PEAR, this is the one.

And then there were the tobaccos, meant to take the mild, malleable tobacco in Falcon Eye and give it some definition as a robust but lighter pipe tobacco that could complement pear and ginger. I wanted to avoid darkness, cocoa, coffee, caramel, and nutty accents that the pipe-like tobaccos have, but still have a pipe tobacco. I wanted to walk into a weird boutique tobacco shop and see some light brown leaf, be told it’s “ginger pear pipe tobacco,” and have Falkor be a deep nose-full of what that smelled like. Users of FLV Virginia Tobacco can maybe tell why I went with a Kentucky + Virginia first? It was a mistake, though. The result was roll-your-own cigarette ginger pear tobacco. CBV came to the rescue by suggesting Oriental instead of Virginia, which until now was an underused flavor for me, and keeping the little bit of that subtly spicy and darker Kentucky Blend in the mix.

Steep Time: This is actually great after sitting overnight. The ginger will taste strong at first, but after a few hits I get used to it. Still, it’s more of a GINGER pear tobacco. Shortly afterward, the FLV tobaccos seem to fade a bit and more pear comes out more, making a ginger PEAR tobacco. After a couple of weeks, they come back, the ginger settles down, and the mix stays relatively stable. In the end, the pear is no longer as prominent as I originally intended it to be, but the juice has that elusive, perfect wet/dry balance between the pear and tobaccos, which, together with the spice keeping things interesting, makes it hard to put down and worth putting out.

If you have not tried @Fear Cardinal recipe, please do yourself a favor and mix it. It is delish. Summer and Fall of 2017, I kept at least 500ml of this ready to vape all the time. I have a problem with peaches, I love them. So, I thought what would Cardinal be like with Peach? So, I tried it and came up with GA Cardinal. Why not Peach Cardinal? Well, have you seen a Peach Cardinal?

So, I kept the base recipe the same. I added FA White Peach and FA Apricot. What comes out of this, is a delicious RY4 tobacco with a caramelized Peach on the exhale. I am in love.

Enjoy

I original made a version of this recipe for mixers club. Tasted great at first but after a few weeks steep I wasn't pleased with it. Dave Id10T suggested i add some FLV Apple Filling to it so that is what I did. Messed around with the percentages and gave my testers a good steep. Going on 3 months now and my tester tastes as good as it did after 7 days. Quite pleased with how this came together and in time for the fall/winter recipe time.

FLV Apple Filling: adds a great cinnamon spice note and improves the overall apple note of the mix.

FA Apple Pie: Not really any apple in this but it does add a nice bakery note.

Pur Country Apple: Brings a syrupy apple with no cinnamon or spice to the mix.

HS French Vanilla Icecream: Brings a creamy vanilla element to the mix.

My tobacco combo: Kentucky has some mild spice notes that pair well with the cinnamon in FLV Apple Filling & FLV Turkish. FLV Turkish is mostly spice and it helps keep the Kentucky from fading away in a long steep.
