I was looking for a tobacco blend that wasn't sweet, but didn't want to go all the way into ashtray territory either. I wanted to capture the deep, rich aroma of a freshly opened pouch of Drum rolling tobacco and add a little smoke to that, and this comes close enough for government work.
FLV Red Burley and FLV Kentucky Blend are the "body" tobaccos and establish a deep "brown" foundation. FLV Oak Barrel dries things out a little bit and accents the woody elements, while FLV Beer Nuts adds just enough saltiness to push things a bit further into dry/savory territory.
INW Tobacco DNB adds ash and smoke, and helps counteract the sweetness of the VG.
OOO Smokey Bacon pushes things further into savory territory and enhances the smoky/ashy notes from INW Tobacco DNB. It adds some of the missing elements I was looking for in dry tobacco profiles.
This recipe sounds a little scary at first blush with INW Tobacco DNB at 1% and the presence of OOO Smokey Bacon, but I promise it doesn't taste like an overflowing pub ashtray seasoned with scorched bacon bits. Instead, it's a very pleasant, dry, savory, smoky tobacco. It's vapable straight from the mixing table, but if you let it sit overnight after mixing, it gets even better.
It's tailored for MTL builds, and my reference build for this recipe is a 1 ohm 26 gauge Kanthal coil, 3mm internal diameter, in a QP Gata RTA, running around 18-20 watts. For additional reference, I mixed this using Liquid Barn's 12mg premixed base, which is 80% VG and 20% PG. After mixing, it comes out around 75ish% VG.
(All Flavorah recipe)
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.
Note : Flavor Monks Tobacco bastards Bourbon # 9 is used in this recipe @ 2.5%, it is not listed in the ATF FM list.
My thoughts on this recipe ..I was going for Smooth Tobaccoish flavor with some graham and Brown sugar notes I also used Flavor Monks Tobacco Bastard Bourbon #9 to give it a gentleman's flavor , the AP was used to add nuttiness to the mix .. its a pretty good mix very pleasent ..almost an after dinner type feel... Sitting on the porch watching the Southern sun set mmmm mmm yall come back no yah hear....
The Ruby, part one in a Tatanka tobacco trilogy.

FLV Vanilla Custard and a pinch of FLV Pistachio are combined with the best tobaccos and aromas to create a tobacco vape bold and subtle at the same time.
I combined FLV Tatanako and FLV Red Burley, added FLV Oakbarrel for a light woody taste and FLV Butterscotch for a rich and caramelly flavour and sweetness. Finally a little FLV Smoked Butterscotch for that buttery baked, caramel, and smoked notes.
Steep, it does need at least 3 weeks to come to bloom.
A cherry oak pipe tobacco. Pretty simple.
A while back @matthewkocanda was talking about a cherry oak pipe tobacco that someone used to roll for him (or something like that.) Thought it sounded like a fun thing to try out, so I mixed this up, and it’s pretty gosh darn good.
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!!!!
